HISTORIC

13 12 2012

BEFORE DAWN Thursday, the House of Representatives approved on second reading the Reproductive Health Bill. Thank God!

After 14 long years, the Lower House – voting 113 to 104 approved on second reading the Reproductive Health Bill. That was historic! And then Jules Ledesma showed up to vote. That was miraculous!

Members of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines were in full force at the Lower House. But Congress still passed the bill. A historic vote despite the pre-historic presence.

Seated at the gallery was Lipa, Batangas Archbishop Ramon Arguelles who closely monitored the voting. Later, representatives from Batangas province (all 5 of them!) voted AGAINST the RH Bill. The five solons were commended by another anti-RH advocate, alcalde-mayor Vilma Santos.


In defending their votes, a number of congressmen mentioned the Catholic Church, the Apostles’ Creed, Mama Mary, and God Almighty – which prompted God to call and say, “Tigilan n’yo na ang panggagamit sa aking pangalan. Kapag nagnanakaw naman kayo, ‘di n’yo ako naaalala. Okthxbye.”

Sarangani Representative Manny Pacquiao voted against the RH Bill. Pacquiao has now lost three straight.

A congressman was quoted to have said, “If the Reproductive Health Bill was passed in the ‘50s, I’d probably would not be here today.” And his constituents were like, “Sayang!”

In voting ‘no’ to the RH Bill, outgoing marginalized sector representative Mikey Arroyo said, “Hindi ko pwedeng isuko ang aking pagka-Katoliko.” Didn’t you just do that when you married your second cousin?

Iloilo Rep. Augusto Syjuco recited the Apostles’ Creed in defending his vote against the bill. I wonder what prayer he recited when he was charged with plunder.

JinkeePacman Returns
The one, and the only Manny Pacquiao is back. On Wednesday morning, Pacman’s plane landed at round 6, excuse me, around 6.

According to Pacquiao’s assistant trainer, Buboy Fernandez, Manny’s first words upon regaining consciousness after his knock down was, “Boy, nasa’n ka?” To which, Jinkee Pacquio said, “Ah, ganun?! Fine! Hmpf!”

In Ring Magazine’s pound-for-pound ranking, Manny Pacquiao drops to No. 7. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is still No. 1 while Juan Manuel Marquez is at No. 3. The biggest surprise of all was Mommy Dionisia who’s now at No. 6.

From No. 2, Manny Pacquiao has dropped to No. 7 in Ring Magazine’s pound-for-pound ranking. But that was way better than Mon Tulfo who totally dropped out of the list.

Apparently, Canadian pop star Justin Bieber is not a fan of Manny Pacquiao. But I don’t think it’s fair to pillory Justin because of that. You have to understand the kid. In Canada, they only see boxing in hockey arenas.

A congressman has filed a resolution urging the Department of Education to include the inspiring life story of sports icon Manny Pacquiao in the curriculum of grade school pupils. As a sign of gratitude, Pacquiao will file a resolution urging the Commission on Higher Education to include the life story of other congressmen in financial management.

popePope Online
Pope Benedict XVI has finally tweeted. In his first tweet, he addressed his followers as “Friends.” Cool! The next time he uses “Dude,” I’ll be more impressed.

In his sixth tweet, the Pope asked for suggestions on how “to be more prayerful when we are so busy with the demands of work, families and the world.” His followers replied, “BRB, may tatapusin lang.”

Pope Benedict XVI a.k.a. Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger of Germany is now on Twitter. Beware! Rumors say he’s a grammar Nazi.

nikoSalvaged Online
Atenean cager Nico Salva was criticized and lambasted by netizens (mostly Azkal fans) for tweeting that the football match (Suzuki Cup semifinals) on TV last Wednesday night was boring. I have no idea what Salva was talking about. I fell asleep.

The Azkals lost that match against Singapore. And for the Azkaleros, the last thing you wanna read was a tweet like Salva’s. I totally understand them. Nobody understands the pain of losing more than us, Lakers fans.

Friendster
Apparently, gaming website Friendster is bringing back its social networking features. In other news, Nokia is bringing back 3210.

Quote of the Day
“In the dying seconds of my 6th round vs Marquez, a single punch knocked me out. Some thought I was dead. What happened in Vegas strengthened my already firm belief of the sanctity of life.”

Have a great weekend!

Great summary of recent historic triumphs and tragedy.

On current form, if pacquaio fell into a barrel of boobs he would come out sucking his thumb.

Many congressmen gave a masterclass in intellectual stupidity and social ignorance, as epitomised by the belief that it is god’s plan to “filipinize the world”, otherwise known as human trafficking or human rights violations against ofw’s. (Only rocket man Kim Jong-un was impressed, whilst p-noy was being impressed by rocket man elton john.)

Lani revilla – tries to put back womens rights/equality 50 years. Is she for real, or living in a fantasy world. A dinner party at the revilla’s would certainly be a cure for insomnia

portion of jingoy’s speech defending his yes vote in the forthcoming senate deliberation of the RH bill:
“……kapag may RH Law noong dekada 50, walang JV.”

ahmm, you didn’t get it. :)) hehe alcalde-mayor was the term used for a leader of a province during the reign of (Spanish) friars. gobernadorcillos=town.

Alcalde mayor refers to the leader of a province, the provincial governor-magistrate. The equivalent of the present-day mayor is the gobernadorcillo. :)

isa sa mga reasons para sa mga pro rh bill ay marami daw namamatay na mga ina dahil sa kakulangan sa health services, kung ganuon, bakit hindi na lang ipagpapatayo ng mga health centers ang pera na makukuha para sa rh bill na ito, masaya pa lahat, including God

sir senior60, mas matutuwa si God kung yung mga obispo mismo ang magtatayo ng health center para sa mga ina gamit yung mga nakokolekta nila sa misa, sa tingin ko kaya nila yun, sa laki ng nakukuha nila…

proposed name: Immaculate Conception Maternity Ward or
Virgin Mary Obstetrics and Gynaecology, ano po sa tingin nyo?

“Nobody understands the pain of losing more than us, Lakers fans.”

With that, I say: Schadenfreude. ;)
