Noynoy, a year after

Among other things, he promised that under his government, the corrupt Arroyo administration will be held accountable. He promised a government that will no longer be “manhid (insensitive)” to the needs of the people and that the people will be “boss.” He boasted of a government which will tread the “tuwid na daan (straight path)” and that because of all this, “pwede na ulit mangarap (we can dream again)”.

Have things changed? Things have remained pretty much the same: the Arroyos are still in government, tuwid na daan has led to nowhere, but has brought KKK (Kaklase, Kabarilan, Kakampi) to power; and for the majority of the people who are as poor as ever, things have gone from bad to worse.
