OF BLACK AND WHITE

By: Ben Emata

Pres. Digong Duterte who accused five army generals of links to the business of illegal drugs has admitted he has no solid evidence against them. How can this be? As a lawyer, he should have known fully well that maliciously humiliating and putting to public shame anyone is a crime as well as bad lifestyle and conduct. He must have leaned so much on his presidential immunity to suits but how about the tears of the generals and their families? Who gave him the false information and for what reason? I cannot figure out the pain inflicted to the generals. Three of the five generals saw Bato and all of them were emotional on the matter. They denied the charges. I have been saying during the campaign that Duterte is one guy who talks too much. Certainly, there is nothing wrong in opening one’s mouth excessively as long as there is basis in the pronouncements.

Tension between America and China is getting hotter on the issue of the Scarborough Shoal. The international tribunal in the Hague will render its decision anytime this week on the petition of the Philippines relative to ownership of the disputed seas and it is believed the judgment will be in favor of our country. China, however, said it will not accept any unfavorable decision and will go on with its claim of the shoal. When American warned China about the issue, the latter declared they are not afraid of trouble. Notwithstanding the hot atmosphere on the matter, I still hope peace and friendship between the two superpowers will prevail.

I wish to inform the people of Cagayan de Oro that Mayor Oscar Moreno who is facing cases has numerous remedies on the issue. There is the court of appeals and the Supreme court. Meantime, I wish those noisy supporters and politicians to close their mouth and wait to avoid disturbing the tranquility in the city. Let us give peace a chance.

Politics in the Philippines breeds dirty people yet adored and cherished by everybody. The activity does not end even after the elections. Fighting in and out rage until supporters are killed. Protests, violence and others prevail year round. This is just ugly and people around the world are laughing at us. It is a shame.

The disputed Philippine seas is being patrolled by several countries such as America, China, Indonesia, Vietnam and other claimants. The Scarborough is worth fighting for because of its huge deposits of oil and other expensive minerals reportedly worth billions of dollars.

Accusing former president Noy Aquino of some of his alleged failures like those of the Mamansapano incident and others is definitely linked to political rivalry. As far I am concerned, Aquino is one president who has done more good for the country than harm. He has modernized our military by buying updated fighter jets and battleships and many more. He should be remembered by his honest leadership and set aside politics because it has no basis in truth and in fact.

I thought the Communists in the Philippines will stop fighting the government when Duterte sits as president. Lately, an NPA commander declared they will continue in their war against the government. I know why. Their objective is to take over the country and declare it a communist state and nothing else. They have disturbed the country for almost half a century (47 years) and still they cannot win the war. It is a foolish war.

Our country is now in the typhoon season, We should not be surprised if typhoons come and go in short intervals. Just be ready to evacuate to safe grounds when the need arises. Never trust the weather season because it has victimized so many people. Those who reside in river banks better go up to the hills and plant bananas rather than complain.

Pres. Duterte keeps saying “patayin ko kayo”. I think he should change his lifestyle and behave well as president of the country. His “bugoyish” trademark is bad specially to the youths. That maybe acceptable when he was mayor in
Davao City but not as chief executive of the country. He must give respect to the Filipinos and certainly to himself.

Crimes are taking plce in the country every minute of day. This is terrible. I am extremely tired of hearing TV news stories about rapes, murders, homicide, kidnapping, robbery, etc. everyday. Ano ba yan, lol. The irony is Duterte keeps on saying he will annihilate crimes in the country.

A congressman filed a bill that says “no work no pay” for members who are absent during office hours. I like this very much. Manny Pacquiao when he was a congressman attended only four sessions for the entire year and he got paid with allowances. The sad thing he just sat down and closed his mouth. And he was not ashamed despite criticisms from the media. Now he is senator. BEN EMATA
