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 […]

Fantardism surrounding Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla (a.k.a. “KathNiel”) will not win elections

As fans of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla (a.k.a. the “KathNiel love team”) keep pointing out, the couple have millions of social media followers. The question is, does this following translate to votes on election day? That remains to be seen. Back in 2016, Bernardo and Padilla publicly endorsed Yellowtard candidate Mar Roxas. Presumably behind […]

Upper class “woke” types defending #ABSCBN and its jolog “talents” prove they want to keep the Filipino masses stupid!

One of the funny things about this ABS-CBN shutdown is that the noisiest, shrillest cries of pain and dismay come from upper class types. Not just perfumed upper class types, mind you, but always angry, always online Woke™ types. You would think those people, on a normal, Duterte-free day, would have nothing to do with […]

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 […]

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 […]

Rabid Yellows will not win if they keep using their “Marcos paid hack” argument against their critics

In the absence of any valid response to criticism copped by their idol, “vice president” Leni Robredo, the Yellows are using harassment to silence critics. Even without proof, yellows are accusing us of being Marcos “paid hacks”, for example. They use lies to attack us. Just because we are criticising Robredo and want to keep […]

The Roman Catholic Church can’t claim to be “fact checkers” because its teachings are not based on FACTS

You’d think one of the key bases for one claiming to be an authority on “factual information” is one’s track record of teaching and preaching on the basis of facts. In that light, Filipinos need to reevaluate their reliance on their Roman Catholic Church for intellectual enlightenment. For one thing, the Catholic Church in the […]

“Activists” attending protest rallies in this year’s #SONA2019 should LISTEN

Protest rallies are meant to encourage their participants to make noise rather than listen. This is unfortunate because most real learning happens when listening and not when one is talking. It is therefore ironic that the very mobs who issue shrill cries that “press freedom” is “dead” are the very ones who would engage in […]

According to “sociologist” Ash Presto (@sosyolohija), Filipino voters are “just plain rotten”

The Yellowtards are in the midst of a monumental temperamental tantrum following a catastrophic loss of their Opposition bets in this year’s elections. They now dismiss Filipino voters as “bobo” (stupid) for not voting for their candidates. But in the face of clear evidence that this summary judgement of people who voted against the Opposition […]
