No Let Up

Despite the growing dismay of many Filipinos over the viciousness of hearings being conducted by the Senate, the senators who have an axe to grind with the former first family have stepped up their attacks with no sign of let up in the horizon.

Ping Lacson is on a warpath and wants another witch hunt conducted, this time focusing on the alleged behest loans of Roberto Ongpin witht the DBP. The only reason Ongpin and his loans ar being investigated is because Ongpin is close to the former First Gentleman.

i can only imagine what lies will be spewed on the senate floor to make Ongpin and his company appear like villains, when the truth of the matter is that Ongpin is the victim in an evil plot to discredit him. So far, the evil plot has taken the life of a young lawyer. How many more lives, i wonder, is the senate, particularly Ping, willing to sacrifice for his vengeance?

Sadly, it seems that the Senate is no longer interested in the truth but simply interested in investigating anything having to do with the former first family. The only good thing to come out of these hearings is that people are becoming more and more disgruntled with the upper house.

These vengeful trio of Senators -- Guingona, Drilon and Lacson) are clearly abusing their powers as legislators, but no one seems to be able to stop them from their grave abuse of powers. We are now at a point where the Senate can be used to vilify and falsely accuse anyone who earns the ire of these so-called "distinguished gentlemen", without the benefit of a fair and just trial -- and the Filipino nation should be fearful of this.
