Stalled Development

  • Monday, 07 July 2014 03:15

Four and a half years into the term of the Aquino administration, despite the projected and portrayed economic development by some experts and by the talking heads of Malacanang, we are still a people wanting of "inclusive", "trickled down" or "intestinally felt" growth. These are all concepts which are shared by some economic and political experts, all of which are legitimate but do not fully capture the type of growth and development the country needs at this time.

Whole Sale Reform, Not Half Baked

  • Tuesday, 26 November 2013 01:38

In the past few days, we have had encouraging developments in the political landscape. The Supreme Court, by a vote of 14-0, declared the Priority Development Assistance (PDAF) or more commonly known as “pork barrels” unconstitutional. Ironically, in an unexpected turn of events, the House of Representatives Committee on Suffrage and Electoral Reform passed the consolidated bill that seeks to limit the political power exerted by individual families via the “Anti Political Dynasty Act of 2013.”

Wives and Children Deserve Better

  • Friday, 16 August 2013 11:03
If you’ve been keen on observing news items recently, marriage spats involving several celebrity personalities and politicians have been all over broadcasts, with many wives crying foul over abuse and mistreatment from their husbands after many years of being together. Well, these cases get the attention not really because of the nature or gravity of the abuse but because they are public figures and that anything they do would always be seen as an item for discussion in the media. But much as it is what it is for our media, what’s happening or what is at least being reported is a microcosm of what’s been happening in society today.
