Bravo to the "heroes of Sierra Madre." This issue open up the realities why the Chinese become so strongly determined to grab the Spratly Islands or the Ayungin Shoal. Evidently the seeds and roots start from the greed for money and power during the administration of Erap Estrada and Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's program of Joint Seismic Exploration Agreement for Natural Gas, Petroleum and precious minerals with China. The Chinese find that with Estrada and GMA the PHL is easy prey to manipulate and exploit for their own benefit.

From previous provocative actions by the Chinese, it appears that a dog's bark often might be worse than its bite. This hostile attitude is combination of intimidation, threats, bellicosity, or just blowing of hot air. What might be perceived as a weakness by our gov't might instead be our own strength...with just a handful of brave soldiers manning a rusting vessel in the middle of the sea. As suggested, paint it blue, white, & red & let the world see our colors & let international law prevail. Screw the Chinese.

I agree with the sentiment alluded by this article. China would certainly be interested in grabbing these offshore islands as easy as taking candy from a kid. But it needs a more corruptible and weak-minded Philippine government. So what it's doing now is intimidate and bully the current leadership while waiting for the next Philippine election and a change of leadership. She knows that there are many corrupt politicians in the country and it's easier to influence them than going against a maelstrom of sympathetic governments in United States and Asia.

Whatever China wants China gets. What it cannot get it will occupy indefinitely, regardless of what maps, treaties, agreements or history say. The only way to stop this nation from throwing its weigh around is to threaten its economy or military or both. Countries that are being intruded by these Chinese can discuss and argue the legalities of their ownership and sovereignty over the occupied lands until they are blue in the face but that would not stop China. Woe to the world when Globalization and Open Trade was declared by the West. They gave China untold wealth and unbridled power to grab its neighbor's territories. It's too late to stop it now without risking global conflagration.

Re: territorial dispute: The Philippines is involved in a territorial dispute with the PRC (People's Republic of China)..The PRC insists that the dispute should be settled bilaterally between the PI & the PRC, however, the Philippines prefers the UNCLOS. a United Nation agency.. The PI is at a disadvantage if we agree bilaterally.. the better alternative is the UNCLOS. The Chinese has the upper hand because they are a giant compared with the PI..So there appears to be a standoff.

Thanks to PNL for finally replacing that despicable web page of Gloria Arroyo in neck braces. The worst page I have seen that prays something bad to happen to an accused but not proven guilty person. Finally the hatred propaganda was replaced by something that makes more sense. The Chinese occupation of some Philippine territory. That is the more fitting subject for days to come.

China might try to adopt an annexation style similar to what they did in Ukraine by attempting to incite Chinese groups living in the Philippines. But she is in for a surprise as most Filipinos have Chinese bloods and the full-blooded Chinese are closely linked and associated with the country in hearts and minds and wouldn't dream of aligning with a country which is foreign to them. Furthermore, the Philippines is a multi-ethnic country closely associated with other Asian and Western countries and while they grumbled and sanctioned Russia in Ukraine they may not be tolerant with China's incursion or disruption in the Philippines.

The new editorial about the disputed islands got me angry about the Chinese. They are the bully on the block. You editorial got me thinking what can be done to stop the Chinese. And than it struck me, you Filipinos are doing to little or nothing. PNL you folks are Americans, FilAms. You young folks love the Philippines where as the people living here could care less. Some of course have more pressing things to do other than think about islands 100s of miles away. Like surviving the daily BS here.

[Someone]: You always invoke the UNCLOS when it come to Spratlys case of Pinas. Firstly UNCLOS is unenforceable that's why the U.S. didn't even sign up with it. Secondly, Spratlys is a toss up between several countries, so whether you agree with the UN or not, the other countries' claim is as good as Pinas'. In other words, no clear owner(s) of the Spratlys, that's why some countries are poised to grab with by force. Shirley, UN would like to hear about it from the protagonists, but one (particularly the insect) don't want it because by agreeing for the UN to hear it cheapened their "historical" claim to the Spratlys.

