May credit card pa na tila “sky is the limit.” May pang gaso din na kahit 50 sasakyang pa na tumatakbo man 24 oras ay hindi kayang lagukin. HINDI ITO NAAMOY NG MGA TAGA-OMBUDSMAN? Pango nga eh!?

Buwan ng Enero 2009, dawit sa World Bank report  ang asawa ni PGMA sa "bid fixing," sa DPWH. Inilagay sa blastlist ni WB country director Bert Hofman ang tatlong Filipino at apat na mga kompanya ng Tsino. Ibinahagi din nito ang bahagi ng report na nagdedetalye ng naturang katiwalian, sa Ombudsman. Nag-alok pa ito (WB) ng tulong sa gagawing imbestigasyon ng Ombudsman. HINDI DIN ITO NAAMOY NG OMBUDSMAN? Kulit… pango nga!? 

Naging bantog din ang goberno, sa pamamahala ni GMA, sa buong mundo pagdating sa KURAKUTAN, at ayon sa pagkakasunod-sunod, ito ang top ten na mga ahensiya: BIR, Bureau of Customs, Department of Public Works and Highways, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Department of Education, National Irrigation Association, Department of Health, Department of Interior and Local Government, National Power Commission at Bureau of Immigration. 

Nga lang, walang ni isa sa mga punong bantay (salakay?) ng mga ahensiyang nabanggit ang nakurot man lang ng pinong-pino sa singit, bilang parusa. HINDI DIN ITO NAAMOY NG OMBUDSMAN? Wei... pango nga kasi!? 

Balitang-balita din sa mga barberya, tong-itstan, maging sa mga ihaw-ihaw ang mga karumaldumal na anomalya: NBN ZTE Scandal; Panunuhol sa mga Kongresista at Gobernador (October 2007); Pagnanakaw ng sagradong boto,  2004 Elections (Hello Garci); Joc Joc Bolante Case (Fertilizer Scam, P728 Million); Jose Pidal Bank Account (Unexplained Wealth, P200 Million); Nani Perez Power Plant Deal ($2 Million); Pagwaldas ng Road User's Tax para ipambili ng boto; Billion Peso Macapagal Boulevard (Overprice of P532 Million); Juetengate (Illegal Numbers game kickbacks); Tagong-yaman ni Arroyo sa Germany (Exposed by Senator Cayetano); Hello Garci Generals; Billion Peso Poll Automation contract (P1.3 Billion); Northrail Project($503 Million); Maguindanao Results of 2007 Elections (Zubiri, Bedol); NAIA-3; Venable Contract (Norberto Gonzales); Swine Scam – baboy na binaboy pa – (Exposed by Atty. Harry Roque), at iba pa. HINDI DIN ITO NAAMOY NG OMBUDSMAN? May sipon?

Si senador Mirriam ay kilalang kaalyado ni GMA. Nga lang hindi tayo sigurado kong siya’y ginagamit o siya’y sadyang nagpapagamit, sa pagsusulong na naman ng Cha-Cha. Ang Cha-Cha ay isa sa mga estratihiya upang malusutan ng mga KAWATAN (nakalipas na administrasyon) ang kanilang mga ginawang kasalanan sa bayan. 
Sakaling magtagumpay ito, 99.9 percent na ang magiging punong ministro ay si GMA kungdi man isang kaalyado o tuta nito. Kapag nangyari ito, yari na naman ang sambayanang Pilipino.

Paalala lang sa senadora, hindi Cha-Cha ang prayuridad ngayon  ng bayan. Huwag sanang mailihis ang pokus ng bayan sa pagtukoy sa mga itinanim ng dating pamahalaan sa goberno (para manatili itong bulok), at ang pagpatalsik sa kanila. Sila ang mga Zombies na tinutukoy ng dating sekretaryo, Angelo Reyes, na dapat kapunin. 

Sila ang nagbigay ng bagong kahulugan sa Kataas-taasan, Kagalang-galangan, Katipunan ng mga anak ng bata (KKK). Ito na ang makabago: KONEKSYON, KUWARTA, at KAPALMOKS. 

Ika nga ni sekretari Reyes: “May mga taong kilala na ng taumbayan na mga KAWATAN pero likas na makakapal talaga ang mukha at pagala-gala pa. Ayokong matulad sa kanila, dahil ang mabuhay na walang dangal ay isang trahedya na mas masahol pa kaysa kamatayan.”

Hello Garci: “Hindi ako si Superman.”
Hello Angie: “Nagsuwapang ba ako?”

