A Call for Reason and Respect for Law


The following text is the official statement of the League of Cities of the Philippines on the pending 12 cityhood bills currenlty being deliberated by the Senate. This was also published on the Philippine Daily Inquirer on January 31, 2007


The League of Cities of the Philippines is expressing its vehement objections to the purported move by the Senate to pass the 12 city hood bills of municipalities which did not meet the requirements provided for in the Local Government Code of 1991 as amended by Republic Act 9009.

Republic Act 9009, which took effect on June 30, 2001, increased the income requirement for the conversion of municipalities to cities. By increasing the income requirement from P20 million to P100 million locally-generated income based on CY 2000 constant prices, the authors of what was then Senate Bill No. 2157 and which is now RA 9009, have set the appropriate fiscal benchmark by which to determine the readiness, viability, and preparedness of a municipality to take on the roles, functions and responsibilities of a city.

The League of Cities of the Philippines would like to profess that we feel neither abhorrence nor rejection over any initiative on the part of a municipality to be converted into a city. However, what we strongly object to is the conversion of a municipality that is not yet, by itself, prepared to become a city. Three municipalities (Taguig, Sta. Rosa, and Meycauayan) have been converted into cities after the passage of RA 9009. The League of Cities of the Philippines did not object to these considering that they satisfied the requirements of RA 9009.

Being a city is a serious business, a fact that was established in the Local Government Code of 1991 and further strengthened by the passage of RA 9009. To now turn a blind eye on the noble intentions of the law is tantamount to obliterating its letter and delivering a fatal blow to its spirit.

The passage of these 12 cityhood bills would create a very dangerous precedent. For whatever legal and rational reasons that have been long established through the brilliant minds of our legislators, there is nothing to prevent other municipalities from seeking the same “special treatment” by invoking the constitutional mandate of “equal protection of laws.”

If these municipalities cannot even manage to meet the basic income requirement, how can they be expected to perform and deliver as cities? There may even be other municipalities that are better qualified and the bills only discriminate against them. This only leads us to think that the vested interests of a few are the only ingredients needed to derail a sensible and rational Law.

We have been lobbying our position with the Senate for years, asking for neither special treatment nor exemption. What we ask is that the Law be upheld and respected. We would like to believe that our noble Senators feel the same.

The League of Cities of the Philippines together with all of its constituents are closely observing the conduct of Senate deliberations on this matter and pray that the honorable members of the Senate will individually act on the issue with reason and respect for the Law.

There are numerous things with the potential to influence us, and [url=http://www.hotdeal.vn/ho-chi-minh/]Thoi trang nam[/url] has lived-up to that capability. If you stop and think about it, you will likely notice a lot of the distinct ways it can wiggle its way into your life. As you learn more, you will quickly realize there is a great deal more than meets they eye.

Everybody has a sensible idea about what is doable with it. However, you and many others still would like to be more educated on this matter. So in that spirit, here are several important points concerning this subject you may appreciate knowing.

The relative complexities of men's and women's fashion

Both men and women can have the demands of keeping their clothing up-to-date and in time, yet men's style frequently feels a lot less complicated. Of course, for both genders, outfits and fashion options may be quite as delicate, and there are many'stylish'items which could rapidly become fashion faux pas - who is able to say they frequently see people running around in 70s flares? On the other side, men's style features a few choice goods that will exist eternally - which man is likely to look out of place with a good-quality, tailored suit, for instance? Choose basic pieces, colours and materials and you'll never seem out-of-place.

Why traditional men's style is eternal

The traditional man's suit has barely changed for over a hundred years. True, there are many options for different situations, however they are all common in their quest for a clever, sharp search for the wearer. The best part about traditional fashion for men is that it's efficiently elegant effectively neat. A well-groomed gentleman will almost always appear his sharpest in a well-tailored suit, and this can be a testament to the design of such clothing. A match will be worn to work in several jobs because of the professional look it offers to the wearer, instilling a feeling of respect and trust. Equally a suit will be used to several social functions, such as a tuxedo to a black-tie affair. This extraordinary flexibility that enables matches to be used in nearly all events is what gives it its eternal advantage and a lasting devote men's fashion.

Modern trends in traditional men's style

Whilst common men's styles can never be replaced, it's interesting to note that shifts in men's fashion trends have brought certain traditional clothes back in fashion. The acceptance of vintage clothing, particularly, has taken back a wide-variety of basic designs into men's closets, such as that of the dandy gentleman. 'Dandy'is a term used to refer to men who dress yourself in a classic yet elegant way, acting in a refined method and placing importance on appearance. This trend for almost'over-the-top'common style for men is apparent from events such as the'Tweed Run', wherever men and women of all ages dress in significantly Victorian-style outfit and take to the roads on vintage bikes - with lots of the men wearing remarkable mustaches! This is just one of many samples of research presenting the resurgence of such designs. Additionally, there are numerous sites on line which focus on gentlemanly style - such as'The Dandy Project'and'Dandyism'- as well as entire sites such as'The Art of Manliness'dedicated to providing articles on traditional men's fashion and grooming.

In conclusion, though specific areas of classic men's style can be brought back as new movements, the basic clothes that they derive from will never fall out of fashion.

"All it will take are a few basic garments. And there is one key - the simpler the better." - Cary Grant

Но конечно странно звучит что я не понял женскую психологию. Почему бы и нет. Судя по тому как отвечают (одинакого) девушки из этого форума ее не поймет только.... Ведь я более или менее понял психологию человека вообще. Так называемая же женская психология связана, по многим научным взглядам(фрейдисты) с проблемой пола, сексом, завистью женщины к активной роли мужчины в сексе, к обладанию им пенисом, стремлением захватить его в свою власть—отсюда стремление к долговременным отношениям. Связанным с нежеланием проявлять самостоятельность. К тому же как я уже говорил немалую роль отводят и внушенным элементам, например почему все женщины зациклины что в первый день знакомства нельзя спать с партнером, что это за внушенная глупость. А мужчинам было внушено, что наоборот нельзя отказать не одной женщине при возникновении у нее желания. Отсюда и мысль о том что мужчина находится во власти женщины пока его интересуют женщины. А мое стремление к сексу связано с проблемой дискриминацией мужчин по половому признаку, то есть с тем что женщинам изначально дано то что не дано мужчинам, то есть возможность быстро занятся сексом с любым понравившимся партнером , который не может ей в большинстве случаев отказать. Да да несправедливость почему мужчина должен зарабатывать деньги, и тогда он сразу привлекателен для многих партнерш, а женщине эо вовсе не обязательно? Почему женщина может работать проституткой если только она молодая и не слишком уродливая, а мужчина нет& Почему женщина может жить на содержании богатово мужика а мужчине подобное недоступно. Почему женщине позволено выглядеть слабой и не напрягаться, а мужчину за\ставляют постоянно из себя что то строить.

Почему нам по ТВ навязывают стереотипы взаимоотношений партнеров. Почему женщины не спят с мужчинами от того что ей никто не подходит, а мужчины потому что никто не дает?

Да и вообще на самом деле нет ни мужской не женской психзологии –как и ни о мужском ни женском способе мышления. На самом деле разлшичие лишь во способе и словарном содержании общения индивидуумов, то есть основное противоречие мужчин и женщин в том КАК выражают они свои мысли, когда прямо, а когда косвенно, образы же желаний НО ВНУТРЕННЕ схожи и у тех и у других
