This was sent to me by one of our users showing how the New Abra Provincial Hospital was built. According to the document,
The construction of the New APH was authored by then SB Member Jocelyn Bernos and was approved n October 7, 2009. The cost of the hospital was P180 Million. The amount was taken from a P400 Million loan by the Provincial Government from Land Bank of the Philippines.
After 4 years, the New APH has yet to be fully operational.
Funny little old lady sinno pay ti inaganam? I am not yet demented enough to follow your orders but then if I will maymaysan to latta ti makitak nga reaction ” agkikinnita ken agkakatawa danto latta” Really? You pay for my airfare? thats generous of you but why is it that you still have to wait for a cheaper airfare for yourself to come home? You mentioned a lot of people dont you know that half of them are family friends. Jaworski’s daughter in law Mikee was even an acquiantance, she is very rich but humble not like you Angin ti adda ta ulom Madam.
….. Is $1200 to $1400 cheap to you? I book my flights 1-day or 2-days before I leave. I don’t have to book months before my trip. So, is that being cheap? You don’t know what you’re talking about Big Mouth.
Uray siac adda nacitac nga post mo nga agur uray ka ti cheap ticket di nagudong ka di pilipinas. Agulbod ka manen.
Uray no adda igatang ko ti ticket ko, saan ko nga batuken ti dua nga ribo nga ticket ta itulong ko laengen kadagitay kakaanak nga makasapulen. No maka save nak ti $500 ay ket nagsayaaten ta isuna pay nga ipakan ko kadagiiay makasapul ti tulong nga kaka-anakak? Where’s your brain?

“Corruption is the enemy of development, and of good governance. It must be got rid of. Both the goverment and the people at large must come together to achieve this national objective.” by Pratiha Patil
It is then of common knowledged that small & big corruption are one & the same, that hamper the very essence of progress. In our province “ABRA” the provincial treasury had been put to an unworthy or corrupt use by the politician for the sake of their personal gain. We have seen on our very own eyes how those projects by our present politician implemented, less expenses on the projects more on their fat wallets. As PA said on his foregoing statements on the other thread, that the province had wallowed long enough on poverty. Yet this politician does not see or rather ignore this. What they see; ABRA is a fat milking cow that provide for their capricious lifestyle. Whereas, we the constituent feel otherwise the brunt of this shameless indignity that bury us more to the pit of excruciating destitution. The way our present politician steer the helm of governance in the province bleed us to the very last drop of our hard earn money by instituting higher taxes which the common populace can hardly meet ends. In return this present politician bring false hope by building hospital & roads which are totally useless for they are build substandard and become “White Elephant”. Abrenians wake up, come 2016 forget about the P3k as payment of your vote, it is a short term relief and long term agony.
I agree the white elephant is the new hospital that not even a single abrenian benefitted except for the husband and wife tandem in plunder. Sir magalong nawala nga ung motorcycle in tandem dto nung kaw ng rd panu naman tng couple in tandem in plunder?
we should organise a rally infront of the capitolyo. we should shame these corrupt leaders in a peaceful manner. we should all act together and demand an answer as to where is the rest of the money loaned from the land bank amounting 400 million pesos. we demand that all these culprits headed by our governor to come out of an answer. and if there’s no satisfactory explanation, we must fight and demand for their resignations. agkaykaysa tayo kakailian!
Lets do it we wl imitate the picnic at luneta turned a rally.

may dalawang porky napunta sa london. si jay at sylvia valera go. adu kuwarta da nga anakidiablo nangalalaanda ya ngata? isu dan sa ti contractor diay kalsada nga burburburenda diay tayum. imbaknangda ti kuwarta ti ili tayo nga abra. nakababain kayo diablish aglalo la unay kenni demonic kenni anakna nga congjoy napuskol panagruprupa da tiennen baknang kayo tinakawan pweh!
Private citizens are fair targets? Especially if there are no concrete proofs of the accusations. Hmmmm
correct me if i am wrong but for all i know sylvia is serving as a local official in zone 6.
Jay also is a public official?
napoles is not a public official but she’s implicated as the mastermind of the pork scam. if someone else have a massive unexplain wealth then obviously he/she the end recipient of all the corrupted funds in our province.
