(Topic: So, Should Jejomar Binay Be the Next President of the Philippines?)

Binay family is establishing a dynasty. Like the Marcoses as soon as they experience political position they don't want to step down. They are afraid that if they no longer held any political positions their life is in danger because of the bad anomaly they are doing behind the scene. It may take another generation before the political dynasty will cease in the Philippines cause majority of the politician have some dynasty already established in their locality. What is so pity is the future generation. It is time for the current generation to stop voting people with dynasty. It is time to stop it.

Oh no, not again! When we will learn our lesson? I don't think there's a need to elaborate on Jejomar Binay's political activities in this site, just the mere fact that his wife, daughters and son holding public office is reason enough to get rid of this family.... I believe if he will become president (hopefully NOT!!) we will go back to the same political turmoil in 2001 !!! God save our land....

God Forbid this man to win the Presidency because he is a distrustful, fraudulent, Robin Hood-like impostor who always announces his caring character for the poor! How can he be caring for poor when he became a billionaire while in office, together with his wife, son, and his two daughters! Imagine constructing a parking municipal garage for overpriced amount of 1.6 billion pesos, which is 635% overpriced. These are the people's money he and his son, Jun Jun Binay unscrupulously spent. VP Binay is as untrustworthy public official and concerned himself with money-making ventures in Makati. His free education and hospitalization is a public service duty of the municipal government that can afford as a prime rich City.

Let's face it, Vice-Pres J. Binay is a seasoned politician. As former mayor of Makati, he was able to establish strong political backings form his Makati constituents & was supported by the major corporations in the Ayala business hub. His pro-poor programs were extremely popular among the masa (bulwarte), accompanied by a high-tax base of Makati. Most of his projects were successful. Rumors will remain rumors. However, a plunder case against him might ultimately harm him if proven true. He's a wily fox that could not be cornered that easily. Charge that to his long political experience. I'm not pro-anybody in this issue. This is just my humble opinion. Peace.

If the survey is done among us in this forum, for sure, Jejomar Binay, will have a very low rating and he will never become President. But then, I saw the trend in this forum that while majority disagreed with Nancy Binay's candidacy for senator, she won overwhelmingly. It is worrying that Filipinos who are not aware of the negative realities of politics dominate the voting population and put bad and unqualified personalities in the winning circle. We, the literates, shall group together and influence our bobotante friends and relatives to vote wisely. Otherwise, Jejomar (Dark Cloud) Binay will be the next President courtesy of the bobotantes just like what happened to Nancy Binay, et. al. and dark cloud will prevail in the country during Jejomar Binay's term as President.

Limiting the growth of political dynasty will face great resistance in the Philippines because some 70% of members of Congress belong to a political family. Senator Aquino is Pnoy's nephew, Imelda is the mother of Bongbong, Binay has a daughter on both houses of congress, two Cayetanos and Estradas are in the senate, etc. There is a provision in the 1987 constitution about political dynasties but there is no implementing law to really give teeth to this constitutional provision. So pass a law is all that is needed, but isn't that quite too simplistic?

It's so sad, I'm in my 40's and I still haven't seen a honest President that puts his country men before himself. Is there any Filipino politician we can Trust?

Al Dabog: Binay was unknown in Makati in 1973. He gained his political badge and lifted to prominence when he was appointed by Cory Aquino as mayor of Makati. Prior to 73 he was a nobody, A MAN IN THE STREET and an inconsequential person like many of us.

Re: The Binay Presidency. As of now it would appear that a repeat of 1998 when Erap was VP and it appeared that his election to the presidency became inevitable. Now in the case of Binay though we now have social media but the vast majority of of Binay's voters have not seen a computer much less know what is facebook. Binay's advantage is being a former Mayor and a former President of the Mayor's league of the Phil. He has grass roots campaigners unless of course the plunder case filed against him snowballs, but I seriously doubt he can be stopped assuming no colonel or General in cahoots with other politicians or group of politicians suspend the Constitution ala FM in 1972.

