300 million Americans!

The nation's population officially hit 300 million at 7:46 a.m. EDT Tuesday, when the Census Bureau's population clock rolled over to the big number.

The Bush Administration held no party or took time for a photo-op like President Johnson did in 1967 when we hit the 200 million mark.

According to the census bureau there is a death every 13 seconds, a birth every 7 seconds and every 13 seconds there is a new immigrant.

I think it would have been nice to have something positive celebrated about this, instead I hear a lot of complaining about illegal immigration again.

Happy 300 millionth American, to somebody …..somewhere, Welcome!
Whoever you are, I hope that you make the most of all this country has to offer.

This Administration is too busy telling other countries what to do, no time for anything else.
