Also I read this comment by a younger Hawaiian:
"Those who are in the armed forces are no longer a true Hawaiian. They converted themselves and handed themselves to the very ones who stole our nation like 2 dollar whore.
They cannot compose the Hawaiian kingdom and befriend the enemy at one time."
I don't know why some of our Hawaiian youth are judgmental of other Hawaiians. Especially with their choice in surviving. What can I say? I could only say this:
"I urge you to be very careful with your words. Some Hawaiians here have sons and daughters some people's fathers are retired military who are in the armed forces active or retired. You do not want to alienate them or else they will attack you. Like in Kau."
Some of our Hawaiian youth (I said SOME) are acting like some (I said SOME) of our Haole oppressors. Judging those Hawaiians who serve/d the U.S. for whatever reason. It's their choice. If only other people respected it.
In any case I do not work for the U.S. government nor will I because I don't wish to work for the very government who helped to destroy my people but I still like being American. America and Americans are not interchangeable and not all Americans are alike.
Some are cool. Some are uncool but I don't like that attitude that these Hawaiians are not Hawaiian because they choose to survive.
Then again I have money now while most Hawaiians do not. That attitude only serves to alienate and hurt other Hawaiians. It doesn't hurt other Americans.
That's why sometimes I wonder... perhaps I shouldn't help other Hawaiians. Why should I when some of them (I said SOME) are pilau.
Then I think back to my roots. I will not make the innocent pay for what the guilty have done. That is NOT the Hawaiian way.
Anyway I called my mom to tell her we may be "buying" that property. She is happy because she wants us to return to Seattle to live LOL Well I leave the DC area tomorrow. When I get back (i.e. return LOL) to Home Home I'll try to post pics and I took lots of pics. At this rate though... my Hilo summer home will be put off since it will cost me about $400,000. I don't know when I'll be able to do that but the other property in the Seattle area has top priority because if we don't get it now it will create more problems. At least with the Hilo property it's "ours" and we can build anytime. Or at least til I get all the money to do so hahaha The USED Mercedes is out for now :( Which makes my face sad but I don't have much of a choice. If we don't buy the property now we will never have another chance. But f*ck man... I don't know how I'm going to do it! But I will do it. I don't have a choice but overall my life is good. It's better than being on welfare like how we were when I was 6 til 9 years old. I will never go on welfare again. Being hungry is not a good feeling.
