British government official advocates two child policy

Two children should be limit, says green guru

“Couples who have more than two children are being ‘irresponsible’ by creating an unbearable burden on the environment, the government’s green adviser has warned.

Jonathon Porritt, who chairs the government’s Sustainable Development Commission, says curbing population growth through contraception and abortion must be at the heart of policies to fight global warming. He says political leaders and green campaigners should stop dodging the issue of environmental harm caused by an expanding population.”

This should make us think hard about exactly who [besides tax cheats] is being confirmed into positions with the Obama administration.  This guy isn’t just some environmentalist fruitcake [ok, he is a fruitcake].  He is the chair of a government commission…influencing policy.

Free flip flops anyone?

Boozy Britain’s bloody New Year: A 999 call every seven seconds in alcohol-induced mayhem

I’m just going to warn you now, there are some rather graphic photos in this article.  If you’re bloodaphobic or pukeaphobic, you may want to skip this one.  Aren’t you glad you don’t have to depend upon socialized medical care [yet] like the Brits when you have something serious to recover from…like New Years’ Eve?

Socialism = “free” flip-flops

Socialism = “free” flip-flops

Britain to Supply Flip-Flops to Drunks Hobbling Home

“Partygoers who’ve lost their shoes or can’t make their way home safely in stilettos or platforms will receive the government-funded footwear as part of a program intended to reduce the impact of drunken behavior on the area’s police and emergency services, Inspector Adrian Leisk said.

Torbay, a seaside resort on England’s southwest coast, is popular with British vacationers and the waterfront can attract as many as 10,000 people on weekend nights over the summer, Leisk said. He added that the area gets ‘very, very vibrant.’

He said special policing teams already had been deployed to cut down on violent crime in the area, and that authorities were now focusing on mitigating the health impact of heavy drinking.

That includes deploying volunteers to stalk the streets handing out water bottles, advice and information on sexual health and alcohol use. It also includes giving flip-flops emblazoned with educational messages to partygoers who might be a little unsteady on their feet.”

Dare I say that for some people, waking up in the morning with a sprained ankle or glass shards embedded in the heel might serve as an important lesson?  The benevolent nanny state of Great Britain is not doing its subjects any favors by mitigating the consequences of stupidity.  America needs to pay attention to the example that Great Britain is setting for us.  Great Britain has traveled much further down the road of socialism that we have thus far and it is not working!
