PELOSI SAYS BIRTH CONTROL WILL HELP ECONOMY Sun Jan 25 2009 22:13:43 ET

I was thinking a lot about this last night. I spend a lot more and save a lot less every time I am pregnant and get ready to have another baby. Isn't that what they want :-)

"In 1921,Marie Stopes opened Britain's first "family planning" clinic, offering artificial contraception to married women of the lower classes in an attempt to control the population of the poor, whom she considered to be polluting the race."

Perhaps Pelosi has the same agenda! Who knows!

Excellent piece:)

Peace to you Nancy:)
