My Lefty Newspaper Endorses Republican

Welina mai e nā makamaka heluhelu o māua ola i Moku o Keawe

(Greetings readers of Our Life on The Big Island of Hawai’i)

In a surprising Lāpule Nūpepa (Sunday Newspaper edition) editorial, the Tribune-Herald endorses the Republican Candidates Duke Aiona and Lynn Finnegan, for Governor and Lt. Governor.

Former U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D) is experienced and feisty, but we fear his left-leaning nature will result in more taxes, fewer jobs and bigger government.

Duke Aiona (R) is far more conservative than Linda Lingle — and that worries us — but he can be trusted to fight the Democrat-controlled Legislature’s inevitable attempts to squeeze more money out of businesses and taxpayers.

More than anything, though, the choice boils down to this: Hawaii simply cannot afford to return to the days when one political party controls both the executive and legislative branches. One-party rule is bad for Hawaii — especially during these troubling economic times.

Why voting for the Republican worries the paper is unclear.  The paper doesn’t go into any detail why, but we can surmise the newspapers left of center reporting is the real reason.   However, they’ve nailed who Abercrombie is, a tax and spend democrat.  They know Abercrombie base is the teachers unions and SEIU.

Eight years of the Republican Linda Lingle administration has been met with a hostile and extremist democrat legislature.  Duke Aiona and Lynn Finnegan are local people with deep local values.  Abercrombie is a transplant from Buffalo, New York.  Abercrombie, a 10 year senator for the 1st district of Hawai’i has had a unremarkable resume’, except to follow the bidding of Dan Inouye.  The record show bloated government, union cronyism, and staggering taxes.

In a second surprise endorsement, the paper likes Marlene Hapai for the 4th District in Hawai’i.  That’s my district and I did vote for Marlene Hapai.  I met with Marlene and I believe she has better grasp on the local issues on the Big Island.

Now, my endorsements:

We Endorse Duke Aiona and Lynn Finnegan, Governor, Lt Governor

We endorse Cam Cavasso for U.S. Senate over Daniel Inouye

We endorse Charles Djou for U.S. Representative District 1 over Colleen Hanabusa

We endorse John Willougby for U.S. Representative District 2 over Mazie Hirono

We endorse Marlene Hapai for State Representative District 4 over Faye Hanohano

We choose these candidates for their policies on lower taxes, smaller government, and fiscal responsibility.

Just to make the elections even more confusing.  There were 21 Ballot Measures, questions.

What’s For Dinner?















Says the Obama, troubled by remarks by top Republicans.  No Compromise has been our message to the GOP and possibly they might be getting the message.  We do not want any compromise.  We want the repeal of Obamacare.

“That’s why I found the recent comments by the top two Republicans in Congress so troubling,” Obama said in his weekly radio address, in which he urged Democrats and Republicans to work together on issues like extending middle-class tax cuts.

Let’s just review some of Obama’s comments:

We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.


Quite the uniter this president is.  A democrat congress that dominates every bit of legislation.  Unwilling to work with the Republicans on any legislation.  They passed that monstrosity called Obamacare.  Legislation that doesn’t address healthcare at all.  It was designed for the Government Take-Over of the Health Care Industry.  Two Thousand pages of laws that will bind the American people into a spiraling money pit of generational debt.

Yet, Obama allowed No Compromise, No Republican Ideas, and Passed this crap sandwich against the will of the American people.  Just remind us again Obama: I Won

Now Obama is troubled by Republicans talking about Repeal of his Rotten Law.  GO Pound Sand Obama.

Obama reveals himself as the Lier in Chief.  Obama kept saying, “if you like your doctors, you can keep them”, “if you like your insurance, you can keep it”, all lies.  This is nothing more than the largest expansion of government into private industry.  This is the government taking over the entire health care industry.  What will happen?

We’re seeing the beginning of the deliberate collapse of the insurance industry.  Insurance rates are increasing because the government is manipulating the market.  We’re seeing the cost of medical equipment and supplies increase.  This was all part of the plan, to force out private insurance companies, and the government to control the manufacturers of medical equipment and supplies.

The government will soon, if it already hasn’t already done so, create an agency that will oversee the cost structure of Obamacare.  This will be the government agency that will decide whether you will get the care you need, or not.  This is your Death Panel.



Nothing else can be considered but full repeal of this legislation. This legislation that will increase the national debt, destroy industries, and degrade the worlds best health care system in the world, into a third world system of over-regulation government control.

None of the real issues to address the real problems with health care were ever addressed.  Tort reform, buying insurance across state lines, are just two key issues not addressed in Obamacare.  Children will be insured by their parents till the age of 26.  Well into young adulthood.  What about those under 26 families with three kids of their own?  That’s not uncommon here in Hawai’i.

