Amazing grace: Bongbong Marcos could’ve struck back during #PiliPinasDebates2016 but chose not to

vice_presidents_election2016

Imagine if vice presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos (BBM) was as abrasive and harsh as Alan Peter Cayetano. Yesterday’s vice presidential debate would have deteriorated very quickly. BBM kept his cool because nothing could be achieved by attacking back. Yet, he could if we think about it. Rene Cayetano, the father of Alan, was a partner in Pecabar, which was the go-to law firm during Martial Law (ML), because Enrile was also a partner in the firm. So, you could say that the father of Alan was a beneficiary of ML because his family was part of the then powers-that-be.

Then you have Leni Robredo, whose father was also appointed by former president Ferdinand Marcos (FM) as a judge. Then you have Chiz Escudero, whose father was the Agriculture Minister of FM. Of course, Gringo Honasan was of the inner circle of Enrile at the Department of National Defense (DND) and privately also the COO of the businesses of the Enriles in Cebu. If they are so antagonistic against BBM, gosh their candidates are people who led very comfortable lives during ML. Surely, if BBM wanted to, he could have asked his staff to dig all sorts of dirt against the families and friends of his opponents, like what they are doing against him. But, what would that achieve? A scorched earth policy? But, what would that build when he has now chosen a path of mending and unifying?

What Alan has proven is that he is a seasoned bellyacher, which means he should remain in the Blue Ribbon Committee where his talent could be more useful. He could also be a good trial lawyer, and I believe he should pursue such. But to be in the Executive Department, much more a VP? Gosh, how could he execute policies and programs with such abrasiveness. He even outdoes his father who was a suave gentleman and thus, is the opposite of his father.

He is also trying to outdo lawyers like Rene Saguisag and Joker Arroyo, and we know what kind of lawyers they are when they become politicians. They are perfect when they are in the opposition, but flounder pathetically when they find themselves in power. No, Alan cannot be in the Executive Dept, or he would just mess up that branch and waste his talent there. See, he was trying very hard to be like a Duterte, and yet it can be seen he is no Rodrigo Duterte, so he looks like a court jester in the court of Duterte. Sonamagan, how some people will go to the extent of making themselves clownish just to be in power. These are really sad stories. Sayang ang mga talents, mga summa cum laudes pa naman sa school, but because power blinds them, they no longer know themselves.

I guess same could be said about Chiz who was trying to be the opposite of Alan; to be cool as a cucumber. But this guy is a schemer and is sneaky from what I hear in the grapevine. So, I get it when he tries to be flowery with his words. Gosh, he would be a great car salesman. Sayang din, cum laude din sa school, but really does not know himself anymore. He should be in the private sector, maybe as a commercial lawyer.

Never mind Antonio Trillanes. This guy shoots from the hip and says the craziest things. But, what do you expect from a megalomaniac?

I was quite impressed by BBM, Gringo and Leni. Unfortunately, Gringo and Leni are with the wrong groups; mga napilitan lang; they should detach themselves, or they are ruining their futures. Sayang din, the two.

Quite unfortunate then was the quality of the audience. They came not with an open mind, to listen to what is good for the country, and to decide their vote thereafter. They had already decided their candidate, so they came to cheer as if it was an Ateneo versus La Salle basketball match. But, the awful sounds they were generating, while I was watching the debates on TV, made me conclude early on, it was a bakya crowd, the gusgusin kind, therein. Indeed, it was a sabong. No wonder foreigners don’t respect Pinoys; they think we never take anything seriously; it’s all just joke. ..yea, it’s more fun in PHL.

If the audience had been really listening to BBM, they would have heard him asking to be the Secretary of Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE). It is the Labor Portfolio. It is the most thankless job in government. This is something phenomenal. Really, an earthquake. He is looking at doing war with Oligarchs, if he really wants to do a good job in DOLE to benefit Labor.

