The May 9, 2016 national elections in the Philippines that saw the rise of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte to power drew the active participation of the electorate in the intense debates, thanks in large measure to social media.

Exchanges were so passionate at all levels that relationships were strained even among families and friends. When Duterte was vocal to his displeasure to statements from foreign observers, some fear the country's relationship with other countries would be strained as well.
But first, who is Duterte and why is he popular?

If a principled man fits the bigoted bill, then isn't it then absolutely alright to be called a bigot! Men of principle should take it as a compliment from here on.
In fact, this is now what I believe: principled bigotry is a fundamental right!
What do you think?

When jihadists came conquering Europe in the Middle Ages, predominantly Christian Europe fought back through what is now known as the Crusades. Will it come to that?

Finding out which street is which can sometimes feel like a chase. I have come to know a good number of streets during my trying years in Metro Manila as a newcomer. But then, just when I have gotten used to the names, the Lords of street names changed their names.
Most of the street chase that I know are in Makati City:
- BUENDIA (a major street in Makati that intersects Ayala and EDSA) ... they changed the name to Sen Gil Puyat Ave decades back; but people still call it Buendia.

How can I disagree with forbidding surveys as proposed by Tulfo during election time? Indeed, if we ban our media from discussing merits of a case in a litigation, how much more with the selection process for the country's top position?
Surveys defeat the spirit of the campaign period. It influences people in a way that will detrimental to the country.
Indeed, "If judges, supposedly men and women of letters, could be influenced by the discussion of the pros and cons of a criminal or civil case in media, more so the ignorant voters who are easily swayed."
How can I disagree with that? In fact, I am completely sold out to that!
"If judges, supposedly men and women of letters, could be influenced by the discussion of the pros and cons of a criminal or civil case in media, more so the ignorant voters who are easily swayed."
