Some thoughts...no flame

Korea has been fighting since before WW Two.

China wants a North Korea because if a unified South Korean country is on their border they will need to ensure limited traffic so people don't flee.

The key was containment the idea of not direct negotiation but with others, namely Russia, China, Japan, the two Korea's and the United States.

Blustering has led us to the point Kim wants: direct talks.

Ok now what.

Tell him to lose the nukes. Not going to happen.

Tell him stop. Nope, he's getting the attention he wants.

Threaten war. Look at the Korean conflict from the 1940's and even MacArthur won't propose dropping nuclear bombs especially now.

Regime change. Good luck if you think any border country will allow that. Like, China.

Sanctions work. They take time. They require patience. They require diplomacy and allies who we don't piss off with silly tweets and others who can help us even if we don't see eye to eye on everything.

Ironically, since Kim is not going, maybe we need a better Commander in Chief and Diplomat who can guide us so peace can be obtained without fire and fury, or biblical brimstone hailed down by our weapons or a hot war destruction of a peninsula killing both sides in a senseless conflict that when the clouds dissipate will leave us literally and figuratively in a worse fallout and by the work of our own hand.

Just IMHO.

Wonderful articlr

Thanks for posting, and those who posted explaining their condition. I too suffer from depression as well as borderline personality disorder. There are moments when I self harm also, like less than a week ago because I'm adjusting to new meds.

Hugs to all who suffer and kudos for surviving each and every day.

I would care IF....

you thought about health care and expanding it, or wished to increase taxes on the wealthy and corporations, or if you understood the plight of the innocent spent in our prison system,

But since you don't care about those things, I guess. I don't care about your dilemma. But I will cite the old adage of sleep with dogs and wake up with fleas. Or need for lawyers to reduce your prison sentence.


Utterly disgusting. The tweet, the misogynistic attitude and the man.

I am so ashamed of this person in the Oval office.

My thought too...

I can imagine people asking hey where's the McDonald's around here?

Have these idiots no shame?

Decency, morality, good sense, all are absent in their minds and hearts.

I wonder if they even send Mother's Day cards to their mothers or if they feel they bore the brunt of the labor used to expel them from the womb.

Good for you, sir.

Let's keep people willing to serve their country in service, and those who collude with Russia out of our service.

Radical thinking maybe. Oh, and Godspeed to you Mr. Muehler. Christmas is coming and I have a very big wish I would like to see.

Ivanka and Donald in an orange jumpsuit.

Wow and what is sadder

He is not getting better at golf. Geez. If you are not going to work should not your hobbies be getting better at least?

Oh well.

Rest in Peace....

Oh my even movies like Escape from New York, Godfather 2, Kelly's Heros, Cool Hand Luke, and I'm not even thinking hard....wow, one of my favorite character actors along with J Walsh..

I will miss you Harry..


I didn't. The comment was Mann Coulter, not Ann. Cisgender is a term which identifies people and if you read my reply we all could do with empathizing with others. I'm African American does this make me any less American? Maybe not to you but there are others who feel like that. And in the same way as transgender people

It was not my intention to offend you. If I have I'm sorry. I was only stating that calling a person what they are not can be insulting to the group they are being compared to especially if it is unjustified.
