Michael E. Arth ran for governor in Florida in 2010 as a Democrat.

This week Arth pushed Chinese-style population control. He also Americans should purchase birth credits to have kids. Vice.com reported:
So if people live longer and longer, how do you deal with overpopulation? Thats why we have to get started now. Waiting just compounds the problem. World population increases by 220,000 every day, after accounting for the 155,000 who die. Its truly a hydra-headed problem, because for every person that is cut down by death, more than two are born. This is like adding the combined populations of England, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand to the world every year. Politicians dont address overpopulation because they focus on issues that will get them re-elected in the short term, while the business interests that influence them want to see more and more consumers.
They dont address it unless theyre China. China would have two billion people today if not for their population policies. Nevertheless, China still added 350 million more Chinese since they implemented strict family planning measures in 1978, because of whats called population momentum. Because of the burst in population growth under Chairman Mao, the average age of the population had dropped. Until these excess young people had their own children, the population increased faster than if you had an evenly distributed demographic. So even limiting families to one child per couple was not low enough to stop population growth.
Now, thanks to the one-child policy to which there are many exceptions, by the way Chinas ageing population will probably not grow much more from now on, as long as they dont remove the restrictions....

Illegals can have, and rape their way into,
scores of children, but American citizens must
apply to the State for permission for their first.
Makes sense. What could go wrong?
And if people don’t buy those “birth credits”... will there be forced abortions or executions of newborns?
Stick a fork in the USA it’s done!
I believe that there are Freepers who are sympathetic to “overpopulation” issues and agree that something should be done to curb population growth. My post here is meant to draw our attention to their ignorance. Hopefully they will come out of the shadows and then we can get their minds right.
Gotta love the pic. :shakes hands with constituent:
“Nice to meet you. You probably should have never been born, nor should you procreate. You are a detriment to the planet. Me, however ..well, that’s a different story.
Have a nice day. Vote for me!!”
Here’s my attempt at population control - quit importing people!
Better yet, those that believe that there are too many people should do the honorable thing and “off” themselves. Lead by example!
I live in Florida and have never heard of this guy running for Gov. He probably got 5 or 6 votes.
“birth credits” eh? Looking at him i dont think hewill probably ever have a need for that.
Flip it: if you’re dependent on Government Payments, you are REQUIRED to have a birth-control implant. Disagree with birth control ? Fine. Either get sterilized or no payments. . .
> On a side note, anyone else believe the surge in the homosexual agenda is about population control?
I’ve always thought this was why the government so actively promotes the lifestle other than Bathhouse Barry’s support ofit for obvious reasons...
‘... should purchase birth credits to have kids.’
Let me guess, the $ goes to govt.
So they would be required to break God’s laws?
It reads like a bad tragi-comedic movie:
I think population control is a close second to the primary agenda of destroying the family.
I think the family is the el primo target for the left/Satan. This can be seen by looking at the totality of the agenda that the left is pushing - even down to the details of car seat requirements (larger per child footprint in the car) combined with fuel economy requirements (smaller cars). This is just one example of many.
So does his master. We have an enemy. He really hates us - because his Enemy loves us.
What about the H1N1 panic and vaccine?
I'd tell them to do the opposite, to pro-create themselves. Except with slightly different words.
Has there been any evidence of the effects of the vaccine?
I know H1N1 was overblown - a real non-issue. But I think that was just media sensationalism.
Not at all. They just don’t get welfare or food stamps. . .
No, nothing concrete that I know of, but plenty of conspiracy theories. As an anecdote, my wife and I got pregnant with our first within 2 weeks of going off birth control. Now almost 5 years later we are still working on #2. She went against my wishes and got the stupid vaccine. Now, we haven’t spent the money on fertility research and I can’t necessarily blame the vaccine, but it is always in the back of my mind.
Or will we see “executions” of those trying to enact or enforce such a law? Not proposing, just wondering..... It would be rather difficult for someone to try and claim the moral high ground when up to their knees in dead babies.
Democrats do it all the time... in a political sense, at least.
But they do that all the time. Christians are evil, hypocritical and judgmental. Pro-abortion folks are much more moral -- they'll let practically anyone kill a child.
Not entirely true.
Only white "Bitter Clingers" would require prior authorization to reproduce.
Their requests will be processed by overpaid, incompetent, liberal IRS employees not otherwise engaged in ignoring 501-c requests from conservative organizations.
This same idiot would also vote for unfettered immigration and amnesty.
Michael E. Arth should pick Chealsea Clinton as his running mate.
They both have simplistic solutions to the complex problem of “these excess young people” withjout consideration for unexpected consequences.
Chelsea has not yet advocated outright government population control.
But she did state her regrets that her great-grandmother, as an unwed pregnant teenager, didn’t have access to an abortion clinic so that she could have aborted Chelsea’s grandmother.
I don’t think much of Art’s proposals, but Chelsea’s ideas might have proven to be beneficial to the USA.
It’s scary that people like this are competitive candidates. The day my government starts to tell me how many kids they’ll permit is the day II start shooting.
