Dear Corazon Juliano-Soliman,
So I heard you had the temerity to file a complaint against DSWD Asec Lorraine Marie T. Badoy for her “inappropriate words” pertaining to her comments on child porn and the EU.
At first I refused to believe it. This is a joke, right? You, Dinky Soliman, officially and unanimously the Philippines’ most hated, most vilified failure of a DSWD secretary, had the actual guts to complain about someone who is, without doubt, a million times more effective, more humane, more sincere than you?
Was I living in fucking Twilight Zone? If I were as bad as you, I would slink away into nothingness and anonymity and pray that people do not remember my sins and shortcomings. But no, you, Dinky Soliman, had the AUDACITY to pretend you had the moral high ground to complain. If it weren’t so offensive to me, I’d be laughing at the sheer ridiculousness of your move.
You, who fucked up the relief operations in Leyte and allowed my fellow Warays to go hungry as food rotted in your warehouses because not only did you have zero efficiency, you were heartless.
You, who paid 280,000 of our tax money just in resort rooms alone, because you hastily booked 70 rooms for 100 poor families in a Batangas resort so you could remove them from the streets for the Pope’s visit in 2015? A quarter of a million pesos, just for rooms alone! Look at how perfect you are!
You, who only weeks after Yolanda hit, forced the businessmen in Leyte to open their businesses because you could not continue to give “dole outs,” because by God, we only got paltry donations to the tune of a billion dollars! And you could not feed less than a million people on aid that paltry now, could you? Poor Dinky, you had to do with VERY few donations.
I am from Tanauan, Leyte, from Brgy. Buntay and I was actively involved in relief operations. I had no choice because you were a fucking failure. The first vans we dispatched to give away food and water–which left Manila 2 days after the typhoon and arrived in Tanauan a day or two after was the first relief some of the people there received. I got messages saying that the packs were the first they received. ANG KAPAL NG MUKHA MO MAGMALINIS when there were many towns in Leyte which you did not immediately reach out to even almost a week after the tragedy happened! The people were starving while sitting beside their dead!
Wow, look at the level of your effiency and appropriateness! Ang appropriate mo talaga, Dinky.
The Department of Budget and Management recorded P73.31 billion donated–and that figure only reflects the government-to government-transactions. That does not include NGOs, international orgs, individuals, private companies, and other hand-delivered donations. Oh, Dinky, how little you had to work with!
Your reasons for the P30 million peso food spoilage (and I’m only talking about one batch) and the water bought from Manila that never got to Tacloban (JUST ONE BATCH!) was “lack of transport facilities.”
Sacks of rotten rice were discovered in an OPEN PIT in Dagami, Leyte!
Let me tell you how easy it was for ordinary citizens like us to transport relief goods. Philippine Airlines thru a friend gave us 1 ton FREE ALLOCATION a week. We hired 10 or 16 wheeler wing vans once a week at the height of the efforts for P75,000 a trip, money raised thru friends and friends of friends. Some donated vans to ferry goods going to Tacloban, and on the way back, people who wanted to escape Tacloban, free of charge. And we didnt have the government’s resources and money.
Within Leyte there were vehicles for hire to reach many towns.
And you dare tell us you had problems with transport? Ano, ayaw niyo gastusin yung pera na dinonate? ISTORYAHI!!!!
How many people died again? 6,000? YOU KNOW THAT THE NUMBER IS MORE THAN DOUBLE–TRIPLE!!!– THAT, AND YOU MASKED YOUR OWN INEFFICIENCY BY PRETENDING THAT ONLY 6,000 PEOPLE DIED!
Naalala ninyo yung Region 8 PNP regional director na pinatanggal ninyo dahil sabi nya 10k ang namatay? Pinatanggal ninyo dahil nakakasama siya sa imahe ng Pilipinas? Pero si Leni ok lang magsalita ng masama sa Pilipinas? SAGAD SA BUTO ANG KA IPOKRITOHAN NINYO.
Binilang nyo ba ang walang birth certificate? Eh sa probinsiya, hindi naman uso ang birth certificate!? MANY PEOPLE LIVED AND DIED WITHOUT A RECORD. THEY LIVED AND DIED WITHOUT PROOF. BECAUSE OUR GOVERNMENT IS SO PERFECT THAT MANY WOMEN GIVE BIRTH IN THEIR HOMES AS HOSPITALS ARE EXPENSIVE. AND NOW THESE SAME PEOPLE DIED WITHOUT THE DIGNITY OF A DEATH CERTIFICATE OR EVEN AN ACKNOWLEDGMENT! In the annals of history, it’s as good as they never existed.
