    Masyadong makwenta. As much I want to rant, its useless. Instead of complaining we have to act and act now.

    What good are your factories if you don't have the raw materials to use?

    In terms of food supply, rice lang and a maybe a few items self reliant ang Japan. Rice is considered a strategic commodity by the Japanese government. A kilo of rice costs around 200 pesos/kilo. If you go to a Japanese supermarket, you'll see fruits, fish/sea food from the Philippines and other ASEAN countries, meat products from the USA/Australia, etc.
    We as an agricultural country is still importing rice, sugar, corn,flour and other agricultural foodstuffs. I don't think we are that rich in food supplies. The government must embark on a serious long term program to achieve self sufficiency in food production. An independent agency that is run by people who are masters in the field of agriculture, untouchable by politicians. ( to prevent nepotism, lest they mess up the whole program)

    mahirap talaga buhay ng pinoy...iyong nakakabili ng magagarang sasakyan usually katas ng abroad iyan or mana....syempre ndi naman lahat.

    to think na sa hirap ng buhay sa pinas napipilitang mag abroad ang mga pinoy will prove na mahirap ang buhay ng pinoy sa pinas

    nagiging poor lang tayo dahil sobrang corrupt ang government offices

    bir- whether or not you pay the proper taxes is irrelevant because either way, maglalagay ka talaga sa mga bir.

    customs- undervalue or market value ideclare mo, they will still tax and maglalagay ka pa din para d ka pahirapan so talo, government in loss revenues.

    dpwh-wag na natin pagusapan mga kickbacks in this department.

    i don't mind paying higher taxes if i see where it's going like sa canada, i pay almost 50% sa taxes but atleast it's a nice place to live in so d ako nanghihinayang. i love this country and i wish i never have to leave it but kailangan nating mabuhay so when the time comes i can't live in it na, ill leave. wish that day will never come.

    mmm...

    Seriously,mahirap talaga umahon pag sobrang corrupt ang ating government. Like what KCBoy said, I don't mind paying high tax rates IF I see it being used for the improvement of the city. Eh yung simpleng pag bakbak ng kalye ilang linggo bago matapos, minsan ilang buwan tapos di pa inaayos yung trabaho.

    Sample ng mga walang kwentang pinagagastusan ng government -> Park convertion of a stretch on Rizal Ave (pang pa traffic lang and doon pagalagala mga addict), Huge christmas tree like lights in Roxas blvd. (in the stretch of Baywalk, and other parts of Manila has no street lights? Is Lito Atienza playing favorites?).
