North Korean Humor………….
Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general. This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership.
He hadn’t even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or commanded a military platoon.So he is made the “Beloved Leader” Of North Korea.
Oh nutz, I’m sorry…
I just remembered that we did the same thing.
We took an arrogant phony community organizer, who had never worn a uniform, and made him Commander-in-Chief.A guy, who had never had a real job, worked on a budget, or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration, and we made him “Beloved Leader” of the United States – Twice!
So if you think North Koreans are stupid…
I’m sorry I brought this up…never mind, just go back to whatever you were doing and forget this. It’s too embarrassing
This is based on Alinsky’s eight steps from Democracy to socialist society.
Obama Quotes him often in his book and Hillary did her thesis on Alinsky.
ALMOST DONE. JUST ONE ELECTION DECIDES OUR FATE…
There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a socialist/communist State. The first is the most important
5 OF THE 8 ARE DONE – THE LAST 3 ARE ALMOST THERE
- Healthcare: “Control Healthcare and you control the People”
- Poverty: Increase the Poverty level as high as possible.” Poor People are easier to control and will not fight back if the government is providing everything for them to live.
- Debt:Increase the National Debt to an unsustainable level.” That way you are able to increase Taxes, and this will produce more Poverty.
- Gun Control: Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a Police State – total local control.
- Welfare: Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Livestock, Housing, and Income).
- Education: Take control of what People read & listen to, take control of what Children learn in School.
- Religion:Remove faith in God from the Government and Schools.
- Class Warfare: Divide the People into the Wealthy against the Poor. Racially divide. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to Tax the Wealthy with full support of the voting Poor.
