All bad, even though they do not mention that the new estimates for the Rail Disaster are now approaching ten billion dollars. This means millions and millions of dollars in profit for somebody. The Present Rail Party is not saying.
"Truth never envelops itself in mystery, and the mystery in which it is at any time enveloped is the work of its antagonist, and never of itself."
They got their very high priced gang in, paying off some of the locals naturally. And HART has taken over from this dissolved Oahu Transit Division. Now, they are slowly importing the super Rail maintenance engineers at huge salaries of course and then get rid of the old maintenance division, that had been doing such a great job before DRA (Da Rail Tragedy.)
The Industrial Parks will be prohibited on Oahu. "Keep the Country, Country"
same old story. You must pay your dues to Honolulu. Ladies should
curtsy and men should at least kneel on one knee.
Business had been pretty good for some. Bicycles are selling quite good, and now motorbikes and motor scooters too. Many are going into electric because if you have a home you can install a solar recharger for the batteries. No gas. Gotta do sumteeng, da Rail Disaster ain't it.

Those living close to the waters edge are looking at the small motorboats. Non-stop to Honolulu but then the parking is going to be hard to find. Some are looking to lease in Pearl Harbor with bigger boats and take 30, 40 passengers. May be good if they can beat the $400 monthly parking permits at the Rail Stations. But just about anything is better than the Rail.
From having one of the best public transportation systems in the world,
now being dragged down to the depths by the Present Rail Party and
the paid off government officials. Auwe!
And of course we are beginning to hear from those living on the North Shore and on Windward side. Why should they have their property taxes double for a Rail Crisis that is not theirs. And their bus service gets worse too. Of course, we haven't heard from the neighbor islands. Oh boy, when they find out that they will be unanimously elected to bail out the Oahu bankruptcy that is sure to come.
But by then all these wealthy mainlanders will be back home on the mainland, retired very nicely and living off their good money.
