The Total Lack of Savoir-Faire

“Thou shalt not steal”…  WITH NO STYLE.

Remember how in Ancient Sparta a thief was punished not so much for stealing, but for lacking the necessary stealth and cunning so as to be caught in the act!!!

I personally have nothing against Graft and Plunder.  After all, it’s Filipino political tradition — if not actually an international one!!!  Without any exceptions, I daresay.  Nothing new.  “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.”  But for chrissakes, Do It with Style!!! 

American journalists coined the terms “Teflon” and “Velcro” to connote two types of political personalities:  The “Teflon” personality is besieged by scandal but it “slicks off” easily like former US presidents Bill Clinton [ Monica Lewinsky scandal ] and Ronald Reagan [ Iran-Contra scandal ] and our own General President Fidel Ramos.  The “Velcro” personality is besieged by scandal but it “sticks stubbornly” like… well, our very own.

A still very rich cousin of his snapped:  “I have no sympathy at all for Him.  What a disgrace.  As you said, he had to bring home the bacon.  And when his mother died, there was very little of the bacon left.  He has made up for it, crassly of course.  Part of it is that he looks like an oversized “pork boy” and she a pygmy.  No style!!!  And his choice of “queridas” are none too impressive either.  The man just hasn’t got ‘grace’.”

Then there’s the Pipsqueak.  He must keep silent because the Palace holds him by the neck, as they know an ultimate, unspeakable truth about him which could demolish his whole world in an instant.

And the Tattletale.  Talk about “Poor Unfortunate Soul” [ to quote Ursula the villainness in Disney’s “Little Mermaid” ].  For the life of pragmatic Me, I simply cannot imagine what behooved this man to place his life, family, and entire universe in “clear and imminent danger.”  Wouldn’t it have been better for him if he just played along and kept silent???  Yes, he did it for the Philippines and for his countrymen.  I feel like telling him:  “Wake up and smell the coffee!!!”  It’s not worth it, and all you have to do is look at all the political vermin to see why.  For all the ultimate sacrifice of National Hero Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, We needed him Alive, not Dead.  We need him now more than ever.   

Ironically, it is during times like these that I “wax nostalgic” about The Dictator and his First Lady.  Now, they had GREAT STYLE [ at least politically ].  Any “scandale” simply fizzled out with a smooth, champagne-like fizz.  Any critic of his administration simply disappeared the next day.  Without any trace.  Savoir-Faire nonpareil!!!

Then there was the General President:  All he had to do was smile, signal two thumbs up, and declare “Philippines 2000!!!” and all scandals would just fade into thin air!!!

Now, why should these guys have all the fun???  We should all storm Malacanan* Palace, NOT to oust the President, but to demand our “commissions” as well!!!  The more the merrier!!!  *LOLSZ!!!*   😛   😛   😛

“Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream… merrily, merrily, merrily… Life is but a Dream…”   😛   😛   😛

    The sad thing is… I have known Pangulong Bansot through indirection from her days at UP Diliman, through BOI, the garments agency (whatever it was called)… all the way up to her entry into Malacañang after EDSA whatever-the-hell. She wasn’t a rapacious thief back then. Not by a long shot. I honestly don’t understand what happened since then.

    I guess the old aphorism is true: Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    And yes, at the same time I will vote for Kris Aquino. Anybody can say anything BAD they went about Kris. But the only thing they cannot say about her is that she lies. She never lies, not even white lies. She has the charisma of her father. I hope to see her in the Senate or Congress or even the Vice-Presidency. Noynoy, for all the hullaballoo of him being the only Jose Cojuangco elected among all the other Jose Cojuangcos and the Ramon Cojuangco & Rivillas / Eduardo Cojuangcos who won and are now appointed as secretaries of “La Presidenta Pequenita” — is so ineffective. He will never attain anything higher than the Senate. He does not have that “X factor” that would drive hordes of hungry and hopeful Filipinos to the voting stations. The “X factor” that I and everybody else sees in Kris.

    ichiro, I just read the following article in the Business Section of the Manila Standard Today (dated 5 March 2008):

    Former President Corazon Aquino and her new crusaders

    CORAZON Aquino is battling public demons in public governance. But, within her family hacienda in Tarlac, the question of management competence and tangled familial relationships continue to threaten the viability of the family’s publicly-listed Central de Azucarera de Tarlac.

    “The ability of the company to continue as a going concern depends on the successful implementation of its planned initiatives to increase revenue and reduce costs, the finalization of the ongoing settlement of its liabilities with creditor banks and settlement of the inter-company accounts with related parties,” said SGV auditor Belinda Fernando in reviewing the 2007 operations of Central Luzon’s biggest sugar miller and refinery.

