If you're one of us then roll with us.

I guess people really do have a tendency to scrutinize every move made by the government and some of them have become so disgruntled over the years that they don't realize that instead of constructive criticism, they actually try to find fault immediately.

So the government announced a new domestic tourism advocacy campaign a couple of weeks back and as expected, there were varied reactions but most of them were not favorable coming off of a total disaster which revealed how a logo was plagiarized from another country's tourism board.

The new campaign title and slogan is meant as a call to action for Filipinos to travel the Philippines and contribute to the economy by spurring domestic tourism.  It's pretty easy to grasp when you actually know the idea behind it (handle, big idea, whatever the fuck you call it, fool).

But apparently, it's very hard for some people to comprehend anything, be it in English or Tagalog. This comment is my favorite simply because it makes me feel better about myself.

Ikaw na. Ikaw na ang magaling!!!

And you're not one of us, so in short, hindi ka kasama sa mga niyayayang maglakbay dito sa Pilipinas o saan man sa mundo.
