UBER PH Advocacy

2017 ADVOCACY: require all taxi to level-up with Grab and Uber in online system, credit card payment capability, security features, feedback mechanism, quality standard of cars. Ang taxi dapat mag level-up; ayaw natin na hilain ng gobyerno pababa ang kalidad ng Uber at Grab.

Para sa seguridad ng driver at kalinisan ng car, dapat pwede mag refuse magsakay ng pumaparang pasaherong kadudaduda o mabaho o lasing ang itsura, lalo na pag walang credit card.

Ang LTFRB din ay dapat mag level-up sa efficiency management system capability ng Uber at Grab in terms of enforcement of quality control.

Dapat may special budget ang gobyerno para sa agarang pag patch ng mga lubak sa kalye. Dapat walang lubak na tatagal ng 24 hours.

Ang job classification ng public transport Driver ay both Skilled and Professional. Ang income nyan ay dapat lang na mataas na kayang makapag-amortize ng kotse at bahay na may garahe. Ganito dapat ang mentality pag mag formulate ng standard fare ang gobyerno.

Pinakialaman ng gobyerno ang Uber at Grab kaya pumangit tuloy.


Uber does not serve the general public, only its members. Hindi nagsasakay ng pumaparang publiko ang Uber, kasi bawal. Our advocacy, therefore, should be focused on the point that Uber should not be covered by LTFRB regulations.

Ang pagbabawal ng Uber na magsakay ng pumapara ay hindi dahil ipinagbawal ng LTFRB, kundi ipinagbawal eto ng internal business policy ng Uber, para protektahan ang profit ng Uber business.

RE UBER. Kayong mga Taxi Drivers and Operators, huwag kayong mainggit sa Uber kasi kayo ang first preference ng passengers kung nandyan kayo nakikita para parahin dahil mas mura rate nyo. Ang Uber ay para sa mga passengers na nahahassle pumara, nahahassle makipagagawan ng taxi, nahahassle makipagnegotiation sa taxi na nagongontrata, sila yung mga credit card payer, gusto ng may epektibong evaluation feedback, at willing naman sila magbayad ng mas mahal kesa sa taxi.

Kayo naman UberPH, hindi maganda yung ginawa nyo na i-allow ang cash paying ng mga passengers because it reduces the security of the drivers. Dapat maintain lang na exclusive for elite (credit card holders) lang ang Uber para hindi mag overlap ang passengers ng Uber at regular taxi.

Hindi yayaman ang nagUUber kasi mataas ang business expenses due to government. Your Income as owner of car, minus 30% annual Income Tax to BIR, 3% monthly Percentage Tax to BIR, annual Mayor's Business Permit and local Tax, annual Barangay Clearance, annual Insurance for four passenger seats.

Sa maintenance naman ng kotse, kung fulltime kang nagUUber, expect mo daily car wash, daily full tank; monthly change oil, monthly aircon general cleaning, monthly brake pad change; and yearly timing belt change, yearly tire set change, yearly hilamos paint and topcoat.

Dapat nga hindi na saklaw ng LTFRB ang Uber kasi "exclusive" ang Uber, self-help organization ang Uber, meaning ang passengers ng Uber ay yung members lang ng Uber, hindi ang general public. Eto yung point-of-view na dapat natin dalhin sa public policy forum, sa Congress at Senado kung kinakailangan.

Isipin nyo na ang Uber ay alternative sa taxi sa point of view ng passengers, and also an alternative choice of livelihood for drivers/operators. Huwag nyo sirain ang alternative option nating lahat. (John Odonnell Remollo Petalcorin)

ONE OPPOSITION explained in video


Click here to watch the MNLF LECTURE #21 ONE OPPOSITION Explained in Youtube video.

That's my job as consolidator, and making this short video is one step. Lahat tayo sa opposition, share lang natin ang video na eto at viral proportion. We put individual reasons aside, we consolidate as one opposition, because our objective is to defeat the Aquinos.

QUESTION: Paano yung ibang BDP na mahirap kumbinsihin na maki-isa sa OneOpposition?

