North Korea, by the Numbers: Kim Jong un Is Worth How Much?!

Flickr source

The top-secret nation of North Korea has been making headlines lately, as Pyongyang threatened to target the U.S. and North Korea’s neighbors in the South. These types of threats are nothing new, as the world’s most secluded country is known for its hatred of all things American. Anti-America sentiments are strong and still very much a part of North Korean propaganda.

The U.S. has a longstanding political relationship with South Korea and will intervene if necessary. Recently, in response to the threats, the U.S. launched a series of stealth fighters and nuclear-capable B-52 bombers over South Korea.

The Kim Dynasty in the lap of luxury while North Korea starves

Kim Jong-un, who succeeded his late father Kim Jong-il in 2011, now reigns over the Hermit Kingdom as Supreme Leader, and indulges in the same lavish lifestyle as his dad. Jong-un continues to build private resorts and make lux purchases, despite the fact that his starving North Korean citizens were reportedly resorting to cannibalism, as food is scarce. The god-like leader spends extravagantly on things like expensive imported meals, booze and trips. Former NBA star Dennis Rodman raised many eyebrows after he made a trip to North Korea to hang with Jong-un. After the controversial trip, Rodman said he would not return North Korea.

As one of the most impoverished countries in the world, North Korea’s stagnant economy is virtually closed-off from the rest of the world. In the 1990s, millions of North Koreans died in a famine that devastated the country due to food shortages and its failed economy. The country reportedly has labor camps, in which prisoners are forced into hard labor, tortured and sometimes killed. Prison escapees have often shared the same horrific stories when it comes to these concentration camps.

However, Great Leader cares not, and continues to live a life of luxury while his people suffer. Read on to get a glimpse of Kim Jong-un’s shockingly excessive lifestyle.

    …even worse, now the peoples of every nation on the planet now despise us for being so stupid to elect a fool like George W. Bush or con artist, anti-christs such as Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove, Gingrich, Delay, Gramm, etc…

    Foreigners watch our idiot reality shows like Honey Boo Boo or Jersey Shores, then investigate our educational system and realize a growing number of Americans have become fat, lazy and very stupid. Stupid enough to send their money to false prophets like Pat Robertson or get stuck in adjustable or reverse mortgages. Stupid enough to keep voting for the same con artists over & over & over &.., like they’re all f***n insane… They don’t respect us anymore, do they? jinnbad.blogspot.com

    ENTER:
    Secret planning bunker for Kim Jong-Un. North Korea’s Presidential silver spoon wants to eat Big Macsin the Big Apple, **** American party girls and sleep in the White House. This cubby little mad man has plans to CHOP UP fat Americans and feed them to his people. Good night and good luck suckers!

      IDIOT liberals put in office a drug addicted racist hater who has spend 900 hours playing golf and vacationing while spending only 386 hours total on solving the economy and job problems. This generation in this nation are the worst pieces of garbage we have ever seen! BUSH was our saviour and that clown obama is excrement that flushes down everyones toilet everyday! Obama does nothing but continually campaign jumping from one state to another talking talking talking talking and doing absolutely NOTHING!! The most worthless piece of meat that ever lived other than the rest of the liberal garbage that lives in this country!!! Liberals demos are the scum of the earth. They destroy everything and everywhere they are. Just look at Europe what a mess it is and NOW our great nation is being completely corrupted and destroyed by a golf playing do nothing president. Send all our liberals to N. Korea and feed them to their people. This might save our country!

            Lamay…Obviously yours is even less. More obvious is that you apparently didn’t even possess the intelligence to create an intelligent rebuttal therefore all you did do was throw insults. To make matters even worse you insulted your own self because you are posting here as well.

        are you insane? bush spent more then half his presidency on vacation and could barely complete a sentence without saying something stupid. Obama is no better but lets be real here

        • crystlfire62

          Next to Obama and that idiot Biden, Bush is a complete scholar and a gentlemen. The other two are excrement we flush down the toilet daily!

          • agnar150

            Bush a savior he almost tanked this country. Did you not see the state of the economy when he left office? He let the banks steal the homes of low IQ Americans…LOL

          • buttwhatif

            well if we are over the bush mess in 50 years , ummm that would be great !

          • lee gary

            That was Clinton with his Affordable Housing Act and repeal of the glass-Steagall Act. Apparently you are another low information democrat.

          • Bob Jones Jr.

            Phil Grahm worked hand in hand with Bill. Let’s be fair.

          • D.j. Riddle

            So was Clinton the one who controlled the Republican filled House and Senate who shoved the repeal of Glass-Steagall down America’s throat? If America could get over the idea that it’s just the folks from one party or the other or just the left or right that is causing the problems then maybe we could get our collective poo together and start solving the real problems. Oh wait, we live in a nation where half the population is below average in intelligence and all of them have the right to vote, so…

          • MIKE

            It was all Clinton’s fault I mean if he didn’t spend most of his time catching bjs in the Oval Office then maybe he wouldn’t have left such a mess for bush to clean up. bush saved the American people best he could. And now Obama takes credit for everything bush did in his term. Bush cleaned up most of our economies problems and Obama stepped in put a bow on it. And took all the credit

            Could this be that Obama is just plainly not liked by his own people?

