Remembering Pearl Harbor

75 years has not erased the horror that was the bombing of Pearl Harbor.  The Japs had run roughshod over China and throughout the Pacific for years.  They decided to knock out the U.S. Pacific Fleet using tactics that had worked on the Royal Navy and against Russia nearly forty years earlier.  The rest is the Day of Infamy.  Take a moment to remember the souls of those who died that day and those who fought back.  JJ took the liberty of posting videos of that fateful attack. 

This video is actual color footage of the raid.

Here is video from the Jap side:

But some of the ships arose from the dead.  Watch the refloating of the Nevada:

For real you have to cal them Japs KF? Bet you didn't call them that when they built Nissan.

Kingfish said...

The people who bombed pearl Harbor? Japs.

The people who built Nissan? Japanese. Just like the the Krauts in WWII, the Germans today.

Don't like it? Go to hell. Preferably in a time where Bataan never ends for you.

I have to side with KF! My dad fought in the Pacific in the Navy on a Tin Can. Survived Battle of Letye Gulf and Okinawa. All sailors referred to them as Japs. Datsun is the predecessor of Nissan. Datsun manufactured the engines for the Kamikaze planes.

Japs They Were (and that's being kind).. said...

The pansy-ass Obama administration has come out today and told vets (and the rest of America) that we need to 'get over it', regarding the Jap attack.

The Japs were a savage, racist, barbaric breed.

Since August 1945 they've been civilized human beings. Two nuclear warheads pacified them as a race.

There's a lesson for Islam in there someplace....

Hypo for you KF: A nissan executive who ordered the plant to be built in Ms. also was a guard on the Bataan death march. Is he a Jap or Japanese. I don't disagree with you I'm just curious as to what you think.

12:33, don't you think and agree that anybody can change, both in mind and in heart.

Hell, Donald Trump used to be a Democrat, and n..... oh well, never mind.

While driving out Lakeland today I noticed that at least half of the American Flags were not at half mast. On my way back, I stopped at 18 businesses to remind them that it should be lowered to half mast. Most were appreciative, if not a little embarrassed. A few, though, were jerks. As a disabled combat vet, the disregard and disrespect saddens me. No more stops for breakfast at the McDonalds at Lakeland/Ridgewood for me!

I have to admit: my eyes bugged out when I opened this and saw the word J*ps in the opening sentence. Just a few days ago my son used that term and I corrected him.

Japs were Japs. What the fuck is the big deal. Do you assholes need a safe space to consider the reality of Pearl Harbor? If your 'eyes bugged' when you saw the word japs, then screw you, bug-eyes!

If you have a reference for this bullshit I will kiss your liberal ass: "A nissan executive who ordered the plant to be built in Ms. also was a guard on the Bataan death march."

You farking fool....if he was giving orders at Bataan he is 92 years old, not building cars.

6:35 you are the damn fool if you don't word what the word hypo means. I hope you aren't one of the esteemed Jackson attorneys on this website

This is probably why i'm in Purgatory on Nextdoor said...

Hypo, you mean that thing Bones did to sick/injured Starfleet personnel, or were you trying to say "hypothetical"? Here's an "abreve" for ya...NIPS, or the singular Nip. I was fortunate enough to have a set of National Geographic magazines in the school library, dating from the 1940's. They were a little more plain spoken then, and I think a little more honest about the threat we faced. BTW: it was short for Nipponese.

National Geographic predicted WW2? Funny never heard that one.

A snack food company in Chicago named Japps Foods (for the company founder) changed their name and eponymous potato chip brand to Jays Foods shortly after Pearl Harbor to avoid any negative associations with the name.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
