Pilipinas Kong Mahal

Jun 3, 2009

While reading the news and the blog reactions to the yet another nauseating antics of those people who dare to call themselves Representatives (what they represent, we can only guess) the song Pilipinas Kong Mahal came to mind and I share with you the lyrics here:
Ang bayan ko'y tanging ikaw
Pilipinas Kong Mahal
Ang puso ko at buhay man
Sa iyo'y ibibigay

Tungkulin ko'y gagampanan
Na lagi kang paglingkuran
Ang laya mo'y babantayan
Pilipinas kong Hirang...
Earth was fuming mad in her blog, with good cause, at this yet another blatant attempt to amend our constitution. I say, there is nothing wrong with our constitution. Its the people we elect, (or not elect, but are still in position anyway) that is wrong in this country. The timing is very suspect and the pledge to not extend the terms of offices of these officials is so laughable, its downright funny.

Who would stop these people from backing away from this pledge? Well us, actually and that brings me back to the song above. I have never participated in any rally for any cause whatsoever. I was never in EDSA during our People Power movements, but maybe this time, should it look like (and it does look and feel like it, doesn't it) as if they will trample once more on our rights, then I will be there.

If you want to read the full text of the House Resolution 1109, read it here and look closely at the complete list of those honorable representatives who endorsed this proposal to amend or revise the constitution.

    as of to date, this is simply a wrong priority. and what the majority in the house of representatives did the other day is a big mockery for the country. nawala nang lubusan ang dangal ng mababang kapulungan ng PIlipinas. *sigh*
