  1. Phillip 324 (blog 16):
    Thanks for a good post. I cannot answer this for JDR, but I would like to make a couple of observations about party affiliation and corruption:

    1) Given the structure of politics here and elsewhere in the Philippines, there is no realistic prospect for an independent candidate or campaign (except possibly at rather low levels).

    2) Given the reality that elections are largely determined by vote-buying, it takes a substantial amount of money to be a politician or a candidate. (more about this at the bottom)

    3) When entering politics, one has to choose a party. One of the primary criteria for this is which party is most likely to win – given an absence of substantive philosophical issues (like liberal and conservative) in Philippine elections.

    4) I would assert that the charges of corruption (not to mention oppression, tyranny and inauspicious fatherhood) against the Espina party (Bando Espina), in the context of the political landscape of the Philippines, have been overstated for obvious political reasons. And the charge or murder was a clear opportunistic ingenuous self-serving ploy that had a huge effect in the last election.

    5) There is no real reason to think the other party is or will be less corrupt. I am not making specific accusations, just observing that the only assurance we have of this is the word of a politician who has obviously lied about many other things, and who’s family has a history of participation in graft and corruption.

    We have kind of a “catch-22” in Philippine politics. How can a politician opposed to vote-buying be elected without buying votes? Why would anyone spend a huge amount of money campaigning for a political job that pays fairly low, unless he had certain expectations? Go to any province in the Philippines and look to see who has the largest house.

    The answer is not in trying to identify less corrupt politicians. If they exist, how would we know? Should we vote for the one who does the best job of convincing us he is less corrupt? The candidate who spends the most (or at least a lot) is highly likely to win regardless of our concerns about corruption.

    The answer is to change the system. There are some fairly obvious things that can be done along this line, and I welcome a discussion about that. If Glenn Chong is really against corruption, I challenge him to address the issues from a systemic perspective. I would be glad to offer some constructive suggestions.

    WE ARE NOT ACCUSING JDR FOR MAKING SUCH DIRE PREDICTIONS OR STORIES, PER SE. WE ARE ACCUSING HIM OF GROSS IRRESPONSIBILITY AND TOTAL LACK OF FORESIGHT. CONSIDER THESE FACTORS: 1. RADIO IS A VERY PERVASIVE MEDIUM OF COMMUNICATION, ESPECIALLY IN RURAL AREAS. ITS REACH PERMEATES DOWN TO THE LOWER CLASS OF SOCIETY. 2. THE POOR RURAL FOLKS ARE THE PREDOMINANT MARKET FOR RADIO.

  3. BILL GREGORY 320

    3. BEING POOR, THEY ARE HIGHLY SUSCEPTIBLE TO SLIGHT DEVIATIONS OR MANIPULATIONS IN THE AIRWAVES. 4. THE ONE SPEAKING ABOUT THE DOOMSDAY SCENARIO IS A PUBLIC OFFICIAL, SOMEONE OUR POOR PEOPLE WOULD READILY BELIEVE. 5. THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF JDR CAME A FEW DAYS AFTER THE BIG EARTHQUAKE ON 28 OCT 2007… THEREBY GIVING HIS SUBSEQUENT PUBLIC COMMENTS ABOUT VOLCANOES AND DOOM ADDED CREDIBILITY BECAUSE OF THE OCCURRENCE OF AN EXTERNAL INDEPENDENT EVENT… THAT IS THE EARTHQUAKE.

    (THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN POSTED FIRST)

  5. IN OTHER WORDS, KUNG WALA PA LANG KADTONG EARTHQUAKE, THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF JDR ON RADIO WOULD NOT HAVE CREATED PANIC AMONG OUR PEOPLE. WHAT GAVE HIM A BIT OF CREDIBILITY WAS THE EARTHQUAKE THAT SERVED AS AN EXTERNAL EVENT THAT REINFORCED HIS STATEMENTS. ANG LINOG ACTUALLY NAGHATAG UG PAGTUO SA DEKLARASYON NI JDR BAHIN SA VOLCANO. KAY KUNG WA PA KADTONG LINOG, DILI SIGURO MAHADLOK ANG MGA TAWO. THAT IS WHAT JDR SHOULD HAVE PUT IN HIS MIND. HE SHOULD HAVE THAT FORESIGHT TO PREVENT PANIC AND CONFUSION AMONG THE PEOPLE. THAT IS WHY WE SHOULD RECALL THIS PUBLIC OFFICIAL TO PREVENT HIM FROM CAUSING FURTHER HAVOC IN OUR COMMUNITY.

  6. PUTATIVE 1

    THE DEATH OF THE FORMER GOVERNOR IN THE HANDS OF AN ESPINA HENCHMAN, UNDER HIGHLY QUESTIONABLE CIRCUMSTANCES, PROVIDED BY GERRY ESPINA HIMSELF ON RADIO 5 HOURS AFTER THE FORMER GOVERNOR’S ASSASSINATION IS SOMETHING THAT CALLS OUR PEOPLE TO WAKE UP TO THE HARSH REALITIES PERVADING OUR COMMUNITY AT THAT TIME. GERRY ESPINA HIMSELF PROVIDED THE FOUNDATION FOR OUR PEOPLE TO SUSPECT HIM. IF I WENT ON AIR TO STOP HIM FROM TAUNTING HIS ARCH ENEMY WHILE HE LAID IN THE GURNEY LIFELESS BECAUSE OF THE ACTS OF HIS HENCHMAN… I HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO STOP HIM.

  7. WHEN I FIRST PUBLICLY REBUKED GERRY ESPINA FOR HIS ACTIONS… OUR PEOPLE HEARD FOR THE FIRST TIME THE VOICE OF OPPOSITION AND RESISTANCE TO THE TYRANNY OF AN ABUSIVE FAMILY THAT HAS RAPED OUR PEOPLE AND PROVINCE FOR 12 LONG YEARS. AFTER THAT DAY, 9 SEPTEMBER 2007, THE REST IS HISTORY. IF HISTORY WERE TO REPEAT ITSELF, I WILL GLADLY DO IT AGAIN.

  8. PUTATIVE 1

    I DONT NEED YOUR SUGGESTIONS. I WILL JUST SHOW TO OUR PEOPLE HOW MUCH I HAVE ACHIEVED IN 3 YEARS COMPARED TO 12 YEARS OF THE ESPINAS’ RULE.

    FOR A START, CHECK THESE FACTS:

    IN NIT… GOVERNOR ESPINA GAVE ROUGHLY ABOUT TWO MILLION IN INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS (WAITING SHED AND COLUMNS FOR A NEW BUILDING)

  9. PUTATIVE 1

    THOSE WERE THE PROJECTS OF GOVERNOR ESPINA IN 6 YEARS!

    IN NIT… WE FINISHED CONSTRUCTING A MILLION PESO EXTENSION OF THE ANDAYA BLDG. I COMMITTED ANOTHER 1 MILLION PESOS FOR THE COMPLETION OF THAT EXTENSION TO COVER 2 SPEECH LABS AND 2 OFFICES. IM ONLY IN OFFICE FOR 6 MONTHS.

  10. IN THE PUBLIC MARKET… GOVERNOR ESPINA GAVE ABOUT 1.2 MILLION PESOS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE TRICYCLE STATION. THE ONLY PROJECT IN 6 YEARS!

    IN THE PUBLIC MARKET… I GAVE 1 MILLION FROM MY PRIORITY DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE FUND FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF ANOTHER PUBLIC MARKET. SENATOR ROXAS GAVE ME 2 MILLION IN PUBLIC FUNDS THAT I ALSO CHANNELED TO THE PUBLIC MARKET. IN SHORT, 3 MILLION PESOS IN PROJECTS IN 6 MONTHS!

    I WILL PROVIDE OTHER COMPARISON IN THE COMING DAYS ONCE THE PROJECT BIDDINGS ARE OVER.

  11. Rep. Chong 318,

    In fairness, si Tamsy sa usa ka blog ang naghatag ug twist nga Puta Talkative sa bag-ong alyas ni John Smith/ Angry, ang Putative. Dili na ako.

    Para sa mga freedom fighters,

    Grabe tong gibuhat sa mga Bandido pinaagi kang Angry-ngit, Angry, John Smith, Putative. Dungan nga atake heneral dinhi sa blogs ug uban pang media kontra kang Rep. Chong, Dr. Borrinaga ug Bishop Bactol. Wa gyud toy lipodlipod. Ang numero unong panagang mao lamang ang kamatuoran – nga wala gayud silay isyu nga makaipit sa ilang gitaake ug puros sila supalpal.

    Ang usa pa ka natural nga panagang mao ang atong paggamit dinhi ug Binisaya sa blogs. Tungod kay wala lagi kasabot ang Angry-ngit sa mga tubag ug tulibagbag kontra sa iya, mora na hinuon siya ug irong buang nga nagsumong-sumong. Bisan na la ug unsa ang iyang ibanghag ug ang banghagan.

    Kanang panlutos nga way turutagana hasta taman sa ginhawa, style na ni Dok Rabbit, nga morag maoy nagpundo niining mga atake karon. Mora pod ug gikan sa Kapitolyo ang sugo sa mga pulis pagpa ihaw sa mga iburuwang nga manok. Kalooy pod sa mga sunoy, segurado mga mahalon to, mahal pa ngani ang uban sa mga asawa, unya gitiklo lang diay ug gisabong sa karaha. Wa uroy pantuk-i.

    Ok, sige, Men?Darna, Ran Online, Juliet Rubio, i translate na pod ni kang Angry-ngit ug sa Puta Talkative.

  12. Attention mga Freedom Fighters,

    Karong gabii saulugon nato ang Balik-Sadya: Sayaw sa Bag-ong Tuig, aron sa pagsugat sa 2008. Ibalik na usab ang Grand March, ang usa ka ritual nga nakapahiusa sa atong mga tawo sa nanglabay nang panahon.

    Giwagtang ang atong kada tuig nga New Year’s Eve Dance sa panahon sa mga Bandido Estranghero, kang kinsang katuyuan mao ang pag divide-and-rule sa atong mga tawo, aron dili kita magkahiusa ug basin sila magmanilampuson sa usa ka sitwasyon nga magkurokabingkil ta atong lugar.

    Human ta kawangi sa atong kinagatuig nga ritual, gipakita pa sa ato kung unsa ta ka gawasnon sa mga katuyuan sa mga Bandido. Gilatiran ta ug barbed wire dinha sa usa ka bisperas sa fiesta, pila na karon ka tuig ang ninglabay.

    Karong gabii, ibalik nato ang atong kasadyaan. Apan tungod lagi kay tingalig mopatim-aw ang mga Bandido ug ang ilang kasagabay, nga maoy nagtamay, naglisodlisod ug nanamastas sa atong bag-ong pamunuan, ato silang andaman pagpakita sa atong ka dismaya ug ka disgusto sa ilang gibuhat.

    Mag andam ta ug Yam-id Brigade. Magsadya ta, pero makakita ngani ta ug Bandido ug uban pang samokan sa atong kinabuhi nga mopatim-aw, atong ipakita sa kanila ang atong maidlot nga yam-id. Bisan ug mga five seconds lang, basta makita nila. Unya balik dayon sa atong kasadya.

    Pero maayo na lang unta pod ug dili na lang mopatim-aw ang mga Bandido no? Sama sa ilang gibuhat nga dili pagpakita niadtong fiesta sa Oktubre. Aron dili na ta mahasol.

    Mag ikmat pod ta kang Angry/ Puta Talkative, nga maoy nag insulto sa atong tanan ug sa atong kultura karong bag-o pa lang dinhi sa blogs. Tikong na seguro ang angay ani sa iya, dili lang yam-id, kung mopatim-aw siya sa Balik Sadya unya.

  13. Glenn Chong, posts 3 to 11, particularly #7
    You criticize me for being talkative, but then you give me so much to talk about. I will address your post #317, but let’s review your comments about the death of Danny Parilla first, since that is the stated purpose of this blog. (KKB: I know what you say, but not worth bothering with)

    First let me say I am not insensitive about the death of Danny. He was my lawyer, and more than that. I mourn his passing as much as anyone outside his family, and I find it a tragedy difficult to bear. That’s part of the reason I find it particularly reprehensible for someone to take advantage of his death for self-serving political opportunism. You would still be counting groceries if not for your exploitation of the death of Danny.

    1) You say Danny was killed by “an Espina henchman”. That is highly pejorative language, considering it doesn’t mean anything. Corpin had worked for Espina years earlier. Does that make Espina responsible for his actions? Only in your imagination.

    2) What was “highly questionable” about the circumstances of Danny’s death? The circumstances seem rather straightforward to me.

    3) You say or imply that Espina said something on the radio after the killing that implicates him. Okay, what did he say? Stop making vague defamatory innuendo. Tell us what you mean, and provide whatever substantiation you can.

    What else you got? Oh yes, you say Espina had the most to gain. I suggest that Espina was not the one who gained from Danny’s death, but rather the politician who exploited the issue to defeated him.

    Anything else?
    You have used high suggestive language, with no foundation. Really – none. This from the one who says public officials should be careful on the radio because the poor people aren’t very smart.

    I understand you have charged Espina with another murder with even less rationale, is that true?

  14. I want to revisit one issue from my previous post. You say that Espina was “taunting” immediately after the death of Danny. That is a very serious thing to say, not so much legally as prejudicially with the public you accuse of not being smart. I believe that is very far from the truth, that Mayor Espina’s purpose in going on the radio was to personally let the public know about a very great tragedy. Why do you characterize that as taunting? That statement makes me more angry than anything else from you, it may be the most reprehensible and publicly malicious thing you have said, especially given the self-serving motive and the disrespect it does to Danny.

  15. Angry:

    Before you told me that you are not with Espina,and now you are trying to defend them? Don’t make any reason that you are just trying to compare between less and more involved in vote buying, you are LIKE JDR AND EVIL DYNASTY TRYING TO MAKE YOURSELF CLEAN. WHATEVER YOU SAY STILL WE DON’T BELIEVE YOU!!! ME I KNOW WHAT IS THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH IS YOU ARE ONE OF THEM. EVIL DYNASTY ARE MAKING FORTUNE HERE IN BILIRAN SINCE THEY SIT IN POSITION, THEY MAKE BILIRANON AS THEIR PALABIGASAN OR BANK. IF REALLY WANT TO HELP BILIRANON, TALK TO THEM, ASK THEM THE HISTORY OF POLITICIANS, DON’T LIMIT YOURSELF BY JUST TALKING WITH THOSE PEOPLE WHO PAID BY THE ESPINA, BECAUSE YOU FOOLING YOURSELF MORE!!! TALK WITH THE SIKAD DRIVER, TALK WITH THE PEOPLE AT THE MARKET PLACE, TALK WITH THE VENDOR, TALK WITH THE PEOPLE THERE AT THE PLACE WHERE THERES A LOT OF POOR PEOPLE. NEVER TRY AND TRY AND TRY TO CONVINCE US. WHY DO YOU THINK THIS BLOGS BUILD UP AFTER WHAT HAPPEN TO LATE GOV. PARILLA? WHY DO YOU THINK PEOPLE VOTE REP. CHONG? AND WHY DO YOU THINK EVIL SENIOR IS KEEP ON AIRING TO RN ABOUT POLITICS ISSUES? ANALYZE EVERYTHING FROM THE SMALLEST ISSUES TO THE BIGGEST. BECAUSE REALLY YOU ARE JUST TALKING WITH NO FACTUAL EVIDENCE. PEOPLE BEHIND YOU ARE JUST SECRETLY LAUGHING AT YOU, WHY? BECAUSE YOU ARE LIKE A CHILD THAT WAS NEWLY LEARN HOW TO SPEAK!!! GET ME? REALLY NO WORDS CAN DESCRIBED HOW STUPID YOU ARE!!!!! WAIT TILL NEXT ELECTION, THEN SHOW YOURSELF IN EVERY PLACE WHERE THE PARTY YOU DEFEND FOR. IN THAT YOU WILL SUPPORT THEM MORE. FUNNY, BECAUSE I THINK HIGHLY TO THOSE FOREIGNER, I NEVER EXPECT THAT THERES LIKE YOU THAT WILL LOW THE LEVEL BECAUSE OF ANY REASON TO DEFEND BY TELLING LIES THOSE PEOPLE LIKE JDR!!! REALLY I FEEL SAD FOR YOU!!! GOOD LUCK FOR BEING STUPID FRIEND!!!

  16. ” Party Affliations ” JDR & (Bando Espina)
    Addressed to “Angry – Putative ”

    I think it is time I step Back into this conversation, as I can see that your wings need to be clipped. I really wish that I had time to sit here everyday, and controvert ANY and ALL claims against Congressman Glenn A.Chong!!!

    Only a few times I came against JDR, but he had NOTHING to say…. and could NOT defend himself or the Espinas In any way except but to side step the issues.You my friend are an intelligent fool for ever defending the rights of the Espinas or even JDR in any way shape or form.

    You are certainly correct when you say that it is a catch-22!!! But lets look atthe factsmyfriend. On or about July 1st,2007 JDR was on the radio again making a fool of himself as always, making statements that HE ,himself won his seat due to popularity, and NOT vote buying!!! BUT…this in fact is false.

    From information given to me by some VERY CLOSE friends,but on the Espina side (YUCK) good ol JDR paid out P40.00 to gain his seat….most would pay out P20.00 ( I wont mention names ) – AT THIS TIME!!!!!!! ; and some paid out more than P20.00,but nevertheless, JDR paid for his vote, and this my friend is vote buying and vote selling here in the Philippines.

    There is also an issue at hand about vote buying that does NOT give directly monies to the individuals…..but it is rather directed towinning their votes,buy paying for their tuba and other various drinks and enjoyment(s) etc….. but this is an issue that can be discussed at a later time.

    OH OH OH….by the way……… if you do not believe that there is any proof of vote buying here…i can show my pictures, photos and photo copies emails etc…and yes, even this will come out in due time! Even in a text messege to the “comelect” the night of the vote, trying to report vote buying and vote obstruction, was ignored by the “comelect rep.here in Biliran, even when the phone number was given on air- radio and was well known to be a true and correct phone number….. this was still ignored.

    The point that needs to be addressed in this particular issue is that things need reorganization here in the Philippines if they ever wish to progress, if not, they will slowly be left behind in a world that is so ever changing, and progressing.

    In the future,please do not state that:

    “I would assert that the charges of corruption (not to mention oppression, tyranny and inauspicious fatherhood) against the Espina party (Bando Espina), in the context of the political landscape of the Philippines, have been overstated for obvious political reasons. ” unless you, yourself arewilling to come against the Espinas —- OVERSTATED !!!!! YOUR KIDDING ME RIGHT!!!!

    My friend….. should I open my mouth….. go on air…tv…. etc. the credibility of this country would be destroyed, and its reputation would be damaged for years to come!!!! Change is needed…..lets start by activly getting the Espinas OUT OF ANY OFFICE!!!!!

    My hand to Glenn A.Chong…..atleast he is willing to go the extra mile, put forth effort to try and MAKE CHANGE!

    By the way…… the povertry level here is so low, that even P20.00 given by a politician running for office would help to not only win their vote. but win the confidense and trust in that person….BUT it is proven,and a fact that actualy in reality they lose in the end….. and progress is hindered.

    Thanks my friend…..

  17. He, he, he! Angry na pod ang Puta Talkative.

    Segurado, wa ni siya makabasa sa mga blogs dinhi gikan sa Part I. Mao nga nagsumongsumong. Sakto ka, Gimini, kini nga Puta Talkative morag karon palang kahibawo mosulti, kay putakputakan kaayo, lupig pa ang ugang.

    Kanang iyang tipsing-tipsing sa Iningles, dili na niya pwede isuwat ug Binisaya. Kay nagsalig man na siya nga duna unta tay malikatan sa iyang sophistry sa Iningles, unya makatoo na ta sa iya. Pero dili man na pwede sa Binisaya. Kung tinuod, tinuod sa Binisaya. Kung buwa, buwa! Ang iyang gusto mahitabo dinhi nga ang iyang buwa, katoohan nga tinuod. Dili na pwede ug, Puta Tuk-an unya ka Tive.

    Gawas sa bayluay ug pulong dinhi, kini nga blogs dunay tago-tago, tigo-tigo, buklo-buklo sa mga bloggers. Lingaw-lingaw ba. Pananglitan, si Darna, makadaghan nang beses nga akong nadakpan ug nabuklo ang iyang mga alyas – Ran Online, Juliet Rubio, Turbo (or tubo o butu ba to?), ug uban pa. Unya moingon ka nga nag name-calling ko? Sori ha, si Darna lang na ang naghatag ug daghang alyas dinhi, ang ako pagbuklo lang sa iya.

    Pareha sa imo, gipulihan nimo ang orihinal nga Angry. Unya John Smith na pod ka, Puta Talkative na pod. Pagklaro ka uy.

    Tingalig nakaingon ka nga way nakaila nimo. Suway daw ug ngadto unya sa Balik-Sadya. Tingalig makurat ka.

  18. sa pagka klaro lang tanan namalit ug buto except sa nanga pilde
    nga konsehal ug kang atty villordon, kana c Jun namalit pod na uy
    !!!!!! kay ug namalit lang cla, daug nang tanan K L A R O N A

  19. UNSAON NA LA KAHA NI NO PAGBIRIKIS NI JDR DIHA SA RADYO NILA BAHIN SA CHEAPER MEDICINES ACT OF 2007, NGA GIPASA NA SA KONGRESO? KITAA, NAA ANG NGALAN NI REP. CHONG ISIP USA SA MGA SPONSORS.

  21. Gimini & Aguila1
    I have to tell you both that your logic is hard to follow. I don’t think it has to do with your English as much as your thought process. I’ll make a couple of comments and then you tell me what I missed.

    1) You say you don’t believe me, that I’m lying. You don’t believe me about what? I’ve said very little in the way of an assertion that is open to belief or not. Almost everything I’ve said is criticism of the logic and manner of Chong & his followers. What is there to believe or not believe in that? You say I have no factual evidence – factual evidence about what? I just point out that Chong & followers don’t have “factual evidence” as you say for their very aggressive & malicious allegations, including murder.

    2) If I talk to secad drivers, etc., what will I find out? That they believed Chong? You ask why do I think there was a lot of blogging after the murder of Danny and people voted Chong? I think that was largely because Glenn Chong seized on the opportunity to make unfounded, opportunistic, exploitive allegations of murder, and people being somewhat traumatized were in a mood to believe it. He can’t even produce a decent reason for his accusations now after having many months to think about it and investigate. It is always easy to convince poor people that the people with power are against them (and they usually are in some sense) but what does that mean?

    3) You say I’m stupid. (Get in line.) If I call someone stupid, there will be no doubt about the way in which I mean their logical process is deficient. I invite you take that approach – tell me what you mean. I would appreciate the constructive criticism, and I promise to listen carefully.

    Agugila1 – go ahead clip my wings.

    4) If you made charges against JDR and he didn’t defend, most likely he didn’t feel your accusations were worthy of notice. When someone does that with me, I re-examine the accusation, and if I’m sure what I’m saying is important then I repeat the accusation, usually in a different way. So my question to you is – if you made valid accusations and they weren’t answered, then why did you stop?

    5) I never said there wasn’t proof of vote-buying. Quite the opposite. I believe that all winning candidates do extensive vote-buying and I’ve said that. I asked JDR and he says he has never made the denial you claim. You can sign an affidavit if you want, but I think you had best produce the recording. I’m not surprised by what you say about the Comelec. There is much to say about the responsibility and complicity of the government in general regarding corruption and vote-buying in particular. This is what I was getting at when I said only a systemic solution means anything. Of course Glenn Chong doesn’t want my suggestions, and I think he doesn’t want to talk about ways to reduce corruption (except voting for him).

    6) I’m not really defending the Espinas, just saying that in the general corruptive environment of the Philippines, what do you expect? How are the Espinas worse than politicians in most other places? and what is your reason for believing that Chong is much better?

    I do believe that the case against Espina(s) was overstated – just listen to what Chong said and still says – oppression, tyranny, lack of freedom – what does that mean? That goes way beyond graft & corruption. And it’s obvious GC will say whatever pops into his head that he thinks will damage someone without regard for justification (can you deny that?), so how can you accept anything he says as having value? He is the source of most of the allegations. Why has he not come up with evidence against the Espinas? He promised he would. I know enough about book-keeping to know it is hard to hide improprieties, especially large ones, against a smart and determined auditor. Most people who “cook the books” rely on no one looking closely.

    My argument was not defending the Espinas as much as saying that attacking the Espinas does no good unless you are willing to talk intelligently about how to change the system (“re-organize” as you say and I agree). You think one politician is less corrupt than another – so what? That politician, like every other politician, still spent many millions of his own money to be elected. Do you think he did that because he likes to pay for the privilege of being abused?

    6) In what ways is Glenn Chong making change as you assert? What is Glenn Chong doing except promoting himself and tearing down others? As far as I can tell his main effect has been to lower the level of the conversation.

  22. Bright ni si Puta Talkative uy. Ang nakaapan lang ani sa iya kay lupig ni niya ang kabayo nga gaguyod sa tartanilya. Gamay ra nga bika ang gamit sa kabayo, pero kini kang Puta Talkative, mora plato kadagko ang bika sa kada mata. Sanglit ang iya lang masiplatan mao ang ka maayong tawo ni JDR sa usa ka mata, ug ang kakulangan ni Rep. Chong sa laing mata.

    Morag dili lang una ni siya mosagbang sa ako, kay ayo man siya ug mabuklo nga nakahigop siya sa sabaw sa mga sunoy nga gitiklo sa mga pulis, nga gisugo sa nagsuhol sa iya aron samukon na usab ni nga blogs. Pa snacka nang empleyado sa PIO sa Kapitolyo ha kung makadawat ka sa imong payola? Ning reklamo ra ba to sila kang Jack kay dili kono magpa snack kung makakobra na.

    Sige lang, Puta nga Aringit, padayon sa pagpahugot sa ugat sa imong liog. Pero sakit gayud na sa balatian nang daghan ang imong gisuwat, inubanan sa imong kapungot, unya dili diay ka makabutang sa imong ngalan sa imong komposisyon.

    Sunduga gad si Rep. Chong nga iyang ibutang ang iyang ngalan sa iyang blogs. Imo siyang gisaway, pero duna bay dulot ang imong pagsaway. Wala, tungod kay wala kay nawong nga ikaatubang pagbarog sa imong gisuwat. Nagpakita ka lang sa kaputi sa imong itlog.

  23. TO MY FELLOW FREEDOM FIGHTERS:

    AS THE OLD YEAR RUSHES TO MEET THE NEW… HERE’S ME SENDING MY BEST WISHES TO ALL OF YOU!

    WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST IN THE COMING YEAR!

    GOD BLESS US ALL!

  24. TO REP GLENN CHONG, JALMZ, AND BLOGGERS:

    WISHING YOU AND YOURS A VERY HEALTHY NEW YEAR!

    GREETINGS FROM BROOKLYN, WITH LOVE!!!!

  25. Rep. Glenn

    Ug puede mag-inengles ug gamay, dunay ginaingon nga:

    The best way to silence your critics is to do good deeds.
    What you stated above(NIT/market projects) is a good accomplishments so far for just less than 1 year in your
    political post. And those GSIS missing checks brought out months ago, I heard my nanay got hers already and did invest the money in little business.(I hope no great raid there please from opposing ranks. Let us just work it out
    amicably). Hey, thanks to you if your influence did that.

    I have a feeling that being a newbie politician and an
    idealistic at that, you have so many things to accomplish.
    War of words seem does not good result at all -good foreign grammar or local dialect alike.

    Maayo pa aksyon nalang, sir. Let us know more about your projects and where those of millions of pesos go. We will be happy to know your generous goals realized and peoples
    desire accomplished. Completion of circumferential road please if it is one of them?

    And yes, bulahang bag-ong tuig pod, Rep Glen…and to
    all bloggers in this thread.

    Angry now putative, will you join me wishing everyone happy new year here? Looks like it is very difficult for you write that simple english wish. Yeah, you missed wishing to say malipayong pasko too. Simple little act of kindness and thoughtfulness will go a long long way.
    Agree/disagree?

    See? This thread is not bad at all. Let us learn from one another.

    Again, in duet, me and angry now putative wish you all A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  29. Glenn Chong 317 (blog #16)
    Let me get this straight. You say your main or only specific complaint against JDR is a disagreement over the attributive authorship of a bill on price of medicines? Okay, so does a disagreement of that nature justify the terms traitor, brain-damaged, illegitimate, gay, delusional, etc.?

    I talked to JDR about this, and he says he congratulated you on your role in co-sponsoring this bill. There was a disagreement about whether you were a main author as you claimed or one of many co-sponsors. There is a big difference between being an author of a bill and a co-sponsor. It is easy to sign on as a co-sponsor, and requires little work. Bill authors are always looking for co-sponsors. One might also note that on this bill the main authors were all doctors. So – if you were an author, that should be easy to substantiate. Just post the link to the bill here listing you as author, and then you can prove JDR wrong. That would be much more effective than name-calling.

    If there was a “cease-fire” in effect at that time, it had to with name-calling, speculation and invective not with substantive political argumentation.

    Please note that the term traitor is defined as violating one’s allegiance to country. I don’t understand the relevance. Maybe you meant he only looks like a traitor or you only heard he was a traitor.

    As for saying you only said he appears to be brain-damaged rather than he actually is brain-damaged – > Uh, first that hardly lessens the insult (even legally) or your responsibility in the matter or the degree of expertise needed to make that assertion. And do your co-hosts who use the term brain-damaged all the time carefully say ” only appears to be” in every reference? I think not. You know this isn’t about JDR being brain damaged or looking brain damaged. It’s just about you finding vile things to say. It appears that you use whatever defamatory terms pop into your head without regard for propriety or rationale. He has never said anything like that about you, and if he did you would probably jump out of your skin in anger.

