EDITORIAL: Thoughts of Conrad Estrella III

Many political observers are putting color in the presence of Conrado M. Estrella III in the first district, the fourth district and the third district.

But his presence has nothing to do with the fight for governor in 2013 but with his being Abono Party-list provincial chairman for Pangasinan.

“Napag-utusan lang po ako nila Abono Congressman Eskimo at Congressman Pacoy na pamunuan ang health mission dito sa San Carlos City at gift giving sa mga binaha ng habagat sa Calasiao,” said Conrado Estrella III. “Ordinary citizen lang ako ngayon.”

BOK NANI BRAGANZA, dati siyang si Ka Liway or Kumander Liway ng Visayas Command ng armadong pakikibaka, nahuli…nakulong…lumutang sa mainstream work for the oppressed and exploited at ngayon siya na si Ma. Cecilia Flores-Oebanda na head ng Visayan Forum Foundation Inc.

Ngayon nahaharap siya sa isang bintang na hindi niya daw maacount ang halagang P210 million mula sa USAID.

Maganda at recognized ang trabaho at accomplishments ng Visayan Forum Foundation pero kailangan nating malaman ang katotohanan sa mga paratang laban kay Kumander Liway.

Kumusta na po kayo, BM Niño Arboleda, ang BM ninyo sa 5th district!

KUMANDER SONNY. Speaking of kumander, si PD Sonny Versoza naman ang Kumander Sonny ng buong Pangasinan Provincial Police Command. (more…)

Ramos, a West Pointer, recently in Dagupan City to discuss the growing belligerence of Mainland China in the West Philippines Sea and the state of the Philippine’s armed forces vis-à-vis the incessant Chinese’s intrusions in the territorial waters of the Philippines, Excerpts:

FIDEL V. RAMOS (FVR): You know I hope you read my Sunday columns in the Bulletin. I’ve been writing about , No. 1: “Who is Scared of Scarborough? Or Panatag Shoal which is 124 miles only from Masinloc, Zambales, 550 Miles away from Hainan, Islands – the southernmost place of China, thereby we have some advantage already. No. 2: If we sacrifice our trade using the 200 miles EEZ or Exclusive Economic Zone provided for long by the UN (United Nations) Convention of the Laws of the Sea, UNCLOS tagilid diyan si China (that will be China’s dilemma).
