    Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren recently appeared on one of the late night talk shows, beating the class warfare drum and arguing for billions of dollars in new social programs paid for with higher taxes on millionaires and billionaires. In recent years, though, blue states such as California, Illinois, Delaware, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland and Minnesota adopted this very strategy, and they raised taxes on their wealthy residents. How did it work out? Almost all of these states lag behind the national average in growth of jobs and incomes. So, if income redistribution policies are the solution to shrinking the gap between rich...
  • ‘Walk Out for Mauna Kea’ rally held at UH-MC

    She said kanaka, or Native Hawaiians, oppose the project not only because the summit is a sacred cultural site but also because of political and environmental reasons. The project did complete an environmental impact statement and undergo a six-year approval process, dating back to April 2009, but several protesters have questioned the integrity of the approvals. At full build-out, the telescope would be 18 stories tall and cover about 5 acres. "No matter what the EIS says, you cannot tell us that building this complex, that will be as large as Aloha Stadium . . . will not have an...

    By attacking President Obama over word choice, Hawaii's congressional representative is losing sight of what really matters. The unseemly and very public semantics battle that U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has been waging this year against President Barack Obama had largely been one-sided. Gabbard, a second-term Democrat, has become a relentless critic over the past month of the president’s restrained characterization of terrorists from the self-proclaimed Islamic State (or ISIS or ISIL). And her criticisms have come through some surprising channels: The bright-red Right, where this sort of thinking has long been a staple for Fox News, talk radio and the...

He was included in the FBI’s security index, meaning that Davis could be arrested or detained in the event of a national emergency.

Let me start with an overview of oceanic pH (the measure of alkalinity/acidity, with neutral being a pH of 7.0). Many people think that the ocean has only one pH  everywhere. Other people think that the oceanic pH is different in different places, but is constant over time. Neither view is correct.First, here is a view of a transect of the north Pacific ocean...

  • Is there a hole in the earth?

    08/17/2013 9:49:39 PM PDT · by Marak · 48 replies
    I'm browsing Google Earth around Kauai Hawaii and I noticed a really deep spot in the water just off the coast( 21°57'19.39"N 159°20'21.30"W). The surrounding water depth is about 50 feet, but the depth of the hole is over 6,000 feet. So I decided to dive in and take a look. Next thing I know, I am in South Africa. Pretty weird, so I try it again. Same result. Every time I try it, I end up in or near South Africa. Does this happen for anyone else?

    President Barack Obama was briefed on the ambush killing of two NYPD cops while on the golf course in Hawaii this afternoon, according to the White House press pool report. “The President has been briefed on the Brooklyn police shooting.

There’s always going...

    We must have let the rest of the White House staff go on “Winter Holiday Break” early too, because as of this morning, still no transcript from yesterday’s presser. I gotta run, I’ve got a flight to catch. See you next year.Although there was this posted yesterday on the Big White site: DECLARACIONES DEL PRESIDENTE SOBRE CAMBIOS EN LA POLÍTICA CON CUBA. No English translation though because, as I just explained, a lot of people are already on holiday. I ran it through my special language pack however and it appears to be addressed to newly landed formerly illegal aliens....

    At the Washington Post, Jennifer Rubin this weekend highlighted a video of Rand Paul speaking in 2012 about sanctions on Iran. In it, Paul disparages the notion of use of force, and for some reason claims the United States was partly to blame for World War II! “There are times when sanctions have made it worse. I mean, there are times .. leading up to World War II we cut off trade with Japan. That probably caused Japan to react angrily. We also had a blockade on Germany after World War I, which may have encouraged them … some of...

    On Monday, a group of students and activists took down the American flag flying at main entrance of the University of Hawaii at Hilo, instead raising the Hawaiian flag that was beneath it. The action was related to what they say is the continued illegal occupation of the Hawaiian Kingdom by the United States. The American flag that was taken down was folded and handed over to university administrators. The group then went over to do the same thing at the flag pole of Hawaii Community College in Hilo. While there, they encountered security.

    On November 26, Kamala Harris, the AG of California, filed a request for an en banc review of the decision on 12 November to deny her request to intervene in the case.  From campaign-archive1.com  (Michel & Associates): The AG’s latest request to the court comes after the court denied the AG’s and several gun ban advocacy groups’ requests to join the case once they learned Sheriff Gore had decided not to appeal the case any further.  The anti-gun rights groups have also filed a similar request for en banc review of the Ninth Circuit's denial of their requests to...
