Nanny Insanity – Remove Your Doormats

I guess this is a preview of coming attractions – but from the UK we get:

Housing officials have ordered tenants to remove welcome mats from their doorsteps – claiming they are health and safety hazards.

Residents received a letter saying the mats were potentially dangerous and were being banned, amid fears people might trip over them and sue for damages.

The note read: ‘(Doormats) being left in communal areas is a serious health and safety issue and is a fire safety risk.’

At what point does this insanity end.  Should everyone be bubble-wrapped?  I love the government excuse given:

Guy Cresswell, director of housing services at Great Places Housing Group, said: ‘Government legislation requires us to carry out fire risk assessments and to comply in full with recommendations made.

‘This work has been carried out for us by expert independent assessors. Our fire risk assessor recommended that doormats outside of people’s homes at Gaskell Rise should be removed because people could trip up over them.

The people living there think its insane, but they have no recourse.  So the mats go.

Statistics Only the KKK Could Love

Where are the leaders of the black community on the issue that almost half of the babies conceived by blacks are aborted? Do they want their community to disappear? Or are they so wedded to the Party of Abortion that they dare not speak out? If the statistics showed that white people were killing half of all black babies, wouldn’t there be an outcry?

The CDC shows a majority of women who get abortions are white (53 percent)
compared with 35 percent done on African-Americans, 8 percent on women
of other ethnic backgrounds and the race of the woman was unknown
in four percent of the cases.
However, the abortion ratio for black women (472 per 1,000 live births) was
2.9 times higher than the ratio for white women (161 per 1,000).
Examined another way, nearly half of all pregnancies among black women end
in abortion while just 16 percent of pregnancies among white women
end in abortion.
The abortion rate for black women (28 per 1,000 women) was 2.8 times the
rate for white women (10 per 1,000).

Update:
Isn’t it interesting – if you point out that the black population is aborting itself away you are considered to be a racist.
