Ending North Korea trip, Dennis Rodman calls Kim an ‘awesome guy’

Ending his unexpected round of basketball diplomacy in North Korea on Friday, ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman called leader Kim Jong Un an “awesome guy” and said his father and grandfather were “great leaders.”

Ok. Let me see if I have this straight. Washed-up Has Been parties with a tinpot dictator who is the son of a tinpot dictator of a third-world shithole country that is laughingly attempting to hold the world ransom because communism is failing once again and they’re are staving their people to death. And Washed-up Douchebag says both are “great leaders”? He must be taking lessons on How To Stay Relevant from Dannie Glover, Sean Penn, and Harry Belefonte. Here’s a suggestion, Washed-up Douchebag; stay in N. Korea.

Cigarette tax jumps up $1 a pack in Chicago

Taxes on cigarettes sold in Cook County are going up by one dollar a pack.

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle says the tax, which takes effect Friday, is expected to generate more than $25 million annually for the Cook County Health and Hospitals System.

So a pack of smokes in Shitcago will soon be close to $11 thanks to over $6 in taxes? Sounds the students of of the Jesse Jackson School of Shithole Politics and Pocket Lining aren’t getting enough green out of their constituents.

Preckwinkle says the county Revenue Department will hire more staff to help stop tobacco smuggling and tax evasion.

LOL!! Those morons couldn’t stop the mafia from smuggling liquor during prohibition. Now they want to raise taxes for more money for their pockets coffers and want to hire more pockets to fill which will require more taxes infinitae ad nausium. Cigarettes are less than $5 a pack here in Texas. Even less in Mexico. I could send one 18 wheeler up there after loading up in Mexiho and even after paying off all the politicians make a huge profit. Way to go, Chicago voters. Remove all doubt that you’re more stupid than a box of rocks. I say wall it up and let it burn.
