Ramdam ang Kaunlaran?

Is it just me or is the GMA administration INTENTIONALLY insulting both our intelligence and self-respect with these posters all over Metro Manila that show the visage of GMA with the tag-line “Ramdam ang Kaunlaran” (Translation: You can feel the economic progress). In the context of the rice, power, fuel, and food crises, this to me is more than distasteful, it is a slap on the face of every Filipino who groans under the weight of GMA’s “progress”.

Perhaps GMA is just being honest about her PERSONAL situation – She can feel the economic progress because it is only her and her family – legal, matrimonial, and official – who lives are improving under the GMA administration.

Adding insult to injury is the fact that it is our tax pesos that pay for those stupid posters.