The pro-Aquino editorial says, "Soon after he was installed as Mayor of Makati by President Cory Aqui-no, rumors started spreading that Binay would be "given" a unit or two in every high-rise condomi-nium building constructed in Makati." My take: I think si Chiquito mas gwapito pa kay sa hitsura nitong Binay. Binay was one of the hundreds if not thousands of beneficiaries (who wanted to be OICs-/mayor/gov.) after EDSA1. When Cory took over her main category in selecting OIC was how active is he/she in fighting vs. Macoy. Most of these OICs were crooks! Remember Enrile? He was given the defense portfolio right away. Nene Pimental became one of most prominent politicians during the TWA regime! Also these 2 senatongs voted for the kicking out of US bases in Pinas.

We all cast doubt on the moral integrity of Binay as chief executive. His political strategy in Makati was quite simple: give Makati residents cakes on their birthdays and they will forget their miseries for the next 364 days. Entertain them by giving them free movies passes. Give them wreaths as a symbol of commiserating and emphasizing (I feel your pain). Those moves work! Could he replicate that nationwide as President?

I do believe that the Filipino voters [laborers, teachers, lawyers, journalists, students & intellectuals] are responsible for the perpetuation of corrupt political dynasties like Binay's dynasty, Aquino's dynasty, Marcos's dynasty so on & so forth. I don't blame the less-educated masses for their lack of wisdom to vote wisely because the ignorant, stupid & uneducated poor voters are the flesh & blood of political dynasty: to teach the generation of Filipino people not how to live well in democracy, but how to die well in disgrace before the eyes of the civilized world.

Re: Physical Condition of the VP.. Jojo Binay is 72 years old now.. there are rumors that he has some ailments related to his Kidney. Remember in 1983 when FM had a kidney transplant the M.D. who reported it in American newspapers was later found stabbed multiple times. According to the controlled press, the doctor was kidnapped and killed by "rebels" or communists. Sooner or later during the campaign Binay has to come out with his personal doctor and admit to what his ailments are.

The growth of Makati as a commercial district could not be attributed to Jejomar Binay and his family but to the Ayala Corporation. What was Makati today was "Hacienda San Pedro de Macati" which was owned by the Jesuits. Don Jose Bonficatio Roxas of the Ayala Roxas family who purchased it for 52,800 pesos. I do not know the role of the Elizaldes in Makati but I do know that the Ayala Center rose during the term of Mayor Banola and the first skyscraper was erected in 1990 when Binay was appointed mayor. Makati and Mendiola were favorite spots to hold rallies and demonstrations against the APO. I happened to work in Makati during that time. Saan ka Deo?

Binay intervening in China's law to execute drug dealers or carriers (mules) is good for publicity. It embellishes his image that he cares kuno. The truth of the matter is that he can't stop the execution or could he ask the Chinese government to spare the life of a condemned man. Mission unaccomplished! Gumastos lang cya sa trip at taxpayers expense. JUNKET YON BABY!

Binay is the most crooked mayor in Phil. history. He started the Binay crook political dynasty in Makati. From huge ninakaw pera his family got elected to different positions without experiences like Nancy Binay when she asked "WHAT'S WRONG WITH MY OUTFIT?" None, nothing wrong with your outfit senator. You don't even look like a turkey, you look more a damn "PEACOCK".

RE: One blogger from Canada specifically Ontario wrote: "PNL should request for an interview with Mr Binay just like CNN does..." Mr. Blogger the question is why would Mr. Binay grant the request of PNL, Oh because PNL is like CNN? Are you delusional? Mr. Binay would maybe accept a request from any of the Philippine dailies or may be ABS-CBN because it is like CNN see what I mean.

On Marijuana: In fairness to Deo being the music man playing the fear of criminality with MarieJane's legalization. Here are the facts: (1)Marijuana is legal in US, Canada and 5 European countries. (2) When marijuana was used on mice, an anti-cancer effect was seen and also impaired brain activity (3) In adults inhaling marijuana induces euphoria (a sense of relief from anxiety or stress).

