  1. Hawaii’s economy is heavily dependent on tourism. Without tourism, what exports does Hawaii have to take its place?

    Also, what is the asinine idea she has at the 1:54 mark? Limiting visitors to the state, when the state economy is tourism based.

  2. Born and raised since the 80s and all I gotta say is that Oahu is done… Paradise Lost! Tourist no kea and the tour businesses no kea! Tourists come to the island of Oahu for hang loose. DEHNOKEA! Tour businesses making moneh. DEHNOKEA! They spend moneh which is a good thing. When they piss and trash up us local peoples back yahd, das da da big problem. But like I said, DEHNOKEA!!!

  3. Bring UFC to Hawai'i. We have so much local people who are so gifted in marshal arts. Why always rely on tourism. We relied on the pineapple industry. Which at one time was our number 1 source of income before tourism. What happened? Pineapples gone. Open your eyes Hawai'i!!! Come on!!!!

  4. ALOHA KEAKUA!
    MAHALO NUI LOA KEAKUA!
    ALOHA IS JESUS AND JESUS IS LOVE
    GOD The CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH IS LOVE! God blessed us with a BEAUTIFUL AINA ~ HAWAI’I ~ HA is breath of life
    God is an AMAZING GOD
