  1. Oyyy kisang Espina pa pod ang pakandidatohon sa Caibiran? Naa pa bay laing Espina nganha sa Naval????Aha si palalab (kabit) diay pakandidatuha pod oy para alegre Espina na tanan…

    Hal sige pakandidatoha pod sa Caibiran, sa Almeria ug sa Biliran… Asa na si Greta para Mayor saCabucgayan….aron mahurot Espina na tanan ngari oy…

  2. Hoy Gov Espina, naa ka pa iba nga paryente para mukandidato sa tanang lungsod sa Biliran? Pakandidatoha na sila be, ok ra man kay matud pa sa atong dictionary-enligthened, wishful-thinker blogger nga di na matawag nga dynasty kay kuno ang dynasty ang succession sa position ra man for example, ikaw Gov Espina nipule ka ni Espina Sr pagka congressman unya si Espina Sr nipule nimo pagka Gov. Mao ra kuno ang dynasty, so therefore, pakandidatoha ang imong uban pa nga mga igsoon ug ang ilang mga bana/asawa, lukupa ninyo ang kada lungsad sa Biliran.

    Palabwe sad ang saad ni Rep Chong, kung siya magpabato kung di niya mahuman pag pasemento sa circumferential road sa sud sa iya term, ang imo sad magpaligis ka sa dump truck ug di ka katuman sa imong saad within sa imong term.

    Pareho ra man mo ba, maayo musaad during sa kampanya, palabwe na lang ang imong saad Gov Espina para naa pud gamay nga difference.

    The issue facing Biliran right now is the imminent return of all members of the Espina Dynasty who has ruled Biliran for 15 years, 12 years, in full control. Should the Espina Dynasty be restored to full power in 2010, you will be witnessing a more aggressive political dynasty that will have high chances of replicating another Ampatuan Dynasty in Biliran.

    You might say, why create another dynasty to replace another dynasty? I say, let us not prematurely judge the tandem of Rep Glenn Chong and his father Charlie Chong as forthcoming “bad dynasty”. It may only be a one off alternative until we weaken the Espina Dynasty’s resolve to control Biliran. The candidacy of both Chongs is our only alternative to field strong candidates that are bold enough to challenge the might of the political machinery and money of the Espina Dynasty.

    I say this again, in the last 12 months, consultations and surveys were conducted by well meaning Biliranons. The result: no one wants to stand up for fear of the political machinery and money of the Espina Dynasty; and lack of their own money to support their candidacy. Sadly, Philippine politics is all about political machinery and money. Remember 2007? We unsuccessfully fielded fully qualified candidates in Naval. That was a grim reminder that there are times when we temper our idealism with reality.

    Most of those who now aspire for the position of governor for Biliran have in one way or another been connected to the Espina Dynasty in the past. One Ruben Almadro is enough, we have learned our lesson. We are fielding candidates we can trust and cannot be bought by the Espina Dynasty. Candidates who have better chances of preventing the full return of Gerry Espina Sr., Rogelio Espina, Gerryboy Espina Jr, Rudy Espina, Roselyn Espina Paras and their cohorts in the likes of incumbent officials, who have conspired to rape, pillage and bury Biliranons in huge debts that our next generations will be paying for.

    It is a question of whether we will hand Biliran back to the Espina Dynasty in a silver platter for, that is exactly what will happen in 2010 if we field in weaker candidates. We cannot just be slaves to our idealism and principles while all members of the Espina Dynasty gear up for a full retake of Biliran.

    I would rather put my idealism on hold than lost the gains we are now experiencing under Rep Glenn Chong. It is a sacrifice we have to have.

    Biliranons will need to make a choice: give Rep Glenn Chong a fighting chance to continue his programs or hand back Biliran to the Espina Dynasty.