    You said Jun was “SHOUTING AND RAVING MAD AS IF YOU RULED THE AIRWAVES. . . . ACTING LIKE A DERANGED PERSON” and that some of your friends thought he was on drugs. Let me say I didn’t hear the particular broadcast you mention, but I have never heard Jun be even remotely this way. He does laugh at you sometimes. Why don’t you get a copy of that podcast and post it here so we can all judge. (Maybe you were really listening to Boy Ty or your father and got confused?)

  30. Bag-o na ang tuig, bag-o na pod unta ang atong hisgutan dinhi. Nganong mao ra man gihapon ang giputak ani ni Puta Talkative.

    Kini si Angry/ Puta Talkative, mora ug ang initial ani niya S.G. Morag duna ni silay sabot ni Darna nga pakawot-kawot. Kanang I scratch your back, you scratch mine ba.

    Ang sabot, morag mao ni. Dayegon niya si Darna kutob sa iyang utong, bahala na ug duna o wala bay mutuo sa iyang gisuwat. Ang importante nga mabasahan ni Darna ang iyang pagdayeg.

    Unya iya usab dauton ug wala tuo ang nagkontra kang Darna, labina gyud si Rep. Chong. Iya usab gidaut si Dr. Borrinaga sa blogs tungod lamang sa artikulo niini bahin sa volcanic eruption. Kung dili ka modayeg kang Darna, therefore kontra ka sa iya. Kung dili Jolibee, McDonald, kana lang duha, walay labot ang mga karenderia ug restaurant. Mao na ka kitid ang iyang panghunahuna.

    Isip balyu, atakehon ni Darna ug kasagabay ang mga pari, madre ug mga relihiyoso, labina gyud na si Bishop Bactol. Anitan nang obispoha para kang Angry.

    Duna toy blog nga gisuwat si Angry nga dunay pasumbingay nga tingali nagsuporta siya sa programa sa radyo ni Darna. Unya nag-ingon siya karong bag-o nga si anhing Gov. Danny abogado kono niya. Unya dili siya kahibawo mag Binisaya, nagsalig lang siya sa translation ni Men?darna, Ran Online, Puki-aw, Juliet Rubio.

    Sige tigo-tigo ta karon kung kinsa ni si Angry nga Puta Talkative.

  31. Happy New Year to all….. karon ra jud ko kalugar pag post….

    Ako la ni ipa-abot diha kang Mayor Susan ug sa tanang blogger dinhi nga makahibalo….. parte ni sa Municipyo sa Naval…. ngano man nga damo man daw ang mayor diha….. muagi paman daw ka sa buho usa muabot kang mayor susan ang papers….. paki tan-aw daw mayor ang system diha sa imong office.

  32. To Rep. Chong:

    Happy New Year! Malipayon ko na nakabasa sa mga projects and goals na imo na realized just within 6 months of service being mentioned in post # 10 & 11. Bisan dia ko sa layong dapit.

    Pasagdi nalang ning ubang tawo dire na wlay lingaw og ga-tabi lang. WAR of WORDS will not benefit biliranons. Sakto nang imong gibuhat rep. Ipakita lang sa ila ang imong serbisyo. Isupalpal na sa ilahang mga nawong kung gi-unsa nimo gihatagan og bili ang pondo sa biliran. Sakto na rep, no more WORDS but MORE ACTIONS..

    Halos kada adlaw jud ko ngsubay2x aning blog og nibilib jud ko nimo rep. I acknowledge your efforts para sa kaugmaon sa tanang biliranon..

    GOB BLESS !!! GO GO REP. CHONG!

  33. To Rep. chong’

    As a nature enthusiast, nidako ko sa biliran og nakakita ko unsay dakong kausaban sa atong dagat og kabukiran. Sa una, makakita ko og daghang salabong na ngpundok sa kabasakan or tanaman, mga aninipot motugpa sa among tugkaran, ang salog sa una pwede pa kaligoon APAN karon nausab na tanan.Ang paborito na kong salog hugaw na kaayo, ang mga aninipot wla na sad og tagsa nalng makit-anang mga salabong.

    I would like to suggest rep with pure intentions for the benefit of future generations. To create more RESTRICTIONS, LAWS,REGULATIONS AND HEAVIER PENALTIES which may prevent the total destruction of what we might lost forever. I know naa tay departamento na responsable ani. Apan, ang problema is IMPLEMENTATION. If there are already existing provisions for these matter, para sa ako dili pa enough. Our nature is depleting. More vigilant actions are needed for the following:

    1. Provisions for the PRESERVATION of some part of biliran mountains as a safe habitat for our local species and declare it as PROTECTED AREA.

    2. Heavier penalties for poaching (illegal hunting and fishing) and selling or killing endagered spiecies AND kaingin.

    3. Trash management not only sa naval pero sa tibuok biliran island

    4. Create a committe with a goal of identifying endangered species sa biliran then make move to save them.

    5. TOILET CAMPAIGN / SEWAGE SYSTEM for each barangay kay majority sa mga tagabiliran wlay rest room og ang dagat or sapa nalang tawon ang gamiton.

    If daghan pa na wala nako mamention, if naa ka time rep pls consider my plea to look into my concerns. I would like to be a part of this BIG MOVE to save BILIRAN ISLAND PARADISE…for now..but if we will not take of it BILIRAN’S nature is doomed 10 yrs. from now.

    sincerely yours..

  34. Ran Online, Julieto,

    THE PHILIPPINE ASSOCIATION OF RETIRED PERSONS, THRU THEIR CHAPTER PRESIDENT, MR. BENECIO PAGHUBASAN, SENT THEIR LETTER TO MY OFFICE SOME MONTHS AGO. I WROTE THE PRESIDENT OF GSIS, WINSTON GARCIA, INQUIRING THEM ABOUT THE CHECKS AND DELAYED PENSIONS. THEN I WROTE AGAIN A FOLLOWUP LETTER.

    JUST NOW, I RECEIVED A COPY OF THE LETTER DATED 27 DECEMBER 2007 INFORMING MR. PAGHUBASAN OF THE RELEASE OF THEIR PENSIONS EITHER BY CHECK OR CREDIT TO THEIR GSIS E-CARD.

    HONESTLY, I DID NOT USE INFLUENCE BECAUSE I DON’T WANT TO BECOME AN INFLUENCE PEDDLER. I WANT TO RETAIN MY DIGNITY AS A PUBLIC OFFICIAL. I USED MY ARGUMENTS TO CONVINCE THE GSIS PRESIDENT.

  37. PINOYISIP 28

    I WILL SOON POST HERE A SUMMARY OF THE PROJECTS ALREADY BID OUT LAST 27 DECEMBER 2007.

    JUST THIS MORNING, I MET TESDA TO MAP OUT THE IMPLEMENTATION OF OUR 6 MILLION-PESO TESDA SCHOLARSHIPS FOR CY 2008. ANOTHER 6 MILLION IS EARMARKED FOR 2009 AND ANOTHER 6 MILLION FOR 2010. WE WILL ALSO ANNOUNCE THE ALLOCATION PER BARANGAY BECAUSE EACH BARANGAY WILL HAVE THEIR RESPECTIVE SCHOLARSHIP ALLOCATION. THESE SLOTS INCLUDE CALL-CENTER AGENT TRAINING OUTSIDE BILIRAN.

    BY THE WAY, TESDA TOLD ME THAT BEFORE, THEY HAD TO RUN AFTER CONGRESSMAN ESPINA JUST SO THEY CAN GET HOLD OF THE PROMISED 1 MILLION IN SCHOLARSHIP. IT WAS PROMISED BUT IT NEVER CAME. I ENTERED INTO A MOA WITH TESDA FOR 18 MILLION PESOS IN SCHOLARSHIPS OVER 3 YEARS… AND I HANDED IT TO THEM IN A SILVER PLATTER IN MANILA. I PROMISED ALSO 500,000 IN FUNDS TO BUY EQUIPMENT FOR TRAINING.

    ADDITIONALLY, I ALLOCATED 1 MILLION IN SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS WITH THE COMMISSION ON HIGHER EDUCATION FOR 200 SCHOLARS. THIS IS ON TOP OF THE 55 SCHOLARS I ALREADY IDENTIFIED AS MY CHED SCHOLARS. SINCE THE FUNDS HAVE NOT BEEN RELEASED, THE IDENTIFIED STUDENTS WILL INITIALLY PAY. WE WILL REFUND THEM WITH A CHECK FOR 5,000.00 PER YEAR OR 2,500 PER SEMESTER. I AM SCOURING FOR OTHER FUNDS TO AUGMENT THIS CHED SCHOLARSHIP SO I CAN BRING IT TO AT LEAST 1,000 BY THE END OF MY TERM.

    GIMINI 30

    THANK YOU SO MUCH GIMINI. I WILL NO LONGER REPLY TO ANGRY/PUTATIVE’S POSTS HERE NOW THAT I KNOW HIS REAL PERSONALITY. I WISH TO STAY OUT OF HIS VINDICTIVE PERSONALITY AS MUCH AS I CAN. HAPPY NEW YEAR MY FRIEND!

    MAAL 31

    HELLO MAAL! WE FILED THE CASE AGAINST GOVERNOR ROGER ESPINA SOMETIME AROUND THE SECOND WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 2007. TWO WEEKS LATER HE FLEW TO THE UNITED STATES. WE ARE TRYING TO CONNECT THE PEOPLE WHOM HE MET THERE AND THE EVENTS NOW TRANSPIRING HERE IN BILIRAN. I ASKED A NEW SET OF LAWYERS BASED IN MANILA TO THOROUGHLY REVIEW THE COMPLAINT FILED SO THAT IT CAN BE STRENGTHENED. I WILL POST UPDATES LATER. THE CASE IS WITH THE OMBUDSMAN.

    I WILL ALSO FILE ADDITIONAL CHARGES AGAINST GOVERNOR ESPINA WITHIN THE FIRST 3 MONTHS OF THE YEAR. I WILL ANNOUNCE THIS IN DUE TIME HERE. BUT IF THEY CONTINUE TO HIT ME… THEN I WILL ANNOUNCE IT BEFORE THE NATIONAL MEDIA.

  39. To All Bloggers:

    For now I just want to share with what I’ve seen in ABS-CBN’S The Probe Team last night.

    January 2, 2008

    ABS-CBN, Probe Team – 20th years Episode

    In this episode, I did not help myself to cry. The tears in my eyes were come out fast, while I am watching the story of Victor Lacar. A 30 years old man who experienced a lot of hardships in life. His story described how poor our country is, how hard for an ordinary person to reach his simple dreams.

    If we look deep in his story we can find a very old reason why there’s like them, “LACK OF EDUCATION” OR “UNEDUCATED AT ALL”. Victor as I’ve observed from what I’ve seen in this episode has potential to succeed.

    Victor has a simple dream, but sad to say there’s always a wall to block this dreams. One example of this is: somebody gave a small capital fro him to start a sari-sari store. He manage it good, he work hard to roll the money, but there’s part of his family that competing in asking share from him. He is earning from it for just P500 per day! He still is trying to roll over the capital. What will happen if the capital was gone? That’s why Victor want to give up his dreams. He said to himself, “Talaga sigurong eto na ang tadhana ko”.

    For me he contributes a big part in this world. He is the living proof of how the Filipino People striving from hardship’s in life, how we keep on dreaming of simple things that for some it’s impossible to happen. But most of all Victor Lacar is become a MIRROR Of Filipino attitude, that is already a TRADEMARK, never forget to SMILE and LAUGH or TO MAKE LAUGH OTHERS even we are experiencing a lot of hardships. He proudly said when he still a kid. “I LOVE PHILIPPINES” And Victor’s marked since he was a kid his very natural and simple SMILE!

    In this Story we will see how important our life is! It doesn’t matter if we are poor or rich, if we are successful or not, if we are happy or sad, if we are professionals or not, if our family are complete or broken, WHAT MATTER’S MOST IS WE ACCEPT OF WHAT WE HAVE AND WHO WE ARE, TO FACE THE REALITY OF LIFE THAT WE ARE JUST HERE IN THIS WORLD TO COMPLETE THE COLOR’S AND DO OUR INDIVIDUAL TASK THAT GOD GAVE SINCE BIRTH, GIVE MEANING OF WHY GOD CREATE US!!! AND THAT IS TO CONTINUE OUR LIFE WITH GOD WHATEVER HAPPENS!!

    I hope that you see the good side of this story. It’s very disappointing that Victor is experiencing this kind of life. two decades of his life was full of hardship’s. Theres a lot more like Victor Lacar, but why?

  40. Interesting that the one who routinely calls an adversary Illegitimate, gay, brain-damaged, traitor, delusional, terrorist and more, and calls a former governor a murderer with no basis, who cynically exploited the death of a good man for personal gain, thinks he has any dignity to retain.

    Glenn Chong has answered nothing. He says he knows my real personality as if that is something negative, as usual making accusations without rationale, without explanation.

    All of you who think Glenn Chong is a good person are mistaken. He throws terrible accusations at others with no foundation, yet he cannot answer the simplest questions about his own actions.

  41. kudos to our young congressman for his sincerity in serving the biliranons. i am so happy to hear that projects had been lining up for the year 2008 already. supalpal gyod ang mga espina if the congressman can indeed deliver

  42. Puta Talkative 47,

    Ipokrito kang dako. Wa pa ni labot sa imong pagka racist ug pagkatamayan.

    Ayaw pagpanaway sa muta sa ubang tawo, kay naay usa ka bagul nga uling diha sa imong agtang, nag-awas nga sip-on ug kugmo sa imong ilong, ug nagkayabkayab nga dahon sa kamunggay sa imong ngipon.

    Wala ka matunghi nga diha ka na sa TV kagahapon, unya ka pa gayud karon?

    Kanang dili gusto motigo, unya magpaka buta-bungol lang, wala ko mamugos sa inyo. Wa bitaw balaud dinhi nga magpaila ang bloggers. Pero nganong molit-ad man ug medyo matighan. Bisan nang btaw variation gihapon na sa Baston (as in bowtow). O di ba, pareha gihapon mo?

  43. Gimini 46

    A very nice post, Gimini, thanks. There are a great many questions asked/issues raised by this very simple story. Despite the difficulties in making changes, Victor and the hundreds of thousands like him deserve better for their efforts. He may have a smile, love the Philippines and all the other good things but he is barely keeping his head above water. When misfortune strikes what can he do? To whom can he go? When there’s no money in your pocket, are the friends and family you’ve helped still around?.

  44. Rep Glenn 43

    Sir, you may be humble, and rightfully so, not
    to credit yourself about those GSIS missing checks,
    but “little concern” from everyone like you really
    goes a long long way.
    Your concerns notwithstanding of political affiliations just shows there a GOOD HOPE for the people in the coming
    days ahead.
    Again, you may be new to the political arena(attacked if
    attacked first but with dignity and respect), but what you have done so far is beyond compare to 10+ years of
    administration of same old guards. We need new blood and brain for better life.

    Carry on, sir, with your 2008 goals.
    We know there is a lot of work for you to do.
    Please don’t forget to update us the completion of circumferential road.

    Thanks.

    ps: I thanked then angry now putative who joined me to
    wish everyone a “BULAHANG BAG-ONG TUIG”. May we ask
    positive accomplishments so far from your party side?

    Any nice suggestions to make life better in the community?
    Any COMPROMISED legislations without grandstanding or
    appear to be excessive to the local businesses or considering “kontra partido”?
    If there is a way for you to do that in your nice englishy way, then you and I and everyone here will have, as you said, “receive the happiness we deserve”….So please give us that nice feeling. Thanks in advance.

  45. PUTATIVE 47

    I HAVE A FAIR IDEA WHO YOU ARE. BUT IF YOU ARE BRAVE ENOUGH TO COME OUT IN THE OPEN YOU SHOULD DO SO. HOW CAN WE GIVE PROBATIVE WEIGHT TO YOUR SELF-SERVING FLIMSY ARGUMENTS IF YOU HIDE BEHIND THE CURTAIN OF ANONYMITY. ANY PERSON WHO IS NOT AFRAID ABOUT HIS ASSERTIONS SHOULD COME OUT IN THE OPEN AND FACE HIS ADVERSARY LIKE A REAL MAN.

    NOW I CHALLENGE YOU TO COME OUT AND WE DISCUSS WHATEVER YOU LIKE TO DISCUSS. I WILL GIVE YOU THE BENEFIT OF MY REPLIES ONLY IF YOU COME OUT OTHERWISE I WILL BE FIGHTING BLINDED FOLDED BECAUSE MY ADVERSARY HAS GOT NO BALLS TO FACE ME. I FACED YOU LIKE A REAL MAN WITH MY NAME PLASTERED UP ABOVE. IF YOU DO SO, THEN I WILL GIVE YOU MY TIME. IF YOU ARE SO COWARD ENOUGH AS YOU ARE NOW, THEN YOU DON’T DESERVE MY TIME. YOU ARE NOT MY CONSTITUENT ANYWAY.

  46. GIMINI 46

    THANKS MY FRIEND FOR HELPING OPEN THE EYES OF OUR PEOPLE TO THE SAD REALITY THAT POVERTY IS WIDESPREAD IN OUR COUNTRY. IT IS INCUMBENT UPON THOSE PEOPLE IN WHOM THE DESTINY OF MANY RESTS TO WORK FOR THE LIBERATION OF THOSE SUFFERING ABJECT POVERTY.

    CONCERNED 48

    I WILL NOT POST OR ANNOUNCE ANYTHING NGA DILI NAKO MADELIVER. THE TESDA SCHOLARSHIP IS ALREADY COVERED BY A SIGNED MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT. I WAS IN BILIRAN THEN WHEN TESDA SCHEDULED A VISIT TO CONGRESS FOR THAT PURPOSE. I HAD TO RUSH BACK TO MANILA JUST SO I CAN SIGN MY MOA WITH THEM.

    THE CHED SCHOLARSHIP IS COVERED BY A LETTER-REQUEST DIRECTING THE RELEASE OF 1 MILLION FROM MY PRIORITY DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE FUND.

    KKB 49

    OF COURSE PUTATIVE CANNOT UNDERSTAND YOUR POST UNLESS TRANSLATED TO OUR DIALECT BY YOU-KNOW-WHO. TAMA KA… THIS PUTATIVE IS RACIST. HE DOES NOT DESERVE TO LIVE IN OUR PLACE. RACISTS HAVE NO PLACE IN A CIVILIZED SOCIETY.

    PINOYISIP 51

    THANK YOU PINOYISIP. I HAVE OTHER PROGRAMS IN PLACE BUT AS I SAID, I WILL NOT ANNOUNCE THEM UNTIL AND UNLESS I AM SURE THEY WILL COME ABOUT. THERE ARE OTHER THINGS I HAVE DONE WHICH I DONT SEE FIT TO ANNOUNCE. SUFFICE IT TO SAY, THOSE INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS I HAVE HELPED KNOW WHO DID IT FOR THEM.

    I HAD A MEETING WITH SOME DPWH REGIONAL OFFICIALS THIS AFTERNOON. AGAIN, I EMPHASIZED THE URGENCY AND IMPORTANCE OF HAVING CONCRETED CIRCUMFERENTIAL ROAD. TRANSPORT CONNECTIVITY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT IN MY AGENDA FOR A BETTER LIFE FOR OUR PEOPLE.

    OUR PROJECTS FOR EACH AND ALL BARANGAYS (THE FIRST 100 BRGYS TO REQUEST), REGARDLESS OF ELECTION RESULTS, WILL BE BID OUT ON 15 JAN 08. EACH OF THE FIRST 100 BARANGAYS WILL GET 100,000 IN INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS FROM FARM-TO-MARKET ROADS, WATER SYSTEMS, MULTI-PURPOSE BUILDINGS, AMONG OTHERS.

  47. Glenn Chong routinely calls people names without explaining any rationale or justification. Now he calls me racist, with zero explanation. This seems to be his only argumentative technique – malicious name calling. Glenn Chong is the one who says poor people are stupid – a form of racism. See his post #4.

    Be direct to whom you trying to point out!!! I don’t care who you are….you are not capable in making me undignified. maybe it’s you!!! Sad very sad, people like you are just KSP!!!! KULANG SA PANSIN!!! ASK YOUR VERY GOOD FRIEND WHAT I MEANT?

  49. Puta Talkative 53,

    Ako ang unang nagtawag sa imo ug racist, ug ningsunod lang sila anonymous, si GC ug uban pa. Akong gi qualify ang una nakong pagtawag sa imo ug racist. Unya akong gihubit ug otro ang akong mga basihanan, per your request. Wala pa diay i translate sa imo? Kalooy sab nimo uy.

    Wa gyud diay utang buot ang mga tawo nga imong gi saburnohan aron makapadayon sila ug tagawataw sa radyo.

    Hoy! Ron, Bikini, Turbo, Men?Darna, Ran Online, hain na man mo? I translate na ni ngadto kang Puta Talkative!

    Tingalig makaingon ka nga name-calling ni ha? Dili uy, nagdala lang sa papel isip usa ka punster, ug gamit nako ang inyong mga alyas nga gigamit. Dry wit ni, understand?

  50.

    No I don’t get you.
    What is your rationale for calling me racist? Several people have jumped on this bandwagon, including Glenn Chong with not a word of explanation. Seems to be a common argumentative technique in his neighborhood. Don’t know what to say? Just call the adversary bad names. Maybe you all should try a school in a different neighborhood, start about 3rd grade level.

    January 4, 2008 8:57 PM

    Ambot kung tinuyo ba kaha ni niya. Natungod gayud siya sa magic number sa demonyo, ang 666 … he, he, he! Natakdo na gayud ang sima sa iyang ikog. :) Marka Demonyo gayud diay ni siya, unya pauro anghel ra ba.

    Nangutana pa gayud siya ug unsa ang basihanan sa pagtawag sa iya ug racist. Pero basaha ang katapusang sentence, siya ra pod ang nagtubag sa iyang pagka racist ug pagkatamayan. Paeskwelahon kono tang tanan ug balik sa Grade III. :)

  52. Glenn Chong 52:
    The only reason you want to know who I am is so you can launch vile, malicious personal attacks, which you are doing anyway by calling me racist with no explanation. Name-calling is the only way you know to debate. Maybe if you knew my name you could have your father incite people to cut off my ear like he did to JDR. In what way is logic dependent on identity? Or is logic a concept unfamiliar to you?

  54. Puta Talkative 59,

    Ako ang atubanga kay ako ang nagtawag sa imo ug racist. Ug gihatagan ta ka ug hinubit nga rason bahin niini. Ayaw ug tulipsay didto sa laing tawo.

    Maayo lang diay mang insulto ug motamay ug daghang mga tawo dinhi sa Naval ug sa Biliran, unya balusan ngani ka, adto ka mobanghag sa kongressman. Nganong dili man pod nimo banghagon ang gobernador? Kay pareho mo dili taga Naval ug taga Biliran?

    Kung dili ka mohatag imong ngalan, palihug hatag sa imong credential. Kay ngano ba, ikaw ray nakaeskwela ug logic?

    Kay Grade III ra man para sa imo ang mga naabot sa nagtakuban nga mga bloggers dinhi, dili ka na lang unta magpatakas ug uro Ininglis dinhi. Pahilayo na lang ug ayaw pagsinamok dinhi.

    May God bless and keep Putative far away from us!

    Mao nay akong New Year blessing para sa imo, numero 666. Ininglis na ha?

  55. MAAL 57

    YOU OWE ME NOTHING MY FRIEND. I SIMPLY DO WHAT I HAVE SWORN TO SERVE. IT IS MY DUTY TO SERVE YOU IN THE BEST WAY I KNOW HOW. SALAMAT SAD KAAYO NIMO.

    YOU SEE, OUR PEOPLE SHOULD BE WATCHFUL OF THE ESPINAS. THEY ARE PLANNING A COMEBACK IN ALL POLITICAL POSTS OF OUR PROVINCE FROM CONGRESSMAN, GOVERNOR AND MAYORS. THIS IS HELL OF A FIGHT AGAIN TO KEEP OUR PROVINCE FROM FALLING INTO THE HANDS OF A GREEDY CORRUPT FAMILY.

    PUTATIVE 59

    THIS COUNTRY IS NOT LIKE THE ONES YOU MAY FIND IN AFRICA OR SOUTH ASIA WHERE THE RULE OF THE MOB MOST OFTEN PREVAILS. THIS IS A COUNTRY OF LAWS AND NOT OF MEN. EVEN IF YOU ARE A FOREIGNER, INTERNATIONAL LAW AND MUNICIPAL LAWS OF THE PHILIPPINES APPLY GUARANTY AND PROTECTION OF YOUR HUMAN RIGHTS AS A VISITOR.

    YOU THINK THE PEOPLE OF OUR ISLAND CAN BE INCITED TO CHOP-OFF YOUR EAR IF MY FATHER SAYS SO? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF OUR PEOPLE? SOME KIND OF A PRIMITIVE VILLAGE THAT ANY VILLAGE HEAD CAN ORDER TO DO HIS BIDDING? THIS KIND OF COMMENT COMING FROM SOMEONE LIKE YOU GIVES US A REASON TO BELIEVE YOU ARE A RACIST. YOUR COMMENT REEKS OF RACISM. THEREFORE I DONT NEED TO EXPLAIN WHY I CALLED YOU A RACIST… YOU ALREADY EXPLAINED IT TO US BY YOUR OWN POST.

    SO UNLESS I KNOW WHO I AM DEALING WITH, UNLESS YOU HAVE GOT ENOUGH BALLS TO FACE YOUR ADVERSARY… YOUR ARGUMENTS ARE NOTHING BUT WORTH THE TRASH BINS.

    DONT HIDE BECAUSE COWARDICE REWARDS YOU WITH NOTHING BUT SHAME AND DISHONOR. SO, IF YOU CONTINUE TO HIDE, THEN YOU HAVE NO BALLS.

  56. Rep. Chong:

    THATS WHAT PUTATIVE NEED!!! I AM VERY WELL THUMB’S UP BY THE WAY YOU REPLY HIM. AT LEAST PUTATIVE HAS NO WAY TO SAY HE IS INSULTED BY YOU….. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! SALUTE FOR YOU MY FRIEND!!!!

  58. North America 64,

    Nahayagan gayud nimo ang $64 question. 1 + 1 = 2 na ni ang gawas ani karon.

    Bitaw no, ang isda naa gayud makawil sa baba. Dunay naghinambug sa usa ka blog nga kauban kono si Dok Rabbit ug si Charo Santos, ang producer sa Malala na Kaya sa ABS-CBN, sa pag schooling o seminar sa Boston, USA. Unya sa wala madugay, ningbisita si S.G. sa North America Bureau sa ABS-CBN, nagpa interview ug nag akusar kang Bishop Bactol ug sexual molestation. Wa uroy siya matuk-i sa iyang gibuhat pagbalikad sa akusasyon. Nakahinumdum pa man ang mga taga Naval sa kaso nga pedophilia kontra kang S.G. dinhi, nga maoy nakapa deport ug naka blacklist sa iya isip usa ka undesirable alien.

    Maayo seguro pod ni i-report sa FBI ang posibilidad sa fund transfer ngadto sa bank account ni Darna, nga ka alyado sa mga Bandido, gikan kang Puta Talkative o sa iyang organisasyon. Tungod kay morag gigamit man ang pundo sa pagtagawtaw sa radyo kontra sa atong mga bag-ong tagdumala sa gobyerno dinhi sa Naval ug Biliran ug sa usa ka propesor nga peryodista, imbes nga igasto sa mga proyektong pang relihiyon o social action, morag dunay illegal dinhi nga nahitabo.

    Hinuktuki ni ninyo Darna, Puta Talkative, ug Dok Rabbit, nga pulos dili lumad nga taga Naval. Wa mo mag alangalang ug pang-atake dinhi sa amo. Gilanggikit ninyo ug pagpakadaut ang usa ka kongresman, propesor nga peryodista, ug obispo, gamit ang foreign aid. Hala mo!

  59. ellow po sa lahat ng bloggers!!wala na bang magandang pag usapan dito kundi ang mga problema nalang sa biliran?wow naman 2008 na magbago na po kayong lahat!!!!gising..gising,,gising pow mga kababayan…to glenn chong i heard from one of your bodyguard about the road project..dont worry he is my cousin…napag usapan lang namin ang tungkol sa kalsada papunta sa caibiran..nag papasalamat ako,,,na mabibigyan na ng panahon ang road na yan…ilang beses na ako muntik bumangga sa mga batong malalaki dahil nasa gitna ng kalsada..hope na tuparin u ang mga pangako u!!!goodluck glenn and happy new year to u!!!

  60. YOU KNOW RGC HERE IN CANADA THE SITUATION REGARDING POLITICS IS DIFFERENT. AFTER THE ELECTION THEY WILL SUPPORT WHOEVER THE WINNER . UNLIKE IN OUR COUNTRY PARTICULARLY IN OUR PROVINCE. HOW COULD WE DEVELOPED OUR PLACE? HOPEFULLY THAT CRAB MENTALLY WLL BE MINIMIZED TO OUR PEOPLE ESPECIALLY TO THE LOOSER. SORRY MY ENGLISH IS NOT GOOD

  61. Glenn Chong 62:
    So you admit your father incited violence against a person. I’m sure you know as a lawyer, that this is against the law. So I ask that you as a high-ranking public official do your duty and ask the police to arrest your father.

  62. Let me get this straight. You say I’m a racist because I think it’s a bad idea to incite violence. You say that obviously Filipinos are too sophisticated to allow their thinking to be influenced by malicious ranting such as that. If that’s true, then why do you do so much malicious ranting and name calling if you know Filipinos are too smart to be influenced by it? It seems to me by treating Filipinos as if they cannot think for themselves, you are the one disparaging a race.

    FYI – Inciting violence is a crime, and a malicious thing to do, virtually everyplace in the world, regardless of race or cultural sophistication.