ANSWER: Ang iConsolidate natin ay yung opposition-minded lang. Yung mga fanatic na individualistic na hindi naman opposition o walang idea (dahil sa kabobohan) kung ano ang opposition, hayaan nyo yan sila kasi mga KKK (kamaganak, kakilala, kaibigan) yan sila or nandyan talaga yan sila kay BinayDutertePoe to reinforce the campaign of the splitters. In the end nitong campaign natin for OneOpposition, talagang may matira pa rin konti kay BinayDutertePoe unless mag withdraw ang kandidato. By the way, aside from recovering the opposition votes from BinayDutertePoe, huwag nyong kaligtaan na ipagpatuloy ang pag post ng MGA criticisms laban sa mga Aquino -- criticise with same issues repeatedly -- walang criticism na naluluma.


QUESTION: Meron bang MNLF member na supporter ni BinayDutertePoe (BDP)?

ANSWER: Yes meron, and the number represents our target workload in the consolidation for the OneOpposition. Meron nga BBM campaigner na supporter ng BDP. Individualistic KKK is very real. The challenge of OneOpposition is to elevate all oppositions to put aside the individualism, and level up their priority for the common goal of the OneOpposition, which is to defeat the AquinoAdministration. Individualism is best applied AFTER the OneOpposition wins, but never before we win. As opposition, we must do a collusive behavior, work together as one to win the pie. We cannot talk about eating our individualistic slices of the pie before the whole pie becomes ours. We get the pie first, together as one, then we partake from it after we succeed in getting it.

QUESTION: How about the OFWs?

ANSWER: Ang splitter ni PNOyAdmin para ma carve out ang OFW and Contract Workers ay si Seneres, but he died before the campaign starts.

INSTRUCTION. Huwag kayong magsayang ng stress at oras sa pag-engage sa discussion, debate, or argument with the online campaigners ng BDP (Binay, Duterte, Poe). Simply share this video in your timeline, page, and groups at least ONCE A DAY. If the BDPs comment in your timeline, page, or group, simply DELETE their comments. We are not after the aggressive BDPs. We are after the Facebookers na hindi engaged sa BDP aggressive political campaigning. Also, in your pages, may settings dyan on privacy, restrict nyo ang Malaysia. Okidoks!

While there is only ONE MINOR REASON why opposition voters will not vote for Miriam, there are, on the other hand, MANY MAJOR REASONS why they will not vote for Binay, Duterte, and Poe (BDP). The consolidation of One Opposition for Miriam Santiago will have least resistance, least bitterness, and least hesitation to those who have to give way, hence most rational.

On Malaysian "peacekeeping force" in Mindanao

Kapag "peacekeepers" dapat civilian hindi military; atsaka dapat UN-sanctioned and UN-commissioned.
Mga loko yan pati color ng UN helmet counterfeit. Yang pinapapasok ni Pnoy dito ay Malaysian military technical assistance yan sa MILF.

Bomb making instructors, military surveillance, and intelligence gathering, and sabotage planners ang mga yan.

Unconstitutional yan, tolerated military espionage yan, treason si PNoy nyan, dapat merong Malaysian VFA Treaty tulad ng US VFA bago magpapasok ng foreign military dito sa Pilipinas.

Kung may armed conflict, UN peacekeepers are military. If no armed conflict, mga civilian peacekeepers na magtulong ng livelihood projects, pag tutor ng mga students, pag bigay ng humanitarian aid. Eh may pinirmahan ng Final Peace Agreement ang MILF sa Malacanang, peaceful na, hindi pwede yang Military ang peacekeepers mo dyan, dapat civilians. Palibhasa kasi counterfeit ng UN yan, kaya ganyan wala sa tamang protocol ng UN

Atsaka hindi naman neutral party ang Malaysia. Malaysia and MILF are one in the same side. It is Malaysia that brainwashes and radicalizes the Filipino Muslims to think that they are Moro-not-Filipino. Klarong klaro na technical assistance yan ng Maalaysia for the MILF. Malaysia is the big-brother of MILF. Kunwari pa peacekeeper. Loko.

Hindi yan peacekeepers. Mga troublemakers yan. Mga instigators yan. Mga agent provocateurs yan. Walang public monitoring, walang performance audit, walang accountability, walang accomplishment reports, walang peace advocacy materials yang mga yan sa tinatagal-tagal na nyan nag-ooperate dito sa Mindanao under the PNoy Administration.

May creeping invasion ang Malaysia dito at gusto ng traydor na Aquino na safe ang mga Malaysian operatives dito.

Kung peacekeepers ang Malaysian forces sa Mindanao, eh ano ang AFP/PNP? Threat ang AFP? Troublemaker ang PNP? Kakalurky!