    Whilst we stick to our principles and idealism and pontificate the evils of political dynasties, the Espina Dynasty have no respect to Biliranons sentiments by fielding all their members to retake full control of Biliran in 2010

    It is not simply a question of dynasties. It is a case of a bad political dynasty imposing their will on Biliranons once again, after they have raped and pillage Biliran of its treasures for 15 years.

    What chances do we have?

    Let us give the Chong’s the benefit of the doubt.

  4. THE present constitution bans family political dynasties because when only one family lords it over a particular community, it denies other talented members of the community the chance to be of service to that community. This constitutional ban is clearly needed.

    Instead, top officials of the land who should otherwise set the example in obeying the Constitution are themselves violating it. President Macapagal-Arroyo is expanding her own family dynasty. Two of her sons and a brother-in-law are congressmen.

    Anti-Political Dynasty Act that would ban any spouse or relative of an incumbent elective official to run for any elected office.

    If we really want to end these political dynasties we should stop supporting an existing political dynasties and any upcoming ones.

    I SAY AGAIN, IF WE REALLY WANT TO END THESE POLITICAL DYNASTIES WE SHOULD STOP SUPPORTING AN EXISTING POLITICAL DYNASTY AND ANY UPCOMING ONES.
    Trumpeting that we are against political dynasties and subconsciously supporting an upcoming one is nothing but a hypocrisy.

    I SAY AGAIN, TRUMPETING THAT WE ARE AGAINST POLITICAL DYNASTIES AND SUBCONSCIOUSLY (AND NOW KAY NA-ENLIGHTENED MAN KUNO SA DICTIONARY), CONSCIOUSLY SUPPORTING AN UPCOMING ONE IS NOTHING BUT HYPOCRISY, H Y P O C R I S Y, HYPOCRISY.

  5. Nahhh… nadaot na ning tiguwang…. bisag asa naman lng mudagan,, siguro sunod kung maapod na niya pagdagan ang mga posisyon sa gobyerno mudagan ni ug kapitan sa QC,Diliman, Bisag ka klaro ana nga ang iyang residence ari sa caray-caray, kalayo ba sa gidaganan,, muingon pod sila kay tungod nga tga ngadto gud cya… Unsa ilang gikahadlukan kung mawad-aw ug posisyon sila diha sa Kawayan? nganung d man si Rudy mudagan sa mas taas nga posisyon? Naa kaha sila diha gitaguan nga basura nga baho kaayo sa munisipyo sa Kawayan? Oh, hadlok lng sila nga laing tawo bisag ilang ka partido ang padaganun sa pagka Mayor ug Bise Mayor kay di sila cgurado nga basig muhawa sa ila partido inig kahuman sa Election..? Kana mga initial lng na nga mga pangutana. May mas mga logical pa ana kaayo nga mga pangutana nganung ana man ang nahitabo sa ilang Kandidatura?

  6. LET US SEE KINSA NAG LINIHAY LIHAY.

    di jud masulbad ang problema labi na kung sige paghot against dynasty nya musuporta pud diay ug another upcoming dynasty. Mura ni ug doktor sige advise sa iya mga pasyente against smoking unya ang doktor manigarilyohay pud diay, mura ni ug preacher nga sige preach against adultery nya mag adulteryo pud diay ning preacher.
    Bottom line: kung talaga against dynasty, di jud mag suporta ug dynasty neither existing nor upcoming.
    Madlangbayan is right when he/she wrote: “little knowledge is dangerous, but more dangerous are those minds that seeks to enlighten where the truth stares right at their very faces” and let me add, still refuse to see and accept the truth.”

