THE TRIUMPH OF… WHATEVER

September 4, 2008

The Supreme Court upholds Romulo Neri on executive privilege.

When reasoning borders on idiocy, it is better to look elsewhere for explanation.  Reason illuminates, clarifies,  educates– not provoke laughter.  That’s the job of comedians.

So, here.

Romulo Neri thinks he is a good man.  He also believes that telling a lie is bad.

He knows something about President GMA on a multi-billion dollar deal.  The senators of the republic want him to tell what he knows about GMA on this.

He won’t tell the truth because it will hurt GMA.  But neither will he tell a lie because it is such a bad thing to do for a good man like him. There must be a way not to tell the truth and not to tell a lie at the same time.

There is only one way– do not talk.  But somebody must uphold that he must not talk.

Who would that be?  The Supreme Court, but of course!

On what grounds? Aha, executive privilege!

But what executive privilege are we talking about here?  Forget about that; it’s a numbers game, moron.

And so it comes to pass that Romulo Neri neither tells a lie nor tells the truth.  His boss is saved and so is his soul.  The Supreme Court is  to take the burden to extricate him from his fix.

The result: a landmark decision that draws a huge question mark on the profession of law and the sanity of some people we think are repositories of wisdom and intellect.

From now on, ladies and gentlemen, here lies a new guidepost of good governance for the present and future governments to follow, courtesy of a good man named Romulo Neri.

Now, excuse me a moment while I savor my amusement.

Mr. Romulo Neri, you should have just lied if you wanted to spare your boss.  It would have been so much simpler and so much more uncomplicated.  By saving your soul from telling a lie, by sparing yourself of the consequences of your decision to save your boss, you pushed the rest to hell.  You are a bad, bad man, Mr. Neri.

    Our foreign-educated-ivy-league Philippine Supreme Court justices are extremely Filipino.

    Supreme Court Justices clowns ruled “…so as not to imperil the National Security, Diplomatic and Economic relations … ”

    That means, it’s a go for President of the Philippines to be bribed by foreign government owned corporation because it’s not going to be invistigated to protect our national security, diplomatic and economic relations.

    Lav ya Filipinas …. Lav ya … you are really worth dying for.

    Lav ya WE ARE DOOOOMED!!!! DOOOOMED LIKE D-O-O-M-E-D.

    We could have gotten GMA if the foreing-educated senate clowns didn’t bungled the invistigation. We could have gotten GMA if the pekeng-periodistas educated us on the right way of invistigative process.

    It’s better for rookie cops in America to invistigate than our extremely Filipino Senate clowns. Rookie cops in America wouldn’t even tell you the name of the victim, how the victim died, the weapons of crime so as not to COMPROMISE the invistigation and telegraph to the perpetrator what they found out.

    Both the Senate clowns and coin-operated periodistas are sooooo Filipino …

    When I say Filipino it means extra-dumb, extra-stupid, extra-gung-gung, extra-bulol …. I’D RATHER BE CALLED STUPID THAN BE CALLED FILIPINO …. I NEED PLASTIC SURGERY SO AS NOT TO LOOK LIKE A FILIPINO

    Do you need to moderate my comment? Tone it down?

    I was posting the truth. “The truth do not set us free but a good lawyer does”

    Approve it, dude!!!! People got to know. People wanted to know the skinny of their decision. People don’t have the time to wade thru legalese, beat-around-the-bushes, ring-a-ring-a-roses ….
