People have the right to protest, and in fact have more reason to protest during Abnoy's birthday. If posters here say that is in poor taste, well then what is in worse taste than buying a porsche (even if it is Abnoy's own money) while prices are rising, people could hardly eat 3x a day because of overpopulation and cuts in the education budget. Well, my wish for president Abnoy is for him to shove his porsche up his a**. Maybe his abnormal nephew josh could give him a hande there. haha! =)

In contrast to the above posts, I feel that these people may have a point. I know that Pnoy doesn't have absolute control on the price hikes but that doesn't mean he should just let it be. He should at least give us a decent explanation why these hikes are happening. And with the ensuing controversy regarding the AFP funds people are just restless as to how sincere really is the government in going down the straight path.

Those are the people who are called "KSP", they will do anything to grab attention, they won't spare anyone even on special events such as birthdays. Personally, I don't think Pnoy is doing great, I think it's the people who responded to his call of "the right path" who are doing great, they are the Rebusa's and the Mendoza's who didn't hesitate to come out of the open to spill the beans on the kind of rotted system that exists in the bureaucracy. I just hope that Pnoy will not just stand on the sideways to watch and see everything go down the drain just like most of the senate inquiries are heading. I really have high hopes on Pnoy but it is slowly fading especially in his purchase of the sports cars, not that I am envious since I can't afford it but he should have think twice before buying it and thought of the people who are making sacrifices to make a difference in this country. He should have thought of the likes of Jun Lozada, who sacrificed almost everything and is now living in dole outs on their day to day living. I felt let down the moment he purchased that car and more so when he claimed that he used his own money to buy it since it showed that his not one of us.

hi, I really hate it when people simply want to play " contras" or anti all the time even when it is uncalled for already. Do this people know that our government has really no direct control over oil prices? It's currency exchange and the demand for oil that determines whether prices will go up or it will go down. Makes me remember people who preach and preach in public or push their agenda on us even if we don't like it anymore and think the timing is just not right. Anyway I wish our President a Happy Birthday and hope he finds a first lady or some to love soon

People just can't be satisfied. These militant groups voted for him yet they rally against him. Worst is that they do it with all presidents or whoever is the president. Instead of rallying, why can't they just look for a job or work at their current mode of living? If i know they only want to be on his position.

That was really in bad taste. There are so many days that they can show their displeasure and they just had to time it to his birthday. I can't respect these kinds of people and I have stopped listening to them. Poor PNoy, he turns 51 today and Gen. Angie Reyes overshadowed his day. Well, he was not doing anything special anyway as he just worked the entire day.