But, this means he understands the root cause of all problems. Humans cannot have dignity if they cannot have work. We cannot play in the global competition if part of the population is unemployed, or underemployed, or underpaid; we cannot play basketball with only two or three players; all five players should be in tip-top conditions. A secretary of DOLE, who is a VP, might just correct things in DOLE, which has so far been providing Oligarchs with slaves, who are Pinoys.

His objective obviously is the growing of the middle class. If this is the objective then all other problems start to fall in their proper and respective places. A working population means also solving cultural and social problems. It is a lofty objective, but it gives a hint that BBM is profound; all the other candidates are pygmies, as Manila Times columnist Bobi Tiglao already observed.

When BBM said this, there should have been a thunderous applause from the audience. A VP who is a Secretary of the DOLE? And not just a token czar of OFWs as before? Out of this world!!! Oligarchs must have already taken notice, and that is why they sent people to shout him down, and the propaganda machine is in full throttle.

    The obvious thing to address in labor is contractualization, and that provision in the Labor Code allowing for a company to hold an employee under probation for six months, but many companies use this to remove an employee, or declare them ended and rehired, so they can’t be made regular in the work force.

    The tragedy is that while Marcos seems to be the last bastion of decorum and civilized behavior, because of his family’s “martial law,” people these days have associated decorum and civilized behavior with being evil. This is a sad turn of the cultural mindset that could spell the end of overall decency in this country.

    Also, this one is getting floated around recently, about the Marcoses getting a contempt rap from a U.S. court and a fine of $2 billion. If this is still up, I do hope this could be resolved. But I saw “secret deal with the Philippine government,” I wonder if this was with the Aquino or related administration then (Ramos), that helped protect the Marcoses from this case.

      You’re actually spot-on.

      I remember when someone said this:

      “Buti pa noong panahon ni Marcos na pwede kang magtrabaho hanggang sa magretiro o hanggang kaya mo pa. Ngayon, pagkatapos ng 3 o 6 months tanggal ka na. Mas lalo pang humirap ang buhay.”

        “Buti pa noong panahon ni Marcos na pwede kang magtrabaho hanggang sa magretiro o hanggang kaya mo pa.

        This is a good policy. Now, we have age limit on employees so if you’re over 25, 30’s or 40’s it’ll be difficult for you to land a job. And people with a physical defect also work during Marcos time. I remember my grandfather told me that there’s a resto in Rizal Park where the service crew are, I’m sorry, I can’t remember if it’s deaf or blind.

    Honasan is the son in law, of Enrile. Enrile’s mistress bore him a daughter. And, the illegitimate daughter , became Honasan’s wife.

    We can examine, the capabilities of those candidates thru the debates. They all have to think on their feet.

    Still, I do not endorse any candidate. You decide, who can be the Vice President.

    I don’t get the point of this post kung wala namang direct example. It’s one of the posts na “Cayetano sucks because (states opinion here as if it matters)” alam na alam mo na agad ung agenda right at the get-go. I also don’t get the argument that BBM could have “struck back”, it’s a debate, parang mong sinabi na “I admire pacquiao for no throwing punches against bradley, it just shows how pacquiao is the supreme boxer”. Kabobohan naman un, eh kung kaya nya naman palang ipaglaban, edi why not? It just shows 2 things, unang una sa lahat, ndi nya alam ano purpose ng pinuntahan nya. Pangalawa, pinapakita nya nalang din na hindi nya alam paano depensahan sarili nya.

      It made me curious enough to ask you this:
      If Bradley would be throwing punches below the belt, do you mean that Pacquiao should do it too? Kabobohan ba kung hindi? Or is it simply playing by the rules? Or in the debates’ case just being the better Candidate? or Smarter?

        What you just said Jackson were very smart and logical.what Cayetano didn’t realize that he’s sharp tounge would put him more below the survey and BBM’s cool under fire attitude( which i thought comes naturally from him),brought him to the top.

      Like you said, it’s a debate. It wasn’t a senate hearing. It wasn’t the proper platform do be ranting about your opponent’s family, paticularly his father.

