Psychic Danny Atienza – Duterte will not last as long as Erap did! (First Part)

YESTERDAY

ALMOST sixteen years ago, I met Danny Atienza at the residence of former Congressman and now Philippine Olympic Committee Chairman Jose “Peping” Sumulong Cojuangco on Accacia Street in Dasmariñas Village, Makati, through his wife, Margarita “Tingting” Manzano Cojuangco. 

It was during the height of the Impeachment and Destabilization of President Joseph “Erap” Ejercito Estrada in November or December 2000.

I had been recruited into the Silent Protest Movement in March 2000 by former Ambassador to the United Kingdom Bert Pedrosa and his wife, Carmen “Chit” Pedrosa. 

We had met at a twenty fourth anniversary commemoration of EDSA People…

Internet for all

RADIO and television broadcasting could have become paid services, but these are not. 

I still remember when radio cable broadcasting was a paid service, but it did not last long, when free radio broadcasts came along. 

Up to now, cable television is a paid service, but people have the option not to subscribe to these services, because free-to-air television broadcasts are free as the name suggests, for anybody to listen to. 

In theory, radio and television broadcasts could have become paid services, but that did not happen because the costs were borne by the advertising sponsors. That…

How long after the honeymoon - Martial Law? (second of two parts)

IN LAST week’s (Sept 26 to Oct 2, 2016.) “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” column, entitled “Martial Law Then and Now!”, we had three parts – Yesterday, Today andTomorrow.

In “Yesterday”, I reminisced about my personal history leading up to and in the years right after the Declaration, Execution and Implementation of Martial Law.

My personal history from 1966 up to 1981, was tied up with the Reformist Moderate Political Spectrum. In particular, I was an original character in the Jesuit Blanco – Quintos Political Education and Cadre Training Project from 1966 until 1970 at the Ateneo and the…

Believe it or not (Part 2)

UNTIL she was elected senator of the republic, I had always viewed Sen. Leila de Lima (SDe5) as a good justice secretary --- feisty and uncompromising but fair. 

However, her mistake was forgetting that she should have chaired the senate committee on justice and human rights (CJHR) as an impartial fact-finder in aid of legislation, instead of seemingly lawyering for sole witness Edgar Matobato as the Liberal Party's attack dog against Pres. Rodrigo Duterte (PDu30).

As a result, on the strength of Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano's privilege speech, the CJHR chair was declared vacant, and Sen. Dick Gordon became…

Bandwidth is the bottom line

UNTIL recently, I used to say that for as long as there is a signal, we can deliver public services via online means. Well, I do not say that anymore, because nowadays, there is always a signal everywhere, and where there is none, we could always install a device that will provide a signal. 

In a manner of speaking, it could be said that there is no more place to run, because there is always a signal everywhere, no matter where you run to. 

Not that we want to run away from anything, but what I really mean…
