What's the first step in changing anything? Establishing a dialogue. Decades of politicians burying their heads in the sand and just talking about it, is what allowed the current situation in N Korea to get to where it is today. I "hope" things work out for the best over there. Am I optimistic? No, I am reserved, waiting to see how it unfolds. One thing I will give Trump, is that he is trying to change things over there for the better. That's something no other president has done. If Kim denuclearizes the Korean peninsula, those who hate Trump will still **** about it and find something else to complain about.

What's annoying?

People who post anonymously and expect to be taken seriously when it is a general question.

"Kim is blah, blah, blah..."

So? Are you suggesting that because of the things he is and has done we shouldn't try to effect change? I didn't peg you as one enamored of the status quo.

"We elected someone to turn the corrupt US government around."

Yup. Did you expect he could reverse 240 years of exponentially increasing and cumulative corruption in a year and a half?

Whether he's actually trying or not is debatable, but only time and results will tell. In the meantime, we aren't privy to all that he is or to his reasoning for everything he does.

"Instead he breaks bread with Kim."

And your preference is the status quo or military action? Or perhaps you prefer the nuclear option?

"Trump taking lessons, so he too can be 'revered'."

Trump is many things, but he's not stupid. He knows that while he may have some passionate supporters, very few Americans "revere" him, and even fewer foreigners.

"All government is corrupt."

Yup. Hate to break it to you, but most people want a government of some size and sort. Everyone is simply not about to rise up in anarchy. And even if they did, new governments would arise...and become corrupt...and compete for dominance...i.e. we would end up right back where we started.

Just a little reminder,  in case anyone needs one.

I can neither play the video nor find it either at the source (whose videos I cannot play either) or on YouTube. So I cannot respond specifically to what is on it.

In general...

News personalities and people online slam presidents of the party with the opposing party/bias as theirs, but give "their" president a pass or applaud him, thus displaying their hypocrisy?

Shocker. (yawn)

I've met plenty on the internet, but I've been lucky in real life. I've met plenty of jerks, but that I'm aware, nothing that extreme.

The internet make it easier for people to put the ugly out there, so it doesn't surprise me how easy it is to encounter one here.

Why do you think a website would let abandoned accounts linger for years and years? Should a website close/delete an account if there has been no activity in over a year?

They could, I mean, it would free up space on their servers. I work at a library and if someone doesn’t use their account in 5 years, we delete their account from the system.

At the same time, there have been a few examples of older users unexpectedly returning, and I don’t mind that old posts and questions are still here. But if a site wants to clear up space, they can do what they want.

Yep, North Korea has been a rat hole for over 50 years now.
Bad place, rotten leadership.
And doing what previous presidents have done for that time have only made things worse and worse. Those bitching today are the same ones that were bitching about how Trump was going to start a nuclear war wit Lil Rocket Man. Now, they're talking about taking all his nuclear shit away from him.

Explain to me please how this isn't just sour grapes from the left.

True no weapons have been removed as yet. And maybe Lil Rocket Man is just a slippery as his old man and grandfather. If so, we'll deal with it then. Until then, I see the meeting as historic, a great move forward. The fact that it took a non-politician to make it happen is equally interesting to me.

Stubbornness is just as deadly to a relationship as cheating, lying, selfishness, or money. It's a dagger all it's own that says "who needs you"?

Stubbornness is difficult to deal with, from both sides, actually...said the stubborn woman. But I learned that with my husband and I, when one of us was being really stubborn, there were three options that worked for us:

1. Decide whether it's really worth it. If not, give it up.

2. Do something super nice...it'll usually shock their heels right outta the ground.

3. Do something wildly outrageous...with us it was both a wake-up to how ridiculous being stubborn was in the situation and a way for us to laugh about whatever the issue was.

What did you wear as a teenager?

We were only allowed to wear skirts and dresses at school, and they had to touch the floor when standing on our knees. (We rolled up our skirts until we heard the clatter of keys hanging from the belt of the girls' vice principal.) We wore jeans, pedal pushers, and shorts on the weekends.
