    Perhaps this setup would encourage more private educational funding.
    Now, you know better than to bring common sense and logic into a thread like this!

    When I went to college they offered a special program where you could design your own major if you knew what you wanted to do after college. I was interested in communications from broadcasting to marketing. I contacted an advertising executive, and with the help of my advisor tied radio, television, journalism, advertising, marketing, politics and believe it or not home economics into one study. This qualified me for entry level positions at a radio or TV station, newspapers, magazines, advertising agencies or reps, public relations firms, and more. After college I interviewed at 84 companies over four months. I was a wreck. I landed a trainee position at a major L. A. national advertising agency. The pay was $650 a month for the first six months. I could not cover rent, but fortunately had savings. They wanted me to struggle, and I did, but within two years I was over six digits. My broad general knowledge paid off, and the one course in home economics got me on a packaged food account.

    You see the dietitians in that home economics class hated big business and the processed food products. I listened to them, and was able to explain to agency management that experts do not think products like Hamburger Helper are good for people. Research was initiated to find out why, and how we could reach these experts by changing the ingredients in products. Later, Hamburger Helper came out in whole grain. It was a win for the agency, and me personally. I agree with you completely. Designing a college major should be encouraged.

    Let me dumb it down. You are a fake. You donated nothing significant to Somalia. You are an 'all talk' liberal. It is easy for you to vomit liberal platitudes at cocktail parties. You embarrass us practical liberals who are concerned about the well-being of our fellow AMERICAN CITIZENS. You allow the right to view liberals as 'fluff.' We'll take your vote, but that is where your participation in hard-ball politics ends.

    Case closed, you admit you are not on the American team? Then you are merely and irrelevant sheep. Step off.



    You just can't keep up. Bottom line, you sound like you are from a large, poor family that lives on welfare from my tax dollars. A simple "Thank you" would be enough.
    Ah, I see now that you are merely a troll who will get bored soon enough. It took a few posts and you had me going there for a while. Touche, sir. Touche.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    No there is no legal grounds to restrict procreation.

    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
    We're essentially at replacement, not really a worry.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    This will be a very typical solution in the United States politicians.

    We will wait until Malibu looks like Bombay, and POTUS will say, "We must act immediately to deal with our overpopulation problem here in Republic Del Norte."

    According to a professor at the University of New Mexico this map is inevitable by 2080.
    Wake up America this is a goal of La Raza, and they are doing this openly.

    If you think that we need to restrict "overpopulation" maybe we should quit giving tax breaks for the number of kids a family has first.

    I am with you all the way.

    It wouldn't hurt to put more teeth into protecting our culture.

    Today, you can't tell a photo of Los Angeles from a photo of Mexico City. A slum is a slum is a slum.

    Re: Population Control

    Humanity could live in greater numbers than now and in better conditions, but the solutions and innovations needed to do so are being wilfully oppressed by the ruling class in order to sustain their need to dominate and control others.

    As such, I do not believe that numbers much larger than now are sustainable, given the ecological burden. With non-technological human genius, we could really do a lot of good on this planet. But our focus right now is totally corrupt and degenerated, and is money based only.

    Re: Population Control

    I can't believe in 2011 anyone would even need to debate the question of overpopulation. Intellectuals and scientists proved overpopulation was a serious problem decades ago. Overpopulation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "Overpopulation is a condition where an organism's numbers exceed the carrying capacity of its habitat. The term often refers to the relationship between the human population and its environment, the Earth. Steve Jones, head of the biology department at University College London, has said, "Humans are 10,000 times more common than we should be, according to the rules of the animal kingdom, and we have agriculture to thank for that. Without farming, the world population would probably have reached half a million by now." The world’s population has significantly increased in the last 50 years, mainly due to medical advancements and substantial increases in agricultural productivity."
