    Who's "they"?

    We don't need more schools, we need better teachers and a better methodology. We don't need welfare, we need more jobs.


    Get it yet?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Is there a need for population control? If not, what evidence do you have that there is not? Will there be a need in the near future?

    If so to what degree? I.E. How many children should be allowed? Should control be by economic status or equal to all families?

    I want to get a sense of where people are on this topic
    Can't believe so many folks are voting yes. My answer is no. At least not yet.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I voted yes, but that is basically what I thought. Yes but not now, China on the other hand probably needs it.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    it's a vicious cycle and libs like you are too weak to ever break it.

    step 1. mommy and daddy are worthless lazy POS

    step 2. they have a bunch of kids

    step 3. libs squeal "think of the children"

    step 4. we pay more taxes to take care of these kids

    step 5. mommy and daddy get to continue being worthless, lazy POS

    step 6. kids grow up to be worthless, lazy POS just like mommy and daddy

    step 7. we get to pay even more taxes to support all the kids that they will have.


    Better that some should suffer now, than all suffer later
    That's right, don't abort them! Let em live. But once they're out of the womb, **** 'em.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

I personally don't care what you do with your free time, but you're a hypocrite for whining about the children and not doing anything personally about it. That's called being hypocritical. If you want to re-affirm it again, you certainly can do it and I'm glad to expose it from you over and over.

    Go ahead... you were going to say something....

    The high unemployment rate isn't caused by excessive population in this country. It's caused by long-term structural problems with our economy.

    China is doing just fine and look at their population.
