(Topic: Why Filipino-Americans Need to Vote Democratic on November 4)

Your article hit the nail right on the head. Republicans are a danger to the country. They want to take America back to the dark ages. Pinoys like me will feel unwelcome once republicans take over completely.

I should commend PNL for giving Filipino residents and voters of America a little space to discuss politics and conditions here in the USA. Unlike other migrant communities Filipinos are so low profile. Attempts to make them into a political force, just like other minority groups started with a bang but eventually ended in a whimper. If only Filipino residents of the States would unite from East to West and move as one we could be a force to reckon here in the States. But why are we not? Well, that's another Topic for another Editorial for another day.

Democrats are what made America great. Republicans seem self centered and selfish. just want to keep all for themselves. All my friends are democrats and will on election day the dems will prevail I'm sure.

1) The TEA PARTY is the worst thing that could happen to the working middle class. Initially they appeared intent to fight govt. excess. But as they evolved their purpose showed that they were more harm than good to the middle class. Their objective is to stop the govt. from further taxing them (the Rich) because they are sick of the money being given away to "poor" Americans (think Welfare). They do not care about the middle class which, w/out the Tea Party will bear the brunt of govt. expense. The inevitable result would be to create only 2 Classes in US Society. The Haves and the Have-nots. Just like in the 3rd world countries.. ..(cont)

Many Pinoys in the US vote republican. They brought their bad voting habits with them when they moved to the US. Just look at who they elect back in Pinas. So naturally when they vote here palpak din. That is why many vote republican. Sayang!@!!

2) To achieve their objective the Tea Party manipulates the system thru Redistricting, making their bets unbeatable. Even conservative Republicans are at a loss as to what to do with them. Filipinos and other minorities should vote AGAINST ANY Tea Party Candidate. Tea Party has vested interests to protect (just like the Billionaires in the PHL). If at all the only thing that may result from them taking power is the elimination of FREEBIES like Welfare & Food Stamps. But nobody really knows what the effect of its elimination will be for the USA. For one thing there will be trouble. That's for sure.

Thanks for your honest article. America must go back to its roots and what made it a great world power. it must be inclusive and respect everyone's beliefs, not just white christians. The GOP is now controlled by racist and narrow minded people who want to destroy all what america stands for. So if you know whats good for US, dont vote GOP vote for democrats.

It is happening not just in the USA. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. The culprit is the so-called globalization where the greedy capitalist corporations all over the world took advantage of the cheap labor and poverty of the 3rd world to quintuple their earnings that only few in their circle share. Look at the list of Billionaires. They're not just Americans. They are from all over. One thing they have in common is money. Lots and lots of it. And they use it not to share but to amass. There is just too many poor people in this world, and too few rich ones who care.

Most Fil-Am don't bother going to the polls. Filipinos in the US don't seem have strong party affiliations, if any at all. Many are not registered voters; they are hardly knowledgeable regarding current political and social issues, thus, have no loyalty to any particular political party.

If you are not happy with what is going on economically in the USA, BLAME the UNIONS. They finally succeeded in killing the goose. With their exorbitant demands they fueled inflation. And with their limited outlook to preserve their lifestyle they drove businesses away. In retrospect they played into the hands of the GREEDY Capitalists. The Unions gave them an EXCUSE to export the jobs to other countries. The politicians know this but could not do anything but give lip service. Why? Because of the Lobbyist. Because of the political contribution they receive. Now that the world could be exploited by the capitalists we can only expect 3rd world standards to creep in our way of life, slowly.

I don't know much about the politics in U.S.A. But the Fil-Am should be asking themselves if they are better off with the policy of Democratic administration compared when the Republican party was in office. Are they getting the benefit from the Medicare program designed by the current administration. Is there a promise from either party for some sort of special program of recognition for overstaying Filipinos preparatory for obtaining a residency in United States? That would be critical to where their votes would go if this issue is important to them.

These days there's not much difference between the parties. Both are lobbyists driven. Both have private agendas to protect. Both are so intransigent about issues that they would rather shut the government down than negotiate with each other. I used to vote straight Democrat but not anymore. These days I only consider the candidate and his possibilities. America has become so divergent. The world has become so volatile. Old tried and true solutions to problems no longer work. That said it is still SAFER for a middle class person to retire and stay HERE in the USA than anywhere else. Life is what we make of it. Politicians and politics are just illusions at the end of the day.

