FUKUSHIMA & 2013/2014 GOP – COLLOSAL MELT-DOWNS!
To both of these instances we can pen the following phrase, not actually uttered outright by J. Robert Oppenheimer (“the father of the nuclear bomb”) in 1945 but a thought nonetheless that he later admitted on television that went through his mind on that fateful morning of July 16, 1945 in Trinity, New Mexico while witnessing history’s 1st nuclear bomb detonation. It was a line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. The words are from Vishnu who is attempting to persuade a prince to do his duty:
“Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”
One can only hope that the spike in thyroid and throat cancers to come to this country in the very near future as a result of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant melt-down disaster will perhaps not show up in the good and the deserving but rather target only the blowhards and the hate & fear-mongers in the right-wing and just like the radiance of a thousand suns (the mighty Vishnu/the Destroyer of Worlds) blot them and their venom out of existence so that the rest of us normal fools can simply pick up where we left off (way back in 1980 with the election of Ronald Reagan as President) and get on with our lives in some semblance of real normalcy.
If, by chance, this comes across to some of you as overly harsh, I’m sorry good & gentle people but that is precisely what this country has come to. And just to give you a heads-up, the upcoming off-year elections in November-2014 will be nuclear in all respects. Drink your barium and tuck yourselves into your basement-equipped bomb shelter until the day after election day.
