As the Henny Pennys, Goosey Looseys, and Turkey Lurkeys throw back their heads in open-mouthed hysteria over the nuclear reactor damage at the Japanese power plants, the calmly informed voices of those who are actually in the nuclear know are ignorantly ignored.
Even though the real disaster caused by this tremendous earthquake and its aftershocks is the subsequent tsunamis that washed over thousands of Japanese citizens and their towns, the media mavens and their bureaucratic counterparts are in the throes of an Armageddon orgasm as nuclear meltdown madness sweeps the globe.
Never mind that these idiots have not a clue what a nuclear meltdown actually entails. Or that all their panicky hyperbole is based on second and third hand accounts of what is really happening at the scene. The only image these doomsday divas perceive in their myopic mind’s eye is the gigantic mushroom cloud of global catastrophe looming over planet earth. Gaia’s Garden of Eden irradiated into a sizzling cinder.
The irresponsible hype from the media has only been exacerbated by fumbling and ill-informed pronouncements from US and EU officials. For the past several days, the world at large has been treated to a This Is It! scenario that somehow misses its calamity-on-command cue.
Aren’t these government guys supposed to know what they’re talking about? Aren’t they supposed to be soothing us with safe-sounding words instead of scaring the bejesus out of everyone? Apparently not.
The Chicken Little nitwits who think they know all about the nuclear nightmare in Japan need to stop fueling the frenzy and grow a pair. The sky isn’t falling but their credibility sure is.