Have it your way. Is Jay implicated in any criminal activity? Hmmm
I think Napoles was detained due to false imprisonment of Benhur Luy,not because she is wealthy.
sylvia valera and J go are already rich before their family entered in the politics. So in my opinion they have the means to travel and go to other countries. Even when their families are not yet in the politics,they had visited other countries as well. I am here in this site not to argue, i am just giving my own opinion.thanks.
Being rich is not a guarantee that u will not steal. Look at gma, enrile, and others they are rich yet they are the most corupt in the history.
I do not see your logic.Sylvia and or Jay do not hold office to have access to the public coffers.Their signatures can not release government funds to my knowledge.
Big time talaga if the case is tax evasion letche kau samantala ung mga politiko na dinedepensaan mu nun e they were asking the us govt for tax exemption meaning d cla bg time when they were in us.
They are not govt oficials but they are recipient of govt projects that are subject for investgation because it was ordered by coa to remove and replace
@JOSEF…huwag muna…hintayin muna natin ang response ng PCSO at DOH sa letter ko to make sure. I should be getting this in a few days…please pra segurado tayo. Thanks.

Name calling is not appropriate for an old Lady like you Madam. It is easier to call someone a name than to offer a reasoned and logical arguments. The problem is that it says more about You than the person you are attacking. To quote,” Stupid is as stupid does ” ( Forrest Gump ) meaning your action show you for who you really are. Husto ngad diay kunada nga Ap apera ka ken Buakaw. Will i see you in Las Vegas? Well, i am a friend of Nona Valera, kabarcada tay cabsat ko ni Zinia Collet Astudillo and Bobbi, they are all based in Maui.

I can also levitate above and below! he he he
The trusted ears and eyes of the President already heard enough of the shenanigans of our governor and congresswomen. How about the different town mayors? Were their projects posted by COA at the other thread were certified as “true and correct” by your honest observation especially of the amount involved? I believed that not all posters here are residents of Bangued that they don’t know how these mayors were causing poverty of their respective constituents. If we don’t expose also their corruption practices, how do these ears and eyes initiate the necessary actions in fumigating these pests? Besides, we the OFWs are also eager to read or hear how you guys persecuting these thief municipal mayors so that we would be able also to share our humble opinion in finding solutions leading to the prosecution of their shenanigans.
@OFW-IRAN…I am sure we will get to them, “ONE STEP AT A TIME”
If the DOJ expedite it like the Ampatuan case,I dont know when then. Justice delayed is justice denied.Political will and resources is needed if Pinoy is serious about it. I do think it will take longer than 3 years to process it.
By then there will be a new president and it will be a new ball game. Pardon my pessimism,it is the filipino way till it is proven otherwise. It will take a convicted politician to go to prison to remove my reservations.
LECHEKA, …nasayaat met ta kabarkada gayam ti kabsat mo ni Zinia ken Bobbie. Nasaysayaat no isuda ti pagdamagam. Adda ditoy balay ni Zinia idi naminsan nga aldaw ta napan kami nag breakfast.

I don’t have to impress you at all ta nakakumot ka. Awan pay respetar ko ti nakakumot. Capice?
I don’t need to ask people who you are because from the way you talk its already obvious nga palengkera ka. If you are so rich and important why do you need to try to impress me. If i am so stupid why do you care, what my opinion is. You have been critical of so many but can not handle when someone is critical of you. You think you are the mightiest because you are the daughter of a small politician just like your mind. Oh! i miss your favorite lines ” I am the daughter of Don Cagaid, i am the sister of the appointed Mayor of Lagangilang, etc. ” Do you define yourself by who you know rather than who you are? If anyone has a difference with you, you call them names, what if i will call you Istapadora, would you love that?
LECHECKA, uray ket kunam met nga kagayyeman ti kabsat mo ni Zinia Astudillo, isu la ti pagdamagamom no ania dayta ibagbagayo nga estafadora ta siguro met ngata ket saan nga sumurok kumurang ti istorya na kanyam.

