The Philippines has been a "decentralized" form of government since 1991, contrary to what most Filipinos think. Ever since the creation of Republic Act 7160, each LGU is responsible for its own domain. Even the smallest LGU the barangay creates its own Budget. It is not dependent on handouts from the city, municipality or province. "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.

Wars of ancient history were about possessions, territory, power, control, family, betrayal, lover's quarrel, politics and sometimes religion.

But we are in the Modern era and supposedly more educated and enlightened .

Think about this. Don't just brush off these questions.

  • Why is RELIGION still involved in WARS? Isn't religion supposed to be about PEACE?
  • Ask yourself; What religion always campaign to have its religious laws be accepted as government laws, always involved in wars and consistently causing WARS, yet insists that it's a religion of peace?


There are only two kinds of people who teach tolerance:
  1. The Bullies. They want you to tolerate them so they can continue to maliciously deprive you. Do not believe these bullies teaching tolerance, saying that it’s the path to prevent hatred and prejudice.
  2. The victims who are waiting for the right moment to retaliate. They can’t win yet, so they tolerate.

History of Tubungan, Iloilo, Philippines

The town of Tubungan was formally founded in1768 through the efforts of Tan Mangon in Barrio Tin-an, which, now forms part of the present town site, and through the contribution “tubong” of people who settled from Nahapay, Guimbal and from the neighboring towns of Igbaras, Leon and Tigbauan. In 1769, Tubungan became an “arrabal”(a political unit bigger than a barrio) of Guimbal due to the unmet requirements that was set by the Law of Indies, that a town must have its own municipal building, plaza, a cemetery and a market. Agustin Mambuti was appointed as the first Teniente to represent Tubungan in the Municipal Council. After several years, in 1803, Tubungan became a municipality with Fernando Paguntalan as its first Capitan, the highest office in the municipality that time. However, bandit raids placed the town under danger, and led to the incorporation of Tubungan to Guimbal from 1806 to 1820.

In 1821, when the situation returned to normal, Tubungan once more became an independent municipality.All family names were made to begin with “T” and with the predominance of family names beginning with “Ta”, to differentiate it with that of Tigbauan. This was ordered by Gov. Claveria in 1850, that all residents in the municipality must adopt surnames given to them and it must begin with the first letter of the name of the town.

Then in the year 1905, the American Civil government ordered the fusion of small towns with the bigger ones. For the second time, Tubungan again became an “arrabal” of Guimbal and remain as such for 33 years, from 1905 to 1938.

All these years, Tubungan had no representation in the municipal government of Guimbal. Every market days, which is Saturday, the municipal treasurer would come to supervise and receive the tax collection. But this is only possible during good-weathered Saturdays. Due to this, a deputy, Mr. Fernando Gargaritano, was permanently assigned until such time that Tubungan became an independent municipality again.

Two policemen, who were natives of the town, were assigned to look after the peace and order conditions.

In later years, some Tubunganon were elected municipal councilors in the persons of: Vicente Tacsagon, Antonio Tanlogon, Lazaro Tamicen, Benito Tagamolila and Marcelino Tabuga. All of them were messengers. They attended to the needs of every Tubunganon. They served as consultants and advisers in the existing laws and were active enforcers. They received complaints and settled local disputes extra-judicially. Transactions, including judicial matters, which cannot be solved locally, were brought by them in the Municipality of Guimbal and even in the capital of the province.

In 1929, Mr. Domingo Tacardon, was elected as the Municipal President of Guimbal. Elected with him were several Tubunganon councilors, and on that time Tubungan was amply represented.

The independence and the separation of Tubungan from Guimbal was the result of keen political rivalry during the 1937 elections. A Tubunganon candidate for Mayor, in the person of Mr. Miguel Tagamolila won by 12 votes against a Guimbaleño candidate, Mr. Felimon Palacios. However, Mr. Felimon Palacios was declared officially as the alleged winner. Feeling aggrieved, the people from Igtuble led by Teniente Donis (Taghap) and from Lanag Norte led by Tan Genton (Francisco) formed an assault group to burn the town of Guimbal. However, they were pacified and were conceded to settle their scores through legal means. Mr. Miguel Tagamolila filed a protest and there were positive indications that would come out victorious. To avert political dissension, the Congressman of the First District of Iloilo, Hon. Jose C. Zulueta and Provincial Governor Tomas Confesor made representation with the President to make Tubungan an independent municipality.

Thus, on May 1938, by virtue of Executive Order No. 143 of His Excellency, Manuel Luis Quezon, President of the Philippine Commonwealth, Tubungan was finally reestablished as an independent municipality with Miguel Tagamolila as the First Mayor.

Natural Resources of Tubungan, Iloilo, 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.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.

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.
