FULL VIDEO: Senator Miriam Santiago’s privilege speech
Posted on

I wasn’t home while this was happening earlier this afternoon, but on the way to the bank and a meeting.
I had to listen on the radio and wished I could see Senator Miriam’s facial expression while giving her speech.
I can relate to her chronic fatigue syndrome, so I know that making this speech took a lot from her.
When you’re sick and tired it’s so easy to let evil people just get away with things because it’s the easiest thing to do.
Just mind your own business and live your own life.

I get bothered when people say everything that happens is God’s will and is meant to be. If that’s the case then should we just let things unfold and do nothing? How do you explain the Holocaust—was that God’s plan?
While listening to the speech in our car’s radio, all I could think of is how old is Enrile and at his age he should be preparing to meet his Maker.
I also thought I should stop patronizing Delimondo corned beef.

What Senator Miriam did today was brave because in our culture, the majority of evil people get away with shit and get celebrated. That’s why the Philippines remains high on the corruption index.
Only God knows what will happen to Enrile and his allies. I’m just glad it won’t take very long. The man is after all 89 years old.
Watch while Enrile plays Candy Crush and tell me what you think.

My friend Yodel and I were just talking about Herschel bags earlier and its simple, lightweight, cool designs.
By coincidence, my cousin RJ posted this image in his Instagram account


I immediately went to the site and ordered two backpacks for my older boys.
