Senator Risa Hontiveros Wants August 21 Declared As Marcial Bonifacio Day

633B707D-9B04-4874-AE58-D6AA8FCE7639MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Fresh from her much-publicized proposal to declare August 16 as Kian Lloyd Delos Santos Day, Senator Risa Hontiveros has yet another brilliant legislative suggestion.

(Delos Santos was killed in anti-illegal drugs operation by Caloocan police a year ago.)

Hontiveros wants August 21 declared as ‘Marcial Bonifacio Day,’ to commemorate the assassination of Ninoy Aquino.

The lady Senator told The Adobo Chronicles that all our laws should accurately reflect history. “When Ninoy was killed in 1983, he held a passport bearing the name Marcial Bonifacio, so any hero’s tribute should be based on fact.”

For a change, we agree with Hontiveros.

F647EC61-DF8D-424A-9DB4-6F7E3F871B4FMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It must have been a slow news day at Rappler.  Either that or its CEO Maria Ressa was just having a bad hair day.

In a tweet, Rappler asked netizens to submit some bad poems in celebration of Bad Poetry Day. What they got were some brilliant responses — not just from ordinary netizens but famous personalities, including Vice President Leni Robredo, former PNoy spokesperson Edwin Laciera, and popular blogger Mark Lopez.

Here are some of the responses received by Rappler:

Duterte Critic Vicky Garchitorena: ‘Friends Na Kami Ni PRRD’

2CCF7C9D-44ED-44B1-92C4-4DFCE7E403F9MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Staunch Duterte critic Vicky Garchitorena and Kris Aquino have one thing in common: Friends na sila ni PRRD.

Many will recall Aquino’s words, “friends na kami ni PRRD” after the President’s Special Assistant Bong Go apologized to her over Asec Mocha Uson’s post showing the late Ninoy Aquino being kissed by women.

Now, Yellowtard Garchitorena whose tweets are always hopelessly critical of Duterte, has finally posted a comment which was in total agreement with the President: punish the corrupt in government.
