Car “dignity” speech backfires

Benicio Robinson

Speeches by lawmakers like Benicio Robinson, demanding more benefits for the fathers of the country, are causing a backlash even among fellow party members,

During the support of the budget hearing of the National Assembly, president of the budget commission Benicio Robinson recalled that, in 1984, when he was a substitute "they gave each deputy a car, all 71 of us should have a car."

He claimed that with a rented car, or government car, we who have come to represent our circuit in our area, cannot represent them with dignity. "I can't agree that we look down on ourselves,"

Balbina Herrera, former president of the national assembly, said that times have changed and we cannot make comparisons with realities of more than 15 years, emphasizing that the statements of her partner Benicio Robinson are regrettable and unfortunate.

Herrera emphasized that "if they want a car, they can buy it …you earn more than the common people in this country, and they buy it like all professionals in Panama do."

Some, say that deputies Benicio Robinson and Yanibel Ábrego have touched the most sensitive fibers of the Panamanian people, referring to statements by deputy Yanibel Ábrego, who confirmed that her cousin, the mayor of Capira, Juan Ramos, on the payroll of the National Assembly, and justified it by saying that he is not the only mayor in this country who has paid leave and is appointed in another government institution – double-dipping.

They are speeches that further stoke the hearth of national discontent, warn other voices because they add to the arguments that provoke the series of protests and citizen vigils in recent weeks, not only because of the electoral reforms but also because of the payroll and perks of the deputies.

Hermel Rodríguez, the spokesman for civil society, warns that "there is a great difference between what deputy Benicio Robinson interprets as a dignified representation and what the people really want to be a dignified representation of our deputies", we are not going to the polls every 5 years to elect kings and princes for our country, we are going to elect people who are really thinking about

legislating in favor of the majority and the poorest people in this country, added Rodríguez.

Meanwhile, Freddy Pittí said that “a person like Benicio Robinson, hurts the  country and its circuit, and the call is for the people of Boca to make this reflection: is this deputy is really representing us and looking for permanent solutions, or simply he is giving us a bag of food every 15 days to keep us happy ?."

Panama: Comments, Critics and Journalism Facts: Foreign coverage of a corrupt isthmus like Panama is game and fodder at every international level. There are so many points of entry it basically becomes a Satire. All this time, I did not really know I was taking pot shots as a... Satire Joker. I knew, I wanted to keep this a bit humorous and not take it too seriously. It was a balancing act between humor and the seriousness of these continuous crimes. Complications with grammar and one-line facts to keep it simple became another subject of interest. Mostly, the computer grammar checks and spelling did most of the work. In Panama, there are many admissions for their crimes... directly or indirectly. The facts speak for themselves and the complication of deepening crimes appear never ending. There are many elements to my writing style and appears to change with more experience. Sometimes, I have to explain and clarify some errors in my writings or personal feelings. In a way, I pioneered and contributed to the global journalists need for these elements. Elements of adding the various facts that were seriously flawed in one way or another. I criticized global journalism during Hillary Clinton's run for the presidency. I provided examples during my contribution of flawed political candidate's background. Adding the subjects in the beginning of the sentences and paragraphs for easier understanding. This created key notes in every sentence for me and paragraphs for global journalism. At first, I made a lot of errors with grammar and spellings while discovering improvements. Critics were abundant and not so merciful. In time, there appeared to be some recognition and the pressure was beginning to take effect. Panama politicians began to notice, I was a nuisance and were worried about their reputation. Panama National Assembly leaders began to realized they were attacked... and kept quiet. International Transparency became more aware of the devices of Panama's corruption! It was working... whatever I did, it was working. Panama was not my only target... China was next on my list. Yes, I had a vendetta, expose the truth! So, I created a long, long list of 10-20 and 30 lines of sentences or more of over looked facts affecting normal global trade and the U.S. prepping the Chinese global agendas. I was the one... publicly stating the sentencing lists of various facts pressingly and the world took notice. I would have gone after U.S. president Donald Trump in the same way for all of his flaws! But, I became aware that he was an exception with a flawed psychological mentality... I could not bring myself to attack this kind of person... but he was right on many issues! There were the Nicaragua attempts to build a Canal to compete with the Panama Canal Expansion. I pointed out two shifting underground fault lines that would have created a fiasco of financial difficulties for Nicaragua and Chinese investors. I simply used the Google map to find these fault lines... I don't remember what the lines were called. I mentioned it once... it was over and suddenly there was a China stock market crash. Yes, I have learned to look up the facts and fight with all my flaws but have learned along the way. There are still many global problems but the United States will not lose a war based on losing their market share to China! That would have happened quite early in the game, I can assure you! Panama, China and the Russia / Cuba league and alliance were all mentioned by me over the years. It was as if I had a gift of premonitions just by holding a... writing pen but on the key board! The world doesn't realize with all my flaws... I succeeded in expounding the corruption crisis. I have no intentions to come across anyone in a negative way, but sometimes it does happen. I make the necessary corrections as professionally as I can. One line sentencing, repetitions, Satire and obsessions / passion are all part of the elements. First subject nouns in every sentence and paragraphs and suspension points for emphasis, I adapted. It worked and it has been adapted around the on-line world of journalism. So, who is George Klk? I adapted this with... Who is Julian Assange? I adapted new words... counterpart, in question, and more, it seems I'm the template for new ideas for global journalism. I'm am not perfect, but as long as the political points comes across the most effective way, I feel I have succeeded to get the best accurate news across based on the facts in the clearest way possible. Stay tune for more... GK's Satirical global news facts with your morning breakfast.

