Hello Greg,

  We, the people of the US, are at the mercy of these same
companies. And they are not all US companies. There are
some that are European and Japanese based? I might be wrong,
because I'm not going to look it up at this time, but Phillips,
Gillette, Shell, Daimler Benz, etc? I submit that these
companies are not even the companies of one single nation
anymore, but multi-nationals that owe their allegiance not
to one nation, but primarily to themselves, whose power and
influence extends globally. Have you any idea how much of
Waikiki property is owned by the Japanese?
