Moderating the Comments on This Site Now

I didn’t realize the overwhelming support that I would get with starting a new blog. Of course, with the support, I also get the nay sayers and the people that would like to spread rumors etc.

I decided that I will moderate all comments just as many other bloggers do. I won’t censor them, and I welcome all comments.

I just don’t want my site filled with viagra ads. This is a free public blogging tool and the more people that read my blog… the more stuff that I need to filter…. unless you need a viagra ad popping up here and there.

I hope this doesn’t discourage anyone from posting. As soon as I have a chance to approve comments on my blog… I will do so… and trust me… I’ll approve most everything, except for the viagra ads.

Update on the Polls

I’m moving the polls to a new page at top of this site.

I have turned on the option so that you can see the updates on the polls automatically.

Voting is still the same.

I’ve decided that I will take down the political polls after 7 days.

I will repost them a new set of polls in a few weeks to see if peoples views have changed on candidates.

Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders are Expected to More Than Double, Increasing From 1.1 to 2.6 Million.

According to this CNN report today, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander population is suppose to double by the year 2050.

This is interesting as an August 8th article by the Honolulu Advertiser states: Percentage of Native Hawaiians shrinking in Hawaii Census….Hawai’i County has the largest percentage of Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders in the state — and the nation — followed by Maui, Kaua’i and Honolulu counties, according to population estimates released yesterday by the U.S. Census Bureau..

Which to me it means more and more Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders are having to leave their homelands to gain roots in the mainland.

Record Hits on My Blog and Safarik Pulls Ahead of Joseph in the Poll

I’d like to thank the 660 people that have viewed my blog in the last 24 hours. This was a record amount of people to view my blog in one day, considering it’s less then a week and a half old.

Safarik fans have come out to play today it looks like, as now Safarik is down to Gumapac by 9 votes. In my earlier report, Joseph was ahead of Safarik.

Hawaiian Airlines to cancel San Diego-Maui route

One more cancellation of a mainland city to a Hawaii destination.

I’m glad I’m already here in the islands.

Soon enough, only the wealthy will be able to fly here.

Arkansas State Democratic Chairmen Fatally Shot!

Insane when people are so nuts that they will go after a chairmen of a party!

At the request of a constituent of District 6, I have added a District 6 Poll on the Side Bar.

Please feel free to participate in that even if you are not in the District.

Why The CVS Takeover of Longs Drugs is a GOOD THING!

I think we all have heard the news that CVS out of Rhode island has bought out Longs Drugs.

I think this is a good thing!

We will now be able have an “ONLINE” pharmacy available to those of us in Rural Sections of Hawaii where driving to pharmacies and waiting in line is a Biyatch.

I just looked at CVS Online Policies that they have currently and they look pretty good.

Hawaii is the Least “Medicated” State

This kind of surprises me.

We are lucky to live in Hawaii. Hawaii was recently listed as the State with the least amount of Drug Prescriptions filled per capita.

According to Forbes Magazine.

I wonder if this correlates somehow with the lack of physicians?
