    Mariano

    I don’t belong to the poor families, SM salesladies or work as maid abroad. When I’m in pinas, I never speak english to SM salesladies, I’m not that snooty.In fact just this Christmas time, I gave tinned corned beef, hotdog, cheese, bread, powdered milk, coffee, etc to about 25 poor families to give them a little happiness. It’s my way of saying thank you to our Lord for the graces and blessings I receive from Him.

    If you don’t consider yourself a Filipino, and here you are in the Philippines – your country host providing your needs, human and natural resources – personally attacking the government, the Philippine Media, insulting and denigrating the look (personal appearance) of the Filipinos, the poorness of the people and thrashing the culture right and left, I would say you are an undesirable alien, a very ungrateful alien. If you have a mission of effecting changes to the minds of the Filipinos, you could do so in a positive way- more constructive way.Your rubbing some of us the wrong way, as such, your mission to effect changes would be fruitless. Be diplomatic and polite. Move on to whatever life has dealt with you – bitterly or sweetly. You are the achitect of your life, therefore, the solid foundation largely depends on you. Before changing the minds of the Filipinos in pinas, change your frame of mind first, your outlook to something positive to make people more responsive to you.

      Good point there letlet about Mariano, though somehow, I could sense a soft spot in him.

      Your deeds of sharing your blessings is commendable…for sure you’ll be blessed more.

      Saludo ako sa iyo!!!

      Letlet @ 84

      People like TMDG/FBRY a.k.a. MRP will never change (according to Javert). Both are certified Filipino haters and carry prominent names well known for amassing unexplained wealth in the Philippines. By the way, TMDG is presently in the USA and is under electronic detention like her mother, courtesy of the Filipino and US authorities. His partner FBGY lives with him. In 2006 FBGY, a phenomenal blogger wrote why, what and how he hated Filipinos so much. He said he lived in their modest house in Muntinlupa before by force instead of choice. Both are smart. But Johnny Lin, Victin Luz and the CPMers are smarter.

      I AM A DESIRABLE ALIEN. Girls love me becuase of my money and my looks. And I speak very goot englischtzes that I do not flaunt at Starbucks. Let us just say I am a ILLIGTIMATE FILIPINO.

      An ELLGETIMATE FILIPINOS is a Filipino born to un-weeded parents because my parents were poor. I was borned in the manger. Therefore, no birth ceritificate for authentication. I cannot be baptized because the church asked for birth certificate. I do not exist in NCSO becuse I cannot present birth ceritificate nor baptismal certificate. THEREFORE, I am A ….. rum roll …. plez ….. trumpet in the backstand ….. SILENCE …. whisper …. I AM AN ILLIGITIMATE FILIPINO.

      I was smuggled to the U.S. by an American Pilot. I pledged alligiance to Amrican Flag. Never ever applied for dual citizenship to the Philippines.

      I BECAME RICH. FAMOUS. WEALTHY. SPEAK GOOT ENGLISCHTZES. DO NOT EAT ADOBO. YOUNG AND GORGEOUS. Now, Filipinos claim me as a Filipino when I AM A PROUD AMERICAN just like Jessica SAnchez a PROUD LATINA.

      Me? UNDESIRABLE ALIEN ? No !!!! YOU ARE MISTAKEN ALONG WITH my greatest fan and follower @Rene-Ipil.

      FILIPINOS ARE UNDESERIABLE FILIPINOS. They they throw trash wherever they can. They pee wherever they can. Lookit the traffic in Metro Manila. The traffic is the reflection of FILIPNO ATTITUDE AND CHARACTER. Lookit the services Philippine Government promotes child neglect leaving them in the streets of Tondo naked and hungry and no tin-roof over their head.

      FILIPINOS ARE ALSO NATIONAL SECURITY RISKS ON TOP OF BEING UNDESIRABLE. They tsismis a lot. They backstop. They squabble on very little things. Then they go to church and pray for forgiveness.

    Why don’t Filipinos accept their skin color (but also many other peoples)?
    Why is form always more important than content (and thus we hate Mariano)?
    Why are so many Catholics only behaving as Catholics, but believing in many more ghosts and rituals than the ones listed in the bible (except for the Golden Calf)?
    Why do all Filipinos dream from a job abroad?
    Why policemen take confiscated dangerous fireworks home?
    Why is one caste so rude to another (lower) caste?
    Why is it that the sing “park facing the wall” seems to be an invitation to do the opposite in the Philippines and not for the same Filipino abroad?

    This is what Mariano is struggling with. They are all relevant questions, worthy to think about and debate. They give answers to the core of one’s values. Understanding who one really is can be uncomfortable and avoiding them by shooting the messenger doesn’t show courage.

      Alan says:

      (1) Why do certain commenters speak in sweeping generalities (“all Filipinos” — really?) , as if their parochial views are universal verities?
      (2) Why do these limited commenters act as if the problems besetting this country are peculiar to this country alone and not faced by, say, the rest of the world?
      (3) Why do these tiresome commenters act as if the things they say are precious, previously unheard of and therefore worth paying attention to?
      (4) Why do these tedious commenters fail to consider that they aren’t the only ones chosen by the Universe to see the problems of the Philippines?
      (5) Why do these wearisome commenters not realize that in the sanctimonious, shallow and cliched manner they speak they themselves encapsulate the very same negative qualities they profess to see in every Filipino?
      This is what I’m struggling with. And now let us sit back and wait for the inevitable story of the Filipino crabs

            Joe America says:

            I just did a blog on Filipino culture. To avoid the charge of “biased” or “unfair generalizations” or even “racist”, I went to quoting Professor Felipe De Leon, former head of Humanities at UP. All of his statements were generalities. But they are founded on years of study and thinking and debate. He uses the generalities (incisive synthesis in my eyes) to generate action steps to develop more strenth in Philippine economic productivity.

            This notion that generalities are bad is a generality. I think too many facts, aligned as lies, are bad. Keen synthesis is the way we move forward.

            • Alan says:

              Do these synthesized generalities include
              (1) “Why don’t Filipinos accept their skin color?” ?
              (2) “Why do all Filipinos dream from a job abroad”?
              Because these generalities don’t speak for me, and I rather fancy that I am a Filipino.

              One academician does not a synthesis make. Have you read Mercado’s books on Filipino psychology? Anthropology and history books? Etc?

              • Joe America says:

                He addresses those issues, yes, but not in those exact terms. His main point is that years of colonialization has led to a willingness to accept instructions and a shortfall in energies devoted to innovation. He touches on the OFW situation and insecurities that drive some acts.

                I agree that academicians can be as wrong as the next guy. I have not read Mercado. Here’s the De Leon article I quoted.

                But I think you have to be careful in denying the usefulness of generalizations. You seem to be saying that following facts in a reactive way is better than generalizing and guessing and risk-taking to arrive at new ways of doing things.

                This is really very critical because it is at the edge of the cultural difference between western and Filipino cultures, one generalizes and takes risks, and the other does not. One innovates, the other does not. (That is a generalization with lots of exceptions, you possibly being among them.)

              • Alan says:

                I’m not taking exception to generalities in principle, I’m taking exception to the generalities in the original post. There is a world of difference between a generality based on study and one based on prejudice. I have quite a few things to say about my country — and political culture and history in particular, because these are the things I’ve been writing on and interviewing / researching about for decades, and I certainly agree with you about the “years of colonization” (and the accompanying denigration coming from colonial masters) — though I’d go back farther than that to the pre-Hispanic datu leadership/patronage system.

              • Alan says:

                almost forgot, for truly cutting generalities that have stood the test of time, there are Rizal’s novels. The characters and practices he describes there still exist

              • Joe America says:

                Okay, good, we are aligned then.

                Generalities based on prejudice can indeed be unfair and punitive. I’m always fascinated with how other people come to their beliefs when those beliefs seem so unconventional or dysfunctional to us. Yet rational to the person holding them. My parents were racist for the better part of their lives, as were (are?) many Americans. Yet I know for a fact that my parents were among the most honorable of people. I think that somehow we have to reconcile acts with the whole of the character to explain the dysfunctional part, and the only way to do that is with a measure of understanding and even respect.

    Johnny @ 70.1 and Victin @ 67

    Johnny got the profile of Mariano accurately. Mariano is a product of a conjugal corruption in the Philippine government and extended to USA by his high profile father in conspiracy with the wife and all their children. In fact, the whole family is in trouble, a huge problem about property and liberty. His father lost his high and juicy position in the government as well as his liberty. The others are on temporary liberty in the USA. He hated Rappler so much because it exposed a scheme in 2011 that would have terminated their agony and torment, which started in 2005, both in the Philippines and USA. Of course Rappler is published by a distinguished and multi-awarded U.P. alumna, and many prominent journalists are U.P. alumni. In addition, a known lawyer from the U.P. Law Center has been the nemesis of Mariano’s father.

    Victin confirmed Johnny’s findings. In fact, it was Victin’s take that sealed Mariano’s coffin. Victin rightly analyzed that Mariano’s idol is Binay. Indeed, Binay surreptitiously knocked at heaven’s door to help Mariano’s father. Rappler and the U.P. “mafia” exposed that Binay (mis)adventure to the public. And the rest is history.

    Let’s add Johnny’s and Victin’s take and we get the whole picture. BTW in 2010 Mariano worked for an openly gay fashion designer in New York. In one of his pictures, I saw him wearing an ankle bracelet used for monitoring his whereabouts.

Chicago Tribune never have had U.P. journalists. But they do have American-born high-school drop=-out journalists.

      If U.P. journalists cannot make it to metro dailys in America I just wonder what Rene-Ipil is harking about ?

      Hey, yo, Rene-Ipil, there are thousands and hundreds of thousands graduate from U.P. Ateneo and la Salle THE IVY-SCHOOL OF THE PHILIPPINS. Now lookit where the Philippines is right now compared to Vietnam and Burma and Laos ? Never mind South Korea and Japan and Taiwan and China and Indonesia because hang-gang kuming-king lang ang Philippines.

      hey, yo, Rene-Ipil, give it up man. To make it easy for you, Just look at the Philippines catsup industry ….. compared to Thailand …..

      Filipino grocery stores in America stock-up coco juice maide in Thailand. NOthing from the Philippines. 80% of their products are made in South Korea and Thailand and Vietnamese. Where is your great Philippines ?

      c’mon, man, get real…. openyour eyes ….. go shop at SM …. see where their products are maide …… SO YOU’LLKNOW THAT I AM RIGHT DESPITE OF MY WRONG ENGLSICHTZES.

      Lookit POEA statistics where they are sending these Filipnos the cause of brain-drain …. Stop tulog-in-pansitan .

    Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

    @letlet I truly understand your concern. But I take issue of your impression that I “trample the dignity and the humanness of the poor people, who are so downtrodden and very unfortunate economically and educationally”. I am pro-poor. Less fortunate Filipinos struggle with spoken and written English. They are awed by fortunate Filipinos that can write and speak English well, therefore, educated, therefore, what they write must be correct. I have seen snotty English-snobs speak English to SM salesgirls when these supposedly “educated” Filipinos know very well that they do not have facility for English language.

    I am pro-poor. Poor Filipinos are brown and dark brown because of selling peanuts by the sidewalk whereas the can-afford wanted to be more white slathering their skin with industrial-strength Eskinol Skin Whitening Lotion with Papaya extract popping Glutathione to no end. They line up before Vicky Belo so they cannot look like the traditional Filipino looks: punk’d flat squat flared nose crawling on brown faces.

    I blame these on Philippine Media’s promotion of non-Filipino looking beauty contestants. These Philippine Media are teeming graduates from Ateneo, la Salle and U.P. They say they are for the poor but actually they are promoting the second classness of REAL FILIPINOS by covering head over heels non-Filipino looking beauty contestants. These so called Elite school graduates also promoted Manny Pacquiao as their hero and poor kariton educator got ignored in passing. These Philippine Media promotes mediocrity. They are against your skin color. They are against the looks of your face because it is subpar to what they consider as beauty. They are against you because of your atrocious spoken English.

    In the Philippines English is measure of intelligence. But they are only goot in English. I’m showing to poor Filipinos that despite my wrong syntax and spelling I still have the courage to bring out my opinion. Regardless they attack my syntaxes I still plod along ignoring those ridiculing my English. I wanted them to join the discourse regardless of their limitation. Remember those gaggle of Jewish scientist that created nuclear bomb do not speak English very well to this day. Well, they speak math, the language of science.

    I take that when I say FILIPINO, you understood it as POOR. That is sad. Whom I am attacking are those self-righteous FILIPINOS who thought they can post in impeccable English therefore they are right.

    I ridicule the powers if I have something. I do not have something because I do not read politics. To me, politics is pure tsismis and suggestive innuendoes no basis in fact. If there is “basis in facts” it is based on WITNESS ACCOUNTS and purported CREDENTIALS. That is why I keep away from it. Politics is like horoscopes it speaks in general terms until the day is over and read back your daily horoscope again you realize that what was predicted never happened. All of these politicians are goot until they sit in their jobs became monsters.

    These politicians were elected because of what was spewed in the Philippine Media. Who they elect is what they read from Philippine Media. Therefore, the government is Philippine Media. Since we have never progressed until now, therefore, Philippine Media was always wrong and were the tool of corruption.

    Benign0 Aquino is a fluke. Benign0 Aquino was an unknown until his Mommy Cory died. Then the Philippine Media started selling him with the help of my darling, Kris Aquino. Filipinos just fell for it. By a stroke of luck he turned out to be straight as an arrow. Filipinos wanted an example of his political capital. He vigorously run after Ate Glo & Co. and by association, Corona, because he is the stumbling block of TRO. By a stroke of luck those 188 rubber-stamp congressmen tried to endear themselves (kiss ass) to Benign0 without reading the impeachment articles. By another stroke of luck impeachment was a political process where “due process” can or cannot be applied so the rats came out. Mr. Anonymous and Little Lady in Red Riding hood waving surreptiously acquired private bank records and the rest is history THAT CAN BE REPEATED AGAIN because precedence has already happened.

    LONG LIVE FILIPINOS !!!!!!!

    My advocacies: Respect the non-englsichtzes talking. Love Filipino traditional looks. Religion is part and parcel of colonialism. And please, Filipinos, STOP TRASHING KOREANS, CHINESE, INDIANS and others of their atrocious englischtzes. STOP ENGLISCHTZES-SNOBBERY. These snobbery is colonial mentality.

      Well, thank you Mariano for confirming what I’ve always suspected of the real person behind the handle; that therein dwells an intelligent, sensible man with an important message. I know this now, not because you finally write in perfect english. But because there is an authenticity to this particular commentary. More from the core, so to speak. Though the message itself is consistent with what I’ve already picked up from the previous englischtzes versions.

      Maybe some people may now be asking, why then didn’t you just say so! in this more direct way, in the first place? But that’s really like asking why Shakespeare wrote in verse, why people write poetry, even why Les Miserables Is a musical. As far as I’m concerned, you can keep writing in englistch for as long as you want.

      Now, about the adobo. That I don’t get. How can you not like adobo anymore? Maybe because you haven’t tasted mine. Ahaha!

        Quoting shakespeare, Don quiojote, Michaevilli, 2Pac and Dr Dre to name the popular most quoted dead literarist DOESN’T MAKE ME RIGHT.

    I can’t stand it whenever Mariano, whose moral barometer is highly questionable without doubt, tramples the dignity and the humanness of the poor people, who are so downtrodden and very unfortunate economically and educationally .If his purpose in being a satirist is to effect changes by ridiculing the poor people, then he has lost his touch with the reality. A satirist can, and should ridicule the powers that be, as such, the poor people aren’t the powers that be. As a whole, I would say Mariano is a very nasty peice of work with a hundredfold attitude problem. He is a thousandfold HYPOCRITE by saying UP graduates are snooty, yet, his snootiness towards the poor people is showcasing the kind of person he is: hypocrite, arrogant, and absolutely ingrata on the human and natural resources he is now procuring in pinas. He who does not know the words compassion and mercy should not be a reciprocal of these virtues. Dear CPMERS, keep your distance away from him. He is not worthy in any measure.

    WHY IS IT THAT I READ MORE ABOUT AL JAZEERA THAN PHILIPPINE MEDIA ? So are the very very very FEW INTELLECTUAL FILIPNOS IN AMERICA ? WHY ?

    Here is the answer: Because there is something wrong with Philippine Media.

    OF COURSE, I HATE MARIANO FOR POSTING AND COMMENTING LIES 50% OF THE TIME. But priests do a MRP take. The church pass off allegory and made-up stories as truth WITHOUT DISCLAIMER. And poor pathetic 65-IQ point Filipnos ABSOLUTELY BELIEVE and retell the stories to me. I just totally puke. Even Philippine journalists retell the stories as if it is true.

    Here is what is weird about Filipino commentators that should be analyz by Philippine Journalists from Ateneo and la Salle:

    1. compelling argument is bading, bakla, bayot, gay
    2. compelling argument drags your lolos, lolas to the scene just like the senate foreign-educated ivy-school graduate elected senator investigators
    3. when you say you are goot at math, they ask for explanation of theory of relativity e=mcsquared
    4. compelling argument attrackts a gaggle of english-protectorates needling on grammar and spelling and punctuation

    In an earlier post, I made a list of pernicious Filipino habits (PFHs) that have been at work in the majority of us and in past Philippine presidents since Emilio Aguinaldo’s (President of the 1st Philippine Republic) time.

    It looks like these PFHs are deeply rooted in the Filipino psych that’s why we have a nation where most of its leaders are depraved into thinking that they are entitled in interpreting their own “rule of law.”

    I’ll add two more to that list: “debt of gratitude” (DG), or “utang na loob”, and “guarding – stealing” (GS), or “bantay-salakay.”

