On APO's hakbang paurong against cha-cha

To the members of the Alpha Phi Omega (APO) who staged their annual oblation Run at the University of the Philippines Diliman on Friday, Feb. 16th, 2024. This year's theme is "Cha-cha: Hakbang Paurong."

You won't see this ideocracy in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, and even Vietnam. You will never see this stupid and idiotic act in countries where their systems are in Federal-Parliamentary and their economy is also open for foreign investors. It's only in the worst university in ASEAN which the education system in the Philippines is lagging behind, the University of the Philippines. You can only see this in the Philippines, the only country in the world where there are a lot of restrictions in its lousy constitution, which some of the framers protect oligarch and elites in the Philippines, making majority of Filipinos poor.

Instead of presenting alternative solutions to economic charter change, they go out in public to their naked bodies which carry no value or message at all.

We need to open our country to foreign investments to several sectors and several industries. Allowing these investors will generate job opportunities for all Filipinos. Instead of going to work abroad, it is much better to bring in investments so Filipnios will no longer be separated with their family members, and friends. It will also generate local tax revenue which will be used to fund our education. So that UP students have something in their brains.

Singaporeans trashtalk online Filipino gamers

"Your mother is my maid, lah." said Singaporeans as they trashtalk online Filipino gamers. Being a domestic helper is a noble profession, but we cannot keep our country's reputation this way. We must raise the morale of our people by fixing our country, the first step of which is constitutional reforms.

We need to open our country to 100% equity shares for foregin investors to do business here in the country. Doing so, will provide job opportunities to our contrymen to work here, be here with their family members and relatives. Let's put an end on exporting Filipinos to work abroad, instead, let foreigners to do business here and have our kababayans work for decent jobs here.

Let's support the economic constitutional reform. It has been 37 years since 1987 that our country is lagging behind Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam.

EDSA is officially dead in the Philippines

Numerous individuals and organizations, including ex-Supreme Court justices Antonio Carpio and Adolfo Azcuna, are advocating for an end to discussions about amendments to the Constitution. However, it is argued that EDSA has lost its relevance over time since the rushed ratification of the 1987 Philippine constitution was carried out without proper notification of citizens. As a result of this move which left our country severely underdeveloped; rather than embodying hope and positive change as intended by EDSA's spirit initially - today we see nothing but inconvenience caused by traffic congestion because infrastructure hasn't kept pace with population growth in urban areas making it ineffective. Its deterioration from lackadaisical maintenance renders it gradually becoming obsolete until eventually ceasing existence altogether.

After the Philippine government issued a decree announcing holidays for 2024, it became apparent that the EDSA People Power Revolution was not included. A vast majority of Filipinos have come to accept that this historic event has lost its significance since Benigno Simeon Aquino's presidency.

In case you haven't come to terms with reality yet, let me kindly remind you that the EDSA rhetoric has officially been put to rest by the majority of Filipino citizens who voted in the recent 2022 elections. As a result, it's crucial that we move on from a constitution based on this now defunct ideology. The previous framework failed in its superficial attempt at safeguarding Philippine interests and was rather motivated by an ulterior goal of prohibiting power for the Marcoses. It is time for those involved with yellow, pink, and red movements reevaluate their approaches as they search for alternative tactics aimed at deceiving people again.

The primary recollection of EDSA for many Filipinos is its infamous reputation as the world's most congested road, with little else standing out in their minds.
