Now is the right time to establish our own defense industry as well as establish military relationships with Japan, Vietnam and Australia as common sentiments are brewing along with these significant issues. Vietnam for instance, has the knowledge to create missiles and rockets, they also develop their ships and boats.. Japan can contribute with their electronics and so forth.. Australia is a very capable military force. Now is the right time. We have shown signs we can develop our own as well. Check Ferfrans industries. I have to wonder why we keep disregarding this idea to develop answers from our very own talents and ingenuity.

Re: Malaysian Airlines shot down out of the sky. Me-thinks it speaks well of Obama being (unlike Reagan and JFK) is a weak leader. Obama does not have the balls to decisively confront Putin. The world is watching on America's decisive action or inaction. Obama's not walking the talk emboldens US adversaries. My humble opinion points to this very reason why China is so emboldened now, declaring almost all of South China Sea/West Phil Sea as part of its territorial sovereignty. It sucks!

The insect is an ancient crop of people. More ancient than the pyramids of Egypt; more ancient than the flood of Noah. They are believed to be the ancestors of the North American Indians, therefore the obviousity is as clear as mud they have traveled far and wide. They probably staked their claims to the land they visited but they never stay; unlike Spain proxy by Magellan (a Portuguese any way) who proclaimed "I claimed this land (islas de ladrones) for God and King", and the ones who followed after him stayed for good, well, say 300 plus years? Now the absentee owner (the insect) is back to reclaim his property in the So. insect sea (PH sea) with an ancient map as proof (I heard). But not North America. How's that for a compromise to settle this issue?

It's about time we now establish our own defense industry so can manage our defensive needs on a much more sane manner, financially wise. If we rely on other countries weapons, its a business that will cost us billions.. but if we can produce our own, we will always control the initiative.

SOMEONE: There is something different between Vietnamese soldiers and Filipino soldiers. Vietnam does not have military academies like us. They are soldiers adept in guerilla warfare. They fought the French and the Americans using less sophisticated weapons. They did not have an air force. They fought these western invaders on the ground. How they won over a more superior army surprises the rest of the world. What distinguishes them from us is their tenacity, courage, discipline and the WILL TO WIN! We can't even win over Abu Sayyafs in the jungles of Sulu.

Someone said, "CHINA, upon invitation of good ol' USA, is participating in the current RIMPAC naval exercise based in Hawaii! They send a contingent task force which is second biggest participant after our ally USA (1100 men and 4 warships with helicopters, a hospital ship and supply ship). My reply: So what is your point? What's so wrong about knowing a little knowledge about how your enemy's naval capabilities? and with regards to the Philippines pathetic naval capability, we can only blame ourselves particularly our politicians.

I believed the Chinese just like Filipinos are kind and gentle people. We can see this how they nurture their children, how they take care and respect their parents and their elders. History tells us they did not used even then their numbers to bully other nations. They did not even used their numbers to protect themselves (remember WWII?) how the Japanese bully them? This time they just want what is theirs and yet in the process, I guarantee it, they will not fire the first volley to accomplish it. Although, caveat, just like Filipinos don't try their patience "at may tama ka!" as a Filipino would say.

Actually what China is doing now is to build infrastructures in as many islands it can lay its hands on before it is too late. If you read between their actions, they did not bother to pulverized that rusty tub "intentionally" daw grounded by the Philippines. In other words, the Chinese conceded that to the Philippines and that bigger island (is it Kalayaan?) populated by few Filipinos planted there by the Philippine govt. So we are neighbors, they may have told themselves. What's the big deal? Some bloggers say the Chinese moved the oil rig away from Vietnam waters with no trouble. Can't you see it? So you want peaceful solutions, you are seeing it folks! You may not like the way it is being given by the Chinese, how do you think they feel about it?

Deo said China discovered gunpowder. Okay it did. But it was in Europe during the Renaissance period that gunpowder was very much improved for military purposes and further development of pyrotechnics for elaborate fireworks for entertainment. In modern times without the help of Soviet Union, China would not have acquired modern weaponry. AK-47 rifles are still its standard, issued to its PLA soldiers. China would not have become nuclear-capable without its neighbor Russia's assistance. So there they are!

