Just Say Yes..!" 'James "Kimo" Rosen'

Dats Me!  James "Kimo" Rosen. This blog also appeared as an opinion
article in the 03-18-14 edition of the Honolulu Staradvertiser.

Just Say Yes!

No to the Superferry, no to plastic bags, No to GMO's, no to more roads, no to  a Walmart super center and currently no to a dairy. There is a group on Kauai we refer to as the Anti's, formerly known as the contrarians.

Anti's are basically against anything that   could help civilization progress into the 21st century. Most anti's are transplants from the mainland USA, most are liberal.  The anti's are usually active in politics and one of the first things they do upon relocating to a new community is register to vote.

Many  local people  have given up on the political process, and for good reason. The dilemma lies in that there is a large number of born and raised local that wanted a ferry system, that wanted a Walmart super center, wanted more roads and want the Rainbow papaya industry to continue.  

Everyone needs to vote, we may not have the best choices and more times than not we vote for the better of the two evils.

It's time to say yes! Please everyone, register to vote, and then don't forget to vote. Yes is not a dirty word!

Aloha, check out my  opinion article in  the 03-18-14 edition of the  Honolulu Staradvertiser. Since they have a paywall and most of you are not subscribers I have therefore copy and pasted it below;

Kauai’s ‘antis’ intimidate locals 

No to the Superferry, no to plastic bags, no to GMOs, no to more roads, no to a Walmart super center. There is a group on Kauai we refer to as the “antis,” formerly known as the contrarians.

Antis are basically against anything that could help civilization progress. Most antis are transplants from the mainland, most are liberal. The antis are usually active in politics and one of the first things they do upon relocating to a new community is register to vote.

Many local people have given up on the political process, and for good reason. There is a large number of born-and-raised locals who want progress but are afraid to speak.

It’s time to say yes. Please everyone, register to vote, and don’t forget to vote. Yes is not a dirty word.

So true Unc, although I have made a statement many times as a one man band, but it get's old when hundreds have approached me in the grocery store thanking me but telling me it's not their style or how they were raised to not be voice-tress... Here's one of my many one man band stands... (photo of me with bring back da Superferry!)