      Cayetano focused too much on throwing shades instead of actually discussing the solution to the country’s problem. He kept yapping about corruption and the idea that they will eradicate crime. And I kept thinking “ok dude, cool. But HOW are you gonna do it??” I wanted to hear his plans but he focused too much on BBM. Everything he said about BBM was already repeated dozens of times over the past few months. He basically wasted most of our time.

      BBM couldve revealed all the corruption cases against the Cayetanos but he didn’t. Because that’s not what the debate is for!!]

      As Gringo repeatedly said: “there is a proper place and time”. Alan was all over the place, he was being a prosecutor — in a debate! The debate was supposed to be on the issues dished out by the moderators, not on allegations, accusations, and perceived wrongdoings. He was like a maldita making “parinig” and “pasaring” and when these failed, outright taunts naman para lang patulan siya.

      I believe the writeup makes perfect sense. If you can’t understand it, it basically boils down to how BBM chose to be his higher self and not stoop to the level of his bashers, and how he really has a plan of service (in his wanting to be DOLE sec) coz despite the popular choice to be DILG sec, he chose a “thankless” job.

      Actually, Leni was also a turn off during the debate in the sense that she engaged in issuing innuendoes (pasaring, parinig). Tsk tsk. And I thought she was classy (classy meaning may breeding, hindi classy na sosyal).

      We have to think of the purpose of the debate here. Emphasis on purpose and debate. What Cayetano did was to undermine BBMs credibility all throughout the session which was not the purpose of the debate. The purpose was to show the people concrete plan of actions for the country if they are elected VP. Should there be any conflict in the POVs among the contenders, that’s where the debate ensues. A debate should be an intelligent flow of discussion and rebuttal of ideas among the contenders, what happened was politicking at its finest (specially on the side of Cayetano). Digging up old bones and throwing it to someone who is not entirely liable for such actions is not a debate. BBM is not the entirety of the Marcos clan, he is an individual running for an office. His family’s track record in Philippine politics is not his track record as an invidual politician. Cayetano should’ve known better.

      Lemme give you a concrete example on how the world works.
      I’m an engineer and I used to work for a big developer/construction company. The company borrowed 1.5 billion pesos from BDO for the construction of a condominium building. The idea is that we borrow money from a bank, build a condominium, and the profit from the condominium will be used to pay for the money borrowed from the bank. After the debt is paid, all that there’s left is the continiuing profit from the condominium. In short, we borrowed money and invested it.

      We believe that was the late Marcos’s plan. He borrows money from the world bank to build structures to better our lives and in a couple of years, we’ll be able to pay for those debt. But his plans were not continued. So think of it this way. Before the construction of the condominium was finished, the owner of the company died, and the company was given to a person with no idea how to run a company. The new owner didn’t continue building the condominium and they are now complaining that they have so much debt to pay.

      wiki:
      Under Marcos, the Philippines saw its external debt balloon from $360 million (U.S.) in 1962 to $28.3 billion (U.S.) in 1986.[23] Much of this debt was for the government to finance economic development projects..

      Marcos built us a lot of infrastructure (Geothermal plants, LRT, Heart/Lung/Kidney Center, PICC, NLEX, SLEX, CCP, NAIA, San Juanico, BNPP, etc.) except that the next administration was too incompetent to run BNPP -> so 2.3B USD went down the drain. We’d rather have brownouts and pay high electric bills; keeping investors from coming in. We have hardly expanded the LRT system to the likes of what our Asian neighbors have.

      Our current external debt is at 78B USD. So the Marcos years were really a quantum leap in our debt, even considering inflation into account (value of money then was actually higher); but they were all great investments.

      Of course we can’t pay all at once. And we even keep borrowing new loans while slowly paying old ones. We have a 3 Trillion peso budget for 2016. 14% goes to debt servicing.

