10 reasons why Filipinos should be grateful to President Ferdinand Marcos

I read this article in Inquirer and everything went back to 70's and 80's when the President was Marcos who served as the longest time after declaring martial Law. I can't tell you about 60's because I was born in the year 1969.

As an ordinary citizen of the Philippines I can tell you that in those years I only witness one president and there was no freedom of speech. The ambiance was full of fear and I saw dead bodies everyday in our city hall. Some of them are victims of human right violations. We were sacked twice by soldiers who were miss inform by envious people. This is the reason why I don't like Martial Law because most of the victims are innocent people. Mongering was strictly implemented by Marcos and if you said something against the government, you will be jailed or better yet you will be dead the next day.

There’s been too much talk about an apology from the Marcoses. Not enough about gratitude to the late dictator and his allies.
That’s probably why Bongbong Marcos wants Filipinos to forget about what happened to us during his father’s reign.
You can’t really blame him — the focus in media and social media has been on the abuses during Marcos’ 21 years in power.

In fact, there are reasons why we should be grateful to the dictator. Here are some of them:

  1. Marcos taught us to disdain and reject bullies
Ferdinand Marcos was not the first, or the last, president to abuse his power. But, certainly, he set a seemingly unbreakable record. The nightmare of his 21 years in power still haunts us today, a powerful, constant reminder of a chapter in our history that must never be repeated. That’s worth something.

  1. Marcos taught us to disdain leaders who flaunt their wealth.
To be fair, Marcos and Imelda did not invent wealth-flaunting. The elites have been doing that for generations well before he came to power. But the Marcoses certainly took the brazen display of extreme affluence, in the face of extreme poverty, to a new low. I mean how can how one justify owning 3,000 pairs of shoes and bragging about it?

  1. Marcos taught us to be suspicious of leaders who acquire wealth.
Presidents who came after Marcos certainly ran into this problem. Yes, Philippine politics is still widely considered as an easy road to easy money, but too much greed is now generally accepted as being dangerous to one’s political career. And we have to give credit to Marcos for this, for making Filipinos extremely suspicious of political leaders who suddenly get rich.

  1. Marcos taught us to disdain those who brazenly cheat in elections.
Now take note: I said “brazenly.” For I know, elections Philippine-style are still dirty and cheating-prone. But still, given our experience with Marcos, there’s a line, especially in national races, that I suspect candidates will not cross for fear of sparking a severe backlash.

  1. Marcos taught us to be wary of leaders who say they want to make the Constitution better (and perhaps do away with that pesky rule about staying in office for only six years).
Funny how, for a people who love dance, we don’t trust politicians who want to do the cha-cha. This could be a problem later one when the country does need to make changes in the basic law of the land. But then again, after what Marcos did, Filipinos are rightfully suspicious of anyone wanting to fool around with laws meant to prevent power-hungry politicians. “One to sawa” dynasty, anyone?

  1. Marcos showed us that there is a big difference between discipline and fear.
“Sa Ikauunlad ng Bayan, Disiplina ang Kailangan.” “For our nation to develop, we need discipline.” That was the regime’s slogan for Marcos’ New Society. It worked for a time, mainly because people knew that, by discipline, the dictator meant, “Shut up and submit, or else.” It got so bad that one U.S. official observed that the Philippines in the ‘70s and ‘80s had turned into a country of “40 million cowards and one SOB.” Well, Filipinos were willing to let that be the case only for so long.

  1. Marcos showed that friendship with powerful world leaders is no guarantee that one could hold on to power indefinitely.
Oh, Marcos and Imelda look so happy and proud in photographs with Ronald and Nancy Reagan. They were friends after all. Reagan even sent his Vice President George H.W. Bush to Manila to praise Marcos’ “adherence to democratic principles.” A few years later, the dictator was gone. The Reagan White House finally realized he was a liability to U.S. interests.

