    PurpleDaisy13: You know what, I would not make a hasty judgment on any poster here like Neverwint3r. If I do not know the personal circumstances of a poster here, it is risky to make conclusions about the person. You see, posters here could be saying something opposite their circumstances. For example, I do not know if you personally know Neverwint3r so that you can conclude that he has no money. For all you know, he or she has more money than you and I put together.  In other words, I am not 100% sure if what you state here is true, just as you are not 100% that what I state here is the truth. I am not sure if you agree, but it does not matter. That is the reality of this internet stuff.

    Personally, I take with a grain of salt whatever I read in these discussions. I am just playing it safely. With the advent of the internet, anyone has access to myriads of information and can discuss with certain degree of authority a lot of subjects otherwise not possible without the internet. I am sure you are fully aware of this.

    Believe or not.

    i agree with you…as it is also acceptable to be 99% sure of what i say is true, and i can be 99% sure of what you state is true.

    re: ” I do not know if you personally know Neverwint3r so that you can conclude that he has no money”

    it’s a figure of speech mangtom. it’s not literal just as your statement “you are right on the money” wasn’t either.

    however, what is 99% clear is that Neverwint3r expects to take and take from the country i pay annual taxes for and has never considered what he intends to give and give in return other than cheap talk and praises…and a handful of pokpok service agents he wants to exploit in exchange for a stack of dollars to buy crates of san miguel beer for himself and his barkada.

    that’s his master plan for an economic recovery to help the republic of the phils….pathetic.

    Philippines is a corrupt shiiittt hjole that is propped up with bribes from china and the U.S. Ignorance and distrust is the motivation fueling the economy. For a country like the Philippines to be a “Christian” nation is bull. There is not a square foot of the Philippines that doesn’t have an armed guard on it to keep the “honest” Philippine citizen from stealing anything that isn’t bolted or cemented to the earth.
