We see people jump on da bandwagon all da time. Some just like be a part of something good and trying to go wit it and then there's da minute few dat kinda kills everything.
You know those people who appear to be part of da "show" but really about something else.
April 15th is not only about taxes being due but it's also a group from da "Tea Party" demonstrating their 1st Amendment right at da State Capitol showing their displeasure of taxes.
Last time I checked da history books - or at least da parts dat I read - da Tea Party was about da insane taxes and it's exhorbant way of bleeding da money out of hard working fed up people.
Dat particular day it was pretty hectic at da Capitol and as I was driving by for some reason I only - fo' realz - ONLY saw TWO signs from da gazillion out there. Of course it was da beginning and end. Da first said,
"Husband unemployed. Reinstate all pay raises and (something else)" then da very last sign there was dis lolo waving a sign dat said "Deport Obama da Muslim".
Heh? Since wen was hiring a (your) husband and calling Obama a Muslim part of taxes or any direct relation to da Tea Party event? Get a life.
Just like the comments left about Obama's sister coming back home. It was never about her journey across da country, which da article clearly was about, but about how President Obama crippled the economy. How was Obama's sister coming back home have anything to do with da economy?
Or like the article about the how a former UH Warrior gets a walk-on try out for a NFL team and people start blasting Coach Mac. People, get wit da program!
Don't even get me started on da breaking news section of our web page? All of a sudden people are criticizing that there are no pictures from a lava at Kalapana..... uh, it's breaking news.... it ain't a "live show" wea camera crews are set up waiting for things to happen.
Wassap Wit ALL of Dat!
I for one am not against opposition or debate..... wen it pertains to da subject at hand but wen it goes totally off on a different tangent, WWD!. I can also see how if bringing up da past to help support a point to da subject mattah is relavant but like da crackah at the Capitol calling Barack Obama a Muslim needing to be deported is just straight up ludicras.
We all do it from time to time and even on dis blog but wat I like about it is dat at da least whoevah goes off says so but gets back on topic. Surah, WWD! is a place to let loose but for da most part Da Hui respects wat we talking about and dat's cool.
So for today, if you gotta let loose (no, not a fut), feel free to do so. Rant, rave, praise, vent..... watevah. No scade 'em go get 'em.
SHOUT OUT: Late notice but there is a pah-tay tonight at our trusted place, Fort Street Bar & Grill at da Topa Towers (across da street) from Aloha Towers starting at 6pm.
It's an Aloha Oe of sorts because, sadly, Fort Street B&G will be closing it's doors later this week and of course dis is/will probably be da last of da Triad Pah-tays as The Honolulu Advertiser dissolves into history.
I know it's a week night for you MLC'ers but if you can make it, you'll meet some of da oddah bloggers as well as posters too. I'll be honest and say I'm going to try my best to be there but I'll still be at baseball practice and got a couple of things to do right aftah so if I get a chance to head down there, it'll be later.... but if you been to a Triad Pah-tay it usually pau late anyways.
And yeah, Lurkahs can come too. :razz:
