I see some similarities in these photos. Hiroshima 1945 is where dictatorships and religious extremism get you. Hiroshima Modern times is what you get when you have capitalistic ideals running the show.

Now if you flip the last paragraph and insert Detroit in place of Hiroshima then you get the idea. Liberal ideas have run the show there in Detroit for far too long.

The people of Hiroshima had already faced total destruction, so they were smart enough not to vote for a socialist. Detroit’s people had never encountered the consequences of bad decisions, so they spent decades pushing for the most “liberal” government their neighbors could afford, with the crowning achievement last November. Karma.

A number of those Detroit Today pics are from the Packard Plant that closed in 1956.

Detroit's been on the skids for 30 years.

If nothing else, the Japanese are a focused people.

I get your point though.

We beat the foreign enemies, but had no way of dealing with the domestic enemies. We still don’t. Witness the destruction they are causing.

Very good post, nonetheless. Thanks.

Why liberals won in Detroit. Pubbies should be using pictures of this everywhere to demonstrate what happens when liberal (marxist) policies are ascendant for protracted periods of time.

Thought experiment ( suggested episode for the Twilight Zone).

1) Imagine everyone in Hiroshima (population : 1.1 Million) today were teleported to Detroit.

2) Now imagine the same -— everyone in Detroit (population : 950,000) are teleported to Hiroshima.

What would happen 25 years later ?

I’d like Rod Serling to write a script and 30 minute show on that.

Not at all -- be my guest. I took a lot of those images from Google.

Moral of the story :

Liberals can nuke cities with more devastating effect than nuclear bombs. All it takes is to vote for them.

Well, Detroit would look quite nice in a whole lot less than 25 years. As for Hiroshima ... Japan forgave us once, more or less, but that was just over a couple of nukes. I doubt they would be so tolerant if we dumped a million kooks on them. It's sad, but it's the people who created that destruction in their own back yards.

THAT IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST MISTAKES THE CONSERVATIVES/REPUBLICANS HAVE ever MADE.

We have NEVER shown them in pics what they got with the DEMS...especially black people.

I got one link here :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JbGxIR8JTk

The caption says :

It is an open secret that the downtown of Detroit, Michigan is as empty as the residential districts that surround it.

On a walking tour of the city core one July 2008 Sunday, this is what I found.

From the images and videos I have seen of Tokyo, I would say the Japanese seem to have an aversion to waste like Detroit. Much of Detroit is a wasteland.

You can Youtube “Abandoned Detroit”
