Thank You, PNoy!

We are one with the Armed Forces of the Philippines in thanking President Benigno S. Aquino III for a nonpareil service to country. Even as the president’s term of office ends June 30, his tracks of good governance cannot be erased.  It is just as well that we voice our thanks and gratitude for a…

Loyalty With a Capital L

There is too much at stake in the 2016 Presidential Election in the Philippines.  One false move by the electorate will mean damnation, with Filipinos going back to square one at best and going the way of a failed state at worst. With Europe now being overtaken by refugees from failed states, it behooves Filipinos…

PNoy’s SONA

Well, I just hope it is not the last.  But it is.  Would that we could have a second term for the best President the Philippines ever had.     Enough said.

Dear Mr. President

Dear President Noynoy, Re the case of Mary Jane Veloso, the convicted drug mule in Indonesia, you have done superbly well in your moral suasion to stay her execution. Now that the Veloso family, in cahoots with Migrante, are practically hating and blaming you for the reprieve, it is as plain as day that all…

On Love of Country

Item: Americans are a patriotic bunch. Compared with people in most other countries, Americans express more pride in their nationality, and most say that being an American is an important part of their identity. Even so, patriotism in America is on the decline. But the decline seems to have more to do with reactions to…

Beyond the Cat-Dog Paradigm

From the wires, we have this story of a woman. who, while in repose and in the cremation of her remains, was guarded and attended to by stray dogs. All her life, she fed stray dogs and cats, which daily made a beeline to her home. Strange, you might say, that no stray cat had…

On a Beautiful Day. . .

You could see forever. . . Meanwhile, on the same day in Rome. . . What could be more heartening than common people with the common dream of supporting Tuwid na Daan of the President. And this happened on a beautiful day, March 29, 2015. Strategy, strategy, strategy. . . Mabuhay to all!

The Way of Snakes

As if the country is in the grip of a diabolical force that makes its inhabitants so crazy as to find fault in someone else except themselves.  What could be this force? Is it the second coming Christ, as it were? Some are so brazen as to accuse President Noynoy Aquino of mental instability, never…

Oh, No, It’s a Half-Baked Report!

NOTE:  Re the preliminary report on Mamasapano by the Senate Committee chaired by Sen, Grace Poe, our expert chimes in below.  He has the cojones to do just that. His bona-fides:  An International and Cyber Lawyer with an LL.B and LL.M; An Educator with an M.A. in Human Resource Development; An IT Chief Executive Officer…

Who is Without Empathy?

NOTE:  The Mamasapano incident has been hogging the national discourse and is being fed fuel left and right, the latest being the allegation that army commanders in the field were wined on the eve of the event, the better to neutralize them.  On whose orders, you might say?  Doesn’t sabotage come into play?  And who…
