Women are having fewer kids,
and demographers don´t know why

Washington Examiner, by Joseph Lawler

Original Article

Posted By:Maryland_Patriot, 6/7/2014 5:04:52 PM

U.S. fertility is not recovering from the financial crisis — and demographers aren’t sure why. The fertility rate fell to a record low 62.9 births per 1,000 women aged 15-44 in 2013, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. The total number of births, at 3.96 million, inched up by a mere 4,000 from 2012, the first increase since the financial crisis. But the total fertility rate, or TFR, the average number of children a woman would have during her child-bearing years, fell to just 1.86, the lowest rate in 27 years. TFR is considered the best metric of

When things get tough, men leave. When women get frumpy, men leave. Men are not men any more--some are, of course, but most are wimps.

Maybe it´s because liberals are glorifying and encouraging the murder of unborn babies? Less fetuses, less babies being born. Go figure.

Can´t understand why? It´s very clear and simple --it´s WAR ON Children.
Prevent them
Abort them
Neglect them
If that doesn´t work just plain murder them if they survive the first three.

No single reason. But a child is, in a way, a vote for the future. If you see no future to vote worth voting for...........

Many who think their prospects bleak will use the free contraceptives and abortions that government provides.

I is this akin to the declining work force participation. Apathy and despair.

Women are having fewer kids because they can´t afford to raise them. The fathers (?) walk out as soon as the going gets tough and women usually don´t get the high paying jobs. So, it´s really simple. If you are a responsible adult woman, you don´t have kids. I guess we spent billions on another stupid study that anybody with a little common sense could have come to the same conclusion.

Blame the men if you want, but I think the problem, at least in the middle class, obviously started with feminism. Many women these days all but hate men, then wonder why none are interested in them.

Look at the difference in who are having more kids an who isn´t! The smart women and men know how many children they (not other taxpayers) can raise and maintain. The feral breeders don´t care. Any ho´ or thug (that´s who they deem good breedin´ material) will do, too.

And boy, is it expensive to have kids now when you pay for them yourself!

Could it be because the world SUCKS right now?

Could it be because we have a president who is totally screwing up this country so we cannot recognize it anymore??

Could it be because any opposing opinion you have is CHUSHED by the PC police?

Could it be because the media is so in love with this administration that they suppress any negative and destructive information about this president??

Could it be that our kids, grandkids and THEIR grandkids will be paying dearly for this administrations out of control spending??????

I don´t think we need a 50 million dollar study to determine WHY women are having fewer kids!

COMMON SENSE MAYBE!!!!!

I have a beautiful family of my husband, our two sons and their dear wives, and their six children. They are the delights of my life. It is a beautiful family, and I am blessed.

However, in light of the times, I often question our bringing children into such a murderous, unbearably cruel place. I cringe for our innocent grandchildren and the suffering they will likely be presented with during their lifetimes.

Not so fast. The study isn´t broken down by race or state.

White women are having less than other groups. Who would want to bring a child into the world today (unless there is a welfare check attacked) ?

Not to fear. Thousands of children are crossing the border.

Having an raising children takes an enormous amount of effort and resources that could otherwise be used for yourself. People make this commitment when they are future oriented rather than present oriented. Future orientation is faith-based. Our loss of faith makes future orientation impossible.

Because we were indoctrinated in school, in brownies, in athletics, through Hollywood that we could be whatever we wanted to be-- president, doctor, boss in the corner office. But mother? Well, maybe a working mom but never a stay a home mom.

I´m a stay at home mom now because muncsmom is a stay at home mom and she has told me my whole life that it is a worthy and important job. Thank goodness I trusted her more than I trusted the feminist agenda forced down my throat in the 90´s while I was elementary and middle school.

I´m also southern and went to an SEC school where traditional values and gender roles are still alive and well, thank goodness.

I was surprised that after all the government´s takes, the insurance deductions, there wasn´t much left in the paycheck. Women were pursuing careers, trying to move up, and it was difficult to see that you would even be living in the same city. Commute times were atrocious. Fatigue heavy. The left had pretty much destroyed family traditions. Holidays were all on the road to mom and dad, who would never travel.

50 years of lie-berals convincing women that pregnancy is a disease (that can be prevented with birth control pills, and remedied with abortion), combined with 50 years of convincing women that having babies instead of concentrating 100% on having dynamic careers makes women second class citizens.

Another words, 50 years of Satan winning the souls of this nation.

When atrocity invites
atrocity in Middle East

Atrocity invites atrocity, and just when we think we’ve reached the bottom of the homo sapiens order, we discover there’s a bottom beneath the bottom. The kidnapping and murder of children is the vilest of all crimes, and why the perpetrators of such indecency are held as the lowest of the low in nearly every prison in the world. There is honor, of a kind, even among the killing breed. The latest indecencies at the bottom of the human order have taken the lives of four young men — three Israelis and a Palestinian. The reaction to these tragedies is eloquent testimony

Redskins lose trademark, Harry Reid
says team will be ´forced´ to change name
Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article

In what some see as the first step to forcing the Washington Redskins football team to change their name, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday cancelled six federal trademarks of the team name because it´s “disparaging” to Native Americans. “Petitioners have shown by a preponderance of the evidence that a substantial composite of Native Americans found the term REDSKINS to be disparaging,” said the decision. Fans, however, won’t see any immediate change — even if Daniel Snyder’s team eventually loses in court. That’s because all the order will do is eliminate the trademark the team has on merchandise. The Redskins are expected to appeal.

