Positive should never be used to cover the Negative up

In the recent elections, supporters from the sides of the Marcos and Aquino (Mar-Leni camp) camps traded barbs using one very typical argument: achievements. People defend Marcos saying, despite the father’s corruption and Martial Law abuse, he has achievements, such as infrastructure, 13th month, and more. The same is used by Aquino supporters, that despite […]

Why coal-minded Duterte is on the wrong side of history

In about 4 billion years from now, the Sun will leave the main sequence and will evolve into a Red Giant. While this stellar evolution is a spectacular cosmic phenomenon, it marks as well the complete annihilation of life on Earth. But long before that, in only about half a billion years, “the Sun gets […]

The Top 5 Achievements Of President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino

Well, here we go again with President Benigno Simeon “BS” Aquino trumpeting his alleged achievements in the last six years. He even goes as far as to claim that “no one can top his achievements” and both he and his followers continue to believe that he was the “best president the Philippines has ever had”. […]

3 Uncomfortable Similarities Between President Noynoy Aquino And Adolf Hitler

Okay, before I begin, I’d like to note that I’m writing this as a reaction to the way President Aquino and many of his allies in the LP seem to brand people they don’t like as “Nazis”.

Rodrigo Duterte presidency will highlight Noynoy Aquino’s incompetence

Congratulations are in order to Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte for his phenomenal win as the next Philippine President. I don’t think even he anticipated he was going to win or even if he did, he probably didn’t think he was going to win by more than 6 million votes. His numbers have surpassed that […]

It is with courage that we salute Rodrigo Duterte, the Philippines’ new Chief Executive!

If a landslide vote catapulted now-President-elect Rodrigo Duterte to power, that same landslide vote did not influence the composition of Congress which remains utterly dominated by Liberal Party stalwarts. Indeed, amazingly enough, Franklin Drilon is set to keep his seat in the Senate despite being one of the most rabid of President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ […]

Confessions in the lead up to the 2016 Philippine elections

It has been a year since I started writing under a pseudonym. My main impetus was really to be able to talk freely and participate in online political discussions. When you have friends and family who currently or previously worked in government, it is more considerate to go by an alias when you are airing […]

3 Big Things That Will Happen Should A Duterte-Marcos Tandem Win The 2016 Election

Tension and excitement continues to rise as election day edges ever closer. Already, the LP is playing every hand it can to bring down the opposition but it’s quite clear that anything they do now simply amounts to shoveling sand against an oncoming tidal wave. Heck, President Aquino even claims that he’ll start another People […]
