Should You Dance “CHA – CHA” in the Government?
This article reveals my insights regarding one of the most controversial issues in our country, the charter change. For many years, Philippines has been adapting a democratic – type of government.

Instead of focusing on repairing the country’s economy that was brought to its knees by the airport sit-in, they have instead focused on trying to catch Thaksin, who has been spending much of his time in Dubai since being forced to leave his position thanks to a military coup.Why World is Silent About Gulag KGB Leaders
Indeed, one may wonder why there are many books, articles, movies, museums, exhibitions, memorial events, groups, PhDs, conferences, etc. in relation to Holocaust and we get next to nothing in relation to deaths of millions due to Soviet political repressions at about the same time in history (mostly the 1930’s-1950’s).

It is very tough to do business in a nation that does not honor the written word or make good on verbal contracts.
