CJ Corona Guilty

   At 20 against 3, Chief Justice Renato Corona is convicted guilty in violation of Article II from the 8 impeachment complain filed--where as he is charge of intentionally misrepresenting his Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net-worth (SALN). That's where all the basis of his impeachment are centered as required under Section 17, Article XI of the 1987 Constitution. 

   Note: 16 votes were needed to convict Corona and eight were required to acquit him.

Here's the vote breakdown:
Sen. Edgardo Angara - Guilty
Sen. Joker Arroyo - Not Guilty
Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano - Guilty
Sen. Pia Cayetano Guilty
Sen. Miriam Santiago - Not Guilty
Sen. Franklin Drilon - Guilty
Sen. Chiz Escudero - Guilty
Sen. Jinggoy Estrada - Guilty
Sen.  TG Guingona - Guilty
Sen. Gringo Honasan - Guilty
Sen. Ping Lacson - Guilty
Sen. Lito Lapid - Guilty
Sen. Loren Legarda - Guilty
Sen. Bongbong Marcos - Not Guilty
Sen. Sergio Osmeña III - Guilty
Sen. Francis Pangilinan - Guilty
Sen. Koko Pimentel - Guilty
Sen. Ralph Recto - Guilty
Sen. Bong Revilla -  Guilty  (The 16th " Guilty " vote.)
Sen. Tito Sotto - Guilty
Sen. Antonio Trillanes - Guilty
Sen. Manny Villar - Guilty
Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile - Guilty

    So after these what?  At the end of the day...after the 44 days drama what are the lessons learned? Does it really matter that he is convicted for ordinary citizen like me? I hope this will do more good than bad. I mean, it will surely change the political climate hence forward but will it bring more jobs? More food on our table? In short, ordinary men like me, will have to face life as it is...
    Pres. NoyNoy finally get what he want. So what are his victory plans? 
   Would it change anything at all if public officials correctly declared their SALN? Will the illusive transparency and accountability of government employees actually materialized, being the hype for this trial? 
    A painful process to begin...
