KUNG WALANG CORONA, MAY HACIENDA
So, if the political allies of President Aquino II in Congress succeed in impeaching Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona, and then the former appoints a new Chief Justice of his personal choice from the yellow stable, then what difference and change will this bring now? Won't that new CJ be soon branded as an "Aquino Chief Justice" and the High Court an "Aquino Court?" That will certainly be the sure death of check and balance by the Supreme Court to the Office of the President - and that is really what this administration wants to happen for many obvious reasons. And now, a tall order burns ever so bright like yellow Christmas lights at the Palace: Impeach the Chief Justice at all costs!
Hence, this new slogan must be in place: Kung Walang Corona, May Hacienda.
