FROM THE BARREL OF MY PEN
By Gonzalo “Jun” Policarpio


AMERICA’S CHOICE: A MAN OF EXPERIENCE OR AN INEXPERIENCED BOY

Complaints from innocent Filipinos in need of sound immigration advice who fell prey to the advertising antics of a non-Filipino immigration lawyer have reached my desk. So what’s bugging them?

Because of anxiety about what’s really a simple immigration issue with a simple solution, these Filipinos told me they have been asked to pay the flamboyant lawyer an exhorbitant fee of about $250 to $300 for 10 minutes of information that you can get from the internet. That’s how a susceptible mind could succumb to a glib-tongued immigration predator.

Let’s go back to American politics where somehow the issue of a battle for the mind is relevant. The Clinton political machine finally crashed after suffering a humiliating defeat at the recent North Carolina primary vote. Almost all political analysts and the media itself say that there’s no way Hillary can win given the insurmountable number of pledged delegates for Obama.

Yet we learned that Hillary vows to fight on until the last vote is counted. Whatever happened to the “inevitable” president of the United States? Is she going out of her mind?

As in boxing, Hillary fought like a man. So she got knocked down like a man.

I recalled advising Hillary’s opponents to treat her as a male contender during the presidential contest. Her political strategy and tactics seemed to come out from a masculine mind.

Consider the attack on Obama’s confession of using drugs during his teens and twisting it to include selling drugs. Didn’t Bill Clinton also confess using marijuana?

I thank Sen. Barack Obama for stopping somebody who could be a dangerous American president. A senior fellow of Manhattan Institute named McWhorter writing for the NEW YORK SUN even described Hillary as a “monster” in his recent article.

Now we’ll see who wins in November to be the next president of the United States: inexperienced youth or a man of experience. Fellow Americans, there’s no sense taking the risk when our lives are at stake.
