The Philippines is one of the top importers of rice in the world. Rice is a politically sensitive commodity in this country. It is not surprising that reports of a rice shortage have energized political debate and public concern regarding the economic policies of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
If the global supply of rice is dwindling, what is being done to increase local production? In the first place, why is the Philippines, which is predominantly an agricultural nation, importing rice from other countries?

***I used to be Pro-Gloria. But how can anyone feel safer with Arroyo in the Malacañang Palace when she is directly making the people suffer with such crisis?
How can anyone--ANYONE--imagine that Arroyo is going to bring peace, happiness, and contentment to any corner of this far-reaching and diverse planet? That is, any part that doesn't have massive quantities of rice for plunder.
I hope she chokes on a dried piece of lettuce, that subnormal intelligence cheap cheating lazy greedy dwarf slime wad.
Most of all, I can't believe how little in common I have with the majority of the country. I have never felt less "Filipino".
Philippines, love it or leave it? Buddy, if you're "it...."
I HATE TO SEE PEOPLE PAYING FOR OTHER PEOPLE'S IGNORANCE AND BIGOTRY. I HATE BEING AFRAID BECAUSE SOMEONE DIDN'T READ THE NEWSPAPER AND SAW THE PRESIDENT TOUR IN SOME OTHER COUNTRIES OR HER HUSBAND IN SOME WHITE JACKET ON THE HEADLINES.
i feel like I'm on a sinking ship of fools.
Dammit. I hate dumb people and i hate mean people and i hate racist people and i hate god freaks.
i hate that woman now. I hate her face, always grinning unctuous face.
Get ready for more crisis.
