    • That’s okay GP Cox, I understand your position. This is a site about people and not about political commentaries. I will try as much as possible to stick to factual information.

      • Much appreciated. I have quite a few Filipino friends and I do not wish to appear as siding with one or another political person or group.

        • That’s understandable. Actually, I have strong political opinion on certain issues but I try to restrain from posting my controversial views.
