I am no longer the passionate political person that I was six years ago. When I read about the Arab political revolution in the paper last year–did not stop me from enjoying my Mocha Caramel frappuccino. I really love my Starbucks frappuccino, you know. When I saw the mass riots in Spain yesterday–it did not budge me from my game in my iPad at all. I am trying so hard to beat my husband at Tiny Wings. Grrr.
When I saw the trending censored status updates in Facebook as a peaceful protest against the approval of the R. A. 10175, I thought to myself that it cannot be so bad. Most of the people who reacted violently with the bill know no better anyway. If I will post on Facebook that the Philippine Military stands a chance against the intimidating giant that is China, for sure they will buy it and eat it like that Magnum ice cream craze.
Since I do not want to be among the 80 percent users in Facebook who do that exactly, I paid a little visit to my old friend,Google, for some accurate advice. Whoever you are, especially if you are a friend of mine, you won’t like what I found out.
