The bad of course has been the Rail Catastrophe. The lies, the paid legislators, the paid lackeys on the boards. All to get this easy money. Remember when "Carpenter" was such a respected name? But many people of Kapolei, Makakilo and Honokai Hale are getting to realize the con job they got. They firmly believe that they cannot be bought.
"People who sedulously attend, pointedly ask, calmly speak, coolly answer
and cease when they have no more to say are in possession of some
of the best requisites of a human being."The Rail Fiasco is Pork. Everyone in Washington DC knows what that is. The Federal Transit Authority is pro buses, but they were forced into this money from the Senate, where? And it is all politics and Pork. We could have gotten even more money if we were to upgrade our bus system. But the Big Bucks Profits overrules common sense.
There are dancers in Makakilo, Kapolei and Honokai Hale. I use that because the same name as their neighborhood board and they are a solid group of good citizens trying to do their best for the community and not let their people get ripped off.
Fortunately Kapolei Chapter HBDA is leading the way in social, recreational dancing in the West. Good people, great board and excellent instructors. They are at present located at the Makakilo Community Center, a very nice place. I also expect the Kalaeloa section between Kapolei and Ewa to have prospective dancers. Unfortunately they have too many bedroom communities.
The Articulated bus would have been the perfect solution for the
entire Island Chain. But the Big Bucks are more important.
The bad part of course, is that the Rail Disaster will not do the users of public transportation any good. At this moment you can get an express in Manoa and get to Kapolei in one hour. The "Vapid" transit that will cost us billions and will take two hours. Of course, the millions and millions of dollars in profits are more important. Easy Money.
And I coulda got the bus right around the corner!
