Shameless Fools

Jejomar Binay, Mar Roxas and Jamby Madrigal, shame on you for pretending to pay your last respects to the late Pres. Cory Aquino when the three of you are actually and blatantly pursuing your respective selfish agenda!  The Filipino people will not be fooled by your revolting conducts.  Shame on you, shame on you, shame on you…

To understand this rant better, click here for Jejomar Binay and Mar Roxas.

For Jamby Madrigal, I’m sharing this blog entry originally posted in Facebook:

Shame on your Jamby Madrigal by Happy Feraren

Now that we’ve remembered, relived and recreated the spirit of ’86 let’s make sure this yellow ribbon doesn’t get tangled up in other people’s political campaigns.

Subtle electioneering IN A FUNERAL?!?! SHAME ON YOU. Do not ride on Cory’s wave to pursue your vested interest. The people who waited in the streets weren’t there to see you! The revolution doesn’t belong to you, phony politician, it belongs to the people. And what makes you think you could get away with such a dirty trick? Cory’s lasting impression of sincerity, humility and honesty is now the benchmark of what leaders are supposed to be. You think people don’t see through you? The respect we have for Cory is not something you acquire with falsity (or through endorsement from Judy Ann Santos) it is earned. How dare you pose as someone offering sympathy to the Aquino family while you think about the votes you’re going to get come election time.

As I waited for the cortege (news networks’ new favourite word) along the South Super Highway, my mom and I bought 2 yellow umbrellas from this street vendor who was also selling nuts. And then as we paid, he pulled out something from his pocket – a yellow beaded bracelet nicely packed in a small clear plastic bag. Upon handing it over to us, he said: “Eto o, bonus para sa inyo.”Of course my mom and I were pleased and were all “awww how sweet.”Until I actually looked at the bracelet and saw a little tag with the name and photo of Jamby Madrigal.

I called out to him and asked, “O bakit may Jamby Madrigal itong bracelet na ito” and when I looked at the vendor for an answer he had already walked away.

Maybe an hour before this incident, I saw her car passing by the growing sea of people. Window open, flashing the L sign and strangely enough, a cameraman in front filming the people. My mom started shouting “Transparencyyyy!” and then I looked at her asking if I could put up my middle finger and my mom looked at me and said I should just shout transparency, accountability or good governance. In other words “BOOOOOOOO!!!!” And then the two of us just started shouting BOO JAMBY!!!

I am utterly disgusted by you, Ms.Madrigal. And to you other filthy politicians, behave yourselves because we are all watching you, even if you’re supposedly Cory’s “favorite” mayor. Genuine democracy is People Power and everything Ninoy and Cory stood for. It also means that now, whenever there’s a phony claiming he or she is there to protect Cory’s legacy, we will be able to speak up and act with the same fearless fervour we had before.

You know sometimes I wish I could march in the government offices with a magical broom that can sweep away all the dirty politicians we have in this country. A giant clean up, but this time not just for the environment but for our government. Haha, imagine if we could really do that? I’m already writing down the names of the people I’d attack first with my magic walis!

So, before you file for candidacy (a bit too late though in this case) think again. Actually, good luck! The people have remembered.”

  1. mga walang delikadeza…mga peste!!!


    desperado lang po kasi kaming mga trapo
    para makakuha ng inyong mga boto
    bracelet bigay ko para kayo’y mauto
    sa 2010 isulat jamby sa presinto

    (palakpakan mga uto uto!)

  3. Didn’t understood the last part :s could you explain better please?

  4. baket may picture niya? di naman kagandahan, nilagay pa. hahahaha

    pero tama ka, they are shameless. nung andun ako, nagtaka talaga ako. baket ganun. in poor taste talaga. di man lang sila gumalang sa patay.

  5. “So, before you file for candidacy (a bit too late though in this case) think again. Actually, good luck! The people have remembered.”

    I think the writer meant that these politicians who have aspirations in 2010 should have thought before they leaped into doing a shameless, disrespectful act during Cory’s funeral because any misstep they do will cost them their election success. But because they had decided on doing those, it might be too late now for them to win since the people will have remembered what they did come May 2010.

    Hope this sheds light on your query. : )

    Just trying to reply for the blog-owner. Hehe
