The Department of Justice Region 3 in my home city of San Fernando, Pampanga sent me a letter about my blog, regarding to a contentious contents posted. Should I respond to this?

Do you think I came to post here for criticizing the National Government?

Should I stop writing after I received this letter?

Should I answer the letter?

Should I serve my term in jail?

Do you know what today is? ;-P

 

 

 

 

 

 

APRIL FOOL’S! I’m not going to jail.

But I’ll be back into the WordPress world by this month.
