sweetgiftsphilippines, perhaps that is mostly true but in our judicial system, the accused are presumed innocent until proven otherwise.

Maja, no one has even proven that PGMA used public funds. So what is everybody bitchin about? And you mean to tell me that public officials have no right to a private life? No wonder the elected officials that the Philippines have been getting are a bunch of "cute" personalities, loudmouths, showoffs, grandstanding populists. We deserve what we get because we expect the wrong things from them. People like to blame the president for everything nowadays. You guys forget that there are Senators, Congressmen, Mayors, Governors, Councilors, Baranggay Council, Government officials from different political parties, and other people of authority to blame besides the president. They all have responsibilities. They all have their sworn-in duties. But we love to target PGMA! I'm so sick of it!

Public scrutiny is one thing but to jump to conclusion that everything that PGMA does is not on the up and up is ridiculous. It is just so tragic that your view of the president is mostly negative and what you get told by the news media, the Church and the Opposition. You guys must really believe in wacky conspiracies. Has anyone read the article that explained what really happened? Did anyone ask the person who foot the bill? One guy here is even blaming or making Gloria feel guilty for having a very nice dinner in which she was invited before she attended Cory's funeral. Are you guys, nuts? In the first place, PGMA is not even a relative of Cory.

Public officials have private lives too, in case you missed that! And she didn't foot the bill. I have no problem with such a huge dinner bill if it came out of her pocket. Why should we? How many of you have celphones worth 6 to 8 months of your salaries?

Just because she eats at a posh place does not mean she is corrupt. Just because her personal wealth doubled does not mean it's ill-gotten. Only in the Philippines will you get that conclusion. We are so conditioned to doing that, thanks to the the news media and the Opposition. Have you ever looked at how rich the individual families of the First Gent's and the President's? Guess whose family gave the land where the University of the Philippines was built on? Guess whose family gave a bit of land where parts of the University of Santo Tomas sits on now? Guess who used to own ALMOST ALL OF QUEZON CITY? Yeah...that rich! Have you ever been to California and see the buildings owned by the First Family? Yeah, tall and big...and they all got all that wealth even before PGMA became president. Of course it is just easy to jump to stupid conclusions. That's what they all want you to see. Do you really think they need the money with all the millions, if not billions of pesos they already own? How much is ZTE? Do you really think they would bother with, what $50 MILLION? LOL! The economic downturn that you keep beating like the dead horse would have been worse. I have a few words for you, girlz: NO RECESSION! Just last month our inflation rate is the lowest it has ever been in 22 years AT 0.2%...let me repeat, at zero point two percent! How can that be if there is an economic downturn in the Philippines. Exports are on the uptrend. Unemployment is on the downturn, including poverty, and that's according to the CIA Fact Book, not some leftist group like SWS. LOL! The problem we have is our exploding population. And yet the Church is fighting the passage of the reproduction bill. How much is the Church fighting poverty? Do they have free schools in the likes of Ateneo or La Salle for the poor even? Do they operate soup kitchens for the poor and homeless? If they have to attack the govt they should put their money where their mouth is. Otherwise, it is all hot air.
