Judgement Day

No, I'm not talikng about the 2nd coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but the coming election on May 10, 2010. The truth is I was drafting a new note when a flash news from ABS-CBN caught my attention, it was reported by Anthony Taberna the official endorsement of the Church of Christ (Iglesia Ni Cristo) for the following candidates.

President: Benigno Simeon " Noynoy " Aquino
Vice President: Mar Roxas

•Muntinlupa Rep. Rozzano "Ruffy" Biazon
•Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr.
•Sen. Pia Cayetano
•Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago
•former Sen. Franklin Drilon
•Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile
•Sen. Jose "Jinggoy" Estrada
•Bukidnon Rep. Teofisto "TG" Guingona
•Sen. Manuel "Lito" Lapid
•Ilocos Norte Rep. Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr.
•former Sen. Ralph Recto
•former Sen. Vicente "Tito" Sotto III

After the long wait 5 days na lang siguro ang sakripisyo natin sa ingay ng kampanya, Maraming bagong pangyayari at totoo naman pong makasaysayan ang mga ito (Siyempre, first time for the new Executive Minister of INC brother Bro. Eduardo Manalo to make an important decision for the Church.) First time din na gagamit tayo ng machine mula sa manual ay magiging automated na. Kaya nadagdagan na naman ang mga terms sa ating vocabulary tulad ng PCOS, CF, naging high tech na rin ang kampanya.

After months of election related activities such as filing the certificates of candidacy, political alignment, defection from one to party to another, grueling campaign period, tons of political paraphernalia, gimmicks, mutli-media ads (including social sites such as Facebook, Friendster, Multiply, Twitter and the worst of them all those text messages.) Bombardments of TV ads, news and interview from morning to late evening. Muslingings among politician are normal things, poitical gossips such as election failure,
postponement of election and the worst thing, some are getting paranoid for the scenario of automated cheating. After all this thing babalik na tayo sa normal nating buhay.

Related Notes:
Religious cult leader Apollo C. Quiboloy has endorsed Gilbert Teodoro. The El Shaddai Movement is reportedly endorsing Manny Villar. Last week, the CBCP picked JC De Los Reyes over his rivals.

Binay: Pareng Erap napasama pa yata yung pag-amin ko na may kabit din ako, tulad mo, ayan wala tuloy tayong nakuhang religious endorsement.
Erap: Wag kang mawalan ng pag-asa malay mo i-endorso tayo ng mga Muslim, di ba pwede sa kanila ang maraming asawa?"
Binay: " Ha-ha- ha!"
Erap: " Ha-ha- ha din."

Richard Gordon said: " Hindi ako naniniwala sa mga surveys at nga religious endorsement, ang totoo hindi na rin ako naniniwala na mananalo pa ako."

Erap: Sakit ng ulo ko paano na to, hindi ako dala ng INC, balita ko pa si Villar ang dadalhin ng El Shaddai."
Brother Mike: Don't worry malaki naman ang tsansa na manalo yung kabit mo bilang mayor ."

Pacquiao: " Umiiyak ka ba dahil d ka nadala ng kapatiran?"
Villar: " Hindi tinamaan mo ako ng itaas mo yung kamay ko, muntik na akong ma-knock-out ah."

Noynoy: " Totoo ba yung balita mo Shawie na dadalhin ako ng INC, baka naman ine-echos mo lang ako."
Sharon: Oo naman, teka wag mo kong yakapin baka magselos si Kiko."

While walking down the street one day, a powerful
senator of the Philippines is tragically hit by a
truck and dies. His soul arrives in heaven and is met
by St. Peter at the entrance.

"Welcome to Heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you
settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom
see a high official around these parts, you see, so
we're not sure what to do with you."

"No problem, just let me in." says the senator.

"Well, I'd like to but I have orders from higher-up.
What we'll do is have you spend one day in Hell and
one in Heaven. Then you can choose where to spend

"Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in
Heaven," says the senator.
"I'm sorry but we have our rules." And with that, St.
Peter escorts the senator to the elevator and he goes
down, down, down to Hell.

The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a
green golf course. In the distance is a club and
standing in front of it are all his friends and other
politicians who had worked with him, everyone is very
happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, hug
him, and reminisce about the good times they had while
getting rich at expense of the people. They play a
friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster and

Also present is the Devil, who really is a very
friendly guy who has a good time dancing and telling
jokes. They are having such a good time that, before
he realizes it, it is time to go. Everyone gives him
a big hug and waves while the elevator rises. The
elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on
Heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.

"Now it's time to visit Heaven."
So 24 hours pass with the senator joining a group of
contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing
the harp and singing. They have a good time and before
he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter
returns. "Well then, you've spent a day in Hell and
another in Heaven. Now choose your eternity." He
reflects for a minute, then the answers: "Well,
would never have thought it, I mean Heaven has been
delightful, but I think I would be better off in

So Saint Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes
down, down, down to Hell. Now the doors of the
elevator open and he is in the middle of a barren land
covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his
friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and
putting it in black bags. The Devil comes over to the
senator and lays an arm on his neck.

"I don't understand," stammers the senator. Yesterday
I was here and there was a golf course and club and we
ate lobster and caviar and danced and had a great
time. Now all there is a wasteland full of garbage and
my friends look miserable.

The Devil looks at him, smiles and says, "Yesterday we
were campaigning. Today you voted for us!"
