I love it every time I see one of these and there are blatant spelling errors in them. Oh for the days of high brow humour.

Japan has a very low crime rate. There were a couple of crimes committed there after the disaster though. Someone stole like Y40 million from a broken vault and a guy stole a relief donation box.

Take the all too obvious local proliferation of theft out of the comparison of the two natural disaster scenarios and you still have a huge difference between local reaction/behavior of the two.

I've yet to have seen Japanese standing in the streets demanding their "rights to assistance", attacking and shooting at aid workers, expecting to have everything: money, food, clothing, and housing handed to them on a platter while at the same time turning down offers for gainful employment.

This is exactly what DID happen in post Katrina New Orleans though I doubt any such similar events will be taking place in Japan which points out a huge disparity between an entitlement driven mindset versus the can-do one exhibited in Japan.

As an aside to this conversation, even the relocated Katrina survivors (I REFUSE to call them VICTIMS!) quickly spread their own specialness as nearly every community who took them in saw increases to their crime rate almost immediately. Locally, the 1st batch of such survivors relocated here spawned rapes and theft in short order .... upon the very people who took them in hot smiley

You can use all the PC bullshit you want and spread it anyway you prefer but truth is still truth no matter how you try to doll it up. The fact is that this era of entitlement BS can be laid straight at the feet of the late democratic President Lyndon Johnson for his "Great Society" crap that set into motion complete generations of welfare entitlement driven drains on what was once a Great Society here in the US.

Denying the reality and point of what this has gotten us won't change the results, no matter how vociferously one attempts to downplay the obvious (*butt*)

If you are addressing me, I am not denying anything. I merely pointed out a couple of interesting facts.

Just making my own observations, not aimed at anyone grinning