        • Tee

          Where are all these rednecks coming from.

      • Aaron Smith

        This is good stuff. Exactly how many hours of Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh do you listen to in a day? I would say you watch Fox News too, but while Fox News is really just a republican tool to misinform, lie, and incite fear in order to manipulate their viewers in order to control them (you know, really great Nazi Germany style propaganda tactics), but in reality, your comment is so absurd that its level of ignorance and stupidity is even too insane to have come from Fox News.

        I mean, first off, lets get the facts:

        Most presidential vacation days ever taken? That would be George W. Bush. You know, our last president? George W. Bush was on vacation for 1,020 days in his eight year term, or, 32% (one-third) of his time in office. That’s right. George Bush spent one-third of his presidency on vacation. And you are attacking Obama?

        Bush took over 500 days on vacation in his first term. Obama? He took 131 days of vacation in his first term. Seriously, do you see how out of touch you are with actual FACTS.

        Bush was our savior. We not only had to endure the worst attack against the US on its own soil under Bush, but he lowered taxes on the rich, thus lowering government revenue, with the justification being that lower taxes on the rich is good for job creation. Ahh, I am very confused then, how unemployment skyrocketed under Bush.

        When Bush came into office, the unemployment rate was 4.2%. When he left? It was 8.3%. What is it now under Obama despite continued republican attempts to block Obama from making any progress? 7.4%. Interesting.

        So, George Bush, our savior (??) takes 1/3 of his presidency on vacation, unemployment doubles, the gap between the rich and the poor continues to grow (which is the worst thing for a capitalist nation if you want to believe Adam Smith, the father of capitalism), and Bush took us to war with two different nations that cost this nation about 5.6 trillion under his term, and another 2.8 trillion on Obama’s. Bush, our savior!

        And the fact that your comment got thumbs up despite it being completely backwards and lacking any truth, and rather, being the exact opposite of the truth, should scare all the sane people in the US. These are the uninformed, ignorant, lying hillbilly republicans that just make stuff up, like saying Obama spent 900 hours playing golf and 386 hours on the economy and jobs. I mean, these numbers were completely pulled out of her a$$, yet look, 15 thumbs up. This is why we our nation is in trouble. Too many US citizens know nothing and spend no time educating themselves about the actual facts. They just turn on their favorite republican pundit and just listen to the lies they want to hear rather than actually become informed, and…its pitiful.

      Who is most prevalent in administering and teaching in the American educational system? What about the mainstream media? It’s easy to point out how stupid radical right-wingers are, but take a look in the mirror. Look really closely. Do you truly like what you see from the left? The constant pointing out of obvious problems, the insistence that others fix them immediately and without sparing any expense, and doling out “solutions” that are often counterproductive and worse than the problem they were intended to solve. Is North Korea far left or far right? Be careful what you wish for. Just because A is bad, it doesn’t mean B is good. They differ only slightly in their means to achieve the same end.

      One very simple truth I have learned in life: you just simply cannot argue facts,
      truths, or even the existence of unicorns with the liberal leaning brain. They
      refuse to listen, they ignore the facts if those facts refute their Ideology,
      and they will not keep themselves informed beyond what other liberals tell them
      what’s OK to think or do, and if a Conservative tries to educate them they will
      HATE them for it.

  • ivan

    Seriously SPO? 5 years after bush retired and 7 years after the Democrats siezed control of congress y’all are still blaming Bush for the worlds problems? It’s a knee-jerk reactionary response that only the blindest ideologues can’t see through. Here’s a news flash; America is LESS popular under Obama’s administration than it was under Bush.

    If you got your news from a more diverse and ethical source than the lockstep leftist entertainment/news industrial complex.

    Here’s another news flash: NO ONE who has ever met Bush and spent any real time in his presence will ever truthfully claim he’s a moron. The vast preponderance of people who are not politically beholden to Obama admit that he’s a narcissistic meglomaniac who will do anything to advance his agenda. Of course, that doesn’t fit the image that has been sold to the Left, so many folks just accept the spoon-fed drivel that composes the majority of their information.

    • Tee

      America is less popular but there are so many people all over the world still trying to come over here. Obama is not the best but way better than fucken Bush. This country is always going to be hated but will always be great. Don’t blame this on Obama. Blame this on whoever planted Snowden in the NSA to bring Obama headaches.

      • HWB

        Are we witnessing right now the most radically, extremely liberal, ideological president of our entire lifetime right here in the United States of America, or are we witnessing the most incompetent president of the United States of America in the history of our lifetimes? You know, it is a difficult question, “I’ve thought long and hard about it. Here’s the only answer I’ve come up with, and I’m going to quote Secretary Clinton: ‘What difference does it make?'”

        Hillary was asked for an opinion and replied “Who cares? Wet Willie and I are dead broke and don’t know where our next caviar and roast pheasant meal is coming from.”

        Ben Carson is everything Obama would like to be. After 8 years of the porch monkey, Carson would be a welcome relief in the White House.

        The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

        The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.

