Things are just horrible in America.  Yes, the economy is in a helluva mess, government is far too big and unemployment is likely much higher than Washington will ever admit.  But according to North Korean officials, it's far worse than that.  You're eating snow every single day just to stay alive.

What you are about to watch is a North Korean propaganda film.  You will laugh.  I know I did.  I had tears in my eyes from laughing so hard.  Then it occurred to me: the people of North Korea will believe this nonsense.  Why?  Because their media is not free and independent.  It's controlled by a communist government led by a fat little troll of a man who only recently decided the 1953 cease fire is now null and void.  Grandstanding, showboating, call it what you will, but the people of North Korea, the majority anyhow, don't know any better, because they've been cut off from the outside world by a tyrannical, communist government.

Watch, learn, laugh and ponder.  Then thank God you live in America.
