News freak or not, one can identify Jun Lozada. He is the man behind all the tours and school visits against the Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. He is charming and can cry anytime on camera, gaining a lot of sympathy from the viewing public. He is also backed by almost all opposition senators, politicians, leftists, and rightists because of what he says as ‘he knows about the first family’s alleged participation in the ZTE scam. But we are not born yesterday to believe that this and his celebration will last a lifetime. He is just another ‘man of the hour’ who will end up at the edge of the seat wanting for more.


History will repeat itself and so it does when Lozada’s unending cries over masses are not as attended as before. See what happened in the recent ,a href=””>Easter Mass at St. Josephis College in Quezon Citypamilya.jpg? The thinning crowd is a sign that his followers are now starting to tire of his endless mumbling. He is attacking every palace official he thinks and feels united with his enemies and even accused Cebu Archbishop Ricardo Cardinal Vidal as the leader of his dreamed ‘Archdiocese of Malacanang’. One can understand how stressed and anxious Lozada may be in unveiling his believed ‘truth’ behind the aborted ZTE deal, but emotions must not be the foundation of his accusations. He must also think and act legibly so that what words he’ll let skip in his mouth is also the ‘truth’.


Jun Lozada holds a very critical role in molding our nation and the youth, so he must be sensible enough in all his doings. He must be responsible enough because many looks up to him and what he will say next. I, for one, want the truth to come out but in a more mature way. Let it be in formal for a, which is already happening now in the Sandigan Bayan and the Senate Blue Ribbon hearings. What’s happening is that after these fora, he unties and took off his suit and leads a weary looking group for sympathy. That’s not how a mature man should behave for me. We are a striving nation with more professionalism and decency in ourselves. But then, it is just an opinion I wish to share with no intention of offense.   


It’s so sad that the ZTE deal is more than just a proposed project. It seems that it is a multi-million profit for all those who are pushing it through. I am not a fan of anybody in the government. And I have no plans to tag myself either as an opposition or administration fanatic. I am just one of the many Filipinos who wants to have a good and satisfying life. But how can that be if everyone in the government is trying to blow their horns?

JDV says…Ping Lacson says….Everyone is talking. Everyone wants to be the man of the hour. Why can’t senators deal with their own duties and let the ‘Sandigan Bayan’ or the high courts deal with the ‘scam’? Look, for months now, there had been no light in the ZTE deal. Many are now ‘coming out’ to shed the truth. Let them and let these people be judged by those who are appropriate in doing so. I think, the problem is that everyone wants to have a good time on the spotlight for their own good. You see, those that are going to run in 2010 are the ones who are very much into probing when there is a right place to do that and people to delegate it to.

What I have in mind is that, what happens after the ZTE deal? If GMA is really losing her term, do we get better with whoever gets her seat? I mean let’s face it, whoever sits in the executive seat will still end up nothing and gets nothing because we are already too paranoid with all the cheatings and happenings in politics. Why don’t we just be united and start all over again? That, I think is the best option now. Let’s stop the fight and let the best things to come in our nation. Let your work be worth for all the taxes we, Filipino workers, are paying!
