The Problem of the Sexless Japanese Still Continues

Mark Horne posted about this problem over a year ago. Now McClatchy reports that nothing has improved. There are still a growing number of sexless Japanese. Japan is well known for many things, and its obsession with sex is one of them. It has one of the most robust pornographic and adult-toy industries in the world and airs TV commercials for items as banal as candy that feature sexually suggestive themes. It even has an annual fertility festival that parades two five-foot-tall penis sculptures Read more […]

Denying Theology Doesn’t Cancel Biology: Working Women Have a Harder Time Getting Pregnant

Working women whose jobs require more than forty hours a week take longer to conceive a child even when they are trying hard to do so. There is nothing ethically wrong with a woman working at a job for more than forty hours a week. Many women have no real choice. We all need income in order to live. But our society has tried to pretend that there are no costs to any choice that makes a woman more “empowered.” And while there is nothing wrong with working women, that doesn’t mean there aren’t Read more […]

More Obama Economy: Americans Are Afraid

A survey shows that Americans are responding to the Obama economy by putting off major life events because they are worried. The New York Times headline is a verdict on the Obama economy: “Americans Are Delaying Major Life Events Because of Money Worries.” About half of American adults have postponed a major life decision in the past year for financial reasons, mainly because they lack sufficient savings or are worried about the economy, or both, a new survey finds. The survey, conducted Read more […]

Good News for the Future: More Babies!

Women are having more babies, finally. But is it enough? Reading this story at USA Today, you would think that the main point of women having more babies is that it shows the recession has really ended. Here’s another sign that the economy is rebounding: More people are having babies. The rate of births among women ages 15 to 44 ticked up 1% from 2013 to 2014. That’s the first increase since 2007, the beginning of the recession, according to a study released Wednesday by theNational Center for Read more […]

Demographic Implosion in Japan Surpassed by Germany

While Japan has been suffering through a demographic implosion, Germany may be catching up to them. I’ve posted before about Japan’s dire decline in population. People there are simply not reproducing enough. But now it seems Germany is catching up. That, at least, is what Bloomberg Business is reporting: “No Country for Young Folk? Germany Has Lowest Birthrate.” Move over Japan. Germany now has the world’s lowest birthrate, and its economy is poised to suffer as a result. Germany Read more […]

The IRS is Facing Demographic Winter

One of the best things about demographic winter is that it might starve the government bureaucracies. While the media and the government like to pretend we are overpopulated, the truth is that we are facing population pressures from too few births, not too many. The common term for what our future holds is “demographic winter.” Demographic winter is already hurting college enrollment in the United States. It seems that the forces of demographic winter are especially hurting the Internal Read more […]

The Japanese Crisis: Economic and Demographic

A Japanese crisis in the willingness to breed has economist worried. It made the news at the Washington Post, so maybe we can hope that people will begin rethinking the overpopulation hysteria: “Japan’s sexual apathy is endangering the global economy.” That’s an attention-grabbing headline! I think it somewhat simplifies the picture. But the facts in the story are amazing. For example: Extremely high numbers of Japanese do not find sex appealing. 45 percent of women and 25 Read more […]

Mainstream Media Acknowledges Baby Shortage!

It is rather amazing that CNBC admits that we have a baby shortage. The conservative “alternative media” has warned about the demographic implosion that is starting. Colleges are beginning to feel it. But we rarely find the mainstream media acknowledging the problem. So I was pleasantly shocked to find CNBC published this editorial by Jake Novak: “We need more babies! Seriously, this is a problem.” We just learned that the U.S. birthrate fell for the sixth straight year in 2013 to Read more […]

Jonathan Gruber: Killing Babies Makes Life Better for Survivors

So now it turns out that Jonathan Gruber has written rationalizations for killing babies—a.k.a. “abortions.” The Blaze reports: “More Surprising Jonathan Gruber Comments Surface…and This Time They Have to Do With Abortion.” I’m not sure they are really that surprising. President Obama is notorious not only for supporting abortion but for refusing to protect abortion survivors from infanticide. He loves Gruber, so there is no reason to be surprised that the same bloodthirsty thinking Read more […]

Reducing Fertility in Poor Countries a Huge Priority to Wealthy Westerners

New injection is provided for reducing fertility in poorest countries. Recently I posted about a massacre in India where many women were killed by non-hygienic sterilizations. Women are bribed for a pittance to give up any chance of future children. I couldn’t help but think again about this story when I read the report from BBC that there is a new way to get women to become infertile for a three month period: “The one dollar contraceptive set to make family planning easier.” The Read more […]

More Proof Recessions Affect Birth Rate

Several sources have shown that, as the economy tanks, the birth rate also sinks. A new study not only confirms this, but suggests that a substantial number of women will never have a baby due to the pressure of the recession. An Associated Press story was posted by under the headline: “Study: Recessions Can Postpone Motherhood Forever.” A massive new study suggests that for some U.S. women, living through a recession can mean they will never have children. In fact, the Read more […]

If You Think Babies Are Expensive, Wait Until You Pay the Price of All the Missing Ones

How many news stories can be written to tell us that babies are expensive? Here’s a new one: “Report: Raising Today’s Child Tops $245K.” Naturally, it is based on a Federal Department that wants to remind us all of how expensive children are. A child born in 2013 will cost a middle-income American family an average of $245,340 until he or she becomes an adult, with families living in the Northeast taking on a greater burden, according to a report out today. Those costs—food, housing, childcare, Read more […]
