Of Caviar & Weapons

Posted by Kero at Tuesday, August 11, 2009
We were with the family dentist last night to continue my root canal session. The television was on, maybe to distract me from the tooth drilling. Thank goodness because I was thirsty for news back at home. You see, we don't have cable subscription. The apartment offers free cable connection but we never bothered to avail. We only have one plasma and Andreas is the chief commander of entertainment. For the last 19 months, Barney, Brilliant Baby, Brainy Baby, Classical Baby and Galloping Mind (yes, they are all pirated.....thank you to the chinky-eyed DVD sellers because those educational videos are all bloody expensive) alternately dominate the screen. I swear hubby and I has memorized 135 videos of Barney.

Dr. Gilbert drilled and placed screw on my tooth for the crown. I kept my eyes shut and listened to the politicians screw my country.

Arroyo and her delegation on a recent trip to US are making headlines -- not for meeting Mr. Obama -- but for a posh dinner Le Cirque. Of course, the administration denied paying for the bill, and Cong. Romualdez took responsibility for the $20,000. How about donating that amount to his constituents? But maybe when you have pending court cases, you need a favor from the Arroyo administration so you take them out, stuffed them with caviar and wash their throat with the most expensive wine in the Big Apple.

If Arroyo agreed on the hotdog dinner, maybe the Filipino people will bury her beside Cory when the time comes.

Next there was Manny Villar who is vowing to give up his real estate business if he ever wins the presidency. How about giving it up before declaring his candidacy? But then, a president's monthly pay check is P45,000. It will never be sufficient for the Villars who are used to their status. So my verdict, NO.Even if he wins the presidency, he will NEVER give up his real estate business.He may place it under somebody's name but after six years, he will be far more richer.

Then there was the investigative report from PCIJ - that Arroyo doubled her millions since becoming President. Combine the assets of Aquino, Ramos, and Estrada after their presidency and they will never come close to the wealth Arroyo has amassed. The First Gentleman is a lucky, lucky man. Unemployed but laughing all the way to the bank.

Lastly, people daw are petitoning for Sen. Ninoy Aquino to run for a higher post. Either Vice President or President. His reply, wait for a sign from his deceased mother. Ever thought about finding a wife first, Senator? (correct me if he is married now).

I still have to go back Wednesday night for the crown of my tooth and I am looking forward to the news. I will have the crowning glory but sadly, my country is not even close to living a glorious life.

My only consolation is we are not buying those elite weapons from US unlike Pakistan and India. Then again, we are soo poor the president can only dine at Le Cirque and cannot purchase weapons to protect the Filipino people.

Hello Kero, I can't help but notice your pic in that lovely yellow dress with you kid.
I guess you must be over 5'5"?
I must say you sure look fabulous.

Interesting posting here.
I for one have never trusted any politician.
Practically everyone talks with a forked tongue, as our Native Indians here would say.
Most politicians look after their pockets first.

Of course there are the few good ones, but mostly all are crooks in political clothing.
They fool around with women, same time line their pockets.

Like the old saying, 'every woman has a figure, every man has a price'.
You have a nice day and keep a song in your heart. Best regards, Lee.