Forget about those cockamamie claim about Jesus having no last name and Christ in INC. For the record: "Christ (/kraɪst/) (ancient Greek: Χριστός, Christós, meaning 'anointed') is a translation of the Hebrew מָשִׁיחַ (Māšîaḥ) and the Syriac ܡܫܝܚܐ (M'shiha), the Messiah, and is used as a title for Jesus in the New Testament.[3][4] In common usage, "Christ" is generally treated as synonymous with Jesus of Nazareth.[4][5] The followers of Jesus became known as Christians (as in Acts 11:26) because they believed Jesus to be the Messiah (Christós) prophesied in the Hebrew Bible."

To [someone] who said, "Montaigne's admonition to educate your rulers……" How would you suggest "educating" the rulers in the PHL? A tyrant is tyrant is a tyrant. A crook is a crook is a crook.

The Communist Groups were hard at work protesting Aquino's SONA speech. They have all kinds of demands which they have been presenting to every sitting President that ever delivered a SONA address. The sight of these communists singing their militant songs should discourage any well-meaning leader from doing what good he could. The truth is, for as long as there is a Forbes Park amidst colonies of squatters in the slums there will always be Communists. Theirs is a class war. But their propaganda of "Lahat pantay pantay" will never happen. Not in a materialistic PHL. There should be a Survey not only about what Filipinos think of their leaders. There should also be a rated survey about what Filipinos think of EACH OTHER.

Father Bernas, a constitutionalist, says that impeaching President Aquino III who violated the Constitution & committed corruption through DAP is a waste of time. Rep. Tupas, a lawyer, agrees with him. I think the power of impeachment is one of the promises of the Constitution to make public servants accountable for their actions. In criminal law, there is a notion of prevention, which is one of the aims of punishment. How can you prevent a corrupt public servant from stealing taxpayers' monies without the power of impeachment? It seems that Father Bernas & Rep. Tupas are willing to sacrifice the common good [the future of the Filipino people] for a few rotten public servants. You prefer to punish the innocent Filipino taxpayers' for the crimes committed by their leaders.

With all the publicity the PDAF anomalies got, it still did not solicits an outrage from Pinoys in general. Outrage came from netizens, but that's about it. But why the indifference of Pinoys of these outrageous thievery? So many theories have been cited but it never really hit the head. I will state some, but do not expect tremble and after shock. Check this out: Poor and unemployed (25% in the latest estimate) do not pay taxes via ITR (Income Tax Returns), so why be concerned? Ditto in the middle class (those gainfully employed and filed ITR). They got back withheld taxes via refund. Upper middle class & "rich". Pay little taxes (cheating) so they lay low, (hindi makialam) baka mapansin pa kung pumiyaet sila. So, you see most Pinoy think it's not their taxes being stolen! You disagree?

The Communists Groups are so insistent on impeaching Aquino. They even wore the color Peach to stress their point. And they know very well that if Aquino goes Binay takes over. Does these Communists know something about Binay that we don't? Is it possible that this early they've already made an accommodation with Binay? Please take note that as these events transpire the Plunder cases against Enrile et al fade from the filipinos' consciousness. Suddenly, Aquino, who did not even pocket a cent is the one who is on the spot. The President who was fighting big time corruption of big time people is now being targeted big time. Aren't you confused enough? Bakit ganito ang mga Filipino?

I think the eerie proposals of Father Bernas & Rep. Tupas that "it is a waste of time & a wishful thinking" to impeach President Aquino III, who is allegedly accused of committing an unconstitutional act, a crime of bribery & other illegal conducts motivated by tainted DAP must be rejected outright for obvious reason that no man is above the Constitution, or the law of the land. While you must remain vigilant toward the perpetuation or institutionalization of corruption, you must also take care to preserve the promises of the Constitution: the power of impeachment as a mechanism for accountability & transparency that will prevent the rise of corrupt political dynasty.

I think Senator Drillon's admonition "to recapture the public trust of the Filipino people" is a naked hypocritical invitation that the Filipino people must turn a blind eye to the glaring flaws & prevailing corrupt practices of public servants. If Senator Drillon had been the president of the Republic of the Philippines, he would let the Constitution be executed, shut down the free press & sent the Filipino voters to Siberia, or Communist China's version of the gulag. The Filipino people must be vigilant about the incurable suckers pretending to be public servants. The Republic of the Philippines will not survive widespread corruption. We could weave a garland of pearls & even kiss the hem of a true hero, patriot & statesman like Apolonario Mabini if he were still alive today.