In other words there were a lot of Chinese gestures signifying their intention of solving the issues (Spratlys, So. China Sea) peacefully. When they tried to require shippers passing through So. China Sea to get "permission" first and the other countries lead by super powers notably the U.S. balked and said "you can't do that!" the Chinese immediately "rescinded" the requirement. The oil rig you said off Vietnam coast; it's gone, right? And somebody posted that they even participated in a military naval exercise with the U.S. and others. They even expressed their "concerned" on the uneven numbers of Filipino Companies doing business in China than Chinese doing business in the Philippines. Isn't that a peaceful gesture?

Further to my other recent posts, the Philippines should start building settlements to those bigger islands not occupied by the Chinese or not in the process of being occupied. As I said, the Chinese is conceding some of those islands; just beat them to it. Huwag magpa-ata-ata ang Pilipinas; daig ng maagap ang masipag. If the Philippines can not do it because "there is no fund", then it's their own fault. As I said they are accommodating. That's their strategy now. Again, the Philippine should not insists the whole or parts of Sparslys is their's. It's never been and it will never will as far as the Chinese are concern. As to the other claimants, they may do the same. It's a land grab courtesy of China.

Perhaps these questions will enlighten us... Is it in the best interest of the United States and the rest of the free world for China, particularly the Chi-coms to control the South China sea? Is it in the best interest of the World to submit itself under the Yuan instead of the dollar? Is it in the best interest of South East Asia to have it oil reserves administered by the Chi-coms? The answers to these questions is also a question, Is it to the best interest of the Philippines to rely on the US for the provision of its butt-wipes? Gumising na tayo! We know more than our politicians in office.

Hindi naman pagpapakita na inaangatan ni PNoy ang Supreme Court o kaya'y nagpapalusot. Ipinaglalaban lang niya ang kanyang karapatan at ang nagawang kabutihan ng DAP. Ang natatangahan lang ako sa mga tao na hangad ang pagbabago sa bansa ay sila pa ang kumakalaban kung may ipinagbago. Gaya na lang sa nagawang napakalaking tulong sa weather forecasts ng PAGASA na pinagkakatiwalaan ngayon dahil sa mga modernong kagamitan at yan ay sa katas ng DAP. Hindi naman isang krimen ang nagawa ng Presidente. Ang Bayan Muna ay isa na sa mga makikitid ang katwiran, nagpapagulo at mga mapangbintang!. Huag ng makinig sa mga negative reports to move on the positives. At ang media, stop na lang sa pagrereport at pag entertain sa mga walang kwentang issue na pampagulo.

Bayan Muna group is focusing on the impeachment of PNoy but who will succeed in case impeached? I think those marching on the street to protest against PNoy were pushed because of money. Those on PNoy's side does not like trouble but with promises to vote the good ones on the coming election...cool and hates oppositions. People have learned and knows who the STUPIDS and kaputt BRAINS going to raise the flag of BUWAYAS. BTW, be thankful for the present president who's doing the best solution to uplift our dying country caused by the Corrupt government of the past. He may not be a perfect one but the sincerity and honesty and gradual developments that matters/counts. Go for him and not for the evil ones!

Pagdami ng babasahin, pagdami ng mga pinapanood na mga negatibo ay talaga namang mawawalan ka ng paghanga sa ating bansa. Nakakawalanggana at maiiisip na palagi na lang masama at wala ng pagbabago. Palaging ang binibigyan ng importansya ay ang mga negatibo kaya ang mga tao ay nalulungkot at lalong tinatamaan ng problema at mga katastrope. Para bang wala ng nakikitang maganda, gaya nila na hate na hate ang sarili kapag nakita sa salamin ang mukha... na sila ay pangit. Ganyan ang mga balita, laging kapangitan ng paligid. Taong nagmamalasakit, sisiraan pa. Nagpro-provide naman ang Dios ng mabuti pero, may mge elementong palaging nagpapasama sa kabutihan, palaging hanap ay ang pagkakaguluhan ng lahat.

