In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

    1. Is it the oil issue? In other words what does an Interior Minis. do?
      If anyone know why this little meeting is important to cram in before his long………citizen paid trip to the Islands, please let me know.

    2. You got it. The Saudis have been alarmed about the oil independence of the US (and the rest of the world) for a long time. They’ve seen this one coming and have spent millions creating scary stories–ads and TV “news”– about the “evils” of fracking, etc. They see this as a direct threat to their wastrel lives and the high lifestyle they’ve become accustomed to.

      1. So here comes a Saudi big shot who’s going to try to persuade Obama to put a stop to this fracking business. You know good and well that’s the agenda for this 11:45 meeting. Obama owes the Saudis a LOT, and they’ve come to collect.

    1. Most private schools start Christmas vacation mid-next week so I expect what you heard is true.

      Shall we have a Friday game: how many planes will it take to get the Obama Family to Hawaii?

      1. We will have no idea; the best we’ll know is whether or not they take AF1 together.

        I have a buddy who did air traffic logistics for the military. He used to tell us how many plans, etc, it took to move Obama and his shit to hawaii. It was amazing.

        1. Of course! Dogs, dog walkers, dog poop pickup staff, dog food. Then there are golf clubs, housekeeping staff, cooking staff, Mo’s bikini collection, kids, kids friends, grandma, Frito Lay truck. List is endless.

    2. Here it is:

      US Coast Guard, Police, Prepare for First Family’s Holiday Arrival

      KAILUA – The now familiar signs that President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, daughters Sasha and Malia and First Dogs will be arriving in Hawaii for Christmas are appearing in the close knit beachside community on Oahu’s windward side.

      On Wednesday, Honolulu police conducted roadside drills along the route the President’s caravan takes, from the H-1 Freeway beginning around the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam area, over the H-3 Freeway off-ramp and into Kailua.

      On Tuesday, U.S. Coast Guard officials went door-to-door, informing Kailua residents who live along the canal and ocean near the Obama rentals, that waterways will be closed to the public between Dec. 18 and Jan. 5.

      All boats must be removed from the canal and there will be no recreational use, such as canoe and kayak paddling or stand up paddling, in the popular area where the U.S. Coast Guard officials will soon patrol.

      A nearby favorite surf spot in Kailua Bay will also be closed during the President’s visit.

      U.S. Secret Service agents have been performing security checks in the neighborhood in and around Kailuana Place where the private homes are located.

      While no official plans have been released, area residents believe the Obamas will arrive possibly as early as Dec. 20, just after daughters Sasha and Malia begin their winter break.

      Some renting homes to the President’s friends told Hawaii Reporter they must be out of their homes between Dec. 22 and Jan. 4.

      The President, who spent much of his childhood in Hawaii, returns annually to Kailua for his Christmas holiday, a tradition he’s kept since first being elected to the nation’s highest office.

  1. Obama discusses the upcoming meetings with his motherinlaw: “Oh, these Saudi guys, well, they are good and nice dictators in my opinion. Well, public beheadings, hangings of homosexuals, oppression of women, suppression of free speech, slavelike conditions for guest workers, that´s nothing to talk about at least not with them, whereas that Russian guy, well, he is an evil dictator, don´t you see that ? Because, just think of those rules during the Sootchi Games, you couldn´t freely manifest your homosexuality because they thought that could be harmful to the children ? By the way, that´s why I couldn´t, oh forget about it. Just think about it , I am so upset !! And those poor Pussy Riot girls. It doesn´t matter that some old religious folks were upset because the girls violated the church room with their manifestation, what matters is that their free speech was suppressed ! Oh, they both have oil , therefor I overlook some details in the land of the Saudis but as we haven´t managed to tame and domesticate the Russian oil production yet, I have a somewhat other perspective here.”

    1. and an Interior Minister as well — what is that — Minister of the Interior(physical) or Minister of the Interior (police). Wouldn’t put anything past Obama.

        1. Mandy I just saw your clip a second after I read and responded to Gracepmc.
          Pulled up the clip: It states, They discussed common interest.
          Does not state what their common interest are.
          If anyone finds out the reason for these meetings, please let us know.

    1. When I heard the number 1.1 trillion my first thought was Obama finally gets to pay back all his donors with OUR tax money.

      The new Congress is sworn in on Jan 6, I’ll give them a month to fix the mess they’ve made against the peoples’ will.

      1. What are you expecting them to do to “fix” this. Just heard Karl Rove on Fox — made me want to throw a shoe. He kept talking about the Republican leadership “strategy” and return to regular order and Bill Hemmer, to his credit, kept asking what about the voters who rejected the Dems and are responsible for the R majority — it was very clear, at least in this conversation, that the voters and the public are of no consequence. Rove can hardly contain his glee at being top dog. So how do you correct the trillion dollar, 1700 page bill that might just have well be a democrat one?

  2. People out west. If there is low water in the street. Be careful. Stay off the street even if it looks low. It can be low on one street and be slightly higher enough to stop your car from running a block down.
    Unless you are told to evacuate, stay off the flooded streets. I have been in that situation with the car stalling, had men help me push it out of the water, and I cupped the water out with a plastic cup. One cup at a time.
    We called it the May 5th flood. I walked in water for blocks passing stalled cars in water. Four woman and I all in dresses hoped on the back of a flatbad eighteen wheeler. He gave us a ride. When I got to my son’s school. the truck driver handed me a twenty. My young son and I ate dinner at the school. Finally a cab was able to get to us. Gave us a ride to my brother’s n law’s and we spent the night there.
    Be careful everyone. If you have pictures, important paper on low parts of cabinets, lockers, etc., pick them up, and put them up higher.
    Years ago another flood time, I got just a couple of inches that started to creep into my living room. I ran in the kitchen got the big cans of vegetables, found paint cans and my son and I lifted the sofa, coffee table, etc. on top of the cans. We were able to save all furniture from the water. Be careful.