Those lawmakers who walked out before the President delivered his SONA are stupid, disrespectful and showed a gesture of uncivilized, uneducated lawmakers. If they don't respect the person, Pres Benigno Aquino III, at least as lawmakers, they should have respected the position. What they did was an insult not only to the office of the President but to the Filipino as a whole.

I think it is not difficult to figure out Prefessor STA MARIA's thesis based on Legal Liberalism [the interactions or combinations of different theories or legal philosophical interpretation of the Constitution]. Of course, the bounderies between Executive, Judiciary & Legislative functions aren't fixed & have an element of flexibility or permeability. But I don't think the Philippine Supreme Court justice aren't aware of the adaptive nature of law. But a legal scholar noted that "in law [as other sciences], there are certain broad & fixed principles, which embody the essence of the system, & remain unchanged amidst the fluctuations of successive ages."

IT'S DESTINY TO BECOME THE PRESIDENT. MY HUMBLE SUGGESTION TO MY FELLOW FILIPINOS, USE YOUR HEART AND MIND BEFORE VOTING. START LOVING THE PHILIPPINES MORE AND DO WHAT'S RIGHT. LET'S ALL BE A MESSENGER OF GOOD NEWS. I DON'T BELIEVE FOR A MINUTE THAT FILIPINOS WON'T VOTE RIGHTEOUSLY IN THE NEXT ELECTION. GOD BLESS THE PHILIPPINES

[Someone] should never get ecstatic that he is being noticed. Honestly, people are reading his comments not for the intellectual value of his thoughts but for all the bs in them. Readers are not interested in the opinions of Sta Maria, San Pedro or Sanicolas because readers do not know them. Like any good writer give the readers the source ( book title, page, etc.) where those lifted remarks were taken. Restating what is obvious to increase the word count in a blog is not journalism but parroting . Like ibong pipit sa taas nang isang kahoy. Do I trust you? Hell NO.

Bago magtalumpati ang Pangulong Aquino ay nag walk-out ang ilang kongresista na miyembro ng Makabayan bloc. Kabilang sa mga nag walk-out sina Bayan Muna Reps. Neri Colmenares at Carlos Zarate, Act party­list Antonio Tinio, Gabriela partylist Reps. Emmi de Jesus at Luz Ilagan, Kabataan partylist Rep.Terry Ridon at Anakpawis Fernando Hicap. Sila ang mga bastos at hindi dapat tularan. Nagpapagulo sa katahimikan ng Pilipinas. Giit ng mga kongresista, ang kanilang pagwawalk out ay bilang pagtutol sa pekeng agenda ng Pangulo at dahil na rin sa nadungisan na ang pangulo ng kontrobersiya tulad ng DAP at pork barrel scam.

Juana Change.... nagpapansin at nagpapatakaw exsena. Bakit ba binibigyan pa ng oras ang gaya nila? Mga walang kwenta at walang class para ipakita pa ang mga negatibong nakakasira sa kaisipan lalo na sa kabataan. Ang media naman, gustong-gusto yong mga negatibong ipakita lagi sa madlang people. Ngayong maayos naman at tapat sa tungkulin at hindi corrupt ang presidente, bakit hindi nila hayaan at bigyan ng pagkakataon na maipakita pa ng lubos. Hindi pa naman tapos ang kanyang termino. Napakamanhid naman nila para hindi maramdaman ang mga pagbabago. Syempre hindi malahat pa, pero merong pagbabago. Mga hypokrito at gusto lang mangontra.

Post- SONA the professional hecklers specially Clavio are it again on the DAP. Wala kana bang mapansin na masama sa gobyerno? How about the SALNs of the Justices? Bakit takot kayong mag-criticize sa mga justices? Kayong nandiyan sa dzbb (daming zatzat bayarang broadcasters) Regarding the poor remaining poor? What happened to the billions in cash transfers to these people? They will never say that they are a little bit better which is would be a lie bec. they received the government money. Just like some Yolanda victims saying they haven't received help despite a majority of them has been given relief goods for 8 months now.

