Our Constitution and its Enforcement

In Opinión on 31 agosto 2009 at 1:48 AM

honduras-flag

Zelaya tried to change our constitution, and i guess many of us Honduras had a wish to see the movement of the water changing here in Honduras, only not in the illegal way Zelaya wanted to do it.

Remember that the change is the only constant in today’s world.

 

Let’s look at the facts:

We have a constitution that state that “All honduras are equal under the law, there shall be no discrimination among the people”, guess what?, a secondary law, “El Estatuto del Docente”, the teachers law, says that they are entitled to work only 200 days a year and are entitled to 365 days of payment plus the two extra payments every honduran is entitled to.

The  same is with doctors, nurses, university teachers, etcetera, etcetera.

Why does the constitution allow someone to get paid for 365 days of work after only actually working 200 (optimistic figure since they spend about half on strike), while the other have to work 313 days (365 – aprox 52 sundays). Private workers payment is based on performance while all those privileged groups have a payment based on times X the minimun wage. Private enterprise workers lost their job if they miss two consecutive days of work, while the teachers are allowed around 100 days a year on “strike”, i mean, they don’t work 165 days a year, why they don’t go on strike on those days. The doctors and higher level education providers are an überklass by themselves, a doctor work 4 hours shifts while making six times the minimun wage as their minimun income, most of them  work three shifts on different institutions for which they make, wow, 18 times the minimun wage per month, i wish i was a doctor, if you go to them they charge you that per hour. I dont need to tell you that getting sick in Honduras can let you in poverty.

I am not against them teachers and doctors getting rich , but hey, why the unequal treatment, if i lose two consecutive days of work  i am out without a dime, and those teacher “haraganes” can walk away with 100 days on strike and never have the fear of losing their  job. Someone Fire Them, the law is a contract, if they dont cover their part of the contract they should not be entitled to receive their pay, any good written contract  come with clauses enacted to make sure the two parties cover their responsability accordingly. Our constitution claim we are all equal, why is not enforced by law, those writing these laws should see the problem with it, you just can give better opportunities to 200,000 honduras above the rest, less at the expense of the state as those teachers and doctors are.

I educated myself on public education, and thank GOD,  teachers at my primary education years in my small town never seemed to lose a beat, and the “Estatuto del Docente” wasnt approved until i was on secondary education, they felt emboldened by that and started to lose some days. None of these “faltistas” was fired EVER. Why?

And you know what else, they don’t pay taxes on their payments, that’s why most doctors will not accept credit cards, that would their income visible to the state, so they mostly accept cash only and they report a few. Why don’t the Tax Administration enforce tax law to them?, why can’t i, a taxpayer call the teachers administration and make an inquiry about why they are not working, since i pay my taxes and those taxes are used to pay them? why in this country public servants dont have as their banner a good attention to the taxpayer since they are the ones paying for their wages. Why?

May i ask again.  Do we need a Change to the constitiuion, NO, we need them to get conscience. TOO MUCH TO ASK

Do we need another constitution, NO, we need to enforce the current one.

As a conservative i am against more law, but i also believe that failure to comply with the law should have consequences.

Should we change our constitution because of this?

 NO, but as Thomas Jefferson once said:

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

Partidos Agüiticos

A excepción del Partido Demócrata-Cristiano de Honduras todos los demás partidos políticos tienen “candigatos” en lugar de candidatos.

Les quita el sueño el llegar al poder pero no hacen ofertas reales, tiene miedo de seguir en línea recta las ideologías de sus partidos y en su lugar pretenden dar discursos aguados para apacentar al rebaño.

Señores, desde esta tribuna les indico que mi voto va a ser para el Sr. Felícito Avila en la papeleta para presidente.

Porque será que muchos de los amigos de Honduras en el extranjero tienen la visión más clara, vean:

NO Más Chavez

In Opinión on 26 agosto 2009 at 9:45 PM

Más de 60.000 usuarios de Facebook, una de las redes sociales más extendidas en la Red, apoyan y organizan esta jornada de protesta mundial contra el régimen del mandatario venezolano Hugo Chávez.

El grupo ‘No más Chávez!!!’ tiene a día de hoy muchos seguidores.  Se trata de personas de todo el mundo que apoyan el Día Mundial ‘No más Chávez’, que tendrá lugar el próximo día 4 de septiembre. Para ello, están utilizando todas las posibilidades de relación y organización de la red social Facebook para montar una protesta global contra el presidente venezolano.

