My family lives on Kauai and WE want the superferry. It will help us a great deal. Its the outsiders that is making all this trouble for US kamaaina's . Shame on them. Hope they get out of town for us old time residents. They are trying to corrupt our young children, by attempting to brainwash them into turning into trouble makers.

Get the outsiders out of Kauai. They do NOT speak for us .

When you elect Democrats, you attract San Fran types and before you know it they run your life. Just say NO to the red diaper doper babies!

May all you Superferry lovers be the first to have sleepless nights and see your property values drop when we frogs hop out of the trunks of Big Island cars and take up residence around your house.

How many businesses got the kind of assistance ($40 million plus in improvements, waived EA, etc) that the Hawaii Superferry did from the state government?

Sorry, superferry does not go to the big Island at the moment. Keep your nose out of our business and you won't embarrass yourself again

Let the boat run to Kauai. The channel between Oahu and Kauai has such smooth water. Just like the commercials.

1000 Friends of Kauai consist of only 10 people. Their complaint is so stupid that it doesn't deserve to be mentioned in print. If their complaints on environmental issues apply to the Young brothers barges & cruise ships, then,OK to complain about the Super Ferry. If not, go find something else to do.

Circumvented our laws? Oh yeah, lets see the enviromental impact studies for Matson the containers, cruise ships and dinner sails. Oh Yeah, they don't have to, Kauai would starve otherwise. Howzabout we stop "superferrying" Oahu tax dollars to support the welfare isles and you pay your own bills?

The DOT required Environmental Assessments for harbor improvements for cruise and container ships. The DOT exempted the harbor improvements for the Superferry and the Hawaii Supreme Court ruled that the DOT circumvented the law by granting the exemption. The Lingle administration has been lying about the whole fiasco. Don't believe them.

How much airline money went into your "local protest"? How much car rental? Don't want Oahu's "masses" on YOUR island? Feed your own kids, parasites.
