Democrats are ruining our state, country

For the past several weeks I’ve been reading the opinion letters as everyone argues the facts of allowing same-sex marriages, and how the governor is ignoring the ballot results, which the state’s people voted down the question to allow these marriages. So now he wants to spend tax dollars to hold a special legislative session to circumvent the residents’ wishes.

Well, I hate to inform the residents of Hawaii, that your state is run by Democrats, and if you have not been paying attention to Washington, they do anything they want to, when they want to, and they don’t care what you or anyone else thinks about it. However the sad thing is, the left-wing Democrats of this country just keep drinking the Kool-Aid, and going along with what ever the leaders, be it state or federal, throw out there for them to believe.

So the next time you get to vote on an issue or for a person, you might stop and think about what the current Democrat-run state and federal government is doing to this once great country and this magnificent state. Not to mention how many criminal acts they have gotten away with in the last six years. A perfect example is the leaders on Oahu ignoring how a private company is illegally dumping “nonhazardous” waste in a residential neighborhood.

You, as voters, need to remember, it’s not what you know, but who you know. Oh, and of course how much money you can throw at the Democrats running for office. If you by chance think that standing on the side of the road waving protest signs will stop these tyrants, you would be wrong.

With that being said, we also need to keep an eye on the national politics as well, because I’m not really sure if the general American pubic realizes how close this country came to an all out war because of your tyrant president and vice president. Although I’m sure my father will roll over in his grave when I say this, but thank you Mr. Putin for putting the president of the United States in his rightful place, and stopping World War III, even though Barack Obama took full credit for it.

Can the news

get much worse?

Every day, the news gets worse for our planet. Global warming already upsets the weather patterns and causes droughts, storms and flooding.

Now the news about the acidification of the ocean is just more proof that we, humans are destroying our planet. It’s now beyond despair. Yesterday, it was the molasses spill in Honolulu, today it’s the acidification of the pristine South Pacific Ocean. Mankind is certainly winning the battle for self-annihilation.