How many body bags were flown in to Leyte? More than 10,000, KULANG PA! How many bodies were shoved in one body bag and counted as one? What about those at the bottom of the sea? Those who were never found?
Did you do anything when the people in Leyte had to beg, borrow, and steal food to survive?
If I enumerated all your shortcomings and failures as a DSWD secretary, I would need a month to write everything. And yet here you are, crowing about appropriateness.
ANG TAMAD MO. ANG BOBO MO. ANG PALPAK MO. You allowed logistics to get in the way of helping people who sorely needed those things because of LACK OF TRANSPORT FACILITIES when you had the power and might of the government behind you! ANG KAPAL MO! We were so busy with the relief efforts–THINGS WE HAD TO DO ON OUR OWN– that we didn’t have the luxury of time to say, “Can I file a complaint against Dinky Soliman?” Wala kang konsensiya.
Hindi ka nahiya? Three years! THREE FUCKING YEARS after Yolanda happened and some people in Leyte still do not have a roof over their head. That President Duterte still had to dispense help to those in Leyte because you weren’t able to tie all the loose ends during your term!
Nung unang punta mo sa Leyte after the typhoon hit, how many relief packs did you bring? Knowing the scope of destruction? Gusto ko manggaling sayo ang figures kahit alam ko. Ilan lang?
What happened to the ESA? The Emergency Shelter Assistance program? Bakit palpak ang distribution? Bakit hinayaan mo mamili ang mga corrupt na barangay official kung sino ang bibigyan ng aid? Yung shelters (CORE SHELTERS!), more than 60 percent hindi pa nagagawa 3 years after Yolanda hit! 200,000 families still homeless because you and the administration you worked for took its sweet time politicking!
AND MAG REREKLAMO KA SA ISANG OFFENSIVE STATEMENT NI LORRAINE BADOY–who is one million times the woman and the public servant that you are? ANG KAPAL KAPAL KAPAL KAPAL MO!
You couldn’t even provide the Warays the most basic of necessities. YOU LEFT A LEGACY OF NEGLECT!!! A LEGACY OF NEGLECT AND YOU HAVE THE TEMERITY TO STAND ON YOUR SOAPBOX AND LECTURE?
Face it: The reason you are so gung-ho about Lorraine Badoy’s removal from office is because you know–YOU KNOW BECAUSE YOU MADE SURE STAFF LOYAL TO YOU ARE STILL IN KEY POSITIONS IN DSWD–that there is an ongoing audit of the Yolanda funds, and your head will soon be served on a platter for all of us to feast on.
You make me cry in anger and frustration, Dinky. All that rage and disappointment during Yolanda as I witnessed your heartlessness and inefficiency rush back to me now.
How LOW of you to surface now and pretend you were a model of excellence when you are easily considered the worst cabinet member in PNoy’s term!
HOW DARE YOU. Ang kapal ng apog mo.
I do have to thank you for one thing, though.
Because of you and people like you in Aquino’s government, I am now one of the most rabid supporters of a man who, despite being only a local official, reached Leyte despite “transport” problems and dispensed help without all the drama that were part of your administration.
Without Yolanda I would not have had the hatred and the fire in my heart. Because of you, I have become a patriot. Because of you I spend more time defending my President from the likes of you–to ensure that no repeat of an LP-led government happens again, when I could be obsessing about makeup and shopping and the other luxurious pursuits in life, But no, here I am, struggling mightily, spending time to make sure LP never gets a single seat in government again. That’s how much help you are because MANY FILIPINOS suddenly cared for this country after you and your government FUCKED IT ALL UP.
With all the collective grief and the anger and the sadness and the rage of Typhoon Yolanda's victims and survivors, I wish that you Dinky Soliman, pay your karmic debt, and soon. I wish jail time for you Dinky, but I also wish you the kind of suffering that follows you for all eternity.
TUMAHIMIK KA, DINKY. KUNG MAY ISANG TAO NA WALANG KARAPATAN PUMUNA, IKAW YON. LUMUGAR KA AT BAKA MAG FILE DIN KAMI NG COMPLAINT AGAINST YOU.
