      Mayor, dads lead in drug testing    

The city mayor of Dumaguete is leading all officials elected and appointed, to undergo voluntary and random drug tests if only to entice the rank and file to do likewise.

Why is the Marcos burial creating so much controversy?

What can a dead and his body do to solve the problems of the nation? Will burying or not burying the Marcos body solve or even, make any difference at all, as to the cases of the torture victims, ill gotten wealth, summary killings, salvagings and corruption ? No it will not. Therefore, burying this human carcass beautifully crafted in wax, will not make or unmake the state of things in this part of the world.

Worse, if the protestors were given their way, it will create a bad precedence. If Marcos body is not buried at the LMB then how much more those with similar or worse records, in the future, when their time will come?

So, Duterte will never allow protestors of the Marcos burial to have their way because future leaders’ own burials when the time comes, will again be put in jeopardy, including the burials of future controversial leaders.



Persevere in hardships, and righeous discipline then peace will come. (Heb 12:4)
