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 Oroquieta City, Misamis Occidental, Philippines

article: Verbatim from the LGU of Oroquieta City

"Layawan was the oldest name of Oroquieta, which was the barrio in the province of Misamis since 1861 until 1879. The early settlers then of the barrio were Boholano peddlers. They found so many stray animals along the river, thus they named the place Layawan, which means a place of stray animals. A little later, Misamis was divided into two provinces, Misamis Occidental and Oriental. Then in 1880, Layawan changed its name into Oroquieta when it became a town. Some sources revealed that the town got its name from a famous barrio in Spain where Father Toas Tomas Casado, the first parish priest here and General Domingo Mariones y Murillo, a hero in the battle of Oroquieta, were born."

"Another version is that Oroquieta had derived its name from the word ‘ORO’ and ‘KITA’. The early inhabitants then had found gold along the river. Thus, the name ‘ORO’ which means Gold and ‘QUITA’ or ‘KITA’ which means to find"

Natural Resources of Oroquieta City, Misamis Occidental, 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.

PIA Press Release
Household composting is mandatory in Oroquieta City
by Rutchie Cabahug-Aguhob
Oroquieta City (28 May 2009) -- "We have made household composting mandatory in all our 47 barangays and so far, we have a 90% household level efficiency in our waste segregation compliance."

Thus explained Mayor Jorge Almonte of Oroquieta City in Misamis Occidental, one of the 93 local government units (LGU's) of Northern Mindanao that has successfully implemented Republic Act 9003 or the Solid Waste Act.

The Mayor Oroquieta City who will brief President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on Oroquieta's initiatives in solid waste management during her visit on Friday, May 29, said the Oroquieta City generates some 35 tons of waste per day and its household level of compliance for waste segregation at source is only 10% away from 100% SWM compliance.

Almonte said Oroquieta's Solid Waste Management Information Sheet (SWMIS) as of May, this year, also shows the profile of the volume of waste generation in the city, namely, 9.8% residuals, 86% compostables and 4.2% recyclables.

As to collection method, all 47 barangays are serviced by a compactor and dump trucks which are made available on a scheduled collection system as indicated in the SWMIS, Mayor Almonte said.

So far, we have established a Material Recovery System on a 10.2 hectare area in Barangay Villaflor where a controlled dump for residuals is put up and have submitted a 10-Year SWM Plan to the National SWM Commission, Almonte added.
