Reflection Time: What is the Philippine’s Biggest Problem?

Low-hanging fruit. It can get some leaders misguided into addressing a problem just because it is easier to solve and check off, without even first weighing it out against the other more fundamentally relevant issues.

Overseas Election Results Prove that Bongbong Marcos was Cheated Massively

Who you see scheduled to take the throne of the second most powerful office of the land is more likely than not a Robber. My sensors tell me that Overseas Absentee Votes cast by our heroic OFWs were mostly untouched (least manipulated) by the LP-COMELEC-Smartmatic triumvirate of electoral sabotage. Common sense dictates that the Liberal […]

Why Bad Things Happen to “Good” People – Especially in the Philippines

Tragedy strikes again! Another gruesome ASG-sponsored beheading just took the life on an “innocent” Canadian visitor guilty of the crime of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and buying into the “it’s more fun” advertising peddled around by the creative national tourism promoters of the land of gullible’s troubles.

Again we are talk of the town all […]

Five Routes to the Presidency in the Philippines

With Mayor Rody Duterte’s trail-blazing ascent to the presidency, we may have to rewrite the books on the ins and outs of politics in the country. He was from a marginalized region of the country way down South with a thick Visayan accent, had no pocket money of his own to launch a national campaign, came into […]

Ushering in a Fresh New Golden Era of Change: President Rodrigo Roa Duterte

The most awaited day has finally arrived. Men and women across the nation suspended in a state of anticipation suddenly break out in jubilant cheers, high fives and hip hip hoorays as the initial partial results from COMELEC come in revealing what the surveys and rally crowd sizes have been saying all along – Mayor […]

Changes to Expect Under a Duterte Government

Change is finally coming folks. People are feeling once again the euphoria of a new beginning – something like the crisp cool freshness in the air when it’s the final week of classes before the Christmas and New Year holidays begin, or the feeling of moving into a new school, job, house or city.
