PYONGYANG (The Borowitz Report)—North Korean leader Kim Jong-un surprised Korea-watchers today by abruptly cancelling his nation’s controversial rocket test and launching a fragrance instead.
The dictator’s signature fragrance, called “Number Un,” could be on store shelves in time for Christmas, according to the Korean Central News Agency.
The decision to launch a fragrance rather than a rocket “shows a kind of realism that has been rare in the Kim family,” said North Korea expert Dr. Hiroshi Kyosuke, of the University of Tokyo.
“I think Kim Jong-un most likely said to himself,‘Given how badly my last rocket did, maybe I’ll just launch a fragrance,’” he said.
The official North Korean announcement offered this description of the new fragrance:“Number Un deliriously combines the sweet smells of North Korea’s native unicorns with the irresistible aroma of our Dear Leader himself. This holiday season, every kiss begins with Kim Jong-un.”

DEBIL IS INSPIRED TO CREATE AN ANALOGY FO' THE U.S. MEDICAL SYSTEM... UM.... OH, HE GOT IT!
SO, UM, IN AN IMAGINARY WORL' WAY IN THE FUTURE, A MEXICAN REPUBLICAN WITH BLACK ROOTS HAS FINALLY BEEN ELECTED PRESIDENT. HE APPOINTS THIS WHITE CHICK THAT LOOKS LIKE A YOUNG ELLE MACPHERSON HIS SECRETARY OF HOTNESS. SHE HAS ACCESS TO ALL THE HOTNESS DATA IN THE WORLD AND HAS AN UNLIMITED BUDGET TO STUDY WORLD HOTNESS, FORMERLY KNOWN AS GLOBAL WARMING.

IN THEORY, HER JOB IS TO REPRESENT ALLLLLLLL THE PEOPLE IN AMERICA WHO ASPIRE TO EXTREME HOTNESS. THE PROBLEM IS, SHE CAIN'T SERVICE EVERYBODY SO SHE GOT TO CHOOSE WHO TO SHARE HER HOTNESS DATA WITH. IN THE END SHE REASON THAT RICH PEOPLE, WHO GOD OBVIOUSLY DECIDE DESERVE MO' HOTNESS AN' THEREFORE MO' OF HER ATTENTION, SHOULD BE THE ONLY ONES SHE INVITE UP TO THE REDECORATED LINCOLN BEDROOM FO' LESSONS IN HOTNESS.

YOU SEE? ELLE COULD BE THE BES' SECRETARY OF HOTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE - WHICH SHE CERTAINLY IS - BUT IF SHE ONLY SERVICE THE RICH THEN WHAT GOOD IS SHE? DEBIL MEAN, IT NICE TO KNOW ELLE OUT THERE BUT HE HARBOR NO ILLUSIONS ABOUT EVER USIN' HER.

Yes they are. It has already stated. 2013 may see tax revenue at an all time low. This will further the debt and possible give us a third or fourth downgrade. That's the problem with libtards. They never factor in the laws of unintended consequences.

Romney did not "support" rape candidates. He adamantly condemned both statements and completely distanced himself from them.

But you just explained why Obama won more than I did.

So what was Obama's "immigration stance"? Except all talk and no action as was specifically pointed out to the president in that Spanish television show interview.

Obama can increase tax rates all he wants, but those with the ability to do so will find a way to avoid paying.
The left always makes the mistake of assuming that their actions will not affect economic behavior, that the cows will meekly line up to be milked.
When you tax an economic activity at higher rates, such as capital gains and/or dividends, you will see less of that activity.
He's not raising rates, he's letting Bush's supposedly temporary tax cust expire. If they could have been avoided then why did Bush have to implement them?

No I can't. I sat in amazement as the guy was saying it. But then he said the government was in favor of it. So, who knows where that will lead down the road.

Even though it didn't come from your mouth consecutive minds think alike. Proof your response too my last post! Just like every other right wing nut, you attack something that has nothing to do nothing. His birth certificate, his college applications, his religion, whats next? He don't qualify to be president because he wears boxers not briefs or because his boxers aren't magical! We can talk economy if thats what you want, but 1st acknowledge the fact that none of this was his doing. He is the solution, bush was the problem. Nothing he's done in office was in opposition of progress of for the middle & lower class. Infact one can say the opposite. Do I have to remind you that you just voted for mitt romney, or do I have to name all the republican candidates & all there ludicrous ideas/ideology & outdated theories & socialist views? Barack Obama was the best man for the job so if you think he's incompetent whats that say about who you chose to represent you & your views?
No, PROVING credentials is helpful when deciding on candidates CAPABLE (rather than incompetant) for jobs.

Such can be very telling and helpful in discerning in whether one actually has the ability in at least recognizing even simple things, like the correct usage of doesn't and "don't".

BUDGETS-often mean reigning spending IN and staying within means-NOT spending MORE, especially that which isn't there!

Libya.

Foreign Policy FAILURE...in PROTECTING those who served AMERICA.

All's fair in POTUS picking-that's the REAL world!

So the dividends get paid now instead of a month or two later. How dos that hurt the economy.

Why do corps care what the tax rate is on dividends, they aren't paying it.

Investors will adjust their strategies just as did they did when Bush lowered the rates.

You freakin morons act like no one ever got dividends or capital gains before 2001.

No, government has no business in any of that kind of thing. INCLUDING funding.

He appeared in ads after the statements were made.

His campaign supported him.
