NOYNOY AQUINO MUST QUIT SMOKING!
So my fellow Filipinos, it is very likely that Noynoy Aquino is our new President! This man has obviously survived the many issues thrown against him by his political opponents. The psychological issue and the other not so significant ones have apparently failed. His political opponents were not able to discourage the voting public from electing this man to the highest position in the Philippine government. Obviously, the people want changes and Noynoy to them is the man who could deliver.
Actually I did not vote for Noynoy. Despite my big respect to his parents, I opted to vote for Gibo Teodoro because he is to me the best among the candidates. But unfortunately, the people are not ready to give this administration candidate any chance. The Filipinos hate Gloria Macapagal Arroyo too much so that despite Gibo’s obvious edge over the other candidates he was ignored by the majority of the people.
Noynoy won and surprisingly Joseph “Erap” Estrada, even placed second. I wonder if Ninoy was right when he said “The Filipinos are worth dying for!” I don’t think all Filipinos are worth dying for. How could the people who voted Erap be worth dying for when they don’t even know how to give this country a chance to have a good leader? They still want Erap back into power.
In my opinion, this man who was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for taking more than $85 million in bribes and kickbacks does not deserve any single vote from the people of the Philippines. He should rather just retire and enjoy his newfound freedom with his various wives, children and grandchildren. He should be thankful to Gloria Macapagal Arroyo for this woman find the heart to release him from prison. Whatever her motive for doing so, Joseph Estrada still owes GMA his freedom.
Now going back to Noynoy, this man is currently faced with another issue. This time, the issue is not fabricated. This is about his smoking habit which he is not actually hiding. Noynoy just admitted he could not quit smoking. Addicted? Certainly! He is addicted to nicotine just as the countless people all over the world. Well this is a common thing to many people actually but the fact that he is now the incoming President made the big difference.
The Department of Health is serious in its campaign against smoking and I can’t imagine how Noynoy would still look respectable if he would not quit smoking and hence would keep violating the anti-smoking campaign of one of the departments of a government he himself is leading. A good leader should serve by example and his examples must be good.
Now this is my final statement, I think Kris and her other sisters should join hands in convincing Noynoy to give up smoking. If Kris and her sisters gave their all to campaign for ‘Noy, and obviously they succeed, they should now give the people a good reason to look up on this man they elected to the Presidency.
Ladies, go and convince your only brother to quit smoking. It is not only for the sake of being a good leader but for his own good as well. If a President could not even rule himself well how could he ever rule the land well? Look at former President Erap? Now tell me, should I say further more?
