Smarter Gadgets and Dumber People

There is no doubt that humans have indeed evolved into who we are today. Our experiences, our visions from the past which is now our reality; and the discoveries we have perfected, all have contributed to who we are now.

Yes, we have developed ways to make our lives easier; we have developed ways to communicate more with people from all over the world; we have device ways to travel faster; indeed we have made a bridge to fill the gap between us all. However, in spite of all these things, we are iving less and less connected with each other. Are you wondering why?

Let us take a look at how those things we have created have slowly destroyed the very purpose for which they were made. Cellphone for instance. Our phones are indeed getting smarter but because of this, we are getting dumber. A cellphone is use so we get to communicate with people. That's the very purpose of it, communications.

Ironically, people are getting more and more isolated from the rest of the world because of cellphones. We go to a party but we don't socialise with people anymore because we are too focused on our cellphone screens. Wether we play games, surf the web, or do something else with our phone, the fact that it draws us away from socialising with others is unquestioned.

I personally have experienced this. There was one time when I was in the office with the rest of my co workers. The room was so quiet. We were not talking not because we were busy doing our work but because we were so busy staring at our indvidual phones.

Look at your kids today. What have they been doing aside from going to school? Do you see them talking to your neighbors their age? Do you still see lots of kids playing outside?

Let us take a look at social networking websites like facebook, twitter, or google plus, etc. Those websites were made to connect people. Yes, indeed they have connected people. They have connected people in a virtual world! How many friends do you have in your facebook account? How many of them you know personally? Do have a friend in facebook that when both of you are online, you seem so close and comfortable with each other? You talk online but when you see each other at work, or while shopping, or at school, you just don't even have the guts to talk or even smile at all. It's true, isn't it?

It seems that people nowadays are socialising in a virtual world only. We have created our own world through the internet, through our phones, through our means of communication. You may not have noticed the very impact of these virtual worlds to our own reality. But let me tell you, it is scarey.

It affects the very nature of human beings. By being trapped in a virtual world, we lost our sense of what is real and what is not. We lost our interpersonal skills. We don't know how to deal with real people anymore when a situation calls for it because we are used to dealing with virtual people only.

Our technology is indeed getting smarter while we humans are getting dumber.

Poor Philippines - What Has Become Of You?

A country of abundant natural  resources; a nation of talented people; a diverse culture; people of rich history; a once proud nation that has become close to a laughing stock of its neighbors.

Philippines, pearl of the orient seas, what has become of you? Your glory is gone and all you have now is nothing but a joke! You have become a victim of greed amongst your own people. They exploit your natural wealth and you have sacrificed a lot of your natural beauty, and for what? Look! You have sacrificed so much only to see the majority of your people suffer. Suffer in the hands the parasites thriving within you. A parasite that slowly sucks the life out of you and your beloved people!

Look Philippines!Can't you see them coming? More parasites are on their way to exploit you more. They will not stop until you have nothing left. They will not stop for their hunger and thirst and greed can never be satisfied. What has become of you now? Why did you not protect yourself from them? Why have you let them do such horrible things towards you? Please do something before it is too late. I will help you get rid of them but I can't do this alone. You need to help yourself too oh my dear Philippines.

Let your fire devour these filthy, close to nothing creatures, and turn them into ashes. Let the strong winds from all directions scatter their ashes in all places so that whatever they have taken from you they will return with all their blood. Whatever life they have taken from your people, they will pay with their own! Let the worms rejoice for they have something to feast upon. They can feast on the very creature who because of their greed feasted on you and your people until nothing is left. They can feast on the creature who drained your blood and your peoples blood. 

Let your water drown the others the fire will not consume. Let them drink and drink until they burst for their thirst of wealth can not be satisfied. Therefore let your water judge them to their death! Let the creatures of the water feast on them.For their greed has consumed the life of your people and even your own, they shall pay what they have stolen with their own life! Let be death through water their punishment!

And if the waters will not be enough to drown them all for there is just too many of them, let your land open its mouth and swallow them to its never ending pit! Or if you wish, let the stones grind them so they will be part of the soil and the trees can feast on them also. For the have stolen the life of your people and your own because of their greed, they will therefore pay it with their own.

