I can’t believe that it is over 70 years since the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. I can’t believe that this great country known as the United States of America would drop a very dangerous bomb on that city. Sometimes, I can’t help but wonder if this event happened when there wasn’t a war going on.

I can’t help but feel sorry for those who had been hit by a bomb and lost everything, such as families, friends, homes, and the rest of their lives. The bombing of Hiroshima is one of those things I will never be able to forgive this particular country of doing.

That is all.

It’s July 4, and I hope that you’re enjoying yourselves.

Which is ironic because freedom is never really free; someone has to pay for it.

But we’re not free now due to our selfish perverse love of everything that goes against what God has planned for us (and I’ll get back to you on that).

Before I go any further, let’s celebrate the 239th anniversary of this country’s founding. (Don’t blow yourselves up and leave the fireworks to the professionals)

After such a tumultuous month, I need a break. Please direct all your problems to my Tumblr page, iamjacquelrassenworth.tumblr.com or my Facebook page, I am Jacquel Rassenworth.

I’ll be back with some Stale Grapes News.

Stale Grapes Network presents Black Women and the Right to Vote

Hello, my fellow bloggers. Your wonderful friend Maddy is back and I have a story for you all. You will be shocked by this one, so hold onto your seats.

When black men were given the right to vote in the 1860s, black women were excluded. Sadly though, black women did not have the same basic rights, just as white women weren’t given the same basic rights.

In those days a woman’s job ways to keep the house and mind the children. Very few women were able to seek work outside the house. But when the 1850s occurred and women began the campaign for the right to vote, black women formed groups and they too campaigned for their right to vote. After all, it did seem unfair that black men were allowed to vote and black women were excluded.

Black women did not have it easy, seeing as most of the suffragettes were racist against them and were doing whatever it took to get them to not vote, either by intimidation or outright banning all meetings between black women.

In the year 1920, however, women were finally given the right to vote but yet black women would have to continue the fight for the right to vote until the civil rights movement of the 1960’s, in which all United States citizens were given the right to vote.

So now you know. Tomorrow’s blog post will deal with a shocking tragedy and the fallout that resulted from said tragedy.

Jacquel Rassenworth on The Seventh Son

You know something’s about to be good when it’s titled seventh. But thankfully, it doesn’t place with emphasis on “the seventh son of a seventh son” which is a popular trope in fantasy.

Because yes this movie is a fantasy.

When evil rears its ugly head and humanity is about to meet its end, only one can put an end to that evil or else humanity will be gone forever.

I would suggest that you see this movie now and avoid the SpongeBob movie like the plague.

Hello, and welcome to yet another blog post from the Stale Grapes News. Today’s topic is dedicated Pearl Harbor, which was attacked on December 7, 1941, which happened 73 years ago today.

First, a bit of history:

It was during World War II when half the world was fighting against the evils of Nazi Germany. The United States was supporting Britain and France against Germany. But the Germans were not very happy about that, and so were the Japanese. Japan and China were already at war, and Italy supported Germany.

So how did Pearl Harbor happen?

Pearl Harbor was located in Hawaii, and it was a Naval base. But Japan flew its planes over the island and bombed it. Many Sailors and on that island were killed, and the next day, President Franklin Roosevelt declared war Japan. In response, Germany and Italy declared war on the United States, as did Japan.

And the rest, they say, was history.

So, should Pearl Harbor still be a thing?

Yes, it should, as it was one of the reasons why the United States was in World War II.

In conclusion, do YOU think that Pearl Harbor should still be a thing? Please let me know in the comments.

Stale Grapes Network Presents “Why is Thanksgiving Still a Thing?”

Happy Thanksgiving to all those who are American citizens!

Or is it?

Well, I say that we need to take a step back and check our history because I’m confused here:

In 1620, a group of persecuted people decided to cut and run instead of compromising their ways with England. They boarded the Mayflower and ended up not in Virginia, but in a completely different place. Those people suffered and many died because they were not prepared to survive living in their new home.

Yeah, life was fricking rough back in the day.

The next year, an Indian named Samoset found the people wandering around, hopelessly lost. He set them up with his friend Squanto, who taught them how to grow food, build houses and how to survive life in their harsh new environment.

Under Squanto’s guidance, the Pilgrims (the Indians’ code name for the lost Englishmen) thrived, but they realized that they were never going to get to Virginia. But that’s ok, since they had found a better home to live in and no one told them want to do.

Hence, thanksgiving feast.

And the rest was history.

And how do I know this story? Because my mom’s grandpa came from a Pilgrim and one of the Indians from Plymouth, and he still lives there. He’s the one who told me the story that I’m telling you now.

So you know.

With that being in mind, should Thanksgiving still be a thing? Yes, because if it weren’t for the Indians, the Pilgrims would have all died out ages ago. Should we celebrate it? Yes, we should. Is football a part of Thanksgiving? Yes it is.

Now you know.

Stale Grapes News Post #5

Hello, and once again welcome to another segment of the Stale Grapes News Network, the site where fake news blog posts could be real news that is being hidden by today’s mainstream media. Now for some more fake news, courtesy of me:

Movie Review: “World of Shadow” Isn’t Worth Watching Unless You are a fan of Science Fiction

[Hayward, Missouri] The movie “World of Shadow” opened in United States theaters on August 27 , 2014 to rave reviews. Yet in the city of Hayward, Missouri, the movie has gotten some very dismal reviews, ranging from “this movie sucks” to “why would you want to waste your money on this crap”. The movie, which is based on the book “Island’s Fate” by Y. S. Barrera, centers on the character Rowan Hardett as he explores the country of Urmany and inadvertently gets involved with the intrigues of the court of King Villequin the Corrupt.

“It’s not right to subject our citizens to this kind of filth,” says local movie blogger Kassia Moss. “In fact, I think it would have been better had the movie been released on DVD.  The stuff that is in this film is mainly for those who like science fiction and fantasy, not people like us who want more comedy and action and less family-friendly movies.”

James Balderson, the director of the movie in question, could not be reached in time for comment.


Amanda Holston Apologizes for Wearing an anti-Christian shirt on local talk show

[Fayetteville, Washington] – Actress Amanda Holston of the hit TV show “Holiday City” was criticized by the National Association of Christians for wearing anti-Christian charge while on the local talk show with host Karl Tirrell. A person watching a shelf notice the offending clothing and notified the association, who is currently calling for Miss Halston to apologize for wearing the shirt in question, claiming that the shirt has offendid over 1.8 million people living in the area. 

“That shirt is sad and disgusting,” says Edna Sneed, who is a parishioner of Ridgeland Baptist Church. “It is very sad when a celebrity chooses to wear something that offends God and the people who follow Him. I surely hope that she issues an apology and repents this terrible sin.”

Miss Halston herself has issued an apology on her Facebook profile, which reads, “I am sorry if I have offendid you with my choice of clothing. I had no idea that this shirt would upset you and I am sorry for wearing it.”  Yet, the National Association of Christians does not believe that her apology is enough, and they are asking Pinnacle Productions to suspend her for the next six months without pay. Ted McKinney, the CEO of Pinnacle Productions (distributor of Holiday City), has not yet commented on the story.

It’s now the month of July and as such, I’m getting ready for two important things: my birthday and the day I leave for college.

That’s all.

Anyway, with that being said, I’ll quit talking before I start rambling, since I’m trying to kick that habit before it ruins my college essays.

Now you know.
