Fr. ED PANLILIO as Elected Governor of Pampanga
I'm 100% sure this income disparity is replicated in all the provinces of the Philippines . If we had more Ed Panlilio's in our government, we would be just like Singapore in a short time.

Read on...... We hope we are witnessing what will be a sustained revolution in good governance in the Province of Pampanga , under its newly elected governor, Fr. Ed Panlilio. According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer of August 26, only one month after Fr. Panlilio assumed his gubernatorial duties, the province ' s income from the quarrying of volcanic ash from Mount Pinatubo had reached P29.4 million . (Haulers pay a fee of P300 per truck of volcanic ash that they haul from the quarry.) By contrast, during his predecessor Mark Lapid ' s term as governor, the province ' s income from the same quarrying operations amount Ed to only P29 million a year . This gaping variation in official incomes from the same activity should inspire a new set of textbooks in Arithmetic, especially for the school children of Pampanga.
There is nothing like local color and local situations to cultivate comprehension in young minds.

Sample problems:

1. If Fr. Ed ' s provincial government can collect P29.4 million in 26 days (we assume no quarrying on Sundays), how much does it collect in one day?
Answer : An average of P1.130 million.

2. If Fr. Ed ' s provincial government collects an average of P1.130 million a day from quarrying operations, how much can it collect in one year of 313 days (365 days less 52 Sundays)?
Answer : P353,690,000, or P354 million.

3. If Fr. Ed ' s provincial government can collect P354 million a year, and Mark Lapid ' s provincial government collected only P29 million a year, what is the difference in their official yearly collections?

Answer : P325 million a year. 4. If Mark Lapid was governor for four years and his provincial government ' s annual collections from quarrying amounted to an average of P29 million, how much did his provincial govt. officially collect in four years?

Answer : P116 million. 5. If Fr. Ed manages to remain as provincial governor for four years, and his provincial government ' s annual collection from quarrying were to average P354 million, how much will his provincial government collect in four years?

Answer : P1.416 billion.

6. What is the difference between P1.416 billion and P116 million?
Answer : P1.3 billion.

7. Where did this P1.3 billion go?

Answer : Only God and the Lapids know. ( ' Lapids ' is in plural because Mark, as a second-generation political dynast, succeeded his own father, now Sen. Lito Lapid .
We don ' t know how much Lito ' s provincial government officially collected from quarrying operations during his watch. Should be a good investigative project for media.)

8. If Gawad Kalinga spends an average of P75,000 per low cost house, how many low-cost houses can P1.3 billion build?

Answer : 17,333 low-cost houses. 9. If the average Pampanga family were to consist of five persons (father, mother, three children), how many people would be benefited by 17,333 low-cost houses?

Answer: 86,665 persons .

End of Arithmetic lesson.

Fr. Ed is to be congratulated for setting a high benchmark for collection from quarrying operations against which his predecessors have a moral obligation to explain why their collections were so low, and against which future governors will be judged by the people of Pampanga.
Volcanic ash, by the way, is a superior building material. Many of the buildings, aqueducts &monuments of the Roman Empire that have survived for almost 2,000 years are known to have been built w/ volcanic ash, quarried from the environs of Mount Vesuvius after it erupted in 79 AD.

We don ' t expect Fr. Ed ' s moral victory in Pampanga to be remembered for the next 2,000years.We would be happy with five, ten or 20 years, enough, we hope, to spawn a moral-revolution- by- example to save the Filipinos from their worst enemies - themselves.
GOOD LUCK Philippines !

It ' s because our country is overpopulated with corrupt officials"

Well.. lets consider him.. Being a MMDA chairman, he has implemented several policies on the road and I think it was respected by everybody.. If he is running for presidency on the 2010 election, I think he really has to exercise his political power.. We dont know yet, everyone can change their minds.. There are certain possibilities and 2010 is yet to come..

Bayani is our Hero. Compare him to those trapos and others like roxas, villar, legarda, escudero, lacson, noli, binay, jinggoy, erap, pangilinan, Bayani stands out because he is all action unlike the other who are all papogi sa media.

Can Bayani eradicate corruption in Bureau of Customs, BIR, Public Works and DepEd and the AFP. We need somebody who can cleanst our country of coruption not those who are espousing their pro poor agenda just to gain their votes. Tell me Bayani if you have that in your program of government to redicate corruption, then I ang my family will be solid for you.!!

well BF is the man for the 2010.. i like BF coz he is very dedicated to his work.. and he is a disciplinarian.. the people who hates BF are those people who dont like discipline. maybe they dont know also how to disciplne themselves too.if only all mayors will agree on BF policy i think Metro manila is much better.ayaw kasi nila kasi masasapawan sila at masasagasaan mga raket nila thats why most mayors in metro manila insecure kay BF. if Bf run im ill be his #1 volunteer for his campaign..for those other candidate like chiz = may napatunayan ka na ba? ke bago bago mo.. jinggoy estrada = tigas nman.. loren = puro salita lalakihan mo lng boses mo babalimibing ka pa ata.. noli= kaya nga di mapatalsik si arroyo kasi ayaw ka maging presidente tapos tatakbo ka pa.villar etc are all traditional piliticians.. look at the track record nlng..

im willing to be my BF volunteer if he runs for president

Bayani Fernando had served Marikina and Metro Manila for so long now.

The time has come for him to serve the whole country.

Go, go, FB!


His running mate should come from the South though, not some upstart from Pampanga.

Hellooo??? Bobo ba kayo? Di nga nya maayos-ayos traffic sa Metro Manila, presidente pa ng Pilipinas? At peste sya, ginulo-gulo nya kaming mga taga-QC dahil sa kanyang palpak na traffic scheme sa Katipunan. Ngayon nagtatago sya at di nya maharap ang lahat ng batikos sa kanya. Dyan na lang kamo sya sa Marikina at mag-golf na lang sya.

Ikaw ang bobo, puro sarili mo lang iniisip mo! anong batikos sinasabi mo! malinis na tao si BF, pag di nanalo si BF wala na tayong pag-asa. Minsan lang magkaroon ng tao na tulad ni Bayani kaya wag na nating sayangin.
