I am a Filipino.

17 Jun

I know, I’m guilty of writing politically charged blog posts lately. I just can’t help it especially when I see Imelda Marcos crying on TV and telling everyone that she only lives off the former dictators pension nowadays.

Apparently, she was asking the government to “return” her jewels which are reportedly worth 15 billion pesos. Wow, where did she get all that money? I wonder.

Is she serious? She is one of Newsweeks ‘Greediest People of All Time’ for crying out loud! Even if she lived in the  slums and lived as a poor person until she rots, she won’t even get close to paying her financial and moral debts to the Filipino people.

“I have no more funds. I have no more funds.” she says in pure agony. Well I say this speech is entirely uncharacteristic of someone who used to close Bloomingdales for a day so she could enjoy a private  shopping experience.

Imelda Marcos

Madam, those jewels, shoes, cars and mansions belong to us Filipinos– all 91.1 million of us. You took it without our consent while bringing worldwide shame to your motherland. Now you still have the nerve to call them yours?

Bvlgari Diamond Bangle, 30.76 carats ($1,000,000)

Up until now, I’m wondering why this lady was never put behind bars for corruption. Then again, who am I to question a justice system which allows the Arroyo family to roam the streets without any remorse?

    Wow, that Bvlgari Diamond Bangle could build a small school! All the Imelda jewels should be auctioned off while Mrs. Marcos is watching – that will be torture for her, I guess :)

    No, don’t change, Nobe. I love your feisty post – this one at least. I’m beginning to suspect the others are gems as well.

    What’s wrong with Filipinos is their short-term memory. Dramahan lang nang konti naaawa na.

    What’s with Imelda anyway? For all her unexplained, this is the best script she could come up with. Very insulting. Grrr.

    But then again, she maybe right. Some of us are lapping up her sob stories. There maybe something there for her.
