You Gotta Live Your Dream

From The Daily Mail:

The American who tore up his own tourist visa on landing in North Korea and demanded to be arrested so that he could experience prison life in the communist nation has been sentenced to six years hard labor for entering the country illegally to commit espionage.

Matthew Miller, 24, of Bakersfield, California, looked thin and pale at his trial in Pyongyang on Sunday, as he was handed out his sentence.

I have no doubt Matthew is a progressive who believes, in his heart, life under Communism - even in prison - is better than living free in America. If that's his view, then he should have the opportunity to pursue it. There's nothing more American than that.

I'm so happy for him.

1 Good for him! Congratulations dude!
Now if we could only get all the rest that hate America to leave.

3 It will interesting to see his interview when (and if) he gets out of prison in 2020. Maybe he will change his mind.

4 I see it going one of three ways. He might get negotiated out, he might die there, or serve his time and come out praising Dear Leader. Definitely a weak minded individual so I'm betting on the last... if he lives.

5 Greetings:

Last time I passed through Bakersfield, I didn't notice any Progressives. A lot of sun-baked, crack-addicts, but no Progressives.

7 Not quite Darwin Award material yet...

Dont you have to die to be a candidate?

Are the Norks going to bill his family for his imprisonment ?

8 He didn't tear up his passport. The norks did.

He was caught proselytizing on a tourist visa. Everything else is nork propaganda bullshit.
