Obama should be the one screaming at Romney. Where the hell are your TAX RETURNS you tax cheat. Who in their right mind would vote for Mitt? This guy is hiding some TAX records that he does not want us to see. Hint.....When John McCain looked at his tax records in early 2008 he picked Sarah Palin. If John had no choice but to pick stupid Sarah Palin he must have seen something in Romneys taxes.

lol...nice try moron. Glen Beck radio show?? Never heard of it.

Your boy obama is getting cleaned out all over the nation now. NOBODY takes anything he says seriously. NOBODY! Morris has it right: obama is crashing hard and the mainstream media and morons like you -- the radical far left-- is throwing up EVERYTHING in the hopes that it sticks. LOL! not gonna happen...Mitt is clean as a whistle. If he hadn't paid any taxes in 10 years the IRS would be all over his butt. But, guess what? They aren't. That is because he pays his taxes and they are all legal. Too bad for you dummies that just can't figure that out.

obama is so dumb and is in such a panic state now that even his surrogates are coming unglued. Just like you are now. You haven't had a decent post in months, because you have run out of things to say. All you got left is the racism attack--again. Like you did two months ago when you were crapping in your pants because you knew obama was one and done.

Yep, he is losing in the swing states now, and it is growing. It will only get worse. Today on the radio here they were claiming that your fellow-slimballs had Mitt''s 9th grade transcripts, and now you want all of his transcripts-- but you say obama has a "right" to hide all of his own records. You know what- SHOVE IT! You aren't getting a n y t h i n g!...DEAL WITH IT!

Asked what Romney must do in the weeks leading up to the convention, Trump warned,“I think he’s got to be very tough. He’s a very nice man. He’s a very smart man. He’s a very honorable man, and now he’s really got to get tough because they are playing down and dirty with him.”
You can say that again, I've been waiting for republicans to fight back. They let the democrats rig the voting and everything else. If Obama wins this election then we deserve to be assimilated into the Borg.

Kona has several great deals but make sure you do not have any Vog related breathing problems. Hilo becoming very attractive to mainland retirement buyers. Money to be made there. Sold 7 units so far this year and bought 3 more. Spend some money upgrading for fast safe profits. Heard Oahus west coast rental properties are declining due to the state building 3 bd 2 bths units for low cost rentals to qualified families. Some of these properties will be a buyer rental type deal where they can pruchase their units. Time to dump any rental properties or even single family homes when that happens.
interesting post. Agree with you on Hilo. But it is not a hot market yet, unless you have stats that I do not see yet. Rents are coming down there right now. It is almost vog-free, and you can grow anything there. The humidity thing is overdone. it is humid at times, other times not. Still way better than Florida. Very green. Lots of space. It is the cleanest air on the planet, or almost.

Oahu is a hot market. Don't dump any properties in this market. Hold and wait. In fact, don't sell. Why sell, unless your ideal is somewhere on the mainland. You won't get back if you want to.

I was curious and went to Real Estate.com . Found NOTHING for sale on Lanai (remember at one time I found properties there) and only two condos in Maui, which I thought had hundreds of condos.
Anything at $70,000 would not last long unless there was a good reason not to buy there.
A MLS number would help.
I see about 12 FS, single family homes for sale under 500 on the website I usually look at.(quite a few "pending, continue to show")
I heard people from far away are buying- mainland/world.
Made a call this morning and left a message. My wife took a call back, and I might go see a realtor this week if I have time. He told her that they are making a list of interested people.
I'm not sure if Uncle Larry (lol) buying the place might have changed things. I'm assuming Murdock was selling them- Apts that are being changed to "condos". I heard there are some 2 Bedroom ones too, and they were asking 90-100 for them. Pretty sure they were FS, I wouldn't have even given it a thought if they were LH. The flyer said 80 and I was thinking you might be right and one could be had for less- those were studios/1br.
It might just have been a public relations thing for Murdock to get people to agree to the windmills?
I'll let you know as I find out more.
Larry is pouring money into Lanai, I think things might take off here.(Like Hawaiian jets by Feb..)

