Karma sa LP?
Guhit ni Ed Rompal

HINDI talaga mapapasubalian ang mga katotohanan na nasusulat sa Banal na Aklat.

Gaya na lang halimbawa nang nakasaad sa Matthew 7: 12 na tinatawag din ng mga bible scholars na Golden Rule.

Sa nasabing talata ay hinikayat ng Panginoong Hesukristo ang mga mga tagasunod niya na “na gawin nila sa kapwa nila ang gusto rin naman nilang gawin sa kanila ng kanilang kapwa”.

Sa madaling salita puwede rin itong ipakahulugan sa kawikaang ‘huwag mong gawin sa kapwa mo ang ayaw mong gawin nila sa iyo”.

Naalala ko ang mga kasabihang ito dahil na rin sa isang balita…

How the Bidding Loot is Divided

It’s the now the most awaited time of the year when government workers revel because of the fat bonuses they expect to receive from their respective agencies in time for the holidays. 

But did you know that there are some state workers who have more reasons to celebrate than their private sector counterparts?

I am referring here to some more ‘enterprising’ members of the government’s various Bids and Awards Committees (BAC).

Is there really a clean coal?

HUNDREDS of environmental advocates and members of people's movements marched through the tight security blockade from La Salle Taft to Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), where the East Asian Summit was taking place last November 14.

The groups were protesting moves by some big Asian economies principally backed by Japan PM Shinzo Abe and US President Donald Trump for the continued use of “clean coal” purportedly to power ASEAN nations' growing economies.

“Coal has no place in a region like Southeast Asia,” said Sanlakas Secretary-General Aaron Pedrosa.

Selective predispositions

OF course we want all the unlawful killings in our communities stopped, and it was not at all necessary for a demonstration rally to be staged by the Yellows to stress the point at the Edsa Shrine on Sunday, November 5.

The rally, highlighted by a Mass officiated by His Grace, Archbishop Socrates Villegas, President of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines, deplorably denounced only the alleged extrajudicial killings taking place in the course of the administration's war on illegal drugs, in the process proclaiming as martyrs all the supposed victims thereof.
