Here we go again, all the commentators on TV talking about "Poverty Alleviation" blah blah blah...opponents say the poor are still poor (no kidding?)...admin. people talk about economic progress (yes, oaverall there has been some). But the population is just too big, and will keep expanding at a rate incompatible with really significant per-capita improvement. The World Bank projects 210 millionn Filipinos by 2050. Awful. Just considering water, metro manila will be in crisis within 7 years. Stop having big families, you free-loading, voting poor. How do you expect to better your lives if you have 4, 5, 6, 7 children?
