Those who wish to reduce traffic speed on Kalanianaole Street between Leleiwi Street and James Kealoha Beach Park should take a look at my new neighborhood.
Up here on Highway 11, are three speed humps — one fronting Mountain View Elementary, one by a gas station, and the third by the Glenwood Post Office.
When I lived in that area near Kealoha park and participated in the Leleiwi Community Association, the county officials said they couldn’t put in speed “bumps” because it’s a highway.
Someone mentioned in (the Wednesday, June 21) news story that they couldn’t use speed humps on Kalanianaole because of the ambulances and police would find it difficult. Well, up here in Glenwood/Mountain View, it doesn’t deter them.
The Keaukaha shoreline is our Waikiki. For the safety of tourists and locals and nene, a safe speed limit and speed humps may be the answer.
Trump is like Hitler
Every day in the United States of America, we seem to drop down the ladder of our former greatness, honor and dignity.
The Pied Piper has taken over our land, playing his melody.
Masses follow him, and they disregard the police, the laws, the courts, the government.
Former President Donald Trump can seemingly do whatever he wants — impeachments, criminal indictments, rape charges, corruption, unpaid bills, sexual abuse, grand treason, etc. Nothing matters for the Trumpists. They are, so it seems, caught in a collective psychosis, identifying the former president as their new god.
Of course, the former prime minister of Italy, Silvio Berlusconi, who recently passed away, was a much better master of the Mafia methods, and it is little wonder that Trump is outright jealous of Vladimir Putin or Xi Jinping for their dictatorial powers.
But here in the U.S., this former president has opened the floodgate of all evil as it can ever happen in politics. If he could, he would throw Ukraine under the bus; if he could, he would open new concentration camps for all his political opponents; and if he could, he would claim the federal budget as his own possession.
Trump speaks like Hitler, threatens his enemies like Hitler, and he is ruthless and brutal like Hitler.
Fortunately, we still live in a country where the laws are upheld, where honor and dignity matter, and where the political system is still determined by democratic checks and balances.
But for how long? The Pied Piper is already on a roll.