@Carding Cuaresma….Please read from the beginning how this all started. I cannot just swallow the “personal attacks” of LECHEKA who is hiding underneath his/her blanket, kaya matapang siya. Hindi ko alam kung bakit siya takot na lumantad para magkaharapan kami. Kahit matanda na ako gaya ng sabi niya, makikiboksing pa rin ako basta karapatan ko. Hindi na ako naniniwala sa kasabihang ” be the bigger person”. Wala na sa akin yan dahil umaabuso na sila.
BINGo !!! Bullseye Carding….HaHaHa
as long okay saadministrator mga post namin dito kame kawmggawa ng thread at bago ka lng dito
Again, ” by thy words, you are justified, and by thy words, you are condemned”. Your thoughts are off tangent from the issue. Your words show the kind of people you are. I know you are professionals but you speak like palengkira and canto boys. Personal met daytoyen kakabsat, linnaing ken pinnangas. Ammok nga saan nga kayat nga basaen ti taga Abra dagiti dakdakamatenyo ken la lalo nga awan maitulongna ti panangsolbar ti problema nga corruption ken pammapatay nga mangparparigat ti provincia. Ti pagpapatangan koma ket no kasano ti pannakaadda ti good governance ken pannaimula ti ethics nga target ti compania ni pres. Pinoy iti ‘tuwid na Daan”.
Inay ko po! Dapat ang matatanda ang maging uliran sa maganda ng asal. Na saan ang pagpapakumbaba at pagmamahal sa kapwa na basic teachings of Christianity. Remember “those who humbled themselves will be exulted, but the proud will be humbled”. The Son of man, humbled himself up to the cross for all the sins we committed, should be our guiding example for us who claimed to be Christian. Please, Please, please stop those kinds of words. For God’s sake, prove that we are true Christians in Abra. Sapsykoma ta maaramid nga kasta
This time u are wrong, tagammasid. |Deta innapa ti magustoan ti taga Abra nga basaen, denggen, ken buyaen. hehehehe
Maybe you are right n I was wrong, because in issue of ‘educating voters for baranggay election’, only 4 participated to give itheir much needed opinions until now. It appears that our interest is nothing but on criminality n ‘ siga siga” matters.
Syoke ken Tagamasid, Isu pay met ti nakakas-kas-ang kadatayo nga agkakailian. Naregregta tayo nga makipartisipar iti innapa, pinnasindayag, pinnadakes ken intriga nga awan pagma-maayanna. Uray ni nanumo nga kaarruba, ad-adda met nga tsismis ti saparenna ngem ti agagawa koma iti kabibiagna. Iti panagkunak ket agingga iti saan tayo nga agpanunot nga maki-biang wenno partisipar iti nasayaat tapno agprogreso ken mapasayaat ti sanga-kaarrubaan iti ili tayo, ay ket, kastan to latta nga agnguy-a tayo nga agkakailian. Ket kastanto latta met nga ni natured ken nakaramuten nga pamilya ti politiko ti makakaammo nga mangin-inutil kadatayo. N’ya aya ngarud kakabsat ken appo nga naindayawan, ket datayo mismo nga umili ket nalabnaw met ti panagayat tayo nga tumulong wenno agboluntaryo koma nga mangpasayaat iti kasasaad ti ili ken probinsiya tayo.
Try to relax Madam O…..true Christians are kind, generous, forgiving, and very understanding. If they sweep your face on the floor like what what they did to Pedro Abrenio and Dr. Neil Banez, just remain calm and laugh for laughing is still the best medicine for any kind of heartaches and headaches. They didn’t lost their temper but maintained the high standard of ethics or professionalism for they know that they were just dealing with pretending Christians. Do you know the characteristics of these children of their parents who doesn’t have remorse for the feeling of others just to defend the misdeed of somebody else? If you knew then why do you care? Just ignore them like the two gentlemen did who humbly presented or defended their case even up to the point of asking forgiveness. Now, that’s something different that shows how fine gentlemen and true Christian leaders they are that our youth of today and tomorrow might want us to emulate.
