It has been a while before I wrote an article about Morato. I have kept silent and let my last write-ups stand and live my thoughts as those will never, ever change. I have done so intentionally so as to prevent the Morato issue from making him an awful person to the public. I think they know enough to consider this fact already. My blogs are just there to support them. I used plain uncomplicated reasoning in advancing my proposition, that Morato does not deserve any trust from the Filipinos who might have inadvertently gave him that.
Of all the issues that Morato has included himself, the most entertaining was his strong accusations against PCSO. Why? This argument is thrown around every time by everyone from the news flashed on televisions to the articles that could be found on the papers and internet. It boomed like a blockbuster movie starred by the most promising actors and actresses. The common shut-up question would be: “Why should we believe Manoling Morato?” Let me point this out to you. I am convinced that he has knuckled down enough agony and deceit that the country will feel for years to come. I believe members of his administration lied in our faces and stole our repositories in clear daylight. His dirty works has tossed many of us into poverty and killed many Filipinos by his corruption. Frustrated that his atrocious acts will be revealed, he points his finger at those impeding his plans. He pins the blame to the present PCSO administration and the blame game begins. Oh, he plays it really well.
Of course, the argument is not only about change but also validating the facts that are laid down on the table by Morato to support his allegations, if there are. Another question that begs to be answered is this: “What makes this person ANY DIFFERENT from others who ruled PCSO to merit the trust being given to him, unwittingly or not?” Margie Juico has played relatively similar stunts. Maybe even surpassed the works of Morato. This could definitely be justified by the progress PCSO has made over the past months. So what anointed Manoling Morato to make the very good leader in him and separate himself from the ills of all administrations that took over PCSO and tout about it?
This man came from a very wealthy family. Lucky him, he was not able to get a feel of what it is like to force yourself to sleep so you don’t feel the painful state of weakness caused by the need of food. How can he say that he has the heart for the poor if he does not even understand what is it like to be one? Should mere affiliation to his deceased rich parents automatically let him develop the heart for these people? If this is the case, should we expect all members of the upper class upright, ergo capable of managing PCSO and not robbing our coffers? His parents can only do so much in building a Manoling. Truth out, he is a failure to his parents. What have you done, Manoling? His record is not clean, rather it is sanitized. A glimpse to his record into his PCSO term would tell you how great this man is. De facto, a quick look into the 42B contract on thermal paper will disprove all claims that he has faultless record to speak of.
Give me one reason, and I mean just one, why I should trust Manoling Morato’s words and I will dig the deepest of deep to search for words that would celebrate his name, or I can just shut up (I prefer the latter by the way. The former is just way too impossible.)
