Keep it in your pants

Tonight I was shopping in the Manhattan Mall location of KB Toys with Rebecca Webber looking for a an Elmo or Cookie Monster doll to send off to a little one year-old girl named Evelyn Guachun.

Her single mom wrote a letter to Santa this year asking for some warm clothes and a toy for her daughter. We came across the letter through an organization called Operation Santa.

The store was a absolute pre-Christmas mad house. Crazed kids were everywhere ... screaming ... pushing ... knocking over toy displays.

Now ... I like kids ... and I know that this post will not be a very popular one with some of you you there, but I think people need to cool it when it comes to having multiple children.

I must start this post off with an admission.

I am an only child. I love that I am an only child but this has nothing to do with my beliefs on this subject. I have a half brother and sister, and I think they are great together.

HOWEVER ... WTF is up with people reproducing like frisky rabbits?

In September 2007, the world's population is believed to have reached over 6.6 billion. In line with population projections, this figure continues to grow at rates that were unprecedented before the 20th century. The world's population is expected to reach over 9 billion by the year 2050

My feeling is this:

I really think that a couple should aim to replace themselves ... and only themselves. That means two people ... have a maximum of two kids. That way we could do our part to keep the rate of overpopulation in check.

God forbid that some couples have JUST ONE child. The world's population might ... "egads" ... shrink.

The global warming effect is a fact that is now hard to dispute. This deadly global time bomb is, in part, caused by more people consuming the world's resources. Yes ... hair spray ... but mainly oil.

Oil powers machines ... our cars ... trucks to deliver goods ... and ships that import all the garbage we buy from China, because nothing can be produced cheaply enough in this country to make a profit anymore.

I don't mean to offend anyone, but I really question people who have these massive families.

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar (Pictured below)--fundamentalists Christians who live in Arkansas started having babies when Michelle was 21. Just this year, they added child number 17 (Jennifer, whose name, like all the other Duggar children, starts with a "J" for "Jesus") to their family, and say they have no plans of stopping. Michelle has now been pregnant approximately 11 of her 40 years. As for why she wants to have still more babies --specifically, girl babies-- Michelle told the Associated Press: "we love the ruffles and lace."

Does the world really need an abundance of genetic material from a guy named Jim Bob? I mean ... what kind of ego do you have to posses to feel that there is real need for that many of your offspring?

Anyway ... enough of what I think.

What about you?

Any thoughts?