This is not a sermon Madam O because the truth of the matter is, I could sense your natural courage, your honesty, and your hidden unconditional love and concern to your province to be materialized not in this venue but God willing three years from now. Hence, we would like you to preserve them and just feel relax and always smiling for the meantime. Definitely, it’s should be then your time as well as those who really cares real justice and prosperity for there’s no more PDAF or any kind of funds to be entrusted to the elected government officials by that time. These fund will be then transmitted to the different government implementing agencies like, Dept. of Public Highways, Social Services, Education, etc., therefore, why do the thieves still have the appetite to run for any elective office?
Greedy politicos like takit, and others are the root cause of what happening now in our country.
ALAaaaa? Kasano ngaruden dagita PAGS/badigards da? Adda pay ngarud suelduen dan? Agis-isemen a dagiti PNP ta awan unay sakit ti ulodan no apan agbirok ti husto nga trabaho dagitoy. Pati love ones da agpamisa da pay ngata iti inaldaw iti uneg ti uray makadomingo laeng bilang panagyaman ken Apo Namarsua.
Saan tay agyaman iti dakkel ken Apo Presidente no agpayso nga awan ton ti funds dagitoy nga politiko ken politikana? Bareng a no agpayso ta narugguian sa met nga suspendido ti release ti funds da effective this month.
Thank you Lord for you are not abandoning us completely. You are really a loving God that knows when and how to save us from further harm especially from the hands of these thief and greedy politicians. We could see now a little light at the end of the tunnel and please Lord, do something that prevent these thief traditional politicians to run again this coming national next election or any election to come. Please don’t allow them completely although they still refuse to amend their evil ways in worshiping their Boss (devil) that he might decide now to throw them in the lake of fire. Instead, allow them to go to jail so that they will find out the TRUTH about life and become a converted soldier of Christ like Garcia who refuses to get out from jail because he was not satisfied yet in preaching the Gospel to his co-inmates.
Don’t hate me thief politicians, but be thankful if you could find a better way to find the WAY, the TRUTH, and the SECRET to experience temporary real life and beyond.
Wen, uray no naiyaw-awan ni Carding Cuaresma ditoy nga suli, Eric Shawn, publiko daytoy a nakailanadan daytoy diskusyon ket uray met no agdadamo la dayta tao, adda karbenganna nga mangiyebkas iti kapanunotanna. Tama naman siya a. Kas met nga agpayso tiendaan nga pagaapaan ken pagpipinnungotan dagiti awan delikadesa na ditoyen. Ita agkampanya sa pay metten ni Pokka-Sulvatanan. Apayen, napananen daytoy diskusyon maipanggep iti daytoy 400 milyon nga impautang ti Land Bank iti gobyerno ti Abran?

Makur, it’s obvious that we have nothing to talk further regarding this issue. Both persecuting lawyers headed by Madam O and the defendant lawyers headed by Lecheka are now resorting to name-throwing or character assasination. In my opinion, I think nobody has an edge except that all Abrenians in the whole world are now feasting again for this very important development aiding them to brainstorm their mind for the next election/s. Of course, the subject person/s are still presumed innocent until proven otherwise. But this will not deter us to judge them by the ballot when election comes for their accomplishment speaks volume as per COA reports.
Therefore, what left for us is to start encouraging now those who has natural desire to serve their constituents taking advantage with the suspension of funds that may be extended until the next coming election or permanently thereafter so that honest and righteous individuals have the courage to run as political candidates. I think this is one of the Divine interventions for the fulfillment of their calling or mission in life to serve God’s people especially the underprivileged, educationally and economically speaking.
You are right Pagayam KABULYOG. With the exposed PDAF anomaly. The country now is threading towards a revolutionary change. In a sense that, with the impending total abolition of the fork barrel, will our present brand of politicos desire to run for a political position any longer? what will be the reaction of the masses who milked on the politicos during election? Will there be a major transformation in the political system. Or, will the Aquino administration and cohorts work hard to maintain the status quo?This are the things that many Filipinos are asking in their mind. I believe that divine intervention is very much present in the human life. I am not interested in throwing stones to perceived corrupt politicians. But I am hopeful that things will change and it will be for better. Someday, somehow, evil subsides and unselfishness flourish in the heart of men.
