Filipinos’ rotten politics mirror their inability to look FORWARD

Many Filipinos are too caught up with what the Philippines should “never” be or “never” suffer again. It’s become a popular political fashion statement.

Malaysia and the Philippines: corruption and cheating are all part of ‘the game’

While I was reading news about Malaysia’s recently-concluded election, I could not help but shake my head; it was as if I was reading about the Philippines.

The cherry on a pile of BS: Noynoy Aquino comfy in bed with the Malaysian police state

What is the government of Philippine President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III doing in bed with a police state like Malaysia to begin with?
