He's the reason NK is ready to talk.

And besides, you and the rest of you leftwing nutjobs put a man in the oval office who allowed them to become nuclear armed in the first place.

Tell me nutjob, if Hillary had won, what do you think she'd be doing about this right now?

You remember Hillary, right? The woman who couldn't successfully pay off a dozen of her husband's rape victims?

Whataboutism, your side has made it your mantra. It's all ya got! 2018 is coming, and the door is going to be shown to so many wearing the red coats.

No, it's not "all we got". The ones who don't have anything any more are the democrats.

You actually don't give a sh!t about the country, do you - all you care about is your political party.

That's why your party is dying.

The Left hasn't had anything to offer in 30 years. Now that they are taking a hard turn toward Marxism, they should now be viewed as a terrorist organization and banned from the public square.

I agree, but we don't know yet whether the meeting will accomplish anything.
We can be pretty sure that the meeting will cause cnn to say that Mr. Trump totally botched the meeting.

I agree. It is good that there is a meeting. For realistic, most of these types of meetings are so pre planned to make sure that nothing can go wrong (and often nothing gets accomplished. If it does, it was pre planned and decided before times.).

In a meeting like this, I believe that it is very important to stay on the "script", at least for the first meeting. If this opens things up for more talks, it is great. But, President Trump cannot start saying things in the meetings that could cause harm later.

I remember one thing I learned in a class I took on meetings/negotiations/diplomacy - always try and move the communication up one level.

If you can send a letter, try to send an email or text
If you can send an email/text, try to telephone and talk
If you can talk on telephone, try to meet in person.

For a couple of years, I went into a different line of work. I was definitely not the brightest crayon in the box, but I did ok.

Two things I did, that I think helped... I rarely sent an email or text to a client without at least offering to telephone. And I rarely telephoned, when I could meet them in person. Even millennials appreciate a human touch.

The internet has caused a large number of retailers to file for bankruptcy.

I guess we can blame Al Gore.

Amazon put so many brick-and-mortar bookstores out of business.

Today's post had a story about how Amazon is building a brick-and-mortar bookstore downtown.