    An incidence of DG was when Cory Aquino was asked (I hate to say “dictated upon”) by the church to drop POPCOM (Population Commission) program initiated by Marcos. Having owed the church protection when her regime was bombarded by seven coup d’etats, she had no choice.

    A video aired on TFC Channel yesterday showed the working of GS among PNP officers who are considered to be law enforces; they appropriated to themselves confiscated firecrackers and they did it with great relish!

    If the present trend of things is an indication, then TND (‘tuwid na daan”) is a steep uphill road!

      CORRECTION: “psyche” instead of “psych”; ADDITION AFTER …”interpreting their own “rule of law.”…(remember CJ Corona impeachment trial and VP Binay’s (during Pres. GMA’S term) and Gov. Garcia’s refusal to follow orders to step down?)

      leona says:

      @fed_up…’xxx own rule of law” or ORL is in sync to GS ‘guarding ^ stealing,” DG ‘debt of gratitude,” and you’re right it is the PFHs ‘pernicious Filipino habits.”

      Maybe, just maybe, we got this out of being 300 years ‘slaves’ by the Spaniards here! Our forefathers and before them, handed this pHs down to generations that no matter what we learn in school, this keeps popping out in our traits as HABITS.

      Suggested solution: Orientation : 1.) what is RULE OF LAW really about. 2.) JUSTICE. 3.) Leadership. 4) Love of Country. 5.) Welfare of the People. 6.) Corruption, why it ruins the country and people. 7.) Why is Bribery bad. 8.) Rotten Pakikisama is bad. 9Public Office is a Public Trust. and 10.) Where My Loyalty to My Country Begins My Loyalty to My Party Ends.

      Orientation seminar for all government officials, elected and appointed, and down to the lowest public officials and employees in the government, Tanods of Barangays. A reminder of what is at hand and what will happen in the future.

      Like ‘re-studying’ by all government officials of themselves to remove such PFHs the pernicious Filipino habits. And thanks for this too!

      If one knows, no one should be FED UP. The theory este
      METAPHOR goes like this. It is CONTAMINATION, then INFECTION
      and finally complete BREAKDOWN of the moral IMMUNE SYSTEM
      of the Elite and the masses. Inevitably as in a culture of impunity,
      It BECOMES GENETIC, it runs in the blood and became pathologic
      stem cells. This is the Darwinian origin of corruption that thrive best
      in a polluted culture. This theory este METAPHOR can be put
      Into a spin of many books, with children of political dynasties as Harvard
      successful business case studies. A Doctor in the Barrio like a Juan Flavier left
      medicine, went into lawmaking, got contaminated, then probably
      infected, got out on time, had been able to avoid complete breakdown of his
      immune system but the corruption vaccine organisms will always be with him.
      Corruption is like a chemotherapy drug, it kills the antibodies until
      the moral resistance is completely taken over by extravagance and luxury.

    Would you want to experience how corruption can ruin a person’s life and spirit because of corruption? Here’s one, a man detained in Bolivia for 350+ days because of it. . .

    “It’s been 580 days.

    Jacob Ostreicher, an American small businessman, a father of five and grandfather of 11, was arrested in Bolivia and detained for 580 days in Santa Cruz’s Palmasola Prision, one of the toughest and strangest prisons in the world.

    Bolivian authorities accused him of being a money launderer involved in Bolivia’s vast drug business. “Nightline” first met Ostreicher in prison last May. He has maintained his innocence since his arrest in June 2011. ”

          Joe America says:

          leona, I respectfully disagree,

          First of all, I agree that the volume of Mariano’s comments are overmuch in this thread, but I’ve thought that of others in different threads, too. I’ve even thought it of myself when I get worked up and start to dominate conversation. You are among the most avid commenters here, and add a lot to the discussion.

          Mariano also offers a lot, at least for me, and the dialogue between him and Johnny is classic, two super intelligent, creative, irreverent people working to one-up one another. The subject matter is of no interest to you and others, the solution is simple. Don’t read. Don’t comment, because comment stokes the fire.

          If it is an issue, the editor should respectfully ask Mariano (and maybe Johnny) not to dominate threads to the exclusion of other commenters. Then, if they don’t follow that counsel, and the editor feels it is detrimental to the tenor and health of the site, zap ‘em.

          I think the blog gains by welcoming all kinds of perspectives, not just those that are agreeable, as long as others are not turned off. This is one thread. It’s too soon to pull the “ban” gun out.

          Plus, I’d lose a lot of laughing time . . .

            Joe

            I engaged Mariano to dissect, reveal his identity, profile him in short. I tried baiting him in your blog but he did.

            Sorry to disappoint him. He is prolific in expressing his views satitically but he is not intelligent. His postings in yours and here were contradictory in details but consistent in subject matter meaning his fabrications had similar motives but he has poor memory thus he could not sustain his facade.

            Psych profile is deceiver and pretender going back to his parents motivating his vindictiveness. He generalizes, nothing specific except on his limited experience especially In a supermarket and some dining experience in so so restaurants.

            True wealthy well travelled person would be mentioning more specific detailed exotic places to foster more enviness on the Filipinos he was addressing. Dearth of such was revealing. I entrapped him with Amanpulo in Palawan, thereby exposing his Faux pas.

            Read his comments in your blogs for the past two months since I posted in yours and compare them here, baically the same, nothing unique on experience as a rich or intelligent man. Dull, boring in the end are his tirades.

            His motive was to avenge his family problem which I posted @Rene but awaiting moderation.

            Insulting being compared to his intellect, he is at most a dreamer, all talk, no juice

                Rene-Ipil, we each walk our own styles, and Mariano is intelligent, just not obedient to the rules we impose on ourselves. Johnny is uniquely intelligent, I agree. Mariano’s, for me, is more a stylistic form. A verbal Dali perhaps. Ugly to you, amusing to me. In the end, it matters little, we learn, or don’t, or laugh, or don’t, or get frustrated, or don’t. Your view is conventional, and is why Mariano is banned at so many blog sites. Mine is unconventional, which is why he is welcomed at my blog site, and I have fewer readers than here. I’m just expressing a personal view that I would be remiss to keep buried in my brain.

                This isn”t a competition, I think. I don’t know why it is necessary to pick winners or losers, versus appreciating what each individual brings.

                Joe, I respectfully disagree.

                I think it is unfair to put Mariano in the same league of Johnny Lin insofar as intelligence and knowledge is concerned. While I learned something important from Johnny, all I get from Mariano are “buladas” and “kahambugan”. Nothing substantial. I only engaged him because I could not stomach anybody bad mouthing my country and kababayans. Most of what he was saying were generally known to all educated Filipinos. Mariano was only rubbing salt to a gaping wound. Adding insult to injury without any discernible helpful suggestions. If Mariano were only spewing facts and opinions in a positive note, though how unpalatable they may be, I will appreciate it. But Mariano was spitting venoms on us Filipinos. So, how could I accommodate him? No way.

                Your suggested solution is to refrain from reading his posts. How could I do it when every time I read this blog, I would momentarily pass by his comments and it would be enough for me to have an idea of his ranting against us, Filipinos? I am sure that many CPMers would always get a glimpse at least of Mariano’s
                post. Besides, some worthy CPMers like you, Johnny, Victin, Leona and others make comments on Mariano’s posts, and I could not help but to smell Mariano’s “bovine ordure”. It really stinks.

                I am actually trying to do what you advised Leona. Just ignore Mariano. But I am willing to make exceptions when extremely necessary. We, Filipinos, have a saying that “kapag pumatol ka sa sira ulo ay mas lalo kang sira”. But in a situation where a fool tries to harm or kill me or someone dear to me, then I have to maim or even kill him myself.

              To understand my posts it takes a minimum of 65 IQ points. It may be failing to American standards but to Filipinos 65 IQ points is high enough to be understood with IQ points below than that.

I traveled and lived all over the world because of my husband’s job but i can not compare my life here in the Philippines to any of those other countries, i am very happy here, i love the filipino way, happy no matter what? I can have everything but i choose to be here in my own very poor crook country. In the UK they know if you are a Filipino because you are a happy person. I agree with Johnny Lin, when he first brought his kids to the Philippines he has showed them the bad and good side of the Philippines, of which i did the same with my husband, I also showed him how to plant virginia tobacco and rice. Mariano you are hypocrite, wake up and grow up. Life is too short… enjoy life ok. Cheers!

              Rene-Ipil, yes, I understand, for sure. Free expression does not mean anything is allowed, especially running through the theater slashing with knives. When someone’s expression starts to discouragepeople from commenting rather than encourage comment, it is not good for the blog. So that is the editor’s job to handle, and I totally understand why Mariano gets blocked at a lot of web sites. Still . . . still . . . there is an artistry with Mariano that is unique, double meanings and word play and unconventional looks at conventional acts. Maybe as Johnny says, it is anger being exercised for some kind of vengeance. But, then, we all pack our own bags.

              You don’t get Mariano’s “artistry” as I don’t get Filipino fascination with teledramas, or cock fights, or whitening creams. So as a blog editor, I might have different standards than a Filipino blog editor, or I might be willing to accept the risk that my audience will be small and quirky because I’m not after popularity. In the end, it is no big deal here, other than for Raissa, who must maintain the quality of her site and make editorial judgments.

              Thanks for taking the time to explain your view to me, the outsider. I appreciate the cross-cultural interpretation.

            I see what you mean. I also read Mariano in your blog, and he can be very ‘un-distractive’ and when he wants to be — and i’ve read some of his posts in your site. So I try to read Mariano’s posts here, but usually I get distracted by the “artistry.” As you mentioned in your blog, he has a different way of making a point — amusing to some, irritating to most. People are not used to that — it’s hard to get used to it.

            He makes it a point to be arrogant and tries to get everyone’s goat, and he succeeds every time. People respond to his posts and, more often than not, the page turns sour. That is, I suppose, one of the ‘charms’ of Mariano.

            • Joe America says:

              Right, exactly. It’s why I said in my blog that he is really a test of US as readers, not of him. Only I would say that when he dominates a blog, as he did this one, it is not exactly charming. He is indeed a challenge for blog editors.

              • Johnny Lin says:

                Joe
                If Mariano and I dominated this blog for a while it was a direct response on my part on his incoherent superiority ranting but I discoursed with him on 3 points, he might not have noticed or yourself didn’t. I met him head to head with his supposed personal superiority, second on contents I argued in principles and opinions, third, I baited opening avenues I was certain he would respond to showcase his experience and knowledge.
                he was predictable in his response.

                This is not the first I have engaged trolls or otherwise. The last one was that “Josephf” an American from Nevada. After I exposed where he lived and his habits, he suddenly stopped. Raissa is used to us engaging others as long as it is reasonable, matured, non threatening discussion.
                We did it many times during impeachment. we always moved on to the topic of the new blog as always.

                At least in this blog we have learned to accommodate each other. I only participate in this blog, before with Newsbreak then Rappler. Your blog was the last one I joined but for some reason suddenly my postings would not go thru which also happened to me with Rappler. Not that I was banned but probably more device related because I use only wifi iPhone/iPad, no computers.

                Anyway, it was not my intention to bore readers like you. As you said all one has got to do is ignore the post though I believe it was amusing and pleasurable trouncing the ego of “Goot”. not only to me but to Rene, Pinay710, victin, Leona, and others. he will eventually stop on his own when everyone ignores him permanently maybe except you and ….

              Filipinos are easy to teach but do not know what to do what they have learned. Take for example Philippine Journalists. They speak and write goot englischtzes but cannot know that their article lacks intelligence.

              Let us take for example the ZTE experience. Philippine Media parrots illogical dogma that there was money exchanged at Wack-Wack because a Chinese golfer gave an envelope to another Filipino. wOw!!!! Nakakakatawa !!!! So an envelope presupposed money inside.

              Now here another ZTE experience. Remember the article that some WITNESSES have an account against Ate Glo that there was hush-hush money exchanged because they saw these Chinese and ZTE personnel went into a room. And they scream MONEY EXCHANGED ?

              Here is another one @tristanism, Nicole. They outed rape victim Nicole affidavit, pictures, addresses and all. NOT ONE PHILIPPINE MEDIA CRITICIZED THEIR ACTION !!!! Wow!

    Everytime I pay utilities, I have to excuse from my class just to pay utilities. JESUS MARY QUE BARBARIDAD !!! They do not accept by mail. No on-line payments. Only stand-in line at SM or Ayala. Jeeeez.

    This I admit, the women salesgirl at Ayala and SM are more prettier than those working at Makati. I WONDER WHY ? These salesgirl are helpful, dotting and very polite. The salesmen, too !!!!!! But in high-class establishment like PAL, they think they are sombody. But when I started speaking my native tongue, ENGLISH, I made them look like fools with their baluktot englishctzes. I told them, to make it easy for us let us speak Tangalog. But my Tangalog is baluktot, too. So we were just laughing. Then we exchanged cell numbers.

    And all is well that ends well.

    Why I retired in the Philippines?

    The first time I brought my children in the Philippines, I brought them to Smoky mountain in Tondo, Divisoria, Central market, Squatters in Tatalon QC and Trinoma area. Also to the clean subdivisions in Makati and QC. Wanted them to see with their own eyes the difference both in social status and daily living of Filipinos,

    When we arrived back to the state, my daughter quipped one dinnertime:
    “Why is Manila so dirty, WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?, I wanted to go back to help because I cannot change my race, I am a Filipino. I have to start somewhere!”

    Next thing I knew she was participating in Spring cleanup of another neighborhood. She joined Students Habitat in her school. . When she returned to the Philippines, around our areas she started to pick up trash and one time she saw a dirty child carried by a beggar, she asked the mom that she would like to bathe the child and fed them. Small simple things.

    She discussed with young relatives to spread the values of cleanliness that picking up trash promotes good health around the neighborhoods and self esteem of people; also bought trash cans to place in front of some houses. Now people throw into the cans their litters.

    My children come back to the Philippines now every year to visit us. They embraced the culture instead of despising and try to make a difference as Filipinos,they also speak Tagalog fluently.

    “Doing something instead of plain trash talking”

      Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

      I have not retired, yet. I still have to graduate but what is holding me back is the Rizal Course which I keep failing and repeating. Imagine those 1800 century Filipinos reading the El Feli and Noli Mi without the benefit of a Doctorate of History professor graduate from U.P. and, yet, understanding and digesting what they were reading compared to todays pinoys. I’d say, the 1800 century Pinoys are more intelligent than the current breed.

      My parents brought me to the U.S. when I was in high school I got involved with the Black Eyed Peas kind of people and Manny Pacquiao kind. So, my parents exiled me to the Philippines. Here I am trying to make Filipinos lakad na matuwid.

      But Filipinos are very difficult species to teach. IT IS EASIER TO TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS THE FILIPINO OLD TRICKS !!!! That is why when they say Philippines is going to the dog, I am happy because DOGS ARE EASY TO TEACH.

      When I was in the U.S. BEING A FILIPINO IS AN UNFORTUNATE EMBARASSING CIRCUMSTANCE. I thought I was not white enough and tisoy enough to fit in the SoHo crowd in New York until I am here in the Philippines.

      Girls look at me. They said I am drop-dead gorgeous with perfect country-club English. No snootiness. Absent of snobbery. Big deal to them. So, I started to learn the tangalog language. It’s kind of difficult until someone introduced me to Visayan. Visayan is more easy to learn because 80% of their words are corruptly conjugated Spanish word which Jessica Sanchez and I have in common.

      Eventually I have to give up Visayan because in Manila if you do not speak Tangalog you are PROMDI !!! What is PROMDI ? It is a fusion of two words FROM DAPROVINCE.

      Wonderful thing about being BORNED IN THE USA is that even benign0 Aquino’s PMAyer cannot touch me. I flash my U.S. Passport and they kneel before me. Yes, Virginia, Born-in-the-USA do not carry citizenship cards. WE ONLY CARRY PASSPORt. AMERICAN.

      Every other day I report to US Embassy to tell them I am still alive. If I missed a day, Americans will send in their F-16 to track me down. TO HELL WITH PHILIPPINE SOVEREIGNTY !!! TO HELL WITH PHILIPPINE AIR SPACE. I am not going back to the U.S. in cheap coco-lumber coffin.

      But when Filipinos base jump from high0-rise condo in Hong-Kong wingless, the Philippine government cannot even do anything. Many Filipinos came back here headless. Some of them have to be pieced together like a jigsaw puzzle.

      Despite of it all. I love the Philippines. Just never mind the Filipinos. THEY HAVE GOD THAT WILL TAKE CARE OF THEM. Whereas, I have the United States of America to take care of me.

                @Rene
                I engaged Marianito to entrap him thru his verbal diarrhea revealing simpleton dreamer character with a family past. He refers every now and then to his parents how he came tobe indicating he was doing this ranting for his family. He pretends to be superior indicative that their family was once in a lofty ground but crushed by media.

                Notable is hatred to Philippine media, journalists and UP graduates. He refused to discuss specific politicians, corruption in particular though knowingly paricipating in a political blog.

                His profile suggests that his family members or himself were involved in Philippine government whether in business or positions but their illicit accumulation of wealth was exposed by media/ reporter and lost the position, election or business destroyed.

                Indignation is directed specifically to Rappler probably for being banished by Rappler in their blogs or the reporter exposing their family corruption is with Rappler now.

                Of course, he would deny this or he will invent another palusot.

                At JoeAm blog, I already noted his pattern, baited him to discourse but did not bite. Mariano was able to fool some unfortunately for him he came to smart CPMEers.

                Trying to sell snake medicine to snakemen was his greatest blunder

                @Rene
                Mariano is a simpleton dreamer trying to sell snake medicine to snake men. He was successful to those unsuspecting bloggers but came to the wrong site. His disdain of Rappler is due to banishment of him by Eappler in their blogs or the reporter who exposed corruption of his family is with Rappler now. Who is Up journalist at Rappler now?

