AM Radio sa Umaga

Alarming na pala talaga ang presyo ng isang decent hospital dito sa Pinas.

I am aware that healthcare and medicine prices are currently a hitch on the local social welfare concerns. Pero, naman! I didn't realize that it really is "THIS" huge a problem na pala. I mean, I grew up on a military clan. Halos libre lahat ng medical and dental affairs ko since birth... I was born on a military hospital, been operated on a military medical facility, checked by military dentists, and heck even circumcised by a soldier!

But a couple of days ago, my sis decided to stage her birth on a private hospital. Can't blame her though... a public hospital is still a public hospital, and don't be a hypocrite to disagree with me that it really is worrying to consult on one especially when it's the life of your children or a relative that is being dealt upon. Kaso nga nung lumabas yung bill from this private hospital, sooooobrang mahal. It's like buying a new car or renting a townhouse for a year. Kaso, NO CHOICE!

Which brings me to my point... why can't most of us have that confidence on publicly-funded clinics? I, alone, can produce a long list of reasons but one of the most upsetting items in it is the fact that our public hospitals are incapable to compete with the private ones. It may come to us as "normal" just because private medical bodies have the monetary strength to fund but I tell you, IT IS NOT THE WAY IT SHOULD BE. The government has the almighty power to recruit the best medical team and provide the most advanced of medical facilities in the country that will leave private hospitals cower in comparison. BUT sadly, our government (that our heroes have sacrificed their lives to create) have more important matters to attend to: "pano pababanguhin sa publiko ang pangalan ng diyos nilang pandak", "pano nila pipilipitin ang Konstitusyon para tumagal pa silang panginoon", "pano sila ngingiti sa pictorial nila with Pacquiao", "pano sila mang-uumit sa taxes na binabayaran ni Obi para pang-tuition ni Bunso sa POVEDA o ng pang-patangos ng ilong ni Esmi kay Doc Calayan".

Tumataas ang singil sa mga private clinics dahil dekalidad naman ang serbisyo nila. Pumapangit ang serbisyo ng public clinics dahil kulang sila sa pondo. Ikaw, saan ka magsasalalay ng buhay mo?

Kabilang ka sa maswerteng minoridad kung may choice ka ba talaga sa tanong na yan. KUNG kakayanin ng bulsa mong mamili, congrats!

di na mababago ang sistema!
sa trahedyang nagaganap kahapon (Sabado), lalo lang nakita kung gaano na kahirap ang buhay nating mga Filipino.
Lahat nagbabakasakaling mabiyayaan ng grasya galing sa isang TV show.
nakakalungkot na ang mga kabayan ay nawalan na ng pag-asa na matulungan pa sila ng gobyerno!

ka neng: yeah. lahat ng nangyayaring kapabayaan dito sa Pinas will all point down to the fact that it does not have a politically safe system anymore. kung hihimayin ng mabuti kung bakit andun yung mga taong yun e mararating din ang conclusion na kailangan na nilang umasa sa pribadong sektor para magkapera o magkamit man lang ng konting ginhawa dahil masakit man isipin, ang gobyernong dapat nilang asahan sa kanilang pangangailangan ay hindi sapat ang nagagawa (kung hindi man totally walang magawa). ganyan talaga ang buhay. =)
