Tea Party

teaparty

Ho’olaule’a Ti means Tea Party in Hawaiian.

On April 15th, at 4:00 PM, at the Hilo Bayfront at the Kamehaheha statue a Tea Party to protest the Obama policies of bailing out companies, government pork spending, and socialist policies of the Obama administration.  Find a Tea Party near you!

Socialist Slavery is what the Obama administration is proposing.  The nationalism of banks and private industry is only the beginning.  It is not the governments responsibility to bail out businesses.  Governments responsibility is to protect its citizens.

Death of the Superferry

deathalakaiThe Hawaiian Superferry was finally killed by the Hawaiian Supreme Court.  The environmentalist wackos finally got their wish and put 230 good people out of work.  Good Job Enviro-Nuts.  Good Job Sierra Club, how does it feel to destroy people’s lives to justify a false agenda to protect the planet.  The Sierra Club are environment terrorists and fascists that have only one desire, to control your life.

It’s not only the the employees that will suffer, but businesses also: Love’s Bakery, Fedex, CFI, Expeditors were just a few local companies that used the Superferry for transportation of goods and services.  This was good for the economy.

Oh, but you don’t care about the economy do you Sierra Club.

It’s the socialist agenda that you and Obama are pushing.

Greed

alunu

With all the focus on AIG executive bonuses, the larger deficit  picture is being ignored.  The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has predicted the Obama administration’s policies will  generate deficits averaging nearly a Trillion dollars a year over the next decade.  AIG bonuses were totaled at $165 Million and AIG received $182.5 Billion from the government bailout.  The President and the Congress outraged by these bonuses, yet don’t seem to be equally outraged by the size of the deficit.  Compare the size of the numbers.  A Trillion has 12 zeros, whereas a million has 6 zeros after it.  Consider that last year’s deficit was only $459 Billion, the largest on record, will now top $1.8 Trillion.  A Trillion is a 1000 Billions.  This is unsustainable because the national debt will grow too rapidly.

Listen to Rep. Thaddeus McCotter slamming AIG stimulus protections passed in partisan stimulus bill

Congress Puts Bonuses in the Bailout Bill and Passed It

The Congress and the President don’t seem to care about the size of the deficit, but they are angry about executive bonuses?  The size of the deficit should be alarming to everyone because this will affect everyone for years to come.  Those of you that have children will be paying this off for years, and your children’s children and their grandchildren will be paying this off for years.  Besides focusing anger at executives, the Congress passed a dangerous precedent of taxing the executive bonuses by 90 percent.  This is a MOB mentality that will open the flood gates for Congress to tax anyone they deem unfavorable.  Congress allowed the bonuses to be written into the bailout bill.  What are our elected officials doing?  Do they even read the bills they are passing?  Why are we paying their salaries for incompetent work?


Now that the government owns 80 percent of AIG, are we expecting our government to run AIG’s business like they run their own business?  Our country is being misled.  We are being robbed by our own government.  The same people who took campaign funds from AIG are in charge of running our government.   As  our President used to say on the campaign trail, “this is just another distraction”, and it is.  AIG is a distraction, away from the larger picture, the deficit.

Steam Rising from the Pu’u ‘O ‘O Vent at Kapoho

People should be streamed about what the Congress and the President is doing.  AIG should not be the focus of anger since these contracts were in place before AIG accepted the bailout money.  What’s worst is the government’s attention on the executives that received the bonuses have brought death threats against the executives and their families.  This pitch fork mob mentality is dangerous.  Not just because of the violent threats against people, but the atmosphere that will be created.  If you demonize a business, you destroy that business.  Who will want to work for AIG?  What will happen to the billions of our tax dollars used to bailout AIG if AIG employees are too fearful for their safety, and their families safety,  to work for the company?

When has being Paid Too Much Greed?

Apparently, Our President, Barack Hussein Obama, cannot speak in public without a teleprompter to help him speak.

I thought he was the great orator?  What happened?

Is the Teleprompter our real president?

Should we be listening to the teleprompter for the country’s direction?

When the President cannot form a cohesive thought or Statement  without help from a mechanical device, well, we have a problem.

Do we have a President Of The United States, or do we have a…..

Teleprompter Of The United States?

Hilo Rain

uahilo

It’s been raining for two weeks now.  There’s flooding everywhere on the roads.  Pools of water are forming on people property like swimming pools.  The temperature has been in the 60’s and that’s bone chilling cold to us.  Sometimes the wind coming off the ocean makes the windchill seem even colder.  We’re wearing socks, sweatpants and sweatshirts during the day and night.  A heavy quilt on the bed just to keep warm at night.  Such is our winters.

