American expat praises Duterte’s anti-tambay drive: “Duterte is making the Philippines better than many US cities”

Is Duterte making the Philippines better than the USA? Former talent manager of Star Wars artists Steve Rogers says so in a Facebook post.

Rogers posted the long commentary on social media in response to the backlash of two controversial issues hounding Duterte and his administration – crackdown of “tambays” and the verbal war with church leaders.


In the Facebook post, Rogers remarked that each Filipino and all people around the world should be grateful for President Duterte for cracking his whip against the “tambays” thus making the Philippines streets safer.

With safer streets, Rogers said the Philippines can expect more tourists coming in to the country.

What President Duterte is doing, Rogers claimed is “making the Philippines better than many U.S. cities.”

Meanwhile, Rogers offered a word of advice to “tambays” – get a life, get a job by going to job fairs, and go home before curfew hours (10 PM) etc.

Lastly, Rogers said Filipinos need a “hard dose of discipline”. If there is anything that destroys a family, it’s a drunkard and an addict within the family.

The best quote that Rogers left for the Filipino public to reflect is to, “stop adding to the problems of the Philippines and start being the positive change.”

Each Filipino and all people around the world should be greatful for President Duterte. With the Anti-Tambay situation the streets of the Philippines are becoming even more safe. This, brings in more foreign tourism to the Philippines as tambays are required to simply show respect to their fellow Filipinos, tourists, rid the streets of drug pushers and addicts that collect in and around the streets including elsewhere.

What Duterte is doing is better than many U.S. cities. Thousands of tambays have been arrested in Manila alone but Duterte did not order for any arrests. Only those who are violators. Mistakes can also be made and can also be cleared up. Some people say well, tambays sit at our Sari-Sari stores to buy cigarettes, alcohol, snacks and that brings in business. However as everyone knows these stores only profit one – two Pesos from each product sold on the average.

But what about the Sari-Sari store owners who usually have family members living in that house that have a job that need good sleep for the following days work? They can not get it with a group of drunks outside. What about the senior citizens who own these businesses that have younger family OFW members sending them funds to support these stores? These senior citizens need sleep. Also, they can have medical problems and can not get up every two minutes to make a one-two sale. Then, let’s not forget the very young children who help their grandparents with sales and need sleep to go to school. They are the future of the Philippines. It’s they who are seeing this happen and want no part if it. They want what Duterte is working on daily, a first world Philippines.

For those who are guilty of this here’s how you can help yourselves, others, your country and even when your a President Duterte supporter or not. Get a job. Attend a job fair. Observe silence, go in your home at the 10:00p.m. curfew and watch T.V. play a game, make sure your children have what they need for school the next day. Do this and your wife will not come looking for you to bring you home late at night putting themselves in danger. We all know there are still some drug pushers and addicts out late so why on earth would anyone (unless it’s something such as a medical emergency) subject their families to that. The job of a husband and wife are to be rocks for each other to lean on for support, their parents plus children. It was not to have OFW family members send money so that some can sit around all day and night drinking and taking drugs.

Above all that will help the most out of this and all problems will be for all to use a hard dose of discipline in every life event. If there’s anything that will bring a family down like a ton of bricks it’s a drunk and a drug addict within a family. Stop adding to the problems of the Philippines and start being the positive change. Your family, children, grandchildren will love you for it. To not do so means that you only have yourself to blame. Nothing wrong at all with having a drink from time to time in a responsible, respectful, disciplined manner after a hard days or weeks work. But the time has come to get with the program. Why am I so firm on this subject. Because it was on one Christmas that a group of drug addicts/pushers and drunks surrounded the front of my families home and almost murdered us.
