Linda is bogus. Let her work for her bosses in Israel and leave us alone out here.

However just to prove your full of it, when did care so much about the energy crisis/conservation since you see Lingle signing the solar water heater law, as a gesture and stuff. If you truly care you would be very happy, instead of seeing a flawed bill (from your other post). Egg on my face, ok I guess i'll DRIVE home in my CAR to wash it off then.
Your post contains nothing but purposeful inaccuracies and childish insults.

You still haven't changed my mind about Linda driving around in a luxury gas guzzler.

<quoted text>I'll admit i'm as childish as you saying Lingle doesn't care about Hawaii (what because she choose to drive an SUV), but your above purposeful inaccuracies and childish insults. So if she chose a hybrid she loves Hawaii? Yep i'm childish.
I love how you omit $55,000 LUXURY gas guzzling from Linda's new vehicle description.

What I actually said and apparently what you refuse to hear is that there are tons of reasons why Linda should leave. One merely has to look at the condition of Hawaii to understand that.

BTW, has ANYONE out there ever gotten the stated mpg on the car sticker? I never did. So, the reported 12mpg for city driving is more like 10mpg or less, yeah?

<quoted text>If there are a ton of reasons i'm listening. So far I heard only 2 from you and 1 being purely subjective of Lingle not caring about Hawaii, the other being her Luxury SUV that if she got a the hybrid it would cost even more money. So waiting for a ton of bricks to hit me. See blame the vast majority of democrats in the house and senate for shooting down my of her policies, striping her of powers, as well deny her appointments to depts and judges. Creating bad and/or flawed bills (as you stated) to become law. Democrats have the power to make any bill law regardless of what Lingle says. I'm more concern with the millions of dollars and resources that democrats waste. But please go ahead and cited your ton of objective reasons please.

FYI:there called hypermilers
Democrats and Republicans are merely different sides of the same coin (both corrupt as far as I'm concerned).

My opinion regarding Linda's poor choice for a tax payer funded vehicle is not based on any political affiliation, on her part or my part.

Yea. I am waiting too. cant wait to see this "objective" list of "factual data" I will even take just 100 reasons. I don't need more than a few hundred.

50 years of democrat control and you think a republican governor "messed it all up" in 5 years. people like you really scare me. I have had people tell me, with a straight face and every ounce of belief they have that WWII, the Nazis and concentration camps never actually happened and it was all fake. I hear you saying that Lingle needs to be out for a "ton of reasons" and it gives me the same willie chicken skin as if I am listening to the WWII never happened freak.

Actually, your comparison of complaining about the governor to denying the atrocities of the Nazis really scares ME. I think you really need to reexamine your views.

Opinions on politics are one thing. Don't try to sensationalize by comparing that to denying the deaths of millions. That's pretty sick.

You said it. I don't care what your party is. You're a pretty sick guy comparing disagreeing with Lingle with denying the Nazi atrocities.

Here's an idea....

Why don't you give me 100 reasons why she should STAY.

p.s. My apologies for going off topic from Linda's 12mpg Luxury SUV.

I'll start the list off for you....

1. She may sign the Stop Rail Now petition.

Go!

You missed the point completely.
I was not comparing complaing about the governor to the denying the atrocities of the Nazis.

The point is that there are people in this world that will deny even the most blatently obvious and factual data available. Even when the data and facts were witnessed first hand by hundreds of millions of people, my father being one of them.(so back off, i have room to talk. i am here only because "they" missed one.)

With that said. there are people in this state and on this board, including many of you, that will deny that there was ever a problem with anything in hawaii until the republican governor showed up. no matter what she does, she will always be wrong in your eyes. and when you ask how it got this bad, the answer is it's all the governors fault, completely ignoring 50 years of history and facts.

I think you're the one who's wrong. What you said very clearly compared complaining about the Governor with denying the Nazis did what they did.

I'm glad your father escaped death by the Nazis. But don't tell anyone to back off because of that. My father died fighting the Nazis. So did my uncle. Maybe they even died so your father could live. But the last time I checked, this was America and people can say what they want. I would never deny them that.
