Poe candidacy for president beneficial to country

The way events are shaping up it looks like the Filipinos are looking favorably at Sen. Grace Poe’s presidential run in 2016 election.

I thought at first that it was too early for the neophyte senator to aspire for the presidency, but it is not about eagerness or ambitiousness that is driving her for it, rather it is the clamor of the people that is pushing her for it. 416 more words

Aquino’s ‘tuwid na daan’ made crooked by cabinet members

President Benigno Aquino (PNoy) is well known for his incorruptibility, or so it seems, and it is for this reason that he has been mouthing the mantra of ‘tuwid na daan’ (straight path) as the centerpiece of his administration every time an occasion calls for him to inculcate it in the minds of people. 594 more words
