Mandatory military training in Ph schools needed to toughen up ‘temperamental’ millennials

I had an epiphany today. I found out that ROTC (a.k.a. Citizen’s Military Training or CMT or Citizen’s Army Training or CAT) hasn’t been mandatory in Philippine schools since 2001. And so I thought, holy shit, that explains a lot about the quality of Filipino “millennials” today! I realise now that mixed into the cocktail […]

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 […]

The TRUTH about Martial Law: Young Filipinos no longer believe that it was all bad!

The war for minds surrounding the 2016 elections now seems to be centred on how the last 30 years of “freedom” that was “won” in 1986 stacks up against the 20-year Martial Law regime of former President Ferdinand Marcos.

After all, Singapore and the Philippines started as equals back in the 1960s. Records even suggests that the Philippines was the most developed country in the region during that time due […]

Lee Kuan Yew and the Singapore he built is proof that the Philippines did it all wrong

He had a vision for Singapore and the courage to break ground where lesser folk beholden to the popular sentiment feared to tread. The country LKY built is a stark in-your-face reminder that just about every “contributing factor” Filipinos, their […]

BBL: An agreement with just one Muslim rebel group will not bring peace to Mindanao

Philippine President Benigno Simeon (BS) Aquino would like us all to believe that the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law will bring peace to Mindanao. This is probably what some people around him like Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process Secretary Teresita Deles and Miriam Coronel-Ferrer head of Government Peace Panel (for peace talks with the Moro […]

Filipinos need to end their love affair with mediocrity and ‘pwede na yan’ mentality

My views are not very popular with Filipinos. I guess it’s partly my fault because I like posting topics that some might consider taboo and boring. But it’s not like I discuss religion or make fun of other people’s religious beliefs. Granted, I like talking about Philippine politics and society in general but I really […]

Why do Singaporeans hate Filipinos?

It’s the obvious question everyone is asking nowadays amidst a raft of hate blogs and other such digital artifcats going “viral” all over the Net. Many of these seem to have stemmed from the whole fracas surrounding a plan by Filipino community leaders to stage a 12th June Independence Day event at a major shopping […]