      2016 budget

      From a bigger picture, with a 300B USD GDP, and a public debt of 37% of GDP, we’re not really a sinking ship. The problem really is translating our development into something more pro-poor/inclusive, and getting more bang for the buck in how we invest those precious loans.

      It all boils down to the twin towers: corruption and incompetence. Vote for leaders who will eliminate these 2 evils in our society/government guys.

      With news as good as this, looks like we’re on the right track:

Tthe Bataan Nuclear Power Plant for example became too expensive to operate due to the constant pillaging and sabotage the CPP/NPA is doing to the plant. Then you have the Cory Aquino Admin cancelling all projects marcos already initiated. These cancellations wasted millions of taxpayers’ money. This is why our national debt ballooned.

        There’s nothing wrong with Leni but Im just worried for her as VP. Remember, her basic function is to replace the Pres in case he or she dies for whatevet reason. Sorry but she does not have the character to govern this chaotic Country & undiscipline people. Remember her campaign is financed by the oligarchs and one can already conclude what happens when she becomes VP or Pres.

    President Marcos’ policy is really a high standard. He want’s to be in par with other European and Western countries. He foresees that the Philippines could be the number one country in the world. But the enemy stole that dream for their own ill-ambition.
    He’s son Bongbong Marcos Jr. is a legacy of his father. A a young age he had been so much involved in everything. During his earlier period of political career, he already proved himself to be worthy of the name Marcos. He’s vision he got from his father could save the country from being torn apart.

    Marcos is a very curious case. Obviously, he’s done some things for the country or at least, his province/region.

    However, he’s dragged down by his own name and his own family.

    There’s also the issue about Oxford; whether you believe that he embellished his resume and got caught or failed to understand what his diploma meant is no longer important, the fact that this became an issue in the first place affects voter trust.

    The sad part these days is that no one seems to be making a better account of themselves than Marcos Jr. There should be more. Perhaps they were cut out of the race by Comelec, or they decided to give in to the bakya and palengkero style. I wonder what does it take to bring back true class acts in the country. I think it has to start with the people than the politicians. Perhaps we should run more people through something like a John Robert Powers course?

    Debates should not be done as they are doing it. Throwing mud at each other and giving accusations here and there. These candidates should understand that the real essence of these debates is to show the voting public how capable and qualified they are to be future leaders of the country. Instead of criticizing what their opponents did not do or have not done in the past, they should focus on laying their platforms and giving concrete solutions for the many pre-existing problems we already have. I think that the best thing to debate about is their capability to put all their plans and promises into action and not by accusing or blaming their opponents. Ang lumalabas niyan parang batuhan lang ng putik. Kung sino pinakamagaling umilag, mag-ayos at magmalinis, siya magmumukhang busilak sa mata ng tao at siya ding mananalo.

    It’s pretty obvious that Cayetano was attacking Bong Bong not only on a personal level but very below the belt because Bong Bong is now leading the race for the VP post. Assuming, for the sake of argument, that former President Marcos indeed committed atrocities, engaged in nefarious activties et al during his term, still the lives of the average Filipino family back then was way way better even after Cory and the Presidents next to her took over. Trouble with these politicians nowadays is their lack of delicadeza. When JPE, during one of the deliberations in the Senate, accused Cayetano’s father Rene of taking some monies with him from the PECABAR law office he said that his father can no longer answer the former’s accusations due to obvious reason. But why the heck is he blaming BBM for the sins of the latter’s father. How old was Bong Bong when Martial Law was declared. Barely turned 15. Did BBM participate, whether directly or indirectly and benefited from all of these? I don’t know if Cayetano is really serious in winning the VP post. If he is, then he should start re-thinking his strategies to win the voters’ nod. In the recently concluded VP debate aired via CNN Phils., Cayetano was running berserk while BBM was so cool. And, if for some reason, should Cayetano (together wiht his ilk, kiln and what have you) succeeded in blocking BBM’s way to Vice Presidency, I would rather see either Senator Gringo Honasan or Congresswoman Leni Robredo (who was a big revelation on that debate)getting the VP seat. No Siree, not Chiz “the cunning” Escudero or Antonio “so much balls” Trillanes IV. I guess it’s high time to really vote for the right candidates. As for the Presidency, well, it’s an altogether different matter. Need I say more?

