Doesn’t Hawaii know that the goal of governance is to kill its residents like common Floriduhans, Texans, and
South Dakoters South Doh!koters*? What’s wrong with them?
Hawaii Gov. David Ige pleaded with tourists from around the world on Monday to not visit the islands through at least the end of October, as the state grapples with an influx of coronavirus cases from residents and vacationers who brought the virus with them. Although the governor’s announcement does not prohibit travelers from visiting Hawaii, Ige (D) said at a news conference that he is working with airlines, hotels, and other tourism-related businesses to “do what they could” to curb tourism to the state except for people traveling for essential business. Restaurant capacity has been restricted, and access to rental cars is limited.
Hawaii is a state that runs on tourism, so that’s a pretty bold positioning of people over profits. What kind of governance is that?! DeSantis is laughing evilly at you, Hawaii (well, OK, that’s all he knows to do), and…
The announcement comes as hundreds of out-of-state health-care workers are being flown in to help overwhelmed hospitals during the fourth wave of the pandemic. Hawaii will receive $46 million in federal funding for more than 500 traveling health-care workers to be dispatched at hospitals statewide. The Queen’s Health Systems—which declared an “internal state of emergency” Friday after a spike in COVID-19 patients forced the island of Oahu to set up a 25-bed tent outside a West Oahu hospital—welcomed 81 out-of-state health-care workers to its hospitals Monday, the Star-Advertiser reported.
The thing to note is that not every island in the state even have a hospital and so it sometimes comes to pass that very ill people have to be transported over water to one of the bigger islands.
I’m sure that the same selfish mother eff’ers who are freedumbing themselves to death are still going to go to Hawaii, and for kicks probably punch a few flight attendants along the way.
UPDATE 1: Associated Press says we need to add Arkansas to the list of states killing their citizens –
“Arkansas on Tuesday ran out of intensive care unit beds for COVID-19 patients for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic began, Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) announced, as a surge in cases continued overwhelming hospitals in the state.”
