U.S. Population Set To Hit 300 Million

Sun Oct 15, 2006 11:12 am

U.S. population set to hit 300 million..

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061014/ap_on_sc/300_million_milestone

The US is growing at an astounding rate. What do you think would be the outcome of this population boom in a few years? Do you think it will have negative effects? Or is the country ready and able to deal with it?

While this may be true, it is still daunting. Whatsmore, the effects of India's growth, i am sure is what the US would want to avoid.

We are screwed.

Do I really need to go on ANOTHER overpopulation rant here or does everyone appreciate the fact I'm sick of ignorant assholes (myself included) who are too lazy to pull out?

Precisely that, and without referring to that being a problem in India, it is a concern for Americans.

I wasn't sure of the exact situation in China, that is why refrained from commenting. But then if such is the case, yes they both have serious problems. Reverting to the topic at hand, the US... What are your comments on that?

We had a thread on this not too long ago . . . I'd go find it but this new search engine sucks crap so I'm not going to bother . . . . .

Suffice it to say, lots of information in there to be had on this topic.
