Sorry, just can't pull money out my ano like u Sweed's do. Not everyone born with silver spoon in their mouth. You guys just sit back and watch any way, like in Hitlers day. Isn't that where the NPA's leader is sitting it out living high on the hog while his commrads extort money out of family's ?

Yes oh so so concerned and really really angry about their pristine reef when THEY have destroyed 90% of their reefs and just oh so concerned of the garbage that is everywhere.

I bet these same Flips raising hell throw their garbage all over of the place. Never hear a word of how they have turned their country into a garbage dump why that would put blame on them.

Need to catch a few American sailors tossing a beer bottle so they can blame all their garbage problems on us and want money to "clean up our mess"!!!LOL!!!

Exactly my point, they ruin just about everything and all of the sudden they become so concerned about this f-ing reef when before the accident they were turning it into a dump yard like what they usually do.

The funny things is pinoys actually believe all the junk they read/hear. I can bet that 1.4m is going to someone else pocket.

that 1.4 mil is peanuts when you consider that the local politicians and enviro agents were screaming for up to 96mil. no doubt they had some great parties planned thinking the US was going to be bent over the table for this situation.

id love to hear their conversations.:)

noynoy had the last word. im certain he told them all to stfu and leave our ally alone. no reports have come out about any of their reactions. hahahahahaha

I met plenty of good ones here. When you can't even relax on a beach without being surrounded by garbage or harassed by vendors it wears on you. When people won't even screen their windows and doors then come to me for money when they have a kid with dengue you wonder how long will it take for these people to wise up.

Well they don't wise up, ever.

You, I, or Don know what we have seen and experienced .... so we tell it. Had we been "officially assigned by the US Government" we would not be allowed to tell it.

Oh! Is that a fact? I suppose you think the rest of us here on Topix are either experts or officially assigned authorities to our respective government agencies? No "personal opinions" from us, eh?

If you believe everything that comes out of a politicians mouth your in serious trouble. Begging, stealing and lies is the only thing I get from here.
You're correct, I never believed everything that comes out from your mouth, worse than a politician.

Begging, stealing and lies are your common denominators...unbelievable, but at least you have followers like AMC, GB, xyz....

Oh no, you're so flopping and run out of logical argument so you lose ground and resort attacking my person. Not nice and you're accepting you're a "loser" loser.

Many of us live here, we don't talk from 10,000 miles away but live in and experience what we say. Alot can bounce off me because I have money and just leave but for those I care for Filipino's stuck even what they call hell don't have a voice.

The worse is those that got out of hell and lie about it through Filipino false pride. One thing you can never get away from is it must be hell if so many are trying to get out either through marriage, maids petitioning China to stay to millions of OFW's.

Hell even their college is aimed at getting some kind of degree that would get them out.

18 yrs ago I thought my kids go do some schooling there, but returning and seeing punji sticks along sidewalks and outside of peoples block walls with broken concrete made me change mind.
Neighbor lady going back talks of how well off her family are, but while she was sick, and didn't really need going back to work so soon, the family was still asking for donations. Seen her family on FB, could see paint on walls, more like white wash, could see cracks in block work.

What lady is asking for house is outragous, only land is worth.
House falling apart, built before plumbing and no crawl space under. Bank won't loan money without termite inspection.
All Stateside whiners should go back.

Like the Cruse Ship degrees. Maybe they can get on the Poop Ship Carnival.

Sweden I think can go either way, if have the money. Isn't that where Russia had submarine base leased at calling it a coal mine ? Never been to Europe, don't plan to go.

Don't burden yourself of the problem of people ...blame your own false pride of non stop whinning about the Filipinos. Remember, you have no right to whine about them as long as you're not feeding them. You might share a peso or more to a beggar, but you add with too much insults....is so making your false pride.

Everybody goes to college to get a degree to get better paying job later on and to reach out to the needy (hopefully). Seems you're already mixed up talking hell with a college degree.
