OK SOME REALLY SERIOUS SHIT IS HAPPENING IN NORTH KOREA
According to South Korean newspapers, last week the North Korean government PUBLICLY EXECUTED 80 people in 7 cities for watching South Korean/Western shows, movies, and videos, “pornography,” or possessing a Bible.
Apparently people’s attitudes and conformance are changing SO THIS IS HOW THE GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO SUPPRESS DISOBEDIENCE
They allegedly herded 10,000 innocent civilians into a stadium where they were FORCED TO WATCH THE EXECUTIONS BY MACHINE GUN FIRE
THIS IS HONESTLY SOME HUNGER GAMES SHIT HAPPENING IN REAL LIFE RIGHT NOW

A serpentine cryptid supposedly found in Japan on the islands of Honshu, Kyushu, and Shikoku, as well as the Korean Peninsula and Paupa New Guinea. It is described to be 1-3 feet in length, with a thick body wider than its head and tail. It is generally said to be black or rust colored with a brightly colored underside. Some have described the tsuchinoko as being able to move in straight line-which not typical for snakes-and others have described it taking its tail in its mouth and rolling down hills not unlike the hoop snakes of North American folklore. It is also said to be able to jump a meter high, spit venom, and make loud, high-pitched hoots and squeaks. While there have been frequent reports in the last century, the oldest report of the creature dates back to the 7th century, and is mentioned in the Kojiki, the oldest surviving book in Japan. Japanese legends tell that the tsuchinoko can speak, it prone to lying, and enjoys the taste of alcohol.
Holy shit, Anthony Weiner actually said something important.
It’s a miracle!
That’s been the Republican strategy since day one of Obama’s presidency. Block the President at every turn, then blame him for not getting anything done. In fact, here’s Newt Gingrich openly admitting to it.
That’s why Republicans block jobs bills — so they can blame Obama for the economy still sucking. They’ve blocked budgets, resulting in a government shutdown that they then tried to blame on Obama. They’ve tried over and over again to block Obamacare, and complain that it’s a failure as they work their asses off to try to make it fail.
It’s kindergarten politics, and we need to vote these schmucks out in November. A bunch of white guys throwing temper tantrums and shouting NO! to everything just because they don’t like the president is no way to run a government, especially if we’re going to continue to pretend to be one of the greatest nations on earth.
