My opinion about legislating same sex marriage

If ever I become Senator, I would approve any proposed legislation to allow LGBT to get married, HOWEVER with a special provision that it be allowed only by those who tolerate it, without prejudice to the service provider's rights of refusal. Not everything that is legal can be pushed for consumption down the throat of all - the minister and owner of the business still has rights to conspicuously display a signage that such thing is not allowed in his establishment. Forcing a religious minister to marry a LBGT couple is similar to forcing in pork into the mouth of Muslims, it's gonna result to armed conflict. If a particular minister refuses, then the customer should just find some other minister. I cannot allow a legal charge against those who refuse. This is how my egalitarian ideology puts this issue in proper order.

Election is not gambling

ELECTION IS NOT GAMBLING The only prize we get if we vote for the winnable brands of the usual politicians is the same frustration and disappointment that we get in the government’s performance now. We, the people, will be loser in the end if we vote for those who appear to be winnable in surveys an advertisements. Let's take the road less travelled by increasing our curiosity and liking for new brands of politicians who braved to challenge the usual winners. There is more hope in new names because their feet are in our shoes – they feel the same frustration as we do.

Mary Jane Veloso

Mary Jane Veloso in jail for 5 years, unattended by PNoy. PNoy did a cramming to prevent further decline of his reputation.

Limang taon nang nakakulong yan si Mary Jane veloso at hindi inaasikaso ni PNoy Administration. Bumawi na lang si PNoy sa iba pang mga nakakulong na Pilipino OFWs sa ibang bansa. Kung sincere siya, ang dami iyang opportunity para tumulong sa dami nyang mga distressed OFWs, kung talagang sincere siya.

Five years na yan nakakulong si Mary Jane Veloso, tamad ang PNoy Administration sa pagtulong sa mga OCWs in legal distress. Kundi dahil sa pressure ng Indonesian President, hindi kikilos ang tamad na DFA at NBI ng PNoy Administration para mahuli ang totoong salarin. Mary Jane and we Filipinos in general are blessed with a good Indonesian President.

Magpasalamat sa Presidente? Well, I think The citizens have no obligation to thank the service of any government employee (including the President) whose salary they paid for. The citizens may thank an extra special service, and definitely the Veloso case is not an extra service by the President but rather a free-rider on the effort of the citizens to save Veloso. The only extra effort I see in this issue is a clear attempt by the President's mass media managers to cover the President's indolent ass. So, my question to the President is, how many Veloso-like cases you have in your inventory all over the world that is just sitting there for you to harvest when you need something to jerk up your popularity?

Malaysian ang recruiter nyan at ang naglagay ng drugs sa bag nya. Yang Malaysia-Aquino Mobsters na yan, hindi lang MILF, NPA, ASG, JI ang hawak nyan. Hawak din nila ang drug trade sa Pilipinas (Malaysian yang druglord sa loob ng bilanguan), massage-escort-prostitution and blackmail ring, multilevel marketing pyramiding scams (Google search nyo about Manuel Amalilio, 15billion pesos nakulimbat nun pinatakas ng PNoy administration), blackmarket trading of petroleum, Bangsamoro Peace Process scam (si Iqbal Malaysian yan), and human trafficking. Lahat yan ginagawa nila para panatilihing mahirap ang Pilipinas at madali nilang i-colonize at idagdag sa Sabah na kanila nang naagaw. Ingat lagi kasi mga Malaysian spies na yan, kahit alyas lang ang dalang pangalan, ay madali lang nakakakuha ng passport sa PH DFA dahil Aquino Aministration naka-upo eh. Mga Pilipinong MILF, NPA, ASG, JI na namamatay sa armed conflict ay nililibing na lang na walang death certificate record sa NSO kasi ginagamit ng mga Malaysians ang birth certificate para makakuha ng PH Passport yang mga Malaysian intruders na yan.

Incompetence and Psychological inconsistency Explain PNoy's Blaming on Napenas

URL Of Original Post:

[This article is published in the Headline section of Tribune. Read more at

Q: Sir John, PNoy recently blamed SAF General Napenas for "lying" to him in reporting information about the Mamasapano operation. What can you say about this? Is he excused? What was his mistake? What is your recommendation?

