In the US, most of us are lamenting the fact that while our calendars say “spring.” the season has not really “sprung” as of yet.

The faulty premise of all faulty premise is that gun control works towards preventing crime. To take a honest look at that thought, perhaps we ought to look towards a nation that established gun control, like Great Britain… Let’s see what effect once great Britain’s draconian authoritarianism has had. Here’s a report from 2009: The latest Government figures show that the total number of firearm offences in England and Wales has increased from 5,209 in 1998/99 to 9,865 last year — a rise of 89 per cent. In some parts of the country, the number of offences has increased more [...]
In some schools, the following is forbidden… Yes, best friends have been banned in some British schools. For the details, kindly consider the following, from the SUN… TEACHERS are banning schoolkids from having best pals — so they don’t get upset by fall-outs. Instead, the primary pupils are being encouraged to play in large groups. Educational psychologist Gaynor Sbuttoni said the policy has been used at schools in Kingston, South West London, and Surrey.

Most all Conservatives would classify abortion as a great evil. And, consistent with evil, we have read horror stories about abortion clinics, including babies that survived to procedure, only to be killed. Now, there is news from the UK regarding doctors aborting babies based on their gender. For more, kindly review this excerpt from the Telegraph… Doctors at British clinics have been secretly filmed agreeing to terminate foetuses purely because they are either male or female. Clinicians admitted they were prepared to falsify paperwork to arrange the abortions even though it is illegal to conduct such “sex-selection” procedures. Andrew Lansley, [...]

One of the liberal narratives, that guns cause crime, is taking a shellacking via reality. Of course, what you are about to read will NEVER appear in the MSM (unless they want to give Obama credit for it). Let’s take a look at two countries, and their attitude towards guns. First up, the US. As we all know, Americans are purchasing firearms in record numbers. While it peaked after Obama’s election, the numbers had been rising steadily since 2005. It would seem that Firearms are the only private industry that Obama has actually stimulated. Pajamas Media has looked into the [...]
The AGW folks continue to take hit after hit. With winter officially less than two weeks old, records for cold and snow continue to be set. Europe continues to be hit with record cold. They predicted no let up in the freezing snap until at least mid-January, with snow, ice and severe frosts dominating. And the likelihood is that the second half of the month will be even colder. Weather patterns were more like those in the late 1970s, experts said, while Met Office figures released on Monday are expected to show that the country is experiencing the coldest winter [...]
