Recap: Anthony Bourdain, Hawaiian Miles, Lyft Free Rental & More

  • What are HawaiianMiles worth? by Freequent Flyer Book. Good look at HawaiianMiles.
  • Duterte Wants the Death Penalty Back by The New York Times. Death penalty for the possession of drugs seems to be excessive, but that was one of Duterte’s main running points. Realistically not sure how much the death penalty actually matters considering his death squads are estimated at already killing over 7,000 people. That being said this NY Times articles has some good information on why it does need to be stopped there.

well i consider this a personal finance blog… so i guess that can be included in your exceptions.

I’m not sure why you have included this link about Duterte, it has ***nothing*** to do with personal finance or churning. You want to avoid political commentary or you might risk losing readership really quick. Please note I am not a Duterte acolyte.

His blog makes us cash. cash is king. readers are going nowhere because of that. calm down it wasnt a main post. Im currently in manila, this is semi-related to travel and churning since PI is a common redemption.

It’s Will’s blog, his rules, his opinions. I’m so sick of “oh don’t say anything you might offend people.” Do you need a safe space?

He can post whatever he likes. If you don’t like it, there’s the door.

The political post was unexpected and a little off-putting. I don’t come here for that and I imagine the vast majority of your readers do not either.

Doc. I agree. I have never made political commentary here. But I have a field day on many boardingarea blogs after they have posted even one political post to drum up clicks. In your case you are just linking. But stay away from politics unless you want most unrelated posts to devolve into politics in the future.

This is one blog that is all about making money. And you are very good at it.

No need to protect people from ideas and events, the world is not just $5 off $10 at Papa John’s, have at it! It is fair to readers to develop a consistent approach of when you’ll cover political and when not. In addition to the important human rights situation in the Philippines, there is very much a real connection to your blog content and travel – think of how many financial institution customer service and travel industry jobs around the world are staffed by Filipinos. We should give a thought to people we often treat as invisible.

Guess this is a finance blog and not much of a travel blog, but my thought was that all the folks that enjoy using their credit card points to travel to Manila and perhaps enjoy drug use should be aware of these policies and police viewpoints.
