I’ve created a new site called Vincenton.com and I’m currently transferring important articles to this new site. However, this doesn’t mean that I’m shutting down this old site. I’ll just leave it as it is. From now on, The Vincenton Post serves as an archive site.
So, for updates and new articles, please visit the Vincenton.com site.
- NOTE: I posted the following as a Facebook note. It is a short remark on this highly ridiculous op-ed that exposes its scribbler’s delusional academic supremacism or crude sense of superiority just because she’s a product of a government subsidized state university.
This op-ed exposes the failure of public education in the Philippines. How can a supposedly schooled individual write an article utterly bereft of substance, of reason, and of basic logic? I think the author of this piece merely exposes her parochial mentality and inability to grasp basic concepts.
The utterly crude opinion piece titled “UP Bar None” states:
[T]o be an iskolar ng bayan is both a beauty and a burden. More so than any other university in the country, we are expected to give back.

- NOTE: I posted the following as a Facebook note. It is a short remark on this news story that reveals Russia has been warning the United States government about the Boston Marathon bombing suspects’ mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaev.

I am a great admirer of the Islamists’ war strategy. For centuries they used ‘economic warfare’ to weaken or destroy their enemy. Ever heard of the Barbary Pirates of the Mediterranean? America’s first overseas war under Pres. Thomas Jefferson was against the Islamic Barbary Pirates who were running a slave trade for more than 300 years.
The big difference is that over a century ago (or before 1917), their wars were waged in the name and under the banner of the Ottoman Empire. The dissolution of that Islamic empire led to the rise of “nationalism” in all post-Ottoman states. The long-term mission of the Muslim Brotherhood, created in Egypt a few years after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire in 1917 is to unite all Islamic states under a single global caliphate.

Here’s how to give your parents a ‘mild’ heart attack (lol).
Comedian Nathan Fielder instructed his ‘game’ Twitter followers to do the following:
Fielder asked his twitter followers to send a second message to their parents reading: ‘Sorry ignore that txt. Not for you.’ ‘ Then tweet pic of their response,’ Fielder tweeted. The response was overwhelming. Read more…
