The present anomalies were already happening since the late !990s. Even former inmate actor Robin Padilla claims he saw shabu being ‘cooked’ inside Bilibid and admitted he carried a gun inside. And he was jailed for possession of guns! Instead of just possessing then, he could smuggle guns inside LOL
What kind of Prison Director doesn’t know what’s inside his prison? Franklin Bucayu should be fired without questions asap.
‘Padilla said he learned that the inmate was a drug user, and that methamphetamine hydrochloride or shabu, was not only available in prison, it was also being “cooked” there. A jail guard, he said, even asked him for his drug of choice.
‘The actor also shared that there were people who jogged with firearms, had jacuzzis in their cells, and said that he also carried a gun with him.
‘“’Pag sinarado na lahat at wala nang guwardiya sa loob, war ‘yun (Once everything is closed and there are no more guards inside, that’s war),” he said,
‘For Robin, the constant change in prison leadership is the reason why illegal activities inside the prison continues. He admitted that he became an informant of former Bureau of Corrections Director General Vicente Vinarao who wanted to eliminate illegal drugs from the prison…’
The ‘Christmas village’ of China
Your Holiday Decorations Likely Came From This Town in China
‘Our yuletide myth-making might like to imagine that Christmas is made by rosy-cheeked elves hammering away in a snow-bound log cabin somewhere in the Arctic Circle. But it’s not.

‘Christened “China’s Christmas village”, Yiwu is home to 600 factories that collectively churn out over 60% of all the world’s Christmas decorations and accessories, from glowing fibre-optic trees to felt Santa hats. The “elves” that staff these factories are mainly migrant labourers, working 12 hours a day for a maximum of £200 to £300 a month – and it turns out they’re not entirely sure what Christmas is…’
The Elf on the Shelf is preparing your child to live in a future police state, professor warns
‘…For others — like, say, digital technology professor Laura Pinto — the Elf on the Shelf is “a capillary form of power that normalizes the voluntary surrender of privacy, teaching young people to blindly accept panoptic surveillance and” [deep breath] “reify hegemonic power.”
‘The latter perspective is detailed in “Who’s the Boss,” a paper published by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, in which Pinto and co-author Selena Nemorin argue that the popular seasonal doll is preparing a generation of children to uncritically accept “increasingly intrusive (albeit whimsically packaged) modes of surveillance.”…’
