Checking my page stats, I realized that there are posts that receive a surge in readers and provoke comments but there are some that hardly received any but gets quoted and even copied entirely in other blogs. However, readers of those posts stop coming after the issue had died down.

There is one post however that looks so simple and yet receives readers all the time. In fact, out of the last 500 visitors to this blog, more than 100 came to an old post about a corrupt cop.

Just to balance things, this blog is no cop hater. In fact, I have high respects for the men and women in uniform. A lot of my friends are economically depressed cops and soldiers who are without without a stain of corruption in their sleeves. Therefore, here is a short post in honor of the:

cop, auxiliary cop and volunteer who patiently directs traffic for expensive cars that he cannot afford,

the bomb technician who risks his life for those who hates people like him,

the lowly beat cop who walks the streets while in danger of sniper fire from the druggies of Quiapo, Taguig and Tondo,
the hostage negotiator who risks his life so that others may live

the special forces personnel who trains day and night to save the world from messianic personalities like David Koresh, Shoko Asahara and Antonio Trillanes.

the lowly paid womens desk personnel who braves psychological trauma by listening to tales of domestic violence over and over again,

the much maligned Mamang Pulis and all the men and women of the police forces all over the world.

Thank you!
It's all that this ungrateful world can possibly give you.


Just now, I am reminded of stories that Davaoeneos narrated during the mid 80’s. With Davao being referred to as Nicaragdao because of widespread insurgency and criminality, the mayor embarked on a serious campaign to cleanse the city. Unfortunately, such included the disciplining of young people with potential to become trouble makers. At that time when male body piercings were exclusively criminal traits, parents discouraged their male off springs from wearing even clip on earrings. Had I been a parent in that area, at that time, I would have done the same. Those were not normal days and people had to be extra careful…

I can't believe that this guy had the gall to remove beautiful billboards like that of Cindy Kurleto and replace it with his own. Now, it's turning out that he has been refusing to answer queries about his department's advertising and other expenses.

Senor Bayani, we find logic in your office's position that billboards are possible "fatal distractions" in our highways.

But why did you have to take it all down only to replace it with your own?

Who do you think you are? Aga Muhlach? Give us a break!

As a tenor pretender, you should start singing.... kamuka ko si Panchitoooo! nung siya ay bata pa!!!!

We'd rather meet accidents staring at Cindy Kurleto than die of heart attacks after seeing your face in the dark highway.

Grown ups, we may be. But still, we are afraid of ghosts!

NOTE: The complete story can be found in the article before this post.

With the operating room being so crowded and more than four cameras observed in the Youtube video, ONLY 4 individuals were identified and deemed as (ONLY) administratively liable by the hospital. NO SUSPENSION is being recommended because the hospital is short of manpower.

Browsing through Google, I chanced upon a February article in a Cebu daily suggesting that we search Google using the search terms "cebu black suede". I did just that and found the video. Since the hospital seems to be having a hard time identifying the suspects, we are going by posting screenshots that will probably make the public identify who those animals are.

Here it goes:

If you are able to identify these people, please inform the Department of Health or the police.

Shamefully World Class

While we take pride in our medical professionals, even declaring their supposed topnotch quality, as proven by their high demand overseas, a recent event made me reflect upon the merits of that claim.

Now, I wonder, Are we being sought after because we are good, or is it because there’s nobody else out there? Are we dominating the scene simply because there’s a lot of us in the field? Is this like boxing, which is dominated by Mexicans simply because there’s too many of them?

It is a fact, that despite the high salaries being offered to medical professionals in the US and other western countries, not many locals are taking up those courses in college. Being short in domestic supply, they are forced to import. Hence, the Pinoy nurses, PT’s, docs, technicians, etc.

What created the doubt is the recent incident in Cebu that brought back a lot of other incidents that piled up through the years.

Despite our claims that our medical professionals are being hailed elsewhere, aren’t we all familiar of horror stories involving most of our local hospitals? Aren’t we all familiar with stories involving neglect, abuse, and incompetence? Check out the files of XXX, Imbestigador, Bitag, radio stations and everywhere else and you’ll find it well documented there. I can go to specifics of a lot of cases but let us talk about the latest scandal- the one involving a video showcasing, blatant, arrogance, bad leadership, malice, incompetence and many other things in one of our hospitals.

