The intellectual bankruptcy of a Philippine Opposition under Yellowtard leadership

Another “hero” of the Philippine Opposition in the guise of never-had-been-chief-justice Lourdes Sereno has fallen. She follows others who waged hollow-headed and intellectually-insulting personal “wars” against the government of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. Like those who had fallen before her, Sereno’s biggest mistake was to presume to think that God was on her side. Indeed, […]

The Philippines’ Roman Catholic Church should be taxed and its books opened to public scrutiny

Consider the vastness of the money-making machine that the Philippine Roman Catholic Church is. None of its activities including those that are financially profitable are currently taxed by the Philippine government. Catholic education alone, for example, is an expensive premium service that even the wealthiest of Filipinos clamber over one another to partake of. Yet […]

A Critique of Communist Ideals, SJW-style “Equality,” Leftism, Etc.

The communist insurgency remains a festering problem of our country. One reason is that some of the ordinary people, “disente,” left-leaning, students and Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) support it. So they believe if socialism was enforced and rich people forced to give to the poor, world problems will be solved. There will be no more […]

Good Filipino Catholics agree: Mocha Uson deserves her UST award!

People who are frothing in the mouth over the University of Santo Tomas’s (UST) Alumni Association awarding Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson distinction for government service should just get over it. “Awards” by institutions nowadays have long been under blanket suspicion anyway. Data generated by social media activity had taken over as more reliable indicators of […]

The annual Quiapo Church Black Nazarene fiesta (Traslacion) and Filipinos’ fascination with crowding

It remains quite the modern-day curiosity how more than a million people would troop to Manila for a chance to catch a glimpse and possibly — hoping against hope — touch the “revered” Black Nazarene figurine. I don’t get it. How is this crowding around a relic different, say, from the 30,000 Filipinos several years ago who trooped to […]

Fake X-mas: The Filipino’s most awaited gift-extortion season of the year

The season of lights and carols is finally in the air. Christmas brings many fond memories to most Filipinos, of loved ones and friends all in hopeful anticipation of the Christmas holiday parties and vacation break – and the eve of that day they finally receive their most awaited undeserved gifts and handouts. Caroling and […]

The Philippine Opposition needs to divorce the CBCP in order to progress their agenda

Following the big hype leading to Sunday’s “prayer rally” instigated by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) and the pathetic turnout observed over the course of this little powow, the usual question comes up: What’s next? Evidently this is something that, yet again, wasn’t carefully thought through. Then again, not much thinking is […]
