    Napaka bobobo naman ng mga bwaka ng inang mga mambabatas na yan. Bakit hindi nila unahin yung cha-cha para umunlad na ang Pilipinas tapos tsaka nila balikan yung mga walang kakwenta-kwentang bills nila na gaya nito. Jusko yan ba ang dahilan kung bakit kayo kumandidato, para maghasik ng kabobohan? Napaka-unfair talaga pati ng voting system natin, hindi nasasala ang mga utak ng kandidato, eventually yung mga bopols pa nananalo!

    Ibig sabihin nito, kung mag selfie ka, make sure na lahat ng tao (or private properties) sa background, nakakuha ka ng permiso.

    Secondly, kung may makita ka crime in progress, like nag ke candy crush na senator during session, bawal kuhanan ng pic.

      Tunay na ito ang nickname ng bill na isinumite ni mambabatas. Huwag masyadong maging judgmental…ikaw din baka maging judge ka na napunta sa mental! Tigilan na ang angas kung wala din naman pambili ng bigas.

    Wow Abe… I expected better writing from you being a regular reader/visitor of your site… Read your headline..”Anti-Selfie Bill proposed in Congress”… then read the first sentence of this report…”There is a bill in Congress that seeks to prohibit taking photos of people without their permission.”… don’t you think your headline is misleading? Since when is ‘taking photos of OTHER people WITHOUT their permission’ becomes ‘ANTI-SELFIE’????…. just to get pagehits perhaps????

    • Avatar for Abe Olandres Abe Olandres says:

      It is the “nickname” of the bill they used in congress. We just followed their terminology.

      @Akuma… MAS TANGA ANG POST LANG NG POST PERO DI NAGBABASA NG ARTICLE… DOESN’T MATTER KUNG SAAN GALING ANG NEWS, IT IS UPON THE WRITER TO CORRECTLY STATE WHAT THE INFOR HE IS TRYING TO CONVEY… THERE IS PROPER WAY OF WRITING THE HEADLINES, LIKE USING QUOTATIONS, TO AVOID MIS-INTERPRETATION… LEARN YOUR JOURNALISM IF YOU MAY…. KUNG ABOT NG ISIP MO YUN…. OTHERWISE, CHILL….

      The “Anti-Selfie” term was coined by media. There was no mention of it in the HB 4807. It was sensationalized para mapansin kasi ang media ang maapektuhan sa bill na eto. It should have been called “Anti-Paparazzi” Bill. I guess Abe didn’t care about proper information as long as he gets views.

    • Avatar for Abuzalzal Abuzalzal says:

      Kayong tatlo ang mga tanga! Lololololololol! Sabi na nga ni Abe nickname iyan ng bill.sinusunod lang nya. Hinde kasi kayo nakakaintende ng english. Daldal kayo ng daldal, bunganga lang ninyo ang nag-iisip! Lolololololololololololololololol
