Strategist's answer covers this quite well. Japanese people are particularly affected by how their media presents things even compared to people from other countries.

>>When I went back there a few years later and again recently, all the sushi chefs were Mexican, but still said "arigato" when you left.

I just hope corporations would pay their fair share. Many get enormous benefits from the US government (on the American taxpayers' dime). Read *The Conservative Nanny State: How the Wealthy Use the Government to Stay Rich and Get Richer* by Dean Baker and learn...

Can we reduce corporate welfare to these corporations then? Patent enforcements in the US courts, protection overseas using the US military and aid given to countries by the US which will buy said corporations products/ services? Hmmm...

@Fortwayne,

You could be right. Could you give me a few specific articles?

Thanks. Wikipedia has very good articles on chemistry, astronomy and for animals / plants. Also many good articles for university teams in basketball and football.

And 2% of $500,000 is still a lot of money.

"Yup but to be clear this is crony capitalism, ie not a free market."

True and sad that more Americans don't see this. Look at all the praise going out there for Romney as a wonderful wealth creating capitalist. If you are for some degree of government "socialism" you should be disappointed since there is more and more of an extreme inequality of wealth here and if you are purely free market you should be enraged that the economic playing field is so uneven and there are distortions leading to more wealth being siphoned up to the top (and anything in between). Few are benefitting from this and most Americans are divided....