  63. MAAL 67;

    I agree that in Canada and the U.S. people usually avoid harshly criticizing a public official once elected, in the interest of joint effort toward goals. This is as long as the elected official has at least a certain degree of decorum and responsibility. Such has also been the case in the Philippines in the past. But – if an elected official starts calling his opposition vile and malicious names without rationale, accusing the opposition falsely of orchestrating things he doesn’t like, making unfounded accusations of murder, inciting violence, then the opposition should and will speak up. I didn’t say anything for a long time after the election, to give Glenn Chong a chance to be a decent person. But his continued vile malicious invective on the radio was just too much to be tolerated by a civil society.

    If you think Glenn Chong is the good guy in this, you are mistaken. Never in memory in the Philippines has an elected official continued to attack the opposition so harshly and maliciously after the election. If someone criticizes back – with good foundation – he acts like he is being persecuted unfairly, as if he has done nothing.

  64. Puta Talkative 68,

    Nagbinata ka na man uy! Nagpakita ka lang nga dili ka Pinoy, nga mga hinggamit kaayo ug figure of speech.

    Sumala, sa diri ka pa sa Naval, klaro man sa mga dokumento nga nanlimpiyo ka ug pusil sa mga batan-on. Sabton ba ni nato nga illegal touching, aw illegal possession of firearms diay ka? Dili seguro ka musugot, di ba?

  65. KKB 71:

    You clearly think I am someone I am not.
    You consistently speak as if you know about things you do not know, and so does Glenn Chong. How responsible is that?

  66. MAAL 67

    AFTER I WON, FROM 14 MAY TO THE 3RD WEEK OF JUNE, I SHUT UP. NEVER DID I GO TO THE RADIO STATION TO ATTACK MY POLITICAL OPPONENTS ALTHOUGH ABOUT A WEEK AFTER THE ELECTIONS, JUN DEL ROSARIO AND GERRY ESPINA WERE BACK ON AIR LAMBASTING ME AND THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH.

    PUTATIVE (ALL POSTS)

    LOOK AT YOUR ARGUMENTS. SOUNDS LIKE JUN DEL ROSARIO. FLIMSY. BUT IM NOT SUPRISED… YOU ARE RELATED TO HIM. BIRDS OF THE SAME FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER. GOT NO TIME FOR YOUR RANTINGS!

  69. North America 74:
    This has nothing to do with me.
    Why do you put my screen name on this post?
    You also make vile accusations with no knowledge.

  70. Puta Talkative 72,

    Punga-punga ka na ani karon (sige ipa translate una ni kang Men?Darna).

    Kadtong ako tigo-tigo lang to, pinaagi sa pagkilatis sa imong posts dinhi sa blogs. Karon nia na si North America nga dunay insider knowledge sa inyong “destabilization moves.” Ambot unsay buot ingnon ani kay, sumala nimo, usa man ko sa Grade III ra ang naabot, unya dili kahibalo ug unsay logic.

    Dili ko usa ka relihiyoso nga tawo, pero dili ko buwaon. Apan ikaw, nga usa man unta ka ka relihiyoso nga kanunay mubungat ug pulong sa Diyos, buwaon kang dako. Nabuklo ka na naman, mongisi ka na lang unta, unya moingon .. he he he sakpan ko :)

  71. Glenn Chong 73:

    Glenn Chong says his attacks on the radio were in response to attacks on him. Notice that Glenn Chong makes no reference to the substance or validity of the comments against him, as if that doesn’t matter. He only says that someone said something bad about him so he feels a right to say something negative back. he thinks it doesn’t have to be rational.

    Does GC think his opposition has no right to criticize him? Does whatever might have been said about him give Glenn Chong the right to call his adversaries illegitimate, gay, brain-damaged, traitor, stupid, delusional, mongoloid, murderer, and more? I would assert that what was said about GC was rational, not name-calling, and his reply was not rational – it was purely malicious name-calling, apparently the only technique he knows.

  72. I BELIEVED ALL YOUR WORDS BECAUSE EVEN IN YOUR RADIO PROGRAM I FOLLOW EVERY SATURDAY THROUGH INTERNET MR. RGC YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENT IN SIX MONTHS TIME IF WE TAKE COMPARISON REGARDING LAWS THE ESPINA THEY CAN’T DO IT IN TWELVE YEARS. IM VERY PROUD TO HAVE A REPRESSENTATIVE LIKE YOU,YOU ARE A REPRESSENTAVE OF THE PEOPLE OF BILIRAN NOT IN A SINGLE FAMILY. KEEP YOUR GOOD WORK MR. RGC MORE POWER TO YOU MAY THE GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS. THANKS

  78. Mosamot na ni karon pagbahag ang ikog ni Puta Talkative, kay naa nanginlabot na ang mga former seminarians sa Palo seminary sa debate sa atong blog. Si Osmund Orlanes, usa ni ka advertising executive, ug si Jun Cinco sa Inquirer, gamit na ang ilang ngalan sa panginlabot.

    Matira na ani karon ang matibay, ug duna nay matumba ani nga kamada ug mga diskarte.

    Ang nakaparat lang aning tanan kay kung maipit na ngani ni si Puta Talkative, mo plea dayon ni ug insanity, pareha sa gibuhat niya sa una. Pero dili gad tuho buang, kung basihan ang iyang mga blogs dinhi. Kulanto lang (sige Men?Darna, i translate dayon ang meaning ani).

    Maayo bitaw ipa imbestigar ni tanan, labina ang kalabtanan ni Darna ug sa mga Bandido (apil si Pugak ug Dok Rabbit) niini nga demolition job kontra kang Bishop Bactol ug pila ka mga tunog nga pagkatawo sa ato. Basin tibway makita ang katag.

  81. Puta Talkative,

    Diay usa ka komentaryo didto sa usa ka thread bahin sa imo:

    “The accuser has no credibility. He has more fingers pointing at him than to the accused. The media should have checked the source before publishing his allegations otherwise it is pure sensationalism…”

    Wala pod kay integrity makig debate dinhi uy. Nanghagit ka ug debate nga nag-ingon nga qualified ka manaway. Pero sa pagpangayui sa imo ug credential, ning-uklo ka. Credential pa lang ha? Wala pa ang ngalan.

    Unya kinsa man ang imong mga gipandaut ug gipang insulto dinhi? Mga tawo nga dagko ang katungdanan sa sosyedad – kongresista sa Biliran, obispo sa Simbahan Katoliko, ug award-winning propesor ug peryodista. Between them and you, kinsa may tuuhan sa mga tawo? Of course, dili ka. Bisan pa ug paluyuhan ka ni Men?Darna, Pugak, Junior Bak, Dok Rabbit, uban pang mga Bandido Estranghero sa Biliran, ug sa classmate kono ni Dok Rabbit nga producer sa Malala na Kaya sa TV.

    It is plain and simple. You did not have an iota of credibility and integrity to make your accusations here.

    Ininglison na lang ni nako basin dili translateton ug iyot ni Men?Darna.

  82. KKB 88:
    I have said about ten time that you seem to think I’m someone I’m not. I have had nothing do to with the media or with allegations about sexual misconduct, and I know very little about the Bishop. If you can’t discredit me, then sling mud at someone else and claim that person is me. I must admit thats a pseudo-argumentative technique that is new to me.

    Question: What does integrity (or credibility) have to do with credentials? It is a mistake of the uneducated to think that titles and level of education are a measure of of a person’s worth. I have known many well-educated people who had very low level of integrity & morality, and lots of uneducated people with a high level of integrity. If you attack my integrity, then I challenge you to say what I have done that lacks integrity. I have attacked the integrity of Glenn Chong and Dr. Borrinaga, and I have said very specifically why. Now you attack my integrity because you think I am not as well educated as another. You are simply displaying your own ignorance and bad intentions. You are calling the sky purple in the hope that someone who cannot see will believe you.

    To sling mud without foundation, as you and Glenn Chong and his other acolytes do, is a clear sign of lack of integrity or morality. On the other hand, to point out the malicious acts and mis-statements of another is an act of responsibility and integrity.

  83. Puta Talkative,

    Puyo na ta dinhi uy. Dili lang kay karon ko nakahimamat ug multiple personality sa Internet. Duna pay uban sa nanglabay panahon.

  90. Glenn Chong 93:
    You wish you could dismiss the charges against you. I think not so easily. Maybe if you speak in Chinese it will be more difficult to understand.

    northamerica 97:
    If the bogs are short now, thats because what needs to be said has been said for the most part, and there has been no meaningful response. So what else is there to say except the things that have been said? You criticize me for talking too much, and now you criticize me for not talking enough.

  91. About a recall election:

    A recall election is not properly a means for an elected official to simply remove his opposition, and it is not responsible or honorable to treat it this way. What politician or supporter of any party anyplace would not like to simply have the opposition removed? To think that’s a reason for a recall is not just naive but malicious. A recall petition has got to contain serious, substantive, credible charges and allege that an elected official is incapable of doing his job – not that you disagree with him – and the Comelec has the responsibility to verify that. It’s obvious in this case that the desire to recall comes before the naming of the charges. (“Well gee, Glenn, I’m sure we can come up with something to say in a petition.”) The mere fact that you have now called for a recall without specifying charges will be evidence against your intention, an indication that the recall was not a result of the charges but the other way around.

    Glenn Chong, this shows how irresponsible you are, and how poorly schooled in legal matters. I think you don’t give Filipinos enough credit to see who you are.

    A recall has never succeeded in the Philippines. The Comelec has the responsibility to verify and question every signatory on the petition, to see that they understand and agree with the charges, that they were not improperly influenced, and much more. This isn’t about doing a recall, it’s about finding a way to excite people and malign the opposition with no foundation. I.e. the effort implies there is a basis for a recall when there isn’t.

    There is much more to say about a recall, but let’s just summarize by saying this talk of a recall is a sick joke.

    2. “You do not make the poor richer by making the rich poorer.”

    4. “Foreign relations is an open book— generally a checkbook.”

    5. “There is no surer method of economizing and saving money
    than in the reduction of the number of officials.”

    6. “Men’s common guise is always to lay the burden on some other back.”

    7. “Economists think the poor need them to tell them that they are poor.”

    8. “If ignorance paid dividends, most Peoples could make a fortune out of what they don’t know about economics.”

    14. “The more is given, the less the people will work for themselves and the less they work, the more their poverty will increase.”

    15. “In general, the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one party of citizens to give to the other.”

    16. “There is just one thing I can promise you about the outer-space program: your dollars will go farther.”

    MY OFFICE WILL BE DISTRIBUTING AGRICULTURAL INPUTS (ORGANIC FERTILIZERS) TO OUR FARMERS WORTH ROUGHLY 1.4 MILLION PESOS OR ABOUT 4,000 BAGS IN THE COMING DAYS. IM WAITING ONLY FOR THE COMPLETE DELIVERY BECAUSE SO FAR, ONLY 1,000 BAGS HAVE BEEN DELIVERED THIS WEEK. I AM WAITING FOR FURTHER DELIVERIES NEXT WEEK. THESE FERTILIZERS WILL BE DISTRIBUTED ABSOLUTELY FREE. NO REPAYMENTS IN ANY FORM, NO CONDITIONS, NO STRINGS ATTACHED.

    I STILL HAVE A BALANCE OF ROUGHLY 250,000 PESOS THAT I PLANNED FOR THE PROCUREMENT OF DOMESTICATED ANIMALS THAT WE WILL USE FOR BREEDING PURPOSES AND EVENTUAL DISTRIBUTION/DISPERSAL TO OUR PEOPLE. IF I CANNOT IMPLEMENT THIS PLAN (KAY DAGHAN NA KAAYO AKO PLANO AND IM ONLY ONE WITH A FEW STAFF), I WILL USE THE REMAINING BALANCE TO PROCURE ADDITIONAL AGRICULTURAL INPUTS LIKE FERTILIZERS ALSO FOR DISTRIBUTION.

  100. glenda, bai inday, wa la tay bihagay!!! fair play lang sa politika, hugaw inyo taktika!!!! utrohon nako wa tay bihagay!!! kbwo nka unsa ako buot ingnon.

  101. Gimini 101:
    Yes, I know there’s a lot of unfounded malicious statements about me. But I welcome that because it only reveals the nature of Glenn Chong and his acolytes, which is part of my intention. BTW, you should expand your vocabulary a bit. “Stupid” is getting boring.

    You say I am being used by “the Evil Dynasty”. You know – if Glenn Chong were really against Graft and Corruption and approached it responsibly, I would support him. But how can you support someone who will say whatever evil things pop into his head about others for his own gain? Certainly you cannot deny GC does that.

    You speak of being seen in the eyes of God. How do you think God feels about people who make unfounded accusations of murder for personal gain? or about people who call their adversary illegitimate, traitor, brain-damaged, demonic and more just because it’s a damaging thing to say? and there is much more. If you are concerned about how you are seen by God, I think you are on the wrong track.

    And your note about dirty politicians (#104) – I presume you sent Glenn Chong an engraved copy.

  102. Baliling 109,

    Unsa man ni alyasa nimo uy, variation man gihapon ni sa Men?Darna. Buklo ka na pod dayon.

    Dili bitaw ka muuyon anan bihagay. Ang imong ampay mao ang ihaway. Di ba mao man nay inyong gibuhat sa mga sunoy nga inyong gi-raid didto sa Atipolo? Gisabong ninyo sa karaha ang mga sunoy nga mas pinangga pa sa mga asawa sa ilang tag-iya.

    Mao ni hinuktuki Baliling. Dili lang ang sayop nga panagna sa pagbuto sa bulkan ang imong bantayan karon, kon dili ang sayop usab sa paghigop ninyo sa sabaw sa mga sunoy nga iburuwang.

    Para sa mga tawong inyong giligis, dili lang ni bihagay. Puwede na pod ni ihaway. Sanglit panghapin-hapin na lang mo.

  103. GI### NA NI. LABOT LA NGA GOBERNADOR NA SIYA, SI DOK RABBIT NA POD KONO ANG BAG-ONG CHIEF SA BILIRAN PROVINCIAL HOSPITAL. KINSA MAY NAG APPOINT SA IYA? SIYA RA POD SEGURO.

    DAGHAN SEGURO KAAYONG TAGUUNON O TABUNANAN SA HOSPITAL, MAO NGA NANGUNAY NA ANG GOBERNADOR PAG PANGULO NIINI. UNSAON KAHA NIYA PAGMANI OBRA PAPELES SA P23-M GHOST HOSPITAL PROJECT; AND OVERPRICED NGA ULTRASOUND UG X-RAY NGA WALA PA MAGAMITI, ELECTRIC BEDS, DENTAL CHAIR, UG UBAN PANG MINARO DIHA?

    ABANGAN!

  104. Putative:

    Really Boring???? S T U P I D ! S T U P I D ! WHAT EVER YOU SAY I DON’T CARE!! I WILL GOING TO EXPRESS WHAT I KNOW BASE IN MY OWN EXPERIENCE, AND BASE OF WHAT IS THE TRUTH THAT SEEN BY MY NAKED EYES AND OBSERVED!!!

    YOU THE MEANING OF STUPID? MAYBE YOU DON’T THATS WHY ITS BORING FOR YOU!!! BUT FOR IT HAS A BIG IMPACT IF SOMEBODY TOLD I AM STUPID…YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE I AM NOT STUPID!! STUPID MEANS YOU DON’T HAVE ANY IDEA OF YOUR OWN, YOU DON’T HAVE A DECISION OF YOUR OWN….MEANING YOU CAN’T SAY SOMETHING WITHOUT GETTING ANY IDEA FROM OTHERS. DO YOU THINK STUPID PUTATIVE….PEOPLE OF BILIRAN DON’T KNOW HOW TO ANLYZE WHY THE EVIL DYNASTY WAS BEING A SUSPECT IN MURDER OF LATE GOV. PARILLA? DO YOU KNOW THAT? AS WHAT I TOLD YOU EARLIER, EVEN YOU WILL GOING TO USED DEEP WORDS TO MAKE THE EVIL GOOD, STILL THE BILIRANON KNOWS EVERYTHING, AND THAT IS WHAT THE TRUTH. YOU CANNOT MAKE THE BLACK A WHITE AND NEVER YOU MAKE RIGHT THE WRONG. MAYBE YOU CAN MAKE THE WRONG WROST….GET ME?????

    AND DON’T QUESTION MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, BECAUSE YOU DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT!!! ONLY GOD WILL GOING TO TELL ME AND SHOW ME THE TRUTH…..AND I BELIEVED THE TRUTH IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW…NOW IF YOU CAN’T ACCEPT THAT, THEN IT’S NOT MY PROBLEM!!!!

    BUT AT LEAST I HAVE MY OWN DECISION, I HAVE MY OWN IDEA, I HAVE MY OWN BRAIN, THAT CAN ANSWER YOU IN ALL WAYS. AS LONG AS I HAVE KNOWLEDGE TO WHAT ISSUE YOU ARE TRYING TO OPEN.

  105. Gimini,

    Pasagdan lang nato ni si Puta Talkative nga ma-bored ug mang huy-ab dinhi sa blogs, tungod kay wa gyud makasabot sa kasagaran nga mga sinuwat dinhi. Wa pod ayoha pag translate sa iyang mga sinuhulan.

    Apan sa atong mga Freedom Fighters, naghikihiki na ta sa atong kalingawan dinhi. Samtang ang mga Bandido, ug ang mga bloggers nga ubos sa pusod ang mga alyas ug mga hilig, naghikab-hikab sa pag inatang kung unsa na pod nga isyu ang mobuto dinhi.

    Kantiyaway ra ang kasagaran natong gibuhat dinhi. Pero para kang Men?Darna, bihagay na kono ni. Nagpakita lang siya sa iyang kahadlok kung usay bawos sa ilang gibuhat nga ihaway ug mga sunoy ug buwangay ani sa karaha.

    Mao nay dili fair play. Bisag unsaon, wala gayuy dag-anan ang sunoy kontra sa karaha. Labina ug dunay pusil ang mga nag-ihaw ug naghigop sa sabaw.

  106. FYI to biliranisland.com bloggers,

    I observed that Putative uses the word “acolyte” several times in his blogs. The word acolyte is used to describe a person who assists in liturgical services.

    We can easily deduce JDR as Putative based on the fact that JDR does not have a very good command of the English language. C’mon we’ve heard him during the campaign and read his posts.

    Isn’t it very obvious who Putative is? CLUE, this person went to the media recently to throw senseless accusations against Msgr. Bactol.

  107. Putative 100
    All Bloggers

    Posting the provisions of the Philippine Local Government Code to guide the discussions among bloggers on the issue of “Recall”. I guess the overriding concern is the “loss of confidence”. The mechanics are outlined below.

    THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT CODE
    OF THE PHILIPPINES

    CHAPTER 5. – RECALL

    SEC. 69. By Whom Exercised. – The power of recall for loss of confidence shall be exercised by the registered voters of a local government unit to which the local elective official subject to such recall belongs.
    SEC. 70. Initiation of the Recall Process. – (a) Recall may be initiated by a preparatory recall assembly or by the registered voters of the local government unit to which the local elective official subject to such recall belongs.

    (b) There shall be a preparatory recall assembly in every province, city, district, and municipality which shall be composed of the following:

    (1) Provincial level. – All mayors, vice-mayors, and sanggunian members of the municipalities and component cities;

    (2) City level. – All punong barangay and sangguniang barangay members in the city;

    (3) Legislative District level. – In cases where sangguniang panlalawigan members are elected by district, all elective municipal officials in the district; and in cases where sangguniang panlungsod members are elected by district, all elective barangay officials in the district; and

    (4) Municipal level. – All punong barangay and sangguniang barangay members in the municipality.

    (c) A majority of all the preparatory recall assembly members may convene in session in a public place and initiate a recall proceeding against any elective official in the local government unit concerned. Recall of provincial, city, or municipal officials shall be validly initiated through a resolution adopted by a majority of all the members of the preparatory recall assembly concerned during its session called for the purpose.

    (d) Recall of any elective provincial, city, municipal, or barangay official may also be validly initiated upon petition of at least twenty-five percent (25%) of the total number of registered voters in the local government unit concerned during the election in which the local official sought to be recalled was elected.

    (1) A written petition for recall duly signed before the election registrar or his representative, and in the presence of a representative of the petitioner and a representative of the official sought to be recalled, and in a public place in the province, city, municipality, or barangay, as the case may be, shall be filed with the Comelec through its office in the local government unit concerned. The Comelec or its duly authorized representative shall cause the publication of the petition in a public and conspicuous place for a period of not less than ten (10) days nor more than twenty (20) days, for the purpose of verifying the authenticity and genuineness of the petition and the required percentage of voters.

    (2) Upon the lapse of the aforesaid period, the Comelec or its duly authorized representative shall announce the acceptance of candidates to the position and thereafter prepare the list of candidates which shall include the name of the official sought to be recalled.

    SEC. 71. Election on Recall. – Upon the filing of a valid resolution or petition for recall with the appropriate local office of the Comelec, the Commission or its duly authorized representative shall set the date of the election on recall, which shall not be later than thirty (30) days after the filing of the resolution or petition for recall in the case of the barangay, city, or municipal officials, and forty-five (45) days in the case of provincial officials. The official or officials sought to be recalled shall automatically be considered as duly registered candidate or candidates to the pertinent positions and, like other candidates, shall be entitled to be voted upon.

    SEC. 72. Effectivity of Recall. – The recall of an elective local official shall be effective only upon the election and proclamation of a successor in the person of the candidate receiving the highest number of votes cast during the election on recall. Should the official sought to be recalled receive the highest number of votes, confidence in him is thereby affirmed, and he shall continue in office.

    SEC. 73. Prohibition from Resignation. – The elective local official sought to be recalled shall not be allowed to resign while the recall process is in progress.

    SEC. 74. Limitations on Recall. – (a) Any elective local official may be the subject of a recall election only once during his term of office for loss of confidence.

    (b) No recall shall take place within one (1) year from the date of the official’s assumption to office or one (1) year immediately preceding a regular local election.

    SEC. 75. Expenses Incident to Recall Elections. – All expenses incident to recall elections shall be borne by the Comelec. For this purpose, there shall be included in the annual General Appropriations Act a contingency fund at the disposal of the Comelec for the conduct of recall elections.

  108. Glenn Chong 107:

    You say I don’t make sense. I only say that you tell malicious, evil lies. You cannot deny that you do. No sense or logic involved, just a statement of fact, a description. You have not denied the specifics, in fact you have demonstrated it here with some very bad unfounded name-calling and irrational defense of your exploitive charges of murder. I can understand you want to disparage me, but that means nothing.

    Gimini 114:

    What is the truth you say you have seen with your own naked eyes? Perhaps you have seen Glenn Chong tell malicious lies?

    You say it would have a big impact on you if someone called you stupid, because you are not stupid. I say if you know you are not stupid, then why would it bother you? Only if you fear you are stupid would the insult have weight. If someone called you a tree, how would you react? You know you are not a tree, so it wouldn’t bother you.

    No one has said anything substantive about why Espina should be a murder suspect. Making such accusations with innuendo as you do is immoral.

    Concerning what you say about God showing you the truth. I would suggest you’re not listening to God very well. How can you rationalize that what you defend is not evil?

  109. PUTATIVE
    kung tinuod ka nga sakto nang imong gipanulti, barogan nimo unya ayaw pag takoban kay sakto kaman kaha? panundog kang Atty, Chong di ba? T I N A L A W A N MAN DIAY NANG IMO!!!!!!!! he! he! he!

    Ayaw mo ug piyait kung ang inyong mga taktika nga gigamit kaniadto mao nay gisumbalik sa inyo karong panahona. Kuwenta mopadala pa sa inyo warning kadtong mga tawo nga nagmata na ug dili na mutoo sa inyong haylo-haylo?

    I WOULD NOT BE TALKING TO HIM IF IN THE FIRST PLACE I AM NOT WILLING TO TRUST HIM. THE FACT THAT I TALKED TO HIM THAT MEANS I HAVE FAITH IN HIM. DILI KO TRAYDOR, SAMA NINYO JUN DEL ROSARIO.

    WHEN I GAVE MY WORD TO HIM… THAT’S AS GOOD AS DONE. I WILL STAND BY MY PROMISE. SO IF HE THINKS HE CAN TRUST ME, I WILL DO WHAT IT TAKES TO KEEP THAT TRUST.

    SORRY, BUT YOUR TACTICS WILL NEVER WORK ON ME!

  117. Glenn Chong 123:

    What I say about you is very serious and has much merit, and you know it. You have tried to answer, but you cannot, so you would like to dismiss what I say. Unfortunately for you, not so easy.

    I don’t understand how you cannot see that what you are doing is terribly malicious. It clearly indicates that you are not a good person.

    Again you call JDR a traitor (traydor). Perhaps you should look the word up in the dictionary, and then explain how you feel it is appropriate. I would say that by opposing you he is certainly acting in the interest of his country as he sees it. When I asked about this word before, you said because Jun pointed out that you were not an author of the bill on drug prices as you claimed (bill 1199). I suggest you also look up the word author in the dictionary. An author is someone who writes. Your party passed a resolution making all party congressmen honorary co-authors. So calling yourself an author was very misleading. Your party could pass a resolution declaring the sky purple, but that would not make it so, and your party cannot by acclamation declare that you did something you did not do. For you to use that to call yourself an author is quite disingenuous.

  118. Puta Talkative 217,

    Nia na pod ka ningbalik dinhi. Pagpuyo na uy. Bistado ka na kaayo.

    Hulat na lang, kay di madugay kana si JDR mo traydor na na sa imo. Kanang iyang bag-ong alyas, Balilmbing, padayag na na nga gusto siya mobalimbing. Ang problema lang niya karon kung hain siya molit-ad. Kay kana bayang iyang plano ug ambisyon nga Bandidohon, labot lang sa iyang kadagsa o kadayo nga insultador sa mga taga Naval, dili matulon sa mga Freedom Fighters dinhi.

    Wala ka man guy metaphor, ug laing pa dihang figure of speech, mao nga mora ka lang dinhi ug nagsumong-sumong. Dili ka makasakay sa mga estorya, ug dili pod hipno nang paghubad nga gibuhat sa imong mga sinuhulan nga translators.

    O sige, Men?Darna i translate na pod sa Puta Talkative.

  119. glenda

    tanawn nato i ba siya maglaway sa mga tawo nga iya gibiyaan, tingali ug magtulo iya laway, kaluoy niya nga nagpada sa haylo, wa siya nasayod sa iya gibuhat, nabutaan lang siya. we will be watching him, tanawn nato asa siya maabot.

  120. glenda

    kitaon nato ug di ba siya maglaway sa mga tawo nga iya gibiyaan, tingali magtulo iya laway, we will watch him, tanawn nato asa kutob iya katag.

    pikatan gyod siya sa iya mga kauban, hahaha! hohoho! nagpada sa mga way baroganan, ug mga way prinsipyo, pulos la pangaway nahibaw-an, karon taktika napod pagpanghaylo kunohay offer ug mga bisan unsa lang, mora sa gma taktika, promotional activities kunohay.

  121. ed garin 126

    You tell Glenn Chong not to mind the things said against him. But the main thing said is that he tells malicious lies, that he is very irresponsible in what he calls his adversaries, and that he exploited the death of a good man for personal gain and misrepresented the evidence in calling someone a murderer for personal gain.

    Do you think this is not true, or do you think it doesn’t matter? You and your friends have a very strange definition of morality.

  122. Baliling nga gusto na mo Balimbing 129-130,

    Luuya pod diay kaayo ninyo no? Gitalikdan na diay mo sa usa ka dakong tingag sa grupo Bandido?

    Sama sa una nimong mga alyas nga nagpakita sa imong hilig – Bikini, bahag, Tubo, Men?Darna – dunay buot ingnon ning imong bag-ong alyas. Dili ka lang gusto mobali, gusto ka gayud mobalimbing. Pero dili tingag ang gawas nimo. Kung agila ka karon diha sa mga Bandido, mahimo kang siwit ug motalikod ka sa ila. Sanglit patastas na lang diha, hangtud nga iluwa ka na nila.

    Pero mas pait gayud ni karon ug talikdan ka ni Puta Talkative. Labina kung masabtan niya nga tika balimbing ka na.

  123. Balimbing;
    mao na diay ne ila

  125. Baliling 134,

    Tua na, gitangtang na gayud ang letter L sa alyas. Balimbing na lang gayud ang nahabilin, hak-hak-hak-hik-hik-hik.

    Dili ngani ka makabarug sa imong alyas, sige ka lang ug lit-ad lit-ad, sa prinsipyo pa kaha? Uwata tits.

  128. Ed Garin 136:

    How can you say I have no evidence? I am just commenting on the terrible things Glenn Chong says. Can you deny he says these things as I describe. (I did not call GC a murderer. You must have mis-read. I said he cynically exploited a murder for personal gain.)
    If you are concerned about GC’s stress level, just ask him to stop doing the irresponsible things he does. I think being in jail will be even more stressful.

    You are right – I keep saying the same thing over and over. It is an important thing to say and no one has answered it. The reply to what GC supporters say is always the same. It I stop saying it, then your people will say they have won, as they distort almost everything.

IF YOU CONTINUE TO HIDE COWARDLY LIKE WHAT YOU DO NOW AND JDR AS WELL HIDING UNDER THE NAME BALIMBING… THEN YOU DON’T DESERVE MY TIME AND ATTENTION.

    SUFFICE IT TO SAY, LONG BEFORE THE PARTY ISSUED A RESOLUTION MAKING US CO-AUTHORS OF THE DIFFERENT HOUSE BILLS FILED BY PARTY MEMBERS, THE MAIN AUTHOR OF HOUSE BILL 1199, REP. DEL ROSARIO ASKED ME TO CO-AUTHOR IT WITH HIM. AT THE COMMITTEE HEARING, HE EVEN ASKED ME TO DEFEND THE MEASURE BECAUSE I AM HIS CO-AUTHOR.