                His motive is vengeance for his family to Philippine media, journalists, UP students and church leaders who probably connived and exposed the downfall of their family business from illegal means.

                Once their family was looked upon in society suddenly crashed down to earth indicating his propensity to being superior to Filipinos. Their wealth came from government indicated by his disdain to apparent good governance but refused to speak specifically of corruption and politicians in particular since he knowingly participated in a political forum. he might reveal himself unconsciously with his ranting upon touching names of politicians.

                He is engaging bloggers with reverse psychology by inciting anger, fury or irritation to readers thru trash talking of Filipino culture. he was talking about cultural change because change was the downfall of their family corruption.

                Mariano’s family members are nothing but thieves that is why he is pretending that they have good jobs in CA although in JoeAm blog, he said his mom was in NY. it’s all facade against a backdrop of illicit wealth crushed by media and Catholics.

                This is his family profile, the only way he could prove in denying is reveal himself publicly. his only recourse is PALUSOT

          JosephIvo says:

          Leona, language is a wonderful instrument, one can use it in so many ways. Adjusting to the Philippine style is not easy for me. When I started teaching here and I showed a slide with the text “you can steal these ideas shamelessly” the class froze, no reaction at all; later I changed it in “you can copy these ideas shamelessly” and this time it created positive response. Stealing is a sin, copying not and people listen to the literal meaning. Here you cannot say “it costs 1 million (approximately is understood)” because that’s lying, you have to say “it costs one million, 24 thousand nine hundred ninety nine peso and forty eight centavos.”

          In many part of the world you say the opposite if you want to make a point without willing to look too serious. Here, if by accident I use my native satirical style I lose my audience straight away, I have to apologize and try to explain it again in a positive way.

          Of what I read, I think that Mariano loves Rizal but not the people giving twisted explanations he does not accept, people taking away the fun of reading and wondering. (The free mason Rizal despised the church so very explicitly! With only 10% of his anti-catholic coments, writers in the Catholic countries of Europe would have been imprisoned and excommunicated by the church. Just as Zola, Hugo, Marx and many others he had to have his novels printed in liberal Belgium.)

    80 Boracay resorts face demolition

    Tourism Secretary Jimenez warned the establishments to follow strict rules on easment in the beach areas by March.

    This is POLITICAL WILL. We need more of this not only in all tourist spts but also in MetroManila. Clear the sidewalks of illegal peedlers all over tourist spots.

    Next should be policing taxis, jeepneys and buses includingreduction of their numbers in tourists spots including airports.

    Media should publish the names of politicians and police protecting violators.
    Supreme court should restrict TRO issuance regarding zoning violation and punish the judges issuing such.

          Start it when riding in our fabled jeepneys, you will know right there inside something is wrong.

        Boracay 20 years back is not the Boracay of today. Before, cottages all just like that… real cottages with nipa/bamboo materials. you have to hunt for ice cubes. you use kerosene lamps. you can walk for a good 30 minutes between “stations” with very few establishments in between. yes, walk…. no motorized transportation allowed other than the “interior” roads. bikes are ok somehow. and it was CLEAN, UNSPOILED.

        But now…. it’s a different story. A relative who works for the DENR have to do their water sampling far from the beach just to be able to get a “passing mark” on coliform levels, lol.

        So i am not really sure which “boracay” you are referring to 20 years back?

        • 66.1.3.1
          Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

          As what you have described Boracay was like that 20 years ago except for the water testing. Bungalows sat very close to each other, just like today. It was crowded 20 years ago, it is more crowded today, I can only surmise, because going to Boracay is cheap compared 20 years ago.

            You are full of it MRP. I was there in Apr1993. It was not crowded at all. My friends and I stayed in a hut. Natulog sa papag at naka kulambo. Paid P400.00/night. what Praetorius is stating above is true. I am from Aklan and I know the the “Legaspis”, the “Tapuzes” and the “Tirols” who owns huge properties there. These folks are from Makato, Aklan.

              My crowd is not your crowd. Maybe I am so used to bungalows that when my girlfriends scream and groan and moan she cannot be heard from the next bungalow. Well, don’t worry, My girl Friend and I moved to Boracay Resort but still it is crowded for my taste. Chill !

              this Mariano is delusional, lol. I can still remember way back if you want to buy the “boracay” t-shirt, you have to point to a printed design on paper (sort of like catalog) and WAIT (or come back for it) to be printed using silkscreen by a long-haired hippie type guy.

        Take for instance the slogan of speaker Belmonte when he was still the Q.C. mayor; “maliit na basura ilagay sa sa bulsa” just try to be observant while walking on street people just drop candy wrappers and other plastic as the walk.

        SHAME ON US FILIPINOS we trashed our very own Luneta park on christmas eve in the full view of foreigners who we’re trying to wow and visit us.

        Try to visit Luneta park at 6:00AM its teeming with transients and vagrants who made the park as their home and trashes strewn all over the place right in the full view of the Dept of Tourism secretary’s office.

        Anti-Littering Law: 10 Things You Should Know
        1. What is the Anti-Littering Law?

        The Anti-Littering Law is MMDA Regulation No. 96-009entitled, “PROHIBITING LITTERING/DUMPING/THROWING OF GARBAGE, RUBBISH OR ANY KIND OF WASTE IN OPEN OR PUBLIC PLACES, AND REQUIRING ALL OWNER’S, LESSEES, OCCUPANTS OF RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL ESTABLISHMENTS, WHETHER PRIVATE OR PUBLIC TO CLEAN AND MAINTAIN THE CLEANLINESS OF THEIR FRONTAGE AND IMMEDIATE SURROUNDINGS AND PROVIDING PENALTIES FOR VIOLATION THEREOF”, which was enacted into law by the Metro Manila Council on the 22nd Day of August, 1996. The regulation was amended on May 6, 1999 by MMDA Regulation No. 99-006.

        2. When did the Anti-Littering Law take effect?

        The law originally took effect on September 15, 1996. The implementation of the law was suspended last August 2002. The law will again be implemented in Metro Manila starting September 16, 2010.

        3. What acts are prohibited by the Anti-Littering Law?

        The Anti-Littering Law prohibits the following acts:
        o Littering, Illegal dumping, Illegal disposal of garbage;
        o Urinating, defecating, spitting in a public place;
        o Dirty frontage and immediate surroundings for establishment owners;
        o Improper and untimely stacking of garbage outside residence or establishment;
        o Obstruction (any dilapidated appliance, vehicle, and etc., display of merchandise, illegal structure along sidewalk);
        o Dirty public utility vehicles, or no trash can or receptacle;
        o Spilling, scattering, littering of wastes by public utility vehicles; and
        o Illegal posting or installed signage, billboards, posters, streamers and movie ads., etc.

        4. Who has authority to apprehend violators of this law?

        The MMDA will have deputized Environmental Enforcers monitoring the major thoroughfares of Metro Manila. These Environmental Enforcers (EE) will initially be in their mint green polo-shirt uniform (with MMDA logo), with identification cards (both employee ID and Deputation ID) clearly visible and displayed. They will be in charge of issuing Environmental Violation Receipts (EVR) to persons caught violating the Anti-Littering Law. The EE’s ID shall contain a written Deputation Order, stating the name and deputation number of the EE, his authority to issue EVRs, and until when the order is effective.

        5. How much is the fine if you violate this law?

        The penalties for violating the provisions of the Anti-Littering law, according to the nature of offenses, are as follows:
        Code Nature of Offense Option 1 (Payment of Fines) Option 2 (Render
        Community Service)

        01 Littering, Illegal dumping, Illegal disposal of garbage P500.00 8 hours (1 day)
        02 Urinating, defecating, spitting in a public place P500.00 8 hours (1 day)

        08 Illegal posting or installed signage, billboards, posters, streamers and movie ads., etc. P1000.00 16 hours (2 days)

        6. What is the MMDA’s protocol in deploying Environmental Enforcers?

        Environmental Enforcers will be deployed in teams. Each team will have a team leader and an assistant team leader, who will both have the exclusive authority to issue EVRs. These two will be assisted by one photographer and one recorder to document each apprehension made by their team leader or assistant team leader.
        A spotter shall be deployed by the MMDA for each team to monitor possible violators of the agency’s regulations. It is the spotter’s duty to bring the violator to the Environmental Enforcer for issuance of ticket. The Environmental Officer should tell the violator of the details of his/her violation, and the proper payment process.

        7. What are the procedures for payment of administrative fines?

        Upon apprehension, a violator will be given an option to either pay the fine, or to render community service. For payment of fines or rendering of Community Service, the following procedures should be observed:
        Option 1 (Payment)
        1. Report to MMDA HPSEPO for Order of Payment of the charged Administrative Fine according to the nature of offense committed.
        2. Go to the MMDA Treasury Operations Service for the payment of fine
        3. Submit the initial receipt to HPSEPO for clearance and documentation

        Option 2 (Community Service)
        4. Report to MMDA HPSEPO for proper orientation on the Environmental Regulations Schedule and Instruction
        5. Render Community Service
        6. Go to HPSEPO for clearance and issuance of Certificate of Compliance
        8. What if I don’t pay the fine nor render Community Service?

        If you do not show-up within 3-days after the receipt of the apprehension, you will be given the 1st summon which will only be valid for 15 days. If you still don’t settle your violation within 15 days, you will be given the 2nd summon which is also valid for 15 days. If you still don’t settle your violation after 15 days, the final summon, which is valid for 1 (one) month, will be given to you.
        If you still ignore the final summon, your case will be filed at the Metropolitan Trial Court of the city where you were apprehended. If you do not show up to the scheduled hearings, you will be given a Warrant of Arrest. In addition, your violation will be forwarded to the NBI.

        Failure to pay the administrative fine of P500 or render 8 hours Community Services shall be penalized, after conviction, by a fine of One Thousand Pesos (P1,000.00), or imprisonment of three (3) to seven (7) days, or both, at the discretion of the court.
        Failure to pay the administrative fine of P1,000 or render 16 hours of Community Service shall be penalized, after conviction, by a fine of Two Thousand Pesos (P2,000.00) or imprisonment of seven (7) days to one (1) month, or both, at the discretion of the court.

        9. If I have a pending violation of the Anti-littering law, will it be possible for me to obtain an NBI clearance? If not, what is the procedure for getting myself cleared from the violation?

        No, you will not be able to get an NBI clearance. To clear your record, you need to go to the MMDA and pay your fine. After paying, go to the HPSEPO and get your “Motion to Withdraw Information” certificate signed by the Senior Prosecutor of the DOJ. After this, bring the “Motion to Withdraw Information” certificate to the concerned Metropolitan Trial Court (MTC). After submitting, the MTC will give you the “Certificate of No Case.” Finally, bring your “Certificate of No Case” so that you’ll be allowed to obtain an NBI Clearance.

        10. What do I do if I want to protest my EVR or file a complaint against an Environmental Enforcer?

        If you feel your EVR was issued without any legal basis or in violation of the protocol, you may contest by going to the MMDA-HPSEPO Adjudication Office (7th floor MMDA Main Bldg. EDSA cor. Orense St. Guadalupe Nuevo, Makati City) to fill-up the protest form indicating all relevant details regarding your complaint, within 1 week (7 days) after the receipt of the apprehension.

Its enforcement operations are carried out strictly within the limits provided for by law.

        The City’s demolition activities are aimed at clearing streets and sidewalks of all obstructions and illegal structures, so as to ensure the safe and unimpeded traffic of pedestrians and vehicles.

        The City’s anti-squatting activities are in compliance with Republic Act No. 7279, also known as the Urban Development and Housing Act, or UDHA.

    WILL BINAY SABOTAGE THE RH LAW?

    I am just being pro-active here. The RH law has been passed, but its implementation can be made difficult or ineffective if the next batch of leaders intend to disrupt it.

    The UNA party has the most number of anti-RH legislators: JV Ejercito, Mitos Magsaysay, JPE, Jinggoy Estrada.

    Who is the presidential candidate that has been identified in media as anti-RH? Is Binay a closet anti-RH?

      fed_up says:

      @andrew lim. You have caused me concern. There’s a big risk the RH Law might follow the fate of POPCOM (POPulation COMmission) Program initiated by Pres. Marcos. When Cory Aquino became President, she was asked “or dictated upon?”) by the church to scrap it. In compliance with the Filipino habit of “utang na loob” (debt of gratitude”), she was only too willing to return a favor, because the church has played a role in shielding her from the seven military coup-d’etats that plagued her regime. Just like the POPCOM Program, the RH Law may, in the words of one CPMer, go into the “kangkongan” again.

    Life is good, sabroso drinking hot chocolate while breathing clean fresh sea breeze in South China sea.

    Those Filipino nurses in Central valley! How about those teachers in Texas. Cant blame them,
    America is land of opportunity. They exercised their rights, besides Americans invented personal injury and labor discrimination laws, that is why there are ambulance chasers with law degree(PHL has askals with pedigrees).

    These nurses and teachers, if they squablle, at least they are dividing what they sowed. Compared another Filipino nurse in New York. Inherited large sum after sowing good deeds. divvying being contested by long lost relatives of deceased who never washed the butt of the rich departed Huguette Clark. So you do not have to go to the library and find out who is this departed recluse. She was the great grandaughter of the founder of Las Vegas, the reason Vegas is in Clark county. This woman also bequeathed large sum to a recluse nephew who did not cash a large cashier check dated 2003 and recently found dead in the West coast as an homeless man dying from hypothermia. Life is a bitch sometimes, for lawyers were looking for him to hand his million dollar inheritance.

    I thought you are a just another Johnny Linsanity fan, now you are stalking me wanting to get married.

      Tagalog originated from Indonesia ? I wikied it. It seems, it appears tangalog is influenced by Indonesianese. So, if ever I am declared persona-non-grata by Philippine Government for speaking the truth, I can go to Kura Kura resort in Karimunjawa snorting coke and puffing aged weeds.

      Well, in Los Angeles Unified School District (the largest unified school in America) Filipinos sued a finance director for calling them “S****t**d and names … OF COURSE, FILIPINOS SUED !!!!

      Again, they hired WHITE AMERICAN LAWYER like Manny Pacquiao HIRED WHITE AMERICAN LAWYER AGAINST MAYWETHER. (Ba’t ang galing sa mga Pinoy pero if push come to shove THEY HIRE WHITE AMERICAN LAWYERS This is what Rappler can never tell you people)

      Well, to make short story long, Filipinos won !!! NOT BECAUSE Filipinos were able to prove they are not S****d and D****mb but because the use of words in America is banned. SO WHITE AMERICANS NOW LEARNED A LESSON. Never call Filipnos names. It is dangerous to their wealth.
      —————
      Itong mga Pinoy matigas ang ulo. My wealthy parents have poor Filipino neighbors (they are nurses which my parents consider poor). They have dogs. Thier dogs have authority problems and disobedient. They keep on barking. These Filipino nurses just let the dog barks.

      So my parents called 911 to report disturbance of the peace.

      911: 911 what is your emergency
      Parent: Dog bark. Always no stop. Owner not stop bark. Send police to stop bark
      911: Do you know the neighbors name, sir?
      Parent: I do not know them. They are nurses. Filipino
      911: In that case, sir, we do not send in the police BUT ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICERS. Filipinos do not fall within the purview of Los Angeles Police Department but Animal Control officers. Will send them right now sir,
      Parent: Tank you. Tank you. Yes, they are animals. Including Dogs.
      911: Sir, IT IS EASIER TO TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS THAN FILIPINOS OLD TRICKS.
      Parent: True! True 1 True! Send them to obedience school. Thank you.

            Told you before, if you talk the talk, walk the walk.

            Wrong hotel name, wrong owner. Google it quick.

            Anyway, if you want to walk the walk read Mon Tulfo latest column in Inquirer about “How to be rich”. His book recommendation and his personal narration is worth for you since it is your dream.

            Although you have been dissing the Filipinos and say how you are different, it is now obvious and exposed, after trapping you, that you are a dreamer, trying to be different. In Philippine school school there is a local grade school animal fable about the one perched on top of a carabao saying it is taller than every animal on the road. Dont know if they taughted this in Ateneo grade school.

            Now you are a true Filipino., down to earth. You are despising the white clad slaves because you could not afford them. Tawag dun sour-grapes at hindi kinakain yun

          Tulfo did not write this directly but I will share to you

          When you are rich and wanted something, do not ask for the price and do not think it is wasteful.

          The first rule on riches is:

          if you want it, enjoy it, money is not a problem, could be earned again.
          If you pause and think about the cost, you are not sure you will be happy buying it. Afterwards, if it is not worth, dont buy the same kind again. Charge to experience.

          of course it is not good to buy what you can’t afford

        I got to know Kris Aquino through a series of e-mail messages dealing with one of my blogs. She is very straightforward and kind, charming even, and I think she is definitely of her brother’s moral compass, believing the Philippines is best served openly and honestly. But I think the Philippines is ready for a president with credentials BEYOND that Aquino “glow of goodness”. I think it is ready for a smart, capable “executive” who ALSO treads the honest path.

        A guy like Jun Abaya.

        Sometimes it is hard to see people who occupy smaller jobs as capable of sliding into the BIG job. But the office makes the man or woman. Giving a competent individual the opportunity to make the office.

            By this time most of those who support PNoys matuwid na daan already know whom they can trust to continue and probably improve on PNoy’s programs and accomplishments. I could see in the horizon Mar Roxas as the most qualified successor of PNoy. The promising “Abayas” could fit well after Mar Roxas. And I am sure there would be a number of them, i.e., jun abaya, Kim, Leila, Miro, jun Angara, Trillanes, Guingona, others, and maybe some of us here in the CPM. Please take note of my timeline of almost a decade. But unexpected turn of events could happen in 3 years and it is totally possible that one or two of the above names would find its way to the 2016 presidential elections.

