It's simple really, bad process, plus bad corporate and union deals, fed by taxpayer debts, followed by bad City and County administration, equals distrust and hatred of insider horse dealers who get rich of taxpayers and spend millions for off islanders who attempt to manipulate MSM and social media with propaganda and lies. Throw them all out, cancel the project and get a criminal prosecutor to retrieve our tax monies HOWEVER it has to be done.

Rail: nothing but an insider transit deal to sell out Ho'opili ag lands to a bunch of mainland and local developer trash for their personal profit, while paying off the administrators who were supposed to be protecting our island. Seize their businesses and jail the trash.

A multi-billion dollar taxpayer funded rail on a tiny little island that doesn't need it and no one is outraged? They get more outraged over UH football losses. lol

Actually no one's been outraged over UH losses since 2009, but rail still sucks.

Balls when will you repent and ask for forgiveness. Your hourglass has run out of Poki Bay sand.

When UH loses the fans quit going to the games by the thousands. One would think that when you guess or bs you would get it right some of the time. But no!!

This is probably the fastest start on any project on Oahu.

They just started the maintenance yard.

Trans. Dept. is so scared Cayetano will be elected and their pet money making project stopped they will do anything to get taxpayer money spent so that they can claim it is too late to stop it.

Any other projects started with the price for tearing it down already planned? Nobody sees anything odd here??? Like maybe in the long run contractors will make more $$$ if it is stopped the way contrats are written in their favor.

They say rail will bring a better quality of life. Who is to say their way is better...every thing is rush rush rush. Slow down this ain't the mainland. Take time to smell the plumerias not concrete. It is so wrong when they start chopping down the palm trees and putting a concrete pillar in it's place. Wake up Hawaii!

Their goal is to turn Hawaii into Hong Kong. Ever seen the Long-Range Master Plan? Slum-like Condos lining the highway all the way from Pokai Bay out to Kaena Point. Democrats working for the unions.

Does aint goin to be condos does will all be public housing with affordable rents for does that qualify. Slumlords will not be able for compete with public housing. Some already built and more coming. Leeward coastline will be the designated ghetto area like you see in Michigan,Houston,Oakland, and all big cities. Once that happens all real estate on the westside will be worth zero. Look at where the rail begins. Notice it stops and begins at Disneys and JW Marriots projects? Its the the master plan for the westside where all low income people will eventually live.
