There’s nothing wrong with being poor, however being poor without preserving to succeed is another thing. The common struggle of Ormoc City’s commuters and drivers alike differs based on how each individual views each struggles respectively.
The revolutionary political era has much started in Ormoc and it’s felt stronger in the political contours that outlines support and loyalty to opposing political parties. People from different social spectrums have emerged not as victorious as what their politicians had promised them even after almost 70 years of being a chartered city, but as somewhere in between the lines of a new level of neediness and sufficiency, hunger and glutton, thirst and fill. What has changed? What have changed? What will be changing?
Ormoc city is scourged with a lot of issues right now; from the complaints of road re-routing, to the big issues of privatization, even until to the environmental pandemonium of cutting down that historic Ormocanon Balete tree. To free the caged elephant in the room, where is Codilla? Or better yet, where are his cronies of political aspirants who wants to help Ormoc city, in the name of their virtue, to progress and help the powerless?
Ormoc has a lot of issues, but one of its massive issue is the rise of idiots in the city.
Look at the streets and you’ll see what I mean when I say the word idiot: From the (1) tricycle driver who doesn’t know how to follow signs and load more passengers even when he still haven’t driven his remaining passengers to their destinations, to the (2) high school and college students who often misspell words and couldn’t even create a simple sentence, up until those who work in the (3) government who are the products of nepotism and stupid political agenda and these (4) government leaders who will sell what the city owns just so they could put something into their accomplishment reports or to (5) my readers who doesn’t know what the hell I’m talking about.
What’s the main point of this brave short? It’s to open the eyes of every Ormocanons that the city NEEDS YOU to use your brain properly. The city is at stake of being an oligarch-owned and local aspiring entrepreneurs will never have the chance to build their own dreams. What the city needs are smart and action-oriented individuals. Ormocanons should start acting like people who could stand on their own feet before it’s too late.
Ormoc City knows that Richard Gomez is an actor, which, resulted to his opposition team using it against him. We all know that one of Codilla’s political slogan goes like: “Ayaw pailad sa artista“. It’s pretty obvious that the Philippines’ political arena is a battle between “low blow” rants and whatnots in order to gain leverage and deface the opposing team to win the election.
As for Gomez, the smartest way to deal with his critics is to face them even without the local media’s support. Gomez should remember that he’s already had an exposure to the media and whatever he does will surely reach the sensationalistic hipster mediamen.
He’s already made a mistake by letting a tabloid company interfere with his works by letting it sugracoat him and feed the people with news to make him look so appealing. Gomez should always keep it in his mind that Ormoc has seen improved things after the previous administration left the political spectrum; bluntly speaking, since he took over the seat. So to Richard Gomez, one of the smartest ways to deal with politics is to answer your critics. (R-Thought)
