How Noynoy’s incompetence made Duterte happen

The regime of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte happened not because of a template for “dictatorship” cut by vintage 1970s “tyrant” Ferdinand Marcos. Duterte “happened” because he represented a voters’ swing to an alternative to the status quo overseen by the progeny governments of the 1986 “people power revolution”. That revolution promised Filipinos change. Instead it […]

Why Yellowtards need people like @PinoyAkoBlog to ‘say what they want to say’

Unfortunately for the pro-Duterte community, the recent exposés on the identities of those behind certain anti-Duterte websites – SilentNoMorePH and PinoyAkoBlog among them – did not have the desired effect. Rather than flush out others who are involved in what is widely believed to be a well-oiled information control machine, one of the persons identified, […]

Da Pinoy and Road Manners

I recently got into a Facebook group comments section with the topic of the Land Transportation Office (LTO) regarding aftermarket lights, exhausts, horns, etc. It started with one complaint of a person who got traffic citations for his aftermarket blue corner lights and aftermarket exhaust on his scooter. He was basically saying that the LTO […]

Pinoy Ako Blog’s popularity with some academics at ADMU & UP proof of their mediocrity

Recently I sat back and watched while one of our former hecklers got a dose of her own medicine. I felt validated that I had proven again that the best defence against our detractors is patience and the discipline to allow them the time and space to dig their own graves. I always knew that […]

Like squatters, jeepney drivers are national PARASITES

It’s crazy the way the Philippine government coddles these jeepney drivers. They are mere pawns in a vast decades-long campaign of emotional blackmail Filipino commies have subjected Filipinos to on a national scale. And yet, though these World War II era contraptions have been pitched across as a “public utility” that “serves” Filipino commuters, they […]

The time has come to have a conversation about someone’s face

When the quality of someone’s face matches the quality of her character, sometimes you really can’t help but comment on said face. The trouble is, talking about someone’s face is not very polite — because, to be fair, one can’t really help what one’s face looks like. Make up can enhance a face but by […]

Duterte, The Pacifist, and The Just War Tradition

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse.” — John Stuart Mill President Duterte has been accused of using unnecessary violence, killings, and other atrocities to fight the war against drugs, […]

Recalling “Oeneta” – a play banned for being highly-critical of the Ateneo High School

Alumni of Ateneo High School (AHS) Batch 1986 will remember the play “Oeneta” produced by Section A in the junior year of that class. It was highly-critical of the AHS and eventually went on to be banned by the school. Section A is the top honours section of every batch at the AHS and is […]
