Here is an interesting excerpt from Manuel L Quezon III’s recent column on the Inquirer.net, “The Mandate” where he gushes about Aquino’s “landslide” win in this year’s elections: It is the largest plurality since the present Constitution came into force; … Continue reading

Just before I posted my previous article about Dick Gordon, I thought to myself, Oh no, be ready for the avalanche of criticism. But that anxiety attack didn’t stop me from publishing it because I also thought, Well, fair enough … Continue reading
The signs are everywhere. It’s right under everyone’s noses. You can practically trip over it. For the metaphorically-challenged, there’s a Filipino saying, “Kung ahas yan, nakagat ka na!” But why can’t Noynoy Aquino supporters see that he is neither ready … Continue reading
