The Supreme Court (SC) decision basing the value of Hacienda Luisita (HL) on 1989 rates instead of 2006 which Pnoy’s relatives had wanted sends a strong message to the President.
He can’t SCARE, and DICTATE on, the High Tribunal.
If you will recall, there were widespread talks of more justices lined up for impeachment after Chief Justice Renato Corona was hauled to the Senate Impeachment Court by the House of Representatives.
Singled out were justices perceived as loyal in one way or another to Corona.
But in the voting on the HL valuation, eight justices led by Corona voted to uphold the court’s earlier ruling using 1989 real estate rates as basis for computing how much should Pnoy’s relatives get for the hacienda.
To hell with impeachment threats, or what Pnoy and his relatives had asked for the Hacienda.
And to give more flesh to their independence and adherence to the rule of law, the SC issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) on the government’s purchase of the PCOS machines intended for the 2013 elections.
If Pnoy, and his advisers, know what’s good for him, he’ll stop attacking the SC with BASELESS tirades and start RESPECTING the judiciary’s independence.
Somebody had better hammer into his head that whether he likes it not, it’s the law which the SC will follow in their actions and decisions, and not what he wants.
He may be the President but HE’S NOT THE LAW! Unless he’ll proclaim himself as DICTATOR.
And in case Pnoy intensifies his attacks on Corona and the SC instead of respecting their decision like a TRUE STATESMAN and gentleman, time to start thinking, people, if he still deserves to be president.

LATEST SWS SURVEY AN INVITE TO CHAOS!
Consider this: If it is chaos they want they probably will get chaos since they are the ones in power. However, chaos involves people of all kinds on BOTH sides. It is preposterous to think that we on the opposite side will just lie down and have their way with us. So I say, let them have their chaos and see what really happens.

On PTV 4's special forum last March 6, actor Pen Medina said there must be a people power if ever Corona is acquitted. He said we are the boss. Mr. Medina, NOT IN OUR NAME!
SW Susmaryosep surveys!

You can see that there is a build-up to the continuation of the IC (impeachment case) very soon. That is the reason why the "desperate surveys" are coming out. The truth is that Corona will be acquitted and the public will not react. There is no such thing as people power used for selfish reasons, a people power used to protect an idiot like Abnoy!
As I had posted earlier, these surveys are a lot of bull...t. People power?Hah, who will these people be- -- the likes of Juana "Botcha" change, the laos Leah Navarro, and the has been Jim Paredes with the multicolored hair of CCT-DSWD. Weh!!! Matulog na lang ako at sana pagkagising iba na ang nakaupo.

Hogwash! People no longer believe in SWS surveys! What people power....only the jaundice freaks resort to mob rule!!
DROPPING BID FOR CORONA INHIBITION MYSTERIOUS!
You are right Boyet - this development bears watching. Keep your ears to the ground. A lot of backroom negotiations may be taking place, just what exactly is the question.
ANTI-CORONA FACTIONS PANICKY, DESPERATE!
Hoy, SWS, ano palagay mo sa amin mga uto-uto? 30
