All true....best written analysis! Give the country a few years and Metro Manila and its neighbouring towns and provinces will just vanish on the face of the earth. Floods are man made and caused by filthy ignorant slipshod uncaring thoughtless people.

The increase of squatters and people from the provinces also increases the amount of thrash which clogs the sewers continuesly. Negligence of our Department of Sanitation and the local government also contributes to the causes of the flooding all over. Expenditures for it are being drained by crooks in our government.

IT IS OUR HOPE AND PRAYER THAT THE PRESIDENT'S TALK ABOUT THE aBOLISHING OF PORKbARREL IS TRUE AND SAID WITH HIS HEART. We are so tired of hearing talks and untruth that we are always suspicious of every news about Pork. AS I always have said, this is his chance for Greatness now. Pray no Edsa will follow this March ! When People are angry, they are capable of anything. Let us be calm this time and wait.

There is more than just the Pork Barrel which has to be done now.... the prosecution of all who were involved in the GREAT SCAM must come soon before they all escape from the clutches of the law and the People. THERE ARE OTHER OPTIONS IF THIS IS NOT HEEDED. BEGIN THE INVESTIGATION OF THE "BIG FISHES" FIRST.

Manila will never solve the flooding unless the needy are not given the chance to start a new life with the money meant for them that is taken away by most Government officials. They are forced to come to the city least they die of starvation out in the provinces. Squatters will soon occupy all empty spaces unless our President stops the corruption in most Government offices like Congress and the Senate to start with. As squatters increase, so does garbage and thrash which naturally clogs all waterways and causes a flood to become bigger and bigger. Common sense can tell you that Mr. Expert..

Floods are now everywhere in the Philippines like what happened to Cavite abd yet is is not a populated city. It Ckimate Change why there are more floods that caused more rain which will get worse in the future.

50 years before in was only category 3 storms in the Philippines but today there are already category 5 storms and 50 years from now there might be category 7 storms.

Except for our new President and an economy that holds a promise, plus the rapidly changing skyline of Manila and invirons, the people have not change much and also the people in Government. Governance has change a little while left over crooks from the last regime are still around. We are now experiencing the consequence of a divided administration which is continually being muddled by the opposition from the past administration who are rich with ill-gotten wealth. Each with a dark past and each pointing at each other for cheating and stealing peoples money.
WE ARE OVERPOPULATED WITH CROOKS ! ABOLISH Pork ! Abolish Congress !///////

After all is said and done,..we Filipinos especially those who have gone to school, to quit saying that all is lost and hopeless. All these trials are made purposely by an all knowing God who stands by waiting for us to pray and ask his intercession, let us not call upon him as a last resort only, but right now when our minds have been brain wash by Money and the Devil. Love is what is missing among us,...only HATE has taken over. God created all things and God can also destroy all things, remember that. _

Filipinos and much of the world today has acquired the thought that Money is everything. that money has to be earned "by hook or by crook".Honestly or dishonestly, does not mean much today for many of us. We are all so busy thinking only of this one thing,..How to get Rich"! It can be read in most Newspapers now there are so many former dignified and highly esteemed personalities are being charged or accused of immorality and dishonesty. Is the end of the world near ? Or is it here already ? God does not exist to many people these days, they only trust in Money. How about you, buddy ?
