Think Before You Say Anything About Politics

I refrain sharing my political views as much as possible in my social media account as much as possible. Gone were the days were you could freely express your opinion and have a sensible discussion to others who are opposed to your views. These days, that is not the case anymore. If you express dismay over some matter, you will be automatically branded to a certain political color (yes, the red, yellow, orange, white, purple colors that represents political party). Worst, you will be bashed and any information about you will be publicly displayed and even your family or innocent kids will be dragged. By expressing your opinion, you are also feeding yourself to the lions (or dinosaurs?). They will not stop until they get back at you and humiliate you just because you oppose their opinion. That harsh, huh? So, I refrain from commenting or even liking posts (especially in facebook) if it talks about politics.

I know I should also voice out my opinion sometimes to make a stand. But with that comes responsibility. I am not used to be dragged to any controversy just because I clicked the like button. I think not just twice or thrice but as many times as possible before posting or commenting my opinion. Because only a few people these days are cool-headed or open to criticisms. It’s funny even to see good friends now turned enemy number one just because of political disagreements. Sad…right?

So, I chose to be quiet and chose only people to discuss with my opinion. Even with family members, I shun away topics that may cause estrangement just because of political opinion.

That’s how things are these days. Nobody is wrong, Nobody is right especially if my opinion contradict theirs.

But if you really wanted to know my stand or if I have a voice to contribute, I have and I will if need be.

I am a citizen of this country, even a law-abiding citizen. I follow the right rules but I will not tolerate injustice. I respect the leaders of the country but I also voice out my disagreements on their opinions because that is my right. I have my conscience to follow and I take heed to what is right. So there, I have much more to say but I will just limit it. What I’m saying is that we will just have to respect each other because with respect, unity will still be intact. And there will be peace amongst us…

Inasmuch as I want to say ‘Happy Independence Day’, I guess I will just honor our country and the people responsible liberating our nation. Currently, part of our nation is under seige so I dunno know if it’s right to celebrate or not. Or maybe yes. Since the majority is free. It’s just sad to know what happened to our displaced Muslim brothers and sisters in Marawi. They were under siege by the terrorists group which they thought would not harm them or their place. Sigh. I wish this would end soon so that these displaced families could go back to their homes and start to rebuild the damages the terrorists destroyed.

I also pray for our dear soldiers. They battle in combat and many died already hoping to liberate the city. May they be guided and be protected in the coming days. But I pray most of all that this so-called war ends and may these evil-doers surrender or be captured so that everyone may live in peace once again.

I dunno how to feel about our current administration right now. It’s even scary if someone would post their disappointment or dismay on their social media coz they will get bashed left and right. Worst, these bashers are so mean coz they get below the belt. They are the loyal supporters of the current admin who never accepts criticisms even if it’s constructive. And even if you are not a supporter of their number 1 nemesis, they are just blind to see that because they chose to believe what they want to believe. It’s just plain annoying!

So, I’ll just post my dismay here on my blog coz I can screen the people who will come here and give comments. I’m just disappointed that the processing of government ID’S or papers (passports, license, plate numbers) are being delayed. I thought it was mentioned by our Chief Commander to hasten it but the result was the exact opposite! I dunno know who’s to blame here coz the staff are pointing one finger to another. One staff reasoned out that they were still processing the delayed license since 2 years ago. Oh. Wow! Another one said, it was because of the newly established system that caused the delay. Oh. Wow. Again!

I’m still crossing my fingers, though, that this will not take FOREVER. Or else, I would say, this is just the same as the old government. Nothing’s new. Nothing’s changed.

Always Think Before You Click

I stayed away from Facebook lately because all I get to see and read were rants from people about politics, their dirty laundry at home and so on and so forth. Of course, I could just ignore them but they always appear in my feeds when I logged in. I know there’s an unfollow button and I did that to some but a new one appeared.

Sometimes, I get distracted reading some links that I ended up wasting my time…sigh… So, I am now more of an Instagram person because I only get to see pictures and I only have few followers/followings… And what I love about Instagram is that I love looking at beautifully-captured pictures and that’s all.

Anyways, I hope some people will learn to control their emotions as not to post things on their social media that they will soon regret. Sometimes, I really find it ironic for some people to post about Bible verses and how they love, praise and worship the Lord and the next day, when they are upset, they cursed and condemned those people they dislike. They kept saying what a big hypocrite those people they trusted and disliked but look at them! I wish they look first in the mirror before they point fingers to the other people they despise. What’s the difference between the 2 of them? NADA.

This opinion of mine could get me into trouble, too, if I posted this there. So I shun away from posting personal attacks in my social media. Even at times I am tempted to do so just to express my anger or frustrations. But I also think of the after effects so I tried to think sane as not to add more damage to the situation I’m in.

So, I guess, I gotta live by this Social media rule: Think before you click.

Praying for our Country

Lately, extra judicial killing is always in the news lately. Those who were killed were known to be drug pushers and were killed by vigilants paid by the government or others said, by the President. Before election, then Mayor Rodrigo Duterte vowed to clean the government from drug pushers. He said to give him 3-6months but it will be bloody.

After the May 9 election, the mayor became the President of the Philippines and true to his words, he was after of the drug pushers who destroyed other people’s lives and weakened mostly our society’s morale. I must admit I did not vote for him although I favored him a lot. I did not vote for morality reason but prayed that should he win, I pray that he will lessen cursing in public and give a little respect for the pries coz not all of them were against him. I decided to vote for a lady candidate because I thought she was of a lesser evil.

But when Duterte won, I gave him respect and honor him as the President of the republic just like what I did in previous elections that whoever is elected, I will just support to attain peace in our nation. And I hope other people will do that as well…

Anyway, going back to President Duterte or President Digong (as what he is fondly called) fight against drugs, I am in favor of it. However, I condemn those extra judicial killings because some were really questionable. I guess some were just riding the President’s platform because some victims don’t have any record for being a pusher at all. I hope this will be investigated and be stopped before more innocent lives will be taken. Sigh.. what a waste of life to live and be mistaken to be a criminal even though you’re innocent.

Still, I pray for our President that he will be guided and be able to clean the image of our country. I pray for our nation to attain its peace and order. And I pray for the safety of our lives especially to those who are innocent.

God bless the Philippines!
