I thought this was the prevailing image of Americans in Best Korea.  Wouldn't this video just make them more sympathetic?  Or is it supposed to make them feel superior?

Fair amount of white power groups in Oregon

You're confusing Idaho with Oregon

Asphyxium: "Please.  There are no Republicans in Oregon. "  WTF OF THE YEAR!!!!  I have been to planet Oregonia and I assure you their Confederate flag waiving extreme ring wing conservative ways were duly noted.

WTF were you at?  Did you confuse Idaho with Oregon too?

I'm guessing you've never been in or around Klamath Falls?


Not in about 20 years.  After thinking of this, I did live in Albany/Corvallis areas for 5 years and I do recall one lifted yellow chevy truck with a confederate flag in the area.  In Molalla I recall seeing a flag in the window of a lifted off-road only truck being towed by a el Camino...  

I just think that to say there are a "Fair amount of white power groups in Oregon"would be like saying there are a fair amount of sunbathers in the Arctic - sure, you might find one if you look really, really hard or know exactly where to go - maybe K-Falls?

So, apparently the Norks have been abducting people for years.

Mentat: And in another, a bearded, apparently homeless man waits in line for food from a street truck vendor. "This man, a former Republican candidate from Oregon, is having to get coffee made of snow from trucks," our narrator grimly intones.

Please.  There are no Republicans in Oregon.


As a Central Oregonian, I can safely say... Yyyyyeah, there are really quite a few. Go East of the Cascade mountain range and it's very red.

GrogSmash: OgreMagi: Some years back a NK propaganda team made it a point of mentioning that the South Koreans were in dire straights because gasoline was so expensive.  A North Korean man made it across the DMZ immediately upon hearing this.  His (very good) logic was, "if they are complaining that gas is expensive, it means they can afford cars."

If that is true... I applaud him for his critical thinking skills :)


This was about twenty years ago.  I heard it second hand from my brother in law who was stationed there as a Korean Linguist for the Navy.  He has been known to exaggerate on occasion, so I can't guarantee the story's truthfulness.

My uncle lived just outside Klamath Falls for several years.  When I'd visit, there were certain times of the day when every AM radio station you could receive was playing Rush Limbaugh's show.

I later heard that Klamath Falls is (or was?) one of the KKK's few remaining strongholds in the country, as well.  And at least as recently as 2004, the right-wing crazies in Klamath Falls and elsewhere were a large enough voting bloc that Oregon was considered a swing state.

I would just like to say that I skimmed this thread and found it funny, as in a ha and a half.

autopsybeverage: MrEricSir: In a certain sense, snow is the main ingredient in coffee.

In a certain sense, hydrogen is the main ingredient in coffee.


In another, particles are the main ingredient in coffee.

Yummy particles.

Reminded me of the opening to the Dress to Kill DVD, where he's narrating scene from San Francisco (not SanFran).

/Alcatraz!

Greg Tolan: Snarfangel: ways

This reminds me of something I heard on NPR.  Evidently Joseph Stalin promoted the film "The Grapes of Wrath" in the Soviet Union and encouraged people to go see it.  The plan was for the Soviet people to see how bad and cut-throat things were in the US.  The plan backfired when the people who saw the movie were amazed that in the US, even poor people have cars.


That's like the North Korean fisherman "jumped" the border after listening about the horrible parking conditions in Seuol.

Horrible parking problems isn't something they have in North Korea.

In Romania (I think, possibly Hungary), their commie dictator allowed the soap opera "Dallas" on TV to show the horrible decadent ways of the American Rich.

Instead they revolted because they wanted mansions and cars like on Dallas, there's even a Dallas theme park there.
