FAIRY TALE vs. SONA


My reaction [dumbest reaction, ever of BIG.BAD.EJ; duh...] to the 9th (and supposedly last) State of the Nation Address (SONA) of Pres. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, no matter how thorough, detailed, backed up with hard statistics, and seemingly "intellectual" it was from an "economist's" point of view, can be summarized in one text joke I received the same day:

Ano ang kaibahan ng FAIRY TALE sa SONA?
Ang FAIRY TALE ay kwentong di totoo na may DUWENDE.
Ang SONA, may DUWENDE na nagkukuwento ng di totoo. =))

The country looks so good and progressive based on this 2009 SONA. But why is it that, in reality, it is not? Why is it that the Filipinos, the ultimate end point, do not see nor feel any measure of progress at all?

In summary, three things to describe the 9th SONA:

  1. Fashion show
  2. Retaliation
  3. Fake

Here's a full transcript of the 9th SONA for reference.

pro gma ako. kasi kung titingnan mo sa philippines history sya lang ang presedenteng may pinaka maraming accomplishments. And kaya napapasama lang ang administration ay kasi mga sinungaling at iresponsible ang mga media dito(abs and gma).

napakalungkot ayaw ng mga kritiko ng pangulo ang charter change. Samantalang ang 1987 constitution ang problema ng bansa. di ba kayo ngatataka hindi maayos ang ating bansa kahit na magagaling naman ang ating mga pangulo (fvr and gma)
