    Muy bueno….excellente!

    Ganyan din dapat dito sa bayan….yong mga nakikialam sa gobierno na hindi dapat ay pinapa-alis at pinapalis sa bayan!

      Always tricky to take an absolutist position. Kung ung pakikialam ay para mabulgar ang mga di tamang ginagawa ng mga tao sa gobyerno, as a citizen, I don’t mind at all. If it’s the other way around, then that would certainly merit a thorough examination.

      • UrHONOR

        THE highest and absolute GOOD for the people must always prevail in any undertaking. KUNG ang pakikialam ng di dapat nakikialam ay sabagal o makakasagabal sa ginagawa ng mga nakaka-alam at dapat na nakikialam, wala ng ibang dapat na gawin kundi ang tanggalin ang hindi nararapat sa lahat at kahit na anong paraan upang hindi malagay sa alanganin ang nararapat na gawin para sa kapakanan ng nakakarami.

        Salamat sa iyong pagpapalahad!

    If Bolivians don’t want to do away with their coca-farming, then let them be…take up your bags and leave.

    Don’t give help to those who do not welcome them.