    HERE’S MY PROOF. CHECK MY PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENTS IF I CLAIMED CO-AUTHORSHIP OF SEVERAL OTHER HOUSE BILLS COVERED BY THAT RESOLUTION. I ONLY CLAIMED 1199 BECAUSE IN FAIRNESS I DID CO-AUTHOR IT EVEN WITHOUT THE RESOLUTION.

    I WANT TO EARN A NAME OUT OF MY OWN EFFORTS AND BRAIN. I DONT RIDE ON IN THE WORK OF OTHERS. I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN SENT TO TAIWAN, AND NOW, NEW ZEALAND, IF THE LIBERAL INTERNATIONAL AND THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES LEADERSHIP DO NOT HAVE FAITH IN ME. THEY HAVE SEEN MY CAPABILITY. I AM WAY ABOVE YOUR MEDIOCRE JUN DEL ROSARIO. DREAM ON MAN! OR SHOULD I SAY, GET A LIFE!

  132. BALIMBING (JUN DEL ROSARIO) 129

    I KEEP MY PROMISE. I PROMISED HIM AND IT SHALL BE DONE. AND BY THE WAY, ASA NAMAN INYONG KIHA NAKO SA SUPREME COURT AND THE ETHICS COMMITTEE SA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES? IM WAITING.

    MEANTIME, IM GIVING MYSELF UP TO THE END OF FEBRUARY TO FILE ANOTHER CASE AGAINST GOVERNOR ESPINA. THAT WILL HAPPEN AS I SAID. BAWOS NI NAKO SA INYONG BINUANG KANG MSGR. BACTOL.

    TROJAN (JUN DEL ROSARIO) 133

    DIEHARD TO THE MAX KA! OF COURSE KAY IKAW GUD SI JUN DEL ROSARIO… KAILA NA MI NIMO DAY!

    I WELCOMED HIM BECAUSE I ALSO TRUST HIM. IF I PROMISE, I WILL KEEP IT. AND I ASSURE YOU, SIYA RA USA ANG AKO DAWATON BECAUSE MAGRECALL BAYA ME SA INYO, AND YOU ARE NUMBER 1 IN THE LIST.

    PUTATIVE 138

    YOU CAN POST ALL YOU WANT BUT IT DOESNT MATTER AND I DONT CARE. IF YOU ARE REALLY MAN ENOUGH, GO OUT AND IDENTIFY YOURSELF. DON’T HIDE LIKE A SHE-MAN!

  135. Just Curious 136,

    In fairness, si Aquarius to ang kompleto ug lista sa mga anomaliya sa mga Bandido. Naa pa dinhi sa blogs. Dili to ako.

    Rep. Chong,

    Duna na koy suspetsa sa una nga in-law o in-love ni si Puta Talkative ni Darna. Kung housemate ni sila, roommate pod o bedmate? Pero dili na man seguro ni kinahanglan klarohon dinhi.

    Pero disidido gihapon ta nga i report sa US Embassy kung duna bay fund traffic nga American Catholic money gikan kang Stephanie ngadto kang JDR bank account, aron atakihon si Bishop Bactol dinhi. Aron makita ang katag ni Puta Talkative ug ni Men?Darna.

  137. Baliling 146,

    Balimbing, Trojan, wa na! Tipa lit-ad na gayud ni ang tuyo ni Men?Darna. Kaso lang, kay dili gayud ka matulon diri sa luyo. Sa ako nang giingon, ang tingag nga ningbiya sa inya, morag tingag gihapon pag lit-ad sa luyo. Pero manundog ngani ka, kung agila ka diha nga mubo ug lupad, siwik ka diri pag abot.

    Na rattle ka na seguro karon, kay maluibon na man ning imong mga bag-ong alyas. Maayo pa, concentrate na lang didto sa ubos sa pusod, basin padayon mi pagkalingaw.

  141. Aquarius 117:

    Since you seem to be a learned person, maybe you would be kind enough to also post the relevant statutes here regarding libel, slander and defamation.

  142. Putative 151

    In as much as you have dealt with the issue extensively in your previous posts, I suggest that you post the penal provisions of the offenses you have enumerated based on jurisprudence.

    The bloggers will understand you more if you provide them with the legal basis of the issues you raised. At this stage, the trade of insults between parties have gone to a level that is no longer constructive.

    The only reason I posted 117 is to direct all bloggers towards discussions guided within the premise of the local government code. I hope that it will eliminate speculations; and that it will generate a more constructive exchange which will benefit the Municipality of Naval and Biliran as a whole.

    I guess, the ultimate result we would like to achieve is the betterment of Naval and Biliran. I consider any discussions which tend to benefit or disadvantage a certain personality, to be of personal in nature and as such, to be dealt with as a personal issue.

    I am only interested in issues that affect the Navalenos and Biliranons as a whole.

  143. Aquarius 152:

    I have not addressed the legal ramifications of Glenn Chong’s malice, only the moral issues. I do not claim to be a lawyer, but what he does is clearly slander by any reasonable definition.

    When I look under Philippine law sites they only have links to American legal definitions. In America, slander is a civil offense meaning you can’t go to jail for it, but I understand in the Philippines it is a criminal offense. Note the recent case in Cebu where a reporter was put in jail. Libel refers to printed defamation and slander refers to the same thing if spoken. In many places, media members have more latitude under the law – meaning that if you sue a media person you have to prove intent to harm, while for a regular person you only have to show disregard for the truth. (We should also investigate incitement.)

    I thought maybe someone like you who has the ear of a prominent lawyer, could locate the pertinent regulations more easily.

    You speak of a trade of insults, as if both sides are equally guilty. There is a significant difference. One side tells malicious lies, the other side does not. Do you think Glenn Chong’s level of integrity or his intentional unjustified harm does not matter?

    BTW, I have addressed constructive approaches in my post #1 here. Glenn Chong said he was not interested in my suggestions (his post #9). Apparently his solution for systemic corruption is to vote for him. I said elsewhere that as long as you see corruption as a province-level issue and related to specific personalities, you will be powerless, and you will be doomed to a series of corrupt officials. Of course the major problem with doing anything effective about corruption is that people are not against it. For example, an anti-vote-buying law with real teeth would not succeed because the people like being paid for their votes.

    I would welcome a higher-level discussion, but I don’t think the Chong crowd are capable of that. So prove me wrong.

  144. Puta Talkative 153,

    Ayaw ka na lagi pagtinagawtaw dinhi, kay sum-ol ka na kaayo, balik-balik balik-balik anang imong mga isyu, mora ka ug guba nga plaka.

    Ayaw na mi ug pagkinumbinsira kay mora ra ba ug hipno nang imong gilabanan dinhi.

    Moakusar ka sa among mga Freedom Fighters ug libel, slander, insult ug uban pa nga sala sa kalibutan (amen)? Sumala, pangispiho daw ug dili ba ni applicable sa imo ug sa kang Men?Darna, nga imong gilabanan.

    Balik-baliki lagi ni nga blogs gikan sa Part I, basin mahibalo ka kung kinsa ang nag-una ug pang libel, slander, ug insulto dinhi. Makatilok ka ug sobra usa ka tambak gikan kang Men?Darna ug sa Capitol gangsters, gamit ang nagkadaiyang mga alyas nila.

    Mo akusar pod ka nga mogamit mi ug vile names sa inyo. Sori no? Kamo ray naglit-ad lit-ad ug alyas, ang among paghimo lang ug kataw-anan. Pareha ani karon kang Darnang bag-o nga alyas, ang Trojan. Kuwenta, sabton na namo nga Trojan Horse sa Greek mythology nga gisudlan ug mga maluibon? Dili! Ang among pagsabot ana, Trojan Virus sa Internet, nga kinahanglan irokon ug puuhon. Virus pards, dili Kabayo.

  145. aquarius,

    kumusta na? dugay2x man wala na nako mabasa imo post. unsay latest sa pakigbatuk sa mga espina. pagka karon wa pa may nagtingkagul. hinam2x nko uy. hinaut aktibo ka pa.

    regards and godspeed

    god bless naval

  146. kana inyo gipanghambug nga opisyal, ang dalian ra pirmi mao pagpangiha, gukod ug tawo, panghadlok ug recall, ug unsa-unsa nalang, pero unsa man resulta, naa ba? kitaon nato successful ba mo sa inyo mga kihakiha, ug recall. we are waiting.

  147. Baliling 156,

    Kalooy pod nimo, nagkatulibag na man nang imong alyas uy! Nagpanagana ka na pagbalimbing?

    Kung gusto ka ug recall, huwat sa Mayo pohon. Moabot na lang na. Pila ra na ka presinto sa lungsod ang 25 percent sa total voters. Timan-i ni.

  148. Putative 153

    The issues are highly contentious and can only be resolved in the court of proper jurisdiction. As such, if you are determined to pursue the matter, it is best that you speak to the aggrieved party and let them file the necessary case for litigation.

    Unfortunately, this blog is not the proper venue for it. You can bring out the issue as often as you can, but it will remain to be a speculative matter. Frankly, it will be a waste of your time and emotion.

    Just curious, it seems the party you are fighting for does not seem to be posting on this blog to air his sentiments with as much vigor and passion as you do. Moreover, your posts seem to be unilaterally directed against Rep Glenn Chong.

    I have nothing against discussing issues in general on this blog. However, if the issue becomes too personal it will never reach a satisfactory conclusion here.

    I do admire the enthusiasm and passion you have poured out on this blog to defend the aggrieved party. You are an intelligent person and a well read at that.

    In the next days I will be posting issues that Navalenos and Biliranon need to address. I hope you can join me and the rest of the bloggers on an “issue based debate” for the advancement of Naval and the Province of Biliran.

    Although, the bloggers are advocating posting on the vernacular, I suggest that using the English language mixed with the Visayan dialect will allow Navalenos and Biliranons now living abroad to participate. It will be fruitful if the children borne and raised abroad and extended families by mixed marriages, will be given the opportunity to understand the issues debated on this blog. After all, they are Navalenos and Biliranons at heart.

  149. spartacus 155

    The fight to bring justice to Naval and Biliran has already shifted to the proper court. Previous posts from Rep Glenn Chong indicated that the case was filed on September 2007. At this stage, I think it is best to leave it to the court for determination.

    Maayo unta kung ato nang sugdan and diskusiyon sa mga issue nga gikinahanglan alang sa kauswagan sa atong lungsod ug probinsiya.

    I will be posting issues that I hope all bloggers can debate on and propose solutions, that we can then bring to the attention of the incumbent elected officials.

  150. salamat aquarius sa pagtagad ug pahibalo.

    mahitongud sa isyu sa kauswagan (labi nas naval), mouyon sab kos imong mga sugyot (sa imong nangaging blogs) labi na ang pagtukod ug mga pampublikong suruyanan (parks). morag usa nis mga kuwang diha sa atong probinsya. ang pag ugmad sab ug pag awhag pag apil sa mga kabataan sa natad sa sports (ambot unsay binisaya sa sports, hehe) mao unta kini ilang asikasuhon.

    kauswagan unta ang tuki-on dinhi, dili ang mga emosyonal ug mga walay kwentang lalis. adto unta sila s saktong lugar, bhala pag magtinigbasay ug pinusilay pa sila. mangatigbak man, maayo noun.

    pero unsaon ta man, tanan pwede dinhi sa blog (anything goes, matud pa).

    hala sige, dinhi lang sa ko kutob.

    ayu-ayo mo diha.

  152. Okay, bag-ong issue na pod nga puwede manginlabot ang mga Freedom Fighters.

    Tabangan nato ang mga rank-and-file sa Biliran Capitol nga makadawat sa ilang across-the-board 10% salary increase. Nganong tan-ugan man ni ni Dok Rabbit ug sa mga SP members nga dili man ni ilang kuwarta, ug gimando man ngani ni sa gobyerno. Kinahanglan makadawat usab ang mga taga Kapitolyo sa kulang nga porsiyento (7.5% ba to?) nga wala nila madawat sa 2007.

    Kung magdumili si Dok Rabbit ug ang SP, seguro kinahanglan na ni ug protest action, apil kiha kontra sa mga manhid nato nga elective officials sa Kapitolyo.

    Pero higutan una nato ug maayo dinhi. Agree or disagree?

  153. KKB 162

    I agree. For starters, let us take the example shown by Leyte Provincial Government. Please take particular attention to the paragraph on the payment of the salary differential of the 10% increase.

    PIA Press Release
    2007/12/16

    Leyte gov says P10k performance bonus to be released upon receipt of DBM circular
    Tacloban City (December 16) — Leyte Governor Carlos Jericho Petilla announced that the Provincial Government will release the P10,000 performance bonus to the Capitol employees as soon as the DBM Budget Circular to that effect is received.

    The Governor’s announcement was received with great joy by the Provincial Government employees who were caught by surprise, during their Christmas Party held at the LAC Gym in the evening of December 14.

    In his Christmas message, Governor Petilla stressed the important role the Capitol employees play in building a strong province through the perfomance of their respective work.

    Governor Petilla also announced that the the Provincial Government has already come up with the amount needed for the salary differential for all the 2000 Capitol employees. The salary differential the Governor was referring to was the 10% salary increase which was granted the government employees in July of 2007.

    Considering that the imposition of the salary increase was effected in the middle of the year, the local government units were allowed to implement said order depending on the availability of funds.

    Now that it is year end, the Provincial Government can already implement said order from its savings, Governor Petilla added. He also assured the employees that for the next fiscal year, the budget for the increase has already been incorporated and appropriated.

    Moreover, the Governor’s announcement that the members of the Provincial Association of Government Employees (PAGE) would also receive P4,000 anniversary bonus for each of its members, was received with a roaring applause.

    The job-order employees were not left out as the Governor announced that they will also receive a cash gift in the amount of P5,000 each, the same amount given to job order employees last year. (PIA 8) [top]

    tagawtaw na sad ka gabii no? pag kalu-oy sa mga pari!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    wala bitaw ka ilhi matod pa nimo, tinuod gyud moingon ka nga si kinsa ra gud si JUN DEL ROSARIO? usa ra ka ka konsehal pero
    si kinsa man si JUN DEL ROSARIO ug si GERRY ESPINA? mao

    ba? Ikaw ray samokan diri sa N A V A L

  155. Hasol paminawon ni si Jun labina karon balhin siya sa gabii. patyon na lang nako ang radyo basta sugod na siya tagawtaw aron dili ko mawad-an ug gana sa panihapon.

    sigi balibad dili siya anak o wala siya labot kay pahak ngano siya man kusog mobarog kang pahak!!!

    karon pari na sad ila tira….

    dugay ko nagserve diha sa Cathedral since grade three ko diha altar boys hangtud nag high school ko… bisan gamay wala ko duda sa kang Bishop Bactol biktima siya sa usa ka baga, kawatan, uhaw sa gahum, basta kung unsa ang definition kang SATAN duol na sila ana….

  156. Morag nahilom na unta ang blogs kay wala na magtagawtaw ang mga Bandido. Pero karon ningbalik na pod diay sila? Sa atong pa, managang na pod ta ani dinhi sa blogs? Na hala, kumbati na sab.

    Akong utrohon ang akong sugyot sa una. Nga i report sa US Embassy o sa FBI ang posibilidad nga gamit ni JDR ang kuwarta sa mga Amerkano nga Katoliko pinaagi kang SG aron atakihon niya dinhi ang mga pari sa Biliran. Kay usa kini ka criminal act. Ma trace man ni sa registro sa telephone o cellphone calls, bank transfers, e-mails, ug uban pa.

    Piho nga dili gikan kang Pugak ang kuwarta nga panggasto niini ni Darna, kay tihik ni sa ubang tawo. Labot lang kung tinuod ang giingon sa uban dinhi nga gikan sa iyang ut.n si Darna.

    Maayo seguro ug dunay taga Naval nga tua na nanimuyo sa US ang mo report niini. Dili ta puwede mo report kay dili man ta US citizen pareha kang Angry/ Puta Talkative.

  157. Sa tanan mga politiko,ayuha na intawon ninyo nang kalsada dinhi sa biliran guikan sa naval paduong culaba.I was there last year ma ola guihapon walay pag-usab sakit sa lobot og biyahe.

  158. Isip sugyot bahin sa atong highway, maayo segurong una ipa apura ni Rep. Chong ang pagpasemento sa kalsada gikan diha sa Lucsoon ngadto sa boundary sa Caibiran, kay mao gayud ni ang kinamautan ug kinabatsihan nga parte sa cross-country road. Gituyo seguro ni sa mga Bandido nga naghuwat ug naghandum nga ibaligya na lang sa ila ang mga yuta sa gagmayng mag-uuma diha sa may bukid-bukid tungod sa kalisod sa panakayan.

    Ang sunod mao ang pagpasemento sa Culaba-Caibiran nga parte, basin masumpay sa nasemento na nga cross-country road. Aron dinhi na moagi ang mga sakyanan gikan sa sidlangan.

    Unya, ipa kompleto na pod pag semento ang Cabucgayan – Biliran nga parte, basin malipay pod ang nga taga Cabucgayan.

    Pinaagi niini, makonektar na gayud ang mga poblacion ug kompleto ka sementado nga highway tipanganhi sa Naval ug tipangadto sa mainland.

    Bisan ug sa sunod na lang pod ang pagpasemento sa Kawayan-Culaba ug sa Caibiran-Cabucgayan nga mga parte sa circumferential road.

    Dili intawon ko dali malisang inday… As a matter of fact, in two instances may testigo nga ang kamot ni Gov. Roger Espina, niadtong nahitabo sa Cabucgayan ug karon lang bag-o sa Culaba, bugnaw kaayo… ila gud siyang gilamano pero bugnaw kuno kaayo ang kamot ni Dok Roger… ngano, nahadlok siya nako kay didto usab ko? hahahaha

    Wala ko mag-apas sa mga tawo sa Bandido Espina… im very contented with what i have for allies and friends… if naa man gani ko dawaton from the Bandido Espina… they are very special consideration… HE IS ONE SUCH SPECIAL CONSIDERATION. I TRUST HIM. ALAOT KA KAY IRECALL KA GYUD NAMO PAG-ABOT SA PANAHON.

    HELLO MY FRIEND! IM HERE IN MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA NOW. IM AT THE AIRPORT. I ARRIVED ABOUT 2 HOURS AGO. IM AT THE KORU LOUNGE OF AIR NEW ZEALAND WAITING FOR MY FLIGHT TO AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND. NADELAYED LANG AMO FLIGHT. INSTEAD OF 11.40AM, NOW ITS 1.00PM.

    I WILL BE TRANSITTING VIA SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA AGAIN IN THE EVENING OF 24 JANUARY ON MY WAY BACK TO MANILA.

    SORRY, I WAS INFORMED BY SPEAKER JDV THAT I WILL BE SENT TO NZ ONLY LAST WEEK. I DIDNT HAVE TIME TO SECURE EVEN A 72-HOUR TRANSIT VISA IN AUSTRALIA. I WOULD HAVE WANTED TO BUT THE VISA COULD NOT BE PROCESSED ANYMORE AS I WAS ALSO ATTENDING FIESTAS IN THE BARANGAYS FROM 14 TO 16 JANUARY. WALA NA JUD TIME. I STILL NEED TO SIGN THE APPLICATION AND SENDING IT VIA LBC TO NAVAL AND BACK TO MANILA IS NO LONGER FEASIBLE.

    MAYBE SA SUNOD NA SAD NGA OPPURTUNITY. I THINK MORE WILL BE COMING. I REALLY WOULD HAVE WANTED TO MEET YOU GUYS. NEXT TIME NA LANG. GOD BLESS.

    CHECK THE TERM ‘DEFENSIVE LIBEL’ BEFORE YOU EVEN UTTER ANOTHER WORD. I MADE SURE THAT I CAN DEFEND MYSELF IN CASE PEOPLE LIKE YOU COMES AROUND. IM JUST WAITING FOR JDR TO START OPENING UP THE PANDORA’S BOX. I WONT START IT BUT IF HE DOES, I WILL SEE THOROUGH ITS LOGICAL CONCLUSION. AND BY THAT TIME, I WILL BE ABLE TO SEE WHO MY COWARDLY OPPONENT IN THESE BLOGS IS… HIDING LIKE A SHE-MALE, AM I NOT RIGHT?

    I’LL PROVE YOU WRONG ONLY IF YOU HAVE THE GUTS TO FACE ME. WE NEED TO KNOW WHO YOU ARE SO THAT APPROPRIATE WEIGHT TO YOUR ARGUMENTS CAN BE GIVEN OR APPROPRIATELY WITHHELD, DEPENDING ON WHO YOU ARE.

    REMEMBER, GITINUOD NAKO ANG PRESS CONFERENCE. REMEMBER, GIPAKIHA NAKO SI SABORNIDO FOR ROBBERY AND I TOLD MY DAD NEVER TO WITHDRAW THE CASE. I PROMISED YOU A RECALL AND IT WILL COME ABOUT. I PROMISED YOU ANOTHER CASE AGAINST YOUR GOVERNOR ROGER ESPINA, AND IT WILL COME.

    THE INTENTIONS OF PUTATIVE CAN BE GLEANED FROM HIS POSTS. I AGREE THAT HE IS SO PASSIONATE AND VIGOROUS AT DEFENDING HIS SO-CALLED AGGRIEVED PARTY. BUT HE IS AFRAID TO COME OUT AND EXPOSE HIMSELF AND FIGHT LIKE A REAL MAN BECAUSE HIS IDENTITY WILL DESTROY HIS OWN MASK, WILL EXPOSE HIS TIES AND HIS AGENDA.

  167. Rep. Chong 174,

    Okay man nang imong plano. Ang prinsipyo nga akong gustong ipaabot mao nga ang tanang poblacion sa Biliran dunay sumpay nga puro sementado nga dalan padulong sa Naval. Maka benepisyo kini sa pagbiyahe sa mga lumulupyo, sa mga negosyo ug sa atong turismo.

    Sayang nga mao ning prinsipyoha ang gibabagan sa mga Bandido Estranghero sulod sa 12 ka tuig. Apan dili pa ulhi ang tanan.

    Salamat ug hinaut nga nalamdagan usab ang ubang mga bloggers bahin hiining ditalyeha sa imong mga plano.

    Keep up the good work!

  168. Rep Glenn Chong,

    Well Done! Your presence in NZ is a manifestation of how the House and JDV looks at your great potential value to the country and it brings the Lone District of Biliran into focus.

    Your list of fund allocation is admirable and I hope it will soon translate into the much needed infrastructures.

    Gov Roger Espina needs to come out clean on the MOA with former Cong Gerryboy Espina Jr, especially, where the released funds are concerned.

    I supposed the time of reckoning has come.

  169. KKB 177

    YES, WE WANT EACH MIUNICIPALITY CONNECTED TO THE CAPITAL WITH GOOD CEMENTED ROADS MAO NGA ANG CULABA I-CONNECT NATO SA KAWAYAN, ANG CAIBIRAN I-CONNECT SA NAVAL, UG ANG CABUCGAYAN I-CONNECT SA BILIRAN. THESE ARE WHAT I HOPE TO ACHIEVED AT THE MINIMUM.

  170. Rep Glenn Chong 179

    It will be an excellent exposure for you and Biliran. By the way, while you’re at NZ, I suggest to look at their volunteer services: Fire Brigades, State Emergency Services, Ambulance Service. They have equally excellent systems that work. Their border patrol is excellent too.

    It will be worthwhile to observe their road markings, and traffic signs that Biliran may adopt to bring it up to international standards. Biliran needs to be seen as an international tourist destination and as such, adopting national and international road standards and signage will be a sensible way to go.

    Meantime, enjoy your stay. The Kiwis will surely give all Parliamentarians a warm welcome.

  171. godspeed glenn!

    u will be in my prayers for the success of ur plans for a better biliran.

    i hope our constituents wud realize that u r the kind of leader we need today. the more u express ur performance and intentions, the greater chance they wud realize. keep up d good work!

    YEP, THE KIWIS DID GIVE US A VERY WARM MAORI WELCOME! AND BADE US ALSO A VERY TOUCHING FAREWELL. I WOULD HAVE BROUGHT NOTHING BUT FOND MEMORIES OF THIS TRIP EXCEPT FOR TWO INCIDENTS I THINK DAMPENED MY INTEREST IN NEW ZEALAND. ITS A BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY AND I HAVE BEEN TO THE COUNTRYSIDES INCLUDING WHANGAPAROA, WHANGAREI AND MUTUAL VALLEY.

    (1) ACTUALLY MY FRIEND, I GOT STUCKED IN MELBOURNE ON MY WAY HERE FROM 7.40AM TO 9.00PM. AIR NEW ZEALAND IS SUCH A LOUSY AIRLINE. WE ARRIVED IN AUCKLAND AT 2.15AM OF MONDAY AND I HIT THE BED AT 4.00AM IN MY HOTEL. I HAD TO WAKE UP AT 8.00AM IN TIME FOR THE OPENING CEREMONIES.

    I THINK I SLEPT ONLY FOR 3 HOURS OVER A PERIOD OF 30 HOURS FROM MANILA TO MELBOURNE THEN AUCKLAND. HANG NA GYUD KAAYO AKO MATA I KEPT GOING TO THE LAVATORY TO WASH MY EYES. IM AT AUCKLAND INTERNATIONAL NOW ON MY WAY TO SYDNEY THEN MANILA. I HOPE THIS TIME AROUND WILL BE MUCH BETTER.

    (2) I ALMOST QUARRELLED WITH THE RUSSIAN DELEGATION AND THE HOST YESTERDAY BECAUSE WHEN IT WAS REP. RUFFINO BIAZON SPEAKING IN PLENARY, HE EXCEEDED THE TIME LIMIT OF 7 MINUTES AND WAS ABRUPTLY AND RUDELY CUT BY THE KIWI PRESIDING OFFICER. NO WARNING WAS GIVEN. BUT WHEN THE RUSSIAN AND THE SAMOAN SPEAKERS EXCEEDED THE LIMIT OF 7 MINUTES, THEY WERE NOT EVEN INTERRUPTED, THEY WERE NOT STOPPED. THEY WERE ALLOWED TO FINISH.

    I REALLY GOT MAD AT THIS SEEMING DISCRIMINATION AGAINST THE PHILIPPINES THAT WHEN IT WAS MY TIME TO SPEAK BEFORE THE DELEGATES OF 35 COUNTRIES, I BROUGHT UP MY COMPLAINT BEFORE THE PLENARY AND TOLD THEM THAT I WANT RULES TO BE FAIRLY APPLIED TO ALL. I BLUNTLY TOLD THE PRESIDING OFFICER OF MY OBSERVATION AND MY DEMAND THAT RULES BE APPLIED FAIRLY AND I TOLD HIM THAT I DONT WANT MY TIME OF 7 MINUTES DEDUCTED WITH THE TIME I USED UP IN MY DISCOURSE. AKO GYUD SIYA GIINGNAN THAT I DONT WANT MY TIME DEDUCTED AND I WANT THE FULL 7 MINUTES. HEHEHE. HE AGREED AND PROMISED TO APPLY THE RULES FAIRLY. DI GYUD KO PAALKANSE KAY ALAOT ATONG NASUD KUNG INGNON LANG TA ANA. I WANT THEM TO KNOW THAT THE PHILIPPINES EXPECTS AND MUST BE TREATED FAIRLY. BUOTAN LANG GYUD SI CONGRESSMAN BIAZON KAY DILI REKLAMADOR. REKLAMO GYUD KO. BUT NAHADLOK ANG NEW ZEALAND SA RUSSIA. TALAWAN MAN DIAY.

    Unfortunately, flight delays are all part of the trip woes. The benefits, however, outweighs the inconvenience.

    It is a milestone for the Lone District of Biliran to have its Representative, given the honor to deliver an important resolution before such an honorable international body of Parliamentarians.

    I hope you can maximize the opportunity to bring Biliran to the attention of other nations with a view to forging future economic relationships, technology sharing and possible funding schemes to finance your projects.

    Looking forward to reading the copy of the speech you have delivered on this blog.

    Well Done!

  182. Sagadahi lang nang mag tagawtaw ug negative bahin kang Rep. Glenn Chong kay bunga lang na sa kaawa…inggit lang sila. The best jud nang atong representative dinhi sa lone district of Biliran kay dynamic, intelligent, eloquent speaker undja daghan pa jud ug mga projects gani seven months pa lang siya sa iyang katungdanan pero outstanding na ang performance. Rep chong please don’t forget to pray and put God at the center of everything you do because I’m sure he will guide you always to the right direction.

  186. Quoted from a PIA press release found on the home page: “Biliran is beneficiary…”

    “Biliran province is the only province in the entire Visayas to benefit from the PGMA caravan as it belongs to the group 2 of the top 20 poorest provinces in the entire country.”

    I welcome the caravan to Biliran. However, this confirms, that indeed:

    “Biliran Province belongs to group 2 of the top 20 poorest provinces in the entire country.”

    That is courtesy of the 12 years of The Espina Dynasty’s rule in Biliran.

    This RE-AFFIRMS our previous claim during the election campaign that indeed, the Espina Dynasty has driven Biliran to being one of the top 20 poorest provinces in the entire country; while their treasures grew in leaps and bounds in their last 12 years of total control of the province.

    Former Congressman and Mayor Gerardo Espina Sr, should stop blaming everyone, especially the Church for his loss. The writing was on the wall.

    The job of lifting up the economic conditions of the Biliranons is in the hands of the newly elected incumbent officials. It is about time to work together with a common goal of advancing Biliranons interest, not the interest of the Espina Dynasty.

    In addition, the newly elected officials aligned with the Espina Dynasty should start learning how to stand on their own two feet and assert their independence. It is only in doing so that they will gain the respect of the Biliranons.

    Moreover, former Congressman and Mayor Gerry Espina Sr should stop from interfering with his children: Biliran Gov. Roger Espina , Kawayan Mayor Rudy Espina and Naval SB Member Councilor Roselyn Espina Paras and leave them alone to execute their own programs with the sole aim of advancing the interest of the Biliranons ,not use them as a tool for his vindictive and destructive politics.

