  • Beno on Filipino culture may not be compatible with operating and using modern train systemsThis is 100% not true. Pinoy trains are the best in the world. As a proud Filipino i find this post treasonous to our glorious nation! Bahala ka!

  • 954Hyden007Toro9876567.321 on Newsflash: Filipinos are choosing LEGISLATORS in the coming 2019 electionsMost of those candidates for public office, do not even understand the term, "Legislative Agenda". So, they try the old trick of sloganeering, like: "Never Again". YellowTards want to bring out the ghost of the late Pres. Marcos Sr., to frighten us, that Marcos Sr., might resurrect, and impose Martial Law again. Or, if his followers, who are Marcos Sr. loyalists, will be voted into office. They may impose , "Martial Law" . I really don't understand what they means by their placards : "Never Again". What did the nation gained from that slogan: "Never Again" ? These YellowTards had...
  • Robert Haighton on Should expensive private schools like the Ateneo de Manila and De La Salle be banned?Thanks Chino for providing the link. Read everything there including the 3 comments. Its really extreme (USA and thus probably also PH) compared not only to my country but also compared to Belgium and Germany.
  • Robert Haighton on Should expensive private schools like the Ateneo de Manila and De La Salle be banned?Thanks Kyle and thanks Random, one other question. What does it take to become a teacher in PH (obviously for a pinoy/pinay)? Is there (are there) differences in becoming a teacher to teach at a kIndergarten, elementary/primary/secondary/ high school/college/university? In my country not just any 'fool' can stand in front of a class room. One has to attend (and pass the exam) of a specific teachers school.
  • BurikatAngInquirer on Don’t be quick to imagine parallels between Najib “ouster” in Malaysia and the 1986 “people power revolution”Ang layo ng comparison Inquirer ah (as usual, kulang sa tornilyo at lohika ang mga editors ng kultong babasahing Inquirer). Lihitimong election ang nangyari at tinanggal ang dati at niluklok si Mahathir. Ginusto ng karamihan sa Malaysia ang nangyari (sabi nga ng kaopisina ko na taga-Malaysia, ginusto nila si Mahathir at siya nga ang "tatay" ng Malaysia na nagpaunlad ng bansa. Maraming kalokohan nga daw ang natanggal na si Najib. Yung Feb 1986 rebolusyon, ay naku, kahihiyan sa kasaysayan ng bansa. Gumawa ng illegal na paraan para matanggal ang nakaluklok na presidente noon. Tapos ang hilig ng mga "dilawin talaga...
  • ChinoF on Should expensive private schools like the Ateneo de Manila and De La Salle be banned?One other thing is that private schools have more leeway in their curriculum than public schools. They have only a minimum of items to comply with as set by the education department, and can require their own courses, such as religion, on students (they can insert their partisan biases here). Public schools on the other hand strictly follow the education department curriculum. Perhaps this link can explain more, even about the Philippine situation. Quality issues can depend on the specific country. For example, in a link I provided in my comment above, public schools in the U.S. are favored more...
  • Random citizen on Should expensive private schools like the Ateneo de Manila and De La Salle be banned?Pardon, but I would sorely disagree with the opinion of banning private schools in the Philippines. At least, in our current state. Based on the average quality of our public schools right now, no I don't think private schools should be banned. At present, our teachers are severely underpaid, which could lead to lower quality output. Our teachers don't entirely run on goodwill and posterity's sake, they still need money to go by their daily lives and their families. I'm not dissing out on public schools just because, but there is some root problem that we really need to address...
  • Random citizen on Should expensive private schools like the Ateneo de Manila and De La Salle be banned?I agree with this answer. Private schools tend to have more funding than Public schools here, which are sorely neglected by our government. However, if I may add, among the private schools, the "Elite" ones like Ateneo and La Salle have two more advantages: brand and connections. Brand... everybody sees it as some sort of guarantee that everybody from the "Elite" schools will produce "better" graduates than other "generic products". As for connections, alma maters usually stick together. And for the "Elite" schools it holds true. They could easily get referrals to companies from upperclassmen who already work at said...
  • Kyle McKay on Should expensive private schools like the Ateneo de Manila and De La Salle be banned?The main difference is quality. The public system has very little resources and struggles to insure adequate education of its students. The private schools tend not to have that issue, they need money they just up the rates.

  • 55Hyden007Toro77777.777 on Should expensive private schools like the Ateneo de Manila and De La Salle be banned?I don't believe in banning those elitist private schools. However, I believe in improving the Quality of public school education. There are many ways to improve public schools, to be on par with those elitist private schools. U.P. is an example of a public university, that has gone down in its quality. It is because, it is caught up in liberalism and leftist ideology. So, students, who should be studying their lessons, are busy demonstrating for leftist political agendas. U.P. as a university, was politicized by the Aquino Cojuangco political axis. Most of us are products of public school education....
  • salagintong bukid on Should expensive private schools like the Ateneo de Manila and De La Salle be banned?why not? private and public achools should be banned those infected with communist teachings.
  • d_forsaken on Should expensive private schools like the Ateneo de Manila and De La Salle be banned?There are those who feel that the world is ultimately moving closer to Truth and to prosperity as the times evolve; then there are those who feel that it is ultimately moving farther away from Truth and into self-destruction. From this, and if it were really that simplistic, one might get the impression that life gravitates slightly into two types of people whom which are diametrically opposed in spirit.

