What’s the Big Idea?

The solution to many of our ills in Hawaii would be creating a light-fabric canopy over the sidewalks -- enabling people to walk or bike comfortably from one destination to another. Most unnecessary use of fossil fuel consumption is actually for the purpose of not being in the sun -- as one goes from place to place. With a canopy, an extended area is transformed into a giant mall -- not requiring transportation to prevent overexposure to heat exhaustion and sunlight.

In the old days, shade was provided by trees, and lately by buildings -- which too densely concentrated, prevent proper ventilation. The beauty of the light fabric canopy is that it can be made entirely of recycled materials (plastic bottles, old tires, aluminum cans) -- and can obviously be constructed much cheaper than creating a heavy rail infrastructure -- that they’re miscalling a light rail system.

That is the most troubling aspect of the proposed “light rail system” -- in that it a deception from the get-go, with so-called professional experts claiming the rationale for rail in Honolulu is that we’re the 5th most densely populated area in the United States -- which is obviously not the reason people flock from all over the world to “enjoy” this island environment. If they were providing valid information, I’m willing to listen -- but when it is just lies upon lies upon lies, my red flags go up.

That’s why we need people more representative of the general population making laws in Hawaii -- rather than only lawyers, who are used to saying and doing whatever somebody will pay them to.

Should you look for quality or quantity -- in any thing you buy? Obviously, if something is not very good, the entire world’s supply of it, is still worthless -- if not a liability. So the first consideration has to be, the necessary quality.

In politics, that discussion takes the form of “seniority” versus a “better” approach. Often, the argument for seniority is that one has been there a long time because he is such a “nice guy,” who never makes waves, never rocks the boat, quite frankly, never does anything notable but keep his chair warm -- and hopes to do o for as long as they live.

Why so many people buy into that argument, beats me. I guess they’re used to settling for nothing -- as their just deserts in life, the best they have a reason to expect. What would happen if they thought otherwise?
