Smack in the Middle of EDSA

You know very well that I don’t do serious posts, but this is an inappropriate time for humor. Your daily dose of retard will resume when the retardness crisis is over.

I woke up this morning to the sound of my phone ringing. It was my girlfriend, sounding very worried.

“Ade,” she said, “please take care. There’s a coup attempt going on.”

As my girlfriend stays in a dorm along school, I advised her to go home to Tarlac right away.

I went to work as usual (I go to work along Ortigas), and I could see the beginnings of a rally going on. Oh well, when you work along EDSA, you have to be used to the endless rallies that just come out of nowhere.

But nothing prepared me for what happened next.

Since I don’t have the patience and time to do a liveblog about the crisis/coup, I will direct you to an excellent liveblog by La Vida Lawyer.

Ok. It’s chaotic outside, I’m smack in the middle of EDSA, and I don’t know how I’ll get home.

I’m just glad my girlfriend is safe at home.

  1. Wala pong kinalaman ang pagtaas ng dolyar sa nakaraang tatlong buwan sa totoong kondisyon ng ating ekonomiya.

    Tumaas lamang ang dolyar noon dahil marami ang nag-remit.

    Ang totoong batayan ng kondisyon ng ekonomiya ay ang kalagayan ng mga mamamayan.

    Kapag wala nang tao sa lansangan, wala nang nagdidildil ng asin at wala nang nasisiraan ng ulo't namamatay dahil sa gutom, saka lang natin masasabing maganda na ang ekonomiya. At saka lang magkakaroon ng karapatan si Arroyo na magsabing tumaas ang ekonomiya natin dulot ng kaniyang pamumuno.

    Bow.

    What's killing our country are those bunch of Pseudonationalists. Kumuha kasi nalang sila ng pala at pumunta ng Leyte at maghukay ng mga nawawala pang bangkay.

    naku hai! kahit kelan talaga wala ng pagbabago sa bansa natin. kahit sinong presidente pang ilagay di pa rin nakukuntento ang mga lintek na matatalinong ewan na mga pulitikong yan. yang pag ra-rally nila kundi na lang sana magtrabaho para sa ikabubuti ng kanilang pamilya sabagay may bayad nga naman ang sasama sa rally…easy money na, may meryenda pa! bwisit! sana tataas ang dolyar hahaha! (sama ko!)

    ade said : hay naku malaine. labo mo. 😛

    ako said: hindi naman ah! hehehe….sayang talaga kung kelan bumaba na ang dolyar, dahil sa mga pangyayari , tumataas na naman…which is Lovely! hahaha!

  5. A coup d'etat is not going to solve anything. Well, it may temporarily help the activists by finishing Arroyo's regime faster but it's not the solution. It must be for the people. When we say a succesful coup d'etat by the military, it doesn't mean any TCG or democracy, it only means the military taking over the governance. Those who committed the coup d'etat will be the one leading, probably. Just a theory.

    If the people want change, if the common people – you, me, those who walk along EDSA everyday, drivers, students, vendors – want a change for the good, it must be the common people who should act.

    Oo, People Power pa rin.

    Hihi. ^-^V

    Activist instinct acting here.

  6. Awwww…. ang-sweet nyo naman hehehe. Sana nga naman at matapos na ito at matanggal na ang mga kulangot sa pader.

  11. Sira sa sched yang coup. And it's stupid. It just made the situation worst, IMHO. We were even delayed and a client meeting yesterday because it.

    I read the news, it’s quite shocking..

    I prefer not to comment much on other country’s politic, so please take car and my best wishes for you all.

  13. those rallies are just PR of those anti and pro govt groups. instead of just working and being productive, some people choose to add to the never-ending distress that this country is goes through. it's just the same every year. people are just soooo tired.

  14. naku hai! kahit kelan talaga wala ng pagbabago sa bansa natin. kahit sinong presidente pang ilagay di pa rin nakukuntento ang mga lintek na matatalinong ewan na mga pulitikong yan. yang pag ra-rally nila kundi na lang sana magtrabaho para sa ikabubuti ng kanilang pamilya sabagay may bayad nga naman ang sasama sa rally…easy money na, may meryenda pa! bwisit! sana tataas ang dolyar hahaha! (sama ko!)

  15. nakakatakot nga eh. sigh.

  16. This country is so divided we don't know when we're gonna achieve a lasting peace, stability and progress. I only hope for the best.

  17. "hope you don’t persecute me for my political beliefs, but I am neither pro or anti GMA. I am just disappointed at how our people (on both sides of the political fence) is wasting another good opportunity for economic revival."

    true, true. both sides should just work together in harmony. the problem is everybody has their own agenda. greedy mother fathers! hehe

    tama ka dyan!!!

    [Comment ID #209 Will Be Quoted Here]

    good points man, will read your entry.

    [Comment ID #210 Will Be Quoted Here]

    hmm… will wait for your next liveblog!

    hope you don't persecute me for my political beliefs, but I am neither pro or anti GMA. I am just disappointed at how our people (on both sides of the political fence) is wasting another good opportunity for economic revival.

  19. I think our country is getting worsed and worsed. Politicians obviously don't know how to run the government. Take a look at what happened to Leyte. 10 years ago there was a "huge Illegal logging". Now the poor people suffered the effects. Can you the blame the people there? Of course not! It was the result of "POOR GOVERNANCE" 10 years ago… until now!

    And on that note, why not give people a voice, I'm in favor of "Coup". In the sense that, in our country, the highest form of the law is the people. "It is for the people, by the people, and of the people".

    Interesting and good post! I'll check for that news…Peace.

  20. Yes, I agree. Having a gf does make you think twice before joining a protest.

    I was at school the whole day so I wasn't able to live blog it but oh well, there's always next time. 😉

  21. ako sa tv ko lang nakita pero nakakadismaya ang makikita mo. nakakalungkot. walang mangyayari sa bansa natin kung puro ganito mangyayari, puro bangayan at turuan, silipan ng butas, etc. kahit sino pa ang nasa pwesto, kung ganito ang gagawin ng mga ibang tao sa politika, walang pag-asa na umahon tayo sa kahirapan. eto ang point of view ko. i also made a post in my blog about this. one of my readers even made a lengthy comment and some interesting points. 🙂

  22. gusto ko lumabas… at magtanggal ng stress. pero puro nakkastress ang nakikita ko sa tv… hay… demet!
