GORDONVILLE — As a stay-at-home dad, I find myself doing a lot of stay-at-home dad stuff.
Among them is signing up on some online or the other on what to bring to parties.
I like to pounce on the plates-napkins-cups thing.
That means someone else will have to get the hats and balloons. And someone else will have get the drinks, while another will need to do drinks.
What is the occasion this time?
No last day of school. No birthday party for little Jenny or Jimmy.
Our so-called president has declared that North Korea is no longer a nuclear threat. Sounds worthy of a celebration, but the devil is in the details – or lack thereof.
From a Tweet (of course): “Just landed – a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea.”
There was also no reason to capitalize Nuclear Threat, but I digress.
This pronouncement comes after a quickie meeting with North Korean dictator (that’s what he is, so let’s not crap around) Kim Jong Un.
This quickie included – or failed to include – what CNN.com termed “no verifiable proof that the rogue regime will discontinue its nuclear program.”
You know, since centuries of history haven’t already taught us that those cut from the same cloth as the North Korean dictator (do we call him “Kim” or “Un,” you know, now that we are such good buds?) used agreements like the one agreed to this week as extra toilet paper for his palace as he gorges himself while his people starve, we will just take on faith that this time will be different.
After all, President John Barron (or is it Baron, depending on the spelling challenge it poses?) has decreed it to be so.
And when President John Miller, says it is so, it is so.
Don’t dare question President David Dennison.
Don’t question what we got out of this one-way deal.
Don’t question if human rights conditions will change in North Korea.
Don’t question why the Iran nuclear deal needs to be run through the shredder – you know, since everything Barack Obama as president did must be undone or else those bone spurs of yore will return — but we can sleep easy now that an unstable 34-year-old whose only qualification to ascend to ascend to the throne.
Don’t question how apoplectic the right would be right now if President Blackenstein did this on a five-hour junket to a resort.
And we need to not worry about that whole golden shower thing in his beloved Russia.
The 34-year-old despot from the “hermit kingdom” that he once called “short and fat” in a backhanded Twitter slap just gave him a golden shower in the town square.
We all like to equate the world leader thing to a schoolyard, with bullies and jocks and bookworms, etc.
We all know our so-called president is the bully. What is KJU? Since we could squash him like a bug in 12 ½ seconds in a war, he’s not the bully he portends to be.
He is the unstable kid – the one everyone is afraid to associate with – with the arsenal of firearms at home.
What happened at the Singaporean resort island of Santosa was nothing more than the bully getting an assurance from the unstable kid that he won’t gun him down should he go on a shooting spree.
Stray bullets, be damned.
We got nothing real from this deal. Not even a released political prisoner to be named later.
Do you “feel much safer now” with opening ourselves up to the same type of parasitic worm – not unlike those that ravage the insides of North Koreans – that will linger after this agreement is inevitably broken in the tradition of Hitler and Stalin?
I know I don’t.
Bring your own napkins and other paper products. I’m sitting this party out.