Kapwa pinoy, isang text message ang lumanding sa aking selpon galing sa isang kaibigang sundalo kamakailan at ito ang sinabi: “Mas karapatdapat para sa amin (sa atin) na magdalamhati para sa mga sundalong napapaslang sa pinaglabanan samantalang gumagapang sa putikan habang pinagbabaril ng mga rebelde gamit ang mga bala at armas galing sa pamahalaan, kaysa makipagdalamhati sa nagpakasasa sa pondo ng goberno habang nakapuwesto at kumitil sa sariling buhay dahil hindi nakayanan ang kahihiyan ngunit sadya pa ring mapagmataas kaya’t mas minatamis pa ang mamatay kaysa isiwalat ang katotohanan na magpapalaya sa sambayanan sa tanikala ng kahirapan.”

Habang sinusulat ko ang kolum na ito biglang ipinalas report na dalawa na namang sundalo ang nadali ng mga bandidong Abu Sayyaf at malamang, mga bala’t armas na naman ng pamahalaan ang dumali sa kanila.
Wala ako ni bahid pagdududa na ang kanyang tinutukoy na kumitil sa sariling buhay dahil sa labis-labis na kahihiyan ay ang dating punong bantay ng sandatahang lakas na naging sekretaryo din ng iba’t ibang departamento ng pamahalaan sa ilalim ng pamumuno ni dating pangulo, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, na walang iba kungdi ang namayapang Angelo Reyes.

Nga lang, ika nga sa isang patalastas: “sa mata ng isang bata, ang maling ginagawa ng matatanda ay nagiging tama.” Kaya naman kagaya ng dapat asahan kuntodo papuri ang mga anak ng dating Heneral sa kanilang ama.

Simangot at ismid ang tugon ng mga nagpapagupit kay Bertong barbero sa gustong mangyari nina senador Gringo at Joker na gawing sekreto ang mga pagdinig sa senado. Sinayang anila ni Gringo ang kanilang boto. Si Joker naman dati na anilang Joker iyon. Papano mo naman siseryusohin mga sinasabi niya.
Papuri naman ang pasalubong, at kung kakailangin pa, pabaon, ang reaksiyon ng marami sa paninindigan ni El Presidente Enrile na tuloy ang pagkilatis upang magkaalaman talaga – kuwentas klaras baga – kung sino-sino ang mga kawatan sa kaban ng bayan, sa pamamagitan ng pagdinig na bukas sa madlang pipol hanggat hindi ito makakapinsala sa siguridad ng ating bayang magiliw. Mabuhay kayo El Presidente Enrile.

Hindi ako si Superman! Ako ba ay nagsuwapang? Naging ganid  ba ako? Mga nasambit nina Hello Garci na may umamin at nag “I am sorry,” at hello Angie na itinatanggi. Ano nga ba ang ibig sabihin ng mga bulalas na iyon? Hindi nila solong ginawa ang mga nangyaring kaungasan. Marami sila na nakinabang ng sandamakmak na kuwarta?

DANGAL, KATOTOHANAN, KATARUNGAN. Dangal higit sa lahat, kasama na ang prayd, respeto sa sarili, pagsaalang-alang sa alaalang iiwan ang mga mahalaga kay dating Kalihim Angelo Reyes. May dalawang opsiyon na puwede niyang pagpilian: istonwoling/daanin sa husgado ang labanan, o linisin ang sariling kalat at mag-ambag sa paglilinis ng sistema.
Kung marami kang koneksiyon, datong, at kapangyarihan para sustinahin ang takipan, at maaring may makapal ka’ng mukha para kayanin ang kahihiyan, takipan ang mas mainam na opsiyon. Wala aniya ako niyon, kaya pipiliin ko ang daan na may dangal, sabi mismo ng dating Kalihim Angelo Reyes, sang-ayon sa isang ulat na pinadaan kay Malou Mangahas, PCIJ.

Dagdag pa niya, “gusto nating linisin ang sistema at para ito ay makatarungan, pantay-pantay dapat itong ipapatupad at maayos. Batay sa ating karanasan, yaong may mga posisyon at kapangyarihan, suporta at koneksiyon madalas kaysa minsan, ni hindi nagagalusan man lamang. Wala nga lang ako ng kahit alin man sa mga nabanggit. Maraming taong walang kaduda-dudang mga walang dangal sa mata ng taumbayan, ang nakikita pang pagala-gala. Ayokong sumali sa kanilang hanay,” aniya. 

Bilin niya sa mga Kadete: “ang inyong propesyon ay marangal, at wala kayong dapat ikakahiya. Sinubukan kong mabuhay ng may integridad, loyalty, at buo ang loob.”

Paalala niya sa kapwa-Pinoy: “dalangin ko na ang aking kaso/sitwasyon ay huwag magamit upang tuldukan ang isyu ng kurapsiyon sa militari. Ang laban para repormahin ang sistema at ang buong bansa ay kailangan magpatuloy; ang malungkot lang na parte ay pinipili lang nila ang mga taong targitin at institusyon.”