I think President Aquino III's SONA will not cure his ignorance of the essence of the principle of separation of powers in a constitutional democracy. His failure to respect the indispensable authority of the Supreme Court will not inspire the Filipino people & their children to obey the laws & uphold the Constitution. All of us must obey the Constitution if we want to live with one another in a civilized democratic form of government. In fact, the failure of President Aquino III to defend the territorial integrity of the Philippines against Communist Chinese threat will never make him a statesman. Protect & defend the Philippines against internal & external enemies, or give the Filipino people a free & an independent nation first so that their children will live in peace.

In the news: "Where did P170 Million Go?-Al S Vitangcol". I understand this is about "grease money" on the bidding for maintenance and supplies of MRT 3 amount to $30 million (according to the news report). I assumed this is the rail mass transit of Metro Manila. Although that amount (P170 Million) is loose change compared to anomalies involving PDAF, that's gigantic considering that the rail mass transit is not that big. Somehow they have to make a killing right away; the next multi-million dollar transaction for similar transaction may not come till the next light years.

You may want to add this historical trivia for Makati: 1) Makati has had 21 mayors since Macalino Magsaysay in 1901. 2). Ateneo University, the Jesuit run school that the man from Taft detest so much, is in Makati too. 3) The people living in barangay Forbes Park are fewer now. It is down by a thousand, from 3420 to 2533. Bel Air doubled its population 4) Someday when Deo visits Pinas on his 80th birthday he would see a monorail connecting Makati to Bonifacio Global City and NAIA. SWEET! Have you been to BGC, Deo?

The provisions are so "detailed" and "so wide-embracing" yet so vague that there are no more elbow room left for "growth". Tongress are having a hard time making (daw) laws to supplement it.

[Someone] is distorting history and cited Thomas More. More was beheaded because he opposed the King as the Supreme Head of the Church of England. More was a vocal critic of the KING. He was an advocate of the separation of the church and state. This man from Taft believes PNoy should be impeached for violating the constitution. He should be beheaded like More for being a critic of the Supreme Court. Supreme Court is not the KING. The SC's decision on DAP is not in effect yet and SC has to listen to the motion of reconsideration. This is a classic example of an argument that had crossed the line of insanity and total madness.

The right to speak is a fundamental right. The president could criticize the Supreme Court's decision but once it becomes final and executory the president must enforce it. It could be insulting for Congress to have passed that law thrown out by the highest court, but it could always overturn it by passing another law. That is the beauty of democracy: checks and balance. The problem with our justices, however is that their decision violates the standards of good sense. It is driven more by beliefs and opinions more that a real interpretation of the intent of the law. WHAT SAY YOU?

I think you don't need to be a lawyer like Professor MEL STA MARIA (FEU-Ateneo) to understand that it is not the job of the Philippine Supreme Court to accommodate President Aquino III's distorted Darwinian interpretation of the provisions on DAP. President Aquino III could not accuse the SC of intellectual dishonesty for declaring DAP as unconstitutional. PNOY must understand by now that stretching or molding the constitutional meanings of the different provisions of DAP through the prism of Daang Matuwid social-economic programs is not the job of the Supreme Court.

It is always the right thing to go after ELITE CORRUPTION not only against elective officials, like congress people, governors and mayors but also against appointive positions like justices and judges. The latter are untouchables and have the last word in the administration of justice. It is about time that they (judges and justices) too have a taste of the bitter pill they prescribe to others. I begin to wonder about the case of justice Ong, who was found guilty for gross misconduct, dishonesty and impropriety in the Sandiganbayan. He is no longer mentioned in the press. Is this how powerful the courts are in suppressing the news or creating news blackout? NAGBAYARAN cguro. Remember Ong is the highest paid justice in that court and Arroyo appointed him.

