We're in better financial shape than I thought. If we can get more of our kids into college and training schools, it will be even better.

94 guys for every 100 women in Kaneohe? Looks like I'd better start dressing up fancy when I go to L&L.

Our dollar is worth less than in 2000. See Below:

"The updated total bailout commitments add up to over $8 trillion now. This translates into a monetary base increase of 75 percent over the last two months. This money does not come from some rainy day fund tucked away in the budget somewhere it is created from thin air, and devalues every dollar in circulation. Dumping money on an economy, as they have been doing, is not the same as dumping wealth. In fact, it has quite the opposite effect."

Obviously the census takers forgot to include the people of Ewa when the subject was about how long does it take to drive to work

The census also does not take into consideration the increase in shipping and energy costs.

I think the people doing this survey was either drunk or high on drugs! They have not taken into consideration that Hawaii residents pay the nations highest cost for electricity, gasoline, DOE education, State taxes on everything, property taxes, more taxes to support social programs.

87 percent graduation rate in which most read at the 8 grade level with Math scores below the national level. In fact DOE graduates rank at the bottom 45 out of 50 states!
