KAHIHIYAN imbes sana’y karangalan para sa bansa at mamamayan ang idaraos na 2019 Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) mula Nov. 30 hanggang Dec. 11.
Pihadong nakarating na sa kaalaman ng mga bansang lalahok sa 30th SEAG ang gagamiting cauldron na nabansagang kaldero pero korteng banyera.
Ang banyera na ipinagawa ni House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano na hindi naman ginto ay pinagkagastahan ng P55-M mula sa P11-B pondo na inutang lang pala sa pribadong Malaysian company.
Kesyo ang maluhong cauldron na obra ng National Artist na si Architect Francisco “Bobby” Mañosa ang simbolo ng SEAG, at ayon kay Cayetano ay tribute o parangal sa mga atletang Filipino.
Kinasangkapan ni Cayetano ang ating mga atleta na wala naman kinalaman sa mga nabulgar na iregularidad ng Philippine Southeast Asian Games Committee (Phisgoc), isang pribadong Foundation na siya rin ang tagapangulo.
Para kay Cayetano pala, parangal ang maanomalyang cauldron sa mga patay-gutom na atletang Filipino na ang pagsasanay ay hindi nasusuportahan ng gobyerno.
Aba’y, mas importante pa pala kay Cayetano ang maanomalyang P50-M cauldron habang ang ating mga atleta ay hindi nag-aalmusal?
“ISKO, A GOOD LEADER”
GARRY PONCE (Dallas, Texas) – “I’m an avid listener to your Lapid Fire show and I find you fair in your commentaries, which is the right recipe for good journalists like you. Manila boy po ako. Born and raised sa Manila hanggang pumunta na kami rito sa U.S. noong year 2000. Sa mga nangyayari ngayon sa mahal kong Maynila, nakatutuwa ang pagbabago. I believe everything you were saying about Erap was just correct. Lintek na tao ‘yan, magnanakaw ‘yang hayop na ‘yan! Anyway, Isko is a good leader and he’s a breath of fresh air. I believe in Isko and he’ll do justice with Manila. Maraming salamat sa ‘yo, mabuhay ang show n’yo!”
“CAYETANO, A LOST CAUSE”
LUCIANO ADAN (New York, USA) – “Politics is the Cayetanos means of livelihood as it is their bread and butter. The Cayetanos may be lawyers but it is not the profession but only a means to be politicians here they must have amassed wealth to have millions to be able to donate to Duterte campaign funds. Alan Cayetano was published to have donated 60 million to Duterte election campaign funds. I am truly puzzled how Cayetano was able to donate that huge 60 million when has no other source of income, except to be a politician Senator, while his wife was Taguig Mayor involved in several city anomalies during her terms. The siblings Alan and Pia Cayetno did not practice law as source of income and has no known business. So why on Earth can they support their passion in politics? They also have done nothing tangible and worthwhile as Senators, except to warm up their chairs. Alan and Pia even just switch their position in Congress – Senator and Congressperson – as if just changing their clothes. Why and how can they enjoy the trust and confidence of the people except to fool and pull the legs of the voters. Alan is even daring to run as VP even if he has no achievements as public official. He is a lost cause, he is undeserving. Now as a jealous VP, Alan Cayetano not contented to be a House Speaker, he dips his sour finger on the issue of VP Robredo appointment and handling of the anti-drug czar position. Cayetano as Congressman has no business meddling and commenting on Robredo’s appointment as Drug Czar, since it is an executive branch which he must not interfere. He can just focus on legislative matters but suspiciously meddles in Robredo affair in order for Cayetano to hide the pork barrel allotment he endorsed for every Congressman (500 million each), as a form of grease to support Cayetano’s hold on the Speakership to avoid the Term Sharing with Velasco. Hungy for higher office and slick as his father Renato Cayetano, the young and siblings Cayetanos have been licking the assess of whomsoever in power, like the Arroyo, Aquino and now Duterte. His father licked the ass of Erap that made him millions in stock transaction tipped to him by Erap when Erap reinvested the funds of SSS and GSIS to another stock broker. Now the siblings Cayetanos are riding and sucking the coattail of Duterte to continue his hold on the House Speakership. Cayetano critizes VP Robredo for revisiting ‘tokhang’ as it connotes human rights infringement. Cayetano derided that Robredo is all ‘talk lang’ and press releases for what she intends to do in the anti-drug war effort. Cayetano is the official as just all talk and appear as a ‘beke/bakla’.
