  1. As the old adage goes… when the cat’s away, the mice will play. Indeed, the presence/absence of an authentic authority figure can make a world of difference in common-sense-deficient societies like PH.

    To name three major qualities that embody leaders of great tiger economies: they are loved, respected and feared. You will notice Yellow cult politicians consistently fail to pass this litmus test of leadership quality.

    Add parameters such as vision, incorruptibility, and history of proven competence, and you are sure to question yourself: why was I stupid enough to vote for the likes of Noynoy and Leni?

    The good news is – the repentance button is still available ====>[boycott PDI now]

    Manila Times is the best broadsheet in town!

  2. here comes trillanes again, the spin doctor. how could the davao base lady becomes a propaganda of the duterte administration. she was seen with trillanes’ character assassins group of the yellows. the video he trillanes showed is a rehearsed video what the lady should tell. what the administration should do is investigate trillanes pardon if it’s illegal and send him back behind bars…period.

  3. During the Luneta Stand off of the Chinese Tourist Crissis…The coward President Pnoy Aquino, was nowhere to be found. Malacanang Palace is ten (10) minutes drive away from the Luneta Grandstand. The Governor of Hong Kong, China called Aquino; however Aquino refused to answer his call…

    Criminals , Drug Dealers, evil people had a “Fiesta” , during the term of Pnoy Aquino. In truth, they themselves became criminals. Leila de Lima, the Dept. of Justice Secretary, became a drug dealer, took several convict lovers. Mar Roxas, the DILG Secretary, stole the Typhoon Yolanda Funds. Porky Drillon was involved in the facilitation of Pork Barrel Bribery…

    Abaya and his gangs extorted money from arriving and departing passengers, at the Manila International Airport, thru “Lag Lag Bala” extortion scheme…

    Homicide and murder rates increased, because the PNP Chief Purisima, was busy stealing money from the government. Aquino tolerated Purisima, because , himself is corrupt !

  4. Zaxx,
    I really dont get it. Since when is ‘to be loved’ a quality; since when is ‘to be feared’ a quality. Respect is something somebody has to earn and to deserve based on one’s achievement. What has Duterte achieved so far? Because I lay the bar very high, the answer is nothing.

  5. as long as the puppeteer, the yellow pied piper, is out of jail he’ll continue to blow his pipe.

  6. I believe being feared in the Philippines is relevant, because of disorganization and chaos. There needs to be a rule enforcer, who is not corrupt and enforces laws consistently. It is also hard to get accurate data on crime in the Philippines, because of unreported/ unsolved crimes, as well as the high % of criminals who are never arrested.
