On Embang Serfino as Confidential Assistant of Sharee Ann Tan:

I didn't know that the popular and beloved Mana Embang, the perennial emcee of Catbalogan, is working with Rep. Sharee Ann Tan. I am consoled that she has some influence on the young congresswoman. I believe that Mrs. Serfino is competent and credible. She could guide the career of an inexperienced legislator.

While Mrs. Serfino is highly esteemed in Catbalogan, Fely Castillo of USA complains that she is unprincipled. I do not think that Mana Embang is unprincipled. In fact, she's the one who stands as the conscience to her boss. But, as to whether her boss listens to her is another matter. She is simply being dragged into the poor performance of her boss.

Mrs. Serfino is only guilty of association with the incompetent Tan dynasty. I do not know why she accepted the position as confidential assistant because only she can answer that. The same question was asked why the highly respected Sec. Esperanza Cabral, former UP-PGH head, of DSWD remained with the Arroyo presidency. Guilty by association is difficult to erase in the minds of the public. In the world of auditors, there are two faces of independence: independence in fact and independence in appearance. Applying the same concept, one's guilt is either by fact or by appearance. I strongly believe that Mrs. Serfino and Sec. Cabral are merely guilty by appearance.

My challenge to Desiderata, defender of the honor of Mrs. Serfino, is to convince Mrs. Serfino to relay to Rep. Sharee Ann Tan for her office to be transparent and competent. I know that Mrs. Serfino's strengths are in communications. She has served as PIA provincial director before. Can they publish what they did with the more than Php 140 million that were Rep. Tan's pork barrel share in the two years that she held office? Can they come up with a website so they can show how the lady legislator is voting or reacting on issues of national concern? Can they enumerate the substantial things that the office of Rep. Tan has done in her more than 2 years as congresswoman? Can they spell out the difference, if there is any, to her performance compared to that of Cata or Eddie?

Sad to say, I know that the performance of Rep. Tan is as dismal as her predecessors. Instead of dealing with the real issues, she continues to perpetrate the "Wowowee"-style of governance of her mother---raffle draws, dole out politics, and bugas-ngan-delata delivery. Is Samar better off with both Sharee Ann and Mila on Samar's throne than say two years ago? The sad answer is a big NO.

Arrogance Begets Public Disapproval

The House of Representatives' arrogant show of power in the dead of the night convening itself as a constituent assembly sans the participation of the Senate is reminiscent of Batasang Pambansa's proclamation of Marcos as president in 1986 and the Senate's refusal to open the the envelope believed to contain damaging evidence against President Estrada in 2001. Both actions were done in haste and with the use of sheer force of the ruling majority. Both were done by the bully majority against a weak and marginalized minority. Both historical events supposedly were to protect the incumbent presidents but both turned out to be the rallying points that caused the collapse of the Marcos dictatorship and the demise of Erap's presidency.

The problem with Arroyo's allies in the House is their thick-faced arrogance of power. No less than the presidential son, Rep. Mikey Arroyo, was in the forefront of the house resolution that would open the constitution to changes that would benefit the sitting president and the members of the House of Representatives via term extension, removal of term limits, and other political accommodations.

A Constituent Assembly mode of changing the constitution is supposed to be done by both houses of congress, the Senate and the House of Representatives, but the bully congressmen think that they could dispense the Senate. Cockiness and haughtiness are in the minds of the ruling majority. They know that they could do what they want since they have the numbers to back their actions. And, maybe because they know that the recent retirement of justices who were opposed to illegal modes of constitutional changes opens a new window of opportunity. They know that they now have the upperhand to appoint justices who would merely kowtow to the request of the administration. After all the battle royale will be fought in the Supreme Court. To date, only 3 justices of the 15-member tribunal are not Arroyo appointees. I think that only Chief Justice Puno (Ramos appointee), Justice Quisumbing (Ramos appointee), and Ynares-Santiago (Estrada appointee) and the maverick Justice Antonio Carpio (Arroyo appointee) will be the four hardcore defenders of the constitution. Justices Austria-Martinez, Corona, Carpio-Morales, Chico-Nazario, Velasco, Nachura, Leonardo-De Castro, Brion, Peralta, and the new justices that would replace Justices Azcuna and Tinga will most likely vote to uphold the theory of the House of Representatives.