A: It is an admission that: (1) he [PNoy] has direct hands-on involvement as the highest authority in managing the decisions on the operation, (2) he [PNoy] lacks the necessary inquisitiveness and fell short of competency in validating information reported directly by his operations officer, (3) he [PNoy] does not take responsibility over failure of operations despite being a direct management participant of it. Admission of INCOMPETENCE will not excuse him [PNoy] of command responsibility.

His mistake was he gave a political decision over a tactical situation. He had in his hands the authority, power, resources and sufficient time to save the lives of the SAF who are in life-and-death situation, but he choose to sacrifice their lives for his personal ambition to get a nomination for Nobel Peace Prize that Teresita Deles lured him on.

The president has multiple functions and he has to make the best decision in any given circumstance. As president, he is the highest political decision-maker as well as the commander-in-chief of the armed forces. In this case at hand, he demonstrated incompetence and lack of responsibility as commander-in-chief of the armed forces and this puts ALL OF OUR LIVES at imminent risk. The Philippine Society, as a whole, should find a way to make him resign. This is a life-and-death situation. Buhay natin at tayo lahat ang at-risk dito habang patuloy yan na naka-upo as commander-in-chief of the armed forces.

Tingnan nyo rin yung aspect ng PSYCHOLOGICAL INCONSISTENCY ni PNoy. Given two similar situation, did the person responded consistently? In Zamboanga Siege of Sept 2013 (which the MNLF denies participation) PNoy was provoking the MNLF peace process by ordering three battalions of his armed forces to create havoc for almost one month which destroyed the homes of some 100,000 indigenous peoples minority Badjaos in Mariki and Rio Hondo, in response to an alleged MNLF shooting of one navy man. In this Mamasapano incident of January 2015, his 44 peacekeepers were slaughtered by the MILF yet he is withholding military response using the peace process as an excuse. So, given two situations, he behaved differently -- obviously meron siyang psychological inconsistency.

Nevertheless, whether he will resign or not, he has to be charged of TREASON, baka kasi sumusunod lang siya sa utos ng Malaysia. He may use insanity as a legal defense and we will be lenient. We will consider the facts of his psychological inconsistencies. We will gladly accept insanity as a plea bargain because it's long been established already with complete medical record. (John R. Petalcorin, MNLF Director for Communications, Admin of OneMNLF page in FB, 10 March 2015)

Politicians SALN must include guns owned

Gun ownership must be registered the same way as other assets such as real estate and car. So we must put in place a Registry of Deeds for guns. The gun owned must also be declared in the Statement of Assets and Liabilities (SAL) of government officials and politicians. Many politicians have private armies, and they own a lot of guns -- politicians should declare their guns in their SAL. (Excerpt from MNLF Gun Control Policy)

China's current indisputable sovereignty over South China Sea

There is no sovereign international body that adjudicates the assignment of sovereignty. Sovereignty means current and actual military power over a particular territory; and through time (centuries and period of civilizations) it passes from one nation to another depending on the tide of superiority of military might. Wu Shicun is stating a solid fact that at present, China has indisputable sovereignty over the waters within the nine dash line. PH, VM, and MY remain in fact the indisputable challengers.

This is my comment in Disqus on the article titled "China expert expects better ties with PH after 2016" (Inquirer, 29 Sept 2014)

On the trend of killing journalists

In the international scene, weeks ago, the ISIS in Syria executed journalist James Foley, and now Steven Scotloff, and another Briton will follow. Way back in 2009 Philippines, we've that 37 journalists were among those killed in the infamous Maguindanao massacre. This pattern of media killings will continue as long as one-sided propagandists pose cover as journalists. Nowadays, warring groups monitor the mainstream publications and keep a good record of the list of names of journalists who are playing role as propagandists of their opponents. Any side (government or rebel side) have their respective red-list of journalists. When the journalist becomes a captive, the captors will simply check the list. If the journalist is in the list -- autoexecute. It has also become a pattern that governments are assassinating journalists who provide balanced news, thinking that they work for the rebels. I believe that killing non-combatants is wrong, but the chances of getting killed as informant, propagandist, and one-sided journalist is part of occupation hazard. In order to reverse the pattern of media killings, the media industry should cleanse its ranks and retrain their members on the value of balanced reporting and how it affects their journalists' security in armed conflict zone.
