Idk

IMO the correct response would have been to return Hawaii to the Hawaiians and to sink the rest of our naval hardware.

IDK. Pretty sure the Hawaiians are pretty happy being a US state, if not for cash influx alone.

And Spam.

If Frown had lived in WWII, the only thing that would have affected him would have been if Beefheart had been playing a gig at Pearl Harbor and got killed. Then he would have taken on the Japs single-handed!

Last I checked Hawaii wasn't a state when Japan bombed it.

I'm not even gonna read about the latest school shootings or try to de-bunk them. Kids are fucked up because the nuclear family unit is being destroyed and they are being poisoned with sodium fluoride in their tap water and mercury [among other harmful adjuvants] in their vaccines. We need to stop being REACTIONARY and look at the ROOT of the problems. Our current wage labor system is fucked up. Jobs that people used to perform have become automated. The industrial revolution was supposed to give people more free time, but if they have no money, they are fucked. A universal basic income is a GREAT idea. It fills the gap that automated jobs have created.
