Hello, my name is Frau Merkel; I’m an hysteric.


Germany Shuts Down Seven Nuclear Reactors

March 15: The 35-year-old nuclear plant of Neckarwestheim, Germany, is pictured. German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced seven of the country's reactors that went into operation before the end of 1980 will temporarily go offline.

Guten tag, Frau Merkel.

I know just how you feel… radiation was detected yesterday at DFW–the nearest major airport to my city and I’m petrified.

What if the radiation from passengers on a plane from Tokyo get on the Greyhound and spqarky 228come here and spread that killer rays at me and my dogs? I’m thinking of moving to Oklahoma… as far as I know, no Japanese people have ever gone to Oklahoma.

In the meantime I am taking precautionary measures with Sparky and my other two dogs, if it will only save one life we should shut down all nuclear power plants including all those dangerous submarines, and return to the 1950s… it would be worth it.  ___________________________________________________________

I thought that we as a populace, had finally matured… at least to the point where we no longer burn witches at the stake, but I gave most American far too much credit, if the polls are to be believed:     “…. 70 percent of those surveyed in a new USA Today/Gallup Poll say they’ve grown more concerned about the industry’s safety based on the crisis unfolding at reactors in Japan. Americans now oppose building more nuclear plants by a margin of 47 percent to 44 percent…”.

This is or was a nation driving a $14 trillion economy, the envy of every other country in the world, and millions of people just dying to come here… in many cases, I wish they would. 

What remains of the Greatest Generation must look at us and shake their heads sadly and with great bewilderment…. is this what Americans are now made of? Turn tail at the first shot fired… a president who finds even the word “victory” unsettling, but finds the raghead prayer “…. one of the prettiest sounds on Earth….”

I haven’t seen this kind of irrational group-think “assaninediness” since Y2K. Yeah the “swine flu” last year was amusing, but for getting its own reality show–“America’s Biggest Dumbasses Running in the Streets and Caught on Tape”–you have to go with all the computers in the world ticking down to 2…0…0…0…0 followed by Mad Max Part Deux.

I grew so irritated with people (whom I assumed were normal) storing water and food in their basements that I stopped trying to appeal to reason and went straight to mocking– for which I am told, I have an innate talent.

When asked if I was hoarding MREs and H20, it usually went something like this:

GA:  Nope. Don’t need to. 

Hysteric #1: Why’s that?

GA: ‘Cause I have guns and ammo and I know where you live. I’ve never seen anybody win a gunfight by bringing refreshments.

If people want to talk disaster, then let’s damned well talk disaster.

Fallout SheltersThe hysteria about Japan’s nukes is of what I like to call the uber-liberal variety…. only highly educated folks with time on their hands, degrees and crap, who drink chardonnay and whose kids play soccer worry about things they can’t comprehend. There’s not a plumber or an Odessa oil man who don’t understand what’s happening now in these reactors and thus, sleep soundly.

I used to pray, “God save me from mine enemies.”

Now it’s just, “Dear Baby Jesus, please save me from mine idiots; I have guns and ammo and I know where my enemies live”

So in the interest of restful sleep and the right to laugh my ass off repeatedly while saying “I tole you so” for the forseeable future… I’ll not write about this pifffle again unless it’s laced with copious amounts of derision.   

Nuke Fallout Reaches US…And Radiation Levels are a ‘Billion Times’ Below ‘Health Threatening’

 Obama to finally support no fly zone?

Heh-heh: Barack Obama Elementary School Going Out of Business…

And now for some grounded reality and sanity about real disaster and how man’s best friend has more than a leg up when it come to courage, devotion and what humanity should really mean:

    Thought some of your lines in this post were so good when I read it on your other blog, that I had to re-read it here. It’s still just as funny the 3rd time through. Let me know if you want your link address changed on my site.

    • Thanks….
      For some reason Sparky didn’t greet the tin foil hat with open ears.

      My attempt at humor is probably the only thing keeping more or less inside the lines, so to speak.

    You’re entertaining (while being informative). Bob Mack sent me your way.
