    Ano kamo ang itinanim at umaani ng ganito? Naku! masakit mang sabihin pero ang dami! Unang una: Overpopulation sa Metro-Manila! Closed to 20 million na yata ang tao diyan.Natural, lahat ng basura niyan ay babara sa mga major waterways. Poor vision, ng mga leaders at urban planners.Hindi kayang magplano ng pang matagalan.At higit sa lahat ang sistema nating Liberal Democracy, na ang lahat ay madudunong kaya standstill ang lahat at walang na a-aacomplish....

    Kung yung lugar ninyo e binaha ng todo nung Ondoy at binaha ulit ng todo nitong mga nakalipas na araw, lumipat na kayo ng tirahan! Siguradong babahain ulit yan pagdating ulit ng malakas na ulan!

    Sabi ng isang Pilipinong kasabihan, "Ang nagtanim ng hangin, bagyo ang aanihin." Ano kaya ang tinanim nating mga Pilipino para umani ng delubyo? Maging ligtas sana ang lahat. At sana, hindi lang sa mga panahong ito natin nakikita ang mga pagkukulang/pang-aabuso natin sa kapaligiran.

    Watching the news about the staggering rains that have been pounding the metro for more than a week now, can't help but notice the disconnect in our ways and how we deal with perennial flooding. Like the situation at Recto underpass and Lagusnilad. If they keep filling up like giant swimming pools after every big flood, it's time Public Works make bigger drainage systems for those two major arteries of Manila. How else to explain why they won't drain properly? The flood ways should also be depopulated of squatters. Everybody knows they throw their garbage just about anywhere, thus impeding the flow of water every time calamity strikes. Flood ways are not squatted on, common sense, right? In this city though, it's the other way around. Goes to show government doesn't have the political will forcibly putting squatters on the next bus where they came from. For 90 percent of those guys, it's the far flung provinces. If some of them qualify for socialized housing, government should give them that too. But it's not happening. A big chunk of the metro's population is made up of squatters. Notice how it is in Q. C.? The politicos penchant courting them for votes suck, big time. This city paid for it in '09. And we're paying for it again! in '12. It's a crummy , vicious cycle. If it keeps up, we'll pay for it every facking year. Because of climate change. I buy a piece of gum, i keep the wrapper in my pocket until i see a trash bin to throw the discarded gum and its wrapper into. It's quixotic, it's an exercise in futility, but i still do it. Even if people around me are unconscionable litterbugs.
