YouTube and Facebook delete material posted which questions the efficacy of vaccinations and the current government approach to the coronavirus outbreak.
Qualified experts who question the origin of the coronavirus are ignored and ridiculed. Experts who state that there is evidence that the virus was engineered in a laboratory are similarly ignored and ridiculed.
Qualified experts who have suggestions of how to contain an outbreak without inflicting lockdown on the entire population are ignored and ridiculed.
Experts who question the accuracy of testing for a coronavirus by testing for DNA sequencing alone are ignored and ridiculed.
Governments wildly exceed their constitutional rights in controlling an outbreak. Citizens who question this are ignored, ridiculed and suppressed.
Fear of an illness is greatly played upon so that populations will agree to government actions which ordinarily would be resisted.
Police actions exceed constitutional rights. For example, people are told to go home while sitting alone in their car at the beach.

‘Kaua‘i Passport’ proposed for visitors
Kaua‘i has done a remarkable job thus far with containing the spread of COVID-19. Kudos to Mayor Kawakami and his administration. Now that we are slowly starting to reopen businesses, a larger question remains. How will we restart our tourism business without jeopardizing all of our collective hard work to contain the virus?
Should we require a COVID-19 test of all persons entering Kaua‘i? A test could be required either prior to boarding the plane or at the Lihu‘e Airport, once a reliable test is available with a quick turn-around time. Entering guests with a current test could be allowed to enter Kaua‘i unrestricted. Those who fail the test or don’t have one would be subject to the existing 14-day quarantine.
In addition to requiring a test, why not issue a numbered “Kaua‘i Passport” and limit the number issued each month? It could be electronic on your phone or paper. We could determine how many tourists we want each month and only issue that number of Kaua‘i Passports. We could also charge a fee for the passport and use that money for testing and contact tracing.
For enforcement, all hotels and vacation rentals could require potential guests to provide their Kaua‘i Passport number when making a reservation. A quick check on a new secure Kaua‘i website could confirm for the potential host that a valid Kaua‘i Passport existed for that guest. A substantial fine could be levied for anyone hosting a guest without the required passport. Kaua‘i residents would be exempt from the passport requirement.
