    Hmmm...I couldn't decide where this should go, because it does relate to kaukau, but since it is about lawsuits, I thought it would be more appropriate here.

    This is a story that appears in your Honolulu Advertiser this morning, and it relates to all the "Cheeseburger" lawsuits that have been cropping up around the country.

    Since I've been having fun off-topic in this thread, I guess I should bring it back on topic. It looks to me like this is a case of the legislative branch of government trying to cut off disputes that are best left to the courts. If the courts as a whole think that "cheeseburger lawsuits" really are frivolous, then they'll refuse to hear them, and that will be that. The fact that the food companies are lobbying so hard to get legislatures to exempt them from potential liability in these cases makes me wonder, why are they so afraid of what they claim are frivolous lawsuits?

    By the way KaipuaGurl, welcome to the Internet. Checking up on what somebody has said in the past like pzarquon did isn't being nosy, it's actually being polite because then you have a better idea of where the person is coming from. And in business it's standard these days to google somebody to get the scoops on them when you first meet them (or before, if possible).

We (and here I mean everyone) might disagree on moral, political, and other issues... but we can also share a love for music, local food, and many of the other things we also discuss here.
    Yeah, like me the godless hellbound atheist and Bradda Craig the deluded Jesus freak. (Jus kidding Craig.)

    Thanks for your reply, KaipuaGurl. I hope we can demonstrate that we can have differences of opinion and have a feisty debate, without getting personal or turning on each other.

    If the clashes in "Hawaii Hall" or "The American Asylum" ever get your blood pressure up, just head on over to "Kaukau Corner" or "Circuit Circus" and talkstory about something else for a while.

    This is getting stupid. KaipuaGurl - ripping people is not going to help you or your cause. Calm, intelligent conversation might work, but as it stands, you're beginning to turn people off. But keep it up, we all need a little humor and fodder for the water cooler (insert laugh track here)!

Injecting Ed Case into this thread?) - noting that at least, perhaps, we were finally starting to see people from a more conservative bent here (as our poor Mel has frequently felt out of sorts in a supposed sea of awful liberals).

    Loosen up a little. We can cross swords, but we should be able to have a little fun while we're at it. I was just trying to tease an intro out of you.

    Unless, of course, there is a campaign link, in which case... well, I'd love to hear your views in the Case v. Gabbard thread.

    Whether or not I will be voting for Mike Gabbard I am not sure yet. I had a look at your thread Case v. Gabbard, and I will have to see what Mike has to say rather than on a few issues that were braught up before I descide to vote for him. Really other than his music I haven't heard much about him until now.

    Re: the music, I have Mikes CD in my collection. And it was playing while I was watching a taped Warriors game with family, and we all looked at eachother because as the Warriors were entering it sounded so good. It was one of those feelings that just make you want to jump up and shout 'YEAH! GO! WHOO!! WARRIORS!!'

    Either way, KaipuaGirl, welcome, and I look forward to your Introduction.

    I think, meanwhile, that there need be no further assertions that this discussion forum is overrun by commie pinko lefty hippies. We've got a good mix, and that makes things all the more interesting.
    Wow, you saw some of my posts. Good job! dig a little deeper up my ass and you may find what I ate for dinner.

    With the way you treat people, and your afflictions to Ed Case, make me certainly consider it. But for now I think I will just share my views thank you.

    please leave me and my posts alone.

    mahalo,

    It's quite pathetic. "I'm fat. I can't stop eating your food. I can't control myself from going to your restaurant." "Let me sue you."

    Idiots. Everyone always has someone else to blame.
