Why is it that everytime goverment wants to show it has political will, it threatens ordinary folk. In the Compostela Valley of death and devastation, reports of looting in a place where there is nothing to loot, government threatened to send in the police. It wasn't like the starving were converging on Forbes Park. They were looking for what was repeatedly announced to be on the way, food aid.
At the airport, people trying to ship out perishable food via air are being harassed by quarantine officers of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources who are demanding official receipts to prove the provenance of ham, before letting it on board.
For God's sake, ease up, boys. No. 1, a pig is not a fish nor an aquatic resource even if Erap tried to teach pigs to swim so he could go on eating them despite the doctor's order to stick to fish. No. 2 it's Christmas. Not everyone has a facilitator at the airport. We are not all connected. People don't ask anything from government except protection from crime and protection from harassment when shipping ship ham for noche buena. Pwede ba? or do pig legs also have to walk the daan matuwid.
