49ers Coach Kelly Fired, Well Deserved

By: Lloyd Marcus

In Texas, Officer Stephen Magnes, saved by his bulletproof vest, is the first policeman ambushed in 2017. http://bit.ly/2hIkeeH In Oklahoma, a policeman is in critical condition, shot with his back turned during a traffic stop. http://bit.ly/2i0DW60 In 2016, 64 officers were shot and killed. 21 were ambushed, the highest total in over two decades. http://bit.ly/2hL4yuk

Racist hate group, Black Lives Matter and its political and media supporters are complicit in painting bulls-eyes on the backs of America’s brave men and women in blue. Insidiously, they created and nurtured the lie that police are racist who murder blacks. 93% of black homicide victims are killed by other blacks. http://bit.ly/1B1uVzW

Ironically, the Left’s War on Cops has caused black on black violence to skyrocket because police are afraid to do their job; fearful of lies and negative political and media spin. http://bit.ly/2hKF4yM

Black role model 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick protested the US in support of Black Lives Matter. Kaepernick’s promotion of the lie that police murder blacks trickled all the way down to black youths in high school, instilling disdain for police and America. http://fxn.ws/2dSxAEx

When Kaepernick first dissed our country, taking a knee during the national Anthem, I thought, “Where is the 49ers coach?” Doesn’t coach Kelly have authority to say, “Keep your political protest off the field, you’re hired to play football?”

San Francisco 49ers coach, Chip Kelly, shamefully ran to microphones supporting Kaepernick and furthered the lie that cops murder blacks. http://bit.ly/2irlEhC This is a powerful reflection of Mr Kelly’s lack of wisdom and leadership.

Yes, I experienced schadenfreude over Kaepernick and the 49ers disastrous 2-14 2016 season. While I do not wish Mr. Kelly any ill will, his firing is well deserved.

Is there really an over-population problem?

Rolling hills in the most densely populated state

What if we took every person in America and spread them out evenly throughout the country? How about if we did that throughout the entire planet?

“The power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man.” – Thomas Robert Malthus,  An Essay on the Principle of Population, 1789

“As our population grows, we have to recognize that our consumption of the planet’s resources is unsustainable.  We need a global transformation of attitude and practice.” – UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s “message for International Mother Earth Day,” April 2014 

With these quotes in mind, consider the following:

The most densely populated state is California, which has approximately 100 million acres of land (or about 156,250 square miles). There are 640 acres in one square mile. There are 39,250,017 residents according to the 2016 census. That means, if spread out evenly throughout the state, each individual – in the most densely populated state in America – would have his or her very own 2.5 acres.

In July of 2015 New York City boasted 8,550,405 people. With approximately 205,000 acres (or about 320 square miles), each individual would have approximately .03 acres of land to him or herself if spread out equally – on the ground level. To put that in perspective, each person in New York City could have about 1306.8 square feet, not in a high rise apartment building, which obviously adds much more space. According to Naked Apartment, the average 1 bed apartment in New York City is about 750 square feet.

The least densely populated state is Wyoming, with 62,147,200 acres (or 97,105 square miles). According to the 2016 census, there are 585,501 people currently living in Wyoming. That means, if spread out evenly throughout the state, each individual living in Wyoming would have a whopping 106.1 acres to his or herself.

What if we took every person in America and spread them out equally?
