Of Dogs And Men: On The Complacency And Gullibility Of Pinoys

My grandfather, Heaven keep his soul, died a few weeks ago after suffering a fatal heart attack in the hospital. He died at the age of 90, an age I suppose some of us here can only envy. Anyway, truth be told, he was never really my grandfather by blood. An American from North Carolina, […]

COMELEC SOCE Debacle: ‘Sovereign will of the people’ is NOT a valid argument @commrguanzon!

There is something fundamentally wrong about Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon’s defense of the decision of the COMELEC en banc to bend election rules to accomodate the Liberal Party’s late submission of its Statement of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCE).

The Rodrigo Duterte presidency could be besieged by a hostile Congress and power-hungry Leni Robredo!

A study conducted by the Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) on the bobotante (stupid voter) phenomenon that plagues Philippine politics sought to test a hypothesis commonly-held amongst the Philippines’ “thinking classes” — that it is primarily impoverished voters (the majority of Filipinos) that are inclined to vote stupid. The results published in an Inquirer report […]

A round of applause please for our very own Manny Pacquiao for his latest victory against Timothy Bradley. Indeed, he truly deserves some congratulations for his efforts.

No Justice For The Filipino People Under Aquino Administration!

Ladies and gentlemen, I was recently notified about an issue regarding our countrymen who are voting outside the Philippines.
