North Korea tells its people how Americans live today.
We were told by Mao that life in the West was so miserable that they were waiting for us to liberate.
(Love the translator's Northern English accent. ;-))

Our poor is better off than 99.99% of North Koreans BY FAR.
Are they showing how things are here in the good ole US of A or how things ARE in NOKO?
Here. (from their warped, propaganda perspective)
I should add ‘projection’ to that. ;-)
Anything about “poor little Trayvon” being racially profiled and gunned down with his Skittles and Iced Tea?
I love hot snow. Yummy.
I’m sure the North Koreans will pity the “poor” Americans who are morbidly obese.
They would probably rather eat them.
Are our poor resorting to cannibalism these days?
Some North Korean charities in America have noticed that some Americans, having become accustomed to their daily cup of snow, and not recognizing real coffee, at first reject it, and request their familiar cup of snow.
We spend zillions defending ourselves from 2% of their government I don't know why we don't backdoor undercut their propaganda with everything proudly stamped MADE IN AMERICA.
The average North Korean has no idea what the world is really like outside their daily struggle to survive.
I have a friend from China, whose 60+ year old aunt recently visited for a brief time. She told me a funny story. When they were young, during the Cultural Revolution, they had "study sessions" where they would have to sit through propaganda about all the "contradictions" in American society - how everyone hated their corrupt, capitalist politicians and leaders so much, the people would throw eggs and tomatoes at them when they appeared in public.
A few of them noted privately to themselves - wow! American must be a great place. People have so many eggs and tomatoes they can afford to throw some at their politicians? We are literally starving to death, and they are throwing eggs!
Yes, and good thing there is plenty of snow here. It’s just too bad we ate all the birds.
North Koreans still have the sessions, in their school or workplace or whatever.
Have not heard anything that good since I listened to Hanoi Hannah in Nam, telling us how the 1st Infantry Division had been wiped out (we had taken a few rounds from a sniper that day, no casualties).
Man.........I feel sorry for us now.
You should be in luck alaska.
Plenty of snow, and fewer people to share all the birds.
