From Raïssa Robles
Today there was a bounce, a vigor, a purpose to boxing champ Manny Pacquiao as he danced around the ring, throwing punches at Brandon Rios’ bloodied face.
UPDATE: Pacquiao made this promise to the typhoon survivors after his victory:
“It was very difficult for me [not to visit the ravaged areas] because I was in the middle of the training camp and I wanted to go, but I couldn’t. I was just praying for them and I just sent my staff there to bring them help and relief goods. I promised them that after the fight I would visit them. I plan to go there as soon as possible.” [source – South China Morning Post (HK]
He wasn’t just fighting to win the multi-million dollar purse.
He was fighting to lift the weary spirit of a nation. And a world.
And he won.
He won after a year of disgrace, caused by a sudden punch in his last fight that knocked him out cold.
But by getting up and not quitting, he redeemed himself.
Now he has the credibility to tell his countrymen that they can lift themselves out of the tragedy brought about by Typhoon Haiyan. Just the way he lifted himself from defeat – through hard, painful work.
I admire Manny Pacquiao for his boxing. I think he’s one of the greatest boxers in history.
However, I’m glad he cannot run for President until 2022.
By that time, we will know what stuff he’s really made of, politically.
Meanwhile, let’s celebrate his victory.

OFFICIAL NA SI LACSON IN-CHARGE OF REHAB
MANILA, Philippines—President Benigno Aquino III on Tuesday signed the official appointment of former Senator Panfilo Lacson as a rehabilitation czar.
Malacanang in a statement said Lacson would oversee reconstruction in the regions that Supertyphoon “Yolanda” devastated in November.
Malacanang added Lacson would hold a Cabinet rank under the office of the President and would oin the Cabinet meeting later this Tuesday.
SUGGESTION ko LANG KAY REHABSEC LACSON
Makipagusap agad sa Dean ng UP School (College) of URBAN AND REGIONAL PLANNING.
Oy Oy, matagal na nga lang , PhD drop out ako diyan, di kasi nakakuha ng scholarship
kaya nag OFW na lang. Sino kaya ang kinunsulta ng mga sumulat NG DRAFT ng
Executive Order para malaman nila ang ibig sabihin Ng concept of REHAB?
Baka sa GOOGLE puede na.
This is one approach using DEDUCTIVE thinking:
REHAB = REHAB; THE RIGHT SIDE SHOULD STRIVE TO EQUAL THE LEFT.
IT IS NOT REHAB WHEN :
EDUC1/EDUC1 + PW1/PW1 + n,n,n, = EDUC1/EDUC9 + PW1/PW7 + n,n,n,
MEANING when Educ is only 1/9 + PW is only 1/7 the operation is not REHAB.
REHAB IS A PROGRAM and must be composed of projects, activities, tasks, motion, etc.
What Mayor Romualdez is doing is MOTION that produces NADA but emotion.
ALSO Sec Lacson should POSTHASTE send a staff to JAPAN to get ideas
on the content and process of REHAB in their TSUNAMI devastated areas.

philstar.com/headlines/2013/11/27/1261514/tax-evasion-raps-vs-pacman-political-mistake-analyst…itong si casiple, minsan parang hindi nag-iisip.
baka si pacman na ang prez sa 2016. tatalunin na si binay. dahil inaapi ngayon si pacman kampi ang bayan sa kanya. at nariyan pa si Gunggona, maglalabas ng batas para sa libreng tax habambuhay ni paxman.sarap ng sikat sa pinas. pag inapi, may sasaklolo agad.
LIBRE SA TAX SI PAQUIAO? ang dapat libre sa tax yung mga empliado na maliit ang sueldo. walang tinatanggap na pork barrel ang mga emplyeado lalo na ng gobyerno. SILA ANG DAPAT NA LIBRE SA TAX. para wala nang nakawin ang mga HINAYUPAK NA MGA POLITIKO.
I think, may batas yata tayo ngayon that said na yong mga manggagawa na kumikita less than 40K sa isang taon ay hindi na kailangang magbayad pa ng buhis. kaso lang, sabi ni kim henares na may mga self employed professionals tayo gaya ng mga accountants, doctors, surgeons, dentists, etc, na kumikita lang daw within the vicinity of 40K a year at halos walang buhis na binabayaran. pero ang gagara ng mga kotse nila at ang lalaki pa ng mga mansion nila. BIR is now getting strickt with these people and closely monitoring their tax returns.

Assumptions (guni-guni ) on the taxes of Congressman Pacquiao
Bilang karaniwang taxpayer, hindi abogado o accountant, nakapagaral naman kaya marunong mag taglish, tapos magbasa dito kay Ms Raissa, heto ang TINGIN ko sa palitan ng laway este diskurso ni Pacquiao at ng BIR.
Sa business, tatlo ang mahalagang dokumento para batayan din ng buwis (1) sources and applications of funds (Cash Flow), (2) Profit and Loss (Income Statement), at saka (3) Balance Sheet (Assets and Liabilities. Sales minus expenditures equals revenue; revenue minus expenses ( which include deductions and exemptions) equals gross income; gross income minus taxes equals net income or profit . Maraming pang rekesitos na natatago diyan. Irrelevant yan just to show lang complexities as SOURCE OF THE POWER of the taxmen over ordinary business mortals.
Sa employment naman o mga professionals, MUKHANG SIMPLY LANG. Revenue or Earnings or income (pag salary only) from occupation or profession minus deductions and exemptions equals taxable income. Taxable income minus taxes equals annual income after taxes.
Big business revenues is more amenable or suitable to Accountant magic or carpentry. Thus a Taipan corporation can have a revenue of 100 million pesos and pay only 32? million pesos as tax. The Taipan as chair of the board may have a salary of One million pesos but proportion wise can pay an income of 5 hundred thousand pesos. At first glance parang mahirap mandaya ang mga swelduhan tulad ng ordinary government employee. Tepok agad sa withholding tax, puera pa yung value added tae este tax. Pero parang reasonable at fair naman ang taxation sa US.
Using (with thanks) part of Mr Johnny Lin’s hypothetical example as model for calculating total earnings subject to tax with assumption of 66%? allowed exemptions and deductions (dapat binayaran ng maximum si Jessica Sanches kung kasama sa deductions), Pacquiao’s last Fight with Brandon Rios with a purse of $18M, Pacquiao would have paid the IRS tax amounting to $1.836M and would have received REFUND amounting to $3.564M. Pacquiao have to declare to the BIR gross earnings of $9.684M from his Purse of $18M. Assuming P43=US $1, Pacquiao’s taxable earnings before deductions is P416.412M. Assuming further he is allowed 30% deductions, his taxable income is P291.489M. At 32% tax rate he will have to pay the BIR P87.447M which read another way is EIGHTY SEVEN MILLION FOUR HUNDRED FORTY-SEVEN THOUSAND PESOS.
With a deduction of P124.923 million lalabas na malaki rin ang 30% ASSUMED deductions ni Congressman Pacquiao. Mas malaki pa sa tax niya ng P37.476MILYON.
Yun Johnny Lin model puedeng gamitin to calculate taxes to be paid by Cong Pacquiao BASED ON HIS PURSE, lalabas tiba-tiba pa rin ang BIR.
2012 against jm marquez – – – P971.290 milyon
2012 against Bradley – – – – – – P1,097.98 milyon
2011 against jm marquez – – P952.820 milyon
2011 against s mosley – – – – – P866.200 milyon
Total REPORTED PURSE for 2 years= P3,888.290 milyon
