Balimbing blossoms


Balimbing blossoms
Balimbing is the local name for Star Fruit or Carambola.
In Philippine politics, Balimbing, a fruit with many sides,  is often mentioned in the same breath as a turncoat---politicians who change political alliances every election season.

To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulne­ss while telling carefully constructe­d lies, to hold simultaneo­usly two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradict­ory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy …. – 1984 by George Orwell



Don't tell me what you're not, or what you're against! Tell me who you are and what you stand for. ~ Mario Cortes

It is said that every people has the Government it deserves. It is more to the point that every Government has the electorate it deserves; for the orator of the front bench can edify or debauch an ignorant electorate at will. ~ George Bernard Shaw
