30 meter telescope is ongoing. This issue will not rest. The police officers involved were not paid. So they’re upset. Unreal. They are still fighting over a piece of land. After all these years. I was reading in a history book, the Bayonet constitution of 1887 took away the powers of the Hawaiian Monarchy and gave it to the U.S. government by way of King David Kalakaua’s signature on it. Saying a provisional government had been formed. And that the powers to the Hawaiian kingdom was weakened when the provisional government was recognized and the military for the Monarchy was stripped of its powers. That it played no role in the provisional government. Of which made up of both Hawaiians and mainlanders. This was in 1887. Starting the decline of the so called Hawaiian Monarchy.