I think Philippine Democracy is growing weaker because public funds to be used to support public education's global competitiveness, public school teachers' decent salary, AFP's modernization to challenge the threat of Chinese Communism & the ethical-moral resources that make Philippine Democracy strong in the 21st century are being squandered by some selfish, greedy & corrupt Filipino public servants. Moreover, the white-collar criminals, street criminals, terrorists & human rights violators [extra-judicial killings of journalists & innocent civilians] must be jailed. I don't blame the Filipino people if the mood of the nation is still bleak or sullen after President Aquino's melodramatic SONA. The public must always remember that "eternal vigilance is the price of freedom or liberty."

The INC is still in the news. They just established 8 for Guinness Book of World Records. There's no questioned that they also used a Bible with variations from Catholic and Protestant versions in the same token Catholic and Protestant Bibles also differs. But Catholic and Protestant are Christians because they believe in the Divinity (Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, therefore also God) of Jesus Christ but INC don't believe all they thought are craps about Jesus. And the most telling is they don't acknowledged the cross which is the symbol of Christians. Obviously if a religion don't believe all of above, they are not Christian or Christian church. Although the English equivalent of "Iglesia Ni Cristo" is "Church Of Christ", there's more than just a translations.

I do believe that ancient & modern thinkers agree that stupid voters [stupid=unreasonable, foolhardy, irrational, aimless, unwise, irresponsible, etc.] are those who support corrupt, dishonest, greedy, unethical, & immoral Filipino political candidates to hold public office or trust. In fact, fanatic voters are more dangerous than stupid & ignorant voters. Why? I think fanatic voters believe that absolute obedience & blind loyalty to corrupt politicians & fundamentalist religious preachers are the most important attributes of citizens in a mobocracy, which is an extreme form of democratic governance that flourishes in a third world democracy like the Philippines.

RE: The Pnoy's SONA.. I watched the SONA highlights at 24 Oras and you feel the president is an upright and very honest person, it just bad that he can't serve more than 6 years. When he speaks you can feel his sincerity and honesty he might not have fulfilled some of his promises to the poor but he is trying his best.. Whereas when other politicians speak, especially those who are now guests at the PNP detention center you can immediately feel they are charlatans. Mentirosos. That is the reason they are in jail.

But there is probably a grain of truth that political life has a dimension of emotional component, for example cold rationality. Pagtatawanan lang kayo ng world leaders kung nakikitang humahangolngol at umiyak na parang bata ang hinalal ninyong member the iluminados Cojuangco-Aquino dynasty sa television.

"The Bible tells us in 1 John 4:1: "Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are of God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world."

His total apostasy doctrine is in flat contradiction to Christ’s teaching. There is no way that Iglesia ni Cristo can be the true Church of Christ". INC is Cult.

If this guy is a teacher it is horrible to think this guy standing in front of a class and haranguing the students with incomplete sentences, misinterpretations and pompous remarks like stupid and ignorant. No wonder other countries do not consider College degrees in the PHL as equal to theirs. I remember this guy calling the Domestic OFWs "modern slaves".

The fear of constitutional crises is hogwash. If the motion for reconsideration reverses the original decision regarding DAP all projects have to proceed but if the motion for reconsideration were dismissed, then the President has no recourse but to stop those projects considered unconstitutional. Congress could then clear those vague and ambiguous language about the law. Justices MUST interpret the intent of the law and should not be swayed by what they believe or think. That is democracy and checks and balance at work!

These party list members who walked out of Congress during the SONA are not acting as people's representatives and are not giving dignity to the office they hold. It is disrespectful and unprofessional. These party-list members are paid to attend sessions of Congress. If they were in school, their actions would be equivalent to ' CUTTING CLASSES." They are better off joing protestors outside of Congress raising their voices until their vocal cords snap. They should be marked ABSENT in the attendance record of the house. PROVOCATEURS!

In the news: "Whistle Blowers Group Backs Aquino". I wonder if whistle blowers in Pinas get some reward for taxes recovered. In the U.S. whistle blowers get as much as 15%-30%. If they are giving this reward to Pinas counterpart of the U.S., more people would be willing to exposed tax evaders and scammers.

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
