He nui hou aku nā hana no'eau nani, a no laila, e ho'omau 'ia ke kama'ilio 'ana aku i kekahi wā. Akā, inā he mana'o kou e māka'ika'i aku i kēia hō'ike'ike 'o ka 3Rs: Respect, Responsibilities & Re-righting, e ‘oni koke aku ka moku i ka Hale Waihona Puke 'o Lama, 'oiai, 'o ka lā 10 o Iune, kēia Pō'akolu a'e ho'i, 'o ia ka lā hope loa.

The expression "3 Rs" belongs only to English language. It makes no sense in Hawaiian or any other language. Indeed, there is no letter "R" in the written Hawaiian language as invented by the missionaries and enforced by the UH language cops. Using that expression in a Hawaiian language essay is a form of cultural appropriation. In Hawaiian the acronym would be HKM (heluhelu, kakau, makemakika). In addition to Readin', Ritin', and 'Rithmetic, here's another 3 Rs concept: "Hawaiian Bones -- The 3 Rs -- Rites For the Dead, Rights Of the Living, and Respect for All"

The last "R" should have been Re-writing. As in rewriting the factual history to the revisionist history they teach at the U of H!

holokukae -- how many wives did Kamehameha The Great have, and what were their names?

konki, what has the number of wives Kamehameha had have to do with the claim of title of these Islands by america via a "joint resolution"???? konki, why should anyone consider your version of the legal procedure of america claim of title to these Islands superior to their own (america) justice department legal division opinion in 1988 where they concluded----- "The constitutionality of the annexation of Hawaii, by a simple act (joint resolution) was strenuously contested.... Not withstanding these objections, congress approved the joint resolution and mc kinley signed the measure in 1898. .....It is therefore unclear which constitutional power congress exercised when it acquired Hawaii by "JOINT RESOLUTION". u.s department of justice opinions of the office of legal counsel. vol. 12, pg 238-263, October 4, 1988---so konki for the 24th time, what was your proof again????

holokukae, what does your stooped repeat question about annexation have to do with the topic of Solis' essay (the 3 Rs) or my comment on it? You love to throw in non-sequiturs for people to waste time on. I am not the straight-man to your comedy schtick.

What they didn't teach David Sai at the U Of H: A treaty is an agreement under international law entered into by actors in international law, namely sovereign states and international organizations. A treaty may also be known as an (international) agreement, protocol, covenant, convention, pact, or exchange of letters, among other terms. Regardless of terminology, all of these forms of agreements are, under international law, equally considered treaties and the rules are the same. In the United States, the term "treaty" has a different, more restricted legal sense than exists in international law. United States law distinguishes what it calls treaties from executive agreement, congressional-executive agreements, and sole executive agreements. All four classes are equally treaties under international law; they are distinct only from the perspective of internal American law. The distinctions are primarily concerning their method of approval. Whereas treaties require advice and consent by two-thirds of the Senate, sole executive agreements may be executed by the President acting alone. Some treaties grant the President the authority to fill in the gaps with executive agreements, rather than additional treaties or protocols. And finally, Congressional-Executive Agreements require majority approval by both the House and the Senate, either before or after the treaty is signed by the President. The Treaty that accepted the unanimously voted on Treaty Offer by the Polynesian Dominated Republic of Hawaii was introduced by a Congressman (Newlands), NOT the President. Therefore it was called a Congressional-Executive Agreement, but the result from the International perspective is the same, it was a Treaty. Search: "Congressional-Executive Agreements"

konki, still avoiding answering my question. and konki and joker, what part of ---"it is therefore unclear which constitutional power congress exercised when it acquired Hawaii by "JOINT RESOLUTION"---don't you understand???? ----"It lies within the power of congress to authorize the president substantially to "MODIFY" the united states domestic and international legal obligations under a "PRIOR" treaty , including an arms control treaty" (see memorandum opinion for the special assistant to the president and legal adviser to the national security council,November 25, 1996. google: Validity of "congressional-executive agreements" that substantially "MODIFY" the united states obligations under an "EXISTING" treaty)---joker what "MODIFICATIONS" and what "EXISTING" treaty are you referring to???

"the United States is run by laws and, and the little thing called the constitution". That is exactly what I have been telling you joker and maybe finally you are starting to get it. Finally, it looks like there is some hope for you. So joker what "constitutional provision" was used to claim title to these Islands???

Poor holokanaka, It is now widely accepted that a Congressional-Executive agreement is a complete alternative to a treaty: the president can seek approval of any agreement by joint resolution of both Houses of Congress instead of by a two-thirds vote of the Senate alone. Like a treaty, such an agreement is the law of the land, superseding inconsistent state laws as well as inconsistent provisions in earlier treaties, other international agreements, or acts of Congress.

again joker you are not answering my question. are you punking out again??? and by the way the u.s. justice department, does not accept that a "congressional-executive agreement is a COMPLETE ALTERNATIVE to a treaty". as I have pointed out to you joker it is for MODIFYING an EXISTING treaty not for annexation or claiming title to another sovereign nation and their lands.. so joker are you or are you not going to answer my question: what u.s. constitutional provision did america use to claim ownership to these Islands????

I find it interesting that someone who claims that Hawaii is not part of the U.S. tries to use existing U.S. Federal Law to prove their point. Of course David Sai has already lost using these same points in a court of law. Holokanaka just grasps at straws.
