Quote of the Day

MORGAN FREEMAN ON GOD, SATAN, AND HOW THE HUMAN RACE HAS ‘BECOME A PARASITE’

But I feel we’ve become a parasite on this planet. That’s like saying you don’t believe in God, but yes, if this population keeps growing, we’ll just keep devouring the planet, and I don’t think it’s going to stand for that very long.

I have often thought that humans and locusts treat the planet similarly and that both will share the same ultimate fate. In other words, "be fruitful and multiply" is a seriously f%^ked up long-term strategy. Of course, some free range thinkers may disagree.

Couple raising TEN children in 'dirty' tents on a garbage dump, ban them from school and threaten concerned neighbors with guns. Their defense? It's all part of the trendy 'free range' parenting fad

'Free range' children have absolute independence from infancy

Counting the current pregnancy, that's 11 more people who will someday help fund my Social Security. Right? Hey, I'm entitled to my crazy misguided hopes and dreams just as much as the next person, lol. Sigh.

Forehead. Desk. Whack. Whack. Whack.

Let's hope we're not 20 years behind Japan in your chart!

Put another way, the fertility rate is very low in the USA right now. In 20 years we may be missing some people.

No gap in 20 years. We are importing, and Hillary and Jeb are planning to import, tens of million more Mexicans and Muslims.

Not to worry, SS will be solvent.

Joseph Constable,

That's a relief! Whew!

And let's not forget the Chinese! We could double our population with a few hundred million of those and they'd still have more people than us! Share the population wealth I say! ;)

Sigh.
