Idiotic error calls for impeachment
In his Oct. 12 column, Conrado de Quiros wrote: “What idiocy is this that the Second Division (of the Supreme Court) had been deliberating on PAL’s second motion without knowing all along that the Third Division should really be doing it?”
This should conjure up the following ridiculous and equally idiotic situation. Here is a Grade 6 school teacher. One of his students should really be in first year college of law. He does not know this, although he is 18 years old and his classmates are only 12 years old. Anyway, he gives him a diploma for graduating from elementary school. But, somebody wrote a letter to him. So, he tells the student with an embarrassing grin, “Ay mali! I will have to take back your diploma. Go back to your real school, first year college of law.”
What should the PTA do with the teacher? Sack him, and make him go back to Teachers’ College. He does not even know the basics of teaching.
Need I say more about what should be done with the present members of the Supreme Court? I join De Quiros in the cry to impeach them all. This is the only way to save the institution by getting rid of people within it, who have apparently “sold their souls.”
