@friendlyfire
Maybe we could discuss something of substance.  Don't be offended but these sound more like rantings. 


For example, the passport issue was an issue way back in nov/dec last year, it's now April.  Back then Cayetano was all over the news informing the public of actions they were taking.  Opening slots for jan/feb/etc, bringing mobile passport caravans to municipalities, etc.   

ww2, Wow sa totoo lang I'm bit perplexed how you came up with this argument.  Your point of view or maybe you read it somewhere?  Anyway Marawi ended in our favor, terrorists big heads are dead. 

crooks out of jail, smuggling, drugs.  According to PNP statics crime is down more than ever.   

just this afternoon @CNN there was press briefing on the team in charge of operation boracay, their plans etc. 

High prices.  I stopped buying sugary drinks, it's bad for you.  I do the grocery shopping in my house, unless you buy the heavily taxed items the increase is very minimal.  Meat, fish, rice, tinapay very minimal.  Sugary products, cigarettes, etc. = ubos budget. 
shit happens.

I chatted with some PTV, PIA and PCOO staff in Legaspi during the eruption a few months ago. Off the record they asked how as a fellow governnment worker, I felt about the current admin. I said, I could no longer care less how many he killed or how many fools he has in his cabinet. What really riles me is how he bends ove and how he tries desperately to shove the Chinese on us like a parent desperately matching an unwanted suitor on his daughter. Surprisingly they agreed with the sentiment.

   -  marawi is a dead city. in fact it was the president who provoked the terrorists  in destroying the city. it was an intelligence failure bec most of the cabinets and the pres are in russia when the terrorists attack the city.  15 billion intelligence budget going to waste.   thousand civilians displaced, 100 soldiers killed, billions of pesos  in war time operation and another 20 billions of pesos just to rebuild a city.

  crooks out of jail, smuggling, drugs.  According to PNP statics crime is down more than ever.   
  - lim, espinosa, arroyo,estrada, enrile, napoles, 22 billion shabu smuggling, binay,  richard tan, boc chief who cleared a certain smuggling case got promoted, arroyo's nephew cleared from drug raps.

High prices.  I stopped buying sugary drinks, it's bad for you.  I do the grocery shopping in my house, unless you buy the heavily taxed items the increase is very minimal.  Meat, fish, rice, tinapay very minimal.  Sugary products, cigarettes, etc. = ubos budget.

  my goodness, stop telling me what to do with my budget. we need sugar for our coffee, dessert, dishes and other things. canned goods have gone up including rice. try comparing the gasoline during past admin and  present. a yr ago i have gasoline budget of 4k per month but right now it is 6k. train law is  still phase 1 and our inflation rate is already @ 4.1 percent and that's only 4 months after the implementation. 



@ boracay - build a casino?

kuya @friendlyfire could you explain more on your ww2 comment.  Your narrative inferred there is a correlation between ww2 and our battle readiness to win/lose in a major city.  Your post above doesn't follow any of that.

The Marawi Incident is not exactly an intelligence failure... I have a cousin in the military and he tells me that they already knew about the presence and the impending attack of the rebels in that city. The intelligence data has already reached Malacañang way before the attack... but apparently the decision makers thought it wasn't a real threat. The rumor among the uniformed services then was that the President assured the Military Top Brass that these rebels will not push through with the attack because "he knows someone who can reach out" to these people. If you listened to the President's speeches before about the Marawi Incident, he did mention in passing of knowing about the attack beforehand.

Well Bato did admit they know about the attack, they just don't know "when". Thats why they ALL decided it ok to join the jaunt in Russia.  :lol:

Like 911? Right, the government knew but failed to act.

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said it was not diplomatic to call the emerging regional power a “bandit,” as Manila and Beijing’s territorial disputes could be resolved peacefully

However, their idea of so-called peaceful resolution is bending over for China.

^ Are you referring to the joint exploration deal with China? If so I'm actually quite impressed with it. 60-40 split and this is from disputed regions. Meanwhile the Malampaya gas fields which is clearly within our sovereign territory we only get 10%.

Passport was great when it was being handled by our very own Boss Bryan and Pilipinas Teleserv. There was a series of super fishy deals toward the end of the last admin that suddenly awarded printing and scheduling to APO Productions and that's when it all went to hell.

Unemployment is high and yet we will still import workers?!

https://www.rappler.com/nation/201463-salceda-philippines-import-skilled-workers-from-china-burma

That's the China package, just about everything from raw material to labor comes from them, high interest rates,  poor due diligence...it is predatory lending on a sovereign scale.

come on Toshi!
