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.
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.
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?
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?