Pres. Arroyo must be smiling in disbelief how easy it is for her to extend her term of office. Incidentally, her Political Adviser Gabriel Claudio is a samarnon. Amazingly, every single move was calculated and staged. GMA calls for the merger of Lakas and Kampi last Thursday, less than a week later the House rams a resolution convening itself as a Constituent Assembly with or without the participation of the Senate since they believe that the voting for changes in the charter should be jointly and not separately.

Timing is everything. The Senate is busy trying its own member Senator Manny Villar and hearing the cheesy sex scandal of Kho and Halili. This coming weekend on the birthday of Sen. Panfilo Lacson, another bitter critic of the administration, Col. Cesar Mancao will be arriving from the US to testify against Lacson for his alleged involvement in the Dacer-Corbito murder. While the Senate is in disarray, the House will make sure that the CON-ASS will deliver the CHA-CHA to the enjoyment of GMA and her cohorts.

Even the broad spectrum of the opposition is splintered with so many presidential candidates. Divide and conquer is the tactic of the administration. With a splintered opposition, a disorderly senate, a compliant Supreme Court, an evil administration, and a complacent public, GMA and her cohorts will continue to push their luck further and further.

However, they should learn the basics of history. At the height of Marcos' arrogance, he was humbled when the public claimed the seat of power and showed him the exit door by flying a helicopter to his exile in Hawaii. At the height of Estrada's oozing confidence, he was humiliated to get out of Malacanang via boat thru the Pasig River to his exile in jail and his Tanay resthouse. Will Arroyo's haughtiness hasten her retirement to oblivion? Well, the two former presidents were taken by a chopper and a boat.. Will she be dragged in a kariton when it's her turn to repeat the same mistake committed by her predecessors.

It's all deja vu. It is a perfect example of history repeating itself.

Re: Brod Ed Caceres' reminiscences of DYVL - Salamat ha imo, Brod Ed, an akon hadto kasabot nga namingaw ka la dida ha New Jersey. Maupay nala nga nagsurat ka dinhi ha Samarnews. Balitaw, ha akon la ini "pagtiro-timbang", mas maupay gud han hadto pa nga panahon an mga taramdan ngan mga tigbalita ug mga comentario ha DYVL. Labi na gud an imo ngan han akon "favorito" - hi Mr. Peping Calleja, nga danay usahay "nabato-bato" han aton hadto fraternity ha DWU, pinaagui hin iya mga "pasumbingay" dida han mga pasamwak. He was a truly a guy we loved to hate, as he also kept us amused and entertained (bisan kon danay kita naiigo...kundi "usahay" la.) Sugad man kan July Cabaluna, maupay liwat adto panmati-an an iya mga comentario. Asay pa an mga taramdam dida han kulop (an "Paisan-isan Han Mga Posong") ngan ha gab-i ("Hira Tukmo Ngan Punay", ngan "Takna Han Harana").

Seguro, tungod man gud han aton hadto ka "addicted" pagpinanmati han mga winaray nga taramdan ha DYVL, naaghat kita pagpasundayag han makaruruyag nga drama, "An Anak Han Manaranggut", obra maestra han nawara Norberto Romualdez, Sr. Pastilan, ngada yana - nahinunumdum la gihapon ako han "dialogue", hin ka makaruruyag la ngay-an yaknon han aton minayuyo nga winaray. Kanugon la nga waray adto naton ipasamwak ha DYVL (kay seguro, waray ta ada hadto "sponsor"), kay kon nahipasamwak pa - bay-ug gud ada an bug-os nga Samar-Leyte hin katatawa.

Kon may man ugaring mainuyaton ngan maungod pagpasundayag hini nga drama, andam gud ako panmati ha radio, o sino pagkita ha entablado. Yana kay aada naman iton Liceo del Verbo Divino, hinaut pa unta nga aada pa iton nga "script" han "Anak Han Manaranggut". Salamat nala hini nga imo pangandoy, Brod Ed, kay baga natatambal gihapon an akon kamingaw ngan kahidlaw han mga tuig ngan mga "kakulop" nga naglabay. Upaya nala niyo dida ha New Jersey, ngan kumusta nala ha ngatanan nga aton mga paisanos didto.

