The Anti-Pinoy “Rip-Off”


“If I’d written all the truth I knew for the past ten years, about 600 people—including me—would be rotting in prison cells from Rio to Seattle today. Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism.” ( Hunter Thompson, 1937 – 2005 U.S. writer and journalist). The Anti-Pinoy is a blog site which is…

SCORP Is In Revolt Over Funds!


SCORP’s  feather is ruffled over the budget proposal that hikes only one BILLION of its previous budget from what it  perceived requirement of P27.1 Billion for 2011. Malacanang submitted to Congress on August 24 a P14.3  Billion budget for the judiciary which was one billion more than its previous budget and the SCORP, through its…

“Let Us All Work For the Good of the Nation”


I have a different view on Reyn Barnido, the blogger who made a scathing remark on the President.  While he exhibits some well-meaning concerns about the direction the present administration was pursuing, his thinking, just like the  officials of Pinoys whom he considers “parochial”,  was also insular.

Why Is Rep. Lagman Afraid of the Truth?

Order NO. 1 creating the Truth Commission. With…

If We Are Gullible, So Must The People!


Some people I have considered literate had been taken for a hilarious ride by the Magdalo Group of soldiers.  The Magdalo Group is version 2 of RAM (Reform the Armed Forces Movement) by Senator Gregorio Honasan and the members of this group are transactional operators just like RAM members; they too are brash, ambitious, adventurous…

The Sex Scandal Continues….


        The  sex drama online between Ms. Katrina and Mr. Kho had spilled over the Senate floor and everyone got wet,  literally and figuratively.   The august chamber on cue from Senator Jamby Madrigal,  Committee Chairman on Youth, Women and Family Relations had summoned, on suggestion from Senator Bong Revilla, another movie actor,  both artists in…

Tehankee, Estrada and Martinez Pardon, A Cruel Politics!


            I had been a GMA admirer, partly because I respect her late father-president, Diosdado Macapagal.  Despite her being involved in the 2004 election cheating (“Hello Garci”), I still gave her the benefit of the doubt and had consoled myself with the idea of a “movie” star as President is “gross” compared to an economist at…
