Why BBL must be rejected: 1) It heavily favors Malaysia-backed terror group Moro Islamic Liberation Front and ignores the rights of Lumads, Christians, MNLF and other Muslim groups that do not want to be governed by Moro Islamic Liberation Front. 2) Under the BBL agreement, the Philippine government will give Bangsamoro P26 billion in six years of block payments, yet the PNP, COA, CHR, Comelec and Civil Service will not have authority in Bangsamoro. 3) Bangsamoro can annex any nearby province with a simple petition of 10 percent of the inhabitants of the area.

Never give up Mindanao! Don't give Mindanao away! Despite numerous treaties of peace, accord or what kind in the past, we need not bow to the dreams, aspirations, and wishes of our elite Muslim brothers influenced by other powerful Islamic countries. We need to assimilate our Muslim brothers to our present way of life, democratic system of government, rules of law, and respect of human rights. We need to develop Mindanao - inflow of investment, job opportunities, migration of Christians to the South, etc.

The main goal: Vast success or total failure but it seems that the Moro Islamic Liberation Front camp is following their own protocols or procedures in their submission of the Mamasapano Report (90% complete?) but then, only to submit it to the Malaysian representatives or to a favored 3rd party. Why & under whose authority are the Moro Islamic Liberation Front subscribing to? Likewise, why is Iqbal using an alias & under whose authority are the Moro Islamic Liberation Front subject to. Our govt panel or the Malaysian? It's odd & for all we know we might be receiving a water-down version or a generic report favorable only to the Muslim brothers (or are they still Filipinos or actual Malaysians in disguise) Let's wake up. It's either they deal directly with our govt & nobody else. There must be no middle ground. Take it or quit.

It took Catholic Spain 700 years to expel ISLAM from the Iberian Peninsula. The Catholic Philippines has been at war on and off for almost 200 years with ISLAM in Mindanao so we have at least 500 more years to expel ISLAM from Mindanao and drive them off to Malaysia!

[Someone]: The fear that if BBL if not approved by Congress the country would be denied access to crude oil produced from the Middle East is pure nonsense. This peace agreement is not an instrument against Islam.

Everyone has to understand that Christians from Luzon and Visayas populated Mindanao. Vast tract of lands ended up being owned by Christians. In the process, Muslims got marginalized. They don't send their children to public schools but to private schools or Madrasah. These children ended more ignorant than ever with no employable skills. The Muslim women we see in Virra Mall in Greenhills or elsewhere in Luzon are the Maranaos. The chosen political leaders of the Muslims in Mindanao did not help improve their lives. They were more corrupt than their Christian counterparts. Just look at the Ampatuans and Mismuari.

In Christianity, there are conflicting beliefs between the Catholics and Conservative Protestants. Why do you think the Pilgrims of Mayflower were Protestants? Because Protestants thought they were being persecuted by Catholics and the Monarchy (the Church is more powerful than the government represented by the Monarchy), that's why they insist the Separation of Church/Religion and the Government in the U.S. Constitution. But they don't kill flagrantly each other. Whereas in Islam, the 2 Branches (Shiite and Sunni) which you can be sure represented in the Bangsamoro population in RP, can not be at peace with each other because their separation is so extreme, therefore there will be no peace the BBL will achieve. First, eliminate each other Sunni or Shiite then next RP.

BTW, for what this explanation is worth, in my previous entry I included Filipinos as occupier it is because Moro Islamic Liberation Front, BIFF may be considering it, too. Check this out: If this knowledge which I learned from the Muslims themselves when I was a child, still holds true until today that "they (Philippine Muslims) are not Filipinos" indeed there will be no peace with BBL. There will always be war between Filipinos vs Muslims as long as Filipinos (you occupiers!) are still in Mindanao! BTW, how I come to know that Muslims claimed they are not Filipinos? When I was in 3rd grade our school was next to a Mosque. I noticed they were flying the crescent moon and star emblem not the PH flag, so I asked. Their answer was "dili man kami Pilipino".