There is this dirty fag who contracted a man for cheap sex (P100). He took him home and played a portion in a play called Sodom and Gemorra . In his drunken stupor, he teased Deuce for being so small below. Badly insulted, the man with small privates rammed a can of Avon black Suede Body Spray way past his well stretched sphincter. After a few days, the man who likes P100 sex paid higher for the immediate consequence – a rectal operation to remove the can.
Little did he know that he has yet to pay a higher fee in terms of a free starring role in a well documented indie film. The operating room which normally requires a maximum of eight people during surgical procedures was jam-packed with people reminiscent of a UP enrollment scene in the 90’s. A lot of people were taking shots with their cellphone cams in addition to the hospital’s own production crew. Making the lover of cheap sex pay more, a video of the entire procedure was posted on youtube. The long clip also showed a number of giggling and cheering hospital personnel together punctuated with lewd remarks, shouts and boisterous laughter.

With the sleazy lover of cheap sex becoming a reverse image of John Wayne Bobbit, the hospital conducted a probe that until now is yet to produce a result. Mga punyeta kayo!!!! Is it taking that long to white wash the investigation?

Who are those guys inside the room? Maybe, it's time that they are given a dose of blogger justice!

Writing a serious post

Please come back after an hour.


I have Spartan tastes, hehehe!

Having worked so hard the past few years, I am thinking of a gift that I should buy for myself. The plan is to choose one, work hard to be able to afford it, and then buy! The item of choice for next Christmas is a Patek Nautilus. It is said to be the best watch in the world and will probably make me feel like Vladimir Putin who wears a more expensive model. Hehehe!

My beautiful and nice smelling friends.

They will be visiting this blog, hence this post. Ladies, this is about you!

I had coffee with rich friends who never needs to work even for a day in their entire lives. These perpetually sexy beings devote their waking hours to staying beautiful and being on a diet.

Yesterday, the conversation revolved around the latest prescription weight loss pills. Despite the topic which I deem to be worthless in my case, I was happy that at least, they are into prescribed medication nowadays. At the height of the popularity of Bangkok pills and other dangerous things to hit town, these people, together with their moms, were heavily into it. I swear, they heard more than a mouthful from me. From that time on, they started calling me Daddy JC for straightening them like naughty kids.

Being with them can be irritating at times so I try to make myself scarce. But whenever I need to unwind, party or simply smell fragrance, all I need to do is visit them. They're always home with their parents during daytime and attending parties at night. By the way, I also see them whenever I need free meals! Here's to you, my babies. Stay beautiful. I love you all!


I have been negligent in daily updating this blog and that might continue for a few more weeks. I am very busy with current responsibilities and my lighting fixtures in my computer room, remains unfixed. I just don’t entrust electronic items with the househelps. They might be duped into buying substandard lighting that will burn the house when I am not there or get electrocuted while replacing it. Well, I hope this weekend will spare me some time so I can buy those items and be able to blog from home.

Blog comments

Blog comments that simply says, click here or visit here and similar variants are very dangerous, if I may warn blog readers. Clicking on those links sometimes lead you to pages that automatically initiates downloads. Those downloads are viruses that slows your PC and disables its ability to finish a scan and cleanup.

Install anti virus and anti spyware programs and if possible have them automatically scan anything that tries to sneak into your system. At this point, Kapersky is well known for that. I also heard that Faronics Deep Freeze is also very good. It allows downloads but deletes all of it when you reboot your PC.

Search for reviews before buying one. There are also free versions of good programs like Kapersky. I recommend that you try it out before choosing the program that suits you best.

Vicious Women

The news today is filled with several instances of sliced sausages. It seems that a lot of women are emulating Madame Lorena Bobbit by getting back at their good for nothing spouses with the use of a knife. These ladies should be reading the 7th Heaven book where there is a so called The Women's Murder Club. With their rising numbers globally, they probably should formalize the formation of this organization and get all the members some professional counseling. Getting back at bad people may be criminal but fathomable by today’s societal standards. But castration? Oh dear… :-D

"During World War II, the tachistoscope, an instrument which projects pictures for an extremely brief period, was used to train soldiers to recognize enemy airplanes. Today the tachistoscope is used to increase reading speed or to test sight.

