Super Illusion

By Flon Faurillo

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo have grand promises of bringing the country to the Enchanted Kingdom of economic development, creating “super-regions” and training “supermaids”, even as majority of the people are faced with joblessness, the rising cost of fuel and basic products, the utter lack if not absence of social services. Pres. Arroyo must think she has “super powers” herself as she and her political allies railroad charter change, brush off charges of corruption and human rights violations in the impeachment complaint and questions about her legitimacy. But dishing out such promises amidst the growing unrest and crisis, she might as well just be having super illusions.

literally means to underline; figuratively, to underscore or highlight.
