May Day Is Lei Day

It has nothing to do with neither communism, nor socialism.  It just is a day arriving from April showers to May flowers.  At the end of the week it’s Cinco de Mayo and I will be making Fajitas.  The sweet smell of success and freedom.

There is a romantic obsession with leftists to gravitate towards evil.  They wear Che t-shirts and hammer and sickle symbols, but they don’t know what it means because they have never lived in a communist world.  Even though the events in Cuba and Venezuela are western examples of what communism is, there are other eastern example where the reach of totalitarian rule is even worse.

In Arabic countries, slavery is open an accepted, yet ignored by western countries.  The United Nations, a bastion of leftist filth, approved Saudia Arabia to be included in a panel for women’s rights.  This is a society that forbids women from driving and traveling with out a male escort. There is a dress code for Arabic to be completely covered in a black burqa outfit under penalty of death.  That’s the left’s idea of freedom and equality.

Here in America, the left protests over freedom.  They outright reject freedom.  They embrace the idea of government control over the individual lives.  This slavery was all but eliminated worldwide, but is still practiced in other countries. Maybe it is because leftist don’t see, but feel emotionally.  They are easily convinced of perceived injustices that don’t exist in western culture.  It’s because the socialist society sees individualism as uncontrollable.  The left demonizes individual success as robbery of others, and supports robbing the successful to redistribute profits to those that never earned it.  It’s called social justice.  I call it socialism and evil.

The Organic Lie

organics

While perusing the local markets here in Hilo, I started thinking about Hawai’i County Bill 113.  The people who are for this terrible law claim that farmers should use organic methods for growing food.  Of course, most of those people are not farmers, they might have a garden where they grow a few tomatoes; but they are not farmers.

The organic movement is a sham, a farce, it is a flat out lie.  It is a scheme to charge people more money for less quality.  It’s a lot like Obamacare, where you pay more for health care insurance and then get denied medical care because it’s too costly.  Making food more expensive by calling it organic is just a cruel way of ripping off people, especially poor people.

2013-11-29 14.31.05

Besides the local farmers markets, we also have four large grocery chains on Hawai’i Island: Safeway, Food Land, KTA and Malama Markets.  All the stores have an organic section in their produce section.  The organic sections are basically ignored by the shopping public.  The picture above is the organic section in the Safeway store in Hilo.

2013-11-29 14.31.52

Here we have organic Yams at $2.49 per pound.  This is one single variety of Yams.

2013-11-29 14.32.10

Contrast that with non-organic Yams and Sweet Potatoes at $0.99 per pound. That’s two and a half times cheaper!

The non-organics are plentiful, larger, cheaper and in a taste test – no different!  The organic yams are two and a half times more expensive.  It’s no wonder why the organic sit on the shelves and rots.  Fruit flies buzz around the organic produce that is noticeably bruised  and over ripe.  Unattractive and too expensive to have any value, either economically or nutritiously.

What Bill 113 does is to take choice away from both the consumer and the farmer.  It is an unnecessary law that was crafted by ignorant anti-corporate, anti-people, liberal loons.  It’s pure socialism disguised as progressivism.  It has nothing to do with science, technology, economic development; it has everything to do with big overreaching government.  It plays on the ignorance of people’s fears with false science.

In fact, there has never been a single credible scientific study showing GMOs to have harmful effects on humans, animals or our environment. But scientific consensus hasn’t stopped activists from demanding mandatory labeling on all genetically modified foods. Yet there already exists an effective and uniform way for consumers around the country to identify non-GMO products: the presence of a USDA-certified organic label.

Read more here!

However, you cannot change the mindset of the ignorant.  They do not want to listen to facts.  They only attack what they do not want to understand.  It’s isn’t so much about GMO’s, as it is more about the effort to damage American companies by communists extremists.   Who cares if low income people and the poor can’t afford to buy the food they need to feed their families!  Who cares if farmers cannot make money growing crops of their choice, and using the technology of  their choice!  Idiots dance with joy that their freedom are being chipped away!

