“Malthus has been vindicated; reality is finally catching up with Malthus. The Third World is overpopulated, it’s an economic mess, and there’s no way they could get out of it with this fast-growing population. Our philosophy is: back to the village”. — Dr. Arne Schiotz, World Wildlife Fund Director of Conservation, stated such, ironically, in 1984

“A total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal”. — Ted Turner, in an interview with Audubon magazine (father of 5)

“There is a single theme behind all our work — we must reduce population levels. Either governments do it our way, through nice clean methods, or they will get the kinds of mess that we have in El Salvador, or in Iran or in Beirut. Population is a political problem. Once population is out of control, it requires authoritarian government, even fascism, to reduce it… Our program in El Salvador didn’t work. The infrastructure was not there to support it. There were just too goddamned many people… To really reduce population, quickly, you have to pull all the males into the fighting and you have to kill significant numbers of fertile age females… The quickest way to reduce population is through famine, like in Africa, or through disease like the Black Death…” — Thomas Ferguson, State Department Office of Population Affairs

“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill…. But in designating them as the enemy, we fall into the trap of mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself”. — Alexander King, Bertrand Schneider – Founder and Secretary, respectively, The Club of Rome, The First Global Revolution, pp. 104-105, 1991

“A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people…. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions”. — Stanford Professor, Paul Ehrlich in The Population Bomb

“In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it is just as bad not to say it”. — J. Cousteau, 1991 explorer and UNESCO courier

“I believe that human overpopulation is the fundamental problem on Earth Today” and, “We humans have become a disease, the Humanpox”.
- Dave Foreman, Sierra Club and co founder of Earth First

“We must speak more clearly about sexuality, contraception, about abortion, about values that control population, because the ecological crisis, in short, is the population crisis. Cut the population by 90% and there aren’t enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage.” — Mikhail Gorbachev

“Depopulation should be the highest priority of foreign policy towards the third world, because the US economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries”. — Henry Kissinger

“The elderly are useless eaters”. — Henry Kissinger (now aged 91)

“World population needs to be decreased by 50%”. — Henry Kissinger

“War and famine would not do. Instead, disease offered the most efficient and fastest way to kill the billions that must soon die if the population crisis is to be solved. My favorite candidate for eliminating 90 percent of the world’s population is airborne Ebola (Ebola Reston), because it is both highly lethal and it kills in days, instead of years… We’ve got airborne diseases with 90 percent mortality in humans. Killing humans. Think about that… You know, the bird flu’s good, too. For everyone who survives, he will have to bury nine”. — Dr. Eric Pianka, University of Texas

“The present vast overpopulation, now far beyond the world carrying capacity, cannot be answered by future reductions in the birth rate due to contraception, sterilization and abortion, but must be met in the present by the reduction of numbers presently existing. This must be done by whatever means necessary”. — Initiative for the United Nations ECO-92 EARTH CHARTER

“In South America, the government of Peru goes door to door pressuring women to be sterilized and they are funded by American tax dollars to do this”. — Mark Earley in The Wrong Kind of Party Christian Post 10/27 2008

"Women in the Netherlands who are deemed by the state to be unfit mothers should be sentenced to take contraception for a prescribed period of two years”. — Marjo Van Dijken (author of the bill in the Netherlands) in the Guardian

“If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels”. — Prince Phillip, Queen Elizabeth’s husband, Duke of Edinburgh, leader of the World Wildlife Fund

“Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license. All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing”. — David Brower, first Executive Director of the Sierra Club

“The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes”. — Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes

“Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of”. — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

“The Planetary Regime might be given responsibility for determining the optimum population for the world and for each region and for arbitrating various countries’ shares within their regional limits. Control of population size might remain the responsibility of each government, but the Regime would have some power to enforce the agreed limits.” — Obama’s science czar John P. Holdren, co-author of “Ecoscience”


They could all help by killing themselves. smile

I have an interview on Wednesday. If only my current job would give me more hours, I wouldn't be leaving them. I don't care that it's not the most glorioius job, I just would like a decent schedule. Even when I worked 5 days, I still averaged 18 hours for the week. This week they've got me down to 3 days, but still only 9 hours for the week. I wouldn't complain if next week they would give me 25 hours. But that's also no way to live, not knowing from week to week if you'll get good hours. For all I know I could get another 9 hours next week. It's to the point where I'm not willing to hustle for hours each week. Now, they're also cutting back hours, so I know not to expect a good schedule from now on. It's time for me to go, on my 1 year anniversary, no-less.

