Ask yourself first

One of the few times the CBCP and I agree:

From Philippine Star, written by Dennis Carcamo:
The government should also apologize to the numerous overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) for the ridicule they have been receiving from other countries, the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) said today.

Fr. Edwin Corros, executive secretary of CBCP-Episcopal Commission on Migrant and Itinerant People, said government officials should explain why they are still deploying hundreds of thousands of Filipinos to other countries for work.

"Siguro mag apologize ang government sa bayan dahil patuloy silang nagpapadala ng mga OFW sa ibat-ibang panig ng mundo (The government should apologize to the nation for continuing to send Filipinos abroad)," Corros said in an interview with the Church-run Radio Veritas.

It's funny how politicians are oh so quick to fire their guns at Chip; perhaps, they should ask themselves: "What have I done for Filipinos so they won't be forced to find work elsewhere but the Philippines?"