            • Godofredo Damiani, aka GodDam says:

              Agree that Abaya and Guingona after 2016
              Agree on Roxas too.

              Binay saw the downfall of his ace in Cebu
              his decision to go there spoke of lack of judgment being VP accompanied by opportunists. Decision to oust Gwen was executive branch and he belongs to that office unlike Enrile.

              In retrospect, Aquino was right all along refusing to appoint Binay as DILG sec. he would have stacked the dept in his favor including the PNP commanders.

        yeheywater says:

        @Isellnuts
        Kris Aquino is about 42 years old now, but highly unlikely to get involved in politics in the very near future. She knew what her mother went through in those presidency years, and she is aware to the difficulties Noynoy is having right now. For sure, the President and his sisters will not encourage any of the sisters for any elective public office.

        At the moment, Mar Roxas is the logical choice, but I’ll go to whoever PNoy endorsed…in the knowledge that he will choose the best person in the the given time.

        I hope compulsory voting is introduced in the Philippines, like in Australia as one of the bloggers from that country mentioned before…not sure if it was Mel.

    [Ika-31 ng Disyembre 2012]

    Kaybilis po talaga ng panahon: Ito na po ang ikatlong bagong taon na ipagdiriwang ng sambayanan sa tuwid na daan. xxx”

    The country hopes so greatly for this. We have an election in the middle part of this YEAR. Will our voters still be TANGI? Blind, Deaf and Dumb? Let us see this YEAR!

    Will candidates still BUY VOTES? Rig the ballots? Steal the Ballot Boxes? Let us see.

        What is the simple do able solution to stop corruption? FLATTEN ‘em! SQUEEZE ‘em! A political will is needed from president, lawmakers, judges and prosecutors, law enforcers, atbpa. But now, it is not happening. VIPs who are under arrests are getting sick suddenly and stays inside high class hospitals than in jail cells..

        Our judges and prosecutors are softies! Some of these under arrests even have cell phones; eat food as brought to them by supporters, et.al. Why not order that they eat same food of ordinary temp jail birds? No cell phones, etc. too?

        But cannot be done, ’cause judges and prosecs are softies! No will at all. Even some senators prefers reconciliations immediately for VIPs jail birds! So, it is difficult to enforce equality of jail birds treatment. What happens is SELECTIVE ang justice system natin.

    There was lack of momentum and spirit in the act to recover. Under the “Revoluntionary Gov’t” for 8 or 10 months of Pres. Cory had, it had all the options. Yet, too excessive “rule of law” was instead applied in the difficult hunt and recovery. The chance was lost.

    Next time, stolen wealth of the people, under a Revoluntionary Gov’t, the rule of law on conclusive presumption should be reversed: All suspected plundered wealth are conclusively presumed stolen and is deemed owned by the State and the people. Period!

          Allow me to put the record straight. I am from California. I have travelled to Italy, France, Spain and Portugal. I’ve gone to Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Paraguay. In Asia I do not like India, Bangladesh and Thailand. I am looking forward to go to Nepal. I also have travelled to the Philippines. Philippines is a zoo 2nd only to India.

          So much to that …

          Americans seems to know how FILIPINOS LOOK LIKE. In DeVry University billboard they used a traditional brown-skin-punk’d nose Filipino as their “model”. Metropolitan Transit Authority-Los Angeles, Bank of America and that mall over WEst Covina used a FILIPINO LOOK ALIKE not some tisoys or tisays with American looks. NO! NO! NO!

          Filipinos in America and Filipinos all over the world should protest to these entities for denigrating the looks of the Filipino by making models out of tradiitional looking brown-skin-punk’d nose.

          I could have loved the Filipnos, BUT HOW COULD I LOVE THE FILIPINOS WHEN THEY HATE THEIR LOOKS ? How could I love Filipinos when they hate their language. They’d rather speakengese goot englischtzes.

          Chinese, Korean, Indian childen are bilenguals BUT FILIPINO CHILDREN ARE …. REFEAT … ARE ONELINGUALS, English. WHY ?

          People in Filipno blogosphere attack me for hating FILIPNOS? No! I love Filipnos. it is those who attack me hate Filipnos because they do not want to know who The Filipinos are. !!!!!

            Believe family member or himself was involved in politics, or government position/connection. Lost in election or involved in corruption or family business affected by exposure in Philippine media probably by a UP journalist, afterwards ridiculed by people they knew resulting to his general criticism or ridicule of Filipino culture.

            Like cooking adobo, we all cook Filipino way except he adds curry and say it is still adobo conforming to accepted international gustatory standard of spicy food. We may not agree to his taste but he is right it is still adobo.

            Subdued somewhat, less ranting, more conciliatory, he is asleep now but he will start posting again probably around 9-11 pm Philippine time before he goes to work.

What are the reactions if any of the 3 UNA Kings? I’m sorry, nawala ang sense of humor ko. I think most of you are paying too much attention only to Marciano Pacifico Falayfay whoever he is. Let’s ignore him for awhile. We know what kind most filipinos are made of. so, what he is saying isn’t really new. It’s time to discuss other issues . Thank you!

    In 1774 Lloyds of Londo was founded. Since then standard insurance policy wordings excludes “Acts-of-God”.

    TODAY, standard insurance policy wordings now says “Natural Calamities”. So, I went to Asian Institute of Insurance (aii) in Alabang. By the way, A-I-I IS an arm of Asian Institute of Management, they said VATICAN PROTESTED THE USE OF “ACTS-OF-GOD” CLAUSE because God is merciful not demagogue.

    So, there you are folks, “Natural Calamities” is not god made.

    So, I asked them further, if it is not God made, who made it?

    They said, it is man-made. Man dinigrated the environment.

    So, therefore, GOD IS PONTIUS PILATE THAT WASHED HIS HANDS ….

            Dear Godofredo “The God” Damiani,

            I DO NOT grocery shop at Filipino stores. Not because I am not patriotic or nationalistic it is because of lack of parking. If ever they have parking, it is narrow. Most of all Filipinos are bad drivers. They drive their cars like they push their cart in Filipino grocery stores. These Filipnos do not know their right of way. And they give me bad looks. NOt only that, they keep staring at me. I do not know why they stare at me maybe becuase I do not look like a Filipino. And I am handsome.

            This is how I came to question why GDP of the Philippines is shooting to the stars when I go shop at Seafood City, Pacific Seafood and other Filipino grocery stores from National City to SanFo to Vegas and Jacksonville Florida 80% of their products are not made by Filipinos. How dare they call themselves FILIPINO STORE. They are not Filipno store. They are Tha-i-Chi stores. Their coco milk from Thailand. Their noodles from China. Well, their tienderas are definitely Filipinos. Filipinos who are not courteus at all. They throw my change on the counter instead of handing it to me American style, look me in the eye and smile. How in the world Philippine GDP is rising when they cannot even manufacture noodles and catsup and canned coconut?

            I like Filipinos for one thing. When I am around them I feel superior. My englischtzes is flawless. My critical thingking is impecable. And I do not drive a Toyota or a Honda or a Lexus or a Mercedes these are generic luxury cars but a brand of choice by Filipinos.

            Filipinos success in America is a NURSE.

              I haven’t posted yet my American name, Brad although others call me GC.

              Honestly, i dont know how the inside of Seafood city looks like. One time I was in Vegas and wanted to eat lunch at a Filipino restaurant. I asked the chambermaid at Bellagio suite for direction and she answered me by saying “besides Seafood city”. That was the first time I heard the name.

              When I was training as an intelligent exchange student, overheard two foreign doctors saying, Filipinos are easy to please, just give them mercedes benz and rolex, they wont complain anymore. Never owned a rolex though I wore rolex in high school and college but bever bought one for myself except to give as gifts to my relatives. Patek and Cartier are more to my lifestyle simplicity. Never owned a mercedes, though i drive a porsche and bentley now. But that does not mean I do not love Filipinos.

              I love Filipino nurses, not only they are pretty, smart and financially secure now, for they made my life so easy while training as an intelligent exchange student. According to american employment statistics, nursing and other related healtcare careers are the top employment opportunities now and for the next two decades.

              You did not enlist in the US navy that is why you are not married to a Filipino nurse

                Filipino nurses are difficult to understand, Johnny. They practice english on their children causing their children never to learn their parents’ tribal dialects back in the Philippines. Yet, when they go to work they speak tangalog. When administrators of this Central Valley hospital in California told Filipinos not to speak tangalog but speak english only, THEY SUED !!!

                These US-Citizenship card-carrying fake-American Filipino nurses used everything in their arsenals against this hospital. FIRST, they used a WHITE AMERICAN LAWYER despite their telling me that Filipinos are intelligent bunch of english-snob people; SECONDLY, they coalesced despite the gossip, backstabbing, constant squabbling and comparing their Corollas against their Corollas.

                THE US-Citizenship card-carrying fake-American Filipinos won !!!! Now they fought among themselves again how they are going to divvy up their winnings. NEVER ENDING STORY.

                The US-Citizenship card-carrying fake-American Filipinos also told me that there are plenty of UCLA graduate Filipino lawyers … BUT WHEN THEY ARE AROUND TO PETITION THEIR SQUABBLING DEPENDENTS, they go to Garfunkel just to fill up petition papers !!!

            Filipinos use white lawyers because results are quick and easy. Life is cruel too. in America color still speaks silently. Take it or leave it. Complaining or preaching will not make a difference for Filipinos as long as they are minorities except probably ……. Never. Facts of life are uncontestable.

            This is a true story: I did not use a white lawyer but a rich Creole lawyer friend who was street smart. He did not do anything except to file papers with judges he was friendly with to extend my stay while gathering documents. I supplied all the information. Finally, I was being deported by regional court. We drove to DC, faced the final 3 immigration justices and personally explained my case with supporting documents. argued that I should not be deported for intelligence because I would be an asset rather than a burden to the country. There was a loophole in the immigration law we argued that should apply to me.

            Today, America is granting visas to intellectual foreigners who could contribute, calling them special visas.

    An ELLGETIMATE FILIPINOS is a Filipino born to un-weeded parents because my parents were poor. I was borned in the manger. Therefore, no birth ceritificate for authentication. I cannot be baptized because the church asked for birth certificate. I do not exist in NCSO becuse I cannot present birth ceritificate nor baptismal certificate. THEREFORE, I am A ….. rum roll …. plez ….. trumpet in the backstand ….. SILENCE …. whisper …. I AM AN ILLIGITIMATE FILIPINO.

    I BECAME RICH. FAMOUS. WEALTHY. SPEAK GOOT ENGLISCHTZES. DO NOT EAT ADOBO. YOUNG AND GORGEOUS. Now, Filipinos claim me as a Filipino when I AM A PROUD AMERICAN just like Jessica SAnchez a PROUD LATINA.

    FILIPINOS ARE UNDESERIABLE FILIPINOS. They they throw trash wherever they can. They pee wherever they can. Lookit the traffic in Metro Manila. The traffic is the reflection of FILIPNO ATTITUDE AND CHARACTER. Lookit the services Philippine Government promotes child neglect leaving them in the streets of Tondo naked and hungry and no tin-roof over their head.

    Why don’t Filipinos accept their skin color (but also many other peoples)?
    Why is form always more important than content (and thus we hate Mariano)?
    Why are so many Catholics only behaving as Catholics, but believing in many more ghosts and rituals than the ones listed in the bible (except for the Golden Calf)?
    Why do all Filipinos dream from a job abroad?
    Why policemen take confiscated dangerous fireworks home?
    Why is one caste so rude to another (lower) caste?
    Why is it that the sing “park facing the wall” seems to be an invitation to do the opposite in the Philippines and not for the same Filipino abroad?

    This is what Mariano is struggling with. They are all relevant questions, worthy to think about and debate. They give answers to the core of one’s values. Understanding who one really is can be uncomfortable and avoiding them by shooting the messenger doesn’t show courage.

      (1) Why do certain commenters speak in sweeping generalities (“all Filipinos” — really?) , as if their parochial views are universal verities?

      (3) Why do these tiresome commenters act as if the things they say are precious, previously unheard of and therefore worth paying attention to?
      (4) Why do these tedious commenters fail to consider that they aren’t the only ones chosen by the Universe to see the problems of the Philippines?
      (5) Why do these wearisome commenters not realize that in the sanctimonious, shallow and cliched manner they speak they themselves encapsulate the very same negative qualities they profess to see in every Filipino?

        A generality aligned with our thinking is “incisive synthesis”, a generality misaligned with our thinking is a stupid argument.

        • Alan says:

          a generality is a generality — something like “all Americans are rednecks”

          • Joe America says:

            That isn’t a generality, it is a lie.

          • Joe America says:

            I just did a blog on Filipino culture. To avoid the charge of “biased” or “unfair generalizations” or even “racist”, I went to quoting Professor Felipe De Leon, former head of Humanities at UP. All of his statements were generalities. But they are founded on years of study and thinking and debate. He uses the generalities (incisive synthesis in my eyes) to generate action steps to develop more strenth in Philippine economic productivity.

            This notion that generalities are bad is a generality. I think too many facts, aligned as lies, are bad. Keen synthesis is the way we move forward.

            • Alan says:

              Do these synthesized generalities include
              (1) “Why don’t Filipinos accept their skin color?” ?
              (2) “Why do all Filipinos dream from a job abroad”?
              Because these generalities don’t speak for me, and I rather fancy that I am a Filipino.

              One academician does not a synthesis make. Have you read Mercado’s books on Filipino psychology? Anthropology and history books? Etc?

              • Joe America says:

                He addresses those issues, yes, but not in those exact terms. His main point is that years of colonialization has led to a willingness to accept instructions and a shortfall in energies devoted to innovation. He touches on the OFW situation and insecurities that drive some acts.

                I agree that academicians can be as wrong as the next guy. I have not read Mercado. Here’s the De Leon article I quoted.

                But I think you have to be careful in denying the usefulness of generalizations. You seem to be saying that following facts in a reactive way is better than generalizing and guessing and risk-taking to arrive at new ways of doing things.

                This is really very critical because it is at the edge of the cultural difference between western and Filipino cultures, one generalizes and takes risks, and the other does not. One innovates, the other does not. (That is a generalization with lots of exceptions, you possibly being among them.)

                I’m not taking exception to generalities in principle, I’m taking exception to the generalities in the original post. There is a world of difference between a generality based on study and one based on prejudice. I have quite a few things to say about my country — and political culture and history in particular, because these are the things I’ve been writing on and interviewing / researching about for decades, and I certainly agree with you about the “years of colonization” (and the accompanying denigration coming from colonial masters) — though I’d go back farther than that to the pre-Hispanic datu leadership/patronage system.

              • Alan says:

                almost forgot, for truly cutting generalities that have stood the test of time, there are Rizal’s novels. The characters and practices he describes there still exist

              • Joe America says:

                Okay, good, we are aligned then.

                Generalities based on prejudice can indeed be unfair and punitive. I’m always fascinated with how other people come to their beliefs when those beliefs seem so unconventional or dysfunctional to us. Yet rational to the person holding them. My parents were racist for the better part of their lives, as were (are?) many Americans. Yet I know for a fact that my parents were among the most honorable of people. I think that somehow we have to reconcile acts with the whole of the character to explain the dysfunctional part, and the only way to do that is with a measure of understanding and even respect.

    Johnny @ 70.1 and Victin @ 67

    Johnny got the profile of Mariano accurately. Mariano is a product of a conjugal corruption in the Philippine government and extended to USA by his high profile father in conspiracy with the wife and all their children. In fact, the whole family is in trouble, a huge problem about property and liberty. His father lost his high and juicy position in the government as well as his liberty. The others are on temporary liberty in the USA. He hated Rappler so much because it exposed a scheme in 2011 that would have terminated their agony and torment, which started in 2005, both in the Philippines and USA. Of course Rappler is published by a distinguished and multi-awarded U.P. alumna, and many prominent journalists are U.P. alumni. In addition, a known lawyer from the U.P. Law Center has been the nemesis of Mariano’s father.

    Victin confirmed Johnny’s findings. In fact, it was Victin’s take that sealed Mariano’s coffin. Victin rightly analyzed that Mariano’s idol is Binay. Indeed, Binay surreptitiously knocked at heaven’s door to help Mariano’s father. Rappler and the U.P. “mafia” exposed that Binay (mis)adventure to the public. And the rest is history.

    Let’s add Johnny’s and Victin’s take and we get the whole picture. BTW in 2010 Mariano worked for an openly gay fashion designer in New York. In one of his pictures, I saw him wearing an ankle bracelet used for monitoring his whereabouts.

      I THINK, THEREFORE, I AM NOT FILIPINO.

  40. Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

    @letlet I truly understand your concern. But I take issue of your impression that I “trample the dignity and the humanness of the poor people, who are so downtrodden and very unfortunate economically and educationally”. I am pro-poor. Less fortunate Filipinos struggle with spoken and written English. They are awed by fortunate Filipinos that can write and speak English well, therefore, educated, therefore, what they write must be correct. I have seen snotty English-snobs speak English to SM salesgirls when these supposedly “educated” Filipinos know very well that they do not have facility for English language.

    I am pro-poor. Poor Filipinos are brown and dark brown because of selling peanuts by the sidewalk whereas the can-afford wanted to be more white slathering their skin with industrial-strength Eskinol Skin Whitening Lotion with Papaya extract popping Glutathione to no end. They line up before Vicky Belo so they cannot look like the traditional Filipino looks: punk’d flat squat flared nose crawling on brown faces.

    I blame these on Philippine Media’s promotion of non-Filipino looking beauty contestants. These Philippine Media are teeming graduates from Ateneo, la Salle and U.P. They say they are for the poor but actually they are promoting the second classness of REAL FILIPINOS by covering head over heels non-Filipino looking beauty contestants. These so called Elite school graduates also promoted Manny Pacquiao as their hero and poor kariton educator got ignored in passing. These Philippine Media promotes mediocrity. They are against your skin color. They are against the looks of your face because it is subpar to what they consider as beauty. They are against you because of your atrocious spoken English.

