On this Independence Day we celebrate our freedom and also look toward North Korea's tyrannical oppression:

In NK the government operates a massive spying apparatus that monitors all its citizens' activities and communications, while in the US... wait, scratch that.

In NK citizens can be indefinitely detained, tortured, and executed without trial, while in the US... okay, we'll start over.

In NK the government and their cronies are unaccountable for their actions, no matter how criminal or how much suffering they cause ordinary citizens, while in the US... this isn't going where we want it.

In NK the media act as lapdogs for the government and unquestioningly echoes talking points handed to them by officials, while in the US...

I'd like to go to North Korea someday. The mountains are supposed to be breathtaking. And if nothing else, I'd get to meet an ex-president when they came to negotiate for my release, or maybe Dennis Rodman, so that'd be pretty cool.

TWX: NK is like 1984, while the United States is more like Brave New World.

That's preposterous. If the US was like Brave New World, I'd be getting laid.

Forty-Two: [ image 850x600]
Maybe they meant "free from all kinds of  taxis"?

It was written with a really strong accent.

Apparently when you have your picture taken, you have to have your hand outstretched, with either one finger or your entire hand pointing to something off-camera.

This makes the viewer wonder what they are pointing towards. Is it Godzilla? The DPRK People's Army's rifles trained on them? The ass of Kim Jong-Un? We may never know.

mootmah: Take notes berylman. This is how it's done.

It's funny because everything I said is true.

In NK all your calls and emails are monitored because oppression. In the US it's because we're the freest country in the world.

Flab: Obligatory

Well, their bus stops have umbrellas over them. I'd say they've mastered some great technology that the USA still needs to fully grasp.
