We are mentally sick. The higher the position, the higher the mental sickness. Any action that promotes the good spirits and lightheartedness of the general public. This action should promote not only your own individual happiness but also the happiness of all concerned.
Miriam Defensor Santiago is one of the most intelligent people known in the Philippines. Her snarky remarks, witty comebacks, and professional attitude add up to her intelligence. Plus, her humor is indeed captivating.

Not the kind of book I'd buy for myself; good thing this was just given to me by high school classmate.

I would trade my arms for a quarter of her brain. Definitely a must-read!!! Jan 05, Kirei rated it really liked it. This is a case of the-first-book-is-better, but classic Miriam nonetheless. Made me realize that she curses, insults, and hurls and receives death threats against her enemies just like our present president. The only difference is she does so with such panache that we tend to let it pass.

He is the person who knows nothing and thinks he has everything. This graduate will become a successful politician. There was a time when a circus did not consist of trained animal performers and acrobatic shows, but of freaks and monstrosities.
One of them was called "the boneless wonder. People are entitled to change their minds. But when politicians do so, they always explain it in terms of incomprehensible principles. In Philippine politics, I know many men and women who are able to rise above principles. When I listen to the defensive language of those accused of plunder, I marvel that they can make lies sound truthful, plunder respectable, Then people say that politics is the art of the possible, they mean the art of speculation, calculation, intrigue, secret deals, and pragmatic maneuvering.
Members of Congress are eager to participate and be televised during public hearings, which are more like police investigations conducted by a scatterbrained investigator.

Two political candidates were engaged in a heated debate Candidate I: What about the powerful interests that control you? Candidate 2: You leave my wife out of I love this definition from Ambrose Bierce.
A politician is an eel in the fundamental mud, upon which the superstructure of organized society is reared. When he wriggles, he mistakes the agitation of his tail for the trembling of the edifice. As compared with the statesman, he suffers the disadvantage of being alive. To call a Filipino politician a mediocre man is unwanted flattery.

Madalas may ahas. The campaign period has begun. All kinds of characters want to run for public office. We, the 52 million Filipino voters, are bored with their antics. We are aghast at their resumes. Some of them are not even high school graduates. They resort to all kinds of cheap gimmickry, hoping to provide entertainment for free.
They should not be called candidates; they should be called clowns. In the Philippines, politics is dominated Fortunately, we are at the cusp of a new ominous wave of change in the political beach. This wave is called the social media. In the Philippines, nobody knows how to control or manage social media.
Rich clowns used to bribe press and broadcast journalists so that they could gain added illegal advantage over their competitors. But now, the rich clowns are beginning to discover that it is not possible to bribe the leaders, much less, all the netizens in cyberspace.
The ideal UP student always gives the world a shock. I ask each one of you to give the mindless political candidates a shock, by In terms of social network use, the Philippines is ranked among the top countries.
This could be the precursor of the participatory democracy of the future. Facebook is the premier social media service in the world. Twitter is an online YouTube provides a forum for the distribution of video content, particularly eyewitness features of political protests. Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are the so-called big three social media services. These services enable large numbers of people to be easily and inexpensively contacted via a variety of services.
Social media lowers traditional socio- economic The power of the rich politicians becomes more porous and the political warlords have less control. It has been said that text messaging, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and the Internet have given rise to a reservoir of political energy.
Digital technologies enforce the formation and activities of civil society groups: The ideal UP student is not interesting per se. What is interesting is what the ideal student does with his life after graduation from UP. As a rule, any UP graduate will always be characterized by academic excellence and by the courage to take social justice to the next level.
If you are to serve your nation, I am here to testify that it will be a rough, contentious, and spirit-crushing journey.
But as a true UP graduate, I insist that I This role is to stand as one of gazillion bricks in the cathedral of governance. No one will remember me if I suddenly drop dead tomorrow. But generations after you and me, would be able to put behind them the culture of corruption, and build a new shining nation with leaders who are neither dazzled by the material world, nor confused about their purpose in life. Hence, I have risen from my sickbed to Use social media during this three-month campaign period to ensure that our people shall be led to choose deserving national leaders.
Allow me to make some recommendations on how to weaponize social media against the corrupt, the clueless, and the clowns. I am paraphrasing from an article in the Net issued by Craft Media Digital and written by Brian Donahue. Weaponize social media during the campaign by providing content that not only informs, but also entertains and motivates. You need to develop skills in creative design, emotionally riveting visuals, and content that inspires action.
We can not weaponize by simply issuing a statement, a newsletter, or a Facebook post. We need to enlist the work of more graphic designers, creative writers, videographers, Weaponize social media during the campaign by embracing targeted messaging strategies. You cannot rely on single-issue national messaging.
You have to send custom messages to specific audiences online. Hook up with math students in the Diliman campus. Ask our math scholars to build algorithms for matching data. This For example, refer to Facebook OpenGraph. Weaponize social media during the political campaign by delivering content so engaging that individual netizens will be motivated to share it.
I see in the current campaign that the most egregious error of the candidates is that they treat social media as if it were TV or radio, where they simply transfer The strength of the web is information sharing among social netizens. Weaponize social media in the political campaign by accepting that the future of political warfare will take place online. Social media should be used as a showcase for intangible movement or energy, and a medium of information to motivate people to vote for or against a particular candidate.
Conclusion I share one unbreakable linkage with you. At one time I was your age and like all UP students, I wanted Maybe I have. But the world also changed me. Now I am old enough to have seen the world and have all my illusions shattered. Am I disillusioned? No, because as the poet said: Though much is taken, much abides; and though We are not now that strength which in old days Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
Barring public demand, any person who pursues the presidency out of personal ambition must be suffering from a basic genetic defect. In a magazine interview. I do not subscribe to the school of thought that I am leading the presidential polls because of my beautiful leg After topping most presidential surveys in First you say that I have a brilliant resume and an But then you propose that I should not run for president, but only for vice- president.
Clearly, your conclusion does not follow your own premise. And you justify this illogic by claiming that I would be cheated by my rivals as a presidential candidate, so I should settle for becoming a vice-presidential candidate instead. Sir, if the rest of humankind had adopted your line of thinking, we would never have Everest, or learned to fly. For in all these daring enterprises, people who should have known better said it could not be done.

How to tell if a politician is telling the truth: Whenever he looks at you straight in the eye, he might be telling the truth.
