Hail King Benigno S. Aquino II, Ruler of the Yellow Realm

I’ve been waiting for hundreds of thousands if not millions of people to start wearing yellow shirts and ribbons since the day an article stared floating around the internets saying King Benigno S. Aquino The Second called on his worshippers to don their kingdom’s color to show their support for his stand against the Supreme Court’s ruling against DAP.

After days of waiting, all I found was Spokesman Sonny Coloma telling people not to take his King’s word too seriously. Heck, I even think Coloma said King Noynoy was just joking.

ampatuan supports pnoyBut I wasn’t really too disappointed because, even if this one particular gesture of support seems a little dated, I think it’s still a good one. The picture on the right is Ampatuan swearing his oath to protect and defend a fellow warlord, the Yellow King of Tarlac.

And apparently, it’s also prime time for all of King Noynoy’s sycophants (alternatively spelled psycho-phants and suckophants) and really, they’ve got to start working double time to earn their keep.

Not that I have any proof at all that the likes of Jim Paredes, Cynthia Patag, and others were paid with the King’s gold to regurgitate the legal brilliance of Raissa Robles who single handedly demolished the unanimous decision rendered by 13 Supreme Court Justices against the constitutionality of DAP.

Those justices must be hanging their heads in shame for, in the words of Raissa Robles, having ERRED.

And just like that, old Jim Paredes comes chiming in:

It took a blank, clear, non-expert mind to trump the certified experts who designed the Emperor’s new clothes. Go Raissa Robles

Jim’s opinion of Raissa’s legal brilliance makes me think… All that hype about marijuana not doing serious damage to people’s brains is probably untrue and the long term effects actually become more pronounced after one hits a certain age.

Going back to Coloma’s “It’s A Joke” pronouncement on behalf of his Majesty Noynoy, here are a couple more knee slappers that people have had to contend with over the past few years…

Remember the time when King Noynoy was confronted by a man who told him that he was nearly killed by people trying to rob him in the pandemonium that erupted in the aftermath of Yolanda?

you did not die right

Better yet, remember the time when Pnoy oversaw the operations of the Quirino Grandstand hostage taking?

Oh well…

Like I said in so many Facebook posts, King Noynoy has been a joke since day one. It doesn’t help at all that his minions are too busy sucking up to him instead of compelling him to do the right things right.

    1. Again, what does a legal opinion by Thomas Jefferson, two hundred years ago, have to do with a constitutional issue in the Philippines, a nation independent of the United States? A nation with its own judiciary that does not come under the jurisdiction of the US Supreme Court or the US Federal Justice System? What is the point of your bloviating?

      1. never too late to read your jurisprudence. scorp when confronted with constitutional questions love to litter their decisions with American jurisprudence, after all, RP legal system was patterned after the U.S. tripartite form of government. Marbury v. Madison is one of those U.S. rulings which finds its gems in various decisions of the SCORP on constitutional issues. U should read RP jurisprudence — and see the liaison of Philippine law and U.S. Laws. They are like lovers in the likes of Denice and Cedric. 🙂

        1. Jurisprudence aside, the only thing you have insinuated is that justices of the Supreme Court of the Philippines model their opinions on decisions made in the US Federal Court system when dealing with similar issues. How do you imagine this will affect the decision in the Philippines? Are you now saying that we will we be bound by US law? Ludicrous. Regardless of how Supreme Court justices write their opinions, it is still a system independent of the US. Unless you can demonstrate that the process is inherently detrimental to our system of justice, there shouldn’t be any question as to the validity of their rulings.

    2. Whatever the merits you might see in an elected judiciary, the fact is that the accepted practice of both the United States and the Philippines is for justices of the Supreme Court to be appointed. This has been the status quo for the past two hundred years. And as our own experience (as well as that of the United States) has shown, officials elected to public office are NOT necessarily any better than appointed functionaries at delivering better service or performing their duties in a competent manner.

      1. but atleast you get another chance to pick another president, but you cannot simply boot out a jurist without too much political bloodletting. 🙂

        1. You still failed to demonstrate why elected officials will be more effective. The prospect of hoping an officeholder will not be too destructive during his or her time in office isn’t good enough. Either way, the damage (sometimes irrevocably) will still done. Whether it be a lifetime appointment or a six year term. Again, both the Filipino experience and recent American history are replete with examples of horrendous decisions left to the electorate we wish could be taken back.

        1. Oh, I don’t really let it get to me, Amir 😉 Just trying to make sure we don’t end up voting in jurists because of their talent for belting out ‘My Way’ in a karaoke bar or because their life story was optioned by ABS-CBN for a movie. Kind of like to think legal acumen has something to do with being a Supreme Court justice.

        2. Oh I couldn’t agree with you more on the part about legal acumen.

          But of course, the current system, where the President appoints the justices, is not safe from the abuse of nepotism; the current sitting President has demonstrated so fat that he merely continued such a tradition. (Oh ayan ha, for the Gloria bashers out there, I didn’t exempt your favorite target)

          As you pointed out, selecting justices by direct popular vote ain’t gonna work.

          Makes you wonder if there’s a third system out there of selecting justices that is less prone to abuse than these two that have come to be discussed.

