| | Aug 19 2017 - 12:06am | Comments

Ukraine is virtually an “anything goes” zone for American entrepreneurs — as well as for people like the North Koreans. That idea has been reinforced by news reports that a Ukrainian factory sold North Korea rocket engines for intercontinental ballistic missiles, which Pyongyang wants to arm with nuclear warheads so it can threaten the United States as well as peace in its region.

    Political cartoon was a lie

    NEW ORLEANS — During a week when we try to put aside our divisions to celebrate a shared love for our country, we should ponder that we are as badly fractured in approaching history as we are in confronting the present.

    PHILADELPHIA — Some American history museums belabor visitors with this message: You shall know the truth and it shall make you feel ashamed of, but oh-so-superior to, your wretched ancestors. The new Museum of the American Revolution is better than that. Located near Independence Hall, it celebrates the luminous ideas affirmed there 241 Julys ago, but it does not flinch from this fact: The war that began at Lexington and Concord 14 months before the Declaration of Independence was America’s first civil war. And it had all the messiness and nastiness that always accompany protracted fratricide.

    Pretend you are that most improbable of combinations — a lovable billionaire. In other words, you’re Warren Buffett. The politicians who worship guys like you have another treat in store: They will cut your most recent tax bill by $679,999, making you even wealthier.

    Water problem sign of loss of control

    I just read the most wonderful letter on the water restriction imposed on Kona. Of course, this letter was written by a most wonderful man and we are so fortunate that he chose to move to Hawaii where he knows how to solve our water challenges without knowing a thing about the problem.

    WASHINGTON — In its current iteration, the Republican Party truly seems to believe that the solution to every problem involves throwing more money at rich people. This explains the health care fiasco in the Senate, and it’s why President Trump and Congress have yet to address a single major problem the country faces.

    Water issue shows credibility problem

    For the past two weeks, I have read with outrage your stories on tax increases for Hawaii County. Instead of our local government officials spending time how to get by with less, they spend time on how to get by with more. More out of the pockets of people, who live on the west side of the county, is their source of revenue.

    Democrats these days must feel like Michael Dukakis, as famously played by Jon Lovitz in a debate with then-Vice President George H.W. Bush on “Saturday Night Live” when he said, “I can’t believe I’m losing to this guy.”
