Living In Sin With A Safety Pin

generalelection

The election of Donald Trump was indeed a dramatic change in American politics.  A change for the better, I hope and pray for.  A continuation of the democrats socialist agenda by Hillary Clinton would have further damaged the country, and I believe irreparably.  For the record, I wasn’t for Trump.  Trump wasn’t even on my list of choices.  However, after he won the primary, fair and square, I had to put my support behind him.  I did so by pointing out the flaws of the democrats preordained candidate, Hillary Clinton.  The corruption in the democrat party was so apparent.  The hard left media coverage of Clinton’s campaign decidedly ignored the criminal activity by the Clinton’s and the democrat leadership.

Since Donald Trump won the election, the media has fueled, along with profession protesters, violence, property damage, and social chaos in the streets.  The people causing these riots are not Trump supporters, they are hard line leftist socialists.  There is no excuse for this violence.  This morning, I watching a protest on the TV News, where a school has allowed student to march in protest, carry Mexican flags, and block traffic in the streets.  These are high school students, that should be in class, but the teachers and other leftists are denying students an education so they can protest.  They are not even old enough to vote in the election.

The so called millennials, those reaching adulthood in the 2000’s, that are in college, are being taught they are entitled to sulk, cry, stomp their feet, have a temper tantrum, over the election results.  They are now wearing safety pins as a protest symbol.   Makes sense if you still need a diaper and need to be changed four times a day.

The sense of entitlement is destructive, because these young people are the future of the country.  If they cannot handle disappointment in their life now, then how will they handle life’s challenges in the future when they leave college and enter the real world?  They, as United States citizens, have the First Amendment right to protest, but not violently. Illegals in this country who are not citizens, are not entitled to the same  Constitutional Rights.  There is no right to destroy property, no right to beat up people, no right to obstruct emergency vehicles, there is no right to criminal behavior.

To date, there’s been silence by President Obama.  He almost seems to revel in the chaos. President elect Donald Trump has gone on 60 Minutes and looked at the camera and said, “This has to Stop. Stop It!”  The leftist media perceives Trump supporters are harassing and making racist comment against minorities, but they have no proof. However, you can see minorities beating up people in the street because they supported trump. A pregnant woman was attacked in her car, an elderly man was dragged from hos car and beaten, and a girl was severely beaten for being a Trump supporter.  A mother threw out her ten year old because he voted for Trump in a mock school election. This is insane!

Clearly, these demonstrations are being orchestrated by the democrats, the communist part, the hard left socialists, and anti-American financiers such as George Soros.  It is deliberate attempt to circumvent the election by force, and that is not how this country works in the peaceful transfer of power.  After all, you did not see people rioting in the streets when Obama won the Presidency in 2008, and when he won again in 2012.  However, you did see an erosion of Constitutional freedoms during the eight years of the Obama regime.

The democrats had all the money, all the media power, but they lost the election anyway.  The Founders ingeniously built the Electoral College into the Constitution.  It defines how the Presidential elections are chosen.  It is why we are a Republic and not a democracy.  The Founders knew the history of democracies.  They knew how and why democracies failed.  It was because of Mob Rule, otherwise known as the popular vote.  The tyranny of the majority often creates a single party system that eventually gets corrupted and fails.  It is why our system of government works.  It might not be perfect, but it has worked for over 240 years.  We are the most free, the most wealthiest, and we have the greatest opportunities available in the world.  We are unlike any other government.

It’s no wonder why people want to come to America.  We offer one thing, equal opportunity for all.  Individual rights and freedoms.  The liberty to choose the path we want.  When government attempts to take those rights away, and substitute those rights with government given rights, then people should know that are rights given, can be taken away.  That’s why the Founders called our rights of “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness“, God given rights.  These rights cannot be taken away, they are not man made rights.  They are rights that are given by our creator.   It is up to us, the individual, to use those rights to create the life we want in a land that is free.

Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death

ohia

ʻOhia mai ā pau pono nā ʻike kumu o Hawaiʻi – gather up every bit of the basic knowledge of Hawaiʻi.

ohiaFlower

Hawai’i’s beloved ʻōhiʻa lehua trees are under attack by a fungal disease that has been spreading throughout south east Hawai’i .  It has the potential to kill the trees statewide.

We have many of the trees growing on our property.  We have both the common red blossom tree and the rare yellow blossom tree.  Already, thousands of acres of the trees have died, and there doesn’t seem to be nothing to stop the spread of the fungus.

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources has some useful information about what the fungus is and how to prevent the spread.  Called Ceratocystis wilt, the university has plotted a map where the fungus has spread.

The ʻōhiʻa lehua trees are native only to Hawai’i and must be protected.  So far, our trees have been spared, but I fear it’s only a matter of time before the fungus reaches our trees.

I took this Arial photo of the  ʻōhiʻa forest in my neighborhood.  You can see where the lush green is being replaced with a grayish brown color.  It will be very sad should the forest die and we lose another indigenous species to the islands.

Arrivals And Departures

Arrivals and departures at the Hilo airport is a daily occurrence.  The busy little airport is a hub of tourism and cargo transportation.  One of the pleasant, and attractive features, about Hilo airport is its local feel and character.  Originally known as “General Lyman Field“, the airport was renamed as Hilo International Airport after the Hawai’i department of transportation took it over the operations.

