    I can’t understand why despite the milions and millions of cash and relief good donations, the typhoon victims are suffering from hunger due to absence of food, lack or absence of medicine and deplorable living condition. Indonesia donated $1 million, other countries also donated money, local donors did the same and many gave goods. But where are these? Sec. Stinky Soliman showed her stark face there but brought no enough food or medicine. P21 billion CCT funds ran out? Next year will be  P45 billion for the corruption-friendly CCT!

    I remember my aunt recall the Baguio City disaster brought by a strong earthquake. They turn off the TV everytime there were news reports because they reported the corned beef, meat loaf, blankets and other foreign donations only to receive everyday sardines and the blankets turned into the thin China-made ones from Divisoria.
