May 2010 Elections Is All About Trust, Leap of Faith

One of the greatest gifts maybe of democracy to citizens aside from having the right burn down effigies, throw eggplants and clash with policemen on riotous rallies is the priceless right to vote.  Suffrage alone can tell of its long reflective history for struggle for recognition.  People can and have the “power” to choose their leaders that will reflect their [...]

Kris Aquino Yap as Noynoy Aquino’s Spokesperson?
Kris Aquino Yap as Noynoy Aquino’s Spokesperson?

Noynoy Aquino for President and the Two Different Sides of this Political Whirlwind

Are we trying to pick a green young fruit that is still undergoing the yellowing process on its branch too early with our crying for a Noynoy Aquino for President?
