TRILLANES RIGHT IN RENOUNCING COUPS: Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV is right in renouncing coups or rebellions in fighting graft and corruption and other anomalies in government, for the Bible, in its Romans 13:1-2, prohibits fighting the authorities, who, the Bible says, were established by God. Carry on, Mr. Senator, do your job under the guidance of God, and you will surely do more for country and people.

OBAMA PARTY ROUT, ALREADY EXPECTED TWO YEARS AGO: The rout that candidates from the Democratic Party of US President Barack Obama suffered in the hands of American voters Tuesday, November 3, 2010, is something that I expected to happen as early as two years ago, when Obama was inaugurated as the 44th American, and first Black, president.
