WE’RE still working out a better, bandwidth-friendly way for people to download the huge three-hour-long audio files of the taped conversations that allegedly transpired between Comelec Commissioner Virgilio Garcillano and Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, her husband Jose Miguel, and other individuals. In the meantime, here are smaller chunks of the 160 megabytes of MP3 recording to go with the transcript posted earlier:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21 | 22 | 23 | 24 | 25 | 26 | 27 | 28 | 29 | 30 | 31 | 32 | 33

Note: We’ve disabled the links to the files here because of bandwidth problems with the dramatic surge in data transfer on our site. Check out this post for the alternative download link.

Man, my blog stats are peaking because of the tapes :chuckle:

Uh, indirectly related to the issue is news of Pampanga congressman proposing Friday the creation of a body that will regulate the use of encryption technology in the country, with individuals, groups, businesses, and corporations using any kind of encryption technology to register their encryption key with a government board.

Yup. This, even after the military’s tapping of the Arroyo-Garcillano conversations.

I know his proposal covers Web-based communications but both fall within the cryptography banana.

Your take on this – anyone?

Hey guys, I really hate to be the devil’s advocate here but whats the use for 160MB of audio data (3hours) which nobody yet would dare bet their ass as to wether they believe they are true and why they believe so.

1. Alecks, Shiela, do you believe the voices are indeed Garcillano’s?
2. If indeed they are, do they seem to be tampered, spliced or changed to implicate or even protect the people involved? In short, can we form an intelligent opinion based on the recordings?
3. Is someone doing some research already on how to verify whom the voices are coming from from the recordings? …There is one electronics kind of guy who commented somewhere that even students at UP or Dela Salle can make some simple analysis and verify who the voices where (using DSP, whatever that is). Has this been verified?

You see, before we jump in the water to swim in the pool, we need to know first if there is indeed water in the pool.

We made the recordings available for purely journalistic reasons: so the people may know. Reports on these recordings are all over the media, anyway, and Filipinos should have access to the tapes so they can filter the information themselves, independently of media gatekeepers. This is the same reason why we often upload documents on our site. You don’t have to take our word for it. You have to judge for yourself.

We do not have the capacity to make an independent verification. We can barely upload the MP3 files on this site! I am confident, however, that expert opinion will soon be called in by both sides. Meanwhile, before we enter the battle of the experts, here are the tapes…

you dont need engineers to personally conclude that the tapes are real. there are so many questions that you can ask yourself about details in and surrounding the taped conversations that would only lead you to conclude that it’s the real deal.

that said, we may need the engineers if we involve processes which require the operation of evidentiary rules. but i hope we dont get there. our batting average for convicting big fish is next to nil, if not nil. masyadong maraming matatalino at tuso na pinoy.

hi masha, given the current situation dont you think we require evidentiary rules? dont worry, last i heard, sen lacson already had the tapes investigated by an australian firm, they concluded it was indeed gma’s voice, disputing youir claim that “we dont need engrs”. of course the real deal is in the details of the conversation. but there are now versions of the conversations and the administration now claims that it was not gma nor “gary”. and i thought that the only way to prove these claims is thru engineering.

hi jobardix

denials are easily spewed out but how do they explain the taped conversations and all the attendant details? they offer no alternative. they just sweep everything under the highly generalized mantle of destabilization moves. that’s not an answer.

i dont begrudge people who want to go to engineers. my point is people already believe it without the engineers. but i guess those who are still on the fence need a more scientific validation of the tapes. and i concede we might need the engineer’s stamp of approval if a substantial number of people continue to sit on the fence.

the processes i’m talking about are legal processes where a higher bar for proof is needed. we might not even get to that.

the believability character of the tapes is high without an impramatur from an engineer. the problem now is how to get as many people to hear the tapes.

i’m also wondering why nobody is trying to get hold of bobby barbers. seppuku may be going through his mind now.

maybe the arroyo administration is hoping that all this will go away if only a few people get a hold of the tapes. i dont see how arroyo can go back to governing after this. if she does, that says a lot about us.

Thanks for the suggestions. We are stumped by BitTorrent but hope to figure it out. We are also looking into the possibility of an independent verification.

As for this version of the recording, yes, it is the same one that Samuel Ong has in his possession (he claims to have the master tape or at least one of the master tapes). We can call this the Omnibus Version as it contains the entire recording made by ISAFP operatives of Commissioner Garcillano’s conversations from May 17 to June 18, 2004. The CDs released by Bunye carried a small portion of these conversations. Were the Bunye releases “spliced”? We’d need experts to tell us.

