12 Things
that the Valley Golf
effectively proved

12. The pen is mightier than the biggest PR or crisis management budget (Tons of cash cannot buy minds with unwavering conviction – for further validation, go ask several Senatorial bets who spent a fortune in 2007… for nought)

11. The noisiest screw gets oiled first

10. Most of our politicians – from the most lowly to the most high – are guilty of hubris

Hubris denotes overconfident pride and arrogance; it is often

associated with a lack of humility, not always with the lack of
knowledge. An accusation of hubris often implies that suffering
or punishment will follow, similar to the occasional pairing of
hubris and nemesis in the Greek world. The proverb "pride goes
before a fall" is thought to sum up the modern definition of hubris.

9. Filipino government officials – even when caught red-handed doing ‘bad’ things – never resign… because, they serve “at the pleasure of the President”

8. It pays to have writing skills when you’re up against abusive, ill-educated powerful people

7. At least, for a while, we may hear less and less of this line: “baka hindi mo kilala me…”

6. Golfers should make a canister of mace and a baseball bat standard golf accessories

5. People who work in golf courses do not see or hear very well

4. Being seen playing golf with the First Son, after a barrage of negative press, is not a very smart move

3. Filipinos will never be docile again because of the internet

2. Technology can be put to good use – especially when exposing misdeeds and scandalous conduct

1. The Pangandamans are in deep shit