          Stupidity runs amok again…. after Bush’s debacle, dragging US economy down, unfunded and unnecessary war, it is only a miracle that we are were we are now. Any country with a lesser leader, and we too would have been a basket economy. Obama managed the TARP brilliantly, although, TARP was basically a hand out to big business. His healthcare effort, in spite of republican and tea party effort is working for millions…. if we were under a republican president, we would have continued the dreadful war, taxes would have lowered giving the 1% further wealth at the cost of our public schools, healthcare, infrastructure. The country needs to wake up to the self-destructive right wingers and boot them out of any and all office that impacts our lives.

          • HWB

            Talk about stupidity amok and forever.
            1. Obama was picked, trained, primped, pimped and ideologized by mentors and party leaders – to be used as a screw driver, an inanimate tool that has one purpose – get the democrat party their way in the US. It wasn’t because he was in any way presidential, fit for the job of actually governing. No, he keeps calling on numerous advisers to make his decisions. He comes attached with puppet strings and a teleprompter – to animate him. Been that way for a long time.

            2. Now that the glamour has worn off (the initial polish was just water soluble makeup), the campaign has been done and over for a long time. But he keeps campaigning for democrats who love the money but would rather not having him stumping for them – like having arm pits because you need them, but, they smell really foul now. I mean, you can’t rid yourself of arm pits. So, these dems just grit their teeth and take the campaign funds while he stays in perpetual campaign mode – for others.

            3. He’s been lame in many ways since he took office in the senate all the way to ‘now.’ Definitely a lame duck prez, with a pen and a phone mixed with every spewing lies and propaganda, that a larger majority of Americans have decided are “very obvious” lies. They (including many who voted for him) are NOT buying what he says now.

            4. The people who count in all this are in opposition to everything he says and does. He can sign more exec orders all he wants. That just makes the situation much worse. More complainers, more critics – fuel poured onto the opposition fires. Makes him feel good, thinks it props up his base, actually his supposed base for dems, the angry ones opposing him now, who will oppose the dem candidates running in the coming election.

            5. and … he’s surrounded by disgruntled incompetent people whose ideologies make them incompetent for US government, according to the US Constitution. He takes it on the chin when they give stupid advises he follows as the puppet strings tighten or they say dumb things (re Kerry).
            So, it’s easy to see, he does not have a fun job right now and it will get worse. Eventually, more dems will stop him from campaigning on their behalf. Closer to the election, they’ll get uncomfortable and say, “Please stop. Go away.” Obama’s favorite thing to do will be gone – campaigning.
            It’s going to get boring before the election and way more boring just after. Like a teenager who bored to no end, he’ll sign and phone more, stirring up more trouble until the dem party feel the pain of public opposition galore.
            That comfort zone will dissapear leaving him significantly unfulfilled, more depressed, angry – a severe case of mental illness. Heads will roll – the American public should brace themselves for 2 years of h-e-double-hockey-sticks. A muslim-borne hell of mayhem, danger, and foolishness like never before. A recipe for American disaster unlike any seen in movies! We will need to relieve him of this job and its office one way or the other or vanish as a unified nation.

            6. “When they increases taxes on the rich, most of the rich are able to simply increase their income to offset the higher taxes, thus passing those higher taxes off to the poor and middle class through stagnant wages.” This is exactly right! And it goes farther to their suppliers, all the way down the chain. If you know any of them, they will tell you: They have no choice but to work for the survival of themselves and their own families. And they hate to see the suffering of those they lay off, cut, squeeze. All others on the economic rungs below will suffer. Meanwhile, the unthinking/unknowing who vote for people like Obama, never get it. They just keep suffering and voting for more of it. Absolutely amazing!!!

            Yes Obama, corporate America is doing okay, however it is not because of his policies, but ‘in spite’ of them!

          • HelloKitty

            Let me disabuse you of the many rubbish ideas you have said

            1. “Obama was picked, trained.. blah blah”, absolute hogwash. Democratic party was in the pocket of Hillary. I think you have completely forgotten the democratic primary battle. Hillary would have won, except Obama election machine used modern tools to reach younger crowd, and also, his strategy on delegates tipped him over Hillary. Do you know Hillary got MORE VOTES than Obama in the primary, but lost on delegates…. so there goes your
            rabid, lunatic theory that Obama was pushed by party leaders etc. etc.

            2. So Obama is unpopular, yet he can campaign and get money….That’s ridiculous. He is unpopular in mainly repub and rural hillibillie areas, many in the south. And who cares for those. Wyoming is the state that most dislikes Obama. Figures, that is where Cheney is from. And those white hillbillies off-course would hate black Obama, but who cares. West Virginia, Utah, South Dakota, Idaho, Oklahoma are state where Obama is wildly unpopular. BUT he is
            popular in the productive states, California, Washington, New York, Massachusetts etc. That’s the REAL America – productive multicultural, progressive. That is the America that produces wealth which then goes to the moocher states who take in more than they return via taxes. In terms
            of religion, it is mainly the WASP thumpers who oppose Obama, perhaps because of his parentage, though Obama himself grew up Christian.