  1. Marcos taught us to be wary of leaders who try to glorify themselves in songs, slogans and gargantuan, if ugly, monuments.
I must confess that I was thrilled when Marcos imposed Martial Law. I was eight years old when it happened, and for a few weeks I didn’t have to go to school and there was nothing but cartoons on TV.
But then, once back in school, my schoolmates and I had to learn these new weird songs about the new order and how everything was great about the regime — and about Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos.
Think North Korea!
Nowadays, epal politicians who like having their names and pictures on billboards and public places can expect to be criticized and attacked. We can thank Marcos and Imelda for this. In many ways, the anti-epal mood is rooted in how Filipinos grew so disgusted with the Marcoses.
What can be more epal than having gigantic bust of yourself constructed along a major highway you named after yourself.

  1. Marcos forced Filipinos to be creative –- in fighting back.
  2. Only in the Philippines could yellow confetti become a symbol of protest. And nuns praying the rosary in front of tanks?
You just won’t find such an act of defiance in other places.
But even before the People Power Revolt, during the darkest days of dictatorship, Filipinos were already coming up with creative ways to defy the regime. Students at UP used to launch lightning rallies, in which they marched from one floor to another yelling slogans and waving banners and then quickly folding the banners away and dispersing before the cops showed up.
Even the artists dared try new things. Take my old boss and drinking buddy, the poet Pete Lacaba, who wrote a seemingly harmless, apolitical poem titled “Prometheus Unbound.” When read vertically, the first letter of every line said, “Marcos, Hitler, Diktador, Tuta” – the famous anti-dictatorship slogan, “Marcos, Hitler, Dictator, Puppet.”

  1. Marcos made us laugh.
One thing became clear during the Marcos years: Even during dark times, Filipinos can still maintain a healthy sense of humor.
How can one not laugh at Marcos and Imelda’s antics?
The first time I met Imelda in person was when the UP Collegian staff interviewed her at the Manila Hotel in 1984. The highlight of the meeting was when Imelda explained her theory of cosmic rays from outer space that she said would protect the country.

I distinctly remember a classic during one of the rallies after Ninoy’s assassination and Marcos’ face often looked swollen as he reportedly battled lupus. The protest poster read: “Mamaga sana ang mukha ng nagpapatay kay Ninoy.” “I hope whoever had Ninoy killed gets a swollen face” (Well, it’s funnier in Tagalog.)

And without Marcos, what would have happened to Willie Nepomuceno, undoubtedly one of the most talented Filipino humorists ever? He was so good with his Marcos impersonation, that during the critical hours of the People Power Revolt, when the dictator appeared on TV to prove he was still in charge, there were those who believed it was a ploy – with the popular comedian in the starring role.

Of course, Willie Nepomuceno’s career faced a crisis when Marcos was kicked out of the country, and later died. But he quickly bounced back, doing other politicos, including former Presidents Fidel Ramos and Joseph Estrada.

Fortunately, like the late tyrant, Willie Nepomuceno did not intend to die.
That’s what Marcos once declared: “I do not intend to die.” His family and supporters apparently understood that to mean he does not want to be buried, too. That’s why they’re keeping him in a refrigerated vault.
In a way, Marcos was right. He’s back. His son and his allies want us to forget what his regime did.
Unfortunately for Bongbong Marcos & Co., there are many of us who don’t want to forget and who say: #NeverAgain.

(This is an updated version of a list six years ago, which clearly is worth revisiting. If you also want to express your gratitude to the late dictator, please visit the NeverAgain page on Facebook.)

Hillary Clinton became millionaire because of Wall Street

Wall Street has made Hillary Clinton a millionaire.

