Easy come easy go. That would be ample resources to create a company that creates jobs. Even a mere million bucks can do a lot of goods if used wisely and smartly.

Just wonder what he could do in the Congress: not unless his punches could restore order in this corrupt chamber.

I hope I'm happily wrong, but right now, all I can say is "there goes another good name down the sh*tpool of Philippine politics".....

correction, Pacquiao, last I heard, is a college graduate. One of the things I admired about this guy is that he didn't, and doesn't, just sit on his easy chair after work.
He did finish college, or at the very least, on the way to that.
But, like some people pointed out, he could have put his money to better use, like putting up a business that will create jobs for the country, etc.
As it is, he chose to throw it away in the leach-filled rivers of politics.
Best of luck to him.
I hope after four years (if he wins) he's still the same ole Pacman.

On the other hand, if he wins, he breaks a political monopoly in his province....that is, IF he doesn't start one himself.
To be fair, maybe he does have a heart for serving the Filipinos in that part of the Philippines, and going on eventually to serving the larger part of the Filipinos in the Philippines.
But Philippine politics is a sh*tpool, like I said, and anyone who wades into it gets splattered all over with crap from everybody else in it.
In the first some years, maybe it won't be obvious, but as time drags on, the smell will eventually waft from the direction of the politico, or at least will be imagined by others through the power of suggestion from stupid and equally corrupt media.

I am not sure about the college, but i am sure that in Feb. 2007 he completed his high school exam and past it. Something what like the GED in the United States.So that makes the poster that said he only completed 3rd. grade again wrong in stating facts. I myself agree he could have done more in the business area, but i am not sure how much of his money is already tied up in business ventures. As a servant for the people most in politics r forced to bow to special interest groups. That being the sad truth can turn a persons life around and they forget about the people!! Look at what has happened in the U.S. over the past 50 years!!

A poster in one of the threads here said that Pacquiao is a philantrophist and have set up several foundations.
That may be so, and the foundations may have been motivated by a desire to really help, but then again, foundations are a way of the rich in avoiding too much taxes, so they don't really mean much.
But, to be honest, I like this guy.
He's what I'd call a just down to earth guy whose feet, right now, is still solidly on the ground.
I hope politics do not turn him into a rotten apple.

I don't know where you heard that Pacman finish college I know for the fact he didn't. I have relatives living close to where he use to live when they're still poor. I feel sorry for him for entiring politic some people just going to use him to their own benifits. Pacman was saying his going to help the poor he don't need to entire politic to help the poor. Amen to that.

Okay, I take back what I said and apologize. I just looked up his bio at wiki and found he just passed the high school equivalency test and there was no mention of his graduating college.

I guess I must have confused him with someone else.

Thanks for giving me the heads up, guys.

If Pacman really want to help the poor he don't need to enter politic he got plenty of money to do that. I'm not richs but I help alot of poor people without anything in return, He can do the same thing if he really want to help. I think he got another agenda. Poor guy! I feel sorry for him. I hope you loss for your own good.

Tell me the facts about ur last comment concerning even God makes mistakes!! This should b good. And i for 1 never said u lie, but i have asked for facts concerning some of the allegations u have made. Every1 in this world that has freedom of speech has a right to they're own opinions. But opinions based on facts gain much more respect for the people!!! Your probably not a bad person at all, but somewhere down the line you lost all respect for the government in the Philippines and it shows in most of ur post. The world is not the perfect little place most would like. Was that the mistake you were thinking about when u said even God made mistakes?

Pacman dropped out of school in the 6th grade. He may have bought a degree but theres no way he earned one, he's to far behind to have done that.

Electing that roid consuming moron into any office would further prove how ignorant and dysfunctional the Philippines is as a populous and as a nation.
