Yellowtards trying to cover up the FACT that Leni Robredo is now fat

Not only are the Yellowtards scrambling to make “Opposition leader” Leni Robredo look smarter than she really is, they are also trying to fool Filipinos into thinking that she is still able to pull off her original pa-tweetums look that made her fodder for media glamour shots five years ago. A recent tweet by national […]

Despite optimism Philippine vax targets not likely achieved until 2024

I’m with Mareng Winnie on this one. Monsod writes in her Inquirer piece “Galvez’s math leaves much to be desired” countering National Task Force (NTF) Against Covid-19 chair Carlito Galvez’s optimistic appraisal of the vaccination situation in the Philippines… His arithmetic leaves much to be desired. He said that 19 to 25 million people will […]

Opposition has nothing better to do than put up roadblocks to the government’s pandemic response

“Penalize” Winnie says? The vaccine supply situation at present is similar to the alcohol supply situation in Bangladesh when I was there on business in 1998 – you drank what was available given it’s an Islamic country. You had no choice. In her Inquirer column today “Why penalize us for choosing better vaccine?”, Winnie Monsod […]

Brouhaha over Nayong Pilipino mega vax center fueled by dishonest journalism and Karen Davila’s DUMB interview questions

Why can’t Duterte fix this simple problem within his own turf? That critical projects to build large vaccination facilities got this far and became an unncessary PR problem explains why we are in this mess. Sheer incompetence! Do you think government officials actually use their heads? Nope. The default mindset of the bureaucrats is they […]

COVID-19 is not as big an election issue as the Philippine Opposition think

The Opposition repeatedly made an issue of the President’s statements with regard to the Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine. The first claim was it was more expensive than Western vaccines which provided the perception of anomalies in procurement. The second point was efficacy. It was supposed to be largely ineffective in its intended purpose. Then came the […]

Creating employment is better than handing out “ayuda” cash

To do stimulus right you need to have better governance. Obviously the bureaucracy needs to be reformed. The pandemic has brought to fore the neglect of the public healthcare system since former President Ferdinand Marcos was ousted. As it was the trend beginning with the administration of former President Cory Aquino, privatization was the operative […]

The Philippines’ health care system COLLAPSED under Yellowtard watch!

Yellowidiots don’t want to admit that they are responsible for the collapse of the healthcare system because they did nothing to build up capacity to cope with demand under their watch. Yet Boo Chanco writes… According to Sen. Ralph Recto, the share of health in the 2021 P1 trillion infrastructure pie is a measly “one […]

Leni Robredo’s pandemic response “projects” are not scaleable and are mainly for show

No one has noticed how most of the “projects” of the Office of the Vice President (OVP) can’t be scaled. In short, it’s only good for PR and projection. If Robredo really is a servant-leader as she claims, the strategies her staff thinks of should be scaleable. In this case, her office only focuses on […]

Philippines’ inability to control COVID-19 no different to its failure to control traffic

This, according to economist Jeffrey Sachs on why the Philippines can’t seem to get its COVID-19 response act together while other countries can… “If we were rational and well-governed, we would actually find a way through this without massive pain and suffering,” he noted. “The epidemic is itself controllable through rational policies.” Thing is, the […]

Duterte’s health issues definitely better than Noynoy’s mental health

I don’t know what the Opposition is on about. They insist Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte should resign because he has a condition that puts him at risk of cancer. So what if he is at risk of cancer? The late US president Franklin Roosevelt kept his partial paralysis a secret from the public and still […]
