SONA aftershock

I personally opted not to watch GMA's SONA yesterday though the t.v was just near my reach. I dunno', though I was being apathetic not to divulge myself over national concerns, still my nerve couldn't help but react with such dread when talking about government and political issues. However still I couldn't hide from its view..I cannot simply cover my ears to choose from what I only wanted to hear to what I actually hear around me. These are just some of the major reactions from the people of the Philippines after the SONA:

a. The use of English language in some part of her speech.
(oo nga naman..don't wanna elaborate, self-explanatory!)
b. Her expression of concern to the farmers.( hmm..really?)
c. The one peso split into halve per txt. msg.
( ano yan?parang kendi binigay sa'tin then silent nalang?)
d.Boldly reasoning out the "good"(?)(ill-) effect of VAT( Value Added Tax).
(ayokona!)

For a government like ours I wonder what is that SONA for?

The SONA sadly has degenerated into nothing more than just another piece of government propaganda aiming to convince us that life is a lot better than what we're actually experiencing.

I can't wait for GMA to leave office. She's an awful leader with one of the worst political instincts I've seen in any Philippine president. Just plain awful.