    In the Philippines English is measure of intelligence. But they are only goot in English. I’m showing to poor Filipinos that despite my wrong syntax and spelling I still have the courage to bring out my opinion. Regardless they attack my syntaxes I still plod along ignoring those ridiculing my English. I wanted them to join the discourse regardless of their limitation. Remember those gaggle of Jewish scientist that created nuclear bomb do not speak English very well to this day. Well, they speak math, the language of science.

    I take that when I say FILIPINO, you understood it as POOR. That is sad. Whom I am attacking are those self-righteous FILIPINOS who thought they can post in impeccable English therefore they are right.

    I ridicule the powers if I have something. I do not have something because I do not read politics. To me, politics is pure tsismis and suggestive innuendoes no basis in fact. If there is “basis in facts” it is based on WITNESS ACCOUNTS and purported CREDENTIALS. That is why I keep away from it. Politics is like horoscopes it speaks in general terms until the day is over and read back your daily horoscope again you realize that what was predicted never happened. All of these politicians are goot until they sit in their jobs became monsters.

    These politicians were elected because of what was spewed in the Philippine Media. Who they elect is what they read from Philippine Media. Therefore, the government is Philippine Media. Since we have never progressed until now, therefore, Philippine Media was always wrong and were the tool of corruption.

    Benign0 Aquino is a fluke. Benign0 Aquino was an unknown until his Mommy Cory died. Then the Philippine Media started selling him with the help of my darling, Kris Aquino. Filipinos just fell for it. By a stroke of luck he turned out to be straight as an arrow. Filipinos wanted an example of his political capital. He vigorously run after Ate Glo & Co. and by association, Corona, because he is the stumbling block of TRO. By a stroke of luck those 188 rubber-stamp congressmen tried to endear themselves (kiss ass) to Benign0 without reading the impeachment articles. By another stroke of luck impeachment was a political process where “due process” can or cannot be applied so the rats came out. Mr. Anonymous and Little Lady in Red Riding hood waving surreptiously acquired private bank records and the rest is history THAT CAN BE REPEATED AGAIN because precedence has already happened.

    LONG LIVE FILIPINOS !!!!!!!

    My advocacies: Respect the non-englsichtzes talking. Love Filipino traditional looks. Religion is part and parcel of colonialism. And please, Filipinos, STOP TRASHING KOREANS, CHINESE, INDIANS and others of their atrocious englischtzes. STOP ENGLISCHTZES-SNOBBERY. These snobbery is colonial mentality.

      Well, thank you Mariano for confirming what I’ve always suspected of the real person behind the handle; that therein dwells an intelligent, sensible man with an important message. I know this now, not because you finally write in perfect english. But because there is an authenticity to this particular commentary. More from the core, so to speak. Though the message itself is consistent with what I’ve already picked up from the previous englischtzes versions.

      Maybe some people may now be asking, why then didn’t you just say so! in this more direct way, in the first place? But that’s really like asking why Shakespeare wrote in verse, why people write poetry, even why Les Miserables Is a musical.

        And, Oh, @Letlet, I do not deal the erotic cybercrime laws because laws in the Philippines are applied sparingly not consistently. You can delve into its exoticity of Laws while I take care to change the Filiipno minds in my own little ways.

    I can’t stand it whenever Mariano, whose moral barometer is highly questionable without doubt, tramples the dignity and the humanness of the poor people, who are so downtrodden and very unfortunate economically and educationally .If his purpose in being a satirist is to effect changes by ridiculing the poor people, then he has lost his touch with the reality. A satirist can, and should ridicule the powers that be, as such, the poor people aren’t the powers that be. As a whole, I would say Mariano is a very nasty peice of work with a hundredfold attitude problem. He is a thousandfold HYPOCRITE by saying UP graduates are snooty, yet, his snootiness towards the poor people is showcasing the kind of person he is: hypocrite, arrogant, and absolutely ingrata on the human and natural resources he is now procuring in pinas. He who does not know the words compassion and mercy should not be a reciprocal of these virtues. Dear CPMERS, keep your distance away from him. He is not worthy in any measure.

    • Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

      I truly understand your concern. But I take issue of your impression that I “trample the dignity and the humanness of the poor people, who are so downtrodden and very unfortunate economically and educationally”. I am pro-poor. Less fortunate Filipinos struggle with spoken and written English. They are awed by fortunate Filipinos that can write and speak English well, therefore, educated, therefore, what they write must be correct. I have seen snotty English-snobs speak English to SM salesgirls when these supposedly “educated” Filipinos know very well that they do not have facility for English language.

      I am pro-poor. Poor Filipinos are brown and dark brown because of selling peanuts by the sidewalk whereas the can-afford wanted to be more white slathering their skin with industrial-strength Eskinol Skin Whitening Lotion with Papaya extract popping Glutathione to no end. They line up before Vicky Belo so they cannot look like the traditional Filipino looks: punk’d flat squat flared nose crawling on brown faces.

      I blame these on Philippine Media’s promotion of non-Filipino looking beauty contestants. These Philippine Media are teeming graduates from Ateneo, la Salle and U.P. They say they are for the poor but actually they are promoting the second classness of REAL FILIPINOS by covering head over heels non-Filipino looking beauty contestants. These so called Elite school graduates also promoted Manny Pacquiao as their hero and poor kariton educator got ignored in passing. These Philippine Media promotes mediocrity. They are against your skin color. They are against the looks of your face because it is subpar to what they consider as beauty. They are against you because of your atrocious spoken English.

      In the Philippines English is measure of intelligence. But they are only goot in English. I’m showing to poor Filipinos that despite my wrong syntax and spelling I still have the courage to bring out my opinion. Regardless they attack my syntaxes I still plod along ignoring those ridiculing my English. I wanted them to join the discourse regardless of their limitation. Remember those gaggle of Jewish scientist that created nuclear bomb do not speak English very well to this day. Well, they speak math, the language of science.

      I take that when I say FILIPINO, you understood it as POOR. That is sad. Whom I am attacking are those self-righteous FILIPINOS who thought they can post in impeccable English therefore they are right.

      I ridicule the powers if I have something. I do not have something because I do not read politics. To me, politics is pure tsismis and suggestive innuendoes no basis in fact. If there is “basis in facts” it is based on WITNESS ACCOUNTS and purported CREDENTIALS. That is why I keep away from it. Politics is like horoscopes it speaks in general terms until the day is over and read back your daily horoscope again you realize that what was predicted never happened. All of these politicians are goot until they sit in their jobs became monsters.

      These politicians were elected because of what was spewed in the Philippine Media. Who they elect is what they read from Philippine Media. Therefore, the government is Philippine Media. Since we have never progressed until now, therefore, Philippine Media was always wrong and were the tool of corruption.

      Benign0 Aquino is a fluke. Benign0 Aquino was an unknown until his Mommy Cory died. Then the Philippine Media started selling him with the help of my darling, Kris Aquino. Filipinos just fell for it. By a stroke of luck he turned out to be straight as an arrow. Filipinos wanted an example of his political capital. He vigorously run after Ate Glo & Co. and by association, Corona, because he is the stumbling block of TRO. By a stroke of luck those 188 rubber-stamp congressmen tried to endear themselves (kiss ass) to Benign0 without reading the impeachment articles. By another stroke of luck impeachment was a political process where “due process” can or cannot be applied so the rats came out. Mr. Anonymous and Little Lady in Red Riding hood waving surreptiously acquired private bank records and the rest is history THAT CAN BE REPEATED AGAIN because precedence has already happened.

      LONG LIVE FILIPINOS !!!!!!!

      My advocacies: Respect the non-englsichtzes talking. Love Filipino traditional looks. Religion is part and parcel of colonialism. And please, Filipinos, STOP TRASHING KOREANS, CHINESE, INDIANS and others of their atrocious englischtzes. STOP ENGLISCHTZES-SNOBBERY. These snobbery is colonial mentality.

      I already have decolonized myself. Rid myself of English and Religion and Adobo.

    If Philippine Journalists are not biased, objective, fair and goot in englischtzes why is it American Media carries more news from Al Jazeera than Philippine Media ?

    WHY IS IT THAT I READ MORE ABOUT AL JAZEERA THAN PHILIPPINE MEDIA ? So are the very very very FEW INTELLECTUAL FILIPNOS IN AMERICA ? WHY ?

    Here is the answer: Because there is something wrong with Philippine Media.

    Here is an advice: Do not rush the news to print. Vet and Vet and Verify and Verify to gain CREDIBILITY.

  43. Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

    1. Filipinos hate to be MAISAHAN
    2. Filipinos hate someone is speaking and writing english better than he/she does
    3. Filipinos hate when intelligent person comes along
    4. Filipinos hate when answers back right away and englsichtzes is perfeckt and grammar wrong
    5. Filipinos hate themselves why Mariano Renato Pacifico can answer back in longer tra-la-las in englsichtzes and IT TAKES THEM HOURS AND HOURS TO PERFECKT THEIR ENGLSICHTZES when they studied in ivy schools like Ateneo la Salle and UP whereas MRP still struggling at Aklan Elementary School in Ivory Coast

    OF COURSE, I HATE MARIANO FOR POSTING AND COMMENTING LIES 50% OF THE TIME. But priests do a MRP take. The church pass off allegory and made-up stories as truth WITHOUT DISCLAIMER. And poor pathetic 65-IQ point Filipnos ABSOLUTELY BELIEVE and retell the stories to me. I just totally puke. Even Philippine journalists retell the stories as if it is true.

    Here is what is weird about Filipino commentators that should be analyz by Philippine Journalists from Ateneo and la Salle:

    1. compelling argument is bading, bakla, bayot, gay
    2. compelling argument drags your lolos, lolas to the scene just like the senate foreign-educated ivy-school graduate elected senator investigators
    3. when you say you are goot at math, they ask for explanation of theory of relativity e=mcsquared
    4. compelling argument attrackts a gaggle of english-protectorates needling on grammar and spelling and punctuation
    5. WHY DO YOU THINK FILIPINOS ARE LIKE THAT ????????? IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH FILIPINOS ????????

    Does perfection of grammar and englsichtzes makes ARGUMENT RIGHT ?

  45. fed_up says:

    In an earlier post, I made a list of pernicious Filipino habits (PFHs) that have been at work in the majority of us and in past Philippine presidents since Emilio Aguinaldo’s (President of the 1st Philippine Republic) time.

    It looks like these PFHs are deeply rooted in the Filipino psych that’s why we have a nation where most of its leaders are depraved into thinking that they are entitled in interpreting their own “rule of law.”

    I’ll add two more to that list: “debt of gratitude” (DG), or “utang na loob”, and “guarding – stealing” (GS), or “bantay-salakay.”

    An incidence of DG was when Cory Aquino was asked (I hate to say “dictated upon”) by the church to drop POPCOM (Population Commission) program initiated by Marcos. Having owed the church protection when her regime was bombarded by seven coup d’etats, she had no choice.

    A video aired on TFC Channel yesterday showed the working of GS among PNP officers who are considered to be law enforces; they appropriated to themselves confiscated firecrackers and they did it with great relish!

    If the present trend of things is an indication, then TND (‘tuwid na daan”) is a steep uphill road!

    • fed_up says:

      CORRECTION: “psyche” instead of “psych”; ADDITION AFTER …”interpreting their own “rule of law.”…(remember CJ Corona impeachment trial and VP Binay’s (during Pres. GMA’S term) and Gov. Garcia’s refusal to follow orders to step down?)

    • leona says:

      @fed_up…’xxx own rule of law” or ORL is in sync to GS ‘guarding ^ stealing,” DG ‘debt of gratitude,” and you’re right it is the PFHs ‘pernicious Filipino habits.”

      Maybe, just maybe, we got this out of being 300 years ‘slaves’ by the Spaniards here! Our forefathers and before them, handed this pHs down to generations that no matter what we learn in school, this keeps popping out in our traits as HABITS.

      Suggested solution: Orientation : 1.) what is RULE OF LAW really about. 2.) JUSTICE. 3.) Leadership. 4) Love of Country. 5.) Welfare of the People. 6.) Corruption, why it ruins the country and people. 7.) Why is Bribery bad. 8.) Rotten Pakikisama is bad. 9Public Office is a Public Trust. and 10.) Where My Loyalty to My Country Begins My Loyalty to My Party Ends.

      Orientation seminar for all government officials, elected and appointed, and down to the lowest public officials and employees in the government, Tanods of Barangays. A reminder of what is at hand and what will happen in the future.

      Like ‘re-studying’ by all government officials of themselves to remove such PFHs the pernicious Filipino habits. And thanks for this too!

    • If one knows, no one should be FED UP. The theory este
      METAPHOR goes like this. It is CONTAMINATION, then INFECTION
      and finally complete BREAKDOWN of the moral IMMUNE SYSTEM
      of the Elite and the masses. Inevitably as in a culture of impunity,
      It BECOMES GENETIC, it runs in the blood and became pathologic
      stem cells. This is the Darwinian origin of corruption that thrive best
      in a polluted culture. This theory este METAPHOR can be put
      Into a spin of many books, with children of political dynasties as Harvard
      successful business case studies. A Doctor in the Barrio like a Juan Flavier left
      medicine, went into lawmaking, got contaminated, then probably
      infected, got out on time, had been able to avoid complete breakdown of his
      immune system but the corruption vaccine organisms will always be with him.
      Corruption is like a chemotherapy drug, it kills the antibodies until
      the moral resistance is completely taken over by extravagance and luxury.

    Would you want to experience how corruption can ruin a person’s life and spirit because of corruption? Here’s one, a man detained in Bolivia for 350+ days because of it. . .

    “It’s been 580 days.

    Jacob Ostreicher, an American small businessman, a father of five and grandfather of 11, was arrested in Bolivia and detained for 580 days in Santa Cruz’s Palmasola Prision, one of the toughest and strangest prisons in the world.

    Bolivian authorities accused him of being a money launderer involved in Bolivia’s vast drug business. “Nightline” first met Ostreicher in prison last May. He has maintained his innocence since his arrest in June 2011. ”

      Hello CPMers, happy new year to all. Medyo nawala ako, pero palagi pa ring nagbabasa ng inyong mga kuro-kuro. Medyo nawala lang ang intelligent discussion thread nyo, nang napasukan ang CPMers nitong si Mariano Pacifico. Sobra naman ang yabang nito. Wala ibinibida kundi yabang sa sarili. Sa palagay ko sinasadya nyang guluhin kayo, para maudlot ang mga balak na binubuo ng grupo for the coming election. Let’s move on! Pwede bang wag nang ipost ang mga sinasabi nitong si Pacifico. Sayang lang ang space ni Raissa.

          Btw, Mr. Ostreicher was released from jail and is under house arrest lately as reported. But his case will be on-going and not allowed to leave Bolivia yet. If he’s innocent, his lawyers will get a dismissal of the case I’m sure.

        • Joe America says:

          leona, I respectfully disagree,

          First of all, I agree that the volume of Mariano’s comments are overmuch in this thread, but I’ve thought that of others in different threads, too. I’ve even thought it of myself when I get worked up and start to dominate conversation. You are among the most avid commenters here, and add a lot to the discussion.

          Mariano also offers a lot, at least for me, and the dialogue between him and Johnny is classic, two super intelligent, creative, irreverent people working to one-up one another. The subject matter is of no interest to you and others, the solution is simple. Don’t read. Don’t comment, because comment stokes the fire.

          If it is an issue, the editor should respectfully ask Mariano (and maybe Johnny) not to dominate threads to the exclusion of other commenters. Then, if they don’t follow that counsel, and the editor feels it is detrimental to the tenor and health of the site, zap ‘em.

          I think the blog gains by welcoming all kinds of perspectives, not just those that are agreeable, as long as others are not turned off. This is one thread. It’s too soon to pull the “ban” gun out.

          Plus, I’d lose a lot of laughing time . . .

          • Johnny Lin says:

            Joe

            I engaged Mariano to dissect, reveal his identity, profile him in short. I tried baiting him in your blog but he did.

            Sorry to disappoint him. He is prolific in expressing his views satitically but he is not intelligent. His postings in yours and here were contradictory in details but consistent in subject matter meaning his fabrications had similar motives but he has poor memory thus he could not sustain his facade.

            Psych profile is deceiver and pretender going back to his parents motivating his vindictiveness. He generalizes, nothing specific except on his limited experience especially In a supermarket and some dining experience in so so restaurants.

            True wealthy well travelled person would be mentioning more specific detailed exotic places to foster more enviness on the Filipinos he was addressing. Dearth of such was revealing. I entrapped him with Amanpulo in Palawan, thereby exposing his Faux pas.

            Read his comments in your blogs for the past two months since I posted in yours and compare them here, baically the same, nothing unique on experience as a rich or intelligent man. Dull, boring in the end are his tirades.

            His motive was to avenge his family problem which I posted @Rene but awaiting moderation.

            Insulting being compared to his intellect, he is at most a dreamer, all talk, no juice

                Rene-Ipil, we each walk our own styles, and Mariano is intelligent, just not obedient to the rules we impose on ourselves. Johnny is uniquely intelligent, I agree. Mariano’s, for me, is more a stylistic form. A verbal Dali perhaps. Ugly to you, amusing to me. In the end, it matters little, we learn, or don’t, or laugh, or don’t, or get frustrated, or don’t. Your view is conventional, and is why Mariano is banned at so many blog sites. Mine is unconventional, which is why he is welcomed at my blog site, and I have fewer readers than here. I’m just expressing a personal view that I would be remiss to keep buried in my brain.