Estas personas ultiman los detalles que permitirán que ese día todo el mundo vaya contra Chávez. Por el momento, hay previstas concentraciones en varias ciudades estadounidenses, como Nueva Orleans, Washington o San Francisco. Estos mismos usuarios utilizan además Facebook para compartir comentarios, videos, fotos, posts y montar foros de discusión (ya hay 123) con una tónica común, Hugo Chávez y su régimen populista. La crisis con Colombia y la posibilidad de que se esté desarrollando para distraer a los ciudadanos de los problemas del país parecen haber sido el detonante.

 

Los administradores del grupo convocan además protestas en toda Venezuela e invitan a que la gente acuda en masa a las puertas de las embajadas del país sudamericano en todo el mundo. Han hecho para fomentar la participación y la movilización un video en el que explican sus razones para gritar ‘No más Chávez’. Para ellos, el dirigente es “un comunista totalitario, militarista y demagogo que ha fallado a la hora de cumplir sus promesas, violado derechos humanos fundamentales,  entrometido en asuntos de otros países latinoamericanos, amenazado la economía venezolana y su democracia, silenciado ilegalmente a sus oponentes y desestabilizado los precios mundiales del petróleo”.

Zelaya el Hijo de un Asesino

In Opinión on 25 agosto 2009 at 10:35 PM

Encontré este artículo en el sitio web del “Comité de familiares de los Desaparecidos en Honduras” COFADEH. Si señores el COFADEH, los mismos que andan apoyando la restitución de Zelaya.

http://www.cofadeh.org/html/noticias/conmemoran_masacre_los_horcones.htm

….

La acción del maestro era acompañada por varios agentes del Departamento de Investigación Nacional (DIN), que vestidos de civil entraron al edificio, sacaron violentamente a los que se encontraban adentro y los llevaron a la hacienda “Los Horcones” propiedad de José Manuel Zelaya.

…..

Del crimen, los tribunales de justicia encontraron culpables al Mayor José Enrique Chinchilla, Subteniente Benjamín Plata, Manuel Zelaya y Carlos Bahr, quienes fueron remitidos a la Penitenciaría Central, sin embargo, salieron libres en 1980, favorecidos por el indulto otorgado por el gobierno.

El artículo  tácitamente involucra al padre del ex-presidente Zelaya con la masacre de los horcones. Y proviene de una fuente que apoya a Zelaya, definitivamente el mundo está alrevés.

Un indulto por familia es suficiente, no podemos aceptar que le vayan a dar ningún tipo de aministía a Zelaya, se merece pasar el tiempo que sea necesario en prisión para que pague todos su delitos, que le expropien sus haciendas, que le hagan un reparo por todo el despilfarro que hizo con el dinero del pueblo.

 Que nos dejen si Visa nuestros ex-aliados, pero sabemos que el pueblo de los Estados Unidos está con nosotros, lastimosamente tienen un presidente que persigue a sus amigos y deja hacer a sus enemigos.

Differences and Similarities of Political Parties in Honduras

In Opinión on 23 agosto 2009 at 9:22 PM

lo_horcones_big

As the son of a former deputy “Diputado” to the Honduran Congress (Partido Nacional- Santa Bárbara) i have been asked by many friends over many of my adults years what are those ideals my father fought for, because he always did politics in a different way. They always asked me what was to have every Partido Nacional Leader from Callejas up to “Pepe” Lobo visiting his humble house at every election, our small town only represents around 5000  to 6000 votes. But as a delegate to the national convention he was well connected and was always held in our native Santa Bárbara as a voice to be heard even at the dusk of his life.  He always taught the people by example and for a good reason, many of his friends came from the rival Liberal Party, even Efraín Bú Girón Congress Speaker at the time when Roberto Suazo Córdova was president, was his friend, a frienship that dated back to their time as classmates in Instituto Indepencia in Santa Bárbara. I always answer questions by telling them that his ideals were those that were written at the foundation of the party and that still at this time lie at his cornerstone on its statutes:

To sustain and uphold the Constitution of the Republic

To sustain untouchable the Honor, Self Determination and Freedom of the republic and its borders

To guarantee the following of the international treaties our country has signed, especially those relatives to the Human Rights Convention, the Internation Pact for Civil Rights and the Women Rights Convention

To Strengthen the national traditions, the respect for our heroes and to sustain the values of our national identity

To participate on every international organization whose objectives help the sustainment of freedom and democracy

To cooperate with every national institution whose end includes the sustainmet of democracy and social peace.

Fight for the commong good, to let every inhabitant able to find justice, freedom, culture, protection for his family and his economic and social well being.

