For decades, consumers of the US media have been fed a series of repeated lies concerning the status of northern Korea. Tales of mass starvation and brutal torture are told over and over, occasionally updated but essentially the same as those told when Washington first realized it could not defeat the national forces headquartered in Pyongyang..........

What about the defectors and survivors of the gulags? Can we believe them or are they just another pawn of MSNBC? There is no doubt that mass starvation was endemic in the 90's and the stories of what goes on in the gulags is as horrific as tales from Nazi concentration camps.

I get the whole "the media lies man" thing, but why do you/CP support every asshole dictator on the planet?

I don't "support" them, I just want our dictators to receive equal vilification.

When our leaders send us to gulags where women are forced to kill their own babies we can start talking about equal treatment.

+ According to Sanho Tree, drug policy expert at the Institute for Policy Studies, Trump’s border agents are now giving Canadian cannabis workers lifetime bans from entering the US:

“Saunders said he believes border guards spend time on Canadian cannabis companies’ websites, taking note of the individuals listed as staff members in case one of them tries to cross into the US. ‘They’re putting ‘lookouts’ on them.’”

Marijuana is being legalized while at the same time being recriminalized. 

While it was illegal everyone was being pretty meh about it and it was chill, but now there's all kinds of new ways to get a criminal record from it. 

All they've done is legalized the industry, average users are absolutely fucked by these new laws.

They don't seem to get the concept of "legal".
