Fix Oahu Now! Panos Prevedouros for Mayor of Honolulu

Let's get to work and Fix Oahu. Now!

The mayor is currently running radio ads preaching the way to reduce traffic congestion is to reduce driving. Check out how social engineering goes in Portland Oregon:

The Failures of Government Planning (Despite the “Best-Laid Plans”), Randal O’Toole, Privatization Watch, Reason Foundation, Vol. 31, 2008

In Portland, Oregon, land use planners ordered a church to allow no more than 70 people to worship in its 400-seat sanctuary on the grounds that letting more people in would encourage too much auto driving. When another Oregon church applied for a permit to expand to accommodate its growing membership, planners agreed to give it the permit on the conditions that it be closed on Saturdays, offer no Sunday evening service, and hold no more than five weddings or funerals a year.

Mufi's way to solve traffic congestion is no way to run the lives and work of people and businesses.

It is the mindset of city officials to tell people what to do. When was the last time you saw Mufi on the bus? With buses going DT from all parts of the island, you would think he would set the example. But then again its for the masses not the privileged.

"ordered a church"
am i too optimistic to think that the church's immediate response was along the lines of "sod off!"

"planners agreed to give it the permit on the conditions ..."
um, isn't that essentially extortion? i knew ore. was lurching socialist but geez ...
