better research? better read when you research brads. at hindi reklamo ang tawag kapag tumutol sa isang bagay. at hindi yun isang basehan para sabihing tamad ka at walang ginagawa sa buhay. para nyo na din sinabing "BAWAL MAGTANONG"
naisip nyo ba yung ibang kababayan naten na lalong maghihirap dahil sa k-12? sarili nyo lang iniisip nyo mga brad. hindi pangkalahatan ang iniisip nyo. yan ang opinyon ko. pano ang mga eskwelahan na malalayo na minsan kailangan pang lakarin ng mga estudyante para lang makapagaral? kayo kaya ang tumayo sa katayuan nila?

Isa na namang kapalpakan pero wala namang magawa ang mga mamamayan kundi sumunod. hirap na nga mga magulang lalo pa pinahirapan sa dagdag na 2 taon, tapos ano makukuhang trabaho?dh kasi walang trabaho dito. Bakit pilit na kinukumpara sa ibang bansa eh may sarili tayong bansa, tayo ang nakakaalam kung ano ang dapat. pahirap sa may pinapaaral
Di ba ang CCT program ay ang flagship project ng Noynoy admin? Dinky, magkano ang naibubulsa mo?
Taxpayers, wag na magreklamo sabi ng mga a$$-kissers. Magtulungan na lang po tayo. LOL.
A DWIZ ‘exclusive’–how DSWD gyps the poor
Thursday, 12 July 2012 20:56 Butch del Castillo / Omerta
*Only fully-registered users can see this link.*
ONE of the issues taken up during our regular AM radio program on DWIZ yesterday (“Business is our Business,” 12-1 p.m., Monday to Friday, 882 khz) was the need for more transparency in the administration’s Conditional Cash-Transfer Program or CCTP for the poor being run by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
We (with Marou Pahati Sarne as my co-host) led off with the news that a congressional oversight committee led by administration stalwart Sen. Franklin Drilon, finance committee chairman, intended to “scrutinize” the CCTP in connection with the DSWD’s application for P45-billion budget for 2013.
Drilon was quoted as having said it was only “pertinent” for the oversight committee to ascertain “the effectiveness and efficiency” of the program. In other words, the committee wants to be sure if the huge outlay is really helping reduce the widespread penury that has plagued the country for so long.
“We would like to hear from Social Welfare Secretary Dinky Soliman if her agency has successfully plugged some of the loopholes that we and some concerned sectors have identified,” Drilon said.
I then wished out loud for the benefit of our listeners that the DSWD would be more open about its cash-distribution operations because there just have been so many horror stories being told too often throughout the land about this controversial alms-giving program.
(The oft-told one, which Drilon should look into, is about the DSWD’s master list of recipients. Is it true, for example, that the list is packed with many names representing people who are not exactly indigent or dirt poor? In any case, the DSWD has to show the public that its system of choosing the millions of dirt-poor intended recipients of the CCTP is more objective than whimsical.)
It was at this point when a listener called up from Montalban, Rizal, with the allegation that it has become standard practice among DSWD field personnel to actually give only P500 in cash out of the P1,500 intended for every recipient.
The recipient, the caller said, usually has no choice but sign a receipt for P1,500, which means the DWSD employee routinely pockets the P1,000 for every recipient.
The caller added that what’s also amiss is that not all of the recipients on the list are legitimate residents of Montalban. He said he knew for a fact that as a result, DSWD personnel were fighting one another over the sharing of their loot—suggesting that an organization-wide conspiracy exists.
Right after the caller from Montalban dropped this bombshell on national radio, the DWIZ was swamped with calls and text messages confirming the cash-distribution racket—which showed that the same thing was happening in many other places.
Some of the confirmatory text messages sent to us were the following:
From 0923-6661373. “’Yun tumawag kanina na taga Montalban ay nagsasabi ng totoo. Dito rin sa Bulacan, ganoon din nare-receive na CC, P500 lang. Tapos, kapag ask mo bakit P500 lang, sasabihan ka pa na pasalamat kayo may nare-receive kayo eh, nakatanga lang kayo.” (The fellow from Montalban was telling the truth. Here in Bulacan, the same thing is happening. The CCT they get is only P500. If you dare ask why only P500, they say you should be thankful that you’re receiving something for doing nothing.)
From 0933-2456493. “Totoo po ’yan. Isa po ang hipag ko na kasapi sa pantawid gutom. Nagtataka rin ang hipag ko bakit nga raw po ganoon na lang ang tinatanggap nila. Dati nga po P1,500 ang natatangap nila; bakit ngayon P500 na lang. Alam po ng pamahalaan ’yan. Tess Castillo, Pasig City. (That’s true. My sister-in-law is one of those cash-transfer recipients. She has been wondering why the amount she is receiving has gone down to P500 when it used to be P1,500 a month. The government knows what’s happening.)
From 0918-2006273. “Totoo ’yan, P500 lang talaga kasi kamag-anak ko sa Calauag, Quezon prov ganon din. Sa inyo ko lang nalaman na P1,500 pala dapat makuha.” (It’s true that they’re getting only P500 because I have a relative in Calauag, Quezon province, who is receiving just that amount. It’s only through your program that I learned it should be P1,500 instead.)
Realizing that we had a scoop in our hands, I asked my co-host to write the story for our sister company, the Pilipino Mirror.
And so the exclusive front-page banner story of that tabloid for today’s issue carries Ms. Sarne’s byline.
Apart from the usual stock response (that she would investigate the alleged scam), I wonder what else Secretary Soliman has to say for herself.
And what, pray tell, does the Senate oversight committee intend to do about it?
First and foremost I believed Noynoy did not won the 2010 election, PCOS did it for him in connivance with the Oligarch where he belong. Kaya wala siyang pakialam kung nag hihirap ang mga tao and he does not know what and how to be poor, he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Lahat ng ipinakikita niya sa publiko ay pawang publicity at PROPAGANDA lang. Hindi siya family man in fact to this date may Yaya siya he is a boy in a man's body. Tumingin kayo sa kapaligiran sino ang nakikita ninyong nag papatakbo ng mga dambuhalang mga negosyo diba ang mga Oligarch, kayo na ang maglagay kung sino ang mga nalalaman ninyo na nag mamay-ari ng mga malalaking negosyo na nauwi na sa monopolyo ng mga kaanak, kabarkada, kasosyo kaya kontrolado na nila lahat ang negosyo kaya kontrolado na ang economya. Yan ang cause ng non-stop price increases ng lahat ng bilihin, kuriente, tubig gasolina, livestocks, services, pamasahe. toll fee, air fare, lahat na under the sun tumaas na magmula nung umupo si Noynoy.
Ngayon sino ang makapagsasabi na may nagawa na ito sa mahigit na dalawang taong panunungkulan.
