I am still in the process of compiling and editing my GTY blog
articles on eternal security, but I have had the occasional moment to surf around the Internet, and I have come across some interesting stuff.
On Monday, some one sent me a picture of this map:
All those bright colors certainly look ominous.
The claim is that when the nuclear reactor in Japan melts down, it will spew a massive, radioactive green cloud into the air, which will be carried by the winds across the vast Pacific ocean to the golden shores of California where it will dump 750 rads of radiation on our populace thus turning us all into super, mutant X-men; or maybe unleash an army of gigantic, human-sized crabs with razor claws on downtown Santa Monica.
I of course welcome either scenario, but the tone of alarming panic begged people to start scarfing down potassium-iodide tablets. And can you believe it!? The person sending this email just so happens to have some of those tablets he could sell you.
Anyhow, come to find out the map is a hoax.
But, in spite of the fake map, people still want to believe a radioactive cloud of death is heading our way. So much so that even our pudgy, out-of-shape Surgeon General said it would be a good idea to get potassium-iodide tablets
But the cold-hearted progressives at SLATE say we shouldn’t send any financial aid to Japan because they’re like really rich and don’t need our money
. In fact, I have read many opinions comparing our U.S. government response to the Katrina disaster with how Japan’s government is handling this earthquake/tsunami disaster and of course Japan is being held up as the perfect model. Nothing like that bumbling, joke of a government under G.W. Bush. But in reality, no government can be depended upon to be the savior of the people
a couple of non-Japanese related items:
Grant Horner, English professor at Master’s College, did an interview with CT explaining how the themes of many of our modern movies revolve around man’s fall and our redemption. He has written a book on the subject.
It’s All About the Fall
I wish my car was this easy to fix.
