  • salagintong bukid on Is it right for Filipinos to spam-vote Duterte into the @TIME 100 Most Influential list?in appointing barangay officials, how could it damage democracy? where the objective is to take out those officials involved in drugs and corruptions. where's the logic there?
  • salagintong bukid on Is it right for Filipinos to spam-vote Duterte into the @TIME 100 Most Influential list?president duterte's admin cannot amend the 87 constitution. why, because those who committed crimes under the constitution will walk away. even switching to federalism isn't a good idea right away. clean-up first then switch to fedaralism. if they're going to amend the 87 constitution, take out and correct the biases. it should be for the people and not just for those who's in power....AMEN!
  • marius on Is it right for Filipinos to spam-vote Duterte into the @TIME 100 Most Influential list?@salagintong bukid: you could start by not saying "amen" to every bullshit statement you see on facebook. Filipinos despise everything that Christianity stands for. Do you honestly think God is going to pat you on the head and reward you while you lie, cheat, steal, and kill? While you desecrate his creation by cutting down forests, cutting big holes in the ground, and spraying poisons everywhere? Drop the hypocrisy and and pride, and show some humility before God. Then you might start moving up, instead of wallowing in hell.
  • 44Toro007Hyden567543.99999 on Is it right for Filipinos to spam-vote Duterte into the @TIME 100 Most Influential list?Sure, the Hacienda Luisita was grabbed by the Cojuangcos. It was purchased by Filipinos: blood , sweat and tears...Ownership of these lands, other than the true owners: the farmers, is ill gotten wealth... However, the Cojuangcos, together with the Aquinos, used their political power and influence...to illegitimately own these lands. Land grabbing at its worst case !

  • salagintong bukid on Is it right for Filipinos to spam-vote Duterte into the @TIME 100 Most Influential list?the administration should just ignore its detractors and proceed for a better Nation. the pilipinos cannot waste a minute of it. we have to move on as fast we could. we're already delayed 30 years compare to our asean neighbors. get rid of criminalities, drugs, and graft and corruptions....Amen!
  • 707Hyden007Toro999999.9999 on Is it right for Filipinos to spam-vote Duterte into the @TIME 100 Most Influential list?I don't think, it will matter, even if Pres. Duterte will make the top list of the Time's Magazine's 100 most influential people. Pinoy Pride people will be jumping with joy, because, they will attach themselves to Pres. Duterte, to "share his honors"... Leni Robredo, Trillanes, Aquino, Mar Roxas and the rest of the YellowTards, will be full of envy, that they were not even been mentioned. Inspite of the fact, that they believe thermselves, to be "fighting for Human Rights" in the Philippines. The Aquino Cojuangco political axis will be very much disappointed, that their strategies and tactics to...
  • David Roxas on Is it right for Filipinos to spam-vote Duterte into the @TIME 100 Most Influential list?I don't think these polls matter much in the long run. Back in 2007 4-Chan spam voted founder Moot to the top of an online Time poll but nothing happened. Made them feel better though and gave them a laugh. Same here I'd imagine. The power of the vote is such an illusion that it makes people think their voice counts. While it may "count" it never "counts" because the status quo remains the same. "Do we use our vast population to contribute to humanity’s collective intellect? " Didn't the Philippines make into the Guiness book of records for the...
  • Dick S. O'Rosary on Is it right for Filipinos to spam-vote Duterte into the @TIME 100 Most Influential list?From a different perspective, perhaps this "spamming" is just the "average Joe's" way of showing support for the administration, knowing full well that some sectors have been trying to "destabilize" it.
  • marius on Is it right for Filipinos to spam-vote Duterte into the @TIME 100 Most Influential list?If Filipinos could put as much effort into improving reality as they exert on superficialities, self-promotion, and glossing over the truth, the country might be a much nicer place to live in.
  • Tokwa on Go forward with Duterte, or slide backward with the Liberal Party – Filipinos are left little choice@Robert Haighton You're generalizing too much and most of your arguments have flaws. "based on my experiences IN your country, based on conversations with Filipinos and based on laws, rules, regulations and the culture and religion in your country, Filipinos dont have choices." How come? Kindly provide an example. "Therefore, it is hard (but still not impossible) to have a better life today compared to yesterday." IMHO it is still a choice, unfortunately it is only a hard choice. "How come that so many male Filippinos leave their GFs (behind) with kids? And why do those women (or girls) accept...
  • Ngek Ngek on How @rapplerdotcom triggered the decline of journalism in the PhilippinesAnother romantically simplistic analysis. One call never get to power if on is a smart. He must be smart enough to be in position of power. It is the illusion that is created in the man with power that makes him a fool to others. People with power in the Philippines have rightly or wrongly think they can abuse their power because they can pay lawyers to fight and with their cases in courts. That is why an Estelito Mendoza or a Sigfrid Fortun are filthy rich.
  • Ngek Ngek on How @rapplerdotcom triggered the decline of journalism in the PhilippinesThat is too simplistic an analysis. Propaganda in war is both a science and an an art with the object of beating or destroying the enemy short of violence.