IF he wins, the fix is in to take down this country to it's knees. Could happen...this is the good fight. It is up to americans now. They can either let it go, and sit back and watch tv all day long, or stand up for themselves. If they let it go, no matter how, they will never get it back. This is the good fight. We will see how it plays out.

Right now, the way this country is ...not sure it will ever come back anyway. If it starts to go...nobody pays taxes, rights will happen, etc. Heard anything about GREECE lately??

Obama's 2nd-term plans for your paycheck exposed
Specific outline crafted to determine worker's 'value' in private sector

Published: 3 hours ago



PaycheckTwo

An explosive book released today documents how progressive organizations behind White House policy have crafted specific, second-term plans for the federal government to determine the “value” of individual jobs in the private sector instead of allowing employers to pay what they want.

Other second term “economic fairness” plans include concentrating more power with the federal government to rectify “bias” and “discrimination” in the workforce regarding salaries for “equivalent”– but not necessarily equal – jobs in the private sector.

This is in addition to the enactment of a “living wage” that would force all employers to increase the salaries of the nation’s workers to meet “basic needs” such as housing, food, utilities, transportation, health care and recreation.

These schemes, and many more, are documented in “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed.”

The book by New York Times bestselling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott uncovers the template for Obama’s next four years – the actual, extensive plans created by Obama’s own top advisers and progressive strategists.

“Fool Me Twice” unveils all the main areas of Obama’s second-term domestic policy onslaught – jobs, wages, health care, immigration “overhaul,” electoral “reform,” national energy policy, Pentagon plans and more.

‘Economic fairness’

Obama has made “economic fairness” the centerpiece of his second term agenda. The president’s January 2012 State of the Union address called for “equal pay for equal work.”

“Fool Me Twice” uncovers the radical origins of the “economic fairness” mantra as well as Obama’s specific second term “fairness” plans.

Write Klein and Elliott:“One of the most deceptive tricks in Obama’s rhetorical arsenal is his use of the term economic fairness. A prime example of the progressives’ use, in general, of harmless-sounding rhetoric in their advancement of radical objectives, this ‘fairness’ derives directly from the Marxist conception of economic justice.”

Late Harvard professor John Rawls, one of the most important philosophers of liberalism in the twentieth century, named his own theory “justice as fairness.” Some have previously pointed to Rawls’ possible influence over Obama. Rawls calls for ensuring distributive justice of resources.

“Fool Me Twice” documents how progressive groups behind Obama’s first term agenda are now pushing plans, some already attempted in previous progressive Democrat legislation, for a second Obama term push for “Paycheck Fairness” and so-called equal pay fairness.

Originally,“equal pay” legislation, such as the 1963 Equal Pay Act, had the goal of ensuring women would not be paid less for doing the same jobs as men.

part 2/3-

The current progressive concept of equal pay,“Fool Me Twice” relates, would give the government sweeping powers to require employers to compensate workers according to an artificial calculation of a job’s “value” rather than what the private market is willing to pay.

Other powers would allow federal bureaucrats to decide which jobs are underpaid and would require employers to raise wages.

The government would also determine whether “bias” or “discrimination” exists in “equivalent”– but not equal – jobs based on race, sex, sexual orientation and other determining factors.

Warn Klein and Elliott:“In truth, Obama’s progressive conception of fairness is not the classic Marxist one, or Marx was the prophet and theoretician of a revolutionary working class. But today’s neo-socialist progressives have completely abandoned and betrayed the working class, along with small-business owners, in favor of a welfare class, a middle class ever more dependent on government hand-outs, and a progressive, liberal elite.”

Such a welfare system is also in the works.

