Running a country

"Art Not Crime"

I used to think that corruption and criminality in the Philippines were caused by poverty. But recent events tell me this isn’t true. It is one thing to see people turn into drug addicts, prostitutes, thieves and murderers because of hunger and poverty, but what excuse do these rich, educated people have that could possibly explain their bizarre behavior? And o think I was always so relieved when petty snatchers got caught and locked away in jail because I never fully realized that the big time thieves were out there, making the laws and running a country. Can it get any worse than this?

I have never seen so many criminals roaming around unfettered and looking smug until now. These criminals wear suits and barongs, strut around with the confidence of the rich and famous, inspire fear and awe from the very citizens who voted them to power, bear titles like “Honorable,”  “Senator,”  “Justice,” “General,” and worse, “President.” Ironically, these lawless individuals practice law, make our laws, enforce the law. And we wonder why our policemen act the way they do! These are their leaders, and the leaders of this nation ” Robin Hoodlum and his band of money men. Their motto? “Rob the poor, moderate the greed of the rich.”

When a deaf child says: “For all of you, I am deaf but for me, all of you are dumb…” Moral: Life differs in each perspective.  Live the way you want to. Now for good economy countries need big investors, medium and small, apparently many people bypass the Philippines due to their policy of 40% ownership to foreigners and 60% national. Medium and small investors can’t run like this and so therefore don’t contemplate the Philippines. The US Dollar Exchange Rate Was 52 when I arrived here in the Philippines.