Let's move on! Be positive. Huwag na dagdagan ang mga paghihirap ng mga tao sa mga nagdaang katastrope dahil ng bagyo. Ibigay natin ang mga positibong mga pananalita at huag tuunan ng sobra ang kaisipang negatibo. Tumulong tayo sa mga naapektuhan ng kahirapan at mga magandang panuntunan ng gobyerno. Huwag paapekto sa mga negatibong magpapabagsak sa magandang hangarin ng kapwa. God will provide and prayers will give us the best answers from Him. Do not destruct the good plan intended for us. We know Satan is still powerful but don't give him a chance in our life.

[Someone]: Pinoys gave up their rights a long time ago either it was suppressed or by ignorance; but unfortunately when the government took advantage of that, they did not put it into good use for the benefit of the people; instead nakaw dito, nakaw duon took place. In the same token, Kanos, including kanonized Pinoys, willingly gave up SOME of their rights after 9/11 because of NECESSITY. Some called it "suppression" (which I agree) but in the long run the end results justified it as necessary. So in the meantime, Kanos including kanonized Pinoys are happy-happy.

The SC (supreme injustice court) may not "reverse" their decision per se at least now particularly with the current crap, I mean crop who decided (the PDAF and DAF as unconstitutional). It will be likened to picking up a stone and hit their own heads with it. When the current crap withered away and turned to dirt, the obviousity, at least also in Pinas any way, a new crop will take over, the same issue (with a little twist-may be a brighter Solicitor General as someone said represented the govt.?) will be presented to them and hope the govt. will get a different verdict. And if they do, that's in essence and in fact the SC reverses itself.

In the olden times people do not have surnames. Jesus Christ is also known as Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus was a Jewish rabbi from Galilee who preached orally, a healer, a egalitarian social reformer. Jesus is known as Isa to the Muslims. He is regarded as a prophet, a bringer of the scripture, but never the son of god; he was never crucified. In Judaism, Jesus was rejected as the awaited messiah. Those who believe in his teachings are called Christians. Where are you getting all those crazy ideas, [someone]? In case you are not aware JC is known in Indonesia as Yesus Kristus.

MOCKINGMAYA: Let us put an end to your rhetoric and acidic description of President Aquino. There is no such thing as a perfect man neither is there a perfect government. Our AFP have obsolete military assets not because of PNoy but because of certain decisions made in the past and misuse of funds. The first gentleman sold us brand new helicopters when in fact they were used. We accept hand me down ships because having something is better than having nothing at all. If you were the president of the country would you have done better? I HAVE MY SERIOUS DOUBT!

[Someone]: I do not think you have a good grasp or understanding between democracy and a republic. You need to be educated. The contrast is that in the former, the majority imposes its will on the minority. In the latter certain rights are inalienable and could not be taken away. We call our country REPUBLIC of THE PHILIPPINES but do we really stand for the name and live with it? In the same manner with the old USSR?

I think Mr. Velarde's hypocritical advice to his followers, "Magkaisa tayo sa ikauunlad ng Pilipinas," is a dangerous & hypocritical characteristic of the fusion of corrupt politics or political hubris & blind religious fanatics. Mr. Velarde has supported corrupt Filipino politicians like Gloria Macapagal Arroyo & other plunderers of public funds. I do believe that radicalized & hypocritical (snake-oil salesmen & preachers) Filipino religious leaders will destroy the essence of republican-democratic constitutional government: "the separation of State & Church or Religion." As I recall, Mr. Velarde is not immune from ideological politics & lust for power when he decided to run for president of the PH.

What kind of stupid thinking do you have? DAP has been declared unconstitutional by SC and to pass a bill and enact into law allowing DAP to be viable is illogical, unethical, irrational, and immoral. Only morons favor DAP legal. Exercise your God-given intellect and if you can't do think rational at least.

HONESTLY, [someone]. [Someone] did a job on your mind. He was able to implant a deep sense of inferiority in your head that had reduced you to a whining, cussing malcontent. He has made you feel inferior to products of Ateneo, that you use the slightest excuse to trash its alumni. In the process you make yourself look ridiculous. Your ludicrous posts of what so and so said may be your way of saying that you not inferior to anyone. Well, no one is saying you are. But you continued opinion (that came from someone else you quote) MAKES you look a wannabe and therefore inferior. Lastly, the more you display your angry, defensive, and provincial mentality the more Atenistas will look down on you. But that's your fault. Not theirs. And that is not a quotation.

