I like the old saying that even a broken clock is right twice a day. Of course, that only applies only to analog clocks as the digital ones just go blank. What brought this thought is some of the actions around #CO3 recently. I certainly enjoy making fun of some of his daily screw-ups but in the same light, I have to also give him credit for good things that may happen because of his occupancy. Let’s get on to that in this post.
If it is true, and I am VERY skeptical about it, #CO3 should get some credit for the possible reunification of Korea. It took a person who is even more unstable than the North Korean leader to scare him into a reconciliation that has been waiting seventy years to happen. It looks like Kim Jong Un blinked. If it happens I hope that we can finally get all our soldiers and war machines out of Korea and let them take care of their own business from then on. Maybe it will even cause a trend to remove them from other parts of the world? Wouldn’t it be GREAT if we could pare down our military spend to something comparable to the rest of the world? Right now we, 5% of the world population, spend more than the rest of the world combined on our war machine. All that money could be used to provide universal healthcare for our citizens and even a better safety net for those who fall on hard times.
Thanks #CO3 for outcrazing the craziest in the world. Your skills are good for something after all. 🙂
