President Arroyo’s 2008 State of the Nation Address (SONA)

This coming Monday July 28, 2008, our President, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will give his annual State of the Nation Address (SONA). The nation’s attention will once again be focused to the Batasan Complex (Where the house of the representathieves sorry, that is “representatives” holds sessions) at Quezon city, Metro Manila Philippines for this historic event. In the United States the State of the Nation Address is known as the “State of the Union address.”

All systems go for this coming Monday’s State of the Nation Address. Traffic has been re-routed and schools in Quezon City have declared no classes. Security has been beefed up in the area and even the president’s new dress is already prepared. This time President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo will be wearing her newly made red Maria Clara terno in piña fiber. While the president will be giving the State of the Nation Address, protestors are planning to do their annual protest hence they are also readying their vintage t shirts, placards and other propaganda materials.

Presidential Management Staff Chief Sec. Serge Remonde earlier stated that the President’s State of the Nation Address would focus on the oil and food crises. According to him the President will “confront the situation and lay down plans how she intends to address the crises” Hopefully this problem will really be addressed by the government and that the solutions outlined is not only confined to the four corners of the pages of the President’s State of the Nation Address.

Giving out the State of the Nation address is not just something that the president wants to do. This is a constitutional duty that the president has to execute as stated in Article VII, Section 23 of the 1987 Constitution.

Before President Arroyo gives out her State of the Nation address, she might want to get some tips from the State of the union address that President Bush made last year. Watch this youtube video and see what tips president Arroyo might be able to get from President Bush. :-)

    Kung gusto nyong umunlad ang Pilipinas, tigilan ninyo ang sobrang hilig nyo sa kantutan, dahil tuwing nag-kakantututan kayo, it means ay pang-dagdag sa dami ng ating populasyon. Di ba bawal ang contraceptives sa Pinas? Kung wala kayong magawa, imbes na mag-kantutan kayo, mag-hanap na lang kayo ng paraan para may-pagkakitaan sa buhay. Huwag naman puro siyete at chika-chika ang pag-kaulolan ninyo. Huwag ninyo isisi sa presidente ang hirap ng buhay, lahat ng bansa sa mundo ay apektado ng krisis dala ng presyo ng langis. Baka di ninyo alam kung ilan na ang populasyon ng pinas?
    malapit ng sumampa ng 90 milyon! Ilang presidente ba ang nabulgar na kumarakot ng garapalan? Eh di yuong pina-palakpakan ninyo ngayon twing may rally laban kay Ate GLow! Sino pa, si Estrada at mga kampon ni Marcos. Hala, mag-sikilos kayo at mahal ang bigas, mag-hanap kayo ng trabaho imbes na puro reklamo at panonood ng wow-wowee at pa-text-text na kahit na mga walang trabaho. O sige na nga, kayong mga kampon ng reklamador at mababaho ang puwet, baka may tae na ang mga salawal ninyo, maligo kayo at mangulangot at para maluwag-luwag ang inyong pag-hinga!!
