Now they cast their declaration of candidacy who will you vote?

From the ups and downs of just recently events, seriously who will you vote? Re-electionist that will again and again shut you up in the internet?

From the events that led to the TRO of Cybercrime law do you think the TRO is connected to the candidacy of these politicians? Or this is just a mere coincidence? How come that they are very certain that this law should be passed and be implemented but yet during the casting of their candidacy there is some miracle that at least someone from the Supreme Court listens that this law should be put into hold.

People of today are not as dumb it may seem, with the information all around them they read and they listen. The freedom to speak and be heard is still the way to a healthy society, an active opposition is still the nature of a healthy democracy which we Filipinos are very known for.

These are the Senators who authored the Cybercrime Law that should be carefully watched by the people. These will senators will eventually please you and court you for your vote but do not be deceived by their looks and charm, they will shut you up, online.

  1. Senators Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada
  2. Gregorio Honasan
  3. Panfilo “Ping” Lacson
  4. Lito Lapid
  5. Loren Legarda
  6. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel 3rd
  7. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr.
  8.  Vicente “Tito” Sotto 3rd
  9. Ralph Recto
  10. Manny Villar
  11. Edgardo Angara
  12.  Pia Cayetano
  13. Ferdinand “Bong Bong” Marcos Jr.
  14. Francis Escudero.

If you haven’t read the law read it here, RA 10175 Cybercrime Law

This is just public service reminder.

Tax Don’t Benefit Me: Why I Hate Taxes?

Who don’t hate tax? Maybe your country is very good in collection and making beneficial projects, but tax in the Philippines? You can’t feel a thing that you benefit something to it. It will just go to the pockets of some congressman or some mayor or maybe to some governors. I truly don’t care to where they go because ever since my parents tax is just grounds of corruption, grounds to take back what the politicians spend on their campaign.

Project in The Philippines

Government projects if not all, are like its movies, predictable. The only important for a politician is to remember him or her with its projects during its term; well the politicians make sure of that. Doing the project in the middle of summer and on a very slow manner they will finish project until the end of the year. This will make the people think that the person they voted has many projects because their roads are always been fixed. The realization that the seated official has only one project that caused you a lot of headache due to traffic, will only surfaced when it’s time to vote.

There is nothing bad with fixing roads but it’s better to do it fast.

Why Is It Not Fast?

On the first week they bore the roads with holes causing uneasy with the travel. Then they will stop, for no reason at all they will left for a couple of weeks with holes on the ground. Then they will come back this time one lane is not passable then again they will stop, the sun is shining, though its hot but it’s no excuse to stop . Then they will hurry for two weeks then after the west lane, the east lane they will bore holes and then stop then work again until the school year starts. Then there will be rain already and traffic, the people surely remember about your projects.

Just one question left me, why they stopped during the construction of roads are they not aware that it’s a national road?

Inappropriate Projects

It’s good to be environmental friendly but please think it through. In a tropical country wherein your season is dry season and wet season, your people can’t afford to have paper bags.

Why Paper bags is Not that Suitable For Tropical Countries

  1. Paper bags can easily melt and destroyed when wet.
  2. You can’t put cooked food in it, especially with sauce. (carinderia style).
  3. Hard to carry.

Not all people here has cars that they can put the paper bag in their hoods. Most of us take a ride and most of the paper bags has no handle to begin with so it’s a bit hard to carry paper bags around.

 

Eco-Bags

Eco bags are the best way over it but in a “tingi” style of commerce, where will you put a 5ml soy sauce? Where will you put a 10ml cooking oil? Still plastic is around so how will you go around it?

Then the project will be revised that the use of plastic will be limited use paper bags and eco bags.

I hate plastics as much as all of the Filipinos love to have a clean country, the problem is not plastic the use of plastic. Have a stronger policy regarding littering, implement it in schools and in public places. We all need is discipline, that’s all discipline.

Government hospitals are still the most feared hospital in all, so where your people go?

Policemen are still feared in the street, not respected but feared. Corrupt, trigger happy and just in the news, policemen are now bandits also. So who will you trust?

Teachers has low compensation and public schools is lacking of teachers.

So does your tax work for you? Where do you think the government spent your tax?

3rd Worst City To Go To – Welcome Philippines Mabuhay

It was all over the news well, maybe I will be happy when they surveyed non-Pinoy for these kind of ranking. It’s either backed it up with facts or do not publish it anymore. The credibility just gone low down to 3 points, maybe being a CNN website is just about it.

At first I didn’t take personally it’s not my problem anymore, I pay proper taxes and even the air I breathe is not safe to inhale. Philippines is a very interesting country but it’s not perfect. Give some credit to those people that really work hard in taking care of the environment and they don’t get any of the credit. The beauty of the place is its natural resources don’t look into the city, you will see just savage alligators wearing brown, blue and yellow.

From the time I heard the news, I can’t access the page anymore. Well maybe they have a lot of complaints because of that list. Fellow Pinoys, control your emotions, for me it is a challenge to us to make it better. Don’t rely on MMDA who are complaining with the list, they are just a bunch of whiners. I think they are not in the position to complain, guys in MMDA it’s good criticism, do your work first before you complain, the taxpayers should really complain the MMDA for the frustrating job they have.

Philippines is still beautiful to me, if only the government can command his troops and manage his people to do their job the least that we can make on that list.