            3. As for his lame duck presidency, look at the repub
            congress? If they don’t pass bills, then bills don’t become law, and this congress is the WORST congress we ever had. Republicans have gerrymandered districts filled with racists who do not mind opposing the black guy at any
            cost. Look at what they did this term – sue the president? Sue…. if he is so bad, then try and impeach him, and get balls kicked forever, but suing the president is the ONLY bill they passed. All other bills including immigration is designed to fail in Senate. And look at your Crazy Cruz senator, causing enormous economic damage for suggesting that US default on payments. You know
            what that would do to the dollar, would make it worth less than a toilet paper. But that’s what the republicans want under Obama. Repubs that make up majority
            of the party want to destroy America so that they can have their 2-bit satisfaction of seeing Obama’s name besmirched, as the default would happen under Obama’s term. Look at ACA, an idea first implemented by Romney and created in
            large part by Heritage foundation – a CONSERVATIVE think tank. Because Obama created it, the whole gamut of racist repubs are now against it.

            4. Obama is absolutely right in using his executive orders, it is a pity he is not using it for more actions, on immigration, on our infrastructure and the environment – he used
            one to create a safe area in the seas around Hawaii, to preserve marine habitat. He is working against a DO NOTHING congress, who does not want to see any kind of success under Obama.

            5. When did Kerry and other advisers that Obama has become stupid. Kerry has been in the senate since 1984.
            He is a decorated vet, winning medals – not like Bush and Cheney who used influence not to serve in the front. And all his other advisors are very well read with vast experience. His cabinet members are folks like Kerry, Hillary,
            Chuck Hagel are all fairly respected in their field, due to experience and ability.

            6. And as for your economic idea that if we give the rich more money so that they would stop squeezing the
            rest is complete bull. Studies after studies have proved otherwise that trickle-down economics do not work. In the 60s, when there were strong union, a person working as a machinist in FORD plant could afford a middle class life,
            and send kids to school. Now, as workers’ rights have gone down, unions have lost power – the RIGHT TO WORK rules etc – workers are working more, at lower cost. And rich are parking their money overseas. And lack of education has
            resulted in high-paying jobs going overseas where there are more qualified folks available. The repubs have eaten away at Americas greatness, by depriving Americans of quality education and decent salaries. More than 50% of MS and PhD students today are from overseas, because our schooling is so broken that we don’t produce college ready kids. All we are producing is hamburger tossers and
            retail workers. And repubs are proud of these chievements, as they continue to underfund education. All the repubs want is to spend upward of 39% of federal budget on Defence and defence related so that they can fight their dirty wars everywhere. Obama is absolutely right in getting us out of Iraq, in order to preserve our economy, and rebuild our military that Bushes wars had depleted.
            The next president is going to be another democrat anyway, and the repubs better learn to work on creating value for America. If they continue to behave the way they are, the repub party would be kicked under the carpet so quick, no one would ever remember that they were anything of significance in America ever. The KKK met its end in the dust, and if the repub party does not change soon, that’s where it will end up too.

            to quote George Carlin- BS! BS! BS! another pile of BS!. Obama IS a muslim. His attendance of these alleged christian schools are a cover up. His family was muslim. Right to work means, you don’t have to join a union and give your money to the Mafia bosses. As for the rich parking their money overseas-blame your liberals for the high tax rates! And have you noticed the skyrocketing energy costs and insurance costs? All Obama! And now he has gone from global warming to climate change. Yes, the climate changes-that is called Seasons! But, liberals do not let facts get in the way of their agenda. For it is all rose colored glasses and teleprompters for them

          • alaskanexile

            we don’t have high tax rates, at least for the wealthy: they are at record lows. Guys like u are on here to do one thing: keep Americans divided by political party and race instead of by class and wage. The real fight is against the elites, you are their stooge or lackey, And George Carlin, an affirmed leftist, would probably rather see you hang than have you quote him

          • HelloKitty

            Right to work does not mean you pay for unions only, it also implies collective bargaining. Collective bargaining was the biggest achievement of labor movement, that helped drag many working poors into middle class/ lower-middle class existence. And that too, in US, all the steel workers, auto workers etc. in the 70s and 80s, who helped propel America as the greatest nation.
            As for Obama being a muslim, you seem to be acting more like the Mullahs of Islam who declare fatwas and declare what people can and cannot do, who is or is not a muslim. Are you sure, given your tendencies for fatwas, you are in the right religion. I think you are more of a muslim type than Obama.

          • gghhbb

            So what if he is a Muslim. Are u that dumb to think that all Muslims are terrorist? It is sad that u think electing Christian leaders should always work. Problem is gop members are too dumb to see that Bush put us in the dark ages yet the GOP thinks the mess they created should be over in two terms.

          • fghggg

            Look at gas prices now. Bush as a president had the highest gas prices in history. Yet u look at gas prices when Obama got in. You dont remember that one summer when prices were Over 4 dollars a gallon

          • Chance Pemberton

            If you would remove the bias against southern states your arguments would be far more convincing. As it is you have matched the right extremists bigotry with your own version. May I also remind you that California has a powerful hard right conservative contegent with 37% voting for Romney in 2012 by contrast the so called red state of Texas is a major Democratic fundraising state in which 41% voted for Obama in 2012. So, what is red or blue is really getting close to a 50:50 split. Look for Texas to remain RED with a vote 55/45 in 2016 but in 2020 Texas will become BLUE with a vote of about 55/45.

          • HelloKitty

            Sorry, don’t think I have bias against southern states, when most southern states are anti-Obama because of race. Texas may turn blue due to Hispanic population, but you take the rest of the states, they are currently enacting laws to disenfranchise poor folks, who tend to vote democrats. That way, these states would ensure white candidates win, who most likely will be republicans.