Meanwhile, the government continues to spend itself into a massive financial hole that will effect everyone in America.  Anyone with a retirement plan will see that plan evaporate when either inflation or default happens.  It’s just a matter of time before this bubble bursts.



There has been talk by some politicians to work out the flaws in Obamacare.  The whole law is flawed.  It needs to be fully repealed.  Then we need to set real comprehensive health care.  No Compromise, no deals, Repeal Only.

It’s been a chilly week here in Puna, the days have been awash with constant rain and cold trade breezes.  So there’s nothing like a hearty bowl of Beef Stew to chase the chill away.

The Party Of Hate

Their hatred of this country is open and has been around for years.  Even now, they fabricate stories and make vile accusations without any truth to back up their claims.  They will not even recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

You can clearly hear someone from the audience ask, “Are we going to say the Pledge of Allegiance?”, and the moderator, someone from the League of Woman Voters, says “No, we are not..”.  The audience is having none of this and the whole auditorium started reciting the Pledge of Allegiance anyway.  Over the objections of the League of Woman Voters Moderator.

This is not the first time.  Members of the democrat party have omitted parts of the Pledge of Allegiance, deliberately.  Congresswoman Betty McCollum omits “Under God” while leading the Pledge on the House of Representatives floor.  Guess which party she belongs to?

This happened back in 2002, but it shows the systemic problems democrats have with the values of their country.  It shows the deep rooted hatred for anything patriotic that has a reference to God.

Remember that Obama omitted “Creator” the Declaration of Independence, not once, be many times.

Note the long painful pause before continuing on, Obama’s reading from his teleprompter, and he cannot bring himself to recite the Deceleration of Independence word for word.  Obama has called the Constitution imperfect and flawed.  Referring  to our founding documents as colonialism.


This has been part of the democrat problem.  History revisionist, taking the history of our country’s founding and deliberately distorting, and changing the factual events that had occurred.

It is apart of the psychology of entitlement.  You create a crisis, target an enemy, and smear either a group of individuals, or a single individual.  That has been the democrat way of doing business.

Defund The Racists


It’s time the United States Government got out the the business of funding Racists Organizations.  Both NPR and the NAACP have proven themselves to be racist organizations and their government funding should cease.

NPR’s decision to fire Juan Williams not only is racist in nature, but violates the First Amendment on Free Speech.

There is no need for government to fund a radio station that begs for money from corporations and the public.


This is the only recist organization which avails federal funding in the forms of grants and Loans.  Making it a Government supported racist organization.

Between these two racist organizations, your tax dollars are going to sponsor these groups.  Why do we need to subsidize a radio program, and why should we give grants to an openly racist organization?

The GOP needs to get it’s head out where the sun don’t shine.  The Democrats are all but lost socialists, Marxist and Communists, no help there anyway.

If the GOP cannot defund NPR and removed any funding to the NAACP, then they will never repeal Obamacare.

We will face that 1,000 years of Darkness.

Future Tense


Liberal Intolerance

National Progressive Radio

Radio Hate


True colors of extremism.  Purveyors of anti-free speech.  Political Correctness Police.  This is National Public Progressive Radio.  Yes, these are the people that call us, extreme.

Juan Williams was fired yesterday for speaking his mind, and he was fired for it.   This news is the conversation Du Jour.  NPR cannot see past the veil of political correctness.  Here’s what Juan said:

For his honest feelings, Juan Williams was fired from NPR.  Honest opinions are apparently unwelcome at NPR.  Juan Williams is a liberal reporter, but he is no bigot.  I disagree with Juan almost always, but I’ve always respected his opinion.  Juan is perhaps the only liberal journalist, that is a real journalist.  Unlike the wannabe’s at NPR.

What about you NPR people besmirching, insulting, and speaking the most hateful language against anyone that doesn’t  agree with your views.  Discourse in journalism is further destroyed by your Ted Kennedy’esque shrill excuse to punish a good reporter, for speaking his mind.  Does NPR expect any respect after this display of pure hatred?

Then, to make matters worse, the CEO of NPR makes a insulting comment saying; “whatever Juan says is between him and his Phychiatrist”.  OK, she apologized for that remark, but this is NPR’s culture, their mindset, the liberal intolerance of free thought.  Never mind NPR’s anti-Christian stand.

I hope Congress removes my tax dollars from this HATE GROUP, NPR.  Why don’t you call yourselves Radio Smear.  There’s absolutely no need for a government funded radio station anymore, particularly one with a openly Unconstitutional view of free speech, that’s being paid for by my tax dollars.

