Federalism in the Philippines is simply a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State. Bangsamoro is POISON. Religion must never rule supreme over any region, province, city, municipality or barangay. All religions must be treated equally.
The Philippine government must STOP FINANCING Islam.

Federalism a ploy to create a Bangsamoro State 2.JPG

To have an Islamic State in a Non-Islamic federal form of government invites CHAOS and or possibly later secession from the country. India, USA, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina are some of the countries with the federal form of government. Issues with Islam exist but so far not one of them has a Muslim state. Because they know that it will only lead to chaos. Yet the Philippines tempts this Bangsamoro State idea. Learn from the mistake of Russia. They did this, and is now miserably paying the price. Religion and Government must be kept separate. Doesn't the Philippine legislature understand this? Or possibly the legislature of the Philippines was "bought and paid for" by the Muslim advocates and the Political Dynasty advocates?

Soldiers of the Philippines, you are at war with the Islamic Terrorists in Mindanao. These terrorists are MOROS or MUSLIMS.


The government of the Philippines is financing these Moros/Muslims, and here you are being shot at and killed by these Moros who are financed by the Philippine government.
Federalism in the Philippines is pushed and supported by four types of People.
✅ The first one is by the Muslims (Moros) because they want an Islamic state of their own. Federalism guarantees them an Islamic State.
✅ The second is by the greedy (Kanya-Kanya) mentality who are also the proponents of political dynasties.
✅ The third are the ignorant, the blind followers or the minions of the proponents of this type of federalism in the Philippines.
✅ The fourth are those who are paid to say yes. They are just chasing MONEY. They will do anything for MONEY.

Cawit, Zamboanga City, Philippines
Area Size in Hectares: 378 hectares

Location of Cawit, Zamboanga City

  • Distance from CITY PROPER: 13.35 Km.
  • Location: West Coast
  • Estimated 20 minutes ride to reach from the city.

Cawit is a shoreline Barangay. It's neighboring Barangays are Maasin (east), Tulungatung (north) and Recodo (west). If you are driving on the highway to Cawit you will first come through Maasin and then you will see the welcome sign of the Cawit Barangay. While still in Cawit and heading north you will see the Baradero de Recodo to the left. Makes you wonder why they call it Baradero de Recodo when in fact it is in Cawit. The Baradero is where most of the ship repairs are done here in Zamboanga City.

Some areas are situated along the highway and seashore, and the rest in wooded areas of plain and uplands.

The residents are engaged in farming and livestock raising and some are skilled fishermen who always have good catch from the rich marine sources.

History of Cawit, Zamboanga City

By virtue of the passage of Commonwealth Act No. 39, s. 1937, the community of Cawit became a Barangay. It is one of the 98 Barangays of Zamboanga City.

Barangay Cawit has an amusing tale regarding how it got its name "Cawit". Some old folks still recall the stories of their ancestors who resided in this place way back to the Spanish regime. This place is along the seashore on the southern side before and as it is now.

The story happened that one day, during the earlier period of Spanish arrival in Zamboanga Peninsula, there were some Spanish sailors who came to this place while their ship were anchored nearby. They strolled in the seashore planted with coconut trees and rested under a big mango tree.

Some natives passed by. They are individuals who climb coconut trees or pulling down coconuts or "taga-kawit" of coconuts. The Spaniards asked them in Spanish about the name of the place. The natives thought they were being asked about their work and answered "taga-kawit" pointing to the coconut trees. The Spaniards answered: "Si, Si" thinking it was the name of the place. They rode back on the "bancas" piloted by local natives to their ship.

Other Spanish sailors asked them where they came from and said "Cawit-Cawit" and pointed to this place and told the other natives that the white men or Spaniards call this place "Cawit". The name stuck and spread and from generation to generation it has been called "Cawit".

Another short version is about newcomers to the place. Coming from the city proper going to the west coast, while they were still in Barangay Maasin, they always say, that place ahead is curving like "cawit". This was also a source of reference for those referring to the place where Barangay Cawit is located.

Barangay Cawit viewed from the open sea, the Basilan Strait on the south, is a beautiful community with some inhabitants residing on its shores and with a natural background of some ascending terrain and uplands. The place is verdant as one goes into the interior where a clear brook runs downward.

Barangay's power and authority

This is the "Barangay Code of the Philippines".

The barangay has power and authority over its domain. The improvement of the barangay rests on the barangay officials. The barangay chairman, the barangay council and the local businessmen forge the prosperity of the barangay. Not the president of the Philippines, senate, nor congress, not the governor of the province, not the mayor nor council of the municipality or city. Poor barangays stay poor because of weak and/or ignorant(uninformed) barangay leaders.

When roads need to be built or any infrastructure within the barangay is needed, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and demand for it from the city or municipality council. The resolution will force the city/municipal council or responsible government office to hear the legitimate demands. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."

Practically anything that has to do with the barangay, the barangay officials have a say on it and most likely the authority over it. The majority of the barangay officials are not aware of their duties and power. They depend on the city council or mayor. The elected barangay officials are afraid of the mayor and city/municipality's "Sangguniang Panlungsod". They are in fear of being ousted or removed from office. The truth is, "Sangguniang Panlungsod" does not have the power to remove any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Information is power. Be informed.

The control of traffic is not up to the city council or chief of police. It is controlled by the barangay. If the barangay needs traffic enforcers, the barangay can make a resolution to demand it from the city or municipality council. When the electric coop or the water district do not maintain their lines, the barangay can directly demand for the maintenance from the utility companies. No need to wait for city council.

The citizens also has the power to make demands to the barangay officials. In case the officials get blinded. Simply file an official complaint with the barangay secretary naming the Punong barangay as the respondent representing the barangay.

  • BUDGET: As far as the preparation for the budget expenditures, it starts at the barangay level, then moves on to cities, municipalities, provinces and regions. The barangays need to exercise their authority. They need to put their yearly budget together for their administration and future projects. The majority of the barangays leave this job to the municipality and city. This is so wrong. Then when the budget doesn't come or is lacking, they complain.
  • The budget for the barangays does go to the City or Municipality, but simply for holding and later distribution. The city or municipality DOES NOT approve the budget. It was already approved by congress. The city or municipality simply "distributes" the approved budget.
  • Imperial Manila does not exist anymore. Budgetary planning has been "DECENTRALIZED since 1991.".

Ignorance keeps the pinoys thinking that Manila rules. Be informed, be educated and make your barangay prosper.

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!


Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More


We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.
