President Duterte and his followers promote the biggest DECEPTION and con in the Philippines. They push for Federalism and constitutional reform or charter change (cha-cha) just to boost political dynasties and to give the Muslims(Moros) their own state, a "BangasaMoro" (Muslim Nation), an Islamic Nation within the Philippines.

Philippines, is the only country in the world which is 85% Catholic that created FIVE(5) national laws "favoring", "respecting" and "financing" the religion of ISLAM.
Then made it unlawful to finance all other religions.
The only country in the world that has a government commission that caters to Muslims only, for the hajj, for madrasas, and the spread of Islam at government's expense PAID by the taxes of Non-Muslims.

Religion is always good for the people but it should never be embraced or financed by government. Tax exemption is not tantamount to financing. Every non-profit organization is tax-exempt.

History of Kabasalan

The municipality of Kabasalan, Zamboanga Sibugay has its humble beginning from just a cluster of Subanen houses scattered throughout the area and more dominant on what is now Poblacion Kabasalan. The native's main economic activity then, was farming, fishing and hunting.

The Subanen were the first inhabitants of the place when the municpality was dominantly covered with big trees, jungles and mangroves and the habitat of wild life and of wild flowers. Nobody knows from where the Subanen came from before inhabiting Kabasalan. There are two legends, both at which carry weight up to the present of how the place got its name. The first legend was when that place was being explored by the Americans, the place was surveyed for plantation of abaca and rubber in the first quarter of the 20th century. The place was already inhabited by the Maguindanao along the coastal areas and by the Subanen on the upland portion. Upon the arrival of the first American explorers in the place where the Philippine Rubber Project Company is now located, one of the explorers/surveyors accosted one of the native and asked him the name of the place pointing to the plants growing abundantly in front of them and wanted to know its name, answered that is "Babasal" or red squash. The explorer noted the word Babasal as the name of the place. As the plantation took its roots with recruited workers from the Visayas and Luzon, the name of the place has gone changes.The Cebuano called the place as "Kabasalan". The prefix "ka" in Cebuano means "the place of". Thus the Cebuano dialect as the place of the red squash metamorphosed "Babasal" into "Kabasalan". the second legend has something to do with the weather. The place was being noted for its very high rainfall, even to this day. The place has no dry months. High peaks surround it in the northern portion and the mangroves along the Sibuguey Bay on the southern portion, the place was noted for its being wet throughout the year.

To the Cebuano, wet is "Basa". Some "Kabasaan" or the place that is always wet called Kabasalan. Later, the people agreed to call the place as Kabasalan as the name of the place, which was carried unto the present. The truth of the proceeding legend or the tale is now lost in the abyss of history and only time knows the truth. (source of article verbatim from:

Natural Resources of Kabasalan, Zamboanga Sibugay, 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.
