Full name: Rodelo Suyom Pidoy

Nickname: Ugong

What he already did:

-Written more than 1000 poems

-First used cell phone in November 2008

-Sold more than 50 cell phone units as of November 2009

-Has bought and destroyed more than 50 units of AM-FM radio

-Repaired, modified, and sold electronic equipment after that

-Avoided using computers unless so necessary from 2000-2008. But as of May-June 2009 repaired, set-up, and sold computers already without using manuals (used electricity from relatives as own house has none).

-Was able to cure any kind of diseases (stroke, asthma, hypersensitivity reaction, colds, fever, insomnia, kidney trouble, stomach pain, canker, cancer, hemorrhoids, enlarged heart, toothache, goiter, eyestrain, migraine, skin allergy, chronic cramps, irregular menstrual cycle, child-bearing problems, depression, nervous breakdown, ulcers, bone fractures, and many more even those not biologic in origin – or that which are not caused by food or water taken.

-Did the healing without the aid of western medicine.

-Invented 50 inventions/gadgets; once made one invention a day for 30 days.

-Developed a technique for planting several millions of trees in one day.

-Planted 2000 trees in less than a minute.

-Made a device that can turn off neighboring FM radios

-Made a device that can control rains, typhoons, earthquakes, ice and hailstorms.

-Made a device that can pinpoint the part of the body that is weak and uses it as a diagnostic tool in treating patients.

What he can do and still needs to do:

-Intends to study at Harvard. He likes to take medicine.

-Will try to patent his inventions and mass produce some.

-Intends to sell his weather controlling device for a price enough to cover all the debts of the Philippines and with enough money for him to launch a national campaign; however, he thinks it is better to keep it into himself and use it for the country to develop for it might go to wrong hands and we will be victims. To utilize its potential, however, he needs to be the President.

-Likes to experience true democracy and not a false one.

-Can make the country be united as one and develop.

-Likes to create a million jobs the first month he sits in office.

-Likes the next generation of Filipinos see the Philippines as their paradise.

Before these happens, however, he needs to qualify as a candidate. He is only 26 by the time of the election and so he is disqualified. He needs to change the Constitution. He can do it alone. However there is not enough time. He needs the cooperation of everybody and the help of everyone who needs to experience true democracy and true freedom. How could we have true freedom to participate when one of the requirements for President is “at least forty years old at the time of election” while also having “be able to read and write as a criterion”? Most grade one pupils know how to read and write and so a forty year-old who has finished grade one only is allowed while a twenty year-old college graduate cannot?

The “be able to read and write” gives us a false feeling of freedom for it includes almost all of us. The “at least forty years old” however gives us a restriction. Therefore we think we are free but actually we are not. Age limit for Presidents then must be lowered. It must be lowered to at least twenty years old. If not, he will wait until he is old enough to be corrupted by the corrupt society he is in and become a corrupt president later on. The choice is yours. Now is the time to make history. Let us make democracy the rule of the masses – the poorer class – because we are the majority.

We are not having oligarchy as our type of government so at least one from our ranks needs to be the President. In that way elite rule will not continue. If it does continue at least we are not disenfranchised citizens. I did this because I was called. I have come upon your calling. And so recognize that I am the one whom you are waiting. Cooperate with my cause and I will cooperate with you. Together we can fight Global Warming, and warming here in our country due to much politicking. I myself if I will not contribute my help, this nation will be ravaged not only by war but by violent typhoons and strong earthquakes.

We need to participate in politics. I know you do not want to be dominated by evil men. Let me quote what Plato – one of the great Greek philosophers – “It is the price of good men who hesitate to involve in politics ruled by evil men”. Allow me to be your voice and your representative. This country needs only one man for it to change – I.

Say this also and together we will be united by the same belief. Only then will we be one.

Wish anything reasonable from me and it shall be done.

  1. i.b, ciao. i had to talk with somebody very important…(why am i sharing this? because i’m so happy (?))

    hahaha. revolutions should have better reason other than turning on people who start them.

    good evening from here.

  2. good to know that, ha ha ha. that would be quite alarming otherwise, people who start wars or revolutions just because it turns them on, ha ha ha. see you around, ciao.

  3. you get turned on by revolutions :(. ha ha ha. wonder if any one of those whose heads rolled on the guillotine shared your sentiment, ha ha ha. that would have consoled them on their final hours, at least, LOL.

  4. in fact exaggeratingly faithful. hahaha. thanks for reminding me that i have a blog named salin. i almost forgot. i haven’t updated it since last year.

    i bet google translation only works for english.

    my web connection is too slow to allow me to view those videos. but thanks. i will try later tonight when everyone else is sleeping, probably my internet will pick up speed.

  5. on the other hand, i translated your ‘salin’ blog entries back to english, not bad at all :). shows your translation was quite faithful, he he.

  6. i already checked the blog. truly interesting pictures. google translation is very funny. i’ve read my blog translated to both vietnamese and filipino, the translations were atrocious. hahaha.

    the pictures speak for themselves, no text needed.

  7. this is the main blog page where i found the above picture after a google search. it’s in dutch but i don’t know if it might interest you, it’s by a marketing communications student, and he/she(?) chooses a lot of interesting ads. buddy google 🙂 might be useful translating, but i think the shots are of themselves interesting enough.

  8. if only we learn by example. filipinos want the bloodier way.

    and although i am no communist, i get turned on by revolutions.

    this guy, he dares imagine a different world. this act, this daring make me believe that the picture you sent me is possible…

    thanks i.b.

  9. thanks. you hit the nail on the head with your explanation.
    daring to believe in change, though, has to be the point of departure. i don’t believe in revolutions, or that change can come overnight (after the revolution, other countries around france didn’t exactly wait for the same thing to happen to them and evolved into modern governments, simplistically saying :)).
    this is an award-winning ad for a university with the slogan ‘dare to think’ (in the sense of differently). it’s a very beautiful picture, with beautiful models of course, implying that daring to think differently involves being able to imagine a world where instead of African kids being adopted by Westerners, it’s the other way around :

  10. because it is easier to grasp the concept of a god that controls everything and is good than a society that is controlled by some and is too harsh on those who were not given equal opportunities.

    pidoy, although some would say is rather ‘too different’, is an example of a man who never allowed himself to be herded by some unknown forces, but which most of us have long time ago succumbed to.

    i respect him.

  11. may more and more people like Mr. Pidoy get involved in politics. may the force be with him:).
    one of your students cited another personality who he thought was not ready for politics. the point has to come when the pinoy gets his belief back. if it’s possible for a pinoy to have faith in a divine being, which is such an abstract concept why is it so hard for the pinoy to have faith in changing society, which is more concrete?
