More magic in Manila than Harry Potter will ever have!

THIS IS A JOKE. ONE BIG JOKE. ON THE FILIPINO PEOPLE. SUCKERS YET AGAIN.
This is unforgivable. Unbelievable. Incredible.
Former mayor of Manila Lito Atienza, he who destroyed various historic
buildings, icons of eras long since and cutter of trees, has been appointed
Secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
This is like letting not one, but a dozen foxes into the hen house. What
treacherous plans are already curdling in his mind? Well, if you are a
tree, start counting your days and prepare to become a stump. If you are
a National Monument, you may soon become filling material. Are you a
rare fish? You might soon probably find their way to the endangered
species illegal restaurants of China and HK.
If you are a national monument or played an important role in the roller-coaster
ride that is the history of the Philippines, prepare to be erased from school
books. After all, this changing of our real history has already started. But
this is not limited to flagrant errors on books alone. There is a website called
“wikipedia.org”, a website that claims to be a “free encyclopedia”. This site, on
which anyone can edit any entry they feel like, are being wrongly used by students
for research on homework reports and sadly, accepted by teachers who know no better.
So it is another great leap–no, a giant step backwards for historians and scholars.
As well as almost 90 million Filipinos. Sadly, this country, which tried to elect a good set of legislators, instead found itself staring at election results which ridiculously listed voting areas yielding voting results like 12-0 in the majority of voting booths. This in the very same province that everybody predicted just knew it would happen some time before the magic results happened. It was amazing. Great. Foreigners are encouraged to come visit the Philippines. It is the magic capital of Asia, with any trick possible with the right amount of cash.
