    Hawaii town tells state travel agency: Stop sending tourists here

    Yahoo!

    The board is upset about a thriving industry of bed-and-breakfast and vacation rentals that are leased out short-term without permits. The board says these places deplete Kailua's already limited supply of housing, inflating costs and putting homes out of reach of those born and raised in town.

    Neighbors don't like having a stream of strangers staying next door. "It doesn't feel like a neighborhood when you don't know the people there," board member Lisa Marten said. "If there's any sort of safety issue, there's no one to ask for help because you don't know them."
    Libertarians: The freemarket broke it. It'll also fix it. Then break it again. Stop oppressing and enslaving me.

    Constitutionalists: The constitution doesn't say anything that bars me from making you feel unsafe!

    Conservatives: This goes against every idea of community I have, and I wouldn't want it in my neighborhood - but I'll support it if liberals
    hate it.

    Liberals: Simple. We ban tourism across the US.

    Moderates: Maybe, there's a way for people to leave their homes when tourists are around? Everyone is happy.

    Other: I think the government CIA funded worms are to blame and a cartoon should be drawn on the matter. People are going to wake up.

    In other words-liberals want a bigger slice of the pie, and will restrict individuals from engaging in commerce if they dont come around.

    Great story, and a very insightful look into the debate between the rights of the whole versus the one or the few.

    You missed the point. Hatuey made snarky comments about almost every ideology, which I thought were both very close to correct, and damned hilarious.

    Any comments on the moral of the story? (FYI, I'm a pretty conservative guy when it comes to private property rights and rights of commerce and free enterprise.)

    I'm going to go ahead and say you didn't understand the point of the post.
