Laughable toady

IT had been calculated that the "Battle at Marawi City" would be won by the second day this June with the entire city being virtually reclaimed by government forces. But that's just a battle, not the war itself...the war against fundamentalist Islam, a religion espoused by the jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

ISIS has been on a rampage spreading its horrors throughout different continents, in a determined effort to re-establish the Ottoman Empire of the 13th century...the war against Muslim terrorists who kill those who don't believe in their Deity called Allah. It's worrisome that hostile…

Bad Weather for Duterte, Mindanao and the Philippines!

PRESIDENT Rodrigo “Digong” Roa Duterte has a favorite quote from former President and now Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Ejercito Estrada, “Weather, Weather, Lang Iyan!” President Estrada has had his “ups” (1969, 1971, 1980, 1987, 1992, 1998, 2010, 2013 and 2016) and “downs” (1967, 1986 & 2001). That’s how he coined his saying.

Today, President Digong is in the second “down” of his presidency. The first was in January and February of this year. 

Although the Korean businessman was kidnapped and killed inside Camp Crame in October of last year, the news broke in January. The on - line…

Lanao del Sur

WITH your timely proclamation of martial law all over Mindanao, Mr. President, you have shown once again your genuine concern for the welfare of all Filipinos. 

We hail your decision to nip in the bud ISIS' masterplan to establish a base of operations in our country. All the anti-ISIS peoples of the world wish you well in your endeavor.

Sadly, a number of your critics in this regard are Filipinos. They are the Liberal Party Yellows, the commies led by Joma Sison (those holed up at The Hague for peace talks) and their armed NPA comrades in our countrysides,…

Changing the mindset of urban poor

UNDOUBTEDLY, the socialized housing sector of the country is in a constantly rising backlog—caused by uncontrolled ballooning population of urban poor dwellers.

The other reason for this backlog is the inefficient resource allocation by the government with its mind stuck on building units without the accompanying basic amenities of water, electricity and sanitation aside from being too far from employment opportunities and ‘civilization.’

 

Unoccupied Units

The backlog is even questionable as hundreds and thousands of units of low-cost housing projects remain unoccupied long after they were completed and are left to deteriorate through time.

The recent illegal “occupation”…

Martial Law: Then and Now = Apples and Oranges!

THERE is a common and popular saying, “Don’t compare Apples and Oranges!” There is a world of difference between Martial Law under the 1935 and 1987 Constitutions. 

There is also a big difference between the Presidents who were seating in September 21 – 23, 1972 and on May 23, 2017. Their motivations were different. The antecedents were different. Hopefully, the outcomes and results will be different.

The 1935 Constitution was drafted by an elected Constitutional Convention under the U. S. Colonial Government and under the shadow of then Senate President Manuel L. Quezon and a dominant Nacionalista Party.…
