(Topic: How Ferdinand Marcos’s Martial Law Continues Hurting Filipinos to This Day)

A well written blogger made a comment about the Marcos adherents. I agree with his comments. It's as if those adherents have no idea how evil Marcos was. In fact they do. But they still choose to champion him. Which is not a surprise if you think about it. Even Satan, the symbol of everything dark and evil have followers. They are called Satanists. So why not Marcos? These followers are called Hirelings. They are agents of Hate.

RAMON GONZALES: You wrote: "The Marcos still have a big property in Long Beach, Long Island, NY and another building in the downtown business section here New York city, that I don't think the Philippine government even knows about." To my understanding the Crown building on 5th Avenue had been sold and the proceeds from the sale of that piece of property was divided among the claimants. The three other properties, were the object of foreclosure proceedings. As to the waterfront estate in Long Island (14 bedrooms with 17th bathrooms) that has been sold in '87. It is up for sale now for $4.95 Million if Binay is interested in buying it.

RAMON GONZALES: I could name for you the other properties of the Marcos dynasty that the government is aware of: (1) Herald Center shopping mall on Broaday on 33rd and 34th Street ( 2) 40th Wall street (downtown on Nassau St.) (3) 200 Madison Avenue on 35th and 36th st. All of the above are in New York City. The money that was stashed away is hard to find. They are in different countries that are considered as safe haven. ERAP made the mistake of keeping his money in local banks under the name of depositor PIDAL so that he could check his bank balance daily. Hi hi hi

1) THE TREASURE OF YAMASHITA. There were reports that in one of the houses owned by Marcos some people have seen bars of gold stacked up from floor to ceiling. Even Imelda Marcos would at times make cryptic remarks about the amount of gold they own. Those who saw it swear by it. Those who did not refuse to believe it. Yet in the 80s Marcos assigned Fabian Ver to oversee a treasure hunt called the Teresa Project. This Treasure Hunt was complete with professional Gold Hunters. And even a Seer who was supposed to be able to predict where the gold could be found. According to a member of this group they found the gold. OR DID THEY?…(cont)

2) YAMASHITA: Actually the hoards of gold was found in 3 Places. 2 on land and 1 at sea BUT as told by the Treasure Hunter they NEVER saw the actual Gold. The Gold finding equipment just beeped and then some digging would go on. But as soon as they have dug up enough dirt Ver would stop it, secure the site and post soldiers so no one could get near it. The question is WHY? Well, you see this whole PALABAS was a Zarzuela to establish that Marcos had found Yamashita's gold. So that if anyone asked where he got it he could point to the discoveries complete with witnesses. That way Marcos could not be accused of stealing it..(cont)

3) The truth is Marcos ransacked and plundered the gold from the Central Bank of the PHL, had it melted, then had it recast to look like WWII Treasure. The equipments beeped at the sites because there really was some gold purposely buried there to lend it a sense of reality. This is the so-called Treasure of Yamashita. It came to light when one of the hunters, a foreigner did not get paid and revealed everything to the then Philippine News. If true Filipinos could get a glimpse of the evil genius that Marcos was. If true then one can tell that Marcos did not intend to do anything for the country or the Filipinos. He merely wanted to rob them.

The Marcoses will always win ELECTIONS (unopposed) and hold political offices in Ilocos Norte and Romualdeses in Leyte. That is true with political families (no different from the Binays in Makati, the Villars in Paranaque, the Revillas in Cavite, etc). They have built their own political niches, so to speak. They are seen as ROCK STARS in their respective turfs.

JORGE VILLANUEVA: I would credit Marcos for three things: (1) promoting tourism (2) inducing diaspora that led to the OFW's massive contribution to the economy (3) the infrastructure initiative. Too bad that the rice sufficiency program (Masagana 99) and the energy independence initiative from fossil fuel (Bataan Nuclear Plant) and hydroelectric power were never pursued with vigor.

