Journalist attacks Poe on comments on jeepney modernization



Jay Sonza, a journalist, has shot back against Senator Grace Poe who had a lot to say about the jeepney modernization program and how it greatly burdens ordinary jeepney drivers. Sonza posted his response to Poe on Facebook and had his supporters show their agreement with him as well.

According to Sonza, Poe said that there was something wrong with the modernization program and this lapse warrants an investigation from the senate in order to secure the welfare and rights of the jeepney drivers.

Poe says that the eighty thousand pesos’ aid of the government to these jeepney drivers are just not enough to buy the one million peso worth modern jeepneys.

To this, Sonza replies that it is not even the jeepney drivers that will be buying the modern jeeps, but the operators. He says that buying franchise of these jeepneys is a privilege and not a right.

He even says that jeepney drivers are lucky because the government is offering them subsidies.

Sonza then goes on to say that Poe should not side with the members of Piston. Sonza accuses them of no wanting progress for the country, but rather wanting to replace the current government with a communist rule.

“iyong mga lider at miyembro ng piston hindi na mababago ang tindig niyan. ang layon nila ay palitan ang gobyerno ng komunismo. walang pakialam iyan sa programa ng gobyerno kung maganda o hindi. tapos diyan ka pa umepal sa communist front organization,” Sonza said.

Ending his post, Sonza says that he is trying his hardest not to curse at Poe even though there are a lot of things that according to him, she has gotten wrong. And also, he says that he does not want to curse at Poe “out of respect” to Poe’s father, Fernando Poe Jr., and her adoptive mother.

Umepal na naman si Aling Grasya. Kahapon nakisawsaw siya sa grupo ng Piston na kontra sa Jeepney Modernization Program.

Sabi nIya, may something (wrong) daw sa programa, dahil iyong 80k na tulong ntg gobyerno ay hindi sapat para maka buy ng modernong jeep na mahigit isang milyon kaya dapat imbestigahan ng senado ito. kawawa naman ika ang mga drivers. 

Hoy tanga, operator ang bibili, hindi mga driver at talagang walang pambili ang driver. kaya nga siya driver at hindi operator.

Seriously,uulitin ko ang ilang beses ko ng sinulat dito, franchise to operate a public conveyance is a PRIVELEGE. Hindi ito karapatan. Negosyo ito. It is a business venture by the applicant. 

Kailangan mong mangapital. Suwerte na nga ng mga jeepney operator ngayon, dahil binibigyan sila ng 8ok na pang down sa bagong sasakyan. Gago lang ang hindi nakakaunawa nito.

wow, ang taba ng utak sa talampakan ng senadorang gusto ng re-election sa 2019. gusto yata niya ipamigay ng gobyerno ng libre ang mga modern jeep. pag-aralan mo muna tsang grace ang programa. parang lasing ka lang kung makaporma.

Hay naku grace poe-llamanzares, gusto kitang murahin pero hindi ko magawa out of respect to my dearly departed friend FPJ and your adoptive mother inday swany."
