Bitch

Needless to say, the Philippine President has been having a rough time.

A governor and close friend just called her a bitch, in front of a group of professionals. That doesn’t bode well with the image the President wants to project.

However, most feminist movements now consider the word “bitch” as empowering. 

Gone are the days when being tagged as such has a negative connotation. These days, bitches are viewed as women who are strong and successful.

Newly ousted House Speaker described the nation’s leader as ungrateful. Talk about burning bridges.

Not too long ago, a Cabinet Official named the President as evil. The source is the star witness in the ZTE deal who tears up in an instant, like one of our beloved local soap stars.

I think the term “evil” is too strong a word to use for such a diminutive female leader. Then again, big things come in small packages.

So whose side are you with, the Bitch or the Cry Baby?

We should not resort to name calling. It reflects poorly on how we are as a Nation.

I am thankful that there are still people from the government who has a conscience.
I am happy to see students from different universities doing the noise barrage, students are always the key of the success of mass actions. Although, this time I am not for Revolutionary Government meaning People Power 3. Maturity of the nation can be seen on how they handle controversies like this. Let's put the President on trial. Let our justice system works for this issue.

I couldn't help but laugh whenever I recall Governor Salceda calling GMA a b!tch - and a lucky b!tch at that. Parang may katotohanan kasi. I wonder where this whole Senate investigation on ZTE would lead to. I guess to a certain extent ok na rin na nag-expose si Jun Lozada - para naman mapahiya kahit konti yung may mga pakana ng deal na 'to I don't think the middle class would do an EDSA 3 soon. Let's face it, Noli de Castro doesn't seem to be a better alternative to GMA. Come to think of it, lucky b!tch talaga si GMA. Oops...can't help but namecall too. Sorry.
