Random thoughts about world events!

 OMG! What is going on with the world today?  People protesting at military funarals, gas prices sky rocketing to four and five dollars a gallon, earthquakes and tsunamuies in Japan?  I mean really? 

I mean first off, why in the world would someone protest at a MILITARY furnal?  If your child turns 18 years old and decides to join the Armed Forces then that is totally and completely THEIR choice.  They know what they are getting into as soon as they say, "Hey, I want to join the navy." or "I want to make a difference in the world, I am going to join the army."  They know the risks and they know what they are doing.  I really don't appericate people standing outside of a Military furnal protesting the fact their son or daughter was killed in war.  IT WAS THEIR CHOICE! They LOVED their country and died so YOU could have your freedom.  Why don't all of you ungrateful bunch of people GROW UP and act your age.  Our troops know what they got themselves into and are PROUD to do what they are doing.  I may not agree with some of things going on in this war, but I do SUPPORT OUT TROOPS and EVERYTHING they do!  I mean, really? 

And another thing?  What the hell is up with the gas prices all of a sudden?  I mean come on!  It's like all we do is go to work to pay bills and put gas in our vehicals.  Some people are not working right now and are getting layed offf and their hours are getting cut, we can't afford five dollars a gallon, but we pay it because we HAVE to go to work.  I just don't see the why they have to be so high.  I know its because america is paying more for the oil and blah, blah, blah but that really isn't no excuse.  It is becoming summer time and Americans are not going to be taking trips and driving ANY long distances because gas is so high.  If they lower the prices of gas then, I think, more people would travel.  But who knows, I just don't get it.

What in the world is happening in Japan?  They had a MASSIVE earthquake, which in turn triggered a HUGE Tsunami and messed up their nuclear plants which are by the way leaking radiation into the food, ocean and air and to top it all off they keep having all of these BIG 7.1 aftershocks from the earthquake.  If mothernature keeps this up, Japan is going to sink and be underwater.  My heart goes out to all of the victums in Japan and my thoughts and prayers are with them everyday.  I work for a Honda supplier company which is Japanesse owned and we have rasied  A LOT of money to send to Japan.  I just hope and pray that God helps them all out too. 

Sorry if my rambling and random thoughts offended anybody.  This just how I feel about some things going on in the world today!
