99. Not at all familiar with the seizure of assets from US citizens of Japanese descent, are you?

http://www.fear.org/RMillerJ-A.html

Yes, we took it, stole it, sold it, redistributed it to white US citizens who had not taken such good care of their property, and if the Japanese-Americans complained, they were threatened with prison. Since they were already in concentration camps, that threat sounded credible to them.

And we most certainly never compensated Native Americans for everything we simply took at gunpoint from them, either.

So why so squeamish about seizing assets from corporations, who are not even flesh and blood, have no feelings, and suffer no physical nor mental privations?

THIS is what being an American is all about!
