North Korea

There’s not a whole heck of a lot I can say here that you probably don’t already know.  North Korea’s leader is a numb nut who even looks like he should ride the short bus.  He goes around touting his new missile project as a great technological advancement for the country and it breaks apart a minute after take off.  I wonder if those scientists and engineers are going to be punished.  I hear they have resorts in NK just for people the Communist party doesn’t like too much.  I would imagine Kim Jong Un isn’t too happy with those guys right now.

News broke a few days ago that they have all these concentration camps in NK.  They put people that speak out, have different political views, or are just undesirable in these labor camps and make them work themselves to death.  Some of the people are just put to death regardless.

This is a country in which the government watches everything.  If you’re a foreigner, you have an escort called a “handler.”  You’re shown only the good parts of the country, or the facade of good parts of the country.

We should consider ourselves lucky to live in a country such as the United States.  Think of the type of people it took to fight off the tyranny of the British government.  How many other countries can we compare to the US  that came from the same struggle?  None.  We are the only country that was founded as we were and remained basically the same for as long as we have.  Rome started as a group of small monarchies, as did most other old world countries.  Other countries tried to fight for independence, but we no new countries founded as a democracy or democratic republic.

Let’s look at the US now…

I am not saying that the US is NK, by any stretch of the imagination, but….  look at some of the recent actions of our government.  I want you to read this article about what what Homeland Security is doing.  My question is why does DHS need over 2700 MRAPs?  I can understand having a few… kinda.  Actually, what does Homeland Security need MRAPs at all?  Those are for COMBAT!  Seriously, what do they need combat vehicles for?  You can’t tell me that they need mine resistant combat vehicles inside the US.  On top of that, Homeland Security just bought 450 million rounds of .40 S&W hollow points.

Does this mean that we’re headed down the same road as NK?  No, it doesn’t.  It means, however, that the federal government is playing a dangerous game.  That along with the drones the feds are testing here in Oklahoma to, supposedly, monitor the US borders.

Soooo…. the NK government watches their people, our government watches us. Hmmmm…….

Thoughts?  Let me know!
