Wacky Christians Present Irrefutable Logic

OMG, hi! Sorry, I've been a little bit busy lately. But! Here's a li'l tidbit, but it sure is funny: dependable item-source One News Now reports that we simply aren't having enough babies. White babies, that is, natch. My favorite part, though, is where the "demographic expert" presents this absolutely astounding observation:

Author and public policy expert Phillip Longman says the concept that if your parents never had children, chances are you won't as well, rings true across the world today.


Please take a moment to parse through the absolutely iron-clad logic behind that statement. Hey, I'm convinced!

My parents did not have children, so therefore I did not leave this comment, nor did I rob that liquor store. It wasn't me I swear.

My parents sadly did have children... well child. It was me.

Oh well- I learned my lesson from that debacle.

However, if they had not had children, I would have saved a lot of money in therapy getting to the place where I decided it was ok to NOT have children.

They have got to be misquoting the guy. He's actually a fellow at the New America Foundation, which is not exactly nutball central. The meeting was in Warsaw; maybe OneNews got the Polish translation and used to Google to translate it back into English?

I have no children but if I could pick a baby daddy I'd choose Princess Sparkle Pony.
Never mind that we're both gay and I've had a hysterectomy, that baby would be a helluva lotta fun.

Matty Boy, professional mathematician and golf enthusiast, was quoted as saying that well over 90% of putts not hit hard enough to reach the hole don't go in.

He was also willing to go on the record saying that most people who don't buy lottery tickets don't win the lottery, and that the making of an omelette usually involves the breaking of at least one egg.

I think longman said it, just like reported. and I love that the article describes him as a "public policy expert."

awesome.

I guess there is a decrease in children because they are dying in places like Darfur.

I guess instead of wasting time trying to save those children, we should just make new ones. White ones.
