‘Poor’ excuse

In the news recently was the occupation of some families from Metro Manila and parts of Bulacan province, of some 4,000 houses from five government housing projects in Pandi town and the City of San Jose del Monte.

The era of a ‘leaderless world’

The downfall of the roman empire was due to overextending its territory beyond its ability to manage. It was so big it collapsed under its own weight. Today’s America is in such situation.