    Imagine the days back in the provinces. where people live in fear. Trucks passes every night full of dead bodies of soldiers. Imagine how strict it was that if you travel alone. Theyll arrest uou and accuse you of being an NPA. Youre put to jail. Your wife raped even before they can see you inside the cell. Commodity is hard because everything is blocked by the guards of each gate through the town. Soldiers plunder your house, they take stuff from your grocery store. Soldiers calls the shots on their own will. Imagine if you knew a Marcos cronie that can transfer trust bonds per million in just one page of a paper.

    Point is you didnt live in the horrors of that time. Argue with a martial law victim and they may kill you themselves. Kill the padrino system if you owe them. The ramualdez n marcos is a scary clan. But the innocense snd stupidity of the people is just glaring all around us.

    My God! You voting for Marcos?

    We will be the laughing stock of the whole world if we do that. Filipinos asked for Marcos to step down last 1980’s and now we are bringing his son to the 2nd highest position of the country…. where’s the logic on that?

    And yes, he cannot ask forgiveness for his father but he never showed empathy towards the Martial Law victims- there were women who were ganged-raped because they were activists. There were men who were electrocuted. And not only that, before Martial Law, Philippines was one of the richest country in Asia and after Martial Law, we are one of the poorest country until now. Richer are getting richer and the number of poor people are increasing.

    My father also experienced brutality of Marcos regime. He was just a History teacher explaining to the students about the ill-effects of Martial Law. After a few days, a group of men riding a motorcycle went to our house and threatened my lola and ordered her to inform his son-in-law that he should stop his lecture against Marcos. My parents were quite scared when they heard that. And to think my mother was pregnant at that time.

    My father was only discussing his view! And just imagine, we cannot speak our minds, and I’m sure if social media (FB, Twitter, Instagram) existed that time, those who are posting anti-government remarks will be penalized.

    Now you tell me I-vote-for-Marcos should a Marcos be a part of this government. My answer is a big NO.

    And by the way, ang kapal ng mukha ng mga Marcos. They still run for offices despite of their corruption. Other countries, nag suicide na sila for bringing their family name to shame!

      Son, you should changer your username to FAIL AKO. And here is why:

      We are ALREADY the laughingstock of the whole world after Marcos left. And to tell you, only the HAKOT crowd Filipinos “asked” for Marcos to step down and what’s next? The deluge. In case you don’t notice, many people are trying to bring Marcos’ son to the 2nd highest position because of one thing: Yellow incompetence.

      And yes, people like you are overrating his atrocities. And you’re implying that there are no atrocities AFTER Marcos? Please, don’t take them out of the equation because you’re making a fool of yourself if you did that. As the words of GRP residential commenter Add said this:

      I am not sure yet, but Bongbong seems to be the thankful kind, happy to be given a second chance. Everything is a bonus hereafter. Of course, he will not apologize. Beside the point that this is a high stake political power play, gosh, this is a culture that thinks apology is weakness of character, instead of strenght in character. But if he cannot apologize by words, he is already doing it by actions. Think about it, Ilocos, of which he was a governor and where his sister is now, is the province growing its middle class the fastest in the country. Tourism and agriculture are in boom. Province has the lowest energy cost. And note this, the only LGU that has ISO9000, and thus, systemized. The accounting audit by COA says the province is always clean as a whistle. You can check what he has done in Congress, as well as what he is doing in the Senate; these are in the web. Yet, media suppresses news about them. To me, that is an apology in the works, an apology in progress. It is an apology better than just words.

      And no, after Marcos left, we are indeed one of the poorest countries until now. It wasn’t Marcos to be blamed but the people after him. Take note of that.

