OBAMA ANWERS “3 A.M.” CALL

 

CHICAGO (jGLi) –  In the heat of the 2008 presidential primary election campaign, Hillary Clinton fielded a campaign ad, which featured a telephone ringing at 3 a.m. It promoted the idea that Barack Obama was not prepared to pick up the call at a critical hour. It was telling American primary voters that in case a crisis would develop, she wanted them to know that the inexperienced Illinois senator was not ready to respo...

CHICAGO (jGLi) – When Philippine’s national hero Jose Rizal said, “Ang hindi magmahal sa sariling wika ay daig pa ang amoy ng mabahong isda,” (those who do not love their language evinces a smell worse than a rotten fish), perhaps, it also applies to other native cultures and traditions.

Perhaps, Rizal was meaning to say that one could absorb the cultures of others.  But these newfound cultures shoul...