Makur, Kalbuyog & Naeling. There is a saying of Eleonor Roosevelt;
Great Minds Discuss Ideas

Now, above discussions where are we???
I do not blame our comrade comments above for they invoked anger on their writing arguments to asseverate or vent the glowing fire of their inner emotions in order to achieved contentment defending their assassinated dignity. But small did they realized that their dignity are diminished a little bit above dork.
Now, can we continue again on our discussion on the vanishing part of the P400M APH Loan by no other than our very own Governor Takit Bersamin. The Picnic protest by Josef is an excellent idea, if no harrasment will come on the family of those persons that will attend. Now, any other to express our dissatisfactions?
@BODONG, i am humbled.
Will just pray for everybody’s safety when and if this will push thru. Hope this is not just a dream.
Count me in!
I mean; Now, any other way to express our dissatisfactions?

@POKKA-SULVATANNA……Sweet! kind words indeed. I guess it is a human nature reaction when your honor or dignity is treated like a doormat? Especially from people you don’t even know or who doesn’t really know the “real you”? I could be quiet why not, but these gotta stop. I am not the politician here. I am just one of you all…commenting, and sharing my opinion I am not attacking anyone here? This is a dialougue site. My opinion is my opinion. If they don’t like it say something, don’t attack me personally? Why is their blood boiling whenever I express my opinion…I don’t understand? My life is my life…that’s none of anybody’s business? I don’t talk about their lives? I know people who could not even come back to America anymore because they defrauded their church’ monies. She is an abrenian. Now I just read here that Glo Florendo run away with her association’s money? I also know about someone charged with attempted murder? Do I talk about them? NO….I don’t ask them what association association in LA did GloFlorendo belonged to? Did I ever say anything about MORNING GLORY ? So many I know but I am not gossiping about them. Did I ever go to LA to try and find out if they committed a crime? Isuda ket tawagan da amin nga tao ditoy Hawaii asking about me? What a LOW-LIFE people are these?
Nong Freddie Bobila always tell me to be the BIGGER PERSON, I am tired always the “bigger person” all the time. They are very abusive and it has to stop. How I wish I know who they are?
SYOKE,… you mentioned a name of Mo Valera if he is friend with LECHEKA . Are you hinting me? I am suspicious?
I am so sorry and I apologize to all! this is not me but I have to do what I have to, to defend my honor and dignity.
Would you just be quiet when people continuosly step all over you and treating your like a doormat? I WON’T.
Ops, I was just asking lechesuna, if mo is also his friend, manang. I am not hinting you of anything suspicious. Unless you suspect me as real syoke. . . . ayay, naganko laeng detoy syoke ditoy. he he he. Manang, tay green bucks a no agkitata a wen. Uray 100 dollar-bill laeng ta adda arkos toy dodoogan nga walletko. tens in advance.
@Syoke….uray diak ammo no sinno ka, anytime no ada makasapul tulong kaniak. I am very known in Lagangilang and Maui for my generosity.
I don’t know if you guys remember the “late Alan Maligpas” of Gazette Newspaper and News contributor of abrenian.com. He borrowed $5,000 cash from me and was personally delivered by my daughter at the Intercontinental Hotel in Manila. He said he needed to help revive his newspaper company. I was offered to own Gazette but I refused. I just wanted to help the guy. I was NEVER paid back ur la koma makisao kaniak…NADA. I advertised for my ONE STOP CAREER, LLC business but none happened. ( I was recruiting nurses for my clients here in the US. ABOITIZ-JEBSEN MANPOWER were my interviewers and testers). Dayta ti connection ko met ti ABOITIZ. That’s why I had easy time to talk to them about ABRECO’s problem. The late Mayor El Bernos and Gen. Martin knew all about this. I wasn’t saying anything until now. Kayat ko la ngamin nga ammuenyo no ania ti kinataok. Natulungak, naasi-ak, narespetarak ken nawadwad ti kapanunutak nga tao.
