Netizen blogger says senator-elect Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa deserves praise not contempt amid “where to attend seminar for neophyte lawmaker” joke

The so-called ‘woke’ and decent people focused their attack at senator-elect Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa for admitting he knows nothing about his job as a lawmaker.

However, Facebook blogger and radio personality Mark Lopez wrote on Facebook the ‘woke’ and the decent got it all wrong.

Lopez said that it wasn’t “Bato’s” fault but the system.

Lopez cited the Constitution that determines who can run for senator:

“No person shall be a Senator unless he is a natural-born citizen of the Philippines, and on the day of the election, is at least thirty-five years of age, able to read and write, a registered voter, and a resident of the Philippines for not less than two years immediately preceding the day of the election.”

If the “woke” and the “disente” wants senators to have sterling credentials, Lopez urged them to fix the system.

Meanwhile, Lopez have nothing but praises for senator-elect “Bato”, how he framed the neophyte senator narrative and started the people talking about what’s wrong with our system.

ITS THE SYSTEM, STUPID

I like what Senator-elect Bato did with his framing of the neophyte senator narrative.

Na trigger nya ang mga ‘woke’ at mga disenteng ipokrito.

Maganda na nabuksan ang issue ng credentials.

Nagkasinigilan tuloy.

Best of all, we get to discourse the requirement for being a senator.

Ang problema kasi ng mga ‘woke’ at elitista eh ang premise nila dapat bago ka maging senador eh credentialed ka. In their ’effin righteousness and air of superiority, they believe that would-be-senators should already be experts in the field of legislation bago pa man sila maupo.

Says who? Not the constitution.

And most certainly not the framers of the current constitution we have.

Eh di sana nilagay na nilang requirement to be a senator dapat lawyer ka and expert ka na sa pag gawa ng batas.

Eh hindi eh. Very basic ang requirement –

“No person shall be a Senator unless he is a natural-born citizen of the Philippines, and on the day of the election, is at least thirty-five years of age, able to read and write, a registered voter, and a resident of the Philippines for not less than two years immediately preceding the day of the election.”

So kung ikaw ay pasado jan, regardless kung artista ka, boksingero, negosyante, pulis, bumbero, sundalo, housewife, tambay, o kasing arte at KSP tulad ni Kris, puede ka maging senador.

Ngayon, being a senator is not akin to being a pilot or surgeon where there are preparatory institutions available for you to be a specialist.

There is no school for senators.

You learn to be a senator when you become one.

It helps a lot if you were exposed and immersed in the legal profession.

BUT IT IS NOT REQUIRED.

In short peeps, hindi si Sen Bato ang may problema. And his self deprecation is actually commendable in the context of what do we really want in a senator.

Binuksan nya ang mga mata at isipan natin.

Gusto nyo pala ng senador na matindi ang credentials?

Huwag nyo hanapin kay Bato.

Ayusin nyo yung sistema.

Madami nga sa inyo ang tagal naupo sa kapangyarihan eh wala naman kayo ginawa.

Ngayon, puro kayo kuda?

Putres!

Your thoughts?
