Isko Moreno believes government positions should not be inherited

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

'I will not vote for somebody who will just inherit the position' — Mayor Isko on 2022 presidential elections 

Yep. It's not inherited. That's a fact. People vote candidates into the position. If Sara runs for president, it's up to the people if they will vote for her. However, we see how powerful these politicians have become after gaining authority, influence and wealth after their stint as a government official. They made the government their business. Kapit tuko sa kapangyarihan, ayaw ng bitawan, dahil malaki ang kitaan.

On Duterte naming him as one of his choices for the Presidency, Isko  says, “If I decide to run, I’ll decide on my own not because i’m endorsed by somebody or one group, I dont want want to be part of divisiveness”  

Isko  revealed  that he is running in the 2022 elections but he has yet to decide for which position. Isko said that for now, he is focused in fulfilling his obligation to his constituents amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Back in 2019, immediately after Isko was sworn in as Manila mayor, he was visited by PH’s top tycoons. He didn’t get this kind of treatment when he ran for Senate in 2016 where he lost. First thing that came to mind, ah, he’s being eyed as political pawn. 

And we are witness to how Isko seems to be acting like a responsible Mayor who is constantly beautifying the  places of Manila. But we also see him not going against popular opinions contradicting the Duterte administration. He is doing what traditional politicians are doing - aligning with the current power but still making an effort to enhance his image. 

Yet he is nothing compared to Vico Sotto of Pasig. The only negative about Vico is being connected as a relative of Tito Sotto, another trapo who is siding with the current administration. Tito Sotto has more dirt in his reputation that he is not good to be seen with Vico. In fact, the Sotto last name is not something to be proud of. We don't need another showbiz character, or even boxers, in the government. In fact, we should not allow celebrities to run for government positions. Our standards for our officials should be the same as how we recruit for professionals in private companies. Qualified and with experience to boast. The government should not be their learning grounds. We deserve more than popularity.

Looks like Isko is already predicting a landslide win for Sara Duterte. He shouldn’t describe it as “inherited” if she does win because the election would make it legit. There is no law against Sara running in the first place. 

You are most probably stupid if you still believe another Duterte is worth the vote. What has Sara done for the country that would make her worthy of the position. She just inherited his position as Mayor of Davao since there is nobody willing to go against the Duterte dynasty who has controlled Davao for several years already.

Would another Duterte be good for the country? Never! We've witnessed how incompetent Diving was. What more with her daughter who also has a bad reputation of beating up a sheriff.

Ayaw daw pangunahan ni Isko ang taumbayan sa pagpili ng kanilang lider but he hopes they will not be called stupid. Ang posisyon sa gobyerno, hindi minamana. Hindi daw niya iboboto yon.

Isko says government posts 'not inherited in a democratic company. But how would we get the rightful leader when dynasties have made government positions as part of their inheritance? Pass -pasa at ipinamamana by letting their relatives run in their behalf while we still see the previous leaders in control of their puppets. Just as how we see Isko as nothing more but a puppet of those tycoons willing to support him financially just to keep an upper hand. With millions of Filipinos in the country how come there's only a few candidates?

Be careful of idolizing your Mayor Isko, that pattern happened once when a Davao mayor run. Be careful with populists, they are the typical trapos who are evolving with the times 

Jollibee now serves crispy fried towels

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

Jollibee has ordered the temporary closure of its Bonifacio - Stop Over branch in BGC, Taguig City following the “fried towel” incident that made rounds online.

Why just one branch, when there's a possibility that the breaded towel could have come fromtheir commissary.

Jollibee chicken is already in marinated packs, blast frozen and delivered to branches ready for frying.  It’s not like they have batter lying around for a towel to fall into and fry it. 

I also used to work for Jollibee during my college days as a service crew. Basically, the batter and breading for chickens is not done at the store, unless their process has changed and if ever they did, it's easy to trace who did it. But how come it's taking Jollibee a long time to announce the result of their investigation. They don't need three days because every crew is monitored as per assigned task per day. Unless they are trying to paint this incident in a better picture. There must have been either negligence or fault or prank among their crew and they are being very careful of their announcement.

#FactCheck: This image originates from a Facebook meme page. McDonald’s never posted the advertisement on any of its digital platforms or on social media.  

I really want to know how the towel ended up being perfectly marinated, battered and fried.

That could have not happened at the store. Maybe because it's the pandemic and the company has changed its methods of food preparation to make the process more sustainable especially when they are trying to earn as much after having to close down some branches and decrease in sales due to lockdowns and Quarantines that resulted in less customers.

Green is the official color of their towels used for cleaning so there's a big chance that the towel.really got mixed with the battered chickens which are already pre- cut and packed upon reaching the branches.

Since the time of delivery was late at night, it could have been neglected since there very few crew during that shift.

