    Damaged culture breeds idiots

    Barely 10 days before the May 2010 Philippine presidential elections, vice-presidential candidate Jojo Binay found himself 9 points behind in the polls to front-runner Mar Roxas when photos of him cavorting in Australia with his alleged mistress surfaced in the Internet. Binay readily admitted the extramarital affair to the press claiming that he was “just a human being capable of committing mistakes”. Binay went on to win the vice-presidency.
    Having an extramarital affair can prove politically fatal in the United States as former U.S. Sen. John Edwards learned after the National Enquirer exposed his dalliance with filmmaker Rielle Hunter, with whom he fathered a child. Edwards was forced to withdraw from the 2008 race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
    In the damaged culture universe of the Philippines, however, such indiscretions are considered normal. Despite widespread public knowledge of his philandering ways, former Pres. Joseph “Erap” Estrada still placed second to Noynoy Aquino in the 2010 presidential elections. His official Wikipedia biography even lists his children with Dr. Luisa “Loi” Pimentel, Guia Gomez, Laarni Enriquez, and Joy Rowena.
    Erap is far from being unique in show business. In her Philippine Star column this past week (“Cuckoo Clans”), Yoly Villanueva-Ong wrote that Dolphy (Rodolfo V. Quizon), the King of Comedy, has 18 children with six different women. Dolphy’s autobiography confirms that he has 6 children with Engracia Dominguez; 4 with Gloria Smith; 4 with Pamela Ponti; 1 with Evangeline Tugalao; and 1 with Alma Moreno.
    But there is a dark side to having “mass-produced” children with multiple partners.
    As Villanueva-Ong wrote, “nobody thought it was funny when one of (Dolphy’s children) burned down the home of a showbiz mogul, setting ablaze the wife and children. Another son was in drug rehab, a younger one was involved in an accident that got his girlfriend killed. Recently, a grandson was charged with attempted murder.”
    San Francisco neighborhood activist and cable TV host Myrna Lim, who almost became the first Fil-Am to be elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors when she narrowly lost to Gerardo Sandoval in 2004, is well aware of this dark side when she recently talked about the murder of her older sister, Mila, in 1980.
    Myrna recounts that while her sister was at the box office collecting money at the Granada movie theater which was showing Dolphy movies, thieves barged in and held up the moviegoers. “As they were leaving”, Myrna said, “they shot my sister Mila who was just standing by the concessions”.
    San Francisco’s famed detective team of Earl Sanders (later S.F. police chief) and Napoleon Hendrix captured the two Filipino killers who confessed that the robbery was a ruse whose main purpose was to kill Mila Lim because of her alleged involvement in a lesbian relationship with Sally Quizon, a daughter of Dolphy. The killers pointed to Freddy Quizon, Sally’s older brother, as the man who hired them to kill Mila Lim and who participated in the robbery. Before an arrest warrant could be issued for him, Freddy Quizon fled to the Philippines.
    Another of Dolphy’s sons, Dolphy, Jr. was convicted of arson in a fire which claimed the lives of six persons, including the children of former actress Mina Aragon. Dolphy, Jr. was sentenced to life imprisonment but was later pardoned by former President Joseph Estrada, Dolphy’s close friend.
    Next week marks the second anniversary of the Ampatuan Massacre which was perpetrated by the clan of Gov. Datu Andal Ampatuan Sr, who officially has four wives and over 30 children. Two of his sons, Andal, Jr. and Datu Unsay, are charged with presiding over the brutal killing and rape of over 56 people including 31 members of the Philippine media, on November 22, 2009.
    The latest crime involving “mass-produced” children was the October 28 killing of Ramgen Bautista, also known as Ram Revilla, reportedly upon the orders of his own younger brother, RJ, and sister, Mara (who fled to Turkey). They are three of the 81 children of former Sen. Ramon Revilla, Sr., who regularly invites all of his children to his annual birthday party to make certain that they all know each other to prevent a romantic relationship among them that, he fears, may produce idiots.
    What moral values are imparted to the 81 children attending his birthday party?
    Incest is a sin, infidelity is not. Neither is not participating in the raising of your children as long as you regularly give them money, like 1 million pesos a month.
    They also learn that the Catholic Church will readily look the other way just as long as the Senator opposes the Reproductive Health (RH) bill. In fact, he may well be the poster boy for the biblical instruction “Go forth and multiply” most favored by the celibate bishops.
    In her column, Yoly Villanueva-Ong wrote that “it is hard enough to raise good children with a complete set of parents. But without a watchful mother and father, what are the odds that mass-produced kids will ever reach their full potential? Patriarchs who use their descendants like trophies that attest to their manhood better rethink their legacy while they still can…Nothing makes up for the missing guidance that parenting requires.”
    “Children who grow up untended like mushrooms are likely to repeat the cycle of broken and dysfunctional family life,” she warned. Some of these untended mushrooms may even commit grisly crimes.

    That article came from this too, a rehash from the KKK... Cuckoo Clans.

    Cuckoo clans - CITIZEN Y By Yoly Villanueva-Ong - The Philippine Star » News » Opinion

    For some, they thought the mass production and economies of scale would win them more votes? No wonder Bong Revilla is a consistent top notcher in votes.

    I hope it doesn't give Lito Lapid an idea to play catch up with Ramon Revilla Sr. Thankfully the Arroyos have not been propagating that way either... imagine Mikey Arroyo spreading his progeny.

    As long as you support the Chuch's stand on the RH bill, the Church is willing to look away from your past "indiscretion"...

    Mukhang may katotohanan pala yung sinabi nung witness na isa sa mga motibo ng pagpatay kay Ramgen yung pagka-malupit niya sa ibang kapatid. Pwera pa yung pananakal niya kay Gail dati.

    “Nagpasama lang sila sa akin at kay Mommy La dahil wala food sila makain sa bahay. Lagi naka-lock. Wala din sila magamit na driver. Ginipit mo kaya sila. Pati driver inangkin mo. Pati pagkain sa bahay, sinolo mo. Kawawa ung mga bata."

    “Kaya nga ayaw ng mga tao jan sayo sa bahay. Kasi ayaw nila sa ugali mo."

    Sadly inadmissible sa court yan, tsismis. But not enough reason to kill.

    Police: Ramgen’s second youngest sis not yet a suspect in slay

    The second youngest sister of murdered actor Ramgen “Ram" Revilla is not yet considered a suspect despite having been reportedly tagged by another suspect as among those who masterminded the crime, police said.

    Chief Inspector Enrique Sy, head of Task Force Ramgen, said authorities have yet to receive a copy of the sworn statement of Glaiza Visda reportedly linking Ram’s 20-year-old sister, Maria Ragelyn Gail Bautista, to the crime.
