The first thing I hope, is that the funds will not fall on the wrong pockets..

Just asking, would public condominiums be a substitute for bungalow houses in terms of relocation?
It takes much less space and much more people.
I can't help to wonder why can't this be used as an alternative.
I mean, even our ASEAN neighbors had engaged to this kind of a solution.
No wonder their skyline's so good.

could be. just like in Brazil...

I'm in favor of substituting low cost vertical developments to bungalow houses... wag lang magmukhang napabayaang tenement..

The Squatting Problem

^This video is plain propaganda. He is insinuating that all the problems in the Philippines started in 1986. He totally omitted the misdeeds of the past administrations - from Quezon to Marcos.

I think the Pnoy housing plan is a good start, in city house relocation is the way to go. Relocating people to far flung areas will not work. Also, in city house relocation would benefit the local politicians as they would not lose any votes; in fact they would gain votes. This is a win-win scenario for everyone. But the authorities should make sure that other people won't squat in the vacated areas.

I was waiting for some other reaction but ako lang yata natatawa dito.
From a portion of my favorite economic journalist:
Quote:
The Complete Perversion of the Law
But, unfortunately, law by no means confines itself to its proper functions. And when it has exceeded its proper functions, it has not done so merely in some inconsequential and debatable matters. The law has gone further than this; it has acted in direct opposition to its own purpose. The law has been used to destroy its own objective: It has been applied to annihilating the justice that it was supposed to maintain; to limiting and destroying rights which its real purpose was to respect. The law has placed the collective force at the disposal of the unscrupulous who wish, without risk, to exploit the person, liberty, and property of others. It has converted plunder into a right, in order to protect plunder. And it has converted lawful defense into a crime, in order to punish lawful defense.
How has this perversion of the law been accomplished? And what have been the results?
The law has been perverted by the influence of two entirely different causes: stupid greed and false philanthropy. Let us speak of the first.

Shanty town turned into development town!

What are the shanty towns in Metro Manila which were turned for development purposes? Are there such?

I was surprised that these illegal settlers can afford to have AC in their houses, not to mention the theatre system, LCD TV etc...

My suggestion, the government should put up a government housing. It's a lucrative business to increase our tax base. When I was in Makati, I was paying 6,000 pesos monthly for a studio type apartment in one of the cluster houses owned by Binays. I'm pretty sure these illegal settlers can pay atleast 5,000 amortization for government funded housing.

Provided that the beneficiary must have a stable sources of income at nagbabayad ng income tax, kayang kaya nila ito. What's the use of PAG IBIG di ba?

Correction the problem start from Aguinaldo...remeber ipinapatay ni Aguinaldo si Bonifacio dahil sa di matanggap ni Bonifacio ang resulta ng halalan dahil dinaya cya ni Aguinaldo! Immagine Fist Phil. election may dayaan na! nagpatayan pa kapwa bayani! (kuno) How can they be heroes kung sila sila nag papatayan? Sabi ni Aguilado Bonifacio is a sour looser sabi naman ni Bonifacio Aguilaldo is a cheater! But sad to say this part of history is seldom discussed in schools! coverup?

..those are not enough reasons why you should not to claim "proud to be Pinoy"...being a Proud Pinoy, though you've seen these negative aspects, still have your love for this nation and determined to make a change..

...IMO, though I'm not purely Filipino, what was presented in the video was true...but poverty exists since the time man had fallen to sin in his rebellion against the God of love...what was shown in the video does not only exist exclusively in the Philippines...even the more bitter than it can also be found in the other countries, even too to the wealthiest nation...the evil does not found only in the government, but to the whole nation...and if Rizal was still alive, witnessing this present face of the nation he absolutely loved, I'm sure he would be disappointed..proof? look at the election.. hundred years ago when Rizal wrote his first poem "To the Filipino Youth"...but look at the elections, even at the SK level, youth now are also engaged in vote-buying..the colonial mentality in the Spanish time is still existing today...government officials would persecute anyone who speak the truth against them...that same spirit began in the Spanish was the reason why the Great Malayan Rizal was executed...your hero is undeniably impressive if we think about his writings for his country and for his people's enemies...anything that he wrote really reflects the present...Jesus Christ had seen the Philippines, a nation that bears His name in Asia, agonizing from the immoral oppression...even the Church had done nothing constructive...Christ would take revenge against the Satan-moved oppressive power...I love the Philippines because of her history, especially how her heroes fight for independence because they want their children to enjoy the true freedom...there is no reason why you would decline to be proud pinoy i think...there is still hope...you will now take the role of your heroes they took in the past...you are the today's Rizals...go for it...God is with you...your enemies are not humans, but rather the evil spirits behind that crafts the oppression and immoralities...put in the heart first that you are really "Pinoy" and you really love the Philippines...fight!!..whether we are successful or not, I'm proud of to be Pinoy...
