"With Marcos, this nation might regret again" - Atty. Josephus Jimenez


The political landscape is changing so fast and lines between those who will they vote for are being told in public.


As always the Philippine national election is without funfare, administration backed candidates and those from the opposition are at it, but since physical movement is restricted by the pandemic all the battles are being waged online.


Here is a post written by Atty. Josephus Jimenez in the Freeman who describes himself as a Former Labor Undersecretary. Labor Attaché for 7 years. Champion of workers. Admired by HR practitioners. Wherein he states his reason why the Philippines cannot afford another Marcos seating in Malacanang as president

OPINION: With Marcos, this nation might regret again


Ferdinand Marcos Sr. promised in 1965 that this nation shall be great again. And after martial law we did regret instead. If Bongbong Marcos wins, with his billions and with his thousands of trolls, and they can rewrite history by convincing the voters that the martial law years were the golden era in Philippine history, many well-meaning Filipinos, I promise you this, will apply for permanent resident status and ultimately, naturalization in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, or New Zealand. This nation cannot afford another Marcos.


Well, the thousands of victims of martial law have not been given justice, including those whose husbands, brothers, sons, and other relatives disappeared or were tortured and killed. The alleged billions in unexplained Swiss accounts and other foreign deposits have not been recovered by the government. In other words, justice had not been served. The Marcoses were driven out of Malacañang in 1986 by an angry nation, aided, in fact, by the US government, which was already convinced by palpable evidence that Ferdinand Marcos had totally lost the legal right and moral authority to exercise the powers of the presidency after more than 20 years, the longest and the most controversial presidency.


The Marcos presidency was controversial because it exceeded the limits that were set forth in the 1935 Constitution, the only legitimate fundamental law before the 1986 Constitution. He was allowed to stay as president only from 1965 to 1969 for his first term and from 1969 to 1973 for his second term. But in 1972, he called for a Constitutional Convention dominated by his minions, subalterns, and underlings, and manipulated the amendments by shifting to parliamentary and unicameral just to justify the prolongation of his rule. Then it was reverted to the presidency again and bicameral back to where we started. The Constitution was not properly ratified as it was merely by raising of hands or viva voce and not by secret voting.


Bongbong Marcos is the son of the dictator and he cannot claim that the sins of the father should not be deemed the sins of the son because he benefited from all his father's acts and decisions. He inherited the Marcos wealth, including the controversies that becloud them. And he never contradicted his father whom he virtually worshiped and held on a pedestal until now. It was his father who illegally arrested or caused the arrest of Ninoy Aquino, Jose W. Diokno, Lorenzo Tañada, and many other Filipinos, including our own Serge Osmeña who escaped from incarceration, together with Geny Lopez of ABS-CBN and Meralco.


It was Marcos who stifled dissent, caused arrests without a warrant, and detained without any charge much less conviction thousands of Filipinos, and used martial law to destroy the businesses of his political enemies, and closed many TV and radio networks owned by the opposition. If they would call all those dark years as the golden era, and if the people would still believe all those canards, lies, and deceits, then I will join the many Filipinos who shall leave this country and die abroad. I have offered no less than 20 years in public service, helping laborers and OFWs. But if Bongbong wins, I shall abandon all in this country and start zero abroad, together with my family.


This nation does not deserve a pretender to the national leadership. People who love this country should do their very best to help the only true opposition. I do not know about you but as for me and my house, we shall follow a moral, ethical, honest, and competent leader. I will stake everything to avoid a situation where this nation will regret again. Pink is the only genuine opposition. It is the only honorable option.



Alam mo ba? 


Negosyo ang solusyon sa kahirapan. 


Nasa middle class kung ganito daw kita mo monthly sabi ng NEDA:


P43,828 - P76,669


Ang siste,


If Pamilyado ka na with kids, tapos utilities , daily and unexpected expenses, you can quickly tell why you're probably short every month.

And yet, ang karamihan sabi syo..."Mag ipon ka" or minsan pa nga "Wala ka pang ipon"


Mind you, pandemya pa ngaun!


Aminin mo na...


Pagkulang ang sweldo, there are no "ipon tips" that can help you, kapatid.


Nakagawa ka na din ba ng Budget plan pero d mo naman nasunod?


Well, pag Tigang na, wala ka ng mapipiga, tama?


Instead, you need another source o multiply your income.


Sa karamihan, meron lang two options:


1) Get another job.

2) Start a side business.


Do you want to achieve "RICH" level na according to the government.

A business na pwedeng sa bahay lang while super safe ka at naka online ka lang habang naka pambahay. 


Usap tayo...
