Dear Steve Jobs...one Pinoy congressman loves you more than you will ever know.
4. Steve Jobs
Law low-down: In 2011, Representative Roilo Golez of the second district of Parañaque filed House Resolution No. 1795 to honor the late Apple co-founder. In an ABS-CBNNews.com report, Golez said he was "an Apple man and a Steve Jobs admirer since Macintosh in 1984 when he was one of the first few Filipinos who made a leap of faith and bought a Macintosh when most looked at it with skepticism." In the law's explanatory note, Golez wrote: "Steve Jobs also immensely enhanced the legislative process in Parliaments worldwide including in the Congress of the Philippines, elevated the quality of debate through easier access to crucial information."
Legal status: It's not yet a law. Somebody please Force Quit this thing ASAP.
Castelo castigates planking.
3. Plank it up
Law low-down: In 2011, Representative Winston Castelo of Quezon City's second district drew flak for his House Bill 5316 or "The Anti-Planking Act of 2011."
Legal status: Nobody is taking this bill seriously except Castelo himself. This goes to show that there are congressmen with too much time on their hands. Idle hands may be the devil's tools, but idle minds are the devil's comedy bar.
