What Exactly Do You Propose To Do About It?

Monique Chartier


It took a moment to grasp the misanthropic message of this bumper sticker, spotted in Cranston recently. When it fully registered, I was shocked. (Yes, that's a stork off on the right, carrying a "bundle".)

I assume the argument is that half the population would mean half as many mouths to feed, half the heat and electricity required, and so on. But the world would also have half as many productive workers, half as many Beethovens, Einsteins, Steve Jobs, Teslas, Fords. Imagine if we had twice as many computer programmers and medical researchers. We'd be living in a different world.

I think 75,000 Gillette Stadiums worth of people is plenty.

""One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country. Many of the Christian faith have said, well, that's OK; contraception is OK. It's not OK. It's a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.""

Every time he opens his mouth, more and more Americans think that the man is a nut-job .LOL

Be Well All

Thank you for keeping it real. The Dutch don't get it either.

It's all in what you think. Denial of climate change is the ultimate misanthropy.

"It's all in what you think. Denial of climate change is the ultimate misanthropy."

One could argue that "the ultimate misanthropy" is causing America to die by exponential borrowing coupled with exponential fuel and tax increases on working people to the benefit of the elite (government workers, trial lawyers and bailout winners) and parasites like illegal aliens and welfare mooches.

"causing America to die by exponential borrowing coupled with exponential fuel and tax increases on working people"

The big jerks ARE the middle class voters, who always vote for politicians who promise things and devise ways to avoid paying for them. They're behind the borrowing.

As for fuel taxes, or taxes in general putting pressure on your budget, it's minimal. Really. Heating AND auto gas make up 2.6% of my budget at today's prices. If you're anywhere near the middle class and running your budget so that 1 or 2% puts pressure on it, YOU are the one being fiscally irresponsible.

Oh that's right, I forgot about the God-given right for all Americans to live in single-unit dwellings and drive a combined 40,000 miles a year per family, regardless of fiscal realities.

Sorry, I was having a grumpy afternoon.

Ah, the thought process of the selfish, self-centered individual. I got mine, so time to close the door on anyone else...
