Other than removing the stranglehold of sanctions that have crippled his economy and the opportunity to become a member of a prosperous global economy.


He all of a sudden cares? 

Prolix Raconteur --- 127 days ago -

I believe so. As much as he's kept his population in the dark, more and more North Koreans are becoming aware of the outside world and long for the life of a modern society. Couple that with sanctions that have literally caused his kingdom to starve and he risks a revolution. If he plays it right, he can enter the 21st century and his people will praise him for making North Korea a part of the global community. He's paranoid like his father and grandfather, but he's western educated and has China backing him as he emerges from isolation.

You seem to be bent on telling people to shut up when they call you out.

You're an admitted doper, what makes you so special?


Shut up Dr. Quack
Take your snake oil medicine show somewhere else.

Other than removing the stranglehold of sanctions that have crippled his economy and the opportunity to become a member of a prosperous global economy.

I believe all that will be attainable with the illusion of destroying test facilities and delivery vehicle research. I'm betting the nuclear inventory will still be viable and may even increase while sanctions are withdrawn.

China is the key player, not the US.

It's Mr. Quack to you, and since when have you had a corner on this messaging board regarding who can say what and whenever they want.

Ok, Im letting you off the hook. Im just yankin your chain. However you can take your "mind altering" bla bla bla back to the BS section at Walmart where you found it. Save your Dr. Quack nonsense for the gullible. The topic is "Why do regular people vote republican. Try to keep up 

Saturn --- 127 days ago -

Thank you, thank you ... I feel much better now that you've let me off the hook.

Given your 67 posts of ridiculing those who vote Republican on this thread, maybe you should stay on topic.

But then again, in the words of Jack Nicholas, you can't handle the truth.

Why do regular people vote republican
As it pertains to the last election, I think the more important question may be, "Why did the Democratic party leave its base for the cries of the far left and when will they get back to their base?"

If you can explain to me why my 70+ year old midwest blue collar union father who has voted straight ticket Dem since Kennedy voted for Trump, you'll be on your way to the answer. My dad could be the poster child for blue dog democrat and feels completely abandoned by his party. You can't call him a racist voter, he voted for Obama twice. You can't call him a misogynistic voter, he voted for Jennifer Granholm twice as well.

You're asking why regular people vote republican...maybe you should ask why the Dems can't seem to field a candidate worth their vote.

Just my 2 cents. Your mileage may vary. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 127 days ago -

Very interesting and articulate comment, Combatkenpo.

I heard a life long Democratic say on Talk radio today that the left's hate of Trump and the constant berating him in the press is causing many of them to actually feel sympathy for Trump. I can identify with that after reading Marks comments everyday, on every thread, repeat and repeat.

I didn't vote for him. I personally don't like the way he treats people, but it appears he's getting some things done. Unemployment is at a 47 year low. This deal with Kim is a good thing-don't know how it will pan out, but it's a step in the right direction. Many people got a big bonus due to tax relief for businesses.

I want good things for our country, and I'm not so small I can't admit a good thing is a good thing even if I didn't vote for him. But if you read through this thread, you'll see a lot of hate, rudeness and lock step robotic spewing that is anything but impartial. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 127 days ago -

Two threads well said! The only thing I'd add is, why did both parties move to extreme positions? The country continues to pay for it. 

roer de pot --- 126 days ago -

Regular people don't.

Small, bigoted, ignorant, trashy, weak, hateful people do.

You're asking why regular people vote republican...maybe you should ask why the Dems can't seem to field a candidate worth their vote.

Except Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, so the people clearly wanted her over trump, despite her not being a strong choice. She's a Republican lite - we need progressive, articulate, worldly, experienced politicians - not dynasties or reality TV performers. 

combatkenpo --- 126 days ago -

why did both parties move to extreme positions?

IKR? You'd hope that maybe both sides will learn a lesson in all of this. Due to their infighting and lack of leadership at the national level, the Pub's Presidential nomination was basically hijacked by a pragmatist with an arguably moderate Democrat view.

The Tea Party faction of the right is still wondering how it happened and the Progressive/Resistance on the left has just simply lost their minds. Meanwhile, predominantly purple (meaning that you can be both pro-choice, pro-GLBT AND a fiscal conservative wanting secure borders if that's your thing) America just wants to get up in the morning and go knock out a job that will allow them to give their children a leg up and maybe put a little away for retirement. There's absolutely no requirement to subscribe to the identity politics that both major parties are pushing today.

I'd encourage anyone with even a bit of curiosity to search the web for the "dark web of intellectuals". We're living in a time when hardcore liberals like Sam Harris are sitting down with hardcore conservatives like Ben Shapiro in order to discuss real topics without all of the polarizing hyperbole.

So. Much. Irony. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 126 days ago -

LOL 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 126 days ago -

Actually, IMO, you both make great points.

Only a trumpflake would prefer to be called Mr than Dr 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 126 days ago -

"Trumpflake"

Ya, that's the real problem with those two posters and those comments? LOL.
Saturn is not rude, disrespectful, or a know it all whose wrong constantly. Be it far from some of you to actually judge people on their comments and behavior on here vs. political persuasion.
SMH.



But, the good news is, there's actually mature convo happening right now! 

WatchOut --- 126 days ago -

Mama has arrived to deliver her ritual spanking. This is the micromanaging I referred to elsewhere. 

fuzz81 --- 126 days ago -

a know it all whose wrong constantly

Lmfao. That?s rich from you. 

jackass --- 126 days ago -

Trumpflake


Yeah, that?s what we call them...you don?t jump to the defense of libtards. 

WatchOut --- 126 days ago -

Ain't it.

BTW Sigh it's "who's" not whose. I can micromanage too. 

WatchOut --- 126 days ago -

Eewwww, spanked again with the REAL NEWS AKA THE TRUTH.

You should be using your non mod account when showing political bias.

Sorely needed. The us against them mentality is just ruining everything. But it's hard to believe our society will recognize that open communication with RESPECT is common sense for working through things and negotiationing. Yet when it comes to politics, feathers get ruffled in a blink of an eye.

It's too bad we can't just do away with a two party system and the head butting stalemate that we have now. In a perfect political world, it would not be Dems Vs. Pubs, it would be issue by issue, person by person consideration, with no one even considering voting a straight party ticket bc getting power for their "side" is how we win the game. Instead looking to policy and persons who can get things done. In a perfect world....

LOL that's Mark's comment. He's the antithesis of a "trumpflake". 

fuzz81 --- 126 days ago -

Use more caps SSFG. MORE CAPS

LOL that's Mark's comm


No, Saturn wanted to be called Mr instead of Dr. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 126 days ago -

You boys need a nap! It's early too! Zzzzzzz

SoupIsGoodFood --- 64 days ago -

Does he ever think before posting these ignorant memes? 

OrdinaryGuy --- 64 days ago -

He is so blinded by his hatred of the President that he doesn't really have a clue as to what is going on anymore. He really doesn't think for himself he just parrots what he hears on CNN. 

OrdinaryGuy --- 64 days ago -

BTW....markster. I get Social Security and they haven't cut mine. So I wonder where you got your info. In fact this year, I got a raise.