I listened to NPR, and mainly tolerated its open skew of news, because here, there is no other radio news outlet to listen to.  If you can really associate NPR with values and standards.  Now, its the NPR’s whore’s begging for money cycle, I hope people will not give to a obvious hate group.  They wouldn’t survive with out our 2% funding.

At Tokyo’s Digital Content Expo 2010, the HRP-4C robot sang and danced its way on stage.  This robot can cut the rug and belt out some tunes.  The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology brought out this marvel  of human design.  The robot has advanced features that mimic human facial and head movements.  It has a speech synthesizer called a Vocaliod that allows it to sing in lifelike human tones.   A remarkable technology.


More human than human.  The future of commerce?  I’m reminded of the movie Blade Runner where the lifelike Humanoid robots called Nexus 6 Replicants were so lifelike, that they blended into the population with ease.  However, in the movie, they became aware, sentient and conscious of who they were.  They sought out their makers.  They wanted more life.  Fiction, I know.  However, the humanization of robots is fascinating.

I don’t know why YouTube would allow posting of videos and then take them down.


Let’s try this one.

What the Nexis 6 Replicants lacked, were memories.

Want Higher Taxes Hawai’i? Vote Democrat


Democrats are planning to raise your taxes Hawai’i

If Neil Abercrombie and Brian Snottz (schatz), get elected as Governor, Lieutenant Governor; and Colleen Hanabusa, and Maise Hirona get reelected as State Representatives, District 1 and 2, respectively, of this Great State of Hawai’i, then your taxes will go up.  They promised to raise your taxes.  They’ve said so.  They have done so, and they will do so again, and again.  This is how democrats work.  They spend other peoples money.


Friends of Higher Taxes

Abercrombie, Schatz, Hanabusa, Hirono

Beware of these four, because they will raise your taxes in Hawai’i.   These democrats are Obama minions.  They don’t care about the people of Hawai’i, their constituents are the unions that are sucking the life-blood of jobs, and the money out of your wallets.  All four have an unimpressive records of achievement in public office.  In fact, they all voted for Obamacare.  They voted for Tax and Spend.  What else will they do to take more of your hard earned money?  None of them have ever run a business, made a payroll.  They are career politicians.  TICKS!

Abercrombie.  What has he done for Hawai’i during his years in Congress?  Nothing.  What will Abercrombie do for Hawai’i?  He will raise your taxes.  He claims that Furlough Fridays would not have happened under his watch.  Sure, because he would have raised your taxes to please the unions.

Brian Snottz just follows the leader.  Just like Abercrombie, he just follows the marching orders of Dan (Inyourway) Inouye.  Learning how to steal with only one hand.

Hanabusa and Hirono.  Oh please.  They gush over Obama like he’s the second coming of the Christ.  Like two little school girls, they have never demonstrated any real leadership, they just attack their opponents and follow the status qou as defined by Dan Inouye and Dan Akaka.  Free thinking is not allowed.

Accomplishments?  Because of these people, Hawai’i has the highest income taxes in the nation at 11%.  This is your tax dollars at work.  Don’t believe me, see the data for yourself.

Source: Grassroots Institute of Hawai’i

But that’s not the only source of excessive taxation by Hawai’i democrats.  Former Mayor of Honolulu, Mufi Hannemann, rammed through the Train to Nowhere project.  Build it, and no one will use it.  Light Rail has never worked, and the expenses to maintain such a project will eventually spill over from Honolulu onto the neighboring islands.  Can we really afford this?  We already have The Bus.  Why do we need Light Rail?  Let’s see how it’s working elsewhere.

Wacky Birkenstock Ideas

Who does the Light-Rail benefit?  Unions

The value of public transportation works only when it is of value to the local residents.  When does it benefit the working public?  And Not just the Public Unions?  However, the Unions stand to benefit from the construction of the rail.  During, and after, the completion of this economic behemoth, this money pit, this drain on resources, the taxpayers will end up paying the bills.  Don’t think the Unions won’t force local politician to raise taxes.



Can you believe this?  These are union people.  Whom do they care are about?  The greater good of the people?  Or themselves?  This entitlement mentality that feeds off the tax dollars of the American people.  If these people would only understand what damage they are doing to themselves, to everyone else, to America.  This is the way of socialism, the way of communism, this is totalitarianism.   This is your Hawai’i DemocRats!!!




Don’t Expect these DemocRats to do the right thing

Battle For America

“The Battle for America” is a no-holds-barred examination of an Administration and Congress that set out to “transform” America but ended up reenergizing grassroots Conservatives and lighting the fuse for a populist rebellion called “The Tea Party” movement. More than an indictment against the elitist governing class, this film’s inspiring message is also a call-to-action for every citizen to take back our country and return it to its core principles based upon a limited federal government.
