LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Your rulers are rebels, partners with thieves; they all love bribes and chase after gifts. They do not defend the cause of the fatherless; the widow’s case does not come before them…” (Isaiah 1:26, the Holy Bible).

WHOM SHOULD WE BLAME FOR KIDS PEDDLING SHABU IN CAVITE?  Who are we to blame for the arrest, last Saturday, September 23, 2017, in Salawag, Cavite, of four minor children allegedly on account of their having been found inside a drug den in the place and of police reports that they are in fact being used as drug couriers transporting illegal drugs to addicts in Cavite?

Is it the owner of the drug den who is said to have been responsible for mobilizing the children to distribute illegal drugs? Or their parents and relatives who not only did not have any concern at all for the minors’ well-being, but even clearly consented to their illegal transactions involving drugs?

Or, can we blame the law authored by Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, which is the Juvenile Justice Law—the law which removed the criminal liability of children who are below 18 years of age—-even if they have committed even the most heinous of crimes like peddling and trading of shabu and other illegal drugs?

PHILIPPINES, A WOUNDED NATION: Here are some parts of an article written by Social Work and Development Undersecretary Lorraine Marie T. Badoy which I think should be read by those who, until now, support politicians who are opposing President Duterte, especially those who are supporting former President Noynoy Aquino. I translated portions of that article in Filipino for the Filipino version of this column.

Read on: “We’re such a wounded people that we understand better a president who, through his terrible incompetence and indifference–an indifference I find unforgivable—not only caused the deaths of 44 of our men in uniform but when they died, refused to meet the bodies of our heroes and lend weight to their deaths.

“We understand better this incompetent and indifferent president than we do this President who leaves the comfort and safety of his palace and actually goes all the way down in the battle zone where bullets can take him down.

-ooo-

“WE TRY TO UNDERSTAND MORE THE PRESIDENT WHO PLAYED DOTA ALL DAY”: “…And when a hail of bullets meet him and he is forced to take shelter in a mosque, the one thing that we’ve allowed to enter our consciousness is not how this President risked his life to be with his men and not how we’ve never seen anything like it—-ever before.

“Not his heroism and his great love for us but this—THIS—is what has tied up in a bunch: that he forgot to take off his shoes as he ran to take cover in a mosque when a hail of bullets rained down on him. And we give him hell for it.The inanity of it all.

“We understand better a president who plays DOTA all day than we do a President who works HARD all day.We understand better presidential plunderers than we do this President who is incorruptible…”