As Clinton tries to talk tough about how she will stand up to America's biggest banks, her Democratic rivals are likely to remind voters just how cozy she's been with Wall Street.
Clinton made $3.15 million in 2013 alone from speaking to firms like Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank and UBS, according to the list her campaign released of her speaking fees.
Hillary Clinton
"Her closeness with big banks on Wall Street is sincere, it's heart-felt, long-established and well known," former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley has said on the campaign trail.
While Clinton has given paid speeches to many groups, Wall Street banks and investment houses made up a third of her speech income.
She even made more money speaking to UBS and Goldman Sachs than her husband Bill did. Goldman Sachs in New York paid Bill $200,000 for a speech in June 2013 and Hillary $225,000 for a speech in October of that year.
Clinton's Wall Street ties likely to be debate issue
"If the other candidates want to make this an issue, they've got plenty of material," says Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics.
Sabato predicts O'Malley or Jim Webb are more likely to go negative on Clinton in the CNN debate Tuesday, but even Bernie Sanders may be able to take a sideswipe when it comes to Wall Street.
Sanders has been outspoken that the big banks are still "too big to fail" and should be broken up.
Clinton's anti-Wall Street policies stop far short of that, with proposals to tax short-term trading and impose a "risk fee" on big banks with assets over $50 billion.
Wall Street's reaction to her plan to regulation big banks was mostly a sigh of relief.
"We continue to believe Clinton would be one of the better candidates for financial firms," one analyst wrote.
Wall Street has been a top supporter of Clinton's career
As a former senator from New York, it is not surprising that Hillary Clinton would have a close connection to the financial world. But Wall Street continues to be a big contributor to her political career.
In her 2008 run for president, JPMorgan (JPM)Goldman Sachs (GS)Citigroup (C)and Morgan Stanley (MS)employees were among her top campaign contributors, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Tabulating campaign contributions for her entire senate political career shows that four of the top five her contributors are Wall Street banks (Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley).
In contrast, Sander's career campaign contribution list is almost entirely made up of union groups.
Republicans likely to have even more Wall Street ties
Clinton has tried to re-cast herself in this campaign. She shunned Manhattan for her campaign headquarters, opting to locate in hip Brooklyn.
She also did not list out where her speaking fees came from on her 2014 tax return, although she made about the same overall for speeches -- around $10 million -- as she did in 2013.
Still, her ties to big banks could be a problem in the Democratic primary, making it more difficult for her to appeal to the far left of her party. But if she becomes the Democratic candidate, her banking connections probably won't be as big of a deal on Election Day.
"The GOP candidate is likely to have even more time with, and donations from, Wall Street," says Sabato.

Miriam will run for President in 2016

Miriam ran for president in 1992 and lost to Fidel Ramos with narrow margin.

But many believed that Ramos cheated her because she was unbeatable that year and number one in many survey.

She won in voting but lost in counting as most of the voters said.

It only cost a one night electric power black out and her leading score was surpassed by Ramos votes.

During that time lots of character assassination were thrown at her like she was branded as lunatic.

Mud slinging is very popular during election plus vote buying.

Ramos was endorsed by the mother of current president Pnoy Aquino.

 Will she win this time?

Will destiny favor her as she should have won in 1992?

Only time will tell.

As for me she is the most qualified to run for president compared to Binay who is surrounded by many bad accusation like plunder and etc.

Grace Poe who is un-experience and only banking to the famous name of her adopted father the late Fernando Poe Jr.

 Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago on Tuesday said she will run for president in the 2016 elections. 

Asked by reporters if she will file her certificate of candidacy for the presidency this week, Santiago answered a simple “yes.”

 She added that her running mate is someone who has already declared his or her candidacy.

 Santiago said the Philippines will be a “much better country” if she will become president in the “near future.”

 “If I become president some time in the very near future, this country will be much better than it was before.

Today, this country suffers from the malaise of plunder.

Plunder is when you look at a person and the person looks at you and you feel like eating each other up.

It’s like cancer,” said Santiago, who is currently on medical leave at the Senate for battling Stage 4 lung cancer.

 “The one thing bad about cancer is it tends to eat up its neighbor,” she added.

Santiago said she will try “to make this country better” through her faith and with the help of fellow Filipinos.

“So we will try to make this country better simply by trusting in the Lord, trusting in yourself—trusting that you yourself may lead in God’s great heaven where we know He loves,” the senator added.

 Santiago made the statement during the meet-and-greet and book signing event for “Stupid is Forevermore,” the sequel to her best-selling collection of witty pick-up lines, jokes and anecdotes “Stupid is Forever.”

 In a Facebook post last week, Santiago hinted through a quote graphics that she may vie for the presidency in next year’s polls:“I am not going to be coy.

Society leaders have have urged me to seek the presidency. I can rise to the occasion.”

 She also uploaded in her Facebook account a video clip of her speech during her 1992 presidential run, where she lost to former president Fidel V. Ramos in a hotly contested race.

Rodrigo Duterte will not run for president

DAVAO CITY, Philippines (UPDATED) – Rodrigo Duterte says he will not run for president in the 2016 elections. Ending weeks of speculation, he announced this during a press conference in Davao City on Monday afternoon, October 12.