To compulsively study the national stage to find solution to major problems that attack our society, to publicily explain them to the current authorities and to the citizenship as a whole.

Those are the most pertinent for Ideology, the other ones are mostly political. On these days, the Partido National discourse on my opinion, thru “Pepe” Lobo ambiguity doctrine is doing nothing to uphold the party guidelines. Even we at “El Pergamino de la Derecha” have written several articles against this ambiguous doctrine,

on May 10, Lobo que Ladra no Muerde https://gerardoparedes.wordpress.com/2009/05/10/lobo-que-ladra-no-muerde/

 How far has he gone from the clenched fist discourse he sought on the past election. Are ideals maleable? Are you allowed to change stance? Or its only when you really lack ideals that you can use whatever ideal you want?

Those questions are hard to answer, and personal.  “Pepe” Lobo, you should answer them.

The case is that from all political parties in Honduras 4 of them share a rightist view, only the UD which formed from the pieces of the former Communist Partiies. 

Partido Liberal: A center right party with a liberal view, an small percent of his base of about 2% has a leftist view

Partido Innovación y Unidad (PINU): It’s a social democrat party up to this moment they are not yet member of the socialist parties international union.

Partido Democrata Cristiano Hondureño:  As its name state it, its a Christian Democrat party very aligned with the rightist, conservative view the the Partido Nacional has, that’s why they are always aligned in congress.

Unificación Democrática (UD):  Its the only leftist institution, they formed from the shattered remains of the former underground Communist Party, they are receiving financial help from the FARC and other guerrilla organizations around the world.

I Intend to Keep My Oath, Are The Zelayistas Keeping Theirs

In Opinión on 22 agosto 2009 at 10:33 PM

At a time where we Hondurans are fighting external enemies, that want us to follow a path to our destruction as a free society, our friends in the United States of America are also fighting against a domestic enemy who want to take away their freedom to choose.  As if there is any freedom if you are not able to chose.

I want everyone of  you reading this that Honduras National Anthem its on itself an Oath that says:

¨Por guardar ese emblema divino
marcharemos¡Oh patria!a la muerte;
generosa será nuestra suerte
si morimos pensando en tu amor.
Defendiendo tu santa bandera,
y en tus pliegues gloriosos cubiertos,
serán muchos, Honduras, tus muertos,
pero todos caerán con honor.¨

Literally and badly translated, if anyone can help me with this:

To guard that divine symbol

we will gladly march to our death

a generous death we will have

if we died thinking about your love.

Defending your sacred Flag

their folds covered with glory

There will be many Honduras the dead

but everyone will fall in Honor.

 

and you know what.  I keep my Oath

Comparing Villeda Morales Coup against the current Constitutional Substitution

Micheletti, the Hero who chose to stand over tirany

Micheletti, the Hero who chose to stand over tirany

Many people are comparing the Coup D’etat against Honduran Ex-President Ramón Villeda Morales and the constitutional succesion done on June 28 2009.

At this link you can look at an article from October 11, 1963 where you can get the TIME Magazine scoop on what happened in Honduras, but now, after knowing how MSM bends the truth i look at it with a bit of skepticism, however you gain some insignt by reading it, but the article doesnt mention Morales ties with Castro:

http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,873087,00.html

Like this article does:

http://www.faqs.org/cia/docs/94/0000134253/HONDURAN-GOVERNMENT-CONCERNED-OVER-PRO-CASTRO-ACTIVITY.html

I guess Villeda Morales was so “worried” with Castro that he even tried to import some weapons caches into Honduras to support the communist revolution franchising through America Central.

The point is, Villeda Morales was strenghtening his ties with Communist thugs as Zelaya did, that’s where the simmilarities begin and where they end.  To start with the differences:

 Villeda Morales had studied his whole life, he was a Doctor with studies in Germany and Paris,  Zelaya was a “Burro” who finished secondary education by sheer luck,

Villeda Morales was removed from power by the military, Zelaya was removed from office on a court order, the order was executed by the military,

Villeda Morales “Civil Guard” soldiers died defending him, because they believed on his project, Zelaya, well, i am told by some friend in the military than those bodyguards turned their guns on Zelaya, they hated him, Zelaya is only too ashamed of that to tell the truth.

On the Case of Villeda Morales the Military took the power and a General was in charge of the country, in Zelaya’s case our institutions are intact.

