For those about to throw rocks, we salute you. \m/@@\m/

You tell us to shut it, to give them a chance

Play these “different” tunes (for the same same-old dance)

You tell us to stop with the flood of bad vibes

As it gives such discomfort to comfortable lives

 

You ask we move on, but with blind supplication

That balm you would have us apply for redemption

But the silence you ask for is a silence too loud

As it cuts through the din, as its nature resounds

 

Days from today, when you slink from the shame

Of the things you let go, of the shit that remains

We’ll still be around, different voices, the same

Will you tell us to stop, do it over again?

 

______________________________________________

The thing about silence is that it has only made it easier for the system to feed us the same garbage over and over again. If you really want the complaining to stop, break the cycle and join forces with those who would also have the same.

Make some noise. \m/@@\m/

Others say he doesn’t deserve to win because he’ll just be a useless voice in the senate; that he will only be a minority within the minority; that the smart thing to do would be to vote for someone else who would have a better chance at making a more significant impact as a senator.

Then, there are also those who keep telling us that he shouldn’t be allowed to win because he’s a rabble-rousing, godless communist; that a vote for him would be a vote against the very democracy that the Filipino people have fought so hard to win back from the Marcos dictatorship and have fought even harder to preserve to this very day.

Amidst all the quaint demagoguery, Teddy Casiño has done a stellar job of defending himself and sharing his vision for the country in all of the forums, talk shows and various interviews he’s participated in Teddy Casino Poster 3throughout the entire campaign period. His track record, his intellect, his wit, his sincerity and his eloquence have more than adequately debunked all claims on why he shouldn’t and why he doesn’t deserve to win. As it stands, the only assertion left to refute with finality is the one that claims he can’t win the numbers game. The following, however, indicate otherwise: Continue reading
