  • marius on No Single Driver rule on EDSA is sweet revenge for Manila’s long-suffering commuting publicNo, Filipinos failed democracy. They've never even tried it.
  • Oratio Imperata on No Single Driver rule on EDSA is sweet revenge for Manila’s long-suffering commuting publicTOTAL FAIL ! Martial Rule is good for Filipinos because democracy failed them. Filipinos have been testing and playing with democracy since I arrived in the Philippines and nothing happened. It is same o corrupt and crookery. If Democracy fails, try communism. It may work. Provided they have a good dictator.
  • Darth Mortis on No Single Driver rule on EDSA is sweet revenge for Manila’s long-suffering commuting publicThis is another DUMB comment. I dunno why the solution is always more martial law. What makes you think the next filipino dictator wont be another Marcos? Another CHAVEZ ? Another KIM JUN UN??? LAZY BLUNT FORCE THINKING. FAIL Taxes the rich evil drivers paid were STOLEN. Those were supposed to be used to build ROADS. We are 30 years BEHIND in infrastructure that's why we are always building. Why don't we just go into military rule and be like NORTH KOREA?!?!? That seems to be your thinking. FAIL!
  • Oratio Imperata on Should Filipino thought leaders communicate in ‘maka-masa’ style or in proper English?Filipinos measure intelligence by the English they speak. Filipinos measure beauty by the color of the skin. Filipinos measure wealth by their pot bellies.
  • Oratio Imperata on Mocha Uson’s followers have a responsibility to keep Mocha Uson honest and progressiveThere is one thing I love Filipinos, they steal to help the American Economy. How? They send their loot to the U.S. What is bad for Philippines is good for American Economy. Filipinos are charitable. Driving habits of Filipinos is truly incomprehensible. Filipinos in the U.S. drive slow in the fast lane and fast in the slow lane. They mostly drive Toyotas and Hondas their luxury car of choice. When they shop they always have someone left to watch over their Toyotas and Hondas.
  • 7676Hyden007Toro99896.21 on Mocha Uson’s followers have a responsibility to keep Mocha Uson honest and progressive@Oratio Imperata: The criminals, the Filipinos who are law breakers, are mostly not punished. Just look at our highways, how Filipinos drive. They drive as if they own the road. Most of the Police look the other way...Look at our Politicians, who steal from public funds. They are not punished. Even people who facilitated in cheating in national elections. Like former COMELEC Chief Andres Bautista, are rewarded. Bautista has several banking accounts of multi million pesos. He is not even investigated, and is now enjoying his loots in the U.S. Start jailing and hanging/executing these bad people. You will surely...
  • ChinoF on Why ‘Who Sings This ? ‘ Is Usually A Dumb QuestionWhen it comes to Take On Me, I still like it, lol, but not as a rabid favorite. I'm more into learning the riffs to play. So that's some I've been doing lately after downloading Walk band and other music-making apps on my phone, so I got to play a bit of Enola Gay, Feels Like Heaven, But Not Tonight, I Like Chopin, and The Final Countdown. Not the complete songs, though. But it's a start until I could get a real keyboard and resume practice, since I had keyboard lessons in the 90s. And also, learning again music theory...
  • ChinoF on More Filipinos would take public transport if sando and shorts are deemed acceptable attireExcellent satire, well crafted that people may not get it: public transport is so bad that you don't wear your uniforms or business attire while riding them. Jeepneys are so open, you could get splashed on, buses have such dirty seats that your uniforms get soiled. Either you bring your work clothes separately or leave them at the office and change into them when you get there. But I do like Benign0's point too that we'd better ditch formal wear and really go casual. Thanks to the IT business, casual wear became common. Hooray for casual. Say, at least Lindybiege...
  • Oratio Imperata on Mocha Uson’s followers have a responsibility to keep Mocha Uson honest and progressiveI was in Los Angeles, California. I went to this place called West Covina particularly in Amar. You see mass of Filipinos there. They are snobbing at each other. They do not acknowledge each other. Each Filipinos think they are better than the Filipino next to them. Each poor Filipinos think they are being looked down upon. Filipinos function well if they are not in Filipino community. If Filipinos are gathered together they become splintered. West Covina is an epitome of Filipinos that they cannot coalesce.