    THAT IS THE CHALLENGE.

    Pasay treasurer suspended for 6 months over illegal wealth

    By Tetch Torres
    INQUIRER.net
    First Posted 12:08:00 01/28/2008

    MANILA, Philippines — A city treasurer was meted a six-month preventive suspension by the Ombudsman amid “strong indication” that the official was found “administratively guilty of dishonesty and grave misconduct” for accumulating unexplained wealth worth P14 million during her years of service.

    In a six-page order, Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez also said that Ofelia M. Oliva of the Pasay government is under investigation for other possible criminal liabilities.

    “From the facts and the evidence presented, there is strong indication that the respondent is administratively guilty of Dishonesty or Grave Misconduct, for having acquired wealth disproportionate to her lawful income, in the aggregate amount of P14 million,” Gutierrez said.

    She also directed Oliva to file a counter-affidavit within 10 days from receipt of the order.

    The case stemmed from a complaint filed by the Department of Finance–Revenue Integrity Protection Service (DOF-RIPS) before the Ombudsman.

    In its complaint, the DOF-RIPS alleged that from 1972 to 2006, Oliva filed her Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Networth (SALN) just once — for the year 2004.

    It also alleged that she “committed perjury when she denied under oath that she owned real property and motor vehicles.”

    The DOF-RIPS submitted documents to support its allegation that the respondent owned residential lots in Paradise Village, Kasambangan, Cebu City; Alviola St., Tejero, Cebu City; and a residential building at Alviola St. also in Cebu City.

    The complainant also furnished the Ombudsman documents from the Land Transportation Office (LTO) which showed that Oliva owned a 2004 Mitsubishi (YBR-261); 1996 Mitsubishi Gallant (GHW-158); 1994 Volkswagen (GBB-508).

    Assistant Ombudsman Mark E. Jalandoni of the Field Investigation Office (FIO) encouraged the public to immediately report to the Ombudsman any information about government employees or officials with suspected unexplained wealth thru the OMB Lifestyle Check Hotlines 927-4102 and 927-2404.

    He assured them that the Ombudsman would treat such reports with utmost confidentiality.

  193. This is only a very simple reminder for all of us. I just want those people who has everything in life that please share your blessings to somebody that is in your neighborhood who cant eat normally because of Poverty. Sana makita natin kung Gaano kahirap ang buhay ng sambayan. Sana yung mga taong nasa Posisyon na mas natutuwa na nakikitang naghihirap ang kapwa nila eh magising na!!!

    Sana makatulong sa mamamayan na may kaya na mabuksan ang kanilang mga puso at isipan sa pagtulong at pagdamay sa mga totoong nangangailangan!!!

    “Another severe warning for the corrupt officials.Pasay treasurer suspended for 6 months over illegal wealth.”

    Sadly it doesn’t seem to amount to much of a severe warning. If a ten-year jail sentence had been applied and on the face of it there appears to be plenty of evidence, then that WOULD be a warning to others.

    We all know however that she knows too much about the others around her and so she will just be ‘suspended’. Unless more severe charges are brought and justice is dispensed, this is in fact an encouragement not a warning to corrupt officials. Most people would trade a ‘suspension’ for P14 million in cash, tax-free.

  195. Bill Gregory 207

    The 6 months preventive suspension is just the start of the legal process not the end of it. The preventive suspension is normally imposed to prevent the erring official from interfering or using his/her position to influence the outcome of the investigation.

    Incumbent public officials and government employees need to understand that PGMA is under extreme international pressure to prosecute and present a decisive outcome in the fight to eliminate graft and corruption.

    As such, the latest development indicates that if a city Treasurer can be probed for violations of the Anti-Graft Law, other public officials and employees cannot take solace on the previous inaction and leniency of the government.

    I hope that Biliranons will keep their eyes open and have the audacity to report any anomalies that is driving Biliran to be one among the top 20 of the poorest provinces in the entire country.

  196. ERRATUM:

    The 6 months preventive suspension is just the start of the legal process not the end of it.

    Should read as:

    The 6 months preventive suspension is one of the important steps taken in the legal process , not the end of it.

  197. Aquarius 209/10

    Let us hope so, but forgive my being cynical. You can find laws and lawyers in abundance here, but searching for just a little justice takes time and lots of patience.

  198. Bill Gregory 211

    I agree. Unfortunately, past inaction and complacency of this government and previous administrations has resulted to their loss of credibility.

    The Biliran case is an action we have to watch, as this could be used by PGMA as her showcase to convince the international community that she is serious in her drive to eliminate graft and corruption before her term expires. It is a tall order, but she can get it started. That’s all we need, for Biliran to be used as an example.

    Let us hope for the best.

  218. Ombudsman sues governor in mining row

    http://www.manilastandardtoday.com/?page=news3_feb2_2008

    THE Office of the Ombudsman has approved the filing of criminal charges against Palawan Gov. Joel Reyes and an official of the local mining board over illegal mining on the island province.

    The two face graft and corruption charges for permitting the small-scale mining firm, Platinum Group Metals Corp., to extract more than 280,000 metric tons of mineral ore worth more than P565 million—way above the allowable annual production limit of 50,000 metric tons.

    In a resolution approved by acting Ombudsman Orlando Casimiro, the anti-graft body found probable cause to indict Reyes and Andronico Baguyo of the mining board for violating the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act.

    Their acts, the Ombudsman said, were also a direct violation of the Small-Scale Mining Act.

    If convicted, Reyes and Baguyo face imprisonment of up to 10 years, perpetual disqualification from public office, and forfeiture in favor of the government of “prohibited interest and unexplained wealth” gained from their unlawful acts.

    The graft case against Reyes and Baguyo stemmed from a complaint filed by an environmental group “Katipunan Para sa Kalikasan.”

    The Ombudsman said the respondents not only allowed Platinum to extract more than the 50,000 tons of minerals, but also consented to the use of heavy equipment in their mining operations.

    Also yesterday, the Ombudsman ordered the filing of criminal charges against a namesake of former President Corazon Aquino and an official of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, for allegedly conniving to corner a repair and renovation contract worth P1.3 million without bidding.

    Charges will be filed against Corazon Aquino, owner of Amiga Trading and Construction Co., and Anastacio Garabiag Jr., chairman of the prequalification bids and award committee of the environment department.

    The case stemmed from a complaint filed by the National Bureau of Investigation, which said the department, through Garabiag, had awarded five separate job orders to Aquino’s company, an unregistered firm.

    The Ombudsman said there was evidence that indicated a conspiracy in the awarding of the contracts. Joel M. Sy Egco

  219. Morag nagtikalawum na gayud seguro ang kaligutgot ni Dok Rabbit sa mga taga Naval human sa iyang biyahe ngadto sa States aron pag atender ug seminar on health management sa Harvard. Gilikaykayan diay kono siya didto sa mga taga Naval. In short, wala siya mahatagi ug maayong pagtagad sa daghan natong katagilungsod didto.

    Pero maayo ra gad pod seguro nga nakakita siya sa tinuod nga gibati sa mga Navalians sa iya. Dinhi sa lungsod, tungod lagi kay magpakita man ta ug maayong gawi, mapugos ta pagpahiyom kung ikatapo nato ang bisang kinsa nga Bandido. Apan didto sa States, sori na lang sila. Nakatilaw na lagi sila ug tinuuray nga kusmod sa taga Naval. Mirisi ra pod.

We want to know, why? we are here in Blogs because we want to voice the grievances that people of Biliran want to voice out.

    Mao na, kay subra sa iyang kahambog, bisan ug wala gi-aprove sa mayor kay daghan ug mga prohibited, gi-overide dayon sa SB without proper consideration. Maayo pa ang taga bukid nga SB, Primo Tambis nga didto lang permi sa iyang uma, naka sabot pa kon ngano nga wala aprobahi sa Mayor.

    Pwerte gyung lapara sa atay ni Monggol sa dihang na overide dayon kay maayo man niya pagka-uwat ang iyang mga kauban ug nagtoo pod siya nga iyang mauwat ang sa provincial level. Monggol gyud !!!!!!!

    Leyte town bids to become prime Visayan destination

    By RESTITUTO A. CAYUBIT
    Manila Bulletin 02/06/2008

    TABANGO, Leyte — The local government of this town is now offering tour packages to tourists, Mayor Bernard Jonathan Remandaban told reporters in an interview yesterday.

    Remandaban said that offering affordable tour packages to foreign and local tourists is one of his programs in promoting the tourism industry in his municipality.

    He added that in effect he is making his town as the gateway to island-hopping.

    The mayor disclosed that his program, dubbed “Wow, Tabango!,” is a holistic approach to promoting Tabango as the place of choice for tourists.

    Remandaban disclosed that for the island-hopping package, there are seven destinations which tourists can choose – the La Manok island, Carnasa island, Isla de Gato, Malapascua island, Kimund Seamount, Dawahon island and Higatangan island.

    It was learned that Malapascua island is the most frequented among the destinations. Malapascua island is considered as the “Little Boracay” of Daanbantayan, Cebu, with long stretches of white sandy beaches ideal for picknikers.

    Another frequented destination is the La Manok island known for its white powdery sand beaches, crystal clear waters, and unique rock formations.

  230. I have heard from a reliable source that NIT is now in preparation for a tourism Center to offer of wat Tabango had offerd…basin dako ni ikatabang sa local toursim industry sa Naval and Biliran as a whole….

    PHILIPPINE STATEMENT ON ‘CHILD LABOR’

    THANK YOU MR. CHAIR. DISTINGUISHED COLLEAGUES, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… GOOD AFTERNOON.

    THE GREAT CARTOON PIONEER WALT DISNEY ONCE SAID THAT “OUR GREATEST NATURAL RESOURCE IS THE MINDS OF OUR CHILDREN.” TRULY, HE WAS RIGHT IN CONNOTING THAT CHILDREN ARE THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY. YET, IN THIS POINT IN TIME, IT IS SO HARD TO PERCEIVE THE SIGHTS OF ECONOMIC PROSPERITY THROUGH THE EYES OF A LITTLE CHILD. ONE SUBSTANTIVE REASON FOR THIS IS CHILD LABOR.

    AROUND THE WORLD, OVER 300 MILLION CHILDREN ARE BEING FORCED INTO LABOR, ALMOST HALF OF THEM, INVOLVED IN HAZARDOUS WORKING CONDITIONS. IT MAY BE VALID TO SAY THAT POVERTY IS A CAUSE OF CHILD EXPLOITATION, BUT IT IS NOT THE ONLY CAUSE. STUDIES BY THE INTERNATIONAL LABOUR ORGANIZATION, THROUGH ITS GLOBAL REPORT ENTITLED “THE END OF CHILD LABOUR: WITHIN REACH,” REVEAL THAT ALTHOUGH LACK OF FAMILY INCOME PLAYS A PART IN NECESSITATING CHILDREN TO WORK, OTHER ISSUES ALSO COME INTO PLACE. IN OTHER WORDS, CHILD LABOUR IS NOT JUST AN ECONOMIC ISSUE, BUT CULTURAL AND LEGISLATIVE AS WELL.

    RECALLING THE DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS, WE HAVE AGREED THAT, AND I QUOTE, “THE CHILD, BY REASON OF HIS PHYSICAL AND MENTAL IMMATURITY, NEEDS SPECIAL SAFEGUARDS AND CARE, INCLUDING APPROPRIATE LEGAL PROTECTION, BEFORE AS WELL AS AFTER BIRTH.”

    YET, THROUGH THE EXISTENCE OF CHILD LABOR, WE RUSH THE MATURITY OF OUR CHILDREN. WE FORCE THEM INTO BECOMING AN ALTERNATIVE SOURCE OF INCOME FOR THE FAMILY, AND EVEN WORSE, DEPEND ON THEM AS BREADWINNERS. WE DO NOT ANYMORE SAFEGUARD AND CARE FOR THEM. THESE, THEY DO TO US.

    WE TOO HAVE CONCURRED, AT THE CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD IN 1989, THAT CHILDREN SHOULD BE PROTECTED FROM ECONOMIC EXPLOITATION AND FROM PERFORMING ANY WORK THAT IS LIKELY TO BE HAZARDOUS AND/OR A HINDRANCE TO THEIR EDUCATION, AND THAT THE STATES, UNDER THE PRINCIPLE OF PARENS PATRIA, SHOULD PROTECT THE CHILDREN FROM ALL FORMS OF SEXUAL EXPLOITATION AND SEXUAL ABUSE. TO ADD TO THAT, INCORPORATED IN ARTICLE 19 OF THE SAME CONVENTION IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STATE TO TAKE ALL APPROPRIATE LEGISLATIVE, SOCIAL AND EDUCATIONAL MEASURES TO PROTECT THE CHILD FROM ALL FORMS OF MALTREATMENT OR EXPLOITATION, INCLUDING SEXUAL ABUSE.

    HOWEVER, IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT OF THE UNICEF’S LATEST DATA, 126 MILLION CHILDREN ARE STILL ENGAGED IN HAZARDOUS LABOR, MOSTLY IN THE MINING AND AGRICULTURAL SECTORS OF SOCIETY. NOT ONLY THAT, EVERY YEAR, ESTIMATES AMOUNTING TO 1.2 MILLION CHILDREN ARE CONTINUED TO BE TRAFFICKED WORLDWIDE.

    WE DO NOT JUST ALLOW OUR CHILDREN TO BE EMPLOYED, BUT PERMIT THEM TO WORK IN DANGEROUS CONDITIONS, TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THEIR YOUTHFULNESS, INNOCENCE AND HELPLESSNESS TO THE EXTENT OF DEPRIVING THEM OF THEIR CHILDHOOD.

    DO NOT GET ME WRONG. AS MUCH AS I YEARN FOR CHANGES IN STATE POLICIES AND IMPLEMENTATION, I ALSO RECOGNIZE WHAT WE HAVE ALREADY DONE TOWARDS THE MITIGATION OF CHILD LABOR.

    THE INTERNATIONAL LABOUR ORGANIZATION REPORTS THAT CHILD LABOR HAS STARTED TO DECLINE. IT ALSO DECLARES THAT MORE AND MORE COUNTRIES, ESPECIALLY IN LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN, ACCOMPLISHED CONSIDERABLE PROGRESS IN THE ALLEVIATION OF CHILD WORKERS. MOREOVER, THE ILO’S INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMME ON THE ELIMINATION OF CHILD LABOUR NOW OPERATES IN 88 COUNTRIES AND COUNTING, WITH INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS, GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, AND PRIVATE CORPORATIONS BEING THEIR PARTNERS IN ERADICATING THIS GLOBAL PROBLEM.

    BUT NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO BE COMPLACENT. WE HAVE JUST STARTED GAINING AN EDGE IN OUR BATTLE AGAINST CHILD LABOR, YET WE STILL NEED TO DO MORE, A LOT MORE. I ASK THAT THIS BODY TAKE ON THIS MOMENTUM FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR CHILDREN.

    IN THE PHILIPPINES, WE HAVE EFFECTIVELY DRAFTED STIFF LAWS THAT SAFEGUARD CHILDREN FROM UNNECESSARY LABOR. ONE SUCH LAW, REPUBLIC ACT NO. 9231, ESPECIALLY FOCUSES ON ITS WORST FORMS. IT INCORPORATES REGULATIONS THAT STRICTLY LIMIT EMPLOYMENT OF CHILDREN BELOW 15 YEARS OF AGE, AS WELL AS RESTRICT THEIR HOURS OF WORK TO JUST EIGHT. ASIDE FROM THAT, THE SAID LAW ENTAILS THE CREATION OF A TRUST FUND FOR WORKING CHILDREN, WHICH ENABLES THEM TO PRESERVE A PART OF THEIR INCOME THAT CAN BE USED FOR THEIR EDUCATION, SOCIAL, MEDICAL AND LEGAL ASSISTANCE.

    WE TOO IN OUR GOVERNMENT, OFFER APPROPRIATE STATE INTERVENTIONS LIKE INCENTIVES TO OUR CHILDREN DILIGENTLY ATTENDING SCHOOL. ONE SUCH INCENTIVE IS THE FREE RATION OF RICE TO SCHOOLS, IN OUR FOOD-FOR-SCHOOL PROGRAM, OF DESIGNATED REGIONS OF OUR COUNTRY WHICH HAVE LOW SCHOOL ATTENDANCE RECORDS BECAUSE OF POVERTY AND CHILD LABOR. IN THE PROVINCE OF BILIRAN, THE LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT WHICH I REPRESENT IN THE CONGRESS OF THE PHILIPPINES, MY DISTRICT OFFICE IN COORDINATION WITH LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS AND PARENTS-TEACHERS ASSOCIATIONS, ARE SET TO IMPLEMENT A SCHOOL BUS SYSTEM FOR ECONOMICALLY-MARGINALIZED HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WITHIN THE YEAR. THIS SYSTEM AIMS TO FERRY STUDENTS FROM THEIR HOMES IN FAR-FLUNG VILLAGES TO THEIR SCHOOLS LOCATED MOSTLY IN MUNICIPAL CENTERS AND BACK TO THEIR HOMES FREE OF CHARGE. THIS WAY, WE ARE ABLE TO KEEP CHILDREN IN SCHOOL AND AWAY FROM THE TEMPTATION OF BEING FORCED TO WORK IN THEIR FAMILY FARMS BY MAKING PHYSICAL ACCESS TO SCHOOLS FAR EASIER AND AT THE SAME TIME REMOVING THE HIGH COST OF TRANSPORTATION IMPOSED ON THEIR PARENTS.

    TOGETHER WITH THESE, THE LEGISLATIVE FRAMEWORK OF OUR NATIONAL GOVERNMENT TOWARDS THE ERADICATION OF CHILD LABOR IS FURTHER STRENGTHENED BY THE FORTITUDE OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS AND OUR CIVIL SOCIETY IN MAKING SURE THAT LAWS ARE IMPLEMENTED, AND THE CHILDREN, PROTECTED.

    ALTHOUGH I MYSELF ADMIT THAT THESE ARE STILL NOT ENOUGH TO GREATLY DECREASE CHILD LABOR, THEY ARE, HOWEVER, TINY STEPS OF WHAT WE CAN DO TO MITIGATE, IF NOT ERADICATE, THE EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN IN OUR SOCIETIES. THESE ARE TINY STEPS… BUT IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION!

    AND SO AS A GLOBAL COMMUNITY, LET US UNITE AND WORK TOWARDS THE ALLEVIATION OF CHILD LABOR.

    AS PARLIAMENTARIANS, LET US ENACT STIFFER LAWS AND SEE THROUGH THEIR IMPLEMENTATION THROUGH OUR RESPECTIVE GOVERNMENTS, SO AS TO ENSURE THE SECURITY OF OUR FUTURE LEADERS AND CIVILIANS.

    AS CITIZENS, LET US BE VIGILANT IN PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF OUR NEXT GENERATIONS.

    AND FINALLY, AS PARENTS, LET US BE MINDFUL OF HOW WE CAN SHOW OUR CHILDREN THE PROPER CARE AND CONCERN THAT IS OUGHT TO BE GIVEN THEM. LET US LOVE OUR CHILDREN THE BEST WAY WE KNOW HOW!

    THANK YOU MR. CHAIR!

    Makati businessmen slam Lozada abduction

    By Ronnel Domingo
    Philippine Daily Inquirer
    First Posted 20:16:00 02/09/2008

    MANILA, Philippines — The Makati Business Club expressed its outrage Saturday over Rodolfo Noel Lozada Jr.’s abduction by police and lambasted authorities for insisting that it was his family that had sought the security forces’ protection.

    Describing Lozada as the “emerging star witness” in the national broadband network (NBN) project scandal, the MBC said it believed Lozada when he denied making such a request to the Philippine National Police.

    “We reject the PNP’s explanation [and] we condemn the use of the state security apparatus to suppress the truth,” the group of businessmen said in a statement.

    Lozada, the resigned chief executive of the Philippine Forest Corp. who acted as a NEDA consultant on the NBN project, said in a Senate hearing last Friday he was made to sign affidavits stating that he did make a request for police protection upon his return to the country.

    He also said Environment Secretary Jose “Lito” Atienza advised him to go to Hong Kong to avoid testifying in the Senate hearings.

    The MBC said the affidavits were meant to compromise Lozada’s intended testimony on the deal with ZTE Corp. of China.

    “Even if he was not threatened with physical harm, he was not free to do otherwise while under the control of unknown security personnel,” the group said. “[Lozada] was made an offer he could not refuse.”

    “We are deeply concerned about the continuing deterioration of the human rights record of the Arroyo administration,” the MBC added. “Lozada is fortunate that he is the focus of intense public attention, unlike many other unheralded victims of rights violations.”

    The MBC called on the public to be more vigilant “lest the freedoms denied of those few witnesses to the truth [regarding scandals involving the government] are also removed from all of us.”

    Also, the MBC said an estimated P21.1 billion may have been lost to corruption in 2006.

    The group cited a World Bank study titled “Combating Corruption in the Philippines,” which found that a fifth of government funds for projects in 1998 ended up as kickbacks.

    Findings of the study that were released in May 2000 may even be understated, the MBC said.

    Still, the MBC said that if 20 percent of public funds were being lost to corruption yearly, then the wastage from the national coffers would be P24.5 billion in 2007 and P29.5 billion in 2008.

    “The World Bank paper ties in with Transparency International’s Global Corruption Barometer 2007 Report that places the Philippines among the top countries most affected by bribery along with Albania, Cameroon, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Romania,” the statement said.

    In its paper, the World Bank said it analyzed a wide and significant body of information and published reports from local and international sources.

    “While our analysis so far confirms that corruption is a sizeable problem in the Philippines, it also reveals that progress has been made in the last decade in reducing opportunities for corruption through policy and regulatory reforms,” the report said.

  243. DILG PUMPS P107.6-M INTO PUBLIC HEALTH PROJECTS FOR POOR PROVINCES

    Date:Thursday, December 21, 2006

    The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) is setting aside P107. 6 million for a foreign-assisted public health project that aims to upgrade hospital equipment and improve the quality of medical care in 21 provinces and cities nationwide, Secretary Ronaldo Puno said yesterday.

    Puno said the Hospital Equipment Assistance Project (HEAP), which is funded by a P777.7 million ($14.9 million) grant from Spain, includes the purchase of diagnostic facilities, equipment for the emergency rooms, operating rooms, pediatric wards, laboratories and intensive care units of government-run provincial and city hospitals covered by this initiative.

    HEAP, which will entail a counterpart funding totaling P144 million from the local government units, also covers the acquisition of power generators, ambulance, computers and water pumps and the training of hospital staff on the operation and maintenance of equipment, Puno said.

    “We are hopeful that Spain will continue providing funds for the project, which we are fully backing with a counterpart fund of P107 million with an eye on providing better and more accessible health care services to people in the countryside,” Puno said. “The project will help significantly improve the delivery of services to poor families seeking medical care in public hospitals.”

    The project will benefit provincial and city hospitals in Abra, Ifugao, Kalinga, Quirino, Nueva Ecija, Aurora, Rizal, Laguna, Masbate, Iloilo, Negros Occidental, Bohol, Cebu, Siquojor, Biliran, Leyte, Samar, Zamboanga del Sur, Misamis Oriental, and North Cotabato.

    Under HEAP, the Spanish loan will cover the purchase of hospital equipment and training of medical personnel, while the counterpart funding from LGUs will pay for the operation and maintenance of the equipment after the two-year warranty period and other incidental expenses to be incurred in the implementation of the project.

    The DILG will provide funds for the payment of customs duties and taxes on the importation of the hospital equipment.

    During the hearing on the proposed P50.916-billion budget of the DILG for 2007, Senator Franklin Drilon, who heads the Senate finance committee, commended the DILG for implementing a project that will benefit government hospitals in the provinces. The Senate finance committee has endorsed the DILG’s request to appropriate P248 million in its 2007 proposed budget for the project.

    At the same committee hearing, ,Puno explained that under the project, 203 items totaling 415,000 equipment units will be provided to 21 hospitals. Portable x-rays and accessories, ultrasound, ECG, cardiac monitors, ventilators, defibrillators, incubators, stretchers, nebulizers, fetal dopplers, high speed sterilizers, and hospital beds will be provided to the beneficiary hospitals.

    The beneficiaries of this project are the Abra Provincial Hospital, Ifugao Provincial Hospital, Kalinga Provincial Hospital, Quirino Provincial Hospital, San Jose City Provincial Hospital in Nueva Ecija, Aurora Memorial Hospital, Rizal Provincial Hospital, Laguna Provincial Hospital, Masbate Provincial Hospital, Iloilo Provincial Hospital, Jose Locsin Memorial Hospital in Silay City, Alfredo Maranon Memorial District Hospital in Sagay, Garcia Memorial Provincial Hospital in Bohol, Cuenco Memorial Hospital in Malabuyoc, Cebu, Siquijor Provincial Hospital, Biliran Provincial Hospital, Leyte Provincial Hospital, Samar Provincial Hospital, Zamboanga Del Sur Provincial Hospital, Gingoog City Provincial Hospital in Misamis Oriental, and Cotabato Provincial Hospital in Kidapawan. ###

  244. Governance is broadly defined as the sound exercise of political, economic, and administrative authority to manage a country’s resources for development. It involves the institutionalization of a system through which citizens, institutions, organizations, and groups in a society articulate their interests, exercise their rights, and mediate their differences in pursuit of the collective good (ADB 1995).
    Governance embraces the affairs of a government and the proactive role of the private sector and civil society in national development. Governance is, thus, not the sole province of government. Instead, its functions are delegated to, or are assumed by, other institutions and organizations in the business sector and civil society (UNDP 1997b). A government’s concern with the sound exercise of authority underscores its ethical moorings. Thus, the basic elements of governance are accountability, participation, predictability, and transparency, which are also the key principles of sound development management (ADB 1995).
    Accountability relates to making public officials answerable to the citizenry for the actions and decisions of a government and ensuring that in the performance of their functions and their actions public officials are responsive to and faithfully safeguard the welfare and interests of the people. Promoting accountability involves establishing criteria to measure performance of public officials and institutionalizing mechanisms to ensure that these criteria or standards are met.
    Participation refers to enhancing the people’s access to and involvement in all levels and facets of policy and decision making, including facilitating processes of free and open dialogue and building consensus between a government and the people to ensure that development is pursued for, with, and by the people.
    Predictability relates to the consistent and equal application of laws, regulations, and policies. It involves establishing and sustaining appropriate legal and institutional arrangements to uphold the rule of law and maintain consistency of public policies and programs.
    Transparency refers to the availability and accessibility of information to the public and clarity of government rules and regulations. It ensures swift access to accurate and timely information about government policies, programs, and activities.
    Table 1 shows the basic elements and key dimensions of governance and specific areas of action.
    Good governance or sound development management identifies the roles of a state as (i) creating a conducive economic environment; (ii) protecting the vulnerable; (iii) improving government efficiency and responsiveness; (iv) empowering people and democratizing the political system; (v) decentralizing the administrative system; (vi) reducing gaps between rich and poor; (vii) encouraging cultural diversity and social integration; and (viii) protecting the environment.
    Table 2 presents the key milestones in promoting effective governance for each of the aforementioned roles.
    This assessment examines seven selected areas of governance to arrive at a sufficiently informed determination of strengths and/or weaknesses in government policies, institutional arrangements, organizational mechanisms, and operational processes that impact capabilities to attain accountability, participation, transparency, and predictability in governance. Insights derived in the process are used as indicators in appraising capabilities of government to fulfill its roles in the context of good governance or sound development management and in identifying strategic directions for reform.

    B. Rationale, Objectives, and Scope
    Without good governance or sound development management, many countries, especially developing countries, fall short in their poverty reduction efforts and in their quest for economic and human development. Bad governance is the reason why broad economic intervention strategies are unable to trickle down and effect positive changes in the quality of life of the people. The absence or lack of good governance is manifested by the persistence of graft and corruption and related administrative problems, such as overregulation and red tape.
    The promotion of good governance presents opportunities as well as challenges in bringing together the public sector, civil society, private sector, and community members in the tasks of evolving policies and programs and organizational and operational mechanisms and institutional arrangements that can effectively respond to the needs of the people, ensure the judicious and transparent use of public funds, encourage the growth of the private sector, promote effective delivery of public services, and uphold the rule of law. This assessment is an effort toward this direction.
    The document presents the results of a 2.5-month rapid assessment of the state of governance in the Philippines, focusing on the following:
    (i) general public administration and the civil service system,
    (ii) legislative system,
    (iii) public financial management,
    (iv) local governance and decentralization,
    (v) legal and judicial system,
    (vi) electoral system, and
    (vii) civil society participation.

  245. The most common (but often least effective) form of public participation is the public hearing. Here, government representatives give a presentation on a proposed decision, and then the public is asked to stand up and give short (1-3 minute) speeches indicating their thoughts on the proposal. Typically, only critics come to such hearings. Although the government agency can get a feel for the extent and nature of the opposition, public hearings rarely give a good indication of overall public opinion, nor do they yield good information about why people feel the way they do. Thus, they do not contribute effectively to problem solving or mutual cooperation.

    Other forms of public participation may yield more helpful information, but they are all slower and/or more expensive. Advisory committees made up of citizens can better measure public opinion, though they require a level of commitment from the members that few people can provide. Also, citizen members often have different values than expert committee members. These value differences often lead to infighting, which may detract from the committee’s effectiveness.

    Ballot initiatives are another form of public participation, which have greatly increased in popularity in the United States over the last decade. Ballot initiatives are proposed laws or constitutional amendments that are initiated and voted upon by the public, not by a legislative body. While the ability to act as a legislature gives the public much more power over public decisions, as the number of initiatives increases, more and more people are voting on things they do not really understand. In addition, ballot initiatives often oversimplify problems and do not weigh different priorities against each other. While a legislature may have to balance funding for education, health care, law enforcement, and other priorities, the public tends to look at initiatives on a case-by-case basis, without considering that choosing one thing may take away funds from something else. For that reason, ballot initiatives often do not yield effective remedies to problems, despite their popular support.