      Lemme tell you about this: my father lived through the Martial law years. And in contrary to what you’re dad says, it’s just the opposite: nothing bad has happened to him. You people love to overrate his atrocities yet there are people who found out the truth that it is also a time where society is disciplined. I wanna ask: what the hell did your father do anyway?

      Here’s something you need to know:

      But, if we let our emotions take the better of us, we would not see what is really going on. For one, if we just consider those who are the loudest in their rhetorics against BBM today, where were they really during the ML years? I could name some of those who really had a good life during those dark days. This is why if you have been following the columns of guys like Bobi Tiglao, Bono Adaza, Alex Magno, Kit Tatad, etc in the broadsheets, and Teddy Locsin, etc on TV, guys who were in the thick of the original anti-Marcos movements, they are questioning the MOTIVES of this new anti-Marcos movement.

      About social media: Singapore has it yet they were still one of the best countries to live in. Seems you’re fine with “freedom of speech” rather than something fruitful like “freedom from poverty.” You’re actually fine because you love your fellow kababayans starving and you say “So what? At least we are free to speak our minds.” What’s the use of freedom if there is no responsibility and discipline?

      Now you tell me I-vote-for-Marcos should a Marcos be a part of this government. My answer is a big WHY NOT?.

      And in case you don’t notice, mas makapal ang mukha ng mga Aquino. They are still worshiped as demi-gods from people like you despite of their incompetence, stupidity and corruption, worse than the Marcos. Oh yeah, that’s cultural difference.

      I’m sure your there were more reasons why your father was threatened. He probably had some radical ideas that did not sit well with some of the students (which goes to show how much faith the people had in the police/armed forces at that time, that they went to all the trouble reporting it to authorities). And what do i mean about radical? Communist views, of course! Now, before you toot your horn, i believe that communism is the best form of government – on paper. When it comes to real-world application, well, not so much. Why does it sit well with activists like KMU? because if applied, it will cause the oligarchies to crumble, everything will be state-owned, and EVERYBODY will have to do their share of work to make this country great. Why does it not does not sit well with most of us? its because we value freedom. and capitalism, hahaha.
      Insurgency during those times were quelled immediately to avoid what happened to china. What if the communist ideals were sown onto the youth of the 70s? we couldve had our own version of the Great Leap Forward, our own Tiananmen Square, instead we had… Martial Law and Plaza Miranda.
      I guess if FM was never there and aquino was in power then… well, we’d probably all be commies right now, and you know what – we wouldnt be having this conversation because we’d probably be too busy working for less than minimum wage in a factory for 16 hours a day. But in that alternate universe, the nation would be great, just like china today.

      DOLE is under the executive branch of the government and do you think being a secretary of every executive branch is elected just like a senator, congressman and every barangay officer? Nope, they were appointed by none other than the president himself. Do you think Mar Roxas was elected as DILG secretary? No, he was appointed by Noynoy.

      And if you think this article is promoting BBM, you are blinded with your own mindless rage and emotive bickering. Bongbong showed class and decency while Cayetano does the opposite. It seems you never watched Cayetano over the years. He’s a good prosecutor and stuff but as vice-president? He’s more fit at the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee due to his polarizing character. In fact, he’s the opposite of his father, the late Rene “Compañero” Cayetano, who is an actual gentleman.

      And please, you didn’t even know what a debate is and how it works. A debate is a formal contest of argumentation between two teams or individuals. Sorry to tell you, but what Alan did is informal. And you should know what the term “ad hominem” means: it’s a logical fallacy in which an argument is rebutted by attacking the character, motive, or other attribute of the person making the argument, or persons associated with the argument, rather than attacking the substance of the argument itself. Iyan ang ginawa ni Cayetano kay BBM.

      So tama na ang pagiging isip bata mo and set your priorities for once. Ika nga ni Jim Cornette: Thank you, fuck you, bye! 🙂
