Obama In Berlin

I will pray that Obama will win the 2008 Presidential election and a Vice President Hillary Clinton.

It will change the meaning of being a minority in the land of milk and honey.

It is time for the colored people to be accepted in America without discrimination.

where people from different nations are melted into one pot. Where languages are spoken in different varieties.
Where people from different walks of life can be seen and be felt.

United States of America is not about the color white it is about the yellow,red,brown and black cultures of America.

The land of milk and honey wasn't built overnight. decades of segregation and the rights of an individual to exist in America is a everlasting struggle for a Minority
but a black man can change all of that in November.

Third Quarter

The third quarter of the U.S. Economy.

Sallie Mae, Freddie Mac, Wachovia and other financial institutions in the United States are in trouble.

Their losses reported in billions of dollars.

The domino effect of the sub-prime mortgage problem linger in the US Economy.

Realtors are busy selling houses in cheap quantity. The American families lost their houses and the ever changing world of money lending is still being felt all over the world.

The price of oil dropped. A big help for all of us but the war in Iraq is still alive and a new threat blossom right across the boarder.

The world faces new challenges. The news about global warming is being put aside for a better political problem in the wild frontiers of Alaska.

Electric and Hybrid cars are being introduced by the American and Japanese car manufacturers in United States for a better future.

But the almighty dollar is still the problem.

Perhaps Daniel Dingle can help us solve some problem.

Black Sand Beach Of Davao

(The beach is not Davao and the sand is much darker)

Who said Boracay island is great?

There are still great beaches in the Philippines that are untouch by heavy tourism,scams and pedophilia.

The best Beach might be Cebu and a bangka ride to Bohol's picturesque chocolate hills but not really.
The Black Beaches of Davao will be one of a kind to visit.

The Facts About The .45 Caliber Why It Was Invented

I was watching the history channel last night and I learned something
about my beloved people the Moro (Moors).
The .45 Caliber was invented to stop the battle harden and very strong Filipino Muslim from
attacking the U.S. Army during the Filipino-American war.
I don't believe they ever used drugs to go to war but their natural strength and determination
to stop foreigners from invading Mindanao.

In response to problems encountered by American units fighting Moro guerrillas during the Philippine-American War, the then-standard .38 Long Colt revolver was found to be unsuitable for the rigors of jungle warfare, particularly in terms of stopping power, as the Moros had very high battle morale and frequently used drugs to inhibit the sensation of pain.
The U.S. Army briefly reverted to using the M1873 single-action revolver in .45 Colt caliber, which had been standard during the last decades of the 19th century; the slower, heavier bullet was found to be more effective against charging tribesmen. The problems with the .38 Long Colt led to the Army shipping new single action .45 Colt revolvers to the Philippines in 1902. It also prompted the then-Chief of Ordnance, General William Crozier, to authorize further testing for a new service pistol.

Following the 1904 Thompson-LaGarde pistol round effectiveness tests, Colonel John T. Thompson stated that the new pistol "should not be of less than .45 caliber" and would preferably be semi-automatic in operation.

VST And Company Circa 70's

Bits and Pieces with John and DJ.
(Richie the horsey and the Soto brothers were still starting their career)
My Mom (wearing a brown skirt) was promoting the band VST and Company
in Cebu City. She was promoting them on a noon time show on channel 9.I was proud of my mom because she worked so hard to give me a good life but the consequences was that I only see her 2 to 3 times a month.
she was always travelling while I went to school in C.I.C.
(on the pic I'm the kid).
The funny part that the band was a fake. They couldn't even sing a note.
One of the Soto brothers had to fly all the away from Manila on the night of the concert but with tragedies struck in one night with fake tickets and a band that couldn't sing.
It was time for my mom to retire from being promoter and I was happy.

My Classmates in Kindergarden 1976 ICC Davao City

Immaculate Conception College in Davao City.
This class was unforgettable.
Our teacher was of course a typical catholic sister.
We call Nuns has Sisters in the Philippines but in the United Stated it's the other way around.
Because all of them are still pure in heart and devoted their lives to the Roman Catholic church and never been married or touch.
I was educated Roman Catholic but my fate is open to other fate and I hope she understand.

July 4th, 1946 - Philippine Independence

Philippine independence finally came on July 4, 1946, with the signing of the Treaty of Manila between the governments of the United States and the Philippines. The treaty provided for the recognition of the independence of the Republic of the Philippines and the relinquishment of American sovereignty over the Philippine Islands.From 1946 to 1961, Independence Day was observed on July 4, but President Diosdado Macapagal, upon the advice of historians, reverted to the June 12 date, which up to that time had been observed as Flag Day.

Benefits For Filipino World War 2 Veteran

During World War II, over 200,000 Filipinos fought in defense of the United States against the Japanese in the Pacific theater of military operations, where more than half died.

As a commonwealth of the United States before and during the war, Filipinos were legally American nationals. With American nationality, Filipinos were promised all the benefits afforded to those serving in the armed forces of the United States. In 1946, Congress passed the Rescission Act (38 U.S.C. § 107) which stripped Filipinos of the benefits they were promised. Of the 66 countries allied with the United States during the war, only Filipinos were denied military benefits.

Since the passage of the Rescission Act, many Filipino veterans have traveled to the United States to lobby Congress for the benefits promised to them for their service and sacrifice. Over 30,000 of such veterans live in the United States today, with most being United States citizens. Sociologists introduced the phrase "Second Class Veterans" to describe the plight of these Filipino Americans. Since 1993, numerous bills were introduced in Congress to return the benefits taken away from these veterans. However, the bills died in committee, so the struggle continues today.