You bet! there will be no lasting peace with BBL. There is no guarantee that the respective branches of Islam in PH (Shiite and Sunni) will not purge each other. Then the original aim, LIBERATION, is next. In Moro Islamic Liberation Front, "L" stands for Liberation, in BIFF, 1st "F" stands for Freedom. Liberation, Freedom from what, where? The obviousity should have been obvious to moderate Muslims and non-Muslims (Christians, Jews, Buddhist etc.). The Moro Islamic Liberation Front and BIFF want to "liberate" parts if not all of Mindanao which they considered ancestral homeland "occupied" by Spaniards then Americans then Filipinos. So the Muslims will not rest in glory with the BBL until Mindanao or part of it is "liberated".

Lighter side of life- Bruno was a murderous kumag. Finally he was caught, tried and sentenced to death by electrocution (electric chair). Being wais, he started practicing because he heard that if one survived by first try he will be freed. He started with 1000 volt up to 100,000 volt and survived it in his practice. For the meantime, the Supreme Court of Pinas declared electrocution as a cruel and unusual punishment therefore unconstitutional. But the justice department (after attempted cashunduan of Kumag) is bent to carry the death sentence. So on the day of execution, the Court announced to Bruno: "Bruno you have to die but instead of electrocution, you will be executed by drowning".

Jejomar Binay, the Godfather of Kickbacks, said he was flying to Indonesia to plead for the life of the Filipina who was due to be executed for running drugs. Who's this guy kidding? He is going to Indonesia to look for some properties to buy! He is probably thinking of moving his Hacienda there. Imagine a big time thief like this jetting all over the world with impunity and using Filipinos as excuses.

The problem with uneducated illiterates like [someone] is that they get easily intimidated by educated, well spoken people. These illiterates have a very limited vocabulary & when they try to put their thoughts in writing they only make themselves look atrocious. This is the one problem the PIMP is finding hard to deal with. How NOT to feel inferior to educated Filipinos. Try as he might no amount of denigration or insult could put the Filipino down. The filipino would always come out superior to him. His limited mind just does not get it. He is uneducated. Therefore, he is inferior.

Ang Pilipinas ay para ng ginigisa sa sariling mantika. Pinayaman ng mga Pilipino ang mga Instik tapos ngayon ang mga tunay na Pilipino ang napapagkaitan sa sariling lupa. Kapag Pilipino ang bibili tutumbasan ng instik ng mas malaking halaga kaya sila ang nakakabili. Marami ang natutuwa pag nagpapatayo ng SM sa mga ibat-ibang lugar pero epekto, yong may mga business na mga pilipino sa malalapit ay humihina na. Sana tigilan na ng ating gobyerno ang pagapprove sa mga kagustuhan ng mga instik ng mga Malls. Baka dumating na ang panahon na sila na nga maghari sa Pilipinas.... gaya na nga ng ginagawa nilang pagangkin sa Spratly. Wala naman na tayong Andres Bonifacio at mga kaanib na pwede silang tagain. kawawang bansa, lulukuban ng mga tsinong tuso.

In the news: "The U.S. Won't Defend PH Against China". Not in the Spratleys anyway. The obviousity is as clear as mud; the territory is not in the land that the U.S. gave it's independence almost 70 years ago. The U.S. does not condone squatting or land-grabbing. But if the armed conflict reaches the mainland PH then that's another story.

Ex SC CJ Reynato Puno made a statement that "Darkness is threatening PHL democracy". He pointed out that the income inequality has worsened with only 100 Families out of 17 Million families dominating the country's political & economic life. I don't know about you but "threatening" is not the word I would use. I think the PHL HAS BEEN STAYING TOTAL DARKNESS for the past 20 years, at least. Every attempt to light a candle is stifled with cynicism & passivity. Maybe the Filipinos should just allow Democracy to die a natural death & experiment with some other form of govt. The trouble with intellectuals like Puno is that they could not see beyond their doctrines & theories. Practicality & reality somehow get lost in the shuffle.

