‘Full of hypocrites’

America has become a beacon of hope — for Vladimir Putin and dictators like him.


When President Obama killed innocents with drones, I spoke out. When Obama spied on Americans, I spoke out.

Murderers and rapists get away with what they did every day, for lack of evidence. We all know this.

So, just because you cannot prove they did the crime does not make them innocent. We have all seen movies where the bad guys laugh at the system while getting away with it, and who among us sides with that bad guy?

But if that same bad guy said he was on your political side, would you then cheer for him?

The worst part about the findings by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is that Trump voters do not care if Trump committed treason. They only care only about party, and not about the safety and security of America.

Trump supporters know Trump has done something wrong in regard to Russia, but they don’t care.

Evangelicals know Trump committed adultery while his wife was pregnant, and they don’t care.

Why should God bless America?

Seriously, if God were to bless any country on Earth, it should be a virtuous country full of good and honest people, right?

So, God would definitely not bless America today, because it’s full of the hypocrites Jesus spoke about.

Tax tricks

I want to thank the Hawaii County representatives, mayor, and all others who are responsible for legislating the property tax increases.

I think the “who-do-voodoo” mathematical equations used to increase my property taxes and the slight-of-hands trick was great.

Please, teach me your technique on how your departments figured out how my property assessment went from $329,400 in 2018 to $340,200 at the start of 2019, a $10,800 difference, when there were no home or land improvements done on my property.

I realize that property values can go up for various reasons, like new homes being built near by, etc., but none of this is taking place in my immediate area that would justify a $10,800 increase.

In my opinion, this just a pure money grab on the citizens in the County of Hawaii — again.

Teach me your technique for fleecing and slight-of-hand tricks, as I will probably need them to pay this ridiculous increase.

People, election time will be coming.
