Push agenda, not personalities

By

The presidential race, still more than two years away, is off to an early start. Aspirants are making their declarations, alliances are a-forming, the positioning of various personalities is getting tested.

Emotional

Should the Senate and the House of Representatives investigate the alleged P10-billion pork barrel scam? The new Senate majority leader, Alan Peter Cayetano, suggests that the public look elsewhere. Because the allegations implicate at least five senators and 23 congressmen, any legislative inquiry would turn emotional, Cayetano said.

DOH: Beware of those herbal medicines

By

The defect in the proclamation of the winning senatorial candidates has been corrected, according to election lawyer Romulo Macalintal, who criticized the proclamation soon after the first six senators were proclaimed. Macalintal was one of the three guests at the Kapihan sa Manila at the Diamond Hotel last Monday. The two others were Dr. Honorata L. Catibog, director of the Department of Health’s National Center for Disease Prevention and Control, and Dr. Anthony P. Calibo, also of the same center and a specialist in the care of the newborn.

Attacks on Legarda rock LP coalition

By

Cracks have appeared on the facade of solidarity of the administration’s Team PNoy senatorial lineup at a critical juncture in the May 13 elections, as tensions between leading candidates of the Liberal Party (LP)-led coalition erupted into mudslinging within its ranks, threatening to break up the alliance.

Bam Aquino was a collaborator of Gloria Arroyo

By

Today is the beginning of Holy Week, so we should all admit our sins and repent. Nowhere are they more needed than in the case of politicians seeking election this May. No doubt they all pray to God to make them win. Hence, they should be humble and honest and admit that they have sinned, and ask God for forgiveness and promise not to sin again. The senatorial candidate who needs to do this the most is Bam (Bum?) Aquino.

Once more with feeling: Public duty is a public trust

The internecine feud between Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and Senators Alan Peter Cayetano, Pia Cayetano, Miriam Defensor-Santiago and Antonio Trillanes has brought upon all of them a common scourge: a headache—a kind of headache that respects no medicine, making all the paracetamol tablets in the world pieces of junk. It is the type of headache that rankles the nerves and makes the diastolic reading soar like a rocket.

An oversight?

The cash gifts controversy enveloping the Senate has forced it to take a long hard look at its practices. The recent harsh exchange of words on the Senate floor between Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and Senate Minority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano may have dragged the chamber’s reputation through the gutter, but if the flurry of acts and statements from various senators in the last several days is any guide, we may yet look forward to not only a cleaned-up Senate, but a clean slate.

A national drama

By

When news got out about the “Christmas gift” that Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile bestowed on senators, though four of his colleagues received a lot less than the others, little did the public know the news would soon develop into a  “telenovela.” And what drama has been generated by the news!   Already, we have [...]

Fariñas, Cayetano saluted

Just like Asuncion David Maramba, I applaud Rep. Rodolfo Fariñas for saying in simple terms what the majority of us non-lawyers “connote” in our hearts (“Fariñas’ plain talk,” Inquirer, 6/4/12).
