America´s Baby Bust
Wall Street Journal, by Jonathon V. Last

Original Article

Posted By:beancounter, 2/3/2013 11:49:04 AM

For more than three decades, Chinese women have been subjected to their country´s brutal one-child policy. Those who try to have more children have been subjected to fines and forced abortions. Their houses have been razed and their husbands fired from their jobs. As a result, Chinese women have a fertility rate of 1.54. Here in America, white, college-educated women—a good proxy for the middle class—have a fertility rate of 1.6. America has its very own one-child policy. And we have chosen it for ourselves. Forget the debt ceiling. Forget the fiscal cliff, the sequestration cliff and the entitlement cliff.

Undoubtedly women "educated" in modern, liberal colleges see children as a burden, not a blessing. If they are fortunate enough to get a job that pays enough they can hire nannies like celebrities do, otherwise children are too much trouble for them. I´m sure it is such women who are really responsible for the high abortion rate, since the parasites welcome more children as more money.

Feminism has enabled women to ignore their biological imperative in favor of a convenience that no one dare criticize. The result is a steady undermining of American society towards radical demographic change. Until women wake up to realize that they are NOT men sexually, America, if it survives, will be in a world of hurt.
Women may not want to look in the mirror if what they see is their mother. But that is preferable to what most women see in the mirror now. THAT reflection is enough to make many Americans sick.

It could be that the high rate of serious health issues among children is a result of the life style of the mother.

I would caution against generalizations here. Three of my friends are college-educated women who have fourteen children between them...counting mine, that would make twenty-one children (yes. I have seven).

However, I do know quite a few young people who are putting off children, or having more children, until they feel more secure and hopeful. Low birth rates are often a by-product of economic fears coupled with other threats.
And there are many other factors...abortion, illegal immigration, it all comes into play eventually.

My hope is that people will learn. It may not happen in my lifetime. I may be living on the curve, but history shows that when people get a clue, they can change the course of their country.

Among educated women, the pattern is first establish a career, and then have children.

This is contrary to nature as the older a women gets, the more at risk the pregnancy. Infertility, higher rates of birth defects (Down´s, Autism, and probably other things like ADHD) rise with the mother´s age. Another thing, especially among women who live in high cost, high diversion cities like NYC, they find that they are not really ever getting ahead financially and the whole point in living in an adult playground like NYC, Boston, DC or SF is to have evenings free for socializing. So they keep putting it off until it is really too late for a normal healthy child.

There is not so much a definitive ´´biological clock´ where one day you are a healthy baby machine, and the next you cannot conceive. The body - like any mechanical device - becomes less reliable with age. Baby making should commence in the 20s, yet now too many start in their late 30s with too often heart-breaking outcomes.

I live and work in an adult playground. Occasionally at a meeting or conference we will be asked to share with the group what we do for fun. 90% talk about traveling, walking or playing with their pets or going to concerts or R-rated movies. The other 10% of us talk about our families.

The other thing I notice that´s odd: people will have pictures of their kids or their friends or their pets at their desks. Very few of us have pictures of our spouses.

Sooner or later people will realize being entertained is not a vocation.

Let´s not forget that kids are expensive. Don´t tell me three can live as cheaply as one because it is not true. With stagnant wages, the unemployed, people with no health coverage. You just can´t afford a lot of kids. If you are going to have three or four one of you needs to be home with them. Especially when they are little. How many of us can do that anymore?

I was only able to have one child, but he and his wife have three. Our Church is full of nice, college educated couples with multiple children, the neighbor down the street just had her fourth and my nephew and his college educated wife are expecting their third.

Above poster brought up something that bothers me. Why are so many of our children ADHD and autistic? I firmly believe, and I know others don´t, but I think it´s all the immunizations we give our babies. The notion that a brand spanking new baby gets a hepatitis shot at birth bothers me a lot. And I´ve seen small infants gets 5 immunizations at once in health clinics. Something is very wrong with our health system where our babies are concerned.

´´Why are so many of our children ADHD and autistic? ´´

I have seen studies strongly linking Autism to the age of the mother. Sort of like Down´s. This could explain the ´recent´ rise in diagnoses. I believe that the vaccination theory is a red herring - in that most children get those shots about the time they would be naturally begin to show signs of autism, etc.

Another new thing: children that are from fertility treatments also have a tendency towards autism. However, I think that infertility and age are probably highly correlated.

Another related issue: Older starts means smaller families. If you start late and luckily have that one healthy child and you decide that having two or three would be ideal - are you really going to try - given that you are now that much older?

Another thing, having babies late means that grandparents will be much less a factor in the life of your child. But maybe you don´t like your parents or in-laws anyway.

The young couples that I know who are in their 20s or 30s are having trouble getting or keeping good-paying jobs, and they have student loan debt that ranges from merely tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Most of these young couples can barely pay their rent.

ANTIOCH, Calif. -- A quick-thinking Good Samaritan is being credited with helping police spot an AMBER Alert suspect´s car. A 7-year-old Antioch girl was found inside the car that was parked at the Antioch Marina late Friday night. Police say a possible sexual assault of the child is now part of their investigation. Because of that, AB7 News has opted not to release the name or show the victim of this crime.

Washington - Rebecca M. Blank was a top candidate in 2011 to lead President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers, but then the White House turned up something politically dangerous. “A commitment to economic justice necessarily implies a commitment to the redistribution of economic resources, so that the poor and the dispossessed are more fully included in the economic system,” Ms. Blank, a noted poverty researcher, wrote in 1992. With advisers wary of airing those views in a nomination fight, Mr. Obama passed over Ms. Blank, then a top Commerce Department official and now the chancellor of

Shelly Ross of San Francisco was looking forward to the opening of the new health insurance marketplaces under the Affordable Care Act because she was hoping to get a better deal. But now that she´s seen her options, Ross is disappointed. Turns out she earns slightly too much money to qualify for federal financial aid to help her buy coverage in the state´s exchange, called Covered California. And because policies have to be upgraded to comply with the new law, her rates are going up nearly 10 percent. "Every plan is going to cost more than what I pay now.

His quest is simple: to see an ice cream parlor opened on the ground floor of the building. But his journey has been a regulatory nightmare.

Britain is privatizing its Royal Mail postal service through a public stock offering within the next nine months. The step was expected as the British government has been giving the Royal Mail a big overhaul in preparation for going public, including paying its whopping $6.9 billion pension fund deficit and bolstering its profit. So far, so good. Revenue from parcel deliveries was up 13 percent in the last fiscal year, thanks to the growing popularity of online shopping. Overall profit climbed to $600.5 million, from $226.5 million in the previous year. All that success has led Moya Greene, Royal Mail´s

The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.
