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 Daet, Camarines Norte, Philippines

this article copied verbatim from the NSCB-National Coordination Statistical Board

Daet is an ancient settlement. Its history dates back from the time of the Tabon cave men, from either Kalanay Caves of Masbate or the Kagraray Cave in Albay, who escaped from the cruel government of their Rajah. The myth about the Malayan traders as the first people in the Bicol Region has been debunked by the excavations made in the Kalanay and Kagraray caves. Based on the excavations, archaeologists indicated that Malayan settlers came later.

In 1521, Governor General Miguel Lopez de Legazpi sent Captain Juan de Salcedo to locate the rich gold mines of Paracale. On his arrival, Salcedo found thriving settlements built around the gold mines in Paracale and Mambulao (now the municipality of Jose Panganiban) as well as in Daet and Indan. Salcedo found the mines of Mambulao and Paracale "to be excellent, very rich and more than thirty or forty estados in depth." In the thriving settlement of Daet, the Spaniards noted that the houses were clustered together for safety and protection. Thus, the word Daet was derived from the Bicol word dait-daitan which means close to each other.

The existence of the gold mines in the region encouraged the Spaniards to colonize and Christianize the inhabitants. The Bicol Region was later placed under the jurisdiction of Camarines in 1573.

A popular legend among the people of Camarines Norte and Daeteños is the legend of the first abaca plant. According to the legend, the Spanish king exiled a certain Spanish nobleman, Marquis de Camarines. He was believed to have carried the first abaca plant during his travel via the Acapulco-Manila galleon trade route. He was also believed to be one of those selected to plant abaca in the Bicol Region. Nevertheless, the experiment was successful because the Bicol Region became the source of the abaca fiber exported and loaded in the galleons (Manila-Acapulco galleon trade) which went on for almost 250 years.

Also, according to the legend, the Marquis de Camarines fell in love with a Filipina beauty. Their union started a long line of blood relations which linked some families in Daet until today. One of these is the Dela Estrada family who helped implement the development plan of Daet. The Dela Estrada family reportedly shared in the infrastructure development of Daet which included the Catholic Church, the old Spanish bridges, the culverts, and the palatial mansions. Some of them still exist.

From 1565 to 1818, Daet was raided by Moros from time to time. The present municipalities of Basud and Mercedes suffered most. People in these settlements either died or became captives. Because of the raids, the Spaniards fortified Basud and Mercedes. The fort ruins and Spanish cannons are now buried under mounds of sand. It was believed that the bells used in announcing the coming of the Moros were also buried under the fortifications.

During the Philippine Revolution, the people of Daet also figured prominently. On September 16, 1896, many Katipunan leaders and sympathizers were arrested and imprisoned by the Spaniards in Daet. In the final days of the Spanish regime, the Casino de los Españoles was encircled. It became the last and most bloody clash with the Spaniards in Daet. The Bicolanos eagerly waited for the arrival of General Lukban who finally arrived in September 1898. Before his arrival, the Spaniards from Daet fled to Mercedes and boarded the ship Serantes. At the time, the local insurrectos were restless and itched for action. Ildefonso Moreno, unmindful of the risk to his life, gave the signal to attack. He died when a certain Arana fired his pistol in retaliation. During the battle, many of the Spaniards left for Mercedes. It was reported that they bayoneted the Filipino soldiers they brought along with them before sailing for Iloilo.

Two years later, on September 12, 1898, General Vicente Lukban took Daet from the Spaniards. Afterwards, he reorganized and established a revolutionary government in the province. Later, General Lukban turned over the reins of the provisional Philippine government to Don Valeriano Cuaño, municipal captain. He also assigned Capt. Antonio Sanz and a garrison force to defend Daet in case of Spanish reprisal.

Don Antonio Sanz, sector commander and officer of the revolutionary forces, inspired the erection of the first monument built in the Philippines in memory of Dr. Jose Rizal. This monument is found at the corner of Plaza Rizal Libertad of Daet. Unfortunately, the people of Daet forgot their own Bicolano hero, Jose Maria Panganiban, who died much earlier in Barcelona, Spain on August 19, 1880. Other Filipino revolutionaries who were honored were Tomas Zaldua (last of the capitanes) and Jose Abaño. They were tortured for their refusal to reveal the plot to overthrow the Spanish government. A certain Don Aniceto was also burned alive in the public plaza of Daet together with six martyrs on Easter Sunday in April 1898.

After two years, the American forces came and occupied the Bicol Region on January 19, 1900. On March 4, 1900, the American forces, on board the Steamer Venus, arrived without any resistance. Two companies, under the command of General Bates, established a garrison at the town proper. Antonio Sanz, the commander of the revolutionary force, surrendered as previously arranged in Camarines Sur (Daet was still under Ambos Camarines).

Under the American regime, Daet was developed under the new order. On April 27, 1901, a civil government under the Philippine Commission was established in Ambos Camarines. Juan Pimentel Y. Campos was appointed as the first Municipal President. Later, he became the first Provincial Governor of Ambos Camarines.

