The Way of Snakes

As if the country is in the grip of a diabolical force that makes its inhabitants so crazy as to find fault in someone else except themselves.  What could be this force? Is it the second coming Christ, as it were?

Some are so brazen as to accuse President Noynoy Aquino of mental instability, never mind that the guy is superb in managing the affairs of government, with foreign governments and businessmen taking notice and giving it an A rating. Pray tell, is that a sign of mental instability?

You might say that these contrabidas are only a handful, but the thing is, they are in media, and media have their own agenda, their own slant. But they grate just the same, and there’s the rub. Of course, these media people are not divine, a lot of them are unscrupulous. A lot of them are what we call “attack and collect”. Is there anything more vile than selling your soul to the devil?

Beware of snakes—they are everywhere including government. Say, haven’t you noticed that as soon as the Anti Money Laundering Council set sights on the bank accounts of VP Binay, the paid rallies and demonstrations came to a halt? That tells you the quality of men and women in those movements. They are not doing their thing as principled human beings; they are doing it for the money

There is also this neophyte senator, who won and became number one because of President Noynoy’s endorsement—and she becomes a snake, impugning the President’s integrity. Might it be that she tries to compensate her lack of gray matter by being controversial? She it was who machinated the ouster of PNP Chief General Purisima, such that when the Mamasapano Operation (which was Purisima’s baby) was launched, it resulted in many casualties, as it was half-baked, Purisima being only in the sidelines.

And what did this neophyte and devilish senator do? She came up with a half-baked report, again impugning the President. Did it ever occur to her that she is the be-all and end-all of the Mamasapano Debacle? If she did not engage in bamboozling General Purisima, it could have been an unqualified success, and not partly successful as was the case, with the killing of the most wanted terrorist Marwan.

Moral of the story: Beware of snakes—even if you slather them in lotion, still their nature is that of snakes.