    Despite a near-monopoly status, cornering 61.22 percent of total Central Luzon sugar cane harvest for 2006-2007 crop year, the Cojuangco azucarera still doubled its 2007 loss to P175.89 million from the previous year’s P87.48 million.

    The bright side? The 2007 loss was smaller than 2005’s nearly P549 million of red ink.
    Yet, despite the continuous and larger losses, the family-controlled Jose Cojuangco and Sons Inc., the azucarera’s general manager, even saw its management fee increased to P7.2 million for 2007 from P4 million the previous year.

    The management fee is on top of the modest P7.8 million in total compensation the 81-year-old chairman/president, Pedro Cojuangco, and top management received for that year.

    Incidentally, the Cojuangco patriarch also happens to be the president of Jose Cojuangco and Sons, as well as that of Hacienda Luisita, the Cojuangco family’s sprawling hacienda that supplies the bulk of sugar cane milled by the azucarera.

    Going back to the salaries, the 2007 package may look modest—the package does not yet include the free housing and domestic expenses—but it already represents an 85 percent jump from the previous year’s compensation package that the Cojuangco patriarch and relatives received.

    Like the eight-hour brownouts that dogged the Aquino presidency near the end of her term, the azucarera was also beset by power interruptions in the fiscal year when two of its three steam-driven generators broke down during the height of mill operations.

    The azucarera admitted that the milling quality of its crop was “inferior,” with recovery rate of only 1.795 against the 1.821 target for every 50-kilo bag per ton of cane milled.

    But more than the operating inefficiencies, “the decline in the market values of our products,” the cost of goods sold and services ballooning by 70.66 percent, and financing charges that racheted by over 61 percent to P232 million, the long-term viability of the azucarera rests on world sugar prices catching up with higher domestic prices.

    The higher world sugar prices would discourage smuggling of the commodity into the protected Philippine market.

    “Should world prices inch up to about 12 cents per pound, a target that is not being discounted by analysts, smuggling will ground to a halt,” Cojuangco said in early 2008.

    Since then, world sugar prices have gone up to over 14.6 cents a pound.
    ——————————-

    Hmmm…. ichiro, I think before Kris runs for President, she should clean up her family’s business first. You can say all you want about the Eduardo side but you can’t take away the fact that Danding is a good businessman. Shrewd yes, but a good businessman nonetheless.

    But Cory attracts all the negative things to this country, I’m pretty sure her negativity will rub off to her beloved Kris if she does ( God forbid ) become an elected official.

  9. JLB said,

    March 3, 2008 at 5:10 am

    Kris’ side of the Cojuangco family is not “suwapang” greedy, haughty, nor arrogant. During Cory’s time as President, her children were conscious of what was theirs and what was not theirs inside Malacanang Palace. Cory’s grandchildren would even ask when getting candies in Malacanang if those were theirs or if those were from the government…

    They are so different from the Eduardo Cojuangcos. If you dig deeper, during Charlie Cojuangco’s stint as mayor of Pontevedra town in Negros, he kicked out town officials and constituents if he did not get his way. I personally know several prominent relatives of Gretchen Cojuangco’s Montilla side of the family who did not vote for her husband in 1992 for obvious reasons…

    Here is an article written by Ramon Tulfo about RP, the right hand man of Glorietta-mini-mall….

    “I know the person behind the immorality campaign against Lozada.

    He is a Cabinet member.

    He was the brains behind the smear campaign against me and my brothers Erwin and Raffy at the height of my quarrel two years ago with my friend then, presidential spouse Mike Arroyo.

    This Cabinet official allegedly heads the “dirty tricks” department in Malacañang.

    Among the smear tactics employed by this man was having a caricature done of me and my brothers in the nude.

    Perhaps the man lacks something in that respect. Some people project the source of their inferiority complex into others.

    This official is also reportedly a womanizer.

    One of the girlfriends – w who flirts with her male badminton playmates – is rumored to have several police bodyguards.

    This Cabinet official used to invite VIP guests to his yacht where they reportedly hold orgies with prostitutes.

    One of the ladies of the night, who was invited to these orgies, told me that when this official paid her, he just picked up bundles of P500 bills from a bag and handed them to her without counting.

    Another woman, a nightclub hostess (now called GRO) who was a partner of this official many years ago, told me he gave her “Ecstasy,” a dangerous drug.

    In short, the guy is also a user.”

