August 7, 2009

THE economic downturn hasn't persuaded everyone to pinch pennies. Philippines President Maria Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was at Le Cirque the other night with a large entourage enjoying the good life, even though the former comptroller of her country's armed serv ices, Carlos Garcia, was found guilty earlier this year of per jury and two of his sons were arrested in the US on bulk cash-smuggling charges. Maca pagal-Arroyo ordered several bottles of very expensive wine, pushing the dinner tab up to $20,000.

Well, I didn't expect anything better of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and her cronies, I guess, using the money of Filipinos traveling abroad was not enough, they had to spend a million to live a good life (in just one night). Pretty low eh, but as we are talking about GMA, nothing is impossible, she's as corrupt as we can get.

Lesson: Vote wisely or at least better than this one come 2010, 8 years of hunger and poverty is enough... we (really) need to do better next time.

Don't you just wish this is true? Look below *grins*
