 Ang pagsasagawa ng ganitong aktibidad ay pagpapalawak sa kaalaman ng mga kabataan tungkol sa pamamahayag. Sabi nga nila, simulan ang pagpapanday ng karunungan habang bata pa sila at mahasa ng husto ang kanilang talento sa pamamahayag, hindi lang sa pagsusulat kundi pati sa radyo, telebisyon at “social media”. Dahil dito tiyak na maraming kabataan na mahilig sa pamamahayag ang dadalo dito. (more…)

ORTIGOZA: My interview with Senator Ejercito


 The gall of Speaker Pantaleon “Panty” Alvarez threatening local government units (LGUs) officials with not receiving  their regular financial aid from the national  government if they will not support the Constitutional revision he spearheaded .

HesusMariaHusef, was that sheer hubris and blackmail?! 

Internal Revenue Allotment, called by LGU officials as IRA, is mandated by law as stated in the Local Government Code of 1991.

IRA, the financial life blood of the towns, cities, and provinces, is their share of the taxes collected by the national government.

The gall of Speaker Panty Alvarez threatening the 22 senators that in case they did not join the 294 congressmen, the Lower “Going Gutter Low” House will railroad the revision of the charter with plebiscite this May.

 May this year? Holy Casserole and Guacamole, that is roughly four months from now! Public hearings among the 103 million Flips, er, Filipinos would be improbable as time and space dictate.

So how can we get the pulses and inputs of the people in changing the law, not just an ordinary law son of a gun, but the freaking Fundamental Law of our Land?

Where are the sense and the sanity on this Speaker Panty?!


Recently, Lingayen Mayor Josefina” Iday” Castaneda, after I interviewed her on Contract of Usufruct with the DepEd, told me not to leave her office  as she and her officials were waiting for reelective Senator Jayvee Ejercito , actor Raymart Santiago, and company who rode straight from Imperial Manila on their multi-million pesos giant bikes’ Italian made Ducatis and BMWs.
