Politicians making empty campaign promises is obviously not isolated to the Philippines, but in the land of bullshitters, Pinoy politicians really take the biscuit. And why not hey? Filipinos won’t remember those empty promises, and life for the masses will probably just grow worse when these scumbags line their pockets even more.
Some of these promises just go beyond ridiculous.
Vice President Jejomar Binay has come out with some real beauties lately.
An end to poverty. Free medicine. Free education. No more income taxes.
And my personal favorite – free wifi for the whole country.
So he’s going to put Smart and PLDT out of business? Sounds good to me. About time somebody did.
Not much mention, of course, where the money will come from to fund all these unrealistic promises. Maybe it will come out of his own pocket, which may sadly mean his little piggies will have to do without aircon.
Here’s a guy who has so many corruption allegation stacked against him, yet tackling corruption is top of his “to fix” list.
He’s recently been mingling with those in the slums, because he just wants “to be with the Filipino poor.”
How touching that a man who has no known businesses, but owns mansions, farms, orchids, condos, resorts and more, really cares about the filipino poor.
Yep, people will definitely vote for this guy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jejomar_BinayPublished in
