The Top 10 Blogs of the Society of Honor
Why Mayor Estrada Is Wrong on Hong Kong This article set a Society record of over 65,000 reads in one day. It makes clear that it is wrong for the Philippines to “move to the back of the bus” because China says to.
Mindanao . . . An Opinion This article was written by guest author Taga Bundok who lived Mindanao. He did not just “live in” Mindanao, he lived Mindanao. If you want to get a special feel for the truth of Mindanao, start here.
The Philippines: The Most Dangerous Land on the Planet Written just 2 weeks before Yolanda struck, this article was way too prophetic.
It’s all about Escudero: the future of the Philippines This recent commentary is still ripping along. It may have contributed to the recent “split” or emphasis on “independence” by Senators Poe and Escudero.
The real Mar Roxas: a kind, intelligent, earnest man We ought not be misled by the tabloid writers and talking heads, eh? We ought to know the real story. As with all articles, be sure to read the discussion thread.
Vice President Binay and the rage of the Middle Class The Vice President is embarked on a class-warfare campaign, pitting the poor against the middle class. His attack method has made a lot of enemies.
The Binays and the shame of the Philippines Where o’ where is the ethical foundation of the nation? Who will step up for good values?
A dislike of Grace Poe rolls across social media Another recent article that suggests Senator Poe may be listening to the wrong people and missing a key point: service to nation.
The odds are that Mar Roxas will be the next president In this article, we meet JoeAm’s bookie, Sal, a guy with swagger and a very calculating mind. It’s a good thing President Aquino did not cite Sal instead of JoeAm. Let’s just say his confidence needs no further boosting.
Another good way to prowl the blog is to go to the home page and use the “Search” box. Type in a person or subject and see what pops up. JoeAm wrote a lot about Mamasapano, swimming against popular opinion all the way. He has written about Kris Aquino and Korina Sanchez and possibly even Jessica Sanchez (frankly, I forgot), but he has not yet established an “Entertainment Section”. Plug in a senator’s name, and he or she will likely have a few, or a lot, of words attached. Try China or Defense. Or mining. Or whatever.
Remember that a blog is the starting point. It is SUPPOSED to be a tad provocative, so don’t wear your feelings on your shirt sleeve. Reflect first, argue later. Read the discussion threads where the balance and moderation and smart thinking is done.
Enjoy the writings.