If not for the US these islands would already be in the hands of the Chinese. Someone can thank those dime a dozen servicemen. My feeling on these islands is that even though they do not belong to China, China should have them because if you folks get them who will benefit? Only the rich. Nothing will filter down to the poor. Your ruling families will just get richer and richer.

When this Crook got away with the "Hello Garci" fiasco despite overwhelming evidence of guilt, she must have realized how weak the Filipino character is. Filipinos usually make a lot of noise about appalling, terrible crimes. Then they go to sleep and forget about it. Why? It's just in their nature. So Gloria Arroyo was emboldened by this character flaw and invigorated by the support of the greedy Bishops….until Aquino came. So here we are confronting this Thief with her crimes. It is now up to the Judiciary to unleash justice and let this criminal, and hopefully her family rot in jail.

Ex-President Arroyo or her husband has been linked to several corrupt activities while she was in office but none has been resolved yet. There is a lingering fear that the judicial process will drag on and be at the mercy of a highly questionable and inefficient process. It is the utmost hope of the people that authorities will be cognizant of this problem and reform the process, curtailing dilatory procedure, limiting or prioritizing evidence as to preponderance and probability. In other words, start with a clear case where the chance of winning is strong.

Like two or three PNL posters, my first impression on GMA’s first half of her 1st year as PGMA was covered with whatever treacherous ways that she did to hide her true intentions. Before the end of her 2nd yr as PGMA her plan was clear. Tulad labandera, she wanted to squeeze every drop of water known as wealth or money until Pinas is practically dry. Sobrang piniga niya ang kanyang labada, (ang Pinas). NBN ZTE, Brown Bags, kickback from oil and gas contract with China etc made PGMA’s presidency “the heaviest borrower among all post EDSA presidents” The number of human rights victims and the mysterious disappearance of political foe during the time of F Marcos remains a legacy that keeps Marcos on top as the worst president in Pinas.

A blogger wrote that we are convicting Gloria Arroyo without evidence. In a perfect world that would make sense but not in the PHL. In this country "Law is always the refuge of Scoundrels". And Gloria Arroyo and her entire family are all big scoundrels. They could and would use their billions to twist the law to their liking and advantage. And Filipinos would never see justice. And wouldn't you know it? If that happens the very people in this forum criticizing the "rush to judgement" we are making will now complain that the administration of justice is "too slow".

The string of corruption cases alluded to former President Arroyo is followed with extreme interest by the Filipinos. It is by far the highest profiled allegation pursued by the Aquino administration and its success or failure is a measure of the President's much vaunted drive against the culture of corruption that has plagued the country for years.

We might be Filipinos at heart but there is always a stronger undercurrent of clannish mentality based on a common link to geography, dialect and custom. This mentality tends to affect national sentiment and thus would have to be overcome if the culture of corruption has to be won nationally. Even if former President Gloria is convicted there will always be Filipinos who can't be swayed. The same loyalty was bestowed with the Marcos family. Despite the clear evidence of their crime and the national sentiment against them, they remain in high esteem by others.

So many posters want a suspect to be declared "convicted" first before found guilty by a court of law. I think this thinking is not rational. What if this situation is reversed? And it does happen. Will they agree? We all know how bad politics in the country. Once you're out of office, media will feast on all your mistakes and boboos. But whose perfect in this day and ages? I would say, if a person has no strong evidence presented against him/her in court, set the person free on bail.

SOMEONE: The Sandiganbayan does not hate Aquino that's why the hold up of the prosecution of Arroyo. Check this out: Shirley, they can condemn Arroyo, if they want to, based on the evidence they got. But the hold up of the prosecution is "can they dare "pasagasaan" powerful people? That's why, they are "thinking it over" yet. What about Estrada's (president Joseph)? They prosecuted him, right? The case of Estrada is different; "nabasa na rin lang sila, eh di maligo na"! But then you know the results, right? And of course aside from they won't dare "pasagasaan" this powerful people, who will prosecute them when just hearing the names of their accused's legal counsels, eh "nanginginig" na agad sila (the prosecutors).

