Why was my comment not accepted ? Are you afraid to print the truth ? Is there a censorship on it ? Long Live the Supreme Court. Away with crooks !

Truly , God has lost his patience with Politicians. He has definitely changed the minds of the SC members to favor the People where even the President is helpless. I voted for P'Noy, but just recently I begun to doubt his actions. He has become another Politician that loves himself more than the people who voted him in. While man is man, nobody must be impowered to use our National Funds for his own intentions. Money has not failed yet in turning a good person into a money hungry monster. Remember Marcos, Enrile, Revilla and Estrada and all who made us beleive that they were saintly in every way. now they have shown their colors,....Thieves in disguise, pala. All along, this persons knew it was illegal , but they kept right on for decades.

The Super Typhoon was a divine sign that has shown all that our country was headed the wrong way by the wrong people. Money talk was everywhere",...at the dinner table, at parties, in Congress and the Senate and just about everywhere. Like death, calamities heppens when you least expect it, and so it did. Many nations now realize that devastations like this can hit them too and only then will mankind feel that they need each other. Love"...is reborn Now we see that concern for each other is still alive and well. Others may look upon this as a curse but it is not, it is just God's way of "spanking us,...his beloved children. Let us all thank him for that.

Our country is still in mourning for the thousands who have lost their lives and their belongings to the most devastating typhoon ever to hit our nation. Let us now show our gratitude to our God for changing the minds full of hate to that which shows love for all as other Nations have rellied to our aid in this disaster. Help one another !

Politicians"....keep your dirty hands off the distribution of relief items. The Red Cross is doing well enough without your help. Only a few of you have this far shown great willingness to help anybody but yourselves. Until the reforms has succeeded in cleaning the bad ones off our country, the people have no trust left for most of you. I still count the good ones with my fingers, they are so few.