This is the second press conference he has called to confirm he is not seeking the presidency.
It comes weeks after telling supporters that he would do "soul-searching" in order to come up with a final decision on his 2016 plans.

 He also expressed his desire to bow out of public life – but only if his daughter Sara will agree to run for mayor of Davao City again.

“The country does not need me. I find no need for it (the presidency),” Duterte said tersely inside a jampacked room at the Grand Men Seng Hotel.

 People came to the press conference – called only Monday morning – expecting him to actually announce his presidential bid.

“I am sorry to disappoint those who spent much and worked hard and long in support of me as I went around the country espousing the benefits and advantages of federalism,” the teary-eyed Davao City Mayor began reading his statement.

 Two prepared statements According to former North Cotabato Governor Manny Piñol, Duterte was given two prepared statements.

The one that he didn't read, still in Piñol's hand would have been an 11-page acceptance speech had he decided to run. (READ:Rodrigo Duterte: 'I am in a quandary').

 Duterte said instead of seeking a national position, he would end his political career as a public servant of his hometown.

"Time and again, those who believed in me and in the cause that I advocated and continue to advocate, advised me to go for the country’s presidency because that is the destiny that awaits me.

But I believe that my destiny is to end years and years of public life in the service of Davao City and every Dabawenyo.

" Duterte said the political plans of his daughter, Sara, would determine his as well.

If Sara decides not to run for Davao City mayor, he might run for the post again.

 "Thus, if Inday Sara agrees to run for Mayor, I will retire at the end of my term in 2016.

If she does not, the option to be Mayor again is on the table," he said.

 He said he will fade into the night and find “comfort in the thought that this is indeed a beautiful day to end a wild dream.

'You owe them nothing' Piñol believed that the thought of Sara not running for mayor of Davao City weighed on Duterte’s decision.

Sara made herself scarce from the public and did not answer calls and text messages from her father.

She was the one most strongly opposed to her Duterte's presidential bid.

 Piñol said Duterte was already set to run for president last week, as many of the president’s advisers said in private.

 But the absence of trusted friend and longtime adviser Leoncio Evasco, mayor of Maribojoc town in Bohol, was already an ominous sign Duterte was going to disappoint the local media.

Evasco left for Bohol Monday morning before the press conference.

Before reading his statement, Duterte urged the local press to listen intently to what he was going to say and added that the letter sent to him by Sara had bearing on his decision.

Sara, he said, did not want him to run for president.

“You owe them nothing,” he quoted the last paragraph of Sara's letter to him.

 The maverick city mayor said he had been very "local" and had repeatedly declined any appointive post in national government.

He had refused offers from at least 3 presidents in the past for him to run for senator.

“There was no ambition for me to aspire for the presidency….

I guess it is fate that wills our long journey together should end this way,” Duterte said in his statement that stunned many local members of the press who were expecting he will run as many were expecting him to announce.

Former Senator Joker Arroyo is dead

“For the younger generation, who may not be aware of Senator Joker’s contribution to nation building, they should know that he fought for the restoration of democracy in the Philippines, he fought in the courts and in the streets for the restoration of our civil and political rights which we enjoy today,” Senator Angara said.

“Farewell to one of the best and finest trial lawyers that we have ever met,” Angara added.

Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., son of the late dictator and namesake Ferdinand Marcos Jr., expressed shock when told of Arroyo’s death.

“He did what?” the senator asked in an interview in Quezon City.

“Oh no. Is that true? That’s terrible news, oh that’s terrible,” he added.

But in another statement also issued later, Marcos said he was “deeply saddened by the tragic news of Joker Arroyo’s passing.”
Joker Arroyo

These are what the colleagues said about him but many people said that he started good but finished bad as he connived with Binay who has lots of plunder and corruption issues. 

He also sided with Former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo though he is not blood related and GMA at the same time has many plunder and corruption issues too. 

He also voted Supreme Court Chief Justice Corona not guilty. 

He was with Miriam Santiago and Bobong Marcos, the son of the former president marcos.

