Sunday is anniversary of Pearl Harbor attack

Seventy-three years ago Sunday  is  when Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese.
For you oldsters, do you remember where you were when the word got out on Dec. 7, 1941 that the attack happened?
Called “A date that will live in infamy” by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, it needs to be remembered by all, or those who are too young, need to study it and World War II history more closely.
The sneak attack came on a Sunday morning and the then-enemy destroyed ships in the harbor and killed scores of military personnel.
If you have an American flag, it needs to be flown at half staff, in remembrance of those lost their lives at that time and later.

    People need to understand that the day the NDAA was passed it was a date that has since lived in infamy but more need to wake up. Thank God Michigan is awake.

    Japan has shocked the world yet again. By dragging their heels on the major catastrophe in Fukishima and not taking the necessary procedures to stop what is happening,the whole world will now suffer.

    “That released material, radioactive material, then diffuses over the whole Earth. They’re then attempting to pour the fly ash (the results from the combustion) into the landfills, which will lead to a huge contamination of ocean water completely beyond comprehension. So the result of this contamination is not restricted to Japan, not limited to Japan, it’s spreading over the whole world.”

    “Completely beyond comprehension” how huge the contamination of ocean water will be — Fukushima

    Expert: People on West Coast right to be concerned about Fukushima plume — Things “could get much worse” — Lots of radioactivity flowing into ocean — Gov’t not testing water or fish

    This will have a devastating impact on the world’s future. Be scared folks,very scared. I urge all of you to do your own research on how BAD THIS REALLY IS. The two links are just the tip of the iceburg.

    One more for everybody to think about.

    “If one of the pools collapsed or caught fire, it could have severe adverse impacts not only on Japan … but the rest of the world, including the United States.”

      You think this is why those weird fish are washing up on California’s shores?

        It’s having a huge impact on all ocean life in the Pacific. Take the story of the mariner who has been making voyages back and forth across the Pacific for over 14 years.

        He noted that during all that time,he witnessed sea life actively living as well as seeing birds flying. Dolphins,humpbacks,etc… surfacing. Since the great calamity at Fukishima and now that ocean water has become radiated. He has only seen ONE humpback whale with a irratated growth on it’s head exposed and red in color and no birds.

        Look at what the Starfish on the West Coast have been doing to themselves or the Sunfish that was caught in the Puget Sound an area that is not it’s habitat. Was the Sunfish trying to evade something? Maybe it has the ability to sense radiation?

          Radioactive Fukushima Water Headed for US West Coast

          As nuclear industry and allies in government play down risk, scientists warn there is no such thing as safe radiation

          Canada Busted Covering Up Spikes In Fukushima Radiation

          “The governments of Japan, America and Canada have covered up the severity of the Fukushima crisisever since it started in March 2011.” quote from link above.

          People really need to start taking the “conspiracy theories” about population control seriously. Folks,radiating parts of the world is a damn good way to keep population numbers down.

    The attack on Pearl Harbor occured 72, not 62, years ago.
    Jerry Deal comments You are so right, guess I was trying to take 10 years off my age. Correction made.
