Good News/Non-Good News on U.S. Population

We had a natural decrease in the white U.S. population last year.

So, that's a step in the right direction. This was offset by immigration--more than offset even just considering white immigration--still, it's not nothing.

There have been some encouraging estimates recently about the population out past 100 years or so, and that's good. I'd like to see us not wait that long, and address the problem in an at least semi-serious way...heck, I'd be happy if anybody even acknowledge the problem...  But business and those who think that the economy can grow forever are always pushing for more people, conservatives think we're going to be out-bred and overwhelmed by the heathen Muslims, and liberals refuse to even consider throttling back on immigration, the biggest driver of growth...

So I guess we'll just have to hope that the problem really does resolve itself.