You are what’s wrong with america, and even this message is your, and other unintelligent people way more than you deserve

        • Oligorkney

          There is a majority of fools in your opinion? How is that possible? The fact that a racist, biased and secretly hateful America could vote America it’s president only further negates you claim, theory, or any othe pretension. You hate the guy because he is black? Ok. But no one knows what he is up against because nobody lets him do anything!

          • HWB

            Barack Obama appears to be a tormented man filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. that was instilled in him by his family and mentors…it seems to have never left him.

            It is not the color of his skin that is a problem in America .. Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.

            Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. or its people, with deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings? Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets “goose bumps” when a band plays “The Star Spangled Banner,” or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of ” America the Beautiful?” Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday or someone plays “taps” on a trumpet?

            Has he ever shared the admiration of the military, as we as lovers of those who keep us free, feel when soldiers march by? It is doubtful because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values. He did not sit at the knee of a Grandfather or Uncle who showed us his medals and told us about the bravery of his fellow troops as they tramped through foreign lands to keep us free. He didn’t have grandparents who told stories of suffering and then coming to America , penniless, and the opportunities they had for building a business and life for their children.

            Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn’t delight in being part of America and its greatness. He wasn’t singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade and eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the grave sites of fallen and beloved American heroes.

            Rather he was separated from all of these experiences and doesn’t really understand us and what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unites us.

            He has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary, heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S. Or one that inspires us to be better and grateful and proud that in a short time our country became a leader, and a protector of many.

            Quite the contrary, his speeches always degenerate into mocking, ridiculing tirades as he faults our achievements as well as any critics or opposition for the sake of a laugh, or to bolster his ego.

            He uses his Office to threaten and create fear while demeaning and degrading any American who opposes his policies and actions. A secure leader, who has noble self-esteem and not false confidence, refrains from showing such dread of critics and displaying a cocky, haughty attitude.

            Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissension, unrest, and anxiety among the people of America , rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the “Great Uniter”).

            He creates chaos for the sake of keeping people separated, envious, aggrieved and ready to argue. Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort and security. He incites people to be aggressive toward, and disrespectful of, those of differing opinions.

            And through such behavior, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control and mature restraint to the level of street-fighting gangs, when he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, and self-assured.

            Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.

            · Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.

            · Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming and trustworthy force.

            · Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people – on a daily basis!

            Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America , and the epitome of a Demagogue. And you are one of the many fools that follow such a shallow soul. Live with it and let us rebuild America in 2016.

          • alaskanexile

            ah you want a fantasy president who makes you feel good while his party makes you poorer, aka Ronald Reagan?

          • HWB

            Ah, the median income of Americans have declined by $5,400 under Obama. Apparently Obama makes you poor and feel like crap at the same time. I take that to be up your line of living?

          • alaskanexile

            HWB have you somehow lost track of the fact that median income has declined for the last 30+ years? Why focus narrowly on the six years of Obama, who no matter how you cut it, worked after the Bush debacle. Once again you divide people with your partisan rhetoric, when its clear both parties are criminal.

          • HWB

            You are God given stupid and a hack. My six year old can google that stat from the government website. Median income in the USA has not declined until Obama took office. Redistribution of wealth does not and has not ever worked. Even an old school communist would tell you that. We know now that the slogans ‘change you can believe in’ and ‘change we need’ are code words for Barack Obama’s ultimate goal: ‘redistributive change’. For stupid people like you history begins yesterday and dementia begins at birth.

          • alaskanexile

            ah good ol red herrings. Well here is a great article on it.

            Median household income and the US economy:

            Since 1980, U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) per capita has increased 67%,[4] while median household income has only increased by 15%. An economic recession will normally cause household incomes to decrease, often by as much as 10% (Figure 1).

            Median household income is a politically sensitive indicator. Voters can be critical of their government if they perceive that their cost of living is rising faster than their income. Figure 1 shows how American incomes have changed since 1970. The last recession was the early 2000s recession and was started with the bursting of the dot-com bubble. It affected most advanced economies including the European Union, Japan and the United States.

            The current crisis began with the bursting of the U.S. housing bubble, which caused a problem in the dangerously exposed sub prime-mortgage market. This in turn has triggered a global financial crisis. In constant price, 2011 American median household income is 1.13% lower than what it was in 1989. This corresponds to a 0.05% annual decrease over a 22-year period.[5] In the mean time, GDP per capita has increased by 33.8% or 1.33% annually.[6
            ]Actually the Father of Capitalism Adam Smith says quite clearly in The Wealth of Nations that wealth needs to be shared or a country will fail.
            As for Hacks, you have that covered…no facts, all bluster and idiocy.

          • HWB

            You are so stupid you do not even know what a red herring is. Your comment above are words and one man’s opinion. Try getting your numbers from your loving government you hack.

