“The risk of complacency and perceived arrogance by incumbent candidates can often be their downfall.”
Talking about yourself, huh Gary? Remember when you said “Bite me!” TWICE on television to one of Kauai’s Legislative Representatives? No denying those words. And you’re advising others on politics? No wonder you’re back on Kauai. Failed in Honolulu.
Manawai or whatever your name is. I really encourage you to seek anger-management counseling and activities that will make a more positive use of your time. I have never said anything like that on television once, let alone twice. Please do not make things up. I know you will probably say “I think I read it on the internet so it must be true…”. But alas it is not. Why must you personally attack me which is violation of TGI’ comment posting criteria. Do you have anything meaningful to discuss, or is your life so miserable that you are doomed to spending your days in front of a computer screen making anonymous comments? It is a gorgeous day outside! Go to the beach! Take a walk and smell the roses! But in all seriousness, were there particular parts of my piece that you enjoyed more than others, or perhaps sections/parts that you would like to debate or discuss as two intelligent people trying to learn from each other? I do appreciate the fact that you are reading my weekly column. Perhaps with time we can develop a more positive online discussion?
It is all always about the money, We are not able to manifest our freedom due to the undeniable takeover via the u.s. militaropolitical which MaunaKea recent results show, that we are again dismissed, kicked to the curb and Hawaiians are not in the mix. In fact, the powers that be want to eliminate Hawaiians altogether, not to mention all of our artifacts and places that are too special for the normal american citizen to wrap their heads around. Truth and integrity will prevail, not the song and dances that keep us prisoners, victims, and afraid for our lives and that of our precious keiki.
Over $900,000.00 spent to get elected…all these people telling us what they like do, but not one of them asking us what we want them to do for us and will they do it.
If you sign an election contract with the people saying what you will do for what we want…you should have no need to spend any money on the election because we going vote for who is going to do what we want.
“Also shocking was this report on Councilman Gary Hooser’s behavior at the House committee meeting, which was left last night on a comment on a recent post, and confirmed this morning:
at today’s pesticide buffer zone bill hearing before the house ag committee, hooser rudely directs ag chair tsuji to let the neighbor island guys outside the conference room to testify. ag committee member tokioka goes on to tell hooser, “relax gary we got this.” hooser replied, “BITE ME!” in amazement tokioka asks “what did u say?” hooser replies, “BITE ME, JIMMY!” damn, that hooser lost his marbles
Wow. Such wildly inappropriate behavior, especially when Gary is presenting himself as a representative of the Kauai County Council.”

Manawai (Why not just use your real name?), You are seriously going to use as proof…an anonymous comment on a blog written by a woman who does not even live on Kauai and hasn’t for some time? Do you believe all anonymous comments on all blogs? Ah…I see. This is why you post anonymous because you are hoping someone might believe you also. I get it! So…when I predicted that you would say “It must be true, I read it on the internet…”…Voila! You prove me right! Please, get out of the house and away from that keyboard. There is a life out there that you should try to enjoy! PS – You can google “Voila” if you are interested in knowing what it means.
Ha ha, whenever I read anything by Mr. Hooser I am sure to put my knee high manure boots on.
LOL! That brought out the true Hooser! Now who’s claiming anger issues?
