SAME SEX MARRIAGE...Go?

LOS ANGELES The Screen Actors Guild officially stands opposed to
the California ballot initiative that would ban same-sex marriage.

After weeks of being criticized for not contributing enough to defeat
Proposition 8, members of the film-TV industries have recently stepped
up their contributions financial and otherwise to fight
Proposition 8, and on Tuesday a union committee voted to oppose the
measure.

"No actor should have to disclose his or her sexual preference in order
to get health and retirement benefits," said SAG Chairwoman Anne-Marie
Johnson. "Being legally married means everyone is treated the same. It's
important that we take a stand to protect all actors from discriminatory
hiring practices and provide same-sex couples access to benefits."

SAG said the organization does not endorse political candidates, but the
actors union often takes positions on ballot initiatives. The union's
Colorado branch previously announced it is opposing Amendment 47, a
right-to-work measure on the state's November ballot which would bar
unions from requiring nonunion workers to pay dues.

In the last two weeks, several SAG members have personally donated money
to defeat Proposition 8, according to state fundraising records,
including: "Two and a Half Men" actor Jon Cryer ($10,000); "Bones"
actress Emily Deschanel ($2,000); "The New Adventures of Old Christine"
actress Wanda Sykes ($3,500) and "In Plain Sight" actress Mary McCormack
($3,000).

personally, well, i dont believe in marriage. haha. it's romantic, aright, but i dont know. don't like it. (why do i sound so cynical?)

but i think it's just about time that all of us respect others' sexual preferences. and the best way to show this is to allow same sex marriages.

Mga parausang lumang sinehan

NAG DESISYON na ang Korte Suprema na labag sa Konstitusyon ang ordinansa na nagbabawal ng short time sa mga motel sa siyudad ng Maynila.

Wala na ring balak pa umanong maghain ng apela si mayor Alfredo Lim sa naturang desisyon.

Nagbabala naman si Lim na handa niyang ipasara ang anumang motel sa lungsod ng Maynila sakaling may makita sila na pinapayagan na magpapasok ng mga estudyante para magshort time.
Pero, teka, ito talaga ang pakay ko, ang mga lumang sinehan sa Metro Manila.

Taong 2005, balak ko na itong iparating sa dati kong boss na Kongresista, ang patuloy na pamamayagpag ng mga lumang sinehan sa Maynila. Subalit, may tila tinik sa aking lalamunan na nakabara. Tila, wala akong boses sa tuwing ako ay maghahanda sa aking mga sasabihin. Tila, nakagapos ang aking mga kamay para isulat ang mga hakbang na dapat kong irekomenda para masulosyunan na ito.

Alam ko, ikaw ay pamilyar ukol sa mga lumang sinehan sa buong Kamaynilaan.

Sa unang pasok ko sa ganitong sinehan, ako ay tuwang tuwa. Napan…

PILIPINAS, TUNAY NGA BANG MALAYA NA?

NGAYON ANG IKA 111st NA ANIBERSARYO NG ARAW NG KALAYAAN NG PILIPINAS. Ngunit, sa paglipas ng isang daan at labing isang taon, tunay nga ba tayong malaya na?

May mga pagkakataong gusto kong isipin na hindi na tayo nakagapos sa mga bansang banyaga dahil nagkaroon na tayo ng kalayaan sa pamamalakad ng gobyerno. Ngunit, ano ang kalagayan ng mga Pilipino ngayon? Mayroon na nga ba siyang dangal na matatawag? Taas noo na nga ba ang bawat Pilipino kahit kanino?

Sa mga nakalipas na araw, samu’t saring problema ang dinaranas ng ating bansa. Mga problemang lalong nagpapalugmok ng bawat mamamayan. Mga problemang animo’y walang katapusan. Paano babangon ang isang Juan dela Cruz kung mismong mga namumuno sa ating bayan ang nagbabangayan? Paano tayo makakalaya kong mismong mga halal ng bayan ang siyang nanguna upang itali ang bawat mahihirap na pinoy sa kanilang pamamahala?Paano na ang walang tigil na pagbulusok ng presyo ng mga pangunahing bilihin? Ang walang humpay na pagtaas ng gasolina. Paano pa m…
