Bobong Botante

Ang bobong botante.

(Paalala, may mga salitang di ka nais-nais mabasa o marinig) 

Ito ay nakasulat sa wikang pambansa upang maunawaan ng mas nakakarami ang aking balak ipahiwatig. Ito ang mga sintomas na ikaw ay isang bobong botante at walang kwentang mamamayan. Pasensiya na sa mga salitang yan, pero kung tinamaan ka, di ko na problema yon.

Isa kang bobong botante kung madalas o minsan nasasabi mo ang mga ito tuwing panahon ng eleksyon:

  1. Wala namang magbabago, di na ako boboto.” –- Oo, tama ka! Walang magbabago dahil napakatamad mo, pagboto lang di mo pa magawa? Hindi mo ba alam na napakaswerte mo kung malaya at may karapatan kang bumoto? Yung mga tao sa ibang bansa, hanggang ngayon, umiiyak, nakayuko dahil wala silang kalayaang pumili kung sino ang gusto nilang iluklok sa pwesto. Tapos ikaw, sasayangin mo lang dahil pakiramdam mo walang magbabago? Simulan mong magbago ng mentalidad sa pagboto, makikita mo ang pagbabagong hangad mo.

  2. Di ko naman kilala yang mga yan, bahala na sa eleksyon.” – – Di mo kilala? Aba, eh di kilalanin mo! Marunong kang magbasa diba? Marunong kang magsulat? May kamag-anak kang nag-aaral, marunong mag surf sa internet diba? Alamin mo kung sino sa tingin mo ang karapat-dapat na umupo sa pwesto. Ipagtanong mo kung sino sila, kilatisin mo. Bakit mo sasabihing bahala na sa eleksyon, tapos pag na-badtrip ka sa binoto mo kasi walang kwenta, magrereklamo ka. May utak ka para mag-isip. Lahat tayo may kapasidad para kilatisin ang bawat isa.

  3. Boboto ko siya, mukhang mabait at matulungin eh. Gwapo/Maganda pa!” (Artista at mga kilalang personalidad) – Naks naman, ano to “Search for the most pleasing personality?” Di porke’t mukhang mabait at sa tingin mo matulungin, eh yun na yung totoong pagkato niyan. Kilatisin mo kung totoo ba talaga, na kahit wala sa pwesto, walang camera oh walang nakakakita eh talagang mabait sila. Tska, mabait nga at matulungin, magtaka ka baka pag nasa pwesto na yan, lahat ng tulong eh ibibigay sa mga kaibigan. Yung tipong hindi maka-hindi kahit alam na mali. Tska iba ang nasa TV sa totoong buhay. Maging mapanuri ka dapat.

  4. Sayang ang boto ko, di naman mananalo yan.” – Dito ko badtrip na badtrip. Oo, sayang ang boto mo kasi kung yun boto mo eh ibinigay mo dun sa karapat-dapat eh di sana puro tamang lider ang mga nasa pwesto ngayon. Bilib na bilib ka sa surveys? Eh ang bobo mo. Bakit mo itutulad yung pagiisip mo dun sa mga sumagot sa survey? Wala ka bang utak? Wala ka bang sariling isip? Susundin mo din sinabi sayo ni Pastor o ni Father o kung sino mang may awtoridad sa relihiyon mo? Sige, pero kung sa tingin mo may mali sa mga kandidatong inendorso nila, aba mag-isip isp ka. May free-will tayo. May kanya-kanya tayong utak at balota sa araw ng eleksyon. Isip isip din pag may time.

  5. Siya na lang, gusto ko kasi vision ng Nanay at Tatay niya.” – – Anong vision? Pareho sila ng mga mata? Pareho sila ng isip? Walang ganon! Di porke’t mula sila sa pamilya ng mga politiko eh sila na ang karapat-dapat. Mabahala ka kung halos lahat sila eh nasa pwesto na nang gobyerno. Di na paglilingkod-bayan yan! Pagtatakip-butas na yan. Gusto nila, sila na lang ang nasa pwesto para mapagtakpan ang anomalyang ginawa at gagawin nila. Obserbahan mo, ilampung-taon na sila sa pwesto? May nangyari ba? Pareho nga sila ng apelyido, pero may napatunayan na ba? Katulad ng isa diyan, namatay lang si Mommy, tumakbo na. Syempre yung mga bobong botante, naawa. Ayun, panalo! Tapos eto pa, yung nakulong na, aba! Nag #2 pa! Susmaryosep na mga botante to!

