Something Congress Can Do To Actually Help Our County

“We want to add more money there...it is very urgent though that we support our -- our police and fire, our health care workers, our nurses, our teachers...that’s what the state and local government is about, is meeting the needs of the coronavirus. And everything that we’re doing is about the coronavirus, understand that.” – Nancy Pelosi (P-CA) speaking on the stalled negotiations...

Loading the venerable .38 Special wadcutter

There was a time, in a galaxy far away, when revolvers chambered in .38 Special were among the most common handguns in the world. Every cop on the beat carried one, and this was reflected in the competitive shooting world. Revolvers chambered in .38 were widely used in...

Child Abandonment and HIV/AIDS in Northern Thailand (Part One)

Authors Note: In 1992, the East-West Center, a federally funded research institution located on the University of Hawai'i campus at Manoa in Honolulu, Hawai'i, USA awarded me with an academic scholarship for four years of graduate study and field research towards the degree of Doctor of Public Health.

Biden’s ‘Handsy-Sniffy’ Problem: Don’t Let Them Ignore It

“...but prominent Democrats continue to stay silent on the story, including most of the women who have been discussed as potential vice presidential picks.” This is hypocrisy in real-time and unless every American takes the time to apply pressure Biden and the Progressive-Democrats will get away with their status quo grotesque duplicity once again. The future of our country...

The Biden Sexual Assault Allegation: There’s More to the News Than COVID-19

Apart from the report that the New York Times allowed the Biden Campaign to vet and edit one of their stories on Mr. Biden’s misconduct (who gets to do that?), there is a larger point to be made here. “The Times raised eyebrows on Sunday after it deleted a tweet and tweaked its report about the 1993...

And We Aren’t Moving People Around Because?

On March 5, our Governor issued a Proclamation declaring our current state of emergency.  The proclamation suspends several laws, including chapters 89 and 89C, HRS, relating to collective bargaining and public officers and employees excluded from collective bargaining, to the extent necessary to, among other things, “provide for the interchange of personnel, by detail, transfer, or otherwise, between agencies or departments of the State.” ...

A Disgraceful & Deceiving Headline from FOX News

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST I can’t say that I am completely surprised. Since Roger Ailes was unceremoniously dismissed from NewsCorp leadership – and since the Murdock boys have taken over the reins – FOX news has transformed from “we report, you decide” to “we’ll provide the sensationalist headlines, our sponsors will enjoy the clicks.”

How Can Hawaii Get Back in the Game if Unemployment Can’t Do Its Job?

Some of us were laid off in the first weeks of the pandemic crisis because our sector was effected that quickly. Eventually, with the stay-at-home orders, it has effected nearly all of us. And the federal government has an unemployment package that should be helping Hawaii's residents to make essential payments and purchases, but no one can...

Active for over 40 years as an advocacy organization for the health needs and concerns of all Alaska Native people, ANHB continues to emphasize the importance of self-determination in healthcare services and encourages wellness and healthy ways of life...

The Kneejerk Left: Getting Called Out By Your Own

“I went to Yale and I worked for the New York Times, the people on the left hold themselves out as being science-driven, as being smarter, they think they're smarter but they won’t look at facts that won’t meet their narratives... everyone needs to hear this counterargument, whether or not it's right, you need to hear it because the damage we are...
