  • Re: Mayor Kim: Homelessness Remains a High FocusPosted by Papillon on 3/25/2017 9:24pm

    "Mayor Kim said the effort would be done as a “team,” involving local organizations as well as the state government."

    Did Mayor Kim provide a timeline to figure this out? I agree that he should have done his homework prior to becoming Mayor so he could hit the ground running as someone else pointed out. As we are not the first/only city with a homelessness problem, how hard is it to implement a plan (and modify as fits our situation) that has been successfully executed in other cities? This problem did not happen overnight and it is shameful to act as if it's a new problem requiring an in depth study.

    They waited for cops? I'd love to know more of this story.

  • Re: Mayor Kim: Homelessness Remains a High FocusPosted by Scooby on 3/25/2017 1:30am

    Maybe Harry can broker a deal to build a huge homeless camp on DHL land. What is his definition of "haves vs have-nots?" So I'm guessing he wants everyone to be equal? I didn't work hard all my life for you to take from me and give to those who choose not to work. And I'm talking about those who can and choose not to.

    Rep. Beth Fukumoto splits from Republican Party...
    All I'm confused about is ; What took so long? And maybe... Why haven't the rest of them come to their senses?
    The Trump / Pence Whitehouse is disturbing and a disgrace. The Health Care Bill Ryan put in front of us was equally disturbing & proof that a Party standing for the 1% has no moral interest in America, us, the other 99%

  • Re: Sen. Hirono on House Republicans’ Failed Effort on TrumpCarePosted by The E S on 3/24/2017 12:50pm

    I wish to thank Sen. Mazie K. Hirono. I am so very thankful for her strength, courage and understanding.
    I have insurance... But trust me when I tell you, I believe every American should have Universal coverage for our people. I live in the Mountains of Appalachia. Our people are hurting in a devistated economy with few prospects. Thank You for fighting for all the people who are in need.

  • Re: VIDEO: Rep. Gabbard Calls for Decriminalization of MarijuanaPosted by Rex A. Weigel, D.C. on 3/22/2017 10:55am

    Good job Congresswoman Gabbard. Let's make sense of the failed "war on drugs" and the costs it has burdened us with. Why not allocate the cannabis tax to schools, homelessness or drug rehabilitation centers? Congress is stressing over the societal costs of oxycodone addiction/abuse well let's solve both challenges with one fell swoop. Why not steer patients towards non-life threatening medications like cannabis, and away from the life threatening addiction of pharmaceuticals? Is it really that complicated? Does anyone think we should continue down this path towards self destruction. It didn't take that long for alcohol prohibition to be reversed. Why and what are we waiting for with respect to cannabis prohibition?

    The tobacco company now pays for nicotine addiction cures? Wouldn't this be a similar use of commercially generated income?

    Keep up the good work Congresswoman.

    This is very sad. I am sure the budget cuts could have looked into other programs
    further and decide to continue to fund the Produce for Low Income Kupuna.
    Many Volunteers helped to keep the program going...

    WHILE I UNDERSTAND THE FEAR OF MJ AS A GATEWAY DRUG, & EVEN IT'S SCHED. 1 RATING, I ALSO RECOGNIZE THE HEALING & PAIN RELIEVING VALUE OF IT'S PROPER USE. THE DECISION TO FOLLOW OR LEAD THE WAY TO UNDERSTANDING THE NATURAL WAY OF OUR HERBAL RESOURCES IS CRUCIAL TO THE CHANGES OF OUR WORLD WE ALL SHARE. THE LAW IS OUTDATED AT BEST & NO LONGER SERVES THE CITIZENRY THAT IS QUICKLY MOVING TOWARDS LEGALIZATION & THE BENEFITS IT BRINGS IN ECONOMY & COMMERCE. IT DESERVES CONSIDERATION & WORTHY OF YOUR TIME & EFFORTS TO SEE THE BIG PICTURE. AGAIN I SEE THE MANY WAYS OUR SENATOR GABBARD HAS CONTRIBUTED TO PURSUING THE ISSUES THAT BENEFIT OUR PEOPLE HERE IN hawai'i. GOD BLESS HER - THANK YOU *

    Wouldn't it be nice if our elected officials protected America from persons and nation states that wish us harm ... .... Or, if they are going to extend American freedoms, so hard won, to all other nations and their citizens - then they could ban sharia law and free the captives of so many living under that tyrannous yoke.

  • Re: Sierra Club: Lawmakers to Discuss Clean Transportation BillPosted by troubador on 3/21/2017 3:18am

    Ambitious, yes. So many variables in this equation -
    e.g., with the present technology, electric cars are only as clean
    as the energy source recharging them.
    Technologies do improve. However, factor in political climates,
    unforeseen financial events, (usually shortfalls), utility monopolies -
    best of luck with this idea.

  • Re: Three Men Charged With Goat Theft, Guns, DrugsPosted by Blue Hawaii on 3/20/2017 9:56pm