So she is stressed/terrified/depressed by her current condition. So what? Just because she has fallen from the heights should entitle her to special attention, much less sympathy. People should be aware of other female prisoners languishing in filthy jails at this moment for crimes that they were forced to commit due to poverty or other circumstances beyond their control.

[Someone]: The term flexible constitutional interpretation is a big word to mean that judges inject their personal beliefs and opinions when making judicial decisions rather than interpreting the constitution by its original intent. When SCOTUS says that corporations are people and employers can deny female employees oral contraceptives based on employer's religious beliefs the decisions are examples of judicial activism or flexible constitutional interpretation by judges.

Its time to bring our OFW once and for all. We need them home to help towards the Industrialization of our country. I have already signed the Memorandum of Agreement with the largest NGO of Papua New Guinea to help them build their infrastructure and we will do it through BOT. We need a lot of workers in construction, Medical Professionals including Farmers. Construction Equipment will be coming from Australia and here in North America. This is a $40 B USD development project. Its closer to PH. What my father has done I will carry it on when he was the Vice Pres. of Cardinal Industries that sent thousands of OFW to Saudi Arabia, Libya and the Middle East during the time of Labor Secretary Blas Ople. Those who will read this for sure knew my father. Walang lagay lagay sa kanya.

I am beginning to learn who is this Bro. Mike Velarde who had the nerve to pick Arroyo who is in detention as one of his legion of principal sponsors for his wedding anniversary. And he is supposed to be a "religious dude"? Associating with known suspected criminals? I hope he'll not justify his association with these suspected criminals because he wants them to amend their ways. I'm not buying it. I understand he is catholic. I think he's the kind of person that makes Catholics look bad.

Government lawyers have cited in their attempt to reverse SC ruling that on two occasions the present Supreme Court has also resorted to transfer of funds as was done with DAP so why say that the Executive is wrong but the Chief Justice is right in using the same mechanism? Joker Arroyo warns of possibility of autocracy with what PNoy has done. Baloney. Pres. Arroyo has done this before as well as other presidents. Why the exaggeration? This is all partisan politics nothing more nothing less. When learned people think like this, how could we expect progress for the Phil. when majority of voters are less educated than these committed critic/liars?

This is my only take on this DAF & PDAF as unconstitutional according to the SC (supreme injustice court). So be it. The only recourse of those who were "aggrieved" (naagrabiyado) is that the administration has to "cease and desist" the practices. That's about it. Well, they until they turned blue, can condemned the advisers of Aquino; (I'll bet my last aluminum centavo) he did not started the practice from his own kokote's idea. We can always presumed his advisers knew what they are advising Aquino. Even the former Treasurer (daw siya) "the issue is not whether nagnakaw si Aquino but it was illegal to transfer fund between Branches without appropriation laws". Tongress lang daw ang may power. Forget about that! Pilipinas yata ito!

Re The Unconstitutionality of the DAF and PDAF. According to Briones (now I remember her name) former Treasurer (daw siya ng Pinas) Aquino could have used the fund from Aquino's discretionary fund (some called it the "pork barrel" of the president-but not really) which amounted to P252 Billoion (that's her figures). Well, did Aquino used it in the DAF or he didn't. If he did, then that particular portion ( the DAF subjected to the interpretation by the SC) was not UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Is that why some bloggers (sweared "mamatay ang kanilang kapitbahay") the decision was a "combo"?

If many are confused with the ruling of the SC on DAP, so do I. The court was divided as to how lump funds are to be treated. Some justices believe That DAP money was illegal but others say otherwise. The point I would like to raise is what if these allotments were given in tranches, ( in smaller and staggered amounts ) would they still be seen as illegal? Here it is evident that flexibility of constitutional interpretation concept or judicial activism is at play. If budgetary control is the principal concern or suggested remedy here, the Supreme Court is usurping the function of both congress and the executive branch. What say you? Is judicial intervention necessary or simply budgetary control will suffice?

