heres my suggestion. If you have more than 2 children you have to pay extra income tax.
Please go and stand in the 'Your Music' board and think about what you just said.
You're right that it's an idea, so fair play with that but the error lies with the adjective - it's a terrible idea. You could have 'mental' as well or instead of 'terrible' if you like.
See: 'the mentalist'
and sell the children to factory owners
the worlds biggest problems right now are drawf'd by the fact we are over populated. Lets put people off it and make some money in the process.
Are you a bible bashing role player? If so, I'm VERY interested.
i am oly 5'8 thou
how many parents do you think are currently on the dole and child allowance because it works out comparable or more lucrative than working?
couselling and shown movies about how they are feck ups and bad people.
because children aren't enough of a financial strain in the first place.
because i'm sure i can't be the first to mention "China"
lovely place, that.
this is still an improvement for him: 1. He actually spelled most of the words
2. He hasn't awkwardly creeped out any girls
3. He's only come across as dim witted, rather than completely mindless
It's a clever updating of Swift's satirical essay with a credit-crunch twist.
wheres your car?
I'm a dirty 'third'
there's not a lot I can agree with in your post.
when you retire?
There isn;t enough people in the UK to pay for the partying 50 somethings
the majority of the responses would be like.
Seriously thou, there are too many people in the world how would you stop people having kids?
Its either stop people having kids or kill aload of people, you got to figure my suggestion is the better option.
removing all those people who seem to like enjoying hurting innocents....the greedy one who claim success merely because they manage to entrap others into working towards their success...these would be the people jesus would choose to be culled....If he had to....if he had no other option......of course i would never advocate this myself....I'd redistribute resource and sort out the reasons why some areas are having such burgeoning overpopulation......our whole methodology is one based on making nations/groupings more powerful, when they are already powerful enough (on the whole)
population is expanding in developing countries...not in teh west..but the impact in resources is heavy on western populations...so why do you want to cull populations that aren;t harming you, the planet or themselves?
or alternative population control ideaS?! :S
I remember once in my old job watching a talk about local government and where most tax goes and it shocking the amount that goes towards children in someway, as a genetic cul-de-sac I resent subsidising other peoples brats.
Wouldn't work though, probably a negative correlation between family size and earnings as it is, so it would just make problems of poverty worse
so why wouldnt loosing SKy tv money be a incentive to have yourself fixed after the 2nd one?
we need more kids
this aging population bollocks is going to make everything so BORING.
one having more kids.
wouldnt it be better to kill of some old folk and decrease the number of kids.
In an objective sense this is the only true solution to the problem.
oooooooooooooooo k i think your taking me way too literally and out of context.
is for every human being to kill themselves. that will solve overpopulation!
and when you get older and wiser you realise all young people are boring cunts.
but old people are worse. i mean, soon they won't even have the WAR or the fact that IT ALL USED TO BE FIELDS to talk about. borrrring.
hows tricks wanna have some kids?
Eat the prisoners, then the homeless.
but one of the many points that you miss is that while over population is a big problem, it's more that we've got an 'aging population'. So, as the average age of the population gets older, the larger the proportion of the population that is not part of the workforce (i.e. retired) becomes. These people still consume resources, blah, blah, cost a lot of money in healthcare, etc, etc. Wiki it. The point is that we need MORE kids, not less.
But I'm not about to propose a Logan's Run style regime, unless of course it means I can get it on with Jenny Agutter circa 1976.
I see that icouldwinarabbit has already pointed this out.
but I suppose increasing population can be theoretically sustained (ignoring the natural resources stuff for the moment) if the workforce increases in size with it. Aging population means that the workforce is getting bigger much more slowly that the overall population. Also there's other considerations with the aging population - those in the over 65 age bracket (on average) cost more money in healthcare, often have state pensions (quite a large proportion).
SO, I'd say againg population, but I'm probably wrong (natural resources factor being quite important). Dunno.
because although the ratio of retired to working age people is increasing, that doesnt take into account that the real value of peoples earnings now are considerably higher than in the past and society could support the higher proportion of elderly so long as we have low levels of unemployment (obviously thats a bit fucked now), this may all be rubbish though, it is the opinion of people who are really opposed to immigration as a potential solution
De-Lebensraum.ogg Lebensraum (help·info) (German for "habitat" or literally "living space") served as a major motivation for Nazi Germany's territorial aggression. In his book Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler detailed his belief that the German people needed Lebensraum – for a Grossdeutschland, land, and raw materials – and that it should be taken in the East. It was the stated policy of the Nazis to kill, deport, Germanize or enslave the Polish, and later also Russian and other Slavic populations, and to repopulate the land with reinrassig Germanic peoples. The entire urban population was to be exterminated by starvation, thus creating an agricultural surplus to feed Germany and allowing their replacement by a German upper class.
I'd say lets go for Scandinavia but it gets a bit cold in the winter. Mainland Europe would probably be a bit dodgy.
Plus you're going to have the whole of the Islamic world on your back. I think you would have to push on all the way to Malaysia if you kick off here. Good oil-based rewards though.
good mix of climates from skiing to nice beaches, proximity 10/10, wine and cheeses, plus they will fold instantly.
Just the problem of the damn international community.
that's a brilliant word
i went to the beach the other day and there was an old metal bunker thing and my brother looked in and was like THERE'S SOME OLD DUDE WITH A 'TACHE IN HERE and i was like REALLY?!?!?!.
there wasn't really, he was just being silly.
We hold on with tears in our eyes
And I wonder why
We have to break down to just make things right
And I wonder why
I can't seem to tell you goodbye
Yeah, I wonder why
We need as many of the little terrors as possible. In fact, it's your civic duty to get shagging and make as many babies as possible. And it's all to pay for the next 40 years of cranky fucking baby boomer leaches using up all the pension fund. There's not many other options really.
