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.
Mawalang galang na po. Saang part po ng anatomy po ba yan ipininta? very colorful. i like it. :thumbsup:

I THINK MR. DUCAT READ OUR THREAD....


Hostage drama in Philippines ends; children freed

"ROTTEN POLITICAL SYSTEM"

"I am so sorry I took these children in a violent action to call the attention of the Filipino people to open their minds to the political reality," Ducat said.

"There's so much corruption in the country. We're number one in Asia in corruption," he said in a speech which lasted for at least 15 minutes.

"I am calling on the Filipino people to stop the rotten political system. Don't rely on the politicians for your future. No one can help you but yourselves.

That guy wanted to air his views...but he HAD NO RIGHT TO THREATEN AND ENDANGER THE LIVES OF THOSE CHILDREN.

As much as I agree with some of his sentiments, the fact of the matter is he USED the children in that bus just like the politicians he hates so much use the poor to get into office.

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?

Sa topic naman, I don't think it's inferiority we're suffering from as a people, just bad leadership. Misinterpreting our natural "hospitality" trait to inferiority is plain wrong.

Maybe our being "independent" too soon after the war did us in. I think our postwar leaders never really got around to re-establishing the notion that it's the government that serves the people, not the other way around. When we were bombed by imperial Japan back to the medieval ages, tyrants, aka warlords, were the name of the political game. We never did get around to trancending that anachronistic political format. Puro "aliping nangingilid/namamahay" ulit ang mayorhia. Hence, the filipino "servile" attitude..

SA ATIN MAGMUMULA...


ANG TAMAAN AY HUWAG SANANG MAGAGALIT!

Tayo Rin ang May Kagagawan?

Sabi MO, ang gobyerno natin ay palpak

Sabi MO, ang mga batas natin ay sinauna

Sabi MO, ang lokal na pamahalaan natin ay hindi maganda ang pagkolekta ng basura at ang paglilinis ng mga lugar.

Sabi MO, hindi gumagana ang mga telepono, katatawanan ang kalagayan ng trapiko, at hindi nakakarating sa paroroonan ang mga sulat,

Sabi MO, parang nasadlak sa basura ang ating buong bansa

Sabi Mo, sabi MO, sabi MO.

E ano'ng ginagawa mo tungkol dito?

Kumuha ka ng isang taong papunta sa Singapore.
Bigyan mo sya ng pangalan, yung sa IYO.
Bigyan MO sya ng mukha, yung sa IYO.

Lumabas KA sa airport nang pinakamatino mong sarili na maipagmamalaki sa mundo..

Sa Singapore
Hindi KA nagtatapon ng upos ng sigarilyo sa kalye.

Ipinagmamalaki MO ang magaganda nilang underpass.

Nagbabayad KA ng mga 60 pesos para makapagmaneho sa Orchard Road,(parang EDSA) mula alas 5 hanggang alas 8 ng gabi.

Bumalik KA sa parking lot para bayaran ang parking tiket mo kung napasobra ka ng oras sa shopping o sa pagkain sa isang restaurant.

Sa Singapore, wala Kang sinasabi, meron ba?

Hindi MO susubukang kumain sa lantad kapag Ramadan sa Dubai.

Hindi MO susubukang lumabas ng bahay na walang takip ang mukha sa Jeddah.

Hindi MO susubukang lagyan ang isang empleyado ng kumpanya ng telepono sa London para mapunta sa ibang tao ang mga long distance na tawag mo.

Hindi MO susubukang lumampas ng 90 kilometers per hour sa Washington, at saka sasabihin sa pulis "Alam mo kung sino ako?"

Bakit di MO subukang dumura o magtapon ng upos ng sigarilyo o balat ng kendi sa mga kalye sa Tokyo?

Bakit hindi MO subukang bumili ng pekeng mga papeles sa Boston tulad ng ginagawa sa Recto?

Pinag-uusapan pa rin natin IKAW.

Ikaw na gumagalang at sumusunod sa patakarang banyaga sa ibang bansa pero hindi makasunod sa sarili mong lugar.

IKAW na tapon ng tapon sa kalye pagtuntong mo pa lang sa lupa.

Kung IKAW ay nakikisalamuha at pumupuri ng systema sa bansang banyaga, bakit hindi KA maging ganyan sa Pilipinas?

Minsan sa isang panayam, ang dating Subic Administrator na si Gordon ay may katwiran ng sinabi
nyang "Ang mga aso ng mayayaman ay pinalalakad at pinadudumi ng may-ari sa kalye, tapos sila mismo ang pumupuna sa may katungkulan sa kapalpakan sa paglilinis ng mga kalye.

Ano ang gusto nilang gawin ng mga may katungkulan?

Magwalis tuwing makakaramdam ng hindi maganda sa tiyan ang kanilang alaga?

Sa America, bawat may-ari ng alaga ay dapat maglinis matapos ang pagdumi ng aso.

Ganuon din sa Japan.

Gagawin ba ng mga Pilipino yun dito? Tama sya.

Pumupunta tayo sa botohan para pumili ng gobyerno at pagkatapos nuon ay tinatanggal na natin sa sarili ang responsibilidad.

Uupo tayo sa isang tabi at paghihintay ng pagkalinga at umaasa na gagawin ng gobyerno ang lahat habang wala tayong iniaalay.

