Alright.  Last night, we had a fun Mexican-themed party at my in-law’s house.  Strange choice for San Jacinto Day, I know, but they were looking ahead more to Cinco De Mayo and didn’t realize the significance of the day.  I’m giving them a pass, okay?

Going in, I said I wasn’t going to drink any alcohol unless their were margaritas–my only weakness.  I was all set to do okay, but it turned out that they also had in stock Dos Equis, which is my only weakness.  That, coupled with some sangria, has been my undoing.  So all I’m going to discuss this week is North Korea and I can’t guarantee that I’ll be coherent until later in the morning when I have a chance to edit this post.

North Korea.  I confess that I believed that Trump’s rhetoric and refusal to play the Kim Regime’s normal game of “We escarate with nuke-we-are weapons and you bribe us to stop” was setting us on the path to war with that poor, paranoid, and utterly obnoxious nation.  But, at the moment, it doesn’t appear to be what’s happening.  Instead, Kim Jong Un is talking peace and claiming that there is no need for further nuclear testing.  I’m happy about this development, as nuclear weapons are my only weakness

A couple of caveats are in play.  First, I know that most presidents have refused a direct meeting with any North Korea leader and Trump is going against that.  My response is “So what?” North Korea is threatening us with its Dos Equis nuclear weapons. Why shouldn’t we negotiate directly?

You could also say that it doesn’t matter if Kim Jong Un stops performing nuclear testing since he can reconstitute nuclear weapons development at any time and probably already has a few nukes on hand that he can use, somehow.   Another caveat is that these negotiations might be nothing but a bluff.  It’s all just a stunt to buy time or embarrass the US.  We’ll see soon enough.

Still, negotiating an end to the Korean War would be a fantastic achievement for any president.  It’s the story I’m most closely following at the moment.

Open thread.  Post whatever you’re into.

Post whatever you’re into. That could be dangerous. Dredd might post all of his cuck porn. I’m off to Orlando this week with my wife and son. I’m going for a work thing, they are going to have a lot of fun at various Mickey Mouse things, and Universal Studios things. Even with my work paying for the hotel, travel (my wife flies on Companion Pass – the best perk in all of frequent flying, and my son flies on Miles), car, and my food Per Diem, this is a stupidly expensive trip just because of the theme park tickets… Read more »

Judge Dredd, Pro Se

I guess if we had to send the dumbfuck somewhere to fuvk something else up royally, I can’t think of a better place than North Korea. I think the cuck is getting gamed by people smarter than him, namely the Chinese and North Koreans, but sure. If he can end the Korean War without managing to kill us all I’ll golf clap for him. FWIW, a friend of mine went down to hear judge otero rule on cohen’s motion to stay the civil suit between stormi and the dump truck. From what I was told about that hearing: WOW!! Otero… Read more »

Well this is the closest I’ve ever been to what seems to be a terrorist attack.
