Our leaders today have no concept of priorities when it comes to the governance of a nation. The very reason government of any sort exists is to protect its citizens.
Anyway, while North Korea was busy testing Nukes, our House Speaker was in China determining how to best handle the nuclear powered dictatorship. Just kidding, she was there on the much more important business of managing the climate.
Meanwhile, the Presidents top policy is deciding what kind of cars US citizens should be permitted to buy. Don't worry though, he did "condemn" the tests - that will show them since North Korea is so concerned about what we think of him.
