I'd like that ocean side property on Mars. Just add water.

Port Arcadia needs to go up there sometime before 2190.

North Korean boat reportedly hijacks 3 Chinese vessels

WTF are the North Koreans doing? What do they hope to gain by biting the hand that feeds them?

That is a clear sign the dog is rabid and is time to put it down.

It could be that the North Korean navy or at least individual captains have found a new source of income.

And so the ignorant comments on DPRK continues. Why can't those who do not know what is going on just leave it to those who actually knows something?

Anyway, on the news at hand: The money demanded is to be sent not to North Korea, but to someone in Dandong. This seems to indicate that it's a criminal-related situation, possibly the Chinese underworld and corrupted elements of the KPA working together.

^ Nonetheless the chinese goverment will lose face if they bow down to North Koreas demands, even if the incident is related to chinese mafia it only gets worse since the world then will say "So, the chinese goverment does not have the mafia under control?"

I don't know much myself, but that it involves the North this time seems... concerning.

This sounds probable. So for China it would be more like a case of corruption that spilled a little bit outside the border.

I am pretty sure that the North Korea banking system is very influential in China and their branches may be found everywhere. Yep, it is like a piece of cake to get huge amount of money from China to NK.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

At this point, it's gotten so tiresome to have heard this sort of news over and over and over again for the past four years, you gotta wonder how they themselves still have the energy and self-respect to perpetually and straight-facedly act like first graders.

Exactly. The Democrats will block anything the Republicans try to do, simply because they're Republicans. The Republicans will block anything the Democrats try to do simply because they're Democrats. It has nothing to do if it's a good idea or not.

Well now, that's not quite was I was getting at. It's true, Dems do oppose Repubs on many occasions, but I swear half the time, it feels like they're in a mad dash to capitulate to whatever the GOP demands on policy, agreeing to abandon any issue in hopes that some pre-emptive "compromise" will make the GOP more likely to work with them. Hint: it does not.

And it's pretty much a one way street in recent years. But if someone has some examples of Republicans foregoing pieces of their platform on numerous occasions in order to try to "appease" the opposition, I'd be very curious to see. Although this might not be the thread for it...
