    I enjoyed watching the parade and ceremony for Marcos. I thought the Philippines did a nice job. I hope he does well so the country will do well.

    from a crow's egg comes a crow and the worst of it is, he will play both sides like a wh*re (china and america) for his own gain.........lest not forget who took daddio in and harbored his stolen wealth and gave him sanctuary.........and the absolute worst of it is that again america will turn a blind eye to all his future endeavors to make a greasy buck as they did with daddio

    The new President has asked people to look forwards and not backwards - to quote from the famous Profumo Affair (UK) "He would say that, wouldn't he" (although that version is not actually the correct one, but sounds better!).

    Wasn't there a very recent photo of the Old Marcos where there was a Picasso on the wall?

    The shoes is one thing but what of the missing many millions? Never recovered, hidden away in Switzerland and Singapore etc etc.

    At least Duterte seemed honest IMO.

    There again as foreigners we ain't supposed to have an option or rather STFU. Family ties are like leopards spots. We can all see how this will turn out.

    Of course the younger generation not know history as they have hope

    All politicians ask the electorate to look forward, as their looking back exposes their inadequacies. It's classic psychology. Once you get to the point of looking back in the US/Philippines political model, it's too late and they can bare their soles at the missed deadlines, broken promises etc (a-la Duterte).

    There are so many things to improve on that would help the lower income people when it comes to working wages and that silly contract process. Instead they focus on things like returning gold to the country, buying everyone a house and rewriting the past. Everyone likes the rainbow story, but life isn't a rainbow, its work.

    Not quite true.

    They Swiss did actually a good job. Because during all these years the Philippines could not decide who should get the money. So it was growing quite a lot. But you might be right, some money disappeared for ever. The old Lady might know where it is.

    Thanks, and yes she knows well where it all is. Of course no one really cares, especially with history being re written by the victors. The younger generation believe whatever social media says today. This is bought about by paying companies who specialise in such disinformation. What chance have this future generation got when lots are uneducated to start with. Like advertising ram it down their phones constantly and it becomes the truth.

    Duterte didn't collect shoes, I do wonder why his daughter Sarah? Didn't try it herself all the way?
    That said politics is a very dirty game.