                This isn”t a competition, I think. I don’t know why it is necessary to pick winners or losers, versus appreciating what each individual brings.

                Joe, I respectfully disagree.

                I think it is unfair to put Mariano in the same league of Johnny Lin insofar as intelligence and knowledge is concerned. While I learned something important from Johnny, all I get from Mariano are “buladas” and “kahambugan”. Nothing substantial. I only engaged him because I could not stomach anybody bad mouthing my country and kababayans. Most of what he was saying were generally known to all educated Filipinos. Mariano was only rubbing salt to a gaping wound. Adding insult to injury without any discernible helpful suggestions. If Mariano were only spewing facts and opinions in a positive note, though how unpalatable they may be, I will appreciate it. But Mariano was spitting venoms on us Filipinos. So, how could I accommodate him? No way.

                Your suggested solution is to refrain from reading his posts. How could I do it when every time I read this blog, I would momentarily pass by his comments and it would be enough for me to have an idea of his ranting against us, Filipinos? I am sure that many CPMers would always get a glimpse at least of Mariano’s
                post. Besides, some worthy CPMers like you, Johnny, Victin, Leona and others make comments on Mariano’s posts, and I could not help but to smell Mariano’s “bovine ordure”. It really stinks.

                I am actually trying to do what you advised Leona. Just ignore Mariano. But I am willing to make exceptions when extremely necessary. We, Filipinos, have a saying that “kapag pumatol ka sa sira ulo ay mas lalo kang sira”. But in a situation where a fool tries to harm or kill me or someone dear to me, then I have to maim or even kill him myself.

              To understand my posts it takes a minimum of 65 IQ points. It may be failing to American standards but to Filipinos 65 IQ points is high enough to be understood with IQ points below than that.

              I agree with you leona, Mariano he is full of himself, he is constanly attacking the filipino people, no disrespect to you Mariano but it is true. I traveled and lived all over the world because of my husband’s job but i can not compare my life here in the Philippines to any of those other countries, i am very happy here, i love the filipino way, happy no matter what? I can have everything but i choose to be here in my own very poor crook country. In the UK they know if you are a Filipino because you are a happy person. I agree with Johnny Lin, when he first brought his kids to the Philippines he has showed them the bad and good side of the Philippines, of which i did the same with my husband, I also showed him how to plant virginia tobacco and rice. Mariano you are hypocrite, wake up and grow up. Life is too short… enjoy life ok. Cheers!

We, Filipinos, have a saying that “kapag pumatol ka sa sira ulo ay mas lalo kang sira”. But in a situation where a fool tries to harm or kill me or someone dear to me, then I have to maim or even kill him myself.

            • Joe America says:

              Rene-Ipil, yes, I understand, for sure. Free expression does not mean anything is allowed, especially running through the theater slashing with knives. When someone’s expression starts to discouragepeople from commenting rather than encourage comment, it is not good for the blog. So that is the editor’s job to handle, and I totally understand why Mariano gets blocked at a lot of web sites. Still . . . still . . . there is an artistry with Mariano that is unique, double meanings and word play and unconventional looks at conventional acts. Maybe as Johnny says, it is anger being exercised for some kind of vengeance. But, then, we all pack our own bags.

              You don’t get Mariano’s “artistry” as I don’t get Filipino fascination with teledramas, or cock fights, or whitening creams. So as a blog editor, I might have different standards than a Filipino blog editor, or I might be willing to accept the risk that my audience will be small and quirky because I’m not after popularity. In the end, it is no big deal here, other than for Raissa, who must maintain the quality of her site and make editorial judgments.

              Thanks for taking the time to explain your view to me, the outsider. I appreciate the cross-cultural interpretation.

          • tristanism says:

            I see what you mean. I also read Mariano in your blog, and he can be very ‘un-distractive’ and when he wants to be — and i’ve read some of his posts in your site. So I try to read Mariano’s posts here, but usually I get distracted by the “artistry.” As you mentioned in your blog, he has a different way of making a point — amusing to some, irritating to most. People are not used to that — it’s hard to get used to it.

            He makes it a point to be arrogant and tries to get everyone’s goat, and he succeeds every time. People respond to his posts and, more often than not, the page turns sour. That is, I suppose, one of the ‘charms’ of Mariano.

            • Joe America says:

              Right, exactly. It’s why I said in my blog that he is really a test of US as readers, not of him. Only I would say that when he dominates a blog, as he did this one, it is not exactly charming. He is indeed a challenge for blog editors.

              • Johnny Lin says:

                Joe
                If Mariano and I dominated this blog for a while it was a direct response on my part on his incoherent superiority ranting but I discoursed with him on 3 points, he might not have noticed or yourself didn’t. I met him head to head with his supposed personal superiority, second on contents I argued in principles and opinions, third, I baited opening avenues I was certain he would respond to showcase his experience and knowledge.
                he was predictable in his response.

                This is not the first I have engaged trolls or otherwise. The last one was that “Josephf” an American from Nevada. After I exposed where he lived and his habits, he suddenly stopped. Raissa is used to us engaging others as long as it is reasonable, matured, non threatening discussion.
                We did it many times during impeachment. we always moved on to the topic of the new blog as always.

                At least in this blog we have learned to accommodate each other. I only participate in this blog, before with Newsbreak then Rappler. Your blog was the last one I joined but for some reason suddenly my postings would not go thru which also happened to me with Rappler. Not that I was banned but probably more device related because I use only wifi iPhone/iPad, no computers.

                Anyway, it was not my intention to bore readers like you. As you said all one has got to do is ignore the post though I believe it was amusing and pleasurable trouncing the ego of “Goot”. not only to me but to Rene, Pinay710, victin, Leona, and others. he will eventually stop on his own when everyone ignores him permanently maybe except you and ….

              Redicule is my trade. I learned it from my professor in psychology with minor in Philippne psyche.

              Filipinos are easy to teach but do not know what to do what they have learned. Take for example Philippine Journalists. They speak and write goot englischtzes but cannot know that their article lacks intelligence.

              Let us take for example the ZTE experience. Philippine Media parrots illogical dogma that there was money exchanged at Wack-Wack because a Chinese golfer gave an envelope to another Filipino. wOw!!!! Nakakakatawa !!!! So an envelope presupposed money inside.

              Now here another ZTE experience. Remember the article that some WITNESSES have an account against Ate Glo that there was hush-hush money exchanged because they saw these Chinese and ZTE personnel went into a room. And they scream MONEY EXCHANGED ?

              Here is another one @tristanism, Nicole. They outed rape victim Nicole affidavit, pictures, addresses and all. NOT ONE PHILIPPINE MEDIA CRITICIZED THEIR ACTION !!!! Wow!

              What about the Ampatuan massacre where the investigators trampled the crime scene. They even use the same backhoe to pull out the Tamaraw !!! And the Philippine Media who are polite and courteous in their writings are clueless.

              Would you rather have polite and courteious news articles and blogs and comments in misinforming the people or WOULD YOU RATHER HAVE ME TO EDUCATE THE PEOPLE ala MERIAM DEFENSOR SANTIAGO ?

              Oh, this one is my favorite. The Ces Drilon Kidnapping News Black out because the extremely intelligent Philippine Media were afraid Abu Sayaf might get angry of the publicity. When Abu Sayaf is publicity hungry, even inviting Philippine Media the headless torso so they can piece it together and snap pictures. DUH !!!!!

              OK. Folks. It is better to be courteous and polite AND MISINFORM. You are typical tristanism of being a Filipino. ANOTHER AXIOM THAT STILL HOLDS TRUE: Goot grammar and impeccable spelling makes illogical news reporting true !!!!

    One of the many things I hate about Philippines is the spotty slow expensive internet service. For Php999.00 I only get 1mb/sec of service. Php999.0 is $25.00 US. Fast and zippy. Globetelecom’s WiMax is not perfectly implemented. WiMax is not yet operational in the U.S. my parents told me EXCEPT in Silicon Valley where my parents work as game coders. Yeah, both of them. So they make goot money. And by affinity so am I .

    Everytime I pay utilities, I have to excuse from my class just to pay utilities. JESUS MARY QUE BARBARIDAD !!! They do not accept by mail. No on-line payments. Only stand-in line at SM or Ayala. Jeeeez.

    This I admit, the women salesgirl at Ayala and SM are more prettier than those working at Makati. I WONDER WHY ? These salesgirl are helpful, dotting and very polite. The salesmen, too !!!!!! But in high-class establishment like PAL, they think they are sombody. But when I started speaking my native tongue, ENGLISH, I made them look like fools with their baluktot englishctzes. I told them, to make it easy for us let us speak Tangalog. But my Tangalog is baluktot, too. So we were just laughing. Then we exchanged cell numbers.

    Why I retired in the Philippines?

    The first time I brought my children in the Philippines, I brought them to Smoky mountain in Tondo, Divisoria, Central market, Squatters in Tatalon QC and Trinoma area. Also to the clean subdivisions in Makati and QC. Wanted them to see with their own eyes the difference both in social status and daily living of Filipinos,

    When we arrived back to the state, my daughter quipped one dinnertime:
    “Why is Manila so dirty, WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?, I wanted to go back to help because I cannot change my race, I am a Filipino. I have to start somewhere!”

    Next thing I knew she was participating in Spring cleanup of another neighborhood. She joined Students Habitat in her school. . When she returned to the Philippines, around our areas she started to pick up trash and one time she saw a dirty child carried by a beggar, she asked the mom that she would like to bathe the child and fed them. Small simple things.

    She discussed with young relatives to spread the values of cleanliness that picking up trash promotes good health around the neighborhoods and self esteem of people; also bought trash cans to place in front of some houses. Now people throw into the cans their litters.

    My children come back to the Philippines now every year to visit us. They embraced the culture instead of despising and try to make a difference as Filipinos,they also speak Tagalog fluently.

    “Doing something instead of plain trash talking”

    He he he

    • Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

      I have not retired, yet. I still have to graduate but what is holding me back is the Rizal Course which I keep failing and repeating. Imagine those 1800 century Filipinos reading the El Feli and Noli Mi without the benefit of a Doctorate of History professor graduate from U.P. and, yet, understanding and digesting what they were reading compared to todays pinoys. I’d say, the 1800 century Pinoys are more intelligent than the current breed.

      My parents brought me to the U.S. when I was in high school I got involved with the Black Eyed Peas kind of people and Manny Pacquiao kind. So, my parents exiled me to the Philippines. Here I am trying to make Filipinos lakad na matuwid.

      But Filipinos are very difficult species to teach. IT IS EASIER TO TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS THE FILIPINO OLD TRICKS !!!! That is why when they say Philippines is going to the dog, I am happy because DOGS ARE EASY TO TEACH.

      When I was in the U.S. BEING A FILIPINO IS AN UNFORTUNATE EMBARASSING CIRCUMSTANCE. I thought I was not white enough and tisoy enough to fit in the SoHo crowd in New York until I am here in the Philippines.

      Girls look at me. They said I am drop-dead gorgeous with perfect country-club English. No snootiness. Absent of snobbery. Big deal to them. So, I started to learn the tangalog language. It’s kind of difficult until someone introduced me to Visayan. Visayan is more easy to learn because 80% of their words are corruptly conjugated Spanish word which Jessica Sanchez and I have in common.

      Eventually I have to give up Visayan because in Manila if you do not speak Tangalog you are PROMDI !!! What is PROMDI ? It is a fusion of two words FROM DAPROVINCE.

      Wonderful thing about being BORNED IN THE USA is that even benign0 Aquino’s PMAyer cannot touch me. I flash my U.S. Passport and they kneel before me. Yes, Virginia, Born-in-the-USA do not carry citizenship cards. WE ONLY CARRY PASSPORt. AMERICAN.

      Every other day I report to US Embassy to tell them I am still alive. If I missed a day, Americans will send in their F-16 to track me down. TO HELL WITH PHILIPPINE SOVEREIGNTY !!! TO HELL WITH PHILIPPINE AIR SPACE. I am not going back to the U.S. in cheap coco-lumber coffin.

      But when Filipinos base jump from high0-rise condo in Hong-Kong wingless, the Philippine government cannot even do anything. Many Filipinos came back here headless. Some of them have to be pieced together like a jigsaw puzzle.

      Despite of it all. I love the Philippines. Just never mind the Filipinos. THEY HAVE GOD THAT WILL TAKE CARE OF THEM. Whereas, I have the United States of America to take care of me.

                @Rene
                I engaged Marianito to entrap him thru his verbal diarrhea revealing simpleton dreamer character with a family past. He refers every now and then to his parents how he came tobe indicating he was doing this ranting for his family. He pretends to be superior indicative that their family was once in a lofty ground but crushed by media.

                Notable is hatred to Philippine media, journalists and UP graduates. He refused to discuss specific politicians, corruption in particular though knowingly paricipating in a political blog.

                His profile suggests that his family members or himself were involved in Philippine government whether in business or positions but their illicit accumulation of wealth was exposed by media/ reporter and lost the position, election or business destroyed.

                Indignation is directed specifically to Rappler probably for being banished by Rappler in their blogs or the reporter exposing their family corruption is with Rappler now.

                Of course, he would deny this or he will invent another palusot.

                At JoeAm blog, I already noted his pattern, baited him to discourse but did not bite. Mariano was able to fool some unfortunately for him he came to smart CPMEers.

                @Rene
                Mariano is a simpleton dreamer trying to sell snake medicine to snake men. He was successful to those unsuspecting bloggers but came to the wrong site. His disdain of Rappler is due to banishment of him by Eappler in their blogs or the reporter who exposed corruption of his family is with Rappler now. Who is Up journalist at Rappler now?

                His motive is vengeance for his family to Philippine media, journalists, UP students and church leaders who probably connived and exposed the downfall of their family business from illegal means.

                Once their family was looked upon in society suddenly crashed down to earth indicating his propensity to being superior to Filipinos. Their wealth came from government indicated by his disdain to apparent good governance but refused to speak specifically of corruption and politicians in particular since he knowingly participated in a political forum. he might reveal himself unconsciously with his ranting upon touching names of politicians.

                He is engaging bloggers with reverse psychology by inciting anger, fury or irritation to readers thru trash talking of Filipino culture. he was talking about cultural change because change was the downfall of their family corruption.

                Mariano’s family members are nothing but thieves that is why he is pretending that they have good jobs in CA although in JoeAm blog, he said his mom was in NY. it’s all facade against a backdrop of illicit wealth crushed by media and Catholics.

                This is his family profile, the only way he could prove in denying is reveal himself publicly. his only recourse is PALUSOT

        • JosephIvo says:

          Leona, language is a wonderful instrument, one can use it in so many ways. Adjusting to the Philippine style is not easy for me. When I started teaching here and I showed a slide with the text “you can steal these ideas shamelessly” the class froze, no reaction at all; later I changed it in “you can copy these ideas shamelessly” and this time it created positive response. Stealing is a sin, copying not and people listen to the literal meaning. Here you cannot say “it costs 1 million (approximately is understood)” because that’s lying, you have to say “it costs one million, 24 thousand nine hundred ninety nine peso and forty eight centavos.”

          In many part of the world you say the opposite if you want to make a point without willing to look too serious. Here, if by accident I use my native satirical style I lose my audience straight away, I have to apologize and try to explain it again in a positive way.

          Of what I read, I think that Mariano loves Rizal but not the people giving twisted explanations he does not accept, people taking away the fun of reading and wondering. (The free mason Rizal despised the church so very explicitly! With only 10% of his anti-catholic coments, writers in the Catholic countries of Europe would have been imprisoned and excommunicated by the church. Just as Zola, Hugo, Marx and many others he had to have his novels printed in liberal Belgium.)

    • JosephIvo says:

      I was in the Peoples Park in Tagaytay yesterday and saw the Filipino genius. Instead of visiting the opposing sites you mentioned, you just can visit this park. Filipinos really care for foreign visitors, to save them an additional trip they just combine experiences. On one hand the magnificent views on the other hand they recreated Smokey Mountain., I visited in the afternoon and the amount of trash that covered the park is breathtaking.

    This is POLITICAL WILL. We need more of this not only in all tourist spts but also in MetroManila. Clear the sidewalks of illegal peedlers all over tourist spots.

    Next should be policing taxis, jeepneys and buses includingreduction of their numbers in tourists spots including airports.

          2. That cannot be accepted as prove because evidence was taken without search warrant
          3. Affidavit is not admissible in court unless corruborated by forensics
          4. Witness accounts are eng-get and biased

          yOU’LL SCREAM, Corona’s impeachment is political not otherwise. But when Clinton was impeached regardless its political nature AMERICANS DID NOT ABUSE ITS POLITICAL NATURE they went as if it was not political in nature.

          But this is Philippines, the land of @Victin Luz, SO, IT WILL BE MORE OF THE SAME.

          I’m not pro Binsy but comes 2016 he’ll be a winner unless unless the LP can match Binsy’s popularity to the Filipino people.

          • Victin Luz says:

            Yes I know , if election will be held today or in a year BINAY is unbeatable. last election when he won narrowly from Roxas, ” hindi pa alam ng mga botante sa country side kung ano ano ang nagawa nyang patiala Ali sa MAKATI. But for the next 3 years before 2016, lumalabas ang ga palapk na Gawain Nya diba.

            Ang alam nila noon ay maralita sya at GRAFT CLEAN sya ay ngayon alam na ng mga mama yang FILIPINO Kung sino sya.

            Don’t get me wrong I am not yet for ROXAS. Kung she can not clean HUETING and other illegal gambling , I will not vote him.

            And even PNOY if that HACIENDA LUICITA will be a Moro Moro , then goodbye PNOY din ako.

          Is it wrong to out what is wrong with Filipinos? My management professor told us in Quality Management “To know the solution to a problem is to know the problem first” But Filipinos hate knowing their problems. They have solutions to problems that doesn’t exist.

