With no help coming soon here in Hawaii, Florida is looking good, REALLY good and I think my family and I will be relocating there later this year

Florida, however, sounds like a beacon of warmth, of welcome, and of love. Property costs are extremely reasonable, tax rates exciting, and best of all, NO personal income taxes. That is absolutely wonderful. The less taxes we have to pay the better it is for us to sell everything including all fixtures and equipment and to relocate on the other side of the country in a place that has all the feeling of home.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 642

Aloha, Hawaii, thanks to misguided COVID-19 policies, Hawaiians are abandoning ship…

Honolulu, HI 96782, 02-04-2021 Thursday:  I heard back from my hubby down in Florida last night and he is selling me on the idea of a move to Tampa, Clearwater, or St. Petersburg, noting that any of them would be wonderful places where we could reestablish our restaurant business albeit in a slightly different format: fast food Polynesian-Hawaiian-Asian Fusion grill what with a drive-through window for fast and easy pickup.  Although we have run a sit-down restaurant in the Honolulu area for many years now, there is not much point in remaining in a place that may never recover anytime soon.   I mean, things are going to continue getting worse before they get better- if they get better- which most of us now doubt that it ever will thanks to one-party political control.  What makes it worse is that it’s MY party doing the damage.   

The state of Hawaii has two employers: tourists who fund our hotels, restaurants, rentals, and the sports that rely on them.  The second employer is government, local, state, and federal as well as the military which has bases across the islands.  While government and the military aren’t going anywhere, without the tourists, there is NO way we can ever recover, even if the switch is suddenly thrown, the floodgates immediately opened, and they suddenly come pouring back into the Islands.  There is no way for a swift recovery.

With no tourists coming in, one would think the state government would lower tax rates but sadly, that is not the case.   Same for property taxes, use taxes, and the like, the tax burdens remain as do excessively high prices so there is not much point in remaining in our home state when our home state is doing little to nothing to help employers or the people. 

Florida, however, sounds like a beacon of warmth, of welcome, and of love.  Property costs are extremely reasonable, tax rates exciting, and best of all, NO personal income taxes.   That is absolutely wonderful.  The less taxes we have to pay the better it is for us to sell everything including all fixtures and equipment and to relocate on the other side of the country in a place that has all the feeling of home. 

Something else that sweetens the deal for my family is the fact that Florida is wide open while Hawaii is not.  Thanks to their governor and his administration, they have kept things up and running and cases of COVID-19 and rates of coronavirus-related deaths are no different there than they are here.  The only difference is we’re closed and they’re not.   And I thought my party claimed to be the party that listens to science whereas the other side does not.  I wish Governor Ige and his administration would ‘listen to science.’

We are not sure as to how quickly we can sell our home and business here, get everything loaded aboard a Matson barge and shipped to Los Angeles, California.  From there, everything would have to be loaded aboard moving trucks and trucked clear across the country to the Sunshine State.  While a move such as this would be a monumental pain in the you know where, I think we could quickly readjust to our new home and get our business up and running to the point we might recoup our costs by 2024.

Something else that grates on my nerves is the fact that yes, Joe Biden has indeed lied.  You see the hashtag everywhere- ‘Biden Lied’- one that points out how many times he promised he was going to get $2,000 checks into the hands of the American people.  Once he wins the White House, it’s down to $1,400 and possibly less while people making loads of money are going to be able to get their hands on this cash, too.  It makes no sense.

Our employees are dependent upon unemployment insurance which in the Aloha State is never sufficient to keep one’s head above the roiling waters.  Worse, people have been out of work for nearly a year thanks to China’s mismanagement of the coronavirus so the domino effect is destroying many lives.  The reason why 80 million Americans voted for President Biden is because they believed he was in their corner.  Now, they understand he’s not which is even more challenging when it comes to trying to support him.  Add to that his stance on abortion and Houston, we have a problem, a BIG problem, because Mormons are as PRO-LIFE as it comes.

We will pick back up tomorrow.  I will see you then.

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 nineteenth album, “Sweeping up the Spotlight—live at the Fillmore East, 1969,” hit record store shelves on July 21, 2007 and was still another live recording the vault curator 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.  When this album underwent recording, the Airplane had been on the road for most of the year, including a stop at the famous Woodstock Art and Music Festival at Yasgur’s Farm.  The classic lineup is on this album but soon changes would be in the offing.  This is a GREAT recording, however, and we urge everyone to get it.  Please, visit the Amazon.com Website so you can pick it up at the price, the condition, and the format, that is perfect for YOU.