Oh Philippines, I dare not threaten you but take this as an advice. Many of them are coming and most of them are twice as greedy as those who came before them. Take my advice therefore and do something to stop them before it is too late. For when these creatures land on your fertile soil, they will grow and they will grow fast, and just like a parasitic vine..they will choke you to death!

Beware therefore of the Binays for they have grown really strong now. It will be a difficult battle for you. The seeds are everywhere and are growing, in fact they have already started choking you. Have you not seen this coming? Beware of Purisima too, for he is clinging on a strong tree. Should it be hard for you to remove him out of the tree, cut down the tree and the vine will have nothing to cling on to. They both will die eventually.

My beloved Philippines, what has become of you? Why have you let these things come to pass? More and more of these parasites will come and it shall be a tough battle ahead of you. Prepare now by getting rid of the ones who are already here!

Terrorist Group Abu Sayyaf Supports the Barbaric ISIS/ISIL in the Middle East

The Abu Sayyaf group based  in the Southern region of the Philippines is one of the most wanted terrorist group in Asia and the world. The group has been involved in so many kidnapping activities in the region and most of the victims are foreigners.

Just recently, the group kidnapped two German nationals, Dr. Stefan Viktor Okonek, 74, and Henrike Dielen, 55, and threatened to kill them if their demands will not be met. They demanded that they will be given Php250 million and that the German government stops its support on US targeting the Islamic militant group ISIS in the Middle East region. The government is given until October 17. Failure to comply with their demands will result in the beheading of one of the two captives.

Here we go again! When can we get rid of all of these pests in our region? These bastard Abu Sayyaf, I thought we already have exterminated them when our government had their all out offensive against these pests. I was shocked that they will emerge again and this time, not just with hostages, but with gestures of support to a much more extreme group in the chaotic Middle East. This is even more alarming than the kidnapping activities.

If these continues, we would expect that these extremely dangerous group would go around beheading non Muslims in the area or forcing them to convert just as what their counterparts in the Middle East is doing. The government should as early as now device a plan to exterminate them once and for all because our own country will become as chaotic as Iraq and Syria. We all can't afford to have this group in our area, not in Mindanao, not in Luzon, or Visayas. We have to stop them no matter what the cost is. If the government will have to spend millions of pesos to kill all of these pest including everyone who supports them, please do. I would be happy to see our country with less highways, or beautiful government buildings as long as we don't have any of these groups present our society. Millions or Billions will be worth spending if the goal is to kill them all pests!

We will never progress as a country as long as we have them among us. We will never progress as a nation as long as we have extremist groups who will divide us! The only way we become a strong as a nation is to get rid of the cancer within us.

And to the government, will you stop all your nonsense and selfish fights? While all of you are busy with your own political and and selfish interest, cancers in our society are destroying us from within! You should all wake up! This issue is not something new but we haven't really resolved them yet, have we? You should be ashamed of your selves!

And to you Abu Sayyaf, you are not even worthy of being called human beings! You are worst than pests; worst than parasitic worms; worst than filth! You support ISIS? Why don't you go out there and fight alongside with those bastards? I would be happy to see you all scattered into pieces and vultures feasting on your remains.! You kidnap people for money and because their government supports the extermination of your beloved Sunni extremist?How about our government holding your families captive because you are a terrorist? That's fair enough, isn't it? After all, you yourselves are doing it.

I can't really wait to see you all torn into pieces, you pests! Mamatay na sana kayo lahat and lahat nang sumosuporta sa inyo. Pati na rin siguro pamilya niyo, mamatay na rin para maubos na talaga kayo ng tuluyan! Mga walang hiya. Mga halang ang kaluluwa. Masahol pa kayo sa hayop! Mga peste kayo sa bansa natin. Kung wala kayo magwang mabuti, mag pakamatay nalang kayo!

FHM Model Drags Her Police Director Boss Into A Disgusting Controversy

Corruption! Corruption! Corruption! Every now amd then you will get to hear this word whether on TV, radio, or even media streaming websites. Just like my previous  post, most of us are as guilty as those corrupt public officials. Why? Because we are the ones who encourage them to do such disgusting things.

Recently, an FHM model named Alyssa Agustin was involved in a very controversial post on her own facebook account. The model was said to have posted that she got away with a traffic violation because of her boss Alexander Ignacio who happens to be a police director. He is police director for plans based in Camp Crame.

