Trouble is, you're fighting thousands of years of government and religous propaganda, when more peasants ment more production of food and goods to enrich the lord and more soldiers to take riches away from someone else, to enrich the lord.

Yup, many advanced nations are effectively paying people to have kids. C. got a full year maternity leave with full pay (topped up by her employer) for each of hers.

I think the US has the least amount of benefits in the advanced world?

How would one limit the number of kids as I'm sure we all saw the reaction and outcome of the Chinese one child policy?

I don't buy the "Fracking near communities' groundwater supplies" as I think the statement is deliberately inflammatory, how many places actually do that? I'm sure there may be cases where someone's well is close by but that person is probably being well paid for the risk?

What's with all the whining about killing Americans, are these guys enemy combatants? If so and they are killing Americans why would they have some sort of special exemptions? Of course I'm watching GPS again. What can I say we doubled up on the snowfall from the storm last night. }};-()
