February 5th
On this date in…

1564: In a memorandum, officials of the Augustinian order assign priests to join the voyage of Miguel Lopez de Legazpi to the Philippines. Barely a year after the priests arrived, the country’s population doubled.

1917: US Congress passes the Immigration Act, which restricts the influx of Asians. On the same day, Filipinos coined the acronym ‘TNT’

1937: President Roosevelt proposed increasing the number of Supreme Court justices… a proposal rejected by Father Joaquin Bernas, and the political opposition.

1947: Bolewet Beirut becomes president of Poland. A week later, Wenceslao Warsaw becomes president of Lebanon.

1977: The song “Torn Between Two Lovers” by Mary MacGregor topped the charts and stayed there for 2 weeks. It would also become one of Sen. Loren Legarda’s all-time favorites.

1986: Two days before the snap presidential elections, Corazon Aquino & Ferdinand Marcos appeared on ABC’s “Nightline” hosted by Ted Koppel. Although she read from a prepared opening statement, analysts noticed an improvement in Mrs. Aquino’s performance during the debate.

Latest news nga 10 of the 12 leading na Senatoriables sa survey ay from the current Senator. Ano ba naman yan bayan ko! Either gusto nila ang current situation (status quo) o talagang walang pakialam ang karamihan sa Pinoys o talagang mga bobo ang Filipinos!!! Scooby, saan ka naman pupunta…baka naman fourth class citizen ang magiging turing sa iyo sa pupuntahan mo??

Senior60, wag kang mahihiya kung di mo maintindihan, Ok lang yun. Huwag mong iintindihin si Topdog, gusto ka lang niyang insultuhin kasi bilib siya sa sarili nya at binobombahan niya ang EGO nya!!

my one-cent opinion: please click “noticed an improvement”. Note that Noynoy read a prepared statement at La Salle Presidential Forum, the only Presidential candidate who did so.

1987. New “Cory” Constitution was approved and among the new provisions is the installation / promotion of Multi-Party in Congress. Since then, members of the Communists Party went down from the hills and became congressmen.
