President GMA has declared a state of national emergency but legal experts say it has no constitutional basis and is therefore illegal. What these lawyers don’t understand is that this “state of national emergency” is only a term that describes a national condition. Well, what was said was said. But if I were a president I would just say, “We are in a state of national emergency. I am not declaring it. I hope that is very clear to you now, lawyers. You ought to go back to college and enroll a course on “Reading Between the Lines.” I will never enroll that course because my span of attention is only ten lines.
Suddenly all radio and TV commentators have toned down their criticisms against President GMA after her declaration of a state of national emergency. The situation is like what we observe in the countryside where people don’t talk too much against their mayors or governors even if they could be worse.
This Sunday afternoon, there is a tension between the government forces and the marines who allegedly have withdrawn their support to the government. The place of event is Fort Bonifacio. This could be the flashpoint we’ve been waiting for, where something would happen between the government and its desperate destabilizers. Don’t sleep and enjoy the action. Maybe tomorrow everything will be under control.
See? Everything now is under control. I had better forget it. But I have to drink a lot of coffee, so I won’t be sleepy and will be able to do a lot of work, if I have any work to do at all.
