LUCKY GLOBE TROTTERS USE TAXPAYERS’ MONEY!

THERE is no question about President Duterte travelling around the globe to promote the Philippines to investors and tourists and to make the world know the country’s aspiration to reach out and partner with as many global leaders as possible. 

What is questionable, however, is the size of his contingent, particularly from the Presidential Communications Office (PCO).

Palace sources have confirmed to OpinYon that some “blessed” officials and staff there get to regularly travel free using people’s money five days or a week ahead of the Chief Executive.

These lucky globe trotters even stay in the foreign country long…

ROOK SACRIFICE

SOME guys are luckier than others.

These lucky guys have people who would follow their orders and are willing to make sacrifices just to save them when push comes to shove.

Just like in a game of Chess, all other pieces are dispensable and can be given away if there is a need to protect and save the King.

Reports have it that Transportation Undersecretary for Rails and Toll Roads Noel Kintanar has left his post and his boss Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade has already accepted his resignation.

SPLURGE FOR A CAUSE

SPLURGING on items that are not that basic to one’s personal or household needs usually brings a feeling of guilt on buyers. But not when you splurge on an annual event like the International Bazaar (IB) where you know that the proceeds would benefit the needy and marginalized.

In its 50th anniversary, IB is even more resolved to reach out to the marginalized and the uncared for members of our society by embarking on projects that would directly help them and less on funding other organizations and foundations that cater to their sectors.

For the first time, the international bazaar…

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.

Aware of this common perception, Yasay took his task quietly and…
