Haha! I love your innuendo, Ron. So true! The banks and other “top of the food chain” types have been in this shibai from Day 1. Did the “Kapolei Chamber of Commerce” pay Nestor Garcia more than the he was getting paid to be a city councilman? Yep. Did he make sure they got everything they wanted? Yep. Did the Ethics Commission fine Garcia $6,500 — the largest fine in history — for his conflict-of-interest? Yep. Does Kirk Caldwell get paid more from Territorial Savings than he gets paid to be mayor? Yep. It goes on and on.

Ron Whitfield, TuNnL and all you peasants need not apply. We can only smile and shake our head as cabanalane plays “apologist” for developers and contractors. Carry on, of course.

We can’t be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans.
