Conspiracy Theory

The powers that be are conspiring. We are currently having State sponsored doping in the SEA games!

Unbeknownst to the athletes the Philippines is fielding in the Games, they are being given performance enhancers in order to set of a string of victories. This is done without the consent nor the knowledge of the athletes, there being a lot of pride and honor among our athletes, plus the fact that an athlete who knowingly takes performance-enhancing drugs is less likely to perform as hard as one who is clean. Even the players are amazed at what they accomplish! And they can only be too happy. Even the rest of the Filipinos can just be too happy to bother questioning the rather unexpected turn of events. (not unlike the way Filipinos acted when Erap was deposed, and the Supreme Court ruling that GMA be sworn in. We were just too happy to question what now seems to be a potentially erroneous decision, or turn of events)

And why does the state do this? Because the Filipinos need something to be happy about. But not so fast, thats not where it ends. Someone has "leaked" to the officials of other ASEAN nations that there is cheating going on, and so now Thais suspect the Philippines is cheating.

Now, why would a doper in his right mind, leak such a story to their opponents? Well, a divided people can unite when faced with a common enemy. Having the Thais, or any other nation, act as agitators will make the Filipino people unite against an "enemy" that accuses them of ill behavior. [by unite, they mean forget the differences, of which there seem to be too many nowadays] To get things started, we now have the administration favorite, Miriam Santiago stoking the fires of outrage against the allegations. Unite against the common external enemy. Or so They think. That has yet to be seen in the coming days...

Note however that this is all part of the, Garci Resurrection production we are being treated to. Notice how Garcilliano was, just a couple of days ago, so eager and busy granting "exclusive" interviews to correspondents from the biggest mass media institutions? But the show must go on, and the main actor must bow out for another part of the production. And bow out he has done well. He's giving way to the NEWER news, all the while hoping that this NEW news and the upcoming holidays will make the people more apathetic towards him.

I can only wait in anticipation. What will come next?

What is this? Looks like another stoking is in the works, with the planned investigation of the alleged rigging.

But is the plan backfiring? Arroyo is usual suspect in cheating raps

I myself am beginning to question, with our growing medal tally, is it our Filipino-ness that is making the victories, our innate ability to beat the odds? Or is there something else going on behind the scenes?

Meanwhile, i need to get my head checked. The aliens are out to get me!