It’s all about equality with these people.  Equal suffering for all and liberty for none!  So the next time you are in a grocery store purchasing produce and you’re wonder why the cost of living in Hawai’i is so high?  Thank a Liberal!

Friday Night Rant : Our Brave New World

responsibility

Enjoy the pictures and let me whine to you about the events in the news of today.  The irony, the logic, and the emotion, that governs our lives.  Maybe it’s how the news is presented today!  The amount of information, really accurate information, is really hard to get at.  So here’s what I do know!

lagoonView

In this country we have several ongoing scandals going on, both political and social, but to the degree of sorting the information as relevant to either your daily life, or as trends to be wary of.  In other words, does this information mean anything to you the reader?  Do you even care?

Government Banned Plastic Bags in Hawai’i

Si vis pacem, para bellum”, is Latin for “If you want peace, prepare for war”.  It seems perfectly apt regarding this regime’s effort to eliminate the second amendment rights granted to all Americans by the United States Constitution.  You know, that document the English twit on CNN calls “your little book”! But lies are the only truths that socialist democrats know; even when Vice President Joe Biden made bizarre claims about hearing guns committing crimes, and just like Notre Dame star Football player Manti Te’o make believe girlfriend, its all lies.

During the National Rifle Association’s meeting with Vice President Joe Biden and the White House gun violence task force, the vice president said the Obama administration does not have the time to fully enforce existing gun laws.

I suppose you get the government you voted for.  They never read the bills, and they don’t enforce existing laws; No, it’s easier to make more laws because that’s what we’re paying them to do!  What a waste!

Hilo

I write to you on this Aloha Friday, under blue sunny skies with cotton-like clouds slowly drifting overhead.  A slight cool breeze moves the bamboo wind chimes creating a sweet subtle melodic rhythm.  I’m listening to KHNR 690 AM, a News Talk radio station from Honolulu.  I have to listen to the station on the internet because the “over the air” signal strength is low for good reception in my geographic area.

It’s just after 11AM on this glorious Kakahiaka (Morning) and now slipping into “Awakea”  (Late morning, nearing Noon).  Currently, it is 76° degrees, partly cloudy winds out of the north with gusts of 12MPH.  Humidity is 63% and steady.  The cloud cover is 35% which makes the UV index a 6, that’s just below midpoint on the scale of low to high.

Another attack on the Tea Party, this it is by time by outgoing failed Labor Secretary Hilda Solis.  Apparently, the regime’s policies are not the blame for the high unemployment and why more people aren’t working.  The policies of this regime have slowed the economy to a standstill.  Yet, she uses Obama’s strategy of blaming others for their lousy policies.

Quoting Labor Secretary Hilda Solis: Solis also said that in many ways the Obama administration “did not get the kind of support we needed originally when he took office for the American Recovery Act funds” and blamed “a small group known as the Tea Party movement” for not engaging with the president and “hurting the American public, our economy, and the future of our country.”
Read more here:

So here is the quandary, what exactly did the Tea Party do to prevent job growth?  All we did was ask for limited government, which has been responsible for slowing the economy and the high unemployment rate.  All we asked for is for low taxes, so we could invest in creating jobs; the only jobs being created are government jobs.  How sustainable is that?  Growing government and raising taxes only reduces private industry job growth.  All we asked for was less regulations so we can expand our businesses and create jobs.  So what does Obama do?

environment

Obama’s gave an Executive Order for pay raises: Under an executive order issued by President Obama on Thursday, members of Congress will join federal workers in seeing their pay rise by 0.5 percent after March 27.

That’s your tax dollars paying your government’s salary.  How much do they get paid?

Congressmen and senators make $174,000 a year and will see an extra $900 in their annual pay packages before taxes next year.

DSCN0863

Actually, many of our Congress people make much more than that.  Some have used the power of their office to enrich themselves greatly.  Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters are just two of the most corrupt socialist democrats that have used legislation to enrich members of their families and spouses.  So with a wave of Obama’s pen, he commands an increase to these corrupt politicians salaries.

