I don't believe the author of that blog understands how international relations work.

Or how feeding 1 billion people is slightly easier when that 1 billion doesn't become 3 in the course of 20 years.

Even though I rarely click on Hot Air links because I think they're derpy, I always hated the "not giving them any clicks" stance many Farkers have.

Now I get it.

You suck at everything, HotAir.
 
2011-08-23 11:28:48 AM

WTF Indeed: I don't believe the author of that blog understands how international relations work.


Well, the owner of the blog still believes that China owns the U.S., even though they only own 8 percent of U.S. debt (new window), so I'm willing to guess a lack of knowledge on international sovereign finances goes along with that.

Well after all Biden did have two sons. Any parent of two can understand limiting to one child....
 
2011-08-23 11:50:26 AM
What's the f*cking problem? What am I supposed to be outraged about here?

The grim punchline here is that, because of Chinese cultural preferences for boys over girls, the one-child policy has produced a male/female ratio so skewed that the only limit to how much mischief those lonely bachelors will end up causing is your imagination. If we're lucky, most of that mischief will be directed internally.

So...Hot Air is lamenting the fact that China, our sworn Godless communist enemy, will have plummeting birth rates over the next generation?

Aren't these the same people who think Real Americans™ need to birth as many Christian soldiers as possible to stop the oncoming Islamocommunohomofrancofascist hordes?

What the farktards at HotAir or Fox fail to comprehend is that it's possible to understand someone else's point of view while not necessarily subscribing to it and that it's okay to be tolerant of others and their beliefs.

Their choice.

Understand != Endorse, Advocate, Support, etc.

I understand why people go to church. Doesn't mean I'd ever go to church (without being dragged there by a friend).
 
2011-08-23 12:03:33 PM
Also anyone noticed that the Hot Air blogger didn't point out the whole quote?

"Your policy has been one which I fully understand - I'm not second-guessing - of one child per family. The result being that you're in a position where one wage earner will be taking care of four retired people. Not sustainable."

Yeah, Biden is criticizing the One-Child policy, not endorsing it.

well yes it will their undoing. However some people still have a problem with them killing kids.

I think it would be really bad to have that many horny males in one place. Either they are going to start invading other countries for their females (and letting in a lot of outside ideas) or they are going to go full tilt fabulous. Either way it's not good for the government.

My bad. I totally missed the part where Biden came out in favor of forced abortions. That's what I get for not Ring T whole FA.

It wasn't the main goal of the policy but that's how it's worked out.

Figured it was a quote mine without even clicking or hitting up Google.
 
2011-08-23 02:30:53 PM
He goes on to say, in the same speech, that the policy means that China will soon have one working adult for every four retirees and that that is "not sustainable."

Better trolly headline: Biden Tells China One-Child Policy 'Not Sustainable'--Conservatives Outraged!

Two kids are less work than 1 kid, as any parent will tell you.
 
2011-08-23 02:32:54 PM
The population will start sorting itself out and shrinking when China catches up with Europe and North America. The big problem right now is the massive population boom in Africa, where they don't have the resources, but better medicine keeps more children alive when previously they would have died young. When more children survived you need to lower the birth rate.

Of course China, like Joe Biden was pointing out went overkill and is causing big problems, especially with the cultural position of the man looking after the parents position results in everyone wanting one specific gender. A better social net has to be put into place where the elderly can feel safe to have children of any gender and still be looked after. Luckily in the US such social safety nets still exists.

Depends if one is older than the other and by how much.

Obamacare is instituting a one child policy for Real America and supplying fertility drugs to welfare queens you say?

I think the GOP is seriously going to try to make something of this.
Anything besides Libya I guess.

It has also destroyed a lot of family cohesion. There's now a generation of adult chinese that in addition to having no brothers and sisters, have no aunts or uncles. Family ties are vertical only. My oldest daughter and I went to China last year. When I mentioned that I have three daughters most adults wondered how I could afford them. When my daughter mentioned that she has two sisters most young people were envious.

What the heck are you talking about.

/parent of two kids, which are not as much work as four kids
 
2011-08-23 02:46:24 PM
Wow. People actually condoning a government telling you what kind of family to raise. Something like this I actually thought Democrats would step away from their dogma to dismiss.

/Thinks having any kids is stupid, but if people wanna crank out and support 10 kids... Go for it. (And it's the Democrats who want to use everyone else's money to pay for these extra kids. Try that logic.

Who, specifically, has condoned such government action?
 
2011-08-23 02:50:11 PM

tgregory: Wow. People actually condoning a government telling you what kind of family to raise.


Where?

All I see is people saying they understand why Biden said what he said--which is that he understands why China implemented its policy and its not his place to tell them how to run their country, but he can see that it's not a sustainable policy in the long term.

Wow! This guy is actually advocating welfare queens pumping out babies and supporting them with MY tax dollars. Well, that's Libtards for you.

When Biden sucks the cock of the chinese government, does he feel the need to suck it again 30 minutes later?

"China is here, Mr. Biden."

Well, yeah.

If they are near enough in age to entertain each other/play with each other, two kids are infinitely less work than 1. If they are far apart in ages, then the benefit of two is less, true.
 
2011-08-23 03:02:21 PM
Only a complete farking retard or a conservative blogger would mistake that quote for being "supportive" of the One Child policy. Everyone else sees Biden pointing out the obvious to the Chinese: your future is farked. Enjoy your time on top while it lasts.
 
2011-08-23 03:02:21 PM
having been to china they need a negative child policy for a while.

If you have 2 kids, pick one for the soylent factory.
 
2011-08-23 03:02:27 PM
I'm sure we'd be receptive if a foreigner who comes from a country that owes us a butt load of money came here and told us how many children we should have.