  • d_forsaken on How @rapplerdotcom triggered the decline of journalism in the PhilippinesAlways remember...Rumors are carried by haters, spread by fools, and accepted by idiots.
  • d_forsaken on Leni Robredo epitomises the deep impoverishment of Philippine societyPeople, like that so-called "VP" Maria Leonor "Leni" Santo Tomas Robredo, and that so- called "spokesperson" Georgina Hernandez, that complains all the time about problems are the one's that need to fix their problems. None of the Failipinos in the Failippines know how to fix themselves, at least not entirely, not well enough.
  • Greg on Go forward with Duterte, or slide backward with the Liberal Party – Filipinos are left little choiceI don't believe Filipinos have many choices in life, which is evidenced by the fact that one out of ten Filipinos work outside the country to make a living. I watch the Filipino channels and ads come on about money services to send money back home. This almost seems to be celebrated, when it should be an embarrassment.
  • 707Hyden007Toro239876.99999 on How @rapplerdotcom triggered the decline of journalism in the PhilippinesThe Philippine Media is evolving into maturity. Politicians can no longer spread, disinformation or force their political agendas into the throats of Filipinos. The Trolls are a peculiar writers. Whereby , a common citizen, who knows how to use the Web Blogs, can have a say in the governance of our country. They can also criticize any government official, without fear of reprisal. They can blog their opinions, no matter how stupid, they can be... In the Web Blogs; it is the readers, who decide to agree or not to agree, of what is written. It facilitates people to think,...
  • salagintong bukid on How @rapplerdotcom triggered the decline of journalism in the Philippinespresident duterte need not to wait for the pilipinos globally to cry 'DECLARE MARTIAL LAW'. it's the only way to stop detractors for a better Philippines. the pilipinos globally will support that 100%.
  • toby manuguid on Why some foreigners would rather go hungry than eat Filipino foodbecause almost all filipinp cuisine uses salt w/c oz very bad for the health, cant cook without salt Anf are quite oily ( lsgong mslonsng ) la pko nbalitaan n filipino food niluto sa olive pil
  • goldman's sack on Leni Robredo epitomises the deep impoverishment of Philippine societyThere was a commenter here on GRP who said Pinoys hate Leni Robredo more than they love Duterte. This is a very important point that I think Duterte himself doesn't understand. The anger against Leni Robredo is not about Duterte. Rather, it is a burning, overflowing rage against a clueless but ambitious puppet who has become the biggest, most shameful symbol of fraud, hypocrisy, injustice, and impunity in the Philippines. Robredo's continued illegal occupancy of the office of the vice president reminds Filipinos every day that: - It is okay to steal government funds and rig an election to install...
  • salagintong bukid on How @rapplerdotcom triggered the decline of journalism in the Philippinesthe pilipinos should support any law to be enacted needed for the country's properity. the people's voice is the law and no one's else. this is the time the pilipinos should voice out what they think should be done. president duterte address the people already. he needs your help.
  • Greg on Has the Philippines EVER been truly a country FOR Filipinos?Correction: acquires not aquires (typo)
  • marius on Has the Philippines EVER been truly a country FOR Filipinos?Baylee: not sure who that was directed at, but you're completely missing the point. Everyone knows that Filipinos entertain themselves by blowing each other away, that the police are basically a gang of criminals, and that this has been going on since forever. However, Duterte does have a high-profile drug war going on and the police happily release their own statistics on the number of suspects killed during raids. Which may or may not be real. The fact remains that the endless blathering about drugs detracts attention from the other 5,682,234 problems that desperately need addressing in this country. Since...
  • d_forsaken on Inquirer writer Jacqueline Arias picks tweets to “prove” Filipinos hate Bongbong MarcosLet's be honest about Failipino journalists in the Failippines: They find a lot of ways of people being wrong.
  • d_forsaken on Has the Philippines EVER been truly a country FOR Filipinos?The problem isn’t that Failipinos in the Failippines can’t read. The problem isn’t even that Failipinos in the Failippines can’t think. The problem is that Failipinos do not know what thinking is; Failipinos confuses it with feeling.
  • d_forsaken on Go forward with Duterte, or slide backward with the Liberal Party – Filipinos are left little choiceFailipinos in the Failippines always say in the end they only regret the choices they didn't make but I really think Failipinos also regret the choices they were foolish enough to make.
  • d_forsaken on Outrage over Leni Robredo’s bimbo antics offer opportunities that require clear minds to exploitIf heaven was created only for the most stupid clown, then Mr Bean could have been the only righteous man on earth.
  • salagintong bukid on How @rapplerdotcom triggered the decline of journalism in the Philippinesall television/movie titles to provoke pilipinos to rebel should not be allowed. and scenes of stabbing/shooting/fist fighting should be edited out. it should be love among pilipinos to learn.
  • salagintong bukid on How @rapplerdotcom triggered the decline of journalism in the Philippinesthese yellows are fantastic. after sending the pilipinos to miserable life to poverty using them to proliferate drugs, now they're using the poor again as victims of injustice. this is what you called 'spin doctors'. the yellow dynasty is the one who send the Philippines into miserable life after that edsa1 gathering. it's not like that during Marcos days.
