Why blame China or the USA for the sins of North Korea's supreme leader?

This New York Times article has the surprising title "China in rebuke, suggests U.S. worsened ties with North Korea". In this article China claims that it is the USA, not China who is responsible for nuclear embrace of North Korea. Pardon me, but the recent "hydrogen bomb" explosion test of North Korea, simply shows clearly that North Korea is ruled by an insecure, comical and mentally deranged leader in Kim Jung-on, the son of the founder Kin Jong-il. It is this tyranical head of state who should be blamed for increasing tensions in the Korean peninsula in particular and in the world in particular. The United Nations is justified in sanctioning North Korea. Unfortunately it is the people of North Korea who suffers from the depravity of its leader Kim, who does not hesitate to execute close relatives and former lovers.

we should not be blind to the machinations of this clown Kim. It is time that the whole world should bring down this supreme dictator Kim and put him on trial for murder, for starving his people and for developing unneeded nuclear weapons.

The latest news is that dictator Kim is justifying the latest nuclear test as a self-defense stap against the U.S. Question: Is the U.S. threatening to invade North Korea? See [3].

Homeless and worse, abandoned

Do not we have all relatives? I see kids sleeping in the sidewalks, but this person is a full grown man, I often find him sleeping and eating at Philcoa. I hope the DSWD will round up this destitute man and others like him and provide housing and care. Some of these people have mental problems and I hesitate in approaching these types to give food.

Charity starts at home, and I hope any relative who sees this photo will have the heart to take him in to feel at home.

Did Mar Roxas lie about his Wharton degree?

I now have more than 6inches high of newspapers, mostly free Manila Bulletin from a ChowKing branch. I wanted to write more on national, and international affairs, but academic teaching
made me too tired to say or write two centavos worth of personal opinion.

In the past weeks, the presidential race has become entertaining as the noontime tv shows. The popular boastful candidate from Davao City, Rodrigo Duterte, claimed that mar Roxas does not have a Wharton degree, saying it was just a myth. Perhaps Duterte felt he has to respond to Mar's earlier claim that the peace and order status in davao city, which is of course verified by statistics was just a fable.

This senseless word war, with Duterte warning to slap Roxas about his Wharton degree,and the latter inviting Duterte to the Cubao's white house residence of Roxas for a slapping match, hopefully will die down and presidential hopefuls hunker down to more pressing concerns.

It is claimed by some that even the US Ambassador was confused by mar's claim of having a Wharton degree. Here is the supposedly source from [1] Wikileaks!:

Roxas earned an economics degree at the Wharton School of Business and pursued post-graduate studies at the Kennedy School of Government before working as an investment banker on Wall Street for almost a decade.

Really the cable does not picture Roxas claiming an MBA degree from Wharton but that is the interpretation of most Filipinos, including Duterte and as some people claim even of the U.S. ambassador. In other words, 'nakuryente' si Duterte.

The final word is from University of Pennsylvania itself: A graduate, whether an undergraduate or in a graduate course is an alumnus. Our readers is invited to read which has several articles on this discussion of Mar's Wharton economics education,

The Paris Attack and the decline of the American Presidency?

In the worst demonstration of the warped violent minds of ISIS or ISIL, a group of more than 7 suicidal Islamic terrorists managed to kill 150+ people in Paris, France.

See: USA Today

The Islamic State or ISIS claimed responsibility Saturday for a "blessed battle" of revenge in the killing of at least 127 people in multiple terror attacks of shootings and explosions in Bataclan Theater, Paris, France. Most of the victims were listening to an American rock band Eagles of Death Metal when the blasts started. Nothing like it has happened in the history, post WW II, of France.

It seems strange that ISIS chose France instead of Russia which is quite active in Syria by its direct involvement,sending weapons, fighter bombers and advisors to prop up the regime of Assad. Stranger still is the actions of the American president,Obama, who just before the public attacks in France declared that ISIS has been controlled and diminished!

Yesterday, he appeared at a news conference later careful not to offend the perpetrators. To quote:

"(it was) attack on all humanity and the universal values we all was a heartbreaking situation"

but he said he did not want to speculate about who may be responsible for the tragedy.

Obama called Hollande to offer his condolences and to restate "the United States' steadfast, unwavering support for the people of France" whom he called "our oldest ally and friend." The leaders promised to work together to defeat the "scourge of terrorism."

This is not the first time Pres. Barack Obama of the USA seems out of place, remember the time he made a laughable suggestion that young Muslims should be provided with job training to prevent them from joining ISIS! Pres. Barack Obama will go down on history as soft on Islamic terrorism, perhaps he is a closet Muslim? He wanted all American troops out of the flashpoints in the Middle East but his hands has been forced by the swift advance and expansion of ISIS in the volatile region. Now he is sending military advisers to help allies.

We see that the US is in decline, due to softness of Pres Barack Obama towards Muslim terrorists. He appeared shocked that Russia became more directly active militarily in Syria.

We send our condolences to the relatives and friends of the victims of this cowardly attacks.

Bonbong Marcos caught lying about academic credentials?

Rappler has an explosive story about the senator and son of his namesake former dictator Ferdinand Marcos.

His resumé posted on the Senate website indicates he got a Bachelor of Arts degree from Oxford and a Masters in Business from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania which he attended from 1979-1981. it turns out, he did not complete the course at Wharton and failed to get his MBA degree.

Here is the latest snapshot taken just a while ago around 9:30 AM March 6, 2015, from his official Senate page []

A lot of people has come to grief in their career for claiming degrees earned from reputable schools. We will make a list shortly.
