Open Letter to Hawaii's Superdelegates

the democratic party set up the supers to vote as they see fit. if you have a problem with that, you need to take it up with the democratic party. if their answer doesn't suit you, you need to get out of the party. not to say you should become republican, but that you should vote for whoever you think best for the position, regardless of party affiliation. the founding fathers never envisioned a two party system like we have today. in fact, after elections in ealry american history, the candidate who got the most votes was president, the runner up was vice president. seems like a plan to me!  (Mar 27, 2008 | post #4)

bumper sticker i saw: Damn Haoles

best i saw was: slow down, this ain't the mainland! got mad at first, then thought about it and agreed with it. as for getting mad about racist stickers, why bother? you don't know him, he don't know you, who cares?  (Mar 27, 2008 | post #63)

An open letter to Topix users

wow, what an awesome waste of technology, time and effort. post what you want. if you don't want people to imitate you, register. if you want to imitate people, sit in front of a mirror and do as the reflection does for an hour.  (Mar 27, 2008 | post #34)

4000 dead Americans

as for supporting the troops but not the war, look at it as football. love the team, cheer for the team...then curse the coach for a bonehead play or a losing season.  (Mar 27, 2008 | post #75)

4000 dead Americans

4000 dead for us, 150000 dead for them...imagine how many more of them would be dead without the 4000 of ours who died protecting them. my brother is there now and his opinion is that if we leave, they will kill each other within 6 months. me personally, i say let them do it. he, however, is living there and sees the day to day misery and trauma. as a humanitarian, he wants to stay and fix things as best as he can. regardless of who started the mess or made it worse, it is what it is.  (Mar 27, 2008 | post #74)

OHA upset over proposed audit

i feel an audit is a good thing. OHA has been in the news a lot lately and i have seen several questions as to where the money goes once OHA gets it. would be good to find out.  (Mar 27, 2008 | post #4)

Molokai Ranch closure leaves bleak prospects

is the land for sale? would be nice if someone other than investors bought it, but is it for sale? the guy is a billionaire, he can afford to let it sit there and rot. as for an earlier question why the houses couldn't be built elsewhere, most of the property is preserved and can't be developed. that portion could. still say the guy had a right to shut down.  (Mar 26, 2008 | post #56)

Molokai Ranch to close, lay off 120

is the land really for sale? seems this guy owns plenty. why wouldn't he let it sit for 10 years? just for spite? it's his land, he can do what he wants with it. it's his business, he can do what he wants with it. seems to me that the employees were ok with the plan, the politicians were ok with the plan, the environmentalists were ok with getting 50,000 acres. what went wrong?  (Mar 26, 2008 | post #366)

Lawmakers must seek way to help Aloha Air

there is a paragraph that states that the company might be able to make payments to the state if they get the tax breaks and loan guarantees. the money owed is for landing fees and leases on buildings. this money is owed to the state. the state is trying to bail them out so it can collect. does anyone else see the problem here? have the state take over NOT buy out the airline. if the only reason to file bankruptcy is because of the money owed to the state, then a state owned airline would be exempt from the landing fees and leases, therefore, all revenue goes to the state. win win?  (Mar 26, 2008 | post #8)

Molokai Ranch closure leaves bleak prospects

let's say you bought some land 30 years ago. then you built a resort on half of it and operated it for 30 years. now you want to build something else on the other half. the community that you have supported for 30 years says no. forget the fact that you worked with them for 30 years. forget the fact that you were a major employer for 30 years. they just said no and the politicians agreed. i would close the first operation and let the land sit there for 30 more years. the land is paid for, the operation was paid for and was making money. not going to hurt me to close it down. maybe 30 years from now, i would be welcomed back into business. but for now, if you don't want my money or the jobs i offer, then screw you, i'm closing. careful what you wish for, you just might get it.  (Mar 26, 2008 | post #18)

Transit tax proves to be big windfall for state

i always thought it was strange to require 10% to collect taxes. doesn't the state do that all the time anyway? good to see that they did something under budget.  (Mar 26, 2008 | post #10)

Honolulu police seize dogs of park homeless

HPD has to enforce whatever laws they can to eradicate these people from the beaches and parks. i read another story in yesterday's paper where the citations they have been issuing do not work anymore. now they have to use laws like this or laws concerning trespassing. i have no use for the ones who reject help. i have been homeless and have always found a way to get back on my feet. strange to say, it never involved drugs or alcohol!! as for affordable housing, look around oahu and see all the low rent, section 8 approved ghettos. do you really want more of these slums? trash all over, abandoned cars, broken everything? i saw a few posts here saying let them pool their money and get a place. never gonna happen.  (Mar 24, 2008 | post #146)

Rail could cost Oahu more
