I hear the average kid these days takes about 400k to raise to adulthood. That's quite a sum. Though of course, it's rathrr crude to put a price tag on life. Needless to say, though, it's how our society works!

The problem is they can still cost after they become adults, but it is not like they are not worth every penny though.

Look at his excerpt of facts from a friends\'s letter to the CO Atty. Gen.'
"A large majority of the public understands that illegal immigration already imposes substantial burdens on American taxpayers and American workers. If Obama’s administrative amnesty goes unchecked, particularly in view of the disgraceful lack of border security, illegal immigration will mushroom and those burdens will only increase. Anyone who believes that rewarding illegal behavior does not invite more illegal behavior is delusional.

A 2013 report by The Heritage Foundation revealed that the typical illegal immigrant household in the U.S. pays $10,334 in taxes but consumes $24,721 in benefits. By contrast, those numbers for lawful households are $54,089 in taxes paid compared to $24,839 in benefits. Also, it is not widely understood that Obama’ DAPA amnesty program does not require illegal aliens to pay back taxes in order to qualify for legal status and work permits. "

So our National Debt keeps increasing as overpopulation of other countries literally pours into the USA unneeded and unwanted. Except by special interests contrary to the majority.
And now we are up to over one a day with bomb train explosions(EW). 93 million out of work or wage suppressed American born. (NumbersUSA)
The first effects of overpopulation in a region is wage reduction and poverty, which then leads to migration. Then the migrants overload the countries they invade which leads to economic and ecological collapse, then the population goes into rapid decline. Many alive now will die then.

As long as folks put the onus on the illegal immigrants and not at least equally on the employers I'm going to chalk it up to scapegoating, not serious analysis.

Both poles of the magnet produce the magnetic effect. One needs the worker, and the other needs the work.

It doesn't matter, it is unlikely the population will crash enough, soon enough.
"For Those Who Still Refuse to Accept the Impending Demise of Humans

Mon, Mar 9, 2015

I’m frequently disparaged by relatively wealthy, Caucasian men who cannot think for themselves. It turns out to be a stunningly large proportion of the demographic. The line they trot out, time after time, is that I do not explain how a rapid rise in global-average temperature will cause human extinction.

Allow me, yet again, to explain with small words and short sentences. I doubt it’ll help, but I’m giving it one more try.

The genus Homo has occupied the planet for about 2.8 million years. We’ve never had humans at 3.3 C or higher above baseline in the past (baseline = beginning of the industrial revolution, commonly accepted as 1750).

Even when the genus Homo was present at relatively high global-average temperatures, the rise in temperature paled in comparison to the contemporary rate of change. Even the Wall Street Journal realizes it’s too late to mitigate. Well, of course it is: The rate of evolution trails the rate of climate change by a factor of 10,000, according to a paper in the August 2013 issue of Ecology Letters.

And that’s based on the relatively slow rate of change so far. It fails to take into account abrupt climate change, which has begun only within the last few years.

Plants cannot keep up with the rate of change. So they die. For those without the slightest clue about biology, this seems to be a technical problem to which we’ll simply design a technical solution. Not so fast, engineers. The living planet is not merely a complex set of cogs to which we can apply wrenches and screwdrivers. Evolutionary change requires random mutations and subsequent heritability. Alas, there is no time for multi-generational adaptation to a rapidly changing physical environment.

Without plants, there is no habitat for the genus Homo."

Population growth is still happening and the runaway it has induced with the bringing forward the crash of the 2040s 20 years to in a decade from now is a "fate accompli'". It is presently 7.6 billion and I wonder if it will hit 8 before die off and taking most surface life with us. It all depends on if the powers that be try an aerosol event to prevent the 1500GTs of Arctic shelf methane hydrate from self release. PIOMAS minimum ice graph readings indicate 2022 for zero ice in late summer, and the infamous "Blue Ocean Event" the year before, but it could start letting go at any time, most likely one of those times, however. Then within a year global temperatures will be rising at the rate of 1*F per year until everything we depend on is dead halfway to thermal max.
