One of my best friends is Filipino, a right-winger so hard core he makes most freepers sound like DU trolls, one which is a rarity.

The Philippines is one of the few Christian Asian countries out there. I think they're far more socially conservative than the U.S.

My sis-in-law is Flip’. They may be the most Christian country in Asia but they are also the most corrupt in the SE Asian archipelago. If you have money in Manila, you can get ANYTHING. I even have a Drivers license from the Philippines, no joke.

As with us, there is social rot in the cities. Especially Manila.

Corruption is another matter. It is almost everywhere. I guess it is left over from the Spanish, mostly, and went on steroids during the Marcos era — never diminished much after that. But there are good people trying to fight it.
