    Any ever wondered what happened to all that radiation that supposedly last for thousands of years?

    Hiroshima, JAPAN today

    [​IMG]

    NOW LET'S LOOK AT DETROIT, MICHIGAN IN 1945

    [​IMG]

    AND DETROIT TODAY...

    [​IMG]

    Now lets' talk about nuclear explosions and government teats...

    What has caused more long term destruction -
    the A-bomb,
    or
    Government welfare programs created to buy the
    votes of those who want someone to take care of them?

    Japan does not have a welfare system.

    Work for it or do without.


    These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:

    1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

    2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

    3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

    4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

    5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

    Can you think of a reason for not sharing this? .........Neither could I.

    (From and e-mail I recently received for the second time. I thought it appropo to share in the forum.

    Generally speaking, the healthcare in Japan is not only provided free for every Japanese citizen, but also for expatriates and foreigners.

    Welfare as Japan Knows It: A Family Affair - New York Times

    Notice the date of this article...1996

    Excerpt:

    Welfare as Japan Knows It: A Family Affair
    By NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF
    Published: September 10, 1996

    Genially welcoming a visitor into his ''home,'' the piece of cardboard on which he sleeps in the Shinjuku train station here, Katsuo Kawagoe drew deeply on a cigarette and recalled the times he had applied for public assistance from the Government.

    ''They just said, 'What do you want?' '' he remembered. ''They were not helpful. The only way you can get aid is if you're over 65 or if you're really sick and taken to the hospital.''

    ''When I turn 65, I'll apply for welfare,'' Mr. Kawagoe, who is 53, added between racking, tubercular coughs. ''But until then I've got no chance if I'm healthy.''

    Japan has a welfare system that in some ways makes even the new, dismantled American system seem a model of generosity. Applicants in Japan are obliged to get help first from their families, and a poor person physically able to work is not eligible for help -- whether or not the person actually has a job.

    ....And, on August 7 (1964)....U.S. Congress Approves Gulf Of Tonkin Resolution

    Detroit surely did come-in "handy", after that!

    Detroit is the perfect example of what liberal dimocrat rule can accomplish. They've turned a once prosperous city into a huge slum, but continue to harp that with more money for this, that, and the other thing all will be swell again.

    We only venture into it for Lions, Tigers, or Red Wings games and get the hell out a.s.a.p. afterwards.

    Free? Please explain how it becomes "free". Does their health care come from the tooth fairy?

    And another article...this one much more recent...

    Welfare system not faring well | The Japan Times Online

    Excerpt:

    In spirit, Japan's public welfare system is closer to America's than it is to Europe's. Citizens do not have a right to be supported by the government. Some claim they do and as proof point to Article 25 of the Constitution, which states that all people have the right to "maintain the minimum standards of wholesome and cultured living." But Article 27 states that people have the right "and the obligation" to work. What this means in practice is that a person who applies for welfare must pass a rigorous screening process that can include personal disclosures, such as whether or not the applicant has access to support from a relative or even a lover. The applicant has to conform to certain notions of impoverishment. I've heard that in the 1960s and 70s, potential welfare recipients would hide "inessential" possessions like color TVs when a case worker visited.
