I rate the performance of the current administration as Satisfactory. I would have rated it Very Satisfactory if criminal charges against all the plunderers of the previous administration, most importantly Gloria Macapal Arroyo, were already filed and there are strong prosecutorial evidences to finally made those thieves pay for their crimes against the Filipino people. I dont think we can move forward as a nation if we keep on sweeping under the rug all the dirt of the past and expect the future to be better. How can you make the boat sail if you wont fix the holes? Just like what is happening right now, when we say Gloria Arroyo's prosecution is not important, how can you sleep at night knowing that these people pocketed billions and billions of our money that could have been used to make this nation progress? Havent you heard what is the reason why South Korea became developed instead of remaining stagnant like us? I give you a clue: South Korea used to be like us, until one day they decided they have enough and send all of their corrupt politicians to jail. Claims that the current administration have no blueprint is not true at all. They are already available online for everybody who bothers to look, but the thing is they are boring, verbose and all have positive outlook in it so the media thinks they wont sell and in some degree they were right as many people tend to read only news that are scandalous and shocking. So what we read in the news instead are words of politicians that are opposed to the current administration, making their own insinuations while failing to point that they have done nothing beneficial at all to make situations in the country better.

I do agree that wrong doer must be punished. But I think the way that this administration is taking in order to go after mrs. arroyo is wrong. They are considering the former governor of ARMM as a witness against gloria a state witness. Whats the catch? It is not right to have a compromise with regards to principles. By doing this the Aquino administration is showing that they are really not out for justice but they are doing this as revenge against gloria. It's no longer work, it's personal. Sad! so sad...

I dont see any reason why Aquino will be launching any personal revenge against Gloria Arroyo. Zaldy Ampatuan as a state witness against Arroyo is not yet confirmed. In fact, it may never be pursued at all from what I heard since the prosecution team is actually looking for other evidences. Zaldy Ampatuan is like a trojan horse and is unreliable at best so I am pretty sure PNoy wont seriously consider him as a witness. But if he can produce material evidences then even if he does not testify those are enough to pin down Gloria Arroyo.

I am no supporter of gloria and noynoy. but these 2 have been throwing stones at each other which is not good for the country. I think noy still feels bad about what gloria did before regarding the freed soldiers who were jailed allegedly for the murder of ninoy. and gloria on the other hand took it against former president cory when she asked her to step down. politics only in the Philippines.

I think, I'm not totally happy. I'm half empty and sad. I think I have to exert more effort to fix my life. :)

Right now, I think its a no for me simply because there are still corrupt people hiding on the current administration and people are still suffering from poverty and unemployment just like the previous administration.

Zenki. To be honest, no... I guess it has something to do with my preference in last year's election such that i just could not let it go. There are many here in Mylot though who are Pro-Pnoy. I voted for Gordon as I felt that the country needed drastic change. I didnt expect much from this administration either because i dont find his CV impressive at all. I know that it is just one year and things may turn out better as it goes on. Well, lets just hope so despite despite.
