The week in Philippine history was a circus

The recent weeks in the Philippine history was suddenly in commotion- all because of former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (GMA). Even Joseph Estrada's incarceration, also a former president, was overshadowed by the events of GMA's. She had it big time.

But a lawyer named Ariel Salvador Magno summarized the week in just ten points. I could not agree more.
  1. Supreme Court can be ignored.
  2. It’s not true that we have three co-equal branches of government. The Executive is the most powerful branch. It can do no one.
  3. Congress... is Congress. Res Ipsa Loquitor (The thing speaks for itself, for us who do not know this lawyer's talk haha).
  4. The Bill of Rights applies only to the good ones not the evil ones.
  5. Karma is so powerful.
  6. If you did not do your job, blame others, especially the Supreme Court.
  7. No matter how powerful you were or still are, you will be held accountable!
  8. Institutions in the Philippines... wait what institutions?
  9. The end justifies the means.
  10. Some are more righteous than others. We are doing the same wrong things that you did but this time it’s us who are doing them, so tama lang.
