There are people – hangers on – who seem to believe that so long as they shout ‘Duterte, Duterte’ with the rest of us, they will be able to hide their true colors. These are the same politicians who would have gladly crucified Duterte if he had lost to Roxas.

Excuse me, but we are not the idiots that you think we are. Neknek nyo.

We heard that a very vocal supporter of President Duterte, who ran and lost in the last elections, is lobbying to be appointed as the next DSWD Secretary. She hopes to ride the department all the way to the senate. Good luck na lang sa yo.

Judy Taguiwalo left some pretty big shoes to fill, and people expect the next person who sits in her seat to be above reproach. Hindi pwede ang pa-cute cute lang dyan.

Have you noticed that the people who are most upset about how President Duterte is solving the problem of illegal drugs are the same people who allowed to problem to grow this big in the first place? They  were either too blind to see what was happening under their watch, or it was simply in their best interest to turn a blind eye.

The irony of mainstream media is that they’ve been speaking truth to power for so long that they have become powerful themselves. It is up to all of us in social media to speak up and call them out for their abuses. It is time to end mainstream media’s monopoly on the distribution of news and information.

Media should not have the exclusive privilege to set the national agenda. That is a right reserved for the people.

When people ask me why social media is full of hate and anger against the Liberal Party, I tell them to imagine being fed shit for thirty years and believing that it was cake. Pigil pa nga yan sa lagay na yan.

Marcos was bad, but those who replaced him were worse because they should have known better. It’s like Cinderella being rescued from her evil stepmother, only to be raped by Prince Charming.

UN Special Rapporteur Agnes Callamard talks about having “respect for the victims, respect for the law, (and) respect for due process.”

But what about respect for our sovereignty and our choice as a people, don’t those things count too? This is arrogance worthy of a colonial master talking to her slaves. Paki sampal nga ito ng realidad na hindi na nila tayo pwedeng alipinin.

For someone who has declined President Duterte’s offer of a public debate because her “standards cannot be upheld when publicly debating these sensitive matters,” UN Special Rapporteur Agnes Callamard certainly has been very active on Twitter. Talk about double standards.

Watching Trillanes, Gordon, and Sotto arguing is like watching three guys who can’t get it up arguing about who has the biggest dick. It doesn’t fucking matter!

The senate circus would be hilarious if it wasn’t costing the people a ton of money to keep these guys in office. It’s our money people – IT’S OUR MONEY.
