Granny Pelosi...Less Babies Means A Better Economy

Showing her lack of understanding on a whole host of issues in one fell swoop, Granny McBotox was on This Week With George Stephanopoulos and defended spending hundreds of millions of dollars on 'family planning' in the stimulus bill on the grounds that it will save the states money.

STEPHANOPOULOS: We also heard from Congressman Boehner coming out of the meeting today that again a lot of that spending doesn't even meet the same test you just talked about right now. Hundreds of millions of dollars to expand family planning services. How is that stimulus?

PELOSI: Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children's health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those - one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.

Er, spending money now to 'save' money later isn't exactly 'stimulus'. Of course that assumes you are actually saving money later. In reality this and much of the so-called 'stimulus plan' is simply social planning and funding of pet projects by Democrats.

And by the way, why does 'family planning' cost so much? As many morons can attest to, not having sex is pretty damn inexpensive.

On the upside, I welcome Speaker Pelosi to the border enforcement camp. Obviously millions of illegals aliens are as much of a drain, if not more so, on our economy than citizens who have babies.

Thanks Nancy!

Meanwhile, some Japanese companies realize that their national interest actually requires there be some people around to populate their nation in the future are telling their workers, go home and make babies!

n a country where 12-hour workdays are common, the electronics giant has taken to letting its employees leave early twice a week for a rather unusual reason: to encourage them to have more babies.

"Canon has a very strong birth planning program," says the company's spokesman Hiroshi Yoshinaga. "Sending workers home early to be with their families is a part of it."

Japan in the midst of an unprecedented recession, so corporations are being asked to work toward fixing another major problem: the country's low birthrate.

No word yet on whether owners of sexbots are eligible for the extra time off.