USA denizen Fely Castillo’s scathing remarks as contained in her message dated 16 May 2009 on Mrs. Embang Serfino’s “principios” reek with the puritanical bigotry of the Salem Witch Hunt and the infamy of the Inquisition. For someone who seems so far away yet so concerned with the mundane world of local politics, kibitzer Fely Castillo is, for one, pompously trivial, the reason why until now nobody takes notice of her rumblings. Were it not for the “holier-than-thou” stance she expended in castigating Mrs.. Serfino, I would not bother myself to adopt a defense. While Ms. Castillo can assume any position of calisthenics in besmirching Mila Tan and her daughter Sharee Ann, she should have at least the sensibility to consider that Mrs. Serfino is not an elected public official and no longer a public servant, for she retired from the service a couple years ago or so, and her services with Sharee Ann as confidential assistant is on a co-terminus status. May I ask Ms. Castillo, what did Mrs. Serfino do to her or to the Samareños to deserve her public condemnation? The most decent thing that Fely Castillo can do to Mrs. Serfino is to publicly apologize.

Look at the picture

The frontpage picture on a mass wedding sponsored by the 14th Infantry Battalion (Avenger) of the 8th Infantry Division as part of their 36th Founding Anniversary celebration has some odd images that are totally outrageous. The PR Officer of this battalion must have not properly reviewed the picture with two of the brides bulging in their last trimester of pregnancies. What has this picture paints? Well, it tries to tell the whole world that members of the 14th IB of the 8ID are not truly military gentlemen---ones who uphold the virtues of chastity, rights and welfare of women, and their own personal discipline.

Mr. PR man, please be careful next time.

The Philippine Senate headed by Senator Ponci Enrile ignorantly is proposing a law to outlaw internet sex video much less internet hacking. Who could be the most ignorant in the world than an old man himself who possibly depended his secretary all his life to perform office work? Even the NPA command and control nationwide which heavily use encrypted and discreet computer systems, our AFP cannot even make a dent. I bet you that the NPA is communicating in video pictures of military target better than the AFP, yet the Philippine Senate is much more interested in sex video. My Godness! Where is and what is our national priority? Should Ponci Enrile put up billions of pesos national budget to irradiate sex video? Why can’t we just leave the show business alone? It is guaranteed Hayden Kho, Maricar Reyes and Katrinia Halili were all enjoying then and still enjoying worldwide popularity today. Their worth is better now if they pose in Playboy Magazine.

Kho-Halili Senate Drama

It is so disgusting watching the whole Kho-Halili drama at the Senate the other day. You have a purely criminal case paraded to the whole nation as a hearing in aid of legislation. Dr. Kho should be charged in the proper legal forum instead of having him face the senate. The thing is the whole episode only added insult to the injury suffered by Katrina Halili. It is so sad that we have politicians who are acting like screen actors and we have actors who are acting like politicians. The proper treatment would have to exclude the public of the hearing if the intent was to really hear the story of the crime perpetrated and to eventually craft legislation that would prevent, penalize, or criminalize the video-recording of private sexual encounters for public consumption. Having a public hearing only eroded the credibility of the senate. But the intent was not in aid of legislation but merely a platform for incompetent legislators to parade their thirst for media mileage.

Take for instance the bully Sen. Jinggoy Estrada, he castigated a lawyer by using his mantra of "since I am a senator, you have no right to question my ruling." A grade 1 pupil can easily beat Jinggoy in a debate. Since he could not justify the "media-hungry" stand of the committee, he resorted to his bully rhetoric. Having an unggoy instead of Jinggoy in the senate is probably better. My goodness, can we put an end to this Estrada nightmare in our national life? I hope that we no longer elect another member of the Estrada family into national office.

Another comic is Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla. He denounced that Abner Afuang's dousing Hayden Kho with water was a mere "scripted" gimmick of the Kho camp. He later apologized for his stupid remarks when he later heard that Afuang was really mad at Kho's lewd acts. Remember that it was this studpid clone of his father, unfortunately another former senator, who brought this whole scam into the fore of the senate. Truth to tell, Sen. Revilla has no moral ascendancy to denounce the abuse perpetrated by Hayden Kho because he himself is another womanizer who have been fooling with his legal wife. It is public knowledge that the chinky-eyed senator has begotten children out of his own marriage. When he uttered the word "scripted," I simply laughed because he was merely explaining how scripted his "privilege speech" and public acts as well. When a senator follows order from another scam queen, Lolit Solis, his manager, I don't think that he is credible. Since Bong Revilla is salivating the vice presidency or another comeback to the Senate next year, can we all just padlock his chances? Why vote for somebody whose major accomplishment is delivering a speech denouncing a sex scandal? Erap is better as a senator because he authored the Carabao Bill but incompetent fellows of Erap like Lito Lapid, Bong Revilla, and Jinggoy Estrada have not authored even a single major legislation. Talk about "scripted?"

