Pinoys to ‘revolt’ if text messages taxed

Written by Bong Abellon and Fred Claudio Saturday, 17 October 2009 05:00

Two For The Road By Jose Abellon & Fred ClaudioIn the Philippines, and possibly anywhere in the world, there are only two things that are definite in this life - death andtaxes. And both are being imposed upon our kababayans by no less than the lawmakers who are supposedly the Pinoys protectors against foreign businessmen. Look, there’s this another tax proposal coming from the House of Representatives on the five-centavo tax per shortmessaging service (SMS) and multi-media service (MMS).

Feedback By Tenny Soriano

The incubation period started in the summer of 2010. The long simmering feud between some officials of the Philippine Independence Day Council (PIDC) has now cracked open with the mass resignations of key officials and volunteers of the umbrella organization consisting of some 100 Filipino community entities in the Metro Toronto area and suburbs

Rafael “Paeng “ Nebres, PIDC advisor, auto executive and president of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce of Toronto (PCCT) has been notified and told his services and that of his organization are no longer needed in this year’s version of the Mabuhay event, a PIDC sponsored summer festival that is considered as the biggest attraction among Filipinos in the GTA.

FRONTLINE By Ninez Cacho-OlivarezFormer Chief Justice Reynato Puno, speaking before a UP crowd, pushed a shift to the parliamentary form of government which he said would lead to the restoration of the voice of the sovereign Filipino people, adding that the people are “fed up with elitism — of the royal or the blue blood.”

Balitang Kutsero By Perry DiazEver since two brave military officers and a courageous government auditor came out to expose corruption in the military and the Commission on Audit (COA), two earth-shaking events occurred that could break through the massive “walls” that were built to protect corrupt officials during the nine-year presidency of Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

On ‘Willing Willie’

Ducky Paredes‘If we must write rules for children in show biz, it would be best if the networks do these themselves.’

WILLING Willie" is, to me, representative of all that is wrong with television. But, having said that, I am not so sure that the beating that Willie Revillame is getting from all corners, probably deserved as it is, will change things for the better. In fact, a lot of dubious characters are coming out of the woodwork that indicates that there is more to this than disciplining a rogue performer.

John Agustin's Suntok sa BuwanGrabe! Nakakaiyak ang tinamong parusa ng ating mga kababayan nuong Sabado ng bayuhin ng bagyong si Ondoy and Central Luzon at ilubog ang Metro Manila sa matinding baha na ngayon lang nakita at natikman ng ating mga kababayan. Kitang-kita natin sa TV footages dito sa Canada thru TFC TV Patrol News ang kahindik-hindik na pakikibaka ng marami nating kababayan sa Marikina, Pasig, Quezon City, Malabon, Navotas, at kahit na sa rich-enclave Makati City sa rumaragasang baha. Akala mo sa pelikula lang makikita ang ganuong senaryo, lalo na ang ilang pamilya nakasakay sa bubong ng kanilang mga tahanan na inaanod ng matinding baha at nagkawatak-watak ng sumalpok sa ilalim ng malaking konkretong tulay!
