Welcome to the American Revolution II

Welcome to the American Revolution II
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
"We face a hostile ideology global in scope, atheistic in character, ruthless in purpose and insidious in method..." and warned about what he saw as unjustified government spending proposals and continued with a warning that "we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex... The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist... Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."Dwight D.

City Needs to Recommit to Protect Ka Iwi
By Gary E. Weller, 1/30/2009 9:35:44 AM

The Honolulu Advertiser's opinion (Jan. 29) regarding Ka Iwi is best said in their headline "Let future generations enjoy Ka Iwi's beauty" -

To that end we now have the state's pledge to do their part via Lingle's administration seeking reclassification of 240 acres of makai Ka Iwi land now what about the City?

Can we count on them to uphold their position regarding attempts to build "vacation cabins" on the mauka Ka Iwi lands?

We can only hope that the City administration stays the course and will not waiver from their past three rulings of NO to vacation cabin chaos which opens Pandora's box to similar types of development on preservation type 2 lands throughout O'ahu.

A few years ago the Mayor came to a town hall meeting held at Kaiser HS where over 300 residents attended -- he stood before us and vowed his support and help to keep Ka Iwi open. His new DPP director, we hope, will not falter. Only time will tell the truth behind the Mayor's pledge --
