Where do we go from here?

Tuesday, September 06, 2005

There you have it, after almost 24 hours in session, Congress has officially killed the impeachment complaint. I am disgusted at the mockery that I saw on TV.

I try to refrain from commenting about the political situation in the country today, but this time I want to. Watching the Congressional session since last night made me sick to the stomach. "Distinguished gentlemen" notably, Rep. Marcoleta (he with the Eddie Gil-like hairdo) was anything but a gentleman when he attacked former DSWD Sec. Dinky Soliman personally, by comparing her height to Mahal & Mura. What kind of Congressman is that?

The others were clearly grandstanding, delivering kilometric speeches when all they wanted to say was that they vote Yes to the hurried Justice Commitee report junking the impeachment complaints. Why did I say that? Because the proceedings were televised and they started their speeches by saying hello to their constituents watching TV. Ugh.

I believe that the chance for us to know the truth behind the Garci tapes and the alleged cheating during the past election was stopped today. The impeachment trial was the perfect venue to prove or disprove the allegations, but sadly it will not happen anymore.

Please add your signatures to the Black & White Movement, if you want to show your disgust at the recently concluded Congressional Session.
