The President’s costly trips and how it could’ve helped the country instead.

Well it looks like that the present Philippine President has been on a spending spree going in and out of the country. I was so disgusted when I saw the news today saying that all the expenses that she wasted from 2001 to 2009 didn’t really matter. Hello? didn’t matter? I guess it doesn’t matter for her because she’s up there spending and wasting a good part of the tax payers money on all of those stupid international trips. What the hell is she thinking? Those funds could’ve been used for some project to help the homeless and street kids make something out of their lives, but she would rather dine in some expensive restaurant outside the country. Doesn’t she get stomach cramps when she thinks of how she’s blowing away all that money for senseless drivel? I guess not because if it did, then she would’ve stopped country hopping and started focusing on our country’s problems.

Just imagine, spending over 1 billion pesos on foreign trips and say that there’s nothing wrong with it. I can see a lot of things wrong with it! Number one is, what did she get out of these foreign trips? Has it helped with the current state and situation of the country today? I don’t think so.

Then there’s her butt kissing lackeys that cover up for her and tell the public that her trips are valid and helps the country in so many ways. Not so true in my opinion. If those trips were meant to help the country then why are we in the same hole we were ever since these power hungry presidents stepped in. It’s sad to see how the president throws away all that money in front of the public eye and even have the gall to deny that she didn’t misuse those funds in any way.

Come on! Why can’t they see how so many of our countrymen are suffering from poverty, crime, unemployment especially in the face of this global economic crisis and all she can do is spend $20,000 on dinner.

In my opinion, she’s really giving people a good reason to hate her even more. Lets face it, she’s not super popular when it comes to her own countrymen, and her latest fiasco is going place her ratings right there with the pond scums. The elections are coming up on 2010 and lets just hope that this time everything will be done legitimately, no vote buying, no alterations of the results.. I mean come on now, don’t you think that we’ve had enough of this sideshow circus, what we need are credible and reliable government leaders who can think of their country first.