Really George, you probably know a thing or two about Panamá, but your delivery is a turn-off. I can't piece together the cryptic crap to understand your message. Full sentences will do you well. And yeah, Panamá is totally corrupt.

Panama: Double Dipping Legal definition: Legal Definition of double dipping : the usually illicit practice of accepting income from two mutually exclusive sources (as from a government pension and a government salary or from two insurers for the same loss). Yanibel Abrego's own admission with no legal consequences!

Panama: I Don't Live in Panama, A Citizen but Not a Fool! Does anyone think I would get into a Political Satire and stay alive in Panama? Of course not, I play the rascal and get the political points across... Life or Death of an economy! I play the fool... but a Martinelli (LOCO) mafia politician who cries cancer for his delay legal tactics. The LOCO is respectable? How long does Panama tolerate the piles of Manure in their back yard? Get it? Who is it that is truly sick? The voice crying out in the wind or your everyday hustlers... Political Kings and Queens!

Panama: The Normal Intrusions of the Panama National Assembly Unquestioned. Panama National Assembly did things to initiate corruption at the government's infancy. Certainly, there was not much money around but certainly, milked the cow for all its worth. Modern days later, with the 2016 Panama Canal Expansion, a new Pot of Gold was born. A new era for the Panama mafia elites (Molirena party - lottery scandal) and their... Martinelli / State fund heists became the... new Jessi James era, but not those boring train robberies. First it was Martinelli to show the way it is really done... walk in and state the... BOSS! The rest was history, now the... NORM... is family payrolls and double dipping fraud schemes. Got to... Milk the Cow... enlist a Cattle Rancher - Manure business operator to get all the... Milk and with enough protests the... right price. Panama National Assembly decided it was time to take this a bit further while... Panamanians enjoyed their Milk and Hams. They decided to have a health legal debate to justify or not justify the Norms of family payrolls and double dipping in the price range of... 28 deputies / $51,000 monthly salaries. Panamanians know the price, but is it gibberish? That is a question for the sentient Panamanians. Yes, very important political debate... next, some headquarter mansion on that prime real estate former president Varela almost gave away for... China's headquarter. As if that wasn't enough... Varela and the China $50 million restaurant somehow found its way into Fourth Bridge construction project. Varela was not done yet... he loves China and apparently had some secret meeting in China... 26 non-transparent agreement along the way. Certainly... a lot of alcoholic beverages... something he had in common with China. Oh, the gibberish of facts turning Panama into a Cattle Ranching - Manure operation with China! Of course, I don't knock a respectable business from a corruption base political operation in my view! So, I will leave the audience to look for more interesting subjects for the critics... follow Trump and the Big Lie and he will join the Martinelli / P.N.A. party for your amusemments. Since you may not know how... well, I said enough. I already mention the details of that corruption. Maybe I should have started by head - lining the phrase as... gibberish of sentient wealthy Kings and Queens! In case the critics have not noticed, this is a bit of a... Satire: the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues. "The crude satire seems to be directed at the fashionable protest singers of the time". Now, Panama is truly educated. What have you done? Oh, just tanked the economy!