So really Miss Agustin? You are proud that you have intentionally violated a trafffic law that you even posted it online!? What kind of a person are you? You should have at least used your brains not your boobs when you posted it. What were you thinking!? You did not only ruined your career but you also dragged the director's name into this.

Not that I would say he is innocent on this matter. My question however is, was he really aware of this? Did he really tell you to use his name in your disgusting act? Maybe he did not or maybe he did. Whether he was the one who encouraged you to do this or not, I believe that the PNP should look into this matter right away. We can't have anyone in the office who can't even follow a simple traffic rule, knowing that it should be them helping the government in executing the law.

To the PNP, take this as a matter of urgency because more and more of these cancer will spread and eventually poison the entire organisation.

And to you Miss Agustin, shame on you!!!!

Pilipino Hackers Hit Aegis Malaysia Website

Aegis Global Malaysia website was hacked by Pilipino hackers in retaliation for the derogatory video that Aegis Malaysia posted and went viral online. In the said video, the Philippines was pictured as an unwelcoming destination for BPO/Call Center companies due to several reasons. The video further promotes that Malaysia is more preferred than the Philippines in terms of support from government, infrastructures, security, and weather conditions.

The video has gathered all sorts of negative responses online. Aegis on the other hand, publicly apologised for the uploading if the video which it claimed did not get the approval of the corporate.

Whether it hasd been approved or not, the video was unethical and thus I personally would say that the hacking activity is good enough to let this people know that we don't take kindly to bullying. We, the Pilipinos are proud people, and it angered me as a Pilipino and an employee of one of the BPO's outsourcing in our country that a company like Aegis would say such a thing after exploiting our workforce. They grew here in the Philippines and comment such as what was in that video is unacceptable especially that it was against the very people who contributed a lot to their growth.

To those who did the hacking, thank you! Although people would say that it was wrong, I would personally express my gratitude for what you guys did. It will show the world what we can do. This is not the first that a Pilipino group spareheaded a hacking activity. We may not have as much technological advantage as the rest of the world, but we have a large number of talented individuals who can compete in the global arena.

China has also tasted our wrath since the Philippines - China stand off on disputed territories. This will serve as a warning to other nation who sees Pilipinos as inferior. We are peace loving but we will not take kindly to bullying and oppression!

The Middle East Chaos

What is my opinion regarding the conflict in the Middle East? For us to understand what really is going on in the Middle East, we need to learn about the geography of the region; the culture of the people; their religions and religious differences; the history of the place; and the politics surrounding the area including its international relations; and all other things about it. These are significant things to the understanding of why the region is in such turmoil today.

First of, the middle east covers such a vast land area which is mostly part of the continent of Asia. This area consists of quite a few number of countries including but not limited to Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Israel, Turkey, and Lebanon. The reason why I specifically mentioned these places is due to the fact that these places play a huge part in the politics of the region.

The world's three major Abrahamic religion was founded and is still present in the Middle East. When I say religion, it includes all sects of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. For thousands of years, these three has been living in the same area with not conflict or at least minimal if there is any. These three religions roots its origins back to the old prophets mentioned in its respective books, the Torah of the Jews; the Bible of the Christians; and the Qur'an of the Muslims.

This region, just like any other places of the world with the exception of a few, did not escape from colonization. Colonized by the British, Americans, and Russians. Not to mention the fact that this has been a stage for major wars in history too.

That being said, we would understand that each group of people or country may have gone through some tough times in the hands of their colonizers or enemies. As a result, each has exerted lots of efforts to strengthen its military. Dictators, religious leaders, political leaders, and the like arise with the purpose of uplifting the pride of their people and country. This is not bad, isn't it?
However, each of this country sees another as a threat as in the case of Saddam Hussein and the rest of the Arab countries. Today, Assad is also seen as a threat to the rest of the middle east. It is normal, given the long history of conflict in the region.But what makes this a huge of an issue is the interference of the west in the affairs of these sovereign states. Why does the west have to interfere? They have to make sure that their interest in the region, both political and economic, are protected.

The US and Britain, have to continually exert a lot of effort and money to maintain allies in the region. We have Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey. Why? This is so these countries can check the growing strength of those countries, the US and the west considers to be a threat to them. We have Iran which has a closer ties with Russia. Iraq which was run by anti US government and Syria too which is run by a dictator. If these western powers do not interfere in the politics of the region, they will lose their influence which is fatal to both their economic and political interests.

