Case highlights time in Washington, forgets to mention ineffectiveness
By News Release @ 2:50 PM :: 5010 Views :: Maui County, Education K-12, Energy, Environment, National News, Ethics

Ed Case has been ranked as one of the most ineffective members of Congress: “Two members of Congress ranked as some of the least effective – Rep. Ed Case [D- Hawai'i] and Sen. Dan Akaka [D- Hawai'i] – are battling over who has the worse rating on a national political Web site.” (Richard Borreca, “Case to Akaka, Akaka to Case: You’re ineffective,” Honolulu Star-Bulletin, 08/29/06).

Full Text: Governor Lingle on ‘Island Insights’
By Gov. Linda Lingle @ 2:16 PM :: 3421 Views :: Energy, Environment

Have you seen more Republicans in the fall elections in office?

I do.  I think this is going to be a very good year to run for the State Legislature as a Republican, and I think it's because legislators have really ignored the major issue of the day, which is job creation, and we've given them a whole series of great proposals on how to stimulate the economy through job creation, and instead they have spent much too much time on things like cock fighting and marijuana stores and other issues that might be important to a small number of people.   It's not to say they are not important but a leader has to say, you know what, we're going through the worst fiscal crisis in state history, our economy needs to be rebuilt, we just can't take up cock fighting right now.

Welcome to the Obama Dependency Economy
By Heritage Foundation @ 1:46 PM :: 2237 Views :: National News, Ethics

Today the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor and Statistics released its monthly jobs report showing that the nation's unemployment is 9.7% for the third month in a row. While the jobs report does indicate that 162,000 net jobs were created in March, almost 50,000 of those jobs were temporary government Census jobs that do not reflect any real economic progress. In total, the U.S. economy has now lost a total of 3.8 million jobs since President Barack Obama signed his $862 billion stimulus plan. We are 8.1 million jobs short of the 138.6 million he promised the American people.

By News Release @ 1:36 PM :: 3311 Views :: National News, Ethics

...When private investment declines, taxpayers will be forced to step in and subsidize broadband Internet, with lots of strings attached. And regulations could eventually even restrict political speech online.

HSTA spreads “non-essential” falsehoods to manipulate DoE employees
By News Release @ 5:29 PM :: 5209 Views :: Maui County, Education K-12, Energy, Environment

Honolulu – Thursday, April 1, 2010 "I'm very disappointed that the HSTA leadership, BOE, and DOE allow the general public, parents and classroom teachers to believe incorrect information," said Minority Leader Lynn Finnegan.

"I'm hearing that teachers are under the impression that front office staff, nurses, cafeteria workers, special education assistants, janitors and security are on the non-essential employees list. This is simply not true," stated Finnegan.

VIDEO: Hanabusa campaign ad nailed for Legislative pay raise “deception”
By Andrew Walden @ 12:54 PM :: 5524 Views :: Ethics, Hawaii State Government, Politicians

With the media picking up on this big story, maybe they will start asking Hanabusa about the firing of Margery Bronster, or her meeting with Larry Mehau, or the land deal with a member of the Pali Shooter’s gang, or the Honolulu Raceway deal.

$8/gallon? Don't Fall For Obama's Energy Shell Game
By Heritage Foundation @ 12:04 PM :: 2618 Views :: National News, Ethics

So if developing new energy sources that can create private sector jobs for Americans and new revenues for financially strapped states and the federal government is not the Obama administration's real goal, then what is? Well, President Obama's Energy Secretary Steven Chu, who was at yesterday's announcement, has said, "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe." For reference purposes, when Secretary Chu said that, Europeans were paying $8 a gallon for gas at the pump.
