President Obama's "science czar," Paul Holdren, once floated the idea of forced abortions, "compulsory sterilization," and the creation of a "Planetary Regime" that would oversee human population levels and control all natural resources as a means of protecting the planet -- controversial ideas his critics say should have been brought up in his Senate confirmation hearings.

Holdren, who has degrees from MIT and Stanford and headed a science policy program at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government for the past 13 years, won the unanimous approval of the Senate as the president's chief science adviser.

Actually I know quite a few people that shouldn't be allowed to have children...anymore.

But of course "they" aren't talking about sterilizing the crack addict with 7 kids......Or the pro basketball player with 12 kids.

Hmmm.... “”Planetary Regime” that would oversee human population levels and control all natural resources as a means of protecting the planet...

Sounds like Al Gore!

Their “allegiances” are becoming more obvious, less hidden, as they gain the power to implement their agenda.

National Socialist Democrats pushing EUGENICS... This should surprise me, but it doesn’t.

of course THIER Grandmother will be EXEMPT from all of this, because THEY are just so important, a more-equal-than-you-are pig, so to say.

Japan has one of the highest population densities on Earth, and is near the top of life expectancy. Facts show the opposite of this textbook diatribe. This ‘too many people’ crap has been refuted by facts for decades and they keep getting away with the leftist lie.

What about forced sterilization.?? Anyone can have a mistake but after two children to a woman with no husband,shouldn't that be enough?? Letting them have litters just to get an increase in welfare doesn't seem fair to me..

“too many people”

And just another bit of proof that the left works for him.

I'd say this is unbelievable, but it's exactly what I expected from Obama.

“Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods is a suggestion
that seems to horrify people more than most proposals for involuntary
fertility control. Indeed, this would pose some very difficult
political, legal, and social questions, to say nothing of the
technical problems. No such sterilant exists today, nor does one
appear to be under development. To be acceptable, such a substance
would have to meet some rather stiff requirements: it must be
uniformly effective, despite widely varying doses received by
individuals, and despite varying degrees of fertility and sensitivity
among individuals; it must be free of dangerous or unpleasant side
effects; and it must have no effect on members of the opposite sex,
children, old people, pets, or livestock.”

Having the person on welfare is the source of the problem.

No “stringless” gov’t “assistance” would encourage more responsible behavior.

And the libs always get away with tagging repubs as “nazis”. What is the difference between the nazis and obama’s deathcare? Other than rounding up people, I don’t see much difference.

BOOKMARKED! I am sending this to my Christian sister who voted for Obama. I hope it will open her eyes to just how evil he is.

The three authors summarize their guiding principle in a single sentence: "To provide a high quality of life for all, there must be fewer people."

These people have tunnel vision and myopia.

They see countries with large populations of poor people with large families, they assume that this country is poor because it has too many people and too few resources.

But there is a negative correlation in many instances.

Zimbabwe is one such instance. Zimbabwe once was a thriving country known as the Bread Basket of Africa. But a repressive socialist regime took hold of the country, instituted a force redistribution of farm land, instituted many socialist programs and destroyed the country. Today poverty and cholera are rampant.

Mexico is another example. Mexico is rich in natural resources but is a poor country because socialism and corruption have ruled the country for decades.

Economic freedom is a greater predictor of poverty than is population or resources.

Japan has a high density of population and is extremely resource poor and yet has the second largest economy in the world. Japan does have a high degree of economic freedom.

Holdren should lead by example. Hey, John! Why don’t you and your Marxist buddies go first, we will watch from a safe distance to see how things progress...

Holdren’s CV:

http://www.whrc.org/about_us/whos_who/CV/jholdren.htm

Found it in less than a minute on Metacrawler. And what do you know, a whole list of “Recent Publications”. Did they really look into this guy or just nod heads ‘cause the Obominator said to? Nevermind, answered my own question, duh.

Who are the REAL Nazis?

The Liberals who are on the side of death - who never heard of an abortion they didn't like - who laud each and every abortion as a triumph of women's rights? -- OR the Conservatives who are pro-life, yet who get called Nazis by the Death-Loving Nazis themselves, in a sort of reverse psychological game?