May dalawang dahilan kaya naghaharakiri o sepukko ang mga Samurai sa bansang Hapon. Una ayaw nilang bigyan kasiyahan ang mga kalaban sa sila’y i-torture, sa sandaling nagugupo na sa labanan. Pangalawa, iginagawad nito sa sarili ang capital punishment kapag nagkasala ng karumakdumal kagawa ng treason at pandarambong. At depende sa bigat ng pagkakasala, ang ariarian at kayamanang naiwan sa pamilya ay binabawi ang kalahati o buong-buo. Inaalisan din ng rango sa lipunan ang mga ito. 

Kaya naman kuntodo ngiti si aling Maming na nagtitinda ng murang lugaw sa may kanto (sa kamurahan, halos wala na siyang kinikita kaya walang badyet pambili ng kutsara) sa pagpursige ni BIR Commissioner Kim Jacinto-Henares na kilatisin kung ipinagbayad ng buwis ang nakulimbat na kayamanan ng mga iniimbestigahang opisyal ng sandatahang lakas. Ayon kay Komisyuner, kahit galing sa nakaw ang kayamanan dapat itong ipagbayad ng buwis. 

Ngayong alam na ninyo pakisuyo na lang, pakisabi sa mga kilala ninyong akyat bahay, isnatser, mandurukot, budol-budol, at iba pa na huwag gayahin ang mga heneral na inaakusang nangulimbat. Mag kusa na silang magbayad kamo ng buwis sa BIR. Huwag na nilang antaying patatawag pa sila ng senado. Mabilad pa sila sa kahihiyan sampu ng lahat ng nakinabang sa kanila kasama na mga anak, asawa, at mga kabit pa, kung meron man.

Hindi pa natin alam kung sino ang senior associate ng dating Kalihim na kanyang pinagkatiwalaan ng kanyang “huling mga pahayag” bago kitlin ang sariling buhay. Hindi rin natin sigurado kung iyon ba ang kabuuan o tahasang pinangalanan ang mga taong nagsalaula sa bayan. Ngunit malinaw na laganap ang katiwalian sa pamahalaang Arroyo at malinaw na hindi maaring magmalinis ang sinumang mga kaalyado nito. Malinaw din ang mensaheng nais iparating ng dating Kalihim sa sambayanang Filipino na manindigan para sa KARANGALAN, KATOTOHANAN, AT KATARUNGAN.

Si Hudas ay namatay ng may dangal. Namatay siyang may dangal hindi dahil siya ay walang kasalanan. Namatay siyang may dangal dahil tinanggap niya na siya’y nagkasala at, kagaya ng mga tunay na mandirigmang Samurai, siya na mismo ang naggawad ng kaukulang parusa para sa nagawang kasalanan, sa sarili.

Sa kapwa Pinoy, at wari ko’y lalo’t higit sa kanyang mga dating kasamahan sa pamahalaang Arroyo, ito ang tagubiling nais iparating ng dating Kalihim Angelo Reyes: “ang mabuhay na walang dangal ay isang trahedya na mas masahol pa kaysa kamatayan.”

Siguro naman alam na ninyo ang dapat gawin. Nga ba?

