As many computer users with online connections know, “Facebook” is a social-utility site that connects people with friends of old and new pals. People use the “Facebook” to keep up with friends, upload an unlimited number of photos and materials. Well, the Office of the Press Secretary of the Philippine President will reportedly launch a Filipino version of “Facebook” before Christmas 2009.


This reporter has yet to get a confirmation from Mrs. Arroyo’s press secretary or from the President herself of the actual launching date. But officials in Malacañang (presidential palace) say that the project will cement the legacy of President Arroyo in contributing to the complete computerization of Philippine-government functions and the online documentation of the varied tasks of government functionaries.


There are Filipino-American versions of the “Facebook.” For example, Allan Albert, the webmaster of this site, runs his “” that can be accessed at this URL:


Mrs. Arroyo’s version of the “Facebook” is called the “Fakebook.” It is expected to draw immediately thousands of members or subscribers – just from the Philippine-government circles alone.

“Fakebook” Members in Congress


M any members of the Philippine Congress are expected to join the “Fakebook,” where they can connect with the fake employees (AKA “ghost employees”) of their respective offices. Many will also upload the list of fake expenditures from their hundreds of millions of pesos in pork-barrel funds. The congressional “Fakebook” members intend also to post fake photographs of the bogus projects that they are constructing.


“Fakebook” Members in the COMELEC


M any former and present commissioners of the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) are reportedly ready to subscribe to Mrs. Arroyo’s “Fakebook” site. The COMELEC bigwigs and employees are allegedly ready to post the fake returns that they did for the 2004 presidential elections, where Mrs. Arroyo was declared the winner with more-than 1.0-million fake votes in plurality.


“Fakebook” Subscribers in Mike Arroyo’s Firms


T he cronies and lawyer-friends of the First Gentleman (FG) are also eager to join the “Fakebook” site. They will reportedly upload phantom projects and transactions where the FG (acting as the “Incredible Bulk”) allegedly received commissions and/or over-pricing incomes. The FG’s defenders say that posting the alleged deals made by Mike Arroyo will prove bogus the political opposition’s accusations against the Arroyo Family, such as those contained in this article,
The Arroyo Administration’s “Incredible Bulk”

“Fakebook” Members in the Military and Police


M any Filipino Army and police generals are eager to sign up as subscribers of Mrs. Arroyo’s “Fakebook” site. The military-and-police bigwigs are eager to post the numbers of fake communist and/or Muslim rebels that they have used to continue with their task of bloating the Defense-Department and police budgets. They will also post the bogus expenditures where they used the military aid from the United States in doing joint American-Philippine military exercises.


The Rasputins and rah-rah boys of President Arroyo say that the Filipino version of the “Facebook” will certainly usher in a “Wireless Revolution” and make the Philippines avail of the latest state-of-the-art electronic equipment and computer gadgets.
