Que horror! President Noynoy Aquino was not invited to the Typhoon Yolanda commemoration!

Actually, he was. Malacañang talking head Sonny Coloma, of course, would like us to believe that there was no invitation, therefore BS Aquino was not able to attend. Parang patampo pa nga ata eh. (It was almost like he was pouting that there was no invitation.) Instead, on that day, November 8, BS Aquino was […]

3 Defensive Tactics Commonly Used By The Liberal Party of the Philippines

Politics is a dirty business no matter where you go in the world. Even a nation as ideal as Sweden has problems with political corruption and no country has ever found a permanent and consequence-free solution for poverty. However, many of the problems in the latter part of the 20th century continue to plague the […]

Why the Current Philippine Republic Needs to Die

When President Corazon Aquino established the Fifth Philippine Republic in 1987, she set forth a new constitution that in theory would eliminate the “excesses” of previous administrations. Foremost among these was the “Martial Law” clause that, in the event that a seated President would declare it, would allow it to pass through Congress first; Post-Marcos, this was […]

Pnoy: Mar Roxas Helped Yolanda Victims More Than Jojo Binay

The country’s best known PR practitioner Charlie Agatep brought up what I feel is an important issue when it comes to natural calamities and the work of politicians/government functionaries.

Is Being Broken now a Part of the Filipino Identity?

Everyone in Manila was probably infuriated with the metro-wide traffic jam that saw some tired, sleep-deprived and hungry workers trapped on the road for 5 hours. It’s a good thing we haven’t heard anything like another Rolito Go. Corollary to this is how broken the transport services are: the MRT which has fewer trains than […]

So Where Is The ‘Straight Path’ Headed?

You can read the Tagalog version of this article here… Ladies and gentlemen, it is 2015. Just a few more months from now before 2016 comes along and we will be given the opportunity to select a new leader that can lead us to progress. The problem is, so far though, where have we gotten […]

The next President of the Philippines should respect the Rule of Law for the country to progress

The Philippines’ current list of “potential” candidates is very disappointing. Most of them are from the same crop of bozos from the country’s current ruling class. Their membership to this “elite” club means they are first loyal to their families and friends before they are loyal to the country and its people in general. Therefore, […]

Unwinnable Mar Roxas dooms Liberal Party of the Philippines

It’s really pathetic the way presidential candidate Mar Roxas scrounges around for some sucker willing to run as Vice President with him under the Liberal Party (LP) banner. Indeed, it’s the height of pathos that he’d actually issue such a proposal to Senator Grace Poe, who currently tops popularity polls and will likely beat Roxas […]
