Isle housing bottom seen - Business

Full story: Honolulu Star-Bulletin

The worst could be over for Oahu's slumping housing market even though slower conditions are expected to persist until there is better economic news in the state.

Explanation:
SOLAR ~ The number of solar power systems across the island state has doubled every year since 2007, with nearly 20,000 units installed.
GUNS ~ As of Oct. 31, the number of guns sold was just under 21,000, on pace to surpass the record 23,400 sold in 2011.
There are a LOT of solar companies these days, the competition is fierce. Yet, you don't see prices dropping a penny. The only price competition you can find is if you opt for the Chinese-made panels. Lolo, I'm gonna purhase with twelve more panels this year IF Abercrombie holds of on his "Interconnectivity" fee of 20K. Heco and the guv are at war with the public, NO-ONE in power wants people to go solar.

Gun sales make the NRA very proud to increase fund raising for their favorite right wing causes. Unfortunately for the wing-nuts out there, Hawaii will never be a "Red State."

Guns selling at record pace on Oahu

HONOLULU (AP)- Honolulu Police statistics suggest gun sales on Oahu could set a record this year.
As of Oct. 31, the number of guns sold was just under 21,000, on pace to surpass the record 23,400 sold in 2011.
Gun and gun store owners told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser they believe anticipation of President Barack Obama's re-election has led to a spike in the sale of firearms on the island.
Young Guns owner Dale Hayama tells the paper he's seen business grow since Obama was first elected in 2008. He says he saw a 30 to 40% surge in sales after Obama won a second 4-year term earlier this month.
Some fear the potential for stricter gun laws in an Obama administration while others suspect CRIME WILL INCREASE WITH THE ROAWCH BOY IN OFFICE.

Another HAWAII TAX. How can it be that this state is broke:

Paid by real estate seller:

Ten cents per $100 property valued at less than $600,000.

Gradually increasing:

Fifty cents per property valued of at least $2,000,000 less than $6,000,000.

Up to:

One hundred cents per $100 per property value of at least $10,000,000.

HECO will ALWAYS find a way to blame the customer, and the politicians to ensure laws are passed to punish people. The only way around it under the current situation is to completely disconnect from HECO and charge your own battery bank, buy as soon as you do it, your home will be condemned. HECO and politicians = dirty coxsuckers.

WND EXCLUSIVE
Decisive action against Obama's left-wing 'trolls'
Pajama bandits seek to stifle thought, discredit right
Published: 7 hours ago

NEW YORK – WND Internet forum moderators have conducted extensive studies of leftist, pro-Obama “trolls” who post misinformation.

In the process, the moderators have blocked from WND forums participants who post abusive language aimed at angering or otherwise insulting forum members, WND authors, management and staff.

Trolls appear to perform a “disinformation” function typical of counter-intelligence efforts by intelligence agencies to confuse political enemies and refute or deflect opposing political views that are less susceptible to refutation by more traditional methods of debate and argumentation.

Typically, trolls operating on WND forums attempt to defend Obama by posting specious and diversionary arguments with the goal of changing the subject and obscuring topics that could damage Obama, such as his birth records, life narrative, political history and policy preferences, including his current positions as president.

Particularly offensive is the proclivity of trolls to use obscene or blasphemous language mixed with personal invective.

Repeat offenders

Trolls operate on WND forums under various identities, often using the same IP address but with different usernames and email addresses.

Professional trolls like pau and meezer:

WND moderators have developed criteria for helping to identify a professional troll:

The person’s posts are usually short and snarky, with reasonably correct spelling, grammar and punctuation, suggesting both intelligence and education.

The posts are on the edge of acceptability, with little or no profanity or vulgar language that would get the post flagged immediately.

The person has a high ratio of posts to the number of days on the site, suggesting he’s posting comments nearly full time and is getting paid to troll.

The person posts politely on progressive websites but nastily on conservative websites, using the same username and IP address.

The person’s posts are consistently belittling, rather than intelligent objections and points.

The person’s posts address a broad spectrum of topics rather than focusing on one or two subjects of particular interest. The consistency is in the support of leftist policies and positions taken by the Obama administration.

Does the wing-nut site worldnutsdaily offer recipes for crow? I know this is the season for the bird, Tom Turkey, but it seems that crow is being offered at many places of residence living in denial.

Just as predicted and right on schedule.

If a prospective home buyer cannot afford a basic conveyance tax, then they ought to not be thinking about home ownership. Home ownership is not a [right]. It's a privilege. A privilege that is [earned] in the majority of instances.

Lipstick for a pig??
More wasted taxpayer $$$.

$5M in rail funds will buy artwork for transit depots
By Kevin Dayton / kdayton@staradvertiser.com

~~
The Honolulu rail project will make about $5 million available to buy works of art to dress up the system's 21 train stations, and the city expects to invite artists from across the nation to compete for a chance to win commissions.

The proposed Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation budget for fiscal year 2014 includes $1.975 million in the latest dollop of funding for the local Art in Transit program, money that is expected to cover the cost of contracts with about 10 artists. Login for more...
