(Topic: Manny Pacquiao Should Not Be Given a Tax Exemption)

In the PHL it's not easy to tell who is more ridiculous - the performer or the audience. In this case a Senator of the Republic is displaying his childish idol-worship by filing a Bill that would impoverish the filipino people some more. And to think that he would use the Senate's precious time for this foolishness! This Senator is also a Bar Topnotcher, supposedly. There is no legal violation in what he is doing. But it reveals his lack of moral scruples & concern for the poor. In the PHL the higher the leaders go the more idiotic they become. Sad!

It is repugnant that a Senator would propose that a tax break would be in order. He should resign if this is the best legislation he can propose. To say that Manny is more important that any other is absurd and the idea that wealth deserves privilege, beyond what they already experience, is an outrage. Manny while enjoying an elevated status should come out, also as a representative of the people, and say that we will not approve nor accept any special favors. He should state that he wants to pay his full share just as if he were a bus driver, bank teller, store clerk, or contractor.

Wow! Never again will Filipinos ever elect the likes of Mr. Koko Pimentel. Just like his middle name Koko, voters will likely think Pimentel is koko in the head. Forget Koko if his name will ever come up again in any election year.

Suddenly, Sen Koko looked like a Moron. So much has already been given Pacquiao, honors he did not deserve, calling him a 'hero', awarding him rank in the military and degree in education. Yes he placed the Philippines in the map but this was just consequence of his ambition to become boxing champion and earn riches. What is in there for us to give recognition. He earned close to a billion pesos during the time of Undoy and gave a measly P1M to the victims. Has he made some sort of sacrifice to merit such accolade? As for me, I don't feel elated to be recognized as coming from the same country where boxing champions thrive.

The tax Mr. Pacquiao should owe the Philippines is one of his smaller expenses, and should be paid, no questions asked. All one has to do is total all the time he has spent in the ring and the amount he has earned to realize he earns more in a minute than most Filipinas earn in a year.

We must appreciate the fact that Manny Pacquiao had endured the most extreme forms of poverty, selflessness in helping others, & fight for a grander scheme of things. Manny now walks a different path as a legitimate billionaire. So, when it comes to his financial obligations he must not excluded from it. It is a if he has attained some king of national hero status. If he's a source of pride or a symbol of hope for others, then, let it be. To exempt him from paying due taxes will give the wrong impression among the millions of Filipino taxpayers. If he has to pay he must pay...no ifs, buts, or whatever.

Softhearted senator and most Filipinos. Pacquiao is a joke and a tax evader - look at his smiley face, so happy he got friends who'll do anything for him. That's one purpose for being a congressman - connection, connection at malakas na connection sa congresso. Truckloads of complimentary tickets to Las Vegas will be coming soon. Pimentel may pusong mamon - sana ganyang ka rin kabait sa asawa mo.

Those who are earnings should pay taxes period. Who is Pacquiao to be given especially treatments? His donations can be claimed when he files his taxes. Kaya walang nangyayari sa ating bansa dahil sa ganyan mga bagay. Nonsense ideas or suggestions. Gamitin sa magandang paraan ang ibabayad niya such building more schools, hospitals, and reserve for emergency such typhoons at di binubulsa para sila ang makinabang.

Re TAX Exemption for M Pacquaio..I'm not in favor of a tax exemption. because once you do that for one person there will be others who also ask for exemption. We are a Democracy everyone should be treated equally no special tax exemptions.. But under current laws Manny can donate to charitable institutions such amounts as limited by law on charitable contributions. Manny has to set aside at least 10% o his net winnings to a Charitable org. As we know charitable contributions are standard in our itemized deductions.

I wonder how this Senator will react if Pacquiao is knocked out by Mayweather? And what Bills he would file in the Senate then? Is this guy angling to be Pacquiao's running mate when the latter runs for President? The hero worship this Senator gives Pacquiao is discomforting. It makes me retch. I hope & pray Pacquiao wins of course but let's put things in perspective. His earnings are taxable & he should pay taxes for it. No exceptions!

No need to pass special law to give Pacman's foreign earnings tax exempt status. All Pacman has to do is apply for a certification that he is an OFW. Read the definition of and "OFW" in the BIR rules an implementing order regarding the OFW law passed by Congress. Pacman will fit into the definition.

The actuations of this Senator just goes to prove that Pacquiao will SURELY win the Presidency when the time comes for him to run. If a Senator of the Republic could behave like a child worshipping a hero imagine the tens of millions of voters? This Senator unwittingly points out what's wrong with the Filipinos. They do not know what to do with their celebrities. Making them bigger than life is not enough. They have to be designated as National Idols.

