There always seems to be a but...life in prison doesn't solve overcrowding and tax dollars. A single bullet would solve both. I wonder who was behind abolishing the death penalty? Let me guess, liberals, ACLU and lawyers.
Equal rights. Women complain about men having more rights. Why should a woman have to cover her torso and a man doesn't. Can you imagine a women's march where they are all topless? Wow!! It seems they only march for things that are beneficial to them. Spread a little joy to the male population... free coconuts in the air.
Thank you all for reading and recommending my letter to the Graveyard Vandals in Wailuku.
The term "terrorism" would only be correct if the intention of the vandals were to make a religious or political statement, which may or may not be the case, but, I used iIt anyway. When I saw what had been done, and it was clearly not wind or an earth quake, my mind made connections to acts of cultural purging such as the Taliban's destruction of the Buddhas of Bamiyan and what ISIL did even more recently in Palmyra. Whether intentional or not, such an act of vandalism deprives us of a bit of this islands cultural heritage. Burial grounds are sacred.
I believe our mayor would agree on this point.
This felt deeper than other acts of vandalism to me, whether these vandals were self conscious or were on bath salts or whatever, it cut deeper than graffiti on the old stone bridge or a rock through the ex's windshield. This felt like a blow to the soul of us all and that is why I brought the term into the letter, albeit, somewhat recklessly.
I'm not opposed morally to capital punishment, but with the many appeals and hearings at our expense it isn't worth it.....and it lets them off too easy, I prefer we change it to life without parole in a supermax facility, somewhat cheaper and a more befitting punishment in some ways.
YES!!!! lower the level even more... it's a great idea!!!! You can buy all the alcoholic beverages you want and go home and drink it all in 5 minutes for all I care.... And stay there at home.... ZERO IZ BETA!!!!!!! For all including drugs..... Yes! Make more money more revenues off from those irresponsible monkeys..... And also raise the penalty to first offense minimum of 6 months in prison and lose their license for 5 years and pay a minimum fine of $ 25,000 and no less. And for second offense.. well, you all know where I'm leading too. ((NO CHANCE FOR THIRD)).......
Keep voting for the same party and this is what you get. There is never any balance in government here. The state government is broke because of pensions so they need to bleed all the residents to help finance the retirement of government workers. You get what you vote for.
Mahalo for supporting us regular folks Kaniela, I lost hope in Hawaii government, still think it's as corrupt as all heck, however, you bring a glimmer of hope. You have all our attention right now, you're doing good... please, don't ever let these smooth talking snakes (corporate & political) fool you into their lair (they're professional BSer's). Water imo is like air, without it we all die. Before you know it, they will want to put a price on the air we breathe too. Water is life, it's a gift from the heavens for all to share. We shouldn't deprive anyone water, especially if they're using it to produce food/subsistence to human life right here "for" Hawaii. If the other politicians don't back you up, then we all have our answer to who's not on the people's side, ALL those other politicians need to be voted out!
Without a comprehensive homeless policy in our community, our public spaces will continue to be defiled by filth, trash, human waste, and intolerable living conditions. Police need to enforce county laws against use of public spaces for camping, and enforce the law preventing the theft of private property such as shopping carts. If we do nothing, the island will fill up with homeless moving from Oahu and the mainland, at the cost of Maui tax payers.
