Out Of The Mouth Of Babes

Actually This Can't Be Too Much Of A Downgrade
Actually This Can’t Be Too Much Of A Downgrade

 

Oh, mama
That’s the life for me
When I’m grown
That’s what I’m want to be

“ Jolly Coppers On Parade” by Randy Newman

 

Bimby Yap (the artist formerly known as Baby James) wants to be president one day. I assume he wants to be like his Tito. Perpetually vilify his predecessor, no cabinet meetings, no need to articulate issues. Just point to deceased family members. Given the practical example his tito gives him, it obviously does not take any skill or perseverance to be president. Maybe Baby James rightfully feels he has some divine right to the presidency. If he were to assume office tomorrow, I doubt he could do much worse than his uncle.

 

That this speaks to self-entitlement is an obvious sentiment. What I find fascinating is why is this news? Take away my opinion that there is no more potent attention seeking warhead on this planet than his mother, why is this news? ABS-CBN is there to take advantage of their grip on the pinoy consciousness to put in politicians that will be favorable to their own circumstance. They are there to define the status quo. They present to me what they say is royalty yet I personally believe the same person to be barely a court jester. ABS-CBN is not there to educate you. They are not there to provide you quality. They are not there for objectivity. They are not there to do what is best for the country. They are there to kiss the collective behinds of the Aquinos because that is what they do.

 

Face it, you and I were Bimby’s age once. Playtime is just that. In the old days playtime was imagination. We had toy soldiers who were stuck in one pose and somehow we made it work. We played marbles. We pretended we were cowboys, indians , cops , robbers, astronauts and race care drivers. We had paper bullet fights. No eyes lost thankfully. We made friends, got pikon , made up then fought again. Playtime was an exercise for our creativity and a chance to learn social skills. Why the heck is Bimby’s playtime news?

Play is where we work things out. See what we like, see what we don’t like. Got to see which boys played with Barbies. Bless my lolo. He could never understand why his grandson was playing with dolls even if the doll was named G.I. Joe. Ken Dryden in his book Home Game talks about play being about self discovery. Play is about experiencing the world.

 

Yet what is Baby James experience of the world so far? Mommy accusing daddy of heinous acts via the media.  His perfectly normal pretend session becomes news. Both his mom and his mom’s employer turning playtime into something they feel the whole nation should see. Are they trying to raise a well-adjusted child? No, they are doing what they are doing for self-interest.

I have said this many times before. If KSP is the root of all evil, what does that make Kris Aquino? I am open to suggestions. Anybody who reads GRP regularly knows what an oxymoron is,  like jumbo shrimp, army intelligence, living dead.  Can I suggest one oxymoron that totally explains the collective consciousness of the Filipino as symbolized by this Baby James non-news news story?

ABS-CBN NEWS.

It is non news in itself, but the fact that it makes the news is, as you point out, a symptom of a greater malaise, in the cojuangco-aquino self serving media, the lack of national talent ( or the desire not to develop it), the promotion of bad role-models, the love of scandal/gossip/trivia, the lemming mentality of filipinos etc. My issue is the despicable way that kris aquino is airbrushing the father out of the picture – legally and psychologically – so that she has control over every aspect of bimby’s future media and political career. God forbid the boy… Read more »

Interesting study. The symptoms shown on the study reflects on what Kris is doing on James and Bimby.

i have encountered it before with parents in UK. the difference is that the courts in the UK are well aware of the games parents/lawyers play, and cannot be bribed so put the childs interest uppermost. 1. A mother who unjustifiably punishes her divorcing or divorced husband by: 1. Attempting to alienate their mutual child(ren) from the father 2. Involving others in malicious actions against the father 3. Engaging in excessive litigation 2. The mother specifically attempts to deny her child(ren): 1. Regular uninterrupted visitation with the father 2. Uninhibited telephone access to the father 3. paternal participation in the… Read more »

Its a well funded and carefully choreographed campaign by kris aquino
Regrettably james yap is not the sharpest guy or strongest character – which is why he was most probably chosen in the first place.
I hope his lawyer is more on the ball.

Gogs, On 09 June 2013, a few days before ABS-CBN’s story, TV5’s InterAksyon.com reported the opposition of party-list Akap Bata to the approval of House Bill 6052 by Congress to introduce amendments to Republic Act 9344 or the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act. http://interaksyon.com/article/63647/no-to-lowering-age-of-discernment-criminal-liability—akap-bata The amendments seek to lower the age of discernment and criminal liability. “The House-approved version puts the age of discernment at above 12 but under 15 years of age and the age of criminal liability at above 15 but under 18. Also, if the offense charged is murder, parricide, homicide, kidnapping, rape, robbery, drug trafficking, or… Read more »

After edsa 2 happened,I began to distance myself from watching shows from abscbn since I already noticed that their shows were being too dumbed down to the point that they have to humiliate their contestants just so that they can give them prizes. What ultimately turned me off completely is that they tend to cherry pick their stories and they tend to leave out important information on their news program. I soon made the jump to GMA 7 and I haven’t looked back ever since. Well, I hope that the people come to their senses soon since we obviously can’t… Read more »

Even the men and women who powered your investment in Social Media, the Gurus,
have, reluctantly, accepted this reality.
