SONA 2008

State of the Nation Address (SONA 2008), President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo delivering her 8th State of the Nation Address at the Batasan Pambansa complex this afternoon. Photo taken from our living room :)

"As your President, I care too much about this nation to let anyone stand in the way of our people’s wellbeing. Hindi ko papayagang humadlang ang sinuman sa pag-unlad at pagsagana ng taong bayan. I will let no one – and no one’s political plans –threaten our nation’s survival." Read the full SONA speech here.

Argh i want to barf!!! So what do you think about the SONA?

I was reading the speech half way thru when I got sick to my stomach and started vomiting. Its not that I ate something that made me sick. I guess I was just disgusted by the speech. The way I understood this is, earnings from VAT helped a lot of people and it financed programs to help the poor. I think I just mis understood it because my head was spining from the lies. Yung mahirap sa Pinas sa nakita ko lalong humihirap. Dont be surprised if you see a spike in criminal activities like robbery and kidnap for ransom dahil sa hirap nang buhay. There will also be a spike in prostitution crimes dahil sa hirap nang buhay and ofcourse ang gobyerno tuloy pa rin ang kurakot instead tumulong.

Missed it—I had two meetings this afternoon. Thanks for the link, though. I'll go and read it first. I don't have much hope for it though, if the part you quoted is any indication of what her speech was like. :(

So that's what SONA means! Ugh. Filipinos and their abbreviations. My dad said it meant "Zone" as in "Zona" LOL. TFC needs to clarify certain things with their Filipino viewers who don't live in the Philippines.