In 1957, market researcher James Vicary claimed that quickly flashing messages on a movie screen, in Fort Lee, New Jersey, had influenced people to purchase more food and drinks. Vicary coined the term subliminal advertising and formed the Subliminal Projection Company based on a six-week test. Vicary claimed that during the presentation of the movie Picnic he used a tachistoscope to project the words "Drink Coca-Cola" and "Hungry? Eat popcorn" for 1/3000 of a second at five-second intervals. Vicary asserted that during the test, sales of popcorn and Coke in that New Jersey theater increased 57.8 percent and 18.1 percent respectively."
Today's feature is more than subliminal. I call it blatant. Examine the MMDA posters all over Metro Manila and notice that Bayani Fernando's photo is larger than all the texts combined. Examining the texts, one will unfailingly notice "BF", which means "Bayani Fernando", again occupying more space.

Those posters reek of electioneering. I hope the guy losses all his money, friends and more importantly-- the elections!

If I remember it correctly, commercial banners and billboards were removed along the highways for reasons that include it being a dangerous "distraction". I wonder who gave MMDA the franchise to install BF's posters and more importantly, what reasons will be used to justify spending government money for those 10 feet tarpaulins that are all over the main thoroughfares.

Watching the news and listening to the radio, I can’t help but feel bad that the opinions of the people of this country are being shaped by the loudest and angriest voices, but not necessarily the most sensible people in this part of the world. In my not so humble opinion, TV and radio commentators should only be allowed to tackle issues that they are competent of handling. Otherwise, they are simply leading this country into oblivion.


I cannot believe that leaders of some groups are spending so much time asking the government to admit that there is a crisis and angrily demand for subsidies even after such was already given. I also find it hard to believe that radio commentators and TV personalities give this people so much air time.

And this administration, wanting to score brownie points, announced a whopping P5 billion in rice subsidies. Despite that, the foul mouthed leaders of farmer groups, never to be satisfied with any move from any administration, angrily demands for more. Actually, what I heard from a radio interview made no mention of the government declared subsidy. They simply demanded (angrily) for subsidies, subsidies and more subsidies as the cure. Subsidy in the form of cheap fertilizers, cheaper seeds, etc? That’s very stupid, if one will analyze the issue.


At this point, all we have is a speculation of a crisis. As for the shortage, we’ve known that for a long time. Isn’t that why the government imports rice? But so far, rice can be found and we are yet to hear of empty shelves anywhere in this country. This freaking shortage is nothing but speculation until the stores start closing. When I last checked, all the retailers have goods to sell.

Declaring that there is a crisis, even when the supply is still sufficient simply leads to panic. Didn’t we just experience a hike in rice prices after the activists and the opposition declared that there is a freaking crisis? That's what we have now, a price increase. As for the stocks, it remains full.

And what is farmers' main basis for their LOUD DEMANDS for subsidies? They declare that there are a lot of them (rice farmers). In fact, they claim that they are the majority in this economy. Of course, that is not true. In fact, that is a blatant lie.


But before we continue, let me ask, where will the government get the money to subsidize them come from? Tsk tsk.. Agriculture contributes only 14% in this country’s GDP with rice comprising a small portion of that. If that’s the case, the government will draw the subsidy from the rest of the agriclurtural sector, the Services sector (which contributes 55%) and the industrial sector (31%). Is that fair to all concerned?

It is a fact that prices increase every year. Our population also increases annually. Therefore, our demand for rice will keep increasing. Does that mean that the government should keep on allotting more and more money as rice subsidy?

Do we subsidize them til the end of our days? Aren't this farmer leaders ashamed to demand for dole outs?

My parents own rice farms making us a farming family, but damn us all! We’d rather force ourselves and everybody else to eat camote and bread than live on other peoples dole outs!


My dear opinion makers, never forget what will happen that as soon as the government stops subsidizing the farmers. They will die.

