As the rest of the country moves forward with the election of Americans that are willing to face the true depth of the problems we face economically, financially, and globally, Hawaii changed up to a Caterpillar Excavator with a sweeping slate of democrats that leave so much to be desired as to inspire heavy drinking and depression. The bright side to what appears to be a dismal future is that democrats are on track to totally destroy Hawaii’s economy with higher taxes, bigger government, and new forms of corruption. Maybe, just maybe (and that’s a really big maybe), the moos might wake up next time around.
Former US representative and ‘Democratic Socialist of America’ Neil Abercrombie was elected as governor with a massive plan for more spending and bigger government. Mazie Hirono, a rubber stamp for the Obama progressive agenda and stalwart ACORN supporter retained her seat, and if the trend remains stable, she will continue to be elected by the uninformed and entitlement dependent moos until she dies. Note that 86 year old, Daniel Inouye won re-election again last night, and will be 92 years old when he goes for re-election yet again. Inouye was a founder of Central Pacific Financial who received $135 million in T.A.R.P. cash after Inouye’s office called bank regulators. Add to that, Inouye ‘is the chairman of the influential United States Senate Committee on Appropriations‘ and he became President pro tempore of the Senate when skeckzi Robert Byrd finally kicked the bucket.
As President pro tempore of the Senate, Inouye is third in the line of Presidential succession (behind the Vice President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives), and signs all bills that are passed by the Senate, before they are sent to the President of the United States to be signed into law or vetoed.
But here’s the kicker; what most people on the mainland do not understand is that Hawaii became a state in 1959. Inouye has been a Hawaii senator for 47 of the 51 years that Hawaii has been a state. How WRONG is that? Has not his 47 year tenure enabled him and his cronies to steer situations for their own profit SINCE THE STATE BECAME A STATE?
Wrong, wrong, wrong…but I digress.
Let’s move onto Colleen Hanabusa, the higher tax loving, freshman congresswoman that does not even live in the district she now represents after defeating Charles Djou last evening. It also appears that Hanabusa is following in Inouye’s deal-making steps:
Hanabusa and Souza at one time lived in an expensive Ko Olina townhouse bought by Souza from Stone after Hanabusa, a state senator who represents the Leeward Coast, championed a controversial $75 million tax credit for Ko Olina at the Legislature in 2002-2003.
In February 2005, less than two years after Souza bought the home, he sold it for a $421,000 profit, according to real estate records. Souza and Hanabusa, who were engaged at the time and married in 2008, then bought a $1 million home in another Ko Olina subdivision developed by Centex Homes of Texas.
That home, and the Ko Olina Resort, are actually in the 2nd Congressional District and Hanabusa is a candidate in the 1st District. District residency is not a legal requirement, although Hanabusa has said that, if elected, she would move to a new home inside the 1st District.
Now didn’t I say something earlier about stupid, entitlement-dependent moos?
Not every single candidate that won last night is on par with Allen West or Marco Rubio, but the universe’s balance of corrupt politicians and straight-shooters has to be met, and Hawaii is providing almost all of the corrupt quota in one shot. This will be our historic contribution to the republic; how not to run a state.
It’s obvious that Hawaiians have not yet hit their ‘hopey-changey’ rock bottom moment yet. They still believe there is a difference between Dems and Pubs, and that the democrats are going to take care of them. Lalalalalalalalalalalala…