So you guys want us to jump first before we know there is water in the pool? By not telling us whether you believe that the voices are from Garcillano, and by letting everyone comment on their contents rather than on authenticity, you are actually leading us to believe that indeed they are from Garci.

By first saying what you bet on, your readers would better understand that the posts are mainly your opinion and may not be accepted as facts. We can then proceed to agree or disagree depending on the level of trust you have already gained from us.

For example, when Sheila says:

“…We can call this the Omnibus Version as it contains the entire recording made by ISAFP operatives of Commissioner Garcillano’s conversations from May 17 to June 18, 2004.”

… it seems that Shiela knows for a fact and concluded that it was the ISAFP operatives who did the recordings. Now does she really know, we can only guess. It seems her sources were the “oppositionists” and her own conclusions from some comments made by Sen. Biazon.

I deem we often see this kind of opinion blurred within and around some facts, in the mainstream media. The PCIJ should not get into the fray, just to be in on the “hot” news.

Answering a pro-Arroyo supporter from another forum

why is there a cold reaction regarding these tapes?!

bakit parang walang pakialam ang taumbayan kahit medyo convincing ang nilalaman ng tapes na ito?!

I don’t know re this “cold reaction” when most people haven’t heard the tapes yet. Eh hindi pa nga pinaparinig ng major tv stations like GMA7 at ABS-CBN yung tapes eh, for chrissakes.

Unlike Erap’s Juetengate or Lacson’s Narcopoliticsgate where major tv stations provided wall-to-wall live coverage of the events, yung Pidal expose ni Lacson, yung expose ni Oscar Cruz on Juetengate 2 and the GLORIAGATE tapes are not getting the same treatment.

Kung si erap ang nasa tape na yan, discussing something re nakawan or dayaan, do you think GMA7 and ABS-CBN would bow to the wishes of Malacanang and not play those tapes on tv?

yeah, I know that the DOJ (using another law dating back to the Marcos era) has threatened anyone who has possession of the tapes with jail time. Bawal makinig at mag-possess ng mga tapes na yan. But why did ABS-CBN and GMA7 (including the INQ7) acted like sheep and meekly complied with the order?

Kung si erap ang nasa tape, do you think they’d follow the DOJ’s order, lalo na kung potential evidence ito againsts erap’s criminal activities?

do you think the NYT and the Washington Post in a similar situation would back down against Bush admin Attorney General Alberto Gonzales threatening them with jail time if they have the incriminating tapes vs. “Bushitler”?

Pagtatawanan lang yan ng NYT at WaPo.

My sense is that ABS and GMA7 doesn’t really want to play the tapes, and the DOJ gave them a convenient excuse to self-censor themselves.

I mean, kung fake yung tapes, lalabas rin naman ang katotohanan diba? Katulad nang nangyari sa CBS Memogate vs. Bush TANG record. CBS posted a photo of the document in their website and within hours nalaman kaagad na peke ito.

Why won’t ABS-CBN, GMA7 and Inq7 do that, and let thousands of ordinary internet users and audio experts from around the world download the tapes and hear for themselves and determine if it’s true or not?

Sef, I believe Sheila made that point in her “The Full Monty” post about what we think could be telling clues about the identity of the voice referred in the transcripts as “Gary.” I refer you to the following paragraphs:

Unlike the tapes released by Malacañang, the three-hour recording leaves a trail of clues as to Garcillano’s identity. For one, he was frequently referred to by various callers (including Senator Robert Barbers) as “commissioner.” The President herself calls him, “Garcy.” Most telling of all, in a June 12, 2004 phone call to a certain “Tony,” the commissioner identifies himself as “Commissioner Gil Garcillano.”

In another conversation, at about 10:55 a.m. also on June 12, Garcillano called his wife Grace, who said she was at the second floor of a department store and asked that he meet her there. The commissioner referred to his secretary, Ellen Peralta, by name. As posted in the previous blog, a check with Comelec revealed that Ms. Peralta is indeed Garcillano’s secretary.

But having pointed that out, we’re not going to insult our readers’ capacity to decide for themselves by imposing on them what we think is correct. The search for truth ought to be everybody’s concern, not just the journalist’s or the media’s.

