" When I'm eating,that's all I think about / If I'm on the march, I just concentrate on marching / If I have to fight,it will be just as good a day to die as any other / If you can concentrate always on the present,you'll be a happy man " - the Camel Driver
hey GILBS, sorry man, maybe terrorist is too strong a word. i just meant i think it's odd that some people would deliberately not help, drag their feet or outright sabotage the success of filipinos and the philippines because it would reflect positively on the government they don't agree with.
i don't think people who put their money on morales are unpatriotic, only those who do because they don't want manny's success to be used by the government. it's so beside the point kasi isn't it. and so unfair for manny.
Thanks whoopi. However, I don't believe there are 'unfair' reasons to bet on one or the other. If there are, then betting for Manny just because he's a kababayan is also unfair--it looks at a boxer's race and nationality, and not his skill. This is best explained by our other members who asked the question: "Then what if they're both Filipinos?"
But as it stands, public figures are 'fair game' to (you guessed it) the public. Some people probably bet on Pacquiao simply because they hate Morales' face. And they (boxers) are the ones who get to take home x00,000 of $$$, win or lose.
