Ask a question- get answers

It just dawned on someone in the place where Great Briton used to be that we're not hearing about looting in Japan.

This is quite unusual among human cultures, and it’s unlikely it would be the case in Britain. During the 2007 floods in the West Country abandoned cars were broken into and free packs of bottled water were stolen. There was looting in Chile after the earthquake last year – so much so that troops were sent in; in New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina saw looting on a shocking scale.

He's surprised that a conservative culture that isn't inundated by Balkanized illegal aliens awash with a Liberal entitlement mentality would actually respect each other.

He's getting a lot of answers.

I bet he'd be surprised to know that here in gun and bible clinging flyover country would act pretty much the same- because were not immersed in the Liberal gimme attitude we've been seeing in Wisconsin. Including the ones we'd hope would be the ones protecting us.


  1. Yes, it is all in how we were raised.

  2. The floods of eastern Iowa in '08 had some isolated looting or scavenging. But those were very few reports.

    It was the regular citizens that were throwing the sandbags while those on "public assistance" sat on their ass-ends to watch the show.

    Brock's right - it's how one was raised.