ANG PAGTUTUWID NG LANDAS na pinagsusumikapan tahakin ng administrasyon ni PNoy ang pilit pinipilipit ng mga tatamaan. Terorismo, kanilang panlaban para lumihis ang usapan?
KALKALAN at SIBAKAN, mga ginawang katiwalian, at ang mga midnight appointees ng dating pangulong Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, ang mga unang-unang inatupag ni PNoy. Ito ay pagtalima niya sa mga pangakong kanyang inilatag sa sambayanang Filipino noong nakaraang halalan. Ito din ang matagal-tagal nang inaasam-asam ng taumbayan.
TAHASAN KONG ITINATANGGI lahat ng akusasyon laban sa akin. Paggigiit ng dating sekretaryo ng DND, DILG, DENR, DOE, at iba pa (ni minsan ay hindi nakorpirma ng Commission on Appointment), Angelo Reyes. Nga ba? 
ALRIGHT SIR. Ang alright Sir ay sagradong mga kataga sa hanay ng mga PMAer. Sagrado as in walang bahid ni katiting na kasinungalingan ang isasagot ng sinumang Aer kapag ito ay hinahamon ng Alright Sir ng kapwa PMAer. Minsan ng hinamon, sa isang pagdinig sa senado, ni Senador Ping Lacson si Secretary Angelo Reyes. Umiwas pusoy ang sekretaryo.
SPECIALIST PAY kung tawagin ito. Nagkakahalaga ng 60TUS$ bawat buwan. Ito ay bahagi ng kompensasyon ng mga sundalo na naglilikongkod sa “Peace Keeping Mission,” para sa United Nations (UN). Ang halagang ito ay ibinabagi sa tropa. Sa loob ng mahigit isang dekada, tuloy-tuloy na nagpapadala ng contingent ang ating pamahalaan, ngunit, ni hindi alam ng ating mga sundalong naitalaga na doon na mayroon ganitong biyaya para sa kanila. Nagkaalaman lamang noong si Col. Ariel Querubin ang namuno ng isang batch na ipinadala doon. Siya ay isa sa mga panauhin ng inyong lingkod sa Kilatis Panday-lipunan noong Martes. Nga lang, kahit inamin sa kanya ng mga nakatataas na opisyal, wala pa rin silang balak ibahagi ang naturang biyaya sa mga dapat tumanggap nito. “Hindi ako suwapang,” ani Secretary, sa isang pagdinig sa senado.
HINDI LANG TALAMAK, GARAPALAN NA PATI ang kinawatan sa pondo ng bayan sa AFP. Ang kalakaran kayang ito ay nangyayari din sa PNP at iba pang ahensiya o sangay ng pamahalaan? Hindi nga ba may mga Euro Generals kung tagurian? Hindi ba’t ibinaba pa nga ni noon ay Chief PNP Ping Lacson sa mga Chief of Police ang pondo noong kapanahunan niya upang maiwasan ang pangungulimbat sa gawing itaas? Nga lang, siya ay pinagkaisahan. Bumalik ba sa dating gawi ang kalakaran sa PNP matapos ang Edsahan 2? Di nga ba’t follow daw da lider? Dagdagan pa nang… “Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are.” Sino nga ba ang best friend ni Gen. Carlos F. Garcia?
BULOK ANG SISTEMA SA COA. Hindi man maatim ni Heidi Mendoza na masira ang imahe ng ahensiyang nagpaputi ng maraming hibla ng kanyang buhok at pasamain ang loob ng mga kasamang matagal niyang kasalo sa baon. Bagamat para sa interes ng sambayanan at bayan, kinakailangan niyang magsalita ng pawang katotohanan.

 HINDI MAAROK NI SENADORA MIRRIAM, kong papaano nangyaring nakapagpiyensa si Gen. Carlos F. Garci, akusado sa kasong pandarambong na non-bailable, gayong wala pa daw desisyon kung tatanggapin ng Sandiganbayan ang kanyang hirit sa inihain “Plea Bargaining Agreement.” Ibig sabihin, siya ay aamin sa mas magaang na kasong pagtanggap ng suhol lamang. Kasi nga naman kung nakatingga pa lang, pandarambong pa rin ang kaso ni Gen. Garcia. Eh bakit pinayagang magpiyensa? Ano! Hiyaw ng senadora sa mga taga Sandiganbayan. Hindi kayo nag-iisa senadora. Si Atty. Alam Paguia man ay mawiwindang din ang pag-iisip.
 HINDI RIN MAAROK ni Atty. Alan Paguia kung papaano nangyari na 70 porsiyento ang hanong ginto ng mga maliliit na miniro samantalang 30 porsiyento lamang ang sa mga dambuhalang kompanya ng pagmimina. Hindi niya rin maintindihan kung bakit ang mga hango ng mga maliliit na miniro ay siya lang napupunta sa Bangko Sentral samantalang inilalabas ng bansa ang hango ng malalaking kompanya. Hindi ba tayo naiisahan dito? Lumutang ang impormasyon noong Martes, sa Kilatis Panday-lipunan, Pulong Balitaan ng inyong lingkod. Si Director Leo Jasareno ng Mines and Geosciences Bureau ang isa sa mga resource person. Dagdag pa ni Direktor, wala ding share ang pamahalaan sa mga gintong  nahahango. Excise tax lamang ang binabayaran, aniya ng mga kompanya ng pagmimina.
 BININIGYANG BABALA NI Direktor Jasareno ang mga nasa gawing kanluran (East) sa buong bansa. Lalong-lalo na ang mga lugar na mababa at tabing bundok. Baha at pagguho nang lupa ang maaring dulot ng La Nina phenomenon. Papano malalaman ang mga lugar na nasa balag ng alanganin? Lahat ng mga Punong Barangay Chairman at mga Alkalde ay binigyan ng kopya ng report ni Direktor. Mga sir, handa na ba ang inyong mga Disaster Brigade?
WALANG KAKIBI-KIBO ang korte suprema sa nakatingang usaping impeachment laban kay Ombudsman Merciditas Gutierrez. Kumibo-kibo baka maestrok. Ang korte ay binubuo ng labing limang mahistrado. Labing apat sa kasalukuyang mga mahistrado ay naitalaga ng dating pangulong Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Ang mismong punong-bantay ng korte, Chief Justice Renato Corona, bukod sa naitalaga ng dating pangulong GMA, buong-buo ang paniwala ni PNoy na ang pagkatalaga sa kanya ay isa ding “midnight appointment.” Tanong ng mga kapwa pinoy… “saang kangkongan tayo dadamputin nito?”
