If I were a shareholder of “social news network” Rappler, I’d be really pissed. You hire and pay a CEO big bucks and what does she do? She gets my company into a heap of tax trouble and exposes it to a big libel case. Worst of all, she gets arrested and spends most of…

Activists and their commie lapdogs are grabbing the low-hanging fruit of wit today making crack about the now-late Retail King Henry Sy. Sy passed away today.

These “activists” want to see being a man made into a complicated enterprise — probably because being a woman is inherently complicated and, being so, women suffer from a bad case of simplicity envy. Back in the old days, men went out to hunt and so the skills we evolved were mainly around zeroing in…

What the production team for the Gillette ad failed to understand: * Real men don’t like being told what to do. * You do not piss off your No. 1 customer. * Make your Ad about your product, not your personal advocacies.

For one thing, beauty pageants are all about pageantry. They’re not really platforms for sound political or philosophical discourse. Yet, the way the participants in this year’s Miss Universe pageant are being turned into avatars of the broader “debate”, you’d think beauty pageants are such deep wells of intellectual insight. The current focus of today’s…
