When You Hold an A’ole Accountable

There is a sudden interest in this blog about what many A’oles have said and done. One admits to making a disparaging remark to a senator while another continues to use typical anti studies as evidence. Then there’s another one who feels his rights have been violated.

Whatever the case may be, they now feel that they are being attacked. Let’s see now about this accusations of attack. Who came out and protested against biotech and are using fear mongering to gain followers? It was the A’oles. Who keeps on harping on GMO “contamination” and that biotech sprays people with pesticides? Hmmm… A’oles were the ones.  Who attacked who here?

One of the A’oles wants me to support what I love and let things rest.  Hmm…  When laws that the A’oles want passed keep coming up into play, do you think that it is okay for one to sit back and do nothing to defend this technology?  Oh, no, that won’t be happening here.  You said something bad, it’s saved for all to see.  It’s also good to clarify what has been said against the farmers too and seek the truth.  Is that an attack?  Nope, I call it being on the defense.

Want me to stop posting things that you have said publicly about the farmers?  Here’s a clue.  Stop posting your fear mongering comments around and riling others up.  That’s a great start.  I’d love to stop seeing all the misinformation being spread about farmers.  Keep it up and you can bet you’ll see your name up on this blog.

If you don’t like being featured here on this blog, stop spreading your misinformation all over the place. If you’re getting defensive about not being local, act local and stop disparaging the farmers they way you are.  It’s pretty simple really.

Local people don’t stand on other people’s farms and point fingers telling a farmer how to farm.  The farmers won’t be letting this happen anymore.

Moms Making Moms Scared With Misinformation

It is really sad when a group of mom’s decide to “educate” people about GMOs.  Two lead mothers in the picture is Mae Fuimaono, a nurse, and Trisha “Mama T” Alari-Gonsalves, a chef associated with Down to Earth. None of these two women have any nutritional background but seem to feel that they can apparently teach others about nutrition about GMOs.

Do you actually think that this is a good lecture with vetted information from a chef and a nurse?  You get what pay for with this one.  Free information to make moms scared about their food with the same old scare studies that have been debunked.  Really, is that the responsible thing to do to other parents?  Apparently, if you’re an A’ole, it is.  Sad.

If you look more at who these people are, once again you’ll find that they are not local people.

Then let’s not forget the ringleader of these moms, Mitsuko Hayakawa of Los Angeles, California

These A’ole moms think that it is just fine and dandy to scare and misinform young mothers with their so called “expertise,” of which none of them appear to have to begin with.  Remember the Andrew Wakefield scare of vaccinations that created more harm based in fraud and pseudoscience claims? Forget data, evidence, and studies and listen to the A’ole sites that don’t tout any of that.  The goal is to scare, scare, scare.  Where’s any education there?  None exists.

While they are busy at scaring people, another mother states otherwise and has some evidence to back up what she states.

Think about it…  If organic food is so superior, why do they need to resort to this?  Because it is just a label to help sell their product and doesn’t necessarily confer any added benefits.

You can choose to be swayed by powerful emotions based in fear to guide your decisions for your family or go with evidence based knowledge.  The choice is there already and you don’t need a label to tell you that.

The Right to Farm Bill and The HATE COMES Out!

Well, the farmers just got some news that was good today.  Finally.  Interesting enough, there were some 36 legislators introducing the Hawaii Right to Farm Act.  This spells out bad news for the counties, who have gone rogue in creating their own laws.

Interesting enough was that the Chair of the Agriculture committee isn’t even on board with this law.  Does that mean Representative Wooley doesn’t support farmers?  Yup, that’s what it means.  She prefers to support her activists that do this kind of stuff.

If you wear red shirts and yell loudly, this is the pono way of doing things, “especially if you are not of the “Rubbah Slippah” folks.

How to get your laws passed in Hawaii. Yell!

Now that the A’oles know that there is a bill on the table, take a look at the comments coming out once again.  Here’s some of the commentary that was posted on the Big Island News Video post today.

And it never fails that there is at least one agroterrorism comment.

We shouldn’t be surprised to see where these A’oles come from to know why these comments are so ugly.  They ain’t no local folk that’s for sure!

When you’re not from Hawaii, it’s pretty apparent that activism has to be full of hate, cursing, and threats.  More reason why legislators should not listen to these people’s demands.

