(BY: ATTY. BATAS MAURICIO) LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… The Lord will strike you with… scorching heat and drought… which will plague you until you perish. The sky over your head will be bronze, the ground beneath you iron…” (Deuteronomy 28:22-23, the Holy Bible).
NEWS ON PNOY COLLAPSE DIVERSIONARY TACTIC ONLY?Can we blame Filipinos who entertained the thought that the news that President Aquino collapsed Friday night (March 20, 2015) was a mere diversionary tactic aimed at generating sympathy for him, especially in the light of recent survey reports showing all his ratings having gone down dramatically and in worst fashion yet?
If the truth be told, it is not just Aquino’s popularity and trust and performance ratings that went down, as a result of his bungling the Mamasapano murders of 44 officers and men of the Special Action Force. He and his government have also irretrievably lost any iota of credibility they may have enjoyed before, making Filipinos disbelieve whatever they are saying now.
Aquino and his gang must now realize that they no longer have any moral ascendancy to continue holding on to the reins of power, and the sooner they quit the better it will be, not only for the Filipino people, but more for themselves. If they will not cut and cut cleanly now, they will have to suffer the ignominy of being ousted from power by the very people who idolized him before.
HELL IN DILIMAN, QUEZON CITY:It was literally hell for hundreds and hundreds of motorists who used the Elliptical Road around the Quezon Memorial Circle in Diliman, Quezon City last Saturday, March 21, 2015. Imagine, vehicles were literally packed like sardines in a small tin can, unmoving, and stuck in their places for hours on end.
What was more infuriating was the fact that, there were no traffic enforces, either from the Quezon City government of Mayor Bistek Bautista, nor from the Metro Manila Development Authority of Chairman Francis Tolentino, leaving motorists to fight off the grid among themselves, resulting in total chaos until late into Saturday night.
Then, there were even no signs or directions to warn motorists of the jampacked road. What caused all of these? A road repair recklessly started and then left unattended by a contractor. The only consolation in all these is the thought that, indeed, Bistek was simply repeating the inanities and ineptness of national government officials on many other more serious issues.
ASSURING WATER AT ANGAT DAM THROUGH THE BIBLE: I hope Max Peralta, a senior hydrologist of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Sciences Administration (PAGASA), is correct in saying that the water impounded at the Angat Dam in Bulacan will not dry up despite the onslaught of the El Nino phenomenon during the summer months of March and April.
The truth, however, is that, Angat Dam containing sufficient water is a matter which is beyond human control, for there is no human technology yet which can produce water from nowhere. It is only God who can form the clouds where water will come from to quench the thirst of the people.
The unfortunate reality is that the Philippines is living in an age where God’s warnings about drought and burning temperatures and burning skies and lands hardening like iron due to extreme heat and lack of water are coming true. All Filipinos must therefore read God’s Bible and learn the amazingly simple trick of fighting off global warming and climate change, avoiding water lack and scorching weather.