Also, the chair Senator Madrigal is another media hungry lady. When she banged the gavel and reminded Katrina Halili to refrain from using foul language against Kho, I was reminded of her own verbal abuse against Gilbert Remulla spewing invectives like "lintik na itik na talunang manok," "corruption king of Cavite," "Landgrabber of Cavite," and others. If a senator like Madrigal supposedly coming from a respectable family can utter those unparliamentary language, how can she impose that on Katrina Halili? This lady also wants to be vice president of Ping Lacson. She is really mad these days because Manny Villar keeps on snubbing her and Gilbert Remulla filed a case against her and her heiress aunt Chito Madrigal did not give her a dime when she died.

Now, Hayden Kho should face the proper forum to answer for his unathorized recording of his sexual explorations. He should use his sexual fantasies in the Bilibid. The NBI should file the necessary charges against him. The Philippine Medical Association in conjunction with the Professional Regulation Commission should start the hearing of revoking his medical license. The Optical Media Board should stop the proliferation of the pirated DVDs of the Kho-Halili & others sexual encounters. The Philippine Senate should focus on more important legislations instead of trying to grab some media mileage out of all this sexual scandal.

The real news like the the ethics case of Sen. Manny Villar, the merger of Lakas and Kampi, and the swine flu pandemic have all been swept to the sidelines because of the sexual scandal. To me, the senate should lead the public to focus on issues that of great national concerns and not merely follow the public for its own interest in media mileage and public voyeurism. Enough of this Kho-Halili episode and let us focus on other issues that affects the ability of Juan dela Cruz or Mang Pandoy to eat three meals a day, a roof over his head, a shirt over his back, and the opportunity for his kids to attend schools this June.

Are they discussing these pressing issues? No, they are all into showbiz!

Thanking Capt. Basilio Balasbas and looking for the beef!

Many thanks for the update Capt. Balasbas. How I wish we could have public officials with unselfish desire like that of Capt. Balasbas.

I think it is now time for all of us Samarnons in the 2nd district of Samar to ask our lady representative Sharee Ann Tan to account for the Php 140 million (Php 70 million per year) pork barrel fund that she got from the national government. How did she allocate the money and could she show us some proof? With another Php 70 million coming for her third year of her first term, we should hold her accountable before the entire Php 210 million will just be another sham.

Where's the beef, Sharee Ann? Recently, she claimed that she is among the 10 poorest congressmen of the country with less than Php 3 million in net assets. Being the youngest, she deserves to be there but we should collectively ask her to show us what she has done differently from her predecessor.

Maybe the local media should become the watchdog of the people instead of acting as the lapdog of the politicians. They should ask our public officials how they spent the taxpayers' money instead of asking our public officials their AC/DC (Attack and Collect/Defend and Collect) fees.

Can Isog Han Samar ask those hard questions to our public officials? Where's the beef? Show us some proof!

The taste of the pudding is in the eating. Moooooooooooo!!!

To A. Morales of Catbalogan

I am still here trying to acquire enough ammunition for a no non-sense campaign from start to finish. This is a gargantuan task to accomplish that once we commence there is no turning back.

I am appending herewith a communication from a very special friend who will be a very big factor once we start our massive campaign province wide.


Dear Basil,

I was able to read your email to Prof Cesar Torres just this evening. Of course nalipay ako hin duro nga at, least nakakakilala ka pa ha akon...Nag retire na ako as SUC president ha Siquijor State College after working for almost 44 years in government., , Kararating ko lang galing sa San Jose for a short conference with some estate realtor personnel. Nandito ako sa San Francisco, CA dahil nandito na ang isang kong anak si Irence na nagtatrabaho sa Judicial Council of California. Babalik din ako dyan sa Samar before the twon fiesta in Catbalogan, this August, God willing.

