Corruption in Hawaii & U.S.

Survey Says … Hawaii Is Corrupt!

Reporters across the country were asked about their perceptions of corruption in government. The Aloha State did not fare well.

I saw this article after I wrote this week’s Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet on Oligarchy (corruption).  It fits right in.  Please read and pass on. Mahalo.

oligarchy
“The U.S. is no democracy, but instead an oligarchy, meaning profoundly corrupt…” is the finding of a study in the academic journal Perspectives on Politics.

      “The authors of this historically important study are Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page, and their article is titled “Testing Theories of American Politics.” The authors clarify that the data available are probably under-representing the actual extent of control of the U.S. by the super-rich. (.1of 1% controls about as much wealth as the bottom 90% U.S. combined.) http://www.truth-out.org/opinion/item/35666-is-the-1-really-the-problem

“The clear finding is that the U.S. is an oligarchy, no democratic country, at all. American democracy is a sham, no matter how much it’s pumped by the oligarchs who run the country (and who control the nation’s “news” media)… Today, after this exhaustive analysis of the data, “the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.” That’s it, in a nutshell.” http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article44504.htm

According to former President, Jimmy Carter (1977 to 1981), the American Essence or value has been compromised through “unlimited political bribery” using “unlimited money” by “oligarchs” to elect their chosen politicians to office. The system subverts the American definition of Democracy… http://yournewswire.com/jimmy-carter-the-u-s-is-completely-subverted-by-oligarchs/

EARTH DAY 2016!

We spend billions of dollars looking for life on other planets and spend trillions of dollars killing this one.
Time to malama (take care of) this place.

earth cryingThe entire earth is suffering but

to understand a problem, ask the question:

Who Profits? Follow the Money!

Who is making a killing off the killing?

A starting point is the Military Industrial/Corporate/Wall St./Banking Complex that puts short-term gain before long-term consequences.

(Pohakuloa military radiation, and other toxic, contamination is a good example.)

Make Peace! Save the Planet!
Civil Disobedience may be more important than voting!

  1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject war as a solution. 3. Defend civil liberties.
    4. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-Hawaiian, etc.
    5. Seek peace through justice in Hawai`i and around the world.
