Gimmie Society – Expatriot Twit Category

And the Europeans are so glad when they can get Americans to publicly bash their own country.  But to do it while praising the gimme gimme society at the same time is a twofer:

In a few weeks, my daughter will begin nursery with the help of a generous government grant – a privilege she wouldn’t have in the US, where children begin public education when they are five.

With the US presidential race gearing up for the fall, I am continually amazed at how little support or even attention is paid to social services – from welfare to maternity leave – that are standard issue in almost every other developed country, but essentially non existent in America. National Geographic recently surveyed 168 countries and found that America was one of only five countries that did not give mothers any paid maternity leave – right up there with Swaziland, Papua New Guinea and Lesotho.

Because we all know that the reason that we fought and died in excising tyranny from America was so you and your like could coerce the productive citizens to pay for your babysitting and maternity leave.  The slogan was “United we stand, divided we end up having to pay for babysitting and maternity leave ourselves”.

Its probably in the Constitution that the “right” to paid maternity leave exists – next to that penumbra that gives the “right” to murder babies.

British Police Attacked by Mob

Of course as Rachel Lucas points out – unarmed police are about as useless as tits on a bull if the mob decides that they don’t want to obey them:

For the love of God, Britain. You really, really, really, really need to grow your balls back.

A good first step would be to arm your police. I know it sounds all hillbillyish and redneckian, but there’s something called “deterrence.” It’s this crazy concept we uncivilized rubes over here in ‘Murrica apply in order to give our law enforcement the ability to, you know, enforce the law.

But the wimps there have learned their lessons.  For example they don’t want to use the word MOB (as in group of people rioting against the public order and beating up two cops) because that might be inflammatory:

Whilst we would never use the word ‘mob’ which is an inflammatory word, we can confirm that eye witnesses have described their initial fear that officers were going to be seriously injured or killed.”

and Rachel shows what will probably be the followup:

I expect the followup article to this one to explain how the injured officers are being sued for inflaming the rage of the crowd, and maybe even a few arrests will be made of the witnesses for hate speech because they described the scene as “horrifying.”

The British do make a habit of locking up people who actually defend themselves and their property.

Get out while you can – those of you who don’t want to be paying jizya in a few years.

Britain – Mulitple Wife Welfare Payments

Sharia by stealth.
clipped from www.theothersideofkim.com
Barry Beelzebub asks the simple question: if bigamy is illegal in Britain, and it is, then why aren’t Muslim men prosecuted for having more than one wife?
But that’s only the first part of the question, because:
The [Department of Welfare and Pensions] has decreed that the going [welfare] rate is (pounds) 92.80 a week for hubby and wife one, with a further (pounds) 33.65 for subsequent wives. They don’t say that the upper limit is four, but I bet that it is.
So how did this happen? When did Parliament decide that sharia law is now applicable in Britain? Who decided to give extreme Muslims immunity from the day-to-day strictures that apply to the rest of us? I must have missed that debate and subsequent vote.
The truth is that there has been no debate and there has been no vote.
This is how Government proceeds apace in subverting our society: not by law, but by regulation.

Just how Weenie has Britain Become?

Very very very – apparently.

clipped from www.spiked-online.com
Police forces around Britain are supplying households with posters warning children not to knock on their doors.
says: ‘SORRY! No Trick Or Treat…. Trick or treat causes DANGER to the children who are often unsupervised; DAMAGE to other people’s property; and DISTRESS to the elderly and vulnerable.’

And of course, no public holiday is complete these days without lectures from on high about how wasteful we are.
The UK Energy Savings alliance has issued advice on how to celebrate ‘Hallowgreen’: make your kids costumes from second-hand clothes; only give out sweets that don’t come with packaging to trick-or-treaters; and give your own children a re-useable container for trick-or-treating, such as a ‘cloth bag, decorated lunch box or upside-down hat’ (10). There’s nothing like a bit of patronising advice about the green’n’careful way to do things to inject a bit of spirit into a minor kind-of holiday.