SOMEONE: My comment to most postings is that the case Arroyo has been prejudged. Because the wheels of justice grinds to slow, people are quick to make their verdict of "guilty on all counts." They assume the role of impatient jurors in the court of public opinion. Being indicted of one or 26 plunder charges (A - Z in the alphabet) does not make the guilt of Gloria graver than ever.

Most of the opinions expressed in this forum are personal feelings of " guilty as hell " against Gloria Arroyo. Seldom do we give Gloria the benefit of the doubt or in legal term the presumption of innocence. The prayer " ... spend the rest of her life behind bar " is a strong statement of guilt. What evidence do you have that she is guilty? It is all emotion based.

Most are quick to condemn Gloria including the three senators linked to Janet Napoles. Those are ahead of the court in the case of Gloria and Ombudsman or Senate Blue Ribbon Committee's recommendation to indict in the case of Enrile, Estrada and Revilla. We always see this behavior among Filipinos of being too judgmental when they make their opinions known in a political forum such as this one. Rarely do I find a NO MAN but preponderance of YES MAN in responding to PNL's editorial opinion. They do not want to offend the editor(s). Hidden fear of retribution or vengeance? Or too polite perhaps?

I started voting from the time of president Carlos P Garcia. Every president had some negative performance and transactions (at different levels) through the eyes of the public. Would it would be fair and impartial lessons learned if we cover everybody and not just one president so it will not look vindictive and not too personal?

I'm not sure but I would bet that Gloria has asked for forgiveness from our Savior. What I am sure of is that Jesus forgave her. So what the hell, I forgive her too. It's holy week for Christ's sakes. We forgave Earp and the Marcos clan and hundreds more. So why single out Gloria. Listen bury your hate. Forgive so this way you won't be disappointed when she walks free.

Still, many posters adhere to the axiom of the law "...an accuse is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty" by a Court of law. The truth is, "he/she is presumed guilty until he/she can proved her innocence in the Court of law". You need proof? Check this out: Who argues the case FIRST before the Jury or Judge? The prosecution! He/she is already condemned for the allege crime(s) by the prosecution unless he/she can prove the contrary. That's in most real democratic countries. Of course in the Philippines its a toss-up. Ah, you know what I mean.

According to an ABNOY devotee the plunder case against AQUINO won't move forward, "You know the Pnoy is very popular with the Filipino voters." MY TAKE: REALLY? Have you ever seen an effigy of a balding man from the Palace being set to fire every time there is a protest vs. DAP? Anyway Mr. Devotee, justice is NOT about POPULARITY. It is about fairplay and what is just for the most number of people, especially the taxpayers. Where's your edol's battle cry 'tuwid na daan' which you hypo-critically so believe in?

Malaysian airlines cannot be found. Is there the possibility. that the airplane was met by UFO? That's why the disappearance was mysterious? Maybe UFO will land one day and appear to us and Aisi will again blame PNoy why he became too small (ET). This is what I have in mind.

In the news: "Customs Scrapped Forms For Passengers [Arriving] With Nothing to Declare". In Pinas, this will not work! The "green" line (nothing to declare) will be overwhelmed. Sa ngayon nga eh, buong bahay na iyong inuuwi ng Pinoy, eh, "nothing to declare" pa rin, ngayon pa! There was a time a Pinoy bring home a used "cheding" he has nothing to declare, so he said. The last time, we went home, the line for "seniors" was crowded with young Pinoys. Mga unruly pa naman. Baka akala ng mga saragate, "senior" sila dahil sa mayroon silang anak na "junior" as in Jose Rizal, Sr./Jose Rizal, Jr. It's true (although the man tried to "humor" me). Now you hate Edwards for postings a situation such as this?.