In the scheme of things, the issue of American politics would come in, a distant second when its juxtapose with the current Philippine political dilemma. If the Philippines emerges from its economic doldrum and become a member of emerging nations, politics in U.S.A. or any other country will be perceived differently. It's critical therefore to confront the current corruption problem as its the key to a better standing in the world.

PNL, Let me quote you, "If conservative Republicans have their way, America will be a less inclusive, less tolerant, plutocracy where the vast majority have little or no say in government and only the rich and powerful get a fair shake." My reaction: You really think so? I think its the other way around. Look at the unemployment rate of the black community. It practically doubled. Look at the middle class at present, just how many of them can afford their college? Just how many are underemployed? Look at the healthcare system we have with the unchecked immigration policies, Did these programs gave us at least a headstart? Look at the gas prices.. I am sorry to say this, but i really think you got your facts reversed unless you actually did it that way intentionally.

PNL, Let me quote you, "Social safety nets set up decades ago like Social Security, Medicare and Unemployment Insurance will be dismantled or significantly scaled back so that everyone—even those incapable of fending for themselves—will be forced either sink or swim." My reaction: PNL, Now you are submitting into the cheap game of black propaganda. Republicans and Conservatives have their personal social securities too. The essence of America is to provide opportunities and facilitate the accommodation of these opportunities and not establishing a bonafide welfare state where people simply depend and nothing more.

When I moved here 20 years ago, I was already a U.S. citizen, I was a Martial law baby so I am a skeptic because growing up I needed to sift through the information in front of me, therefore I made it my business to listen from both sides. I decided to be a Republican because my values and beliefs are closer to this party, I am fiscally and socially conservative, I cannot be a Catholic and a democrat, however, I do not condemn people's choices and beliefs that's their private business, just don't impose it on me. The Democrats are a bunch of hypocrites, double standard, they espouse pro choice but pro life is no choice. They hated Sarah Palin, what's her sin, she dared to keep her baby even if the pre birth check informed her that she will a child with Down syndrome.

The basic difference between Republicans & Democrats is this, Republicans: They are predominantly Caucasians. They will accept you as someone who is different and they will give you the same thing other immigrants are getting BUT they do not encourage you to participate in their activities, especially political. It's as if they were saying: "Just follow our rules and you will be OK. But don't make any noise because we don't like that". The Democrats on the other hand accepts ANYONE, including the dregs of society and tries to make room for them. They can participate and do what they want. So if you are the conservative, traditional type you might not like it. This is only my opinion as an immigrant to the USA.

There is too much permissiveness and tolerance in this country ever since the civil rights act of the 60s. In fact the people that the law sought to protect are now the aggressors. There should be a return to the old values. And for some reason the Democrats appear to be against it. Which gave rise to the elitist Tea Party, exclusionary and discriminating, and accepted by a good number of caucasians who are tired of giving away freebies to people that do not want to work. The welfare govt. seems to be expanding, instead of limiting. This is not good for the working man.

You are asking Filipino Americans to vote Democratic because right wing extremists appear hell-bent on changing everything what America stands for. That a Republican win will make America less inclusive, less tolerant etc. But what about liberals who disallow prayers to be recited in classrooms, "Belen" not displayed in public places at Christmas time, would that be inclusive? Conservatives and Liberals propelled this country into what it is now. No one party should take credit for what it has become good or bad. What you need to tell the Filipino Americans is to be informed on the issues both locally and nationally. Doing what you did, you sound like a paid political operative by the Democratic party. An informed citizen helps make a country great.

There will be another civil war here first before it becomes another PHL. Things may not be as good as before but the USA is still no. 1 in the world as far as immigrants are concerned. The Democrats are losing support from minorities, not because of Republicans or other patriotic "white" Americans. It is because of the excesses and abuse of other "entitled" minorities. The impositions of these people are causing the safety net to break. And the Democrats seem to tolerate it, because of their votes. Look around. See them in malls, supermarkets, theaters, everywhere. Some of them have covered faces and unfriendly attitude. Pat Buchanan is right but because of "political correctness" he gets nothing but criticisms and jeers. I myself expect to be jeered with these comments.