Aberdeen, Md.—Soon, Maryland will be the home to a couple of new landmarks. Actually, sky-marks. As Mike Schuh reports, two large blimps will soon rise over Harford County and stay put.

Barack Obama could use a little relief. The world is crumbling around him, much of it the result of his presidential misfeasance at home and abroad. The chickens coming to roost on Pennsylvania Avenue are neither ideological nor partisan. Evil men are bold and quick to take advantage of timidity and weakness. There’s a growing consensus, and it includes Democrats — the president is in over his head. He probably scares himself. Like all second-term presidents, Mr. Obama naturally feels liberated from partisan concerns, free to do what he likes. He can thumb his nose at public opinion because he never again

A funny thing is happening on the way to the restoration the Clinton White House. Discerning Democrats are discovering that Hillary, for all her bewitching feminine charm, just ain’t a patch on ol’ Bubba. She doesn’t have Bubba’s sure-footed skill on the stump, his roguish ability to disarm critics, his manipulation of language to step out of the way of incoming bullets, bombs and nuclear missiles. He has survival skills that other politicians can only envy and that Hillary has never shown she has a gift for.

Brix, France — Some of the veterans attending the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings here in France have fascinating stories. Take George Ciampa, the most vibrant and spry 89-year-old I have ever met. In 1944, he landed in Normandy as a soldier assigned to the 84th Graves Registration Unit. (snip) This week, George received a call from the White House, who said they knew he would be over in France during D-Day, and wondered if he would attend a private meeting the White House was arranging for veterans with President Obama. George thought about it for awhile and concluded he just couldn’t.

With public school students using #ThanksMichelle to tweet photos of their skimpy, stomach-turning school lunches, I decided to look at what Michelle Obama´s daughters are served at Sidwell Friends school, and it turns out the girls dine on lunches from menus designed by chefs.

Another great national crisis is at hand: We’re running out of white folks. There just aren’t enough of them to suit the Democrats. Last week the nation observed the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, the declaration of the U.S. Supreme Court that legal segregation of the races in the public schools is unconstitutional. The court followed that later with an order for the states to move with “all deliberate speed” to desegregate the schools. We’ve come a long way in the six decades since; everyone agrees on that much. Today there’s no such required segregation and the idea that

Barack Obama fell in love with the sound of his voice at an early age. It’s the love that dares shout its name, and will not die even when everybody else has quit listening. The president traveled this week to Hollywood, the reliable refueling stop for Democratic candidates, and preached to show-biz friends who paid up to $65,000 each for supper and had to eat it in a tent in the backyard. Everybody who was anybody was there, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Tom Rothman, James Brolin. Barbra Streisand, no doubt hoping Bubba might drop by unexpectedly, was there, too.

The White House on Tuesday formally requested $3.7 billion in emergency funding from Congress to deal with an influx of Central American minors along the southern border. But the proposal was quickly met with broad skepticism among Republican lawmakers, who were doubtful that the package would be approved quickly — if at all. Administration officials said the request is part of a comprehensive strategy aimed at building more detention centers, adding immigration judges, and beefing up border patrols and air surveillance. President Obama has said he hopes such steps will both speed deportations and discourage adults from sending children on

Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible—and likely tumultuous—three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions. "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it," said a House GOP aide on Tuesday. "But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take." Rather, the aim is to display—if not actually engage in—a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy. This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats said Tuesday that they had developed legislation to override the Supreme Court decision on contraceptives. The bill would ensure that women have access to coverage for birth control even if they work for businesses that have religious objections. The bill, developed in consultation with the Obama administration, would require for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby Stores to provide and pay for contraceptive coverage, along with other preventive services, under the Affordable Care Act. The measure could be on the Senate floor as early as next week, Senate Democrats said. “Your health care decisions are not your boss’s

Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, “no mas.” Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. It’s the only promise he has kept. Discrediting the price paid for America’s exceptionalism over our history, he’s given false hope and taxpayer’s change to millions of foreign nationals who want to sneak into our country illegally. Because of Obama’s purposeful dereliction of duty an untold

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton told the German magazine Der Spiegel on Tuesday that she and her husband Bill were ´deeply in debt´ when they left the White House, and blamed ´relentless persecution´ by Republicans for her legal bills after his presidency. The claim has added fuel to the fire Clinton herself touched off last month when she claimed they were ´dead broke´ after their time in the White House. The former first lady earns $200,000 or more every time she makes a public speech. The former president has earned a reported $104 million in speaking fees since he

Fate hasn´t been kind to Hillary Clinton, at least not in its most recent phase. In 2008, when the plate was set for the national Democrats, she lost the nomination to Barack Obama, of scant years and no gravitas, who soared out of nowhere to wrench destiny from her on the unspecified promise of "change." Now, "change" has come, and people don´t like it. Iraq changed from a safe, stable ally (just ask Obama) to a terrorist haven, one of the reasons why, though no fellow Democrats seem likely to edge her, her chances of winning the White House seem dim.
