Clean up unsightly display in Kapa‘a

To begin with, the presidential election was held in November of 2020. The last guy received only 214 votes and Biden got 273 votes on the electoral college. The popular vote was won also by Biden by approximately 7 million votes.

In other words, the last guy in his own words lost billy. He failed in 60 some lawsuits to overturn the results, so he tried to have his followers overthrow government of these United States. Even his lawyer, who’s being sued for her lies, now says a reasonable person wouldn’t believe her assertion that there was widespread voter fraud in the election.

It’s now been over three months since the election, and daily I am subjected to his campaign propaganda and lies.

Please, whoever is responsible for this trashy mess in Kapa‘a near the Texaco — this is the “Garden Island.” Malama the ‘aina please, and clean up your trash.

Michael Curtis, Kapa‘a

To the ‘heroes’ at the COVID clinic at convention hall

I will like to express my gratitude to the heroes taking care of vaccination at the Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall. Many of them are volunteers who are helping the Kaua‘i community. It felt very refreshing and safe when Dr. Andy Sorota (orthopedic surgeon) assisted me at the moment that I didn’t feel at my best after my first vaccine shot.

Big mahalo.

Ximena Hoffman, Po‘ipu

    I’m in agreement with you Michael Curtis. Who puts up a memorial for a LOSER?! The answer is Unpatriotic sore losers
    who still believe the Lie. It’s sad we have these kind of folks on our Rock.

      Mike Curtis You are totally right and I back you up 110%

    The weight of the cross of victimization must be a terrible burden for you Mikey.

    Thank you Michael Curtis. We have a sign ordinance don’t we? We have regulations about removing election materials and banners. The trashy chain link fenced is monument to a democracy destroying liar who claimed our voting procedures are fake and false and so should be overturned. It must be removed.

    Regarding Mr Curtis’ complaint about the “unsightly display in Kapaa”. It’s on private property and protected by the US Constitution’s Freedom of Speech. As for the failed lawsuits, the Supreme Court refused to hear these lawsuits, though the evidence was overwhelming and compelling. If you don’t like the sign, look at the road. It’s what you should be doing anyway.

      Is this the same Supreme Court dominated by conservatives with 3 Trump appointees? Gee, I wonder why they wouldn’t hear these cases. Maybe because they were such crap even the conservatives laughed at them?

      Kauai Voter,
      If you feel the need to exercise your 1st amendment right to free speech, then you should have the courage to sign your name to it as our founding fathers did. Anonymity is where the cowards reside.

    Awe…poor Mike. He can’t stand being reminded that the greatest President in our lifetimes is mentioned on a sign. Now every time Mikey goes to a gas station, every time he has to pay his taxes (doubt he pays any), and any time he looks at the job and illegal immigration numbers, he is reminded that President Trump was a hero for the intelligent among us, who actually work for a living. I hereby ask the owners and purveyors of the wonderful memorial in Kapaa to keep it up! Better yet, let’s take up a collection and turn it into a 15 ft. high statue in our President’s honor. You’ll have millions of people donate! For those with a similar Trump Derangement Disorder, please know that real Americans will help you, and they feel so sorry for you because they know you will be the hardest hit in the Socialist quagmire you have brought upon yourselves. But please know that Trump will be back to save you. Until then, will live rent free in your rather empty heads.

      Trump will be back… to ask you for more donations. Send him your money! I honestly hope he does come back. Last time he was “here” he helped Democrats win back the House, then the White House and the Senate! What a truly impressive record for a one-term *president! So much winning!

    I see that TDS is still alive as a partner mental illness to liberalism. Both can be cured!

    1. james March 30, 2021 7:33 am Reply

      I thought TDS was where deranged Trump supporters still think he was a good President and think he will somehow become President again.

        You are correct James….They can’t keep up!

    To Michael Curtis, the only trash about the proclamation and support fort truth is the graffiti that the “offended” ones seem to need to dispense. If your choice is all that you pretend he is then what’s your sniveling about?

    Nothings Free, Yucaljoe and Patrick Flores. please show some respect and stop attacking people for their opinions and beliefs. You would expect the same. People are getting nasty and disrespectful. Neither party is the answer, but each has positive contributions. Stop attacking people you believe to be ‘Liberals’. Look towards the future and don’t dwell on the reality of the past.

    1. YuCalJoe March 30, 2021 8:29 am Reply

      You are correct that neither party is the answer, in as much a perfect answer. And to be clear, I’m not attacking the person. It’s the mindset that is questionable. Every President I’ve seen in office over my long lifetime had flaws, and the current one is not different. The issue is policies, beliefs in what is right under God, and a fight against evil which includes lies and hidden agendas to reward evil and punish good. The past provides lessons (ex: The Bible). I agree with you that the divide is wider than ever. The only way to close it is to bring good from all sides, not negatives. And I’ve been guilty of both. Hopefully we can all stop this by focusing on us, and not who was elected or not.

      Common Sense, and Science, tells us that for each reaction there is an equal and opposite reaction. Since this is a scientific based, proven law of expectation. It should be expected that if anyone attacks, cajoles, and denigrates another person, (in this case what half of the people in our Country feel was a President worth voting for) they deserve an equal and opposite reaction. Simple Common Sense!

    I just drove through Kapaa yesterday (I live on the Westside) and saw the signs on the road near the Texaco that Mr. Curtis wrote about, and my first reaction was kind of one of disbelief, and then I thought, well, at least in America we still have the right to express our beliefs no matter how silly or ignorant they may be, and that’s a good thing, right? I mean, there are actually people who believe the earth is flat, and there are also actually people who believe Trump is not a heartless moron who is responsible for many thousands of needless deaths, and that’s ok, right? Right?

    Ximena, only comforted, even by a doctor, after feeling ill from the vaccine, is nothing to think lightly of. Tell your family what happened as what you experienced may surface later days, weeks, months even years later, as something much more serious what with the rush job to make billions of vaccine doses and dollars, not much is known about the side effects or even the vaccines themselves.

    Even medical doctors know only as much as you do due to there being little to no studies done on people. Astrazeneca vaccine has Chimpanzee virus in it. Pfizer has foreign genes being injected into you and the shot is experimental.

    Merck Pharmaceutical says it’s safer and more effective to just get the disease virus and develop naturally both Immunity to the virus,
    and becoming non-contagious. The 2 of which makes you Herd Immune.

    Already 4,000 have died from the so called vaccines given in Europe alone and way over 100,000 injured. Statistics in the USA are not being reported assuming it is best to vaccinate as many as possible before dangers are exposed.

    Note how about 150,000,000 people have been vaccinated but no reports of deaths or injuries. That is a statistical an impossibility.

    So monitor yourself, wear a mask, stand 6’ apart and while you are rubbing your hands together with soap, also pray.

    Sounds good. Keep up the good work. I am happy for Kaua’i that they had this many people getting vaccinated. That was a surprise to see. Many getting the vaccine shots.
