Columns - A Cup O' Kapeng Barako
Saturday, 05 April 2008 11:09

Let’s take a quick break muna from B. HUSSEIN Osama, oops sorry, I mean, Senator Obama. I cannot seem to remember how to spell correctly Barack Hussein’s last name. Osama’s and Obama’s names sound and look so much alike. And, as y’all know Osama is America’s public enemy number one, and Obama is America’s frontrunner in the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination. And as Erap would say, "SAME-SAME."

 

Can you imagine a name like Barack HUSSEIN Osama, I mean, Obama, as the President of the United States of America?  Saddam HUSSEIN would be rolling over in his grave with laughter and Osama bin Laden would be giggling his butt off in his cave.

Really, I don’t think America would allow that.  Would ya?   So okay, as I said, let’s take a break muna from this guy.

Now and then, we, KUNO writers, get awesome and fabulous comments for our writings. And when that happens, all the pain and all the agonies of writing and the time spent on it become all worth it. This particular comment came from a Chicagoan, named Don Azarias.  He wrote: 

"Hi Jesse,

"Your most recent Cup ‘O Kapeng Barako column is a gem.  I think it is one of the best writings that you have penned since I started reading your column. You spoke the truth and nothing but the truth.  And, let’s face, the truth hurts … especially when it comes face to face with people like Senator Barack Obama, Tony Rezko and Reverend Jeremiah Wright who try to be what they are not.

"What you wrote was so brilliant, so elegant and unassailable.

"Keep it up!

"(Signed) Don Azarias"

Not all readers of my column agree with me.  In fact, many hate me, curse and despise me.  One lunatic even mailed a disfigured, feces-smeared of my photo and a typed hate letter along with it in unprintable language.
When I got this letter I was so kilig to the bones that the first thing I did was to share it with my Bestpren, Yoly T. of Chicago and said: “Check this out!” 

Yoly answered: “Don is like that.  He’ll tell you what he honestly thinks – suwerte mo at bilib siya sa ‘yo.”

I asked: Ikaw, hindi ka ba bilib sa akin?”

Yoly answered: Bestpren, need you ask?  Hindi ba obvious?  Of course naman … bilib na bilib!!!”

I answered: Ako rin.  Bilib na bilib  sa ‘yo.”

 

This next comment came from Singapore, from a lady there named, Dr. Carmelita C. Ballesteros, a teaching fellow at the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University.  She wrote:

"Dear Ka Jesse,

"I was so intrigued by the news item re Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s venomous sermon and Obama’s so-called eloquent defense that I took precious time out from my hectic teaching schedule to watch on YouTube both speech events.

"I agree with you, Ka Jesse.  Rev. Wright sounded like a WACKO.  And Obama didn’t impress me at all.  Modesty side, I can deliver a far more passionate speech than Obama.  Ha, ha, ha!  I was an orator, declaimer, and debater from high school till college.  I can also write original speeches.  There was nothing uplifting nor inspiring in Obama’s delivery or content.  Certainly doesn’t come anywhere near Dr. King’s “I have a Dream” speech.

"Ka Jesse, please continue with your de-construction of Obama.  It isn’t about an oratorical contest, is it?  If it were, I’m sure Denzel Washington can do a better job.

"Cheers,

"(Signed) Carmel"

Now this one came from Allan Albert of California.  He’s also columnist.  He wrote: “Makes you wonder if he just “vehemently condemned” the statements of Reverend Jeremiah Wright, for, you know, political showmanship.”  And this, from a guy who signed himself, “Ikocen”: Great piece. Too bad the USA press will not publish this honest assessment of one political hack.”

A reader said: "(It is) one of the best writings that you have penned since I started reading your column.  You spoke the truth and nothing but the truth . . .  the truth hurts … especially when it comes face to face with people like Senator Barack Obama, Tony Rezko and Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Of course not all readers of my column agree with me.  In fact, many hate me, curse me and despise me.  One lunatic even took the time to send through the mail a disfigured, feces-smeared of my photo and a typed hate letter along with it in unprintable language.  Though he tried to sound like an American, I knew right away he was a Filipino in the way he constructed his letter.  Carabao English kasi, eh.  And, like all COWARDS, he didn’t sign his name!

Here’s another letter, disagreeing with me, quoted en toto:  It’s a decent, intelligent letter, I think, compared to some of the crackpot letters I’ve gotten in the past:

"Did you actually watch the whole video?  The “chickens coming home to roost” comment was not by Wright, but his quoting the US ambassador.  If you are going to put so much emphasis on it, you better get your facts straight before you start mouthing off.  Look it up, watch the video.

"I find it SPOOKY that people use his middle name like you do … it’s a name given to him at birth.  So … that makes him a terrorist?

"Or, if he were a Muslim, then he would be a terrorist?!  Muslim = terrorist to you?

"The complete ignorance of posts (columns) like these, scare me a lot more than one politician.  They show a mass of people who can be led like sheep into a raging frenzy of hate and bigotry, while turning a blind eye to any FACTS that may be shown to them.

"To me, that’s scary.  That’s back to the Middle Ages."

This guy signed himself off, “joesassmonkey@gmail.com.”  Hey, Joe (whatever your name is), thanks for your comment.  Good luck to your boy, B. HUSSEIN Osama, oops, I mean, Obama.  Bet ya, he’s gonna lose.  JJ
