in fact, in this chinese forum, non-chinese are more active than chinese people. chinamen get insulted with racial slurs in their own doorsteps (their own china forum).
u got tricked by a flip.
Pasig's an easy guy to trick, I'm not surprised, lol!

Now now. Short term memory loss? Have you thought of the possibility that this stems from the consequences of the botched Manila hostage crisis?
Maybe something about the PNP opening up on full auto into the bus killing innocent Chinese, PNP stealing wallets and cell phones of the victims. Mis-labeling bodies oh because how can you properly identify a victim if his wallet is gone.
Maybe just maybe the Chinese have a long memory and want to put the hurt on Filipino's anyway they can. Arrogant and stupid of these women to demand from the Chinese. All they did was piss them off big time.
They used their own national flag on killer Mendolza's coffin

That not only pissed the Chinese, but has shown the world how uncivilised some Pinoys are.

I remembered in one thread after the tragedy, Crytal, the Vancouver Filipino girl, tried to defend Mendolza and said he had grievances.

An American commenter got angry and said "unbelievable". Innocent tourists got killed for being in the wrong place the time. At the end, some Pinoys defended the killer, showed no sympathy for the victims, and even treated the killer as a national hero whose coffin was draped with Philippines national flag.

It won't happen in N. America for sure.

Uncle Sam has no respect for not only your economic zone, but it never respects your 12 nautical miles line.
That is why Uncle Sam can conduct illegitimate espionage/surveillance activities 2 or 3 miles away from you coast line.
So by now I understand why some people say Pinoys have low IQ.
Sour grapes for the fact that US is 100% in support to the Filipinos? What a pity for you to blame your low IQ. Uppppppppppps are you Elias ???

I wonder why Uncle Sam would even bother to sneak in a few illegitimate espionage activities 2 or 3 miles away from Phil. coast line, when in fact she is allowed free and unrestricted movement of vessels and aircraft anywhere in the Philippines under the Visiting Forces Agreement? Not all pinoys have low IQ, just the senators that ratified the VFA!

Actually, those senators in the Senate, especially Miriam Defensor has a very high IQ...that when she talks beyond the norm always in a fighting mood...

not good as she always have a high blood pressure attack...

and now they are bitching each other instead of working for the good of the country.

Now, you can see how Lim and Estrada are also showing how unprofessional they are ...instead of talking about their political agenda, they're fighting each other ...and the people are loving it...

It is VERY CLEAR that the PHILIPPINES has A VERY STRONG LEGAL BASIS. And that is WHY she has my support.
You write with a squatter mentality. You believe you are entitled to something that is not yours. Just because you believe it does not change reality.
You know YOURSELF the CHINESE have no LEGAL BASIS and yet you still continue supporting them. If I'm blinded by nationalistic pride. SO WHAT ARE YOU?
I have never defended China with regards to the Spratly Islands. I realize that reading is a skill you have not mastered but do try to find a tutor.

Wow. Your lunacy knows no bounds. I spent about a decade in the RP under diplomatic privilege. I understand the affairs of the region far better than you ever will.

Humor me, if you dare. What diplomatic experience do you have? When did you serve in the AFP? How many years did you spend in the ARMM? When was the last time you involved yourself with international law on a professional basis? I can't wait to see that post.

What may appear to many as a support for Mendoza at the time was actually a criticism against the Philippine gov’t officials for their injustices and corrupt practices that lead people to go insane as in the case of Mendoza. What Mendoza did was deplorable, that is a given. What I would admit to would be the incompetence of the police and the gov’t in the handling of situation, and I’m personally embarrassed by the inappropriate behavior of some pinoys in connection with the incident. I believe that Pres. Aquino should have wasted no time in apologizing to the relatives of the victims. If you happen to be one of them, then please,on behalf of all right thinking pinoys, accept our deepest apologies and sincere condolences.

Only 32 out of 524 of Federation of Filipino-Chinese Companies Paid Their Taxes .

MANILA, Philippines - First the audience applauded when President Aquino spoke in Chinese. Then there was nervous laugher as he rattled off the number of firms and individuals not paying taxes.

Finally the room fell silent as the President, still speaking Chinese, urged members of the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry Inc.(FFCCCI) to pay correct taxes.

“Based on your own 2011-2013 directory, I understand that your federation includes 207 firms and organizations as members. Only 105 of these have a Tax Identification Numbers (TIN),” Aquino told FFCCCI yesterday.

“Of these 105 firms, only 54 filed tax returns. To make matters worse, 38 firms and organizations actually filed returns with zero tax due. This means that only 16 out of the 207, or only around eight percent, of your member-organizations paid taxes,” the President added.

The President also noted that only 424 out of 552 FFCCCI individual members have TINs, and 14 of them filed returns with zero tax due.

“What this means is 354 out of 552 members or 64 percent of you did not pay taxes for the same reasons: no TIN, no tax due, or nothing filed at all. In fact, of those who filed and paid income taxes, a lot of you paid less than P100,000. There were some who paid less than P1,000 in taxes,” the President pointed out.

“I was shocked, to say the least, when I learned this because that would mean that you are making even less than what I receive every month. Can this be correct? The stockholders of your companies, some of whom must receive glowing reports of your earnings, must be surprised by this as well,” he added.

The President reminded the FFCCCI that while their contributions to nation-building such as the construction of classrooms and provision of social services are appreciated, they still have the obligation to pay taxes just like everybody else in the country.

“Hui sin pa la tyo she (Please pay the proper taxes),” the President said in the Hokkien dialect.

As soon as Astro. guy figures out how good your stuff (passport and experience) is, he shall have them all very soon, by just saying that they are "mine". Then you stuff becomes his stuff.

But I wonder how you can transfer your knowledge and experience to this ignorant and arrogant Pinoy guy.

Perhaps, in the way that he fills the gas tank of his car in any gas station. You can ask him to bend over to let you stick your organ into his body to enable knowledge transfer.

Are you talking about Chinese Chinese or Filipino Chinese?

Or you hate them all regardless of their nationality. What matters to you is ancestry, not their citizenship.