Umaasa tayo sa pamahalaan na maglinis, ngunit hindi naman tayo titigil sa pagtatapon ng basura sa kung saan-saan, at ni hindi tayo pupulot ng anumang piraso ng papel para itapon sa basurahan.

Pagdating sa mga panlipunang talakayin tulad nang hindi pagiging tapat sa kasal, sa mga dalagang ina, sa pagtatalik ng walang basbas ng kasal, at iba pa, maingay tayong nagpoprotesta ngunit patuloy naman nating ginagawa ang mga ito.

Sa sandaling tayo ay mangulila kapag nasa labas tayo ng bansa, naghahanap tayo ng aliw sa iba, kadalasan sa kapwa rin natin Pilipino,na hindi natin iniisip ang ating katungkulan na ating sinumpaan sa ating pamilya nuong narito pa tayo.

Tapos sinisisi natin ang pamahalaan kapag nakikita natin ang karahasan sa kabataan, pagkagumon sa bawal na gamot, at iba pa, samantalang sinimulan natin ito sa hindi pagpansin sa pangangailangan ng ating mga anak ng tunay na pag-gabay at responsibilidad ng isang magulang.

Ang sabi natin, "Ang buong sistema ang kailangang magbago.

Ano ang magagawa kung ako lang ang magpapabago sa aking pamilya?" E sino ang magbabago ng sistema?

Ano ba ang mga sankap ng sistema? Napakaginhawa sa atin na ang sistema ay binubuo ng ating mga kapitbahay, mga ibang tahanan, ibang syudad, ibang komunidad, at ang pamahalaan.

Pero hindi kasama IKAW at AKO.

Pagdating sa ating pagkakaroon ng positibong handog sa sistema, ikinakandado natin ang sarili, pati na ang ating pamilya sa loob ng isang ligtas na pugad at tumatanaw na lang tayo sa malayong mga lugar at bansa at naghihintay ng isang Mr. Clean na dumating at maghatid na mga himala. O lumilikas tayo.

Parang mga tamad na duwag na hindi pinatatahimik ng ating mga takot, tumatakbo tayo sa Amerika upang makisalo sa kanilang luwalhati at purihin sa kanilang sistema.

Pero pag naging masalimuot sa New York tatakbo tayo sa Japan o Hongkong. Pag nagkahirapan ang paghanap ng trabaho sa Hongkong, sakay agad tayo sa susunod na eroplano patungong Gitnang Silangan.

Pag may digmaan sa Gulf War, inaasahan nating masagip at mapauwi ng Gobyernong Pilipino.

Lahat ay handang umabuso at gumahasa sa bansa. Walang nag-iisip na handugan ang sistema.
Ang konsyensya natin ay nakasanla sa pera.

Mga mahal kong kababayan, ang sulating ito ay matinding nakakakislot ng isipan, nangangailangan ng maraming pagmumuni-muni, at tumutusok din sa konsyensya.

Medyo inuulit ko lang ayon sa ating salita ang mga salita ni J.F.Kennedy sa kanyang kabansa upang maitugma sa ating mga Pilipino.

"Itanong natin kung ano ang magagawa natin sa ating bansang Pilipinas at gawin ang nararapat upang ang Pilipinas ay maging tulad ng America at ibang kanlurang Bansa ngayon."

Gawin natin kung ano ang kailangan ng Pilipinas sa atin.

Ipasa ito sa lahat ng Pilipino.

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. Kakatipid, yun, napamahal pa kadulodulohan!(Eng.trans.: Buying "clones" or unbranded pistols to economize will cost you more in the long run.)

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!:)

i would never advocate the use of my native tongue as our national language, that would make me just another regionalistic bum!

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!!!

+1, bro atmarcella. :thumbsup:

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:

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.

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.

Airport ng Saudi KKIA at Airport ng Pilipinas NAIA.

Sa NAIA pag naka pila ka, at may dumating na Westerner or ibang lahi nauuna or pinauuna sa counter yun dahil sa dalang dollar.

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.

+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"

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 .

===============================================================

Hello, royal glockster...Yes, I agree with you that buying high end branded pistols is not a guarantee that it will not break nor it will perform better...If you use such branded pistols frequently it will eventually break but it will generally/mostly outlast a "scrap" version...And as to performance; nib branded pistols will again generally/mostly out-perform as to accuracy and reliability 1911 "scrap" clones..."Branded" meaning those manufacturers whose product cost more because of higher quality control all throughout i.e. material steel used for the frame, slide, internal parts, barrel etc; fitting and dimensions are more exact to the hundreds if not thousands of a millimeter, better external finish (plating and honing) which requires more man hours of labor...The result is an accurate and reliable pistol but with a higher price. Is the price worth it, usually it is yes with the "branded" name whether it is about cars, watches, pistols etc., simply because the "branded" company wants to protect its name. But of course, there are "lemons" which are exceptions but they are far and few.

Some manufacturers sell products which are as good if not sometimes better than the branded ones at a lower price(read: less if not very little profit} is because they want to make or establish their name in the market so that eventually they become a "brand"/branded themselves; but can they maintain their price?

Buying genuine "branded" products instead of locally made ones is not about the "colonial mentality issue", it is about taste, it is about aesthetics and it is also about quality.;)