Telling us what you think to be correct is not an imposition nor an insult to the readers’ capacity to decide for himself. It creates a baseline to openly show where your views are coming from.

Meanwhile, by merely assuming that your readers are at the same frequency as you are, and by not officialy stating the, although obvious, position you are making, it plays you safe but unfair to the personalities involved.

We have seen too much of it already in the mainstream media and is not needed here.

If the tapes have really been altered Mrs. Arroyo should immediately request the US government’s Federal Bureau of Investigation to have the tapes authenticated. The NBI or any other government agency should not authenticate them since they are under the Office of the President. The Filipinos need a credible independent organization to do the job. At this point in time she has not done so. Why do you think ?

I personally agree with Sef, only few knows what is the truth. It is also true that the tape can be verified using high resolustion Analog to Digital converter or DSP. The biggest problem is the data. Who can collect the real voice of those people involved? If somebody can provide the said data or voice, it would be easier to compare against the mp3 files that can be dowloaded here. Please do remember that there are already missing information in an audio file when it is converted to MP3 that is why MP3 has less size. Kindly post the raw data and for sure somebody will analyze it for free.

even if there is no people power, she will never live this down. there are i think enough copies to go around and this will not be expunged from the memory of those who have heard the recordings, no matter how few. so i think she should do a nixon.

i think it is harder to stomach and live with unacknowldeged and unapologized for, but clearly, blatant cheating than to accept that noli de castro would become our next president.

every week, i hear the government lamenting of being destabalized by the stalwarts of anybody who is against the President. There is always a plot going on. bombings in the metropolis, lawlessness on the streets, killings of press people, groupings are slowly not being allowed. street protests are illegal.

I myself is thinking that a prelude to martial law is going on…Or is it silently happening?

I dont know…tell me..

Does anyone know of such a software? (voice morpher meron– voice changer yon!) I’d like to have one so that I can also copy/mimick the voices of Bunyi, Gonzales, Wycoco et al. Their voices are good materials for a cartoon program!

Mabuti kung kaka-nuod lang ng cartoons. Look at how far these people will go (even to the extent of making a fool of themselves in front of millions of people) just to defend their positions how ever hopeless it may be. Nakikinabang kasi!

The issue here is NOT… sino ang nag-tap? Opposition ba may pakana? Destabilization ba to? May political affiliation ba si Ong?– These are no longer important. What is important is what the tapes contain. Is it really GMA (I have no iota of doubt that it is her voice)? If not (which is highly unlikely), then let’s go on w/ our lives. But If that is indeed her voice, God help us!

Deja vu, When Senator Lacson was about to present Udong Mahusay to the Senate re Jose Pidal investigation, he was said to have been rescued in cavite by the “moralist” mike defensor, interestingly Udong’s family was picked up by government operatives from their province. The wife apparently received a text from Udong saying he was being held against his will. We all know that Udong retracted.
Fast forward……..Samuel Ong said the tape was given to him by ISAFP operatives and one turned out to be Sgt. Doble. Anthony Taberna of DZMM said on radio that he saw the seargeant in the seminary last Friday (or Saturday). Then the familiar scene happened. Dobles family came all the way from kidapawan saying she received text from the seargeant that he was being held against his will. …
The government will do anything to suppress the truth with the help of the military and police.

I salute you for your courage in serving the people’s right to know the truth.

Sadly, I am one of the many who relies on Internet kiosks and here in the province, the connection is dismal to download huge files, as in the case of the alternate link that is posted here. If I may suggest, how about a short synopsis on each file – like which particular file has the “alleged” GMA-Garci conversation.

A streaming version is also a nice way to minimize the harassment from GMA’s people because this will skirt the “possession” issue.

For lack of resources and with the priorities of raising my young children, I decided to shut down my old site. Somebody out there got a hold of my old domain – rsinform.com – and a porno site is now using it. “Strangely,” if you use Yahoo’s search engine and type “Getting rid of Erap is not the answer,” (my long discontinued site) you’d get a result pointing to this porno sight.

Anyway, keep up the good work and more power to PCIJ.

PCIJ, thank you so much for posting the unadulterated version of the transcripts and the taped conversations. There are so many versions of the conversations that it became so confusing to identify the original from the tampered version. You are doing the country a great service by making the three hour version and transcript available to those who are interested in understanding this controversy. Our country needs an informed citizen (correctly informed that is) so that we can again discern which move to take. Most people only have a slight idea of what happened and ramifications of this expose. Thru PCIJ, i hope they will slowly understand what transpired so that the outcome of these events would be for the better of our country. We should get to the bottom of these in order to obtain the truth. I am just wondering why the President does not address the issue directly? To keep silent on these matters is not helping turn the tide to her favor. Thank you PCIJ.

