Case Comment

I don’t know if one can download from YouTube video clips of the impeachment trial. If it is possible, a lot of people must be feasting upon what seems the incompetence of the prosecutors. Impeachment is a numbers game because it is a political exercise. However, I suspect that the prosecution and its lack of skills in handling such case will make it difficult for the judges to vote for them.

Tech Deals

An ad about laptops sale reminds me of Ricky Carandang, a well respected journalist appointed as a communications or press secretary of P-Noy. The guy got major flack for buying a few pieces of laptops that a congresswoman deemed very scandalous. Geesh! She should have made a fuzz with her congresswoman seatmate who among others is involved in massive illegal profiteering in at least two telecom deals valued at billions of pesos.

Anyway, life goes on for both after a short house hearing.

Wrong! .. from the beginning

Chief Justice Renato Corona is desperate to hang on to his corona (crown). Through his people at the courts, he is calling for judicial independence and a rejection of the President's alleged intrusion in the judiciary. 

To begin with, Corona already knew that midnight appointments are very wrong and unconstitutional. Two Presidents ago, Fidel Ramos tried to appoint him during the election ban and the Supreme Court and the Judicial Bar Council rejected it. During the Gloria Arroyo's reign, they did it again and this time, with more force, they were able to get through. 

Macula, ab initio.. Wrong from the beginning!

That is what defines the Corona court.

People were against Corona's appointment for good reason. They knew that he was appointed there to prevent any legal action against Gloria Arroyo.

Corona confirmed the people's fears when instead of proclaiming that his court will be fair to everyone, he declared that he will be independent (of Malacanang).

His declaration was tantamount to saying that he will be against Malacanang.

He deserves this impeachment.

The judicial system is not being destroyed by Noynoy Aquino.

It was Gloria Arroyo and Corona who started its decline.

Corona's Corona

I've wanted to write a long position paper on this issue but I just don't have the time. Besides, why will I waste so much time in this issue. The poor people can profit much better if I do my work well and help the economy provide more employment. Therefore, I will write my position on installment, in short posts.

Free Round Trip Ticket

At the airport, I passed by an old gentleman who got a free round trip ticket because the airline company broke his carry bag. Despite the airline’s act to appease him, the old man was still irritated stating that no free ticket can compensate for the travel inconvenience because he now has to carry around a broken bag. I was tempted to but in and tell him to buy a good samsonite briefcase next time but I kept my peace. There’s no use to rub in his nose the fact that he is carrying an inferior brand.
