IT’S COMMON SENSE, STUPID!

EXERCISE in common sense will help solve traffic nightmare in Metro Manila streets even as the Department of Transportation (DOTr) is pushing Congress to grant the President super powers that experts say already exist in the official mandate of the agency, except on the process of procurement. 

Four months after Pres. Rody Duterte assumed office, traffic nightmare in Metro Manila has gone from worse to worst even after Transportation Sec. Arthur Tugade, the person assigned to untangle this nightmare promised to make miracles in 100 days.

 

UNENDING NIGHTMARE  

Unfortunately the promised miracle turned to be an unending…

BENCHWARMER?

IN BASKETBALL or any other team sports, a bench warmer is someone who plays minor minutes and is considered a reserve player or second stringer.

In contrast to a bench warmer is the star player who makes the best plays and wins games for the team.       

When Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr. was appointed by President Duterte last June 31, rumors abound that he was just warming the bench for Senator Allan Peter Cayetano, the President’s running mate to whom he allegedly committed the position.

CUTTING EAGLE'S CLAWS

WHEN does the country’s best interest come?

Is it when being subservient to a foreign power or when it decides to adopt an independent foreign policy stance?

These are the posers that former President Noynoy Aquino failed to contemplate on before taking a dig on incumbent President Rodrigo Duterte’s current stand on foreign policy.

During an interview in Thailand, where he visited the wake of late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Aquino claimed that his administration’s foreign policy had been an “independent” one, guided by what could be in the best interest of the country.

As expected, the former leader has earned…
