since there seems to be a few Filippino folks on here commenting can someone clear something up for me?
what is the correct spelling for the application of the word Philipino?
is it person= Filippino
possesive=Philipino (i.e. Philippino fighting stick)
place= Philippines

i know i could look this up quickly but i would rather have someone who is familiar with the culture help me out.

To say any violence against someone for what they is against every right Americans have fought and died for since the country began. Freedom of speech folks.
Those who automatically wish or want violence for what someone said is a facist, communist or whatever but defenitely not American. Most wanting violence against Baldwin is Filipino's, as we know what happens in the P.I. if you say something someone doesnt like.
I agree people have a right to freedom of speech without the fear of violence. As a Filipino I am embarrassed by the senator's comment. You can not say anything you like here, the way people do in America. If somebody is offended they might sue you and this could lead to imprisonment. There are also assassins here that can be hired for a very small amount.

there are fockers here, fockers there, there are fockers everywhere. Fockers in the Phil are said to be great, fockers in china are a doll, and fockers in India are hot, russian fockers are big, and american fockers can do anything. Lesson here is, mind your own fockers. We all got plenty.

<quoted text> are you saying that filipinos are haunted by its own deeds and exploits? well, there are more ugent matters that they need to be concerned about like cleaning the environment and working to eliminate corruption.
You're spot-on! The Manila River is ridiculously filthy! So many people died from the floods due to stopped-up drainage systems that allowed animal urine and sewage to blend in with the flood waters... A simple scratch of your legs allowing infection of said contaminated waters sometimes amounted to death! I was there! Unfortunately, too many Filipinos have absolutely no regard for the eco system... Corruption is a whole nuther issue!:)