Gloria will never resign .. UNLESS there would be extreme pressure coming from majority of the Filipinos. To be practical, a graceful exit should be provided to make it easier for her to resign…. but personally I think she should be jailed. She is worst than the previous administration. Sayang ang tiwala ko sa kanya… Pati ako naloko niya!!!!

A lot of our countrymen still has not heard of the tape. Keep up the goodwork PCIJ.

Ang kapal ng mukha ni GLORIA. Mga padre damaso ng simbahan tumahimik! Civil society asan na kayo ngayun! Makati Business Club??….helooooo

The issue is whether she is the person heard on the tape or not. If it is really her then she should step down or she should be impeached! Who replaces her is not really the issue. (But hopefully not Estrada … patawa na yun! ) .

mabuhay ang pcij!

maraming salamat sa pagbibigay ninyo ng pagkakataon na marinig ng mga nakararami nating mga kababayan ang mga “tape” na pilit na itinatago ng mga iligal na namamahay sa malakanyang.

sa aking pagbabasa ng mga komentaryo sa mga pahinang ito, lubha akong natutuwa sapagkat mas marami pa rin ang mga pilipinong bukas ang mga diwa at mulat ang mata sa mga kasalukuyang kaganapan sa bayan nating mahal.

sa aking palagay ay napapanahon nang hubaran ang pagkukunwari ng mga institusyong nagsama-sama upang babuyin ang proseso ng halalan sa ating bayan. magmula sa mga ganid na mangangalakal ng ayala (makati business club) na siya ring nagtataguyod ng namfrel, ang bulag, bingi at mga piping pari at mga obispo na di umimik gaputok man sa kabila ng mga patunay ng pandaraya na naganap noong halalan ng 2004, ang mga oportunistang opisyal ng sandatahang lakas na naging instrumento sa pandaraya, at higit sa lahat si GLORIA MACAPAGAL ARROYO.

walang dapat pang ibang sagutin kundi ligal ba ang panunungkulan niya gayong ni minsan ay di sya hinalal ng bayan? kapanipaniwala ba ang resulta ng halalan ng 2004?

kung mayroong mga pagtawag ng pagkakaisa, ang pinakamahalaga ay ang pagkakaisa sa paghanap ng KATOTOHANAN sapagaka’t yan ang kailangan ng bayan. huwag tayong bibitiw. ang 5 taon pa sa ilalim ng HUWAD NA PANGGULO ay lalong magsasadlak sa atim sa karima-rimarim na buhay.

the tapes are a legitimate news phenomena that merits an in-depth report on its front page.

With the overwhelming evidence and the reaction (or lack thereof) by malacanan on the Gloriagate issue, malinaw pa sa sikat ng araw ang katotohanan – guilty si Gloria and she should resign. Subalit marami sa atin ang nanahimik na lang sapagkat ang tanong ng karamihan, Sino papalit? Si Noli, si Abat, si Rez? Clearly, most of us are missing the point.

As De quiros pointedly said, the issue should not be “Who should be the next president?” but instead, “Who should NOT be the President?”

We would at least acknowledge that there was a touch of genius in selecting Noli for VP. Now GMA could taunt her enemies and wavering allies alike, ” O sige nga. Gusto n’yo si Noli!” Like it or not, many of us are indeed afraid, very very afraid. As for me, we chose democracy so let’s live democracy through all its vitues and faults. Then maybe we’ll learn to vote better next time. The Noli scare is just preventing us from maturing.

I believe that we should live by the ideals of a democracy and a nation founded on the rule of law.

We should stand up as one nation against repressive acts of state, such as censorship, police brutality of people exercising their rights of freedom of expression, of speech, of the press, and to public information.

We should practice the principles of due process. A person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Let us hold off judgment until: (i) the tapes have been authenticated to be unspliced or unaltered; and (ii) the voices in the tape have been verified to belong to GMA and Garci. Thereafter, we should allow the people we have elected into office to act in accordance with our Constitution, i.e., upon complaint and investigation, the House to file Articles of Impeachment before the Senate; thereafter, the Senate to act as an Impeachment Court and pass upon the issue of whether GMA has committed a culpable violation of the Constitution as to warrant her conviction and, thus, justify her removal from office.

