Whereas recognizing the severity of the pandemic and its impact on our island inhabitants, I imagine it is vitally incorrect for the state to open for trans-Pacific vacationers with testing and no quarantining, however to not residents needing to journey interisland.
There are a lot of causes Hawaii residents have to go interisland. So far as I can determine from this info mess, if I have to go to Hawaii island, I ought to journey to the mainland, get examined, and fly to Hawaii island. Huh?
Irresponsible Trump places himself above all
President Donald Trump’s habits from the very starting of the pandemic has been a shame and incorrect. The proof: Trump’s present prognosis of COVID-19 and subsequent hospitalization at Walter Reed Nationwide Army Medical Heart.
If most individuals had been offered with this state of affairs, a sane, logical particular person would acknowledge the seriousness of this prognosis and hearken to the recommendation of his or her docs. To underscore the seriousness of the illness on this 74-year-old, overweight male, the record of medicines getting used must be warning sufficient.
Despite this, our “steady genius” president left the presidential suite at Walter Reed for no different purpose than to interact in a photo-op — driving across the grounds to wave to his followers. How irresponsible. How silly.
Previous to this hospitalization, if there was any doubt as to what or who the president places first, there ought to now be little question. It’s “I, me, my”!
Electoral Faculty diminishes worth of vote
In response to Eric Nedzweckas’ specious argument selling the enduring worth of the Electoral Faculty (“Electoral Faculty guards in opposition to mob rule in U.S.,” Star-Advertiser, Letters, Oct. 7), I’ll admit that state sovereignty was a key challenge within the 18th century.
Nonetheless, it’s not clear to me in the present day why a state line ought to diminish (or enhance) the worth of a citizen’s vote. He concludes that “51% of the individuals might take away the rights of the opposite 49.”
Remember the fact that in 2016, 46.1% of American voters took away the rights of the opposite 53.9% when it selected the present ineffectual, narcissistic, deceitful and amoral president.