Tayong mga Pilipino kahit saan tayo pupunta, lalo na sa ibang bansa, magbihis naman tayo ng maayos para hindi tayo hinahamak. At kung tayo ay magsisimba lagi ring the best dress for the Lord. Ipakita nating maayos, malinis magdamit para ang epekto rin sa bansa ay maganda at hindi laging mahirap, madumi ang bansa. Kung makikita natin, ang daming naka-auto ng maganda sa ating bansa, magagandang bahay, puno ang mga shopping mall, kaya huag nating paniniwalaan na sobra pa ring naghihirap ang bansa...gaya ng sinasabi ni AsISee it pero walang mata at tenga. Marami lang ang tamad. Puros reklamo at mayroong gusto na lang magpalimos, kumalabit at ipakita ang palad.

Kelangan siguro magkaroon ng batas na hindi pwede pumasok na opisyal ng gobyerno ang mga hindi napapakinabangan sa gobyerno kundi sumahod ng pera gaya ni Pacquiao. Magkaroon na lang karangalan sa bansa pero ang dapat na ipasahod sa kanya na walang attendance ay sa pondo na lang ng mahihirap. At sana graduate naman ng college. Kaya nga hirap na hirap na maiangat ang Pilipinas ay pinapayagan ang gaya ni Pacquiao at Jinky na dapat sila na mismo ang umaayaw kung may delikadesa.

In the news: "Philippines Still 3rd In The List Of Unsolved Media Killings".The Pinas press still underestimates the corruption in Pinas, especially in the field of assassination. Even if the assassin(s) is caught, one word from interceding senatong or tongressman (who may be are the "utak") "officer, 'ibalato' mo na siya sa akin, may pamilya din iyan", nanginginig pa tsaka sasaludo ang parak "yes, sir "senatong" (or "tongressman"). Case closed. As I have been posted here, when our SUV driver was pulled over in Pinas, I just looked at the parak and said "ibalato mo na siya sa akin". "Yes sir", and he saluted mo. If a balikbayan is that "persuasive" what more a tongress people?

Re. Former City Manager of Bell (a suburb of Los Angeles with a population of 40,000) Mr. Rizzo was sentenced to 12 years in prison.. in the State of California Rizzo would be out about 6 years from now. He embezzled about $9 million US dollars. He gave himself a salary of $1.5 million .. This was discovered because of the snooping of a Los Angeles Times reporter. The Asst city Manger was sentenced 11 years. Rizzo in addition to his 12 year was also convicted by the Feds for tax evasion he will serve 33 months This happened in 2010. a little over 3 years.

Manila has the worst airport in the world according to travel guides. Really. I guess there will be some on this site telling us about other airports in other countries just as bad. In the report it said that the Manila airport is infested with crooks, dishonest airport workers. Welcome to the Philippines. And to think they charge you 600 peso tax to use the damn place. Let me guess where that money goes.

May mga opisyal na balasubas at hindi magrereport s ng kanilang kalokohan. Dapat talaga mag ikot ang leader para makita ng sarli niyang mata. Magaling ang ginawa ni president.

In the news: "Gigi Reyes Back To Face Charges". That is back in the Philippines. She must have been convinced that in spite of the "seriousness" of the charges she can "malulusutan" (borrowing the term used by Revilla) ito. It might as well be true. As I said, who will prosecute her? Ang mga pipitsogin na "abogado" daw (of the govt.) who once they heard the names of their adversaries (abogado de campinilya (daw) that money can buy), nanginginig na kaagad (not only of nervousness but of fear!). I have posted this sad truth a "million" times. You see, when the tax people were asking my boss (in Pinas) for "maboboteng usapan", he balked and mentioned the company's legal retainer to fight them, tiklop agad ang bito-bito nila at karipas ng takbo. Ah, you understand what I mean.

His' is no different from the editorials of PNL and other sector of the "medyas". Prapreho lahat! Even posters have been calling Pinoy voters "stupid", "morons" "uneducated", etc. Edward called Pinoys ["stupidiers" moroniers" etc. if there's such terms, mine]. I could have done the same, too, but that would be "rubbing salt to the injury". So what's the difference?

