The opposition is setting a bad example by putting all the blame on the Ducat hostage taking on the government. The ooposition maliciously insinuated that the administration of PGMA has done nothing to alleviate poverty, thereby encouraging people like Ducat to go on the edge. But in reality, is this really the government's fault? Should a single administration be solely blamed on the sins of past adminsitrations? The problem of education has been prevalent since the time of Marcos. From Marcos, the plight of education continued to slide. But i find it funny that former education secretary and turncoat Florencio Abad should blame the government of PGMA. It says quite clearly that during his term as DECS Secretary, he has done nothing to help improve quality of education in the country, so he should also be blamed. Erap should also be blamed for not addressing this problem, and so does Ramos and Cory. If the past administrations and former DECS officials did their jobs during their terms of office, then the PGMA administration shouldn't even be having this type of problem. How ignorant can we be to point the finger on only one person or administration and not look back on the sins of the past officials? What kind of people have we become, to actually believe that this is solely Gloria's fault and no one elses? Abad should also answer for this crisis. What has he done during his term as DECS Secretary to exempt him from blame? Can he really be holier-than-thou? Or in this case, should other past officials be equally exonorated from blame? And yet we see Balot (JV Estrada) and his cohorts happily calling a press conference and putting the blame on the administration and even PRAISING Ducat for his guts! Now I know the shit has really hit the fan! Ducat's a hero for holding kids hostage? No wonder foreign investors are pulling out of this God-forsdaken nation! With this kind of mentality, who wouldn't? And yet, the accumulated faults of these past officials bear heavy on the present administration -- and yet the opposition expects it to be addressed at the flick of a wrist? Are we really that stupid, or have we swallowed the media cock-and-bull story for so long that we actually believe all the crap they spew out of their foul mouths? Look at ABS-CBN! ANC's reportage is not only unbalanced but downright biased! Stories regarding the administration get only about 5 to 10 seconds of clips, while opposition remarks against the government were played in its entirety! Were is the supposed Balanced programming and other such fantiasies that this oligarch-run outfit so arrogantly projects? They balme the police for being lax in handling the hostage taking, yet the media themselves showed laxity by milling just three steps away from the bus! It's a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black. And here comes Ted Failon strutting around like he's the hero of the hostage taking! The king of gab and hot air himself! Come on people ! We're being made to eat shit and we're eating it like its a f----ng fillet mignon! Wake up and smell the coffee.
