ANOTHER DECEIVING SWS SURVEY!
The Social Weather Stations (SWS) claims that its latest survey revealed that the country’s poverty rate dropped at the end of 2011.
Really, now. Says who? Specifics please, NOT JUST NUMBERS, YOUR NUMBERS!
Even the Pnoy Administration and business leaders can’t deny that the economy slowed down, some even put it at STAGNANT, in 2011.
Pnoy recently claimed that two million jobs have already been generated under his government. But not even one beneficiary was named, not even one of the companies which took those purported two million new employees was identified, not even one kind of work was specified.
Prices of electricity, fuel, food and basic commodities remain SKY-HIGH! Electricity and fuel costs occasionally go down by a few centavos but the reduction is not even half of the accumulated increase producers had imposed prior to it.
Neither has there been any substantial raise in wages to cope with increases in the prices of our daily basic needs.
Look around you, guys, and judge for yourselves if squatters or informal settlers have decreased in numbers. Go over the newspapers or browse in the Internet, or ask your friends, if there has been any voluntary departure from informal settlers’ neighborhoods due to a better life.
Not because of demolition or forced relocation.
The SWS story in the Philippine Star said the drop in the poverty rate was nationwide.
But the SWS DID NOT CITE any reason for the supposed decline.
There was NO BASIS either, or PROOF. Not a single, specific place was cited where poverty supposedly dropped. Not even one person who had supposedly gotten off the poverty line was named.
And again, there were only 1,200 respondents for the supposed reality in the lives of us 94 MILLION Filipinos.
This is another bullshit survey. The latest dirty trick to FOOL OR BRAINWASH us into believing that the Pnoy Administration is doing well in fighting poverty.
Judge for yourselves, people.

THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH RECEIVING DISCOUNTS!

Mga BOBO talaga. Globally, bumagsak yung market ng real estate kaya nakuha nila ng mura.
Sa Amerika nga, bungalow 700 square meters with 2 cars kasama mga gamit, binebenta na lang ng $120,000 dahil bagsak ang real state globally that time.

Napakahirap na paniwalaan ninuman na magbibigay ang isang bahay-kalakalan ng 10 miyong diskwento. Tell it to the marines.

Funny. Just because he is the Chief Justice, he gets big discounts? Baka libre pa yan?
Discount across the board or discount lang based sa gov't position? Ethics!
Precisely my friend, and surely the reason why the CJ bought the property was because of the big discount being offered. Who would not have bought it if it’s being sold at a bargain price? The fact is they are putting malice in a purely above-board business transaction. The seller was offering to sell and the buyer was willing to buy at a mutually agreed price. What is wrong with that? Did the CJ coerce or threaten the seller to sell at a price as low as that? As the seller explained, the unit was raw with some structural defects and (the transaction was) at a time when the real estate market was at its lowest globally.

Megaworld vs Cobarde is a decision penned by
wherein he nullified a judgment by compromise wherein Megaworld is supposed to pay P25 million. Is this related to the discount given to Corona ? Corona
There certainly is a wrong about receiving a P10-million discount for the purchase of a condominium unit at the Bellagio which might/will be having a pending litigation in the High Court. 30