I agree to most of your commentaries you have published, however, I disagree on the particular of the above commentary. You have a wrong understanding about the Republican party and what it stands. Your limited knowledge of the Republican Party does not tell all the party's concern about the citizen and immigrants to the country of America. We the Filipino-American particularly in my city are almost all are voting for the Republican Party. You are right that Filipino-American moved to America because of the opportunity and hard word reward us to advance economically but you did not mention the Filipino-American do not like give away for those who do not work hard and stay a liability to the society.

FILIPINO DOCTORS. The Editorial said it well. But you will be surprised that the only Filipinos who might be persuaded by the editorial are the laymen Pinoys. Filipino Doctors are something else. THEY HATE OBAMA and the Democrats. They HATE OBAMACARE. They would vote for a dog before they vote for a Democrat. In my community every Filipino doctor to the last man will vote Republican. The same thing with my relatives in L.A. Just mention Obama's name and you got yourself an argument.

The one person that did the Democrats the most political damage is NANCY PELOSI. Her idea of Speakership is to travel the world in style and at govt. expense with her daughters in tow. Legislation wise she is a BIG ZERO. She is something of an American De Lima, "full of sound and fury signifying nothing". She should never have been named Speaker. She did not have the cerebral wherewithal. She was too partisan and too much of a finger pointer. She was weighed and measured and found wanting.

You might as well expect that the original indictment of murder (TO APPEASE THE ANGRY CROWD) against Pemberton will be downgraded to involuntary homicide (because he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol) which carries a lesser sentence including shorter prison term.

Why must we always conclude that the US government is guilty of harboring an accused sailor for the recent murder.? Is there proof that he was murdered. Who is the murderer? If not for the oil and gas deposits close by, the US would have us all go to Hell. They are here for the same reason that the Chinese are claiming the islands bearing the oil and gas.. Unless the lesser friends of Americans wants the Chinese to take over, The US will not budge from here.

Mr GAGO: There is no honesty in the sex trade. We pay at our own risk. We don't even know that we have a safe and clean sex partner that is why we have to be protected. If it is P1000 a pop (as in the case of Laude) it stays that way; you could not be behaving like [someone] asking "Isa pa nga!"

Ed asked -"So why did they give their troops, many like Pemberton still in their teens, access to that city? "- BECAUSE- they can! Let's face it- when it comes to USA-RP relationship- the umbilical cord of Colony/colonizer was not completely cut. It is just an illusion that RP is a sovereign state. RP is nothing more than a client state wholly dependent upon USA in its foreign affairs, defense and other international dealings. AND-many Filipinos gladly accept the arrangement and happy that it is so-- to continue playing their part in the charade.

After a few untoward incidents, I have a gut feeling the boyfriend of Jeffrey Laude is also gay. It must be a love affair between persons of the same sex. That's probably the reason why Laude was denied a Visa by Germany as fiancée because Germany still don't recognize same sex marriage(?). What gave it away? Firstly, the open relationship between them; they must have slept together so the German must have known about "it" that it will always be "stokadohan;" secondly, macho man don't act irresponsibly. that is, when he tried to climb the fence of the Camp. I've known of 2 bakla who displayed such reaction under emotional distress. Just let him go!

Why should anyone say that the untimely death of a transgender and a member of the visiting forces in the Philippine is a shared responsibility. Both governments are never moral guardians of their own citizens or nationals. The government does not interfere with the sexual behavior or conduct of its respective citizens. If such conduct breaches the law of the country, both parties engaged in such conduct are dealt with accordingly.

[Someone's] logic makes no sense. In essence he is saying that homicide has a lesser degree of criminality compared to male prostitution. Laude could not be charged of prostitution because sex for money was not solicited publicly. Laude a street hooker? I have yet to see a transgender or male prostitute charged with peddling sex in the Philippines. Laude was in a bar in Olongapo that Pemberton and friends picked up and not in a whorehouse. To charge someone with male prostitution the police must do a sting operation and catch the male prostitute with "his" pants down!

