The L.A. Weekly just published an article about two Filipinas who were practically enslaved by other Filipinos that run a nursing facility. It’s a very good article that highlights a sad aspect of our community.

    It should also be pointed out that the author of this long, overdue and informative piece of investigative reportage , Gendy Alimurung, is the sole Pinay — and likely only Asian — on the LA Weekly editorial staff. She’s authored good — some, even award-winning — stories in the past but, none as close to community as this.

    The following time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I truly thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you can repair when you werent too busy in search of attention.

    Be careful for these terrible programs: Military
    Millionaire, 21 Days to Riches, Spider Profits,
    Tremendous Millionaire Bot, Money Code (see my evaluate here ), Mad
    Profits & Automotive Profits ALL appear to be either terrible
    scams or nugatory products.
