  1. "It", of course. "It" being corruption. And "enough" would be an amount of "it" to stimulate actual reform.
  2. " MANILA, Philippines—President Rodrigo Duterte’s economic managers are cold to the proposal to extend quarantine restrictions in Metro Manila and other areas deemed at high risk to COVID-19 until yearend, as doing so would keep hunger and joblessness high. Instead, Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III and Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Karl Kendrick Chua on Monday (July 12) sought to continue managing pandemic risks while speeding up mass vaccination to protect not only lives but also livelihoods from the threat posed by more contagious virus variants which forced recent lockdow
  3. I can't imagine the current nonsense continuing into the next Christmas season. I'm not often right but I've almost never been wrong. Here's hoping....
  4. Best to not encourage illegal acts. IIRC foreigners can't own pellet guns. You may see your post sent to the corn field. Get a Wrist Rocket slingshot. https://duckduckgo.com/?q=wrist+rocket+slingshot&t=newext&atb=v254-1&ia=web
  5. On another board I am a member of, removing posts is called "sending them to the corn field" (a reference to the movie Children of the Corn", or simply "cornfielding" them. The mods here are quicker to resort to it than I would like, but I don't own this board. That other board has a section called "The BBQ Pit" which has very few rules. Terrifying degenerates mix freely with the general public. Trolls get skinned alive. Something like that is needed here.
  6. You don't have a good grip on the definition of "slave". Coming soon: Explorer compares mask wearers to victims of the Holocaust.
  7. Filipinas can be extraordinarily gullible (trusting). In the early years of our marriage I would settle disputes by flipping a coin, saying "heads I win, tails you lose." Eventually I took pity on her and explained that the victim of this scam could never win. You should try it on your Filipinas.
  8. I never said anything to dispute the above statement. It's abundantly clear that the Philippines will never come close to equaling first-world standards when it comes to infrastructure. It's also clear that having too many expats in the Philippines would ruin the place for me- prices would increase to an unacceptable level. Just trying to open the eyes of folks thinking of limiting my financial elbow room, so to speak.
  9. They do it with redundant capabilities. When one power source fails, power is rerouted from elsewhere to replace it. When one transmission line fails, power is re-routed through another path.
  10. In the Philippines "it has to be done." In other countries not nearly so much. In Wyoming USA we are not without electricity more than a few hours each year. In Japan the average consumer is without electricity an average of 5 minutes per year.
  11. The wife made me delete them. Take my word for it that it was really bad. So bad that you wouldn't have believed it to be possible.
  12. Grabbed a half-bag of corn chips from the cupboard one night. Was on my 2nd mouthful before realizing ants had gotten into the package. Soon my lips were swollen to a truly comical extent and I was getting worried about my trachea swelling shut. That would have been tragic since I was alone in the house at the time. Fortunately that didn't happen and my lips were back to normal in 20 hours or thereabout.
