Steve Irwin´s 14-year-old

over article about overpopulation

Daily Mail (UK), by Richard Shears

They are the most unlikely contestants in a verbal battle over conservation – a 14-year-old schoolgirl and arguably the world´s most powerful woman, Hillary Clinton. Bindi Irwin happens to be the daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin and the teenager is now snapping at the heels of the U.S. Secretary of State after an essay she wrote for Mrs Clinton´s e-journal was savaged by the editors. Although it is unlikely that Mrs Clinton had a hand in drastically editing Bindi´s 1,000 word essay on conservation, the Australian teenager is furious about the re-worked presentation and has

"´I must ask this question, how is it possible that our fragile planet can sustain these masses of people?"

The planet is not "fragile". Sorry, Bindi, but you´ve been conned.

Her essay was scheduled to be published in the December issue of Mrs Clinton´s e-journal titled Go Wild Coming Together for Conservation as part of the Secretary of State´s endangered species initiative.

In Clinton´s State Dept., ambassadors are an endangered species.

The world is not overpopulated. We may have too many people clustered in small areas (big cities), but there is plenty of room. To put it into perspective, the entire population of the US could live in Texas, two people each in a 2,000 square foot home on a quarter acre. We don´t have a population problem; we have a land use problem.

The population of the USA is growing at the rate of a 3rd world country. Almost all of the growth is due to immigration, legal and otherwise. With the increase in numbers, the country will move left, if not radically left, as hispanic and muslim immigrants are reliable democrat voter blocks. Gimme gimme gimme.

Excuse my selfishness, but I´d rather live in a country of 325 million than a country of 400, 500 or 600 million. With exploding numbers, we can kiss individual liberties good bye, as many restrictions will be slammed down our throats in the name of environmental objectives.

Overpopulation is a myth. Europe and Japan have declining populations. Populations that are not at replacement rates face decimation within just a few generations. It´s the reverse Malthusian effect. Immigration can fill the gap, but is that what we want? Unfortunately, there is a war on native population growth here by the proponents of abortion, gay marriage, free birth control and the demonization of people with large families (see, for instance, the Duggars).

Re: the demonization of large families. Consider that the average muslim family in the USA has 7 children. Anyone critical of muslim family size is subject to a fatal attack from the PC thought police.

#8 and #13, while I suppose a 14-year-old can be forgiven a lot of ignorance, and is certainly entitled to her opinion, she´s still not entitled to her own facts. Somebody needs to tell her that Paul Ehrlich was thoroughly discredited a long, long time ago.

She agreed to write an essay on conservation but Bindi added overpopulation as a subject. As a result, they edited out the part they did not request. No biggie. Bindi is great at publicity, though.

# 8 & 13
why do australians get free speach in America? The constitution is for AMERICANS not the rest of world. Since when is our freedoms given to others to trash us.
Yeah I know she probably has dual citizenship her mother was from Oregon and a highly envolved in green peace and other wacked out groups, but this girl is writing from Australia and hasn´t a clue to what she is saying.
like # 4 wrote the ENTIRE world can fit into a space the size of Texas and each person would have 1100 square feet of room. do the math! that leave a whole lot of space left. But of course people living in cities don´t know that, most of them wouldn´t know what to do if they weren´t in arms reach of a corner market to get food.

While I don´t particularly agree with Miss Irwin´s opinions, as someone who has had articles hacked up by idiot editors, my sympathies are with the young lady.

Remember what Shakespeare said: "First, we´ll hang all the lawyers"? Well, right after them come (most) editors (I had one very good one who made me cut a 12,000 word story to 4,000 words and made me a much better writer. But he was the exception).

I´ve even submitted articles with the proviso: "Please run this in its entirety. If wordage must be cut, let me know, and I´ll do it."

So foolish though her opinions might be (I had some foolish opinions at 14), I side with Miss Irwin.

2 thoughts... Either Bindi is being used to launch the progressive´s plan on sterilization... or she disclosed the plan too soon. I tend to think the editing claim is a farce strawman, to enable her article to get wide distribution.... and getthe low info´s used to accepting sterilization as a Must Do kinda thing.

The overpopulation myth has been around a long time. It is pure evil ideology because its logical conclusion is life has no value. The way to forced sterilization, forced abortion, and euthanasia for the elderly and infirm is paved.
What you wind up with is an excuse for any govt. to execute their citizens.
Let me repeat: the overpopulation myth is purely evil.
It makes me sad to hear such a young girl fighting for the right to spread it around.

I might add that Hitler was big believer in overpopulation, I am not making it up, read Main Kampf please.
He was a big believer in Darwin and limited resources as well.
The only logical next conclusion is to eliminate surplus population.
He decided that first mentally ill, than communists, than gays, than Jews need to be eliminated on order to save earth and Germany limited resources.
Global warming was not an issue than, but he should be a hero of the movement, think how much CO2 polluters he eliminated from the face of the earth.

Al Gore´s youngest daughter has gotten remarried under a historic tree in Santa Monica. Sarah Gore has a very casual outdoor service on Sunday morning outside a coffee shop with her famous father walking across a patch of grass that served as the makeshift aisle. Wearing a loose, off-white lace dress with bell sleeves, Sarah made her way towards her groom, realtor Patrick Maiani, who was waiting for her beside the outline of a heart in the shape of rose petals.The brief service was officiated by a female religious leader and attended by about a dozen invited guests.

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

WASHINGTON — Curt Clawson, a businessman who was little known months ago in Southwest Florida, won a contentious GOP primary Tuesday to fill the U.S. House seat left open by the scandalous downfall of Trey Radel.Clawson, 54, pitched himself as an outsider against more established candidates and was embraced by the tea party. He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest.

IRS employees who had been disciplined for tax and conduct issues were nonetheless rewarded with monetary awards or time off, according to a watchdog report released Tuesday. The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that while for the most part the reward program for IRS workers complied with federal regulations, employees who had themselves failed to pay their federal taxes and had discipline problems were also rewarded. "While not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS’s charge of ensuring the

It seems only yesterday, before the soothing elixir of “hope and change” was spoonfed to us by present-President Barack Obama, that Republicans could disagree with Democrats without being branded “teabaggers,” KKK-members, anarchists, Nazis, bomb throwers, arsonists, political terrorists or extremists.

SPRINGFIELD — As the General Assembly heads into its final month of session, House Speaker Michael Madigan said Tuesday that he doesn’t have enough votes lined up yet to extend the state’s income tax increase or raise the minimum wage. The speaker, talking to reporters the day he was easily elected to a fifth term as Illinois Democratic Party chairman, said voting to keep the personal income tax rate at 5 percent instead of letting it fall to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1 will be a “difficult roll call.” “Every person in the legislature is going to be called upon

How often have you heard a Democrat prattle on and on about how well Barack Obama has done with the economy, given the mess he inherited? Usually, it’s some version of, “Things are getting better, but the economy the President started with was so awful, so he’s done as well as anyone could expect.”When Ronald Reagan took over from Jimmy Carter in ’81, things were actually worse economically compared to when Obama took over from George W. Bush in ’08. Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now: - Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7% - Inflation (Consumer

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen.

The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama.
