  1. Here is what the "officials" dont say,,,,,,,,out of the 350, how many were hospitalized, how many died and how many just had runny noses? Unless I am completely wrong,,,,(which happens often, just ask my wife) the primary purpose of the jab is to keep you out of intensive care and alive,,,not to keep you completely virus free. In addition, i will be willing to bet a case of beer that once those 350 got the jab they started slacking off in there safety protocols.

  2. Dave, to take it a step further, they created the virus to create a market for the vaccine.... Just so you know, I don't believe the conspiracy theories either, but just pointing out the logic.

  3. Thanks for all of the suggestions/comments, and to graham59 for the nice pic. Plans change, but I don't plan on buying right now, just renting. Perhaps a condo or a townhouse. I expect with more modern cities, especially if there are any nice beaches nearby, will be more expensive. Thankfully with social security and my military retirement, I have a steady monthly income which will be enough for most places. Whenever travel resumes, I plan to visit some of the most recommended to spend a few days or week checking out the area.

  4. An obviously non-provable statement. Some people take care of themselves physically and accept the risks of the big scary planet, like they've been doing their entire adult life. And others voluntarily welcome something into their blood that at best, only reduces symptoms, or worse, may kill them. Not a difficult decision, though I support the sentiment that everyone else should take their chances with a vaccine...

  5. They used to do that but that is what the customs corrupt count on. They allow the cars in, have an auction and arrange who will get the cars at a good price then pocket the profits. The only way to beat that is to crush the source of the corrupt profits.

  6. It has, there's now 4 big Gaisano malls and one Super Metro spread around the island. The downside is they have the same crap as every other mall, not much imported goods like Ayala or Seaside. If OP's renting a condo, Mactan Newtown is the developed zone on the island, many condos, a new food court, a new supermarket, even a private school.

  8. Philippine drivers seem to have trouble maintaining their lane when cornering. I can see a bunch of rail cars ending up in the bay at that one turn.

  9. I am with @scott h, tired of being in lockdown and having little or no social life. Had a stroke in 2017 and now have to take blood thinning meds. Astra vaccine June 3rd, will get the second Aug 3rd. The chances of death from vaccine induced blood clots, especially among men, is far lower than the chances of catching and dying from covid.

  10. More idiocy. There are people here in need of money and government services...vaccines even. Please start using your intelligence, government.

  11. Sorry, not happening. I can't have anything that increases blood clots. You will just have to stay locked down for the next 30 years or so.

  12. I think Yamaha makes a variant of that type of vehicle too. I'm going to have to +1 on the buy a car suggestion. Suzuki sells new cars at what I think is a good value for what you get.

  14. Not stolen. This is a Duterte thing. When they first started, I remembered reading something about how he thought this way would avoid corruption being involved if they tried to sell them. That may be true, but it would be easy to have a plan to sell them on the condition they are legally exported to another country by the buyer. The original illegal import would still feel the same pain financially and sure they would be heavily fined. How many vaccines could that money buy? How many people could it feed?

  15. i have no doubt but what you are right. It would be nice if, in fact they are stolen, that they would contact the owner and give them the option to pay to have them shipped back home.

  16. Softail, could it be those vehicles were stolen from another country? Once they were intercepted by customs perhaps Interpol was informed and they requested they be destroyed? Just a wild guess on my part? On the other hand it is Philippines.....

  17. Just a possible adjunct to this discussion regarding the "World Bank." Perhaps take a look at the book called, "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man," by John Perkins... This might give you some insight regarding how the major "powers that be," look at and manage the world's populations? Just a thought to consider...

  19. I can't help but wonder if this all sinovac, a bad batch, or it is not effective against the "delta" strain of covid? In any case I expect a great many people will now refuse it going forward, especially given the effectiveness was only 51% to begin with. https://www.forbes.com/sites/roberthart/2021/06/17/chinas-sinovac-vaccine-under-scrutiny-as-covid-soars-in-highly-vaccinated-countries/?sh=1abc41001444 TOPLINE Concerns over the effectiveness of China’s Sinovac vaccine continue to grow—Indonesia reported hundreds of outbreaks among medical professionals who took the vaccine and har
