Mr. Aquino, investigate yourself first


Mr. President, investigate yourself first before investigating the Local Chief Executives (LCEs). Because, if the LCEs  underestimated typhoon Yolanda-it was in the same manner that the administration underestimated the anger of the One who created the typhoon.

The stairway could be dangerous if not first investigated by one who passes through.

While they were inadvertent in their respective duties, you yourself, including your administration, had politically and intentionally also instigated the “anger”.

This is in response to the political move of President Benigno Aquino to investigate LCEs due to heavy damage and death brought by Typhoon Yolanda, intently and politically, laying blame on the alleged but equally inadvertent local government units in destroyed provinces and municipalities.

In so far as this specific issue is concerned, if the President does not like incompetents in the government, then, he should be the first one to go. Because the calamities being suffered by Filipinos are not ordinary scenarios.

Microwave Pulse? Probably


Microwave pulse was theorized as the cause of typhoon Yolanda or Haiyan in the Philippines; that it was man made; that a personality from US is being suggested to be behind it and the storm was subjected to control.

There is microwave pulse in SM Cebu, Philippines.

The “scientific” proof was presented that at the time of its development, microwave pulse was detected, as what have been observed in other  storms prior to Yolanda.

Let us try discussing the merits of the above viral issue.

  • First issue-on the evidence. As a lawyer, I cannot agree to the “scientific” proof presented by the presentor due to his utter lack of personal knowledge.Because he was not present during the storm, either above or below or inside the storm, at the time it was developing, at the time of its raging and at the time it exited from the Philippines. Besides, he was not able to ask the microwave, what was he doing in the storm. In short, the presentor is not a credible witness.  So, forget the “scientific” proof. It would not stand before (more…)

10,000 “feared” dead


“As many as 10,000 people are believed to have died in Tacloban City alone when one of the worst storms on record sent giant sea waves inland, washing away homes, schools and airport buildings, officials said yesterday”-The Philippine Star reported November 11, 2013.

To wait for order is easy but for number of deaths in calamities is difficult and dependent on the one who reports.

The next day, expectedly, there will be so many other reports on the same topic-Yolanda. Other would say that 10,000 is not enough, that’s it maybe doubled and so on and so forth.

In the same newspaper, Pope Francis was quoted to have tweet prayers. The newspaper says:”As reports about the monster typhoon begun coming out last Saturday, Pope Francis took to his twitter account to urge the people to pray for all the typhoon victims”.

With all due respect, this is very useless prayer from a useless twitter account. First, because it is done thru tweets and not addressed to the Father in Heaven. Secondly, it is not seeking for forgiveness. And granting that it seeks forgiveness, the one seeking forgiveness does not forgive others.

But what is the biggest sin that requires (more…)

Thank you, Yolanda


After the storm, there is clear sky.

Thank you “Yolanda” for the “tenderness” in your fury,

I asked before that you please be tender to those who are chosen,

to dissipate and to return when time comes another day, 

And, had I heard “sorry” and “forgive me”?

You got the name from a south China sea island, Hainan, internationally?

But when you reach Philippine area,  you will be  called ‘Yolanda’,

To write down another disaster and environmental calamity.
