Lawmakers to SC: "Free Up Pork Barrel Funds for the Students and the Sick." Nice try, but No Can Do
Even as the outrage over pork barrel funds scam
continues to linger, if not intensify, lawmakers are already itching to feel
out public sentiment by floating their intention to petition the Supreme Court
to Free up a portion of TRO’d funds allegedly for Student’s tuition and medical
assistance to the elderly/sickly. As though they have done good, they’re now cunningly
attempting to impress upon the public that they are concerned for these
citizens who have been dependent on their PDAF for support.
Goodness, the portion they’re claiming to go to these
allegedly worthy ends, to begin with, is scant in proportion to the whole, and
you know where the rest goes. It is like a dressing over the funds to give them
a semblance of legitimate use. And if they think the public buys the idea that
they are doing these as concerned leaders to their constituents, they are underestimating
the public’s intelligence.
It is common knowledge that they do these as schemes
of maintaining their army of voters. It is like payola. And they have been paralyzing
these people by acculturating in them dependency, beggary, and mendicancy. No
wonder why many among so-called beneficiaries who used to go out and make a
living braving their chances in a competitive small-scale market –street
peddling, pedicab-driving, etc– have stopped waking up early for their
industry, instead go into long slumber of the day like fatteners being grown
These people have unwittingly lost their real-life survival
skills. Thanks to the politics of patronage employed on them by their politician-sponsors.
We are no socialist country. People have to earn the food they intend to put on
If the state is to provide them anything, it should be
by means of training in fields that respond to the needs of today’s multitude
of enterprise in order to be employed and be a productive member of society.
For certain, before they have been conditioned to be, and
molded into the, dependents that they have become now, they used to be proud
workers who did not shirk on their responsibility to provide for their family.
They were stoic who did not complain work was so difficult for the little
amount that they earned. They understood the workings of life: If you invest in
your future, it will be brighter.
Aptly, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.
Teach him how to fish, and you feed for a lifetime.”
If they are genuinely concerned about the welfare of
their beneficiaries, they may continue to provide for them, but not from the public
funds that public clamor has saved, and the Court has ordered withheld. They
can take them out of the bulk of pork barrel funds that they have amassed over
the years that are still with them. I know they must be thinking “But they are
in properties now.”
Well, sell them, and you might, just might, save your
soul in the end!”
