(Topic: Congress Wants Gloria Arroyo on House Arrest, Seriously?)

Those Congressmen who signed the petition to put Arroyo under house arrest should all be JAILED along with Gloria Arroyo for aiding & abetting a Plunderer. This incident is another argument why Congress should be abolished or better yet scrap Democracy altogether. The underlying excuse for their petition is the pitiable physical condition of Arroyo. How about the pitiable poverty of the Filipinos caused by the unbridled graft & corruption in Arroyo's time? What kind of Justice is this? A non-bailable case being given house arrests. That is better than being granted bail.

This woman belongs to the rotten hybrid of corrupt government officials if you will look at the different scandals she was involved. Imprison her forever to serve as a lesson to the next generation of this society. Filipinos must stop being resilient rather break the bones of those who will rob the national coffer.

Why in hell you're showing this devil short crooked sick lady in the forum again? This is sickening! You should have instead somebody tightening this foam around her neck to suffocate or remove so her head full off. Question about house arrest, I thinks it's okay so the govt. won't waste further expense for her hospital stay. However, make sure to put barb wires around her house so she could stay there until she dies. Well, it's sounds like the rotten rat is about to come out.

Instead of giving her unjustified & unearned privileges why don't these Congressmen put her on the dock and ask her about the secret deals she made with China allowing the latter to explore the PHL natural resources? I am also wondering why there is no contrary opinion, much less an outcry from the people about this suggestion of the politicians.

Mar Roxas....really? ya sure blame Arroyo, Marcos but u got to blame Estrada, Cojuanco and Aquino also....Philippines never stood a chance after EDSA because papalit pala puro kurakot din...may land reform nga wag lang kasama ang Hacienda Luisita..tuwid na landas daw pero ayaw kalabanin ang kampo ni Estrada, Binay at Lacson. yang mga family ng old politics dahil dala ang apelyido boto na kayo...di na kayo nadala...tapos artista...si Dionisia na lang iboto ninyo baka may galang pa tayong makuha sa international community

Gloria Arroyo should not be referred to as President because she was never really elected by the Filipino voters. She was just an interloper who crawled into the Palace with the connivance of the Generals & the SC Justices. Thereafter she lost the elections to FPJ whom she cheated by manipulating the election results. This woman is nothing but a common thief along with her husband & children. For what she has done to the country she should be made to suffer for the rest of her days.

Re: Sen. Grace Poe...If she is chosen to be a candidate for President, it is up to the Filipino people to compare her with the leading contender One name VP Binay..With multiple cases of graft / plunder pending in the Court of Appeals, Sandiganbayan and Ombudsman. Whose wife, prosepective First Lady is also facing a Plunder case in the Sandiganbayan for overpricing the price of hospital beds in the Ospital ng Makati.

Have your read? Lawyers reportedly are zeroing in on Grace Poe's use of her U.S. Passport as late as 2009. And to add more meat to the issue it was indicated that these lawyers were supposedly "Deans" of Law Schools. They were trying to say that if Poe used her US Passport as late as 2009 how can she claim Residency if she runs for President in 2016? This is the opening shot of the 2016 campaign which promises to be as contentious and dirty as elections go in the PHL. What the Binay camp is saying is that votes for Grace Poe will just go to waste because she did not meet the requirements for the Presidency.

It is so sad that people here are up in arms against Grace Poe. And why it will take 20 years time to a good Presidential Candidate? I don't think so. By that time, your candidate is a crook like the Binay's, the Estrada's, et al. To me, Grace Poe is qualified to be a Presidential candidate...and she is a good one. Take a look at Abraham Lincoln. He did not go to college and he was a good President of USA back then.

I think there is nothing wrong with having a neophyte as President as long as she/he has confidence in running the country .But from the beginning Sen. Poe seem reluctant to handle the responsibility by herself almost always mentioning Sen. Escudero to be as her preferred running-mate (or is it close-in adviser) if she eventually becomes president. We need a strong and tested and confident public official who is now ready from day one to face the challenges facing the country like the China and Muslim problem. Forget about Binay his candidacy is now a dying ember. My choice is Roxas, Cayetano or Recto.

Guys, why are we even talking about Grace Poe? Let's stop scrutinizing her to the nth degree lest she loses her strength to beat Binay. For that matter let's stop vetting all the other wannabes (except Joseph Estrada) for the same reason. Let's focus on the Binay scams & plunders. Filipinos should find a way to make this subject stick in the minds of the voters. And one of the ways to do that is by talking about it constantly. By the way, whatever happened to that TRO issued by the CA on JunJun Binay's plunder case? When will the SC issue a ruling on that? Will that end up like the Erap disqualification case? How disgraceful this Judiciary is. It does not interpret the Law, it damages it.

Just being related to a well known political leader and a well known actor doesn't necessarily means Mar Roxas and Poe will lead the
Filipino to a better future. its also a known fact that past politician came from a well known school ...duhhhh yung tawagin kang tanga (dahil lack of education ) siguro its better kesa tawagin kang matalino ehh kabobohan naman ang resulta. heres my opinion Mar Roxas is exactly what the Philippines doesn't need, old family politics never works in Philippines. Actor/actress ...do I need to explain (Estrada). I'm just waiting for the voters to decide then I could easily tell if Philippines is doomed or better for the next 6 yrs..goodluck

Coming from [someone] this statement - "But a woman is proven that can't handle a country like PH. No to Poe please. " AMAZINGLY so misogynistic! Perhaps that is why Catholic priest are suppose to be celibate?

