Wow! I had no idea that women could create food and clean water simply by having sex! We should totally harness them as a natural resource!
Ok my numbers were more than a bit off.
This is the raw data, have to calculate percentages yourself. I came up with 43% born to families making under $35k. 57% born to families over that. I guess the other article I was quoting was way off...
It doesn't work like that. If the US depopulated itself by choice, other groups would turn it into an entirely different country simply by immigrating here. Look at what's happening to Italy and France right now. In 20 years Italy will be African and France will be part of the IS caliphate. Demographics are everything.
Those who choose not to have children become an evolutionary and cultural dead-end. That's a scientific fact for you.
If you disbelieve me, just ask a Shaker. Oh wait, there aren't any of those around anymore.
This is bad and I'm not terribly proud of myself but...
One time I was on vacation in a foreign asian country and met a couple of Japanese girls. One was pretty cute and I felt confident. Our communication wasn't great, but I invited her to some meals and took we dancing. She told me she's had a boyfriend for 9 years, but never had sex.
I fixed that little issue for her. Japanese guys must have zero game.
Last year only 31% of the kids were born to families above $31,000 annual income.
The problem is systemic poverty built into the economy. Business depends on mass amounts of low wage workers to build profits for the 1%.
Which is why the elites work so hard to kill off any potential third parties. They already own all the mainstream media, so they just get their sock puppet newscasters to ridicule the third party and/or ignore it until it loses steam.
Clearly he's indicating that he's serious about winning the nomination for the GOP ticket...
All I know for sure is that heroin has made a HUGE comeback since we invaded and stabilized Afghanistan. It's so cheap, kids feel silly for NOT being on it!
I talked to a bounty hunter and he said the most common way of locating someone was by their use of store rewards cards.
If u dare to google an item you may wish to purchase in the future, you'll see that exact item on random banner ads on random webpages for about two months.
How about fixing the "quote" function for OS devices?
What a complete nothing of a study/article! "People are dying from gun violence." Is this news? The only thing that appeared even vaguely like a suggestion was to deny felons the right to own guns, and that's already the case nationwide. These doctors in all their wisdom plead for someone to do something! Peace on Earth now!
Um, right, we will get right on that. Why didn't anyone think of this before now?
Hydrocabron, why don't you limit your proposed legislation to the state where you reside? It's easy to make harsh rules when they don't apply to you. The rest of us who actually live in California would rather see some green things around.
Quick! Give all your money to an environmental law firm! Now!
NASA is just about defunct as a space exploration agency. The Chinese are surpassing us now, and will have achieved much more in ten to twenty years. The first lunar colony will be chinese.
The Mars One plan is the best I've seen, but honestly it seems more like a marketing gimmick than a real plan for a Mars colony. I'll believe it when I see some actual progress. Right now on their website I don't even see a science based PLAN to get people there. Just a plan for marketing the hype to raise donation dollars.
We got like 7 billion humans here, many of whom would take any chance to go to space or the moon. We don't because nasa is a bloated bureaucracy more intent on avoiding the public eye (with accidents), than capturing the human spirit with exploration.
What do REITs care about the weather? And of course they're buying with cash! It's only wage slaves who have to finance things.
Because "Mad Max" style civilization isn't considered optimal.
For a liberal, sbh seems to use the "n" word on a regular basis. When did that start being okay?
People can't afford houses if they don't have decent paying jobs. Instead, the true model of home ownership has already been unveiled. The REIT, where investors can rent to wage earners forever, is the future of American homeownership.
As for saroya's question, I believe you overlooked the "or" after "natural born citizen." That's all it takes, that first part. The second more convoluted part was to create an exception for people living at the time of the Constitution's adoption, of which none could qualify for the first part since the United states did not exist until 13 years before.
The DEFINITION of that first part, which is the only way to qualify for being a POTUS, is what's at stake. Based on interpretation of law, and the term as it was used by the framers, even if Obama was born in Kenya he would still qualify because his mother was a natural born citizen. Cruz's mother was also a natural born citizen, so he qualifies as well.
I think he would be terrible for the country and definitely would not vote for him, but he qualifies.
Natural resources, great weather, and a rising economy due to very competitive salary growth compared to the rest of the country helped. I do believe that when business shares the wealthier more fairly with its workers, they have more to spend and the economy is the winner. This is the tide that "lifts all ships."
This is a quote from the NPR article about the subject of defining "natural born." I believe it confirms the definition in favor of someone like Cruz.
"Both confirm that the original meaning of the phrase 'natural born Citizen' includes persons born abroad who are citizens from birth based on the citizenship of a parent. As to the British practice, laws in force in the 1700s recognized that children born outside of the British Empire to subjects of the Crown were subjects themselves and explicitly used 'natural born' to encompass such children. These statutes provided that children born abroad to subjects of the British Empire were 'natural-born Subjects ... to all Intents, Constructions, and Purposes whatsoever.'
"The Framers, of course, would have been intimately familiar with these statutes and the way they used terms like 'natural born,' since the statutes were binding law in the colonies before the Revolutionary War. They were also well documented in Blackstone's Commentaries, a text widely circulated and read by the Framers and routinely invoked in interpreting the Constitution."
The Earth is ours to share with our fellow humans and other creatures. But sharing doesn't come naturally to us, so we must "own" things to be assured of their proper care and maintenance. Nobody ever washed a rental car...
