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 Samar, Philippines: Prior to the approval of Republic Act No. 4221 on June 19, 1965, Samar province comprised the whole island of Samar. Under this act, the western portion was created as a separate province named Western Samar. A subsequent legislation (Republic Act No. 5650) however, changed the name of the province of Samar on June 21, 1969.

The Jesuit missionaries founded Samar in 1596. They introduced the Roman Catholic faith to the people of Samar. When the Jesuits left Samar in 1768, the Spanish Franciscans took over the administration.

The former names given to Samar were Zamal, Ibabao, Achan and Tandaya. Legend stated that when the Spaniards first set foot in Homonhon, they met a wounded native from whom they asked the name of the place. The wounded man did not understand Spanish. He thought they were asking what happened to him and he replied "samad" meaning wound in the local dialect. So, the navigators adopted the name for the island with a slight alteration of the last letter, from Samad to Samar.

During the early days of Spanish occupation in the Philippines, Samar was under the jurisdiction of Cebu. Later, it was declared a separate province, but in 1735, Samar and Leyte were united into one province with Carigara, in Leyte, as the capital. The union, however, did not prove satisfactory. So, in 1968, Samar has emerged as an independent political unit with Catbalogan as its capital.

On January 1900, the Americans captured the town of Catbalogan. Civil governments were established on June 17, 1902 and Julio Llorente was appointed as the first governor of Samar.

During the administration of Governor Baltazar Avelino, Samar was converted into a first class "A" province. Calbayog City became a chartered city on July 16 by virtue of Republic Act no. 328.

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.

Army condemns use of land mines

by (PIA8 Samar with LTC. Alvin Lagamon)

CATBALOGAN CITY, Samar, May 11 (PIA) -- The Eighth Infantry Division (8th ID) is calling on the public to join them in condemning the continued use of landmines by the New People’s Army (NPA).

BGen. Gerardo T. Layug, commanding general of the 8th ID of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, said the use of landmines is a violation of Republic Act 9851 (Crime Against International Law).

This is also a clear violation of the paragraph 15, article II of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHIHL). It is prohibited because such attack will cause incidental loss of life or injury to civilians.

“I call on everyone to condemn this senseless act of violence against our troops and our people,” Layug said.

On December 14, 2010, local NPAs launched a landmine attack at the vicinity of Barangay Sta. Fe and Barangay Perez, Catubig, Northern Samar against the elements of 63rd Infantry Battalion (63rd IB) which resulted to the death of military troops and a nine-year-old boy.

Recently, the NPA have also used landmines against government troops in Barangay Antipolo, Llorente, Eastern Samar and Barangay Nago-Ocan, Catubig, Northern Samar.

In other areas, the rebels also employed landmines during an attack against the operating elements of the 71st Infantry Battalion (71st IB) at Sitio Linaw, Brgy Panamin, Mabini town, Compostella Valley on April 28, 2012, killing a soldier and wounding seven civilians. A similar incident also happened on February 27, 2012 in another undisclosed area. Early this year an elderly woman died during a landmine explosion in CARAGA region and the previous year another civilian was killed due to a landmine explosion at Maco, Compostella Valley.

It may also be recalled that in the early morning of March 5, 2012, the 8th ID troops seized forty-four (44) improvised landmines and production paraphernalia in an NPA explosive factory in the hinterlands of the Municipality of Paranas, Samar.

“All of these only prove the NPA’s tenacity to use landmines in complete disregard of the safety of the innocent civilians. The Human Rights Office is already preparing to file criminal charges against the NPA rebels for these blatant violations of IHL provisions,” according to a statement from the 8th ID in a press release.
