End of Arithmetic lesson.
Fr. Ed is to be congratulated for setting a high benchmark for collection from quarrying operations against which his predecessors have a moral obligation to explain why their collections were so low, and against which future governors will be judged by the people of Pampanga. Volcanic ash, by the way, is a superior building material. Many of the buildings, aqueducts & monuments of the Roman Empire that have survived for almost 2,000 years are known to have been built w/ volcanic ash, quarried from the environs of Mount Vesuvius after it erupted in 79 AD. We don't expect Fr.Ed's moral victory in Pampanga to be remembered for the next 2,000yrs. We would be happy with five, ten or 20 years, enough, we hope, to spawn a moral-revolution- by- example to save the Filipinos from their worst enemies - themselves.

Why Project Smile?
bastards we called heroes told us all bullshits… Yes, we won the revolution
can we really just eradicate and stop corruption in our country? The answer is
no!!!… No matter what we do…. stage a revolution or people power protest ,
we are still going to get the same bastards who took our country to the
ground…from Aguinaldo, Quezon, Ramon Magsaysay, the killer and the biggest
thief in the world Ferdinand E. Marcos and his wife Imelda, Cory Aquino, Joseph
Estrada, Gloria Arroyo, and those I cannot remember. Imagine our country in the
21st century full of very educated and intellectual people still
begging for food from Uncle Sam and those developed countries around the world?
What a pity!
project SMILE would help us think of what we really have to do to change
the system bit by bit not for our children anymore but for our grandchildren for
it will take some time to straighten the mistakes that those bastards started
since the time we called ourselves Filipinos. Even our hero Jose Rizal, thought
he was different until he got into Spain, to find out that after all he is still
considered one of us… an “Indio’, from del islas las Filipinas, and
that’s a lot better than name attributed to us…Before that we were called
Indios del islas del ladrones
(thieves). The Filipino name was born after Rizal came back from
are ethnically divided people….with dual personality, superior complex
on our own and inferior to the whites. I am sure lots of you would shout to the
top of your lungs “NO – NO - NO
- NO”, and say, “ am
different”… that’s exactly what’s wrong with us, which happened to Jose
Rizal, before Europe. We are all the same Indios (not idiots) from
whenever you see those Indios where you are... “Smile”, because in a matter
of time majority of us could work together for a common goal of making ourselves
great again, proud that we came from the land where the Great Malayan was born,
Jose Rizal, our very own hero for without him there’s no way of knowing who we
can we do and how can we help our people in need, that's exactly the reason why
we got this website on line. So, we need everybody's participation, after all,
we are all Malayans... Part of the proceeds in this venture will be donated to
NGOs here, overseas and back home. Just watch us.... we are in the position to
make the difference because it's been more than thirty years that the original
article 'Philippines My Philippines" was born, due to the imposition of a
dictatorial regime, by a corrupt and murderous politician named Ferdinand E.
Marcos, who never paid for the crime he committed against us... the Filipino.
