Default Philippines May Get New Law: Sing National Anthem With Spirit or Face Prison Time

Philippines May Get New Law: Sing National Anthem With Spirit or Face Prison Time - The New York Times
"Filipinos would be required to sing the national anthem when it is played in public — and to do so with enthusiasm — under a bill that the House of Representatives of the Philippines approved on Monday.
If the bill, which will be considered by the Senate, is approved and signed into law, a failure to sing the anthem, “Lupang Hinirang,” with sufficient energy would be punishable by up to year in prison and a fine of 50,000 to 100,000 pesos, or about $1,000 to $2,000. A second offense would include both a fine and prison time, and violators would be penalized by “public censure” in a newspaper.
“The singing shall be mandatory and must be done with fervor,” the bill states."
Gov'ts demanding respect too.

sheesh... could everyone just chill out?

This is a good reason to not move to the Philippines.

I love their president. Anyone that has personally dropped dudes from helicopters and allows assassination squads to take out drug lords and criminal gangs is ok in my book.

Plus he called Kerry a loon and his ambassador a f*ggot. Entertainment at its purest.
