Whether the ship got stuck or not is irrelevant. The point I was making is that the Filipinos are a bunch of ungrateful imbeciles for fining us 1.5 million dollars. I'm writing my congressman to express my outrage that while we face sequestration and defense cuts, the Filipinos have the audacity to fine us for protecting them. Cut them off.
Did you vote for your Congressman? Lollllllllllllll ungrateful and embeciles are too cruel words...when in fact, the US and Philippine government are not at war but at peace. There is the word "peaceful negotiation"...and both parties will definitely reach to a mutual respectable agreement...so keep your anger to yourself. Only embeciles and uneducated act irresponsible ....

The facts speak for themselves. The Filipinos are screwing us. Do you really think the 1.5 million dollars that they want will be used to repair the reef? Its punitive and not compensatory in nature and will be used by corrupt officials to support their whoremongering activities. The Filipinos are the true useless taxpayer sucking parasites. Worst of all, they're sucking our tax dollars and not their own.

By the way, just to be clear, there is nothing wrong with whoremongering - just do it with your own money and with someone good looking.

The Filipinos did not destroy the reefs.. so whoever destroy the reefs...they're responsible for screwing the reefs..

Remember and learn to be responsible. If you destroy something ...be honorable and take the responsibility. Parasites from your mouth have nothing to do ....

Really? Flips have destroyed 90% of their reefs and still use dynamite and cyanide. Try taking responsibility for your own actions. Oh I forgot you have no honor to take responsibility for yourselves.

How dare you use Americans as an issue of your reef being destroyed.

Filipinos and their govt try hard to send out misinformation everyday to portray them as a peaceful and decent democratic country in the world.

But this is their campaign to portray themselves positively and other countries negatively.

That is also how the govt fool the people that they are living in paradise and they should be supportive of the govt.

In the Philippines, 9/11 and Boston Marathon types of violence occur monthly if not weekly, e.g. assasination of political opponents and journalists, shooting between police and criminals, killing among gangs, tribal wars, robbing and killing of foreign tourists ...

Tragedies often happen to the poor people. Last week 4 people were buried alive when a hill of garbage collapsed and trapped them. They people tried to make a few bucks from the trash mountain and sadly lost their lives.

Pinoy nickle gangs, keep lying about your country. You will get the respect from the world!

And a Picasso/Rembrandt is worth a whopping 150 millions? LOL! But how could the economy run if I don't spend. How am I suppose to use other peoples money if I don't borrow for 1.5 % interest? The moment is yours if you could think it that way but the rest of time is mine. LoL!

PH poverty incidence unchanged in past 6 yrs

10% of Filipino families rated ‘extremely poor’
Philippine Daily Inquirer
12:02 am | Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

Economic growth over the past six years hardly made a dent in poverty incidence in the Philippines, as the percentage of Filipinos living below the poverty line remained practically the same between 2006 and 2012, official statistics showed.

The poverty incidence stood at 27.9 percent in the first semester of 2012—“practically unchanged” from the same period in 2009 (28.6 percent) and in 2006 (28.8 percent), the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) reported Tuesday.

Although the poverty incidence was practically unchanged in the past six years, the number of poor people was expected to be higher in 2012 because of the country’s growing population.

Balisacan said underemployment in rural areas, security problems in provinces facing insurgencies and warlords, and the falling price of a number of commodities such as sugar were mainly to blame.

NSCB Secretary General Jose Ramon Albert said at the briefing that during the first semester of 2012, a Filipino family of five needed P5,458 to meet basic food needs every month. Families earning that amount were considered to be living in “extreme poverty.”
