SC Upholds Martial Law in Mindanao

Now that SC upholds Martial Law in Mindanao, I wonder what will be Sen. Antonio Trillanes reaction on it. It is as if saying that the Martial Law in Mindanao is rightful.

I've been in Mindanao while Martial Law is being implemented. I can see that security has been tightened and it indeed gave some result of capturing the patriarch so as the matriarch of the Maute clan. It's not so bad.

However, the question of "how long" should there be a Martial Law in Mindanao is still in question. Will it not result to what Martial Law was during the time of the Marcoses? Is Martial Law really good for the country?

What do you think?

The Filipino Today By Alex Lacson

I just want to share this forwarded message to you guys written by Atty. Alex Lacson. And I do hope that in the midst of hard times like this, we will still find ourselves dignified in many things.

Many Filipinos are dismayed and our honor has been compromised. Yes, we are on our knees right now. The only thing that we can do is to humble ourselves, call on God, follow his words, and let God do the rest.

Should Pnoy Be Blamed From the Hostage Drama?

You can see it in the news, you can see it in the forums, you can read it in the newspapers, and even in social networking sites. People are criticizing President Noynoy Aquino to what happened during the hostage drama crisis.

People hated him of not doing his job, of being in the Emerald restaurant, and even of smiling in the camera in an interview.

People even say that “he is only good of blaming others.”

ABS-CBN Warned Other Networks Against Willie

ABS-CBN wrote a letter of warning to Channel 7 and Channel 5 not to engage with Willie Revillame a contract, insisting that Willie's contract with ABS-CBN is still binding. Giving Willie a contract will result to legal actions of ABS-CBN.

A report said from ABS-CBN News:

“Nag-iba ang complexion ng case. May threat of a law suit already. So, sabi ni Willie, ‘Sino naman ang channel na makikipag-kontrata sa akin na alam nilang merong asuntong aabutin...’ Sa katapusan ng usapan na ito, malalaman kung may karapatan si Willie o ABS ang may karapatan na ipitin si Willie,” the lawyer said.

Willie seems to be bitter of what ABS-CBN did with his show which really did much. As a fan of Wowowie, I would say that Wowowie has really touched the heart of the people.

However, the more I read about Willie's actions and unacceptance of the disciplinary measures imposed by ABS-CBN, this just show that Willie's popularity has already gotten into his head and is rooting well.

Without judging Willie's personality, people can really see this in his press conference, statements and interviews. In fact, try to check the social network and the net about him and let's see how many comments that are against him and those that are for him.

This will simply tell that the general public have lost their confidence on Willie. Even in the post made earlier made here in Filipino Opinion, there are more people who wants Willie out of Wowowie than those who wants him to stay.

But why in the world ABS-CBN imposed this on Willie?

Here are the following things that I see why ABS-CBN implemented some sanctions on Willie:

1.Willie has been known to make public statements live even against the will of ABS-CBN which placed them (in some cases) under sanctions by MTRCB.
2.Such public statements did not happen just twice. It happened several times already.
3.Willie has clearly threatened his employer ABS-CBN first which is the cause of all these chaos in this issue.
4.Willie despite of some resolutions have the guts of demanding the following things to the company where it show Willie's unreadiness for genuine commitment for ABS-CBN:
Payment of talent fee during the period of the suspension of the talent agreement;
Return of DJ Coki and Ana Feliciano to Wowowee;
Change of program from Wowowee to Wowowin;
Inclusion of Pinoy Big Brother winner Melai as host of the show;
Special ID cards for staff of Wowowee;
Special vehicle access privilege for the TV host in restricted areas within the ABS-CBN compound.
5.Willie lost a significant amount of public trust that can be clearly seen in social networking sites like twitter facebook and blogs.


ABS-CBN have lost their trust on Willie Revillame concerning his professionalism. However, ABS-CBN seems to be trying its best to give him another chance and to fulfill its contract with him, but this time with all those precautionary measures.

Furthermore, the network is at the same time protecting its interest that Willie won't do any further damages to the company.

This has been my first time to see an employee demanding huge things from his employer.

Willie on the other hand is trying his best to free himself from his contract with ABS-CBN. Seems like Willie will never be returning again from the company who gave him a name. So much conflict and pain have been incurred from both sides.

Major Major Social Network Phenomenon

Another phenomenon emerged with the social networking sites, we call it the “Major Major Phenomenon.

One article said:

The show was without any major gaffes, except for Miss Philippines' answer when asked what her biggest mistake in life was and how she fixed it.

It's being used now as a joke in social networking sites and text messages. While many people are already making fun out of it, some says its the main thing that caused Ms. Raj to drop to 4th runner up.

Some commented that it's a very easy question like Melanie Marquez in an interview with TV Patrol.
While other beauty queens like Gloria Diaz and Margie Moran sided with Ms.Venus Raj that it was really a difficult question.

Some commented:
“I am also from the Philippines. We were cheering her on and so proud that she made to the top 5. When we heard the question we thought she'd nailed it because it was very appropriate based on what she had went through to get there. However, when we heard her answer, our jaws dropped. I knew that she would end up in 4th after hearing her answer. I preceived her answer to be too cocky. It's one thing to be confident, but one must remain humble. Nobody is perfect. She should have shown she has some weaknesses too, but overcame them. Everybody makes mistakes...this one, unfortunately, is her biggest!What a disappointment. :( “

“I am Filipina. I am not impressed of Venus Raj's answer.
- No one is perfect. And, she can't be a perfect one. She is Boastful ...):”

“Remember the question was about BIG mistakes. She never said she never made a mistake. She said there's nothing MAJOR,MAJOR problem she's done in her life. I'm sure she's done MINOR mistakes in her life but that's not what they ask for. She lived a very peaceful life in a very slow town. They didn't even have electricity. And they even grow their own food.What possible BIG mistake could she have done. Google Maria Venus Raj Wish Ko Lang 1/2 about her life story. She should have said she made MINOR mistakes so it doesn't sound like she never made a mistake ever. At first, I judged her answer too. But read and listen to the question and learn about how she lived her life. Maybe she really hasn't done anything MAJOR,MAJOR mistake in her 22 years of life. It's unbelievable but it's possible. WITH GOD, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. Matthew 27. “

Comments are from zapit.com.

Ms. Raj is not affected with all these, eventhough it might really seem a major major mistake. And still, the Philippines is proud of her. Making it to top five is not really easy.

So stop those major major criticism and enjoy the major major phenomenon.