To end with the differences even both Villeda Morales sons are trying to show to the world about what happened here and how that differs from what has done to their father:

http://www.latribuna.hn/web2.0/?p=29958

Even if the cause was the same, they was it was done it is much more civilized this time, and have the support from a big majority of the population. What part doesn’t the world understand.

We want to self govern, we don’t want any left licking entity like the OAS or any communist infiltrated organization to hold an inch of our country, if they are so outraged and are so democratic, let them rely on popular support, and give Xiomara Zelaya the  UD’s  Cesar Ham or Carlos H. Reyes spot at the votings and let the people decide.

We will keep working  and paying taxes while those vandals and  “vende patria” and teachers get it. I guess they are not that smart, that’s why they don’t like giving classes. And our best fraternal hug to every Honduran who is working to keep this country alive. Stand Firm and say it aloud, you should be proud, stand strong and alive.

Honduras is winning this war, and as from the beggining not  single drop of blood has fallen on the democratic government hands.  Zelaya, you owe the murillo family a Son, what are you going to do. You are going to get your due part in due time.

Of Life and Fighting for our Freedom

Nancy and Raquel Excursion

Nancy and Raquel Excursion

 

Life goes on better than expected. My day job is working as a logistics manager, on the past month we received visits from the three diferent suppliers, all of them were scared to death of coming to Honduras, one was a guy from Japan, another a Taiwanese Tire Trader and a freight forwarder from Miami. I was even able to put the Taiwanese at Hotel Sula, i guess he had a first look into the action of the mobs “pacifically manifestating” at the parque central in San Pedro Sula, i still remember his words, “Those guys manifestating are being paid, they only manifestate from 8 to 5”. Most of them were apalled that this country is calm, nothing like they see on the foreign media, i guess they only have mainstream media available to them and never read “El Heraldo” or “La Prensa”. They left Honduras with the knowledge that we are not in critical situation like they used to think, they understood our fight for freedom.

 

And OUR life goes on. This Satuday was Nancy’s Baby Shower, her workmates organized the event from 12 to 4 pm at Hotel Intercontinental, it was an informal meet, where everybody but Nancy paid around for their meal, lots of games, lots of good vibes, so we spend the evening there laughing and rejoicing on how Blessed will be our child.

In the past week we began our inter period lull on teaching at the university, Nancy won’t be teaching next period because she is seven months pregnant with our first child, a nice little human we chose to name Mariana Raquel a strong name because we want her to have a strong character and even stronger bond with GOD.  This sunday we stay late in bed, but around 11 AM we quickly planned a  trip to “Las Cuevas de Taulabé”  with a detour for lunch at “Lago de Yojoa”. 

Because of the current situation and all the “molote” the squirrel has been doing we skipped our trip last sunday, but today after i mentally shut out the squirrel nobody could stop us. So, the three of us, Nancy, our unborn child, Mariana Raquel and me, left on a trip to the caves.  You can’t imagine how beautiful and wonderful is Honduras, every shade of green you can imagine,  GOD blesses us with an special rainy season, where only rains from 3pm and upwards, we were able to drive there with the windows rolled down, we stopped around 1 pm on “Hotel Los Remos” at the Yojoa Lake, we spend about 1 hour and half there and Lps. 212.00 (about $ 11) for a meal of fried fish with platain slices and drinks for two (remember, at this time Raquel is still eating through Nancy).

We left the restaurant at 2:38 pm and arrived to “Las Cuevas de Taulabé” in a about half an hour, fees for entrance was Lps. 25.00 each (about $1.10) and we chose a nice guy called Nahúm  to lead us on the tour through the caves, he charged us a “voluntary” fee of Lps. 50.00 (about $2.60) for about 1 hour of walking and guiding us inside the cave.

An amazing trip that made us forgot about the squirrel and his friends, apparently they also took a vacation on this sunday since they worked so hard on saturday, remembering the boy that Zelaya got killed at Toncontín.

angel_peq

I strongly believe that my current actions will mark the future my child will have, and i don’t want her to not be able to chose a future of her own.  What someone needs to keep growing as a human being, is a stable government who doesnt get too much into your life, that’s what we currently have,  the squirrel pounded us with his lies, he was troubling, perharps my child someday will learn that the fight for her freedom to choose started on June 28, 2009.  I don’t want a big communist state to tell me what can i buy or what i can’t buy at the grocery store, that’s part of my freedom.

Honduras, In this fight there are those who are with you and those who are against you, may the first win, because those are the ones who love you most.

