Blind Justice

In Politics on May 29, 2012 at 12:45 pm

After 44 grueling days of trial and drama,the Senate impeachment court’s final verdict: The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court is found guilty as charged.I won’t go into the technicalities and legalities of the case for I have limited knowledge when it comes to court terminologies. When this case was brought about 5 months ago,many feared that a constitutional crisis looms in the horizon. The three branches of government namely Executive,Legislative and Judiciary are clashing.How can you put the highest law of the land on trial? Brief backgrounder,the Chief Justice has been accused of not declaring his true Statement of Asset,Liabilities and Net worth or SALN,stating that his net worth is roughly P3.4 million pesos in cash and properties. But after thorough investigations,he finally admitted that he has $2.4M and 80.7M pesos in savings,a far cry from the figures that were earlier submitted. It didn’t end there.Oral arguments ensued.Both the prosecution and the defense presented factual evidences and witnesses.And the popular vote was for the acquittal of the chief magistrate.Today,29th of May,marks a historic day for the Philippines.20 out of the 23 senator judges voted for the conviction of the Chief Justice on grounds of public deception and transparency issues. There was one instance and this was pounded upon by the jury as to why they came up with such a resolution.A lowly government employee was convicted for not declaring on her SALN a small market store under her name. This is where the blindfolded lady sets in. “Blind Justice is the theory that law should be viewed objectively with the determination of innocence or guilt made without bias or prejudice. It is the idea behind the motto โ€œEqual Justice Under The Lawโ€ and is symbolized by the blindfolded statue of Lady Justice which is the symbol of the judiciary”.
In justice,there should be no race,gender or status. A victory for equality.


American Idol 2012 Season Finale

In entertainment on May 24, 2012 at 3:26 am

American Idol 2012 is finally over.American Phillip Phillips emerged as the season 11 winner. Kudos to the guy,he gave a fresh,crisp performance. And his charismatic presence on stage garnered him votes from the female viewers. As for 16-yr old Fil-Mex Jessica Sanchez,she was consistent all throughout the season. Give her any type of song,she’ll do justice to it. while Phillips is confined to country music. That duet with THE Jennifer Holliday’s simply mind-blowing. If that show-stopping performance can’t win competitions,I don’t know what else will. Phillip Phillips is a good performer but “no no no no way” can he beat Jessica,vocally speaking.
AND I AM TELLING YOU…Jessica Sanchez should have been the American Idol.

Traumatic six months for this poor guy. These malicious minded people should pay dearly for this. If we have a Mother and Child,why not a Father and Child? This photo clearly shows pure paternal love for his daughters.

Feeling lethargic,literally dragged myself out of bed this morning.First of May or Labor Day holiday here in the Philippines.Unfortunately,it’s “Mayday Mayday!” to the unemployed.From a ho-humm to a humdinger of a day! Thanks to this email notification.

I’m pretty sure my shrieks jolted the whole neighborhood. Turns out that I posted something on his wall,and he liked it.So don’t fret if you still remain unnoticed even after you’ve decided to permanently reside on his FB wall,you’ll have your time. ;-p
To those who don’t recognize Oli (where have you been hibernating,geez!) well,he’s the traveller/host of Lonely Planet Six-Degrees China and Cash Cab Asia,just to name a few.
When I chanced upon a Lonely Planet episode featuring him,got so hooked that I would have gone amuck if anyone dared to snatch the remote control away from me. ๐Ÿ˜€ In my book,he’s the host with the most!. Oli Pettigrew transformed our Lonely Planet into a Lovely Planet and gave it a 360-degree turn. ๐Ÿ™‚ More power and on your next Manila trip,the chicken adobo is on me. ๐Ÿ˜‰
