CAN I JUST RANT?

It has been a crazy weeks for us with this virus still out there, it is our true enemy but why does the government see the people as their enemy instead?

I used to hate talking about politics and I still do because I don’t know much about it. I hate arguing and I pretty much like to be ignorant with what’s happening to steer clear of negative vibes but right now it’s not just about politics, it’s also about being a humanitarian and turning a blind eye to what this fascist government is doing to our country and how they treat our fellow Filipinos just makes you like one of them.

Yes, given the fact that they still go outside amidst this pandemic and the government ordering the enhanced quarantine to somehow contain the virus from further spreading but the people barely make it through a day in their normal lives what more with this lockdown that their only form of providing for their family and for themselves is by working? And the government wants the people to listen when the message that they try to convey is anti-poor? How will you make the people listen if you try to communicate with them through fear and making them more hungrier than they were yesterday?

To the Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, I have not been a fan since your day 1 but I had hope for a change like you said. I tolerate your language because I guess that’s how you really are but in times like this a message of encouragement and hope is much needed from you rather than imposing threats and fear to your countrymen. People are finally waking up now Mr. President, we will no longer be quiet.

To the people defending this government including some of my friends and family, saying that what the president said was taken out of context, it’s not just about what he said because this wouldn’t even happen if the president was transparent with his concrete plan for this crisis (if there is such a plan). Where did the 200 Billion go? What did he do with his special power? What will happen to the Philippines? If you still don’t see why this is such a big issue, please open your heart and mind and see what this is doing to our less fortunate countrymen.

 

You wouldn’t understand, your fridge is stocked.

  1. It’s the same condition in India. Government didn’t take precautions in advance and now poor and daily wage workers are suffering because of lockdown. This government is the worst government I have ever seen. Modi proved to be the worst PM in the history of India. Media is sold out. They have become puppet of govt. There is no freedom of speech. If you criticize them, you are declared anti-national by the govt and its followers.

  2. I feel you! I used to be silent about my opinions on politics as well but with everything that has been going on, I too decided that this is all too much. The best we can do to is to use our voice and speak up for our suffering neighbors at these trying times. But anyway, I hope you’re safe and well!
