A few weeks or months ago, President Aquino boasted that corruption is dead or something to that effect.
But in an international conference organized by the University of the Philippines-National College of Public Administration and Governance (UP-NCPAG), Pnoy ADMITTED that corrupt officials remain.
ANO BA TALAGA?
When Pnoy claimed that corruption was dead, there was no acknowledgement of support from the public sector for the purported achievement.
Now, he’s asking the public to help in eradicating corruption.
Pnoy boasted that supposed reforms of his government have resulted in the improvement of the country’s standing in Transparency International’s Corruption index from 134th in 2010 to 129th last YEAR.
Point No. 1 - The first half of 2010 was still covered by the administration of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. It would be nothing less than ARROGANCE for him to claim full credit for that improvement.
Point No. 2 – The only example he cited as a reform was the reduction in red tape in government offices. No details on what offices or how was the reduction achieved.
Most of all, Pnoy DID NOT MENTION any move he’s doing, or has done against multi-billion acts which wouldn’t have been carried out without the cooperation of corrupt officials.
Like the still UNSOLVED DISAPPEARANCE of 2,000 containers of various goods from the Bureau of Customs, and the TOTALLY UNTOUCHABLE JUETENG.
Pnoy said the problem of poverty must still be solved.
But he did not cite even one specific program or project being undertaken by his administration which has created jobs or livelihood opportunities for the poor.
What he enumerated instead was the supposed increase in the number of families enrolled in the government’s conditional cash transfer (CCT) program or covered by PhilHealth.
Huwag nating kalimutan, mga kababayan, ang CCT ay HINDI TRABAHO kundi abuloy o dagdag panggastos lamang sa mga mahihirap na pamilya. Gayundin ang PhilHealth, dagdag pambayad lamang sa gastusin sa pagkakasakit ng isang miyembro at hindi hanapbuhay.
MAGPAPAPOGI na rin lang si Pnoy, WALA PANG LAMAN AT SENSELESS pa ang sinabi.
From our friends:
WE NOW HAVE 3-M CHILD LABORERS, GUYS!

This would be more due to socio-economic instability. Now, education has been extended. The whole family has to work to make ends meet.. Abnoy, WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO THE PHIIPPINES?

Reprehensible and contemptible.

This is not even in his radar. After CJ Corona's impeachment, I don't know what Noynoy's doing to keep himself busy. Forget about what he plans to do to actually serve the Filipino people (is it even in his to-do list). What he's busy with is for his SONA to have some semblance of content. So, he went to the US , and to Europe ; and shock all of us by lending a ridiculous amount of money to the IMF. It's like paying his way into an upscale social club. This is where he's put his sights on. Shrug off this China conflict - it irritates him no end so no one could blame him for any bratty statements he makes about it. And who cares about losing the China market? If the banana exporters cannot sell their products there, why can't they just shut up and look for a new market - in one click, okay? And, excuse me! What increasing crime rate? Lose firearms - We simply live now in the wild, wild west. So now, why should we even bother him with child laborers?
And how many fall by the wayside to become drug addicts and gangsters? With K-12 implemented in this haphazard way...the number will go up.
Don't worry, it is going to get worse.

It’s just like saying it’s progressing.

The Philippines should be grateful to God Almighty that we have an abundance of young people. While Japan and Europe are foreseeing problems in the future due to their decreasing population who won't be able to handle the responsibilities of their next generation, we in the Philippines will have enough labor force to take care of our country's responsibilities in the next seven generations. Those who are worried of the increase in population should focus on the problem not in numbers ... but sharing of our wealth which is under the control of just one percent while the 99 percent are forced to survive on their own, the reason why many seek their fortunes elsewhere other than their beloved country. This is a continuing problem not being addressed by the present leadership ... there is no economic roadmap to increase growth and employment. Until now, everything is based on the yellow media and false surveys!

Child labor is a problem even before. We also want that President Aquino focus his attention on this.
