Bets dared: ‘Present platforms, not rhetoric’Sounds good so far, right? More substance and less meaningless nonsense! That is exactly what we need! But read on...
MANILA, Philippines -- A handful of demonstrators from the Sanlakas (One Force) party list picketed the offices of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) Tuesday and called on candidates to present platforms instead of rhetoric.
“Plataporma, hindi paporma [Platforms, not posturing],” they chanted during the picket held a day after the deadline for the filing of certificate of candidacy for senatorial candidates, most of whom tried to outdo each other in drawing the most attention."Boom corrupt corrupt" is not substance, it is absolutely meaningless. These guys are excreting the exact same flavor of bullshit that they claim to be campaigning against.
The demonstrators reworded “Boom tarat-tarat,” a catchy tune popularized in a noontime show thus: “Boom corrupt, corrupt. Kadiri [Revolting], kadiri, boom, boom, boom.”
