A Date Which Will Live in Infamy

"...a date which will live in infamy..."

It's December 7th today and American citizens around the nation will be marking the 66th anniversary of the surprise attack on the U.S. Navy Pacific Fleet in Honolulu, Hawaii. In the almost two years preceeding this attack, many Americans worried that the war in Europe would, like a huge magnet, draw them into another horrible conflict in Europe as The Great War had thirty years earlier. Instead, an enemy that wasn't realized until it was too late pulled the United States into war did so through another avenue.

Obviously, I wasn't alive then to witness it, but I can some what understand the almost instant numbness that overcame me on the morning of September 11, 2001. As I watched 9/11 unfold on live television, I think that many who witnessed the Japanese planes swooping down into Pearl Harbor might have had the same thoughts running through their heads: What!? How could this be happening!?!

You've Got to be Joking

Whenever my wife and I are watching television, I'll sometimes point to the TV if there's an aircraft on the screen and remind her that I can fly one of those; it's an inside joke from when I worked on flight simulators - when nothing was broke and I had time on my hands, I'd 'play around' with the simulator....I got pretty good at landing an S-3A Viking on a carrier flight deck.

And of course, she knows that I'm joking around.

However, here is an asshat that went a little too far.

About Me

Who is Mikey?
Mikey playing with digital camera

Mikey is a forty-something U.S. Navy veteran that is currently taking a break from being a full-time student at UC San Diego studying electrical engineering.

He's also a husband, a father, a former Independent/Democrat and is currently dealing with dialysis and getting on the national kidney transplant list.

The words written here are his opinions and his observations on the stupid things in life. If you do not like them or do not agree with them: tough squishies. In America, you're entitled to Freedom of Speech not Freedom to Not Be Offended.

Help Mikey by not being part of the problem and instead, be part of the solution so that he doesn't have to comment on your sorry actions.
