Corruption As ‘Official’ Policy

February 5, 2009


Filipinos just have to accept the fact that their tax money will continue to be stolen and that corruption in government agencies awash with public funds is tolerated.

This is essentially what presidential alter ego Hermogenes Ebdane is telling us.

The public works secretary’s boss is having breakfast today with 44th US President Barack Obama so I have to wonder whether Mr. Ebdane realizes what he is declaring to the world.

Senators known to march to Malacanang’s music are even saying that the onus is on the World Bank to cough up the evidence in its findings that construction firms with confirmed links to presidential spouse Mike Arroyo “colluded with one another” to bag road contracts funded by the World Bank.

One cannot but wonder if they realize both the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund are American-led, and capitalized by the United States.

This patently cavalier attitude if not scandalous toleration of corruption and theft of public funds by Manila is disgustingly shameful.

Mr. Barack Obama’s call for leaders like Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to “unclench” heir fists appears to have fallen on absolutely deaf ears with government monkeys neither seeing, hearing, or speaking evil.

This while their society is shackled by poverty and the worsening economic crisis.
