» » FILIPINO ECONOMY AT THE MERCY OF PREDATORY POLITICIANS

The PDI’s Second Front Page today has got me excited. It reads: “RP Corruption Worst in East Asia”. Of course the news was upsetting but it was no news at all to millions of Filipinos, it’s common knowledge. What got me excited was upon reading the line that says the Philippines is at the “bottom of East Asia’s ten largest economies”. I say that is news. Yes, this labor exporting country is among the region’s ten largest economies. It is a monumental triumph of the Filipino and one achieved in spite of the burden posed by a chronically corrupt and inept government.
Just imagine what economic dreams may come when the Filipino people finally rid their government of crocodiles masquerading as politicians. I still look forward to a day when the people shall drive all the crocodiles off from Malacanang Palace and down back to Pasig River where they belong. It has been their home anyway prior to the sacking of Manila by the conquistadores.
