  Roxas backs Degamo-Remollo in Dgte! Reelectionist Gov ROEL DEGAMO welcomes LP Presidential Bet Mar Roxas at the convention center Sunday where he introduced City Mayoral bet ATTY FELIPE IPE REMOLLO ( raising his hands) and all mayors lending support to the independent gubernatorial bet .  

      Taxpayers lose in budget failure    

The failure of the provincial board and the provincial executive in passing the P2Billion budget for Negros Oriental this year is an economic loss to the taxpayers of this province who own the money which could not be properly disbursed by their chosen leaders because of extreme political rivalry.
In the final analysis the approval of the 2016 provincial budget is a conjugal obligation of the Governor and the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, to exercise a responsibility imposed by the sovereign people.

But how could this be possible if the two branches of government refuse to find a common ground to compromise? In all past adminsitrations, despite the deadlock, the board and the guv always find a compromise at the end of the day.

But not this time. Shall the people continue to elect their kind in May 9?--- is now a legitimate issue.


Governor Roel Degamo has accused the SP members led by Vice-Governor Roel Degamo of dragging its feet in approving the executive budget.

In contrast, the SP pointed out that Degamo was at fault of causing the current budget impasse for allegedly refusing to cooperate with the legislative body...



The Japanese government cannot apologize for what happened decades ago about comfort women. As if the Philippines does not know the collaterals of war. Those acts were not government-sanctioned, but a necessary evil that goes with a world war. It happens everywhere. Why does the Filipino want to be paid for every little thing? Are we that desperately and embarrassingly poor? Makaulaw lagi.

So we will also ask the Americans to pay for our comfort women in Subic or clark?— even if it happened years back. Is this the pinoy’s logic? Or are some wise cracks again out to make money out of these old women to whom we have our full sympathy and anger against their molesters. Gipanapi-an na sab ni!

PNOY did not even apologize to the Chinese much more the Hongkong government for the killing of l5 Chinese hostages at the Luneta. That was most embarrassing and a stupid act of government policemen. The Hongkong government did not even ask us to pay blood money for the blood shed by well meaning tourists who were killed by our tactless policemen. And we can afford to ask Japan to pay us for the collaterals of war? Kabaga baya’g nawong uy!

And yet the government paid P143Million to the families of the Mamasapano SAF44 for all kinds of demands and benefits. OK lang.



The COMELEC has made a shocking, if not alarming, revelation that without our knowing, the Philippine National Police has tagged Negros Oriental in the national watch list as among the TOP 6 in potential violenceprone areas this coming elections!

Shocking to know that Negros Oriental is now in the company of TOP6 violence- prone province in the likes of Maguindanao, Lanao del Sur, Cotabato , Western Samar, Pangasinan and Negros Oriental not in that order, according to Comelec provincial chief Atty. Eddie Aba, in our CROSS TALK interview. (page 2 photo)

As the old cliché goes, “silent water runs deep” meaning without our knowing, secretly, private armed groups are now regrouping in the dark, waiting for the right moment to strike whenever necessary upon direction of their political bosses this coming elections.


When we are in our
darkest period, we see light we’ve not seen before.


It’ was nice to spend quality time with family and friends. My coming home vacation was the shortest one I have ever had, there is nothing more ful filling than to spend Christmas Day doing an outreach program to benefit the less fortunate folks in the close neighboring towns of Negros Oriental, Philippines.

The highlight of my visit was to be able to distribute presents such as 500 Jollibee packages containing fried chicken, rice, juice & a surprise toy; 683 pairs of ‘spartan’ brand slippers, more than one thousand five hundred bags of the best quality & most expensive rice, ramen noodles, clothing, chocolates, candies, religious items, etc. The recipients who were a combination of children and adults were all smiles to gladly accept these goodies and seeing their faces light up with pleasure felt so delightfully wonderful as shown on the attached photos....
