TOUGH TASK

By Miguel Raymundo

SMUGGLING and corruption go hand in hand.

Smuggling is evil because the government losses hundreds of billions of pesos in revenue yearly thus greatly affecting the delivery of basic services to the people.

When the government losses revenue it is not the one that actually losses but the people especially the poor because in essence what comprises the government is the people.

P1.33 TRILLION

A study made public by Federation of Philippine Industries (FPI) two years ago showed that from 2002 to 2011 or in a span of nine years, the government lost more than P1.33…

POISON


IN April this year, 1.2 million consumers of Maynilad, water concessionaire of the east side of formerly MWSS service area that includes southern cities of Metro Manila, were given over 100 liters per day of dirty, if not poisoned water. Maynilad is a company owned by fund manager Manny V. Pangilinan.

For several days in that month, Maynilad delivered to their over 1 million customers water laced with manganese that can cause permanent neurological disorder.

That was the clear message he sent when he rebuked (read: insulted) PLDT Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan who arrogantly stated that the government should not stand in the way of businesses especially concerning their company’s upcoming projects and programs.

OUT OF THE WAY

“Some people, including people from the government, do not understand the implementation of major infrastructure needed to transform PLDT and Smart’s services into digital and they could block the huge project, expected to be operational by…

VINDICATED!

FINALLY justice is served!!!

That’s the public’s general sentiment over the Supreme Court decision to release former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo from detention.

That it was the SC that corrected an injustice to this embarrassing episode of our justice system cannot be more refreshing.

And it could not have come at a better time since it came weeks after the new President was inducted to office and less than a week before delivers his first State of the Nation Address (SONA) cannot be more reassuring.