  • Oratio Imperata on Mocha Uson’s followers have a responsibility to keep Mocha Uson honest and progressiveFilipinos seems to be "concerned" about Mocha Uson's behavior when they should look at themselves if their behavior mirrors that of Mocha Uson. What I see is Filipinos are Mocha Uson and the Mocha Usons in Filipinos wanted Mocha Uson to behave like an angel when Filipinos are not. Get real, Filipinos. WHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT?
  • Oratio Imperata on Mocha Uson’s followers have a responsibility to keep Mocha Uson honest and progressiveThere is nothing wrong with Filipinos present form of government. THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH FILIPINOS! I took a sampling of OFWs and self-exiled immigrant Filipinos abroad and studied their behaviours. Here are what I found: 1. Filipinos are good upright law-abiding citizens in Muslim countries; 2. Filipinos are good upright law-abiding citizens in Parliamentary government of UK 3. Filipinos are good upright law-abiding citizens in Federal form of government in the U.S. 4. Filipinos are good upright law-abiding citizens in Shinto-God Japan 5. Filipinos are good upright law-abiding citizens in Communist China Filipinos can adapt to any form of...
  • Oratio Imperata on No Single Driver rule on EDSA is sweet revenge for Manila’s long-suffering commuting publicHere are the constants in road widening: 1. Build it and we will drive solo 2. Widen it, we also drive solo 3. Build more of it, the more people drive If you add all of the above principle the result is GRIDLOCK !!! Solution: MARTIAL LAW. Ban private vehicles during weekdays. If there is MARTIAL LAW. People protest because they'd rather be stuck in Gridlock than have Martial Law. As if there is a solution of Gridlock outside of Martial Law. Filipinos should realize that they cannot ram a square peg in a round hole. Unfortunately, majority of Filipinos...
  • sarda on Ninoy is NOT a hero: Let’s rename NAIA back to “Manila International Airport”Just place the letter M last so it becomes IAM.
  • Oratio Imperata on More Filipinos would take public transport if sando and shorts are deemed acceptable attireEQ is for those who failed IQ EQ is intelligence social net for low-IQ High-IQ fails EQ hands-down It is also clear as day high-IQ are arrogant and abrasive. Because high-IQs do not have patience to wait on low-IQs. And high-EQ wanted understanding from high-IQ.
  • Tobias on No Single Driver rule on EDSA is sweet revenge for Manila’s long-suffering commuting publicYour comment is so dumb. Buy a mask. Lol. Why don’t I go on a treadmill? Which do you think is much cheaper, Einstein? And the body is designed to walk. Don't tell me you need to drive to reach a store that is a few yards away? Walking outside in Manila is HAZARDOUS to your health. Commuting is HAZARDOUS to your health. So is driving. Chcck the statistics. Your point? You might as well live in a literal bubble your entire life. ~chuckle~ If I work hard for my car and pay taxes more than the average JUAN TAMAD...

  • Tobias on More Filipinos would take public transport if sando and shorts are deemed acceptable attireCheck the population. Look at China. At 1.4 billion people, it still got an average IQ of 105. Then look at Australia. With a population 24 million, the average IQ is 98. Intelligent Quotient (I.Q.) does not represent/measure the ability of people or a person. Still, it has remained a good measure to determine how a person will do in both academics and real world activities. Science keeps on showing us this. And this is why IQ remains despite all the hype on EQ.
  • interxavier on Kickoff For The 2018 NFL Regular Season Is Almost HereI'm out of the loop but is American Football even popular here in the Philippines? I barely hear anybody talk about it.
  • Gogs on Kickoff For The 2018 NFL Regular Season Is Almost HereWe both grew up with different traditions and values and that is the world bro.
