Okay, Another blog. haha! I miss writing already but I'm always at home so there's nothing to talk about. Everything is just boring. Today, I had a chat with a friend thru sms. Here's what we discussed. :)
Her: Nakaka F si Pinoy, imbis na problema ng bansa inaatupag, lovelife ang ginagawa nyang topic. Imbis na i-discuss nya sa mamamayan ang plano nya para itaas ang ekonomiya natin, ang sinasabi nya ay tungkol sa pagkasal bago matapos ang termino nya asih!
Me: Di nya naman kasalanan yun, ang kulit kasi ng media. Nakikialam pa sa private life eh.
Her: Kung di naman po kasi nya ginawa eh di hindi makikita. Pero tama naman, kasi di pinapakita mga mabubuti nyang ginagawa. Pero siba dapat may gawin sya para gumanda tingin sa kanya ng mga tao? At kung magco-comment sya dapat sa sitwasyon ng bansa, hindi showbiz ang palasyo. J
Me: Karapatan nya na magkaroon ng private life. Binata sya at tao din naman sya. Bawat tao ay entitled magkaroon ng private life. Kaya nga ayaw nya makialam ang media. Hindi ibig sabihin na presidente sya ay bawal na nya gawin yun.
Her: Problema nya yun at hindi problema ng bansa yun. Mas maraming problema ang mga mamamayan kaysa sa pag-aasawa nya. Mag hahanap muna ako ng makakain kaysa iisipin ang mapapangasawa nya. J
Me: Kaya nga siya pumunta ng Thailand, para ayusin ang isang problem ng bansa. Ang issue ng asawa2 na yan hindi naman yan mabo-brought up kung hindi sya tinanong at kinulit ng media. Hanggang Thailand hinahabol pa din sya ng intriga.
Her: Hindi lang yun ang problema ng bansa. Well, siguro let’s give him time? Kasi wala pa syang nagagawa, mag one year na sya sa June 30 as president pero wala pa rin syang napapatunayan. Sana hindi matapos ang termino nya na ang ginawa ay mag asawa. J
Me; Tumaas na nga ratings nya. Wala pa syang major thing na napatunayan pero he did a very good job for the past year. Lahat sinisimulan nya sa baba, sa maliit na bagay. Tama naman yung ginagawa nya eh. At least na-lessen ang corruption sa bansa. Ang pag-aasawa, private life nya yun, wag na lang sana pakialaman ng media. Hindi naman mata-topic ang pag-aasawa kung hindi tinatanong at kinukulit ng media.
Me: Hindi lang yun ang prob ng bansa pero at least may ginagawa sya. Hindi naman maaayos agad ang bansa in 1 year lang and hindi rin maaayos ang bansa kung hindi makikipag-cooperate ang mga Pilipino. Yes, he definitely HAS the power to control everything, but without the cooperation and discipline of the Filipino people that “everything” wll be “nothing”.
Her: That’s why I said 6 years is long enough. Yes the Filipino needs to be disciplined. I know, I understand, and I hope Filipinos too will change. And we need a leader of course, to lead us but that won’t happen I the president won’t personally help the Filipinos. Actually, kahit hindi na sya mag bahay bahay katulad nina Quezon at Magsaysay. Kahit tabloid lang basahin nya, o kahit nga manud sya ng morning news okay na eh. Basta at the end of the day kahit isang problema lang ng mga Pilipino, kahit yung pinakasimple lang magawa nya, if not at least ma-plano man lang nya. Kung di kaya, Martial Law. Matino sya he won’t ask for more power. Magrerebelde ang mga Pilipino, Oo. Pero if he’ll do it in a way na pagbabago ng bansa para magandang bukas, why not? If he only talks to us, letting all Filipinos know what his term will lead us . I’m sure na magiging maayos ang lahat. Media again? No. sa ibang bansa once nag salita ang president everyone must watch, titigil ang class para lang making. Can’t he do that? I’m sure he can if he wants to.
Me: Go, ikaw na maging presidente. :P hindi yun ganun kadali. Madali man diktahin sa kanya, ganito-ganyan ang gawin nya, but once you’re in his position, it’s difficult. Kaya, time should be given. Don’t compare it to other countries because there are lots of differences. Hindi lahat ng Pilipino ay nakikinig at hindi lahat ay gusting bigyan sya ng chance. Remember, he ran for president not because of himself but because the people wanted him to.
Her: If I could I will. I know mahirap. Maging estudyante pa nga lang mahirap eh, pano pa kaya maging presidente? Lahat may antis. At kung may antis ba katapusan na ng mundo? Antis must be your confidante. Yes, Filipinos voted for him but sino ba ang tumakbo? We must not give him time? Ibig sabihin wala na tayong pag-asa? Pilipino lang dapat kumilos? Kung yun ang hinihintay ni Pnoy baka sa kamatayan nya hindi pa mangyayari yun. Filipinos need a leader that would scare them yet love them too. Pnoy must do that. May sala ang mga tao, sino ba ang wala? Pero bakit nagiging mabait ang isa? Diba dahil nahihikayat ng pangalawa? 1 is not the only number. Dapat may pangalawa, pangatlo at nth pa, dapat may nangunguna mag lead, at yun ang position ng president, he must lead us, not only the name, not only the country but every living being. Hindi nawawala ang pagka-adik ng isang tao ng mag-isa. He needs someone to help him. And that’s what it takes para maging matino ang mga Pilipino, we need Pnoy to lead us.
Me: Actually he is already leading us by his example in life. He never did spend more than what he should in running this government. So much so that he was able to save and we were able to have a surplus in our budget which has never happened in the past administration. If we expect something magical or extraordinary thing to happen in a matter of a year in our country, that will be very impossible who may ever be the president now because of the huge problem that was left behind by the other administrations. I think the most we can do for him is to show a little appreciation and inspiration for him to do more this coming year and to be more tolerant and respect his private life because all people are entitled to it.
Her: And I hope too that everyone will know that. I was actually really happy when Pnoy decided to stop smoking, it’s a good start, leading Filipinos on a good way. But I’m telling you, every little thing matters, even just a simple brushing of his teeth after eating, my sisters are having problems with that, and every little thing he does in goodness would be nothing if Filipinos know nothing about it. Media? Can’t he make it as his ally? Is that really hard? Lead us and we must know that he lead us. Medias fault? Dang, edi kung media ang nasusunod eh di media na lang mag lead sa atin. Media ang mali? Eh di tanggalin ang media? Media ang tama? Sundin ang media? NO. Media is neither right or wrong because at the end of the day it’s the president who decided and acts what he does.
Me: President Noy Knows the problem of our country but remember this is a democratic country so he cannot do anything drastic because there is such thing as due process. Media plays a big role and media itself is divided. Some are praising him, others are criticizing him. As far as I’m concerned that is a healthy practice because if all media will be singing alleluia, the president will never know what are the real problems. However I wish they will leave out his private life because as the word connotes, it is private.
