The Pentagon Was Shocked At What President Trump Told President Duterte

U.S. President Donald Trump called Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on April 29, 2017 and their conversation revolved around the problem with North Korea and with Kim Jong Un's nuclear ambition.

Pentagon officials however are in shock after a transcript of their conversation was released on May 23, 2017. Pentagon officials are very careful about discussing the movement of their submarines as is it their military's belief that their stealth is the key to their mission.

In their conversation, President Trump told President Duterte that the U.S. has two nuclear submarines in the area. Trump said: "We have two submarines -- the best in the world -- we have two nuclear submarines -- no that we want to use them at all."

They also talked about China and how China is the key to keeping North Korea in check. Duterte said he will call China's President Xi Jinping. Duterte told Trump: "I will try to make a call to President Xi Jinping and I will try to tell him if …

BIR's Disgusting Ad Against Doctors

The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) in its effort to increase tax collection puts out ads and press release identifying sectors of society who they believe are not paying proper taxes. They do this by shaming people and business through these ads.

On their latest ad, they targeted doctors by showing them as burdens to society for not paying their share of taxes. The image is a doctor making over a million Pesos being carried on the shoulder of a lowly teacher making much less but paying full tax.

BIR Ad against Doctors

Based on this ad, the BIR is saying that the doctors and other professionals are the burden to society because they don't pay their taxes.

Apparently, the hundreds and thousands of pesos they spent learning their profession and countless hours of study and upgrading they do every year to save and improve people's lives are worth nothing.

Maybe there is a reason people don't like paying their taxes, because all they see is endless traffic, bad road, bad government and the only people getting rich are the politicians.

Based on this ad, it looks like politicians who sing and dance on stage to cuddle votes and steal the people's money to build their castles are the pious ones. Not even Janet Napoles, the Euro Generals and other people who have been found to have stolen billions of pesos of public money were even considered to be the reason for the lack of funds of the government.

The doctors of course did not take this sitting down, they came out with their own ad which they circulated on social networks.

Ask for Respect BIR

The BIR ad clearly shows how an idiotic government tries to fool the poor by showing that the reason they are still poor and wallowing in misery is because of the middle class who don't pay their taxes.

This ad is dangerous because it creates class warfare pitting the poor against the diminishing middle class. While the upper class, oligarchs and politicians are laughing all the way to their mansions.
