“Weirdly enough, this is one of the rationales the Chinese have on these huge billboards justifying mandatory abortions (after the first child).”

I just read an article that there is such an imbalance of males through “selective” abortions that there are more than 30 million who are marrying age with not enough wives to go around...

BINGO =

that's what's so discouraging.

And also why history has all but disappeared from the schools - without knowing what steps lead to what, which is WHY history is not longer taught, REAL history - we are doomed to repeat it.

BTW, did you know that Winston Churchill has be deleted from UK school books?

I don't think it's such a huge problem. More and more, East Asian societies without this gender imbalance are staying single. Anyone who wants to get married will be able to get a spouse, provided he has the financial means to do so. The problem is that the trend towards the single life is becoming epidemic throughout East Asia (except for the Muslim portions, which are breeding like rabbits). For instance, in Japan:

Most single Japanese women prefer not to marry and believe they can live happily alone for the rest of their life, a poll showed Friday, casting another shadow on the future of a country plagued by a falling birthrate.

About seven in ten single Japanese women surveyed by the conservative Yomiuri newspaper said they would rather stay unwed.

Prior to the adoption of Western-style laws banning polygamy and bond slavery roughly a century ago (together with the collapse of the last declared Chinese dynasty), Chinese men had it far worse. Rich men hoovered up a good chunk of the available women, and bottom strata pretty much had to make do with renting by the hour.

Phyllis Schlafly is one of the intellectual giants on the American scene, and her ability convey her point so effectively in this fashion is a graphic affirmation of that fact.

The fact that most liberals dismiss her as a lightweight irrelevancy tells us all we need to know about liberals and their religion of liberalism.

Agreed, he was elected by the fraud of ACORN. But even to this very day people are afraid to say this outloud for fear of being called a racist. We have been taken from within.

I don’t think that his rabid and insane voters would have changed their votes if they knew about what we know now.

They would have called the presenters of the info, racists.

Maniac —

Thank you for an intelligent post that hits the nail on the head.

This Obama mess is the fault of Americans who didn’t pay attention or who are too shallow and morally bankrupt to understand the threat he posed.

If we’re to get out of this mess, we must quit blaming “media,” (which, by definition, includes any method by which you receive information, including FR and talk radio) and start taking responsibility ourselves to reclaim this country.

Yes, we should reclaim this country and we are. People are wide awake believe me.

BUT... (always a but huh?) ACORN stole the election for 0bama.This is a fact.

Although...

Moderate Independent voters were asleep at the helm and voted for the false messiah.

Based on the number of voters who were in love and didn’t care what anyone was saying, I think it might have been a bit closer, but we would still be where we are today.

For everyone who says it is all Bush’s fault that we got Obamao, remember the left has been trying to do this far-left reach for EIGHT YEARS - this didn’t “just happen” because of Bush!

No, it certainly didn't. The evidence was there, the data was marshaled, well enough in advance of 2008.

If you'll pardon the expression, they had their chance---they did not lead.

We proclaim ourselves, as indeed we are, the defenders of freedom, what's left of it in the world, but we cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.---Edward R. Murrow.

He did tell us
"we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America."

A lot of people just didn't listen or pay attention (or read between the lines). Obama may be a liar, but there are a lot of things this man has said prior to the election, that reveal what his plans were/are.

The question shouldn't be if he had told us, it should be if more people had listened, paid attention and took seriously what he did say...he would NOT be president.

He lied to everyone else, including religious black Christians who are socially conservative and oppose abortion and same sex relations.

Unfortunately, most of those "religious black chr*stians" seem to put race ahead of any and all other considerations (though they won't vote for an "uncle tom" like Alan Keyes or Clarence Thomas).

I lost all confidence in the Black church long ago. It's nothing but American Protestantism's domestic Armenian Church--all ethnicity and no theology.

Not if one of the things he’s done is grant amnesty to illegals and given them voting rights.

I would argue that the actual church-attending, Jesus following, neighbor loving black population is much more prone to vote Republican, but that doesn’t get picked up in polling out of
A) peer pressure to be silent about political views
B) blacks wearing Republican stickers get ignored by pollsters
C) voter fraud (look at Detroit)

Besides, since 1988, only Dole in 1996 was a decent front-running Republican to vote for. God fearing blacks won’t generally vote for a Republican they know to be a hypocrite.

What the Hell do you mean “if he had told us”?

Anyone here on FreeRepublic could have told you most of what is going on now.

The real question here is: How can American voters be this stupid?

I wish you were right, but I long ago lost all faith in the "actual church-attending, J*sus following, neighbor loving black population."

Besides, since 1988, only Dole in 1996 was a decent front-running Republican to vote for. God fearing blacks won’t generally vote for a Republican they know to be a hypocrite.

Dole wasn't too much to write home about either, but I don't think most Blacks will vote for a Republican under any circumstances.

Someone wasn’t paying attention in class...he is doing EXACTLY what he said he would...he is fundamentally changing America and spreading the wealth around...

Yup...remember the Joe the plumber exchange. Many very quickly forget it.

“Yup...remember the Joe the plumber exchange. Many very quickly forget it.”

Even worse, they fell for the lies and the “jokes” by the MSM that covered for what SHOULD have been his Joe the Plumber disaster and they didn’t understand the nature of what a FREE REPUBLIC should be...

Yep. Basically, the neocons (W), have been offering Democrat-Lite solutions and like Tanner’s books asys (paraphrasing), if the choices are a little of everything (Repugs) or a lot of everything (Demoncrats), then people are going to choose the “a lot” option!

I have been saying for years, Repugs can NEVER out spend the Demoncrats, they can only open the door for the Demoncrats to spend more. There were doors and corridors that even the Demoncrats were not willing to go down. But even though the Repugs only open the door a little and offer a tiny taste, the Dems now go whole hog and kick the door open. And it is the Repugs fault for even opening the D@MN door (No Child Left Behind is a perfect example).

The Department of Indoctrination is one of the most USELESS departments in the US Government. So, instead of getting rid of the thing, the Bush Neocons said, “Lets make it more prominent, let’s SHOW the people that we Repugs care!” That opened the door to a whole new level of funds to actually force a Federal level mandate for acceptable foods, classes, etc... A little gets turned into a lot. As much as the Dems have a closet full of bad results of good intentions, the new Reps helped usher in a large portion of those by saying “let’s show America that we ‘care’!”

The best way to show someone that you care about them is to give them opportunities and then get the HE!! out of the way and let them flourish. If they don’t, then that is not your fault - you gave them everything they needed; you gave them “a chance!”
