Letters to the Editor - Letters

A picture really does tell a thousand words. I didn't really understand why an elevated rail would work in Honolulu until I saw the photo of the Phoenix rail in last Sunday's paper. Full Story

Lt. E. Watada finally get's his release from the terrorist organization known as the US military.
Not only would I buy him dinner, but maybe a house. What he did was courageous. The two wars the US finds itself in, is because of horrific miscalulations by Bush & Co. Even if the attacks and bombing of Iraq were to take the 6 weeks that infantile Rumsfeld predicted, it would still be "illegal" and immoral. Going on 8 years...he was off that much? Idiots.
Complete, and total idiots.
God Bless Lt. Watada.

M. Rice - you deaf dumb and blind liberals will never face the truth. The United States of America challenges you to prove Glen Beck is wrong. You can't and you never will but don't worry we'll see you kicking and screaming all the way out the door. Yet, every news channel including the ones that suck up to Obama has already had many stories questioning Obama's actions like his transparency office and promise he will never have any lobbyist or pork barrel in his presidency. Well we know all this to be untruthful or as most people just simply call it "you lie". Thank God for liberals so they can make the rest of us look good. By the way I voted for Obama because I believed every word he said but now I know he is a liar and racist.

He must've woke you up when he rolled out of bed this morning. What else did you learn from him--you can be anything you want to be, like a coward.

Chrisy Kapua letters demonstrates how going to Phoenix, Arizona, you can come to Oahu and pretend you know all about the world.

Eh, Kapua, we no like and no can afford this monstrosity that is going to ruin the "aina."

You like rail so much, you like Phoenix too much: move to Phonenix!

Letter writer Rice is exactly right and your response proves how the GOP & their misguided supporters think:

People who think like Beck and yourself is that they always ASSUME they’re right and it’s up to others to prove them wrong.

When reading the comments to my "Letter to the Editor" concerning cutting back on the school year to save money I was shocked at the selfishness and hopelessness that I saw.

One person blamed people that had six children instead of just one. I don't even know how to respond to someone who thinks that they have a right to dictate how many children a family can have. Is this Communist China?

There were comments concerning the fact that no tax laws are ever repealed. Well that's because of the political apathy here. We control the government. We can hire and fire our government with the, "Will of the People."

I heard from people saying it is the families responsability to educate their children. Well if it is the families responsability why do we have schools at all?

The answer to that is that we hire experts for everything that is important. How many familes have people with graduate degrees in education?

How many families still have single earner households. I believe that I read that we have the highest cost of housing in the country. Doesn't that translate into we have the lowest adverage of single earner households.
The people have to remember that they are IN CHARGE! Excercise your will people!

It's not just the seventeen days recently cut back. There are the professional days taken off. There are the days studying for the No Child Left Behind test. There are the days when they take the No Child ... test.
Oh yeah, kids get sick, no school then.

If you go into classrooms in Hawaii you will see roofs that leak onto school desks. You will see text books that still have the Soviet Union in them. The Hawaiian Public School system is broken and it is because the public allow it to be so.

Most places when something is broken people fix it. Not here. Here there is political apathy all around.

Apperantly to only politcal activist are the people that think you should only have one child if you really have to have children.

Or they might just be the people that can afford to send their children to private school. Then who cares what happens in the public schools.

Many uniformed/ignorant people on here as usual. Watada = coward. His dad was a Vietnam coward and his son followed in his footsteps. I can't understand what these type of people think happens in the military...they are they to fight wars. And for all of you superclueless individuals that keep saying the war is illegal...get your facts straight. It was authorized by the U.S. Congress...hence it is legal. Hence you can't say you won't go because it's illegal.

You need to get a clue brother. The U.S military isn't a terrorist organization. You've obviously never served...probably on welfare and still has the nerve to complain about the government. Societal leech. As for being held...I think the coward Watada joined of his own free will. He got scared when he realized he had to actually go fight. It's understandable when his dad did the same thing in Vietnam.

The slanderous articles of the Star Bulletin makes me question its journalistic respectability. What would the newspaper have to gain by ruining the life of a teacher never convicted of any misconduct? I believe the first two words holds the clue to Star Bulletin's motive: Kamehameha Schools. The appearance of this attack is not on the teacher himself but the institution in which he works: Kamehameha Schools. As a graduate of Kamehameha schools and now an undergraduate of Yale University, I am appalled at the articles which appear constantly in the Star Bulletin and Honolulu Advertiser, which subtly and not so subtly attack Native Hawaiian foundations such as Kamehameha Schools. This gossip column proves that no true intellectual, whether White or Hawaiian or Asian or mixed heritage, should believe this BUSINESS, the Star Bulletin, is unbiased.

Aloha:

If you have ever seen Glen Beck on television, you will know that he is NOT a journalist. He is a rabble-rousing, radical, rightwing, racist, probably a Republican, and my guess is that even the Mormon Church is probably ashamed of his daily rant and the lies that he spreads in his attack on President Obama and our country.

I do applaud the fact that he has overcome drug and alcohol addiction, but it appears to have affect his brain.

He's a Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, or Rush Limbaugh "wannabe." And my advice is simple: If you are a patriotic American, you won't watch Fox cable.

James Rosen, your computer crash was caused by the entire island of Kaua'i all wishing at the same time to not have to hear from you again. Why don't you keep your thoughts in a diary so only you have to be subjected to them. We are sick of hearing about your mundane daily antics. Give us a break. I think your still mad because you lost the superferry battle.

Hey, you know what? Why don't you just go ahead move to Afghanistan or Iran or Iraq where their military protect their own people! Your "terrorist military" protects your right to be stupid and clueless.

It's about having more children than you can take care of properly and/or afford. If you can do both, fine. If you can't, then you shouldn't have so many children. Why should I be responsible or paying for other people's children?

The typical Lib attitude. Rather than welcome varying viewpoints and freedom of choice, it's all about silencing the opposition - or labeling people as "unpatriotic" if they dare exercise their freedom to watch or listen to whatever they want to.

No wonder Libs prefer the authoritarian regimes around the world to the US model of freedom and democracy. Libs hate America.
Yeah

lol! So you're saying you can accept any of Obama's proposals or what non-conservatives offer?

That would be interesting indeed.