In the news: "Evacuation Of Pinoys In Gaza Ordered". Not necessary, really. The Israeli knew better who are Pinoys and Palistinians. Sa ilong na lang, eh, nagkakatalo na. Or meet the advancing Israelis with arms raised and shout "Pinoy ako! Pinoy ako!". I'm making fun of the situation? NO! I remember it well, in our hometown during WWII. When the Kano forces entered our town, that's exactly what we did "Filipino, Filipino". The Kanos must have said to themselves "Gardimit, Filipinos! As if we don't know". "Pix man", it's true! Pinoys in my hometown during WWII, Pinoys in Gaza? Prapreho lang!

[Someone]: Pnoy did not commit any criminal act with DAP. If you analyze the court's ruling the court was very ambivalent. How could you accept that certain portions of DAP were constitutional while others were not? Perhaps budgetary control would have been an acceptable remedy than judicial intervention. The SC could have dismissed the petition and invoked the separation of powers. The court has made the other branches upset.

Re the Malaysian MH17 alleged downed by a guided missile. Kerry can swear (mamatay man ang kanyang kapitbahay) that it was a Ruskie missile supplied to the Ukrainian separatists rebels that downed the passenger plane. Is the U.S. conceding that the missile tech of the Ruskie is better? Check this out: The MH17 was cruising at 33,000 feet when it was "tinira" daw by the rebels. It was no mean fate then, right? considering that what do an almost "no read, no right" rebels knew about firing a sophisticated weapon. Think about it.

[Someone]: The law is never a perfect instrument for rendering justice or equality. Many times justices' views and opinions influence judicial decision more than interpreting the intent of the constitution. A case in point are SCOTUS rulings on corporate election spending and Hobby Lobby. If you are familiar with senate hearings on judicial appointments , senators frown upon nominees who would potentially legislate on the bench. I hope you know what I am talking about.

In the news: "Glenda Death Toll May Reach 100 Says Disaster Authorities". So? ano naghihintay na naman ng biyaya from abroad? Mahihiya-hiya naman sila! Hindi pa nga nila ginamit ang bilyon-bilyon ka pisos (in cash and in kind) or was it green backs (dollars) Pinas disaster authorities received last typhoon. Ngayon, eh, nagpapasaring na naman. Unortunately for Pinas disaster authorities, this Glenda typhoon is not making much news in the world.

You can tell, and I'll bet my last aluminum centavo, these people, and I'll bet another aluminum centavo, who are filing impeachment raps against Aquino are lawyers at mahina ang mga kokote! How can they make Aquino liable for something that historically all these times, the DAF practice or whatever they called it by the previous administrations are legal and constitutional. As I said, this must be the first time it was CHALLENGED in the Court of Law (and the verdict) or Aquino would not have done it. Unless his advisers are lawyers nga but as usual "mahihina ang kokote". Kayo mangyan. Ah, you understand what I mean.

I can not emphasize more this illegality and unconstitutionality of the DAF of Aquino according to the SC (supreme injustice court) issues than what I posted about a speeding motorist. He must have thought he was doing OK (legally) cruising 75-80 MPH in a 65 MPH zone until a highway patrol pulled him over for speeding! Aquino vs SC, speeding motorist vs the police, prapreho isn't it? So this impeachment raps vs. Aquino will not prosper. It's common sense.

Genghis: The overcrowding of correctional facilities could be explained very easily. Many are locked up for petty crimes and the courts are just "too busy" deciding when to free offenders or keep them. Second, prisons are just too small . Our penal system is still anchored on punishing offenders that reforming them. Lastly the government is simply not allocating enough money to run our correctional facilities. We need to create reformed felons with skills after they are discharged and allowed to rejoin society.

Lighter side of life...it is true. I was on my way to Virginia Beach, VA to visit a friend. I was joyfully cruising at 65-70 in interstate 95 until I exited and ended up in an intrastate highway (forgot the no.) going to Virginia Beach. Before I knew, a flashing light was behind me. To make the story short, the cop told me I was speeding. I was now in a 55 MPH zone. As usual I have to hand over my license and registration. But before he can walk to his cruiser, I play my trump card "FORGIVE ME FATHER, FOR I HAVE SINNED". He gave a big, big smile, hand me my license and registration and said "be careful, no speeding I just radioed ahead to keep an eye on you". WTF? Well, under his Irish name was another tag that says "Chaplin"!

