I can't even...

After Hitler, Nazis, WW II, and the Holocaust, how in the HELL could any American be silent, complacent, or apologist about white supremacists, white nationalists, and/or Nazis? I don't get it at all. It's the ultimate WTF? moment for me.

Interesting to note...

Interesting how some people who virulently oppose abortion and claim to be pro-life seem to be okay with obliterating North Korea with a nuclear bomb. I wonder if they're only part-time pro-lifers or something. Because deploying a nuclear weapon doesn't seem very pro-life to me. Some of these same people will sit in church pews every week and present themselves as being pious and a follower of Jesus. What a steaming pile of hypocrisy!

The solution is NOT a nuclear bomb

You know what a president who is performing badly, has low approval ratings, and is under investigation for colluding with a hostile foreign power does? He starts wars instead of de-escalating.

The people of Guam (including military members and their families) and the people of North Korea don't deserve to die from a nuclear bomb. The people of North Korea do not deserve to be wiped out. They are at the mercy of their psychopathic leader, much as we are with the narcissistic psychopath sitting in our own White House.

If you're the, "Yeah, let's bomb the shit out of them!" type, stop and think clearly. Employ rationality, because people's lives depend on it. We are talking nuclear weapons. NUCLEAR WEAPONS. Reacting with your war-mongering, reptilian brain is part of the problem, not the solution. Realize the devastating human and environmental cost this escalation between 45 and Kim Jong-Un would bring. This is real life, not a Rambo movie.

There are other solutions besides nuclear weapons. There always are. We are higher-thinking primates. Let's damn sure act like it.

Once that world-altering step is taken from either side, there is no coming back from the nightmare that will have been unleashed.

I have a 2 1/2-month-old grandson who is precious and who is the light of my life. Somewhere, in Guam and North Korea, there are other babies just starting their lives. There are people, like you and me, who don't want this. They want to live their lives and they're held hostage by this race to madness.
