A national teachers group joined anti-pork protests Friday in various cities in the country, on the eve of World Teachers’ Day, as they slammed President Benigno Aquino’s defense of maintaining his discretionary fund while refusing to increase their salaries.
Imagine that! Big lump sums of money going to the personal discretion of the Congressmen and Senators who were blest with Noynoy’s benevolence? Did these sums of money go to projects? Haha! And why not all the legislators were given? If DAP funds are indeed meant for “Accelerated Development”, then where?

I have yet to see and hear in the media a Moro politician speak openly for the abolition of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF)or commonly called Pork Barrel.
