And let’s watch all the naysayers freak. 
The sky is falling--again

So the wicked old witch is dead. Ding Dong the witch is dead. Hot dang, let’s throw a party. For some reason as soon as I heard the news of the passing of North Korea’s plantation owner, North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, this classic song came into my head, of course I changed a few words in my interpretation.  
But in the same way as kidnapped victims fall under the spell of their captures, the citizens of his North Korea were brainwashed by their prison warden. Their leader, there slave owner. For what else can you call a people who are under the mere whim’s of one man. Someone who controls every part of their life. From birth to death. To the point of brainwashing you into total obedience. You have become their God. 
Because that was the reaction I was witnessing on my television screen. These oppressed people were grieving the loss of their God. Crying themselves sick. In the same way as other tyrants are grieved after their passing [or assassination].
Now of course the talking heads, the so-called experts, most from previous administrations or wannabee’s are having seizures at the possibilities now that junior might be running the joint. [An aside, how young is in. I mean the kid looks like Hiro from Heroes’ DNA got mixed up with ‘The kid in King Arthur’s Court].
I know this could be bad, I mean he can tap that little button and start a nuclear war if he soils his diapers. And he might be exactly like his father or worse. Or maybe his Aunt or the other top dogs over there, who will be really in charge. 
Oh my God! Stop worrying already. If that happens, it’s over. Say good night Gracie. We be all dead. 
Just wanted to wake you up you big strong military geniuses. Okay, calmed down now. Good because that’s as bad as it could get. That’s the worse case scenario. I think.
What if perhaps junior’s been the good son. The obedient son. But secretly he hated his father and his ways. What if the kids’ gay? Didn’t see that one coming did you? At least then the country might get a whole lot more colorful.
Perhaps he’d free his people. Feed them. Build infrastructure. Bring North Korea into the 21st century. Make it the model of a modern society. Maybe start negotiations to join the two Korea’s together. I mean it worked in Germany. Right?  
Of course if he attempted any of this, his life might be cut short, or worse. His people might be in for a worse fate. South Korea might actually attack first. Heck, there’s got to be a Michelle Bachmann or Newt Gingrich type in South Korea pushing to attack the North Koreans. 
I rather think of the sunnier scenario if you don’t mind. At least for a few days thank you.
Just one man’s opinion
