  • My Take On The PNP Leadership Race

    Appendix; Keywords will be Keep or Dump. There will be a slot called Good at job, Last Chance Saloon and Rope to Hang Self. “Last chance saloon” means that they have been there a while not done much and need to start acting in this/next admin or be removed....
  • Media must pick a side and stand by that choice

    The media is laced with hypocrisy.  Many times it is unintentional, but those unintentional moments oftentimes mount after a while. These moments ensure that whatever stance the paper, editor or writer may hold, a belief sets in with the populace which can never be removed no matter how much...
