  1. Dole regulates all employment by foreign nationals and their website makes it clear on who or who cannot work depending on what visa they are on. http://www.ble.dole.gov.ph/index.php/web-pages/118-alien-employment-permit
  2. If they would enforce the laws on the books they wouldn't need this sticker program. Here in Dumaguete its common to see motorcycles with no plate. Yet law enforcement seems to be blind when it comes to enforcing that law. I really don't think a sticker will help in anyway. Whoever is doing these drive-by assassinations are not going to be part of the sticker program and they all seem to have one thing in common, no plate.
  3. The program is voluntary not mandatory. I have already seen one with the sticker on it here in Dumaguete. It didn't even have mirrors on it. I'm not going to waste my time getting a sticker. http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/1016574/pnp-launches-clean-rider-campaign-to-fight-crime
  4. Dave, I'm currently going through this process for my brother. First you need to get a Medical Clearance from your doctor and then have a lawyer do an affidavit based on the medical clearance. This has to be done no earlier than one month before your visa expires. Manila is the approving office. I have to turn my brother's paperwork in next month. Have no idea on what cost will be until Manila approves the extension. And this needs to be done every two months.
  5. Same happened to me last week. Someone in the States tried to get into my account.
  6. Maybe he will hang himself. There is no protective custody in Philippines Prison so he better have alot of money.

    China Fils USA

    The Mutual Defense Treaty is still in effect. The US and it's allies would all show up if China got crazy. If China took over the Philippines they could control all the shipping lanes and there is no way the world would allow that. As for those man-made islands, they would be easily destroyed by B-1s, B-2s and B-52s. http://www.officialgazette.gov.ph/1951/08/30/mutual-defense-treaty-between-the-republic-of-the-philippines-and-the-united-states-of-america-august-30-1951/
  10. There has been three arrests of pedophiles in the last week. A German, Russian and American. Hope they all rot in a Philippines prison. http://philippineslifestyle.com/russian-molesting-nine-year-old-girl/ http://philippineslifestyle.com/american-arrested-airport-17-year-old/ http://philippineslifestyle.com/german-tourist-teenage-boys-sex-cebu/
  11. This is a perfect example when you should just walk away from a situation. SILAY, Negros Occidental - An American national was shot dead by a fellow customer and his 18-year-old nephew at a restobar here on Tuesday night. The 57-year-old victim, Eric Hendrickson, was having a drink when the suspects asked him for a bottle of beer. Hendrickson refused the request, prompting the suspects to insult him in the local dialect, which the US national understood. In the ensuing altercation, the elder suspect shot the victim several times on his head, causing his immediate death. The suspects fled from the crime scene but were eventually cornered by cops. Hendrickson, a resident of Iowa, visited Silay to work on the travel papers of his child, whom he planned to bring to the US. http://news.abs-cbn.com/news/05/16/18/american-shot-dead-in-negros-bar-fight
