Remember 11/23/09

More than a hundred journalists have already been killed since Marcos was ousted in 1986. More than half of them –74 to be exact– were executed since 2001, when Arroyo and the military (with the “covert” support of the US government, of course) stole the presidency.

This massacre will never weaken the media. Especially the new mediathe bloggers.

This senseless violence has only strengthened our resolve to uphold the truth no matter what. We shall all continue the mission of The 30 Media Martyrs of Maguindanáo, whether in print or the airwaves or via the net.

So to all you demons in coat and tie (or in terno during SONAs), wallowing in power and bloody wealth inside your respective administrative buildings — BRING IT ON!

There is no way you can stop the Fourth Estate. And you can bet your ugly spouses and goblin-looking children with that.

Man, even his putong is branded: Lacoste!

    I am not saying the diminutive dimwit’s name should be submitted to the Vatican for sainthood. But what would you have had in replacement for Arroyo? Fernando Poe? C’mon, that’s the stupidest vote Filipinos have done. Think of what De Castro has failed to do. And to think he went to UE for college. Poe? Poe-get the future of our nation.

    Covert? Are you kidding me? You give the US too much credit. You watch too many movies.

    Please answer me with common sense, logic, rationality. Don’t bring me fallacies and emotions.

    • I respect your opinion about Gloria and FPJ. As they always say, we’re all entitled to our own.

      Covert? Am I kidding you? Of course not. And yes, I do watch many movies. The last movie I saw was Erap’s comeback flick. It was hilarious!

      And why should I answer you with common sense, logic, and rationality? Did you even ask me a question? LOL

      Don’t worry, Boomer. I will never bring you fallacies nor emotions. Not worth my time, y’know.

      Regards.
