What is really going on in N. Korea? Why is Un so pliant now?

I don't, for a minute, credit 45 with pushing the two countries together. N Korean dictators don't work that way. Something else is going on in N Korea.

These overtures make me suspicious there is something seriously wrong/bad going on in his nuke program. I wouldn't be surprised to find that the majority of his scientists were in a radiation accident or something similarly bad that makes continuing the program almost impossible. The test facility collapsing must have caused a lot of damage we do not yet fully know about.

This is why religion makes me angry and sad.

We have the religious tied up with our government trying to force this country into a mini-theocracy:

The Other Reason Trump Hasn’t Fired Scott Pruitt: His Evangelical Christian Ties
Rebekah Mercer, the billionaire GOP megadonor and financier of anti-abortion groups, Christian colleges and climate change denial think tanks, bankrolled the confab, according to the brochure.

Brent Bozell, founder of the right-wing Media Research Center, opened the program as the master of ceremonies before Pruitt gave his roughly four-minute speech in acceptance of an award for “human dignity leadership.” The Rev. Thomas Joseph White, a professor at the Catholic Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception, followed him with an invocation.

If these people could just stop believing in fairy tales and start just loving their fellow humans things would be so much better. But, no, their religion is just a tribal identifier and causes the "us vs. them" mentality they further by promoting their version of reality over everyone else's.

One of my HS Classmates is the mother of DeEbony Groves. I'm so very sad. Waffle House victim.

I'm from a small town near Nashville. DeEbony Groves is the daughter of someone I went to high school with.

The shooting is much more personal now.

The AUMF Must Be Repealed!!! Otherwise, 45 and Bolton are going to use it.

The congress must act to repeal the AUMF. This will be the law that Bolton and 45 use to justify the new wars they are about to start.

We seriously have to get our congress critters to repeal or limit this.

Anyone else see the irony in Easter on April Fools day?

Just giggling a little to myself. Thought this might be the only place I could share that laugh.
