Politician's Survival Guide Against the Threat of SALN and Bank Deposit Disclosures


A thief doesn't want to be caught.
I will get to the point quickly. This is to help corrupt politicians, bureaucrats, ordinary government employees, who are anxious where to keep their loots now that they know they would be next after the Supreme Court Chief Justice was kick-out from his office and was denied all of his retirement benefits.

Here is are the two things you need to know first. The difference of STEALING and HIDING it. Stealing is the act of stealing. Hiding is the act of.....of course. These two have a light-year difference. Just like making lies. It is alright to lie.Getting caught is a different story.

So, it must be clear that our main concern therefore is how to be really good at NOT BEING CAUGHT. This was the problem of the ex-Chief Justice. After he excelled in stealing (alleged), he got caught because he lacks IQ where and how to hide those loots. He wasn't caught while stealing. He was caught after he did it. As a damning consequence, he got kicked-out from office by his fellow public officials who I assume also have their own hideous stories of plunder and lies.

To excel at not being caught is to excel in keeping your loots. Just put in mind the following general novice rules.

1. Never ever feel you are untouchable. The ex-Chief Justice was delusional in thinking the time for payback will never come. He was too relaxed to stash mind-boggling amounts of money (relative to his monthly salary) in bank accounts. Learn from this and avoid being complacent about your current status. Tides change.

2. Don't believe bank secrecy laws are absolute. Swiss banking system was once impenetrable. Philippines' compared to Switzerland's is a joke. So don't believe bank secrecy laws here will save your ass when time comes specially when the Philippine anti-money laundering body can now just sneak to your accounts with so much ease.

3. It is risky to use your own name.  Future asset acquisitions must be put under low-profile names preferably 2nd degree relatives, lovers, or  mistresses. Take note of course that those persons must not be government employees.

In every illegal transaction use proxy. This is no-brainer as those above.

Having in mind those simple general rules, what is next would be suggestions where to keep your easy-earned stolen monies.

1. Off-shore banks. Probably the safest . And can be further enhanced using other low-profile names scattered in various locations.

2. Set-up Charitable Foundations/Churches. This strategy is best appropriate with individuals who plans to evade taxes. But this too can be found helpful for politicians or big time bureaucrats to keep their monies intact plus they could generate lots of profits off donations and grants, tax-free. BIR agents has no mandate to stick their noses in charities and churches. your money is safe behind altars and charities.

3. Keep cash somewhere else. En-cash all electronic cash. Have trusted men to maintain secret warehouses to keep the physical cash much like a secretive amphetamine lab. Yes, it generates no profit as in banks. But hey, don't be too greedy. Interests are peanuts if you can keep your illegal activity in perpetuity.

Use other names. This must be a strict discipline specially on assets bought off monies from bribes and kickbacks.

Senator Chiz Escudero and Senator Jinggoy Estrada proposed bills to strengthen SALN and bypass Foreign Currency Deposit Act supposedly to deter would-be crooks. These two gentlemen might not be aware of the glaring difference of stealing and hiding. Or if they do, they are toying on people's intelligence.

Having the rules (novice rules) I mentioned above, any law would be immaterial. Any SALN would be irrelevant. Any mandate for disclosure would be mockery. Remain as happy thieves folks. Just never ever get caught. If that happens, that would be a whole different story.

I wonder what kind of laws and repeals our intelligent lawmakers would come-up with next time.

Depopulation: A Way to Save the Planet?


Mainstream people say over-population, threatens the environment. But in a manner they intended not to be clear to the public except to say resources would be depleted soon and we need to act about it or else. Is that all? 
I have something different in mind. And it is easy to see what they really want. For every thesis, there is anti-thesis. Their thesis: OVERPOPULATION. And the only precise concept left as an effective counter to it is the word DEPOPULATION. Under-population may come just as good but not as ink-saver. So they stick with the former term only with an agreement not to be vulgar at using this term. Al Gore was very cautious not to include this term in his book in a manner counterproductive to the mainstream campaign to stem population. Using the word depopulate sound so offensive to the very party depopulation is intended for - majority of the global population, which includes you specially if you're an Asian or brown, or worse, both. 
Now, what they would use in place of the word depopulate? Easy to snipe. The hard-to-miss "SAVE THE PLANET" mantra. And along with it comes sublime messages to pull you in with your own help no-less, with your own self-overdose of self-guilt that you are not a good son or daughter of Mother Earth if you don't agree with them. That even includes going along with the new breed of CO2-hating individuals.

Another is the worthwhile Family Planning which I previously think as truly humane approach until I found out Government will pass a law for more subsidies and give business to select contractors in exchange of higher taxes to the people and more annual government deficit budget for politicians to feast on.

Depopulation is really the antidote of this pesky overpopulation. Only that they would not tell it that way. That is what they planned. Of course they wouldn't tell you that straight face because by then you would react to it heavily and will cause others to wake-up. And you wouldn't expect them to do it right away. They are not that stupid. They would do it little by little you can't notice it until someone tells you just what I do now.
Slowly but surely they would do it in every way I could imagine.  Perhaps, they will introduce hybrid-compound in bottled drinks or off-commercial shelves foods to target genes for men to grow a penis that is extra-short incapable of shooting semen in a sufficient trajectory in the uterus (just my wild thought) and will thus fail to fertilize an egg every time.

Well, my ass' hole is not itching against what they really want. And in fact I might have contributed a lot to the depopulation campaign if only they have been honest what they really want from the beginning. But hell, they think all people are stupid (of course majority are). I don't belong.
However, I don't want to end this short trash talk with a negative note. Hopeless or hopeful as it could be, I dream for us to live together with genuine love with each other. Genuine love needs no government, much less government laws and more taxes. Only that at this moment WE REALLY DON'T KNOW WHO WE ARE.
