    How much actual aviation experience do you have as a PIC? Just curious. If you have your private license, that is enough for me to grant you aviation experience.
    I did not say they were bought by the pound.

    I claim no experience. Just consider me a lowly, unknowing janitor.

    When President Obama said he was WILLING to meet with Kim Jong Un, the Republicans came close to accusing him of treason. They DID accuse him of being naïve and gullible and stupid and weak for even thinking about meeting with the leader of the world's most ruthless totalitarian regime, one that still has vast prison camps where people are killed every day, a regime that has starved large numbers of its people. But when Trump agreed to a summit, you Trump groupies called it a stroke of genius. Then when he called it off, you called THAT a stroke of genius. Then when he said it was back on, you called THAT a stroke of genius. And now, when he has walked away from it with apparently not really much to show for it other than a vague promise to keep talking about 'denuclearization', you think Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Alice in Wonderland stuff here.

    Recognizing Castro and having an embassy in Cuba would still be a good thing, especially for the people of Cuba. Having diplomatic relations with North Korea would also be a good thing for the people of that unfortunate country and for the United States as well.

    If a fraud and a brutal dictator can actually hammer out peace and de nuclearize the Korean Peninsula, then kudos to them. They've done a great job despite what they've done in the past. So far, all we know about the summit is what Trump has told us. I, for one, would like to believe him, but he's told so many whoppers in the past I'm not holding out a lot of hope.

    It's so telling to see the leftists rooting for de-nuclearization and deescalation to fail. It's as if they would nearly want anything negative, as long as it hurts Trump. Who cares about the people and money saved.

    I have been a long advocate of pulling our troops from all over the world and having them at home training (at our border).

    This is absolutely a part of the negotiation that should be used and it best for both countries and the world.

    Suspend isn't an absolute stopping and american troops on the DMZ are just a trip wire. Getting out of this 50 year old mess is in our interest.

    Part of what negotiation? In exchange for standing down and fucking our allies, we got......what?

    In my wise and correct opinion, Trump made Kim more powerful on a global scale, a man who made the president of the US give up things, in exchange for rhetoric.

    I guess we need troops all along our border with Canada now, too, since Trump has pretty much declared them to be our Enemy.

    We already know how he feels about those raping Mexicans!!