The Philippine Legislature passed an act in March 1919 authorizing the Governor General to divide the province into Norte and Sur. Camarines Norte was to consist of the towns of Capalonga, Mambulao, Paracale, Indan, Labo, San Vicente, Talisay, Daet and Basud, and islands along the Pacific coast.

Originally, Camarines was one political unit only. In 1829, the province of Camarines was divided in the first of a series of attempts to separate Camarines Norte from Camarines Sur. Ambos Camarines was divided into two, Camarines Norte and Camarines Sur. The Camarines Norte province included the towns of Daet, Talisay, Indan, Labo, Paracale, Mambulao, Capalonga, Ragay, Lupi and Sipocot. In 1846, the towns of Sipocot, Lupi and Ragay were returned to Camarines Sur. Later, in 1854, the two provinces were again united to form the Province of Ambos Camarines. In 1857, they were again separated, and in 1893, again reunited. They remained united as Ambos Camarines until March 1919 when the American Governor approved an act dividing it into Camarines Norte and Camarines Sur.

Until the end of the Spanish regime, barangay Calasgasan and the surrounding area was an independent municipality. It was later merged with Daet after the American liberation. The oldest hacienda, covering almost 400 hectares planted to abaca, is found in barangay Calasgasan where, it is believed,. the municipal site once stood. However, this has yet to be proven by researchers. While Daet regained the old Calasgasan during the Spanish period, it however, lost the big barrios of Basud in 1911 and Mercedes in 1918, which eventually became new municipalities.

During the World War II on December 12, 1941, the Japanese Imperial Forces landed in Legazpi, Albay. Six days later in December 18, Camarines Norte Governor Wenceslao Q. Vinzons organized guerilla units to fight the Japanese. On July 8, 1942 Vinzons was captured and was later executed by the Japanese. When the American Liberation Force came, General Douglas MacArthur on February 5, 1945, ordered the Sixth Army to occupy the Bicol Peninsula. With the assistance of the Filipino guerrillas, the region was liberated from the Japanese.

More than 50 years after the Second World War and in the threshold of the 21st century, Daet has grown into a municipality of 94,184 people as of August 2007 from a small Spanish town of 7,970 souls in 1751. It is the center and capital town of Camarines Norte province.

Barangay's power and authority: A must read for all barangay officials


This is the "Barangay Code of the Philippines".

Barangay anim 4500.gif
A Barangay Clearance is NEEDED in order to get a Business License.
So why is the barangay name not in most business addresses?
Ask your Barangay Captain/Chairman to create a Resolution to make it mandatory to put the barangay name in all Business addresses.
Every Government Unit in the Philippines is within a Barangay. The municipal hall, city hall, the provincial capitol building, and even the Malacañang Palace where the president resides is within a Barangay.

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 or any infrastructure need to be built, improved or repaired, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and present it to 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."

Each city or municipality is represented by the "barangay association or federation". The elected president of the Association of Barangay Council and the President of Kabataan (SK) association each have a seat in the City/Municipality council. Their powers are the same and equal to the elected city/municipality councilors. They are there to help lobby the demands of the barangays. They are not there just to collect a big salary and rub elbows with the regular elected city/municipality council, but to also represent the needs of the barangays.
The duties of the barangay officials are specifically written in Chapter III(Punong Barangay) and Chapter IV (The Sangguniang Barangay). Read it..

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, the "Sangguniang Panlungsod" does not have the power to remove or suspend any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Elected public officials can't be suspended by the DILG or the office of the president unless an official complaint has been filed, there must be proof and there must be due process. Republic Act 7160 chapter 4, Section 60. Information is power. Be informed. Do not be intimidated by the president, senator, congressman, governor, mayor, vice-mayor, or councilors. Do your job.

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.

If the power lines are sagging, don't go to the power company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the power company.
If the water lines are busted, don't wait for the water company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the water company.
If the potholes in the road are not fixed, don't wait for the The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the DPWH.
Are you beginning to get the point?

Cleaning the shorelines, drainage systems, streets, rivers, and parks within your barangay is YOUR responsibility. You are accountable for this. It is not the responsibility of the City/Municipality officials. The citizens and officials of the barangay are responsible. Stop blaming others.

  • 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.
  • The bureau of internal revenue is in cahoots to subdue the barangays, municipalities and provinces. They call the rightful shares to the taxes collected as "Internal Revenue Allotment Dependency". It is not a dependency. It is the lawful and rightful share of the LGU as specified in "TITLE III, SHARES OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS IN THE PROCEEDS OF NATIONAL TAXES, CHAPTER I, Allotment of Internal Revenue Taxes, Section 284."
  • "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.
  • DURING ELECTIONS: Where do City and Municipality politicians go to campaign? They seek the support of the Barangay officials. They plead to the barangay folks for the votes. Even the candidate for president. But after the election they ignore you. Do not ever forget the power of the barangay.

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

  • Absolutely NO need for FEDERALISM. It is a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State where the religion of Islam is financed by the Philippine government. Bangsamoro will be a HOMELAND not for all Filipinos but for only the Muslim Filipinos. It violates the constitution's "separation of church and state". 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.

Natural Resources of Daet, Camarines Norte, 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.

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.
