Two things are getting clearer and clearer as the
Mindanao power crisis drags on:
Pnoy is BLACKMAILING MINDANAOANS into paying more for electricity to private power firms while PROTECTING THE INCOMPETENTS who have either MISEARBLY FAILED or DELIBERATELY IGNORED the problem since his administration took over.
Mindanao power summit, Pnoy
bluntly told the participants: “There are only two choices: pay a little more
for energy, or live with the rotating brownouts.”
Pnoy DID NOT IDENTIFY even one person who must explain why the power problem worsened to crisis proportions. But he REPEATEDLY SAID, , LIKE A BROKERN CD, that Mindanaoans should pay more for electricity so that private investors will come in to ensure a steady power supply.
Look at these excerpts from his speech in the summit as quoted in at least two leading broadsheets today, April 14:
“The simple truth is: you will have to pay more.”
“You have to pay a real price for a real service. … You have to pay a little more for the current and future health of the energy sector in
Mindanao.” “Prices will increase; and you need to play
your part.” “Paying a little more for energy
will enable us to ensure a stable supply of power for the future of the
region.” “We have to get more plants here … But how can you entice
anyone to invest if their generating cost is more than their selling cost?”
Pnoy revealed that
energy production capacity is 1,280 megawatts (MW) but peak demand is at 1,300
MW, resulting in a 20 MW shortage and the absence of the 150 MW reserve margin.
He had no explanation for the shortage, and did not name who was responsible for it.
At least three solutions were brought up by Pnoy in the summit – the P2.6 billion rehabilitation of the Agus 6 hydroelectric plant, the P7.24 billion rehabilitation of river basins and the long-delayed P6-billion rehabilitation of the Agus-Pulangi stations.
But Pnoy did not say WHY all these HAVE NOT BEEN DONE in the almost two years that he has been president.
Energy Sec. Jose Rene Almendras admitted that ”We assume the responsibility that we have failed. That is my responsibility. That is my failure. We had plans, we did very good planning, we were unable to execute the plans in the appropriate timing that it was supposed to be done. There were a lot of challenges.”
But remember, people, Almendras was IMMEDIATELY CLEARED by Malacanang of any liability for the crisis when it started getting national attention. Neither did he reveal; what those challenges were!
To Mindanaoans and to everyone else: There’s a LOT MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE in the power crisis. Insisting on finding out who’s to blame and a LOT MORE DETAILS to justify the hell you’re going through, and will plunge deeper into, once you start paying higher power bills.
If nobody will be accountable for the Mindanaa power crisis, NOBODY ELSE will be held responsible by Pnoy’s government for any other power crisis ANYWHERE in the future. And we, the helpless consumers, will have to bear all the bullshit!

I never even knew the name Raissa Robles till she became popular as a basher of
She has no credibility whatsoever as a journalist because of her one-sidedness.
Any journalist worth his salt will thoroughly research everything before
presentation. She is just bold and indiscriminate with her blogging because the
law on libel hasn't been successfully tested yet when it comes to cyberspace. Corona
Shame on you, Raissa Robles. Nagpapasikat ka ba?

A PT in the
can earn as much as $100,000 per year, and that's only for a newcomer...I know
because my sister is a manager in a recruitment agency sending medical professionals
to the ,
including PTs. US
She is a real example of an ‘envelopmental’ journalist.
There should be a crusade against this woman and let the press club be accountable also for not castigating this so called journalist... so they will be forced to discredit this rumormonger.
Robles is just another paid hack. Prostitution Journalism is what she does.
Stupiid bitch, bayaran Robles,
You meant Strike 66, right?

Siguro kumuha pa ng Masteral sa PAGSISINUNGALING ang Raissa Robles na ito . Raissa Robles, kung itinuturing mong isa kang journalist responsibilidad mo na icheck ang buong katotohanan patungkol sa mga isinusulat mo . . .

A real big slap for you, Raissa! Hope you read this! Shame on you!
ALEX VERSOZA of
With the level of how she is touted as an investigative journalist, there is no allowance for oversight. She fully knows what she has been doing - including those with deliberate malice, so it seems.

Is this Raissa Robles for sale? I mean her dignity as a comics writer.

Instead of slap, how about a kick?
She’s not even funny!

Kahit slap pa natin ng ilang beses ang mukha niya,di mamumula yun dahil sobrang kapal na talaga yun. Ang kinabubuhay niya ang ang manira ng ibang tao kahit walang basehan.
