Manila’s gated communities should be opened to public access to alleviate traffic

Gated communities, like jeepneys, are stopgap measures that became institutionalised and so ingrained in the national psyche that, as we see in the general tone of the debate surrounding this issue, people simply find it next to impossible to comprehend the cancerous nature of their existence. They are legacies of a succession of weak and […]

Jejomar Binay: Unworthy to be President

Jejomar Binay has criticized P-Noy for being dictatorial like Ferdinand Marcos in the context of the impeachment of the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Renato Corona, whose appointment at the eleventh hour of then outgoing administration was highly questionable, by the former President, GMA, whose mandate was just as spurious (“Hello Garci”).

Jejomar Binay is the Mutt to Beat

As much as I hate to admit it, Jejomar Binay is the mutt to beat in the 2016 presidential elections just because of the demography of stupidity in the Philippines to which Binay is the consummate pimp.

Jejomar Binay’s move to criticize Noynoy Aquino is part of democratic process

Philippine Vice President Jejomar Binay is a free man, at least for now. Lately, Binay has been using that freedom to advance his causes.

Those who think that Binay should stop criticizing the performance of the current government under President […]

Grace Poe’s Honesty Play Does Not Cut It For Her
