1. I notice that the "Births" counter is running up faster than the "Deaths" counter.
That can't be good.

Planet can't take that forever.

2. The Physics of it all
Edited on Sun Jan-24-10 11:45 PM by StClone
The Righties have no fear of the Global Population brewing along like a batch of yeast in a keg of apple jack. But, the physics of such endless growth and resulting human masses is inescapable to you and me.

Same thing as Global Warming and the resulting climate change. The sheer physics of it are obvious and most likely disastrous for us and our children's children. Righties again see no problem.

When the SCOTUS lead by Righties rule that Corporations have all the rights of a person and none of the responsibilities the Physics of that are obvious: Non-living Corps will enslave living people.

Righties however see no problem with the unprovable God as having an affect on the Physics of it all though. Now how are we to survive with such people?

4. Let's remove the child tax credit
That would raise taxes and remove the incentive to have children.