    RIGHT AFTER THIS POST OUR DICTIONARY-ENLIGHTENED, WISHFUL-THINKER BLOGGER POSTED THIS: 5. anti-dinastiya
    November 17th, 2009 (2 weeks ago) at 1:59 pm
    Thanks madlangbayan for your kind response.
    There is one thing I would like to hear straight from you
    just to play fair from your side.
    I am not trying to be malicious but just trying to find out
    if the rumor is true or not.
    How true is it that there was a
    “failed promise” or ” a promise unfulfilled” to this website
    from your candidate? You see, I have little knowledge
    about this but if you indulge to explain further,
    I will be thankful to you for clarifications or enlightenment
    so that I can be a little less dangerours though
    I’m trying to be politeful as possible and my alias
    does not carry an atmosphere or song lyrics of violence.
    It is not that I am forcing you to do it(the promisie) but a
    promise is a promise….right?
    There is a simple saying that if a person CANNOT
    BE TRUSTED WORTH A CENT OR THOUSAND PESOS,
    how much more for a million pesos of people’s money?
    Simple lang nga saying, di ba?
    Also, why not divulge also what transpired really in the
    meeting between Director Raffy Salazar and GC’s side
    to make unified stand to defeat the REAL DYNASTY?
    (see how those dynasty supporter bloggers behave here?
    please don’t go to their level – let us hold down our temper –
    i can…am worried about you..)
    You cannot share to us why Raffy Salazar cannot
    be trusted or why there was a unification failure?
    Or, better yet, why not ask your own candidate to blog here
    on his own words like GC?
    That will be interesting…and making sense, right?
    Maybe if Raffy does the transparency first, GC will do
    the civilized rebuttal afterwards and allow us independent
    voters to
    decide come 2010.
    I saw Raffy’s picture(yeah, he looks extra debonaire
    compared to Gerry’s in a horse article) in the beauty
    pageant, and I can’t see no reason why he can’t share his
    precious time with us online people dropping us few lines.
    What you think?
    But first come out clean about “the promise” here.
    Maybe I will go- just me – for G Chong- Salazar to make
    you happy……………..
    and please let the rest of the fair-minded decent voters
    decide on their own without insulting their intelligence, calling
    THEM
    tiwisted or no-sense, dangerous, adulterous, smoker
    hypocrite, prophet, whatever kabastosan pa….wow! and lol!
    Daghang salamat pod.”

    Commercial Break muna…

  14. Usa sa pinakadakong rason ngano nga gusto gyud kabay-an ni Gerry Espina Jr ug ni Rudy Espina ang lungsod sa Kawayan:

    Palihog basaha kini nga link sa thread nga minggawas niadtong Nobyembre 21 2008:

    ” No permit issued yet to white clay mining operation says environmental section head in Biliran”

    https://www.biliranisland.com/blogs/?p=609

    ug ang link sa This Land is Mined:

    https://www.biliranisland.com/blogs/?p=632

    Ang Tucdao Kawayan mao ang adunay pending application alang 20-hectare small-scale white clay mining. Kini dako kaayo nga hinungdan ngano nga sa Kawayan na midagan si Gerry Espina Sr ug dili gyud mobuhi si Rudy Espina anang lungsora.

    Kini na-pending lang sa dihang nabisto ang sulphur mining sa Caibiran. Mao kadtong panahona nga kunohay misulat si Rogelio Espina sa mga kaparian nga nga gipangulohan ni Bishop Bactol, nga dili na siya mohatag ug permit samtang siya ang Gobernador.

    Unsa may makapugong ani kung makadaog si Gerryboy Espina Jr pag-ka Gobernador? Di ba tuloy ang ligaya?

    Palihog basaha ang mga research nga nakapost sa “This Land is Mined” aron inyong mahibaloan ug pila ka U.S. dollar matag tonelada ang hanyag sa internet didto sa Alibaba sa sulphur ug white clay mining sa Biliran.

    Unya atong patubagon si Gerryboy ug unsay iyang buhaton sa white clay mining sa Tucdao, Kawayan ug bisang asang mineral deposits sa Biliran.

    Kini nga topic angayan nga moapil sa Madlangbayan aron atong mapaminawan kung unsay programa ni Raffy Salazar ani.

