North Korea Propaganda
I first viewed this propaganda spokesperson on the BBC yesterday.
Admittedly as a propaganda tool for a totalitarian regime I suppose she is 'good' at her job. She strikes me as subscribing to the Adolf Hitler school of public speaking, as in loud and seemingly abrasive and then it 'must be true' to the brainwashed citizens that buy her brand. Not stating that all persons do in North Korea, but enough do. And of course it is spin and not a presentation concerned with truth.
Satirically, I would hate to be a family member of hers...
Historical background. The spokesman looks like he could be the brother of the woman in first clip above...

According to Blogger, this blog is now receiving approximately 800 pageviews per day, while my other blog, Dr. Russell Norman Murray/thekingpin68, which is linked at the top right of this blog receives approximately 200 pageviews a day. That means I am at approximately 1000 pageviews per day with my work and ministry and should receive over 300, 000 pageviews in 2013. I deduce from the various statistics sources I use, I have approximately with the two blogs 500, 000 pageviews since 2004, this blog starting in 2006, the other blog in 2004. I appreciate the increased amount of pageviews which has mainly taken place on this blog with the other blog having a slight increase.
It is a bit troubling to see that any increase in followers has leveled off with Google/Blogger Friend Connect and Networked Blogs/Facebook. I honestly I am not certain why I am having a steady increase in pageviews on this blog without having an increase in followers, although since adding Google+ and Google+ followers on the Dr. Russell Norman Murray/thekingpin68 blog, there has been a decent increase in the number of those followers. Perhaps the amount of spam emails is an indicator that my strategy over the years is working. I receive three figures a day in spam email comments, and the strategy to cumulatively add more and more articles/posts seems to be leading to increased pageviews.
Sadly, Stats Counter and Site Meter which like Blogger keep track of my blog statistics and also, unlike Blogger, keep track of the location of hits, are not keeping accurate statistics in my mind. These two services have me at approximately 200 pageviews per day. With the distribution of the blog hits being virtually equal. I reason that many, many of the Satire And Theology pageviews are being missed, perhaps as many as 80%-90%.
A good sign is that I have been receiving more personal email requests for assistance or just a comment, mainly in regard to the other blog. I always attempt to assist. Free of charge (my brother asked if I charged). When I was an MPhil/PhD student few scholars would assist me in such a way...
As I have stated before, blogging is important to me but not as important as meeting people online and perhaps in person.
Numbers are numbers, people are people.
Thank you for your support.
