    Knights and Days

    Microsoft Corp. Chairman and Chief Software Architect Bill Gates will receive an honorary Knighthood from the U.K.'s Queen Elizabeth II in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday. Will he be addressed as Sir Virus? No, Gates cannot use the title "Sir" because he is not a U.K. or Commonwealth citizen, but he can write the letters KBE after his name. When you have the money he has guess you can buy whatever you want. Do we really care? Do you really care? Think this might take his mind off the latest Firefox surge? You just know he has to be grinding his teeth - I love it! LOL

    Remember this if you are a social program loving liberal: "The United States is on the verge of surpassing 300 million in population, and all projections indicate that the country is headed toward a population of at least half a billion people by mid-century. These are not abstract numbers. They will have a profound effect on every aspect of life in America, and on the rest of the world.

    Ironically, the damage we are causing as a result of rapid population growth is self-inflicted. America's race to emulate countries like India and China is primarily the consequence of one policy: immigration. Over the past 35 years, an increasing share of U.S. population growth is attributable to an unprecedented influx of immigration. Over the coming 35 years, that policy - unless it is changed - plus the legacy of immigration since 1970, will account for nearly all the population increase that this country will experience." - Excerpt from Immigrant Stock's Share of U.S. Population Growth: 1970-2004

    We need to stop all immigration and guard the borders well until we can figure this out.

    Half a billion people is a prescription for disaster, especially where resources are concerned.

    The US cannot control its southern border! Solution: Statehood for Mexico. With millions of new citizens working and contributing to Social Security, two problems solved for the price of one.
