Love-Hate and Yellow Ribbons

Its really a love-hate relationship that we have.

I love her. All of a sudden, she does something that I think is very stupid, and unbecoming of her, so I start hating her.

Then she does something to redeem herself.

Then something blows up and she ingratiates herself with me and my sense of political propriety. I hate her once more. Then again, what is so 'proper' in politics after all? Make that, Philippine politics.

Then again, I still have high respects for her. I still have that admiration for her selfless sacrifice and hard work for the country. For a housewife to barely pull a country through, after a devastating regime under a dictator; to show the world how peace really has a chance; how prayer is power; and how this third world country could ascend to a level of global greatness!

With all the water under the bridge, and the not so helpful at all antics of some people she calls 'family'...

Never mind Tessie...

Never mind Noynoy...

Never mind Danding...

Never mind Kris even...

For now...


"Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'round that old oak tree, if you still want me..."

I still want you, Tita Cory... Get well soonest!

Oh and please don't get me wrong Tita...

Above all, this one, at the very most, is...

For Ninoy!

Not being negative here but prayers won't make her well... No matter how much healing masses will be held for her, it won't work!

Lalo na yang mga healing masses na started by politicians? Lalo lang sasama ang kalagayan ni Mrs. Aquino... Kasi, pakitang tao lang yang mga healing masses na yan eh... nagpapabango lang ng pangalan ang mga pulitikong yan... Kung gusto nilang gumaling si Mrs. Aquino, they should go to their rooms, turn down the lights, and pray silently...

Even you guys, na nagpopost ng yellow ribbons sa blogs nila, that won't work... Say silent prayers for her... No offense to anyone but as the bible says, prayers made in public won't be answered...

Luis Batchoy said...

kurog: if your words were to be believed then the EDSA People Power prayer would not have been answered too. How public can you go? Nevertheless, to each his own, go pray in your silence if that suits you. As for me, I go public on my affections. I love PDA! Hehehe... Thanks for dropping by and please do check back often. =)