      • praetorius says:

        Boracay 20 years back is not the Boracay of today. Before, cottages all just like that… real cottages with nipa/bamboo materials. you have to hunt for ice cubes. you use kerosene lamps. you can walk for a good 30 minutes between “stations” with very few establishments in between. yes, walk…. no motorized transportation allowed other than the “interior” roads. bikes are ok somehow. and it was CLEAN, UNSPOILED.

        But now…. it’s a different story. A relative who works for the DENR have to do their water sampling far from the beach just to be able to get a “passing mark” on coliform levels, lol.

        So i am not really sure which “boracay” you are referring to 20 years back?

        • Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

          As what you have described Boracay was like that 20 years ago except for the water testing. Bungalows sat very close to each other, just like today. It was crowded 20 years ago, it is more crowded today, I can only surmise, because going to Boracay is cheap compared 20 years ago.

          • Cas Mationg says:

            You are full of it MRP. I was there in Apr1993. It was not crowded at all. My friends and I stayed in a hut. Natulog sa papag at naka kulambo. Paid P400.00/night. what Praetorius is stating above is true. I am from Aklan and I know the the “Legaspis”, the “Tapuzes” and the “Tirols” who owns huge properties there. These folks are from Makato, Aklan.

            • Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

              My crowd is not your crowd. Maybe I am so used to bungalows that when my girlfriends scream and groan and moan she cannot be heard from the next bungalow. Well, don’t worry, My girl Friend and I moved to Boracay Resort but still it is crowded for my taste. Chill !

            • praetorius says:

              this Mariano is delusional, lol. I can still remember way back if you want to buy the “boracay” t-shirt, you have to point to a printed design on paper (sort of like catalog) and WAIT (or come back for it) to be printed using silkscreen by a long-haired hippie type guy.

              it was not crowded at all…. baka ibang boracay ang napuntahan nya? nyahahaha

      • isellnuts says:

        I totally agree with this, what does a disciplined president can do if the Filipino people themselves are NOT.

        Take for instance the slogan of speaker Belmonte when he was still the Q.C. mayor; “maliit na basura ilagay sa sa bulsa” just try to be observant while walking on street people just drop candy wrappers and other plastic as the walk.

        SHAME ON US FILIPINOS we trashed our very own Luneta park on christmas eve in the full view of foreigners who we’re trying to wow and visit us.

        Try to visit Luneta park at 6:00AM its teeming with transients and vagrants who made the park as their home and trashes strewn all over the place right in the full view of the Dept of Tourism secretary’s office.

        Luneta park is lot better and more enjoyable to stroll in the 70′s than now.

        Anti-Littering Law: 10 Things You Should Know
        1. What is the Anti-Littering Law?

        The Anti-Littering Law is MMDA Regulation No. 96-009entitled, “PROHIBITING LITTERING/DUMPING/THROWING OF GARBAGE, RUBBISH OR ANY KIND OF WASTE IN OPEN OR PUBLIC PLACES, AND REQUIRING ALL OWNER’S, LESSEES, OCCUPANTS OF RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL ESTABLISHMENTS, WHETHER PRIVATE OR PUBLIC TO CLEAN AND MAINTAIN THE CLEANLINESS OF THEIR FRONTAGE AND IMMEDIATE SURROUNDINGS AND PROVIDING PENALTIES FOR VIOLATION THEREOF”, which was enacted into law by the Metro Manila Council on the 22nd Day of August, 1996. The regulation was amended on May 6, 1999 by MMDA Regulation No. 99-006.

        2. When did the Anti-Littering Law take effect?

        The law originally took effect on September 15, 1996. The implementation of the law was suspended last August 2002. The law will again be implemented in Metro Manila starting September 16, 2010.

        3. What acts are prohibited by the Anti-Littering Law?

        The Anti-Littering Law prohibits the following acts:
        o Littering, Illegal dumping, Illegal disposal of garbage;
        o Urinating, defecating, spitting in a public place;
        o Dirty frontage and immediate surroundings for establishment owners;
        o Improper and untimely stacking of garbage outside residence or establishment;
        o Obstruction (any dilapidated appliance, vehicle, and etc., display of merchandise, illegal structure along sidewalk);
        o Dirty public utility vehicles, or no trash can or receptacle;
        o Spilling, scattering, littering of wastes by public utility vehicles; and
        o Illegal posting or installed signage, billboards, posters, streamers and movie ads., etc.

        4. Who has authority to apprehend violators of this law?

        The MMDA will have deputized Environmental Enforcers monitoring the major thoroughfares of Metro Manila. These Environmental Enforcers (EE) will initially be in their mint green polo-shirt uniform (with MMDA logo), with identification cards (both employee ID and Deputation ID) clearly visible and displayed. They will be in charge of issuing Environmental Violation Receipts (EVR) to persons caught violating the Anti-Littering Law. The EE’s ID shall contain a written Deputation Order, stating the name and deputation number of the EE, his authority to issue EVRs, and until when the order is effective.

        5. How much is the fine if you violate this law?

        The penalties for violating the provisions of the Anti-Littering law, according to the nature of offenses, are as follows:
        Code Nature of Offense Option 1 (Payment of Fines) Option 2 (Render
        Community Service)

        01 Littering, Illegal dumping, Illegal disposal of garbage P500.00 8 hours (1 day)
        02 Urinating, defecating, spitting in a public place P500.00 8 hours (1 day)

        08 Illegal posting or installed signage, billboards, posters, streamers and movie ads., etc. P1000.00 16 hours (2 days)

        6. What is the MMDA’s protocol in deploying Environmental Enforcers?

        Environmental Enforcers will be deployed in teams. Each team will have a team leader and an assistant team leader, who will both have the exclusive authority to issue EVRs. These two will be assisted by one photographer and one recorder to document each apprehension made by their team leader or assistant team leader.
        A spotter shall be deployed by the MMDA for each team to monitor possible violators of the agency’s regulations. It is the spotter’s duty to bring the violator to the Environmental Enforcer for issuance of ticket. The Environmental Officer should tell the violator of the details of his/her violation, and the proper payment process.

        7. What are the procedures for payment of administrative fines?

        Upon apprehension, a violator will be given an option to either pay the fine, or to render community service. For payment of fines or rendering of Community Service, the following procedures should be observed:
        Option 1 (Payment)
        1. Report to MMDA HPSEPO for Order of Payment of the charged Administrative Fine according to the nature of offense committed.
        2. Go to the MMDA Treasury Operations Service for the payment of fine
        3. Submit the initial receipt to HPSEPO for clearance and documentation

        Option 2 (Community Service)
        4. Report to MMDA HPSEPO for proper orientation on the Environmental Regulations Schedule and Instruction
        5. Render Community Service
        6. Go to HPSEPO for clearance and issuance of Certificate of Compliance
        8. What if I don’t pay the fine nor render Community Service?

        If you do not show-up within 3-days after the receipt of the apprehension, you will be given the 1st summon which will only be valid for 15 days. If you still don’t settle your violation within 15 days, you will be given the 2nd summon which is also valid for 15 days. If you still don’t settle your violation after 15 days, the final summon, which is valid for 1 (one) month, will be given to you.
        If you still ignore the final summon, your case will be filed at the Metropolitan Trial Court of the city where you were apprehended. If you do not show up to the scheduled hearings, you will be given a Warrant of Arrest. In addition, your violation will be forwarded to the NBI.

        Failure to pay the administrative fine of P500 or render 8 hours Community Services shall be penalized, after conviction, by a fine of One Thousand Pesos (P1,000.00), or imprisonment of three (3) to seven (7) days, or both, at the discretion of the court.
        Failure to pay the administrative fine of P1,000 or render 16 hours of Community Service shall be penalized, after conviction, by a fine of Two Thousand Pesos (P2,000.00) or imprisonment of seven (7) days to one (1) month, or both, at the discretion of the court.

        9. If I have a pending violation of the Anti-littering law, will it be possible for me to obtain an NBI clearance? If not, what is the procedure for getting myself cleared from the violation?

        No, you will not be able to get an NBI clearance. To clear your record, you need to go to the MMDA and pay your fine. After paying, go to the HPSEPO and get your “Motion to Withdraw Information” certificate signed by the Senior Prosecutor of the DOJ. After this, bring the “Motion to Withdraw Information” certificate to the concerned Metropolitan Trial Court (MTC). After submitting, the MTC will give you the “Certificate of No Case.” Finally, bring your “Certificate of No Case” so that you’ll be allowed to obtain an NBI Clearance.

        10. What do I do if I want to protest my EVR or file a complaint against an Environmental Enforcer?

        If you feel your EVR was issued without any legal basis or in violation of the protocol, you may contest by going to the MMDA-HPSEPO Adjudication Office (7th floor MMDA Main Bldg. EDSA cor. Orense St. Guadalupe Nuevo, Makati City) to fill-up the protest form indicating all relevant details regarding your complaint, within 1 week (7 days) after the receipt of the apprehension.

    WILL BINAY SABOTAGE THE RH LAW?

    I am just being pro-active here. The RH law has been passed, but its implementation can be made difficult or ineffective if the next batch of leaders intend to disrupt it.

    The UNA party has the most number of anti-RH legislators: JV Ejercito, Mitos Magsaysay, JPE, Jinggoy Estrada.

    Who is the presidential candidate that has been identified in media as anti-RH? Is Binay a closet anti-RH?

    • fed_up says:

      @andrew lim. You have caused me concern. There’s a big risk the RH Law might follow the fate of POPCOM (POPulation COMmission) Program initiated by Pres. Marcos. When Cory Aquino became President, she was asked “or dictated upon?”) by the church to scrap it. In compliance with the Filipino habit of “utang na loob” (debt of gratitude”), she was only too willing to return a favor, because the church has played a role in shielding her from the seven military coup-d’etats that plagued her regime. Just like the POPCOM Program, the RH Law may, in the words of one CPMer, go into the “kangkongan” again.

      Let’s hope this time it won’t.

      • Victin Luz says:

        If that will be the case, we must be vigilant right now. We have to guard all the wrong posture and moves of BINAY. He must not win the presidency on 2016.

        BENIGN0 AQUINO IS JUST AN ANOMALY. Philippine “Journalists” know that. Bloggers know better than “Journalists Filipino”. THEY ARE NOT JUST TELLING YOU. Once benign0′s term is gone all the candies and goodies will be gone along with him.

    Life is good, sabroso drinking hot chocolate while breathing clean fresh sea breeze in South China sea.

    Those Filipino nurses in Central valley! How about those teachers in Texas. Cant blame them,
    America is land of opportunity. They exercised their rights, besides Americans invented personal injury and labor discrimination laws, that is why there are ambulance chasers with law degree(PHL has askals with pedigrees).

    These nurses and teachers, if they squablle, at least they are dividing what they sowed. Compared another Filipino nurse in New York. Inherited large sum after sowing good deeds. divvying being contested by long lost relatives of deceased who never washed the butt of the rich departed Huguette Clark. So you do not have to go to the library and find out who is this departed recluse. She was the great grandaughter of the founder of Las Vegas, the reason Vegas is in Clark county. This woman also bequeathed large sum to a recluse nephew who did not cash a large cashier check dated 2003 and recently found dead in the West coast as an homeless man dying from hypothermia. Life is a bitch sometimes, for lawyers were looking for him to hand his million dollar inheritance.

    I thought you are a just another Johnny Linsanity fan, now you are stalking me wanting to get married.

    First, I don’t do menage a trois with 3 sexes
    Second, I do not want to incur the ire of Boy Abunda and Vice Ganda by competing with them who is going to be first in same sex marriage in PHL. Besides I might not have the chance to be featured by Boy in The Buzz or become a contestant at Vice’s Showtime. I know how you feel, you dont have TFC.

    CPMers will love you now. Not because Johnny is your idol and professed love, but for finally speaking Tagalog, the dialect of Indonesians(check the library, why)

    He he he

    • Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

      Yeah! yeah! yeah! Goot Goot @Johnny be goot !!!

      Tagalog originated from Indonesia ? I wikied it. It seems, it appears tangalog is influenced by Indonesianese. So, if ever I am declared persona-non-grata by Philippine Government for speaking the truth, I can go to Kura Kura resort in Karimunjawa snorting coke and puffing aged weeds.

      Well, in Los Angeles Unified School District (the largest unified school in America) Filipinos sued a finance director for calling them “S****t**d and names … OF COURSE, FILIPINOS SUED !!!!

      Again, they hired WHITE AMERICAN LAWYER like Manny Pacquiao HIRED WHITE AMERICAN LAWYER AGAINST MAYWETHER. (Ba’t ang galing sa mga Pinoy pero if push come to shove THEY HIRE WHITE AMERICAN LAWYERS This is what Rappler can never tell you people)

      Well, to make short story long, Filipinos won !!! NOT BECAUSE Filipinos were able to prove they are not S****d and D****mb but because the use of words in America is banned. SO WHITE AMERICANS NOW LEARNED A LESSON. Never call Filipnos names. It is dangerous to their wealth.
      —————
      Itong mga Pinoy matigas ang ulo. My wealthy parents have poor Filipino neighbors (they are nurses which my parents consider poor). They have dogs. Thier dogs have authority problems and disobedient. They keep on barking. These Filipino nurses just let the dog barks.

      So my parents called 911 to report disturbance of the peace.

      911: 911 what is your emergency
      Parent: Dog bark. Always no stop. Owner not stop bark. Send police to stop bark
      911: Do you know the neighbors name, sir?
      Parent: I do not know them. They are nurses. Filipino
      911: In that case, sir, we do not send in the police BUT ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICERS. Filipinos do not fall within the purview of Los Angeles Police Department but Animal Control officers. Will send them right now sir,
      Parent: Tank you. Tank you. Yes, they are animals. Including Dogs.
      911: Sir, IT IS EASIER TO TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS THAN FILIPINOS OLD TRICKS.
      Parent: True! True 1 True! Send them to obedience school. Thank you.

          Amanpour Hotel ? Owned by the Aboitizes ? I’ve gone there plenty of times whilst constructed. It was raw beauty then. Now, it is not. It is ersatz and full of fakery. I wanted to go to places where there are no dotting slaves handing me my drinks. I want to walk unmolested and no slaves in white following me where ever I go.

          You are right Victin Luz, I prefer Coron. It is down to earth. I can commune with non-Filipinos and nature.

          • Johnny Lin says:

            Mariano

            Told you before, if you talk the talk, walk the walk.

            Wrong hotel name, wrong owner. Google it quick.

            Anyway, if you want to walk the walk read Mon Tulfo latest column in Inquirer about “How to be rich”. His book recommendation and his personal narration is worth for you since it is your dream.

            Although you have been dissing the Filipinos and say how you are different, it is now obvious and exposed, after trapping you, that you are a dreamer, trying to be different. In Philippine school school there is a local grade school animal fable about the one perched on top of a carabao saying it is taller than every animal on the road. Dont know if they taughted this in Ateneo grade school.

            Now you are a true Filipino., down to earth. You are despising the white clad slaves because you could not afford them. Tawag dun sour-grapes at hindi kinakain yun

          Mariano

          So you googled your iphone for the right spelling. You were used to watching CNN newscaster, Amanpour ha ha ha. Aboitiz, wrong A, double ha ha ha.

          He he he

        • Johnny Lin says:

          Moh Mariano

          Tulfo did not write this directly but I will share to you

          When you are rich and wanted something, do not ask for the price and do not think it is wasteful.

          The first rule on riches is:

          if you want it, enjoy it, money is not a problem, could be earned again.
          If you pause and think about the cost, you are not sure you will be happy buying it. Afterwards, if it is not worth, dont buy the same kind again. Charge to experience.

          of course it is not good to buy what you can’t afford

          He he he

          • Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

            HA! HA! HA! HA! Tulfo knows whereof he is talking.

            When I go to snooty tony fine diners, I JUST FLASH MY PRESS CARD and I get goot service plus deep discounts. I even get a tour of their kitchen.

            Having a Press Card opens hellelujahs to my liking.

          • Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

            That is why Tulfo got gulpi at NAIA for his arrogance. And thankfully for Tulfo he is MEDIA. His compatriots covered-up for him.

    Posted at 12/30/2012 6:50 PM | Updated as of 12/30/2012 7:04 PM

    MANILA, Philippines – Actress-host Kris Aquino, dubbed as the country’s “Queen of All Media”, is open to the idea of joining politics, just like most members of her family. xx”

    40 Years old is the minimum for pres’l candidate. Will she be on 2016?

    VP Binay prepare & watch out!

    • Cha says:

      Hi Leona,

      Wouldn’t it be much better if she just stays where she is?

      • Joe America says:

        I got to know Kris Aquino through a series of e-mail messages dealing with one of my blogs. She is very straightforward and kind, charming even, and I think she is definitely of her brother’s moral compass, believing the Philippines is best served openly and honestly. But I think the Philippines is ready for a president with credentials BEYOND that Aquino “glow of goodness”. I think it is ready for a smart, capable “executive” who ALSO treads the honest path.

        A guy like Jun Abaya.

        Sometimes it is hard to see people who occupy smaller jobs as capable of sliding into the BIG job. But the office makes the man or woman. Giving a competent individual the opportunity to make the office.

        • baycas says:

          I believe you’re right about Sec. Jun. Hope your comment will buoy the man up and become more relevant in the years to come.

          I heard he reads this blog during the Impeachment months last year. As I said, may he continue to do so.

        • Johnny Lin says:

          There are a lot of Abayas!
          JoeAm, Cha or Leona, Guingona or De Lima might be Abayas too, but can they coalesce the people?

          Skepticism about goodness is understandable but in this fortuitous voyage of nation rebuilding precautionary measures are needed.

          Building a house requires not only erecting the structure, finishing it to look presentable and beautiful is also as important. Who do you gonna rely, somebody promising or trusted?