Which is good in the eyes of God? The money from DAP used for the welfare of the people or the credibility of using the DAP?. The people of the PH must be very thankful that the money was not used for corruption. What is the devilish thing on that? Why so noisy and too much blah blah for that case? That's not a crime and could be settled. Those unhappy and revengeful people were the prime cause of the problem of Aquino administration. They were trying to put down his administration for their aspiration to be queen and king of corruption again. They have sleepless nights planning black propagandas. But, Aquino is sincere, if he says so... he will do it, he's firm.... even who you are...you'll go to jail...

This incident on the Malaysian Airlines is a big blow to Malaysia including their economy as in all cases the Flag Carrier of any country take a big role. PAL has done a great job through Mr. Lucio Tan, though our Flag Carrier is also struggling like the rest of all the different airlines around the world except www.westjet.com base in Western Canada. I have sent to PNL the two Master Plans for Bauang International Airport & Poro Point to be attached here so you will know. We will help PAL to service North America and EU including the ASEAN Countries. More Domestic Airport and Cargo will be build and upgraded to link with the main Hub. We intend to build more International Airports not only in Bauang La Union but at least 5 different locations in PH.

Ako ay natatawa na lamang ditto sa Pork Barrel at DAP. Lahat sabi DAP is Illegal. Ha ha ha ha. Itong PORK matagal nang ginagawa noon pa at halos ng mga nakaupo sa gobyerno ay tumatangap nito. Itong mga Artista mismo na tumatakbo na palaoos na dahil sa popolaridads nila aba mas mabuti ng pumasok sa Politika dahil siguradong makaka kuha sila ng POOOORK BARREL na walang hirap. LAhat tumatangap nito mula sa ittas pababa pati n SC so tutok sila sa DAP gayon upang di mabisto ha ha ha ha.

Meeting avengers, saviors, friendly invaders no better way than with waving raised arms suggesting you are friendly as what I suggested Pinoys should do in Gaza. Check this out: Further to my previous post, when the Americans got tired of pulverizing the Japanese camp 2 miles from our farm, two mustangs circled us (family) in our farms where we watched the action. The adrenaline must still be flowing in the system of the pilots of those planes because I can see the redness of the pilots faces as they flew just 50-100 ft as they wave back. My father feared if we don't wave they might fired at us. Gaza, Tampakan, PH prapreho din. You know what I mean.

Survey says PH has drop to 100 below economically. To my ears that is nothing at all. PH has been so open on corruptions made by our Honorable leaders left and right that are pick up in most of the news both in PH and around the world. But let us think it this way, other countries does it too including here in Canada by some senators now being investigated including Mike Duffy by the RCMP. So nothing is new anyways. PH will be the talk of the world once those PORK BARREL be resolved and a real massive undertaking takes place soon. Ika nga TIMING LAHAT ITO.

Now is the right time to establish our own defense industry as welll as establish military relaitonships with Japan, Vietnam and Austrailia as common sentiments are brewing along with these significant issues. Vietnam for instance, has the knowledge to create missiles and rockets, they also develop their ships and boats.. Japan can contribute with their electronics and so forth.. Australia is a very capable military force. Now is the right time. We have shown signs we can develop our own as well. Check Ferfrans industries. I have to wonder why we keep disregarding this idea to develop answers from our very own talents and ingenuity.

A blogger who claims he is from Jerusalem says, "the decision of the SC while it carries finality is often not seen with infallibility. Congress could always enact a law reversing SC's decision. If SC' decision on DAP is not yet executory, PNoy could still file a motion for reconsideration..." Of course, justices are but human beings, sir. But when it renders a unanimous decision (e.g 13-0) it could be 1 in a million it will be reversed. Of course the losing party is given time to appeal (motion for reconsideration) after which its ruling is final and executory. You are wrong Mr. to say it can still be reversed with legislation. Walang 'PAHABOL' through enactment of a law by congress so that the losing party is accommodated and will win the case. A law is a law is a law!

[Someone] asked, " How can you call INC (Iglesia Ni Cristo) as Christian when it don't adhere to the teaching and worship Jesse Christ as the founder of Christianity?" Deo you are wrong. INC is a Christian church. Felix Manalo used to be a Catholic until his dissatisfaction with it. He claims that it is the restoration of the original church founded by Jesus and that all other Christian churches, including the Roman Cath. Church, are apostates. I will you the link if you want.