Just like my grandfather and my father. We were always known for our generosity love and kindness for others. HISTORY OF ABRA speaks for my father & my grandfather….(refer to Filipiniana Section at the National Library in Manila). Isu nga diak maawatan no apay nga dagitoy sao nga sao ti saan nga nasyaat don’t bother with their history. The NOW ASIST speaks for my family’s generosity also….lands my family had donated for the school. HISTORY OF NAGTIPULAN speaks for who we are? Ask your parents and grandparents. UPLANDS is where my grandfather come from. Siguro gapu ta ITNEGAK, isu nga they like to always dominate me here at abrenian.com ken diay thread da nga Abra Politics 2013. Awan babain da dagitoy nga tattao. Again, I wish I know who these low-life people are? Isu nga awan serbi na nga sayangek ti laway ko kaniada ta naka mascara da met. Buteng da met nga ilantad ti ruprupa da ta agririnnapok kam koma.
Mabasa da daytoy, buakaw kuna danto manen instead nga dgiti dakes nga kapanpanunutanda kaniak ket malawlawagan ti nasayaat. It’s their prerrogative to be NICE or EVIL.
BTW: I did not even know or met Alan Maligpas. he was referred to me by my friend Sysop,
What happened to the adage “Silence is Golden”.Keep talking to erase all doubts.

She does not have to tell us tales about herself.People and readers at this forum have their opinion of her by the way she conducts herself in this thread.At her age, she should know better.Pardon me, I am sounding like a broken record now.
I observed from the grapevine of senior citizens that talking out their experience of life especially their positive accomplishments is a good form of mental therapy especially if they are suffering some kind of illnesses as part of aging. I have a lot of friends of this kind but others misinterpreted them as arrogant. They were oblivious to the fact that they too will become senior citizens and might end up far worse than them that they could never imagined. I think this attitude is a part of aging for I observed it too to my grandfather when he was so proud in relaying to us his positive accomplishments in life. In the case of Madam O, I think she is still young enough to fall on this trap which I inclined to believe that she is just trying to picture herself in the most honest modest way so that we may give her just a little respect. She was just forced to do so without any intention of gaining favorable impression because some of us have already assumed that she is just “just just”. On my humble part, I can’t blame her if it’s the only way where we could continue dealing with her and discovering the best of her yet unlike Sir Pedro Abrenio who totally forgotten us in our quest for a new prosperous Abra.
Defending the indefensible.
@ Kanaig, May I refer you to the following videos
“As Cicero the great Roman statesman once said, But if you were to read or hear about other nations, you would discover that the greatest states are made unsteady by the young, sustained and restored by the old”.
Cato Maior De Senectutue (VI,20)
Simply to write somebody off because of their age is a great mistake! I have lived enough years of life to be able to speak my mind and to speak the truth as I see it. I state my credentials to lend gravity to the utterances I speak.
As the Bibles says, “Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment” –(Proverbs 1:19). If we disagree let us argue together so we can get to the bottom of things, and let us find the truth together! I trust my voice will give a unique perspective on the events of Abra and that we can fight corruption in high places which is ruining our country for future generations..

Let the plunder filed against takit resolved by the ombudsman soon he will join vicsyd in bicutan or napoles in laguna
I think there’s already a kind of plundered filed against him by mayor Jenrex. Maybe another one is possible concerning the anomalous construction of APH and other substandard projects. Anyway, what is the development of the triple charges against the father n son Bernos? How about the vote buying case? Ay apo, talaga nga paturogen ti kuarta ti caso! Where is justice in Abra? Money is above the law? .’Justice delayed is justice denied’
Just my take on your questions TAGAMASID: from a reliable source, the “vote-buying” case was originally filed by Gen. Magalong. Somehow he dropped the case after the elections. However, I am following up on this matter why it was dropped?
APH: I sent a letter to DOH (copy furnished to Sysop for posting) to confirm the “assistance to purchase equipments” that was already approved by them. We want to know if it was already received by APH or not yet. We’re trying to find a way to get a copy of the Loan Agreement from LandBank. We want to know the interest payments and HOW is it going to be paid back? We’re also getting information from JICA of the claimed 20K aid to APH if it was a donation or loan?