The intention of Marcos was noble but the implementation and desired outcome failed miserably. Marcos got so intoxicated with power and greed until he realized that they too have their limits. The assassination of Aquino was a miscalculation which could have been hatched during the time when his medical condition was affecting his capacity to functional rationally. The assassination of Aquino broke the camel's back as we used to say in good English (and not in [someone's] carabao/tamaraw English- tama raw siya). It awakened the fervor of the people for a democracy and freedom. It highlighted the abuses in human rights by the military. The people saw the pillaging of the nation's coffers and the destruction of the nation's heritage or patrimony. IT HAD TO STOP SOMEWHERE!

it seems Marcos or no Marcos, Philippines still corrupt, rape , homicide and yes squatters...I don't agree that Philippines is a rising star of Asia (really Pnoy). Compared to Singapore, Malaysia, Japan and Thailand is he joking? Lets all blame it to Marcos, politician steal because of Marcos. it seems the only people that benefitted from Marcos' removal ...guess what, are same people that served under his regime...like Erap, Lacson, Enrile and many more.

Despite the atrocious memory of the Marcos regime, the irony is, with the country's culture of corruption and inept political system the family may hold absolute hold on the country again. That's not altogether impossible as the family from the mother and the siblings are back into power in the local and national levels. Once they hold sway over the country, the history of Marcos regime won't be the same again

Someone mentioned the Quintero expose-"This was an revelation by a delegate from Samar (?) named Quintero that Imelda was giving away "envelopes" to delegates as bribes.." Eduardo Quintero was the ConCon delegate from Leyte who in May 19,1972-- before the crucial vote on Presidential vs. Parliamentary system for the Philippines-- dropped revealed that he received a total of PHP 11,150 inside 18 envelops to vote for the parliamentary system. Of course, Quintero was persecuted/prosecuted complete with planted evidence and vilified (- not by N. Tupas) - but at the end he was cleared by the SC and was even named in the Bantayog ng Mga Bayani roster!! I don't think Tanda, Sexy and Pogi have a snowball's chance in hell to be included in that roster-- ever!

It is undeniable that the 20 yrs. of Marcos dictatorship has resulted in massive economic losses to PH due to corruption, compared to its predecessors, the D. Macapagal, Garcia, Quirino, etc. previous administrations. The C. Aquino and F. Ramos administrations may have revived the PH economy, but the weaknesses of the succeeding administrations may have exposed the long ill effects of 400 years of foreign colonialism and denomination of PH. We can only hope that everybody correct or erase the ill effects of colonialism, among others, the eradication of rampant corruption, and the maintenance of moderate growth in PH population with the RH law, without the interference of internal or external forces.

I was in Philippines during entire Marcos era, martial law days And after Aquino was murdered at the airport Tarmac. Martial law days were peaceful especially in the beginning. Lawlessness abated. Philippines seemed in position to grab economic prosperity, Filipinos were happy and proud. As the rule progressed, things slowly deteriorated again. Philippines needs iron hand, but a humane hand. It needs rule of law to be applied with impunity. Marcos was perfect but his minions and corrupt sidekicks dominated allowing Philippines slip into the sad state. Now Philippines is dangerous place. At least then only Marcos and his cronies stole, now all of senators and congressmen, cabinet members steal and are massively corrupt.

MIJARES: When Mijares disappeared his book became a real hot item. Everyone wanted to get a hold of a copy. But the Book suddenly disappeared from circulation. What happened? Well, some people bought ALL copies in circulation. In the PHL possession of the book means Torture in Bicutan. And why is it that it never got re-printed after Marcos was deposed? Because the author (Mijares) could not authorize it. There was never even a presumption of death in his case. None of his surviving family wanted to have anything to do with the book. It's as if Mijares did not come home and that was the end of it.

You folks should use a balance sheet and compare the country before and after Marcos. Like Ronnie use to say, are you better off now or 50 YEARS ago. It's 50 years ago for me. The people in office now were children or not even born when the man ruled the country. You have to be honest with yourselves. Be like the Germans after WW2. Hitler did what he did in their name with their full knowledge and support. It's the same with you, your politicians are not hiding anything from you.