WND reported last week how “Fool Me Twice” reveals Obama’s second term agenda includes the prescription for the implementation of a higher minimum wage that would “raise the floor for all employees” nationwide.

Such a “living wage”– a pet project of ACORN – was previously attempted in over 80 U.S. cities, many times to disastrous affect.

The progressive groups, already instrumental in influencing Obama’s first-term economic agenda, also call for Obama and Congress to enact a government mandate to force businesses to provide 12 weeks of paid benefits to employees who need time off to care for a new child, a sick family member or their own illness.

Four more years?

Released today by WND Books,“Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed,” unveils all the main areas of Obama’s second-term domestic policy onslaught.

“Just as ‘Unfit for Command’ provided the margin of defeat for John Kerry in 2004,‘Fool Me Twice’ will ensure Obama serves only one term,” said WND Books publisher Joseph Farah.

Just as in 2008, when Obama concealed his true presidential plans behind the rhetoric of ending partisan differences and cutting the federal deficit, his 2012 re-election theme of creating jobs conceals far more than it reveals about his true agenda for a second term.

Most conservative books about Obama focus on his radical background and what he has done until now. A small number of ambitious projects attempt to show what America may look like after four more years of Obama based on generalities and what the president has already done.

While many are expressing general concerns over Obama’s future ambitions,“Fool Me Twice” lays bare the devastating details and consequences of a second Obama term as president.

The book is based on exhaustive research into Obama’s upcoming detailed presidential plans and policies, as well as the specific second-term recommendations of major “progressive” groups behind Obama and the Democratic leadership – the organizations that help craft legislation and set the political and rhetorical agenda for the president and his allies.

Here are a few highlights of dozens and dozens of second-term plans uncovered in “Fool Me Twice’:

Government-funded, neighborhood-based programs to better integrate the newly amnestied immigrants into society, including education centers and health care centers. A “federal solution” to ensure that the amnestied immigrants are treated “equitably” across the United States.
The re-creation of a 21st century version of FDR’s Works Progress Administration program within the Department of Labor that would oversee a massive new bureaucracy and millions of new federal jobs.
Specific plans for a National Infrastructure Bank.This entity would “evaluate and finance infrastructure projects of substantial regional and national importance” and would finance “transportation infrastructure, housing, energy, telecommunications, drinking water, wastewater, and other infrastructures.”
Wresting control of the military budget from Congress by attempting to place an “independent panel” in charge of military spending while slashing the defense budget in shocking ways.
The vastly reduced resources of the U.S. Armed Forces will be spread even thinner by using them to combat “global warming,” fight global poverty, remedy “injustice,” bolster the United Nations and step up use of “peacekeeping” deployments.
A new “green” stimulus program and the founding of a federal “green” bank or “Energy Independence Trust,” which would borrow from the federal treasury to provide low-cost financing to private-sector investments in “clean energy.”
Detailed plans to enact single-payer health care legislation controlled by the federal government.

Aaron Klein is Jerusalem bureau chief for WND and hosts “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s WABC Radio, the nation’s largest talk station. Klein’s program is one of only two weekend shows in the U.S. to make the Talkers Heavy Hundred official list of top American radio shows.

His previous books include “Red Army,”“The Manchurian President,”“The Late Great State of Israel” and “Schmoozing with Terrorists.”

Hairy Reid the HYPOCRITE. "The reason they have a democrat party is that these freaks have to have somewhere to go." -Guru

"Conservatives have begun accusing Reid of hypocrisy for his attacks on Romney. And the Las Vegas Review-Journal — in a somewhat different context — on Monday resurrected a 1974 statement in which Reid said:“Any man or woman who will not be completely candid about his or her finances does not deserve to be in public office.”

Asked about that statement at a news conference Monday in Nevada, Reid responded:“In 1974, I wasn’t in Congress.

“All you have to do is go look,” he added.“I file every year, every stock trade, every piece of land I buy, all the money I have, it has the value of my homes, it’s got it all there.”
