This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — If we had to sell a state to pay off the national debt, which should it be?

Steve delivers the ruling of the Council, joined by Chloe, Tom, David, and Djere:

Hawaii — it’d fetch a tremendous price, it wouldn’t give a foreign nation a foothold on our mainland, and it lacks Alaska’s tremendous resources.


Erin dissents, joined by Mike:

The entire Eastern Seaboard. It would bring the most yield and be least missed.


Connie dissents:

Arkansas — because they must be held responsible.


MC-B dissents:

California. Riddled with earthquakes and hippies, getting rid of it can only due us good. We’ll move Silicon Valley somewhere else.


Josh and Job played no part in the determination of this issue.

Next time: Which kitchen appliance, besides the fridge, do we appreciate the most?