The airport is nestled along the Waiakea and Keaukaha Hawaiian homelands in south Hilo.  The airport is small enough to handle large traffic, yet small enough to preserve that small town feel.  No large presence of most major airports like Honolulu, with long lines and crowded terminals.  Departure terminals are open air waiting areas free from hanging televisions broadcasting 24 hour news stories.  It’s quiet and reflective, roomy and comfortable.  It keeps that small town feel found nowhere else but in Hawai’i’s second largest city.

From Hilo Bay, you can watch arrival and departure flights while casting a fishing line into the bay.  From the flight you can view the landscapes of east Hawai’i coastline.   Revealing small town villages, water falls, surfing shorelines and rocky cliffs.

What I love about Moku o Keawe (The Big Island) is the ruralness.  East Hawai’i island is still very much country life with sprawling farms and vast landscapes of empty country side.  If you’re looking for night-life and big city life, you won’t find it here.  Crowded highways and stacked apartment skyscrapers don’t exist here.  You can witness a night sky crowded with stars, and the outline of the Milky Way.  You can get lost watching the waves roll in from the shore line.  You can find quiet places here just to reflect.  It’s the biggest small town life you cannot find elsewhere.  Lucky you live Hawai’i.

Gathering Harvest

The Beautiful Harvest

  2016-09-24-12-37-11

Harvest time arrives to a bounty of plenty this year.  We’ve had lots of rain this year and that has promoted a great growing season.  It’s like having a backyard grocery store.  With the high cost of food, growing your own fruits and vegetables is a cost savings alternative.  Much of our produce, meats  and packaged products are shipped in from the mainland.  That adds to the cost of living.  So you learn to live locally, and grow locally.

September, 11th, 2001 – We Will Never Forget

 

2016-911

In the early morning of September, 11th, 2001, a crisp clear start to the day, when thousands of innocent lives were shattered, and a country left in mourning.   America was under attack again, by islamic terrorists.

The New York City World Trade Centers destroyed.  The Pentagon badly damaged.  A handful of passengers that made a stand at 40,000 ft.  There are more stories of incredible heroics, but we need to understand who is the enemy.

911_Smoke

Islamic terrorists: who are they?  They are muslims.  Now, some people will cry islamophobia, and indeed not all muslims are terrorists, but all islamic extremists are muslim.  That fact is indisputable.

Since the 7th century, muslims have been at war with other cultures and religions.  History is replete with cruel conquests of islamic tyranny, slavery, and death.  The Crusades were a result of a islamic incursions into Europe. Today, a muslim invasion continues into Europe, except now, they are called refugees of war.  The islamic way of life is a culture of war.  It is in their culture, a twisted cult they call a religion, that calls them to wage war on other cultures.

The truth is that there are very few muslims that will integrate into western culture.  Zuhdi Jasser, M.D. is the Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) and is the author of A Battle for the Soul of Islam.  He recognizes and acknowledges the problem within his culture.  He is part of a small minority of muslims that are very vocal about a real problem in the house of islam.

The majority of muslims, especially two muslims currently elected to Congress don’t share Dr. Jasser’s views.  They openly support sharia law over the United States Constitution.  Keith Ellison and Andre Carson are two muslims elected to congress that are openly hostile to western culture.

Today, it is considered politically incorrect to criticize islam.  You are called by the destructive leftist liberals as a bigot, an islamophobe, a hater.  Just for pointing out the atrocities of islamic terrorism.  It is denying the violence and hatred this cult of savagery inflects on other cultures.  The murder and violence committed by muslims worldwide is well documented by the website that documents these atrocities: The Religion Of Peace.

In the wake of the 9-11 attacks in America, and it’s not the first attack by islamic extremists, there have been many attacks before: in 1993 islamic terrorists tried and failed to blow up the NYC Towers.   Since then, there has been many more vicious attacks: San Bernardino, Orlando, the grandmother beheaded at her job, Ft. Hood massacre, and many more killings by muslims just in this country alone.  Worldwide, the terror attacks are worse.

Sure, people can argue that muslims also kill other muslims, but so what?  It is what in their book that commands them to kill.  To be slaughtered is in their DNA.  Muslim’s don’t discriminate because of your religion, ethnicity, skin color, and your beliefs; they are doing the work of their god, allah.

whatislamis

Leftest liberals will continue to make excuses for the carnage, because they share the same values as the islamic terrorist.  That’s why leftists promote hate groups like CAIR and the muslim brotherhood. They neither believe in the U.S. Constitution, individual rights, religious freedoms, nor JudeoChristian values.  The cornerstone of American values, beliefs, and our Constitutional God given rights.

Obama, and the democrats, openly promote importing more muslims into America, not for refugee status, but as a voting block to keep the democrats in power.  It is cultural suicide.  It is the deliberate destruction of western society.

Now, some will read this, and believe my post is just intolerance.  Yes, it is. I am intolerant of political correctness and denial of the truth.  I don’t care if some find it offensive.  What I find offensive is the excuses to cover up the atrocities of muslims savages by leftist liberals.  This will not go away, and the islamic problem will continue to grow, until it is too late to stop it.

Never Forget 9-11-2001

911Towers

 

Remember the Ground Zero mosque that Feisal Abdul Rauf proposed?  That was the islamic monument to the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers.  It’s what islamics have done for centuries after their conquests.  Put up a mosque to celebrate the murder and destruction of their enemies.  Their enemies are anyone non-muslim.  Anyone that does not subscribe to the sharia law.  The law of demonic terrorism.  Their monument to subjugation to islam.

Islam is hate. Islam is terror. Islam is not a religion. Islam means submission.

Islam Is Not Peace