    Standards for Public Participation Processes
    The International Association for Public Participation lists seven standards for public participation:

    The public should have a say in decisions about actions that affect their lives.
    Public participation includes the promise that the public’s contribution will influence the decision.
    The process communicates the interests and meets the process needs of all participants.
    The process seeks out and facilitates the involvement of people potentially affected by the proposed decision.
    The process involves participants in defining how they will participate–thus how the process will be structured.
    The public participation process provides participants with the information they need to participate in a meaningful way.
    The public participation process communicates to participants how their input affected the decision.[1]
    Other standards, suggested by the Co-Intelligence Institute include:

    Involve all “relevant” parties.
    “Empower the people’s engagement”–in other words, get them feeling “involved.”
    Utilize multiple “forms of knowing.” This includes rational, scientific methods, narrative (story-telling methods), intuitive methods, etc.
    Ensure high-quality dialogue.
    Establish and on-going participatory process (as opposed to, for instance, a one-shot public hearing).
    Move from positions to interests, needs, and mutual solutions.
    Help people feel fully heard.[2]
    Public Participation in Practice
    Boulder, Colorado is a picturesque city located at the base of the Rocky Mountains. It is surrounded by miles of open space, purchased by the city at considerable taxpayer expense. While the Boulder citizenry has long supported the purchase and maintenance of open space land, there are many differing opinions about how it should be used. Some see it primarily as a recreational resource: they want to hike, bike, run, and observe nature in the wild foothill areas. Others see it as a buffer against further development. Still others want it to be closed to public use so it can be protected habitat for other species. These differences have led to serious difficulties for the Open Space Department.

    In order to deal with these conflicts, the department uses a variety of public participation methods: public hearings, an advisory committee, even referenda. These techniques have helped guide policy, although the strong division of opinion has hampered effective public decision-making. After rejecting advice received at public hearings and from an advisory committee, the Open Space Department tried a consensus-process with many (but not all) stakeholder groups to try to agree to a management plan for the city’s open areas. At this writing, the group did succeed in reaching a broad-based consensus, but it appears that the Open Space Board of Trustees does not agree with the consensus and may not implement it. If this occurs, years of public participation will have been undertaken in vain.[3]

    Even though public participation can slow the decision making process down, it is often legally required, and can avoid costly lawsuits at the other end if unpopular decisions are made without adequate public input.

    Another example from Boulder illustrates the dangers of not using public participation. In 1995, a new school board was elected in the Boulder Valley School District. This school board was politically very different from its predecessors. It was a much more conservative board, dedicated to improving the quality of teaching and student achievement. They planned to reverse many earlier decisions of past boards, which were seen to be politically correct, but ineffective when it came to achieving high test scores.

    Since this board was sure they knew what the problems were with the schools and what needed to be done to fix them, they tried to make as many decisions as quickly as possible, without involving the public any more than was absolutely necessary. They limited the number of speakers who could speak at board meetings, and limited the few who could speak to two minutes each. They voted on measures before they were supposed to, so people who were opposed to what they planned did not have time to respond before the decision was made.

    The result of this approach is that the community completely reversed itself in two years. The 1995 school board was almost entirely voted out of office in 1997, and a go-slow-and-carefully school board was elected in its place.[4]

    Public Participation, Democratization, and Civil Society
    Increasing public participation in governmental decision-making is also becoming a large part of democratization processes and the strengthening of civil society in regions trying to recover from violent conflict and/or to make a transition to a more democratic form of government.

    Public participation at the national level does not refer only to voting. It implies an open dialogue in which citizens have a voice in the decisions that affect them. International law grants the right to public participation. However, in a report from the United States Institute of Peace, Vivien Hart writes, “This right packs a moral punch but it lacks legal teeth and effective enforcement.”[5]

    However, even though governments may not be legally required to solicit public participation, it is often in their best interest to do so. Public participation can be a powerful tool for legitimizing a new government. Hart writes:

    A claim of necessity for participation is based on the belief that without the general sense of “ownership” that comes from sharing authorship, today’s public will not understand, respect, support, and live within the constraints of constitutional government.[6]

    A striking example of this is in Zimbabwe, where the government short-circuited their democratization process by failing to take advantage of public participation. In 1999, under pressure from opposition groups, President Robert Mugabe reluctantly established a commission to draft a constitution. From a distance, it appeared to be a model process complete with public hearings, an outreach program of town hall meetings and other community activities, a multilingual media campaign, scientific polling, and an international conference. But, in reality, the president’s party controlled the constitutional commission. The commission drafted the document and sent it to President Mugabe with no opportunity for further public comment. Mugabe quickly forwarded it for a referendum vote without possibility of amendment. The electorate rejected the constitution by 54 to 46 percent. Hart writes that, “immediately after the vote Lewis Machipisa editorialized in Africa News that this “‘no’ vote is also a ‘no’ vote against the arrogance that we experienced from the government. They didn’t treat us as people who mattered.””[7]

    The example of Zimbabwe illustrates a problem that is often seen with public participation in new democracies. Governments and institutions are capable of opening space for participation as a way to silence their critics. A report from the Institute for Development Studies-Participation Group warns of the “policy mirage, where the rhetoric around opportunities for policy change attracts many people to engage, but at the end of the day much energy has been spent and the policy is still eternally postponed.”[8]

    Hart writes, “Genuine public participation requires social inclusion, personal security, and freedom of speech and assembly. A strong civil society, civic education, and good channels of communication between all levels of society facilitate this process. Only a considerable commitment of time and resources will make genuine public participation possible.”[9]

    When seriously pursued, public participation can be remarkably helpful for democratization. The classic example of this is South Africa:

    In all, it took seven years, from 1989 to 1996, to achieve the final constitution… Throughout these years, outbreaks of violence threatened the process…From 1994 through 1996 the South African process became a full-scale demonstration of participatory constitution making. Until that time, the public had had no direct role in constitution making. Now their elected representatives in the assembly reached out to educate them and invite their views. The educational effort included a media and advertising campaign using newspapers, radio and television, billboards, and the sides of buses; an assembly newspaper with a circulation of 160,000; cartoons; a web site; and public meetings; together these efforts reached an estimated 73 percent of the population. From 1994 through 1996 the Constitutional Assembly received two million submissions, from individuals and many advocacy groups, professional associations, and other interests…[10]

    Many argue that this effective use of public participation smoothed South Africa’s transition from apartheid to democracy. Hart concludes, “At its best, participatory constitutionalism works and counteracts the arguments in support of elite negotiation as the sole effective mode. At its worst, as in Zimbabwe, it provides only another guise for the exercise of raw power.”[11]

  247. Improve the Capacity of LGUs to Raise Own Revenues
    Background
    The most important revenue source for local governments is the Internal Revenue Allotment
    (IRA) from the national government. The IRA amounts to approximately 70 percent of total
    local government revenue. Locally generated revenue for LGUs is derived from real property
    taxes, fees and other taxes, business taxes and licenses and receipts from economic enterprises.
    Opportunities exist for local governments to increase revenues from each of these sources.
    Some US $16.5 million were provided under the LOGOFIND project for consultancy services,
    contractual staff, equipment, supplies and training in support of the objective of improving LGU
    resource mobilization and monitoring. This includes a number of components designed to
    strengthen local finance capacity and to increase locally generated revenues. The project
    provides financing for the improvement of Real Property Tax Administration (RPTA) through
    tax mapping, records conversion and management, tax collection enforcement, and data
    computerization. Increased collection of business taxes, user fees, local enterprises and taxes and
    fees from private operators of local concessions were also to be targeted. Training of LGU
    officials in financial management could also be undertaken.
    Issues and Concerns
    The high level of dependence of LGUs on IRA is a major source of concern. The percentage of
    IRA to total revenues has not changed significantly in recent years. The problem with a system
    in which LGU revenue is heavily dependent on a national allotment is that the accountability of
    FINAL REPORT
    A Study to Revisit the LGU Financing Framework and its Implementation
    16
    LGU officials to their constituents for revenue and expenditure decisions is lessened. Local
    officials can act as if they are spending other people’s money, and avoid the hard decisions
    associated with raising revenues to cover local expenditures and justifying to the public the link
    between taxes and services.
    There is also a danger that the low levels of internally generated resources will impair the
    development of a true local government credit market. With the IRA remaining such a dominant
    part of total LGU revenues, financial institutions might make credit decisions based on the
    reliability of the IRA pledge rather than the underlying credit worthiness of the LGU and the
    viability of the project being financed. There is already evidence of this mentality beginning to
    emerge. The large concentration of LGU debt in the two government financial institutions
    compounds the problem and could undermine the stability of the LGU financing system.
    Much work remains in the important task of improving the capacity of LGUs to raise their own
    revenues. Capacity building is in part a training issue, but it is even more an issue of designing
    incentives to encourage local officials to become more self-reliant. The current incentives for
    raising LGU own source revenues are not sufficient. It would be desirable for the government to
    consider changes in the IRA allocation formula that would increase incentives for local
    governments to increase the percentage of total revenues that are accounted for by local
    revenues. Specific guidelines should be established for local governments with respect to
    desirable targets. These should cover aggregate own source revenue as well as norms for each
    major component.
    Recommendations:
    · LGUs should be given greater incentives to increase own source revenues. An
    adjustment to the IRA allotment formula should be considered that would result in a
    higher IRA when an LGU demonstrates a relatively high degree of effort in raising its
    own resources.
    · Some LGUs have recently taken steps to increase their own revenues. An incentive
    scheme to encourage them to sustain these efforts despite sometimes daunting public
    opposition should be developed.
    · The action plan to enhance LGU resource mobilization and performance monitoring that
    was agreed under the LOGOFIND project should be given renewed priority. It should
    cover not only traditional sources of revenues such as taxes but also user fees and profits
    from revenue-generating enterprises such as public markets.
    · A review of the provisions of the Local Government Code with respect to local taxation
    and fiscal matters would also be useful in making sure that all possible sources of local
    revenues can be tapped by LGUs.
    7. Tap ODA Technical Assistance and Financing
    The important role of official development assistance in realizing the objectives set forth in the
    LGU Financing Framework was well recognized. Closer coordination between the donors and
    concerned government agencies including oversight agencies was called for to ensure that loan
    and grant financing as well as technical assistance intended for LGUs would meet mutual
    FINAL REPORT
    A Study to Revisit the LGU Financing Framework and its Implementation
    17
    objectives. How ODA funds could be utilized to increase private sector participation in
    implementing and financing LGU projects was a major challenge raised by the framework.
    The framework also identified four new directions for ODA support, namely:
    1. Building up the LGUs’ infrastructure pipeline by providing technical assistance to
    finance project feasibility studies;
    2. Supporting an LGU capacity building fund to promote LGU institutional development in
    the areas of resource mobilization, budget administration, development planning, capital
    budgeting and investment programming, project preparation, contract management and
    construction supervision;
    3. Establishing market-based credit enhancement mechanisms for LGU BOT infrastructure
    projects; and
    4. Providing grants and long-term credits for poorer LGUs and for social/environmental
    projects through the MDF, GFIs, and other facilities and promoting innovative LGUimplemented
    projects and/or greater LGU participation in NGA-sponsored projects.
    The inventory of financing and technical assistance provided to LGUs from ODA sources
    presented in Section II shows how the above challenges to ODA providers and beneficiaries have
    been met over the past five years.
    B. OTHER OUTSTANDING ISSUES
    1. Statutory Limits on Debt Servicing
    Background
    Under Presidential Decree (P.D.) No. 752, the Commission on Audit (COA) certified the legal
    borrowing capacity of LGUs. Based on the audited financial statements of the LGU concerned,
    the COA computed the legal borrowing capacity as seven percent of the assessed value of all
    taxable real property as of the end of the immediately preceding year less outstanding loans and
    other long-term indebtedness. Since the Local Government Code (LGC) of 1991 repealed the
    relevant provision in P.D. No. 752, COA Circular No. 94-007 discontinued the issuance by COA
    of Certifications on Lega l Borrowing Capacity to LGUs intending to contract loans, credits, and
    other forms of indebtedness with any government or domestic private banks and other lending
    institutions.
    Section 324 of the LGC of 1991 stipulates as one of the requirements that the budgets of LGUs
    should comply with, for any fiscal year, that “full provision shall be made for all statutory and
    contractual obligations of the local government unit concerned: Provided, however, that the
    amount of appropriations for debt servicing shall not exceed twenty percent (20%) of the regular
    income of the local government unit concerned”.
    On April 27, 1995, the Policy Governing Board (PGB) of the Municipal Development Fund
    (MDF) adopted Resolution No. 04-95 to guide the evaluation of sub- loan proposals from LGUs
    FINAL REPORT
    A Study to Revisit the LGU Financing Framework and its Implementation
    18
    to the MDF. With respect to debt service limitation, the guidelines provided “that in no case
    shall both the existing and proposed loan amortizations exceed 20% of the current year estimated
    annual income from regular sources plus IRA for the current year as estimated by the DBM”. In
    Annex A of the resolution, it was further specified that the current year estimated annual income
    from regular sources “shall be based on the average annual growth rate of the LGU’s income
    from the regular sources actually realized for the past 5 to 7 years excluding IRA; in no case,
    however, shall the average annual growth rate to be used for estimating the current year annual
    regular income of applying LGUs exceed 15%.” At present, the Bureau of Local Government
    Finance (BLGF) under the Department of Finance prepares certifications on debt service
    limitation, upon request, in accordance with these guidelines.
    Issues and Concerns
    1) It appears from the foregoing that LGUs intending to borrow from the MDF have to prepare
    estimates of current income that may not necessarily be the same as those contained in their duly
    approved budgets for the current year. LGUs may not necessarily have used the average growth
    rate for the past 5 to 7 years in estimating income for the current year. Depending on individual
    circumstances, the growth rate could be zero, or an average of the past three years, or even
    negative. In certain instances, a growth rate exceeding 15 percent could also have solid basis.
    Recommendation:
    In view of the above, the duly approved current year budget of the LGU concerned should be
    used as the starting point of analysis. Income projections and assumptions can be reviewed by
    the BLGF and those that are found to be overly optimistic adjusted downwards, for the purpose
    of computing debt service limits. The provisions of Annex A of MDF Resolution No. 04-95
    could be used as guidelines by the BLGF.
    2) It is also not clear what sources of income are to be considered as regular income aside from
    the IRA. BLGF Memorandum Circular No. 01-2001 which prescribes new quarterly local
    treasury and assessment reporting formats has a comprehensive listing of income sources to be
    submitted as Annex A.2. However, they are not classified into regular and non-regular income.
    Recommendation:
    More specific guidelines on which of these income sources are to be considered as regular
    income and under what circumstances they are to be considered as such should be issued by the
    BLGF to guide LGUs intending to borrow not just from the MDF but other lending institutions
    as well. It should also be clearly specified that loans are not to be considered as part of regular
    income. Otherwise, more loans would increase the debt service limit, leaving more room for
    new loans, rather than less. This had happened before in the computation of the national
    government’s own debt service ratio.
    3) Furthermore, the LGUs’ regular income may already be fully allocated, even before the new
    debt is taken on, so that it does not really matter whether the total debt servicing for existing and
    FINAL REPORT
    A Study to Revisit the LGU Financing Framework and its Implementation
    19
    proposed loans is less than 20 percent or not. There would still not be enough money for
    servicing the debt.
    Recommendation:
    To be really meaningful and useful, the certifications issued by the BLGF should state not only
    that the servicing of existing and proposed loans does not exceed 20 percent of the LGU’s regular
    income but also that it is not allocated for other purposes, for the current year.
    4) One major challenge that needs to be addressed is the provision of Section 324 that the debt
    service limitation is to be observed in any fiscal year. Since the MDF offers loans with 15 /years
    maturity and three years grace period, the full impact of the debt-servicing burden will have to be
    considered over 15 years, especially after the fourth year, and not just during the current year.
    On the other hand, projecting income over a 15-year period is a very difficult and perhaps
    ultimately fruitless exercise since assumptions can be made as optimistic or pessimistic as one
    wishes. In the final analysis, compliance with the debt servicing limitation under Section 324 of
    the LGC is the responsibility of the LGU concerned. This is made especially clear by its title
    “Budgetary Requirements” and inclusion in Chapter 3 on Budgeting under Title Five on Local
    Fiscal Administration rather than in Title Four on Credit Financing, as had been the case in P.D.
    752.
    Recommendation:
    It should be made clear to both LGU borrowers and all lenders to LGUs that the responsibility
    for ensuring budget allocations for debt servicing lies solely with the LGUs themselves. The
    lenders would be well advised to put explicit provisions and penalties for this in their loan
    agreements with the LGUs. The lenders should make sure that they are making the loan based
    on the creditworthiness of the LGUs concerned.
    2. Borrowing Capacity or Loanable Amount
    Background
    In Resolution No. 04-95, the MDF PGB also approved guidelines for determining the loanable
    amount for reve nue-generating and non-revenue-generating projects. For revenue-generating
    projects, the loanable amount “shall not exceed 18% of the current year estimated annual regular
    income, plus IRA for the current year as estimated by the DBM, multiplied by the annuity factor
    of 12 years at 14% per annum (5.660) or the prevailing annual interest rate”. For non-revenue
    generating projects, the loanable amount “shall not exceed 10% of the current year estimated
    annual regular income, plus IRA for the current year as estimated by the DBM, multiplied by the
    annuity factor of 12 years at 14% per annum (5.660) or the prevailing interest rate”.
    Issues and Concerns
    1) While it is accepted that the 18 percent and 10 percent ratios for revenue-generating and nonrevenue
    generating projects, respectively, were put in place to be on the conservative side of the
    FINAL REPORT
    A Study to Revisit the LGU Financing Framework and its Implementation
    20
    20 percent allowed by law, it is much less understood as to how and why these particular
    numbers were chosen and why they had to be different for the two types of projects. The likely
    explanation for the higher ratio used for revenue-generating projects is because the revenues to
    be generated from the project will put the LGU in a better position to repay its loan. However, it
    may be more useful to actually examine the relationship between the project’s expected revenues
    and the debt-servicing schedule for the project loan rather than use a standard ratio. For nonrevenue
    generating projects, the analysis will have to be much more complex since alternative
    sources of revenue with which to repay the debt will have to be identified.
    2) In practice, the 18 percent ratio for revenue-generating projects and the 10 percent for nonrevenue
    generating projects is being applied to 80 percent of the IRA, net of the 20 percent
    mandated by the LGC to be used for development projects. This needs to be re-examined since
    LGUs use up almost all of their regular income and IRA for personal services, maintenance and
    operating expenses, and mandatory allocations and have only the 20 percent development fund
    as possible sources of funding for development projects, for some of which they may need to
    borrow. A more realistic and conservative approach would be to look at the 20 percent
    development fund and see what new projects it can support, rather than the 80 percent balance of
    regular income which is almost always allocated for other purposes already. There is also the
    question of whether debt servicing for development projects undertaken now can be included in
    the 20 percent development fund in later years.
    While some LGUs interested in borrowing from the MDF have expressed their observation that
    the current formulae and ratios are too conservative and unduly limit their borrowing capacity, it
    could also be argued that the formulae are too liberal and could lead to unserviceable debt
    burdens for some LGUs.
    Recommendation:
    Instead of following fixed formulae with constant ratios, borrowing capacity needs to be
    determined through a close examination of the financial situation of the concerned LGU and the
    financial requirements and benefits of its proposed project, taking into account the observations
    made above. The variety and stability of the LGU’s sources of revenue and the composition and
    variability of its expenditures including existing contractual obligations have to be analyzed in
    order to determine the level of new borrowing that it can safely undertake. This analysis will
    also identify the various steps that the concerned LGU will have to take to increase its revenues
    or redirect its expenditures so that the appropriate resources will be made available to undertake
    the planned project, continue its maintenance and operation and repay back the loan. This
    procedure is admittedly more cumbersome and time-consuming but it will give both the national
    government and the LGU concerned the comfort of knowing that the loan amount and conditions
    attached will enable the LGU to pay back the loan in the future without unduly burdening its
    future budgets.

    3. MDF On-lending Terms
    Background
    The Policy Governing Board of the MDF determines the terms and conditions for MDF loans to
    LGUs. MDF-PGB Resolution No. 01-92 laid out the principles to be followed in such
    determination. With regards to the interest rate, this would “be determined annually to apply to
    all loan agreements signed in the relevant year. The interest rate prevailing during the signing of
    the sub-loan agreements would remain fixed for the duration of the loan repayment period.
    These provisions would give borrowing LGUs greater certainty in their future repayments
    liabilities than the variable interest rate hitherto in use”. Furthermore, “a uniform interest rate
    would apply for all sub-loan agreements signed in a given year, irrespective of funding source, of
    borrowing LGU, and of category of investment being financed. This arrangement would: (a)
    facilitate the objective of fostering real growth in the size (i.e. the net assets) of the Local Loans
    Account (LLA); (b) simplify the management and administration of the LLA; and (c) promote
    the objective of selection of well-justified LGU investments (by avoiding bias in investment
    selection which could be occasioned by differential interest rates).”
    Said Resolution further stated that “it is considered that subsidies to LGUs with limited
    borrowing capacity would better be provided through explicit capital grants (administered
    through the MDF grant mechanisms) allied with loans at a uniform LLA interest rate rather than
    being hidden in concessional lending terms”. “In the initial year (1992) of LLA operation, the
    interest rate would be set at 14 percent (14%) per annum. The rate would be increased annually
    thereafter in increments of 1.5 percent (1.5%) until such time as it reached a reference level of
    the three month weighted average interest rate (WAIR) on time deposits of 61-90 days, based on
    Central Bank statistics, plus a margin of 2 percent (2%). Thereafter, it would be adjusted
    annually in line with this reference level.”
    With respect to the determination of repayme nt and grace periods, said Resolution states “the
    economic or useful life of the investments financed from the LLA loans would determine the
    maximum repayment periods (including any grace periods) of loans. From the economic
    standpoint and for equity cons iderations, future generations should not be burdened, thru
    taxation, with amortizations for depreciated assets that the earlier generation has incurred and
    benefited from. The periods over which loans are repaid (to include the grace periods) should
    therefore be made on a per investment category basis. The MDF-PGB shall issue a schedule
    showing maximum repayment periods per investment category based on estimated average
    economic lives”. Furthermore, “grace periods would only be allowed where the borrowing LGU
    is unable immediately to service fully the loan debt. In these circumstances, the grace period
    would be based on two conditions: (a) cash flow of revenue generating projects; and (b)
    construction period of infrastructure projects.”
    Issues and Concerns
    1) Having the interest rate fixed over the life of the loan and having uniform interest rates across
    borrowing LGUs and types of projects has been welcomed by LGUs interested in borrowing
    from the MDF. However, having the same interest rate for all loans, irrespective of funding
    FINAL REPORT
    A Study to Revisit the LGU Financing Framework and its Implementation
    22
    source, has been questioned by some LGUs, particularly with regards to yen loans from the
    Government of Japan which have very concessional interest rates.
    2) Despite the provisions of MDF-PGB Resolution No. 01-92 and fluctuations in Treasury bill
    rates and other market interest rates over the years, no upward or downward adjustments have
    ever been made to the 14 percent interest rate stipulated for the year 1992. For the LOGOFIND
    Project negotiated in late 1998, the loan agreement specified 14 percent as a floor below which
    the onlending rate could not go. This issue has been repeatedly raised by LGUs, particularly
    when the lending rates of government financial institutions (GFIs) to LGUs dipped below 14
    percent, as they did in 1999. It might be interesting to know what the interest rates would have
    been if the reference rate specified in the Resolution, the three month WAIR on time deposits of
    61-90 days plus a margin of 2 percent, had been followed. The LGUs might find that it was to
    their overall advantage that the adjustments had not been made, considering that the GFIs’
    lending rates are not fixed over the life of the loan. In any case, the annual increments specified
    in said MDF-PGB resolution should be reviewed for possible revision.
    3) Greater consistency in the determination of onlending rates by the MDFO and GFIs of ODAsourced
    funds would also be highly desirable, especially if they are from the same ODA source.
    If the graduation policy is to work, the factors used to determine onlending rates, if not the rates
    themselves, should be as uniform as possible.
    4) The most important issue to be addressed is why MDF lending rates are supposed to be
    market-based. Various reasons have been given in the past: (a) to avoid misallocation of scarce
    resources that could arise from concessional rates; (b) to instill market discipline and prepare the
    LGUs for graduation to private sources of capital; and (c) to provide for full cost recovery by the
    MDF. The application of the above reasons to the particular context of MDF loans to LGUs has
    to be carefully made and if ascertained to be appropriate, should be clearly explained to LGUs so
    that they may understand and accept the policy of using market-based interest rates.
    Recommendation:
    All the reasons cited above for making MDF lending rates market-based appear to be as valid for
    MDF loans to LGUs as they are for other lending situations. First, if lending rates are
    concessional, say 6 percent when the market rate is 14 percent, then the hurdle rate for subprojects
    to be financed will be much lower, making it possible for subprojects whose return on
    investment is lower than the real cost of capital to be undertaken, effectively with a
    national government subsidy. The question is whether such a subsidy should be given by the
    national government, which also has limited financial resources, for sub-projects with low
    returns or to other sub-projects that have greater benefits and higher rates of return and are able
    to pass a higher market-based hurdle rate. Secondly, it is envisioned that more LGUs would
    eventually be able to access private sources of capital through private bank loans or bond
    flotations. If the national government provides loans at concessional rates. the LGUs would
    never want to borrow from anywhere else and would have a difficult time doing so if they are
    used to interest rates well below market rates.
    FINAL REPORT
    A Study to Revisit the LGU Financing Framework and its Implementation
    23
    Thirdly, since MDF loans to LGUs are funded from external borrowings of the national
    government, and not internally generated funds, the on lending terms should enable the
    government to recover the full costs of these borrowings. Thus, not only the nominal interest
    rate of the loans should be considered, but also the exchange rate risk, other fees charged by the
    lending institution, the cost of providing the MDF services, and the cost of covering loan
    defaults or delays in payments. In the case of the yen loans from Japan, although the nominal
    interest rate is highly concessional, the fluctuations in the exchange rate between the Japanese
    yen and the United States dollar have been quite big and unpredictable over the years, such that
    the national government has been exposed to large foreign exchange risk in servicing these
    debts. It should be noted that while efforts are made to recover the full cost of borrowed funds
    that are on lent to LGUs, most of the loans incurred by MDF with on lending facilities for LGUs
    also give out grants, either in the form of capital grants or technical assistance grants. This is in
    line with the MDF policy of providing subsidies to LGUs with limited borrowing capacity
    through explicit capital grants rather than being hidden in concessional lending terms. Technical
    assistance grants to build up institutional capacity or improve resource mobilization have also
    been offered through some MDF-implemented foreign-assisted projects.
    Having ascertained, for the reasons given above, that MDF on lending rates should be marketbased,
    the next issue to be resolved is the selection of the most appropriate market-based interest
    rate. Ignoring for the moment the fact that the MDF is being administered by the DOF for the
    national government, and keeping in mind that LGUs rely on their Internal Revenue Allotment
    (IRA) from the national government for around 85 percent of their revenues, it is recommended
    that market-based interest rate be taken to mean that rate that would fully reflect the appropriate
    risk that the market perceives it is taking when lending to LGUs. Although the market of lenders
    to LGUs presently consists only of the MDF and GFIs, both of which are instrumentalities of the
    national government, the risk they are taking in lending to LGUs actually consists of two parts –
    one is the riskiness of borrowings of the national government itself and the other is the riskiness
    of lending to the particular LGU concerned. It is recommended that it be the whole money
    market’s perception of the riskiness of national government borrowings that be used, and this is
    best exemplified by the Treasury bill rates of longer tenor (180 or 360 days). While Treasury
    bills are admittedly of far shorter tenor than MDF loans to LGUs, they are the national
    government debt instruments that are traded most frequently (weekly) and would therefore have
    the most number of observations within a given period. Adjustments for the difference in
    maturities could be made by adding a fixed or variable number as a margin. The weekly
    Treasury bill rates (especially for the 180 and 360-day bills) give a clear indication of how the
    whole market (including both private and government banks) perceives the creditworthiness of
    the national government. If, for example, the budget deficit of the national government is wider
    than expected or bigger than in a previous period, the Treasury bill rate goes up. If, however, the
    deficit is under control, or surpluses are being achieved, then the Treasury bill rate goes down.
    As mentioned earlier, and as seen last year, when the release of the IRA to LGUs was delayed or
    even sought to be reduced because of big national government budget deficits, the
    creditworthiness of LGUs is still very much intertwined with that of the national government
    which provides most of the LGUs’ income.
    In addition to the appropriate Treasury bill rate (180 or 360 days), the market-based interest rate
    for loans to LGUs should include a margin to reflect the creditworthiness of the LGU concerned.
    FINAL REPORT
    A Study to Revisit the LGU Financing Framework and its Implementation
    24
    Ideally, this margin should be variable, with lower rates for more creditworthy LGUs and higher
    rates for less creditworthy LGUs. On the other hand is the argument that lower-income LGUs
    should be given concessional rates because of their limited ability to repay loans. In the
    instances where the LGU and its proposed subproject are eligible for grants, the matching grant
    would serve to lower the effective cost of the loan. When no grants are available, alternative
    financing arrangements may have to be considered
    Periodic adjustment of the new reference rate would also have to be specified and implemented
    so that the reference rate carries out its role of reflecting the market’s perception of
    creditworthiness of both the national government and LGUs. Details of the computation of the
    new reference rate and adjustment mechanism will have to be worked out to keep MDF lending
    rates truly indexed to the market.
    5) With regards to repayment and grace periods, a standard maturity of 15 years and grace
    period of 3 years has been offered for all types of projects, whether revenue-generating or nonrevenue
    generating. The long repayment period during which interest rate is fixed is one very
    attractive feature of MDF loans to LGUs. The availment by MDF of official development
    assistance (ODA) as a source of funds for onlending to LGUs is the primary reason it can grant
    these long-term loans. When government financial institutions (GFIs) are able to avail of ODA
    funding sources, they are able to offer similar maturities. When GFIs use their own internal
    funds, they can go up to only five or seven years. Maturities in the intermediate range, between
    seven and 15 years, may also be considered by the MDF for projects with shorter economic life
    so that future generations would not be unduly burdened with repayment of the loan. Recently,
    the MDF-PGB approved a new policy setting maturity periods for loans to purchase equipment
    at ten years with no grace period.
    Recommendation:
    Another look as to whether the MDF should tailor the repayment and grace periods of a loan to
    the economic life of the project it finances might be warranted for the above reason and to make
    it possible for the LGU to consider new projects and new loans after it has fully or partially paid
    off existing loans.

