Stargazers Are In For A Triple Celestial Spectacle On June 18-27; 5 Planets Can Be Viewed In The Morning

Foreign Affairs Secretary Ted Locsin ordered the immediate repatriation of Pinoys in Sri Lanka who want to return home amid the ongoing economic crisis in the country. Locsin said, ”get them home! We have the money!” DFA probably is not afraid of where to get the money he is saying. It’s not really the problem of this administration, but the incoming BBM administration.

P-Duterte advised BBM to appoint a troubleshooter in his fight against illegal drugs. He should appoint a troubleshooter who shoots in times of trouble.

Skygazers are in for a triple celestial spectacle coming up this month of June, according to PAGASA. They will be treated to the sight of a supermoon, five-planet alignment, and meteor showers in the coming weeks. This month will provide a rare opportunity to view the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn at the same time in the eastern sky before sunrise, or at about 5 AM showcasing the stunning view of the planetary parade joined each day by the moon from June 18-27, together with the background constellations PAGASA added. Wow, wow, wow!

BBM is aware that the incoming administration has to “dig deep” in order to solve the corruption problem in the Philippines. He has to dig deeper into the P-Duterte administration.
***
He worked under Cory’s administration and was appointed as the new Finance Secretary by the new administration. Maybe Diokno can’t believe it. But BBM said that “It’s No Joke” to Mr. Diokno. Apo BBM is apo-litical.
***
Instead of new and higher taxes, the incoming Finance Secretary Diokno wants to focus on the new government tax administration during the first year of the 6-year BBM term. He said he is not worried about the government’s ballooning debt load noting that the economy can easily bring it down once the Gross Domestic Product grows by at least 6% to 7%. Obviously, he is not keen on criticizing P-Duterte’s P13 trillion debt left to BBM administration.
***
BBM said his administration will not tolerate any form of corruption in the government, especially in BIR and BOC. He said the economy will not succeed if the Bureau of Customs cannot collect duties and tariffs thoroughly and BIR will not have a good collection of taxes, both at the national and local levels. But the problem is that he is not going to investigate corruption in these departments during the P-Duterte administration. Has P-Duterte already pleaded to him to not pursue any investigation? How is that?
***
If he wishes, P-Duterte may join the incoming administration as its “drug czar,” BBM said. This probably will be the greatest mistake BBM will make at the onset of his administration. Just imagine, for six years, P-Duterte failed in his fight against illegal drugs. Meaning P-Duterte has no real capability to end the drug trade and had implemented the wrong program. Why not just copy his father Macoy, who put into firing squad all high profile drug lords and illegal drug traders. P-Duterte also ordered the killing of poor pushers and users, but not the high-profile drug lords.

President-elect BBM has set into motion a plan, he raised during the campaign to lower the price of rice to P20 without sacrificing the earnings of local farmers. Farmers’ groups have belittled Marcos’s pronouncement as nothing more than an empty campaign promise. One of the biggest challenges to this goal is the aging population of local farmers, which he attributed to the lack of interest of the youth in agriculture as a profession. Unfortunately, the farmers don’t want their children to become farmers too!
