Hawaii houses one of the largest and most powerful military complexes in the world,but more than a third of Kamaaina high schoolers failed a 2010 military entrance exam, and Larry Ellison is said to be a positive for Lanai.
Bob: Really, there are jobs out their - some are low level but without a good education that is where you start. I am surprised the Yahoo article speaks to the welfare programs that make it worthwhile not to work and drug users not getting companies to take a risk with them. Unions have caused some of our problems with high wages for doing little work and our big government hiring people that cannot do their job. Together it creates a work force that is relatively high paid without the right skill set. And our politicians get richer, and with an inept President we go backwards rather then ahead. We need good leadership and maybe a business attitude. You read that our government budgets for fraud and abuse - no kidding. You read about federal government mistakes that cost us millions without any accountability; you read about illegal aliens being given US citizenship by mistake; you read about promises and more promises, and more lies but nothing changes.