        3. To date, even the United States, whose system of government our own is based on, has not definitively settled the Election vs. Appointment debate. But there is a refinement we can make to the Philippine system that is already practiced in the US. In states where judges are appointed through ‘merit selection,’ the electorate periodically vote on whether to retain them. Unlike a competitive election, it is not a completely democratic procedure. However, it does instill accountability and forces them to work harder; it also tends to reduce the influence of special interests. Still not perfect, but a lot better than a court system where cases move at a glacial pace.

  1. He has been a joke since day 1. Noynoy’s pre president life is typical trapo. Not good enough to compete in the private sector yet people believed he can lead a nation. No history of leadership or problem solving. Hence the need for super trolls unleashed for damage control from that verbal diarrhea a week ago. Trolls are what you need and what you use when you lack rational supporters.

    1. The entire mess should pinpoint the exact nature of the problems that plague the country.That being the fact that the politicans steal everything that could benefit their fellow countrymen.The politicians leave their fellow countrymen in dire circumstances all while trying to prove to who ever will look or listen that they are international jet setters of the first order. BUT what they really are is criminal scumbags of the lowest order.

  2. I think getrealphilippines should somehow lighten their take on Ngoyngoy issues. The yellow president might snap it out reading your articles. I’m getting worried that one night, he’ll just get up from his bed and go running in streets wearing nothing but undies while holding two shotguns and screaming “Viva Dilaw!”

    I’m quite surprised that many people today can relate BS with Incubus’ megalomaniac song. Have a friend that’s been playing it ever since Homer Simpson is campaigning. Guess my buddy just predicted the Philippines’ national anthem for the yellow army.

      1. His moronic malacañang morons(especially ones that deny that they’re under malacañangs payroll) certainly can’t read let alone understand most of the articles here.

        They only have one thing in mind: destroy the ones that are destroying their pathetic propaganda.

        Unfortunately for them, they’re failing miserably with each “attack” they make, they only make things worse for their bald master in malacañang.

    1. Hmm, makes you wonder whether the prospect of Ngoyngoy streaking and its being broadcast on yellow media for all the Philippines to see would be enough incentive for GRP to back down.

      What is seen cannot be unseen, you know.

  3. When you build your good reputation on Press Releases; without a sustaining good accomplishments. This is the result. You will become a JOKE of the country.

    They tried to copy the tactic of Joseff Goebbels of the Germany’s Nazi Propaganda Machine. However, they failed. They did not know that Joseff Goebbels was a holder of a true PhD degree, from a reputed German University. And , had a very high IQ.

    King Pnoy Aquino has also an honorary PhD degree from FordHam University; which he bought for a few millions U.S. dollars. But, it is no help to him…he did’nt earn it with a drop of sweat…

  4. As I heard from the local radio, even Penoy’s minions can’t stop him from doing stupid things such as his everyone wear yellow ploy. He’s a manchild sitting in the highest chair of the Philippines.

    Another thing, the current theme song of current administration:

  5. FYI on DAANG MATUWID (Straight Road)

    In DRIVING
    Most dangerous driving conditions encountered is a dry STRAIGHT ROAD. Big danger is we all think that there are no apparent dangers (over confidence). On a winding, wet mountain road all senses of driver are tuned into staying on the road. But on a dry straight road complacency creeps in, drivers are not scanning the road or is not on full alert (mind is occupied by changing music/radio station) the car might be drifting out its lane.

    Drivers will be tempted to overtake then miscalculate speed & distance of an approaching vehicle. As the overtaking driver it is far safer to acknowledge your error by slowing down & returning to your lane, than try and accelerate to make it, this option gives you little alternatives. If you are the driver being overtaken, hold your speed or lift of the throttle allowing the car to slow gradually, plus hold your position.

    In ARCHITECTURE & FINE ART

    1. Friedensreich Hundertwasser
    “The straight line is ungodly”

    “The straight line leads to the downfall of humanity.”

    “Just carrying a ruler with you in your pocket should be forbidden, at least on a moral basis. The ruler is the symbol of the new illiteracy. The ruler is the symptom of the new disease, disintegration of our civilization.”

    2. Antonio Gaudi
    “The straight line belongs to men, the curved ones belong to God”

    “There are no straight lines or sharp corners in nature, therefore buildings must have no straight lines or sharp corners.”

    1. Ah yes, the winding, twisting road, always more fun to drive. Belting through a corner, downshifting getting into it, clip the apex, then powering out of the corner. So many calculations to be made at a split second, but oh so satisfying when done right.

      Ah yes, Gaudi, the Catalan master, part of the charm of the Barcelona olympics was the architecture of the city. Their modernisme style made their buildings look like living things. The Casa Batlló, even though it was just an ordinary townhouse was not a boring old box by today’s brutalist ethic. Even the interior columns of the unfinished Sagrada Familia looks like tree trunks. Filipino architecture just seems so lazy–it is as though people are just content to pour concrete into a box form and call it architecture.

      Even the parthenon and the taj mahal, are considered the most perfect buildings ever built, do not have a single straight line on them. The towers in the taj mahal are curved slightly outward so that a person from afar sees them as straight and the entasis incorporated into the parthenon also gives the illusion straightness and perfection.

      So yes, what we have is only an illusion of the straight path. Hahaha
