Most people do not realize that Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood was an out and out racist and wanted to drastically reduce the black population of the USA through her programs.

It seems interesting that nowadays there are moves to reduce the number of children borne to poor women in the third world or to those in urban ghettoes where poverty and poor education standards go hand in hand. To some this makes sense, to others it sounds suspiciously like what is inferred above.

On the other hand, in the age of AIDS awareness, we might be doing this anyway.

There is no such thing as socialism; there is only perverted capitalism.

Liberals never gave up on eugenics (AKA racism), they just changed it's objectives.

Concurrent with Lyndon Johnson's "Great Society", Liberals realized that intentionally breeding and importing a dependent class would insure their political power.

Remember, it was Republican President Lincoln who freed the slaves, and Southern Democrats who enacted Jim Crow.

The problem with breeding to "improve the race" is that no one has an inkling of what traits are beneficial.

Minimee:

"Walter and Outside Observer = throwbacks?"

Thanks so much for the compliment!

And please consider as you sit in your now $1,000,000+ Eichler that your house was built for blue collar workers, and that us "throwbacks" made that level of prosperity possible back then...

And can you tell me what Liberals have done since the 50's to improve the human condition on any level?

Didn't think so......

Throwback? Perhaps I should add that to my letterhead. Perhaps fallback would be better, in the engineering sense that one goes back to a proven solution when the new, trendy solution falls flat.
