The Japanese are the hardest working people in the world and they now have nothing to live on.
Japans Elderly Crime Wave

I expect the same thing to happen in America soon.

"One of the saddest lessons of history is this: we're no longer interested in finding out the truth." - Carl Sagan
According to the Article you were too stupid or illiterate to read:
"Some 70 percent of the elderly crimes, according to a government white paper written in 2012, were acts of shoplifting by impoverished pensioners."
Don't work = Don't Eat
Jail = Free Food
Like you Wolfeye I believe America the elderly would be too weak. I believe they would just starve to death and die without the government's welfare.
If the proud people of Japan are stooping to petty crime to make ends meet, imagine what these spoiled, over-medicated, self-indulged Baby Boomers would do if they have to miss a meal? You may see them hooking and whoring, robbing and stealing, and killing for peanut butter and dog food.
Jonny Law: Where are you getting that I believe that? I don't figure that's untrue, but where are you getting it from? Also- how am I illiterate AND reading your post to orient a response to it? By the way: jail doesn't necessarily equal free food. It could just be starvation in a building. What are they going to do if they cut the food off? Escape? Maybe, but maybe not.
Rocky Top: Good point. I always heard about "putting food on the table" as some dire concept, but I don't remember any of them really skipping meals. Maybe working through lunch or putting dinner off until 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning, but never outright going without it. I don't remember it being a situational thing or a personal challenge. It might be that they heard so much about how everyone else in the world is an asshole & the "horrible" way they all constantly live, then got worried about it. Possibly as much as a status symbol as anything else- which is a bit severe, when you consider it. Food being as much or even more of an ego thing than a sustanence thing?
