We are a third world country (okaaayyyyyy, to be politically correct, we are a developing country). I checked the NEDA website and as of December 1, 2005, the population is almost 76.5M, average income per family as of 2003 is less than P150K while expenditure is almost P125K, and almost 25% of families are within the poverty incidence (30.40% of population). Can we consider this country to be poor?

If a lot of people are suffering from poverty, then why oh why can at least one government agency (the red plate says it all!) afford to have a Black Lincoln Town Car, and worse find it cruising along Ortigas Avenue ON A SATURDAY?

This a first-hand account and I wish I had the camera to capture it. :(
