Malacañang - Over the past 7 years, the Filipino poor population has nearly doubled, causing the country's top Population control groups to come up with the way to control it. The data is an exact opposite of the data gathered for the Filipino Upper and Middle-class population, which has seen a steady sign of decline.

"Obviously, the rich Filipinos' decline in number can be attributed to discipline and family planning while we see that now there are almost 35 million poor Filipinos and counting. We must definitely do something about it." said a man with a white coat and a pen in his pocket.

The government has jump-started its initiatives in battling over-population of the poor by making sure they have less meals each day.

"There have been developments already, From 570,000 families in March, the total number of households reporting severe hunger rose by almost 200,000 to 760,000 in June-a sure sign, that we are on the right track. In the SWS terminology, severe hunger refers to "those who experienced it 'Often' or 'Always' in the last three months." said the man in glasses with a folder.

"The increase in the number of families that went hungry at least once in the three-month period "due to lack of anything to eat," from 15.7 percent in March to 16.3 percent of the total population in June, is not unexpected; the unstoppable rise in fuel and especially food prices in the last several months is a daily economic reality. To be sure, the proportion is still lower than the high of 21.5 percent recorded in September 2007, but the current total of 2.9 million families should give all of us, and especially President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and her economic managers something to be proud of in their great plan to battle over-population." another person in a weird hat butt in.

According to the survey conducted June 27-30, hunger in Metro Manila is now back at a record high, rising by almost half to 22 percent of the population. A full 6 percent of Metro Manila's population is now classified as having suffered from severe hunger.

"The president is doing everything she can to make sure that the problem of over-population of the poor is under-control as such problem can only impede the growth in the economy that President Arroyo has produced. Another successful project we've accomplished is to send as much poor Filipinos as we can to the different parts of the world so we don't need to mind them." said an idiot.

Poor Filipinos are ruining our country's economic growth.

Poverty Groups however have expressed anger to these anti-poor-population programs of the government. "We are now officially on hunger strike!" said Poor-Population activist Mang Tikmoy. they have been on hunger strike since 2003.