LOVER COME BACK. Speculations abound, from the Government's weak case against the Plunderers to Gigi's complete split and turnaround against lover JPE. If the the Govt's case is weak then Gigi needed not come home because she should have been acquitted wherever she may be. If she completely broke up with JPE it means she'll start singing. Why, all of a sudden? Well, only she could tell. Here are the maybes: JPE is in death's doorstep and Gigi would soon be free to talk, or JPE will sacrifice Gigi and Gigi just will not take it, or Gigi had an attack of conscience (unlikely), or Gigi was promised immunity, or she is another Trojan Horse. Whatever it is the case had taken new twist by the return of the "other" woman.

Stealing is so deep rooted here in the Philippines that that all you people talk about. The saying , "like a thief in the night", does not apply here. There is no shame. In daylight hours your police and LTO people stop people without helmet. No tickets are given but license plates are removed and the person handed a card with a phone number. They're told to call and told where to go and pickup their plates and to bring 500 to 1000 peso with them. Everyone knows what goes on but no one says anything about it. Why.

Ang Pilipinas ay gaganda ang kapaligiran kung matututo ang bawat pilipino na maglinis ng kanilang kapaligiran. Sa palengke o saan mang public na pamilihan ay dapat nilang ayusin at linisin ang mga pwestong nasasakupan. Huag lahat ipaubaya sa mga janitors para hindi sobrang mahirapan ang mga tagapaglinis. Ang mga karatula na mga nagsabit sa mga tindahan na makikita sa kalye ay dapat namang limitahan sa hanggang 2 lamang at kung lalabis ay taxable na. Nagmumukhang magulo at basurahan ang kapaligiran sa samot samot na kulimpat. Sa papuntang namang airport ay magulo tingnan dahil parang mga squatters na dapat doon ang hitsurang presentable. Siguro doon dapat magtayo ng mga shopping mall ksi malapit sa airport para sa tourists at ng lalong dumami ang pumunta sa ating bansa.

Quo Vades for former President Gloria Arroyo? Where does she go from here and what does she plan to do next? These are the questions lingering in the minds of most Filipinos. She has reached the top of the most coveted spot of power and influence in the country having been elected President. But for some unknown reasons or perhaps for a determined unquenchable thirst for power ran again, but this time in the House of Representatives. If ever found guilty guilty of the crimes she alleged to have committed, her rise and fall will be extremely received as a symbol of the end of the much maligned practice that has affected the country's economy and confidence.

Kaya naman pala umabot ng P2.2 Billion ang deficiency income tax assessment vs Pacquiao LINK 528m because he was assessed based on GROSS INCOME despite the law that as a resident Filipino he shall pay income tax computed based on NET INCOME. What a shame for the BIR to commit this grievous mistake. This is a grave abuse and gross ignorance in the implementation of the law resulted to overstatement of the tax due to overstatement of the tax base. This assessment is not only null and void but it unnecessarily overstated the basis of the filing fee to the Court of Tax Appeals which is damaging to the interest of Pacquiao.

Re:[someone] -- your understanding of the pork barrel is basically correct. But the Premise is that the Congressman or senator is honest.Senator Miriam in the blue ribbon committee said that her pork barrel goes to the province of Iloilo but she said there is a project but I don't interfere on how to spend that allotted money but I have to see that it is done..On the other hand JPE, Jingoy & Bong Revilla they had this pro forma documents, I understand the money is real but the project is bogus/ non-existent. In simple terms sobrang garapal. If these three senators don't spend any significant time behind bars.. then the P.I. would be better off without these senators & Congressmen. Puro tulisan.

To PNL about Bloggers with OBSESSIVE HATRED: In the 2012 Oxford Handbook of Personality Disorders there's a new chapter identifying and assessing "Pathological Bias", an extreme prejudice that could lead those afflicted to say or do horrific things against the object of their hatred persistently. It is a form of mental illness that affects some bloggers here. They need professional help. PNL does their members disservice by continually printing the hateful and obnoxious, irritatingly repetitive comments of these people. They contribute nothing. Instead they generate animosity and spitefulness. They poison and pollute the air in this Forum. No one would miss them if PNL stops printing their loathsome comments.

