Hostage crisis fallout: P-Noy’s supporters should admit their mistake to support unity among Filipinos
There are many ways to try and talk with President Noynoy Aquino’s supporters. Unfortunately, none of them works. They are so caught up with their own narrow view of what is good and evil that they cannot see beyond their … Continue reading
Filipinos have been mounting a bit of an inward reflection and soul-searching in the face of overwhelming shame brought about by the appallingly incompetent handling of the August 23 Mendoza hostage incident that resulted in the unnecessary deaths of eight … Continue reading
One of the worst reactions that Filipinos have on the hostage crisis is, “We are still proud to be Filipinos in spite of what happened! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!” It’s very wrong. To the world, it looks like we’re proud of foreigners being killed in our territory. Continue reading
Most of us knew it was just a matter of time. As predicted in my previous blog, President Noynoy Aquino’s high popularity rating at the beginning of his term only had one way to go and that was down. What … Continue reading
Much of the criticism surrounding the handling of the Manila hostage crisis that ended in the preventable deaths of eight Hong Kong tourists had to do with the intrusive coverage of the event by the Philippine Media. Had the hostage-taker, … Continue reading
The recent Manila bus siege gave President Noynoy Aquino another opportunity to exhibit one of the two things he does best, which is to do nothing. As the tragedy of the hostage situation was unfolding, shocked and curious Filipinos were … Continue reading

Most Filipinos are anti-elitist. A good proportion of the Philippine population would prefer that they be seen as being one with the common tao rather than be seen as one of the elites. Indeed it is a land full of … Continue reading
ALL OF A SUDDEN, the method of the moronism reveals its purpose. I think that originally, most of us were assuming that Noynoy Aquino was just stupid. Any casual observer could be forgiven for forming that impression from the manifold evidence of his inability to formulate a coherent platform, speak intelligently on any issue during the campaign, and the amateurish and constant gaffes in the first few weeks of his presidency. It is beginning to appear, however, that there is a more insidious purpose behind the progressive “dumbing down” of the Presidency of the Republic. Market forces in the entertainment sector be damned. Anyone who does not have the musical tastes of a middle-aged social misfit is unpatriotic. Continue reading
The Leftist-infiltrated organisation Center for People Empowerment in Governance (CenPEG) throws in their two cents on the matter of the first visit of President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III to the United States. In its “Issue Analysis No. 09” on the … Continue reading
