Disappointing Events

Frustration weakens me every time something I expect to occur naturally fails to get done.  Although I am a genius at disappointing myself, this time this post would not be about how I let myself down.  This time it's about the Stupidities apart from those attributable to me.  YES I AM POINTING FINGERS!

Disappointment No. 1: Supreme Court

The recently decided case of De Castro vs JBC has placed even a freshman law student into a state of bewilderment.   The entire Country is shocked at how the supposedly champion of the people had resolved the issue of whether or not the incumbent Philippine President can appoint the successor of Chief Justice Reynato Puno who is set to retire this coming May 17, 2010.  

The decision allowing PGMA to appoint the next Chief Justice despite the Constitutional ban on midnight appointments is so revolting as it is against everything that was taught to us in law school.  I may not be a very diligent student but I do know that they defied even the most basic rule of Statutory Construction: Ubi lex non distinguit nec nos distinguere debemosWhere the law does not distinguish, we should not distinguish.  

I am saddened at how our beloved country is being run.  Stop the Red Queen!!

Disappointment No. 2:  Mama's Boy

Is it just me or is the Mama's Boy Syndrome spreading like a deadly plague nowadays?  Well I just can't help notice the many men over the age of 21 still hanging around school with no intention of graduating soon or bumming around engaging in drinking sprees all at the expense of their parents.

Are the mothers at fault here for overly showering their sons with love and affection that lead boys to become over dependent and not able to fend for themselves?



I really don't have scientific proof but my own brother seems to be a living testimony that there is such a thing as a Mama's Boys Syndrome.  Heck!  I'm seeing two running for important public office.  Moms, sometimes tough love is good for your child.

I have yet to disappoint myself but don't fret I will definitely tell all.
