Rant on the USA reaching 300 million people

Seems many of the talk shows etc seem all concerned about the US reaching 300 million people.  Compared to other countries we have no problems.  We actually have the most arable land out of any country on earth.  Our problems are not population based!

All data derived from CIA World Factbook

United States:
world's third-largest country by size (after Russia and Canada) and by population (after China and India);

About half the size of Russia; about three-tenths the size of Africa; about half the size of South America (or slightly larger than Brazil); slightly larger than China; almost two and a half times the size of the European Union

300 million people
9,161,923 sq. km total land
