Sure can be annoying, but what she just unleashed are “hard truths” on Filipino psyche and culture
Haven’t read the book yet but intends to do so later after I’m done with the consciousness stuff of Antonio Damasio.
David Graeber is the intellectual soulmate of both Noam Chomsky and Michael Hudson so there’s no doubt the book is a kicker.
Actually a lot of VP Leni supporters are already sharing posts about the Marcos era, for instance those of ex-CJ Meilou Sereno (who is BTW an Evangelical, Filipino evangelicals might be 2/3 DDS and 1/3 Pink based on my own incomplete observations) or others. What isn’t official yet can still become official, just like VP Leni’s programs since today, bolstered by her statement that actual proof of having done stuff counts just as much – of course the proof of her having done all she preaches is all over the place + shared.
Chel Diokno’s YouTube Channel only had 20K followers earlier today and is now over the mandatory 100K that it seems COMELEC will mandate after a viral call to help him. Now there is the call to follow other relevant YouTube accounts as well so they can be confirmed, I am quite confident that the different volunteer groups will get it done quickly also.
“This is a marathon with 5 months to go, so a lot of stuff can still happen.” -– I agree, it’s a marathon session but if I’m on the shoes of those running against BBM I would be very, very careful not to be complacent. Yes, it’s a long way to go but every detail counts. There is no such thing as unimportant on election campaign. Everything that would score points on one’s behalf and deliver a setback on the opponent is important. You have to outdo and outwork your nemesis.
Politics is like sports, strategies matter. Right now, as far as I know, no political ad campaigns from all sides have delivered a powerful message that tend to politically hurt, expose as fraud, or incapacitate an opposing party. However, I expect that to happen in the coming days.
So far, I have never been disappointed by VP Leni. She does seem to know when to attack (meaning when ready) and when not to.
Prime example of intelligent, critical thinking people with limited resources
Considering that Miyako is smart and also annoying, having had her scuffle with a lot of Pinks and Reds equally on Twitter, VP Leni reading and thanking her for a long thread is significant. Thread is worth reading too.
The overall behavior, statements, and actions of Leni Robredo are the reason why people are drawn to energetically and creatively volunteer to make possible her election. The reason why such people as Miyako Izabel – who you characterize as “smart and also annoying,” in reply to – are moved to make statements like, A good leader like you must win–at all costs or whatever means necessary all for the country.
Miyako is a gem. Robredo’s campaign needs a dash of Miyako and LCPL_x to counter widespread lies and fakeries from other camps.
Thank u TLR for fairly, quickly and effectively dealing with the situation advance cash payday loan Mississippi. Accdg to investigation a manager in charge of the HQ had notions of “vip’ism” not consonant with VP Leni’ s principles of inclusiveness. After many complains the person was replaced. #LetLeniLead
The volunteer HQ incident is now also resolved after barely a week. This is the agility of VP Leni’s organization that I talked about, again I am not disappointed and in fact the quick response was amazing.