The Philippines is a dying country and you folk don't even know it. With the crime and corruption and filth everywhere. Slowly mother nature is even destroying everything. Nothing is being built or repaired. I was told once that there is nothing that cannot be fixed. Where do you start to fix the problems in the PI. Of course getting good and honest leaders. Simple yes, but not in the PI. There are no honest people. I believe people have three basic needs except for some. Stealing is a fourth.

Re: The return of Atty. Lucila "Gigi" Reyes.. Not related to the territorial dispute but more interesting.. She was interviewed upon arrival at the airport, and then comes a comment from Sen. Jinggoy that the ex- Chief of Staff of JPE wont testify against JPE.. Sen. Jinggoy you better concentrate on your own defense as you are in a terrible mess. The blue Ribbon Committee will call her and Sen Miriam will interview her during the hearing. She will contradict the pronouncements of JPE's defense lawyer..Sen. Jinggoy you can't possibly predict what Atty Reyes would testify about.

MY RESPONSE: Sir popularity is not a factor in judging whether that person should face trial if the purpose is to serve justice for the Filipino people. A law is a law. And if you are ignorant about this, BONG Revilla who is facing PLUNDER charge is #1 senator in 2010 senatorial election with 19,513,521 votes. I can understand why your logic and mental processes have a lot of errors, and your belief that your most devoted edol cannot be prosecuted of plunder because he is popular is delusional!

Happy Birthday GMA, ‘Hope You Spend the Rest of Your Life Behind Bars

It has been a dizzying drop from the euphoric highs of 2001 when Filipinos forced President Joseph Estrada from office and installed Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in his place. Estrada was widely seen as a corrupt, philandering politician; a high school dropout who was unqualified to be president. Arroyo on the other hand had the pedigree, education, and morals—we all assumed—to handle the job. Published 04/7/2014


Turn Pag-asa Island Into a Tourist Destination! It’s More Fun In Pag-asa

While the Aquino administration has been making many of the right moves lately, such moves remain woefully inadequate given the situation the Philippines faces with China. If President Benigno Aquino III entertains any hope of keeping our islands in the Spratlys, he needs to get off his behind this minute and start building a strong coalition with other nations.

Why Bong Revilla Will Never Become President of the Philippines

A country's president must be a statesman. Someone who is genuinely concerned about the welfare of his people—especially those who have the least in life. A president must also be fair. Fairness after all underpins what justice is all about. Everyone, be they exceedingly wealthy or totally destitute deserves equal treatment under the law. Published 03/22/2014
The Philippines Is Not a Friendly Place To Do Business In

On the surface, the Philippines can seem like an enjoyable and friendly place to do business. But scratch the surface and you’ll find yourself in a strange and alien world where a whole new set of rules and attitudes apply.

To All Those Who Were Part of the EDSA People Power Revolution—Thank You!

On February 25, the Philippines will celebrate the 28th anniversary of the People Power revolution known as EDSA One. For four days in February, 1986, freedom-starved Filipinos amassed on Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA), in front of Camps Crame and Aguinaldo to shield Secretary Juan Ponce Enrile, General Fidel Ramos, and their military supporters from possible assault by forces controlled by the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.

The Arc of the Moral Universe and the Salvador “Bubby” Dacer Case

How long before the people responsible for the Dacer-Corbito murders are brought to justice? The hopeful answer may be found in a speech delivered by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the steps of the Alabama State Capitol on March 25, 1965 when he said: "How long? Not long, because no lie can live forever. How long? Not long, because you shall reap what you sow. How long? Not long, because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice."

Will Ruby Tuason’s Revelations Make a Difference? Remember This Is the Philippines

Another whistleblower Ruby Tuason will soon testify before the Department of Justice, and the Philippine Senate.

Her appearances will likely involve high drama, moving testimony, and bombshell revelations that will be plastered across the front pages of Philippine dailies and reverberate throughout social media.
