This post is not about traffic-related matters, really. I am just wondering how the government can afford to buy luxury vehicles in today's economy. Here are some samples:
Just imagine, a Ford Chateau Wagon, a Nissan Terrano and a Toyota Camry. All of them costing over a million pesos, brand new. Just imagine the good these money would do if these were spent fighting poverty or crime, or improving infrastructure to attract foreign investments, or even pay our national debt.

Is it too much to expect hope the government to exercise good judgement when it comes to it's expenses, especially for things like these? I mean, this just sends the message that the government prioritizes the needs of a few government employees over the the rest of the country. And that's not exactly what they need to do at a time like this.
