There were less than ten percent Hawaiians. I just looked at year 2000 demographics and it has not changed much.
I lived on the Big Island and Oahu,
visiting Kauai many times by ferry in the mid fifties
as my father was stationed there.
Lots of Japanese, Chinese, Filipinos, Portuguese and a third Haole.

You could put 2 Texas in here and still have room left over.
‘Cept in Texas, they get to drill for oil......
The out-of-State Greenies (not a term of endearment) do everything they can to lock this place up - some even describe it as a ‘park’.
I just want for me, my kids and grandkids to be able to make a decent living.
Hell, the Greenines just sued to stop a crummy little strip mine across the inlet from here.

I would have checked out immediately!
She's a NIMBY of the worse sort. She picked an attractive part of the universe to live on, and then gripes when people notice.
If she want's privacy, there are some "new ghost towns" in West Texas that would do.

Count yourself lucky that you have the memory. I don't and obviously never will.
If Hawaii was not filled with tourists, it would be just like thousands of other deserted and poor islands across the South Pacific. Your options are an island home with a job and tourists, or an island home without a job and no tourists. Pick one.
Why do people who may own a small property think they own ALL the property and the land? If you want privacy buy 10, 20, 50 acres and you’ll have your privacy.
Jimma Carter locked up Alaska in payoff to the environazis.

Doesn’t work that way, what you end up with is “neighbors” telling you how to live on your land, and a big tax bill, to pay for all the crap they want. I really don’t want to hear how anyone did things up north, ever again.
Know the difference between a conservationist and a land developer? The conservationist built his cabin in the woods last year!
No doubt she is in the very low percentage of Hawaiians that still think Hawaii should never have become a state
What makes you so special that you can live and surf there, but other Americans can't visit?
I fully understand this woman’s feelings. I live in Monana and what was once a small quiet conservative state with hot cowboys and construction workers is now a haven for the rich from the East & California-which wouldhave sort of ok EXCEPT they have also brought their liberal values-wispy pony tails and cute little fanny packs-60’s Volvos and kooky ideas with them. We have yards with stupid signs “Get us out of Iraq vote yes on referendum # whatever! This kind of crap never use to happen here. So I am with this Hawaiian woman 100%!
Note the upside down state flag in the background.
Huff is almost definitely part European descent. European features are apparent in the face, and if that wasn't enough, there's the surname, Huff. (ooh, that rhymes....).
Disney just announced that they are building a DVC resort in Hawaii. I think we’ll just have to take a vacation out there and jet-ski over to her beach and camp out.
Judging from her upside-down hawaiian flag, she's the one who would have the husband with the wispy ponytail and get out of Iraq sign on her lawn.
Don't know why you would be with her. She's an extreme socialist...the kind you seem to despise.
Aren't environmentalists generally in favor of replacing airline trips with boat trips?
I'll agree to stay off her island if she pledges to never step off Kauai herself.
