US Money Grant
Recently PNoy received a $434 million US dollar from Millennium Challenge Corporation or MCC (MCC is an independent United States aid agency, chaired by Clinton, that aims to help a third world country or a developing countries to reduce poverty as long as the country meets the criteria of US democratic principles and the so-called rule of law) to help reduce poverty and corruption in the Philippines, wherein PNoy promise that the funds will be used for his dream project for the Philippines.
However, there are many negative thoughts about this PNoy receiving $434 M funds from MCC, though Hillary Clinton expresses utmost trust that PNoy is worthy to be grant by such big money. That is, because of the “Kapalpakan” PNoy administration is doing recently which for example the fiasco of the Manila bus hostage tragedy which until now seems to be swinging; the ever growing unsettled issue of Hacienda Luisita; his proposed opposed toll VAT raise; his cronyism style of hiring cabinet officials; his unverified and sometimes inaccurate accusation on someone on some issues; and other issues regarding his somewhat incompetent management.
So, if the start of his administration signals,”Kapalpakan” or swinging into a lot of troubles and mistakes and some current issues brought by his own administration like the recent fiasco is not properly manage, though he promise change; will he be able to divide the bacon properly and justly whereas the current status of his administration is rain with lot of mistakes and pending troubles which he find it hard to manage? Or will he just waste away such big funds because of his incompetency?
What is the difference between wasting big funds by an incompetent leader with corrupting funds and budget by some corrupt Philippine government officials? Certainly, there is no difference, is not it?
What about his proposed dream projects which he repeatedly promises that he will do? What are these dream projects of him will these dream projects of him will really help the Philippines and gear the Philippines toward holistic success? Okey, let us give him a break that he deserved, though his administration was tainted with incompetency from the very start; and let him prove himself that Kano’s bacon will make Philippines fat.
But, we owe it to the United States and could hold us on the neck once United States become in trouble especially when a big world war strikes again.
Thus, PNoy receiving a US money grant symbolizes Philippines allowing itself to be slave of America when big trouble comes along and the Philippines could not say “No”.
Is this a Philippine Independence or Philippine Dependence?
