Welina mai e nā hoa makamaka heluhelu o Kauakūkalahale. E ha'i mai i ku'u nane, ku'u wahi holoholona 'āhiu hele pū me ke kanaka, a inā nō e loa'a, e pepehi 'ia ana a make, a inā nō na'e 'a'ole e loa'a, e ho'iho'i 'ia i ka hale e noho pü ai. Na ka 'eleu nō ia e ho'omaopopo. 'O wai lā ho'i 'oukou e nā keiki o Kalae mai?

I kēlā pule aku nei, ua pū'iwa maila ko 'oukou wahi mea kākau. I ke kalaiwa 'ana i kekahi pā'ina, nānā akula au i ke aniani kïlohi. 'O ko'u 'ike akula nō ia i nā hoa li'ili'i he nui hewahewa e mana'o nei paha e hele pū mai me a'u i ka pā'ina. I ia 'ike 'ana i ua mau hoa li'ili'i nei, pau ihola ko'u 'i'ini e hele i ka pā'ina. 'O ka huli koke akula nō ia a ho'i aku i kauhale. 'A'ole i kono 'ia ua po'e hoa nei e hele i ka pā'ina a 'a'ohe po'e ma ka pā'ina e hau'oli i ka 'ike mai i kēia 'ano hoa li'ili'i.

No ia pule holo'oko'a, ma kahi o nā hana ma'a mau, he nui nā hana e pono ai ka ho'oma'ema'e 'ana i nā mea i ho'ohaumia 'ia e ua po'e hoa li'ili'i nei. 'O nā lole 'oe, 'o nā uluna 'oe, 'o ka moena, a me nä mea like he nui aku nō. Eia na'e, 'o ka mea i 'oi a'e kona komo hewa 'ia, 'o ia nō ko'u lauoho. Ua pono e 'ako 'ia ku'u lauoho lō'ihi, ka mea ku'uwelu mau mai ma luna o ko'u mau po'ohiwi, a pōkole.

Ma muli o ke kaumaha, he nui hou aku nā hana ma'a mau i hana 'ole 'ia. I ko'u 'ike 'ana i ka 'eu mai o ua mau hoa nei i luna o ko'u lauoho, ua kelepona au i ku'u kaikaina. Noho pū māua i ka lumi ho'okahi, no laila, hō'ike koke akula au iā ia i hiki iā ia ke maka'ala 'o ka hō'ea mai o ua po'e hoa nei ma kona lauoho. 'A'ole na'e pēlā. Ua pakele 'o ia i ia luhi!

Nui ke kōkua o ku'u kaikaina a me ko'u mau hoa aloha i ko'u wā küpiliki'i. I kēlā me kēia lā, kahi maila lākou i ko'u lauoho me ka huli aku ho'i i nā 'uku. Eia hou, ua maopopo iā lākou he mea ho'olu'ulu'u na'au ka 'ako 'ia o ko'u lauoho a pōkole, a no laila, ua lilo lākou i hoa 'alo pū i ka 'ïnea a ua paipai mau mai ia'u a lana mai ka mana'o no ka hiki hou mai o nā lā hau'oli. Ua kōkua mai ho'i lākou i ka hana 'ana i ka'u mau ha'awina i hō'alo 'ia ma muli o ka nui o ke kaumaha.

Eia mai nō ka mea 'āpiki. 'A'ole ia he mea mau ia'u ka hō'ike aku i ko'u mahalo i ka po'e nāna au e kōkua mai. He mana'o ko'u ua lawa au ia'u iho a ua 'ae'oia ho'i. Ma muli na'e o ka nui o ke kōkua a ko'u mau hoa a me ko'u kaikaina i ka ho'omanawanui 'ana i kēia pilikia, no laila, ua maopopo, ke 'ole ko lākou kōkua, pilikia maoli nō au. No laila, he wahi mahalo kēia i ko'u mau hoa aloha a me ko'u kaikaina. He mea nui ka mahalo ma ka mālama 'ana i nā pilina maika'i o nā hoa a me nā 'ohana, a pau pū ho'i me ke Akua. Mai nānā wale i nā mea 'ino. Ma kēlā me kēia mea pilikia, aia kekahi ha'awina e a'o ai.

So, the ants who come to my picnic, and the roaches who prowl my kitchen countertop, should be welcomed as God's creatures and honored guests from whom I can learn lessons by observing their hard work and perseverance. By eating my food they give me food for thought. It's all good. No whack um wit da slippah. He kolamu kupaianaha keia.

He is such a fake, a phony. He was just complaining how these columns are almost impossible to understand and how the authors use Hawaiian that is not "real" Hawaiian and how it is a secret code. Now all of a sudden, after I call him out for falsely claiming to speak Hawaiian with moderate fluency (LAUGH!) he suddenly pretends that he can understand the columns as if they are children stories. He really knows how to open mouth and insert foot.

You David Rogers is the only children's story in the room. What do you have to say about the column? Do you ever have an original idea? Or, do you just attack people with your usual worthless comments? Answer: YES!

Learn English. You can start with the proper conjugation of the verb to be and then move on to much harder things, like the difference between their, there, and they're.

This comes from someone who calls me a "red diaper dooper baby" and thus cannot be taken seriously.
