Hawaiian Enough? An Examination of How “Hawaiian” Will Be Defined With the Akaka Bill

Please remember, that often times I’m only posting clips that I find, and that I don’t often express my feelings behind some of the posts that I do write.  I’m just trying to share information and allow a place for people to discuss the issues:

An examination of how “Hawaiian” will be defined with the Akaka Bill


The Akaka Bill would deny even those who helped create the Kingdom of Hawaii a place in the new race-based government.


The sad truth about how the Akaka Bill would deny the rights of a true Hawaiian hero.

Howard Dicus: “Stamp Out Overpaid Postmasters”

I think I had one of my bigger “Blogging” laughs this morning when I checked in at Howard Dicus’s Blog.

He writes in a blog entitled “Stamp out overpaid Postmasters

…President Obama lashed out against those overpaid CEOs, collecting millions for failure. Now someone has noticed that a CEO named John Potter makes $850,000 a year.

He’s the Postmaster General…

…The Postal Service no longer gets taxpayer dollars but it’s still hamstrung by more federal requirements and more federal oversight than its competitors have. As a result, it faces a $6 billion loss in the current fiscal year despite raising the price of a stamp every couple days…

…I am especially impressed by Hawaii postal workers, who are friendlier than their mainland brothers in the face of sometimes short-tempered customers…

I can think of one postmaster that definitely doesn’t deserve his pay raise this year.  I won’t mention any names. :roll:
