If you disregard one of my platform items that I want to eliminate federal corporate taxes, that will create millions of well paid jobs for Americans, including those in Hawaii, this is what I plan to do after being elected.
I have been in the IT business for over thirty years. I know the executives in Silicon Valley, and they know me. I plan [...]
I am a Republican and have conservative financial views, but when it comes to marijuana, I think that Hawaii should legalize its recreational use. Why?
Because no amount of laws or law enforcement will stop people from using it, and as an innocuous drug (tobacco is far more harmful) it is still misclassified as a Schedule 1 drug! Others Sched [...]
… if not rich, certainly independent.
This is America, the wealthiest country on the planet. I am a Republican and I believe in wealth creation. In this instance, your wealth creation. It isn’t difficult; you just have to do the right things over a period of time. Unfortunately, most people spend their time thinking about how the [...]
As you may know, the Merchant Marine Act of 1920 was passed and made law to benefit U.S. maritime interests. It may have made sense then but it doesn’t know, especially in reference to Hawaii. Why? Because Hawaii didn’t become the 50th state until 1959. Why does that matter? It does…
The idea of this law was to help the merc [...]
According to a study by wallethub.com they compiled lists of the best and worst states including DC, by cost of living. Here are Hawaii’s numbers without comment.
Is it any wonder that voters, voting the same people in over and over again haven’t made any difference to quality of life in Hawaii?
Support my cam [...]
As you probably know, musical chairs is a game where people move in a circle around chairs enough for all but one player, while music is playing. When the music stops, everyone tries to sit down. One person doesn’t get to a seat in time and loses. One chair is removed and the process begins again. Eventually, the winner is the person wh [...]

For anyone who has ever heard the term “Washington insider” and felt outside — we are with you. So this week, we go inside the rooms wher [...]
As you’ve heard, our government is all in a dither about how to deal with our latest disaster, the flood of undocumented women and children crossing our imaginary walled border from Mexico. That’s the imaginary wall our government has spent billions on.
I have no doubt that the flood of women and children will intensify, as they c [...]
I read a Wall Street Journal article about President Obama’s fundraising activities. You can read it here. Fundraising is close to my heart as getting campaign contributions is difficult. That is unless you’ve been bought and paid for by special interests after you’ve been elected. Yes, campaign contributions increase dramat [...]
When I was a kid, my father took me out in the family car where I sat on the front passenger seat (without a seat belt, booster or anything) while he ran errands. For some odd reason he rarely made phone calls to talk to people; he drove and visited with them. Gas was cheap back then.
I liked to use my plastic steering wheel with dashboard su [...]
I heard a report recently that U.K. payday lenders were making significant profits from penalty charges associated with customer loans. When I stopped at my bank in Marietta to deposit some checks I had a discussion with the head teller about our banks providing something similar… zero interest loans. She admitted that this was big busi [...]
As we are getting closer and closer to the primary election, all of the candidates are doing frequent “debates.” They aren’t actually debates as you just get a few minutes to give your message, and then answer in turn one or two audience questions.
What is a theme of the other candidates, and I suspect candidates across the [...]
If you read this recent Los Angeles Times article and you are a “Millennial,” that is an adult under 35, you’ll be depressed. In Hawaii, due to the high cost of living and limited well paying jobs, you’ll be even more depressed. You can’t eat sunshine.

The problem is that we al [...]
It is not surprising that the American public views Congress as a bunch of children squabbling while making the big bucks, but these new Gallup and Economist/YouGov polls illustrate just how bad it has gotten.
So why when only one in either seven (Gallup) or one in seventeen (Economist/YouGov) approves of Congress, does the public reelect the [...]
If you’ve ever laughed when you watched the entertainment news show announcer say that unemployment rates are getting lower month by month and that things look good, it’s because they are quoting the U-3 numbers.
As you can read here, the Department of Labor U-1,2 and 3 statistics only takes into account a very tight definition o [...]
Based on recent events, I think that the lion needs to be replaced by a chicken
Yes, this is about Syria, but Iraq is now intertwined with Syria. They are joined at the hip, and very difficult to separate.
If you read my August 2013 article on how to end the Syrian war and if President Obama would have followed my resolution, the Syrian war w [...]
