Bottom line is that the Lingle administration f*cked up by BREAKING THE LAW in the first place. Everything that follows derives from that.

I don't think so. It had to be a concerted effort of both the legislative and executive branches. Only the judicial made the right call.

Well you certainly are whats wrong with America. Posting your beliefs on just about everything that comes off your pointed head. From Obamas BC,furlough fridays, Hawaii politics,and just about anything that has NOTHING to do with you. Is there REALLY anything that you think you are not a expert on that we haven't read about yet? "Of course not" because you are the type of person that sees nothing but WRONG in everything. You remind me of Infidel another with the same type of personality. You two would make great company until a disagreement happens then its verbal assaults, and probably physical assaults.

A new study by Pew Research says that 76 percent of Americans do not trust the federal government, at least some of the time. Also, just 25 percent of Americans think Congress is doing a good job.

Folks are worried about their wallets, and they don't think the feds are responding very well. Thus, they don't trust the federal government.

When President Obama was elected 18 months ago, there was big time hope in the air. In fact, the president ran on hope and change, and many Americans were very optimistic that good times would be here again.

It hasn't happened. And there is anger in the air.

Yes, there has been change. We now have record spending and a new tone of humility overseas. Also, whenever you build up someone's hopes and don't come through, you become suspect.

President Obama's charisma energized many Americans, and now they are disappointed with reality. Therefore, a combination of those who didn't like Mr. Obama from the jump, and disillusionment because things have not gotten better, is driving all the negativity towards the federal government.

It is true that Congress is doing a terrible job. The health care bill was a colossal mess, and partisan bickering is out control. Both parties are at fault. The Republicans are undermining President Obama. The Democrats simply don't seem to care if the country goes bankrupt. They continue to spend irresponsibly, to load up bills with pork, and to basically thumb their noses at fiscal reality. That's not just incompetent, that's dangerous.

So once again, the American people are the ones with the common sense. They know the feds are not doing the job.

Infidel, you might want to check out the Constitutionalists.....Interes ting, thought-provoking information.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

The so-called "news" media continue to aggressively push a socialist agenda, and it's threatening the very foundation of our nation.

FYI:

1. Exxon Mobil made billions in profits, and yet paid not one dime in federal income taxes in 2009.

2. The 2005 energy bill had a little known provision, commonly called the Halliburton Loophole, which exempted natural gas drilling from the Clean Water Act. The result? Water so contaminated that you can light it on fire.

3. Massey Energy was cited more than 2400 times for safety violations in its mines, but chose not to fix potentially lethal problems because low penalties meant it was cheaper to simply keep paying the fines. This spring, 29 miners were killed in an underground explosion at a Massey mine in West Virginia.

4. Michael Taylor was the FDA official who approved the use of Monsanto's Bovine Growth Hormone in dairy cows (even though it's banned in most countries and linked to cancer). After approving it, he left the FDA—to work for Monsanto. Until last year, when he moved back to the government—as President Obama's "Food Safety Czar." No joke.

5. Internal Toyota documents outline how the company was successful in limiting regulators actions in the recalls last year—saving hundreds of millions while the death toll continued to climb.

6. GE and its lobbyists—including 33 former government employees—have successfully lobbied Congress to override Defense Department requests to cancel a GE contract to work on a new engine for the Joint Strike Fighter jet. GE will need $2.9 billion to finish the project.

7. Top executives at 9 top banks including Citibank, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley paid themselves over $20 billion dollars in bonuses just weeks after taxpayers bailed them out to the tune of 700 billion dollars.

8. During the waning days of the Bush administration, officials responded to a long-term lobbying campain by pre-empting product liability lawsuits for dozens of whole industries. They bypassed Congress entirely and rewrote rules ranging from seatbelt manufacturing regulations to prescription drug safety.

9. Sunscreen manufacturers including Johnson & Johnson and Schering-Plough, in the interest of profits, are opposing an FDA proposal requiring full reporting on sunscreen labels. The New York Times just confirmed that current SPF ratings don't even measure sun rays that cause cancer.

10. BP—a company with a record of 760 drilling safety and environmental violations—was granted safety waivers in order to operate the deepwater drilling rig that ultimately created the worst environmental disaster in US history.
