Leftist-liberal-militant groups specialise in romanticising and politicising the poor

It’s a certainty that Inquirer columnist Randy David will write a column about the community pantry and so he does. He touches ever so slightly and only in passing on the incident that marred Angel Locsin’s (a.k.a. Red Angel’s) “community pantry”. Over the years, Filipinos have learned to fall in line and wait for their […]

He wishes for anarchy. ABS-CBN starlet Angel Locsin’s (a.k.a. Red Angel’s) community pantry fiasco yesterday shows the indolence of the Filipino poor. Aasa sa bigay. Opposition “thought leader” Cocoy Dayao’s dream is for Pinoys to go out in the streets and demand that Duterte step down before May 2022. This is why community pantries are […]

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 […]

Leni Robredo is hindering efforts to ERADICATE the Philippines’ jeepney CANCER

Virtue signalling has long been the bane of any effort to implement initiatives that help the Philippines progress and prosper. Specially true nowadays is how that and its evil twin, emotional blackmail, conspire to slow or, worse, reverse the country’s march to progress.

Philippine Opposition and freedom of choice advocates expect too much of the Duterte government!

It is now apparent who are the people relying too much on the government. They are actually the same people who accuse President Rodrigo Duterte of being a dictator.

Blame the Roman Catholic Church for the lack of a divorce law in the Philippines

It’s simple, really. There is no divorce in the Philippines because the country effectively remains a theocracy. The overlords of its seemingly secular government are the Cardinals of Rome. Its best and brightest citizens are educated in chi chi private Catholic schools. Its main Opposition bloc — the Yellowtards — are in bed with the […]
