Dominican FM: No asylum bid for Arroyo | Inquirer Global Nation

Easy enough to put out "informal" feelers so all can have plausible deniability but everyone knows what the game is for the Arroyo camp.   Time to "get out of Dodge!"

You would think that after seeing so many "bubbles" people would learn how to spot a bubble. But eternal hope springs for getting something for nothing, as in hitching your fortunes to a rocket ship and expecting it to never blow up or run out of fuel.

The world is not fueled so much by greed as by stupidity. Who was it, Ringling who said "There's a sucker born every minute."

Time to shore up the "Red Zone" defense.

At least it seems like someone, Panetta?? is having some success getting Obama to do something for national security. But remember, this too is subject to change, after the 2012 elections! My bet ... it's all for appearances to look tough.

I've heard about taking a Bite Out of Crime, but this is ridiculous!  While I hate to be crude, if a rapist is desperate enough he will likely resort to sodomy instead of vaginal intercourse just to get what he is looking for while "playing it safe", so to speak.

Arroyo barred from travel | Inquirer News

'via Blog this'

In developing countries, corruption is usually rampant.  The Philippines is no different.  Prior President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, GMA, is currently being investigated along with other members of her administration for election fraud and other financial malfeasance.  Included are her husband Jose Miguel Arroyo and their son, Mikie who is facing tax evasion charges.

Barely one year out of office and newly elected as a Congresswoman to the District of Pampanga, her home area, she has suddenly developed neck/spine problems that have apparently required surgeries at St. Luke's Medical Center known as the best in the Philippines ...

Key point here is that Gloria Arroyo appointed 12 of the 15 Justices sitting on the SC while Aquino has appointed only 3 since taking office. We will see who still owes her favors.
