Scams and more scams

The people shouldn’t really be shocked at the magnitude of the P10-billion pork barrel scam involving Janet Lim-Napoles.
We only have ourselves to blame. This didn’t happen overnight. We allowed it to happen. Nobody, except for a few, really complained. The majority of the people, an overwhelming majority, took things for granted.
Pretty soon, Ilonggos will come to realize that a billion-peso scam has been taking place, and continues to take place, in the Iloilo City Hall.
The facts are only starting to emerge, and the Ombudsman is having a busy time trying to follow leads with help from the Commission on Audit.
When this blows up, Ilonggos will have nobody to blame but themselves.
The media tried to open the can of worms, but many Ilonggos even put the lid back on.
