Control
I dont believe in population but we must control the number of cars on the road. The government should put added fees to own a car in cairo and encourage residents to use buses and or even bicycles. I dont see this as an over population only if we can provide job opportunities . Do that and all theses people will be an asset.

Poor and illiterate
The sad reality is that mainly poor and illiterate people have the most kids. This is one area where the government has to impose children limits, leaving it to the people won't work; just ask China!

And you wonder why your government is incapable to keep up ....
With handouts of food subsidies, jobs, schools, so you can run home to reproduce more kids you can't afford. Then whine on this board about your indignation of your governments ineptitude, and pontificate solutions.

Sorry for telling the truth
Why the negative votes? The truth is the truth. Good for Allen for consistently stating it how it is.

Then you wonder...
28 negative votes (and counting). Do you even believe the stuff that comes out of your mouth? Seriously, Allen, think before you speak/post!

Killing hopes and dreams
All progress in improving the economy will not be noticed. It will go to feed new babies. Renovate cities? They will have to double in size just to keep even. Education reform? Health care reform? Forget it. All resources will go to feed new babies.
