According to US census demographers, the United States population hit the 300,000,000 mark at around 7:46 A.M. today. Wow, that's a bunch of folks. To see how things have changed since we hit 200 million in 1967 or way back when it was a measly 100 million, clickity, clickity.
Meanwhile, we still have some catching up to do if we wanna catch China, which has around 1,313,973,713, according to the CIA World Factbook, (if you didn't find it in college, is a great place to get all the basics on any country on the globe. Plus, you can pretend you’re in the CIA, researching a "job" for the "company".)
What's this mean for America? Not much, other than we are having a birth every four seconds faster than a death and the population growth is added to by a new immigrant, either legally or illegally, arriving here every 31 seconds. Is it a good thing or a bad thing, I guess that depends on your point of view, but its a fact, so we should get used to it.
