  1. That’s not quite good enough. Prop up a hog raising industry for the farmers and individual hog raisers through a government assisted/funded cooperative! It is known that the mayor’s family owns a pig farm and this, by rights and by sense of decency, purports ‘conflict of interest’. While it is a private business in existence prior to election into public office, common decency dictates that the industry is open to all – more so to the farmers and individuals who do not have other ways of earning a living. Bar that by monopoly or other forms of industry control and that amounts to divesting the poor of their right to earn a living.

  5. Since toll fee applies only to live hogs entering the province, then pork can come in frozen or it can be taken for marketing in Bangued in cut-up pieces already. It will be an added process for pork marketers to apply if they are to bring the goods into the province without having to pay toll fee. Either way though, this will impact on change of pricing for pork. This can be turned around into an advantage for the majority of the people in Abra, however. And it is for them to raise their own hogs using the old style of feeding pigs with “binugbog” instead of the commercial feeds which contain questionable chemicals and elements (i.e. hormones, steroids, anti-biotics which are banned in other countries because they have detrimental effects to humans, but are freely on the loose and are widely used in the Philippines).

    The imposition of toll fee for hogs is certainly seen for its obvious intent: deterrent against competition for existing piggery business in the province. Interestingly, it is allegedly a business engaged-in by the Bangued mayor’s family in Lusuac. The said executive order intends to ensure that the Abrenian hog-raisers will monopolise the Abrenian market for pork. They can then do what they please with prices. On the other hand, this may not have a great impact on peoples’ lives. If this price rise will in turn validate people’s changing their diet (in which they exclude pork because of elevated pork prices) then this is not altogether bad considering the health risks associated with pork from hogs raised by commercial pig farmers. Such health risks are attributed to commercial hog feeds. Price hike in pork may also compel households, farmers and individual entrepreneurs to raise their own hogs using the old method. The old method would be the cheaper alternative but it will be all the better from health-safety perspective.

    • That’s right! Baboy has a high risk to your health. You can’t feel it yet while you’re still young. But if you reached around 50 and above, that’s when you suffer the “ganacity” of eating baboy, baka, and fish without scales. These forbidden food were written in the Bible that makes me wonder why the Muslim, INK, and other smart healthy people are not eating it. They just stick to vegetable, fish, chicken, and other non-fatty or oily food. Why not just raising kalding instead?

  10. In other social communities with level sense of decency, as in advanced western societies, a government official who uses his powers or position to impose directives that directly impact on his personal interest ( in this case, his entrepreneural business) is wrongfully acting for his personal interest. This presents a grey area in governance which emerges as a crack between applied laws and ethical principles. In western societies ethical principles remain the stronghold for laws. Here, a government official in authority will not be seen making or pushing for laws that will directly benefit a business he is known to own. It’s just not on.

    • Right on, Madam Norma. The imposition of the toll fee has CONFLICT OF INTEREST written all over it. This comes as no surprise. Just how low can people get? It is not unlike taking even the crumbs from the hungry. I don’t really know just how much more people can take. Surely, there must be an end to this madness.

  11. Apo abreno . . . deta kunkunayo nga conflict of interest ket amin nga politikotayo nga agdama ti Abra ket dida maawatan. Basta ti nalawag diay utekda ket detoy . . . . amin nga masiripda nga pagkuartaan ket aramidenda . . . ta kas kuna ti mesa nga politico idi kanyak ket – – – What the heck are we in power for!? I tell you, there will never be an end to this (madness). No maawatam ti word nga TIMMOLANG; timmolangen deta nga kinadakes ti politikotayo . . . They say change is the only permanent thing in this world . . . . Things keep changing and change never ends. EXCEPTION – politicians of Abra. They change their cars, shirts, and wives/husbands . . . but not their evil purpose in running for political posts. KUARTA!

  12. Perhaps the leaders and officials can benefit from a ‘no-nonsense’ leadership and values training from respectable humanitarian speakers and consultants with high sense of scruples? Various international NGOS might be able to help elevate the sense of personhood of officials and leaders in the Philippines. Perhaps since Abra holds the honor of being the first province in the Philippines by alphabetical order of listing, it can take a lead on this?… Just musing. But hey, if nothing from known tradition or solutions works to change people’s attitudes that’s short of ‘cultural cleansing’ (like the concept of Madagascar’s ‘sacrificed generation’ or the ‘sacrificed generation’ under Mao ) then – ‘think outside of the square’. Times have changed and even learning concepts and methodologies have changed. Today, coping with life entails unlearning what has been learned of old and relearning life skills.

  13. I agree on this eo but it should not be for the control of hogs entering bangued but also for all livestocks entering the province for commercial consumption. If you go to bangued public market. There you don’t know what you are buying because either “takong” or “ubing” a baboy these partidor are selling with the same price. For me, bangued lgu and for the rest of abra, there must be control of quality and cost of commodoties that these vendors are selling for public consumptions. Thank you.

  14. if the primary reason indeed is to screen all kinds of meat coming in for the purpose of making sure nga haan nga health risk dagitoy ket napintas la unay but on the other hand if it is to protect a business interest then it is wrong. ta iti long term effect na ket haan nga nasayaat. we know the effects of business monopoly. nakarkaro nga agrigat iti kaaduan. just wondering, what happened to the Abra Hog raisers Association? Napintas kuma daytoy tapno makita nga nalaeng iti kasapulan dagiti mannalon nga padak maipanggep kadagiti aywan nga baboy. i remember attending one meeting of this assn but it was way way back ket haanen nga naulit. nagpintas nagpapatangan ngem pulos met iti naimplementar. sayang dagiti napipintas nga ideas. kakabsat ammo tayo iti rigat ken gastos iti agtaraken iti baboy. without proper implementing rules and guidelines awan iti papanan na nga nasayaat daytoy nga panagnegosyo ditoy abra ta awan met iti husto nga panagpresyo no agalako ka ket iti apektado dagitoy padak nga babassit nga mannalon. in the long run iti agsurvive ket dagitoy dadakkel nga piggeries ket sinno iti akinkukua kadagitoy? ammo tay metten dagiti politicos nga adu kuarta na nga pangkapital da ket anian ton ngay mapasamak? isudan makakaamo mangidiktar iti presyo nga kaykayat da ket sitay manen nga babassit iti kakaasi!

    • Oh yes, PAGALSEM, we all have to suffer because many of our people sold their votes. This is the price we must now pay even if we did not vote in the May elections. What our people need is relief, not an added onus. The municipal treasurer spoke at great length to explain the legality of their decision. But not all things that are legal are moral. There is only one way to spell this act – O-P-P-R-E-S-S-I-V-E. This will not really affect the businessmen because they will simply pass on the added expense to the consumer. The biggest losers here are our people who will have to pay more for the commodities that they need. There is one nagging question that cries out for an answer – will this additional assessment be implemented equally to all or will we again see a selective implementation? Mayor Dominic’s family is engaged in several businesses. It is against human nature for a leader to implement a rule that would affect his business negatively. Will Mayor Dominic and members of his family pay the additional assessment they would have other businessmen pay? It is both deplorable and lamentable that the government acts with great vigor in collecting taxes, but they will not exercise the same vigor in sending to jail those who steal the taxes that have already been collected. Just when will this madness stop?
