I'm plotting here the positive and negative points of the State of the Nation Address 2011 by President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III.
Overall as I expected, he memorized his speech, which means that he knows what he is saying. Though I know that speeches we’re made by his writers, it was quite a compliment for P-Noy because he still has the final view. His deliverance is really great. I like the fact that he continued his “wang wang” operations and convert its meaning into “corruption”. The speech has a lot of humor but tackles serious matter. He avoids mentioning names of the persons involved in ”wangwang” which is quite respectful. My favorite part there is when he delivered these lines:
“Ang totoo nga po, marami pang kalokohan ang nahalungkat natin. Halimbawa, sa PAGCOR: kape. Isang bilyong piso po ang ginastos ng dating pamunuan ng ahensya para sa kape; sa isandaang piso na lang po kada tasa, lalabas na nakakonsumo sila ng sampung milyong tasa. Baka po kahit ngayong iba na ang pamunuan ng PAGCOR ay dilat na dilat pa rin ang mata ng mga uminom ng kapeng ito. Hanapin nga po natin sila, at matanong: nakakatulog pa po ba kayo?”
Humorous but makes sense right?
On the other side, half of his speech was so technical. Some of them cannot be easily understood by most Filipinos in a one time listening without explaining very deep.And i'm kinda sleepy,too.
Honestly the achievements that he showed, like in agriculture, infrastructure, justice, etc. I really don’t know about it. I commend the government for that big achievement in just a year. I’m looking forward for more success stories of our country with P-Noy’s administration.
His more than 50-minute speech was a pretty good. Ooops.. But i think something is missing.. He did not tackle about the education programs, right? Like building schools, rooms, giving books and computers. Why was it President P-Noy?
We should work hand in hand in achieving this goal. Remember, together we stand, divided we fall. Stop pointing only the negative facts. Why don’t we focus on the positive side and nurture it. Let us all stop pulling each other down, instead, help on another lift and aim high.
Help stop “wangwang”. Stop crab-mentality.
