Politica talaga...ano kaya ang mangyayari...election na naman2005....or coup or military takeover...
kung ako ang gobyerno ngayon itataas ko ang lahat ng sahod ng teachers, pulis, army etc...bakit para tumino ang bansa natin...para wala nang kurakot at saan kukunin ang pera...kalilutan na ang nakaraan ang mga political paties ay maging isa na lang -mamimili na lang sila ng Presidente natin na talagang -security ng bansa ang aasikasuhin-para maraming mag-invest...noong panahon ni Marcos...maraming mahirap, pero kakaunti ang mag-nanakaw, kumakain sila ng pinaghirapan nila...hindi galing sa masama...sana ang mga goverment officials natin ay maging mabuting mag-silbi sa atin, hindi naman importanteng yumaman...ang importante siguro ay mabawasan ang mahihirap-sila ang dapat tulungan hindi ang mayayaman...

Travel time: 66 lawmakers abroad
By Jess Diaz
The Philippine Star 06/20/2005
Now that Congress is in its mandatory adjournment before its next regular session which begins on July 25, it is travel, vacation and sight-seeing time for lawmakers, courtesy of taxpayers.
At least 66 members of the House of Representatives and two of its officials are in the United States, Europe and China, while five others are leaving this week for Sweden.
Lawmakers and House officials travel business class and are given a daily per diem of $300. Business class fare to Europe and the US costs at least $2,000. Assuming that those on travel were given per diem for one week, which is certainly short for those in the US and Europe, each House member collected $2,100 in travel allowances. This means that taxpayers are spending nearly $300,000 (more than P16 million) for all those on travel.
Leading the pack is Speaker Jose de Venecia Jr., who is on an official visit in Paris, France and London, England. The members of his delegation are Representatives Janette Garin and Rolex Suplico of Iloilo, Monico Puentevella of Bacolod City and Juan Miguel Zubiri of Bukidnon.
The group is now in London, where De Venecia pleaded for debt relief for the Philippines with British officials. The plea came one week late. Two days before the De Venecia group left Manila last Monday, finance ministers of rich nations met in London and granted debt relief worth billions of dollars to poor nations, excluding the Philippines, which in deep in debt.
A mission led by Rep. Satur Ocampo of the party-list group Bayan Muna is headed for the Netherlands to explore the resumption of peace talks with the communist-led National Democratic Front.
The Ocampo team is composed of Representatives Arthur Defensor of Iloilo and Lorenzo Tañada III of Quezon, who are scheduled to go first to London before proceeding to Amsterdam.
A delegation from the female legislators’ group is in Germany. It is made up of Mary Ann Susano of Quezon City, Clavel Martinez of Cebu, Uliran Joaquin of Laguna, Victoria Reyes of Batangas, Amelita Villarosa of Mindoro Occidental, Lorna Silverio of Bulacan, and Herminia Ramiro of Misamis Oriental, and Emmylou Talino Santos of North Cotabato.
They were joined by Hermilando Mandanas of Batangas, Jesus Reynaldo Aquino of Pampanga and Jose Carlos of Valenzuela City.
Another delegation is in Chile. It is composed of Carmen Cari of Leyte, Corazon Malanyaon of Davao Oriental, Remedios Petilla of Leyte, Josefina Joson of Nueva Ecija, Cynthia Villar of Las Piñas, Reylina Nicolas of Bulacan, Milagros Magsaysay of Zambales, Belma Cabilao of Zamboanga Sibugay, and Faysa Dumarpa of Lanao del Sur.
Other House members who are in other parts of Europe (Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, and Austria) are Eduardo Veloso of Leyte, Rodolfo Albano III of Isabela, Luis Bersamin Jr. of Abra, Emilio Espinosa of Masbate, Eduardo Gullas of Cebu, Roseller Barinaga of Zamboanga del Norte, and Ferjenel Biron of Iloilo.
Barinaga chairs the committee on labor. He heads the annual delegation of the International Labor Organization conference in Geneva, Switzerland. He had requested for travel authority for 36 committee members. Some of those who went to Geneva have already returned. One of them is Rep. Teodoro Casiño of Bayan Muna.
Others who are headed for Geneva are Crispin Beltran of Anakpawis, Renato Magtubo of Partido ng Manggagawa, and Edgar Espinosa of Guimaras.
Those who are in the United States are Gregorio Ipong of North Cotabato, Alipio Badelles of Lanao del Norte, Roger Mercado of Leyte, Constantino Jaraula of Cagayan de Oro, Jesli Lapus of Tarlac, Antonio Serapio of Valenzuela City, Arrel Olano of Davao del Norte, Leonila Chavez of Butil, Ernesto Clarete of Misamis Occidental, Raul del Mar of Cebu City, Oscar Malapitan of Caloocan City, Manuel Mamba of Cagayan, Junie Cua of Quirino, Isidoro Real of Zamboanga del Sur, Claude Bautista of Davao del Sur, and Robert Ace Barbers of Surigao del Norte.
Also in the US is House secretary general Roberto Nazareno and Natalia Fernandez, head of the chamber’s international parliamentary relations service (IPRS).
Nerissa Soon Ruiz of Cebu, Ernesto Gidaya of Veterans’ Party, Anthony Miranda of Isabela, Jose Solis of Sorsogon, Justin Marc Chipeco of Laguna, and Jaime Lopez and Ernesto Nieva of Manila are in China, while Eduardo Zialcita of Parañaque is in Seoul, South Korea.
Five congressmen from the Cordillera region are set to leave for Stockholm this week. They are Lawrence Wacnang of Kalinga, Victor Dominguez of Mt. Province, Soloman Chungalao of Ifugao, Samuel Dangwa of Benguet, and Elias Bulut of Apayao.
Five others have travel authority and may have already left the country. They are Raul Gonzalez Jr. of Iloilo City, Marcos Cojuangco of Pangasinan, Faustino Dy III of Isabela, Loretta Rosales of Akbayan, and Liza Maza of Gabriela.
The STAR compiled the list of those on travel or are leaving for abroad from sources in the IPRS and the committee on accounts, the panel that manages House funds and pays out per diems. The House is usually secretive about its members’ and officials’ foreign trips.

