life in the Philippines, politics

Noynoy Aquino Will Make Bongbong Marcos President

Heaven forbid!

But that’s how and where the political climate in the Philippines is leading given Noynoy Aquino’s penchant for noynoying – vindictive approach of governance, feeling number one hunk of the Philippines through his noynoying of ladies he fancy, active lobbying against people who do not give him what he wants, noynoying (partying) with friends despite the country’s calamities, noynoying for expensive toys from Congress (heard of that bullet proof car?), noynoying (appointing) to government positions friends and classmates from the past…

All these make BongBong Marcos look better, way up better than the current President, only son of media-hyped saint Cory Aquino and Ninoy Aquino. In fairness to the man (and I mean BongBong Marcos), he had been conducting himself fairly in the Senate. He is neither timid nor loud. He speaks with calm and intelligence. He does not appear to be hungering for publicity. And he has his family’s machinery to put him in the front line in the next presidential election.

But despite his (Marcos) personal qualifications and achievements, no more Marcos in the Presidency, please. His claim to the Marcos family name has given him so much already… let him take the downside of it, too.

However, the current state of politics in the Philippines – led by a bratty President – and the kind of President that he is – so falsely represented by the media and the Yellow fanatics – make the Marcos son look more and more level-headed and seemingly qualified.

Heaven forbid!

No thanks Yellows!

    I. Food sufficiency

    A. Green Revolution
    Production of rice was increased
    through promoting the cultivation of IR-8 hybrid rice.
    In 1968 the Philippines became self-sufficient in rice,
    the first time in history since the American period.
    It also exported rice worth US$7 million.

    B. Blue Revolution
    Marine species like prawn, mullet, milkfish,
    and golden tilapia were being produced
    and distributed to farmers at a minimum cost.
    Today, milkfish and prawns contribute
    substantially to foreign exchange income.

    C. Liberalized Credit
    More than one thousand rural banks
    spread all over the country
    resulting to the accessibility of credit
    to finance purchase of agricultural inputs,
    hired labor, and harvesting expenses
    at very low interest rate.
    During 1981-1985, credit was available
    without interest and collateral arrangements.
    Some of the credit programs were the ff:

    1. Biyayang Dagat (credit support for fishermen)
    2. Bakahang Barangay –supported fattening
    of 40,000 head of cattle in farmer backyards
    3. Masaganang Maisan, Maisagana,
    and Expanded Yellow Corn Program
    –supported 1.4 Million farmers
    through P4.7 Billion loans from 1975-1985
    4. Gulayan sa Kalusugan and Pagkain ng Bayan Programs
    –provided grants and loans of P12.4 Million
    to encourage backyard and communal production
    of vegetables and improve nutrition of Filipino households
    5. Kilusang Kabuhayan at Kaunlaran (KKK)—
    supported 25,000 entrepreneurial projects
    through P1.8 Billion and helping 500,000 beneficiaries

    D. Decontrol Program
    Price control polices were implemented on rice and corn
    to provide greater incentive to farmers to produce more.
    Deregulation of trading in commodities like sugar
    and coconut and agricultural inputs like fertilizer
    were done for more efficient marketing and trading arrangements.

    II. Education Reform
    Access to free education widened during the Marcos Administration.
    The biggest portion of the budget
    was allotted for Educational Programs (P58.7 Billion in 20 years).

    The literacy rate climbed
    from 72% in 1965 to 93% in 1985
    and almost 100% in Metro Manila on the same year.

    III. Agrarian Reform
    Tenant’s Emancipation Act of 1972
    or PD 27 was implemented without bloodshed.
    This was the first Land Reform Code our country.
    Since it was implemented until December 1985,
    1.2 million farmers benefited,
    either they became the owner or leaseholder
    in more than 1.3 million hectares of rice and corn lands.

    IV. Primary Health Care
    The Primary Health Care (PHC) Program made medical care
    accessible to millions of Filipinos in the remotest barrios of the country.
    This program was even awarded by United Nations
    as the most effective and most responsive health program among the third world countries.
    With PHC life expectancy increased from 53.7 years in 1965 to 65 years in 1985.
    Infant mortality rate also declined from 73 deaths per 1,000 live births in 1965 to 58 in 1984.

