    May the Hawaiian Kingdom come again. The Hawaiian Kingdom is not a tribe, it is a Royalist Government rooted in international sovereignty as annotated by the UN-Human Rights council 2018 and the Permanent court of Arbitrations case 1999-01, 2001. And Sandford Dole and Barak Obama was born in the Hawaiian Kingdom not the United States, that's a fact.

    I once thought VICE was going to do some real investigations into the lies we are being told by our Government. The Mainstream Media is as Corrupted as the politicians in Washington, many had hoped VICE would be different. 21 Trillion dollars unaccounted for at the defense department, "No Coverage", almost 10,000 patents being hidden from the public at the patent office, "No Coverage", Anti-Aging and Cancer cures announced in the 1980's and again last year (what happened between 1980 and 2019) "No Coverage". NASA lies about structures on the Moon and Mars, "No Coverage". Over 20 papers released over the last 6 months which are basically saying Dark matter and Dark energy models are dead (Billions spent with nothing found), "No Coverage". Why because they don't want to upset academia. In every case these issues aren't covered because the media is controlled by the CIA or Corporations which want to keep the people working longer for less pay, paying taxes then die without any avenue for escape or the ability to see a brighter future. It's no wonder people do drugs, comment suicide with hatred and sickness on the rise. We're all fed up with the status quo of lies, propaganda and hidden truth.

    • And-yS
      And-yS Month ago

      @Gunner Gomez lol dude chill out, my point is blaming video game, not gun ban. I don’t believe gun ban would do anything, cuz they wouldn’t be able to enforce it to criminals and mentally unstable people. As someone in the esport industry I can tell you how many times people think I’m poisoning kids with video game. The truth is video game is just a form of entertainment, it’s not like kids don’t like game before games are on computer, and I don’t see poking each other with sticks are less violent then shooting fictional enemy on a screen.
      PS: u gotta admit, America’s gun problem is pretty bad when it’s suppose to be the leader of the free world

      And-yS you have no real life experiences. Just like I assumed and pretty much by your statement guessed. I can go on and on with many reasons why you can keep moving and never avoid complete danger. But I’m not here to change your mind. Just don’t be stupid and ask for gun bans when you’re a fuckin clown. You can be minding your business to the fullest extent and be the best person on earth. And still get mugged or robbed anywhere on earth. Man I feel bad for the women who have to be lead by weak men like you.

    Iowa is the second worse state in the union, just one behind Ohio!! Ohio is just a big ass mud puddle, and everyone that lives there broke down in the middle of their trip to California 1850s or too lazy to continue to track and I would also say that about Iowa! I think about Iowa though is this just a big dirty ass secondary mud puddle! It takes a good bit of time to drive through at this boring is all hell! Being a trucker I could never find proper places to get diesel fuel from my rig, and when you pull into those little towns you’re bouncing off phone poles and park cars galore! I specifically choose my loads to avoid Ohio and Iowa!!! The number three worst state in the union you guessed it Indiana! Indiana takes about six hours the drive-through if not seven! It’s dirty, flat, Stupid, filled with cops, and filled with black criminals! No thank you! I do hate MUD PUDDLES! As well as criminals! Black & white ones! I live in a cool spot where there ARE NO people! Just the way I like it

    Piece about Hawaii was interesting. I wonder if Hawaii will be able to survive as an independent nation anymore. They haven't been independent or self-sufficient for quite some time now.

    • Alexis Jankowski
      Alexis Jankowski Month ago

      DeJulius Caesar But if the become a Native Nation, they can claim rights to revenue sources. Being a Native Nation doesn’t necessarily mean an independent country. It’s like the Navajo Nation. They could lose out on Federal funding in some areas, but they would have a claim (and better chance) to retake that mountain as protected by US laws.

      @Alexis Jankowski I don't think they will. It's degrading quite honestly, and if I was Hawaiian myself, I'd oppose it. I can see why so many are upset regarding their current situation. After all, they were literally robbed of their land, identity and country.

    • Alexis Jankowski

      My family had 2 pigs once. There is a reason calling someone a swine or pig describes someone who is very messy. Also in many religions, pigs meat is considered inpure. Pigs are just like that and it is fairly normal for them to wallow in their own shit. They love it. Regarding the plastics, yea idk about that.

    • Marvin Williams
      Marvin Williams Month ago

      @Sean Kula they have a extremely small population of people 3.8 million to be exact. There's no trying on factual information. Their income is below the national average and has been below for the longest time. That's facutal information as well. Have they seen a rise in income since 2016, yes but it's like a couple percent and it's still below the national average. So do you want the title of having the 8th smartest schools and get paid less or get paid more and compromise on school?