So how do they do it? By Simply fueling the conflict! Supposed we have Syria which is run by an anti US government, and Syria's government has enemies within. What the west does is to support its enemies so that it will grow strong to destabilize the present government. When it happens, conflict and chaos arise so that the "hero" of the world can come into the picture.

This is exactly the same shit they do in all places of the world just like in Asia. They hate China because it has grown so strong that it becomes a threat to them. This is the reason why, they have close ties with Japan, South Korea, and the Philippines.When a country or group of countries become so strong, it becomes a threat to them. So what they do is create conflict and have these countries fight against each other. This exactly is the real issue in the middle east.

The conflict was not really about religion. Those bastards only uses religion so they can gather the support of the masses. There is no better way to rally an army than by telling them they will be fighting for God. Learn from the crusades. They made it sound religious but it was economic and political in nature.

Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You But Rather What You Can Do For Your Country

Whether you turn on the television or the radio; or you surf the web; or simply read a news paper, you are likely to come across a report regarding people complaining about a lot of things. It could be a complaint about the weather condition, it could be a complaint about the traffic jams that we get to encounter almost everyday, or about people's miserable life. However, nothing is more ridiculous than a complaint about something that we ourselves could have prevented from happening had we chose to be come responsible individual.

Take for instance, a crowd shouting in the streets complaining about corrupt individual politicians. They say no to corruption! No to political dynasty! Step down because you have not really done something to improve our lives and the governance in general! You know what I think of them? They are hypocrites!

People love complaining about corruption but let us see who encourages corruption in the first place. How many politicians have been found to have spent the money of the country to their own benefit? How many politicians have been found to have stolen millions of pesos from the country's treasury?
And how many millions of stupid people voted for the same politician to run for public office? How many millions of stupid voters voted for the son, daughter, brother, sister, or wife a corrupt politician when they run for office? Let me ask you, are you one of those stupid voters? If you are, then you have just encouraged corruption by not exercising due diligence in practicing your right to vote.

People hates corruption. Indeed we all do. But have we assessed ourselves to make sure that we are doing things to stop it or at least not encouraging it instead? Let us take another example, someone was caught committing traffic violation. When reprimanded by the traffic officer, the person was trying hard to explain or find excuses to justify his violation. To just get away it, the person tried to offer a monetary favour to the officer so that in return, the officer will just let him get away with his violation.
Question: Are you one of those? If you are, then hypocrite! How can you expect to stop corruption in this miserable country when you yourself is the one encouraging them?

We love to complain indeed. If we see that a bill is being passed that would threaten our freedom, we go to streets and exercise our rights to protest; we file all sorts of protest in our bodies of the government which we believe has jurisdiction over the matter. But most of us, if not all are so irresponsible in doing our part to the country. There would not be any laws too harsh, if we just follow the basic ones and be responsible citizens of this country.

Allow me to cite and example, anti littering ordinances. Tell me, how many of you here are guilty of just throwing your rubbish anywhere like empty bottles, candy wrappers, even your chewing gum? I bet all of us are. You see? These are but simple things that we missed to do. Do you honestly think that there is no need for such ordinances? Fools! If you can't follow a simple ordinance as simply as being responsible in garbage disposal, don't expect expect a government to be lenient on you!

You keep asking the government, where is our money? What happens to the budget of the government? Really now? Let me ask you a question, who among you here have purchase any item in a business establishment that doesn't issue an official receipt? Did you even bother asking for it? Who among you here who runs a business that will do everything they can to avoid paying taxes? Parasites!You want the government to help but you don't want to help your government in return. Pay your taxes first and be a citizen before you keep asking what your country can do for you! Be responsible!

A lot of people are complaining because they say the government is not doing anything to alleviate them from poverty. The say they don't have a house yet. They say don't have a job yet! Given those conditions, they say the country's economy has not improved. Ignorant! Progress doesn't happen overnight. You can't expect to land a job when you are just sitting there doing nothing but talk about your neighbor's life. It is not the government task's to give you house nor it is the government's task to feed you all your life. The government will do its part to make sure that we have the opportunity to land a job and support ourselves.

You? Have you asked yourself what you task is? Have you forgotten the saying.. “ don't ask what your country can do for you but rather ask what you can do for your country " ?
