  2. Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Locsin Jr. hinted that Rappler CEO Maria Ressa could be guilty of “aiding and abetting” illegal drugs even if her criticism against President Rodrigo Duterte’s drug war was sincere. “In Marxist legal theory, one who, out of sincerest conviction, stands in the way of or discredits reforms (such as the total extermination of the drug trade) is objectively guilty of aiding and abetting the said criminal activity,” said Locsin in tweet. He was quoting from “Humanism and Terror: An Essay on the Communist Problem” by Merleau Ponty published in 1947. Locsin was responding to a tweet by @MsMarisseGarcia who said: “As a Filipino, I hold Maria Ressa @mariaressa accountable for destroying the image of my country. https://politics.com.ph/marxist-theory-teddy-locsin-hints-rapplers-ressa-could-be-guilty-of-abetting-drug-lords/

    Support Divorce Law - Philippines

    Yes to divorce! People are waiting for this. We believed the sacrament of marriage but if the marriage is abusive and unhappy there will be no point, we wanted to be alive for our children not to be someones punching bag at the end of the day. Approve divorce now.

  10. President Rodrigo Duterte hates drug addicts so much he wishes hospitals will stop accepting them in emergency rooms and just leave them to bleed to death. “Iyong mga adik dito ba patay na lahat? Kasi po ang utos ko kay (Health) Secretary (Francisco) Duque na ‘pag ang nagsaksakan, nagbarilan puro adik, huwag nang tanggapin. Itapon ko na lang diyan sa daan kung saan,” said Duterte in his speech during the opening of the new San Lazaro Hospital in Malabon City. Duterte has launched a bloody drug which has targeted not only drug lords and drug pushers but also the drug addicts because of the gruesome crimes they commit. https://politics.com.ph/itapon-na-lang-kung-saan-duterte-wishes-hospitals-will-reject-drug-addicts/

  14. Source: POLITIKO He was asked point blank by Enriquez if has the money to bankroll a senatorial campaign. Enriquez said the political reality was that human rights lawyers like Diokno do not get rich from their work and candidates need a lot of money to stand a chance of winning. But Diokno said people should shake off this belief that “money rules” in politics. “You cannot allow that to happen, dapat hindi natin tatanggapin ;yan. Dahil ang may ari ng mga puwesto na yan ay hindi naman sila ang may-ari ng mga puwesto na iyan ang taongbayan. Kaya nga tayo nagkakaroon ng halalan at kaya mahalaga ang boto dahil tayo ang nagluloklok kung sino ang uupo diyan. I cannot accept na sabihin lang natin ay dahil wala kang pera hindi ka mananalo,” said Diokno.
  15. Source: POLITIKO 1-Ang Edukasyon Partylist Rep. Salvador Belaro urged the bicameral conference committee for the proposed 2019 General Appropriations Act (GAA) to keep intact pay hike for teachers and other government personnel. Belaro appealed to the members of the House contingent in the Bicam the ensure funding for the scheduled fourth tranche of the salary standardization increases for 30,000 faculty in the state universities and colleges (SUCs) down to about 700,000 teachers in public school basic education, and for other government employees. The party-list solon is hopeful that the delay in the pay hikes because of the briefly re-enacted budget will be limited to this month of January. Belaro noted the Senate has approved the funding this year’s component of National Budget Circular 61 under their version of the 2019 GAA. “For the good of the national economy, it is my hope that the 2019 budget can indeed take effect in February so that any slowdown in government spending this month can be offset and economic targets for 2019 can be achieved,” said Belaro.

Our software uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a personalized experience when you browse this site. By reading and/or participating on this website, you have agreed to these terms. 1. Freedom of Speech – Our constitution promotes press freedom as a right of every Filipino Article III Section 4 of the 1987 Philippine Constitution states that “no law shall be passed abridging the freedom of speech, of expression, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances.” At DISCUSS.Politics we see freedom of speech as the right to communicate ideas. With this right comes the responsibility to choose your words carefully and respect the rights of others. Common sense dictates the difference between one expressing themselves and one who is disruptive. If you are focused on contributing to the community, you will not have to be concerned with being a disruption. Disruptive behavior, such as personal attacks, can lead to temporary or permanent revocation of posting privileges. 1a. Starting a Thread - When starting a thread it is best to express your own thoughts in your own words. Threads w/o original content may be summarily closed. 2. Moderators - Moderators are the key to the success of any board. They are expected to live up to a higher standard and as such we expect you to treat them with a higher standard. The moderating team is under no obligation to read every post. Occasionally, inappropriate posts will slip by unnoticed by the mods. If you see one of these posts, please report it immediately by using the "report post" button under the offender's avatar. 3. Prohibited actions and behavior: 3.a Spamming 3.b Baiting / Flaming / Trolling 3.c Multiple posts of the same subject 3.d Explicitly posting profane or censored words or bypassing the Word Censors 3.e Insubordination or publicly disrespecting the Moderators 3.f Offensive avatars 3.g Uploading attachments that are illegal to own or trade. 3.h Having multiple or proxy accounts 3.i Use of languages other than English, Filipino and Philippine dialects. 3.j Harassment of members in this forum or outside.

The BREAKING NEWS “R.I.P.” tag should be treated with the same general respect and etiquette one would show at a funeral. It is a thread for members to express their grief or condolences and to speak about the dead or the family of the dead in a respectful way, free of mud-slinging. -- The same story that is used in a R.I.P thread may be used to create a standard thread about the matter as well (and vice-versa). Conversation in this thread will run per the normal rules of DISCUSS.Politics. Personal attacks about individuals speaking ill of the dead, as per the standard rules, will not be allowed. As long as the discussion remains within the rules and on topic it is fair game. 4. Copyrighted Material - All material posted from copyrighted material MUST contain a link to the original work. If a source is not available online, is not free to the public, or requires registration to be accessed, then a comprehensive citation will suffice. Keep in mind that your position may be weakened if the original source is not easily accessible. 5. Fair-Use - A limitation of two (2) medium-sized paragraphs per thread is allowed for the quoting and display of any external "same-source" material. Same-source material is considered to be material borrowed from the same author, the same internet article, the same web page, the same web site, or the same publication. Please do not exceed this limitation, nor attempt to bypass this limitation via consecutive/subsequent/plagiarized thread postings. Proper format is to Copy & Paste a maximum of two medium-sized paragraphs of same-source material and offer a link to the material source page for further reading. Moderator discretion shall prevail here. 6. Advertisements - If you wish to advertise on DISCUSS.Politics - please contact us. Advertisements in posts will be considered spam and deleted. 7. Privacy - Posting personal email addresses, full names, places of employment, and phone numbers (etc.) for any purpose will not be tolerated.

If this is done, the post will be deleted and further consequences may occur. 8. Disciplinary Action - Users that break any rules may be issued a Warning, either in the thread where the offense took place in or via a Private Message (PM) - sometimes both. Repeated violations of the rules can result in permanent or temporary revocation of posting privileges. Temporary suspension of posting privileges might range in duration from 24 hours to 2 weeks or more. If the conduct is severely detrimental to the board, the account will be banned and posting privileges revoked permanently. This is at the sole discretion of the Moderator. You may submit an appeal using the "contact us" link at the bottom of every page. Not all disciplinary actions will be public.