  • d_forsaken on Don’t be quick to imagine parallels between Najib “ouster” in Malaysia and the 1986 “people power revolution”Welcome to the 21st century cosmopolitan world where biased thoughts preside over unbiased deeds, simple gestures become overrated gossip materials and injustice is a part of long term justice.
  • Robert Haighton on Should expensive private schools like the Ateneo de Manila and De La Salle be banned?Can somebody, please, tell/inform me (or provide a link) what the (main) differences are between private and public schools in PH, besides tuition? In my country all schools are public, although one can choose for a secular or religious based school. Both still are paid for and subsidised by the national government and parents have to cough up tuition each school year. And yes, an atheist can join a school that is based on religion.
  • d_forsaken on Speculations persist as Robredo remains silent on alleged affair with House Rep. Bolet BanalIt is necessary to the happiness of man that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving, it consists in professing to believe what he does not believe.
  • Dick S. O'Rosary on Should expensive private schools like the Ateneo de Manila and De La Salle be banned?If the yellows seriously think that the election of the new government is EDSA inspired, this should serve as a clarion call for them. I'll make my profile picture black to protest this.
  • ChinoF on Should expensive private schools like the Ateneo de Manila and De La Salle be banned?Even in the U.S., private schools are being questioned. I see this as liberalism done right. So you want equality of education. So why are there a lot of schools given too much leeway in having different standards from public schools? Nationalizing education might help solve this by requiring all schools to be on the same page. There's also the issue where people, especially irate parents, are questioning the expensive requirements. This is not just in tuition, but materials. For example, instead of using standardized books, a teacher will require their own authored book for class. Another class in the...
  • Andiflip on Should expensive private schools like the Ateneo de Manila and De La Salle be banned?All schools should us the same curricula, that will get rid of the inequality.. Public schools teaching English is an example when most the teachers are not fully conversant.. at one school here in the province the Principle is an English Major yet cannot carry out a conversation in English.. how about other subjects.. probably the same..
  • 67Hyden007Toro9999.888 on Speculations persist as Robredo remains silent on alleged affair with House Rep. Bolet Banal@Robert Haighton: "What a government official does in his/her free/spare time is personal and private." Sorry, Mr. Haighton, I disagree on this; if I find a Lady Senator fornicating on the streets, in her spare time. Would I not be outraged ? How would you like to be judged, by a lady judge, whom you saw fornicating on the streets ? I believe in morality in public office. These people are our public servants; and they must behave well, while in office. I don't believe in organized religion. However, I was with the Roman Catholic Church, for a long time....
  • Robert Haighton on Speculations persist as Robredo remains silent on alleged affair with House Rep. Bolet BanalYes correct, prostitution is legal in the Netherlands. That has a lot of benefits. Now the girls have to pay income tax and they can be better protected (human trafficking). What any government official does in his/her free/spare time, is personal and private. Mr. Hyden, I know all those things you mentioned. It seems you take pride in it that the RC church is still very strong politically in PH. And if you are/do then pls be aware: that strength and power they have, will limit the country to progress. It will keep your country backwards. Unless of course that...
  • 22Hyden007Toro98768998.21 on Speculations persist as Robredo remains silent on alleged affair with House Rep. Bolet Banal@Robert Haighton: Not in our country. Our government officials, are governed by ethics and morality, while in office. It is called : immorality. Government officials can be removed, if they violate these code of ethics and morality. Maybe, in your Dutch country, government officials can just do their things, while in government offices. Anyway, prostitution is legal in Netherlands. I had seen prostitutes, selling themselves in some open window views, in the Amsterdam red light district. In America, former Pres. Bill Clinton, was impeached in the U.S. House of Representative, by having oral sex, with White House intern: Monica Liewenski,...
  • 22Hyden007Toro98768998.21 on Lray and Migz Villafuerte Win 2018 Douchebag Governors AwardPoliticians can award themselves , anything, to promote their political agendas. Voters, must be vigilant on these kinds of politicians. They must be voted out of office, or removed. Kick these bastards out ! The money they used on these projects, are our taxpayers' money. You and I paid for them. If our money is stolen; we have the full right to be outraged, and demand these thieves, to be jailed or hanged. Their properties must be confiscated. We are the people. We are strong, if we aggressively pursue the full accounting, of where our money was spent in any...
  • 33Hyden007Toro54321.567 on Don’t be quick to imagine parallels between Najib “ouster” in Malaysia and the 1986 “people power revolution”It is just a case of one party, defeated , another party in an election. To compare it, to the 1986 EDSA coup d' etat, by the Aquino Cojuangco political axis, with the aid of the U.S. State Department is ridiculous. There was no 1986 EDSA revolution. It was just a political propaganda of the Aquinos and the Cojuangcos, peddled by their prostituted and paid media, to delude all of us. This is the grave mistake of the YellowTards. They think, that the world has not moved, since 1986. They think that the gullible Filipinos , think the same way,...
  • monk on How Apo Jim Paredes contradicts himself todayFrom 2006: "Like many among the disillusioned middle class who once yearned and fought for democracy, Paredes now believes that Filipinos need a strong leader. 'The democracy that we experienced cannot deliver,' he says. 'I don’t think the people care very much what the form is. You could put a strong leader there, who bends rules a little bit. I think you could take that as long as the outcome is good.”" http://pcij.org/stories/jim-paredes/
  • Robert Haighton on Speculations persist as Robredo remains silent on alleged affair with House Rep. Bolet BanalIt really doesnt require/take money nor power to have sex with another person. Sometimes, just good looks will do the job or just plain lust. And I thank god on my knees that I live in a country where people are not obsessed with morality, ethics and what the church says. As you can see, Hyden, people dont those commandments very seriously. And if Rebredo did have sex with another person, it is still her business and a private, personal one, no matter what her title or profession is. Even when Duterte has sex with someone who he is not...