Palibhasa hindi kinuha sa bank account nyo, di nyo masabing ninakawan kayo ano? Kaya walang magawa ang matalino sa mga mangmang. Ano kayang doctor ang gagamot sa mga sakit ng mga Pilipinong ganyan?

"Let's face truth, in the beginning Marcos' intention was noble and Uncle Sam was with him all along but he lost his way in the "matuwid na daan"." Such deductive logic is dangerous. The United State has supported many dictators like Saddam, Shah of Iran, Ngo Din Diem of Vietnam, Somoza, Papa Doc of Haiti, and even Idi Amin. US government does not work on "matuwid na daan" but for convenience, political ,and economic expediency. Learn your world history my friend before you could claim matalino (super galing) ka.

Even if Supreme Court stops the Senate hearing on Binay two inconvertible facts have already come out that the Binays are corrupt and these are: 1. The fact that a bidder they have used for two separate structures and occasions is not qualified to be a bidder. The owner denying that he did not bid may still be open to discussion but not their being unqualified. Sa pagmamadali nina Binay nakalimutan ito. 2. That Linlingan's (Binay's fixer) name and signature is all over transactions on the supposed Army lot where he is not supposed to be there. Binay's should resign.

On Binay as president, I agree he should not be president and this mockery of a leader out of government, as he represent contemptible greed. The whole family smells of hypocrisy and use manipulation as an art, like the Marcoses. Show of donations of cakes, sister cities, improvement to a city that is already on the scale of foreign investors. they have the nerve to tell their constituents, that it is "THE FAMILIES" ability to govern etc. However, the real blame is on the voters, who need to wake up, show integrity on who they vote, not line their pockets short term.

The Binays through their lawyers are claiming that the public hearings being conducted by the Blue Ribbon Committee with the regards to the overpriced 11 storey building office - parking facillty are ABUSIVE and not an aid to legislation. The hearings per se are "inquisitional" in nature where the committee's objective is to get to the facts of the case. As the saying goes TRUTH HURTS. The committe is simply exercising its oversight function. WHY BE AFRAID IF THERE IS NOTHING TO HIDE, VP AND SON?! Your behavior is telling us there are many skeletons hidden your closet.

To [someone] who faulted Cory for appointing Binay. First of all we already agreed that Cory had no qualifications to be President. She was merely an "emotional" choice. When she appointed Binay, the latter had a reputation as a Marcos fighter, from the streets to the courts, for years. In short Binay had impeccable credentials. No one faulted Cory THEN because NO one foresaw the future. So how could Cory be held accountable, even in retrospect? How many OICs did she appoint that tuned out to be crooked? It is heartbreaking to see a Patriot turn into a Traitor. An Honest man turn into a Crook. But it happens…all the time, especially in the PHL. That's what happened to Binay. But he alone should be held responsible.

Kung si Erap, dadami mahirap "Mahirap para kay Erap" kasi pagyumaman sila, wala ng boboto sa kanya. Marcos style naman si Binay.. daming dummies.. dayaan na naman. Kung si Bongbong, ipapalibing si Ama sa libingan ng Bayani at yamang pag-aari ng gobyerno walang makakabawi. Si Mar Roxas, tipong totoo at ipagpapatuloy ang tamang layuning maiangat ang Pilipinas.

How to make each Filipino a millionaire? 200 million population. > 2 trillion budget. Military dependent on USA for protection. Instead of giving these monies to senators and congressmen in endless strings of pork barrels that only end up in their pockets. Why not just give 1 million to each Filipino citizen. That's only 200 million. A drop in national budget of trillions. It just doesn't make sense why any Filipino would be poor.

Sam Juan: Now you're talking! You are the first person who understood the issues in one of my postings in this case fake, imitation or illegal products. You are right! I'm myself don't understand why these makers are not marketing the products under their own trademarks or brands but in stead illegally used other's brand. Is it because it is tough to compete with well-known and established brands? or may be it is quick and easy money that way at lesser cost? Or is it because it is hard to crack human mentality; their belief that branded named products are always better? (not really!). Does above answers your question? BTW, better believe yourself their "fake", "imitated" are as good. As I said, they probably made those famous branded products after all.

