Steve Irwin´s 14-year-old

over article about overpopulation

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.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship.

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
