Tropical Storm Felicia maintains its strength and its course toward Hawaii

and so what does the Advertiser Editorial board propose today? "Tap the hurricane fund, but keep it viable"  Just like the 9-1-1 fund?

Abercrombie fund shift raises concern

The state GOP said the congressman raised the money for a campaign for Congress, and that while federal and state campaign finance laws overlap, they are not identical. The party acknowledges that state law does not directly address the issue, but no previous Hawai'i political candidate has shifted federal money to a state campaign, and Republicans argue it would be improper.

Adv: Hawaiian federal recognition gets its shot

But there's never been quite the political momentum that exists right now to propel the measure, now called S. 1011, over the hump. And it's never been more important for supporters of the measure to add their weight to the push.

There is, for the first time in years, the practical possibility of achieving the 60 votes needed to shepherd the bill through to passage without the procedural blockade of a filibuster.

Hawai'i 's Congressional delegation as well as the Office of Hawaiian Affairs must work aggressively to cement that support in both chambers — a task more difficult for the Senate, with a thinner Democratic majority.

(Translation: OHA stop squabbling about amendments.)

Just in time for Akaka bill, another blast of Gramscian propaganda: Some Hawaiian activists reject statehood, saying it's a 'crime'

In 1959, what opposition there was to Hawai'i statehood was based on a variety of factors, from fears that communists had infiltrated the territory's labor unions to concerns that statehood would further disenfranchise its Native Hawaiian population allow those Communists to take over the judiciary and seize Campbell estate land.

(There is NOT continuity of opposition to Statehood.  This is one of the key lies being peddled by the Advertiser.)

Gramscian propaganda?  America has been drenched in Gramscian propaganda since 1968.  Read a couple of these articles and suddenly everything will make sense:

Scrapping cars a long task

Local dealerships have started turning in clunkers to be ground into bits of steel. However, many of the nearly 250 cars collected so far in Hawai'i through the "cash for clunkers" program have yet to be reduced to scrap due to the lengthy review process.

(If the Government has this much trouble junking cars, why would anybody trust them to operate a health care system???)

Funding loss slows 9-1-1 upgrades

Law enforcement officials want to upgrade the system so it can better pinpoint a wireless caller's location and keep up with fast-paced technology, including text messaging. This especially will help those who are hearing-impaired, allowing them to text information to dispatchers.

Upgrades to e911, however, could be limited because of restricted funding.

The state (DEMOCRAT LEGISLATURE) earlier raided e911 funds set aside for operations and maintenance, diverting $16 million to balance the budget. Remaining is about $9 million, the same amount as a state-imposed annual spending cap.

(9-1-1 emergency IS part of the health care system--and what did the legislature do?  Raid the funds to feed HGEA.)

Oahu drinking-water use down 7% since 2001

Demand down 7% since 2001, but most households aren't seeing lower bills.

Probable factors include the proliferation of water-saving devices such as low-flow toilets and showers, an ongoing decline in the state's agricultural sector and the higher prices.

Higher demand for bottled drinking water also was cited as a possible source.

Kauai police chief sued by his brother

Darryl Perry is one of more than 36 candidates to replace Boisse Correa as Honolulu police chief.  (Kiss that goodbye)

According to the defamation lawsuit filed by Warren Perry in Circuit Court on Kaua'i, Darryl Perry, Eugene Perry, Antone Perez Perry and others filed a groundless complaint with the Hawai'i Office of Disciplinary Council accusing him of concealing the fact that he used insurance settlement money to make repairs to a Perry family estate home in Lawai, Kaua'i, that was damaged by Hurricane Iwa in 1982 and Hurricane Iniki in 1992.

In his lawsuit against Darryl and the other Perry brothers, Warren Perry claimed the "frivolous ODC" complaint was leaked to the Kaua'i County Council in 2007, ruining his chances of becoming Kaua'i's county attorney.
