true, they bring their third world mentalities during those early years you mentioned, but looking at them now, they took the opportunity of the hospitality and generosity of Uncle Sam, attended free schools, took jobs that were rejected by non third world mentalities....through hard labor, honesty, humility, patience...
and now, they are proud holders of college degrees, good paying jobs and living above standards with all the comforts of big homes and flashy cars ...
And the mayors of San Francisco and Oakland are Asians...
They are now making the "golden state" sparkle like gold!
Yes the Mayors are ASIAN, not filipino. Filipinos hold no position of power or influence in california. Stop trying to claim other peoples history and/or success.

So what is wrong if Filipinos can buy the nicest cars???If they have the means and does not ask from you, why are you envious???
Unlike asians, fils are wasters who waste money gambling and/or purchasing material things they practically can't afford. Fils enjoy pretending to be affluent aka well when in fact most that I know have financial issues. Some take out loans to travel to PI to give the illusion they're doing well when in fact most are peons, delivering pizzas, working homecare and other minial jobs. They return here deeper in debt and never able to get ahead. Not to forget wasting money they generally do not have helping lazy relative back in the philippines.

Coversely asians tend to save money, invest in businesses and education of their children

Yes Filipino's are so happy being poor. A simple life, they don't want aircon or doctors for their kids. They hate money right? How many millions are OFW to make money? Or so desperate to go to the States they sucked and fuc@ed the 7th fleet like you did.
If they love it so much why are they all trying to leave.
That's not true. They like aircons. In fact they will steal your aircons and illegally tap the electricity.

Once again blame the foreigner, blame the messenger, make sure the Filipino's have no responsibility in it. Want the foreigner to change the injustice??LOL!!!! Oh you expect the foreigner to fix injustice too. So now the Filipino seems to have no blame, no responsibility in it and exempt from fixing their own injustice.
All on the presumption I didn't take action when I did. Know what I was told????? The family has to file a complaint and since it was the family that did it OMG no complaint so go fu@k yourself. The priest I talked to said he would approach the family and he advised me to stay away from it or get slapped with a slander suit by the family. See they make money whoring out their own child then make money off the foreigner with slander. Only in the Philippines.
Hey keep searching for a way it's my fault. I love the bullsh@ that comes out of your head it's fuc#ing hilarious.
What does foreigner have to do with anything? If you see an injustice have the courage to do something about it or shut the fcuk up. It's that simple. Don't try to make yourself to be someone you're not. You're not disgusted. You're just another loud mouth know-it-all American running his mouth on an internet forum because you don't have the balls to follow through on something. Being a foreigner has nothing to do with anything. You're just another loud mouth pussy on the internet.

It's not your fault for what her parents are doing to her. It's your fault for acting like a moral upstanding citizen activist when you're just an internet blowhard who is in the Philippines for as much sex R&R your US dollars can buy.

Well your not reading fu@ktard. I did everything and nobody cares. Not the police the priest or social services. As I stated if you would read a family member has to file the complaint.

Just because Americans are fuc@ing your mother and sister here for a Jollibee double yum don't take it out on me. Tell them to stay home with their legs closed smells like a fish market.

Are you talking about yourself stealing aircons and illegally tapping electricity? You're a Filipino.

WE are talking about people in the barrios. They live in nipa huts/bamboos and depend on fresh air either coming from trees surrounding their houses or sea breezes ...they don't need aircons..

How do you know? Married to a Filipina, who is a waster and enjoy gambling??? Well, if your acquaintances are irresponsible going to deeper debt and never able to get ahead, that is their problem; unless of course, if you have to help them and your pocket is emptied too...

Did I say they are Filipinos?? You are always provoking when it comes to Filipinos. Did somebody kick your ass....hole!!

Stop trying accusing me of something that I do not claim. Unlike you, I'm not envious of the success of other people.

But I can cite you three successful lawyers: Simeon R. Acoba, Jr., JD – Former Associate Justice on the Hawaii State Supreme Court[18]
Kiwi Camara – Attorney; youngest person to enter Harvard Law School

No I'm not married to a filipina, my brother is. With that said I know many fil-ams, illegal alien fils and refugees. I'm well aware of their reality. I wouldn't help any of them under any circumstance. Their stupidity is not my problem, however it can be entertaining.

Considering the open secret that the Philippines has a vibrant and strong haven of both “legal” and illegal gambling, attending to the reality that the Philippine government itself is in fact the biggest gambler in the country, it is not only practical but also proper to have though but a simple knowledge of the nature and consequences of gambling addiction. This marked liability has not only personal but also social repercussions that can be anything but dignifying and inspiring.

The mere mention of Pagcor plus PCSO plus Jueteng automatically means billions and billions of pesos — while many millions of Filipinos are miserable and hungry. This detestable phenomenon only means that more and more people, locals and foreigners, are becoming gamblers, be these moneyed or wanting individuals.

Thus it is that having though but a simple appreciation of the many liabilities of gambling addiction is certainly not a mere academic exercise. Reason: Among other things, it says what gambling really is — notwithstanding all hypocritical advertisements to the contrary such as sports, educational and other “grants” from local and/or national gambling agencies.

Big and serious preoccupation about all possible ways and means of getting money primarily in order to gamble. Serious and continuous need of increasing amounts of money for the ultimate purpose of gambling with more excitement and greater expectation. Restlessness and irritability with the prospect of being unable to gamble for whatever reason or cause. Gambling in order to recover lost money only to eventually lose again. Lies and deceit to cover-up gambling. Commission of illegal acts — such as dishonesty, fraud, forgery, embezzlement, theft and the like — to finance gambling. Loss of normal domestic and/or standard social relationships — inclusive of job, profession or occupation — on account of gambling. Reliance or dependence on others to remedy a desperate situation caused by gambling.

I believe, some elderly Filipinos go to casino for relaxation not to gamble. Because in the first place, they have not much money to gamble.

The hard core gamblers are not only Filipinos so for you to be so fixated criticizing the Filipinos is something hard to understand. I can also copy and paste a lot of articles of people/politicians in the USA, who are dishonest and immoral, but for what purpose will I gain, nothing.
