Virus restrictions are ‘insanity’
There are no active cases of COVID on the island. Why do we still have to stay home? Why do we still have to distance? Why do we still have to wear masks? Why do we still need to wash hands frequently and sterilize our homes? All of these things are actually bad for us. If I’m not sick and you’re not sick, how do our masks protect us from one another. Protect us from what? This is insanity!
The mayor is imposing unrealistic and unhealthy practices on free, American people. Not allowing people to work and provide food for their families is inhumane. He says we all just have to be kind, but he is not being kind by denying people the right to work. He just stands there and says we’re all in this together, but he’s not in this at all. He still has a job. Not for long, though, because without taxpayers, who will pay his salary?
Shame on the mayor, shame on the governor — for their selfish pursuits and for acting as dictators instead of servants to the people. I hope the people of Kaua‘i remember this when they go to the polls and do not vote for Kawakami.

All lives matter
In my opinion the BLM (Black Lives Matter) signs being held and those words being written on walls throughout our nation are doing more harm than good. It’s dividing the country into two segments — black and non-black. If demonstrations are going to be ongoing and signs are to be held, I would prefer the signs to say “All Lives Matter.”