Jenrix’s plunder case is still pending. I was at the Ombudsman office talking to their legal Dept. a couple of months TO ASK WHAT IS THE “HOLD-UP” ON THE CASE? They are short of investigators for Northern Luzon; there’s only 11-investigators for all cases. however, they already have a “case number” assigned meaning they are getting there. We need to push more. I will send again one of my NGO associates to follow up.
Saanak unay nga makagaraw ta kuarta met amin ti agandar. Every move I make, kuarta amin ti agandar and I am spending my own money for all of these. Am planning to do a fund raising for “MOBILIZATION” so I can do more. Media alone will cost me 20-50K. Awan met ngamin ti makuna nga PSA dita Pilipinas nga kasla ditoy US koma.
God Save Abra (GSA) is looking at the COA reports. So many questionable money issues found by COA and it’s all in their report. Abrenians must do something to get Justice against these kurakots.
Sayang madam omli jay vote buying nga kaso da bernus now that the comelec is sincere in their mandated task
I hope and pray that this GOD SAVE ABRA organization is the one that we have had been waiting that could change our province for the better. Judging alone of what they are doing, although it’s only the tip of the iceberg of what we read from the above comment of COMLI, someone with their mind could discern their burning desire of saving our province from further economic deterioration and scary “peace and order” condition.
Would it be possible if members/officers of this organization would be our front leaders in the future? Hopefully, two of them will become our governor and lawmaker while the rest will become mayors in their respective municipalities. My suggestion however, is, to be very careful in the selection process by conducting secret background investigation for every member who wishes to file his/her candidacy.
If that would be candidate is a respected religious kind of person, helpful or generous, loving and forgiving, could swallow his/her pride and meet anybody in bad or good times on the filthy ground, and most of all: has the balls or clitoris to face the sick or thief politicians, there’s no doubt in my mind that the “ears and eyes” of the President would notice these and might send his Army to protect your voters from the vicious political leaders/PAGS of your opponents. Majority voters are just scared that they could not really practice their right of suffrage, therefor, you really need to kiss the ass of the President.
Dakkel unay san ti gastos mo Madam, but come what may in the future election/s or to the future of your organization, you already showed how loyal or serious you are in achieving the vision and mission of your organization for the province that you can not just ignore, in spite of your good life that some of us envied but ashamed to admit. Adu met ti mabalin mo nga tulongan dita America, apay pay laeng nga ti probinsiya nga nakayanakam ti pakabo-ongam no di ket naidum-duma ka talaga Madam O. Nagpapalakas ka yata ng husto kay Lord para safe ka pagdating ng araw, di ba? (I’m just kidding). How I wish that I could also give something back to the community where I was born!
Well good luck, GOD is always with you!
Adu kuarta ni Madam Comli ta agpa fund raising kano, WTF!
corr.: someone with their right mind……………..
As the Good Book says, “Let us not grow weary in well-doing. for in good time we will reap a harvest”.
May nakapaskil doon yata sa lumang hospital na ginagawa ang cribwall (worth 14 million) na matatapos ang gawa ng November. Hopefully, matapos nga ng November para magamit.
Pero, ‘yong bagong hospital, wala pa rin bang balita kung kailan ipapagamit ng buo? Hayan, at may karagdagan na ngang news na magtatayo ng mga ‘birthing facilities’ sa mga lib-lib na lugar para doon manganak ang nga buntis. Dini-discourage ang panganganak sa loob ng bahay para maminimise ang child-birth fatality. So, siguro ngayon, magiging in-demand ang mga propesyonal na komadrona na mag-handle ng klinika (birthing clinics) sa mga liblib?
Koment idiay maysa nga thread idiay FB: “Medical and Dental missions are in full swing in Abra. Wonder why? oh elections are coming again!…we should have elections every month so our folks will have free basic services.”
Agingga tay la ngata nga pa-medical -medical misyonen ta awan pay met maganab dita hospital-en? Kakaasi latta ti nanumo nga mannalon ken ordinary nga tao ta malak-laksid da latta nga mapanunotan nga maikkan iti rebbeng nga pag-sayaatan nga awan ti ulterior nga motibo na. Dayta misyon-misyon nga deta, para lang man mettten iti gimmick nga pangpasablog iti tao tapno mala da ti butos da. Agingga ita, ti KONSENSIYA ket estranghero latta kadagiti agtuturay. Ala ketdi, aramiden la deta hospitalen nga pagumokan ti pannikin ta di met malukluktan nga maipausaren.
