Angelo puts a stop to it swiftly because, while not perfect, he is a man who is working on bettering his commonwealth:
The question in question:
"Anybody know if there is any kind of independence movement for the N. Marianas?"
Who's to blame when the political parties get out of hand?

"[I]t is getting tiring listening to you people say things about "the unforgivable conditions" and then having you ask off the wall questions like is there an independence movement."

Granted, I disagree with him about totally dismissing Ms. Doromal (I think she overstepped ethical bounds though,)
I even get a little miffed looking at the environmental problems down here on Rota that seem to reside out of Beautify's Jurisdiction at this time (hopefully it's just a funding issue,) but whom does anyone truly respect without having some disagreements?
I think that Angelo (et. al.) is a great asset to the CNMI. Further, I think that folks like Dengre should hash out disagreements with Angelo rather than X-ing him off of the blogroll.
Lastly, I think that some of my fellow Kossacks should open up to the realities that folks like Angelo can share first hand about life, culture, and economics in the CNMI. I would defend DK with my life if I had to; however, that is not to say that there seems to be a problem with external pontification in reference to the CNMI and Saipan.
When discussing the CNMI, please remember that we ain't all sweatshops and oppression. Moreover, work is being done by dutiful people like Angelo, Bruce, and a slew of others to raise the discourse and to raise the quality of life in the CNMI.
Don't build Rome period, but definately don't build Rome in a day without stepping foot on its soil.
