Abolish the House…and OTHERS

I just want to share this article by Neal Cruz in Inquirer.net today. There is genuine wisdom in calling for the elimination of the House of Representatives. 

Please click following link to read the full article. http://opinion.inquirer.net/inquireropinion/columns/view/20081124-173974/Abolish-the-House-not-the-Senate 

Among the other issues highlighted by Mr. Cruz, this is what struck me the most. “…we might as well abolish or reduce the members of the provincial boards, city and municipal councilors and barangay officials. They are draining public funds so desperately needed for infrastructure, health and education, agriculture, poverty alleviation, homes for the homeless, etc. Instead the money goes to their pockets in the form of salaries and allowances and kickbacks. And all for what? For nothing. On the contrary, they contribute to corruption and lawlessness. They are the ones that coddle squatters, sidewalk vendors, jeepney and tricycle drivers in exchange for their votes.” 

This is so true… I suggest we add the Sangguniang Kabataan to this abolition wish list as well. 

Right now, with the global financial crisis and all, what we need is a ‘lean but mean’ government structure!!!

    totally agree. hehe. a lot of people hated marcos when he was president. but actually (and i’m saying this not because i’m thaaat old, but it’s what i heard from most of my aunts, uncles and lolos and lolas)yung gobyerno nya (assemblymen, etc.) were way better than what we have now. andaming congressmen, senators and what-have-yous ngayon. andaming pinapasweldo. andaming binibigyan ng pork barrel. tapos san mo sila makikita? andun sa las vegas nanonood ng boxing match ni pacquiao. i’m sure personal money nila ginamit nila dun. yeah right.

    OT – heard from ann that you’ll be a daddy soon. congrats! i’m soooo inggit. hehehe.