[Someone], you claimed you are based in Hilo Hilo Panay. But you may not be really, right? Let me explain the complexity of branded products. You are aware that in the U.S. there are, say, supermarkets that sold goods with their own brands (names), right? Do they really have their own factories manufacturing these goods (film, batteries, detergents (laundry/dishes) canned veggies, ice cream, bacons and more)? But they are as good, too as branded goods. You can bet your last aluminum centavo or cent, the companies that made it for them have well-known brands in the markets. Now go back to those "fake", "imitation" ladies bags. Can you see the picture clearer?

To [someone] who said Aquino wants a term extension. No, he does not. I never heard him say anything but retiring and looking forward to it. It is concerned people that are asking for a 2nd term for him because Binay appears unbeatable. There is no one in the horizon that will not be flattened by Binay, except perhaps Joseph Estrada. Let me just put it to you this way: If it comes down to a choice between Aquino and Binay, or Aquino and Erap who would you choose? Honestly.

"In the news: "Philippines Breaks World Record For Tree Planting". Finally, Pinoys woke up to their senses. I remember when mountains, from a ship, in the distance looked bald, denuded by loggers with replanting replacements. I hope marginal farmers who are still practices "kaingin" will not cut those "seedlings" down." was the comment made by a 73 year old man. While it might be true that the forests have lost their trees but this man had never lost his teeth and his hair (the brain wirings are little bit loose). The nation as a whole had never stopped planting anyway. Husbands keep on planting and the nation kept harvesting more babies!

If the product is really that good (quality wise) -- then why "pass" it on under a known trade mark and charging less instead of having its own trade mark brand and charging more ( to pay for the good quality material and workmanship at least)?

[Someone]. Let me tell you lesser-known brand names are as good as well-known brand names. Factories of well-known brand names give as much as from 25% to 50% discount to their dealers. Some dealers (such as dept. stores, supermarkets, drugstores chain) propose to the manufacturers they want to sell the products in their own names. No problem to the manufacturers. They will make the products as good at 100% normal cost with the dealers name(s). If they have their (manufacturer) name on it, they would have sold it to the dealer(s) at 25% or 50% less, right? So they make their money already. The dealers are not competing with them because the more the dealers sold, the more it will order. Quality wise it is as good.

To know where this politicians or high ranking military people got their riches? Let us have them all undergo lifestyle checks. Sa aming probinsya ay merong mga politiko na may rantsohan and piggery and malalapad na lupa na may mga mansion pa. Kaya duda ang maraming tao kung saan nanggaling itong sobrang kayaman nila ngayon. Seguro daw galing ito sa mga PDAP or DAP na dapat mapa sa tao through infrastructures for the good of the people pero instead ibinulsa nitong mga politiko and military people. So it's high time na malaman ang totoo. Pres. Aquino let's do the lifestyle check to all Politicians and High Officials and huwag mo lang sabihin na wala kang nakita na nag abuso si Purisima para hindi lalabas na kumakampi ka sa mga kaalyado mong corrupt kungdi parehas ka sa lahat.

Baguhin natin ang pag allocate ng fundings sa mga proyekto. Huwag nating idaan sa mga politiko and pag allocate ng budget sa mga projects dahil seguradong mawawala kung hindi man 13% ng fundings ay baka sobra pa. Most of our politicians cannot be trusted anymore when it comes to money because they'll always divert some or the bigger portion to their coffers. I am calling to all legislators to enact a law that will change the present system so that check and balance will be enacted to ensure people's money will go the project not the politicians pockets.