  248. Navaleno 260-2
    The posts of Navaleno are all well and good, but to put in some of these things requires a basic infrastructure of simple competence in performing duties.

    J have in my hand a request for information from the Regional Office of a large Government Department.. The same request has gone out to thousands of people probably as my address is hand-written on an otherwise printed circular. The request is dated the 27th of December 2007 and the information must be provided by the 30th January 2008. So far this is very sensible, allowing plenty of time for each recipient to respond. However this letter was posted in Tacloban on 4th February 2008 and received at Naval Post Office on 8th February. I think I will miss the deadline!

    Now this is a minor example of a minor issue. Itt is quite amusing on the face of it, but it’s not funny when you start to think about all the things that need to be done in this country. If the simple process of sending a letter out on time cannot be done successfully, what hope is there of doing something important that might involve two or three hundred ‘minor’ tasks similar to this. That, I think, is a big concern.

    It’s fine to have great ideas, a passionate committment, a determination to bring in needed reforms, but if the simple basics aren’t there to support you……..

    There is an old nursery rhyme:
    For want of a nail
    the shoe was lost.
    For want of a shoe
    the horse was lost.
    For want of a horse
    the rider was lost.
    For want of a rider
    the battle was lost.
    For want of a battle
    the kingdom was lost.
    And all for the want
    of a horseshoe nail.

    I’m not being negative or defeatist, just reminding ourselves that there are a lot of little things that need attention.

    Una ka magpabuhagay sa imo gibati, palihug lang ug check didto sa DepEd kung tinuod ba ang imo gisuwat dinhi sa blogs. Duna ka ba ibedensya nga c Boy Ty ug Jed Morillo nangayo ug 15%? Wa ka ba makasabot nga dili lang sila ang kontraktor sa mga proyekto sa DepEd? Gani, usa ka kontraktor ni Espina nakakuha pod ug project. Almost all DepEd projects was undertaken by Tacloban Contractors. Mao ba ni imo giingon nga abusado cla? Tingali usa pod ka nga gusto mangontrata sa DepEd pero wa ka lang kakuha. Paniguro ug imo ayaw panglabot sa uban.

Unsa man ni ang kalsada sa Biliran bulawan? Unsa man lain project nakita-an, ang Biliran Garden REsort? Mansion sa Naval? Business Enterprises? MAnsion sa KAwayan? COndo sa Manila? MAnsion sa Ormoc?

    Subject: John Gokongwei , Jr. – Ad Congress Speech

    Powerful, inspirational words from John Gokongwei. This is how we Filipinos should challenge ourselves and act individually and collectively as a nation.

    John Gokongwei , Jr.
    Ad Congress Speech
    Nov 21, 2007

    Before I begin, I want to say please bear with me, an 81-year-old man who just flew in from San Francisco 36 hours ago and is still suffering from jet lag. However, I hope I will be able to say what you want to hear.

    Ladies and gentlemen, good evening. Thank you very much for having me here tonight to open the Ad Congress. I know how important this event is for our marketing and advertising colleagues. My people get very excited and go into a panic, every other year, at this time.

    I would like to talk about my life, entrepreneurship, and globalization. I would like to talk about how we can become a great nation.

    You may wonder how one is connected to the other, but I promise that, as there is truth in advertising, the connection will come.

    Let me begin with a story I have told many times. My own.

    I was born to a rich Chinese-Filipino family. I spent my childhood in Cebu where my father owned a chain of movie houses, including the first air-conditioned one outside Manila . I was the eldest of six children and lived in a big house in Cebu ‘s Forbes Park. A chauffeur drove me to school everyday as I went to San Carlos University , then and still one of the country’s top schools. I topped my classes and had many friends. I would bring them to watch movies for free at my father’s movie houses.

    When I was 13, my father died suddenly of complications due to typhoid. Everything I enjoyed vanished instantly. My father’s empire was built on credit. When he died, we lost everything-our big house, our cars, our business-to the banks.

    I felt angry at the world for taking away my father, and for taking away all that I enjoyed before. When the free movies disappeared, I also lost half my friends. On the day I had to walk two miles to school for the very first time, I cried to my mother, a widow at 32. But she said: “You should feel lucky. Some people have no shoes to walk to school. What can you do? Your father died with 10 centavos in his pocket.”

    (to be continued on my next post)

  264. Page 2: John Gokongwei Jr……..

    So, what can I do? I worked.

    My mother sent my siblings to China where living standards were lower. She and I stayed in Cebu to work, and we sent them money regularly. My mother sold her jewelry. When that ran out, we sold roasted peanuts in the backyard of our much-smaller home. When that wasn’t enough, I opened a small stall in a palengke. I chose one among several palengkes a few miles outside the city because there were fewer goods available for the people there. I woke up at five o’clock every morning for the long bicycle ride to the palengke with my basket of goods.

    There, I set up a table about three feet by two feet in size. I laid out my goods-soap, candles, and thread-and kept selling until everything was bought. Why these goods? Because these were hard times and this was a poor village, so people wanted and needed the basics-soap to keep them clean, candles to light the night, and thread to sew their clothes.

    I was surrounded by other vendors, all of them much older. Many of them could be my grandparents. And they knew the ways of the palengke far more than a boy of 15, especially one who had never worked before.

    But being young had its advantages. I did not tire as easily, and I moved more quickly. I was also more aggressive. After each day, I would make about 20 pesos in profit! There was enough to feed my siblings and still enough to pour back into the business. The pesos I made in the palengke were the pesos that went into building the business I have today.

    After this experience, I told myself, “If I can compete with people so much older than me, if I can support my whole family at 15, I can do anything!”

    Looking back, I wonder, what would have happened if my father had not left my family with nothing? Would I have become the man I am? Who knows?

    The important thing to know is that life will always deal us a few bad cards. But we have to play those cards the best we can. And WE can play to win!

    This was one lesson I picked up when I was a teenager. It has been my guiding principle ever since. And I have had 66 years to practice self-determination. When I wanted something, the best person to depend on was myself.

    And so I continued to work. In 1943, I expanded and began trading goods between Cebu and Manila . From Cebu , I would transport tires on a small boat called a batel. After traveling for five days to Lucena, I would load them into a truck for the six- hour trip to Manila . I would end up sitting on top of my goods so they would not be stolen! In Manila , I would then purchase other goods from the earnings I made from the tires, to sell in Cebu .

    (cont on next post)

  265. Page 3: John Gokongwei Jr……..

    Then, when WWII ended, I saw the opportunity for trading goods in post-war Philippines . I was 20 years old. With my brother Henry, I put up Amasia Trading which imported onions, flour, used clothing, old newspapers and magazines, and fruits from the United States . In 1948, my mother and I got my siblings back from China . I also converted a two-story building in Cebu to serve as our home, office, and warehouse all at the same time. The whole family began helping out with the business.

    In 1957, at age 31, I spotted an opportunity in corn-starch manufacturing. But I was going to compete with Ludo and Luym, the richest group in Cebu and the biggest cornstarch manufacturers. I borrowed money to finance the project. The first bank I approached made me wait for two hours, only to refuse my loan. The second one, China Bank, approved a P500,000-peso clean loan for me. Years later, the banker who extended that loan, Dr. Albino Sycip said that he saw something special in me. Today, I still wonder what that was, but I still thank Dr. Sycip to this day.

    Upon launching our first product, Panda corn starch, a price war ensued. After the smoke cleared, Universal Corn Products was still left standing. It is the foundation upon which JG Summit Holdings now stands. Interestingly, the price war also forced the closure of a third cornstarch company, and one of their chemists was Lucio Tan, who always kids me that I caused him to lose his job. I always reply that if it were not for me, he will not be one of the richest men in the Philippines today.

    When my business grew, and it was time for me to bring in more people- my family, the professionals, the consultants, more employees- I knew that I had to be there to teach them what I knew. When dad died at age 34, he did not leave a succession plan. From that, I learned that one must teach people to take over a business at any time. The values of hard work that I learned from my father, I taught to my children. They started doing jobs here and there even when they were still in high school. Six years ago, I announced my retirement and handed the reins to my youngest brother James and only son Lance. But my children tease me because I still go to the office every day and make myself useful. I just hired my first Executive Assistant and moved into a bigger and nicer office.

    Building a business to the size of JG Summit was not easy. Many challenges were thrown my way. I could have walked away from them, keeping the business small, but safe. Instead, I chose to fight. But this did not mean I won each time.

    By 1976, at age 50, we had built significant businesses in food products anchored by a branded coffee called Blend 45, and agro-industrial products under the Robina Farms brand. That year, I faced one of my biggest challenges, and lost. And my loss was highly publicized, too. But I still believe that this was one of my defining moments.

    (cont on next post)

  266. Page 4: John Gokongwei Jr……….

    In that decade, not many business opportunities were available due to the political and economic environment. Many Filipinos were already sending their money out of the country. As a Filipino, I felt that our money must be invested here. I decided to purchase shares in San Miguel, then one of the Philippines’ biggest corporations. By 1976, I had acquired enough shares to sit on its board.

    The media called me an upstart. “Who is Gokongwei and why is he doing all those terrible things to San Miguel?” ran one headline of the day. In another article, I was described as a pygmy going up against the powers-that-be. The San Miguel board of directors itself even aid for an ad in all the country’s top newspapers telling the public why I should not be on the board. On the day of reckoning, shareholders quickly filled up the auditorium to witness the battle. My brother James and I had prepared for many hours for this debate. We were nervous and excited at the same time.

    In the end, I did not get the board seat because of the Supreme Court Ruling. But I was able to prove to others-and to myself-that I was willing to put up a fight. I succeeded because I overcame my fear, and tried. I believe this battle helped define who I am today. In a twist to this story, I was invited to sit on the board of Anscor and San Miguel Hong Kong 5 years later. Lose some, win some.

    Since then, I’ve become known as a serious player in the business world, but the challenges haven’t stopped coming.

    Let me tell you about the three most recent challenges. In all three, conventional wisdom bet against us. See, we set up businesses against market Goliaths in very high-capital industries: airline, telecoms, and beverage.

    Challenge No. 1: In 1996, we decided to start an airline. At the time, the dominant airline in the country was PAL, and if you wanted to travel cheaply, you did not fly. You went by sea or by land. However, my son Lance and I had a vision for Cebu Pacific: We wanted every Filipino to fly. Inspired by the low-cost carrier models in the United States , we believed that an airline based on the no-frills concept would work here. No hot meals. No newspaper. Mono-class seating. Operating with a single aircraft type. Faster turn around time. It all worked, thus enabling Cebu Pacific to pass on savings to the consumer.

    How did we do this? By sticking to our philosophy of “low cost, great value.”

    And we stick to that philosophy to this day. Cebu Pacific offers incentives. Customers can avail themselves of a tiered pricing scheme, with promotional seats for as low as P1. The earlier you book, the cheaper your ticket. Cebu Pacific also made it convenient for passengers by making online booking available. This year, 1.25 million flights will be booked through our website. This reduced our distribution costs dramatically.

  267. Page 5: John Gokongwei Jr……

    Low cost. Great value.

    When we started 11 years ago, Cebu Pacific flew only 360,000 passengers, with 24 daily flights to 3 destinations. This year, we expect to fly more than five million passengers, with over 120 daily flights to 20 local destinations and 12 Asian cities. Today, we are the largest in terms of domestic flights, routes and destinations.

    We also have the youngest fleet in the region after acquiring new Airbus 319s and 320s. In January, new ATR planes will arrive. These are smaller planes that can land on smaller air strips like those in Palawan and Caticlan. Now you don’t have to take a two-hour ride by mini-bus to get to the beach.

    Largely because of Cebu Pacific, the average Filipino can now afford to fly. In 2005, 1 out of 12 Filipinos flew within a year. In 2012, by continuing to offer low fares, we hope to reduce that ratio to 1 out of 6. We want to see more and more Filipinos see their country and the world!

    Challenge No. 2: In 2003, we established Digitel Mobile Philippines, Inc. and developed a brand for the mobile phone business called Sun Cellular. Prior to the launch of the brand, we were actually involved in a transaction to purchase PLDT shares of the majority shareholder.

    The question in everyone’s mind was how we could measure up to the two telecom giants. They were entrenched and we were late by eight years! PLDT held the landline monopoly for quite a while, and was first in the mobile phone industry. Globe was a younger company, but it launched digital mobile technology here.

    But being a late player had its advantages. We could now build our platform from a broader perspective. We worked with more advanced technologies and intelligent systems not available ten years ago. We chose our suppliers based on the most cost-efficient hardware and software. Being a Johnny-come-lately allowed us to create and launch more innovative products, more quickly.

    All these provided us with the opportunity to give the consumers a choice that would rock their world. The concept was simple. We would offer Filipinos to call and text as much as they want for a fixed monthly fee. For P250 a month, they could get in touch with anyone within the Sun network at any time. This means great savings of as much as 2/3 of their regular phone bill! Suddenly, we gained traction. Within one year of its introduction, Sun hit one million customers.

    Once again, the paradigm shifts – this time in the telecom industry. Sun’s 24/7 Call and Text unlimited changed the landscape of mobile-phone usage.

  268. Page 6: John Gokongwei Jr………

    Today, we have over 4 million subscribers and 2000 cell sites around the archipelago. In a country where 97% of the market is pre-paid, we believe we have hit on the right strategy. Sun Cellular is a Johnny-come-lately, but it’s doing all right. It is a third player, but a significant one, in an industry where Cassandras believed a third player would perish. And as we have done in the realm of air travel, so have we done in the telecom world: We have changed the marketplace.

    In the end, it is all about making life better for the consumer by giving them choices.

    Challenge No. 3: In 2004, we launched C2, the green tea drink that would change the face of the local beverage industry — then, a playground of cola companies. Iced tea was just a sugary brown drink served bottomless in restaurants. For many years, hardly was there any significant product innovation in the beverage business.

    Admittedly, we had little experience in this area. Universal Robina Corporation is the leader in snack foods but our only background in beverage was instant coffee. Moreover, we would be entering the playground of huge multinationals. We decided to play anyway.

    It all began when I was in China in 2003 and noticed the immense popularity of bottled iced tea. I thought that this product would have huge potential here. We knew that the Philippines was not a traditional tea-drinking country since more familiar to consumers were colas in returnable glass bottles. But precisely, this made the market ready for a different kind of beverage. One that refreshes yet gives the health benefits of green tea. We positioned it as a “spa” in a bottle. A drink that cools and cleans thus, C2 was born.

    C2 immediately caught on with consumers. When we launched C2 in 2004, we sold 100,000 bottles in the first month. Three years later, Filipinos drink around 30 million bottles of C2 per month. Indeed, C2 is in a good place.

    With Cebu Pacific, Sun Cellular, and C2, the JG Summit team took control of its destiny. And we did so in industries where old giants had set the rules of the game. It’s not that we did not fear the giants. We knew we could have been crushed at the word go. So we just made sure we came prepared with great products and great strategies. We ended up changing the rules of the game instead.

    There goes the principle of self-determination, again. I tell you, it works for individuals as it does for companies. And as I firmly believe, it works for nations.

    I have always wondered, like many of us, why we Filipinos have not lived up to our potential. We have proven we can. Manny Pacquiao and Efren Bata Reyes

    in sports. Lea Salonga and the UP Madrigal Singers in performing arts. Monique Lhuillier and Rafe Totenco in fashion. And these are just the names made famous by the media. there are many more who may not be celebrities but who have gained respect on the world stage.

    But to be a truly great nation, we must also excel as entrepreneurs before the world. We must create Filipino brands for the global market place.

    If we want to be philosophical, we can say that, with a world-class brand, we create pride for our nation. If we want to be practical, we can say that, with brands that succeed in the world, we create more jobs for our people, right here.

    Then, we are able to take part in what’s really important-giving our people a big opportunity to raise their standards of living, giving them a real chance to improve their lives.

    We can do it. Our neighbors have done it. So can we. In the last 54 years, Korea worked hard to rebuild itself after a world war and a civil war destroyed it. From an agricultural economy in 1945, it shifted to light industry, consumer products, and heavy industry in the ’80s. At the turn of the 21st century, the Korean government focused on making Korea the world’s leading IT nation. It did this by grabbing market share in key sectors like semiconductors, robotics, and biotechnology.

    Today, one remarkable Korean brand has made it to the list of Top 100 Global Brands: Samsung. Less then a decade ago, Samsung meant nothing to consumers. By focusing on quality, design, and innovation, Samsung improved its products and its image. Today, it has surpassed the Japanese brand Sony. Now another Korean brand, LG Collins, is following in the footsteps of Samsung. It has also broken into the Top 100 Global Brands list.

    What about China ? Who would have thought that only 30 years after opening itself up to a market economy, China would become the world’s fourth largest economy? Goods made in China are still thought of as cheap. Yet many brands around the world outsource their manufacturing to this country. China’s own brands-like Lenovo, Haier, Chery QQ, and Huawei-are fast gaining ground as well. I have no doubt they will be the next big electronics, technology and car brands in the world.

    Lee Kwan Yu’s book “From Third World to First” captures Singapore’s aspiration to join the First World . According to the book, Singapore was a trading post that the British developed as a nodal point in its maritime empire. The racial riots there made its officials determined to build a “multiracial society that would give equality to all citizens, regardless of race, language or religion.”

    When Singapore was asked to leave the Malaysian Federation of States in 1965,

    Lee Kwan Yew developed strategies that he executed with single-mindedness despite their being unpopular. He and his cabinet started to build a nation by establishing the basics: building infrastructure, establishing an army, WEEDING OUT CORRUPTION,providing mass housing, building a financial center. Forty short years after, Singapore has been transformed into the richest South East Asian country today, with a per capita income of US$32,000.

    These days, Singapore is transforming itself once more. This time it wants to be the creative hub in Asia , maybe even the world. More and more, it is attracting the best minds from all over the world in filmmaking, biotechnology, media, and finance. Meantime, Singaporeans have also created world-class brands: Banyan Tree in the hospitality industry, Singapore Airlines in the Airline industry and Singapore Telecoms in the telco industry.

    I often wonder: Why can’t the Philippines , or a Filipino, do this?

    Fifty years after independence, we have yet to create a truly global brand. We cannot say the Philippines is too small because it has 86 million people. Switzerland , with 9 million people, created Nestle. Sweden, also with 9 million people, created Ericsson. Finland, even smaller with five million people, created Nokia. All three are major global brands, among others.

    Yes, our country is well-known for its labor, as we continue to export people around the world. And after India, we are grabbing a bigger chunk of the pie in the call-center and business-process-outsourcing industries. But by and large, the Philippines has no big industrial base, and Filipinos do not create world-class products.

    We should not be afraid to try-even if we are laughed at. Japan, laughed at for its cars, produced Toyota . Korea, for its electronics, produced Samsung. Meanwhile, the Philippines’ biggest companies 50 years ago-majority of which are multinational corporations such as Coca-Cola, Procter and Gamble, and Unilever Philippines, for example-are still the biggest companies today. There are very few big, local challengers.

    But already, hats off to Filipino entrepreneurs making strides to globalize their brands.

    Goldilocks has had much success in the Unites States and Canada, where half of its customers are non-Filipinos. Coffee-chain Figaro may be a small player in the coffee world today, but it is making the leap to the big time. Two Filipinas, Bea Valdez and Tina Ocampo, are now selling their Philippine-made jewelry and bags all over the world. Their labels are now at Barney’s and Bergdorf’s in the U.S. and in many other high-end shops in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.

    When we started our own foray outside the Philippines 30 years ago, it wasn’t a

    walk in the park. We set up a small factory in Hong Kong to manufacture Jack and Jill potato chips there. Today, we are all over Asia . We have the number-one-potato- chips brand in Malaysia and Singapore . We are the leading biscuit manufacturer in Thailand, and a significant player in the candy market in Indonesia. Our Aces cereal brand is a market leader in many parts of China . C2 is now doing very well in Vietnam , selling over 3 million bottles a month there, after only 6 months in the market. Soon, we will launch C2 in other South East Asian markets.

    I am 81 today. But I do not forget the little boy that I was in the palengke in Cebu . I still believe in family. I still want to make good. I still don’t mind going up against those older and better than me. I still believe hard work will not fail me. And I still believe in people willing to think the same way.

    Through the years, the market place has expanded: between cities, between countries, between continents. I want to urge you all here to think bigger. Why serve 86 million when you can sell to four billion Asians? And that’s just to start you off. Because there is still the world beyond Asia . When you go back to your offices, think of ways to sell and market your products and services to the world. Create world-class brands.

    You can if you really tried. I did. As a boy, I sold peanuts from my backyard. Today, I sell snacks to the world.

    I want to see other Filipinos do the same.

    Thank you and good evening once again.

    Inspirational speeches like the one I posted should be shared to every Filipinos, this will make us realize that each of us has a potential to rise from where we are now. If this is the first time you read this message, which I believe have reached even to our fellow Filipinos abroad and around the world, then I should conclude that it’s you “karon lang naka kupot og computer”. And as you said “wala ka kapuya type?” Means that you’re not familiar with computers as I am since, I dont have to “type” it, or encode it, as proper computer term for that, all I have to do is to copy it (ctrl C) and paste it (ctrl V). If you’re not familiar with computer terminologies I can give you a free course on that.

    If you’re not inspired by JGJr’s speech and you think that it has nothing to do with issues about Filipinos and BIliranons then you’re not as Filipinos as we are Biliranon’s and Navalenos. It a shame!

Kanang imong giingon nga mga proyekto angay lang na kay isip public official imo katungdanan paghatag ug proyekto ngadto sa mga tawo nga miboto nimo. Dili na angay isipon nga utang kabubut-on nato na ngadto sa mag pulitiko.

    Karon isip usa ka pulitiko, kinahanglan gyod ka magbuhat ug maayo ngadto sa imo constituents para botohan ka pag-usab sa poder. Bisan unsa nga initiative basta makahatag ka ug kaayohan. Karon pangutan-on ta ka “UNSA MAN NAHITABO SA MGA TAWO SA BILIRAN SULOD SA 12 KA TUIG DIHA SA PODER ANG MGA ESPINA?” Sa una nga wala pa sila hapit na man unta ta mo-graduate sa 20 poorest provincies of the Phils. Karon asa na man ta apil na ta sa First 5 poorest provinces in Phils. “DAKO KAAYO ANG ATONG PAG-IMPROVE UNSA NO?

    Karon nga bag-o pa si Glen sa pwesto, pwede nato siya hatagan panahon, paggamit sa iyang initiative para maka-serbisyo sa mga tawo nga miboto niya ug apil na kadtong wala moboto niya? Kon dili siya maka-deliver ngari sa ato saiyang gisa-ad, sa panahon sa Eleksyon nato siya hukman.

    Sa imong unang mga post, ingon ka nga wala mahimo si Glen kay wala makuha nga pondo sa Manila kay dili sama kang Gerry Espina nga daghan ug mga amigo didto.

    KARON NGA DUNA NA MGA PROJECT si Glen pwerte na pod nimo langas kay tag-100t, suko ka pa kay wala ipaagi sa DA ang fertilizers, ipaagi gyod sa DA para angkonon nga pod sa mga Espina nga ilaha. Sama sa mga school buildings nga igo lang gipintalan “Thru the Efforts” na, bisan sa panahon pa ni Gov. Sabonsolin, Gonzales ug Jaro natukod, kalooy sa mga uwat nga tawo sama nimo dali kaayo mitoo.

    Dia ang tinood ay:

    This is a very simple equation of what happened to Biliran and Gerry Espina Sr. during their 12 years in power. You don’t have to be a graduate of College to know what these equations mean:

    Biliran x 12 years (of Espina dynasty) = Poverty to Biliranons

    Gerry Espina Sr. x 12 years (of their dynasty) = Prosperity to his family

  289. Post 295

    Miingon ka man nga nangutang si Glen para ipamalit ug boto niadtong eleksyon. Ang mga Espina diin man ug kwarta nga gigasto niadtong miaging eleksyon?

    People of Biliran, ang sweldo sa congressman 35,000 kada bulan (karon na nga sweldo, basin gamay pa gyod sa una). Atong i-multiply og 12 mao nga 420,000 ra kada tuig. Atong i-multiply og 12 ka tuig (sa poder sa mga Espina) ang abtan 5.05M ra. Pangutana : “MANSION Caray-caray, MANSION sa Kawayan, BILIRAN GARDEN Resort, CONDO UNITS sa Manila, MANSION sa Ormoc, Fighting COCKS worth Millions of PESOS, SPORTS CAR, Business Enterprises (nga wala pa sa una gawas sa Espina marketing nga nagbaligya ug nga appliances) PLUS GASTOS sa ELEKSYON KADA 3 KA TUIG…..……

    DIIN MAN GIKAN ANG KWARTA NGA GIPAMALIT NIINI NGA MGA KABTANGAN?

    DILI KAHA GIKAN SA 120M KADA TUIG NGA ILANG NAKUHA SA GOBYERNO NGA PARA UNTA KANATO DINHI SA PROBINSIYA SA BILIRAN.

    It’s time to wake-up!

    Dili gyod nato angay e-understimate ang nahimo sa mga Espina sa BIliran:

    MAO UNTA NI : It is the duty of every elected official (the so called public servants) to deliver services to it’s constituents, for these people (who voted him into power) to prosper.

    THE IRONY IS:

    BEFORE the Espina dynasty, Biliran Province ranked 19th among the 20 Poorest Provinces of the Philippines. Gerry Espina Sr. is one of the poorest politicians in Biliran, who begged support from businessmen in Naval (including the father of Glen, Charlie Chong) and Biliran to support him elected into position.

    AFTER 12 YEARS in the public service, Gerry Espina Sr. became one of the Richest if not the “Richest Politician” in Biliran, while Biliran Province climbed to the top five Poorest Provinces in the Philippines.

    ——POOR BILIRAN ! ! ! ! ! ! !——-

    SHOULD WE BE THANKFUL TO THE ESPINA’S FOR THIS?????

    Davao councilor denounces local irregularities

    By Dennis Jay Santos, Rizalene P. Acac
    PDI Mindanao Bureau
    First Posted 22:59:00 02/22/2008

    DAVAO CITY, Philippines — Rodolfo “Jun” Lozada’s coming out in the open to expose corruption in the government appears to have inspired a city councilor here to do likewise.

    Bonifacio Militar even resigned his post as majority floor leader of the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP), saying he plans to expose soon what he claimed were “irregularities in the passage of important legislature.”

    “I anchor this decision (resignation) on my refusal to be docile with attempts to violate the rules or existing laws. Nor would I permit that my name be implicated or tarnished by any anomalous or questionable legislation,” Militar said in his February 15 letter to acting Vice Mayor Ma. Belen Acosta.

    The six-term councilor, a lawyer by profession, said some of his colleagues made attempts to “violate the law to gain profit.”

    Asked to name names and give specifics, Militar told reporters that he would do so in a privilege speech next Tuesday.

    He said disclosing the details of his claim to reporters would invite libel suits whereas he would enjoy immunity if he made the disclosure in the local legislature.

    While he acknowledged that alleged attempts by some of his colleagues to pass questionable proposals to benefit themselves had failed, Militar said he felt that the integrity of the SP has already been compromised.

    The Philippine Daily Inquirer learned that after turning in his resignation letter, Militar also filed a leave of absence.

    Councilor Danilo Dayanghirang, who was elected as Militar’s replacement, said the veteran councilor did not indicate when he was returning to work.

    Councilor Diosdado Mahipus, chair of the ethics committee, said the committee has decided to investigate Militar’s allegations.

    “I presume that because he is the floor leader, he is privy to the lobbying (efforts),” Mahipus said.

    ”””””’The Fern and the Bamboo…..””””’

    One day I decided to quit…. I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality. …. I wanted to quit my life.

    I went to the woods to have one last talk with God.

    “God”, I said. “Can you give me one good reason not to quit?”

    His answer surprised me…”Look around”, He said. “Do you see the fern and the bamboo?”

    “Yes”, I replied.

    God said: “When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them. I gave them light. I gave them water. The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo.”

    ”In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo”.

    ”In the third year, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit.”

    ”In the fourth year, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed. I would not quit.”

    “Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth.
    Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant.”

    ”But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100
    feet tall.”

    ”It had spent the five years growing roots. Those roots
    made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive.
    I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle.”

    He said to me. “Did you know, my child, that all this
    time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots. I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you. Don’t compare yourself to others.”

    He said. “The bamboo had a different purpose than the
    fern, yet, they both make the forest beautiful.”

    “Your time will come, ” God said to me.” You will rise high!”

    “How high should I rise?” I asked.

    “How high will the bamboo rise?” He asked in return.

    “As high as it can?” I questioned.

    “Yes.” He said, “Give me glory by rising as high as you can.”

    I left the forest and brought back this story.
    I hope these words can help you see that God will never give up on you……..

    Never regret a day in your life.

    Good days give you Happiness.

    Bad days give you Experiences.

    Both are essential to life.

    Keep going…

    Happiness keeps you Sweet,

    Trials keep you Strong,

    Sorrows keep you Human,

  318. The Mouse Trap

    A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package.

