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.

History of Dumaguete City, Province of Negros Oriental, Philippines

"Dumaguete" was coined from the Visayan word "daggit" which means "to snatch". Muslim marauding pirates would attack the coastal town, their usual haul was local natives to be sold later to the Chinese in exchange for weapons to be used against the Spaniards.

However, Diego Lopez Povedano in 1572 indicated the place as "Dananguet." But in 1734, Murillo Velarde referred to it, using its present name, as Dumaguete.

In 1890, the island-province of Negros was divided into two politico-military provinces, Occidental and Oriental. As earlier constituted, in 1898, Dumaguete was included in Negros Oriental. On May 1, 1901 after the Philippine-American War, the Americans established a civil government in the province.

When World War II broke out, the Japanese Imperial Forces occupied the city on May 26, 1942. It was liberated on April 26, 1945 by the combined forces of the U.S. Army and the Filipino guerrillas. Three years later, on June 15, 1948, by virtue of Republic Act No. 327, the City of Dumaguete was created. Later, on June 21, 1969, Republic Act No. 5797 was enacted, otherwise known as the Revised Charter of Dumaguete City.

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 ignorant 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 council and congress 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.

Natural Resources of Dumaguete City, Province of Negros Oriental, Philippines

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.

Unionbank opens 181st branch in Dumaguete
By Rachelle M. Nessia

Dumaguete City (12 February) -- Unionbank has opened the doors of its 181st branch in Dumaguete City, signaling the relentless escalation of the city's business climate.

Top officials from Unionbank led by its Chairman and CEO Justo A. Ortiz officially inaugurated its new branch located at Calle Real corner San Juan Street, this city on February 8.

In a press conference held prior to the bank's official opening, Ortiz said that Dumaguete City is one of the important cities nationwide in which they have no presence. "So at this point in time, we are beginning to be more conscious in having a nationwide presence and filling up all the different gaps in our network," he stressed.

Touting itself as one of the most technologically-oriented banks in the country, Unionbank's arrival here also acknowledges Dumaguete's budding niche in internet banking.

Edwin Bautista, Unionbank Retail Banking Head, said that Dumaguete is one the bank's important customers in terms of internet banking.

He cited a study that showed Dumaguete as one of the top three cities in the country in terms of internet penetration.

On the other hand, Unionbank's EON Cyber Card in a survey conducted among Ebay sellers in the Philippines came out as the no. 1 debit card used by Ebay sellers, while 85% of those surveyed chose Unionbank as the preferred mechanism to receive money from online transactions. "So this is one of the things we can offer Dumaguete," said Bautista.

He likewise assured that the bank has exerted efforts to ensure the security of their internet banking. "We have hired local and foreign firms to keep our technology hack-free," stressed Bautista.

This was echoed by Edliberto Bravo, a member of Unionbank Board of Directors, who stressed that Unionbank is "not just another bank as we have hired some of the best minds in the field of computer technology."

Ortiz said that their cutting edge technology-oriented services have made Unionbank a favorite among Business Process Outsourcing firms.

"In fact, we arrived right in time in Dumaguete because we have customers all over the country and we are finding out that they are also expanding to Dumaguete. We follow our customers?since they are beginning to do business here, we need to be here also," he said.

One of Unionbank's customers is Qualfon Quality Contact Services which has now started their expansion program in Dumaguete.

Qualfon is an Information Technology (IT) locator currently employing 2,100 workers inside the Asiatown IT Park in Cebu City and was one of the IT firms visited by Pres. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo on February 3 during the Visayas leg of her week-long Cyber Corridor Tour showcasing the President's IT Milestone Legacy Agenda.

Meanwhile, GSIS eCard holders are also among the reasons for Unionbank's expansion into the provinces, being the official bank issuing the GSIS eCard. "We have a lot of GSIS members who are from this area who prefer to do business with Unionbank in Dumaguete rather than do it in ATMs of other banks," said Ortiz.

Ortiz said that they purchased their branch site in the city as a demonstration of their permanent and committed presence here.

Unionbank Dumaguete Branch is located at Calle Real corner San Juan street, this city.