With just a part-time job, I would be happy. But the job I applied for, it's full-time. That's one thing I might regret, I didn't like the feeling of being married to a job. Having to be there 5 days a week, not having a day off for myself. Sure, I could take a vacation. Not the same thing as having random days off during the week though. Hmm... that is one thing I would miss about this job, and not always having to work all day, long hours. Oh well. sad

I should be doing some applications instead of surfing the web.

I have one interview and a phone interview tomorrow. I need to finish up the assessment for FedEx (formerly Kinko's) and submit my resume for this other temp agency (they won't tell me the name of the company that they posted on craisgslist) because they said so in an e-mail. I hate craigslist so I e-mailed in answer to one of the ad-listed and asked what company that was that I was applying for because I like to know.

Can't believe all these responses I got so far. Wow. Back in March when I replied to craigslist ads, no one returned my messages. At all! Wow, just wow.

Now, I'm having regrets about leaving one of the sites I attend to. I will really miss the kids there, that I'm thinking that maybe I want to find a part-time job and still work the 2 (manual labor) days there just so I can see them. Today I picked some tangerines from the tree for some of them. Gary seems to be warming up to me now, just a little. Aww...

Glad I wrote all this down because I forgot what else I had to do. But when I came back here, I could check it all off the list.

All done!

Btw, I hate all those online assessment / personality tests. I know I always fail those things. That's why I couldn't even work at McDonalds, I failed the test. Sad!

confused (Don't worry, this is only bitchy resting face, nothing serious.)

eek Since when did they start making somone pass a personality test to work at McDonalds?! That's ridiculous! When I first started working, you got a job there by walking in, filling out an application, and then, if the manager liked you, you started working the next day. rolleyes What a bunch of BS...

The job I wanted, expired. But the agency that was hosting the job hired me. Things went by so quickly. I think it was on Sunday when I uploaded my resume on their website, got the e-mail from them on Monday and set up the assessment then, for Wednesday. They also wanted me to set up an interview for the same day. When I went in today, I was only expecting the skills assessment and the interview.

Got there and did the skills assessment, there were 2 other girls there when I went into the room who looked like they knew what they were doing. When I got out of the computer room, the 2 girls were gone. The receptionist wanted me to wait a bit for the interviewer. Waited about 10 minutes and she (receptionist) came up to me and said that they wanted to do the full, everything with me and asked me if it was okay. Why not, since I was there. Then she called me into the room to do another assessment (personality neutral I hate those) and fill out an online application (I swear I did one on Sunday). When I came out, still waiting for the interview, I sat in the lobby for the interviewer. She came to get me and took me into a room and barely asked me questions then said, 'Have you done the orientation yet? Here watch the orientation video. I'll go get one of the girls to come back and start it for you since I don't have the password for this computer'.

Orientation? What happened to the interview? lol When the receptionist came in to set up the video for me, she gave me a packet and sadi, 'Here I'll give this to you now', it was an employee handbook. lol The orientation video: 'Welcome to the company, you should be proud, not many people make it this far'.


I already know how I got the job since I prayed. And this might be my answer. biggrin

This was a 'different' day for me, I wore makeup for the first time in YEARS. Hated it, because by the time I got to the interview, it was all smudged and dripping into my eyes. I was afraid that they would think I was high because it made my eyes red. That was the only eyeliner that I had left, a liquid one. I might have thrown the pencils away or something. My makeup session was a disaster and I wasn't feeling like it enhanced my looks or anything either. I know it used to when I wore it years ago (humblebrag lol ).

When I got to the busstop, I was trying to find a college radio station that I used to listen to but actually found a hawaiian music station. Then a bit later, found an alternative station that I had never come across before. Weird. The traffic was so bad on the freeway that it took 3 hours to get to my destination. I even had to call the agency and ask if I could move my appointment up a little later since I didn't think I was going to make the 2 o'clock appointment. Good thing I did, I got there about 2:15, almost an hour over when the bus was supposed to get there. I would have gotten there early because I took the early bus. Anyway, weird day. And I don't even know what to do now that I got 2 jobs. Got to sleep on it and pray about it. pray

Making a playlist on Spotify, of the best of sad songs. Found a site with over 700 songs which I'm going to add to my list. Here's the list so far. It's not public yet but it's a start. https://play.spotify.com/...Bnnix95nTg

I would love to live here. But if they could just let me stay there for the convention at least.
