Filipino, isa kang alipin!

WALANG MANG-AALIPIN KUNG WALANG PAAALIPIN! 

                                                                               Jose Rizal

Its not something that really did came out from my mouth, nor something that I thought would catch your attention. Its a book written by Reynaldo Cruz Garcia, a law graduate in Ateneo de Manila University, with honors. I haven’t asked his permission yet to write this, but I think it’s a great book and you (as a Filipino) should read this. Its mind opening and so moving that it inspired me to write this blog. Most probably madedemanda ako pag nilathala ko sa blog ang kanyang mga isinulat, pero sana eh payagan nya eto kahit paano. Exerpt lang naman po eh…

He wrote the whole book on my native tongue (tagalog pero may mangilan ngilan ding ingles) so bare with me… this is his first chapter. (exerpt lang po)

FILIPINO. Bakit kung lumakad ka ay nakayuko? Nakatingin sa paa, iiling iling, bubuntong hininga kunot ang noo, nanlulumo at mata’y namumugto?

Iniwan ka ba ng iyong hirang, naloko sa Multitel, inotso ni Baladjay, naiwan sa pansitan, o nagoyo?

A, alam ko na, naunawaan ko na, na gets ko na… isa kang alipin!….

… hindi ko nais kutyain ang ating mga kababayansa labas ng bansa, nais kong surutin ang mga punong bayan na syang dahilan kung bakit nasa labas sila.

… 21 billion dollars daw ang padala sa bayan ng mga Pinoy sa abroad sa kanilang mga kapamilya sa Pilipinas.

Kaya pala kahit anong laki ng nakaw sa Executive, Legislative, governmetn corporations, BIR, Napocor, Customs, Public Works, Judiciary, local governments, AFP, etc., ang gawin nila’y di maubos ubos… ang mga dugo at pawis Pinoy ang siyang… sa utang at nakaw… ang pantubos.

… tong dito, lagay doon, abot kay tsip, bigay kay sir at marami pa. Lahat ng lalapit, malaki ang tiyan at mayabang na.

… titigan mo ang billboard, pera daw ni congressman angsa daan ay nagpagawa. Hindi ba galing sa buwis mo ito, bakit utang mo daw ng loob sa kanila?

…”Ang batis ay isang kanal na puno ng burak. Lamok ang naglulundagan.

Hangin ay amoy pabrika, dilag ay galing sa Japan.

Dinamita sa dagat ay kumikislap. Bangka ay puno ng sumggled na sigarilyo.

Ang kapitan del barrio ang terror ng barrio. Ang tanod ang sumungkit sa sampayan at tumangay samanok pati na itlog nito.

Ang lupang na land reform ay napunta sa mga anak ng land lord. Dumami rin ang drug lord at gumbling lord.

Halina maglibang tayo sa sabungan!”

Well that’s it I think you should buy the book if your interested, Bob Ong quality but with edge.