Yang mga Malaysian forces na yan, yan sila ang nang-harass and pumatay sa mga Pilipino sa Sabah. Kalaban natin yan. Tapos pinapa-pasok lang ni PNoy dito sa Pinas at binibigyan ng privilege to do demonstrate their force here in mainland Philippines. Walang hiya talaga etong PNoy administration -- mas pabor pa sa Malaysia kesa sa Pilipino.

Punyeta! Mas magaling pa kaming mga MNLF mag-isip para sa kapakanan ng Philippine national security kumpara sa mga General ng AFP DND ni PNoy. I want a political appointment in DND pag manalo si Miriam.

In response to the news article titled, "New group of Malaysian peacekeepers arrives".


Q & A


QUESTION: Peacekeepers can be military personnels from other nations, EXAMPLE peacekeepers in Golan Heights. Know your fact! Middleman ang malaysia at part sa agreement ng both parties, galit kayo kasi napag iwanan naman kayo, bawat grupo gusto sila ang mag control ng kalakaran sa mindanao ginagawa nyong rason ang kahirapan, relihiyon, lupa. (JJ Quijano)

ANSWER: Peacekeepers has to work within the UN organization. Yang Malaysian peacekeepers dito ay hindi yan under UN. Malaysia provides funds, technical assistance, weapons, and propaganda assistance to MILF. Malaysia is the Big Brother of MILF. Kailangan neutral and disinterested party ang broker. Hindi pwede Malaysia ang broker, or middleman, or peacekeeper with regards to MILF. Marami naman iba pang bansa dyan, may UN naman, bakit ipipilit ang Malaysia?

The OneOPPOSITION will vote for Miriam

My decisive recommendation as OneOpposition will override all differences of personal preferences among us, the many voters of the opposition. After weighing all factors, I have already recommended that the OneOpposition will put aside all our different personal gusto or preferences, and will all vote as a bloc for Miriam. All of us, undivided, will have to bite the bullet for the supreme interest of the OneOpposition, to vote for one only, for Miriam, that is if we want us, the Opposition, to win. As individuals, we love, we hate, we think, we prefer, we speculate on candidates differently; but as voters in the side of the resistance or opposition, we will all vote decisively as ONE OPPOSITION to WIN.

Campaign Rage Meaning

CAMPAIGN RAGE is hostile expression of annoyance caused by tension and despair in political or advocacy campaigning. (new terminology by John R. Petalcorin)

Proving Bona Fide Intent to Run

COMELEC cancels certificates of candidacies of some who fails to present proof of bona fide intent to run. In my opinion, the filing of Certificate of Candidacy (COC) is the primary proof that a person has explicit intention to run because it is a public document as it is sworn in before a notary public.

The best secondary proofs of bona fide intention to run are his preparations for the campaign, such as (1) formulation of platform and agenda, (2) development of information, education, and communication materials, (3) organizing of supporters' and movements, (4) nominating a bank account that is ready to receive financial donations, and (5) development of campaign plan and strategy.

Never should political party affiliation, even a party nomination, can be used as proof of bona fide intention because there are candidates who choose to be independent, and some candidates who are nominated are mere dummy substitutes.

Never should availability of spendable wealth be used as proof of bona fide intention to run because there is always a facility for campaign contributions for supporters.

It is the absence of fund, whether at the start of the campaign or in the middle, that decreases a candidate's capability to campaign nationwide; but it cannot be used as factor to determine lack of bona fide intention to run.

A candidate's health and old-age may restrain a candidate's capability to attend to rigorous campaign, but it cannot be used as factor to determine lack of bona fide intention to run.

The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) is supposed to be apolitical. Declaring a qualified candidate as nuisant based on subjective popularity perception, unofficial wild guess that the candidate is not winnable, and generalizing a specific profession is an act of prejudice, infringement of rights to run for public post, and political harassment by the COMELEC. Such act is abuse of power because they are virtually puting their personal guess, preference, and opinion above the constitutional rights and above the general electorates' right to choose. Remember, genuine sincerity of intent to run is proven by the candidate's campaign preparation and public pronouncements, not by a mere common wild guess opinion of a third party on the candidates popularity, winnability, and financial speculation.

