Inequality is the engine of political change that society and government need to come to terms with

What is the biggest problem in the world today? ISIS? No. That is the effect of inequality. Drugs? No. That may be a cause of inequality, but more an effect as well. Over-population? No. The New York Times and other Think Tanks, who used to advocate mandated population control, now say poverty is the cause […]

President Rodrigo Duterte will replace the Church and ‘civil society’ as the nation’s champion of Equality

Here we are debating whether the catcall and wolf whistle of President-Elect Rodrigo Duterte (DU30) was sexist or not. Okay, let us debate it for whatever lessons it might give us, but to have it as one of our headline news? Aren’t we losing focus on the biggest problem? Oh, I forgot, it involved one […]

Rigged by design: Officials of COMELEC and election watchdog PPCRV are all members of anti-Marcos movements

What we feared would happen has happened. Because: 1. Despite the propaganda, three critical features were once again ignored by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC). These are: the digital signatures of the Board of Election Inspectors (that tell us that the results transmitted to Central HQ indeed come from the claimed precinct), the use of UV […]

Let us all stop judging Rodrigo Duterte using traditional standards

Indeed, the photos streaming into our newsfeeds tell it all. Our eyes don’t tell lies, and it is upsetting when there are attempts to put the crowd estimates at less than a million. Have they forgotten crowd estimates during Pope visits and other events when mammoth crowds converge in Luneta? Or, were those estimates wrong? […]

Stupid legacy: PNoy threat to launch ‘people power’ if Duterte and Marcos Jr win

I showed the “Duterte rape joke” video to guys not in the internet on three occasions, family drivers, tryke drivers, construction workers. The reaction was unanimous that Rodrigo Duterte (DU30) was not cracking a necrophiliac joke, nor was he promoting rape. They interpreted “dapat na-una mayor” as “tarantado kayo, mas tarantado ako”. It was to […]

Amazing grace: Bongbong Marcos could’ve struck back during #PiliPinasDebates2016 but chose not to

Imagine if vice presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos (BBM) was as abrasive and harsh as Alan Peter Cayetano. Yesterday’s vice presidential debate would have deteriorated very quickly. BBM kept his cool because nothing could be achieved by attacking back. Yet, he could if we think about it. Rene Cayetano, the father of Alan, was a partner […]

The Tagalog language consists of words that hardly mean anything of substance

Tagalog is a derivative of the Malay languages as Bahasa Indonesia and Bahasia Malaysia are. They are languages of experiences and emotions. They are NOT languages of the MIND as English, Spanish, German, French, etc, which are derivatives of Latin, are. Latin, in turn, derives its concept from Ancient Greek, which of course found its […]

Has the same sex marriage proposition pushed gay rights activism too far?

Well, you can dress ’em up, but you can’t take them anywhere.  On one side of the ongoing polemics is one who has the “urge for power”.  He wants to be a Senator.  At the same time, he is an internationally famous boxing champ, a Born Again minister, a PBA playing coach, a TV show […]
