‘Where there is no corruption, there will be no poverty.’ – President Noynoy Aquino, #WEF Manila 2014

Quotable quotes from Philippine President Noynoy Aquino addressing the World Economic Forum delegates in Manila yesterday…

* * *

“Where there is no corruption, there will be no poverty.”

 * * *

“The Philippines reworked the formula for success in business – from one that required connections with influential people, to one that gives value to hard work and innovation above all else.”

 * * *

“We have to invest in our greatest asset – the Filipino people.”

 * * *

“Our people are the be all and end all, and we are not content with waiting for the benefits of growth to just trickle down the social pyramid.”

 * * *

“We pursued all those who committed wrongdoing – regardless of their power or influence.”

 * * *

“We have always said that good governance is good economics, and the results of our reforms on the economic end are proving us right.”

 * * *

“The power behind all our efforts – whether in pursuing inclusive economic growth, improving competitiveness, food security or disaster risk management – comes not from any individual, but from the people.”

 * * *

“Inclusive growth is not just a mantra for us; it is the yardstick by which we measure any government undertaking.”

 * * *

“It has been the patriotism, the willpower and the wisdom of the Filipino people that has rescued our country from its darkest moments.”

 * * *

“Our country has the social and economic momentum to go from success to success, and truly make waves throughout our archipelago, in the international community, and in the vast, immeasurable ocean of history.”

 * * *

Ironic that all of what he said at the WEF is easily proven as lies.
He talks as if he has done something in the past 4 years yet corruption has gotten WORSE under his rule. His followers can’t even explain why.

Any minute now, those paid hacks of the malacañang group will be attacking this article again but the jokes on them since their yellow propaganda is still useless and is easily destroyed.

Do you ever post without the same predictable theme about malacanang trolls?

Johnny Derp

Those malacanang trolls are predictable at attacking GRP and I believe you must be new here, wannabe-troll.

If I were you, I wouldn’t start a fight with us GRP regulars.

An observation followed by a threat. Perhaps a poll would sort this?

Couple those quotes with imagining that smirk on his face, then you end up with:

intended for all the filipino people laughing his ass off all the way to the bank (probably swiss or other offshore)

That’s the “L” sign for y’all.

Think he meant
When there is no idiocracy, there will be no poverty.

Power cuts galore nationwide the innovative businessman turns to candles.

We have to keep sending Filipino workers abroad as we have no policies to create jobs at home.

Food security importing 1 million tonnes of rice.
Disaster Risk Management = political elite running the country turning everything into a disaster.

You should watch the movie Idiocracy. It is the perfect spoof of the Philippines and its government.

“We have to invest in our greatest asset – the Filipino people.” So the plan is to keep sending Filipinos abroad to work. I bet no other country have this as a plan. why?, because it’s so stupid!

I’d like to hear the usual Aquino loyalists like Proud Pinoy et. al to raise their lame, defensive comebacks against us.

BS Aquino has proven that selling BS is the best way to gain and maintain popularity, political tenure, and tons of money from tax payers in the Philippines.

Trolls are needed for damage control, lest we be enlightened and made aware of the “matrix” which feeds the delusions of the gullible masses.

It’s comedy hour and the comedian is not funny.

What a bunch of empty, meaningless crap.

Must be nice being Noynoy Aquino. Never accountable to his past of taking up space as trapos are known to do. Live off the family name , no need to blaze your own trail. Do not be accountable to your present. Declare you are going on the straight and narrow yet circumvent all the rules and procedures and bribe to get what you want. Since your past and present mean so little the future’s not ours to see, que sera sera.

This reminds me of Bam Aquino – just doing selfies all the time and riding on the Aquino name but not a true Aquino at all.

Let’s see: Ballsey, Cory, Kris, Noynoy . is there clout and street cred in being a true Aquino?

“Where there is no corruption, there will be no poverty” Ipso facto
“Where poverty exists and is growing, then corruption must be real and thriving” OR “Prosecuting 7 year old corruption cases will reduce the level of poverty retroactively(?)” OR “If US$2 per day is poverty,and US$3 per day is prosperity, does taking a US$1 per day less in kick backs make you Honest?” BS needs new speech writers.

“The Philippines reworked the formula for success in business – from one that required connections with influential people, to one that gives value to hard work and innovation above all else.”

And this President’s cabinet? Yeah, more weed please.

Felipe

The only ones who obviously have been doing “hard work” in his administration are the propaganda group, but that’s pretty much it.

I wanna see how far that yardstick goes when I shove it up BS ass. (Y)

Aquino is trying to formulate a new economic theory …it is axiomatic…”if there is no corruption, there will be no poverty…” So, the widespread poverty in our country grows day by day, in direct proportion to the corruption (plundering) of Aquino and his cahoots…how true is it… Most of our people with brains have already left the country…there is nothing to invest on people…except those who are left here, who are mostly YellowTards…for our foreign readers…Yellowtards are rabid followers of Aquino, who are systematically brainwashed, giving everybody an “L” sign salute; wearing Yellow Shirts; and worshiping Ninoy Aquino, Jr., as… Read more »

I can’t stop laughing as I read the comments by politically-correct Pinoys on these quotes from Aquino’s speech.

Holy shit, whatta bag of gas…..FARTING in an elevator speech that must have been. OMG, was there any…. like after ‘We were in pursuit of ALL wrong-doers’…….”BUT WE DIDN’T CATCH ANY OF THEM.” or OR ‘Our people are the be all and end all.We are not content to wait for the benefits to just trickle down…’………..”So we go out on the street corners of every major city and beg, and sell our beautiful daughters ass’s to the strip joints in Angeles city so we can eat,u kno?Coz if we waited for the trickle down,we’d die of starvation!”. any of that?… Read more »

The plain and simple truth is, “If there were no Aquinos in the Philippines, this country would have been first world already.”

Johnny Saint
Guest

The sentiment is to be expected. The reasoning and conclusion, however, are overly simplistic. And altogether unprovable.

Filipinos made the same impetuous leap in logic that culminated in the first EDSA revolution and the installation of the Aquino family to begin with.

Thanks for the link.

Let’s see now how the yellow minions react to these….

Johnny Saint
Guest

They’ll react in typical fashion. Turn things on their ear and claim that Rigoberto Tiglao is trying to hijack Aquino’s accomplishments because he’s bitter over his former boss’s incarceration.

domo

Aand the noytards, hepatards and yellow nazi zombies are now hostile to Tiglao. They’re nothing but mindless rabid baboons.

Economic miracle with unemployment and poverty getting worse. Miracle is that Noynoy hasn’t been scalped yet for being a clueless moron. Where is Aldo Raine when you need him?

I’m sorry. Except for Christoph Waltz, I really hated that movie.
