Japan.

I've avoided writing about this, because I don't know what to say.

It's fucking horrifying.  I watched one video of the tsunami and had to turn it off.  It turned my stomach.  I don't deal well with these huge, abstract things that I have no control over.  I cannot wrap my head around the thousands dead, the hundreds of thousands homeless, without food, without shelter, half a world away.

The reactors.  Sweet jesus fuck, those fucking nuclear reactors.

It all terrifies me.  If I think too much I lose sleep.  I get sick to my stomach.  So I try not to think about it.  That might make me a bad person, I don't know.

I saw posts today from people who said that this was due payback for Pearl Harbour, and I want to punch these ignorant redneck douchebags in the throat.  If this is "God's" payback for Pearl Harbour, then they may want to duck and cover because I'd hate to see what he has in store for America for bombing the everloving shit out of Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

What the fuck is wrong with people?

Times like this all I can do is hug my kids and get down and kiss this giant expanse of rock we call the Canadian Shield.

  1. Some people are just assholes so you just have to ignore them. No really you do. I saw those comments as well and was also pissed.

    This was not revenge for Pearl Harbor. Revenge for that was kicking their ass for the next 4 years that followed. And the 2 bombs weren't pay back either. They were used to prevent the upwards of 2 million casualties (on both sides plus civilians) that would have died had we had to invade their mainland to end the war. People ignorant of history piss me off like how grammar nazis get pissed off at my writing. And this rant was not meant for you, but for the fucktards who made those comments on the web about Japan.

  2. I am so glad I have not come across any comments from people saying that about Pearl Harbour. I would have had no control over what I replied to them. Not that I understand any God business but doesn't He preach understanding and love regardless of culture and what someone has done to you in the past. So surely these idiots who are calling it payback should expect a smiting from God any day now for being such close-minded hillbillies!

  3. Wow, I can't believe people said that this is payback (how am I still always surprised by people's ignorance?) Really, what the fuck is wrong with people?! And no, I don't think it make you a bad person for not thinking about these things. If I think about these things too much, I get depressed, and what good does that do for the world?

  4. Like that one comedian says, you can't fix stupid.

    I have no idea what goes through some people's ignorant, sanctimonious heads. They're an embarrassment.

  5. that's like when some people said the earthquake in haiti was god's punishment for their voodoun practices.

    yeah. sure.

    if we're going with the idea of 'payback' for japan, i'm pretty sure some huge effing bombs already counted as 'payback'. duh. i hate most people.
