screw the status quo. we need change and we need it now. we need not a leader who plays with words and public funds. we need not a leader whose years of service fall under the 'fiction' category. we definitely need not a leader who knows nothing. we require a leader who has conviction, who has the guts to change the seemingly unchangeable. we need... to prepare for 2007. Now.

On the side of the big gate in front of our house in Bulacan, there's this nice Meralco post which was once blue and clean. Now look at it... tsk.

This is the first campaign ad ever posted in front of our house during this campaign period. Neato huh. Somehow, this poster tells us, residents of our humble abode, that they'd do everything, even destroy our neatly-kept posts in front of our yard, just to say "Hey! Vote for us! We're regular violators of one of the simplest law made by COMELEC- Post campaign ads only in designated areas!" If they can't follow simple rules, how can we expect them to abide by anything ethical/moral/legal when they assume their positions. I'd say, don't vote for these greedy chimpanzees.

Come to think of it, how come Herrera, once famous as a politician, ended up as one of FPJ's running senator? Goodness! How easy is it nowadays to throw away principles (in Filipino, that's "prinsipyo"- it's heavier in meaning that way, actually) for votes? This is the reason why the party system in the political scene in the Philippines is almost useless. What are they running for anyway?

I mean, hello, Mr. Herrera! Have you ever considered that compared to FPJ, you're even more qualified to be president. (Ah well, he'd not win anyway, so why not run as his senator, and have all the benifits of being in his popular party.) If Herrera really really thinks FPJ, as his presidential bet, should win, that would make him, together with other politicians using FPJ as their bait to victory... lesser than their presidential candidate, right? I'm not accusing 'em of anything here, friends. Just applying Vulcan Logic.

Damn. If these posters cost more than five pesos a piece, sayang lang.
