One love, one heart
Let's get together and feel all right
Hear the children crying (One love)
Hear the children crying (One heart)
Sayin', "Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right."
Sayin', "Let's get together and feel all right."
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One love)
There is one question I'd really love to ask (One heart)
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own?
Believe me

One love, one heart
Let's get together and feel all right
As it was in the beginning (One love)
So shall it be in the end (One heart)
Alright, "Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right."
"Let's get together and feel all right."

I have to ask if this was a Republican political act since Colleen Meyer is being challenged by a capable Democratic candidate? An opportunity for Colleen to come to the rescue? The timing is so suspicious!
The democrats have been and continue to rip off the Hawaiians ever since they took control of the legislature. Good for them if they think "business as usual" will get them more votes that Colleen Meyer. She stepped in at the right time, I'll vote for her.

<quoted text> I stand by my statement that "Evicting the Kanaka Maoli of Kahana Valley is a Miscarriage of Justice." Evict Lingle not the Kanaka Maoli of Kahana Valley. Evict Bennent not the Kanaka Maoli of Kahana Valley. Are you listening?
...and Inouye, Hirono, Abercrombie, Akaka, etc.

Kahana Valley never has belonged the people who were living there. If you want to OWN something, you have to go through the same channels as everyone else. Prove you own it, or go get a job and buy your own spot. All those years squatting for free and making a mess of the place, and they have the nerve to complain about their rights.
FYI...since you dont know squat...we are not squatters, we do not live here for free, we all have jobs, and we are the people who clean the Kahana Valley Park that the public is allowed to use because the state says,"they dont have the employees or money to clean it"...we also pay for land taxes, each family owns their house...so check yourself and know your facts before you flap your lips...and by the way, the state decided to just take over all of Kahana because they said they xould after a tidal wave and their findings about the water resevior in our valley, which you probably get your water from, so in other words, the took the land from the people AS THEY ALWAYS DO!!!

All this complexity ..... here's a simple truth.
Many local folks live and pay rent in the traditional rental market on the windward side for their entire lives, the state never steps in and complicates their life or has tried to evict them. So I ask ... what makes these folks in Kahana so special? Do they really deserve to be there when so many of their family, friends and relatives choose to go with the flow and not live in complexity?
Plenty of old time locals living in Hawaii and not being involved in a wee wee match with the state.
This entitlement thing is so old ....

I suspect they are in someone's way, IE: DEVELOPMENT
Maybe Trump, Oprah, or Stallone want to build a house or something and don't want commoners near their new estate. Nevertheless, those people don't hold a deed to the property so they have no real argument.
