A TV reporter said in a morning program that with Manaoag Shrine becoming a tourist destination because of the bill passed by Rep. Gina de Venecia (4th District, Pangasinan) in congress and the corresponding allocation of P200 million from the government to bankroll the town's bid, the tourist site transformation would become a DOMINO EFFECT to the market there.

Balolong of Urbiztondo, Pangasinan.
Teka mali ata, is it not MULTIPLIER EFFECT to the market forces there? High school pa lang ako alam ko iyong Domino Effect negative ang connotation noon. Sabi ng nabasa kong pambalot sa tinapa, pag natumba ng Komunista ang Vietnam noong Vietnam War, ang Domino Effect, tumba rin ang Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, at ‘Pinas. Pero noong college ako (opo nakapag-colleg po kami nila Atong at Harold prof pa nga namin si media man Jo Melchor), sabi ng author ng economics book na si prophet of boom Bernie Villegas, pag may namuhunan ng malaking projects gaya ng construction sa isang bayan, ang multiplier effects may trabaho ang mga standby at iyong mga CPA or Counting Post Around na mga dyaski gaya ng pagiging laborer nila, dahil diyan si Aling Puring magkaka-sari-sari store din gaya sa pag benta ng Kuwatro Kantos, yosi, at iba pa dahil sa pera na kinita ng laborer sa namuhunan ng project.
Isa pa kahit sa mga business reporters ng broadsheet hindi Domino Effect ang ginagamit kung hindi Multiplier Effect, Sparkplug, or Catalyst pag you want to use the word or words that could perk the market forces.
Nasa headline kamakailan ng Business World na kulelat ang Pinas sa pag hatak ng Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) sa South East Asia. Ito po ang take ko: Habang nandiyan ang 60-40% biased na pro-Filipino equity sa negosyo sa bayan natin, habang mahal ang kuryente sa Pinas, habang magulo ang Mindanao na kinukulang na rin sa supply ng kuryente, magiging kulelat tayo maski na lang sa Vietnam in terms of snaring FDI sa taon-taon na lang na ginawa ng Diyos. Ayon sa Business World noong last year 2013 "Singapore emerged as the top FDI destination in the region anew with $63.77 billion. It is followed by Indonesia, $18.44 billion; Thailand, $12.95 billion; Malaysia, $12.31 billion; and Vietnam, $8.9 billion, while Philippines netted $3.9 billion.
Habang kulelat tayo sa pag attract ng financially heavy foreign investors, kulelat din tayo sa pag generate ng trabaho sa mga pinu-produce na graduates ng mga universities and colleges natin. Kaya huwag ho kayong magalit pag sinabi noong batang si Angeli Diamante na sumulat ng nag viral na article sa Young Blood ng Philippine Daily Inquirer na ". I hate how a few centuries ago, we were a proud and strong race, but are now reduced to being servants of all—caregivers and nurses in countries outside our own."
Kaya ang masabi ko: Blame the 60-40% xenophobic (anti-foreigner) equity in our constitution. Habang nag papa-kuba sa pagta-trabaho ang mga Overseas Foreign Workers natin, nagiging drug addict iyong mga anak dito sa Pinas, habang si Mr. o si Mrs naman ay naging immoral dahil sa kapalpakan ng government sa economic priorities niya na mag karoon ng enough works dito para hindi na magkahiwalay ang ama at ina ng tahahan.
Blame, too, the absence of enough power plants, nuclear, coal, hydro, at iba, that make doing business in the Philippines very expensive for investors. No brainer po itong analysis ko kasi it results for “ less investors and less jobs para sa atin itong dala ng “60-40”.
I hate too this country where the ironically poor people bear more children despite their limitation to feed their offspring that turned out to be beggars in the street, I hate too the "Ayatullahs" and their faithful in the Catholic church who, hammer and tong, ridiculously and idiotically opposed the good things about the reproductive bill passed by Congress that was eventually signed into law by the government and upheld by the Supreme Court.
A high ranking police official called recently my attention on this paper’s June 22-28 issue “Balolong tried to withdraw gun vs. killers – Police” that I bylined and can be seen on the back page of the paper (You can access it at http://wwwmortzcortigoza.blogspot.com/2014/06/urbiztondo-mayor-tries-to-draw-his.html ).
“Why would you write that (assassinated Urbiztondo Mayor Ernesto) Balolong had a gun when he was not carrying one when he was shot?”.
I told him I and some reporters heard it when the town's chief of police Senior Inspector (captain in the military) Michael Bautista narrated the incident to former congressman Mark Cojuangco at the door of St. Pius V in Urbiztondo after the wedding of Volter – the late mayor’s son.
“No, Bautista did not say it,” what he was saying was the mayor’s bodyguard PO1 Eliseo Ulanday failed to pull out his service pistol in his clutch bag”.
He complained too why I cited a source from the intelligence community that a resident saw two females and a male disembarked from the black Toyota Innova get away car that the assailants of Balolong abandoned at Caoayan-kiling in San Carlos City.
“How can you say its two females and a male who got out from the vehicle where what the police report said there was three males that disembarked and shot the mayor near his (commercial) building in Urbiztondo?”
I told him my source was not from the PNP but from a direct source from the other law enforcement agency that made an investigation in the place where the Innova was left and where the passengers transferred to a cream colored Innova as part of the deception.
“But remember Innova can carry a lot of passengers and not only the two females and a male”.
He said he called my attention since some people can “capitalize” or exploit my news reports.
