How do prison inmates and staff rate getting the COVID-19 vaccine ahead of Hawaii’s chronically ill, the disabled, and elderly family members, not to mention teachers and students?

Something is not right about this and I fear that governors such as David Ige are using the COVID-19 pandemic as a means of ‘social engineering.’ I fear that prisoners and jail/prison staffers will be given dibs on getting vaccinated first while our seniors, disabled, and chronically ill will be held at arm’s length until most of them die. After all, these people ‘cost the state’ far more healthcare dollars to maintain or so they believe.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 643

In Hawaii, family is important, extremely important…

Honolulu, HI 96782, 02-03-2021 Wednesday:  Next week is the week when the second ‘impeachment trial’ begins in the U.S. Senate and it is clear to many that Democrats in leadership were expecting a different sort of response from the public- namely everybody cheering them on.  I think following the outrageous mess we witnessed on January 6, 2021, what with the Trump supporters storming the Capitol Building after Trump told them to go there and do that, they have had no choice other than to keep the National Guard in the nation’s capital and to maintain the fencing and barbed wire encircling Capitol Hill lest we’re forced to witness a much more violent repeat of what we had the misfortune of observing last month.    

Don’t get me wrong, we do not see all Trump supporters as evil because millions of normal people support him, too.  As I have said both this week and in past posts, he did many things with which, my family and I agreed such as giving us the best economy anyone has seen since the late 1980s and 1990s.  We were making money hand over fist and we had hopes of continuing to make money until the Wuhan Virus began sweeping the globe. 

Whether we believe Trump failed to act in time or he did, we must applaud him pushing rules and regulations aside so we could get a vaccine program on steroids underway.  We are amazed at how quickly American scientists were able to pull this stunning feat off but the problems began when moving the vaccines out to the American people seemed to freeze up to the point where very few have gotten them outside of jail staffers and inmates when seniors and the chronically ill should have been first in line.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t begrudge inmates and jailers getting the vaccines because of the close proximity in which these people live and work.  We have three correctional facilities on Oahu- Oahu Community Center, Halawa Correctional Facility, and Waiawa Correctional Facility where numerous inmates and prison officials have contracted the virus. 

Likewise, inmates and workers at the Women’s Community Correctional Facility in Honolulu County as well as the Kauai Community Correctional Facility have tested positive as they have on the Big Island.  This insidious disease seems to hit certain populations in the islands while leaving others alone. 

The problem is there are so many people here in the 50th state who have preexisting conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and lung ailments.  Unlike living in the American Southwest, the high humidity here can cause extreme respiratory problems for those at sea level.  People with breathing issues find greater relief living Upcountry on Maui than they do in the congestion of Honolulu and Honolulu County. 

If you have never visited us, Honolulu and the surrounding cities and towns are much like visiting the Southland in California where one moves from one city to the next without ever leaving urban areas so cases of COVID-19 are much more prevalent.  However, the sooner we can get everyone vaccinated the sooner we can get back to normal life which for the tightknit community that we are is extremely critical. 

The problem is the Department of Health seems to be ignoring the people who need immunizations more so than those doing time in one of our lockups.  Teachers must get inoculated ASAP so they can return to teaching our kids, most of whom are struggling to stay abreast in their studies.  Likewise, senior citizens seem to be at the back of the line when in fact, the hospitalization rate for those 60 and older is said to be 34-percent and higher while they account for 13-percent of all COVID-19 deaths.

Something is not right about this and I fear that governors such as David Ige are using the COVID-19 pandemic as a means of ‘social engineering.’  I fear that prisoners and jail/prison staffers will be given dibs on getting vaccinated first while our seniors, disabled, and chronically ill will be held at arm’s length until most of them die.  After all, these people ‘cost the state’ far more healthcare dollars to maintain or so they believe.

In Hawaii, family is important, extremely important.  We hope this is not the case.

See you tomorrow.

Up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, Simone, created this cartoonish caricature of me so we can keep our identities on the down low due to increasing threats, Web intrusions and threats, and so we do not lose our professional businesses because of our politics here at the AICP-END Blogs. 

That said, I began my career in the early 1970’s when I apprenticed to cook under one of the masters on the Big Island where I was born.  I moved to Oahu in the early 1980’s after having worked in both Kona and Hilo, HI, and have been there for most of my professional career. 

Moreover, I have also worked on Maui for a few years (1995-1998) and have been on Kauai (2001-2003) before returning to Honolulu.  My goal is to prepare the next generation of chefs for the future and to help the underprivileged in their struggle to attain careers in the foodservice industry.

We continue offering CDs today by the greatest San Francisco band of all time, the Jefferson Airplane.  The band’s eighteenth album, “Live at the Fillmore East,” hit record store shelves on April 29, 2009 and was yet another live recording the curators of the vault released for the fans’ listening enjoyment.  Now, we will admit that we did not put these in the order that we should but tried to keep the JA albums together and then present the Jefferson Starship following the original band.  Here, we have the classic lineup of Grace Slick (vocals), Paul Kantner (rhythm guitar/vocals), Jack Casady (bass), Marty Balin (vocals), Jorma Kaukonen (lead guitar/vocals), and Spencer Dryden (drums).  We urge you to visit the Amazon.com website, so you can pick it up at the price that is perfect for YOU.
