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





Hiroshima, JAPAN today



NOW LET'S LOOK AT DETROIT, MICHIGAN IN 1945



AND DETROIT TODAY...



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.

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.

Japan does have social welfare. And the government of Japan pays for 70% of each citizen's health care costs.

Detroit is one city in the US and its problems cannot be tied to a program that the entire country also shares.

Thread fail.

On the news last week i heard that the Detroit police were saying to come to Detroit AT YOUR OWN RISK. I've had to go a few times, and it's pretty scary!

Society developed the systems that led to such a large population and such large scale productivity. That changed society. It is too late to go back to a 'good 'ol days' period. The thinking from that time applies no more. Sure, it would be great if everyone played John Wayne in a Ford movie and ruggedly individualized.

I certainly try to provide for myself and learned to work, save, build a business, employ people and live a relatively self-sufficient life. I have never knowingly taken anything from any government that I had not already paid more than enough into. I do not think myself extraordinary, exemplary or unique. It is more or less what I think 'normal'.

Yet, the world today cannot and does not function in the manner I learned. The same opportunities are not there, the capacity for further growth is not there. Workers are not just going to get absorbed into income producing employment.

And at the same time, there is enough for everyone. There is no penury of essentials. People are suffering as a result of peoples inabilities to adapt to problems people created. The 'crisis' isn't tsunamis, earth quakes, hurricanes, volcanoes or asteroids. Nothing was destroyed except a house of cards, a false faith in a god of excess and lucre.

We have to re-invent things. We have to better understand ourselves, our minds, how we function as the unique event that we are in the universe. We have to discover what is genuinely important, what all value comes from.

The problem is not that many want enough to exist. The problem is more associated with a desire for more than is possible by a delusional minority.

So, basically, America should model itself after other countries. I seeeeeee...

Geez...did you omit the PISTONS purposely. You do know that the MAYOR OF DETROIT is former Detroit Piston star...DAVE BING. That ought to tell us something about why that city looks worse that Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Good God.