[Someone] said, Felix Manalo claimed he was the 'anointed one.' Mr, you are wrong. He did not claim but INC members including himself believed he is the last 'messenger of God,' & 'angel of the East.' The meaning of 'ANOINTED' is far different from the word 'MESSENGER.' Anointed means the 'chosen.' Whereas the word messenger means the 'person entrusted to relay the message' of somebody (e.g. God), courier or 'sugo.'

Napoles PDAF/NGO Scandal: What is Ten or Fifteen Billion Pesos Really Worth?

For those who have been following the Janet Lim-Napoles PDAF/NGO* scandal these past months, it is easy to get caught up in all the rhetoric—the words and phrases repeated day after day. Words like "ten billion" or "fifteen billion" have turned into something akin to "gray" background noise.  Words devoid of any real meaning or significance. So let us try to put back some meaning into those trite and often-repeated phrases in order to better understand some of the far-reaching ramifications of Napoles' actions. Published 06/30/2014


How could they not have known that the Napoles NGOs were fake?

With Senator Bong Revilla already in police custody in Camp Crame and Senators Jinggoy Estrada and Juan Ponce Enrile set to join him any day now, people need to start asking tough questions going forward. The privilege speeches of the senators along with the histrionics that accompanied them are thankfully now over so we can all address this issue more objectively. Published 06/21/2014
The Self-Perpetuating Elite of the Philippines

In an essay published in the July 1968 issue of the American magazine Foreign Affairs, a novice Philippine senator described his country as “a land in which a few are spectacularly rich while the masses remain abjectly poor. . . . a land consecrated to democracy but run by an entrenched plutocracy… a people whose ambitions run high, but whose fulfillment is low and mainly restricted to the self-perpetuating elite…a land of privilege and rank – a republic dedicated to equality but mired in an archaic system of caste.” Published 06/14/2014
PHL Legislators Implicated in the Napoles PDAF Scam Face Definite Jail Time...Maybe

In the United States former four-star General and until recently Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki was forced to resign as head of the VA by the ongoing healthcare scandal that has enveloped that agency. While one can safely assume that Shinseki was not involved in the actually transgressions being investigated, the fact that he headed the agency meant he had command responsibility over its entire staff. And their wrongful acts, whether he knew about them or not, cost him his job. That is the way things work in properly functioning democracies. In the Philippines however, things tend to get a little unusual. Published 06/03/2014
Why All the Fuss? We Knew They were Corrupt Anyway!

So finally the cat is out of the bag, so to speak. But we Pinoys should not be surprised at all. We all know how corrupt our country is. Even before former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was accused of electoral sabotage and the misuse of public funds in 2011; even before Joseph “Erap” Estrada—an earlier president was convicted of plunder by the Sandiganbayan in 2007; even before Ferdinand Marcos, a president-turned-dictator, was booted out of the country along with his family and cronies twenty-eight years ago; we Pinoys knew they were corrupt.

The Case of Denise Cornejo and Cedric Lee, a Litmus Test for Pnoy and Philippine Justice

Now that the star attraction in the alleged Vhong Navarro rape incident is in police custody, the upcoming trial will be a litmus test for the Aquino administration as well as the Courts. The almost universal perception is that Philippine justice is broken and does not work. Laws are applied inequitably with the wealthy and powerful living almost above the law, while the common "tao" finds himself at the losing end of cases that usually drag on for years.

Obama's Visit a Shot in the Arm for a Struggling Ally

After essentially showing the American Military the door in the early '90s, Filipinos have of late come to the realization that they need their "Uncle Sam" more than they thought they did. And back then the United States was also more than happy to oblige as their Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission had been closing down hundreds of military installations all across the USA.

We Treasure Our Sierra Madre

In the1948 John Houston movie, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, three destitute Americans working as gold prospectors mining the Sierra Madre mountains in Mexico are confronted by bandits posing as mounted police (“Federales”). When they are asked to produce their badges, the chief bandit's response is classic: “Badges? We don’t need no stinking badges!” Published 04/20/2014
