Politics during the Typhoon Onyok floods

Victims of disasters will ask and receive help from anyone.  And politicians, presumably out to get votes, will make a display of giving relief goods and giving comfort to victims.

It happens every year.

What would be different is if by next year, we can find the next President implementing specific solutions that would prevent or mitigate the disasters we experience year in and year out.

In the meantime, I think it is much more important that people get clothes, they get food, and they get help rebuilding what was lost.  There are thousands of Filipinos, YOUR COUNTRYMEN, who are suffering and who may still be wading in flood water.

In criticizing the politicians who may or may have not labeled disaster relief goods with their names, some bloggers ought to consider if they had done anything even to help.