This Senator obviously does not respect the feelings of hard working, tax paying Filipinos like the OFWs. He is prepared to waive the taxes due the country from a Billionaire but not the taxes coming from the little people. What are you gonna do with the PHL? You either vote for a Thieving, Unqualified Artista or you vote for a Bar Topnotcher who does not know his priorities and has no concern for his constituents.

The Philippines is a contracting party with the United States with regards to income earned by non-residents in the United States (dual taxation). To my understanding 30% is withheld from the declared income earned in the US and 35% if earned in the Philippines. Article 17 applies to Pacquiao in that treaty. In other words was it necessary to grant tax exemption privilege to Pacquiao domestically when US had taken already the first bite? Why are we making this as an issue if we are a signatory to a dual taxation avoidance agreement with the United States on this matter? I do not see the relevance of this editorial piece. Please illuminate my mind.

You mention in your article that Mohammad Ali was not given tax break, but Ali did not have Social services serving Americans. In the word of Bob Arum, Pacquiao extensive social services to the Filipino people is extensive and bigger than the Philippine social service, Pacquiao can not say NO. That is why he always have no money. Instead giving the money to tax which will only lost to corruption processes, why not leave it to Manny to provide aid to more Filipinos in need.

To Deles and Ferrer, You are negotiators representing Filipinos. Supposedly, you are not to take sides, avoid subjectivity in favor of objectivity. Why did you make a statement stating blame and accountablity on the SAF when you are merely a negotiator not law and order officials? I feel so disgusted by your demeanor on how you represented yourselves as negotiators... you fell for the underdog syndrome. Your liberal views caused the Philippine side to receive a terrible deal.

Why even consider passing BBL with its many flaws and unconstitutional provisions? Why have BBL at all? We need to vote out these idiotic and treasonous politicians. Ferrer herself admitted that BBL will not guarantee peace in Mindanao. We will always be at war as long as these armed Muslim terror groups are around. No armed groups=peace. Armed groups=war. Let's face it, war is upon us whether we like it or not. Forget China for now, Malaysia and their armed Filipino Muslim lackeys are the immediate threats to Philippine sovereignty.

The speech of Israel PM Netanyahu about the danger of signing a treaty with Iran could very well be applied to the Moro situation in the PHL. Signing a Treaty with a murderous & fascistic country like Iran will not stop their Nuclear Development. ON the contrary it would hasten it. In the same breadth signing the BBL would give the Moros encouragement to launched more aggressive attacks against the PHL govt. After they are done laughing at the naiveté & weakness of the PHL officials of course.

We can never say the truth how honest and sincere Moro Islamic Liberation Front is because of a discovered Bomb factory. It was tolerated for decades and not reported to our government?. No wonder why the enemies fight continuously. If the Moro Islamic Liberation Front really wanted peace, they should have reported the hidden bomb factory ..if they're really concerned for that peace agreement.

To Deles and Ferrer, let me ask the two of you some basic questions. Because going back to the basics certainly provides an indication if there is a direction, and as to where this direction headed to. My questions are, Are the Moro's in Mindanao willing to call and identify themselves as Filipinos for the sake of peace? Are they willing to consider Mindanao as part of the Philippines? Are they willing to assure the local and international public of peace albeit without intention to overthrow or grab power from the government. Are they willing to respect without forms of harassment, other forms of religion outside of Islam as their equal? I believe these are basic questions that were never addressed at all at the cost of 70 billion pesos....

If these Two Negotiators are not in sympathy with the Moros then they must be disastrously incompetent. How can they sit there and "negotiate" and not only gain NOTHING for the govt. but give ammunition to the Moros as well. In other words if they would negotiate like this why should there be any need of them. Just give the Moros what they want.

Thank you Isabelle for the voice of reason amidst the hysteria for blood letting and breast thumping by "patriotic" Filipinos!! Thanks to Deles and Ferrer for forging on ahead searching for peace instead of all out war against fellow Filipinos! Of course, there are many in this forum that do not consider the Moros apparently as not Filipinos!

To my fellow Filipinos, behold these two liberal individuals, Deles and Ferrer who played a major role in the leading the Philippines to the road of Israel's woe's and uncertainty. We are now following the lead of Israel in the slow but sure, disintegration of their lands in favor of a people who don't even recognize their existence.

