Vintage Cave

February 27th, 2014

State Sen. David Ige has scheduled a fundraiser on Thursday evening for his Democratic primary campaign for governor.

The recommended contribution for the event, being held at Vintage Cave, is $3,000 per person.

Ige has struggled to raise money in his primary against Gov. Neil Abercrombie, but the senator has been buoyed by recent poll results that show him potentially competitive against the governor.

    I'm a State worker. If I did what she did, I'd probably be subjected to a fitness exam. Elected officials are not so special that they are immune to physical or mental ailments. She needs to be examined to determine if she is mentally fit for the job.

    Let me get this straight. The Democrats took control of the Legislature 60 years ago, in 1954. Jack Burns refused to join the Pacific Club because it had been the exclusive club of the Big 5 missionary business elite.

    The Democrats have lost their way. Former fiery liberal, Neil Abercrombie, became Governor and he, too, lost his way, becoming cozy with development interests and the GMO companies, the new plantations. Noting the backlash against Abercrombie, David Ige decides to challenge Abercrombie. And his first fundraiser is staged at an even more exclusive Club than the Pacific Club had ever been. Membership in this exclusive club cost $500,000:

    Not a good sign that Ige will put the Democrats back on the right path. In fact, it is stunning. But apparently, this is the favored haunt of the wealthiest elite among the Democratic Old Boy Network. Their LAIR, so to speak, in the dark, out of sight, hidden from the stares of the not only working people, but the middle class, the professionals and even most of the 1%. Are we really THAT lost?

    Tea party was born in 2009.

    There was a women in office recently
    who could not make decisions on her own
    and needed the public to vote.
    A republican who controlled Hawaii.

    Too much right, talking.
