Social disintegration in the Philippines
The universality of language does not equally connote cultural homogeneity. Be that as it may, we cannot stay unreceptive when a language is close to total disintegration. The Cavite-based Philippine Creole Spanish, more prevalently known as Chabacano, is one of the unique, diverse and endangered languages solely existing in the archipelago which served before as a local contact language between the natives and non-natives in the region. The objectives of the paper are to contextualize the present sociolinguistic state of Chabacano in the speech community of Ternate and Cavite City; recognize the imperative factors which led to its gradual endangerment [and regression]; and the language’s revitalization and future direction.

1 Mayor, 2 Guys, 1 Shih Tzu
By FRANK RICH
For the past two months Rudolph Giuliani has been coming home at night to one of the happiest marriages in New York.
That's how long the mayor, in flight from his own marital wreckage at Gracie Mansion, has been a frequent sleepover guest at the home of Howard Koeppel and his partner, Mark Hsiao. Mr. Koeppel, who is 64, is a Queens car dealer who has been both a close friend and prodigious fund-raiser of Mr. Giuliani's since 1989. The 41-year-old Mr. Hsiao is a Juilliard-trained pianist who works at the city's Department of Cultural Affairs

Hitler's Henchman Goering was it, would be PROUD of America's Propaganda Machine. But lookee here, the newspapers are crying that they're losing out?. WHY?. Because alot of Americans don't see the need to pay a DIME for 2 columns of BS and 10 pages of advertising. Plus, ain't that also the result of our "dumbing down" schools?. It's true, kids can't read their h.s diplomma and what's worse, they've been told "dumb is okay, the gov't will take care of you". The truth would make their heads hurt.
WELL, it's going to be HELL when China no longer loans us any more money and even Social Security quits coming in the mail
