One of the 48 Laws of Power entitled Use Selective Honesty and Generosity to Disarm your Victim states ‘One sincere and honest move will cover over dozens of dishonest ones. Open-hearted gestures of honesty and generosity bring down the guard of even the most suspicious people. Once your selective honesty opens a hole in their armor, you can deceive and manipulate them at will. A timely gift – a Trojan horse – will serve the same purpose.’
There are Pangasinan politicians who practice selective honesty and generosity to deceive and manipulate the people.

The political kettle in Mangaldan, Pangasinan heats up this early.
Since incumbent Mayor Herminio Romero is bowing out (he is on his last term) next year, those being rumored to run there are former national police chief and land transportation office’s (LTO) boss Art Lomibao, incumbent Vice Mayor Berex Abalos, and former mayoralty candidate Bona de Vera.

DAGUPAN CITY – Mangatarem’s rainforest, Pangasinan province’s largest remaining rainforest, is threatened by illegal logging, with new roads into the deep areas constructed for easier hauling of logs, environment officials said.
