Try getting the hate out of your heart and mind, eh? Your comments are NOT pono and, unfortunately, show ZERO Aloha.
Aloha works both ways. If you show no Aloha, you receive no Aloha. Forcing yourself against anothers wishes is contrary to the spirit of Aloha. If someone dosen't want you to bring your dirty slippers into their home and be vocal about it, you don't ask him where his aloha is! It is not conducive to a good relationship. Being pono and having aloha means showing respect to anothers sentiment on an issue.

To "Stick to the Subject", you're Da Best! Your positive thoughts and suggestions are what everyone should be joining in. Too bad posts from Kapaa and others are so negative that they provoke hostility and does nothing for the Aloha spirit in Hawaii.

The tone taken by a few is unfortunate and childish . I really hope my inlaws can visit their grandchildren in Kapaa and Lahaina without feeling threatened . It is against the law to threaten someone over a phone line(Aggravated assault in the second degree)penal code240.30(1) not to mention ethnic intimidation (Hate crimes). Unfortunately , some are willing to bring it to the next level .

Convenient how those on other islands think they have right to prevent fellow citizens from visiting. So should people in small mainland towns just close the roads to keep out city folk on weekends? Greedy how those in paradise want to keep others out. I am SOOOOOO glad to see that the majority in this case defeated the greedy, whiny, hypocritical minority. Hawaii environmental groups just cut their donating base in a huge way for many years to come.
Well said.

In yesterday's debate, your own elected representatives stated on record that their constitutents wanted the ferry.

6 out of the 9 house members from Maui & Kauai voted yes.

From the official House majority blog:
http://hawaiihouseblog.blogspot.com/

"Rep. Kyle Yamashita (Upcountry Maui) voted for the bill. He said the majority of people in his district favor the Superferry, but to the person, they were concerned about the invasive species issue."

"Rep. Roland Sagum (Waimea, Kauai) voted up on the bill on behalf of the overwhelming majority of residents in his district who favor the Superferry."

From todays Advertiser:

"State Rep. Joseph Souki, D-8th (Wailuku, Waihe'e, Waiehu), said as an island state, water and air travel are the only ways to connect people and move goods. He said ferries are common travel options worldwide and asked why Hawai'i should be different"

State Rep. Joe Bertram III, D-11th (Makena, Wailea, Kihei), said ....."I ask for my friends on Maui to please understand why I'm doing this," said Bertram, who voted "yes" and sees the ferry as an alternative mode of transportation.

I would just like to express my opionion and that I'm glad the Super Ferry can resume service for
us local people. This is a good
thing that has happened to the people of Hawaii and beleive me will bring in revenues for Kauai and Maui.

I would also like to thank the governer who got involved and all
the legislators who passed the law
for our Super Ferry Service.

Aloha,

To those locals on Kauai, do you know what you're protesting? Do you know what the true meaning of your protest is? I really don't think so. I have family on Kauai, My roots are from Kauai, I know my family is for progress. I know that the economy is bad and needs some boost. Maybe, if you sit back, relax and think then maybe you'll see why the HSF is important.

Long live Coco Palms, at the rate things are going there, it will never rise from the dead.

I hope you understand what I meant from Long Live Coco Palms. If you don't, then you really don't realize how bad your economy is there!

Sad day for Hawaii wrote:
We are now the laughing stock of the country. They are comparing us to a Banana Republic. You Oahu people think you're going to jump in your car and have easy, traffic-free driving when you get here, but you're mistaken, cuz we have twice the population, but the same tiny roads we had in 1970. Don't expect us to greet you with open arms either, because this has been shoved down our throats despite our best grassroots efforts to warn you of the environmental consequences that will affect you as well as the rest of the state.
here we go again with the 'oahu people' comments... in case you had not read the article or comprehend what was read...(5) of the (11) no votes were neighbor island representatives which would leave (6) oahu/other "no" votes... what you are also neglecting to mention is the fact that many of the neighbor island reps voted in support. this would suggest that the residents and businesses in their respective areas are too in support. it's never an issue of oahu vs the neighbor islands, maybe to some of you crazies it is?!
as for being welcomed w/ open arms and wanting to experience a "traffic-free" environment, i say be mindful of your idle threats because while you may feel honorable or mighty while at your keyboard you in all certainty will face travelers who dont take lightly to idle threats and who need not a keyboard to warn of the possibilities. delusional people would believe that there would be any area here in hawaii on any island that would be "traffic-free." your delusions doesnt warrant the slightest of responses.
besides, nothing was shoved down your throats... ride or dont... thats your decision. but prevent people from their right or threaten them in some shape... the sf operations would be the least of your worries.

Excellent. I am now going to stop paying taxes and supporting this government in every way. If the government comes knocking, I'll just file a lawsuit and have the laws changed to suit me personally.

For ANYBODY who thinks this is over and is a victory for SF, think again. Your Oahu burnouts can try all you want to come over here to paradise, but we'll stop you any way we can.

what you failed to copy+paste is the opening statement which makes reference to "oahu people." if that isnt plain out finger pointing, then what tell me is?