What kind of Party is this UNA? Puro mga WALANGHIYA! They have total disrespect for the people. How can people like these be in power?

There is an Attorney named Jason which Antonio Tiu CEO of Sunchamp admitted is employed by this Company. This Atty. Jason is also a Binay. hmmm, did they really sell the hacienda?

Binay's rating is tanking and it will continue to tank even if there was a debate. I thought the BIR and the Sandiganbayan should have taken action. There is smoke and Binay with his allies (UNA, Tiu, etc) are acting as fire brigades attempting to put out the fire. There is no political lynching involved here. Wealth is not something that is difficult to hide. People have every right to know if indeed his wealth was legit!

It is becoming evident that the Chinaman Antonio Tiu is the Napoles in the Binay Plunder. This wheeler dealer continues to lie and cover for Binay despite massive evidence to the contrary. He must be confident that he could bribe his way out of any trouble.

Wannabe President Crook Binay must be on a full campaign mode. First he is courting the senior citizens voters of QC and promising them cakes and free movies. Then he will be sitting down with the ever powerful Bishops. I leave the senior citizens to their decisions. But I can't wait to hear what the Bishops will say. Here is a man facing multiple charges of Larceny, who would not show up in the Senate to answer questions but instead muddle the issues by talking about other things. And the Bishops will give him an audience. Usually in these meetings there is an envelope given to the Bishops as "Charitable Contributions". So, will the outcome depend on the amount in the envelope?

With the overwhelming seemingly solid evidences against Binay the latest being that one of Binay's cousin is the Gen. Manager of the Binay "aka" Sunchamp hacienda which has destroyed completely Tony Tiu's attempt to distance himself from Binay ,why is there a need for a debate? Sabi nga sa Ingles "if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it must be a duck". Do we still need to debate whether it is a chicken or a duck? Only the nagbulag-bulagang mga columnists ng Manila Times will still maintain Binay's innocence. Why did Dean Valdes tried to equate a lease-holder to an owner is beyond common sense. Why would you lease if you are already the owner?

Re: Headline.. Binay casts doubt on the true intent of the Senate investigation.. Mr. VP if the senate investigation is just a product of the imagination of the Senators you are right. However, what they have found is that you did have a 150 hectares hacienda, which you want the people to believe was already sold to another corporation SunChamp Agri Resort .The problem Mr. Binay is that you have not admitted that you are capable of buying such enormous/ vast track of lands as compared to the SALN which you have been reporting to the authorities..The Filipinos have the right to know if indeed you are a different kind of public servant as you claim. But so far the Binay that is being unraveled is the same pare pareho. Politicans who made it because of the abuse of their power.

The Philippines is in the rigor of shaking away from the culture of corruption. I hope this latest crop of corrupt officials will meet what's due them, and this will warn others of the same fate, if they don't change. However, I reiterate that this anti-corruption drive is not going to be easy for corruption has gone on for generations and is rooted in the country's custom and tradition.

There should be no let up in the zeal to pursue those involved with corruption in any shape or form. It's likely that success for this drive will be measured not in leaps and bounds but in minute insignificant detail, perhaps, in attitude, perhaps in the encouragement and hope, for a better tomorrow.

In the news: "Binay's Wife Post P70 K Bail For Graft and Malversation Raps". When did they change the process of criminal procedures? Check this out: When I was taking up law subjects (even in College of Commerce circa 59-61) and in Criminal Justice in U.S., there should be indictment, arrest, detention and bail hearing. Why is the bail posted before then? How did they determined the amount of bail for the offense without a hearing? No wonder Smith and this time Pemberton will go free with this procedure. U.S. Jurisprudence may think Pinas judicial system is funny.

Binay is acting like everything's normal. He is meeting with voters and talking with Bishops as though he and his family are not being accused of robbing the PHL of BILLIONS! By ignoring the conversation and campaigning he hopes the Filipino A.D.D. will kick in. He wants the conversation to turn into politics where he can regale the voters of his "achievements" and the "demolition job" of his political enemies. The way to stop this guy dead in his tracks is by filing Plunder Charges against him and his family before the Sandigan. That way he will be detained and he will have to focus on his defense. CALLING OMBUDSMAN. Time is running out.