I was involved as bookkeeper for "construction in progress" in a private project P7 Million (in todays money about P45 M). Check this out: Monthly, the contractor submit a bill for the work done. An outside engineer, our own engineer and auditor visually inspect according to the bill. If they agree, they will approved the bill and forward it to me. I'll initial the bill, cut the check for the amount and present the check to the boss for his signature. I'll make the journal entries to record the progress of the project. This is done (monthly) until the project is finished. The book tells whether the project is overpaid/underpaid, in this case it was a P7M project. It was on target add or minus a "few aluminum centavos". Why is it hard to see an overpaid projects in govt. while in progress?

Deo of New York the only time this reforestation program will succeed if the Philippines government will allow private ownership of reforestation program and allow the private planters to harvest mature trees selectively in ten to fifteen years. This government sponsored reforestation is nothing but show and press release and of course people in the government makes money from the suppliers of the tree seedlings. Another racket in the making.

Jejomar Binay Should Never Become President of the Philippines

n our July 25th editorial we asked if Vice President Jejomar Binay should be the next president of the Philippines. In this editorial we arrive at the definitive conclusion that that Binay should not be elected president. Since our last editorial, more witnesses have come forward with more allegations against the embattled Vice President. But our decision not to support Binay’s presidential bid is based on irrefutable public acts that in our opinion disqualify him from the presidency. Published 09/16/2014


Will Pacman be China’s Pitchman?

The news was officially announced by China Central Television (CCTV) in Beijing on August 25: Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, the “national fist” of the Philippines and the winner of eight world boxing titles, signed an agreement with the Chinese government “to establish a string of boxing academies” all over China with the aim of helping to “grow the sport in China and provide opportunities for young people to take part."

Napoles Prays 2,000 Rosaries a Day, So Does She Get a Free Pass to Heaven?

After leaving her August 15th bail hearing at the Sandiganbayan, Janet Lim Napoles showed the media the marble rosary she personally received from recently canonized Saint Pope John Paul II. Her lawyer Stephen David later disclosed to media that Napoles prays 2,000 rosaries a day. Given that a day has only 24 hours or 1,440 minutes, Napoles would have to complete an entire rosary in less than a minute praying non-stop for an entire day…every day. Atty. David also pointed out that Napoles paid for the schooling of at least 200 priests and helped construct many Catholic churches. Published 08/30/2014
Should President Aquino Get a Second Term as President?

Many Filipinos today are realizing that the single, six-year presidential term as prescribed in the 1987 Constitution is woefully inadequate for a good president like Benigno S. Aquino III. The delegates who wrote that provision in the Constitution must have still been reeling from the almost 20 years of “kleptocratic” rule of strongman Ferdinand Marcos when they decided that one term was enough for any future Philippine president. Four years—the presidential term at the time—would be too short; eight too long. Published 08/23/2014
China Owns the Entire South China Sea? What are They Smoking—Opium?

The arrogance of China is becoming readily apparent with each passing day. With their newly acquired economic and military power the Chinese appear unrestrained in their assertiveness towards their neighbors. China, instead of positioning itself as a 21st century superpower appears to be turning back the clock resembling more and more the 12th century empire of Genghis Khan and the Mongol hordes who conquered most of Eurasia...just because they could.

On Her 5th Death Anniversary, We Say 'Thanks for Nothing Cory Aquino'

The passage of time has a way of distilling reality and bringing out truths that are sometimes hidden or lost by present circumstances. Case in point is the overwhelming level of admiration many Filipinos have for former President Corazon Aquino. When she passed away in 2009, the entire nation seemed beside itself in grief. Her casket was mobbed by thousands of mourners as it slowly made its way through the streets of Metro Manila to its final resting place at the Manila Memorial Park in Parañaque. Published 08/02/2014
The Failure of Philippine Education Is Now Staring Us in the Face

Will the Philippines Ever Become a Developed Country? The short answer to that is no—at least not in our lifetime. While the country has of late improved it credit ratings as evidenced by upgrades from Moody's, Fitch, and Standard & Poor's all that perceived progress is illusory. In the Fifties and Sixties, when the Philippines was undeniably the country at the top of the heap in Southeast Asia, people said it would always be the most industrialized country in the region.
