More comments from the petition

Mahina Viritua: "This is EXPLOITATION & COMMERCIALIZING our culture, like everything else, and not giving a thing back!!"

Audy Kimura: "The Hawaiian language exists only in one part of the world and the improper use of "Kahuna" denigrates its true meaning. Surely Dodge can find another name which will not offend the Hawaiian culture and those like myself who love and hold it sacred."

Carly Ululani Oliva: "People need to stop viewing the Hawaiian culture as a thing to be used as they please and begin to show respect for a culture that is older than the United States of America."

Marilyn Miller: "Please respect our culture. Thank you"

James K Akaka Sr.: "Please respect our Hawaiian culture."

Cayleb Lorenzo: "we Hawaiian people have deep meanings for our words and the word "Kahuna" has been misused over and over again. Have some respect for our people and our culture. Stop using native names for your money making stratigies. FIND A NEW NAME FOR SUCH AN UGLY CAR!!!!!!"

Kuuipo Enos: "Its embarrassing as it makes our culture look like fools - lack of respect to our culture and people is what I see. Surely they would not allow others to slander or tease their culture."

Perhaps maldito needs to read the signatures in its entirety to see how pissed off some Hawaiians are after the misuse of the word, "Kahuna." I wonder how they would feel about the misuse of the word, "Hapa." They'd probably be pissed off too. Its funny though cuz I had some convos with people who said that the Hawaiians whom they know dont care. Well LOOK. Look da Hawaiians. (That's pidgin by the way.)

Perhaps ululanipunani *L* needs to read the email I sent about spending about a good 40 mins. reading from signature no. 800 something to 1,400 or so. Perhaps we need to read what was ALSO written in Hawn. We also need to read and begin counting how many times people write comments to Dodge saying that they could use another Hawaiian name, like the ones I saw was NALU, ALOHA and a few others. That would be equated (more or less) to HAPA. But don't you dare use this as an opportunity to slap me in the face b/c you know very well my feelings of an introduced word such as kamepiula, hapa, kinipopo (ball), etc. versus words in the Hawaiian language that have been in existence for a good long while like kai uli (deep part of the sea), mana, and even HUNA (to hide) as John Lake mentioned that KA HUNA could mean that too.

Perhaps ululanipunani *L*

Dont slap me in the face with this kine name *L* Anyway my point was that its a Just like "lolo uila." Its the Hawaiian word for computer made by Hawaiians. Just like the word "hapa."

Also it wasnt a slap in your face. You had told me earlier that you going copy the petition in its entirety so that you can read em. So far you nevah read em all so what I did was post excerpts of it. When you pau reading em then you can see more of those types of posts. How can that be a slap to your face? See... I no finish books right away... and I no pay attention to some things but I pay attention to other important things too... like what people stated in this petition. Nothing wrong with that and thats not a slap in your face. If I wanted to slap you in your face I would have but I never. You stated you never have time to read all the sigs.

Oh, I never read the signatures PAST 1,400 something which was basically the signatures that occurred AFTER 4:30 p.m. on Wed. Still neva have time and I forgot to print them out.

Anyway, lolo uila and kamepiula are Hawaiian inventions. Kamepiula was coined by the committee (aha something or other..I think ahahui olelo blah, blah...) who uses KAMEPIULA w/ anything computer related. Computer disk, computer file, computer this and that. Hence the term LOLO UILA which I used to use in the beginning is becoming obsolute.

I never go through all of them either. Whenever I look at the last page like the last update... I read the comments. A few people post stupid remarks... and I wonder why are they signing the petition if they disagree with it? Those no make sense. Anyway had a handful of those but overall I never read all the singatures either. I just look then copy and paste the ones that catch my eye while I reading the latest page. Now I think surpassing 3400.
