Deliver Us from Evelio’s Debt

Do you know that everyday the city of Bacolod will have to pay P3,000 in the next 25 years to pay off its debt from its three creditor banks?

Every Bacoleño voter will have to shell out P4,500 to pay the nearly P1 billion in debt incurred by Evelio Leonardia when he was sitting on his throne as mayor. A loan he made in the name of us, the people of Bacolod. Bank loans that he got to finance his grandiose but very questionable infrastructure projects which had not benefitted the people but only his ego.

Bing’s Act of Desperation

Last week’s incident that saw the apprehension of campaigners of Rep. Evelio Leonardia caught red handed with black propaganda materials smack into signs of desperation.

Black propaganda in argumentation is a form of personality attack. In Latin it is called “argumentum ad hominem”, the weakest of all arguments. It is only utilized if one runs out of arguments. In short, in times when one is desperate. And desperate indeed is Bing Leonardia.

‘It’s a Slang’

“It’s a slang.” With this explanation, leading presidential contender Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte yesterday said.

“I will not apologize. I was not insulting the Australian woman. It was a derogation of the act of rape. It’s a slang actually. A word na una pa ka yo sa mayor. Its derogation belittling their manhood,” Duterte said.

Bing Lies

Not only is the congressman of Bacolod known for his political disloyalty but also his penchant to tell lies.

Bing Leonardia turned his back on his political godfather the late Governor and Mayor Alfredo Montelibano Jr., as well as former Cong. and Mayor Romeo Guanzon to pursue his soaring political ambitions.

Lately, Leonardia has a new poltical strategy- tell lies. He tells lies in his pursuit of returning to City Hall after only finishing his three-year term in Congress without filing anything of national significance.

Leonardia’s lies during this political season is told through his radio barkers. It cannot be denied that what these barkers spew out on their radio programs have clearance from their political boss, in these case Bing Leonardia. He talks through them.