I only watched for a short while the hearing about the ownership of the "hacienda" in Rosario, Batangas where Tiu, who claimed ownership, is the "guest". I have to leave because I can't bear watching the "committee" probing it being insulted/offended when Tiu has nothing but contempt to the senatongs with his "ngiting aso". They (senatongs) looked so pathetic vs. Tiu.

NEWS: Binay allies gatecrashed Senate hearing. Well, there you are. These hoodlums JV Bautista and the aswang Tiangco tried to impose themselves on the ongoing hearing. The Senators should not have merely refused. They should have declared these hoodlums in contempt and placed in detention. The Filipino people are being given a preview of what it would be like in a corrupt and disastrous Binay Presidency. For their own sake they should take notice of this and remember it come election time.

Some posters in this forum just can't take the truth that some people have "exciting experience" and kind of sixth sense. Check this out: When I posted a news report that Revilla made deposits to his bank accounts at the time he received the alleged "commission" from Napoles, I said madaling i-explain at lusotan iyan. I went to proceed to say he could claim it came from royalties of his old film and current salary as an actor. It was not long Revilla in another news report indeed claim the deposit came from his earnings from the series "Indio" alone P36 million, and the other deposits came from his wife (who is a movie star and businesswoman in her own right) and family.

Re: Sen Ramon "Bong" Revilla"...His lawyer has a new defense which can be considered one for Ripley's" Believe it or not".. He made so much money as a movie actor, so those accusation of Mr. Luy and those deposits of money are not from his prok barrel but from his movies..Mr. Revilla, I suggest you change attorneys now, but your situation can't be change by attorneys, You stole money you go to jail and under the lae the Plunder Law which you passed as senator Plunder is not bailable. Hindi nga nakpag bail si GMA ikaw pa.

In the news: "Dos, Don't On Nov. 1 & 2". This is in connection with "undas", "undras" or "ungas" whatever. But the rallyiest cry is "Sementerio ay irespito; Huwag kang baboy". Which reminds of again of this joke. A boy saw a pig and noticed the head is always down as it walked. So he asked his father: SON: "Tatay bakit palaging nakatungo ang baboy kung lumalakad". TATAY: "Nahihiya kasi siya sa kanyang kababoyan".

Someone aptly described, "The anti-corruption campaign of Noynoy is a big fat lie and was just a neatly packaged political campaign ruse meant to pull the collective leg of Filipinos who desperately needed someone and something to believe in. Noynoy has betrayed his people and his mandate. He has no business making overtures for a second term. In fact he ought to either resign or be removed." Sang-ayon po ako sa nagsasabi nito. Dapat managot si Noynoy. LINK

A word was inadvertently omitted : the Church is beginning to pay attention to gays and children as GOD's creation and disregard sexual orientation as a pathological disease. It should have been written as : "beginning to pay attention to gays and lesbians as children of GOD's creation..."

This statement from [someone] is a contradiction: "My next door neighbors, 2 of them, were club stripper. Of course during their "working time", they keep their identity (as bakla) but openly join our activities as neighbors." A bakla at night abut a lalakwe during the day fits the description of keeping one's sexual identity in the closet. English eni dong ! NAGPAPALUSOT KA NA NAMAN.

Adriano: Even assuming Revilla made millions in his movies, the studio pays him for the movie Bong starred; does that mean he keeps all those monies and not spend them at all, even a little bit? Moreover, payment for an actor/actress services comes under a contract paid for in full when the movie is completed. There is no such thing as payment up front. Even Pacquiao can't collect his purse before but after the fight whether he loses or wins. If Revilla claimed he made 40 million in his movie, was taxes not withheld and income went straight to his bank account? Too many unanswered questions about his wealth.