It was mentioned in one of my discussions with someone that the APH is a Governor Eustaquio Bersamin legacy? Can this be explained please?
legacy of kickbacks ni quintin berona napan ngted sop ken takit, ni birthing place d pwede kc wala sa standard
After years of so much money used to be paid from hard earned tax of poor Juan, the new APH is still not functional? Sorry my friend, but this is a blatant manifestation of a legacy of incompetent, corruption and greed! What a legacy to a once honorable family claimed by Dr Leo!
OSG bid to quash TRO on pork barrel opposed
By Christine O. Avendaño
Philippine Daily Inquirer

Million People March. INQUIRER FILE PHOTO
MANILA, Philippines—“The monster itself should be slain at once.”
Samson Alcantara, president of the Social Justice Society, told the Supreme Court on Wednesday that the arguments used by the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) in seeking the partial lifting of the temporary restraining order (TRO) while the constitutionality of the pork barrel system was being reviewed supported his position that the program was flawed.
“Respondents, by asking for a partial lifting of the TRO, based on humanitarian grounds, have in effect admitted the validity thereof,” Alcantara said in his reply to last week’s OSG comments to the antipork barrel petitions before the court.
The OSG said more than 400,000 recipients of education grants and hundreds of thousands of indigent patients dependent on the congressional Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) would suffer because of the TRO the rest of the year.
Alcantara said acceding to the OSG request would “allow the release of millions of pesos for very questionable projects, activities and transactions, thereby enabling the lawmakers to still continue with the pernicious practice called pork barrel.”
He scoffed at the argument of the OSG, which is representing the Palace and the House of Representatives, that the alleged PDAF abuses were problems of implementation and did not go into the constitutionality of the law, which the court upheld in three previous rulings.
Alcantara said the pork barrel system posed “dangers” that could not be solved alone by prosecuting offenders. He said retired Chief Justice Reynato Puno condemned it to be “evil” while the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines called it an “act of terrorism.”
“It is the mother of all scandals and very destructive of society,” he said, adding that the best way to solve the problem was to “totally eliminate it.”
“If it permits a continuing and blatant violation or circumvention of express constitutional mandates, it should be outlawed without further delay. The monster itself should be slain at once,” he added.
Alcantara noted that pork allocations had ballooned from P12 million for congressmen and P18 million for senators in 1994 to P70 million and P200 million for the lawmakers.
“Surely, these will double or triple in the near future, unless the pernicious practice is stopped now,” he said in his five-page petition.

I posted the above just incase you have not seen this article: The rest of the “PORK” is not going to be released. From this information, NO MORE PORK for the APH I’m sure. We sent petitions with SJS to block lifting of the TRO. Note the reasons of why the PDAF should not be released. We are also sending petitions to block the General Appropriations approved for 2014 PDAF. Definitely NO PDAF or DAF until after their term of office.
Kitaentayo no mailippas dayta APH without the 2013 PDAF ta dayta funds to complete the APH was released long time ago. In addition, there was a loan of 400Million plus PCSO plus JICA that the people of Abra needs to find out.
To date, we have not heard his (the governor) side of the story about these allegations from everyone
GSA (God Save Abra) also got the COA Reports and we noted so many discrepancies and questionable implementation of funds. We are in the process of following through with COA, It’s a lot of work guys, but someone has to do it for the sake of abrenians.
madam comli we are in the same side against corrupt politicians in abra but i want you to know that most of the bloggers here are connected to the internet iether thru mobile or wireless connection meaning they have read already what you had repost here pls dagdag espace lng yan lets focused how we convince our kabayan that takit is corrupt as his wife,
@Eric Shawn…no problem I was just hinting everyone that the reason probably why the APH is not completed as yet because they have used all the money alloted to the project THINKING they would still be getting their share of the PDAF to cover it for this year.
