I am, always have been, and forever will be proud of who I am.
I literally wear it proudly on my sleeve.
Is this proof enough???
I agree with navychief and isuzu, it's bad politicos and bad businessmen who are ruining the country...this is why I quote Gerry Kaimo's battle cry:
Mabuhay ang Pilipino ! Pero Hindi lahat. Mabuhi ang Pilipino! Pero dili tanan.
It's the expats who gave RP the rating for worst corruption in Asia. We've nothing to hide naman ever since. Panahon pa ni Aguinaldo yang "bentahan", di ba?Originally posted by chowchow

Sometimes it is more economical to get branded (i.e.Para,Colt,S&W,STI/SVI,SPS-DC)pistols than clones like the ones mentioned in another thread(http://www.glocktalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=676064)because of the addt'l expenses to repair/refurbish low quality parts that came with the FA which hinders reliability. And at the end of the month when you go to the gunsmith to pick up your "scrap" 1911, it is already gold/branded "scrap" because the sum of your expenses(FA cost plus repair/refurbish/refurnish/spartparts/labor/etc)equals that of afore-mentioned toys. It has happened to me already with my Imp.Defence HiCap ext.extractor .45ACP 1911.

Sad....but true!!...We need not go far. In this forum, a lot of gun-owners want to be indentified with their Para-O, STI/SVI, Kimbers..etc. rather than with their SAMs or Armscors..:sad:
Bro, you were saying that Pilipino is taught everywhere in archipelago which erodes the other dialects and you were asking "but how do we communicate with each other is the instant question..." English which is going to be the universal language if the Mandarins learn it, which is spoken quite understably by almost anybody in RP...but of course you must first be a master of your regional tongue. Taga Ililo ka gali, ako half Panay(mother)half Negros(father; kung pwede lang Ilonggo na aton national dialect, ok lang sa akon (Eng.trans.: So you are from Iloilo/So you are Ilonggo...if it becomes the national dialect of RP, it's fine with me) na!Originally posted by atmarcella
uniformity.....that word reminds me of the movie "ants".....are we that same kind of society???should'nt it be "unity through diversity"?
but how do we communicate with each other is the instant question...
i would never advocate the use of my native tongue as our national language, that would make me just another regionalistic bum!if it becomes the national dialect of RP, it's fine with me

i would be no better than the tagalog screaming at the top of his lung that tagalog should be our national language.
my suggestion is to instill a deep sense of pride in our countrymen they should be taught the beauty of their native tongue's and then they should be taught another language so that they can survive if they plan to immigrate to a big city, if they're from the south teach them bisaya, if form the north teach them tagalog, if they're lucky enough to reach 2nd year college, baliktarin mo, teach the southerners tagalog and the northerners bisaya, that way if they go to each others territory, they can do as the romans do!
i am basically against just choosing 1 language and making it a national language!!!
but going back to the subject of pride....i still think that deep pride comes from knowing the beauty of ones roots!!!
This is what I have experienced in Bacolod. I did a little experiment: People there could speak good English and Tagalog; but when I gave my friends a misallete in Hiligaynon and asked them to read, they couldn't even complete a sentence without stumbling.Originally posted by maskytrading

+1 sir, pag maka attend ako ng misa sa hiligaynon, ang reaction ko ****, mas gusto ko pa english mas naiintindihan ko pa, it is really sad that we were not taught our native tongue when we were studying, hiligaynon is the formal form of illonggo, it is sad because "without language culture is gone"Originally posted by isuzu

My friends thought I was "buki" or baduy when they saw me reading a magazine in Hiligaynon. But I found out that the dialect we presently speak in Negros is very far compared to the real Hiligaynon. There are lots of words that we hardly use, and you have to go to the rural areas to hear people speak the real Hiligaynon. To me, it's music to the ears. After all, our dialects are our heritage.
That is why I don't answer my son if he talks to me in English. That's the only way he could learn the dialect. We converse in Ilonggo when we're at home.

Sa KKIA pagka nakita nila ang kababayan nilang Arabo na naka-pila at ikaw ay isang hamak na pinoy,pakitan,india,bangladesh or srilankan PAUUNAHIN NILA YUNG KALAHI NILA. may one-time na kahit Westerner naunahan ng Arabo, sambit lang nung Westerner ay B$#@!$$.
Dito na lang sa example na ito, basang-basa mo na bakit lugmok ang Pilipinas. Walang PRIDE bottomline palagi PERA.
Just my 2 petots. [/QUO
Dito rin sa States, depende kong itim, mexicano o puti ang naka harap mo. Tuloy tuloy kong kalahi nila.
Sa Pilipinas lang ang mataas ang tingin sa puti kasi dollars ang dateng. It is sad.
Ang mga babae natin pina aspire na foreigners ang kasama nila. Kahit mga DOM and dateng. Go figure .

kuya maskytrading, buying hi-end/branded pistols is not a guarantee that it will not break...or it will perform better compared to the less branded. Of course, there's always a presumption that it's superiors to others because of the pricetag it carries...but somehow, those will end up in the hands of gunsmiths for repair and tweaking. I know a lot of shooters who have their S_I's and Canadian made pistols ended up with the gunsmiths for repairs..There's no such thing as "perfect gun" although GAston Glock claimed to have one..:supergrin:
