Here is another place where the Gloria Plan falls apart.


1) Most men who fit what she is talking about, how many of them are willing to give up their own sperm for money? Alot of those men are probably doing good for themselves to the point of not needing to donate sperm for money?

2) Alot of women who end up raising children alot as single mothers weren't planning to have children. Those "sperm banks" are for those who are planning to have children. Alot of single mothers weren't planning to have children.

True enough, all.

Perhaps the Attila The Hun plan should be implemented instead. Under this plan, all boys 12 years of age will undergo a vasectomy.
The vasectomy may be reversed at any time but the reversal must not be covered by insurance. That way, those men who have planned their lives and saved money will father children. The rest will not.

I think that most problems of the state are the results of having had the audacity to rebel against the banksters and the federales a century and a half ago. We still have carpet bags in the baggage holds.

Can you elaborate on this, in layman's terms?

Sounds alot like eugenics when one really looks at it.

They don't care as long as they can hunt and fish and boast about "traditional values."
