Hey, Pro-Life People

What happened to your "Thou shalt not kill" placards? You made a big deal about them during the reproductive health law debates. You were very concerned about the state giving its imprimatur to killing the unborn and the yet-to-be-fertilised. I would've thought you'd be equally concerned about the state giving its imprimatur to killing the born.

Apostles' Creed

I believe in the President almighty, bringer of life and death.

I believe in the War on Drugs, His central cause, ours too.
Drugs were perpetrated by drug lords, borne by pushers, consumed by addicts;
have corrupted, co-opted, and compromised society.
We have descended into hell.
In the previous administration the drug trade rose again;
they peddled it from prison, seated drug lords in government;
they will come again to blight the living and the dead.

I believe in the righteousness of killing criminals,
the infallible packing tape and cardboard,
the curse of human rights monitors,
the conspiracy of yellow-tinted media,
the narcopolitical opposition,
and the final victory of the President, everlasting.


Doomed to repeat it

There was a time when the mere allegation of Marcosian tendencies was enough to make a politician back down from authoritarian leanings. Now, politicians are openly suggesting the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus, a constitutional dictatorship, and a remilitarisation of the police.
