North Korea Pics Reveal “Humiliating" Weaponry

Ben Marquis, Conservative Tribune

While the world watched North Korea celebrate the birthday of the founder of the rogue communist regime, many media outlets took notice of the unveiling of what are believed to be new medium-to-long-range missiles, but something else was also unveiled that gained far less notice.

The Yonhap News Agency reported on the appearance of a new special operations unit during the military parade, likely intended as a display of strength meant to dissuade President Donald Trump from taking any sort of military action against the nuclear-ambitious commies.

“Once Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un issues an order, they will charge with resolve to thrust a sword through the enemy’s heart like lightning over Mt. Paektu,” proclaimed the proud parade broadcast announcer while referencing the Korean peninsula’s tallest peak.

But while the few media outlets that took note of the unveiling, like the U.K. Daily Mail, keyed in on the at-first-glance fearsome appearance of the special operations unit, Conservative Tribune’s own in-house military experts — one of whom is a former special operator — noticed a few rather humiliating details that the supreme Shortround probably won’t be too happy about.

For starters, much of the equipment the “highly trained” soldiers was toting were outdated designs left over from the Soviet era, such as the dual-lens night-vision goggles that destroy depth perception or the North Korean-produced AK-74 knockoff rifles that have terrible ballistics and are inferior to just about anything U.S. troops are using.

The Reagan Tax Cuts Worked

Thanks to "bracket creep," the inflation of the 1970s pushed millions of taxpayers into higher tax brackets even though their inflation-adjusted incomes were not rising. To help offset this tax increase and also to improve incentives to work, save, and invest, President Reagan proposed sweeping tax rate reductions during the 1980s. What happened? Total tax revenues climbed by 99.4 percent during the 1980s, and the results are even more impressive when looking at what happened to personal income tax revenues. Once the economy received an unambiguous tax cut in January 1983, income tax revenues climbed dramatically, increasing by more than 54 percent by 1989 (28 percent after adjusting for inflation).
