  2. Thanks for Abrenian.com and all “informers” for the ideas and issues raised this year, and thank you for the blessings Abra has received for the past year although it is not as much as we want due to these corrupt politicians.

    • I thank God for Eric Bringas. May I borrow the words in the home page of Abrenian.com – “This site has dared to bring information about the province of Abra that otherwise would never have been reported. It is a medium for those who are at times frustrated by violence and corruption that seems unabated despite numerous changing of the guards”. When peace and prosperity comes to Abra through honest and competent governance, Abrenos all over the world will remember you as the person who provided a venue for the many voices of change. May your tribe increase. God bless.

  4. Thanks for asking ES, I am doing well but no thanks for the lecture about politics. Before i entered politics I knew very well the mechanics and customized “ingredients” to win. I had the money and the people but opted not go for a gangland style of politics….not my character and simply goes against my beliefs. It was easy for me to call the shots but what good will I gain and what kind of leadership will I project if I resort to that kind of politics. I offered everything to my fellow townfolks, all the good things that Can be done, all the things that are sustainable and all the things that our IRA and LGU can provide yet my townmates had voted and decided otherwise for reasons only the voters can answer. I started and finished the campaign without a single centavo spent to buy or bribe a voter and that I am very proud of myself and my team. My resources were spent for the well being and upliftment of the people. and it was money well spent in a way that I was able to see them no matter how remote their abode, i was able to talk and listen to them, i was able to care for them, i was able to help them in my little own ways, I was able to treat them of their sickness, and I was able to give them hope that yes change is possible and that yes this kind of campaign and politics (peaceful ) is still alive. But all of these things meant little importance to them because the culture of Abra politics is deep rooted and well accepted by many. it is crooked and cruel, bloody and lavishly expensive, I tried to change it but I failed.

    I am at peace with everyone as far as I know but there may be a few who doesnt like me but i wont and i cant please everyone. Life is good and it is always a blessing doing something worthwhile in everyday to my fellow human being. A.Com browsing is part of my morning coffee break, it makes me laugh and smile, irritated and angry but ultimately happy because everyone can speak out, the pros and cons and it shows that democracy and freedom of speech is alive at least here at A.Com. Cheers to all and Thank you Sysop. There is hope and a new dawn of change will come, we like it or not.

    • Well and good try ur luck again by 2016

      Posted by eric shawn | November 30, 2013, 5:55 am
    • Hold your head high, Sir Neil. You may have lost the elections but you never lost your dignity and self-respect. Unlike bread, dignity and self-respect are very rare commodities in Abra. As the old saying goes, “we can bring the horse to the water, but we cannot force it to drink”. You provided the electorate with a very clear choice. Unfortunately, the people were not ready for genuine change. Be that as it may, I commend you for taking the high road. You are right, Our fight against wolves will never justify our being wolves ourselves. I agree absolutely that there are people who will not like you and that you cannot please everyone. Sir, Neil, please take comfort in the words of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, ” Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; give the world the best you got anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; it was never between you and them anyway”. May God bless you, Sir Neil.You are a rarity in this broken world.

  5. I’ll do my best to campaign 4 you also. Hopefully, our president or enfluencial groups coming from different religious groups and NGOs could see your noble purpose and will endorse your candidacy by 2016. Don’t just stay in your municipality. The late senator Osias failed in his attempt for provincial position but victorious as candidate for senator. I believe with God, nothing is impossible. We trust that He is faithful when The Lord said ” ask, and it will be given……….Matthew 7:7. Together we keep on asking and continue to keep our trust.God bless.

  7. The Pilgrim Fathers did established a traditions so that America became great when they put God first in everything they do. The seeds they have in their voyage was not in anyway touched. They preserve it for the future generation even though some of them died of starvation along the way. After settling in the continent of America and gut a bountiful harvest, they offered the best in the altar. Such devotions was inscribed in the Thanksgiving Day. I watched the program of Bro Eddie Villanueva last night. Their group encourages a national fasting and repentance to seek out to God’s intervention in our life just like what He did in the early days of American History. Filipinos though the so called only christian country in Asia perhaps are loosing our grip to God when we put material things so much over spirituality.

    • That’s right Naeling! You can not serve two masters (God and Money). Either you will hate one and love the other. Although God wants us to live abundantly and acquire a lot of material wealth, it doesn’t mean that we will idolize it or totally in love with it like to our idols or spouses, more than we idolize Him for He is a jealous God. If we do it, we will violate a lot of his will that will endanger our spiritual needs.

      Posted by kalapati | December 2, 2013, 6:12 pm
      • Pagayam Kalapati, a lot of us here in a.com wanted to change the present system of Abra politics. Marami rin nga pahayat at batuhan ng akusasyun. But if we were to analyze, it boils down to this one point; our relationship to God was severely damaged due to greediness of wealth and power. We can only solved all of this if our leaders will turn their back to evil ways and serve the people sincerely. I will stick to this idea, and on this little way, perhaps we can change the heart of our leaders. Saint Paul was a dreaded persecutor of the early Christians, but when he was touched by the spirit of God, Paul change direction and spearheaded the march of Christianity in Rome. Congressman Pacquiao was a nobody and just came out elsewhere. He can be a good political leader if he will be true to what he openly preaches, “Love God more than anything else”.

