So this is the time of the year where we get to work on our goals for 2017. We look back to the year that was and start listing how we want 2017 to look like. This is a great time to put the past behind and put our learnings from 2016 into motion for a better year ahead.
2016 was awesome year for me. It was a year that was full of blessings and learnings. It was also a year that I saw myself politically involved with what was happening in the country. While my Instagram feed was a gallery of my travels, my Facebook account was a gallery of my political views.
And yes, I am a well-informed Dutertard and a passionate Filipino.
This would be my last post for 2016 so I opted to make a wishlist for 2017 for some of the most colorful personalities this year. I have chosen these personalities based from my perceived notion that they made 2016 a colorful and vibrant one.
President Rodrigo Duterte
You rock! This is a man who shook and is still shaking the foundations of Philippine politics creating ripples in the country and around the world. A lot of things are being thrown at PRRD but you have to admit that this is a man of action, and not mere words. The former Davao City Mayor is THE only Philippine President who made Filipinos feel that there is a government that is working for Filipinos – free tuition for SUCs, free medicine, free hospitalization for indigents, free irrigation, etc. His actions go beyond the words that come out of his “filthy” mouth. He is a man who is now showing the world that the Filipino is not a pushover. You cannot deny that.
This is the same reason why he is upsetting SOME people.
I wish for good health and safety for PRRD. Your accomplishment over the past six months have been awesome and is felt by many Filipinos. We still have 5.5 years ahead, dear President, and I am excited to see more pro-Filipino actions in the years to come. OUR country badly needs you.
Vice President Leni Robredo
I still have high hopes for you, VP Robredo. I have a strong gut feel that if you and PRRD work together towards the common good for the country, we can move forward faster.
I just wish that you can go beyond your political affiliation in 2017 and REALLY work for the best of every Filipino. I wish that you stop the publicity and I wish that we would see more quantitative results from your office.
Senator Grace Poe
Senator Poe really stood out for me after showing the real measure of grace after the election when she was the first to concede in the presidential race. I wish that in the next six years, she would be able to gain more experience in public office that I hope would make her a viable candidate in 2022.
Senator Leila de Lima
I find you outrageous and desperate. I pity that you are not getting enough support from any of your political mates. You definitely gave “saba” a new sexy twist. I just wish that the truth regarding all the accusations against you gets cleared out so, once and for all, you either get cleared or simply go to jail for it. That way, we can all sit down and have a nice merienda of fried “saba”.
The “rock” behind the anti-drug campaign. Saludo po ako sa inyo. It takes a lot of will power and guts to clear the police ranks of its evils. I wish that the Lord gives you strength to put your plans into action. We need you in this country.
Secretary Manny Pinol
Thank you for showing us that it can be done without the pomp and pageantry. You have been the silent worker who has essentially touched the lives of a lot of our fellow Filipinos. You are crucial in making PRRD human to Filipinos on the ground. I wish that you would continue to be a shining example of what a public service should look like – that it is not about you, it is about the people.
You have gone through a lot over the past three years and it is only now that we are seeing the lack of government assistance from the previous administration.
I sincerely wish that you will now get the necessary assistance that the government owes you these past years. I hope that you will get a better life under the PRRD administration. I also wish that ALL government officials responsible for your continued suffering be held accountable and sent to jail.
I STILL do not read or view your blogs but I must admit that the common people are aligned to you. That is a fact that we cannot deny. I wish that you could go beyond just fighting for Duterte but be able to provide a comprehensive look at what we are facing as Filipinos and be able to make common people understand.
People may poke fun at your english but your tweets are not only hilarious but some do make sense. I wish to read more of your tweets and a second volume of your book “Charotism”. Charot!
You can try to hide your colors in the guise of fake patriotism but the smell of your disgrace just seeps out. The people have spoken and you have to accept the fact that things have changed. No amount of hatred and negative publicity can mask your attempt to try to look good.
PRRD is the President so you have got to deal with it now. I believe in constructive criticism but your criticism borders on too much negativity and is based on hatred – plain hatred and defeat.
I wish that the Grupong Dilawan finally accepts the change and the changes that is forthcoming. I wish that you can go beyond mere criticisms to that of criticisms that contribute to nation building. I also wish that you also recognize the good stuff that PRRD has been doing and please stop the no sense nitpicking on Duterte. Lalo kayong nagmumukhang spoiled yellowtards.
To my fellow Dutertards, we have gone through a lot over the past months. Yes, we love PRRD and that we hate the negative publicity that others have thrown at him but we also need to recognize that PRRD is not god.
I wish that we remain vigilant to the fight for a better Philippines under PRRD. I also wish that we learn to balance what we say for PRDD with his imperfections. At please lang… hindi lahat ay pinapatulan.
Former President PNoy
Hmm… please spearhead the distribution of the Luisita land to its respective recipients as accorded by the law. Please abide by the SC’s decision and follow the law.
As for adobongpinoy.wordpress.com, I promise to remain vigilant in the search for a better Philippines.
Having said that, I wish you all the best for 2017 and Happy New Year!
