SO RICH, SO POOR

1Binay
Top Spender
According to the Nielsen Advertising Information Service, Vice President Binay is the biggest TV ad spender among the aspirants for president. From January to November 2015, Binay reportedly spent almost 600 million pesos for political ads. Again, that’s 600 million pesos! Or as the Vice President would say, “Maliit na bagay.”

Surge
Despite allegations of corruption, the Vice President’s trust and approval ratings even increased according to the latest survey conducted by Pulse Asia. Two survey questions were asked. One: “Do you still trust the Vice President?” And 2: “If yes, what’s wrong with you?”

Poor
According to the latest Social Weather Stations survey, 50 percent of respondents remain poor. The other half remain in denial.

Poor II
The latest SWS survey showed 50 percent of respondents considered themselves “mahirap” or poor. This, according to Business World, is the lowest in four years. Or as the Manila Times would rather banner, “11.2 million families remain poor.”

Twitter Limit
Twitter plans to allow longer tweets of up to 10,000 characters. The Binays are against the idea.

Reports say Twitter is planning to allow longer tweets of up to 10,000 characters – fueling rumors Twitter is planning to change its name to ‘Facebook.’

Reports say Twitter plans to allow longer tweets of up to 10,000 characters. Manny Pacquiao will soon be tweeting the four Gospels in full.

Last
For the third time, Manny Pacquiao is fighting Timothy Bradley. The Sarangani representative says the scheduled April 9 bout will not affect his work as a legislator. What work?

Denied
The Sandiganbayan has junked detained senator Jinggoy Estrada’s petition for bail. Bong Revilla is asking Lani Mercado, his kids, and their supporters to pray harder.

Lucky
According to a feng shui expert, the luckiest animal signs this year are Rabbit, Snake and Rooster. The not-so-lucky are Tiger, Dog, and Jinggoy.

Sound Bites
“Wherefore, the motion for bail filed by… Estrada is denied after finding that the prosecution presented a strong evidence of guilt against him.”
~Sandiganbayan Fifth Division denying Jinggoy’s petition for bail

I think I saw an Inquirer post that German Moreno is 82. 1933-2016. Everything is confusing these days. I believe you Heckler. 😀😀