    I agree with you, Dona Delilah. Enrile said yesterday that La*son is behind all these and even the baiting of Lozada asking for money from Gaite and for protection from Atienza, everything was a bait. It was never reported yesterday on the biased ABS-CBN.

    such a waste of time grilling this witness in the senate. almost all senators, save for a few, are criminals and thieves themselves. and congress wants to impeach gloria when these congressmen enriched themselves too while in power… “yumaman sa pwesto.” it’s sickening to see how *rap and de ven*cia try to act so holy while castigating gloria when all of them are criminals. such hypocrisy!!!

    My mother got mad with me when I was raving about Madame Imelda. She reminded me how her father ( my grandfather ) nearly had a heart attack during the NASUTRA days… The NASUTRA National Sugar Trading Corporation was a government-controlled corporation during the time of Marcos headed by Roberto Benedicto… all sugar “quedans” were sold and turned over to NASUTRA at a controlled-fixed rate… My mother told me the houses in Rome and some of the shopping sprees of Madame Imelda came from the coffers of NASUTRA……

    ***********************************************

    ‘Palabas’ lahat. Of course she had to live on ‘modest’ means during the trial. She couldn’t exactly be living in the East 66th St. townhouse (which had lots of videos of her partying there), the Olympic Towers condos (if they were still hers), apartments in the Waldorf or the Carlyle, or the estate in Lindmere — and still plead ‘poverty’ before a jury at the state court, could she?

    (It must have killed her not to be able to shop flagrantly in her favorite haunts of Harry Winston, Bendel’s, etc., during those ‘trial’ months.)

    And, ichiro, you’re actually going to waste your money on her autobiography? Like what can she say that informed people already don’t know? There are already 2 biographies of hers: 1. by Carmen Navaro Pedrosa, and a second one by Kerima Polotan.

    The former is an excellent read, and after the first edition, caused the author to flee the country. After the downfall of the regime, she issued an updated edition. The latter was a ‘friendlier,’ ‘sanctioned’ bio. Naturally, the more honest, unexpurgated volume is a better book.

    ichiro, I would think after a whole generation since those original robber barons were booted from power, you would be a little more discriminating in being able to separate the chaff from the grain. **winks**

    DU-UH! There are so many closet queens in the present cabinet! One of them happens to be one of Glorietta’s VERY favored ones. Just ask former investment bankers and stockbrokers (circa 1990-1995), they’ll know who it is. But seriously, does a person’s sexual preference matter? This guy (the investment banker) was pretty good at what he did. He just needs a good dentist and a trip to Dr. Vicki Belo.

    It’s ironic how small Manila Society is: despite different “political colors,” some families end up together through the sacrament of matrimony… the grandchildren of Pete Cojuangco and Sari Cacho are second-degree cousins to both the grandchildren of Ninoy Aquino and Cory Cojuangco and those of Ferdinand Marcos and Imelda Romualdez… Lisa Cacho Araneta-Marcos being the niece of Sari Cacho-Cojuangco. Pete Cojuangco even courted Imelda Romualdez at one point.

    it has been there since the time i was born, starting with the Marcos-Romualdez families… for me its no big deal. some kind of cycle: rallies, ouster of the thieves, and reincarnation of the thieves, courtesy of the forgiveness and short memory of the Filipinos. why rally at ayala and attend mass with Cory at La Salle Greenhills?????? i’d rather eat cake, literally, in a nice place in makati… why hate Gloria? how about the cronies of the late dictator like the Eduardo Cojuangcos, the Ramon Cojuangcos, and other kiss-in-the-as* Filipino families. it was only Cory’s side of the family that got “poorer” in the Marcos years… but she is also a hypocrite: during her exile, Danding gave monetary help, while during the EDSA campaign, the Ramon Cojuangcos also gave… no wonder, during her presidency, those relatives remained unscathed……

    ichiro, you’re damn right, the Philippines should try Kris Aquino as the chief executive… i’m sure she would not steal money…… She and Mar Roxas would make good teammates… Kris being the goddaughter of Judy Araneta…

    is it m*caria madrigal who gave d*osdado mac*pagal the forbes park house after losing in the presidential election vs. marcos?

    ***********************************

    Now, it would make sense. I always wondered how the ‘upright’ and stalwart Cong D*dong, who was never known to be as rapacious as his successor, was immediately able to afford Forbes Park after losing to the Nalundasan slayer.

    And I don’t think their spacious but hemmed-in house in San Juan would easily have converted to a prime North Forbes property. So m*caria must’ve offered one of their spare properties — in exchange for a nominal fee or some sort. (And I know there were still the kids to send to college, etc., after moving out of the Presidential palace.)

