So now we have it", the villain in the Episode has been found guilty as chatged. The people has won the day and must remain always vigilant for there are still crooks and liars out there. One Big Fish has at last has been hooked,...what becomes of all the money he has hidden from the public. What about his Condos ? I suggest that the government should comfiscate much if not all of it. After all has been said and done...a new CJ shall have to be found and replace Corona immediatly. The Constitution states that the President will be appointing a new CJ"., well and good,but as we have experienced in this Episode, must it be done that way or will we change the law and let the people elect the Chief Justice. There will be pros and cons for sure, but if the President is left to do that job, then let him be free to choose that official...a man he knows and trust, rather than elected by the people. Yes the "utang loob" will be there, but that is only normal rather than elect anybody from the rank and file chosen by the people as this will lead to another Episode when that person is again paid by the millions by somebody among the wealthy and powerful for his own purpose. It is only normal that the President appoint someone known by him and most of the people and it is only normal that the person he appoints will do his job in consonance with that of the people and the President.

The "virus " of corruption is still running free out there and it takes sometime to sanitize all of it throughout the Archipilago. There is a lot to be done yet after the victory over ex-Chief Justice Corona,...his supporters will think of vengeance instead of uniting for the good of our country. Beware ! Let us all be one in Thanking God for the Victory just won !

Sustained unrelenting pressure on corruption can break it's back. Fear of the law is what makes a society clean.

I don't believe Renato Corona, Only have $2.4-M Dollars stash away. I do believe what Conchita Morales, Say that he got $12-Million dollar's.
Corona only declare P3.5-M in his SALN. Aside from that the day they impeach him he withdraw $3.5-Million Dollar's. How much more money his been hiding that we don't know about. Probably so much more.....

Give him a break, patrolling for Thumper and posting his attention is not all there.

Wonder if the brother in laws are making sand bags, fortifying the ramparts and stringing razor wire.

With Corona out, our President now has to appoint a new CJ of the Supreme Court. The Trial was able to expose many loopholes in our Justice System which favored only the rich and the powerful and it also proved that famous saying "tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are ! Former ex President GMA set the exmple of how she, with the help of her hencemen can make herself the Queen. Corona seemed the most likely person to make that possible, She appointed him Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. As a midnight appointee Corona naturally all but hugged her for that gesture of trust and confidence. Would'nt you ?....Then followed the reign of enriching themselves in the most corrupt manner possible. CJ may have started as a good man, but with his boss giving him the go signal to obey her in whatever scheme she had in mind, he gladly did so until the Almighty stopped him on his tracks, CRIME DOES NOT PAY ! Lesson learned here is clear... A corrupt President needs a corrupt Justice of the Supreme Court, can it happened again ?

We are now on the threshold towards becoming a Nation born again,...the Senator Judges unanimously voted out CJ Corona and we the people now can see big changes in our Justice System,with the exception of three, read out a very touching and inspiring explanation on why they found Corona guilty as charged. Now, who will be appointed by the President to take over the vacant position? Will he be a person of the peoples choice? If you are in the Presidents shoes" will you allow that since the Constitution dis allows it? It seems only natural and reasonable that the person of his choice must be a friend, a classmate, a well known law abiding citizen or a respected person of the community. There is no guarantee that this person will stay loyal, but still what choice has he got ? Can you find that man yourself ? If Aquino becomes bad, that CJ will follow his example and become bad too. THINK MAN " think !

No! No No! that's not what I meant, he could have sense it when Aquino became a President ! His slogan was saying " Kung walang Corrupt! Walang mahihirap!"!*(if there's no corrupt, nobody's poor!) I think no one would thought that the Chief Justice was voted out because of his carelessness. Lack of awareness. He didn't take an action in order to prepared( anticipate )He thinks that as a Chief Justice no one would do that to Him. Lol.

So you're not really financially stable because your wishing to have millions! Are you on welfare? Are you on a food stamps? That's okay. That's a tough life eh? Why don't you buy and sell some dried fish in the Philippines. You will make a lot of money. Especially rainy seasons is coming and people are buying lots of dried fish and stored it in the refrigerator. Or why don't you buy and sell Banana, Camote, vegetables to vendors to vendors or in the Public Market. It's a good Business you know. So you don't rely on your welfare cheque you know.
