Hiroshima and Detroit Comparisons After 67 Years

Part of an email forwarded to me by a friend. "What happened to the radiation that was to last 'thousands of years'" View the pictorial record of these two cities.

What a shame.


Is there more than a little truth to this?

67 years later!

What happened to the radiation that lasts thousands of years?

Hiroshima 1945

We all know that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed in August 1945 after the explosion of atomic bombs.

However, we know little about the progress made by the people of that land  during the past 67 years.

Hiroshima 67 years after the nuclear bomb attack:

Detroit 67 years after the Hiroshima nuclear bomb attack:

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.

Good article, advice and photos.
1000's of years became 67 in reality!
The difference is Hiroshima didn't suffer at the hands of the Black Undertow that Detroit has.
