With anticipated voter turn out in Iraq, Hawaii needs to take note on the importance of being able to vote. The amount of people going to vote in Iraq with the very real threat of being Killed is amazing. It is right that we have and it should not be taken lightly. I have a serious problem with people who complain about long lines, having to show I.D. or whatever their complaint might be. It is Manini compared to what Iraqi citizens are doing to vote.

Hawaii needs to take a good and hard long look at Iraq and not buy into the bloviating socialist agenda, anti-war liberals that are so prevalent in our state and especially at our tax supported University of Hawaii.

Cost of Living in Paradise

To follow up to my previous post to be able to enjoy our wonderful weather and beaches in the middle of winter it comes at a high price

The state measuring as least affordable for housing is Hawaii, where a two-bedroom home would require a wage of $22.30 an hour. California was next at $22.09.

Lanikai Beach on a List Again

Aloha to All and greatings from the far left Islands

With all of the reports of the cold weather on the Mainland I thought I would let my friends on the Mainland know how difficult it can be to live in the Islands.

It looks like Lanikai Beach is the only U.S. Beach to make the MSN's List of 10 beaches To Beat The Winter Blah!

What else can I say but, I have go now as there is a rising swell on the North Shore I have to attend to.

I hope your heating bill does not cost you too much this year. I will be thinking of you if I have to turn on my Air Conditioner this winter

Merry Christmas!

Ten Suggestions for Keeping Your Kids Off Ice

While doing some research on the Tayshea Aiwohi Case I ran across these ten suggestions for keeping your kids off Ice.

1. Know your child's friends. Encourage your child to bring friends to your home. These friends will often be involved with you and your child for the rest of your lives.

2. Visit your child's school. Let your child know that you are interested and involved in your child's education. As you become aware of your child’s school environment, you are better prepared to deal with him or her effectively during the evening and on weekends

3. Set aside time each evening when you and your child can discuss the day's events. This will help keep you in tune with your child's thoughts and activities.

4. Encourage your child to discuss with you anything of concern or interest. Understand that there is nothing too small or insignificant for a child to discuss with you.

5. Make sure your child knows daily that he or she is loved. Consider giving your child a hug and telling him/her you love him/her. Ask yourself if you really like your child and if you enjoy having your child as a part of your life.

6. Set consistent standards of behavior for your child. Let him or her know that there are socially acceptable and socially unacceptable behaviors. Make sure that your child has a clear understanding of your expectations.

7. Reward and discipline your child. Let your child know that there are consequences for acceptable and unacceptable behavior.

8. Set a good example. Make sure your child sees you displaying the type of behavior that you would have him/her demonstrate.

9. Discuss important values and attitudes with your child. Make sure you sit with your child and discuss what motivates you to do your best. A solid ethical grounding that sustains a parent though good and bad times will help sustain a child as well.

10. Share a dream. Help your child understand that a dream shared today can be a reality someday. By helping your child set realistic goals you will help them control their destiny in many ways.

They look really familiar, oh yea! Traditionaltional family values. Values that I was raised on. Especially #7 more on the discipline portion.

Hawaii has a unique family and extended family culture that is unlike anywhere. We can not let traditional family values be slighted. There are so many groups out there that get upset with us so called religious right when by raise the importance of the traditional family and family values.

Pay attention Hawaii we can not afford any further breakdown of our families.
