I’m researching the consequences of nuclear war for the apocalyptic novel I’m writing. The book is called White Winter, Black Night – it will be published by Simon & Schuster in 2014…
While doing said research, I came across this badass website where you can select a city, state, or get this, an address to nuke.
Yep, pick a destination, press “click here to detonate,” and you can see what kind of damage you can do.
I nuked a couple of ex-girlfriends’ homes, but for the most part I dropped my nukes on a whole lot of cities and states.
“Among them” is really not the best way to describe my nuclear attack targets — “them” would be more accurate, as the list above was the list. No, it was not my intention to spend so much time nuking these completely random, have-nothing-to-do-with-how-they-treat-people-of-color states, but I hit a writer’s block and the website was so much fun.
I hesitated to nuke Texas, one of the great loves of my life lives there, Donna, as does my boys Shane and Damon and my girl Amy, but since it was a completely random choice, I had no choice when nuking the state. It had NOTHING to do with the governor of the state owning a ranch named “Niggerhead” — nope, nothing whatsoever to do with that.
OK, I did nuke Arizona 15 times, and yes, that was on purpose. Why? Because it’s fucking racist-ass Arizona. Guess what? It wasn’t just 15 times; it was more, much more. How much more? I don’t know, I fucking lost count after 200.
Damn it Jim, I’m an artist, not a mathematician!
Nuking these places got me wondering; just how easy would it be to get a hold of an atomic bomb? That, most likely, would be a wee bit difficult. Then I started thinking, how hard could it be to build an atomic bomb? The plans are on the Internet, so just how hard could it be?
Well for me, hard.
Even if I could get my hands on the uranium and plutonium, and God knows what else I would need, I have trouble putting together an IKEA bookcase. So how the fuck could I build an atomic bomb?
The answer is I couldn’t.
With that in mind, I started wondering what the fuck kind of bullshit the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre is talking when he steadfastly refuses to even consider background checks before you buy a gun.
His argument is that criminals won’t submit to a background check and instead get their guns off the black market.
This is the argument?
THIS is the reason for NO background checks before you buy a GUN?
I’m FROM the fucking hood and I knew how to get a gun, so there is some truth to what he is saying.
BUT…I moved out of the hood and most of my hood contacts are either dead or in jail, so if I wanted to buy a gun off the black market, I’d be fucking out of luck because I no longer run with that crowd.
Criminals are NOT the motherfuckers shooting up fucking schools. Most of the shooters BECOME criminals AFTER they shoot up the fucking school, but before they kill 20 kids, they are just sick motherfuckers living a simple, well-off life.
If it was harder to get a gun, it’s fair to say many, if not all of the recent school shootings, would NOT have happened.
Anyone who thinks some upper middle class white kid can just go buy a gun off the street is just as stupid as stupid can be.
You think it’s easy to just walk out your door and buy a gun off the “black market”? If you do, then you are already a criminal with years of criminal activity and contacts at your disposal.
If you are some upper middle class white boy and you think you can just roll into the hood, flash some money, and buy a gat, there’s a term you will be forever known as…
There is NO way somebody can just “buy a gun” off the black market if they don’t have deep, and I mean DEEP, ties to the underworld already.
Wayne LaPierre and the NRA leadership are full of fucking shit. I’m FROM the hood and I know how things work. I’m also been a member of the NRA for years, and I know how that works also.
How the fuck is a background check an affront to the 2nd amendment is beyond me.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
That, was the reason I joined the NRA.
THIS is what the NRA seems to think the 2nd Amendment states:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people, regardless if they are sick motherfuckers, to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed even if they want to shoot up kids in schools…that’s cool.
That’s why I’m leaving.
