Twin Evils: Resolution 1109 And The 9-11 Terror Attack (UPDATED)

June 5, 2009


Politically astute graphic design expert and true Filipino Dennis Garcia has shared with us over at FaceBook a most insightful rendering of two parallel events – the evil 9-11 terror bombing that brought down the twing World Trade Center towers in New York and House Resolution 1109.

Reso 1109 must be brought down with the ass-licling proponents of the bribe-powered document shamed and booted out of office like their master.


The online protests against Resolition 1109 are also resonating with the Filipino-American newspaper reporting:

The Internet is slowly becoming a very potent platform for discussing issues, and in the much recent brouhaha on the additional duties on imported books, manifestos and articles on the web helped bolster the government’s decision to withdraw the tax duties imposed by the Bureau of Customs.

This time, cybercitizen Filipinos will surely wield their pens on Congress and we must expect the barrage of writings that would come out of the World Wide Web.

In the night the House passed HR 1109, netizens gave blow by blow accounts in real time, beating TV coverage that usually sign off at 12. And what’s more, they have been “covering” the whole thing for a very long time.

    For some reason, I think the analogy to ‘terrorism’ is apt only in the short run and expresses more our subjective reaction to the events this week. In my opinion, in the long run, there is no need for any analogy, for what we are looking at is the beginning, or re-booting of fascist dictatorship. We ought to start calling a spade a spade. It’s a bit late for people to be using the 9/11 icons imo.

      Yes and no, Manong Dean.

      Acts of treachery stand through time as indelible blots on the souls of the malefactors.

      The images are emblematic of events that should not be allowed to happen again.

      BTW, I have friends who perished in the 9/11 incident.
