West Coast Awakens

Looks like there is a movement afoot to stop residential housing in the suburbs of this island unless there is adequate means of transportation. Some of our legislators are slowly discovering that a bedroom community only leads to disasters like the rail tragedy.

"There are no classes in life for beginners:
right away you are always asked to
 deal with what is most difficult."

The need for an industrial park in the Waianae Coast, the North Shore and the Windward side is becoming more evident. This is an urban island as much as the downtown people are trying to declare otherwise. With just those three at 2000 employees a piece would be 2000 less people on the freeways to town. 2000 less people in the congested downtown district and 2000 less people on the freeways home.

And everyone agrees, "I coulda been home in 20 minutes."
Minimum Wage? It is worth ten times more
in Waianae than in downtown Honolulu.

Not completely empty freeways but comfortable enough for those that "must" use their cars. With articulated buses in the rail corridor, the rail proves useless and a waste of money. Even today the #93 bus going to Makaha from downtown is faster than any rail that is contemplated. Only bad thing is more people are using this fast bus and it becomes standing room only when you have a "Shortie" bus. The wheels know this. Then Why? It's the money, Sonny, it's the dough, Flo. The Rail Catastrophy is Big Big Profits for somebody.

If half the fleet was articulated buses public transportation would be a breeze for citizens of this island. But of course, the greedy money makers would be out. Those crooks have taken over but the people will find out and they will be out, starting with Caldwell, White and Boylan. They have done it with lies, we shall do it with truths. And the truth will set us free.
