Still Have NO Idea What the Napoles Pork Barrel Scam is all About?

The last few weeks had been a nasty time for both the social and political sectors of the Philippines. When the issue first came up about an unknown business woman and her supposed link to a huge pork barrel scam, everybody thought that it was just a phase, after all, there had been quite a number of issues in the past about the careless use of the politicians' budgets. However, as days passed, more and more evidences came up for air, and for once, the Filipinos realized that maybe this time, justice might prevail.

In a most surreal way, this controversy has now blown up to what Philippine Daily Inquirer's Amando Doronila call as "the object of the biggest manhunt in recent Philippine criminal history".

Here is a reblog from Dulz Speaks, regarding an anonymouse office worker summarizing the entire subject for the sake of the busy and the uninformed. It's quite important to really get to know the important details, so thank you Anon!

(Napagalitan ako ng boss ko dahil hindi ko na fax yung purchase order sa supplier namin dahil ginagawa ko ito. Hindi ko alam kung papano ako makakatulong sa bansa para malunasan itong issue na ito, pero sana sa pag summarize ko ng mga balita, makatulong ako. At kayo mambabasa para naman sulit yung pagalit ng boss ko sakin, i-share nyo na lang itong pinaghirapan ko sa mga social media sites niyo hanggang sa kumalat sa buong mundo.)
Now she is unfortunately a fugitive. Instead of facing what was thrown on her face, she went into hiding. She's a Filipina, she should have known that in doing so, she's not only incriminating herself  but also awaken the whole Philippine's bloodlust. Remember Lourd de Vera and Ramon Bautista's tweet?

Our country still has a long way to go though. My faith in the government will be restored if this case is resolved. No I don't believe that corruption could be erased entirely because that's like saying it's possible to end all lies. But what I'm hoping is that the politicians we have today could at least learn to be better persons, it all starts with that.

    it's not everyday that a person tries to be a help-the-nation person, or yet even try to be one.. but you are helping... even if it is not all at once... one by one, i hope and think that it will be possible to reach out for every one to be aware of what we should be fighting and standing's not an easy journey, but it will be worth it when you leave a trace, even if it is a tiny one, for the ones who will take on the next journey :))