            Johnny@55.1

            By this time most of those who support PNoys matuwid na daan already know whom they can trust to continue and probably improve on PNoy’s programs and accomplishments. I could see in the horizon Mar Roxas as the most qualified successor of PNoy. The promising “Abayas” could fit well after Mar Roxas. And I am sure there would be a number of them, i.e., jun abaya, Kim, Leila, Miro, jun Angara, Trillanes, Guingona, others, and maybe some of us here in the CPM. Please take note of my timeline of almost a decade. But unexpected turn of events could happen in 3 years and it is totally possible that one or two of the above names would find its way to the 2016 presidential elections.

            • Godofredo Damiani, aka GodDam says:

              Agree that Abaya and Guingona after 2016
              Agree on Roxas too.

              Binay saw the downfall of his ace in Cebu
              his decision to go there spoke of lack of judgment being VP accompanied by opportunists. Decision to oust Gwen was executive branch and he belongs to that office unlike Enrile.

              In retrospect, Aquino was right all along refusing to appoint Binay as DILG sec. he would have stacked the dept in his favor including the PNP commanders.

            • baycas says:

              That’s strategic planning…

    • isellnuts says:

      @leona

      Good comment, I agree with you. Only Kris can match Binay. No idea if she’ll be 40 comes 2016.

      If Cory was able to be the president so with Kris. Like mother like daughter. Though definitely I will abstain in voting.

      • Victin Luz says:

        Hmmm…… I think right now, I agree with you @Iselnuts@mam Leona….. BINAY will be no match with Kris

      • yeheywater says:

        @Isellnuts
        Kris Aquino is about 42 years old now, but highly unlikely to get involved in politics in the very near future. She knew what her mother went through in those presidency years, and she is aware to the difficulties Noynoy is having right now. For sure, the President and his sisters will not encourage any of the sisters for any elective public office.

        At the moment, Mar Roxas is the logical choice, but I’ll go to whoever PNoy endorsed…in the knowledge that he will choose the best person in the the given time.

        I hope compulsory voting is introduced in the Philippines, like in Australia as one of the bloggers from that country mentioned before…not sure if it was Mel.

    Pangulo ng Pilipinas Para sa Bagong Taon 2013

    [Ika-31 ng Disyembre 2012]

    Kaybilis po talaga ng panahon: Ito na po ang ikatlong bagong taon na ipagdiriwang ng sambayanan sa tuwid na daan. xxx”

    Sana, at least 75% something new and good happens in our government for YEAR 2013! Not “tu-wist na daan.”

    The country hopes so greatly for this. We have an election in the middle part of this YEAR. Will our voters still be TANGI? Blind, Deaf and Dumb? Let us see this YEAR!

    Will candidates still BUY VOTES? Rig the ballots? Steal the Ballot Boxes? Let us see.

    Kailangan magbabago? Maybe it will never be! Kasi, mahina ang investigation. Light ang punishment. It’s a misconception of ” let’s us reconcile with one another! ” It cannot be in the government!

    NO RECONCILIATIONS when violations of laws by public officers are committed! The State and people are prejudiced permanently!

        Noon kay Erap, puro jueteng at smuggling atbpa! Noong kay Gloria, ganon din lahat sa taas kanya! Kasama Simbahan Katoliko pa! Gloria Most High!

        Ngayun kay PNoy, mayroon sa mga paligid niya! UtwalUtwal…like someone who is appearing and disappearing. Nag a-alanganin pa!

        Wherever corruption can start, high or low, it can and will. If voters elect corrupt or known corrupt candidates, for congressmen and senators, it will be started there.

        Mayors, Governors, atbpa! Eh, sa Barangay level, dami na rin! Sa gitna mayroon din!

        What is the simple do able solution to stop corruption? FLATTEN ‘em! SQUEEZE ‘em! A political will is needed from president, lawmakers, judges and prosecutors, law enforcers, atbpa. But now, it is not happening. VIPs who are under arrests are getting sick suddenly and stays inside high class hospitals than in jail cells..

        Our judges and prosecutors are softies! Some of these under arrests even have cell phones; eat food as brought to them by supporters, et.al. Why not order that they eat same food of ordinary temp jail birds? No cell phones, etc. too?

        But cannot be done, ’cause judges and prosecs are softies! No will at all. Even some senators prefers reconciliations immediately for VIPs jail birds! So, it is difficult to enforce equality of jail birds treatment. What happens is SELECTIVE ang justice system natin.

    Now, the PCGG will recommend to close the hunt as it spends more than what they can recover…?

    There was lack of momentum and spirit in the act to recover. Under the “Revoluntionary Gov’t” for 8 or 10 months of Pres. Cory had, it had all the options. Yet, too excessive “rule of law” was instead applied in the difficult hunt and recovery. The chance was lost.

    Next time, stolen wealth of the people, under a Revoluntionary Gov’t, the rule of law on conclusive presumption should be reversed: All suspected plundered wealth are conclusively presumed stolen and is deemed owned by the State and the people. Period!

    Now, the Marcoses and some Cronies are back in power! Crime does pay indeed!

        Busy posting again, work done, almost 5 in LA area now. Good job, you do not waste company time using their computer.

        Tell you what, work overtime, earn more and try going to Columbia and Croatia. Good tourists spots to learn street trades. Better than those other places you visited which are strictly tourists pictiuresques. Mekong river is good, try sightseeing around golden triangle. When you feel like you wanted to live like us rich and famous, Bora bora and maldives are serene tropics or rent in the island of Richard Branson in the carribean.

          @Johnny Lin is right !

          Allow me to put the record straight. I am from California. I have travelled to Italy, France, Spain and Portugal. I’ve gone to Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Paraguay. In Asia I do not like India, Bangladesh and Thailand. I am looking forward to go to Nepal. I also have travelled to the Philippines. Philippines is a zoo 2nd only to India. But the most exotic place I wanted to live is Laos and Vietnam. These two asian countries is a bomb !!!! These are the countries left behind by time.

          My dream is to take roadtrip from Mekong Delta all the way to Hanoi stopping over Da Nang and the DMZ called South-North-Reunification Line. I like their culinary cuisine more than artery-clogging FDA-disapproved Adobo.

          So much to that …

          Americans seems to know how FILIPINOS LOOK LIKE. In DeVry University billboard they used a traditional brown-skin-punk’d nose Filipino as their “model”. Metropolitan Transit Authority-Los Angeles, Bank of America and that mall over WEst Covina used a FILIPINO LOOK ALIKE not some tisoys or tisays with American looks. NO! NO! NO!

          Filipinos in America and Filipinos all over the world should protest to these entities for denigrating the looks of the Filipino by making models out of tradiitional looking brown-skin-punk’d nose.

          I could have loved the Filipnos, BUT HOW COULD I LOVE THE FILIPINOS WHEN THEY HATE THEIR LOOKS ? How could I love Filipinos when they hate their language. They’d rather speakengese goot englischtzes.

          Chinese, Korean, Indian childen are bilenguals BUT FILIPINO CHILDREN ARE …. REFEAT … ARE ONELINGUALS, English. WHY ?

          People in Filipno blogosphere attack me for hating FILIPNOS? No! I love Filipnos. it is those who attack me hate Filipnos because they do not want to know who The Filipinos are. !!!!!

          i am changing the culture of the PHilippines. Politics to me is soooo low down crass. It is gossips indulged by men.

          You got him in the jugular. Now, he dearly wants to belong. But it’s tooooo late due to over exposure. And no more bullets in his arsenal. So, let’s “rumble” and stay the course. The 2013 mid-year election is fast approaching.

          • Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

            HERE IS MY PREDICTION FOR THE MID-YEAR ELECTION IN THE PHILIPPINES:

            1. Filipinos DO NOT KNOW HOW TO COUNT because they are POOR IN MATH
            2. Filipinos will still be counting votes to next year
            3. No Filipino politicians will ever concede
            4. Loser Filipino politicians will forever say that they are cheated (AS ALWAYS)
            5. Of course, the political dynasty wins (AS ALWAYS)
            6. Filipino do not vote on their conscience but on what is offered by the Philippine Media
            7. The elected is the reflection of Philippine Media
            8. Corruption is the reflection of Philippine media
            9. FILIPINO WILL FOREVER BE HAPPY. In the recent study, FILIFINOS ARE AGAIN TOP 10 IN HAPPIEST PEOPLE ON EARTH MAKING PHILIPPINES THE HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH besting Disneyland

            @Rene

            Few things deeply bothering Marianito
            1. hates Philippine media
            2. hates UP journalism graduates- Raissa is.
            3. Knowingly participates in this political forum but says he does not engage in Politics
            4. refused to comment about specific case of corruption or political personality.
            5. Hates the government and Filipino habits in general.

            Believe family member or himself was involved in politics, or government position/connection. Lost in election or involved in corruption or family business affected by exposure in Philippine media probably by a UP journalist, afterwards ridiculed by people they knew resulting to his general criticism or ridicule of Filipino culture.

            Like cooking adobo, we all cook Filipino way except he adds curry and say it is still adobo conforming to accepted international gustatory standard of spicy food. We may not agree to his taste but he is right it is still adobo.

            Subdued somewhat, less ranting, more conciliatory, he is asleep now but he will start posting again probably around 9-11 pm Philippine time before he goes to work.

      i wish we would discuss again about relevant issues today like the Garcia’s of Cebu- Is she still barracading herself at the Cebu Capitol? How is the everyday operation going on the capitol? What are the reactions if any of the 3 UNA Kings? I’m sorry, nawala ang sense of humor ko. I think most of you are paying too much attention only to Marciano Pacifico Falayfay whoever he is. Let’s ignore him for awhile. We know what kind most filipinos are made of. so, what he is saying isn’t really new. It’s time to discuss other issues . Thank you!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  71. Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

    In 1774 Lloyds of Londo was founded. Since then standard insurance policy wordings excludes “Acts-of-God”.

    TODAY, standard insurance policy wordings now says “Natural Calamities”. So, I went to Asian Institute of Insurance (aii) in Alabang. By the way, A-I-I IS an arm of Asian Institute of Management, they said VATICAN PROTESTED THE USE OF “ACTS-OF-GOD” CLAUSE because God is merciful not demagogue.

    So, there you are folks, “Natural Calamities” is not god made.

    So, I asked them further, if it is not God made, who made it?

    They said, it is man-made. Man dinigrated the environment.

    So, therefore, GOD IS PONTIUS PILATE THAT WASHED HIS HANDS ….

    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL AND BELATED HAPPY HOLIDAYS …..

      You are already embarrassing me for constantly giving credit to my name, God;
      Acur8, I always wash my hands after pee.

      Will keep in mind to use Pontius Pilate as my next name change, following Charlie Chaplin change theory on my constant name, God

      I’m also flattered for you taking the time to research in Google calculator that my name was the subject of discussion about insurance coverage. I promise the next deluge will be unnatural, not by nature

      • Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

        He! He! He! Let us not be afraid of God’s NATURAL DISASTER. God hate the poor so much that God made them suffer the more. Whenever there are floods and typhoons IT IS ALWAYS THE POOR THAT GET THE BRUNT OF IT.

        God loves the poor so much that when God spank poor people they pray back to God that spank them. But when God spank intelligent and wealthy people, intelligent and wealthy people fight back. BY MOVING TO ANOTHER RELIGION.

        IN Religion, POOR and DISASTER is always used in the same sentence, whereas, wealthy and intelligent are common denominators of the godless. Weeeeee !!!!!! HAWR! HAWR! HAWR!

        • Godofredo Damiani, aka GodDam says:

          Oh Mariano
          You said wealthy and intelligent are common denominators of the godless.

          Sorry, looks like you need to spend tons more tokens to go and learn in the libraries before you could be par at my intelligent level

          I am God, wealthy and intelligent debunking your denominationator

          You are so cheap shopping at Seafoid city that is why you know where all those contaminated condiments are manufactured.

          When you are as rich as me already start by stopping shopping at Seafood. Give you a hint how we rich enjoy extravagant lifestyles. Start ordering fresh food from fine gourmet exclusive suppliers like Harry & David delivered at your doorstep flown directly from the source like lobsters from Maine, caviar from Caspian sea, foie gras and champagne from France and single malt from Scotish highlands.

          walk the walk before talking the talk, your ignorance, at least above stupidity, is showing beneath my intelligence

          Keep trying reaching my status, dreamers welcome

          He he he

          • Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

            Dear Godofredo “The God” Damiani,

            I DO NOT grocery shop at Filipino stores. Not because I am not patriotic or nationalistic it is because of lack of parking. If ever they have parking, it is narrow. Most of all Filipinos are bad drivers. They drive their cars like they push their cart in Filipino grocery stores. These Filipnos do not know their right of way. And they give me bad looks. NOt only that, they keep staring at me. I do not know why they stare at me maybe becuase I do not look like a Filipino. And I am handsome.

            This is how I came to question why GDP of the Philippines is shooting to the stars when I go shop at Seafood City, Pacific Seafood and other Filipino grocery stores from National City to SanFo to Vegas and Jacksonville Florida 80% of their products are not made by Filipinos. How dare they call themselves FILIPINO STORE. They are not Filipno store. They are Tha-i-Chi stores. Their coco milk from Thailand. Their noodles from China. Well, their tienderas are definitely Filipinos. Filipinos who are not courteus at all. They throw my change on the counter instead of handing it to me American style, look me in the eye and smile. How in the world Philippine GDP is rising when they cannot even manufacture noodles and catsup and canned coconut?

            I like Filipinos for one thing. When I am around them I feel superior. My englischtzes is flawless. My critical thingking is impecable. And I do not drive a Toyota or a Honda or a Lexus or a Mercedes these are generic luxury cars but a brand of choice by Filipinos.

            Filipinos success in America is a NURSE.

            • Johnny Lin says:

              Oh Mariano
              You are handsome, that makes two of us. Bet, you are again next to me.
              I haven’t posted yet my American name, Brad although others call me GC.

              Honestly, i dont know how the inside of Seafood city looks like. One time I was in Vegas and wanted to eat lunch at a Filipino restaurant. I asked the chambermaid at Bellagio suite for direction and she answered me by saying “besides Seafood city”. That was the first time I heard the name.

              When I was training as an intelligent exchange student, overheard two foreign doctors saying, Filipinos are easy to please, just give them mercedes benz and rolex, they wont complain anymore. Never owned a rolex though I wore rolex in high school and college but bever bought one for myself except to give as gifts to my relatives. Patek and Cartier are more to my lifestyle simplicity. Never owned a mercedes, though i drive a porsche and bentley now. But that does not mean I do not love Filipinos.

              I love Filipino nurses, not only they are pretty, smart and financially secure now, for they made my life so easy while training as an intelligent exchange student. According to american employment statistics, nursing and other related healtcare careers are the top employment opportunities now and for the next two decades.

              You did not enlist in the US navy that is why you are not married to a Filipino nurse

              He he he

              • Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

                Filipino nurses are difficult to understand, Johnny. They practice english on their children causing their children never to learn their parents’ tribal dialects back in the Philippines. Yet, when they go to work they speak tangalog. When administrators of this Central Valley hospital in California told Filipinos not to speak tangalog but speak english only, THEY SUED !!!

                These US-Citizenship card-carrying fake-American Filipino nurses used everything in their arsenals against this hospital. FIRST, they used a WHITE AMERICAN LAWYER despite their telling me that Filipinos are intelligent bunch of english-snob people; SECONDLY, they coalesced despite the gossip, backstabbing, constant squabbling and comparing their Corollas against their Corollas.

                THE US-Citizenship card-carrying fake-American Filipinos won !!!! Now they fought among themselves again how they are going to divvy up their winnings. NEVER ENDING STORY.

                The US-Citizenship card-carrying fake-American Filipinos also told me that there are plenty of UCLA graduate Filipino lawyers … BUT WHEN THEY ARE AROUND TO PETITION THEIR SQUABBLING DEPENDENTS, they go to Garfunkel just to fill up petition papers !!! KASI ANG PUTI MATINDI. NAKASANDAL SA PADER.

                Yung mga feel-goot news by Philippine Media is only feel goot.

                GOSH, GALING PA LA AKO MAG-SPEAK nang tribal language kuh !!!!

                Weeeee !!!!!! Johnny, I love you. We can git married soon and splash it in Balita Filipino Newspaper as the “FIRST SAME-SEX FILIPINO MARRIAGE”.

          • Johnny Lin says:

            Mariano

            Filipinos use white lawyers because results are quick and easy. Life is cruel too. in America color still speaks silently. Take it or leave it. Complaining or preaching will not make a difference for Filipinos as long as they are minorities except probably ……. Never. Facts of life are uncontestable.

            This is a true story: I did not use a white lawyer but a rich Creole lawyer friend who was street smart. He did not do anything except to file papers with judges he was friendly with to extend my stay while gathering documents. I supplied all the information. Finally, I was being deported by regional court. We drove to DC, faced the final 3 immigration justices and personally explained my case with supporting documents. argued that I should not be deported for intelligence because I would be an asset rather than a burden to the country. There was a loophole in the immigration law we argued that should apply to me.

            Today, America is granting visas to intellectual foreigners who could contribute, calling them special visas.

            He he he

            • Mariano Renato Pacifico says:

              Dude, lucky you. Filipinos in West Coast still prefer Garfunkel. I do not know why. Maybe because of constant barrage of Garfunkel sit-in show in TFC Channel.

    • Rene-Ipil says:

      What ruthless acts does a demagouge or rabble-rouser do to classify such acts as natural calamities or “force majeure”? Could a demagouge produce the intensity 9.2 earthquake in Fukushima with his rabble-rousing?

      Mukha yata na daplis talaga ang iyong kaisipan. Calling Dr. Hu and Dr. Pill before it is too late. Baka may mahawa pa itong si Marianito.
