"No wonder China and MILF would not also attempt to cover their efforts to hoodwink PHL. Hoodwinking seems to be natural to PHL politics, so how can PHL complain."

"In his speech, BS Aquino was so proud of giving away public funds to the poor. He said so himself: 'Since 2010, over P232 billion has been spent on the 4Ps program'. But he shouldn’t really consider that an achievement. It is so easy to give money away, specially when it is not his money to begin with."
Philippine President Benigno Simeon (BS) Aquino’s speeches quite often make me laugh and cringe at the same time. Everything about his speeches is a joke – the way he delivers them and the way thes...

"So in essence, I don’t really have a problem with Manny Pacquiao himself or his upcoming fight. What I do have a problem with are the people who seem to think that he will be the hero who will somehow save the country in the same vein that there are still people who think that Noynoy Aquino will somehow be able to pull the Philippines out of its sorry condition."

"Whether the Pacman wins or loses, Filipinos will still be faced with having to choose among the same assortment of conmen and crooks that are the only 'winnable' options for the 2016 presidential elections."
The way Manny Pacquiao fever continues to mount in the lead up to his fight with the much-reviled Floyd Mayweather, you'd think this seminal event is the be-all-end-all of Filipinodom. But, step ba...

Shit's unrelated but, why no new videos by GRP since 2011?

"B.S. Aquino 3rd has about as much impact on the stock market as your Mom does; if your Mom happens to be an investor, or a key person at a listed company, then she has more."

"The cosmic horror genre was popularized by American author H.P. Lovecraft and his Cthulhu Mythos which was mostly about humanity being at the mercy of ancient and unspeakable entities that were somewhere between advanced aliens and living gods."
I am a big lover of horror stories. Even as a young boy, I was always fascinated by stories of ghouls and goblins. During the Halloween season, I was both excited and fearful when the evening news ...

"...the program provided mayors, congressmen, governors and even senators more media mileage as they can ride on the popularity of the program with the poor whom this and past administrations turned into dependents..."

"Why do they need to go to other countries where the laws are all too unreasonable and be forced to do unpleasant or outright dangerous jobs? Why can’t they just work here with their families and have a stable occupation that can promise them and their children a bright future?"
Okay I'm sure a lot of you have heard about the article that praises the Philippines with a lot of "I love the Philippines..." because of its allegedly "good" traits. This is going to be very simil...

"Unfortunately, despite claims that United States courts imply it exists, not even his closest family members believe this whole thing. In fact, the judge who ruled in favor of Roxas was dismissed from his job in 2011 specifically because he believed (without evidence) that the golden Buddha existed."
Of course there aren't just five; history, after all, is just a timeline perceived by those who know how to write it. What's wrong about all of this is that people do still accept inaccuracies as f...

"Schools and universities have their alibis and reasons to act as ‘Pilates’ to clear themselves of their responsibilities as the government institutions do whenever cases of deaths by hazing occur."
My wife and I are now in the final stretch of our scouting activity for the best college for our son. I recently realized that best way to really get to know the culture of a school is to go past t...

"So what if Pacquiao wins? The problems mentioned above aren’t going to go anywhere. We will be stuck with the same politicians, the same media, the same poverty and the same retarded society even if Pacquiao manages to get the best of Mayweather."
Ladies and gentlemen, Pacquiao's up and coming fight with Mayweather is only just a few weeks away from now. Already, I hear people everywhere clamoring for a chance to be heard on how much they su...

"So please people, let’s shut up, even for just a while; not just verbally but also visually and culturally. Instead of shouting our alleged 'achievements' at everyone around us and instead of bellowing at our critics, let us first take a step back, take a few deep breaths, close our eyes and…"
The Philippines is a country with great potential, I will not deny that. However, I will go on to note that time and time again we fail to make anything out of these potentials and continue to flou...
