  • Re: Sen. Hirono, Other Democrats Introduce Bill Rescinding Trump’s Deportation OrderPosted by nitediver on 2/20/2017 1:02pm

    Trump's Executive Order was for 7 countries that are known incubators for terrorists and have wicked designs on global jihad. Also, it is for a limited time until everyone can get better protocols into place to vet the incoming people. It is to PROTECT AMERICA FROM HARM - not to put US citizens in internment camps!

    Another small note about Hakalau that might be important to include in this article. It was closed on Feb. 9th due to the old bridge falling apart. So... you can't go there.

    WHILE I UNDERSTAND THE MEASURES TO PROTECT THE PROPONENTS FROM LITIGATION - I DIS-AGREE WITH THE REPETITIVE NATURE OF THE MEASURES . IF THE PATIENT SIGNS A ONE TIME LEGAL CONSENT, COMPLETE WITH WITNESSES & NOTARY, WHAT IS THE NEED TO PUT SAID PATIENT THROUGH MORE B.S. BEAUROCRACY ? I KNOW LAWYERS ARE ALL OVER THIS BUT THEY SELDOM HAVE A HUMANE SIDE TO THEIR AGENDA . PLEASE DON'T PUT US IN THIS TANGLED WEB YOU WEAVE JUST TO SAVE YOUR ASS-ETS !

  • Re: Senate Committee Passes Aid-in-Dying ActPosted by Susan Odetta on 2/16/2017 8:41am

    It's interesting that the Commerce Consumer Protection Agency is the body that is recommending this Bill. I am strongly in favor of a law that allows people to hasten their own death when it is merciful to do so.

  • Re: Buckle Up for Rising Gas PricesPosted by metalman808 on 2/16/2017 3:57am

    Gas prices always rise after elections. The oil companies contribute millions and millions to the elections. After the elections they want some of that money back. Guess how they do that?

  • Re: Buckle Up for Rising Gas PricesPosted by Steve on 2/16/2017 1:48am

    At the pump. Not attention at the pump

  • Re: Buckle Up for Rising Gas PricesPosted by Steve on 2/16/2017 1:47am

    Maybe the oil owners should take a pay cut. They are already rich af. Making the poor pay more attention the pump. People are basically working to put gas in their cars so they can make it to work.

    Volunteering to take more on with already stressed resources:
    "TOO MUCH ALOHA"

  • Re: LETTER: Hawai‘i Could Be a Sanctuary to Trump’s Immigration BanPosted by troubador on 2/15/2017 9:26am

    Those of us following Germany's open-door policy know
    many of these crimes were committed against WOMEN
    .
    European nations once so welcoming have changed their minds
    after watching people who could've been nothing but grateful
    flying their true colors to the incremental detriment of the communities
    that welcomed them not so long ago. The 'thanks' they got !

    Our children do not need to know about 'honor killings' and the various
    reasons for what in our country boils down to murder.

    Maybe someone put the author up to writing this article ?
    Maybe self-same author would not mind these people as neighbors ?

    Trump has been successful at giving the ignorant a voice...yours is loud and clear. Mahalo

  • Re: LETTER: Hawai‘i Could Be a Sanctuary to Trump’s Immigration BanPosted by steboto on 2/14/2017 6:39am

    Obviously Mr Chang ,has not been to Europe recently to see Germany's 33% increase in crime . Many people who call Hawaii home would disagree with him. However people like Dr. Clemens Ladenburger would applaud his heroic ignorance .

  • Re: Hawai‘i Files Lawsuit Against President TrumpPosted by Jon888 on 2/14/2017 4:34am

    I see one too… And is right above me. Actually, make that TWO.

  • Re: Hawai‘i Files Lawsuit Against President TrumpPosted by Jon888 on 2/14/2017 4:32am

    My spirit of “Aloha” is dedicated to all those homeless Hawaiian residents sleeping in the streets due to low percentage of employment opportunities and unspeakable high rents. That’s where my Aloha spirit goes to.
    Hawaiians FIRST!!!
    Again, it is absolutely astonishing that you would use fake moralism to promote kindness over strangers while the members of YOUR community are struggling to survive, while your State is in homelessness alert, while there are no jobs for the residents of Hawaii and people with college degrees have to settle for a minimum wage job, while people have to work 2 JOBS to be able to meet their ends, while 100’s of residents of Hawaii have to compete for 1 shitty job, and so on, and so on..
    Give me a break Lady. Get REAL!!

  • Re: Thousands of Hawai‘i Teachers and Parents Rally at CapitolPosted by metalman808 on 2/14/2017 2:34am

    Just think if they spent 19 million on Big islands children's education. But I guess A Golf course was more important.