            Historical Real Median Household Income for the United States

            Date US

            2013 $52,250

            2012 $52,117

            2011 $52,306

            2010 $53,469
            2009 $54,541

            2008 $56,290

            2007 $57,006

            2006 $55,978

            2005 $55,178

            Most educated people understand numbers better than they understand smoke. Your Obama keeps saying the deficit has gone down faster in his administration than any other. And fools like you say wow that is great, but the deficit is growing and continues to grow. When your Obama says we are running a SURPLUS, then you fools can boast knowing the deficit will go down, median income grows and the underemployed and those that have left the labor market will come back, only then you fools will grow some brains and can boast. Liberals live in a parallel universe where facts, hard data, history, logic and reason don’t
            matter, all that matters is how they feel.

          • alaskanexile

            Haha HWB people laugh at you with your metrics that show the downslide started with BUSH. More dumbassery. As the senility takes hold, I suggest a long walk into the mountains…cause surely no-one wants r needs you in this world. Bye

          • HWB

            Again you are the stupid fool. It is not a question of starting, it is a question of your porch monkey inability to correct the slide and making it worse. Only idiot would look at that and say gee I wonder why it does not improve under our current regime? If anyone needs the perfect example of how far Obama has drug America into the sewer, look no farther than this. Al Sharpton is one of Obama’s adviser and buddy. Sharpton is not qualified to be a garbage collector. However coke tends to bring bird of same feather together.

            Are we witnessing right now the most radically, extremely liberal, ideological president of our entire lifetime right here in the United States of America, or are we witnessing the most incompetent president of the United States of America in the history of our lifetimes? You know, it is a difficult question, “I’ve thought long and hard about it. Here’s the only answer I’ve come up with, and I’m going to quote Secretary Clinton: ‘What difference does it make?'”
            Hillary was asked for an opinion and replied “Who cares? Wet Willie and I are dead broke and don’t know where our next caviar and roast pheasant meal is coming from.”
            .
            The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president. You sir are the biggest fool of them all.

        Now Obama the Plant comes along. Unemployment 30 straight months over 9% 5 Years over 8% with 23 million people out of work, Oil $100 a barrel, Gas around $4.00 per gallon and has continued to get worst under Obama.

            “The president sends a bill to congress……” which country you from, idiot? It is the congress that has to introduce the bill, before it can even be considered for signature or anything. And the repub congress HAS NOT INTRODUCED any bills. Has REPUBS sent their version of bills on the most pressing matter to public – Immigration and Border – NO, Healthcare – BoenerNO, crumbling bridges and infrastructure – CRUZNO, the REPUBS are clueless on what to do except oppose the president because of his race. The ACA is working just fine, ask the millions who have benefitted. As for GERIMNDERED repubs who claim to represent people it is only a matter of time, before their gerrymandered districts will boot them out.

            Thank you, Kitty. I love cats. Helloooooo? I have 5 but always room for more. You made me laugh. Gomert – with a name like that. The right doesn’t even realize how far they are to the right. Any further and they will fall off the graph. But they are stumbling over each other to do just that. Which is good for those of us on the sane side. They can’t possibly weld support with the independents which is why it will be a good idea to have one of those right wing nuts win the nomination for president next years. Just remember the game changer — Sarah Palin, oh, thank The Lord for Sarah and her political daddy for 2008. After all, how the heck could a black guy with a name that rhymes with Osama with a middle Muslim name win if not for a senile old goose like McCain being his opponent. Let’s hope for a repeat performance. President Hillary Clinton. I like they way that sounds.

Damaged by the “shylocks” by “foot in the mouth” Biden. “Obama does not speak like a black person” by forgot my medication Reid.

      What agenda? Undoing the bush legacy will take many years….more than any of us might live. Could you and those like you back off for a moment, and realize that the US is in grave danger because of the huge reaction to American Imperialism, regardless of who you consider the puppet president. The president has little power at all. And our congress can’t agree on the color of grass. It is ALL, and I mean ALL about who makes money or looses money. That is it and that is all. Figure that out and you will get the Nobel Peace Prize!

    Bush was respected far more than that joke obama. Obama is nothing but an opportunist who is not much different than Yong-un. While people in this country are going down down down with no jobs and a lousy economy, Obama is spending thousands of tax payers dollars on his golf games and just bought himself an $8,000 golf bag! He just had himself a big joke party payed for again by tax payers and is living high of the hog!! Obama couldn’t care less about the people of this nation, even his own race hate him now! Obama and his wife are nothing but takers and work as little as possible! Both had their lawyer degrees taken away from them. As a junior senator, obama was there only 1/3 of the time. He would sign off some paperwork than disappear. After role call he was nowhere to be found. He is doing exactly the same thing now except we know were to find him, on the golf course while the country is laying stagnant!!!!!!!

And remember, just because you say it doesn’t make it true and you don’t have one iota of evidence that this “spirit thing” even exists, not one thing — except in the confines of your own mind. Yet you despicable people talk out of both sides of your mouths. You bible beaters think by using those words it justifies everythiing, or people are suppose to be afraid and convinced.

            Jesus was not considered to be a deity until the age of Constantine. Before becoming the official religion of the Roman empire, Christianity was a cult with hundreds of sects that couldn’t agree on anything. Constantine made them all get together and agree on a central set of principles. This is when the Bible was written (IE when they decided which of the Dead Sea Scrolls to include and exclude) and this is when the idea of the Trinity was fabricated. Go take a look at the Ethiopian bible, the Coptic bible, the Torah etc… They all include “Books” that were left out of the official Bible. Go Google the Dead Sea Scrolls to see how much was left out because the “Church” didn’t like what it said.