If all this comes to pass, we can be proud to be Filipinos. Doomsayers who say that the Philippine economy will crumble because of these scandals have a poor opinion of the Filipino’s resiliency.

I have copies of the 67-page transcript of what is ‘claimed’ to be the 3-hour “mother of all tapes”, and i have the 4 cd’s of the same. I also have the ringtone. At this point, i do NOT claim that what i hold is authentic. But i do believe that i have the RIGHT to be informed. I want to be prepared to face the issues when the authenticity or non-authenticity is officially determined.

It seems like the civil society is split right in the middle on what to do with the issue. This is sad, as the watchdog would now have to be watched. There is a saying about this kind of situation. But after so many hours of listening, the mind was blunted by the larger sense of frustration.

Last night as I was staring at the CD, a thought came into my mind. The CD may well serve as the primer to fire the missile into the correct trajectory of change. The question now is: who is capable of pulling the trigger.

Opinion lang sa tanong ni traxxxxy. Malabong ilantad ng Telecommunications at Cellphone companies kung anumang information may hawak nila. Magrereflect kasi ito sa kanila at damay ang policies (right to privacy). As much as possible, ayaw nilang madamay din sa gulo. Unless siguro kung yung cellphone or line na ginamit is gorvenement owned meaning for public use in the case of Garci kung nasa ahensya siya sa salukuyang naguusap sila ni GMA (lawyers, correct me if I’m wrong). At kung bibigyan nila ng special-power-of-attorney ni GMA o ni Garci sa mga companies para ihayag lahat ng impormasyon.

to GMA:
I know that you let your men monitor this site.
Nakalimutan mo na ba na nag punta ka sa roma at nakipaglibing pa para kay Pope John Paul II. Pinakita mo sa lahat ng pinoy sa buong mundo ang pagiging “devout catholic mo”. Taimtim kang nanalangin para sa kaluluwa ng Santo Papa at malamang nanalangin ka rin para sa mga relatives mo, immidiate family mo, sa health mo at para na rin siguro sa bansa. Hindi ba napaka banal ng moment na yun dahil nasa seat ka mismo ng holy catholic chuch.

Pero hindi ka man kinatok ng kunsyensiya mo at pinitik man lang ang puso mo sa mga kasamaang nagawa, ginagawa at gagawin mo. Yan ba ang natutuhan mo sa mga magulang mo, sa mga madre sa paaralan mo, sa mga pari, obispo, at cardinal na pinagsisimbahan mo lingo-lingo. Yan ba ang gawain na natutunan mo sa pag babasa ng banal na bibliya. O cguro sa pagkumpisal mo alam mo na pinatawad ka na ng Diyos at ni Jesus. Ika nga abswelto ka na kse justify mo na papra sa kabutihan ng mga pilipino ang paglilingkod mo.

Hindi ka na natakot! Alam mo na uusigin ka pag dating ng panahon at alam mo sa bigat ng mga kasalanan mo na pupunta ka sa pinaka iiwasan mo na puntahan pag pumanaw ka na. Naging masyado kang materyalistiko at makalupa. Isinantabi mo lahat ng natutunan mo at ng pagiging isang babae na naniniwala kay Kristo.

Sana lang hindi ka magka sakit ng malubha at pahirapan ka sa banig ng karamdaman. Matanda ka na at alam mo na malapit ka na sa panahon na magkakasakit ka. Hindi ka kayang iligtas ng epera na ninakaw nyo sa sambayanan

Hindi ka man lang nakunsyensya na nagdrasal ka sa harap ng yumaong santo papa at napakalaki ng kasalanan mo. Ganyan ba ang pagiging deboto.

Ako ay naniniwala na maka karma ka rin kagaya ng nang yari kay Devenecia. Sana mas malala pa.

And frankly, I don’t want it stopped.She denies nothing, but makes sure we don’t hear the tapes.She says she is not afraid of coup d’etat attempts.She says the declaration of the thirteenth as a non-working holliday is not an attempt to placate the masses.I hope she chokes on her bullshit.(Post a new comment) reicalg 2005-06-12 06:18 am UTC (link) oi..dinikit ko na yung sticker na binigay mo dati nung 4thyr xmas party..somewhere where people can see it clearly..it’s time…hehe…natatakot nga lang ako…start of classes sa 14..ayokong may mangyari habang asa uste ako..wah!(Reply to this) (Thread) exsanguinatrix 2005-06-14 08:10 am UTC (link) WAAAH!

