OK, so they’re actually crying about the death of their Dear Leader Kim Jong-Il. I’m not sure if his death will ultimately be a good thing or a bad thing, but 2011 for sure has to be known as the year that some of the worst people on the planet met their end. Life in North Korea must be pretty horrible, almost as bad as an airport right before the holidays. Here’s a profile on what the country is like from the New Yorker a few years back. The craziest part is when Kim Jong-Il kidnapped a movie director so he could make movies in North Korea. That is not the type of person I’d want running my country. He was one hell of a golfer, though. 11 holes-in-one!

Libya Is Free

Posted: August 22, 2011 by Keith Stone in geopolitics, Libya

Moammar Khadafy’s oppressive regime ended yesterday in Libya after nearly 42 years and the streets are flooded with celebrations like the Tripoli Camels just won the Super Bowl. Khadafy was a nutjob who had no business running a country. In my book, anyone who dresses like a homeless woman has no business running a country, much less a KFC. This is great news for the Libyan people and hopefully the transition of power will go smoother than in other recent situations. As for now, the people are finally free and gas prices are finally going to come down in the U.S. There’s reasons for everyone to be happy.
