It’s part of my job to read newspapers everyday, and yet even I have lost track of how many impeachment complaints have so far been filed against the President. Are we on the fifth? Sixth? Was this latest one a separate complaint or did they just add their signatures to the one set to be filed next week? While the civilian signatories are piling up, what about signatures from congressmen themselves? And while Indonesia reels from yet another natural catastrophe and the conflict in the Middle East sends Filipinos fleeing, and the Mayon volcano brews itself for another eruption, doesn’t the impeachment issue seem to grow a little bit smaller in comparison?
I’m not questioning the intent, of course. It’s just that, well, you know there’s really something wrong with your country if a lot of people believe that the incumbent President may be guilty of corruption and electioneering but are too busy facing other problems (like, daily survival, for example) to bother with it.
