  1. Yan ang bagong pagbabago bigay ni Digong Sayad. Ayan nasa kangkungan na naman ang mga Pinoy at Intsik na naman ang nanalo! Hay buhay! Mga Pinoy second citizens sa sarili nilang bansa!

  2. Ano na nangyare. Bilib pa naman ko sa iyo Duterte. Pati ikaw ba binenta mo na ang Pilipinas. Pina alis ang American base pero ngayon naman Chinese invasion. Influx ng sakit like SARS, kababuyan, fake products and drugs ang pwedeng dalhin niyan.

  3. You have to regulated and imposed the immigration law like deportation if overstaying like what they done to OFW or Filipino tourist in other country and they must pay overstaying and if they make bussiness if they are not Filipino 30 % own by the foreigner and 70 percent owned by a Filipino . Don’t given an opportunity for other foreigner to have a bussiness and then the Filipino has never get any if they make very serious to every Filipino here abroad the immigration strictly so as Filipino we need to imposed to them our rules even you are western or european

  4. Di nagbabayad ng tamang buwis yang mga yan. Tingin sa mga Noypi basura. Walang respeto sa batas natin. Ginagawang kuta pa ng mga ilegal na negosyo tong Pinas. Tandaan nyo din na lahat ng shabu pati ingredients galing jan sa Tsina. Loko din kasi tong si Digong. Pinaboran yang mga Intsik. Kala nya tuso mga Kano. Mas tuso yang nga Tsing Tsung Tsai na yan.

  5. Dapat lang ideport at iblocked at ibanned cla sa Pinas. Babalik din kc mga yan dahil sa lagay na 100k per person. Dapat impliment rule of law. Ang dali dali naman un ipatupad kaso my lagay eh.

  6. PH is still developing! Government should only be opened for foreign investors/retirees and not workers! The problem is they compete with the country's meager resources which the government hasn't managed yet well and raise real property which the locals already having difficulty acquiring! Wala na bang maisip na ibang paraan ang government to make jobs available to Filipinos? Bakit ang Japan nag-progress without the need for foreign migrants/workers? We should not be using Singapore as model for growth as the migrants displaced almost all of the native locals!
