“ALL FOR THE MONEY
walang kwentang laban”
This is how 1dangkal ni JP, a political blogger, perceives Manny Pacquiao’s boxing match with Errol Spence replacement, Yordenis Ugas from Cuba.
1dangkal began by reminding Pacquiao the two concepts governing the practice of profession when a person is elected or appointed to public offices.
The practice of profession is usually limited when a person is elected or appointed to public office. Kadalasan- may mga propesyon (kagaya ng abogado, etc.) na nililimitahan ayon sa batas ang private practice dahil ang “public service is a public trust”.
Ang ibang matinong propesyonal naman ay kusang nililimitahan ang kanilang sarili alinsunod sa moralidad (ie. delikadesa) at common sense. Ang serbisyo publiko ay 24/7 full-time obligation na hindi maaaring ipagsabay sa propesyon na isa ring full-time obligation, “you cannot have 2 masters at the same time” (ayon sa turo ng bibliya).
1dangkal lamented the sad truth – some professionals in government do not understand this concept – more often than not, these are artists and particularly a boxer. This concept is basic in polsci and public administration, 1dangkal stated.
May ibang propesyonal sa gobyerno, sa kasamaang palad- ay hindi nakakaintindi sa ganitong konsepto- madalas mga artista at lalo na itong boksingero. Basic lang naman sana ito sa political science at public administration o kahit na sa mga subject lang ng social science kagaya ng SocSci 1 and 2.
1dangkal reckoned that while the country is facing a pandemic or even before the pandemic, some government officials did not quit shooting movies or training for a boxing match, which he found very unacceptable. For what? 1dangkal asked.
Habang nahaharap tayo sa pandemya- o kahit na sa normal na panahon, hindi yata katanggap- tanggap na may mga opisyales tayo ng gobyerno na pa- shooting shooting lang o pa- boxing boxing lang! Para sa ano?
1dangkal answered his own question and that is for their personal interest or for the love of money. As an elected lawmaker, isn’t Pacquiao neglecting his job? To think he knew a lot of corruption going on in government, why did he not focus on this?
Siyempre para sa pera! Pansariling kita. Kagaya lamang nito ang laban ni Pacquiao sa boxing. Oo, kaabang- abang (for entertainment) na malaman kung kaya pa ba ng over-aged and overrated boxer talunin ang mas batang Spence. Ngunit bilang halal na mambabatas- hindi ba’t pinapabayaan niya ang kanyang trabaho? Sa dami ng korapsyong kanyang nalalaman- bakit hindi yun ang atupagin!
1dangkal can’t help but ask that since his supposed boxing match against Spence has been cancelled – why was the search for replacement boxer faster than the speed of light? Is this fight for whom? 1dangkal ended the paragraph by borrowing a line from a popular Pacquiao song.
At ngayong cancelled na ang laban nila ni Spence dahil sa sugat sa mata- bakit mas mabilis pa sa alas- cuatro ang paghahanap ng kapalit? Para saan at para kanino ang laban nato? Hinding- hindi ata “para sa’yo ang laban na ‘to wowowowo”?
1dangkal wrapped up the post by leaving Pacquiao with something to give a serious thought.
SHOWBIZ IS NOT PUBLIC SERVICE
