PDu30 is pleased with the results of the pro-death penalty votes but feels that it is not enough as what he promised during the campaign.

Plunder, Rape, and Homicide Next in Line
Alvarez discloses that the president wants plunder, rape with homicide, specifically, rape on children next to the death row sentence. The majority of lawmakers in the House agreed to limit the bill on drug-related offenses. This is to increase its chances of approval in the lower House. Plunder and rape are among the heinous crimes initially taken out.
Alvarez assures the President that plunder and rape make it to the amendments – once the senate approves the death penalty bill. Both are colleagues in the 11th congress. Thus, the close ties.
Reality of the Death Penalty
Other bills just to punish rape and plunder with capital punishment are also on the horizon. House leaders just want to be realistic about imposing the death penalty initially on drug-related offenses. Then they can pursue it for other offenses after learning more.
Following the dismay of netizens, the president vows to know the reason why heinous crimes are dropped from the death penalty bill. Alvarez’ explanations seem to satisfy the president. As a popular leader, no doubt that the people will just trust his judgment on this matter.

It is devastating for a young wife to experience husband’s disappearing acts that seems to be developing into a regular pattern. Not coming home just becomes so natural for him – and when home, he just play with his gadget or sleep. This is despite serious talks and giving all his demands to be comfortable and entertained at home. Understanding his old character also did not help especially when he promised to come home early and ended up not coming home for a week or two.
First thing that comes to mind is to hire a detective – but what can a detective do when he can’t even get into the highly secured work establishment of the person involved. Since work is the constant alibi, this will be just a waste of money. Another idea is to not give him allowance or cut off his smartphone subscription that often registers questionable transactions. This might make him angry but it has happened before that he did not mind calling after not coming home for a month or so, just because he did not have a mobile phone!
This behavior has not only brought psychological and emotional breakdowns to the wife – it has now giving her a progressive physical disability. It would be easier to just separate and file an annulment for abandonment – but when he finally comes home, it’s like nothing happened until the pattern revolves again! How can we help a loved one affected by this when keeping quite and tolerating the issue has now becoming very painful?
