5 Big Reasons Why President Aquino Will Always Be A Loser

Before I begin, I’d like to say that I don’t really enjoy making personal attacks. I mean c’mon, it’s petty and unfair in a number of ways. Unfortunately, with the way things are, I think I’m going to have to resort to more brutal methods of verbal combat. Ladies and gentlemen, let me tell you […]

3 Of The Biggest Ways Mar Roxas Doomed His Own Presidential Campaign

It’s almost April ladies and gentlemen and it seems like that this year’s election is going to be an exciting one. This is especially true for our presidential candidates who just recently had quite a spectacular debate on TV. It was very interesting to see three of the candidates jostle against one another through intellect […]

Insane Mar Roxas comic book proves he is the true historical revisionist

Interesting that lobbing charges of “historical revisionism” upon vice presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos has become a popular fashion statement amongst pro-administration “activists”. Leading the charge is the faculty of the Ateneo de Manila University which recently thrust the esteemed Jesuit-run institution of learning into the partisan fray after 400 of its members signed a statement […]

3 Big Reasons ‘Tuwid Na Daan’ Will Probably Win The 2016 Election Anyway

There was quite a bit of excitement over the second presidential debates not long ago. Indeed, I found it both fun and thought-provoking how some of the candidates, namely Rodrigo Duterte and Grace Poe, jostled against one another’s intellect and wit.

What are these fuckin’ cretins talking about? If honesty were suddenly introduced into American life, the whole system would collapse!” He might as […]

Don’t thank PNoy: Economic growth does not necessarily mean good governance!

Lately I’ve been seeing these posts thanking the president for increasing our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by something like 120 billion USD. It upsets me because it betrays a piss poor understanding of economics. I’ll give you two reasons why this thinking is wrong — because two is more than enough. First and foremost, the […]

Daang Matuwid brought the Philippines straight down the highway to hell

Daang Matuwid. What the hell does it mean? Its literal translation in English is “straight path”. Without any context, it does not make a lot of sense. Straight path to where, exactly? However, its ambiguity helped launch the Presidency of a non-performing lawmaker Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III back in 2010. A lot of people […]

Sideways

We’re a country of people going sideways, or so it seems. It would have been great if Noynoy Aquino truly represented the straight (and narrow) path because his rise to the presidency could perhaps be taken as some sign that a significant number of Filipinos have actually wised up. Thing is, neither Noynoy nor most […]