Basil, kikitaon ko la this 2010 kay damo iton nag aaghat ha akon pag pa candidato komo congresista ha Samar. Kun baga, kitaon ko nga mayda paglaom, then probaran ko pag dumara mangad pa baga umuswag an provinsya han Samar nga maiha na nga panahon nga naghiragayday. .. labi na jud an mga kablas, pobre ug mga timawa. With my trak records as SUC President for about 15 years and president of presidents of Colleges and universities, notwithstanding our linkages and connctions with different GOs & NGOs, , casting modesty aside, I am certian mahihimo ta ito pag pa uswag han panginabuhi han katawhan dida ha lalawigan han Samar. In fact, ini nga imo ubos nga sangkay an nag spearhead han COMPREHENSIVE DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR THE MODERNIZATION OF SIQUIJOR ISLAND PROVINCE. Didto liwat gin launched an THE TRIUMPH OF THE PEOPLE wherein the poorest of the poor Siquijorians will at least be 2% above GNP before year 2025. Ug ine nahimogso while I was president of Siquijor State College from 2000-2008.- - -

An gin kikinahanglan ta yana nga panahon an pag urusa, pagboroblig, in our own little way, base man intawon umuswag an provinsya han Samar nga, ha dugay na nga panahon oripon la gihapon ha kakablasan an damo naton nga mga kabugto-an, apisar nga damo an aton natural and human resources dida ha aton lalawigan.

Sayud ka man han aton mga kinabuhi hadto nga panahon han mga kabataan pa kita dida ha Guinsorongan. Pero tungod han aton panlimbasog, nagpakatapos kita han pag aram ug naka pag servisyo han aton igkasi filipino... Lugaring la kay dida man ako nagtrabaho ha educational institutions, diri kumo usa nga elected official han probinsya ha Samar.

Damo gad an akon plano ug mga pa agi pag pa uswag han Samar, Dida ko ine ig sasaysay pag abot han tama nga panahon, especially on governance, ug pag pa uswag han panginabuhi han katawhan ha Samar.:Ngani yana, I received infor nga diri nakaka penetrate an mga volunteers, community organizers, didto ha mga upland barangays dida ha Motiong, Catbalogan, Jiabong, etc kay diri natugot an mga NO PERMANENT ADDRESS. Mayda dida long time politician behind this movement base magpadayon an ira mga personal nga mga panuyo anan....kay kon damo an gutom, madali nera ma palet during elections... I hope makita mo iton tinuod nga kahimtang hiton Samar...compared hiton iba nga mga provinces ha Pinas, waray labot han pag compare ha iba nga nasud.... Paki-ana , ..waray na ba tinuod nga taga Samar nga maaram mag dumara hin maupay han probinsya.?. .Panahon na ... PAG MATA NA SAMAR!

Hanggang sa susunod..... .Hope to hear from you soon Basil.

An imo sangkay,

Prof Cesar,

I'm still locked up with my former employer in Subic to get the money that I am going to utilize initially to finance the creation of our campaign Hqs in Catbalogan and in Calbayog not to mention the mobilization of our volunteers. For more than one (1) month I have'nt read my email. Anyway Doc Doming is a dear friend and a neighbor in Guinsorongan during our elementary days. They originated from Bagacay, Daram, Samar.

With respect to the problem of penetrating highlands inorder to echo the problems of graft and corruption in the urban centers being perpetrated by the TRAPOS, the military has its civil military arm. Community organizers can communicate with the 8th ID and together they can conduct CMO and convince the NPA's to work hand in hand for peace, progress and development especially those in the hinterlands of Samar.

I cannot yet proceed to Samar to start a no non sense campaign because I am still in the process of raising funds to sustain our campaign activities from start to finish. I will keep you posted for the progress of our vote-seeking activities province wide.

Basil Balasbas

Hiuning hini nga Mila Tan's family dynasty, ungod la iton nga sering ni Mr. Tony Morales nga posible nga magdaog hira ngatanan yana nga tidaraon nga eleksiyon. Maraam man kita nga an ira pinakakusog nga machinery iton aton mga kabugtuan ha igbaw/bukid. Dako gud an ira investments didto han mga leaders ha igbaw...napirdi niya hi Cata Figueroa hin suhulay ngadto ha igbaw. Bidding manla iton ha ira, kon hino an mas hataas mag bid asya an ira dadad-on. Siguro nagbabasol gud ada hi Cata nga api hiya han pagpinatalsik kan General Palparan.
