Spending a lot of m_oney in a project that later nature will destroy this for environmental reason,Just Only Clean!! Clean!! Clean!! Kapal nila. Ang daming pera no? Daming pera ah How many community pantries could have been made. What a waste of people’s precious funds! It bears reminding. This is how criminally skewed the priorities of rodrigo's circus is. We're losing livelihoods, we're going hungry, getting sick and are dying - and the circus wastes taxpayers' money on obnoxious window dressings like this.

Sayang ang pera DENROfficial ! Pwede po naman ibili yon bakuna kaysa sa buhangin? Dafuq. Anu ba talaga ang madudulot na kabutihan nyan? Kung ginamit na lang ang pera sa pantawid gutom at hanapbuhay ng mga tao, diba mas ok pa? Wala na daw pera ang gobyerno.. wow. Why not make it into a vaccine site rather than destroy ngayong Filipino?

Hahaha...bulag at bingi sa pandemic. Alloted na daw budget kaya kailangan gastusin kahit di priority. This shows you how our govt works. The best and the brightest in what? Kailangan ba talaga ito sa panahon ngayon? Mga hunghang gamitin nyo sa pangkalusugan ang prrang yan!

Ang gagago ano po. Palakpakan mga DDS! Devils DENROfficial okay lang kayo? 265M can buy several oxygen tanks and can pay several additional nurses n food for the community pantries! Wrong people in charge in this health crisis. Wrong priorities. Disgusting. Disgraceful. Plain dumb. Duterte’s solution for this Pandemic! More dolomite sands!

Para sa mental health nila yan… hahahaha 🆔⛎🐢🐶🇨🇳 Akala ko ba wala tayong pera sabi ni Dutae?! So paano nagkaroon ng additional budget ang letseng dolomite na ito?! So, P634 million na gastos natin dito imbes na napunta sa tao?! Ayuda na sana sa mga taong nawalan ng trabaho, di ba?! Letse talaga itong gobyernong ito!!

denr this is really a misplaced priority and an insensitive one. i smell hidden agenda behind it. I wonder how much ang nasa pocket ng mga politiko from this 265m para s election next year.
