All of us at some point in our lives have come across a law that makes us stop and wonder how it ever got passed. I’ve already forgiven Lina for his pro-squatting bill, the Lina law (renamed by Mon Tulfo as the “stupid Lina law”), poor Joey was just trying to win the hearts and minds of his poor Laguna constituents, and he did, salvaging his falling political career by becoming the provincial Governor.
Just recently, some women in congress pass a law banning pornographic cartoon, also known as hentai, “Adults either by purchasing, viewing or producing them, should be subjected to the most severe punishments,” Wow! case closed, props to our lawmakers. Wait, how can you ban those when you can’t even stop Porn (the real ones not the cartoons!) being peddled in the markets and DVDhan (na parang kabute na kung saan-saan nagsusulputan)? Not to mention internet? But I’m sure these bills would look good in your resumes.
All Laws are stupid, But Some Laws are stupider than others, say funny man Dave Letterman. But this one, from Senator Gordon tops the list. Stupider than the two laws I mentioned above.
Another stupid bill from a Senator, wasting more time on stupidity. Thank you Mr. Dick Gordon
It’s clear we’re talking about a really stupid law serving no purpose whatsoever. Gordon says that Muslim leaders; Lapu-Lapu, Sikatuna, Humabon fought for our country, fought for freedom and they, with the whole of today’s Filipino-Muslims must be represented in our national flag. Don’t drag them to your cause Sir, when these men fought against the invaders they had no idea what Filipinas stands for, their brave resistance was for tribal survival, they were not Nationalist like what you want people to accept, because they had no notion of what a nation is. While the men and women, the generation that made our flag, ang bandilang bababuyin mo kasama ng mga kaibigan mong politico, knew what the symbols represented, the symbols are there for a reason. These revolutionaries would turn in their graves if they knew what has happened here.
What’s next? more rays to represent all the ethnic groups of this country?
If you respect Filipino history, judging on what you’ve been saying looks like you don’t, leave our history alone and go back to your fatherland.
Wala na bang ibang isyung nasyonal na pwedeng bigyan ng makatuturang batas? O talagang masyado nang madaming batas na kung anu-ano na lang ang naiisip ng mga naiinip na mambabatas na ito?
Well, looking at the bright side at least flag makers would have jobs seaming and printing this new flag with nine rays!
