    The best proven way to slow population growth is through education as women become better educated and are more empowered with well paying jobs they tend to have less children. This is the phenomenon we have seen in many European countries these same countries are encouraging immigration to account for their declining populations.

    Mr. Guzzardi writes, “Measures to prevent another uptick in population growth should include sensible family planning with the goal of no more than two children, . . .”

    Am I reading this correctly? While we might be somewhat fiscally beholden to China, since when are we to adopt their population goals? This notion of suggesting not having more than two children could easily become a mandate–and then how will that be enforced?

    I would think a better way to achieve population stabilization would be to BEGIN tightening our borders and then returning to their native countries those who have no legal right to be here in the first place.

    But then such ideas will only fuel the fires of a “racist around every corner.” I say, “‘At last,’ bring it on!”

    Do me a favor, Mr. Docktor - never apologize for me again. It really reflects poorly on you.

    Interesting that what "Mr. Francis" claims he copied from a "national newspaper" turns out to be a comment from an anonymous poster (probably himself) in response to articles in just two publications that I was able to identify - the Savannah Morning News and the Denver Post.

    See comments at the bottom of this news article:


    It is clear that this "Mr. Francis" has no connection to this community, nor to California. This is the equivalent of a pampheteer who wishes to spread misinformation in order to someone "prove" his point.

    Another example of Mr. Docktor's wish to believe everything that agrees with his opinions. Try doing some research for a change, Mr. Docktor.

    And, LNS, I find it very suspicious that "Mr. Francis" somehow tracked down Joe Guzzardi's article in order to copy and paste this comment. Looks like he does this as his own personal mission.

    the majority of Mr. Francis's post has nothing to do with race. All too often, liberals such as Ms. Bobbin attempt to silence a voice of reason by calling them a racist. Tiring it has become. However, when this happens it is an indication something is being published Liberals aren't in agreement with. Hence, the immediate character assasination.

    Mr. Francis,

    Thanks for all the info. and you'll have to excuse Ms. Bobbin. She has this idea
    that anyone who cites facts about Hispanics in our public schools they are automaticly a racist.