I had the opportunity to travel to China a couple of times. While in a park in Beijing I watched a grandmother play with her granddaughter and began to think of the familial solitude this child will experience: no siblings, no aunts or uncles, therefore no cousins. I would think it would be much harder to instill family values when playmates would necessarily be from outside the family and probably within a government controlled setting. There will be no extended family at all except parents and grandparents. How will this one child take care of two aging parents and four aging grandparents? It can’t be done. The elderly will have to be institutionalized if the child has any expectation of employment. The social ramifications are scary!
Just like China the man said.
See for yourself. What do all these things have in common?
Congratulations, Alan Grayson. You are now officially no longer the Looniest Democrat in Florida.
Look closely at the picture....the woman is shaking hands with Arth's wife....a.k.a....his right hand.
" Flip it: if youre dependent on Government Payments, you are REQUIRED to have a birth-control implant. Disagree with birth control ? Fine. Either get sterilized or no payments."
I get it: basically, reproductive maiming as the price of survival. No appeal to reason, 100% coercion. Very much what what the Communist dictator, Nicolae Ceaucescu did in Romania, though his game was state-compulsory --- not state-prohibited --- childbearing. Same deal, though: get the maximum number of people dependent on govt, and then --- because they're dependent --- their bodies belong to the State and will be used for the Collective. What a detestable suggestion.
But the U.S. govt. won't do it that way --- because our Reptilian Masters have figured out a better way. It will all be done by "choice". They have already de-constructed marriage, de-normed heterosexuality, and pathologized fertility. (Ever notice that conception, pregnancy and childbirth are all monitored by the Centers for Disease Control?)
The next step will be to demonize childbearing. They will make motherhood repugnant in the minds of all. Pregnant women will be shamed the way Paul Deen is being shamed, as being a public dork, a health hazard, a laughingstock, rejected as pathetic, Palin-slimed ("Is your vagina a clown-car?")
Our Masters won't make hormonal implants mandatory. They'll make them fashionable. They'll make them a right! The opinionistas will declare that life is intolerable without an implant. And then --- rights for all!
It's already 75% fait accompli.
And not a gun being fired.
Hardly. You’re demanding the taxpayer subsidize your survival. Fine. To get, you need to give. At minimum, a guarantee that you won’t FURTHER weigh down the taxpayers with additional dependents. . . .
Have **all** the children you want. But support them by the sweat of YOUR brow,not that of the rest of us. . .
Tell Arth not to worry SARs is on the way.
Those who demand taxpayer subsidy should have as many kids as they can raise by themselves without welfare. For some, that number may be zero.
Of course, what they don't tell you is that what they really want, is to replace Americans of european extraction who would live ni a nation of laws, not men, with masses of pliant 3rd worlders who will accept their graft, corruption and cronyism as just the way things are done.
Or rather, the welfare state is only supportable if the growth rate of the underclass is held below the growth rate of the taxpaying class.
If you want to vastly reduce the welfare rolls, there are better ways to do it than to offer the infliction of permanent disability as an alternative. You could just put in time limits and work requirements. And immediately cease all the tax and regulatory burdens which have as their effect the extermination of enterprise.
Reproductive maiming is wrong in itself --- intrinsically wrong --- and doubly so if enforced by coercion.
Freepmail wagglebee to subscribe or unsubscribe from the moral absolutes ping list.
Mrs.Don-o says it better than I can. Plus she knows how to do bullet points. Very saddening and enraging. But to be honest, I think there is going to be a massive turnaround. There are more of us who are not on board than they think.
Anyone who wants on/off any of my pinglists, freepmail ME, as wagglebee has been away for a while.
Welfare needs to stop rewarding deadbeat females for having children.
First off, welfare needs to be abolished and let the churches do their job of caring for the poor, where there's accountability.
Second, stop paying women to have babies. In NY you get money for each child up to four. So guess how many four children welfare families you see.
As long as they are paid to make babies, they will because they don't have to take care of them and they don't.
If people are going to sit on their butts all day and take the free money and other hand outs from the government, it OUGHT to come with strings attached. Don't like the strings? Don't take the money.
We're in agreement on that. The matter we disagree on, is whether there should be the threat of of disabling the recipient.
Physical maiming should not be an alternative. It is immoral because it is treating this person as a dog to be spayed. It would be better to have public works employment at minimum wage --- streets still need to be swept after all, and restrooms cleaned --- than to force people to be surgically maimed.
A more acceptable solution would be time limits on benefits and work requirements. Back in the '90, thousands and thousands were taken off the welfare rolls because of strict time limits and the need to document disability.
Sorry if I left the impression that I supported sterilization. That doesn’t allow for someone to change.
That said, I support drug testing for welfare recipients and much more accountability. This business of handing them free money and giving them free rein.
I lived in a welfare town for 18 LONG years and saw all the abuses of it. They are handed everything, scam the system, and whine about how bad they have it. It sickens me. I HATE welfare and the whole program should be defunded.
People use EBT cards for cigarettes, alcohol, lottery tickets, nail salons, tattoes, drugs and pornography. When my hard-working, highly thrifty DIL was doing checkout at a grocery, it made her angry every day to see people paying for carts full of junk food AND expensive cuts of meat and seafood, while she -- working every day and conscientiously paying off student loans --- was living on bagged beans and the cheaper cuts of macaroni.
Drug tests, payment ceilings, work requirements, and lifetime limits on benefits would be a good place to start.
And the illegals --- oh man...
