If only we had a Governor, if only we had politicians who could count to ten without taking their shoes and socks off...if only we had people who truly gave a shît. Most problems in Hawaii can be distilled down to ignorance and attitudes, selfishness and prejudice.

Jeezus...I remember when you had to have 20% down and they'd even come
to your work place to see if you had a job...they also checked the last two
years of your income taxes. What happened?

The problem is not with the Gov or politicians (except for Crosier). It is with the attitude of those on Kauai who fought opportunities like the Hawaii Superferry!!!!

Jeezus Christ you imbeciles...no one was riding or going to ride the
SuperFerry...the owners were idiots to think that anyone would spend three times what a 25 minute airplane ride would cost to vomit for three hours.
Are you all lunatics?

DEAR ALICE:
You say that Kaua'i has no viable economy? What kind of viable economy does O'ahu have? Hawai'i's economy is driven by tourism and federal funds via Uncle Luau (Sen. Inouye) who brings the bacon home. What happens when he leaves office. We're screwed. Soon only affluent baby boomer
retirees and trust fund babies will live in Hawai'i...serviced by people who
live below the poverty line. Everyone else will have moved to the mainland
or New Caledonia.

Obviously you don't need to travel interisland too much. Airport security, baggage charges, car rental, etc... it all adds up.

So yes, for those who actually travel, we were the lunatics.(not limp wristed retirees who moved to HI)

Take your Superferry and go back to Alabama John F. Lehman fanboy.

It FAILED all by itself, even with pre-emptive bailouts and rule tampering by Lingle.

Kaui is still the State in case you haven't noticed, and the State consists of the People of the State, not some individual with a profit motive, or politacal points making, or more giveaways to the Military Industrial Complex, with a thin overlay of civil benefit.

We've had enough! Follow the rules. Don't rewrite the Rules. Outline the Business Plan, Don't make it up as you go along.

Don't give handouts to Military Industrial Complex Corporateers. They can afford it all on their own.

The people on Kauai stood for all of us on every Island that saw through the sham.

Before you try and go back to the Superferry, you might want to focus on your next door neighbor, and see how well they are doing before you lament your masters in the Corporate world.

Does this also include Mufi "Choo-Choo" Hanneman, the HGEA, and the Honolulu City Council? Just wondering.....