    V. Housing for the masses
    Bagong Lipunan Improvement of Sites and Services (BLISS)
    Housing project had expanded the government’s housing program
    for the low-income group.

    Massive slum upgrading projects have improved
    to 14,000 lots in 1985 from 2,500 in 1976.
    The Tondo foreshore, for instance,
    is one of the biggest and most miserable slum colonies in Asia
    was transformed into a decent community.

    A total of 230,000 housing units were constructed from 1975-1985.
    The laws on socialized housing were conceptualized
    by President Marcos through a series of legal issuances
    from the funding, the lending, mortgaging and to the collection of the loans.
    These are governed by the Home Mutual Development Fund (Pag-Ibig Fund),
    the Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board (HLURB)
    and the National Home Mortgage Finance which remain intact up to the present

    VI. Energy Self-Reliance
    Indigenous energy sources were developed like hydro, geothermal,
    dendrothermal, coal, biogas and biomass.

    The country became the first in Asia
    to use dendrothermal and in five years
    we became number two, next to US, in geothermal utilization.
    The extensive energy resource research and exploration
    and development resulted to reduction of oil imports from 100% in 1965 to 40% in 1985
    and in the same year, more than 1,400 towns and cities were fully energized.

    VII. Export Development
    During 1985 textile and textile products like garments and embroideries,
    furniture and rattan products, marine products like prawns and milkfish,
    raw silk, shoes, dehydrated and fresh fruits
    were exported aside from the traditional export products like coconut,
    sugar, logs, lumber and veneer.
    The maritime industry was also dominated
    by Filipinos wherein 50,000 seamen
    were employed by various world shipping companies.

    VIII. Labor Reform
    The Labor code was promulgated which expanded
    the concerns of the Magna Carta of Labor
    to extend greater protection to labor,
    promote employment, and human resource development.

    The minimum wages of the workers were boosted
    through the guaranteed 13th month pay and cost of living allowances.
    Employment potentials of Filipinos were enhanced through skills training.
    During that time, there were 896,000 out-of-school youths
    and unemployed graduated from various training centers all over the country.

    IX. Unprecedented Infrastructure Growth
    The country’s road network had improved from 55,778 kilometers in 1965
    to 77,950 in five years (1970),
    and eventually reached 161,000 kilometers in 1985.
    Construction of irrigation facilities was also done
    that made 1.5 million hectares of land irrigated
    and increased the farmer’s harvest and income.

    In addition, nationwide telecommunication systems—
    telephone systems, telex exchange too centers,
    and interprovincial toll stations were also built.

    X. Political Reform
    The structure of government established by President Marcos
    remains substantially the same except the change of name,
    inclusive of superficial features in laws,
    to give a semblance of change from that of President Marcos regime.

    The only significant department that was abolished
    after the departure of President Marcos was
    the Department of Ministry of Human Settlements under Imelda Romualdez Marcos.
    It was dismantled but the functions were distributed to different offices.

    XII. Fiscal Reform
    Government finances were stabilized
    by higher revenue collections
    and loans from treasury bonds,
    foreign lending institutions and foreign governments.

    XI. Peace and Order
    In 1966, more than 100 important smugglers were arrested;
    in three years 1966-68 they arrested a total of 5,000.
    Military men involved in smuggling were forced to retire.
    Peace and order significantly improved in most provinces
    however situations in Manila and some provinces continued to deteriorate
    until the imposition of martial law in 1972.

    What ever happened to these?
    Did the suceeding administration just forego these just because it had Marcos’ signature?
    These,though made in the 1970’s address problems that we are facing today.
    Had these not been abolished and maintained for the last 30 or so years, things may be so much different.


    And the list goes on and on and on…..

    (to be continued)

    Although Marcos was branded as dictator, corrupt, human rights violator by fictional tales
    passed on from generation to generation and his achievements were expunged subtly
    by the manipulation of mass media and vindictiveness of the administration that succeeded him,
    the impacts of his interventions remained and are undeniably germane part of our country’s system.