And rightly so. Have you looked at Hispanic or Black or Native Indian unemployment figures as a % of their population????
      And Obama’s $8000 golf bag…. where were you with Cheyne’s $5000 hammer, or $10000 toilet…..

  • ballsnow

    Doesn’t matter that Bush has been gone for 5 years, the damage he did to this country, will forever bring this country down. Bush killed hundred of thousands of innocent Muslims in Iraq, and can’t go to certain countries, because he’ll be arrested as a war criminal, he wasted 6 trillion taxpayer dollars in 8 years, while cutting taxes for this country’s richest, and he gave Wall Street 700 billion taxpayer dollars. Why do you think Wall Street spent 500 hundred million dollars, on Bush’s Lie-bary? Bush took more vacations, than any other President in US history. You can’t blame Obama for everything. Obama is a proven liar, but he didn’t do this all by himself, he had a lot of help, with the hypocrite Republicans and Democrats. Our government is owned by Big Business, and our politicians are owned by Lobbyists. Jesse Jackson Jr. is going to prison for 2 and a half years for stealing campaign money, Bush has never had any charges brought against him, for the deaths of 45 hundred US Soldiers, in Iraq.

      Yes and a President with homeless family members whose sole existence according to his own brother is to benefit his offspring just so they can witness poverty is how much better? Or is it just the other extreme we are talking here that you like best? How about a balance? A middle ground? An end to radicalism and oppression anyone?
      How else does that play out in society? 8 million dollars for Obama, 2 dollars in food stamps for you! 8 turned sideways is the infinity symbol. Its also the symbol of a racetrack that doesn’t get you anywhere and never ends, a game with a bunch of crashed cars and a single winner who gets a trophy and barely enough money to make it to the next rat race!
      Abundance doesn’t exist for Obama but sequesters and pinching taxpayers does. Infinite hell and poverty is Obama’s legacy for his brother and anyone else who he does not like. A man who lets his own brother live in a hut with .0000000008 of his income per day is a threat to the entire nations future so go ahead and bash bush! At least we had money under Bush!!!

    I don’t think Pyongang is a threat anymore, apparently US soldiers making mistakes and implosions done wrong by ignorant unskilled workers are causing far more damage than his farce of moving a rocket and not deploying anything at all.. Its not like that happened at all when bush was in office, ya know?
    Holder is allowing cartel criminal scums a free pass while he announces the pot laws won’t change and giving the guys peddling Kilos across international borders a better deal than someone providing pot to a grandma with glaucoma and cancer patients who deserve comfort because they’re sick from Chemo. What’s wrong with that picture? Its almost like he wants to team up with Obama and push them up the Canadian border to piss off our only real tight ally right when we need them, the UN by doing so.. Why are people still pandering on about Bush? I guess Roswell is responsible for the Watergate scandal or something to you all… Its ok. If we lose power and the economy crashes a second time due to stock implosion and no one in the real world besides investors and elites seeing a better bottom line unless the government contracts them all for medical or health care for us all while we starve that we won’t be thankful for socialism and dem power grabs or coercive techniques needed to implement socialistic, fascist regimes which are the exact radical opposite of Communist extremism and no better at all.

    Under Bush most still had their jobs and owned their homes. Unemployment was at 4.8% in REAL terms and gas was at $1.60 a gallon. Food was abundant and very affordable!
    Under Obama at least 18% of the population is without a job or only a part time job. Gas prices are at $4 per gallon. Many have lost their homes beside their jobs! We are now 17 trillion in debt with absolutely nothing to show for it not even a war! Food prices are thru the roof and even welfare pays more than the jobs they have out there! This country is on the verge of a completely collapse and the liberals still think Obama is doing a great job. The stupidity of liberals is unbelievable. Either they are so high on drugs all day long and do not see what is going on around them or they really are that stupid and just plain dumb not to see what Obama is doing to this country!!

    I see the heated debate over who’s better Bush or Obama…..neither have been really great…we can all agree on that? My question is when can we as a country/people start holding Obama accountable for his mistakes during his time in office without the Bush comparison? or continuing to pass the blame? Is the country really better now since Obama has taken the office?
    I’m neither for or against Obama or Bush. The whole comparison thing it’s somewhat boring and it’s the same bullshit day in day out when trying to talk about the current affairs in the country and the downward slide we’re riding right now.
    When can we discuss this without having to always look backwards and find blame?
    Fact is “we” as a country are not any stronger or have improved since Obama has taken office. And seems like we are still on a negative trend, look around, things are not better and don’t appear to be changing direction anytime soon. I’d like to see improvement and positive results versus bullshit promises and could careless under who’s administration it happens to fall under.
    Like the old saying, do the best with what you have to work with…and that goes for both past and present Presidents-Both are pretty disappointing.
    I’m just ready to focus on the here and now. Obama agreed to take on the job as President which also meant taking on all the responsibility for all that comes with the Job-a.k.a all the problems from the past and everything from that point moving forward. That was the main point of selecting this guy right? He was going to “change” things and get them back on track right? And yet we still have to hear the whole Bush did it better when he didn’t and Obama’s not responsible when he is and actually told the nation he would and could fix things…and he hasn’t plan and simple.
    So, here were are again with the argument of as soon as things don’t go as well as planned it’s back to the blame game. Blame all you want, the fact is the country is not trending in the right direction and the guy in office is to blame….that’s how the job as President works..lol…In the end his whole reason for getting into office was to turn things around……not so much….but it also means that He/we shouldn’t stop trying to get things back in order either.

