Many are asking why our law makers can’t file a bill imposing much higher tax to cigarette companies in the country. You can’t blame the people from thinking that maybe millions of money are given away to lobby the filing of this bill. Many believe that if the price of cigarettes will be raised, people will refrain or even stop smoking. Some cigarette producers in other countries already imposed sin tax to cigarette where like montecristo cigars will cost you $163 per pack and $11 almost 50 pesos per stick. I don’t think an ordinary laborer can afford to smoke in this scenario.

Spratly Dispute

It is sad that China seems really pursuing their claims about over the ownership of the Spratly Islands in south China sea and it seems like we are bullied in our own home and we have nothing to do but to cry for help. Like the latest news allegedly about the sending of China’s biggest battle ship to guard the disputed group of island. In response, the Philippines also sent their world record patrol ship. The oldest smallest world war two battle ships are in the area.

The defense department of the Philippines is always expressing the lack of budget to purchase modern equipment at least not for war but to guard our sovereignty and yet the wife and the family of those generals who areq5 allegedly involved in a multi millions of pesos in corruption are there in front of barcode scanner busy shopping using the peoples money.
