Living with apparent Incompetencies

 Holes in the Screening Process?

Like it or not,  PNoy and his men will be in the news for 6 years.  Perhaps on a minute by minute basis. Because everyone is keeping an eye. Friends and family want PNoy  to succeed. Along with the people who voted for him, they want President Noy to perpetuate his parent's legacy -  Service to the People.

The new converts, sincerely moved  by his initial actions are also keeping tab. Many want him to do well.

By the same token, his enemies too are following the President's every move. Critics observe.  His cabinet men's every word  scrutinized. Actions constantly checked out.  

Majority of the Filipinos are full of expectations  for change. Under his command, people look forward to good governance. A corrupt free administration will  be a way of life, hopefully. The underprivileged are counting on PNoy. Gone will be the  grinding days of  daily  survival.  Asia's basket case image will finally be discarded.

But what is this? In the last two days, hugging the news are cases being filed against his appointees like  Secretary Singson  and MMDA Chairman Tolentino.  Plunder from shady deals, land grabbing and other corrupt practices are alleged.  If these are true, was there a failure in the screening process of his men? The President  himself admitted, it was a very difficult process. He did not know everyone who was recommended. So where there holes somewhere?

The men accused say these are all tactics of harrasment . Politics. 

I am praying hard,  they are just that.

God help our country.

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
The Reproductive Health Bill has been approved.
