Cry babies, prima donnas in the PNPBy Ramon Tulfo
Philippine Daily Inquirer
This is the best time to give away money, clothes and shoes you no longer wear, utensils you no longer use, and old but still usable things in your attic or basement.
When you share your money and valuable items with calamity victims, get ready to receive a flood of replacements soon.
Nature hates a vacuum. It always fills up spaces left empty by your generosity.
The money you give up because of your generosity will be replaced with more money.
Same with things you give away to the needy.
That is the law of the universe.

Haven’t you noticed why billionaires like Lucio Tan, Henry Sy, Manny Pangilinan, the Ayala family, Danding Cojuangco and Ramon Ang get richer every day with little effort?
Of course, they already have the money.
But as they say, money attracts more money.
Another reason why money keeps coming to them is their generosity.
They give away huge sums to charity and calamity victims.
They emit vibrations of abundance and the universe, in response, gives them more.
In contrast, the poor get poorer because they always complain about what they lack.
And the universe, which is neutral, gives the poor more reason to complain about.

Six cops in Iloilo province have sued their superior, Senior Inspector Yolando Yago, who allegedly forced them to jump into a fishpond and to stay there for nine hours as a form of punishment.
The six complainants—Police Officers 1 Madelyn Villegas, Maritess de Gomez, Rowena Bautista, Janice Patricio, Ronald de Tomas and J-Mar Sales—belong to the 1st Maneuver Platoon of the Iloilo Police Public Safety Company.
They were punished for leaving their posts without getting any replacement.
As a result of the complaint, Yago has been relieved.
The complainants are all cry babies.
They shouldn’t have joined the uniformed services, but should have joined the movie industry where tardiness on the set is even considered a matter of privilege.
(But do they have pretty or handsome faces? And since obviously they don’t, they have no reason to be prima donnas)
In the military, leaving a post without being asking permission to do so is considered a very serious offense.
During wartime, the penalty for such an offense is facing a firing squad.
As a kid, I saw how my dad, then Lt. Ramon Tulfo, punch and kick soldiers he caught sleeping at the guardhouse in Indanan, Sulu province in the 1950s.
That was the old Philippine Constabulary, the forerunner of the Philippine National Police.
The reason the PNP as we know it today is lacking in discipline is because many cry babies and prima donnas have joined the force.
