Caving In To Terror

Normally,  I would not be in favor of our government spending tax dollars on Public Relations, prefering to let actions speak louder than advertising.

But in the case of a rogue nation invoking 9/11 in a cowardly anonymous threat to trample the First Amendment rights of a major private business, I'll make an exception.

The United States government should buy out the rights to "The Interview" from Sony Pictures Entertainment and release the movie for free on Christmas Day via Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and any other Internet or TV provider.

That way all Americans can, in the safety and privacy of their own home, send Kim Jong-un a collective "Fuck You."

"We are not going to tolerate … attacks from outlaw states by the strangest collection of misfits, loony tunes, and squalid criminals since the advent of the Third Reich."  President Ronald Reagan, 1985

My favorite DPRK story -- the ChiComs are terrified that the regime will collapse entirely because they don't want a horde of refugees along with the Muslim problem they already have.

So the ChiComs are feeding them, sending trainloads of food down to prevent mass starvation. Except that "they stole our trains."

Apparently the North Koreans wouldn't let the empty trains leave -- they let the (Chinese) crews *walk* back across the bridge to the PRC, but they kept the locomotives & boxcars for their own use.

So now the ChiComs are loading up old boxcars and pushing them over the bridge -- bringing them up to speed and sending them hurtling downrange to stop somewhere in the DPRK -- and keeping their engines on their side of the river so they can't be stolen.

North Korea is worse than China or the USSR ever was -- they are scary...

And let's not forget our communist friends in Cuba: the Castro brothers. What? We couldn't wait for them to die?

Suckers!!

This is the greatest marketing ploy in history. You red-blooded, American jack-asses will be lined up with your greenbacks in hand all the way around the block to do your "patriotic (idiotic) duty" to see this dog-shit movie when it does get released.
Sony will laugh their tails off all the way to the bank.

At least you write better English than the hackers.

Quoting Reagan while we have the biggest jackass in office. Oh, and biggest disappointment.

The last black president

No -- Allen West -- a REAL Black man -- would make such a good President.

I've met him personally -- he is the real deal and would make a damn good President.

One other thing -- Mark Levine was pretty much saying what I was about the DPRK's ability to hack -- that they or the ChiComs could do some very serious damage to this country.

He asked "what would happen to this country if there was no electricity for two weeks?" Not like the Halloween storm where there were massive outages, or the above 1000 feet ice storm a couple years before that, but something like the 1966 blackout without (a) the old abandoned magneto-generating plant, (b)retired guys who knew how to run it, and (c) manual switches that could be open & shut manually.

Remember that modern turbines require electricity to make electricity -- like the alternator in your car, they need it for the field and without it, no electricity can be produced. (Electricity is produced by spinning a wire in a magnetic field -- we now use electromagnets and they just pull the power off the grid to start the turbines. But if the grid itself is down, umm....

Levine made a big issue of sanitation and food == and mentioned hospitals -- which have emergency generators but after a week, there are going to be logistical issues for their fuel, be it natural gas or diesel. And people are going to have cold houses...

This could get very very nasty...

I have quite a few conservative friends who love West. Hmmm. Maybe Galfianakis will be proved wrong.

This type of hacking can go both ways. Will hacking be considered an act of war? (Is it that already?)
