    So says the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee Rep. Jared Nadler (D-NY). "The fact is that the birth rate in this country is way below replacement level," he said. "We need immigrants to pick the vegetables and have the babies that lazy Americans refuse to. Fortunately tens, maybe hundreds of millions of people want to migrate to the United States." Rep. Delia Ramirez (D-Ill) bolstered Nadler's assertions, saying "the millions crossing our border with Mexico ensure that we will be able to eat." Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wa) claimed that "study after study has proven that the US economy...

    NEW YORK, January 10 (C-Fam) Even with adjustments for longer, healthier living, the UN’s latest population figures show rapid aging and economic unpreparedness across the globe. By each of the three metrics used in the latest UN report on aging, only Africa is projected to avoid the harsh effects of aging in the coming decades, a world where the number of elderly is projected to more than double, reaching more than 1.5 billion. According to World Population Prospects 2019, by 2050, one in six people will be over the age of 65, up from one in eleven in 2019, as...

    This example shows the importance of accuracy in your tax return. The IRS has returned the Tax Return to a man in New York City after he apparently answered one of the questions incorrectly. In response to the question, ... "Do you have anyone dependent on you?" the man wrote: ... "7.1 million illegal immigrants, 1.1 million crack-heads, 4.4 million unemployable scroungers, 80,000 criminals in over 85 prisons, plus 450 idiots in Congress and a group that call themselves Politicians." The IRS stated that the response he gave was unacceptable. The man's response back to the IRS was.... "Who did...

    Government Dependents Outnumber Those With Private Sector Jobs In 11 U.S. States By Michael Snyder December 26th, 2012 America is rapidly becoming a nation of takers. An increasing number of Americans expect the government to take care of them from the cradle to the grave, and they expect the government to dig into the pockets of others in order to pay for it all. This philosophy can be very seductive, but what happens when the number of takers eventually outnumbers the number of producers? In 11 different U.S. states, the number of government dependents exceeds the number of private sector...

    FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. - When Evelyn Burwell put on a cap and gown to accept her high school diploma, she knew someone wasn't in the audience , her dad. The 18-year-old's father is serving in Iraq, like so many other parents of her classmates at Fort Campbell High School, the largest high school on an American military base. His service has meant missing two of his children's high school graduations, countless anniversaries and birthdays, and this year, his daughter being crowned prom queen.

    HOUSTON -- Relatives of 140 workers who died on the job in Texas were denied more than $17 million in compensation benefits because of the state's narrow definition of who can receive the money, a Houston Chronicle analysis has found. Typically, only spouses and minor-age children are eligible for the lump-sum compensation, often more than $100,000 per worker, according to state law. Parents and older children must demonstrate financial dependence on the killed worker to receive benefits.

To hear a four-year old say that is enough to break your heart.” Carley’s daughter, Isabela, has been without her father, Staff Sgt. Robert Jacobson, since he deployed to Iraq with Marine Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron 4 approximately six months ago. And, six days before he left, his wife bore his firstborn son, Xander. The Jacobsons’ occupy a rare place in American society, but within the...

    Court tells doctor to foot daughter's med school bill Last Updated Wed, 12 Jan 2005 08:59:20 EST CBC News SURREY, B.C. - British Columbia's highest court has ruled that a doctor must pay 50 per cent of the cost of putting his 23-year-old daughter through medical school, referring to the money as "child support." The decision by the province's Court of Appeal could set a precedent because previous decisions have decreed that parents with sufficient means are responsible only for seeing their children through undergraduate degree programs. As far as the courts were concerned, adult children have been on their...
