    Ang masama nito. Noon, naalala ko na hindi na kinuha ang isang kahon na complimentary comics noong nasa starfire pa tayo. Dahil nga humihingi ng tax noon pa. SO, nasaan na iyon? Malamang sa hindi, binenta na nila yun.

    Mukhang natabunan na ang isyung ito sa senado, dahil sa lintik na Hayden Kho sex videos.

    Reno, it’s up to the bloggers to keep the issue alive.

    Mi nabasa akong column na mas lalong titigas daw ang stand ng mga hinayupak na taga BIR/CUSTOMS, dahil daw sa AMOR PROPIO, kahiyaan na daw….
    Kaya dapat talagang makialam na si GMA. Fire them all ! otherwise the wrath of the intelligentia will be focused on GMA. Convenient scapegoat itong mga BIR/CUSTOM personnel na ito for the administration’s screw-ups……

    Amor Propio, what a nice name for damned stupid pride. That’s the only thing that’s keeping them from caving. They’re too proud to admit they’re wrong, and so now they’ll insist they’re right.

    di ba dapat UN na ang kumilos dito pag may sumulat sa kanila about the violations? Paano ba mangyayari iyon?

    Gilbert, nag issue na ng statement ang UNESCO, which is the UN body that covers this, and they are against taxation of the books. All the can do is pressure our government to follow the treaty, and hopefully, since it’s already the UN telling them to follow it, they’ll give in. Hopefully.
