SONA SEASON, PERIOD OF PROTEST

It’s monsoon season on this side of the globe. It’s also SONA season. It’s the time when the government trumpets out its accomplishments against the gripes and protest by the different political groups.

I got this idea when I was scrolling through facebook and saw this meme:

You have 3 low-pressure areas threatening to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility. Yes, they’re not typhoons, just low-pressure areas that carry lots of rain causing widespread flooding, work disruption, and traffic.

It reminded me of the issues being thrown at the President by the opposition. Perhaps because President Rodrigo R. Duterte is still the most approved and most trusted government official in the country (Pulse Asia survey), none of these issues stick long enough to drag him down.
