Theory: Wannabe Grandmas are ruining the world
We can all agree that overpopulation is partly to blame for the job crisis. Rate of people is increasing while quantity of jobs is decreasing. Major factor. Well, on top of that we can estimate that the cost of raising a kid is somewhere around 10-20K per year, including everything that would have otherwise been saved. Well, many of us 20-somethings have parents that are nagging for us to have kids, so they can be grandparents. It's like a midlife crisis thing. Well, this is an epidemic. People strive to make their parents proud, and when this time comes, they fall right into the trap. They work to support the kid while the kid doesn't do shit, the kid then grows up to occupy a job - sending another person to the unemployment line. Unemployment check is then taken out of the businessman's pocket. Businessman doesn't have as much capital to trade, invest. Economic outlook/investor confidence tanks. It is all because people gotta have junior to take to Grandma's on Christmas. Let it go people, your time will come. Raise your kids when you are 30-40 and rich and secure. Tell your moms to **** off. Tell that hoe shes ruining society. You can do it.

Even with them factored in, we are plateauing.

Which is a good thing...would be even better without illegals.
