Mga nahulog sa patibong ni Pres. Rody

MARAMI nang nahulog sa patibong ni Pangulong Rody. Magmula pa sa unang araw niya sa Palasyo, hindi na mabilang ang mga taga-oposisyon at taga-media na kanyang nalambat. Palibhasa’y nakatingin sila palagi sa negatibo ni Digong, hindi na tuloy nila nakikita…

Warning sa mga alkalde

LALONG tumaas ang paghanga ng maraming alkalde sa buong bansa kay Pangulong Rody. Nang sabihin niya sa kanyang speech na ipapatawag niya ang lahat ng alkalde at ikukulong niya sa isang kuwarto para komprontahin sa problema ng illegal drugs, totoong…

Baklas kawayang-bakod sa lawa

Tatanggalin na raw o babaklasin, idedemolis na ang mga kawayang bakod o mga fishpen sa lawa ng Laguna. Sana’y hindi ito ningas-kogon lang sa salita o “papogi lang.” Kung mangyayari ang pagbaklas ng mga kawayang bakod sa lawa, makahihinga ang…
