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. Nowhere is the battle between wokedom’s lame emotionalism and the sort of […]

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. Ironically, they are the ones who keep demanding that he tell them what to do. They can’t seem to make their own call or judgement. With […]

Virtue signaller @Deeeeeeeeeeysi blames Duterte for troubles of man she boasted about helping

If you don’t know what virtue signalling means, the below thread is a classic example. Pinapakita na isa syang mabait at maawain. The lady who tweeted this now has her account locked so the rest of the thread can’t be read. But it basically narrates how she went out of her way to help the […]

A video making the rounds today shows horrifying footage of a jeepney plowing through a group of students as they crossed a street. A 14 year old was reportedly killed and several others injured when the jeepney seemingly swerved onto the opposite side of the street just as the students were more than half way […]

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 […]

The Philippine Opposition led by the Yellowtards are exploiting #coronavirus panic to #oustDuterte and seize power

Rather than work towards uniting Filipinos towards a more level-headed approach to dealing with the developing problem surrounding the latest viral outbreak, the Yellowtards are sowing panic and pinning blame for this panic on the Philippine government. The agenda here is quite clear as has been evident in other panic fads incited by the Yellowtards […]

Time to invest in the future and on the SCIENTISTS who can make that future happen

Ironic that Yellowtards, whose members are an assortment of religious nuts, shrill emotional blackmailers, and artsy social climbing types are now decrying those who “crucify” scientists who have long been consistent in applying systematic thinking on the back of facts. The fact is, science and technology will not thrive in a society addicted to poverty […]

Taal volcano eruption shows just how fragile human existence is

Filipinos believe they are “victims” of natural disasters because they think those things happen “for a reason”. They don’t. That is why they are called natural disasters. Nature does not select her “victims”. She just does what she does. It’s really nothing personal. Life on earth is fragile after all. A small change in the […]
