Yeah it seems so. LOL!

That was a really large sum of money that could have helped a lot of people.

I'm not pro-Arroyo but I pity her because everybody is against her but it's her fault. There's a lot of proof that she's really corrupt and abused her position to gain money while the people here are getting poorer. And every wrong doing has it's punishment so she reaps what she sow...

Hopefully this is true about no bail for Arroyo. If so, this is a sign that cultural changes in Philippine politics is starting to show for the better.

Yes this is a sign. I'm not really a pro nor an anti-Aquino but I thinks he's really doing his best to change the government and the economy.

The problem is our fellow kababayans who like to argue and complain about how useless the government is yet they don't do anything to improve themselves and expect the government to give them money or make them rich with a blink of an eye.

It really sucks that people here can be so blind yet proud.

So blind to see that they themselves are the reason for their suffering. They vote for politicians who pay them. Then they complain if things gone wrong, Then why have they vote them in the first place.

So proud. Yeah pinoy pride as we say but in order to be a real filipino citizen, one must learn to open their eyes first and see that things are not going anywhere unless one changes for the better.

Exactly. But if more can put a little time and effort to help our country in any way they can, such as putting litter in bins, a little social etiquette and helping others, then these little steps can lead to better changes instead of bludging and expecting others to do things for them.

I agree with you...
I believe this country has great potential if people will just learn to have environmental, or social awareness.
Manila is really disappointing. It's very dirty...

I let my sister-in-law stay at my house to look after it, some joke. I went apeshite when I went there in April. Rubbish just left outside the backdoor and holes burnt everywhere in the grass. When they decide it is really bad they just add to the greenhouse effect by burning it. I said to the Yaya no fires take the rubbish to the bins for collection. I watched her and she took the rubbish to a vacant lot twenty yards away on the other side of the road, the bins are forty yards away at the bottom of the road. I pointed out to her that as now she had to walk to the empty lot and take it to the bins she was now walking extra. Such lazy unthinking people. I had a decorator in and he painted the house top to bottom inside and out, he got upset because I said I was going to deduct money for the empty paint cans and rubbish he intended to leave. I said to him that leaving the site clean was part of his job, he moaned and groaned but cleared it and got his money. What the hell is wrong with these people? They must think us foreigners have the same low standards as them but of course when I say this it will be my fault eh! Crystal.

They can file all the cases against her all they want. Gloria Arroyo, Still being pamper in Veteran hospital while the rest of the crooks getting rotten in jail. Are they really going to throw her ass in jail or this is only for show.? There is solid evidence against her but she's still in hospital arrest. Is Noynoy protecting her?! I'll bet. After all they're partner in crimes!

I believe Noynoy is not protecting Gloria if she's in jail already. Pero malayo yan!

Your in-laws and the relatives of your wife are lazy people. They're lazy because you pampered them with money. They are the only people surrounded around the perimeter of your house in and out and you generalize all the Filipino that they are Lazy and thieves? I think it was your fault was these in-laws of yours are lazy bum because you're trying to impressed them that you're good son-in laws. Of course you did ask favor from them too.

Because youre frustrated and mad at them, that's why throw all your frustrations in here in the Forum.

We don't know you. Technically, we don't really know how you treated your wife or your in-laws or her relatives , we don't really know if they steal your stuff, or you let them eat your elbows. If you did, it's none of our fucking business if they steal from you or not. That's your own miserable life.

If you come to this Forum and brag how nice people they are! Then SHUT YOUR FUCKING MOUTH!! What is your problem.

No one steal in my place because I never invited no one over.

If you're just making it up the stories about them then you're a backstabber! Or deal with it.

If you think they stole valuable stuff from you then go report it to the police and stop fucking complaining your stupid life. Got it? Thank you.

Bad View , are you sure you're an honest person? I don't think so! Are you sure you didn't steal from your parents like change , or took money from your parent's wallet? by using their credit cards without their knowledge? Eat their food and feed it to all your drunkard friends? Do you think that there's no thieves in UK?
