    pero marami pang mga ganyan ang dadating sa Pinas in the coming years; source of income yan ng mga leaders natin at ng mga pulis natin

    tingnan ninyo kung kaano na kalapit (lok at the map) ang Scarborough Shoal sa Pilipinas…..nakaktakot.

    diyan magsisimula ang smuggling nila ng droga sa Pilipinas. Just look how close it is !
    Inangkin na ng Tsina yan in case we do not know yet !

    Harsher punishment for foreign nationals violating PH laws.

    • jacel_itim_na_puso

      why protect PH nationals violating foreign laws but punish foreign nationals violating PH laws? sooo unfair! unfair! unfair!

      • Mazza02

        Because most of those Philippine nationals that violated laws abroad did so under duress like the kidnapped drug mules. However some people with fake Philippine citizenship don’t deserved to be helped such as the illegal chinese TNT in Europe and US pretending to be Filipino.

    Ibitay doon sa Kalayaan Group of Islands. Kapag nakawala pa yan, ang mga pulis ang bitayin.

  • jacel_itim_na_puso

    PNOY must protect the drug dealers in filipino land

    • Mazza02

      That is what you say because you are chinese.

  • WindTalker
