Duterte: "Let the Children Sleep in the Neighborhood"

No street drinking after 10:00 PM. This is one of the many regulations of Duterte, the new elected President of the Philippines. The premise of his regulation is difficult life of Filipinos. 

The presumptive President then gave illustration of a typical life of a Filipino. A mother who gets up early in the morning to prepare food and feed the children before she goes to work. On her way to work she has to commute two times, then wait for the MRT, sometimes it does not come. Comes home late at night, prepares food again for the following day. Then wash clothes. Duterte said, "No more drinking at 10:00 PM. Let the children sleep in the neighborhood...don't let the Filipino suffer even more for he is already suffering. 

Listening to his illustration where he believes represents 90 percent of all Filipinos moved me!
