Sen. Jamby Madrigal’s unparliamentary language and disorderly behavior

Cavite Rep. Gilbert Remulla is right in filing complaints to Senate ethics committee against Senator Ma. Ana Consuelo Madrigal.

On May 8, 2009, Sen. Jamby Madrigal told in a TV interview that Remulla is “corruption king of Cavite.” It was so disgusting to hear a Senator saying inappropriate language like Jamby’s. Even Senators are liable of uttering malicious and highly inappropriate language. The remarks of Jamby further destroy the already tinted reputation of the Senate.

The Senate ethics committee must seriously look into this issue as it equally give weight on complaints against Sen. Manny Villar. Both Villar and Madrigal have accountability to the Filipino nation.

Senate inquiry on sex video scandal: Out of direction, out of focus

Unless the Philippine Senate is a barber shop, the good senators should stop at once wading through the Hayden Kho – Katrina Halili sex video scandal.

On Thursday (May 28, 2009) a Senate committee led by Sen. Jamby Madrigal had an inquiry on the sex video scandal. This is after Senator Ramon Revilla Jr. delivered a privilege speech describing Dr. Hayden Kho as “a maniac, pervert of the highest kind, a predator who has no conscience nor respect for women.”

As expected Senators Ramon Revilla Jr., Jinggoy Estrada were present. These Senators, along with Jamby Madrigal are known to get into the center stage on issues with cinematic effect.

I was not surprised when Sen. Jinggoy Estrada and the committee insisted that the senate hearing must be publicly done. Lawyer of Dr. Hayden Kho appeal for a private (closed-door meeting). Of course the three senators who are all desperate to get close-up on camera will not allow to loss an opportunity to appear on national television.

Arrest Jamby and Pia

Yes, it was Jamby Madrigal who suggested that Pia Cayetano be arrested for not attending a Senate session. But I want them both arrested. By the way, both are senators and are among the four women senators in the 14th Congress.

Jamby Madrigal

Their crime? Both make me laugh out loud since they started their cat and dog quarrels which converted the Senate floor into big venue for their political sitcom.

Now, what is the crime? Well, because I laugh out so loud, I got gas pain. So, I want both women in Senate to get arrested for inflicting gas pain to me and to all who get amused and annoyed with them.

I only heard these women they make extraordinary scenes fitted for a stand-up comedian. Okay, I heard about Jamby’s occasional walkout (an act fitted to a spoiled brat). I heard about poetic lines of Pia rebuttal. I can relate Pia more on the product she endorsed than her performance in the Senate.

The 14th Congress is becoming a playground of some Senators who are more concerned on their personal whereabouts than the welfare of Filipino people. That makes the 14th Congress less desirable.

Pia Cayetano

Just think of it. At the height of annoying investigations, the Senators are too early and always present. Was it because there was live TV coverage?

Sometimes, I wonder if Senators really want to legislate or they want to get spotted by advertisers. See? There are many Senators who work part time as product endorsers.

Now, the reasons why many Senators are absent in their recent session might be their hectic schedule. Some may still negotiate with advertisers.

I hope no one among the senators read this post. Otherwise, one will surely call for a fruitless investigation. Anyway, I don’t insert any suspicious element in this post. No matter how disgusted I am, and how angry I am on the way Senators show their feathers in public, I will not say the famous line of a Senator who obviously got his ambition.

By the way, when both Pia and Jamby get arrested, I want them to audition to Pinoy Big Brother reality show. Who knows, that will be the start of more exciting career. Amen to that!

What happen to some Philippine Senators?

I get more than enough dosage of absurdity done by some senators in the 13th and 14th Congress. It seems to me that many senators are working hard not to legislate for the general welfare of the people. [It seems] They use legislative power for personal and political motives. Forgive me honorable senators but please do not blame me for thinking like this.

Look how some “brave” senators treated “witnesses” during the gruesome, theatrical, and often misdirected Senate investigation. Many times I suspected that the Senate investigations are not intended to aid important legislations but to aid political ambitions. Again, my apologies to good senators but again, do not blame me for thinking like this.

Almost everything popular will be investigated by the senate. This makes TV news more funny and very entertaining. It is both entertaining and irritating to see senators ranting infront of the camera. One writer proposed that some senators need “some training” so that they don’t appear like insecure and spoiled brat in highly respected branch of government.
