    Hey riddler, do you have any figures for Canadian demographics, where you allegedly actually live? icon_razz.gif

    datscarf saidI think it's time for America to close our pocketbooks and borders. We are NOT the world's police and we are NOT the world's financier.
    I have a solution about their population issues, otohimo.

    Bottom line: I can careless about what happens to other 1-in-3 countries besides America(and that includes yours riddler).


    That's counties - not countries.

    Everything very bad in America now. We type on blogs all day and night to keep our fingers warm.
    Obama says I can marry another man but American men are all too skinny for sex. They get erections and then pass out.
    We need food.
    The next time Dennis Rodman returns to North Korea, I will plan to go with him.

    Thank you, OP, for bringing us the bad news truth

    Good! Those old southern bigots NEED to die off. They're the ones fucking things up for the rest of us.

    As for their local economies, let them die as well. That'll give the handful of good people an opportunity (and motivation) to "get outta dodge" and go be productive, instead of carrying on their bigoted family's name.

    Perhaps you should be worried about your own back yard Riddler. Hong Kong's population is ageing fast and its economy is maturing too.

    That it does - but they can easily remedy that by an influx of immigrants just over the wall. Canada is also struggling with the same issue - and it is attempting to bring in more immigrants as well.

    There was no political commentary to this post incidentally so it's not being "worried". The fact that small towns die in favor of larger ones probably ends up being a good thing given that there are more people available to pay for the infrastructure. Towns however would be wise to make sure they get wired up.
