The one where GMA gets my goat

Our president has gone bonkers. At the height of her unpopularity, with protest rallies and mobs from both administration and opposition uniting, all calling for her head, what does she persist in doing?

She's allowed the raising of Value Added Tax to 10%. Suddenly, diesel prices per liter are past P30, and gasoline per liter is close to P34. We can expect food prices to rise sharply, along with utilities like water, electricity, and public transportation.

It's only a matter of time now. *sigh* I've been proven wrong many times before, and I hope that this is another one of those times, but even I want President Arroyo out.
