LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… And God said, `Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years’…” (Genesis 1:14, the Holy Bible).

-ooo-

LTFRB IS ALL WRONG ON UBER AND GRAB: Just what is LTFRB (or the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board) thinking when it suspended Grab and Uber for one month?

Were they thinking of the interest of the riding public, or the interest of private common carriers who have been exerting great pressures on paid cohorts so the stiff competition provided by Grab and Uber can be stifled?

Franchise is just a legal fiction so private companies can help the government deliver public services the government itself cannot perform. It is not a hard and fast rule that should be complied with, as if life and death depended on it.

-ooo-

FRANCHISES ARE MERE LEGAL FICTION, INVENTED TO SERVE THE PUBLIC: Di ba, during Christmas seasons, All Saints Day commemorations, Holy Weeks and other holidays constituting long weekends, LTFRB suspends the requirement of a franchise before a vehicle can ferry passengers, since existing franchisees cannot cope up with the number of travelling individuals?

At this point, only the morons in government cannot see that there is a need to relax or suspend the rule on franchises on matters of transporting commuters, because common carriers cannot simply do the job.

There is a compelling need for Uber and Grag nowadays, and only those being paid by inutile common carriers handsome fees cannot see this need. Wow, when will God take away the morons and the paid hacks in govenment? Ang tagal naman, Panginoong Diyos at Tagapagligtas.

US SOLAR ECLIPSE A SIGN OF GRIM EVENTS COMING? The total solar eclipse that will hit the United States from coast to coast on August 21, 2017 is touted to be an an ominous sign sent by God that heralds the coming of a grave occurrence in the world.

I am praying and hoping that it is not a sign designed to warn all of us about an impending disaster, such as a nuclear war between the US and North Korea. This of course is a very distinct possibility during these days, on account of the raging dispute between the two countries over the threat of North Korea to send missiles armed with nuclear warheads to Guam, a US terrioty.

When this eclipse happened in the past, it served as a warning of grim events, including the dropping of two atomic bombs in Nagasaki and Hiroshima, Japan, in 1945. Its appearance, once again, in the aftermath yet of the fiery exchange of tirades between the US and North Korea is making many religious leaders quaking in their boots.
