I doubt if they'll ever understand that we criticize not because we don't want good things to happen, but because we do.
Dividing the nation between those who support him and those who criticize him does not do any good, only more harm. All we want is a say in what happens to our country.

I guess they'll never get it. Not all who don't support Aquino are corrupt, in the same manner that not all who do support him are clean. Funny thing is, despite their touted anti corruption drive, I feel that there is even more corruption now than ever before, and this with his people in power. All of which makes me leery of his continuing bid for even more control over the government.
The last time someone had this much control, he plunged the country into the dark ages, with martial law.

civil war is brewing in the Philippines. Not the kind of violent or destructive civil war that we have seen in many places worldwide. Rather, it is a war of colors – colors of the ribbon.

Last week, amid declining popularity as confirmed by recent polls, the beleaguered President NoyNoy Aquino appealed to the Filipino people to show their support for him and his administration by wearing yellow ribbons. The yellow ribbon has been closely identified with the political opposition in the country, especially during the time of the late dictator Ferdinand E. Marcos. Yellow was the battle cry of Cory Aquino who ascended to the presidency when Marcos fled the country. Her son NoyNoy campaigned on yellow of course.

But NoyNoy’s appeal seemed to have backfired. Not only are Filipinos not wearing as much yellow ribbon as Aquino would have wanted, but they are wearing other ribbon colors.

Those who believe that their loyalty is to the country and not to the president are wearing ribbons bearing the colors of the Philippine flag — red, white and blue. Others are urging their countrymen to wear black or grey ribbons to symbolize the demise of decency and honesty in the ranks of political leaders — from senators and congressmen to the president. Still, many are sporting peach-colored ribbons which they say represent the growing clamor to imPEACH Aquino for his actions recently declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.

In the last few days, many Filipinos have also been seen wearing rainbow-colored ribbons. At first, it was thought that they represented gay men and women who were against Aquino. It turns out these were folks belong to Catholic churches who continue to express optimism that when the dust settles and all the political conflicts are finally resolved either by the snail-paced justice system or through people power, the Philippines will be back to normal just like most other democracies. “Doesn’t the rainbow always follow a heavy downpour?” they asked.

So if you plan to visit the Philippines in the near future, you may have to pick your favorite color and hang out with others sporting the same ribbon that you have on your collar, front shirt pocket or baseball cap. No matter how you look at it, “It’s More Fun In The Philippines!”

It's a serious thing, and sometimes uncontrollable.

A mentally ill man was able to penetrate the security fence of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 and get near a parked aircraft Monday night in the absence of closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras.