Stop the foolish subsidies and teach them how to increase their efficiency. Teach them the ways of high breed farming and other good farming practices. In addition, irrigate their lands and build them farm to market roads. It will further increase their yield and amplify their capability to bring their produce directly to the end users. That will not only increase the income of the farmers and decrease the rice prices; it will also annihilate the greedy traders in between.

These farmer leaders do not want to even think of helping their people. They are quick to reject the use of high breed rice simply because it will require them to buy seedlings every planting season. Never mind that it will greatly increase the net profits of the farmers. For them, the Holy Grail lies in government subsidies, subsidies, increased subsidies and never ending subsidies! Those leeches!

Give the farmers subsidy and let the rest of the country suffer. By the way, isn’t it that the rice farmers also eat rice?

With rice farmers comprising a mere 25% of the labor force and contributing only 14% of the GDP, what do they think will happen?

Will it be a good policy to have a happy 25% and a starving 75% of the population? Wait a minute, will subsidies make them happy? I seriously doubt it. These leaders do nothing but teach their people to complain.


If the rice farmers really want to improve their welfare, they should develop their production methods. For one, it has been proven that high breed rice increases their net income. They should go all out for it. Never mind the traditional variety for it will not disappear. Its seedlings will always be preserved and used by specialty farms. There will always be a demand for it. Let the rich plant and pay for it.

As for the government, if it really wants to help its people, it should use the P5 billion in rice subsidies in building irrigations and roads. Farm-to-market roads in the lowlands cost less than a million pesos per kilometer; in the uplands, it is between P1.5 million to P2 million (per Km). The P5 billion will build 5,000 kilometers of roads in the lowlands and 3,000~4,100 Km in the uplands. Now, that will surely bring down the cost, not just of rice but all other things coming from the provinces.

The government should also allow the free for all rice importation and the reduction of its tariff to 3%. That will lead to lower prices and sufficient stocks. It will also force the hoarders out of business and everybody will be happy.


The solution is not in subsidies. A subsidy is nothing but a dole out. Once it stops, the farmers will die. There is a saying,
“Give a man fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you give him food for life”.


In these times when the irrational and the bully seems to rule the day, I can't help but wonder what it's like to be the rainmaker of this country. In the areas that I can reach, I make things happen. But I can only do so much. Besides, there are people who simply refuse to help themselves and instead, focus their energy into blaming others for their misery.

I wonder what it's like to be the rainmaker
I wonder what it's like to know that I make the rain
I'd store it in boxes with little yellow tags on everyone
And you can come see them when I'm...done,
When I'm done

I wonder what it's like to be a super hero
I wonder where I'd go if I could fly arounddowntown
From some other planet,
I get this funky high on yellow sun
Boy I bet my friends will all be...stunned,
They're stunned


Straight up, what did you hope
To learn about here
If I were someone else,
would this all fall apart
Strange, where were you, when we started this gig,
I wish the real world, would just stop hassling me

I wonder what it's like to be the head honcho
I wonder what I'd do if they all did just what I said
I'd shout out an order,
I think we're out of this man get me some
Boy don't make me wanna change my...tone,
My tone

(Repeat Chorus)

Please don't change,
Please don't break the only thing that seems to work at all is you
Please don't change,
At all from me to you, and you to me

(Repeat Chorus)

Handling the rice situation

Vito Corleone’s men loves to use the term “Going to the mattresses” whenever they declare war on their enemies. With the way the government is handling the dire rice situation, they are declaring war by using the foam mattress. These farmers groups are not really out there to fight for the farmers but in reality, topple the government, whoever is in there. Gloria or Erap, it doesn’t matter. Shesh!

Insurance, TPL, stencil, colorum, etc.

The current fiasco between the MMDA and the LTFRB over the provincial buses being mistakenly apprehended as “Colorum” and “Out of lane”” shows poor coordination between the two and again, for the nth time, the arrogance of Bayani Fernando. I used to like you Bayani. But now, you have a monster out of yourself. On the side of the LTO/LTFRB, may I also call your attention to the companies that you accredit to provide Third Party Liability (TPL) insurance policies. I have noticed during renewal periods that your people seem to be so intent in looking for car owners TPL policies and quick to pinpoint car insurance agents hanging around the complex. Wake up, Dudes! This is the information age. You will be blogged to oblivion.