Wag tayong maging bobo. Lagi na lang tayong, “ay mabait yan. Uy mukhang di corrupt.” Diba pwede namang “Magaling yan! Matalino yan! Ay, talagang totoo sinasabi niyan. Sa (insert city/province), pag pumunta ka, talgang ibang iba. Napakaayos. Siya nga nagpatupad ng ganito, ganon….” Siguro pwede naman? Kaya yang mga kandidatong yan, kahit alam nilang nanloloko lang sila eh laging kasali dahil malakas ang loob nilang mananalo sila dahil sa pagkakaalam nila eh bobo tayo. Nakakbadtrip diba? Ako, di na ko papayag na ganon ang isipin nila. Hindi ako bobo. Oo, sige sabihin na nilang magaling ako, na ang yabang ko, pero sa pagkakataong ito. Di ako papa-uto sa kanila dahil hindi ako bobong botante. Ikaw, bobong botante ka ba?

O, tanong nga ni Vice Ganda:

Nancy Binay is offending me

Image

Nancy Binay is offending me because maybe she thinks I…

 

1. am A name-recall-voter – maybe she thinks and assumes every Filipino looks up to his Dad who happens to be the former Mayor of Makati City and now a Vice President who also kept on bragging how ‘he himself’ made Makati the way it is today. And that by having a Binay last name would automatically grant her a Senate seat. Wait, isn’t she married? Then why not use her husband’s last name? Oh, let’s ask the real people of Makati, what Makati really is like before and during the Binay regime?

2. am Illiterate – That I cannot read nor write to research her credentials and track records (if there’s any). Or maybe she thinks we are a family of illiterates who does the “pick-a-boom” selection during elections.

3. love Campaign Ads – that I will be persuaded by her TVC which shows how motherly she can be in the Senate. Excuse me, last time I checked, there’s no nursery there that badly needs breastfeeding and diapers.

4. am hungry for flowery words – “Education to Employment.” If this is true, then why not emancipate herself from her father’s arms and start having her own? She has the education, why not go out and look for her own employment? “Kay Nancy Binay, mga bata gaganda ang buhay.” Oh, last time I was in Makati, I ended up tweeting DSWD. Why? Oh yes, street children. “Nanay de Pamilya.” – this line is a joke. Seriously.

5. believe in surveys – that I have the mentality to only vote for those who are in the top 12 because my vote will be wasted if I will still vote for those who are in the 13th and below spots. Guess what, I do NOT believe in any politically/campaign motivated surveys. Surveys have lots of factors and so as statistics. Results can be predicted and modified based on the different variables or data supplied. Oh well, I need not to go further.

6. am Stupid – I am under the impression that maybe she is assuming that I am stupid, idiot and a moron that I have no capacity to think who I should vote for. Well, I am not. I am a smart voter and please read number 7.

7. will vote for her – because she looks nice. Please. Of course, I will NOT vote for her. Again, I am NOT voting Nancy Binay. I am not going to vote for someone who claims that she is so concerned with the protection of the mothers and infants and at the same time is an anti-RH law. Contradicting yourself ma’am, really? I am also NOT going to vote for someone who said that she is not in favor of divorce because, and I quote: ”Will divorce give jobs? Will it mean more food for people?…” Wow! Talk about apples versus oranges. Again and again, I will NOT vote for Nancy Binay because she cannot even present herself in public debates/forums to showcase her intellect. Being in the senate will expose a person to rigid intellectual discourse. If she cannot even once, attend and participate in any debate, what will she do in the Senate then? Sit in the corner and sip a hot steaming chamomile tea? Or will she only talk when she has her notes, script? Please, we already have several senators doing it now, I don’t need another one. I am NOT going to vote for Nancy Binay simply because she is not qualified to be on my list  of Senators. She did not meet my required qualifications to become one. She simply failed.

And for those of you who keeps on defending her that she is not the one to be blamed for running because she was just convinced by her Dad, please! She’s already 39yo, can’t she decide on her own? can’t she think on her own? She is her own self. She is she. She presents herself that she can give employment to everyone when she herself doesn’t have a real job on her own. All these criticisms hurt? Oh yes, sure it does. Daddy should’ve warned her. Or maybe Daddy was very assuring that she will win. Well, let’s see.
