Your Views for January 6

Good job

Kudos to the workers at the Hilo dump for improving the driveway leading to the trash bins. Car lines move much quicker now, and it is a lot easier to see way ahead what bin stalls are available to pull up to.


Also, many mahalos to the attendants there who often go out of their way to assist people, including kupuna, with the unloading and tossing of our trash into the bins.

Mahalo, attendants, for your hard work!

Money for all

Got my $600 stimulus money, and I would personally like to thank all of you young taxpayers once again for your generous donation.

And let me thank you ahead of time for all the stuff that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be giving us — it is truly very generous on your part.

My only concern is that the money presses will run out of ink.

‘You idiots’

It is insane how this “news”paper features the tremendous effort taken to inoculate several hundred people, and in the same issue publishes a cartoon of President Trump with a comment, “You’re not worth saving.”

What effort do you people think it took on Trump’s part to convince all those pharmaceutical companies to drop what they were doing and develop the vaccine in record time?

You idiots, Democrats and media, laughed when Trump declared a vaccine would be available by the end of the year, criticized him for acting too quickly in banning travel from China and now condemn him for not acting quicker.

Nancy Pelosi going to Chinatown in San Francisco and telling the people there’s nothing to worry about and continue celebrating, Joe Biden crying out that Trump is reacting needlessly on banning travel from China, Anthony Fauci saying there’s no need for face masks and on and on — all these idiotic comments are available on the internet for whomever is interested. These politicians are now first in line to get vaccinated.

If Democrats had the presidency during the last four years, there would be no vaccine, just excuses and BS.

This president gets no credit for any good thing he’s accomplished, and there are a lot. In fact, his accomplishments in his first year are more than Obama/Biden in eight years.
