RA10175 is more than just an online libel law.

It also deals with Cyber-squatting, Internet fraud, Identity theft, Child pornography and others.

Yes, RA010175 needs revisions and some passages are extremely jologs, but to repeal the whole thing is just plain counterproductive.

Let's go for revision rather than repeal.

Revise RA10175.

The saddest thing is: if we compel our senators to take a stand on any important issue facing the nation today, we will find out that a good number of them are very much as pathetic as Sotto.

Hopefully, this episode teaches the voting public to take elections seriously. Hopefully, this little situation comedy reminds the voting population that we deserve better and that we must expect more from our public servants.

I suppose, if only for this, Sotto deserves a little bit of gratitude.

Senior Action Stars

Although childish, extremely unlawyerly and completely unbecoming of a Top Magistrate, the twist Corona tried to facilitate in the IC yesterday was quite impressive. The whole presentation, though, ended with a whimper when he tried to leave the Senate but was foiled. He then had to come back in a wheelchair (panindigan na ung hilo) to face a very irked JPE. Spit and run is not an actual legal maneuver. He should have stood his ground and insisted on the waiver challenge before going on with the trial. That would have earned him at least 86 macho points, I think.

On a connected note, bat kaya hindi si Pnoy ang hinamon niya ng bukasan ng dollar account, e si Pnoy naman ang major character sa istorya ng impeachment niya?

He ranted about how the vengeful Haciendero President used and abused his executive powers to persecute a hapless, airconless, diabetic Chief Justice, yet he shied away from a no-holds-barred bank acount duel.

Nabackground check niya na kaya si Pnoy at nalaman niyang walang dollar account ito? Di niya naisip kasi kapos ang imagination? Natakot? Nahiya?

Para kay Denis, Desiree at Mommy.

I can never really claim to know how you feel, but based on the horror I feel when my daughter is hurt (no matter how trivial), I can only imagine the pain you have been carrying every single day for the past several weeks.

Sana ang mga nakalipas na mga araw, ang mga pagpapakita ng pagmamahal kay Daniel at pagdamay sa inyong pagdalamhati ay nakatulong upang mabawasan ang sakit na nadarama mo at ng iyong pamilya.

Daniel will never be forgotten, and he will always be missed.

Someday, we shall remember Daniel and no longer feel grief, but rather remember the beautiful moments we have shared with him and smile.

From me and my family, we hope that all is well with you and your loved ones.

Old Blasphemous Jokes Don't Die

Jesus stepped in front of the woman to protect her from the angry mob's resolve to stone the unclean woman to her death. The mob, upon seeing the rabbi protect the woman, held their anger and fell silent. Jesus gazed upon them, and he called out to the sinless to cast the first stone.



And then another: Thwuck!

Suddenly, crimson was flowing from the woman's forehead. The rabbi turned his bewildered gaze from the bleeding woman to the confused crowd. The crowd parted, Jesus drew near, and he saw a woman about to pick up another rock.

"Nay naman, wag ka na kasi sumali!"

I don't get pro-GMA people. I just don't.

Well, there are those who were able to benefit from her one way or another. Some of her cabalens visited her in St Lukes and declared their loyalty -- loyalty stemming from a dole-out culture. Silang mga nabigyan ng salapi, scholarships, basketball courts, waiting sheds, pustiso, etc.

Siyempre, yung mga politikong nakadikit pa din ke GMA ay ibang hayop ang mga yun. Maaring nakinabang sila ke GMA o me alam si GMA tungkol sa kanila (or both).

Then there are those who are pro-GMA simply because they're anti-Pnoy. It's a stupid way of going about it, but here we are. People should realize it's not always an either/or situation. One can actually be anti-Pnoy and be anti-GMA at the same time. The maxim "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" is something that you use in war, methinks. In the pursuit of good governance, it shouldn't be as simple as that.

I rooted for Aquino during the last election. The operative word is "rooted," past tense. I stopped rooting for the guy when the Comelec declared a winner. After that, I decided to give the government the benefit of the doubt. I would have done the same thing regardless of who won the election. There are people who are still wearing their campaign shirts, still smarting from the election results, and it is through this lens that this present government is being appraised.


So far, wala pa namang nag-akusa ng pagnanakaw sa gobyernong ito, not even made-up ones. Kadalasan, personal na pambabastos ang ginagawa. Nandiyang tawagin ang presidente na abnoy, autistic, bakla, panot, etc. Pati playstation dinamay.

We gave GMA 9 years, what's wrong with giving this government 6 years?
