John R. Carter

2:49:50 to 2:50:10( Edit History Discussion )

John R. Carter

2:50:32 to 2:50:53( Edit History Discussion )

John R. Carter: 21st century, it'll be standing room only on the earth unless you limit the number of children you have and being good college-educated progressives, we launched out to reduce the amount of children we had. and we did it with birth control, and later we did it

John R. Carter

2:51:16 to 2:51:36( Edit History Discussion )

John R. Carter: there, 1.8. they're not even replacing their families with the number of children they're having. then we wonder why people cross the texas and canadian boarder to come into the united states to fill jobs because we don't have enough people to fill the jobs.

John R. Carter

2:51:37 to 2:51:58( Edit History Discussion )