A View From the Lana’i

Without a doubt, our winter has arrived in full force.  When we first moved here in 2005, our first winter on the islands, was one of the rainiest in 100 years of Hawaiian history.  Dams burst on Kaua’i and landslides on O’Ahu, were just some of the huge water problems during that time.  Luckily we live on a fairly level grade so fast rushing water is not a problem for us.  However that’s not the case in other places in our subdivision.

Pohaku and 39th Avenue

The water rushing down like a torrent is fairly consistent with this topology here in the Orchidland subdivision.  Eventually it will erode the land to a point where this intersection will be impassable without either a bridge or some other structure to withstand the water.  There have been many efforts by the Orchidland Community Association to fix the problem, but each effort has failed due to association board members personal agendas.  This is a real problem for this subdivision because our roads have been suffering as a result of people using the association board for their own personal order of business.

dsc006621

Desperation and Frustration

The roads are beginning to deteriorate due to the weather, and the lack of effort by the association board of directors.  The Board has fallen into disarray and malaise due to members past and present forcing their own agendas into managing the subdivision.  Mismanagement of Association Road Fees monies have brought lawsuits against the association by residents.  Now, the road fees are being used to pay lawyers and the roads are falling into disrepair.

potholes

Potholes, but how deep?

You can wreck your cars suspension by driving through this all the time.   You don’t know how deep the potholes are.  This is a problem not only on the paved roads, but it’s worse on the unpaved roads.   Just like our nations economy, the board spent money to fix a problem that needed to be fixed NOW! They spent money, lots of money, almost all the budget, on putting gravel on all of the 40 miles of unpaved roads in the year 2006.  Now, they have no money to fix the roads.  Now, the locals are resorting to beg for money to fix the roads the association cannot fix.  Shameful.

Such is our winters, but this is what it’s all about.  Lucky you live Hawai’i, is an expression that we always say.

Pork Brains

It’s like these people, these elected officials, these idiots, it’s like they all get on a train and go through a tunnel into Washington DC only to come out as different people than the ones we elected.  All the talk of campaign promises are just that, talk.  There’s no accountability.  I guess it’s our fault, we keep electing these clowns into office.

So now, they, the democrats, wants to shift the administration’s incompetence and failure on a Radio Talk Show Host.

Lilliputian Neil Abercrombie announced he want to be the next Governor of the State of Hawai’i.  I don’t know what’s worse, either having some Menehune running around supporting the economic destruction polices of the Obama administration or trying to govern the Great State of Hawai’i.  I can only support Duke Aiona, a hapa native Hawaiian who is currently serving as Hawai’i’s Lieutenant Governor.  The smart choice.

Hawaiian Strawberry

Hawaiian Strawberry

So lovey in color and in taste.  This delicacy grows wild all around the islands.  However, you just cannot pick and eat the tasty fruit.  It could have a parasite living on it.  Such is the problem with living in the tropics, we have viruses and other creepy crawlies living here, and you never know where they’ve been.

Recently in the local news here on the Big Island of Hawai’i, two people have now fallen into a coma due to something called Rat Lung Disease.   It’s called by the CDC as Angiostrongylus cantonensis , this is a disease only found in rats.  It is a parasite that is be spread by rat feces. Snails and slugs get infected by ingesting the larvae in rat feces. These larvae mature in snails and slugs but do not become adult worms. The life cycle comes full circle when rats eat infected snails or slugs and the larvae further mature to become adult worms.

How does someone get infected?  By eating either under-cooked raw shellfish, snails or frogs.  Also People also can get infected by accident, by eating raw produce (such as lettuce) that contains a small snail or slug or part of one.  The solution is to wash your vegetables thoroughly.

But this is true where ever you go.  Vegetables that are not washed can spread Hepatitis A, and even salmonella. Ingestion of fecal matter, even in microscopic amounts, from close person-to-person contact or ingestion of contaminated food or drinks can spread Hepatitis A and salmonella.  So, if a dog pees on your vegetable garden, expect to get sick if you don’t wash your vegetables.  Even if you buy your vegetables from the grocery, the farmers market, or from your neighbor, good hygiene begins with washing your produce.  And your hands.

DANGER

Hawaiians have a deep respect for the ocean and the land.  Most people follow common sense values.  Others do not. They need signs to guide them away from danger.  Never turn your back to the ocean.  Never eat unwashed raw food.