To the Genio that did some Google researching. Do not try papering us over about the difference between guides, schedules and forms- that is not the issue. Just use plain common sense-- computation for capital gains (or loss) requires declaration of the name of the corporation ; the quantity and class of shares , the selling unit price, the acquisition cost base, minus cost of the transaction and then compute for the net proceed of the transaction (either gain or loss) -- all these to (again for better emphasis) REQUIRED by CRA in your tax form and schedule!! I admit I am Hilong hilo in your ORIGINAL assertion that the Canadian government DOES NOT ASK for such list.

Why would you present an "evidence" that's NOT YOURS? You have read the arguments of Sen. Jinggoy P. Ejercito's lawyers in the media that based on what the law mandates, you cannot use an evidence that do not belonged to you. NOW, what can you say about Commission on Audit admitting they have no evidence/documents Sen. Jinggoy P. Ejercito got kickbacks from his PDAF? TALK when the court issue decisions and don't speculate. And if you speculate, just say in my opinion or view. Try to be impartial and fair.

[Someone]: I am not saying (probably Adriano, too) that you gotta believe it" that those deposits really came from his movie, TV series salary and even royalty. I said it sarcastically and in jest! (in other words lubusin na niya by citing those instances as defense) lokohan narin lang. Talagang sabitan lang ng sombrero ang bao mo!

Re: The Philippine bureaucracy..Government employees in the Philippines are not treated equally..employees of the Central Bank and government owned or controlled corporation are paid much higher than employees in the Judiciary like clerks in the Court system..The salaries of Judges are much lower than similar experienced lawyers in government owned or controlled corporations.. That is the reason there is rampant anomalies in the court system they are paid lower than their counterparts in some government agencies. Just an example where did the former chief Justice get $2,000,000 my guess is from pending case that is only a guess.

Lighter side of life: One of the world's dirtiest jokes. A recruit of the Foreign Legion was assigned in a remote desert Fort. A day after he arrived, a herd of camels arrived. To his shocked the legionnaires scrambled to grab a camel and began humping the animal. So he asked for transfer. Granted, to make the story short. He was again in another remote desert Fort. After a few days, he realized how lonely is the life of a legionnaire. So when a herd of camels arrived, he grabbed one and began humping the animal. So legionnaires were shocked. LEGIONNAIRE: "Gross! what are you doing! You're nasty!". RECRUIT: "What, and get stuck with an ugly camel if I don't move fast!". LEGIONNAIRE: "No. We ride those camels to town where the women are!"

Legend says Pinoys of PEFTOK were, well, legendary, in their bravery in the war. No offense intended. A platoon of U.N. forces were stopped by a machine gun, the platoon leader asked for volunteer to destroy the gun. First was a Kano but before he can take a step, the gun cut him down. But before dropping dead he yelled "long live the U.S.A.!". Next was a French (not the fries). He was also cut down but before he died he yelled "vive le France" or whatever. The next to volunteer was a Pinoy. As usual he was cut down too, but before dying he yelled, too "mga p*tang ina 'nyo, may araw rin kayo sa akin!". BTW, PEPTOK is acronym of Philippine Expeditionary Force To Korea. Supposed to be for civic duty, beats me how this one got to the front line.

Lighter side of life: A cruise ship was sinking but the captain says they can make the port if as least 3 will volunteer to jump overboard. Again, no offense intended. First to volunteer was a Kano (again?!). Before jumping he yelled (again?!) "Long live the U.S.A.!". The next to volunteer was another French (not the fries, again? ano ito repeat ng PEPTOK joke? not really). Before jumping into the sea, he also yelled (talagang PEPTOK ang akala 'nyo ha) "vive le Francia" or whatever. The third to volunteer was a Pinoy (lokohan na talaga ito! not really.). Same as PEPTOK joke? No, the Pinoy shouted, too this time "Mabuhay ang Pilipinas" and pushed overboard the insect standing next to him. See? hindi prapreho.

