On March 11th Japan was hit by a devastating three punch combination. They were hit by the 5th largest Earth Quake in recorded history a 9.0 which was followed by a devastating Tsunami with waves up to 30 feet high. If that is not bad enough, now they are dealing with a partial meltdown on 2 nuclear reactors. This is the very latest Information on the crisis going on in Japan as of 12:30 eastern.
***Plus a bonus for those who are down from all the bad new out of Japan. Who better then Michele Bachmann to lift our spirits and put a smile on our faces. You can always count on Michele Bachmann to make you feel better when you listen to her and realize if she can do it ANYONE CAN. I also wrote a post a while ago with the Greatest Michele Bachmann Quotes by now she has a lot more I need to add.
