I was crossing via underpass towards Manila City Hall when I saw on the steps there was a guy selling them. I was curious that I asked how much he is selling, he answered 80 pesos. I won't blame him because not all were able to go to the event last June 12 and his reasons maybe because he want to profit. Most of the people don't know that the AKO MISMO Dog Tags are more valuable than 80 pesos. The dog tags were given to those who painstakingly fall in line just to go to the event and paid 40 pesos which proceeds to the charitable organizations like World Vision, Gawad Kalinga among others. The wearer of these dog tags are a proud contributors who wanted to make a change for the nation. It's like a merit badge. The fake ones are bigger than the one I have

and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink
this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver." ~ JACK HANDEY
"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day." ~FRANK SINATRA
"When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading." ~ HENNY YOUNGMAN
"24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not." ~ STEPHEN WRIGHT
"When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. Sooooo, let's all get drunk and go to heaven!" ~ BRIAN O'ROURK

To some it's a six-pack, to me it's a Support Group. Salvation in a can!
And saving the best for last, as explained by
Cliff Clavin, of Cheers...
One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff Clavin was explaining the Buffalo Theory to his buddy Norm:
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."

Human trafficking problems are worldwide whenever there's need of people who wants greener pastures in their lives. People take advantage of their situations and cleverly deal with them then scam them that costs them their freedom. Here in the Phils., it usually in poverty-stricken places of the provinces and human traffickers brings them to red-light districts and makes them either domestic slaves or prostitutes. Women are mostly the usual victims. To prevent this, investigate whether the recruitment agencies you are interested in are legitimate. People in power are usually behind this that is why I appreciate Bamboo's song:
Habang may tatsulok at sila ang nasa tuktok
Di matatapos itong gulo
People on top tend to take advantage of the weak and marginalize that makes this song relevant.
