Pork barrel is Theft. Every centavos of tax money should be transparently planed and spent. Lump sum appropriation is theft. Discretion provides opportunity to steal. For delikadesa, all who has pork should resign. No one man should be allowed to decide how to use tax money all by himself. Otherwise we will be destroying the very idea of having a constitution of checks and balance. There is no one man any man can trust to hold and invest money the best way it is for the individual than the individual himself. More so with public officials. It is natural for every person to look after himself the most. Just how Pnoy feels about his pork. He is willing to let go of congressional pork but not his.