Maybe the good news is that the GOP, and probably with the help of those pesky Tea Party people, are demanding a proper budget with spending cuts or deny Congress their pay.  Seems fair to me!

“We are going to pursue strategies that will obligate the Senate to finally join the House in confronting the government’s spending problem. The principle is simple: no budget, no pay.”  House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said in a statement Friday.  Has the GOP grown a pair of bolus?

“Next week, we will authorize a three month temporary debt limit increase to give the Senate and House time to pass a budget. Furthermore, if the Senate or House fails to pass a budget in that time, Members of Congress will not be paid by the American people for failing to do their job. No budget, no pay.”

It’s about time don’tcha think?  But will the Republicans cave like they usually do?

Well, it’s coming up on 10PM HST and ‘Aina awakea (lunch) was ono (good)!  Plus Red Eye is coming on Fox TV!  As I scourer the internet for news, I am bombarded by stories of legislators rushing to provide that emotional cork on the tragic Sandy Hook event.  New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo made an emotionally disturbing demand and got legislation that makes the State of New York the toughest gun controls in the nation.  Like most socialist democrats, they fail to read and comprehend the law they are writing.  As a result:

But because no loophole for law enforcement was included in the law, every police officer in the state is technically in violation of the statute

Read more here:

sentinals

Is this a good example of bad governance or what!  Desperate to do anything, but think about what they are doing, New York State enacted a law that puts their own law enforcement in violation of the law.  They didn’t read their own law, they didn’t think of what they were crafting.  Waste of tax dollars, but that’s New York State, a bastion of liberal rule.  Heavily in debt and taxes, New York is the East Coast example of California, whereas the population and businesses are dwindling and leaving for greener pastures.

Then there are the 23 unconstitutional Executive Orders that Obama issued this week to curb gun violence.

These are our kids.  This is what they’re thinking about.  And so what we should be thinking about is our responsibility to care for them, and shield them from harm, and give them the tools they need to grow up and do everything that they’re capable of doing — not just to pursue their own dreams, but to help build this country.  This is our first task as a society, keeping our children safe.  This is how we will be judged.  And their voices should compel us to change.

If that were true, abortion would be illegal.  Are we as a society going to draw the distinction between the two tragedies? Both are taking a life, it’s just the means on how it is done.  There are 1.2 Million abortions done in the United State’s every year.  Are these children any less worthy than the ones taken at Sandy Hook, or anywhere else for that matter?  As a society, our first task to keep children safe, said Obama.  I guess that doesn’t apply to “all” children, just some children.  Is it because the killing is done behind the antiseptic walls of make believe healthcare facility and not by the hand of a crazed killer where everyone can see?  If we are going to apply that liberal logic in its literal sense, then we would all be hypocrites.

greetingEvening

It’s funny though; there are people that would fight to prevent the death of a dog or cat at the humane center, rather than the abattoir that is Planned Parenthood.  It is funny though; our government gave the same guns they don’t want Americans to have to Mexican drug lords.  The same guns that have killed thousands of Mexicans and several Americans, including an American border guard.  Then there is the Benghazi tragedy which has never been answered.  Why did this regime and the media ignore such a event?  I guess Obama and his regime believes the lives of those people are not as worthy as the children of Sandy Hook.  Now that Obama has issued 23 Executive Orders to restrict Americans from owning firearms, I wonder if the Mexican drug lords won’t use the weapons they got from our government against Americans.  Who will cry for them?

Holder’s and Obama’s desire to continually hide these Fast and Furious documents is “ironic” now that they’re so gung-ho on gun control. “It is beyond ironic that the Obama administration has initiated an anti-gun violence push as it seeking to keep secret key documents about its very own Fast and Furious gun walking scandal,”

coastline

I see our society going down the wrong path.  There seems to be an emphasis on the destruction of family and religion by the government.  By introducing restrictions on people’s conscience and religious beliefs and forcing people to accept immorality as commonplace.  Even calling Pedophilia acceptable!