Malama the A’ina, Pono Preachers: They aren’t the Rubbah Slippah Folks

After seeing numerous hate comments and nastiness among the A’ole crowd, I started asking myself as to why these folks seem to not embody the local style spirit?  Do these folks, who are demonizing farmers across our state, have any roots to plantation style culture?  To me, they do not speak or act with the rubbah slippah folks, a term coined by Richard Ha.  Let’s see who these folks really are…

Nomi Carmona of the Babes Against Biotech: Ms. No Aloha #1 from Corona, California

The leader of the Babes Against Biotech is Nomi Carmona.  She loves to speak in her Hawaiian phrases and such and says how she wants to protect the aina.  Lo and behold, her home aina is not Hawaii!  Maybe her name needs to be Nomi California!

Jessica Mitchell aka Senator Nishihara’s “Go Back to Japan” Girl and Babes Against Biotech from Sacramento, California

Another notorious BAB is Jessica Mitchell, who made her name known across the land as the “Go Back to Japan” message to Senator Nishihara.  What would happen if someone left her a message, “Go back to California!”

Representative Jessica Wooley “I want a label” legislator and I Love BABs from Scottsdale, Arizona

She has her roots in the local plantation style ways because she was born and raised on the plantations of Arizona and schooled in California.

Earthjustice Attorney Paul Achitoff “GMOs are being shoved down our throats” lawyer not from Hawaii

He speaks for the local people every since he landed in Hawaii in 1990.  Definitely has his roots in local ways and ancestors from the plantations.  He’s protecting farmers too? Really?

Take a look at more “local” faces from the Kauai Midweek…  Where’s the descendants from the plantation workers???

Now that you’ve seen the faces and where they are from, look at what they have said publicly to others across the social media…

The vile comments seen here make it very obvious and clear that these people are not the rubbah slippah folks.  They can easily speak the lingo of malama the a’ina, and pono, but you can’t find a shred of it in what they say or do to farmers and others.  These people never knew what “small kid time” meant or what it means to be local.  They do not share the plantation style values of respect and coexistence that was taught back in those days.  This is a well bankrolled campaign paid for by lots of mainland monies to spread mainland values and destroy local ways.

They are not the local voices that should be heard.  Time to hear out the real local folks that know how to act and speak the true pono way…  The farmers!

How to Get Into Higher Office in Hawaii

When you know that your elected seat might be in danger, what is the best strategy?  Who appears to be the loudest and largest block of voters?

Screen shot 2013-11-02 at 8.36.02 PM

The polls appear to be in their favor much of the time.  However when you find out the fact that many of these have been compromised, you have to think twice.

Monkey see, monkey do and it’s about winning at any cost.  That’s the kind of leader we have in Hawaii.  It’s obvious who and what calls the shots here.  It’s not the brains but something else…

Christi A’ole GMO aka Kauai A’ole GMO

It’s no secret who is responsible for this collection of tweets received today:

Christi might have changed her Twitter handle but it’s not hard to not know who she is and what she has to say.  Can’t forget this comment of hers:

demuth 4-2

Just another GMO Free club member showing us what she thinks is aloha towards farmers or anyone who speaks up for biotech.  Gary Hooser, what do you have to say about your lovely followers?

Gary Hooser Rigs Polls the Pono Way

It is such a crock that Gary Hooser claims to be for doing what is right.  He never did acknowledge that there was a lot of intimidation and hostility by the A’oles ever.  And now he wants to win polls the right way by cheating on it and teaching others how to cheat too:

garyhooser cheats poll

To him, it is about winning no matter the method and at what cost.  It’s no wonder that his followers think and act the same way.  So here is the poll as of 8:40 HST noting that all the A’ole GMO groups have jumped on it.

Screen shot 2013-11-02 at 8.36.02 PM

That’s an honest politician indeed who did not allow for the release of the attorney general’s review of the law.  Instead he kept people in the dark about it and when the Mayor made his veto, it was clear that the law had no standing based on current regulations.  If Hooser and Bynum knew this already, why did they not withdraw the bill and save us all the drama that followed?  Wouldn’t a true leader have done the right thing?  Apparently in this case, there is no right and wrong, it’s all about winning while dividing communities.

Well, we know he’s like Dr. Seralini and the lumpy rat study.  They skew the data, give partial information, all as a means to create hysteria to gain supporters.  That apparently is the pono way to do things on Kauai for a “leader” like Hooser.  That is not how we local people do things Mr. Hooser!
