Building the rail not public confidence
Rail leaders must talk sense if they want our confidence
Last week Colleen Hanabusa told Hawaii News Now the top priority of the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation she chairs is “building public confidence.”
“The public has got to feel that HART knows what it’s talking about,” she said.
In the next day’s Honolulu Star-Advertiser, HART’s interim CEO, Lori Kahikina, gave a classic demonstration of how little the rail agency knows its business.
There are not enough incorruptible, competent-at-the-job individuals present in Hawaii’s 1.2 M population to do this. The corruption and incompetence of county governments and state government officials, employees and agents here, proves, beyond a reasonable doubt, that culturally they are incapable of complicated expensive projects. Like asking high school class to conceive, design, build, and operate the space shuttle. Two words “im” “possible”. As impossible me ever running the 100 meter in 5 seconds. Or training a dog to speak a human language. The dog wants to, to please you, but ‘im’ ‘possible’. You can devote all your skill and assets working with the dog and it will never happen. Just as impossible as having competence blossom and spread among government [it is just as true for private sector but I get to chose there] officials, employees and agents. All HART debt is illegitimate debt and since we got no value, should not have to be repaid. The lenders knew of the situation.