    After all, there’s really nothing wrong with helping a fellow-mekeni from Lubao, since 2 other sisters were already ‘in’ with the new occupants of Malacanang — in 1965.

    And that must’ve started this practice of housing fallen rulers and/or their families for free. 🙂 In that era alone, there was the Shah who first moved to Panama, then Cairo. Then there were the Duvaliers of “ton ton macoute” fame, hounded back to France. And then the most notorious of all, the ‘Frames,’ were esconced in a swell manse in Makiki (how appropriate) Heights in the paradise of the Pacific, reportedly owned by the “banana king” of the home Islands. (Wouldn’t that have made a nice setting for a ‘Big Brother’ series?

    Imagine a candid exchange between the 2 principals of that notorious house in Makiki Heights, caught on camera:

    – ***O, bakit ka nag-bitiw?*** (“Why did you relent?”)
    – ***Ako? Ikaw — walang katapusan iyong kaswapangan mo at mga kapatid mo!!*** (“Me? What about you and your siblings’ unrestrained greed?”)
    – ***Hindi ko na ma-take!! Doon ako matutuglog kay Doris ngayon gabi!!** (“I cannot take it anymore!! I will go over and sleep at Doris’ tonight!!)
    -***O sige!! Basta wag lang so Liberty House na-naman!!*** (Alright– just as long as you don’t end up in Liberty House again!!)
    – ***Suya! Tsche!*** (Makes irap. “Hrrmph!!**)

    Exits and slams the screen door on her way out!!

    And finally, the lone Survivor, the Merry Widow, after gallivanting all over the globe, retires back to her native isles, retiring in ( another ) ‘borrowed’ penthouse. Cashing in her chips — from the “banana king” to the “patis king” of the archipelago!!!

    There’s nothing like going native — and depending on the ‘kindness’ of strangers….well, well-heeled friends and co-conspirators actually. *wink* *wink*

    “Nag-aral sila sa isang very exclusive school sa London na mostly ang students ay from the elite class of the world: mga children ng mga presidents, prime ministers, kings, dukes, millionaires, etc..”

    “one day daw nahuli ni Bambang na ang elder sister nya na si Eemi ay ni-re rape ng anak ng lord of Parliament or ( a duke ?). so napatay ni Bambang ang anak ng duke. then gumanti ang family ng duke at pinatay rin si Bambang.”

    “ang mother nila na 2nd wife ng dictator na ito ay dating Mis* Manila noong panahon ng isang mayor na ka-apelyido ng isang dating PNP Chief na naging senador. sabi din nila na ay itong si Eemi ay anak ng mayor na yaon, dahil dating boyfriend ito ni Madame bago niya naging asawa si diktador…”

    “ang mayor naman na ito ay namatay during his term, namatay dahil sa heart attack, sa isang motel na ang kasama ay isang magandang artista named Charito S. delikado pala ang sex pag may heart problem ka…”

    “ito raw mayor na ito ang tunay na ama ni Eemi at hindi ang diktador na lahi ni Limahong.” ( the diktador got the mongol-look from that chinese pirate Limahong who terrorized the coast of Northern Luzon during the early days of the Spanish Era ).

    “so the diktador was very sad and arranged for another person, a near relative, to take the place of the son who was killed in London in the early 70s. yaon ang sinabi, na ang bumalik na son named Bambang ay hindi ang tunay na Bambang.””

    It is said that before Ferdinand Marcos met Imelda Romualdez, he was eyeing Consuelo “Chito” Madrigal (-Collantes). But Consuelo, a wealthy and snobbish Boston University graduate, busted him.

    When Marcos became President he told Consuelo that she should’ve been the First Lady had she not busted him and Consuelo responded that at least their name was not soiled [ J*mby’s soiling it now ].

    Anyway, Consuelo / “Chito,” the matriarch of the Madrigal Family, has a unit in Manhattan ( worth USD $ 25 million ) right in front of the unit of Sylvester “Sly” Stallone.

    Come to think of it… as taxpayers, WE are also investors in this business of plunder. We deserve to get our fair share of commissions!!!

    I don’t know what’s happening in Manille. Que Horror! I cannot judge Glorietta right now. I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt. She’s not like those new politicians who are just tasting the good life now. In fairness to her, she has been living a charmed life since she was a young girl. She lived in Malacanang. This is not the first time she is tasting power. It was with her since time immemorial. Her husband’s family has been rich ever since. They practically owned half of Metro Manila in the Spanish times. Practically all of Marikina. I don’t know. Let’s give them a chance. Everyone deserves a second chance…
