The county/state/federal govt already owns 100s of thousands of acres in Kauai and can’t manage to create an affordable housing project without stealing land from citizens. Very sad times we live in under this liberal communist Kauai govt!
Correction: the county isn’t asking for it, the politicians are, I thought this was a democracy??
Why are they promoting shots that don’t work? I’m tired of the rules and restrictions, they are obsolete at this point, let the people govern themselves, this is a FREE country, Ige and Kawakami are not our dictators, they keep pushing everything back and giving excuses, enough is enough
This is a long winded way of saying that there is no end in sight for restrictions. They are now indefinite.
Big whoop, it was never adhered to anyway and was never enforced (except at the very beginning when they had the roadblocks).
What a surprise.
Now that over 70% of Hawaii residents are vaccinated (I believe it’s over 80%), Ige goes back on his promise to lift restrictions.
This will never be over until we say it is over.
In Hawai 58% are fully vaccinated. The 70-80% percentage you cite is for 1 dose.
All for the sport. This is a democracy. Politicians want this. Kawakami doesn’t know government. So he picks this. Big deal. Keep the tier system going until 2024 to be safe.
What a joke to announce they are doing away with the tier system. They haven’t been following it anyways,
I think everyone is anticipating a quick return to normal activities and not worry about any rules imposed when they go to the shopping center. But as this stands, they are following guidelines set by the CDC. Face mask rule reduces the risk of catching a virus considerably. Which means that this coronavirus is still very much a part of the community. It hasn’t been done away with. And to get vaccinated is the best way of preventing a disease. Even though still in its infancy stages of trial, the vaccines they have should help. When they first started out polio virus, it was world wide and spreading. Now there is hardly any cases of polio. The vaccines have done it. Sort of herd immunity. Also looking for the same effect towards the coronavirus. The vaccines must do it too. Achieving herd immunity until no disease exist. So this coronavirus is still very much real.
One prediction, one question, one comment: All pending quarantine/mask/gathering violation citations will be dismissed as moot so the government can save face and not have to “prove” their currently unprovable charges against folks. To challenge the “new rules,” will protesters now have to get cited/arrested/charged under (new) state law(s) and raise more money to start new litigation in order to reach that fateful day of reckoning when actual evidence is presented from both sides, testimony is taken from both sides, and someone declares our rights are in fact being violated at every turn? This game being played by our “leaders” in government will NEVER END unless everyone, vaxxed and unvaxxed, is vocal and actively defends fundamental liberty for which so many men and women – for centuries – made the ultimate sacrifice.
It’s time for Kawakami to be removed from office. This nonsense has went on long enough. He was at a party with a ton of people and filmed live online not long ago but yet tries to keep restrictions going. It’s time all restrictions are gone and the crooked corrupt ways are done away. We can live scared or we can live free. If you are still scared of COVID you can stay inside with your mask on. The rest of society is moving back to normal but Hawaii is becoming the experiment of the nonsense. Let’s vote Kawakami out or have him removed for his nonsense.
Is no one aware! here in our Island…… Even being “vaccinated” one can still get Covid AND still transmit it!
That’s why we are only told numbers of those testing positive and not whether vaccinated or not!