"I value greatly my time spent with him in the Senate. Considering where we came from, we often found ourselves in agreement over political questions. I think because of this, I dare say that we eventually became friends. My prayers and thoughts are with his family as they suffer through this great loss,” he said.

All I can say that there is no permanent enemy and friend in politics. Hello?

Arroyo was a three-term congressman of the 1st District of Makati from 1992 to 1998 before he became senator from 2001 to 2013.

“While in Congress, he remained an independent throughout his term, he never traveled abroad on government money and was known to have a perfect attendance record for nine years from the time he was elected up to the end of his term, according to his biography posted at the official website of the Senate.

“As lead prosecutor during the impeachment trial of President Joseph Estrada, he was remarkable,” it further said.

A human rights lawyer and freedom fighter, Arroyo was among those who questioned before the Supreme Court the ratification of the Marcos-dictated 1973 Constitution; Amendment 6 that empowered President Marcos to exercise law making powers alongside the Batasang Pambansa; the power of military tribunals to try civilians.

He also helped defend political detainees like Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Eugenio Lopez Jr., Serge Osmeña III, Jose Ma. Sison, Jovito Salonga, Nene Pimentel, Eva Kalaw, Renato Tañada, Eduardo Olaguer and many others.

“As a freedom fighter, Senator Arroyo has had his share of physical and mental tortures having been incarcerated in a military stockade, gassed, injured and hospitalized during protest rallies,” according to his biography posted at the official website of the Senate.
During the snap elections in 1986, Arroyo served as counsel of then-presidential candidate Corazon Aquino.

After EDSA I, the late senator held various post in government first as executive secretary in the Aquino cabinet from 1986 to 1992, then as chair of the Philippine National Bank and as executive director for the Philippines in the Asian Development Bank from 1986 to 1990.

I just could not understand why some of the best and good politicians became bad at later years like Saguisag and others. They tainted their names by siding the thieves in our country. Maybe because they have Alzheimer's disease. Or they are really bad pretending to be good at the start and showed their true colors later on?

No matter how many good things you have contributed, once you made a mistakes you are branded as bad. Or maybe we are the one who are wrong and they are right. Time will tell.

He live up to his name "Joker".

Fiorina leads Clinton by double digits in Iowa

Another survey discovers GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina ahead of Democratic leading candidate Hillary Clinton by 14 percent in the early-voting State of Iowa.

 The Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist survey discovered Fiorina up 52-38, with Clinton trailing a few GOP rivals in Iowa and New Hampshire in speculative straight on match-ups.

 The biggest Iowa hole is with Fiorina, however previous Secretary of State Clinton additionally trails Jeb Bush by 10 percent and Donald Trump by 7% there in the survey.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Clinton's top adversary for the Democratic race, fairs better.

Sanders trails Bush and Fiorina by only 2 and 3 percent individually, and leads Trump by 5 percent. 

In New Hampshire, where Clinton declared her weapon control proposition Monday, Sanders drives Fiorina by 2%, bests Trump by 10 percent and ties with Bush, while Clinton trails Fiorina by 8 percent, Bush by 7 percent and leads Trump by 3 percent.

 A comparative NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey discharged a week ago discovered Vice President Joe Biden, who is considering entering the Democratic race, fairing preferred broadly over Clinton in match-ups with a few Republican presidential applicants.

 Trump and Clinton keep on driving their individual gatherings in the two early-voting states after the second GOP level headed discussion a month ago and in front of the first Democratic open deliberation one week from now.

 Trump's lead in Iowa, however, has dropped. He has 24 percent backing, trailed by Ben Carson at 19 percent, Fiorina at 8 percent and Bush at 7 percent among 491 GOP voters, with a 4.7 percent safety buffer.

 Trump drives Fiorina by 5 percent in New Hampshire, 21 to 16 percent, trailed by Bush at 11 percent and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Carson tied at 10 % each.

 On the Democratic side, an overview of 348 Democratic voters, with a 5.3 percent of margin error, discovers Clinton driving in Iowa (47 percent), trailed by Sanders (36 percent) and previous Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (4 percent).

Sanders has a 9 percent lead in New Hampshire. The studies of 1,061 enlisted voters in Iowa and 1,044 in New Hampshire were directed Sept. 23 to Sept. 30 with a wiggle room of 3 percent each.