Ang laki ng files e 😀 (Reply to this) celeni 2005-06-12 10:59 am UTC (link) The legitimacy of her power is flawed, yet a lot of people are still blinded, considering her as the “lesser evil.”Oh come on. Just because she doesn’t have a career in the entertainment industry doesn’t make her the “lesser evil.” I’m antsy about a revolution because I’m not a revolution type of girl, in fact, I’m still in an onslaught of denial considering this “things” only happen in my history books. I have a certain degree of social apathy.If Gloria really wants to save her ass this time, my brilliant idea (if I were her adviser) is to stage an assassination. That way, it will nullify the audiotapes as fabricated and would draw more complexities to the issue. It doesn’t completely clear out her name, but at least, she wouldn’t suffer that much of a shame. :P(Reply to this) (Thread) exsanguinatrix 2005-06-14 08:08 am UTC (link) and then she’d do what? retire to another country under an assumed identity? …not bad.Actually, ang tanga dyan, when the first 30 minutes of the tapes came out, her office ACKNOWLEDGED that it was her. Fuck.I can’t see how she can wriggle her way out of this. Also, I don’t know how she can still show her face in public anymore.(Reply to this) (Parent) (Thread) celeni 2005-06-14 09:08 am UTC (link) Exactly, there’s no way out of it. Her minions are stupid. If you’re gonna cheat, you better cheat smart.(Reply to this) (Parent) of no relation to your entry. tarintik 2005-06-12 02:26 pm UTC (link) nasan ka ngayon?(Reply to this) (Thread) Re: of no relation to your entry. exsanguinatrix 2005-06-14 08:06 am UTC (link) nasa istates. :)(Reply to this) (Parent) (Thread) Re: of no relation to your entry. tarintik 2005-06-14 12:50 pm UTC (link) you went to the states on INDEPENDENCE DAY. hihihi. :)(Reply to this) (Parent) dullwhite 2005-06-12 06:54 pm UTC (link) malamang magagalit ka sa sasabihin ko pero im on GMA’s side sa issue. i’d rather accept the fact that she cheated to become president and think (fool rather) to myself that it was of her best interest to “save” the country from being ruled over by some now dead pinoy moviestar than have that now dead pinoy movie star be the president and die on us in the middle of his term.. or much worse, allow FPJ to turn the philippines into ETHIOPIA. haha. sorry. malabo. and may FPJ’s soul rest in peace.using my (not so) common sense, i asked whyd all the tapes come out now? why JUST now? why not a month after the election? parang ito kasi ang strategy ng opposition.. they couldnt find any skeletons in GMA’s closet so they start questionning the first family.. when that didn’t work to destabilize philippine economy, they produce those tapes. ewan ko lang.. but dont these things just seem too dubious? they seem to me like the opposition’s desperate attempt to destroy her so they and their self indulgent selves could take over and milk the country for all it’s worth. yun lang. that was what i was gonna right about in my previous entry.. i ended up talking about a condo and a car. *whoops. i guess im self indulgent too. hihi. pwede na ako maging pulitiko sa bansang ‘to mehn.* ewan. (Reply to this) (Thread) exsanguinatrix 2005-06-14 08:05 am UTC (link) ah, gets ko naman sinasabi mo. Oo, ayaw natin kay FPJ, dahil totoong dubious ang kanyang kakayahang mamuno sa bansa.Ang point ko dito ay: wala talaga si GMA. On top of the steady fall of the peso, the steep and steeper prices of necesities, the blatant corruption of her cabinet (and herself), her inability to listen to her people’s needs, her bias toward the foreigners, the budget cuts from education and basic health just so we can pay our debts, she lies to us and bastardizes democracy? taena, iba na yun.Kung kaya nyang dayain ang taong bayan, ano pa ang kaya nya?Galing din sa tapes:GMA: “Gary, there are a few teachers who said they saw us empty ballot boxes. Asikasuhin mo yan.”Ano yun, diba?Alam ko naman na politicians will by lying buttheads, pero NAMAN! Sana yung matalino na sinungaling. Bobo naman na nagpa-wire-tap sya, pakshet.(((Dun sa kung bakit ngayon lang lumabas ang tapes, alam ko dating kasama ni GMA yung nag-wire-tap. Tapos lumipat lang sa opposition.))) […]