    I’m amazed at the number of people here who don’t understand that the Ds and Rs have nothing to do with making policy decisions. They both agree on all of the government overstep and tyranny that we’ve seen for the last 100 years. Why 100 years? Because the Federal Reserve was created in 1913, and ever since then, we’ve had a government of the central bankers, by the central bankers, for the central bankers.

    Am I the only one here who notices that each president is the same as the prior when it comes to policy? Am I the only one here who notices that they only differ in rhetoric, but that each one inherits a slightly more degraded system? (This is because prior degradations are permanent, but “fixes” are always a temporary band-aid stretched over the underlying problem).

    Notice: The D and R puppets agree on: the IRS, voir dire at the local level (to control independent jurors), the continued supremacy and autonomy of the Federal Reserve (to print as much “legal tender” as it likes), foreign bailouts, domestic bailouts, the drug war, the prison industrial complex, gun control, and all other forms of abject government tyranny.

    Every policy that steals wealth from the average man, the power-seeking elected sociopaths agree on. It’s not surprising. They use your bigotry and servility to win power, and they have both realized there is an endless supply of bigotry and servility to keep you fighting amongst yourselves, so you don’t notice that they’ve made off with the entire pie.

    So, keep arguing over gay rights, illegal immigration, minor changes to welfare, minor changes to taxation, etc. THEY LOVE THAT! That’s precisely what slaves are supposed to do: Concern themselves with minutiae, and ignore “the big picture” (the highest hierarchical level of importance). Slaves are supposed to concern themselves with sweeping and cleaning and picking cotton. They are not supposed to worry about how the plantation is run …except to love and support the plantation owner (the Federal Reserve) and his overseers (Bush, Obama, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Biden, etc.) Ideally, the slaves will argue about which of the two overseers they like best —because that action is completely harmless to the unconstitutional operation of the U.S. government, and it is completely harmless to the looters who have taken over the U.S. government for their own personal gain.

    You, the American sheeple, will get what you always get: a plate of re-fried $#!+, covered in crumbs.

    That is, until you’re smart enough to become libertarian jury rights activists. If this was written in the 1850s, I would have suggested you become abolitionists. Every age has people who stand for true, undiluted liberty. 99% of the people on this board aren’t those people.

    Most of the idiots here are championing some false conception of “left” or “right,” are nothing more than boot-licking farm animals that love the farmer that intends to slaughter them.

The POTUS lies with almost every exhalation….and we are supposed to get “incensed” upon these fabricated stories? Far as I can see the occupants of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave lead a far more lavish lifestyle on the backs of the poor taxpayer, than this North Korean leader does.

      I know many that fled NK and after what you said I wish I could make you live there. Then you would refrain from posting your tinfoil hat nonsense.

  • SpaceDonkey

    That sonofa***** Dennis Rodman should be put in Guantanamo for his fraternization with this bastard.

  • Jack Frost

    That haircut must be at least worth 5 cents!

  • david5300

    Seeing how the DPRK prints counterfeit US dollars, he is probably worth quite a bit.

  • Marvin Williams

    The peoples of every nation on the planet now despise us for being so stupid to elect a fool like the “sub-human” Obama, or con artist, anti-christs such as Biden, Reid, Pelosi, Clinton, Panetta, Feinstien, etc…

    Cannabalism? Seriously? You expect anybody to believe that? It’s possible with how dumb and gullible my fellow countrymen have become. It’s obvious, because the US’s intelligent wanted to hang this entire government on 9-12-2001, just didn’t have the balls to match the brains.

      Take your meds and log off, stupid is not welcome here.

    And we send food and supplies to these bastards? They build their military and we send food, what fools Americans are.

    Hello. This is Phil A. Mignon here. Thank you.

    Ivan: what does your foolish little troll- like diatribe have in common with the article? Perhaps after reading of Kim Jong-un you were reminded of W-bush? Subconsciously plausible.

  • AlFranken

    I’m not sure how relevant Mr. Kim’s net worth is in regards to his ultimate gross worth; essentially, he is by far the wealthiest man in the world as he owns North Korea and all who reside there.

  • sandy222

    Rodman said he would not return ????? North Korea.

    Can one typist type ONE frigging article typo free just once???

  • Ghost

    Come on Amy He, how can we take you seriously when your article is nothing but sensationalistic and clearly designed to portray Kim Jong-un in a bad light. This is not journalism, this is just gossip. I’m not Korean, have no opinion about Kim Jong-un and I agree he’s probably not a good leader, but when reading your article I could not help but to roll my eyes.
    Phrases like ” North Korean citizens were reportedly resorting to cannibalism”, “The god-like leader”, “millions of North Koreans died in a famine” thrown out there without any research to support your statements just hurt your cause.

    You want to convince us, the rest of the world how bad Kim Jong-un really is? You want us to support your fight? Ok, leave emotions aside and write a well researched, well structured article. You know exactly what I mean. Good luck.