[Someone] posted to PNL that, "He would STOP Posting or have him banned from Posting if he was not telling the truth about his allegations that there was this Japanese who had sex with 12,000 young girls in the PHL". And that he was "WAITING". OK, WAIT NO MORE. A blogger (Marumi Itoh) posted that this whole thing happened IN NAKAGAWA, JAPAN & it did not involve any Filipinos. So there. YOU were caught LYING red handed. If ever I see you post comments in this Forum again then you will just have proven that YOU ARE A BORN LIAR & by nature SHAMELESS. What are you doing in the PHL?

From now on I will post twice as much as your blogs & ridicule you & expose you for being the UNEDUCATED misfit that you are. The more you badmouth Filipinos the more your will hear from me. And remember YOU WERE CAUGHT LYING. You are no longer supposed to post comments in this Forum.

Sabi ni M. Makiling- " Sana magkaroon na tayo ng Filipino First Policy. Kahit pa sila nag-offer, i-priority Pilipino. Hindi tayo dapat magmukhang pera." LOL!!! Wakanga! Where have you been !!Nagkaroon na tayo ng "Filipino First policy" noong pang kapanahunan ni Garcia--at ang nangyari ay "Filipino first" nga sa katarantaduhan , pang-ngungurakot at pangdadaya sa kaban ng bayan, pagpatakbo sa gubyerno at bilangan sa eleksion ----hanggang ngayon!!

May nagsabi - "Ang mga Chinese kapag may bibilihing mga lupa, hindi makabili ang Pilipino dahil nagoofer sila ng mas mataas na halaga." LOL!! Ekyus me-- that is free market capitalist enterprise system hija!! Why blame the Chinese for offering a good and high price? You should blame the Filipino sellers for accepting the higher price and not selling to the Filipinos for a lower price!!!

It is foolish on the part of Binay to be invoking the Aguinaldo Doctrine as defense. Here is my take : (1) during Binay's re-election he had acquired tremendous wealth the manner of how this wealth was acquired illegally were never known to them. Had they had known, voters would have have rejected Binay. (2) Binay's guilt was never resolved before his re-election. (3) elections are always bought if the price is right. We could not use the dictum: "voz populi, voz dei" because of voters' ignorance. Sereno was right on. The doctrine is often misused and abused.

This Japanese idiot who claims to have fucked 12,000 girls must be super man with a super pen*s. Do the math we have only 24 hours per day 8 hour is spent sleeping 1 hour is spent defecating. If the claim of this idiot has a semblance of truth he must have an erection more or less 12 hours per day! Solomon had only 8,000 females more or less under his control!

I've been thinking about this China thing and what can we do about it. OK here goes. During this military exercise have one of the Filipino troop let loose a rocket and kill a few Chinese troops. This way the Americans will be involved. China starts shooting back and before you know it BANG. Uncle Sam is knee deep in your sh^t. But it has to be done soon. Only a few days left.

Re: President Binay....Assuming he takes his oath as Pres in 2016, I predict that it wont be long before he is removed by another EDSA type recall/removal of an elected President..Binay is facing right now countless issues of Violation of the Anti Graft Practices Act .RA 3019. With all those pending cases if he is elected Pres. , the SC would apply that Aguinaldo Precedent case where basically what its say is yes he is a crook he violated Anti graft laws but considering his election, he has been pardoned or acquitted by the Voters. There is no longer a black and white definition of a thief..The P.I. would continue to have a poverty problem which would erupt into more unrest and instability. If that doesn't lead to a violent revolution to remove an incumbent, I really don't know what will.

There Will Never be Lasting Peace with the Bangasamoro Basic Law

It is incomprehensible to many that despite all the negatives piling up against it, the Aquino administration is still pushing for Congress to ratify the Bangasamoro Basic Law (BBL). First and foremost, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front with whom the Philippine government entered into an agreement with, massacred 44 Special Action Force (SAF) policemen who were serving an arrest warrant on an international terrorist.