        Posted by naeling | December 2, 2013, 7:30 pm
        • I observed that these thief politicians already showed to the whole world of what they were capable of. But it’s ironic that they are still a victim of greed and power that shows no concern with the dreadful effect of bad karma. It’s been proven from time to time that “If you do good things, good things happen but if you do bad things, bad things happen” but it’s so sad that they are still refusing to accept the fact. When they are about to give up their last breath, do you think they’re are still thankful with their prostituted wealth especially when they realized how bad the things they did or still doing in life? I think Pacquiao is far smarter although he is just far less-educated/intelligent than them. Reason being is, he knows or learned from the Word of God that from that very last moment of our life, we will no longer care or give a damn with our material wealth but instead grasping for forgiveness that God will not prolonging our agony nor allowing us to endure more excruciating pain as a punishment in making the lives of God’s people miserable in the most unthinkable highest degree. But I think the best option is still available by renewing our mind.

          Posted by kalapati | December 3, 2013, 5:57 pm
        • Let me give you a story pagayam Kalapati. A father gut irked with a noise created by a neighbors’ hen while asleep. The father sling shot the chicken and presto a “tinola” was at the dining table. While calling at the children to enjoy the foodstuff he prepared, the mother reprimanded him and disallowed the children take part on the abominable food saying, ” I will not allow my children to ate anything that came from illicit sources”. The mother protected the children somehow. The father ended up with a miserable life, while the children become successful professionals and family person. How about our leaders who prostituted public funds for their own welfare? where is their conscience?. Could they still sleep soundly and smile profoundly?. Again, may we remind our leaders: Life is so short, make it meaningful by serving the greater good. You will be remembered because of your good deeds and so your descendants will prosper as well.

          Posted by naeling | December 3, 2013, 9:20 pm
        • Correct me if I’m wrong pagayam Naeling, that if idolizing money or any material things first before God is the same as stressing yourself because of the lack of it, which either way money is already considered as your Master in life. As a result, we feel devastated, worried, and so sad in devoting our time on planning how to get it in order to satisfy our emergency needs. Of course idolizing your stolen wealth is different for God is already out of the equation but the lack of it, using your precious time thinking without involving God on your plans on how to get it, is ridiculous. Do you think that this alone will justify money as our Master rather than God? If so, then we even have no right to think that poverty and killings in the province are real and just devote our time in working and praying hard trusting God will supply our needs including His Divine protection against the forces of darkness, criminal and thief politicians included.
          If this happens my friend, if at least 55% residents in every municipality will become true believers even if they are belonged to the different religions, and if at least 2% of our military force could provide us ample protection from harrassment that leads to vote buying during election, I have no doubt in my mind that all kind-hearted individuals, with courage or will to do the right thing will emerge to be our front candidates when election comes. Why? if this 55% will be like you and Tagamasid, who are true believers of God, fearless in offering your life in the name of Jesus Christ, do you think they are still fearful in confronting the ugly vicious face of these thief politicians including their bodyguards? Why don’t you share with them the solid truth “that if you put God first or always in your mind….you can no longer feel fears or worries to any kind of problems (financial or physical) or anything that the material world has yet to offer”.
          Good night my brother….God bless your heart!

        • Pagayam Pamulinawen, our subject matter directly pinpoints to politicians who misused public funds. We are bombarded with anomalies on PDAP, DAP, SARO involving national leaders, the DVM and COA all of which are parts of evil governance in the Philippine setting. As Kalapti said, this is an outright greediness where the lives of the people were sacrificed for the good of a few. This is evils at work in broad daylight. Abra politicians has their own way of taking peoples’ life and money for their own purposes and well being. On the individual level, to seek material things is a natural human values. Meaning, God gives this innate desire to his children. The question is, what do we prioritized. If we became obsessed with material things, then we are no better that animals. Humans has a spirit where love is the center of our being. Here is an analogy, “A mother and child was starving for a week now, suddenly they found a piece of bread. The mother will surely give the bread to the child at her expense”. The same situation will happen to a mother dog and it will be the other way around”. That is the difference between humans and animals. There are cases when one works hard for 24 hours but the “Pagbagasan” is still empty. The other works only for about 8 hours and still earns ten times than the former. This is a case of who gets the blessings of heaven or shall we say “karma”. Some churches exhibits progressiveness than the others because they encouraged their members to do tithes. The scripture said, ” Give unto God what is for God”. Offerings is a very important traditions that allows us to be connected to God through material things. Strive first for the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things (wealth) will be given to you as well (Matthew 6:33). The thing is, love God above all and surely He will not going to forsake us.

        • Involvement in politics is actually a predestined call to some, and a product of a strong foundation worked on by others. Apo Takit was a product of an established foundation. Pagayam Mario Bang once said “Pinakaswerte ” because the position was offered to him on a silver platter. Grace Padaca of Isabela was an example of foundational politics to get the position against tall odds. If somebody here in a.com be elected as Governor then so be it. But for now, we are aiming the shortcut way. To educate our political leaders to be a true person, a God fearing individual. Everybody has a conscience, the secret agent of God in every person. Listening to the conscience is of great help in overcoming the selfishness in us. Apo Takit, this is actually my first time to call a name. You were being accused particularly by Ka Eric Shawn as a leader who always playing safe and making substandard projects. We beseech you to listen to the voice of your conscience. Seek out to God for enlightenment and guidance. To be a good leader, you need to have a strong relationship to God. Something that you can say “God is real”. Only by then that you can make a difference in the life of our fellow Armenians. This call may be insignificant. We in a.com who longed for change maybe insignificant, but the truth of God is real and is always a part of our life. God bless you.

  11. We thank the Lord for His coming; without Him, we are doomed to the eternal fire because we are all sinners. Thank you also sir Sysop n fellow participants in this A. Com (less those who took advantage to chismis n insulting others) for sharing your thoughts for us who love to learn. For those who love the value of glitters more than God n fellowmen, remember that the most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or touched but felt in the heart, amongst: compassion, peace n Righteuosness. These are our tickets to present not the volume of money we have, to the Savior when we will meet Him in His return.
