Supporters of Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos, most of them anonymous, continue to hurl personal insults against me, and keep on insisting that I shouldn’t blame the governor for the fish kill.
Even though our blogs clearly show that I never blamed the governor in any manner whatsoever. So with your permission, boys and girls, let me play their game.
Since Gov. Vi’s loyalists swear to high heavens that she is as serious as hell in wiping out illegal fish pens, let’s see if she’ll further prove her sincerity with this:
Let the governor PERSONALLY LEAD the demolition of illegal fish pens, especially the ones affected by the fish kill, THROUGHOUT THE PROVINCE.
Vilma in the water, with AS MANY WORKERS AND SECURITY AIDES – whether personal bodyguards or policemen and soldiers – personallu tearing down illegal fish pens
Considering the nature and extent of the tragedy, the illegal dish pens MUST GO A.S.A.P! Let’s see how soon is A.S.A.P as far as the governor and her people are concerned.
A supporter of Vilma sent a comment saying that the fish kill struck before the 90-day grace period given to illegal fish pen owners expired.
But with the fish kill, it would be justified to still observe that deadline and start destroying the illegal fish pens.
If there would be questions on legality, let’s see if the governor will have the initiative to IMMEDIATELY seek remedies with the court just to get rid of the illegal fish pens AT ONCE.
And the most important of all, two points which I had raised right from the start but has never been answered by the governor’s supporters:
Let’s see if the NAMES OF ILLEGAL FISH PEN OWNERS WILL FINALLY BE REVEALED this time.
And charges, or any other LEGAL ACTION, will finally be initiated against them.
To Gov. Vi’s fanatics: ANSWER THESE ISSUES on the illegal fish pen owners first. And READ MY BLOGS, before you MALICIOUSLY ACCUSE me of anything.
To the guy who calls himself Prof. Edu Piano:
HOW DARE YOU accuse me of pointing an accusing finger, of being irrresponsible in my statements and of ‘paninira.’
For a professor (if you really are), how DISAPPOINTING that you apparently did not understand the HIGH SCHOOL ENGLISH that I used in writing my blogs on the governor.
I never accused the governor of anything. Go over my blogs AGAIN.
I asked questions on illegal fish pen owners – their identities, their being unstoppable, charges, if any, which have been filedagainst them and other related issues.
If asking questions is THE SAME as ACCUSING for your NARROW MIND, then that is your problem, and TRAGEDY, NOT MINE. Same thing if trying to clarify matters is the same as an irresponsible statement for your poor comprehension of the English language.
YOU’RE THE ONE WHO’S IRRESPONSIBLE, and UNPROFESSIONAL, for prejudging my character and credibility as a writer WITHOUT THE CIVILITY of asking me CLARIFICATORY QUESTIONS first.
For a professor, SHAME ON YOU! 30