    What food might this contain? The mouse wondered – he was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap.

    Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning : There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!’

    The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, ‘Mr.Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it.’

    The mouse turned to the pig and told him, ‘There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!’

    The pig sympathized, but said, I am so very sorry, Mr.Mouse, but there
    is nothing I can do about it but pray. Be assured you are in my prayers.’

    The mouse turned to the cow and said ‘There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!’

    The cow said, ‘Wow, Mr. Mouse. I’m sorry for you, but it’s no skin off my nose.’

    So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the farmer’s mousetrap alone.

    That very night a sound was heard throughout the house — like the sound of a mousetrap catching its prey.

    The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught.

    The snake bit the farmer’s wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital , and she returned home with a fever.

    Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup’s main ingredient.

    But his wife’s sickness continued, so friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock.

    To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig.

    The farmer’s wife did not get well; she died.

    So many people came for her funeral, the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide enough meat for all of them.

    The mouse looked upon it all from his crack in the wall with great sadness.

    So, the next time you hear someone is facing a problem and think it doesn’t concern you, remember — when one of us is threatened, we are all at risk.

    We are all involved in this journey called life. We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another.

  319. Albert 343

    Excellent post Albert and a very important lesson. I recently read a book about a Filipino boy guerilla in the 2nd World War. After the war he is the victim of a kidnap but manages to escape. The main kidnappers are caught but he and his family do a deal by which they will not prosecute if the kidnappers promise to confine their illegal activities to other provinces. Of course this concept is ridiculous and cowardly – the criminals must be stopped and stopped now, not swept into someone else’s garden. Your story of the mouse has so many characteristics of this.

    I can half-recommend the book, but only the first half which has a very nice love story, interesting stuff about the Japanese occupation, his trial for participating (unwittingly)in the murder of a local Mayor who was branded as a collaborator – he is defended at his trial by Ferdinand Marcos, and the story of his kidnapping and escape is very good. After that the story continues but without interest. This is an autobiography and the writer, if still alive, lives in the States now.

    This being happy to pass the kidnappers on to prey on your own countrymen and women is a theme that you can see in different forms regularly by following the news – I suspect it’s a big impediment in the growth of the Philippines.

    “Boy Guerilla”
    Rudy De Lara, a native of Don Galo, Pampanga, a seaside town in southern Metro Manila, Philippines. 1942. This love story reveals his brave journey from a carefree, almost frivolous childhood in an idyllic paradise, through underground warfare, and through years of turmoil and terror that would mark his life forever. The triumph over the Japanese after WWII should have ushered in a time of jubilation. Instead, it brought kidnapping, death, and trial for murder.”

  320. Thanks Bill Gregory (Post 345). I will read the book you recommend if I can get it.

    Filipinos are known to be a very resilient race, we know how to endure sufferings, very easy to forgive and forget. Being resilient is a good Filipino trait, but being easy to forgive and forget is not doing us well. Look at what we have done to the Marcoses, 20 years of sufferings we endured from them and their cronies and co-horts (such as Gerry Espina Sr.), yet we continue to forgive and forget what they’ve done to us. We even elected them back into power. These people who learned how to manipulate people during the Marcos years are continuously manipulating us to their own advantage.

    I’ve posted some article’s here to encourage (posts 282 to 290), to give hope (post 340) and to be vigilant (post 343) on the things that happened around us. These articles, I hope will continue to remind us to be strong despite of the hardships that we are experiencing right now and at the same time continue to guard our right to be served, if not for the best, even at least better that what we get from our elected officials during the last 12 years or so. I believe that the struggle for better governance here in Biliran didn’t end with the defeat of Gerry Espina Sr. It was just the beginning.

  321. CORRECTION:

    INSTEAD OF: “to guard our right to be served, if not for the best, at least better that what we get from our elected officials during the last 12 years or so”

    SHOULD BE: “to guard our right to be served, if not for the best but at least better than what we get from our elected officials during the last 12 years or so”

  322. A minor quibble, Albert, but there are virtually no ‘elected’ officials in the Philippines. It is illegal to buy votes – therefore you have a large number of criminals in public office. I don’t know how to solve this problem, but I do know that aspiring statesmen/women ie do-gooders rather than politicians, should not have to start their political careers by committing acts that carry an imprisonment penalty and starting with a financial loss that can only be recovered by corruption.

    There is a saying that ‘people get the government they deserve’ and this is probably truer for us than in most countries in the world.

    IF there is a solution then I suggest that NOW is the time that the Biliran leaders start educating the voters – well before the next round of elections. There is little point in having a Heroes’ Day Holiday when come election time most people spit on their graves.

    I am sorry to be so forthrite but that has to be the truth. People gave their lives for freedom and democracy – is it that much to ask that the people forsake a few pesos to honour their sacrifice?

  323. Good evening to eveybody!!! specially to all FREEDOM FIGHTERS!!!

    I JUST WANT TO READ SOME NEW BLOGS HERE, BAD SAD TO SAY OLD ISSUES I FOUND OUT……WHEN THIS PEOPLE THAT MADE THE BILIRAN ISLAND POOREST PROVINCE OF REGION 8 WILL GOING TO GO AWAY?

    REP. CHONG

    HOW ARE YOU MY FRIEND? ITS BEEN A LONG TIME I DID NOT ABLE TO VISIT THIS SITE….I AM REALLY BUSY THIS PASSED WEEKS. I HOPE YOU HAVE MORE PATIENCE IN ALL THE ALLIGATIONS TROWING TO YOU BY YOUR CRITICS…..I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT!!!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!

  324. Wow! This thread has dried up quickly.

    Was it something I said?

    Please respond because I may be a foreigner but I care for this country and the people – I will do what I can to help even if the task is impossible. Truth is truth, the right way is the right way. I hope you all appreciate that. Jose Rizal was a great man by any world standards and all of us owe it to him to strive for his ambitions for the people of this country. I can’t say any more, can I?

  325. Bill Gregory (Post 348)

    I don’t know who’s to blame for this unending vote buying? Which comes first the buyers or the sellers of votes? It’s just like the issue: “which comes first, the chicken or the egg”? People expect politician to give them money during elections and politicians surely get this money back from the people through kickbacks from projects. During election same thing happens again and again.

    If only voters would realize that this “vote buying” problem should end in-order for them to benefit from the “elected officials” and will no longer sell their votes, then I think this vote buying practice will stop.

    Allow me to call them “elected officials” although I agree with your point that they are all bunch of criminals in public service, but this is my point: if both sides committed same crime (vote buying) then the practice just cancels out, just like multiplying negative numbers to both sides of an equation, the negative signs cancel out.

    It will either be the voters who will start to change things by not selling their votes or it will be the politicians who will stop buying votes comes election time. I don’t know who will make the first move, but I am hoping that time will come.

    I am very proud of you because even if you’re not a Filipino as you’ve said in your post 350, but you care about us. But it’s very frustrating to note that that some of my fellow Filipinos and some Biliranons (such as JDR, and some politicians) are ready or had already sold their souls and beings to evil politicians (such as Gerry Espina Sr., et al..) and shamelessly even taking part in bringing our country and our province into poverty. WHAT A SHAME!!!!

    Don’t worry my friend you didn’t say anything wrong. It’s good to be honest.

    GIMINI (Post 349)

    My friend, it is sometimes important to bring old issues, as I’ve said in my previous blog that Filipinos, including Biliranons are easy to forgive and forget. It’s a good thing to remind us of our weaknesses so history and mistakes will not be repeated again and again.

    The lender is called municipal development fund office under the department of finance. The amount of loan is 150 million plus 84 million in computed interest. So over the next 10 years, our province will be saddled with principal and interest amounting to 234 million or 16,500 per capita or per person share of this loan.

    I am questioning the viability of the projects to be funded by this loan, the repayment plan, the fiscal reform required by this loan, the current plan to increase local taxation, the previous 35 million loan the governor obtained in early 2004 which are all connected to this loan. I ask for the loan documents in a bid to protect the interest of our people but the governor adamantly refused to give us copy of these documents.

    For the information of others, according to them (governor’s key officials) they receive about 202 million a year in IRA broken down as follows: 99 million for personal services (which means that if govt pays an average of 7500 a month, capitol is paying about 1100 employees); 46 million for maintenance and operating expenses; 7.12 for calamity fund; 7,8 million for capital outlay; 42 million in economic dev fund. In all, 7.8m + 42m means that the capitol has 49.8 million in funds available for projects. Add the 11 million other income from the operation of the hospital to the 49.8 million, the governor has 60.8 million in free funds to fund various projects. This is available every year! Why does Gov. Espina have to bury Biliran in deep debt?

    This is just an installment. More of this tomorrow.

    GIMINI

    Thanks a lot my friend for your post. I really appreciate it. Take care and god bless!

    REP. CHONG, please do your best to have the governor account this loan up to the last centavo if you can’t do something to oppose this loan. People in Biliran will be gratefull to you if this plan will not push through.

    the assessor’s office conducted a public hearing on the proposed revision and increase in real property taxes about two weeks ago. nilo penaflor tried to downplay the effect of the proposed increase in taxes saying that it is only minimal. however, when i asked him how much is the estimated amount the people will pay in additional taxes, he gave only have of the amount… and further refuse to divulge the real reason for the increase which i honestly think is tied to the requirement of the loan on fiscal reforms…

    the revision is the more dangerous dagger here… under the revision, they will strictly count the number of trees in any plot of land therefore increasing the assessed value and increasing the taxes indirectly… this is where they will get partly the money to pay for the loan and interest at 234 million pesos.

    proof that their is something very sinister about this revision… i offered to pay the estimated increase in taxes but governor espina refused to accept my offer… espina wanted the increase in taxes because mdfo want fiscal reform… as condition of the loan…

    to be continued…

  342. The Seed

    A successful business man was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the business.

    Instead of choosing one of his directors or his children, he decided to do something different. He called all the young executives in his company together.

    He said, “It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO. I have decided to choose one of you.” The young executives were shocked, but the boss continued. “I am going to give each one of you a SEED today – one very special SEED. I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one
    year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO.”

    One man, named Jim, was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went home and excitedly, told his wife the story.

    She helped him get a pot, soil and compost and he planted the seed.

    Everyday, he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some of the other executives began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow. Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew. Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing. By now, others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn’t have
    a plant and he felt like a failure.

    Six months went by – still nothing in Jim’s pot. He just knew he had killed his seed. Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing. Jim didn’t say anything to his colleagues, however. He just kept watering and fertilizing the soil – He so wanted the seed to grow.

    A year finally went by and all the young executives of the company brought their plants to the CEO for inspection. Jim told his wife that he wasn’t going to take an empty pot. But she asked him to be honest about what happened. Jim felt sick at his stomach, it was going to be the most embarrassing moment of his life, but he knew his wife was right. He took his empty pot to the board room. When Jim arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other executives. They were beautiful — in all shapes and sizes. Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!

    When the CEO arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted his young executives. Jim just tried to hide in the back. “My, what great plants, trees, and flowers you have grown,” said the CEO. “Today one of you will be appointed the next CEO!” All of a sudden, the CEO spotted Jim at the back of the room with his empty pot. He ordered the financial director to bring him to the
    front. Jim was terrified. He thought, “The CEO knows I’m a failure! Maybe he will have me fired!”

    When Jim got to the front, the CEO asked him what had happened to his Seed, Jim told him the story.

    The CEO asked everyone to sit down except Jim. He looked at Jim, and then announced to the young executives, “Behold your next Chief Executive! His name is Jim!”

    Jim couldn’t believe it. Jim couldn’t even grow his seed. How could he be the new CEO the others said?

    Then the CEO said, “One year ago today, I gave everyone in this room a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today.

    But, I gave you all boiled seeds; they were dead – it was not possible for them to grow. All of you, except Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers.

    When you found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you. Jim was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who will be the new Chief Executive!”

    If you plant honesty, you will reap trust.
    If you plant goodness, you will reap friends.
    If you plant humility, you will reap greatness.
    If you plant perseverance, you will reap contentment.
    If you plant consideration, you will reap perspective.
    If you plant hard work, you will reap success.
    If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation.

    So, be careful what you plant now; it will determine what you will reap later.

  343. The Seed

    Nice story, Albert, but it seems to me that it was Jim’s wife who really deserved the appointment!!

    The wonderful thing about honesty is that it requires no special skills or training, it is the most important quality that anyone can have but it is hard to find. Why it should be so especially hard to find here, I do not know.

    KINSA MAY DILI MASUKO NGA BISAN DILI SI GOVERNOR MAOY GIPANGUTANA, SIYA GAYUD ANG MOTUBAG? BISAN NAAY DOKUMENTO GIPAKITA, MOLIMOD PA GYUD. ANG PAGPANGUWAT NI GOVERNOR ESPINA SA AKONG ATUBANGAN IS A GRAVE INSULT TO ME. IKAW KUNO INGON ANA DILI BA MO-ULBO IMONG KASPA?

  355. TO MY FELLOW BILIRANONS

    FIRST, DILI KO KAPUGONG SA MGA TAWO KUNG MOSINGIT SILA… ILA NA KATUNGOD KUNG GUSTO SILA. KUNG DILI MABATI ANG ISYU SA UBAN TUNGOD SA ILANG PAGSININGIT… IT GOES FOR ME AS IT GOES FOR THE GOVERNOR… TABLA MING DUHA AS FAR AS THE EFFECT IS CONCERNED.

    SECOND, THE POINT I WANT TO RAISE IS KUNG HONEST TO GOODNESS LANG ANG GI-APAS NI GOVERNOR ESPINA MAHITUNGOD SA LOAN… WHY MAN NGA MAMAKAK SIYA IN PUBLIC IN THE FOLLOWING MANNER: 1. INGON SI GOVERNOR ESPINA SI JOJI FROM PROLEND NING LAKAW NA… DILI SIYA GUSTO IPRESENTAR SA PUBLIKO SI JOJI PERO DIHANG NING INSISTER KO… NAPUGOS SIYA UG PRESENTAR KANG JOJI KAY NABUKING SIYA NGA SI JOJI DIHA RA DIAY SA ANDAYA NAGLUNCH WALA PA DIAY MILAKAW SAMA SA IYANG GIBUTYAG SA PUBLIKO 2. WHY MAN INGON SI TOROTOT ON RADIO NGA WA PAY RESOLUTION UG ANG SP PUD INGON USAB NGA WALA PAY RESOLUTION IN TWO LETTERS DATED 19 FEB AND 11 MAR WHEN IN FACT THE RESOLUTION NGA NAGTUGOT KANG GOVERNOR ESPINA PAGPANGUTANG WAS MADE ADTO PANG 24 JANUARY 3. WHY MAN WALA GYUD SILA MAGHISGOT NGA ANG 80M + 40M LOAN NI GOVERNOR ESPINA MAY NAGTANGAG NGA KONDISYON O DELIVERABLE NGA KINAHANGLAN PATAS-AN UNA ANG BUHIS SA MGA YUTA UG NGA KAHOY SA PROBINSIYA KAY KUNG DILI MOSAKA ANG BUHIS, DILI IHATAG ANG UTANG. INGON USAB SI TOROTOT NIADTONG 21 FEB SA RADYO NGA DILI KONDISYON ANG BUHIS SA UTANG PERO NIADTONG PUBLIC HEARING… NING ADMITER ANG TAGA PROLEND NGA DELIVERABLE ANG PAGPATAAS SA BUHIS UNA APPROBAHAN ANG UTANG 4. NGANO MAN NGA ANG PROLEND SA MANILA GILIPAT-LIPAT MAN KO SA AKONG MGA PANGUTANA MAHITUNGOD NIINING MAONG UTANG 5. ANG KAPASIDAD SA ATONG PROBINSIYA NGA MOBAYAD GIBASE SA 28.911 MILLION NGA PORTION SA ATONG 202 MILLION IRA NGA LIBRE (UNOBLIGATED/UNPROGRAMED FUNDS) NGANONG DILI MAN KINI MAOY GAMITON PAG PONDO SA MGA DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS SA PROBINSIYA, NGANONG MANGUTANG MAN GAYUD? KUNG DILI NATO SILA MASALIGAN MAHITUNGOD NIINING MGA BUTANGA, DILI NATO SILA MASALIGAN SA 120 MILLION NGA ILANG UTANGON.

    THIRD, KINING 120 MILLION LOAN IRELEASE KINI MOST LIKELY IN 3 TRANCHES O KATULO KA BAHIN NGA SA AMONG TANTIYA MOKABAT UG 18 KA BULAN TANAN. BUOT IPASABOT ANG TIBUOK 120 MILLION WILL BE INVESTED IN 18 MONTHS. NOW, KUNG ATONG GAMITON ANG LIBRENG PONDO NGA 28.911 MILLION NGA GIINGON SA BUREAU OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT FINANCE NGA PWEDE GAMITON PAGBAYAD SA UTANG, ANG 120 MILLION DIVIDED BY 28.911 MILLION (PER YEAR) WILL GIVE US 4.15 SOMETHING YEARS OR 50 MONTHS TANAN. NOW, TAN-AWA ANG OPTION NGA LOAN => 120 MILLION GASTOHON IN 18 MONTHS. TAN-AWA ANG OPTION NGA LIBRENG PONDO => 28.911M X 4.15Y = 120 MILLION GASTOHON IN 50 MONTHS. SO BETWEEN THE LOAN OPTION OF 18 MONTHS AND THE FREE FUND OPTION OF 50 MONTHS ANG DIPERENSIYA NILA IS JUST 32 MONTHS OR JUST 2 YEARS AND 8 MONTHS. NOW KUNG ARI TA SA UTANG, 120 MILLION ANG PRINCIPAL MO-ANAK UG 55 MILLION NGA INTEREST MATUD PA NI CHARINA GARCES ANG PROVINCIAL ACCOUNTANT. SO KUNG ANG TUBO NGA 55 MILLION ATONG I-APUD-APUD SA 32 MONTHS NGA AGWAT BETWEEN THE LOAN OPTION UG FREE FUND OPTION… BUOT IPASABOT THE PEOPLE OF BILIRAN, ANG KATAWHAN SA BILIRAN MAGBAGO UG PENALTY IN THE FORM OF INTEREST AT THE RATE OF 1.719 MILLION PESOS KADA BUWAN SULOD SA DIPERENSIYA LAMANG NGA 32 KA BUWAN. KUNG MAO NA, NGANO MAN GAYUD NGA ATO MAN DALION PAGHUMAN TANAN DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS NI GOVERNOR ESPINA IN JUST 18 MONTHS NGA MAKABAYAD MAN KITA UG PENALTY NGA 55 MILLION PESOS. NAA PAY BUHIS NGA PATAS-AN BISAN NAGKALISOD NA ANG KATAWHAN. SAMTANG KUNG ATONG HINAY-HINAYON PAGHUMAN SULOD SA 50 KA BULAN GAMIT ANG LIBRENG PONDO NGA WALAY INTEREST, MAHUMAN RA MAN GIHAPON… WAY UTANG, WAY INTEREST, WAY BUHIS NGA MOSAKA. ASA MAN TA?

    FOURTH, ANG PARALITON SAMA SA BUGAS UG UBAN PA, ANG KRUDO UG GASOLINA, ANG ELEKTRISDAD TANAN MOSAKA KARONG TUIGA… DUGANGAN PA GAYUD NI GOVERNOR ESPINA UG PAGPATAAS SA BUHISAN… ASA NAMAN ANG ATONG KATAWHAN PADULONG.

    FIFTH, ANG KADAGHANAN SA MGA TAWO DIDTO SA PUBLIC HEARING MGA BINAYARAN NI GOVERNOR ESPINA. AKO ILANG PASANGINLAN ANG MAOY NAGBAYAD? NGANONG MOBAYAD MAN KO INGON ADTO KADAKO NGA DILI MAN AKO ANG NAGPATAWAG SA HEARING SI GOVERNOR MAN. UNYA KUNG AKO MOBAYAD, UNYA ICANCEL NI GOVERNOR… ALKANSE KO. HUMAN REASON WILL TELL NGA KAY WALA KOY CONTROL OVER THE HEARING DILI JUD KO MOGASTO OVER SOMETHING NGA WALA KOY CONTROL. SI GOVERNOR ANG NAGBAYAD KAY SIYA MAOY MAY CONTROL SAMA SA PAGDELAY NILA SA PROCEEDINGS ARON MANGULI NA ANG MGA TAWO.

    SIXTH, I BELIEVE IN MY ADVOCACY AND IN ITS JUSTIFICATION. I AM NOT AFRAID NGA MOATUBANG BISAN PA DILI NA AKO NGA CROWD OR WHEREVER PA KO IBUTANG. I AM GOING TO FACE ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE POLICY GOVERNING BOARD OF THE MDFO SOON AND I WILL DEFEND MY POSITION.

    SEVENTH, FOR THOSE QUESTIONING MY ALLOCATION OF THE PDAF/CDF I AM ALWAYS READY TO ANSWER YOU ANYTIME, ANYWHERE. DI BA MURAG GILAPARO SI GOVERNOR SA IYANG PANGUTANA NGA ABI NIYA MAPAHIYA KO… I ANWERED HIM STRAIGHT-FORWARDLY, DIRECTLY IN HIS FACE, DIRECTLY INTO HIS EYES, SPONTANEOUSLY… AND IM READY TO PROVE MY ANSWER USING THE GENERAL APPROPRIATIONS ACT OF 2008.

    FINALLY, KUNG KINSA MAN GANI SA HANAY SA MGA ESPINA NGA ANDAM MO-ATUBANG NAKO IN ANY FORUM, IM GAME, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE. I WANT A ONE-ON-ONE WITH THEM OR BISAN PA ONE-TO-MANY LIKE ADTONG FRIDAY. I AM NOT FINISHED SHOWING MY DOCUMENTARY PROOFS AND I WOULD LOVE TO SHOW THEM ALL FOR THE PUBLIC TO SEE. BUT ONE CONDITION… SI GOVERNOR ESPINA DILI DAPAT MANGILUG UG MICROPHONE ARON DILI MAKATUBAG ANG SI KINSA ANG AKONG PANGUTAN-ON. I WANT SOME PEOPLE TO ANSWER SOME VERY IMPORTANT QUESTIONS… I HOPE THEY WILL COME OUT WITH A DIFFERENT PROGRAM ON RADIO DEALING SIMPLY WITH THIS AND THAT THEY WILL GIVE ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO SIT WITH THEM. KANANG NAA SILA UG NAA KO BASTA DILI LANG MOTUBAG SI GOVERNOR ESPINA KUNG DILI SIYA MISMO PANGUTAN-ON… I DONT TRUST HIM… HE IS SUCH AN ACCOMPLISHED PATHETIC LIAR!

    LASTLY, WHY DID THE SELF-PROCLAIMED MASTER DEBATER GERRY ESPINA SR. WALKED-OUT OF THE HEARING AFTER NALUP-OG NA IYANG ANAK UG NAKITA NA ANG IYANG MGA BAKAK IN FRONT OF THE PUBLIC? NGANONG NO HELP MAN SI MANONG GERRY? WHY DID THE VERY ASSUMING JUNIOR DEBATER CALLED TOROTOT FIZZLE OUT IN PUBLIC? THE MOST I SAW OF HER WAS THE TIME SHE WAS TROTTING IN FRONT OF THE GYM LIKE THE PROUD MOTHER OF A PEACOCK? IM SURE NA BAD BREATH TO SIYA FOR NOT OPENING HER RATHER NOISY BLABBERING USELESS MOUTH!

  361. This is a repost.

    To Biliranons
    To all bloggers

    It is very encouraging that Biliranons have demonstrated strong and active participation in the “loan issue” or planned borrowing of the Provincial Government presented during the public hearing.

    I do invite everyone to have a look at the following report prepared by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to gain a good understanding of the whole program:

    http://www.adb.org/Documents/RRPs/PHI/39516-PHI-RRP.pdf

    Report and Recommendation of the President
    To the Board of Directors
    Project Number: 39516
    November 2007
    Proposed Program Loan and Technical Assistance
    Grant
    Republic of the Philippines: Local Government
    Financing and Budget Reform Program Cluster
    (Subprogram 1)

    ADB

    It is important that we understand the rationale of the total concept and objectives of the above. The planned borrowing by the Provincial Government is only a portion of the overall strategy proposed to achieve the objectives as outlined in this report.

    Please spend some time reading this. I suggest that we elevate our discussions on this matter on the basis of the over all scheme of things.

    I can understand where Governor Rogelio Espina and the SP are coming from. I fully understand the opposition to the proposed loan as expressed by Rep Glenn Chong.

    The issue, I suppose, is not just whether Biliran needs the loan, but more importantly, whether Biliranons are ready to trust our incumbent Provincial Government with this huge borrowing.

    The comments generated as a result of the public hearing indicated the absence of intensive public consultation during the conceptualization stage and prior to the Sangguniang Panglalawigan passing a resolution authorizing the Governor to apply for the said loan. The public hearing should have been treated as one of the pre-consultation process, not to be viewed as one of the conditions of approval, if any.

    Governor Espina and the members of Biliran SP would have done themselves a favor by presenting a draft of the loan proposal and submit it to intense public scrutiny within a specified period of time before even attempting to pass a resolution.

    The availability of offers for loan eligibility does not necessarily justify an immediate subsequent application. Credit, like other sources of government funds, must be subjected to adequate planning and consultation.

    Governor Roger Espina must show what this proposed borrowing will achieve in the light of governing policies. At the end of the day, what will this borrowing translate to in terms of Biliranons living a decent, healthy and happy lives. This is just to be simplistic about it.

  362. Rep. Glenn Chong 382

    Thank you for presence at the public hearing. You have effectively demonstrated to all Biliranons, that the Provincial Government has not been forthright with their approach to this planned borrowing.

    The limits of executive privilege

    By JUSTICE ANTONIO CARPIO

    Executive privilege can never be used to hide a crime or wrongdoing

    “Executive privilege is the implied constitutional power of the President to withhold information requested by other branches of the government. The Constitution does not expressly grant this power to the President but courts have long recognized implied Presidential powers if “necessary and proper” in carrying out powers and functions expressly granted to the Executive under the Constitution…….

    Executive privilege can never be used to hide a crime or wrongdoing, even if committed by high government officials. Executive privilege applies only to protect official acts and functions of the President, never to conceal illegal acts by anyone, not even those of the President.

    Public office is a public trust and not a shield to cover up wrongdoing. “

    Agri expert: RP should raise farmers’ productivity

    By LALA RIMANDO

    abs-cbnNEWS.com/Newsbreak

    http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/topofthehour.aspx?StoryId=113368

    “The Arroyo administration needs to invest in farmers’ productivity and raise their level of profitability to be competitive, a leading agricultural economist said.

    Arsenio Balisacan, former agriculture secretary and currently professor of economics at the University of the Philippines, and director of the Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture, told abs-cbnNEWS.com/Newsbreak that government has to invest in appropriate irrigation systems for the farmers and link them up with the markets. …..

    There is little appreciation of investing for the long term. What has been happening in the past decades is patchwork….

    t has been band-aid economics. The wound is still there. And the wound is now a cancer because we have identified this problem decades ago. This rice situation should be a wake up call to us. Even if this global crisis will disappear, our crisis will not disappear”

    HIMIG PINOY
    Conquered by Videoke
    by PRIME SARMIENTO

    http://www.pcij.org/

    The Pinoy videoke craze can be traced to other notable attributes of what has become a national pastime. For one, videoke singing serves as both a social lubricant and bonding mechanism. For another, it gives the individual the chance to shine, however brief, in a society that puts high value on conformism.

  398. Navaleno

    Para nako dili sad ko makaingon na gipasagdan ni Rep Chong ang atong yutang natawhan,Kay kanang nahimo sa mga espina, 12 years man sad na siya usa natuman.Duna naman sad infrasture projects si Rep Chong na nahuman ug gipangsugdan,Gibalik balik sa mga pro espina na wa pay agi or gamay pa ug agi si Rep Chong..Makaingon gamay ra siya ug agi kay tungod iya man gi apod apod sa tibook isla..
    Di man sad siguro maayo kung tanang projects sa naval nala ibutang dunay man gud mga brgy na mas nagkinahanglan pondohan…

  399. To navalenos 429…..day or dong navalenos….naa na day nahimo si Rep. Atty Glenn Chong sa likod ang kalsada hinay hinay na hasta sa may kawayan..ang mga baranggay sad gi apod apod na hinay hinay kay daghan kaayo baya nagkinahanglan ang cross country sad ug naa ka tym maka suroy pwede nimo na makita sa naval pila ka baranggay daghan baya ug wala ko masayop 1hunred sixty plus sa naval lang na daan. Ang uban pa naa pay Caibiran, Culuba,Almeria,Maripipi,Kawayan,Cabucgayan,Biliran nya lain lain problema kada lungsod. So naka daog man siya ana nga lungsod o wala tanan iya na tagaan…..so sa pagkakaron so far di ba naa na nakita iya na hatagan ug importansiya tanan walay pili navalenos….so wala pa siya nag usa ka tuig naa na kaysa 12 ka tuig nila dynastiya sumala unsa man? ma compare nato sa makita karon hinay hinay….di ba? so pasensiya kon wala ka makontento moabot ra na malipay tang tanan lumolupyo diri sa atoa okay?

  400. There is a famous word called “bottomline”.

    Every intentions may it be personal or societal when it comes to politics, boils down to one issue-bottomline which is personal interest… Filipinos are exceptionally good in enriching personal interest when it comes to politics…. Politicians decide not on social issues but on issues which would make him gain advantage over his/her adversary. Believe me…. Roger Espina and Glenn Chong are every inch politicians which always think about the bottom line… and who will be the losers? We are…. One fiascos over the other, arguments, mud slaying and public banters….. these can’t be resolve in each of their lifetimes. As long as they are active in politics and would want the same government position, these will not end, ever….As constituents we are left with the thoughts of who is a better servant who will consider societal interest over and above his personal? I say, not one of them….. remember the bottomline….

  401. navalineos