Tom Sawyer's marketing team is taking advantage of the hype. I never knew there was a restaurant of such here in the country.  Mas kilala pa rin si Mcdonalds at Jollibee

That fried towel from jollibee has more implications. it didn't go near the assembly line by chance - ginagamit siya doon. for cleaning which means most probably madumi yon at the time of preparation, & the other chicken it was with got contaminated. So dapat lahat ng umorder ng ChickenJoy that day ay magreklamo. Magkusa na dapat ang Jollibee to reach out to all that got chickens that day

Whatever is the cause, we should be rallying in support of the employees (service crew) which are mostly overworked working students who still needs to go to school before or after their shift. I'm sure they don't want to lose their jobs as every peso counts for these students who are supporting themselves to keep themselves in school.

The fried towel incident requires investigation & reparation, but I don't think it's enough reason for anyone to doubt the standards of Jollibee as a whole just because of 1 incident. It's just Murphy's Law in play. There's no such thing as flawless service. On the other hand there could be more happening within their branches that needs to be scrutinized further.

Let us not think of Jollibee as a Filipino brand but it is owned by people of Chinese heritage. Just like how our country has been overran by the Chinese who setup their businesses in our country and became richer than Filipinos. The company is not something to be proud of. It is a sad reminder that foreigners have conquered our country and  made it their source of wealth. Why are they richer than the real natural-born Filipinos. What is wrong with Filipinos for patronizing foreign-owned companies instead of locally owned?

Boosting Road Safety Campaigns and Initiatives Amid Pandemic

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

Department of Transportation (DOTr) Sec. Art Tugade called for cooperation and solidarity in the promotion of road safety during the Recognition of Road Safety Partners by the Land Transportation Office (LTO) Region 1 today, 20 May 2021.

Attended by more than 70 local government units (LGUs) in Region 1, the virtual recognition is in commemoration of Global Road Safety Week and is part of the Decade of Action for Road Safety.

In his message, Sec. Art Tugade stressed that road safety is one of the important campaigns of the DOTr with as many as 12,000 Filipinos losing their lives every year to road crashes according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

For Region 1 alone, according to the Land Transportation Office (LTO), almost 1,500 road crashes were recorded in 2020. Some 3,700 individuals were also involved in road crashes. Of those involved in road crashes, 177 were killed.

“Hihintayin pa ba natin na mahal natin sa buhay ang maaksidente, masugatan o mamatay? Kailangan bang makurot tayo ng tadhana? ‘Wag po. ‘Pagkat masakit ang mawalan ng mahal sa buhay. Meron ‘ho akong anak na namatay. Ang sakit pong bitbitin. He was then 12 years old, he should have been 46. But up to now, the pain and the hurt of realizing that my loved one is lost is bothering me, has been haunting me,” Sec. Art Tugade said.

“Ayaw ko na unworthy ang mga sasakyan. Ayaw ko ang driver na walang disiplina. Ayaw ko ang mga pedestrian na hindi sumusunod sa batas. Pag dumating si kamatayan at mahal natin sa buhay ang tamaan, malulungkot at maghihinagpis tayo. ‘Wag nating antayin ‘yun. Tama na ang mga aksidente. Tama na ‘yung patay. Tama na ang pag violate sa rules and regulations. Safety is important. Safety is non-negotiable,” the DOTr Secretary added.

Moreover, Sec. Tugade said local leaders have a bigger responsibility in advancing the safety and welfare of their constituents. He also urged the local chief executives of Region 1 to further push for road safety through strengthened cooperation with the DOTr and its attached agencies.

“Anuman ang gawin ng Kagawaran kasama ang LTO at LTFRB, kung hindi ‘ho makikipag kapit-bisig sa amin ang LGU, mahihirapan kami. Ngunit kung tayo’y magkakapit-bisig, ‘yung mahirap ay magiging madali, ‘yung problema ay mawawala. Kaya importanteng magsama-sama tayo,” the Transportation Chief said.

Meanwhile, Sec. Art Tugade also told LGU officials that the DOTr supports the #Love30 campaign, which calls for motorists to drive at a slower speed, specifically 30 kilometers per hour, in crowded areas.

“Mayroong inilunsad na #Love30. Ito ay isang proyekto ng World Health Organization at United Nations na kung saan kinikilala nila na ang kikitil at tatagpas sa buhay ay ‘yung speed. Sana ho magtulungan tayo, hindi lang LTO o LTFRB, kasama natin ang pamahalaang lokal, kapit-bisig tayo. Because we alone cannot do it but together, with the LGU, we can make a difference,” Tugade stated.

Apart from promoting road safety in this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sec. Art Tugade also emphasized the need to strictly adhere to health and safety protocols and understand the importance of vaccination.

“Dapat ‘wag nating kalimutan ngayong panahon ng pandemya – ng COVID-19 ‘yung mga tinatawag na health protocols. Usaren tayo ti (Gamiting natin ang) facemask. Usaren tayo ti (Gamiting natin ang) face shield. Maintain natin ‘yung social distancing. Haan tayo mangan (‘Wag tayo kumain), haan tayo ag sao (‘wag tayo magsalita), haan tayo duratatot habang agbyabyahe (‘wag tayong makipag-usap habang nagbibyahe) tayo on public transportation,” Sec. Art Tugade said.