I debunk COMELEC's opinion that says independency decreases a candidate's capability for such a rigorous and expensive campaign. Such COMELEC opinion is absolutely malicious, a clear act of political intervention that brainwashes the mind of the electorates. It is also an act that somewhat favors the candidates with political parties and discriminates the independent ones.

I believe that political parties neither have monopoly, nor comparative advantage in accessing campaign contributors compared to independent candidates.

Campaign contribution is a political investment. People contribute campaign funds to candidates who have similar advocacy with them. Example, people who are scared if BBL will be passed will put their political investment on candidates who are anti-BBL; so we expect that people who are anti-BBL will not support political parties who are pro-BBL like Liberal Party and its allies such as PDP-Laban. Another example is Malaysia's huge political investment to political parties in exchange of silence on the Sabah issue.

I have 21 Legislative Agenda in the John Petalcorin for Senator campaign. The potential happiness people will get from my legislative agenda translates into 21 reasons why people should invest campaign funds in my national candidacy. I never has problem in formulating my basket of agenda because the interest I have in mind is only my people, my country, and humanity as a whole.

One of the major reason why I hesitate to join coalitions is that a multiple-party scenario is almost always problematic in terms of platform harmonization, they cannot fully agree to a common agenda because they have their own opinion on various issues and each one have their own business interests. This absense of uniformity of agenda in coalitions is also a reason why campaign funders hesitate, for example, an anti-BBL funder may like to put in money into the coalition to support a Presidential Candidate who is anti-BBL, but the same funder may hesitate because that particular Presidential Candidate has some well-known pro-BBL candidates under his or her Senatorial tickets.

Choice of companion and technique determines the level of campaign expenses. Candidates who want to arrive with style and grandeur in the sortie venue by helicopter and bodyguards will spend a much higher campaign fund to compared to the candidate who will only commute alone. The candidate in helicopter may attract the crowd, but voters normally prefer to vote for the candidates with simple lifestyle.

The current development in wireless communication and internet has sharply decreased the financial expenses of wide-scale campaign of candidates who know how to use it. When it comes to field sorties, the political parties and coalitions have huge entourage, more people to coordinate, hence more difficulty in events coordination, bigger logistical problem, and larger financial requirement compared to candidates who prefer to be independents, not to mention they are prone to internal conflict.

The independents, undeniably, have flexibility advantage and least financial requirement because they will usually mobilize a nationwide campaign like a small unit.

Residence address in not enough information needed for COMELEC to contact the candidate. The COC Form should have a space where candidates write their contact information such as telephone numbers, email address, and official Facebook account. It should also have a space for names and contact numbers of three references needed to background investigate the education, work, organization, and next-of-kin of the candidate. Much better if COMELEC will just require the candidate to complete and attach a standard government Personnel Date Sheet Form in his/her COC.

The politics of disaster

It's not the disaster of natural calamity (earthquake, tsunami, typhoon) that will cause a mass kill after those who will die on-the-spot, but the slow mobilization of help and chaos because of our inability to remove an incompetent leader, moreso if the new leader is the incompetent's anointed one. Ang boto mo hindi yan taya sa sugal na may premyo pag winnable sa political ads and surveys ang binoto mo. Ang maling pagboto ng leader ay maaring ikamatay mo o ng pamilya mo sa panahon ng national disaster. Remember Yolanda.

Fearless words that describe PNoy and his Administration in the past five years as President of the Republic of the Philippines: Aid-redtaper, Buck-passer, Credit-grabber, Shameless, Apathetic, Incorrigible, Impunity, Incompetent, Hoodwink, Rogue, Psychotic, Mobster, Traitor, Malaysian Collaborator, Oligarchy, Elitist, Media-hyped.

ANTI-ROYALTY. The anti-dynasty slogan is soft, I will make it stronger with anti-royalty, not as a legislated measure but as a voting culture. Pag ang magulang ay naging Presidente o Senador na noon, huwag na iboto ang anak na kumakandidatong Presidente o Senador, payuhan na lang na i-invest sa private sector business ang mga kinita nila nung naka-upo pa ang magulang nila. Yang mga magkakamag-anak na dala-dalawa na sa Senado, huwag na iboto yang dalawang pareho, isa lang dapat kada angkan. Walang forever - isang termino lang dapat para parating bago ang naka-upo, ma Presidente man, o Senador, o Congressman, Governor, Mayor. WALANG PAGBABAGO SA LUMANG KANDIDATO. #iBOTOangBAGO
