This counts as one whopper of a WTF? statement coming from a presidential sister other than Kris Aquino. One of today’s Inquirer headlines screams: President’s sister Pinky asks kinder pupils to pray for her brother!
“Who is our brother again? You’re right, it’s Noynoy. Please pray for him because he is confronting so many problems these days,” she told the children when she attended the blessing and turnover ceremony of a P750,000 building at Buyagan Elementary School here.
Indeed, the proverbial apple does not fall too far from the proverbial tree. Aurora Corazon “Pinky” Aquino-Abellada seemingly took advantage of her being a speaker at the “blessing and turnover ceremony of a P750,000 building at Buyagan Elementary School” to impart on a bunch of kids who probably can’t tell one bozo politician from the other what may be the real point of that P750,000 dole out.

For that matter, what exactly sort of building does P750,000 build??
Sorry, I digress. You’d of course expect a sister of Philippine President Benigno Simeon “BS” Aquino III to be one of his staunchest apologists. But to direct this laughable apologism to a bunch of kindergarten kids hands down beats all the daft antics of that other stariray presidential sister Kris Aquino.
Abellada said President Aquino was doing fine amid the issues hounding his administration.
“I hope you do not give credence to the bad commentaries about Noy because he is doing all he can, he gives all he can,” she said in Filipino.
I wonder if these kids are even aware of what these “issues” supposedly “hounding [BS Aquino’s] administration” are.
You can’t get any lower than this.To attempt to politicise the young minds of the youth — worse, with Yellowist rhetoric — and indoctrinate them with the idea that effort alone trumps results is setting up the future generation of Filipinos with the same sort of emo victim mentality that ran the nation to the ground.
Bottomline here is simple: results.
The next generation of Filipinos should be trained to ask the simple question whenever people they thought they could rely upon come back to them with mere excuses:
Where are the results?
Filipinos’ consistent failure to ask that simple question whenever Fiesta Elections come around the corner has resulted in the Philippines’ slow but relentless degeneration into a failed state over the last several decades since being granted “independence” by the United States in 1946. Just seeing the sort of drivel being imparted by yet another Aquino sibling on the impressionable minds of the youth gives one sufficient cause for pause to take stock of the vast and profound cancer that infests Philippine society.
Is there really hope for the Philippines?
Not if mere excuses suffice to assure the wretched lot. A nation of people who fail to focus on results, quite simply, get none of it.
