Were you able to watch yesterdays Pres. Noynoy Aquino's SONA?? what is your say about it? Thus he was able to answer all the questions on every Filipino's mind regarding what lies ahead in his administration? Was he was able to lay all his plans in the upcoming years of his service for him to put actions on a lot of problems the government face? As an ordinary citizen of the country how can you help Pres. Aquino in improving the present status of our economy and what can you contribute to the nations welfare?

I was in the office when Pres. Aquino delivered his SONA. I never had the chance to heard it. I just read it from the news that his SONA concerns about the issues with the previous administration. He is making sure that everything will be given justice with the corruption GMA did in our country. Other than that, I did not know of anything. But other critics says that the content and substance of the SONA is not is clear. I just dont know

hello there! i was not able to respond about your comment about my favorite past time but now i have the chance to respond to this because it's really intellectual. the critics are just only critics of this administration. They are not the ones in power! so what they can only do is to state all their criticisms in public! but who would actually notice them. i would just have to think what food i shall provide for my family and think how would i be able to survive the upcoming weeks with my ample amount of money rather than hear those critics tell their comments and just be nuisance to the government!!!!! After all, he gained the trust of the most people who voted last election. and i mean AN HONEST ELECTION without FRAUD! if the fight was like a real close fight with a difference of only one million votes, then there would really be conflict! So let's give him a chance. it's too early to give conclusions! By the way, these critics are being paid for to be critics! So it's their job! so they would do anything for them to be heard! cheers!

well, Pres. Aquino SONA'S is quite good.. and i know that he is sincere what he is saying about the those bad Politicians and those evolved into corruption..as i heard about other people comment, they want to hear from Aquino about judicial killing., but as for me even Aquino forgot to speak about that but i know that is also consider to his mission..what we can do is to support our new Government for their programs. let us bind us together to pray that God will give an open-mind and more wisdom to our Pres. Aquino to know what is right and what is good..

for me, it was okay.. as we all know, it was state of the nation address.. so it's a good thing that he points out the current state of our country.. we should help him alleviate the current status of the country... i liked it the most when he mentioned that they'll look after those tax evaders.. we'll that's good because for some people like me whose earning is just enough, the 20% deducted amount as tax is good enough to pay bills.. then those people who is earning more, they should be paying the right amount of tax as well... without taxes, how can this country survive?. so better let them pay their tax in order for them to help the country's economic situation..

He just cited the status of our country. There are high expectations on his governance where in fact the remaining budget for this year is only 100 Billion pesos from a large amount of 1 trillion-plus pesos. Imagine, the remaining balance from the past administration. They have already spend some like 1 trillion in the first 6 months. Come on, that is very unacceptable. I think the people right now, understands the present situation in our country from that SONA.

at first, i was really impressed that he doesn't need to cancel all classes and work schedules only for his SONA. he is not craving for attention with that but then again it has a replay on all news channels after a few hours of delivery. Honestly i was not able to hear it and my mom is the one who told me the things that he said. I also looked upon the the site wherein comments from that particular event would all be read. It was amazing though! I have seen a thread of comments over the issue! you can actually see people there debating and throwing intellectual punches over the other as comments! With your question on what can we contribute in the present status of the economy, it should start from ourselves being a good citizen and abiding from all the rules. Help other people on what you can "actually" give. If it involves large structure of the economy, we can really DO NOTHING about that but just to watch and observe the ones who can manipulate these things! I admire him for making all Filipinos aware of the anomalies that the previous administration had which we already know for sure. he vowed to take legal actions on it! after all he is a lawyer himself and he knows all about this. i would have to agree on his previous statements before that THERE IS NO RECONCILIATION IF THERE IS NO JUSTICE! I was able to watch a video of it this morning and now i can say to myself that there is no solid process on how to solve the dozens of problems our country is having. But i said to myself as well that you cannot say it with a 45 minute speech if you would refer to solving the country's problems. I personally believe that President Benigno Aquino III would be a good president! comments from my response are all welcome!
