  • Re: Rep. Fukumoto Responds to Hate LetterPosted by Gary Ryder on 8/18/2017 9:45pm

    A under edumacated supporter for #45 who is recipe for bowl of PHUQ who occupies our Oval office!

  • Re: Rep. Fukumoto Responds to Hate LetterPosted by Rachel on 8/18/2017 1:21pm

    Rep. Fukumoto was deeply unpopular among quite a few in the Republican party and that was way before she came out against Trump.

    And really, how much trouble is she likely to be having with people who don't like her race? As someone who is of Japanese ancestry myself, I know that problems are slim to none, notwithstanding people like Fukumoto and others who ostentatiously play the victim. The letter she quotes sounds a little too convenient for her, written by someone who wants to make her former fellow Republicans look bad. I mean, really, what Republican in their right mind would write a letter like that, especially purporting to be on behalf of all Republicans? And even if the letter is legit, Fukumoto is blaming President Trump for a letter that he had nothing to do with.

    Defective motor? Is this a joke?

  • Re: Rep. Fukumoto Responds to Hate LetterPosted by Lil B on 8/18/2017 2:16am

    My bet is this is an attempt at attention. Honestly, who writes letters anymore. If she really received a hate letter, I apologize, but if I had to bet, this is a stunt for political gain.

    Keep up the good work, we all need to be informed and aware.

  • Re: Rep. Fukumoto Responds to Hate LetterPosted by vet2640 on 8/17/2017 2:45pm

    Not to worry Representative Fukumoto, these hate mongers are weak in character and have no moral compass. This goes beyond “party”, not acceptable, and our Country will pay a very heavy price worldwide if “we” allow this rhetoric to continue, we stand with you!

  • Re: Rep. Fukumoto Responds to Hate LetterPosted by Tom VanDeren on 8/17/2017 2:32pm

    Don't let them win, Representative! They emulate the person in the Oval Office by being loud, obnoxious bullies. They certainly don't represent me or this country. And they don't speak for Hawai'i! Proud to have you in office!

  • Re: Rep. Fukumoto Responds to Hate LetterPosted by GorgeousThings on 8/17/2017 12:23pm

    Stay strong, Rep. Fukumoto. These little people won't defeat you, nor will they force their extremist white nationalist ideology on the rest of us.

  • Re: Poll: 71% of O‘ahu Residents Want Rail to Ala Moana CenterPosted by myauthorizedopinion on 8/17/2017 6:21am

    Why only 71%? While they are pulling numbers out of their tails, just say 100%. Means the same thing, B S is B S.

  • Re: Poll: 71% of O‘ahu Residents Want Rail to Ala Moana CenterPosted by Lil B on 8/16/2017 1:56pm

    And .71% of big island residents want to pay for it.

    US Vets is a fraud, and needs to be shut down.

  • Re: County Urges Proper Disposal of TiresPosted by Lil B on 8/16/2017 8:28am

    How about letting people take tires to transfer stations? It's the only way people will not dump them illegally. It gets real old to see tires dumped on back roads. I know it costs the county money....blah blah blah. What doesn't?

  • Re: HCCC Staff Thwart Detainee Escape EffortsPosted by Lil B on 8/15/2017 1:23pm

    wait till u go to the big boy house with that tiny waist n pretty face... you in for a big surprise. You may think ur bad on this island, wait till u get shipped to the mainland and nobody got ur back. It's a scary place....karma baby

  • Re: HPD Task Force Efforts Result in 27 ArrestsPosted by Lil B on 8/15/2017 11:28am

    Bout time...kinda like pis*ing on a forest fire now. Wait till the problem is at a boiling point before actually doing anything. At least the revolution has started. Next up....don't reelect Mitch Roth! If we plant the seed about our disgust for the prosecuting attorney, maybe he will catch wind and turn his ways around. How many people has he giving "lienient" sentences too, only to have them reoffend?

  • Re: Public Potable Water Distribution Stations Set Up for North KonaPosted by Scooby on 8/15/2017 1:10am

    Where's Harry Kim? Restore any trust in government yet Kim? He can't even restore a proper water system.

  • Re: Public Potable Water Distribution Stations Set Up for North KonaPosted by Dudley Twimp on 8/14/2017 10:57am

    If it is not possible to live off-grid in an area, it is probably not that great an idea to live there on-grid either.

  • Re: Big Island NowPosted by KrustyKola on 8/14/2017 1:36am

    There is some common sense to bring to this discussion. First let's agree there is no free lunch, with that I mean there is no action that does not have consequences.
    So when you literally burn thru hydrocarbons that took millions of years to accumulate in a couple of hundred years it is not out of the realm of belief that action may upset the natural state of the environment.
    As to the whole thing being fake what is the pay off for that? Is the evil solar panel and wind power consortium behind it? Now use the same question on what do the backers of global warming as a hoax have to gain, is it the evil oil companies and coal consortium?
    Like the old saying says follow the money, always follow the money.

  • Re: North Kona Emergency Water Restriction ContinuesPosted by lownoisehighsignal on 8/13/2017 11:54pm

    Understanding the five stages of water grief.

    1. Oh, it happens... (Denial)

    2. How can this happen? (Anger)

    3. Lawsuits against County by hotels, farmers, residents, and others for damages. (Bargaining)

    4. Start recall movement against politicians that oversee the water department. (Depression)

    5. I hope we don't get to the fifth level... (Acceptance).

    Why is this news? The answer is too sad to repeat.

  • Re: Captain Cook Girl, 15, Reported MissingPosted by Lil B on 8/13/2017 2:28pm

    Stupid? Haha, that's the pot calling the kettle black. Missing means, they probably ran away. In your inbred mind, you have came up with a "trafficking" scenario, which you have zero proof.. some people just speculate and run their mouth without any facts, which is a "fact" in your case.

  • Re: Captain Cook Girl, 15, Reported MissingPosted by Kevin on 8/13/2017 2:15pm

    Are you stupid? Speculating what?.... The weekly news release of missing teens on this site and others is fact. Quit replying to me you are a waste of energy.

  • Re: Captain Cook Girl, 15, Reported MissingPosted by Lil B on 8/13/2017 2:12pm

    Ok got it.. you are speculating and don't actually have any real info.

  • Re: Captain Cook Girl, 15, Reported MissingPosted by Kevin on 8/13/2017 2:06pm

    This website reports it every week? The fact there is a missing teen every single week and sometimes two a week posted on this site says it all! That is my point. This site and others have been posting this weekly for years now. If I knew anything personally I'd take em on a free one way fishing trip!
