50% of the population is metoo? My goodness what kind of info is getting sent up there to Canada?

Like most liberal propaganda, metwo started off sounding great and noble and quickly evolved into a circus of frauds and guilty until proven innocent rhetoric. Heck, the poster boy, Asia Argento supposedly assaulted a minor, and as it's turning out in the court of law(well, it hasn't even been able to get that far), the case against big, bad, Harvey is turning into a giant pile of nothing. #metoo (Ironically also pronounced, pound, me, too; are they asking for it? j/k)

2017: Total population of males & females, all ages = 36,708,083
2017: Total population of females = 18,500,242. Average age of 41.5, with 900,000+ >80!
Proportion of females/men = 18,500,242/36,708,083 = 50.3983%

It's not going to be a whole lot different in the US, and may even be a little higher.
The males keep getting shot!

Hey all:

One thing I want to make clear is that a lot of people on the "right" are neutral OR for immigration...they just don't want open borders and they want the rule of law to be followed.

The left just can't seem to "grock" this...if you are opposed to open borders, then you are opposed to all immigration AND are a bigoted xenophobe...or so the "left" says.

Seems that a lot of arguments on the "left" boil down to racism and such.

Just not the case in a lot of instances!

The left is evil. They are all about trying to shut you up. Same as the various regimes. There is no discussion possible, no logic: my way or the highway.

If polls are to be trusted, looks like Trump and the American people are seeing through the Liberal agenda and propaganda:

Oh I understand that - left or right is just a dumb label. Regardless, immigration is a good thing - it keeps this country alive. We need new, young workers.

I notice that you make a pretty broad statement by stereotyping the left as being uncompromising in one post. But then  in another post, you're commenting on a picture of immigrants (probably asylum seekers as Greg mentioned) and stating "I wonder if a voter registration committee will be there to welcome them when they cross into USA?". Irony abounds.

At the end of the day, more global economic activity will mean more human movement. In the Western Hemisphere that movement is going to come primarily from South America. Comprende?

Part of the modern day immigration illusion is that it worked in the past.

A hundred years ago, even 50, the number of blue collar and anyone with a pulse and a work ethic type of jobs were significantly higher than it is today. Come over, deliver newspapers, work in the factory, build railroads and canals, construction, mining, even things like butchers and bakeries. Today the bulk of those are gone or greatly diminished and all that's left for the hombres is landscaping/construction and fast food because of technological advances. Heck half of those jobs probably won't even be around two decades from now. Nevertheless the population keeps surging and its still quite comfortable for these people to come here and do nothing and have the "system" support them.

Yes, you are all racists and bigots until you agree with and obey the Democratic Party.

It's just that simple.

This is pretty accurate and I agree with almost all of it. This is why income inequality is probably the most or second-most important social problem moving forward. And so what do we do?

Population-wise, most experts think the world population will continue growing before it caps out and stabilizes at around 8 or 9 billion (I may have that # wrong so keep me honest there).

Capital-wise, technology, as you mention, will not be replaced. Nobody will go back to building cars or computers by hand. It's much easier to order McDonalds from a giant touch screen.

Put 2 and 2 together and you're left with a really big problem. And frankly I don't see how slashing taxes and regulations to benefit the already-rich, and building a giant wall around the problem (literally!), are going to fix it.