Is it absolute madness to even consider such behavior, but like any immoral behavior, a corrupt lifestyle is being pushed onto society. You must accept this behavior as mainstream, or else, you are called a bigot. Even so far as to call such activity, a Civil Right.  Accept immorality or be labeled a bigot.  Those are your only choices!  Conform or be called an extremist! Another example is in the Affordable Patient Care Act where a child can get free sterilizations, even without parental consent.

Thanks to an Obamacare regulation that took effect on Aug. 1, health care plans in Oregon will now be required to provide free sterilizations to 15- year-old girls even if the parents of those girls do not consent to the procedure.

 Yet, you are led to believe that the Republicans have a war on women.  How do you define what war is then?

teaParty5

Yet, we are told by those dictating what morality is and how it should be, and how we as a society will be judged.  There’s no confusion when it comes to prolife issues, but in this society, abortion is called prochoice.  Except it’s not really a choice for the unborn is it?  Still, the outrage over Sandy Hook like tragedies tends to take the attention away from real society ills.  How often do such tragedies happen?  How could it have been prevented?  Questions that may never be answered; however, the weight of such tragedies against what could be prevented is ignored and considered commonplace.

one in a million

One in a Million!

I do pray for this society that preys on the helpless, and then call it, “a choice“.  It is a choice, as with all choices, is it a wise choice?  We are destroying our future, our society and our morals; sounds depre4ssing doesn’t it?!  History is repeating itself, there is no doubt about that.  What brave new world have we have again brought ourselves into?

4 Years After

What If Obama Was Reelected?  How might things change in the United States by 2016?  Would we still recognize the United States?

I am listening to the Republican speeches on the cable news because the Big 3 Dopes, ABC, CBS and NBC have decided to limit their coverage of the convention.  However, I am also watching the Democrat convention scheduled for the first week of September, and there is a disturbing event that seems to be unfolding.  It involves a group called BIMA or Bureau Of Indigenous Muslim Affairs.  This flyer has been circling the Internet from their website.

Notice on the poster the Conference Issue (center right of poster).  Islamaphobia, Mashd zoning laws, Anti Sharia bills, Patriot Act, NYPD surveillance and NDAA.

So I went to the DNC website to see the schedule of events, and I I’m still looking for any mention of it.  However, the blogsphere exploded with reputable first newsers that started posting these links about the event.  The DNC hasn’t denied it as far as I know.

Hmmmm, where is the Islamic community?

This pull-down menu of communities on the DNC website set my curiosity.  It does go along with the Democrat party’s platform of racial division and support for extremist groups.  They’ve divided people into categories, into special interests groups, marginalizing the electorate into a multicultural soup of intolerance.  Yet, all this week the DNC operatives and the News media would have you believe the Republicans are all extremists.

 

 

Let’s assume for the moment that this Islamic event is real and the Islamic platform of Sharia Law is adopted by the DNC.  That would be in line with this regimes policy.  We can imagine what new world the United States would be once Sharia Law replaces the U.S. Constitution.

Public schools would be turned into Saudi style Madrassas.  Men and women would be forbidden to comingle under penalty being stoned to death.  Women would be forced to wear the burqa.  Honor killings would be common place within families.  Morality police would roam around shopping malls looking for any violation of Sharia law.  The LGBT community, well, that’s rather problematic isn’t it?

 

 

Churches, Synagog’s and Temples would be replaced with Mosques.  Religious practices other than Islam would be taxed and regulated by the Islamic Caliphate government.  Non-Islamic people would be required to wear identifying clothing that reflects their religion.  There will be two highway systems, the Islamic way and Infidel way.  Infidels caught violating Islamic Sharia Law would be harshly punished.

 

 

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser warns about this group and their connection to Islamic extremist groups.

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a devout Muslim and the Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, wrote:

The leaders of this event – Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj [are not] moderates. They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.

