  1. can I pay in cash or deposit thru your bank account, if its okey please notify me thru email, I’d like to order one, size-large.

  2. Nice to see your shirts are proudly designed AND made in Australia, that sure goes a long way in giving credibility to all of your “Proudly Filipino” rhetoric.. ah only in the Philippines

    1. In fact he is not writing about all that “proudly Filipino ‘rhetoric in his articles. Quite the opposite.. A bit of respect if your here reading his posts, after all he does this writing/blogging quite well. You don’t need to agree on most of his articles but be civil and respectful enough.

      1. “You don’t need to agree on most of his articles but be civil and respectful enough. ”

        The above quote was dated 2012…

        From what I read in GRP and how some of the bloggers here reply to comments that do not agree to their collective position, the above quote should be can be applicable to the GRP team.

  3. Thats because a lot of these proud blowhards that run these sites don’t live in the country they write about most of the time. What are THEY doing to change the Philippines? Not living there seems to be their choice, or just writing about but not really DOING anything? Made in Australia….typical.

    1. So true. I have the same observations actually, not only with this site but with a host of other “proud blowhard” sites. It’s actually irritatingly amusing.

      They moralize so much without even understanding nor living what they preach. It’s hypocrisy, not the classy type but the trashy kind. No redeeming factor at all except that we could laugh about it.

  4. It’s all about the free market. We go where the best provider is, all of us.. price and quality. If the owner of this site could deliver a better, faster product direct from the Philippines I’m sure he would. But if the best provider is in Australia, I see no contradiction. I love the US, but living in the PH myself, I’ll buy the local brand over the imported US stuff. Doesn’t mean I don’t love my country. It’s just the free market, that’s all it is.

    1. Some people however don’t believe in the temporary illusion of the so-called “free market”. Let’s get real, and I mean, not like the “get real” of this site, but “real” as in “the current socio-economic-political observable and verifiable situation”– there is no free market but a series of political and banking machinations of productions with the illusion of free choice (both for producers and consumers), which justified an economy of vicious competition and inequality, massive slavery (via slavery wage rates and employment conditions) and massive poverty for nearly 3/4ths of the world’s total population, whcih left us with an ideological legacy that says the corporate economy, in which wealth concentrates in the hands of a few, produces the best for humanity.

      I’m sorry to dash your free market bubble but genuine free markets are not possible under conditions of private ownership over productive property because the class differences and inequalities in income and power that ensue from this arrangement enable interests of the dominant class to skew the market to their favor, either in the form of monopoly and market power, or by utilizing their wealth and resources to pass government regulations and policies that benefit their specific business interests. It is an illusion we should all outgrow so we see things with proper perspectives.

      Now tell me, is that FREE? Is that what Laisez Faire is all about? If it is, then it is a failure because it failed the “Free Market’s” true intention and goal, which is: freedom of choice, arrival of true of values for goods and services, better quality of goods and services through healthy competition and ultimately the maximum happiness and benefit for mankind with regards to the goods and services they are afforded.

      Was that met? If not, then whatever it is we have now, is obviously not what the Free Market economics /market style proponents envisioned or desired.

      1. Sounds like you’re confusing the word ‘free’ with the word ‘fair’. Everything you noted has to do with an idea of a level playing field. Well, life has never been fair. Only the strongest survive in business. What is free is the decision of the consumer to decide where they will spend their money.

        Take this issue for example; if you don’t want to buy products made in Australia.. you don’t have to. You are completely free to make that choice. Now, if you want to dissect whether or freedom of choice is an illusion because some smaller company isn’t reaching you the way a larger one does.. that’s a whole other fish to fry. But what remains is that people are free to spend as they choose, and that is what either supports a good business or sees to it that a business without demand fails.

  5. Can you come up with another “positive action” logo to your current “juan tamad” logo? Logos that show HOW WE SHOULD GET REAL. I’d buy your shirts if they had a bit of POSITIVE vibes in it. Coz POSITIVITY is one of the important things we need in this country. I’m a businessman and my faith in the Filipinos has what kept me here in our country. Thanks.

  6. This is the site that says how Filipinos behave badly. But, trying to sell on overpriced merchandise. Tsk tsk tsk!

  7. As someone who has spent several weeks in the PI (certainly no expert) I can, however, say that it is very frustrating to me that the PI does not take advantage of the natural resources it has: trees, for example. The PI, with a carefully planned program, could be a major supplier of lumber, to much of the world. Think of the jobs that would be created. Now, before the “greenies” get angry, let me tell you that California is extremely protective of its redwood trees. However, a family owns a large redwood forest, in Northern CA, and they carefully harvest a certain percentage of redwood each year and then replant new trees. They have done this for more than 100 years. Also, why, in this virtual paradise of vegetation, does the PI import the overwhelming amount of its milk from New Zealand? It makes no sense. I know dairy farmers, near CDO and they are frustrated with the little support they receive from the government. Again, think of the jobs that would be created and would pull the poorest out of the slums and give them a living wage.
