Unlucky day for Jang Song Thaek, Kim Jong Un’s ousted uncle. He was executed for attempting to overthrow the state of North Korea. Awhile back, Kim Jong Un, friend for life of Dennis Rodman, executed a long standing General for the same thing. One might speculate that the old guard, the Republic of North Korea’s backbone is bristling against the youngster in charge. So, the youngster feels threatened and decided to eliminate his competitors and those disagreeable to his wishes. Taking out seniors makes a strong statement about who is in charge here.
Then again, it is probably time for Kim Jong Un to hire some tasters; you know, the guys who eat a little bit of food to see the result before Kim eats his kimchee.
“‘Traitor Jang Song Thaek Executed,’ said he committed ‘counter-revolutionary’ acts. It called Jang ‘human scum’ and ‘worse than a dog.’”
What else is going on this Friday the 13th? The House passed a compromise budget and the Senate is wrestling with that. They should just pass it and move on, but they can’t resist resisting because, conservatives, after all, are the resistance.
Conservatives are occupying Wall Street. They have a corner on wealth in America. Stinginess is conservatism and that is next to Godliness is it not? Or, is the penchant for wealth a Godless virtue?
Pope Francis thinks so.