  • sarda on Filipino-style ‘labour activism’ makes Filipino workers poorer rather than richerThe first mentality that must be change is the "paasa-asa sa awa" mentality. The worst thing that have develop among the poor is that they have learned to exploit your pity and compassion, that if you are not going to give anything to them then you are easily accuse of being a very bad and cruel person.
  • sarda on Mayor Tommy Osmeña And The Dopesickness of Cebu CityChange the country's currency. If the drug lord put all his money in the bank it will become obvious where did all the money came from, if not, all the money he stash somewhere will suddenly have no value.
  • Oratio Imperata on Filipino-style ‘labour activism’ makes Filipino workers poorer rather than richerPhilippines is not industralized nation. IT IS NEITHER AN AGRICULTURAL COUNTRY because Philippines smuggle rice from Vietnam and Thailand because they cannot produce it. They also smuggle Apples, Garlic, Onions. No industry. No agriculture. Only drugs. That is why Filipinos are happy. It is fun in the Philippines.
  • Oratio Imperata on Filipino-style ‘labour activism’ makes Filipino workers poorer rather than richerYES. A hero should not pay Taxes. Pacquiao made Filipinos good for free. Making them feel good and proud for free is non-taxable. Pacquaio is the best thing that ever happened to Filipinos because Filipinos have no life-altering contributions to the world. Filipinos also love Pacquiao because Pacquiao is uneducated like them. Like, Boxing, it is education-optional. Its skills can be derived from prison rumble and street fights no education necessary.
  • Oratio Imperata on Filipino-style ‘labour activism’ makes Filipino workers poorer rather than richerI HAVE A THRONG OF HOUSEHELPS. An army of them. A phalanx. A platoon. I got a chauffeur. A gardener. A cook. And others just to vacuum clean the rest of the house. I DO NOT GIVE THEM: 1. Sick time 2. Vacation time 3. No SSS 4. No PhilHealth 5. Sunday off, yes 6. Breaktime, yes, but not when I am around 7. They must be awake at 4:00a.m. to prepare my food, warm up my fleet of cars, buff and clean the cars, and when I arrive buff and clean the cars again 8. They must not watch...
  • Oratio Imperata on No Single Driver rule on EDSA is sweet revenge for Manila’s long-suffering commuting publicWhen I commute in Manila I wear my over-the-ear headset. Blast my music. Backpack in front. Nothing in my backpocket.
  • Oratio Imperata on No Single Driver rule on EDSA is sweet revenge for Manila’s long-suffering commuting publicWhen I came to work in the Philippines I get confused with the word "commuting". "commutiing" to Filipinos means "riding mass transport" or, help me here, "driving a car?". To this day when a Filipino tells me they are "commuting" my brain just totally shuts down. Maybe short-circuited because of too much thinking what they really menat?
  • Oratio Imperata on More Filipinos would take public transport if sando and shorts are deemed acceptable attireLow-IQs wear long sleeves. High-IQs like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Larry Page, Sergie Brin to name a few go to work in t-shirts. In Google Campus like in Microsoft their workers comes in shorts with their long boards braided hairs ready to hit the waves ...
  • Oratio Imperata on More Filipinos would take public transport if sando and shorts are deemed acceptable attireIt is hot in Manila because they replaced trees with goofy architectures made of cement. The land is made into a cemented street. Cement radiates heat. Gridlocked vehicles with engine running gives out heat. Add Filipino hot tempers YOU GOT EXTREME HEAT !!!
  • Darth mortis on More Filipinos would take public transport if sando and shorts are deemed acceptable attireIt’s only so hot in Manila bec we cut down 90% of our TREES! That’s the reason for the floods too. SAD!
  • Darth mortis on No Single Driver rule on EDSA is sweet revenge for Manila’s long-suffering commuting publicThose sweaty masses are the REASON the Philippines is such a dump in the first place. They are incredibly unproductive, have almost zero skills apart from the most basic, breed like f— rabbits. Punishing the rich , talented and productive pushes them out. Capital is global. Ayala/ mpi/ jg summit all have assets abroad. Soon you would have a hallowed out state where everyone is poor. EGALITARIAN society like Venezuela. Be more educated. FAIL!
