Why Duterte fans continue to justify his rape joke

RODRIGO DUTERTE’s unorthodox language and idiosyncratic campaign style have skyrocketed his popularity to such mind-blowing proportions. The tough-talking mayor of Davao city recently drew flak for cracking a joke on the 1989 rape-slay of Australian missionary Jacqueline Hamill. “She was gang-raped, (the prisoners) had lined up for their turn. But she was so beautiful, the […]

Homosexuality and Global Warming: Are they Science-based or Something Else?

Nothing is quite as amusing as waking up to the curses, insults, and angry voices from the uber-liberals reacting to a piece that challenges the narrative they hold sacred. Good Lord, the angry voices of these folks do sound like a bunch of jackals with hemorrhoids! So what did I do now? Ah yes, I […]

Grace Poe’s energy plan reveals why she is a mere vacuous parrot

So Grace Poe-Llamanzares (GPL) has vowed to put a cap on coal in our energy mix should she become President. Of course this vow is all in the name of environmentalism, the fight against Climate Change or Global Warming, and our country’s commitment to the Paris Agreement. While it is important to be mindful of […]

The Duterte Derangement Syndrome

So Presidential front runner, Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, has been taking some heat lately from different angles. This past weekend he was skewered left and right from his critics for a ‘sexist’ remark he uttered back in 1989. Today I noticed at least a couple of newspapers show articles that highlight a psychiatric report used for […]

Bilang Pilipino SWS Mobile Survey an evil perversion of the science of Statistics!

I am a statistician. I am a graduate of the University of the Philippines School of Statistics. I do not approve of the methodology of the Bilang Pilipino SWS Mobile Survey. More importantly, I detest their use of Statistical methodologies to lend credence to their obviously flawed methodology. It obfuscates its lack of credibility by […]

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 […]

Homosexuality and Homophobia: In the end it is about Tolerance

This morning I visited Get Real Post to check on how my readers responded to my recent article on the Pacquiao vs gay community fiasco. I was pleased to see that my piece has piqued so many interests from so many people. However, I may have touched a nerve amongst some of my pro-gay readers. […]

Why I Find Vitriol Against ‘Homophobes’ Disturbing

Over the weekend, 8 time world boxing champion and senatorial candidate, Rep. Manny Pacquiao, got himself on the receiving end of verbal flurries from netizens and celebrities that were probably a lot more stinging than the beating he took from his arch-rival Juan Manuel Marquez. This happened after he expressed his disagreement on same-sex marriage […]
