THE FOX GUARDING THE CHICKEN COOP

The Philippines in its attempt to grow and mature is at a crossroads now as we speak - selecting the next Ombudsman.

If I am not mistaken, the Ombudsman is to guard the citizenry from abuses, and graft and corruption in the government. So, what is wrong with this picture?
  • One of the big two hounding PGMA is graft and corruption
  • Seven out of the 8 candidates are either directly or indirectly associated with PGMA
  • The top choice, as reported in the press today, is one Atty. Merceditas Gutierrez, close to PGMA, has been appointed in a high government position before, and a classmate of FG.

Grow and mature? I say, back to the womb.
