    Yeah... 1.3 Billion mouths to feed... I can logically understand it too. Not emotionally, but logically.

    The WH must keep one lackey employed just to write the apologies and excuses for ol' Gaffin' Joe.....'cause it's definitely a ful time duty.

    He's such a damn embarrassment to this great country.

    If Rubio gets tagged for a VP run, I can't wait for the VP debates........It will not be pretty for ol' Joe!

    Well the government should not be able to dictate how many children one family has--BUT I understand the premise of families not having more that they can afford to house-- feed and educate. In that instance contraceptive devices or permanently disabling the male or female that feel they have had enough children is perfectly O.K. with me.

    With 1.3 billion people, China faces the threat of mass starvation every time there is a crop failure. Their policy is the only logical one in this situation.

    Biden professed to "understand" China's policy. I'm going to go on record encouraging public officials to try to understand world affairs. The only reason I see to object to Biden's comments is if they are seen as *endorsing* China's policy. In fact, he criticized it, calling it unsustainable since it is slated to lead to a poor worker-retiree ratio.

    The policy is of course a bad one, leading to among other things mass infanticide. While China's large population does warrant some control I think only a voluntary family planning and education program is justified.

    We have "mass infanticide" going on in this country........It's called irresponsible, and stupid people deciding to legally murder their unborn.

    Forced murder by the government is a whole different ballgame. And anybody who understands it for any reason is a friggin' idiot.......Hence, ol' Joe Biden making an ass of himself yet again.
