I don’t know. Are these candidates now making any money in politics? More interested in the mainstream business than politics. Do you guys actually have a cinema on Kaua’i? And what’s the most popular movies going on now? And I don’t count Waimea Theater as a real cinema because it’s old and run down. It has to be state of the art complex like Kukui Grove shopping Center.
“They understand that sea levels are rising and climate change is real. They see also the enormous and ever-growing disparity between the very rich and everyone else.”
Leave it to Hooser to cart out the now stale, overripe tropes of climate change, sea level rise and those nasty rich people. Nothing like a little more fear to gin up the UIs.
First of all, the climate has been cycling between ice ages and warming eras for billions of years. Nothing we have done or can do will ever change that. With ice ages the seas are taken up as ice and then released with the inevitable warming that inevitably follows. The geological record confirms this FACT. The constant wailing is only to make the uncritical lay down docilely while the likes of Hooser place the boot of government on their necks; simultaneously extracting their wallets, stripping them of hard earned income and leaving them in virtual handcuffs…thinking, of course, that they’ve been “helped”.
As far as “very rich” go, anyone who can read, do a little competent research and comprehend the data can tell that most of these “rich” are the very patrons of the political class they use to gain favor ($$$$) from the overbearing top down government and its denizens. Hooser’s formula, by promoting this, is nothing short of destruction of the middle class, the very backbone of America. Frankly, I think, that he doesn’t even realize what the consequences of his perfect world and proscriptions to reach it are….sad but to be expected from people who have lived at the taxpayers’ expense.
