The Kiplinger Letter for Sept. 16, 2011, states:
GDP is likely to grow no more than 2 percent. ... Such weakness usually spells recession ahead. ... But that pattern may not apply this time. Slowing growth may instead spell stagnation, a time more akin to Japan's 20 years of weak GDP gains. .... There has been no real bounce-back from the 2007-2008 slump.
Twenty years of stagnation?
So let me ask you all this: What is it that this economy has in common with Japan? What is it that this economy has in common with the last stagnation of the USA in the 1970s?

How will the USA ever recover if this problem is not addressed?
Paying people to have kids sure hasn’t worked.
How about we gut leftism so we can have an atmosphere we’d want to have kids in??
Side effects of the PILL. Parents talk about the cost of college for fewer children. If it were free, children are not wanted. Look at Clinton, Bush and Obama. BTW look at all their predecessors.
The leftists have been brainwashing our children in the classrooms ,on tv and in the movies so that they don’t want to have children of their own by the time they become young adults.
so maybe we do need to gut leftists before they destroy our country.
Not to worry. Ten percent (yes 10%) of the population of Mexico now lives in the US, and our shameless pandering politicians will not do anything about it. Moreover it’s growing like a cancer. Too bad it’s the illiterate peasant part.
Here’s how a population shrinks —
People abandon God and ignore the command of the Bible — “go forth and multiply.”
Materialist working mothers have no time for one or two children, much less five or six. Slacker guys refuse to study or work hard, and delay marriage and children until it’s too late.
Our secular people are selfish, lazy, greedy, utopian (seeking the perfect mate).
That’s how a once-great nation vanishes.
1. ban abortion
2. Ease Adoption for Americans
3. Prizes for Kids.
4. More Jobs for all by losing up borders from cheap goods.
5. Universal draft for ALL 18-to 20 year olds.
6. Prison colonies in Alaska for law breakers.
7. Chain Gangs to build infrastructure cheaply—make criminals work hard and not sit in prison.
8. Guest workers to rebuild the Railroads from China.
9. An American Foreign legion—to earn citizenship.
10. Balanced budget amendment.
Just had a dear friend lose her son in an auto accident.
She bought into the lie that two children were enough... the “million dollar family”...one son, one daughter.
Now she only has one child left. She’s in her mid 40’s.
The loss of a child is always horrible.
Because of child deaths, more than one child per each person is needed to sustain a population. Currently, the USA is less than a half child per man/woman between 20 and 40.
That video certainly explains the problem.
It is excellent!
Currently, 1.6 million legal and illegal immigrants settle in the country each year; 350,000 immigrants leave each year, resulting in a net immigration of 1.25 million. Since 1970, the U.S. population has increased from 203 million to 310 million, i.e., over 100 million. In the next 40 years, the population will increase by 130 million to 440 million. This is the euivalent of adding the combined populations of France and the UK. Three-quarters of the increase in our population since 1970 and the projected increase will be the result of immigration. The U.S., the worlds third most populous nation, has the highest annual rate of population growth of any developed country in the world, i.e., 0.977 percent (2010 estimate), principally due to immigration.
The US will remain the third largest country in the world in terms of population behind China and India for some time to come. Half a billion people by 2060.
Thanks to immigration, our population is not shrinking. In fact, we have the highest annual population growth rate of any developed country on the planet. We will add 130 million over the next 40 years. And we have added 107 million since 1970.
Redistribution of the population from poor countries to wealthier countries is the ultimate form of redistribution of wealth.
Since the 1965 Immigration Act, our pro-population growth immigration policies have fueled major demographic changes in a very short period of time. In 1970, non-Hispanic whites comprised 89 percent of the population; today they are 66 percent; and by 2039, they will be 50 percent. The Democrats, under the banner of multiculturalism and diversity, have forged a political coalition that depends on individuals coalescing around racial and ethnic identities rather than the issues. The continuing and increasing flow of minority immigrants, mostly poor and uneducated, provide a natural constituency for the Democrats, which see them as their principal source of political power.
HOW TO TAKE THE CHILL OUT OF DEMOGRAPHIC WINTER
Excerpts from A speech by Don Feder to the New Generation Church, Riga, Latvia, November 16, 2007
‘Homophobia,’ demographic decline, Islamic immigration and the European death wish
By Don Feder

We’re leveling off like everyone else, even with immigration. We’re not as bad as suicidal Russia or Japan, but we’ll get there sooner or later.
"By 2050, the minority population -- everyone except for non-Hispanic, single-race whites -- is projected to be 235.7 million out of a total U.S. population of 439 million. The nation is projected to reach the 400 million population milestone in 2039."
We have a population today of 311 million. We will add about 130 million to our population in the next 40 years.
You are wrong, beaver breath.
US population growth IS slowing down dramatically. It nearly quadrupled in the 20th century alone but will not even double by the year 2300.
LOL. Slowing down? Citing an article from 2003 misses the point. Our population is still growing. We have the highest rate of population growth of any developed country in the world. I provided you with the Census figures. Denial just aint a river in Egypt. By 2100 we will be apprpoaching a 3/4 of a billion people.
Forget about the percentages and look at the actual numbers. In 1900 the population of the US was 76,212,168; in 1950 it was 151,325,798; in 2000, it was 281,421,906; today, it is 311 million; and by 2050 it will be 440,00,000. In just 100 years (1950-2050) we will have added close to 300 million people.
The numbers are right in front of your face. The US population growth rate IS slowing down. It WIll hit the wall. Total population WILL begin dropping.
No nation has ever recovered from declining, aging population. Our graying, selfish, child-averse parents are sowing the seeds of our destruction.
Dropping when? And we have immigration that makes up for any birthrate drops. The US doesn’t have a population problem in terms of too little. It is the exact opposite. Our pro-population growth immigration policies are fueling huge increases in our numbers.
