It’s time for Trillanes to seek political asylum in the United States to escape Duterte

It might be time for “senator” Antonio Trillanes to seek political asylum in the United States. After all, he sees himself as “persecuted” and the subject of attempts to “silence” him.

Filipinos need to make a choice: Bomb Marawi City to the ground or sustain more military casualties

The battle for Marawi City is degrading into a protracted stalemate between Philippine government troops and Maute terrorists holed up in buildings in the city centre.

This is where conservatism resonates — it offers a straight path (in the real sense of […]

What did the women in the #WomensMarch rallies REALLY want?

Ahhh, the perenial question: What do women want? I hear a lot of my male friends ask this question. It seems we like to spend a lot of time and energy verbalizing our issues and then get upset when our partners contribute to the conversation in their usual infernal “solution mode”.