i was just reading this link:
this struck me, and this was 100 years ago.......
The first organic act, known as the Philippine Bill of 1902, was passed by the U.S. Congress. It called for the management of Phillipine affairs, upon restoration of peace, by establishing the first elective Philippine Assembly and the Taft Commission comprising the lower and upper house, respectively, of the Philippine Legislature. The passage of the Act may be attributed in part to José Rizal and his stirring last farewell to his beloved country immortalized in his poem, Mi Ultimo Adios, that he wrote in his cell at Fort Santiago on the eve of his execution by the Spaniards on December 30, 1896. At first, there was strong opposition to the passage of the bill from misinformed members of the House, some of whom referred to the Filipinos as "barbarians" incapable of self government. Thereupon, Congressman Henry A. Cooper of Wisconsin took the floor and recited Rizal's last farewell before a skeptical House. Silence soon pervaded the floor as Cooper, eyes moist with tears and voice deep with emotion, recited the poem stanza by stanza. Soon after his recitation, Cooper thunderously asked his colleagues might there be a future for such a barbaric, uncivilized people who had given the world a noble man as Rizal. The vote was taken on the bill, and passed the House.
War ended in the Philippines, with more than 4,200 U.S. soldiers, 20,000 Filipino soldiers, and 200,000 Filipino civilians

I always thought that Jose Rizal being our national hero was pre-ordained or wrapped up in conspiracy.
remember Rizal is more of a pacifist and do not want to strain relations with Spain. Uncle Toms cabin mentality.
I strongly for Andres Bonifacio as our National Hero!
A great malay who will fight and not afraid to give his last drop of blood even after being betrayed by Aguinaldo.

bakit nga ba tayong mga pinoy kapag nasa ibang bansa ay nagiging masunurin sa mga batas nila ? nagiging matitino.
June 21st, 2005, 08:57 PM
maybe we were pre-ordained to live in poverty!
after ww2, when the USA relinquished their moral responsiblity and obligations to the Philippines. Guess who where the capable leaders we had then? Japanese collaborators! Why because the true nationalists, were dead. and of course with this, they signed treaties that means the Philippines could not sue Japan for damages like Jewish people can sue German and swiss companies because for just being Jews.
it is really not our fault!
we have to open our eyes and manifest our destiny! we have to remember nations that wronged us, in our faces and in our backs!
re: pinoys being succesfull elsewhere, because we are naturally hardworking and diplomatic. this is one of our traits that are being misread by other cultures, they see the diplomacy and easy going smile as weakness.
maybe one day, GOD the almighty will lift this burden upon us, and of course he shows his love, by not sparing us the whip!:)
June 29th, 2007, 12:45 PM
In my opinion, our country's main fault is our CULTURE! We are too forgiving for people who do us wrong, we easily get swayed by sweet talking pretenders who rob us of everything. What we need now is a "CULTURAL CHANGE", let us maintain our good traits but discard the values that we have that is actually preventing us from playing hardball against "tarantado's".
Philippines' concept of "democracy" is just too broad! Add the hundreds of lawyers we have no wonder there is always chaos!

siguro sa mentality na 'hindi hinuli si juan, kaya magkurakot na rin akong pedro' pero sana kung simulan natin sa bawat sarili na gawin natin ang tama, eventually dadami rin ang gumagawa ng tama. huwag matakot i-try na pahintuin ang mga anomalyang nakikita. may mga dayaan man, huwag nating i-accept na 'talagang ganyan lang yan'.
