    Very funny Sam but the truth behind the humor is so disgusting. This Congress should not escape the lambastment of history.

    Val, consistent jud si Tikbong Badelles. Consistent sa pagka-trapo. Imagine mo, during the campaign period, Tikbong campaigned for FPJ in areas under District 1, particularly in Iligan City where FPJ is strong. But in areas where GMA is relatively strong, in the province of Lanao del Norte, he campaigned for GMA. Trapo forever jud.

    Gosh! Nganong wala man si Cruz diari? Lawrence Cruz! Nyati! At least, if true na imong giingon, si Badelles naay utang na loob. Eh si Cruz? Gosh! Ang nag finance sa iyang campaign iyang running mate nga si Rudy Marzo unya iyang gikampanya kay si Henry Dy!!! Mao nay klarong trapo! Kalat kaayo how Gina Cruz would ask for money para ipakaon sa mga tawo and mga watchers but at the end, Dy ilang gipangampanya…