Gentlemen, our children future is at stake, don’t stay scared at home, let’s put our economy to work.  And if our efforts fail, remember than the path to democracy is stained with the blood of those who fought for it. Stay Alert

 

 

 

Most Famous Squirrel of LATAM

The Omnipresent Squirrel

The Omnipresent Squirrel

 

The Squirrel does it again

 Dear Friends:

 I am asking for your help, i need something to clear out of my mind, there is this squirrel i get everytime inside my mind, and my Television, i just can’t  avoid  it, that squirrel just keep appearing inside my mental picture frame.

Ladies and Gentlemen, i want to introduce you to the most known “metiche” squirrel in the whole Latin American area, that squirrel’s name is Manuel Zelaya Rosales, he was the president of Honduras until he started claiming the “People’s desire for his second term in office“, our constituion, which has a life of his own, acted to protect herself from further violation and in accordance with the laws of the republic and under a state of necessity,  decided knowingly to violate one of his articles to sustain the other 373 articles intact, and exiled this squirrel to Costa Rica on the morning of  June 28, 2009 because of the fear angry mobs could cause a bloodbath.

On a perfect world with right leaning  governments this would have gone unnoticed, the squirrel was the president of a tiny country in Central Americal whose GDP is lower than any state in the American Union and the squirrel just had 5 more months left to govern this little country, but the squirrel had powerful friends, a lefty bully who has a big stage on this world, a bully who rules (not govern, he rules Venezuela) a country that has petroleum. This Bully has used his international plataform and state run media to press a disinformation campaign that has made many countries around the world have frozen their ties with the current Honduran government because of the misinformation campaign waged by Chavez and the Squirrel. 

However we are not in a perfect world, we live in an upside down world, a world that as described in the bible is about to come to its end. And this current upside down world idolatres dictators while punishes the fight for freedom.

The squirrel is SO patriotic that his desire is,  that every country in the world shut their doors to the very people he is supposedly trying to protect from a “de facto” regime and democratically “govern” forever and ever until the sun is dark in the sky.

The Squirrel is SO democratic that he is trying to mark as void the following elections that the current “de facto” regime has programmed for November 29, the same date that was set before his exile. Imagine, a democrat who doesn’t want elections!!! Unbeliveable, we should put this squirrel’s picture under the democrat word in the dictionary.

He is SO brave that surrounded by 100 hundred supporters he was only able to set the tip of his foot inside his country, so brave that himself alone in a narco plane tried to create a massacre and only  got one poor guy killed by his owm mob at the Toncontín Airport. This was nothing compared to the massacre of the “Horcones” in which his family is involved and got 14 people massacred for a bunch of forest at his hometown in Olancho.

It is true the events of June 28 appear troubling to most people around the world, just the tought of having the president removed by force by the armed forces it is an uncompatible picture never to be seen at our allied countries. But as impossible as that seems, what can you do with a president who completely and recklessly avoids the rule of law. Imagine for a moment, what would you do if the president of the biggest corporation in your country decided against anyone wishes, even those of the whole board of directors and and the general assembly of shareholders to sell the company properties for 2 Cents, imagine that there is even a court order restraining him from doing so, imagine also that he has a personal army  (The Presidential Guard in the squirrel’s case) of about 1000 thousand people, would you trust on sending the police to arrest him? this guy was the manager of the biggest corporation on the country, the honduran government employs 140,000 people, far bigger than anything, could you trust any politically sided organization to be able to comply with the arrest warrant?.

NO

Of course you would use the most apolitical institution you could use to arrest him. Of course not many of you know that in this country where the squirrel was born, the military don’t cast votes, the military is prohibited under the constitution to vote on elections, to keep them as apolitical as possible. Maybe our constitution and democracy its inmature but that’s the way it was written.

 But this squirrel owner, Chavez, has deep pockets, he has given the squirrel a plane, cell phones and drug money so he can finance his tour around the world smearing Honduras image.

If you see him, he wears a mustache and is cheeky from the good life he is having on Venezuela’s people money. I am tired of this squirrel, i am turning off my tv, the internet, the telephone and my brain now as not to see him anymore. If you casually get to see this squirrel, get off camera, he is the girl from “The Ring” the movie, it will crawl out the TV and get into your brain.  I am not to blame if you receive a call telling you are being bombed by Zelayistas after you see his picture. No one can make liable for your choices. Hate him and leave it, that´s the only way out.
If you can throw a digital rotten egg at that Squirrel, DO IT!!!,  he hates everything american, yet he call for american intervention in Honduras.  Double Standard, Liar. Did i forgot to tell you the squirrel is a liar, well, that would be the subject of another writing.
