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.

Hot industry in Hawaii: Social assistance

Survey ranks Hawaii low in job growth


Hawaii will be one of the hardest places in the nation to find a job, according to a new ranking by the Daily Beast.

The Web site said it ranked states based on 2006-2016 employment projections prepared by each state’s labor department, and updated them using national employment projections through 2018.

The site also weighed the actual change in employment for each state from 2006 to 2009, the current unemployment rate, the median individual salary for each state and growth industries.

Based on those measurements, Hawaii ranked No. 40 among the states.

The Daily Beast posted the following statistics about Hawaii:

Jobs gained 2006-2009: 13.4 percent
Current unemployment: 6.8 percent
Employment growth through 2018: 6.8 percent
Median individual salary: $30,071
Hot industry: Social assistance

Wyoming was ranked the best in the nation with a projected 22 percent employment growth through 2018, while Michigan was the worst with 6.4 percent employment growth over the next eight years.
