The Big Lie: Senator Bong Revilla’s disgusting privilege speech before the Philippine Senate

The notion of siring 38 children (“officially acknowledged” or as much at 72 children, including unrecognized ones) with different women is not only irresponsible but downright perverted. Hence, I couldn’t help but puke at the sight of the old man (Nardong Putik himself) cry on cue, looking the part of the beaten underdog, while his […]

I have mixed feelings about impeaching President Noynoy Aquino

I hear a lot of talk about impeaching President Noynoy Aquino. Well, it’s not really surprising considering all the badness of his administration being highlighted lately. I mean, here’s a guy who promised the sky back in 2010 and all we get four years down the track is a yellow shirt and a bunch of […]

Bong Revilla’s lesson: Dealing with President Noynoy Aquino is like dealing with the Devil himself

I wonder what it would take for the Filipino people to finally wake-up from their stupor. One catastrophic event after another has been happening in the country lately but the rest of Philippine society seems unaffected and continue with their lives and celebrate annual festivities like everything is okay. It is mind-boggling to see how […]

So Philippine Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr today has concluded his privilege speech before the Senate where he supposedly aired his side following his being implicated in allegations of pork barrel thievery surrounding alleged scam leader Janet Lim Napoles. Did we learn anything new from the speech? It seems none — other than that Revilla […]

Does the government of President Noynoy Aquino govern? Or does it MERELY spin?

In a rare stroke of balance, “social news network” site Rappler published the scholarly work of eminent sociologist Nicole Curato, “a post-doctoral research fellow at the Center for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance at the Australian National University” according to the short bio included at the foot of her article The President as spin doctor. […]

Ph Ombudsman website hacked, Anonymous claims responsibility

The recent cyber-attacks, this time against the websites of the Philippines’ Office of the Ombudsman reflect a growing frustration among Filipinos over the failure of the government President Benigno Simeon “BS” Aquino III to live up to its big campaign promises. Conviction rates have declined under the watch of Conchita Carpio Morales who took over […]

President Noynoy Aquino acts like he is above the law and spends public funds without Congress approval

Philippine President Benigno Simeon “BS” Aquino has so far been very good at playing the “victim card” and the “blame-game” during his term. In fact, he comes from a long line of Aquinos who make it a point to emphasize that they are being persecuted. They do this to get public support. The victim-mentality could […]