Lighter side of life: Tama nga naman si otoy. Check this out: Dalawang magkapatid nag tatagisan ng talino. KUYA: "Otoy, kung ikaw ay may apat na pan de sal, hiningi ko ang isa, ilan ang natitira sa iyo?" OTOY: "Apat". KUYA: Inulit ang tanong "Apat nga iyong pan de sal mo, hiningi ko ang isa, ilan ang natira?" OTOY: "Sinabi na ngang apat, eh". At sabay iyak dahil mapilit ang kuya. Narinig ng inay at inalam. INAY: "Ano ba ang pinagbangayan 'nyo?". KUYA: "Tanong ko kay Otoy, kung may apat siyang pan de sal hiningi ko ang isa ang sagot niya ay apat pa rin". INAY: "Otoy, tatlo na lang ang natitira sa iyo. Hiningi ng kuya ang isa, eh". OTOY: Lalong bumunghalit ng iyak waah "Apat pa rin, hindi ko naman ibinigay sa kanya ang isa, eh". waaah.

Lighter side of life: "Entergarden" (sa bisaya while I was growing up-actually kindergarten sa England pa) class. Magaling si Pedro sa arithmetic kaya lang binibilang niya muna ang daliri. TEACHER: "Pedro, what are 3 plus 3?" PEDRO: Started counting his fingers; "6 po ma'am". TEACHER: "Correct, pero you are cheating by counting your fingers. OK what are 4 plus 4?" PEDRO: Counting again his fingers "8 po ma'am". TEACHER: "Correct pero nandaya ka na naman. OK put your hands in your pockets. What are 5 plus 5?" PEDRO: Fidgeting his fingers in his pockets and came the answer "11 po ma'am". Baka may butas ang bulsa?

Both United States and Philippine Governments to Blame for Death of Jeffery "Jennifer" Laude

he United States and Philippine governments share the blame for the tragedy. Two young lives needlessly destroyed: the first, a young Filipino transgender found strangled inside a motel bathroom; the second a teenaged American serviceman now accused of murder. . Published 10/19/2014


Death of Filipino Transgender 'Jennifer' Laude Was Totally Preventable

The evening for the young US Marine and his Filipino date "Jennifer" began at the Ambyanz Disco Bar in Subic Bay, Olongapo and ended shortly before midnight at the Celzone Lodge where "Jennifer's" lifeless body was found leaning against the toilet bowl. Jennifer, it turns out was actually not originally a "she" but a "he." A Filipino transgender, Jeffrey Laude, 26, began calling himself "Jennifer" after medical procedures made him look more female than male. Published 10/14/2014
Sorry Mr. President But PNP Chief Alan Purisima Has to Go

What’s with Philippine civil servants these days? It seems that you can stick all their pictures on a wall; throw a dart; and whoever’s photo it land on, that person can be successfully prosecuted for graft. It is unbelievable how pervasive and widespread corruption has become. We go from one corruption scandal to the next and there seems to be no end in sight. Published 10/07/2014
Tear Down the Torre de Manila Building Being Built Behind the Rizal Monument?

According to the developer’s website, “Torre de Manila, DMCI Homes’ newest one-tower condominium, is an exclusive residential community right in the heart of the city.” As of this writing, the 49-story edifice is about halfway complete. But as it continues to rise, so too do the howls of protest from an eclectic collection of groups and individuals who want it torn down. Why? Torre de Manila will permanently mar the skyline behind the Rizal Monument. Published 10/01/2014
How Ferdinand Marcos’s Martial Law Continues Hurting Filipinos to This Day

On the evening of September 23, 1972, two days after it had taken effect, Ferdinand Marcos announced via live television from Malacañang Palace that he had placed the Philippines under Martial Law. It was a calculated move by a devious politician to keep himself in power beyond what the Constitution allowed. A staged ambush attempt against his Defense Secretary Juan Ponce Enrile was the main excuse Marcos (or “Macoy” as he was deridingly referred to back then) used to strip Filipinos of all their constitutional rights. With that, the diminutive Ilocano from the backwaters of Batac, Ilocos Norte became the despotic dictator for over a decade. Published 09/23/2014
Jejomar Binay Should Never Become President of the Philippines

In our July 25th editorial we asked if Vice President Jejomar Binay should be the next president of the Philippines. In this editorial we arrive at the definitive conclusion that that Binay should not be elected president. Since our last editorial, more witnesses have come forward with more allegations against the embattled Vice President. But our decision not to support Binay’s presidential bid is based on irrefutable public acts that in our opinion disqualify him from the presidency. Published 09/16/2014