If among the results of the much ballyhooed ARMM were the despicable massacre of the 44 soldiers & the obvious duplicity of the Moros what guarantee is there that BBL would change anything? On the contrary BBL would give the Moros more reason to assume that they could easily lead the PHL govt. by the nose. The politicians in Congress are afraid of the "alternative of war" because it might interfere with their private agenda. The Plunder of govt. money.

We are making unfair comments about the roles played by the government panel on the BBL (Deles and Ferrer). We have to bear in mind that this BBL is but a framework deal- a road map to the elusive peace in Mindanao; hence the title Basic Bangsanmoro Law. BBL will replace the old ARMM. Congress has to deliberate on it, approve it and submit it to the people for a plebiscite. Why are we making unfair and senseless accusations? What is the big deal? If Congress is unhappy, walk away! It is as simple as that. What's the rush if I may ask?

We are condemning our own negotiating panel without even bothering to read the content of the Bangsanmoro Basic Law that Congress has yet to deliberate and the citizens to vote on it through a plebiscite before it becomes a law. We are accusing these two women of treason for having sold out this country to Moro Islamic Liberation Front. We have forgotten that BBL will replace ARMM. This law was supposed to meet the needs and aspirations of Muslims in Mindanao in exchange for peace. What makes this BBL more toxic than ARMM?

There could be some truth to Cayetano's charge that Malacanang was aware that Marwan was being " coddled" by Moro Islamic Liberation Front but I will never accept the charge that Deles and Ferrer were negotiating in bad faith favoring Moro Islamic Liberation Front's interest more than the government. Looking at the draft BBL, Moro Islamic Liberation Front is a government being created within an existing government with its own Sharia law, police force and even its own COA. The claim of critics that creating this new government comes at a cost of 75 billion pesos is false. It is 17 not 75 billion.

Someone said - " I am wondering how these 2 (especially Ferrer, who looks very scholarly with her eyeglasses) were selected by PNoy to be the main peace negotiators. " Perhaps because he saw in them their level-headedness and clear thinking not easily muddled by knee jerk emotional outburst and typical Filipino melodrama! I sure hate to see Philippines being a battleground and a place for spawning radicalized moro youths!!

Maraming Tao ang mahirap i-please. Kahit anong gawing mabuti ng isang tao, no way pa rin. Palaging sumasalungat. Pero sa isang banda mapapansin pa rin ang mapanira, makitid at kulang sa tamang katwiran. Malimit may isang pagkakamali na itatanim nila hanggang sa kanilang hukay dahil walang katwiran ang tama sa kanya. Minsan naman nadadala ng mga sulsul o suhol ng mga anay ng lipunan. At may mga tao namang nagtitiaga para mapabuti ang lahat, malimit sila pa masama. Taong tumutulong, sila pa ang sisiraan. GANYAN ang kulang sa kabutihan... mga hypokritong nabubuhay sa panlabas na kaanyuan na may magarang panlabas pero sa kalooban ay puno ng basura.

Obviously in reference to my previous statement, someone from Toronto said, "the three star in the flag doesn't prove that the Moros accepted to be included as part of the Philippines." My reaction: But did they resist or protest it at all before? No. So your argument doesn't matter because they were not even a group with a distinct identity with rightful claim of property. The common thing among them is their religion. Now, you have to realize there are already Christian Malay who live in the south at that time too.

Our government should be wise for that BBL. There's a saying..."Matalino man ang matsing napaglalalangan din". The Moro Islamic Liberation Front wants peace in Mindanao... not to aim of owning any territories?. If that's what they're fighting for, they should abide all the laws of our government... to have one COA etc. If they're demanding something, that would be the start till they get all... and create their own govt. Think...if all the enemies are dead, the good ones remain... no need to have any agreement. We're all one with the same gov't, constitution...etc. The AFP should destroy all the houses and bldgs where they think the group meets. Those civilians should be given houses out of the areas where enemies stays to make it easy to kill them...by bombings.

By doing it, there'll be no places to hide. Areas clear from terrorists!! i think there's no solution except to catch those enemies and be very strict to the places where the terrorists could enter our boundaries.

Re: Sen. Jose Jinggoy Estrada. The suspended Senator can't stop the AMLC (Ani Money Laundering Council) report. He claims confidentiality of Bank Deposits..There is always an exception to every rule. The bank confidentiality rule can never be used to protect fraud or to hide crime. If you did not steal money why are you afraid of the evidence. Because it is true that he cashed his PDAF money which was intended by the law to be spent on projects but Jinggoy instead used it to buy a 200,000,000 Peso mansion at Wack Wack Subdivision..