  15. Mao lagi na, karun nanggawas na ang tinuod nga mga intention sa mga ESPINA.. Nganung gudto nila butangan ug tawo sa Coongress, Capitol, ug Mayor sa Kawayan? CLEAR!!! nga gusto nila nga diretso ang ilang mga plano.. Nganung d man laing personalidad ang ilang padaganun sa KAWAYAN? Hadlok kaha sila nga dili nila mamina ang white clay nganha? MARAMA gud ni kaayo ang tiguwang pareho ni MARCOS,, kay sa akong research tawo gud ni kaniari ni MARCOS.

  16. Mga taga-kawayan pagmata namo, naa ang Espina Sr. ning dagan pagka-Mayor sa Kawayan. Human gi-labok ug gisalikway sa Naval naa napod dhi. Mga tagakawayan kun mopunit nalang mo ug basura ayaw nang basura sa laing lugar. Kana si Espina Sr. gilabog na sa taga Naval. Kaulaw man sa tagakawayan kun inyo nang pada-ugon. Sanglit boto sa kuntra n Espina Sr.

  17. Tama ka taga kawayan,,
    Pahawaa kanang dili taga Kawayan nga mangandidato diha kay dili na sila taal nga taga diha,,
    Mokandidato visag asa naa na pod diha kay hayahay ang buhay ng matanda pag nanalo dyan//

    Ayaw mo tugot nga diha napod magkalat ang duha ka ESTRANGERO DE KAWAYAN…BASIN MAHIMO NANG INYONG LUGAR NGA ESTRANGHERO DE KAWATAN…

  18. That’s the Very Bad choice of “TIGUWANG” sa pagdagan diha sa Kawayan, hinaot unta nga dili na pod mahitabo ang kaniari nga abuse of power sa kapulisan nganha tungod lamang sa mando sa Mayor.

  19. Unsa naman na oi……. wala matakas sa poder, ning dagan ka Mayor si Espina Sr. ug iya Vice Mayor iyang anak nga c Rudy Espina……………. mga hangol sa pwesto….. mga tagakawayan pagmata namo…………..

  20. AYAW KITA SIGIG TAGAWTAW,ULAHI NA HINOON DILI NA KITA MAKA FILE….HALA FINANCIAL SUPPORT NA LANG IHATAG SA KONTRA ARON MAHUMAN ANG LABAN. NAGDAGHAN LANG SA YAWYAW…TSEKKKKKKK….

  21. kung naay pagpakabana ang mga taga Kawayan para sa ilang lungsod, para sa kaugmaon sa ilang mga anak og ka apohan bisan wala nay pinalitay og botos para lang jud mahawa kaning mga Espina, himoon na lang unta. kay og simbako mo daog ning father and son tandem na hala tngale unya ika duha mo sa Caibiran.

  22. Lina Post # 26;

    Unsa ningdawat ang kontra ni Old man Espina ug kuwarta aron dili na molaban sa ED diha sa kawayan?

    Tinuod na ni or dili?

    Kung tinuod kini patay kamong mga taga Kawayan kay isunod gudm o sa Caibiran ani…….

    Pera pera pala ang laban ninyo dyan..Sana dili kini tinuod….

    Madaming pera ang Espina alam ng bayan iyan…. Saan galing iyon di ko alam…. kamo na lay bahala mohusgar oyyy.

  23. plssssssssssssssssss…. mga taga kawayan ayaw na intawon ninyo padag a nang maniac ug adik nga nga espina…have mercy on our beloved kawayan…..

  24. Cong Chong,
    I wish to take exception to your perception that Raffy is wathcing Susan’s house. We do not need to watch her house. Raffy is prepared for everything and watching Susan’s house is the least of our concerns. Although it was really quite a very interesting guessing game as to whether Mayor susan will file or not.
    Needless to say, we do not need to play politics coz Raffy only believes in the politics of “doing good.”
    That is our brand of Politics, the politics of doing good. Raffy’s poltics is based on peace, unity and harmony for the development and future of our province.
    Goodluck to you and God bless you our honorable representative.
