Mel Sta. Maria to Duterte: Talo ka, Sir!
Abogado Mel Sta. Maria joins several members of the abogado community in disowning President Rodrigo Duterte. As a fellow abogado, many have expressed their disdain after the President called the constitution “toilet paper.”
Our high government officials, in arguing with critics , will resort to slander saying something like “Buang””, “Estupido”, “Bobo”, “Pakulung ko iyan”, “Gago Kayo”. SOCRATES said: “When debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.” TALO kayo sir.

Sta. Maria said that we have all seen this based on the Socratic method. The abogado explained that the losing side will use slander as tool.
This is relevant after Duterte threatened to imprison and cuss out his critics. He wrote, “When debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser. TALO kayo sir.”
Matagal nang loser yan!