No matter how much you slice and dice it, Pnoy is complicit in this bungled operation that led to the unnecessary lost of lives. Napenas could not be acting alone without getting marching orders from a superior. Purisima was the unseen hand. He was coordinating the events on the ground with his boss Pnoy. The president was in the loop and he has to apologize. It is time playing dummy! But this is one president who is unapologetic. He never apologized to HK tourists who died in Luneta hostage taking.

Tumataas ang bayaran sa kuryente dahil marami ang gumagamit na walang tipid lalo na ang mga mandaraya. Todo-todo gumamit palibhasa hindi umaandar kuntador at may mga illegal na connection. Problema ni Petilla dahil sila ang binabatikos kapag laging brown-out at may pagtaas na bayaran. Ano bang gagawin, todo gamit sa bahay ng mga computer/laptop, tv, radio etc. . Syempre maghapong teleserye at ang kabataan, ilang oras sa Computer kaya normal na mangyari na magkaroon ng kakulangan sa kuryente.

Pnoy must show to his enemy relatives that despite their criticisms he's still the powerful president. He can bring Binay to court and that no super rich and powerful clan can bring him down and could bring all the corrupt officials to jail. Many were against Pnoy this time esp. those thieves because of being strict with his policy to catch all evils roaming around our country. But, more agrees to his kind of governance to be continued. People of the Philippines be wise... don't allow corrupts to be in power. Vote for Pnoy's bet!!.

Alam ng marami, inggit lang daw sa mga Aquino si Peping C. Imagine nga naman ina at pamangkin naging presidente. Si Kris sikat pa. Si Peping ay matanda na ay hindi pa tumayong kagalang-galang. Ayan, napipintasan lang sya sa hitsura at ugali. Dapat silang magkakamag-anak ang nagdadamayan pero sila pa ang hindi magkasundo. Mas sikat kasi ang mga Aquino kaya binabato. Kawawa kung tutuusin sila Kris kasi ulila na sila tapos kinakalaban pa sila ng kanilang tunay na uncle. Ang sama ng nangyayari. Ng dahil siguro sa pride, power at envy nagkaroon ng hatred. Gosh.. walang peace anywhere!

With Negotiators Like These on Our Team, Who Needs an Opposing Side?

The 44 members of the Philippine National Police-Special Action Force (SAF) who were brutally killed in Mamasapano, Maguindanao on January 25, 2015 are heroes twice over: first, they paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving their country; second, they exposed for all to see, the dangers the country will face if the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) is passed.

No More Bangsamoro, Period!

With each passing day, it is becoming increasingly clear that the idea of a Bangsamoro is a bad idea. Just as the Memorandum of Agreement on Ancestral Domain (MOA-AD) spearheaded by former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was a bad idea (and declared unconstitutional in 2008 by the Supreme Court). Just as the failed Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) during the 1990s was a bad idea. Published 2/8/2015
After the Mamasapano Massacre, Plans for a Bangsamoro Must Be Scrapped

What happened in Mamasapano, Maguindanao on January 25 is a "game changer"—make no mistake about it. Reality as we saw it before this event is not the reality we see now...everything is different; everything has "changed. When the Philippine National Police's (PNP) elite team known as the Special Action Force or SAF set out to arrest Zulkifli bin Hir alias Marwan, it had actionable intelligence that the Malaysian fugitive was hiding in the town of Mamasapano. Marwan, an expert bomb maker, is a core member of the terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah. Published 1/31/2015

After the Pope's Visit: What We Filipinos Now Must Do

We put on a good show for Pope Francis. He loved it; we loved it; the world loved it. Now the long and painful task of bringing about the changes the pope asked for begins. Start with the Philippine Catholic Church. It should refocus its efforts towards the poor. As we wrote in previous editorials, many priests and bishops see themselves as members of the rich and privileged class. They feel more at home in country clubs and dining in expensive restaurants, than they do helping the poor who live in the squatter communities that dot most cities in the Philippines.

Pope Francis Admonishes Pinoys to End Scandalous Inequalities

We had a feeling this was coming. In his first major speech in the Philippines, Pope Francis called for an end to 'scandalous inequalities' in the country. And what better example of a scandalous inequality is there than that a preposterously ridiculous wedding of Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera which was officiated by 8 bishops and 7 priests. In addition, this crass wedding featured a 12-foot high wedding cake, a 2-million-peso wedding gown with an exaggeratedly long train that seemed to go on forever...you get the picture.
