CPD Law sucks. It's another example of bad legislation crafted with good intentions. Imagine already having a PhD from an Ivy League school, and you have to cough up a lot of dough just to put up with seminars conducted by people who got theirs from diploma mills. Obsolete na nga ang ise-seminar sayo, libo-libo pa ang babayaran mo para dun. Kairita, di ba?
Aside from that bad idea, Trillanes should also be credited for amending the AFP Modernization Law. Without his inputs, our soldiers probably wouldn't have enough toys to quickly deal with insurgents. How long would it have taken our military to deal with the Maute in Marawi without those FA-50s?
Speaking of military hardware, funding for the next phase of military modernization has been slashed. Under whose purview is that?
Are you giving credit to Trillanes for the FA-50s?
The FA-50s has been specified by the AFP as part of the modernization program long before Trillanes' stint as Senator. The credit should go to the military leadership and Department of Defense strategic planning staff, not to the politicians.
