“JLS – Reporting from overseas”

The longer I stay in the Philippines, the more disturbing it is to watch the massive numbers of grandfathers/greatgrandfathers lusting after girls who could be their granddaughter.

Now I have long believed age does not matter when it comes to love, and it should not, however there is a big difference between love and lust, and exploiting vs caring about those young women.

Recently I was reading an obituary written by a fellow expat, of a man who was so painfully aware that he was old (somewhere in his upper 70’s) he described it with … Read the rest

Google killed PanaramioI am sure you are all aware of how much fun it was to explore Google Earth, and look at eye witness photos of what life is like down there on that part of our plant.

The bad news is the Google Earth simply closed the doors on Panaramio, they don’t need the millions of people who contributed their photos anymore. Over the next year they want all of you photographers to move to a much better location called Google Plus where they can load your pages full of commercial advertisements.

This is the second blow in a row for … Read the rest

“JLS – Reporting from overseas”

As a foreigner watching the senate hearings I was stunned at one portion of the question where De Lima was what in most courtrooms is termed badgering the witness. De Lima has a history of having failed to bring a case against Duterte via the human rights organization years ago.

For those of you who might question the numbers I posted, please start watching this video at the 1 hour mark. I highly suggest you watch Senator Gordon’s speech, or exchange with Dela Rosa, start watching about the 1 hour and 20 minute mark, and … Read the rest

“JLS – Reporting from overseas”

 

Unless you turn off the TV, close your internet account, it’s nearly impossible as a foreigner living in the Philippines not to be exposed to this conversation. I was going to use the word debate, however it’s really not a debate at all.

In a very clever move by someone who herself is being questioned for her involvement in the drug trade, Leila de Lima was given the go ahead to investigate “present or current” extra judicial killings, however she has turned this into a review of an already investigated review of the … Read the rest

“JLS – Reporting from overseas”

When you hear the USA, United Nations, and Amnesty International all ganging up on Duterte, you might think that Duterte ranks among the world’s most violent dictators. All 3 of these who stand in accusation, really cannot duck behind ignorance as an excuse, at very least they are somewhat complicit in having created the drug haven the Philippines has become.

It’s time the world spent more time watching those who speak the truth, than those who are out there trying to protect their drug investments in the Philippines.… Read the rest

“JLS – Reporting from overseas”

I really did not want to get involved in speaking on the current state of affairs in the Philippines, but for the love of justice, and love of country, and because of interference from outside of the Philippines by way of the United Nations and the United States of America, I feel obligated to speak up.

“JLS – Reporting from overseas”

Crazy title right? Well it is my intention to draw your attention first of all to the fact many humans, citizens of the Philippines, get treated much worse than most dogs in the western or so called first world countries, so keep that in mind as I share my feelings with you about what I see here in the Philippines.

Walking, I don’t know about all of you readers, but I am at that age where I have to walk in order to keep my heart healthy and keep my blood circulating, and in doing … Read the rest

OK today its rant time, how many of you use Google as a search engine, only to get sucked into websites, some who won’t even allow you the use of your back key to return to your search?

Then you have that horrid website called Pinintrest that’s a glorified cash cow for its owners, and the public gets sucked into its vortex every time you look for something online.

Facebook is loaded with clickbait, websites that appear to have something of interest, but all you find is a page loaded full of commercials to make its owners rich. They get … Read the rest

As we age some of us become complacent, and fall into a routine that could be called a rut, then something or someone comes along and you have no choice but to rebuild life all over again, so what better way to do that then fly halfway around the world, and leave the old life behind?

We flew halfway around the world to discover a whole new perspective on problems, issues and excitement, so over the next 2 to 3 years, yes we plan to stay that long, you will be reading more stories as seen through my eyes about … Read the rest

Recently I have been reading about a group of mayors who think the answer to municipal problems is collecting on the carbon tax. What a bunch of ignorant and self-centered fools. Are you forgetting or is it by design and intent that northern communities have the least chance of ever seeing transit as an alternative means of transportation, they already pay the highest food prices, with the worst selection for quality. toon

Adding insult to injury is the stupid majors in the north that support such idiocy, just because they can ride a bike to the majors office, does not mean … Read the rest