By saying that she will not pardon Binay in case she gets elected & Binay is convicted, Grace Poe scored BIG points in her quest for the Presidency. Also being the daughter of FPJ, the man Gloria Arroyo shamelessly cheated, we can assume that she would pursue the plunder cases against Arroyo and continue to detain her in a hospital instead of her house. Those factors alone should give Grace Poe a boost in her campaign. She is going in as an outsider who has nothing to do with the Old Boys Club.

No one can beat Filipino child-like anticipation and excessive guessing as to which would-be candidate will be best fit and why, when it comes to electioneering. People are quick to take sides even without being fully aware of the nation's real needs including the important issues at hand to be resolved by the incoming administration. Opposing quarters are grossly armed and ready to fight tooth and nail with mudslinging, character assassination, attack and counter attack. No wonder our election years are the most dangerous times in the country wherein some politicians resort to private assassins to get rid of their competitions and other detractors. Filipinos have to slow down and educate themselves well in the democratic process. The next election is crucial and calls for a real statesman to deal with the growing unrest in that part of the world.

Right now, the country needs a tough and a good President. Who will not believe in BS. Who will not appease nor being bullied by China. The one who can stand and die for it. Not these politicians like Binay, Estrada, and Roxas.

Someone said - "We'd better reconsider the argument that Poe lacks the experience. ....of the past presidents had political experience before becoming president. Cory was a mere housewife. Erap was an actor before becoming mayor and later president. Magsaysay had no political experience....... Ramos had only military experience and training,.... everything started from nothing. PNL' argument and others are weak." Perhaps that is why RP lost its stature as No. 2 Asian country before and other overtook us (i.e. Thailand, Malaysia etc.)?

[Someone] said, "So what is wrong with having a liberal sentiment? And why is it based "on cowardice and the denial of reality?" My reply: Because the liberalism you espouse teaches people to take pride on mendicancy and dependency in the name of entitlement versus responsibility and self-reliance.

[Someone] said, "Isn't it a reality that if a hot war between China and USA occur-- Filipinos will suffer because the country is going to be a battlefield? Is it "cowardice" or just a pragmatic statement?" My reply: Life is not free of suffering especially the one who chose to remain weak and exploit its selfish advantages. The fact of the matter is the evil strong will always exploit the foolish weak.

Kudos to the rich Filipino patriot Mel Velarde for sacrificing his own money to prove to the Chinese that their claim is erroneous and laughable. The map also shows that the Northern part of Borneo (Sabah) belongs to the Philippines as well almost 300 years ago. He hit two birds with one stone. May the good Lord bless Mel Velarde and his family.

With all the illegal military constructions of China on PHL land, you would think the PHL leadership would forget their political differences & close ranks on this issue. Well, what do you know? Thirteen PHL Senators signed a Resolution to declare EDCA invalid without the Senate's approval! As if these 13 Senators have nothing better to do. With "Leaders" like these how could you expect the average Filipino to even be interested in the China intrusions issue? And with "Leaders" like these who needs enemies? And how can you expect the USA to assist the PHL in its claim against China, much less fight its battle? Something is terribly wrong with the present system. Evidently all the wrong people with all the wrong priorities are occupying the wrong offices.

Already the so called Anti-Dynasty Law is being diluted, said a Communist leaning Congressman. If true this Congressman should divulge all he knows. Otherwise he will just sound like a deceptive Communist spreading innuendoes. And if true Filipinos should do something about it. This rotten Congress has a Speaker whose daughter is a Vice-Mayor. The Senate is crawling with all sorts of relationships. So why would these politicians not sabotage this Bill? The solution here is simple - abolish the Legislature. Better yet abolish the ridiculous Democratic form of Govt.

Nominating Mar Roxas as LP standard carrier against Binay will insure Binay winning the presidency. This is big mistake. He lost the vice presidency and he will lose again for the president against this crook (magnanakaw). This is a wrong place  for Binay. This crook who's bigger than lolong should go jail instead. Ombudsman should prepare his case now so he could join his kind like Jinggoy, Bong, and Juan.

Pinoy endorsing Roxas for president is a back door support for Binay. You know, Roxas can't win over Binay. It shows during previous election that Roxas can't win and he is not a favorite over this sick crook. So, if Roxas is now the standard LP's candidate means Philippines will have a corrupt next president. Why forcing your luck if the support of the people is not there? Talking of experience, for me I rather have inexperienced rather and a crooked one. Get your heads out voters!

Pinoys voters, think about this logic. If you feel that Pinoy is not supporting Binay, you better think twice or more. If you're indorsing candidate who can't win against Binay that means he is supporting in any means shape or form for Binay. And for Erice and Drillon, shoving Roxas in their throat meaning a big plus for the most corrupt politician in Asia. So, this is heads up for Filipino voters, don't be a victim on this back door blind logic by Pinoy. VOTE FOR SOMEONE WHO CAN WIN AGAINST THE MAGNANAKAW.

As a sovereign nation of this world, Philippines has celebrated it's 117th Independence from Spain. I was wondering why your editorial has no write ups with this important celebration highlighting important topics such as unity, one voice, one race and one goal to protect our freedom at all costs. Without Unity among Filipinos themselves any thing that needs to be done is really hard to accomplish. For in unity there is STRENGTH and divided we FALL!

Thank you for your suggestion. - PNL

In the Philippines, wrong-doing in public service is sensationalized to the hilt. White collar crime give rise to their own popularity; often government criminals are given more coverage by the media than the honest hard-working man in the street. Long live graft & corruption!
