Oslo, Norway (The Adobo Chronicles) – Call it Karma, but for Philippine President NoyNoy Aquino, what goes around comes around.

In one of the most controversial moves by a sitting president, Aquino snubbed multi-awarded actress Nora Aunor, excluding her from the short list of nominations for the National Artists Award. This, despite a unanimous nod for Aunor by the national nominating commiittee.

Responding to the mounting criticism of the snub, Aquino issued a statement that his decision to exclude Aunor was because of the actress’ drug possession charge in Los Angeles, California years ago. “It is a moral issue,” Aquino said.

In a weird turn of events, the nominating committee for the prestigious Nobel Prace Prize informed the Philippine government that Aquino can not be nominated for the prize on moral grounds, particularly his chain-smoking. There is speculation that the Aquino administration wanted the president nominated for this year’s peace prize.

“Smoking kills. Second-hand smoke kills,” the Oslo committee said, “so there is no way a person who causes death can ever be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.”

  1. that’s good, no nobel peace prize for president benigno s. Aquino, that’s karma for him for eliminating the nomination for national artist nora aunor, God will answer for nora aunor-what the fans were not able to fight for her cause -to get that title as national artist coz pres. Aquino says so no to her, as his sister kris Aquino do to, but God will give the answer to those who are against nora aunor getting that national artist title. God Bless Nora Aunor-she deserves that title, siguro when a new president of the phils will be elected-she might get it.
