    everything is relative... once you have it... you'll disregard it...

    yeah, henry sy has very rich at the expense of poor contractual employees who have to look for their jobs after 5 months because henry sy doesn't want to regularize them.

    the great flood was the polar shift of the earth. that's why yun magnetic north pole at yun true north pole magkaiba. when pinatubo erupted, natakot ang buong mundo, kasi gumalaw ng bahagya ang daigdig. if the movement was greater, we could have had the next great flood just after 1992.

    but I do believe in intelligent design vs. empirical science. there is an architect out there, and that's him, God.

    Indeed. Ordinary people are suffering the consequences because of these influencials (unions, selfish politicians, leftists, nationalists, etc.). Capitalists and investors have now become ruthless because of fear from these groups.

    Kung wala sana mga yan, marami pang mga factories ang bukas ngayon na pwedeng paglipat-lipatan at pagpilian ng mga employees. Di sana nagsara mga to at nagsilipat sa Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc. Di sana lalala problema natin sa unemployment.

    1. Crabs. These are people who dream of going to a Middle East or Western country, and apply for a rubbish job they're underqualified for. When they get there, they keep talking trash about their home country and refuse to appreciate the efforts of their countrymen at home. According to their religion, Thy Must Leave Country and Refuse To Be Recognized With Thy Motherland. They think they're God's gift to man and all Philippine-based compatriots are infidels.

    What's bad about them is that they go through our schools and get trained by our own people. If they go away, the country loses its investment. At least when they leave, the bastards take their arrogance with them.

    Crabs consist mainly of the Dishonorable part (to distinguish them from the Honorable) of the upper classes of society.

    2. Leeches. These are the people who think living means asking the government or a charity or whatever to feed them and give them housing. They do absolutely nothing and rely on the rest of the country for their own survival. Like a parasite living off its host, Leeches of the society suck the country's resources that the Middle Class and Honorable Rich have worked so hard for.

    Thieves and Liars get elected because of these Leeches. They never seem to learn that they've been fooled by these corrupt people under some "people-oriented" slogan. Why do leaders tend to have an "I Will Defer To The People" attidude? It's mainly because of them.

    Leeches consist mainly of, but not limited to, the Disgusting part (to differentiate themselves from the hard-striving) of the poorer classes of society.

    2a. Leftist Militants. A subset of the "leeches", these people are distinguished from most leeches because they don't elect a "People-Oriented" politician. Instead, they oppose everything. It doesn't matter if they're in the way of people minding their own business. Always with a "I Want It My Way" attitude, they seem to never bother to understand that the system works the way it does, not because it's Evil, but because it works (most of the time). At least they say the system is Evil, but it could be simply that they're pushing their own agenda.

    Politicians? Many fall under both!

    All of these wild animals slow the progress of our country.
    Haha bla bla bla!

    To be honest it doesn't matter much if at all which country colonized you in the past. Sure, Singapore, HK, the US and Australia were all British colonies, but just as likely so as any random country you could think of. Some here could be forgetting that the British literally owned half the world at one point. Performing well and being a former British colony are completely different things and is completely coincidental.