A quick Google search by the DNC would have shown them that Hough and Wahhaj are leaders in the separatist American Islamist movement. While they may be able to get a few thousand Muslims to attend the event, they are NOT going to be mainstream Muslims.  Most will likely come from Hough and Wahhaj’s radical networks that have long been entrenched in the Charlotte area. Make no mistake they are part of the Islamist movement.

Their jummah (group) prayer is…about empowering their Islamist and MB sympathetic groups into the very fabric of the political system so that Americans become anesthetized. We need American Muslims to speak up and marginalize these radicals. The DNC needs to understand and reject them because of their radical history and ideas.

What does “Indigenous” Muslim Affairs mean?  Indigenous to where?  Why isn’t there an indigenous community in the DNC?  What kind of message is the DNC boasting?  More questions than answers.

May Day Is Lei Day

In Hawai’i, May 1st is Lei Day.  It was two writers from the Honolulu Newspaper “Ka Hoku Buletina” (Star Bulletin) Grace Tower Warren and Don Blanding who came up with the idea of a holiday on May 1 in conjunction with May Day.  Grace Tower Warren is also credited for the phrase, “May Day is Lei Day.”  The first Lei Day was held on May 1, 1928.  Musicians Leonard “Red” and his wife Ruth wrote the song “May Day is Lei Day” and it has been a tradition ever since!  We celebrate with family, friends, great food and great music!

While we celebrate Lei Day with flowers, parties, parades, good food and music.  The socialist democrats along with Obama’s army of Occupy Wall Street protestors are busy causing property damage, violating the law, raping people, defecating on the streets, and even murdering people.  This is the definition of what the Soviets call “Useful Idiots”!

Rep. Col. Allen West during an interview with CNN, the Communist News Network, said he knows of about 80 members of Congress that are communists.  Although, Rep. Col. Allen West didn’t actually name names, it is pretty obvious who the communists are.  The Progressive Caucus is made up entirely of communists.  The Congressional Black Caucus is either mostly all communists, or racist fools.

While we celebrate, Obama and his socialist minions are laying the ground work for class warfare and class envy!  While we welcome and embrace all cultures, Socialist Democrats are plotting race warfare.  May Day has been the communist slave (workers) holiday where an Oligarchy government of central planners try and convince the populace that they will grant their every wish!  Socialism has never worked, and this regime is trying to convince the American people that capitalism never worked.   That is simply a lie, and the present state of the economy should be proof enough for that.  They are desperate to hold onto their power and they will say anything to convince you so.

You see, this is what Marxism is all about!  Hating and envy of others!  Despising success!  We know who the Occupy leadership is!  But who are the Occupiers?  Unions, that are losing their control over institutional slavery, and College Students indoctrinated with the lies of socialist dogma.  They claim economic disparity, but they are unwilling to face the facts that this regime has made life worse for them.  Instead, they are being led like a donkey by the proverbial carrot on a stick.  They are willing to do the bidding of a false deity that continues to promise everything, but delivers nothing.  A false prophet that continues to blame everyone and everything his failed policies have brought.  Are they that stupid to believe that government can provide the solution to everything?  We will know tomorrow!  Stay tuned!

USA Now A Racial Slur

National Pride and sportsmanship has reached a new low!  Chanting USA! USA! USA!  Now considered racist.

Apologizing for chanting USA!  Are people that sensitive to national pride that they have to equate it to racism?

This has got to be the largest load of Bull Hockey I’ve ever heard of.  We don’t teach civics in school any more.  We don’t teach American History anymore.  We don’t teach trade skills anymore.  We’re too worried about offending everyone, but ourselves.  We are becoming a nation of wussies!  Political correctness run amuck!

But we are racially sensitive to others that don’t consider themselves American.

As an immigrant to this great country, I am ashamed!

There is no where else in this world to go.  To live free.  To have opportunities.  All to see it go to waste because some moron was offended by chanting USA.  You are destroying this country from within!