Is Manny Pacquiao Giving Floyd Mayweather an Unfair Advantage?

Doctor Expedito Castillo, a retired internist with training in sports medicine thinks so. Castillo who lives in New York points out that Los Angeles—where Manny Pacquiao now trains for his May 2nd fight, and Las Vegas—where Floyd Mayweather trains and where the boxing match will take place, have enormous differences in terms of elevation. Los Angeles is just 233 feet above sea-level, while Las Vegas is a whopping 2,000 feet above sea-level. 33. Published 4/11/2015
Just When You Thought Filipino Cops Were the Worst, Here Come US Cops

What in the world has happened to cops in the United States? It seems that today only psychotic, unstable, individuals are joining the U.S. police force this days. People from all across the globe were more than willing to give American cops the benefit of the doubt, at first. But in instance after instance, from Ferguson, MS and the killing of Michael Brown, a young black man who witnesses say was unarmed and posed no threat at all to police; to today’s cold-blooded murder of Walter F. Scott, 50 by South Carolina police officer Michael T. Slager, 33. Published 4/7/2015
NPA Celebrates 46 Years of Destroying the Philippines

Founded by Bernabe Buscayno, or “Kumander Dante” as he was more commonly known, the New People’s Army established on March 29, 1969 marks its 46th year of existence. From less than 40 founding members and a handful of firearms, the NPA grew to over 26,000 members in the 1980s. Today however the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) places NPA membership at less than 5,000 nationwide. That number is expected to dwindle even further as progress and education creep in to the far-flung towns and barrios that were once breeding grounds for recruits. Published 3/30/2015
Lee Kuan Yew and Ferdinand Marcos, What a Difference!

An Australian living in the Philippines published a book titled: “The Unlucky Country. The Republic of the Philippines in the 21st Century.” The author Duncan McKenzie came up with the title as the counterpoint to “The Lucky Country” a book written in the mid-sixties that refers to Australia. In his book McKenzie explains that the Philippines is unlucky because, for starters, it is an archipelago and therefore naturally fragmented. Published 3/17/2015
Will the Philippines Ever Speed Up Its Glacially-Slow Justice System?

We’ve all heard the saying “justice delayed is justice denied.” That maxim has been around since time immemorial. In fact the Pirkei Avot (Hebrew for “Ethics of the Fathers”) which dates back to the 1st century B.C. mentions an old rabbi saying that goes: “the sword comes into the world, because of justice delayed and justice denied." In 1215 A.D. a clause from the Magna Carta similarly declares that “to no one will we refuse or delay, right or justice." Published 3/17/2015
Amal Alamuddin Clooney Wants to Defend Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo ...Why?

Okay so she's George Clooney's wife, she's got great looks, a law degree and ambitious enough to make a name for herself apart from that of her superstar husband. Fair enough. So Amal Alamuddin Clooney decides to take on high profile cases of injustice around the world. Even better. But filing a complaint with the United Nations Human Rights Council on behalf of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo? What's up with that? Better do your homework Mrs. Clooney.

Manny Pacquiao Should Not Be Given a Tax Exemption

Senator Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III has proposed a bill to grant Manny Pacquiao a special tax exemption for the income he will earn from his May 2nd boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Pimentel justifies his bill as a "fitting tribute" to the Filipino eight-division world champion adding that "Manny is now part of our history and of world sports history. Let’s give him this tax incentive in recognition to his invaluable efforts to promote boxing and the country around the world." Published 3/4/2015
With Negotiators Like These on Our Team, Who Needs an Opposing Side?

What on earth happened to these two women—supposedly  handpicked by the president himself to argue on behalf of the Philippine government in peace negotiations with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front—who now seem to be mouthpieces for the Moros? Have Secretary Teresita Deles, Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process and Professor Miriam Coronel-Ferrer, chair of the negotiating panel become mesmerized by the tough "macho" image the rebels project?
