State of the Nuisance Address


For the nth time the country's favorite nuisance official will deliver the state of our nation. I hope that this one will be another rich source of sarcastic materials for the Philippine blogsphere. The administration has been consistent with this matter.

Do you still remember the three Payatas boys who made the strongest paper boats ever that contained their wishes and was sent to the president through the forces of nature and incredulity?

Do you still remember when Jollibee was elevated as an economic indicator for progress in Mindanao during her Power Point presentation?

I cannot wait for Monday.

It is not just the Fake One who delivers perfect comic flair but so does the other officials.

Can we ever forget the yin and yang performance of Jose De Venecia and Franklin Drilon? Such a priceless performance. I dare Dick Cheney and Nancy Pelosi to imitate such political prowess. They cannot. They simply cannot.

In a highly-scripted address, the audience is equally important. Their applauses and standing ovations are indeed vital to prove the magnificence of the speech. It does not matter if their well-rehearse actions do not have an ounce of credibility. In the end, the media will still report the number of applauses and ovations given to her.

For two days, I was reading the Medium Term Philippine Development Plan of the present administration as a requirement in my Social Welfare Policy class. It was nice. I felt like I was finishing three volumes of fiction tomes.

This Monday, I will be watching the State of the Nation Address. Why? There are no good fantasy films in the theaters.

Pangarap ulit ni Gloria na umulan ng lakas para walang rally.

I dare Madam "Fake One" to produce an even more theatrical speech, at least add some fantasy element that would put Harry Potter and Transformers to shame. Ha!

Here's where our two governments differ. Yours, the President delivers a State Of the Nation Address which is mostly wishes and dreams, while ours the Minister of Finance will Bring down his Annual Budget to guide the Cabinet of the Governing party of the Programs and the Beuacracies (civil servants) of proper actions and details of bills and laws to reflect the budget into reality. And that budget will be the basis for the oppositions to mount their objections and points for debates...a very lively process...and also for the General Public if the elected Government is implementing its campaign promises....

^ Palit po tayo ng leader :)

^ Malamang si Jose Pidol uli ito. Puro ellipses ang punctuation marks at mali-mali ang spelling.

Ang laki ng problema noh?

I-welcome niyo na lang. Nakakaawa naman.
