I was here at Statehood. Everybody wanted to be a State. It is a real shame that the loud voices against America drown out the regular people whose lives have so improved with our joining the union. You cannot go backwards and the loud ones will never get what they want, a free ride. That is a beautiful stamp, reminds me of my youth at Kuhio Beach dodging the canoes in the water. Love It. aloha and God Bless our State Home.

I think we should have a stamp with good old Queen Liliuokalani's picture on it surrounded by the words "Surrender Monkey".

You know, keep it historically accurate for a change!

Everyone was NOT in favor of statehood. My family proudly voted against it.

Those who were for it were the Plantation Asian immigrants who saw an opportunity to take control of Hawaii, which they did.

Turned out pretty well for most Asian immigrants today. Didn't turn out so well for Hawaiians, or for the open spaces or for the beaches or for the fish.

But hey, at least all you immigrants do stand around and sing Hawaii Ponoi, a song written by our King and which sings allegiance to Hawaiian royalty. You sing it even though you have no clue what you are singing because you only memorized 2 dozen Hawaiian words and they aren't the words in Hawaii Pono'i. You have no idea how stupid you look and sound when you proud Hawaii State residents sing that.

Don't for get the chains she was put into while placed under house arrest in the 2nd floor, diamond head room of Iolani Palace.

Those chains were real and they kind of make the point.

Aye, just like Monkey islands of Tonga, Samoas, and the cannibalistic Fiji. Also Easter Island. Supposed to suck, not eat each other.

Thus an inherent problem with some Americans. This stamp only epitomizes the ignorance of America. They should have chosen something else.
They should have promoted reading a book about Hawaiian history instead of promoting a lie which is not... good to teach our children.
Lana, YOU are the inherent problem in Hawaii!

This stamp was designed by a famous local artist, not designed a by a politician or by a Hawaiian Sovereignty activist such as yourself.

This is ARTWORK that simply represents Hawaii in the sport of surfing, something we all tend to appreciate with the effort of the masterful skills displayed on a canvas of ocean waves.

We are ALL Hawaiian Americans living on a tropical island chain in the United States of America.

On April 30, 1900, an enactment was signed by President McKinley, and through that enactment of the Organic Act by the Congress of the United States of America, Hawaii became a U.S. Territory.

On August 21, 1959, Hawaii became the 50th State of the United States of America.

The funniest thing is that there are some people who actually believe this garbage about sovereignty.

HawHaw, answer this: Why did the ex-queen herself never mention that petition in her book, or in any of her annual diaries? Why did the newspapers, both English and Hawaiian language, never mention the petitions? Maybe you'll say Liliuokalani was part of the conspiracy to suppress them? You got some 'splainin' to do.

-Yes friend, surfing is a Hawaiian innovation of masterful skills. You appear to be unfamiliar with Hawaiian Nationals resident i Ko Hawai'i Pae'aina [The Hawaiian archipelago] That is why periodically we see on Sovereignty posters: "We are not American, We are not Americans, We are Hawaiians, and we will die as Hawaiians." Your attention friend is best directed to: www.hawaii-nation.org/ Pinky the Cat desires you to see whose "paws" were the inherent problem, and the terminological inexactitudes of your historical datum and the discrepancy disparities therein. It will only take a few short moments of your time so paws [pause] please friend for reflective thought.-Mahalo.

-Even funnier there are people today who believe there were no manned lunar landings, the lunar missions happened, as will Hawaiian Independence happen in the years to come. So friend "get over it" when it comes to this gobbledegook about "statehood" the fake "state" has been exposed, and all the lies in the world will not make it otherwise. Hawai'i is a Sovereign, Independent Country awaiting de-occupation. The mirth is how people have been duped to date.

So because surfing is a Hawaiian innovation only Hawaiians are able to depict surfing or surf. I suggest you get off the computer NOW as it was not a Hawaiian innovation. In fact shut off your power. Give away your car, etc.
Do you have any pictures or art of stuff like cars, planes, etc. if so burn them now they do not belong to you. In fact if that is the case
go light a fire and draw on some rocks you ignorant fool!!!

-Without making waves perhaps the Right Honorable friend would be good enough to research Duke Paoa Kahanamoku to see how surfing is open to all, while you are on the computer. You may even learn about another innovation called Aloha which has a "stamp" of approval... So friend to you Aloha is extended.

By your reasoning, the African-American community should be thankful their ancestors got a free boat ride to America.
