Will Mar Roxas Be The Next Philippine President?

I think if some American blogger living in PH can come up with a post saying Secretary of Interior and Local Government Mar Roxas will win the Presidential election in 2016 purely based on professional guesswork, perhaps I can do better just by reviewing what I think I know about winning elections and Filipino voting […]

An Argument for a Binay Presidency

So, my former boss and good friend Ferdie were drinking beer last night at Eton Centris when talk eventually came around to the supposed inevitability of a Binay Presidency. One argument that is going around is that all candidates for the presidency are corrupt in one way or the other. That being the case, it […]

Black To The Future

In my previous post, you’ll see a picture of Darth Vader with the words, “Voting is pointless. It is useless to resist me. I am your leader now.” It’s really a reference to what some have been saying about Vice President Jejomar Binay and that is, mainly, that he will win… …some say “by default”, […]

Did VP Jejomar Binay Just Lose All His Credibility?

So the debate between Vice President Jejomar “Jojo” Binay and Senator Antonio “Sonny” Trillanes IV won’t push through, eh?

I think […]

Did Mar Roxas Really Hire An American Political Strategist for 2016 Presidential Bid?

Citing at least three sources ABS-CBN News dot Com reveals that Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas recruited American political strategist Paul Bograd to help him enhance his public image — conceivably to bolster any chance he has in winning as a Presidential candidate in the 2016 elections. If at all people take this bit […]

The Senate Blue Ribbon Committee will resume its investigation into the P10 Billion Pork Barrel Funds scam this morning and it is expected that Ruby Tuason will come up with more controversial revelations — not that we haven’t heard them before.
