playground gun law

I seem to recall many a critic of the NRA suggesting guards be stationed at schools. Critics both at home in USA and here, where many Brits were aghast at the idea of weaponry in close proximity to children.
Well I’ll be.
Look at this.  Granted we have far more gun crime in the USA then they do over here.  That should not surprise anyone.  But the very idea that criminals here have access to guns. Well, the very idea.  How is that possible?

Probably Americans selling them guns is the only way to figure it since even getting permission to have a gun, never mind go out and buy one is, is, well it just isn’t done.  Yeah right.

In the past four months there have been nine gun-related incidents in Luton linked to the Marsh Farm and Lewsey Farm estates.

In the latest, a 16-year-old boy was shot in the back early on Saturday morning. He may never walk again.

The violence has left law- abiding families so terrified they welcome the patrols, even if they risk scaring children.

Faye Bell, 37, a mother of two, said: ‘The armed police might seem heavy-handed to some people but to us they are hugely reassuring.

‘It’s very sad that it has come to this but we need the police to be armed so they can protect our kids.’

The officers, with a dog unit, have been patrolling the estate near the rundown Purley shopping centre all week.

Marsh Farm residents told the Daily Mail yesterday that the armed patrols had given them the confidence to go outside.

Shannon Read, 17, said: ‘I don’t really come out of my house at all so it’s reassuring to know these patrols are here.

cultural suicide and dumb white folks among the left. even muslims say they are wrong this time.

Just one more nail in the cultural coffin that once was England. 

Even the muslims are NOT complaining.  So often it’s white Christians who fear to offend or else make decisions just in case something might offend. After all, why chance it?  Lets censor things right out of the box so there is no danger of possibly offending anyone. Just in case.

What madness.  What stupidity.  What next?

It was one Labour Councillor who started this and planted the idea.


Take a look.

British Village Bans St. George’s Flag Fearing It Would Upset Muslims

By Palash Ghosh |
The city council of a tiny rural hamlet in Somerset, England, has vetoed a plan to fly the flag of St. George because its links to the Christian Crusades in the Middle Ages may offend the town’s Muslim residents.
The village of Radstock, about 10 miles southwest of Bath, and 120 miles west of London, has a population of about 5,620 – including just 16 Muslims, according to government figures.

Indeed, Radstock’s Muslim population is so mall, there is no local mosque.

The Council will instead fly the Union Jack at its civic flagpole instead of the more divisive St. George banner.

St. George’s Cross has been the emblem of dozens of states across Europe and is rooted in the Crusades, which sought to free the Holy Land from the Muslims.

St. George has also become the unofficial “patron saint” of England. In recent years, it has been embraced by British nationalists and football hooligans.

Labour Councilor Eleanor Jackson, a university lecturer and teacher, told Bath Chronicle: “My big problem is that it is offensive to some Muslims but even more so that it has been hijacked by the far right. My thoughts are we ought to drop it for 20 years.”

In response, John Clements, vice president of the Royal Society of St. George, a patriotic organization, called the Radstock councilors’ decision “nonsense” and a form of “censoring” of the national flag.

Rather surprisingly, Nasima Begum, a spokeswoman for the Muslim Council of Britain, also disagreed with the council’s move to ban the flag.
“St. George needs to take his rightful place as a national symbol of inclusivity rather than a symbol of hatred,” she said.
“St. George actually lived before the birth of Islam and should not be associated with any hatred of Muslims.”

Similarly, Rizwan Ahmed of the Bristol Muslim Cultural Society, said: “It is political correctness going a bit too far. Use by the far right is one thing, but to say that Muslims are offended I don’t think is correct.”
Ahmed added: “I think, if anything, this will harm understanding of Muslim people, and it feeds into the ideas that some people have of ‘Oh, here they go again, pandering to the needs of Muslim people,’ when actually it is not offensive.
Ahmed even admitted that St George’s flag is meaningful to British heritage and should be preserved.

Radstock native, 70-year-old Jenny Fisher, complained: “The only people who will be left using the flag will be football hooligans and this plays into that. I don’t think Muslims would be offended by it. Why would they? They live here. It’s stupid.”

SOURCE, I.B.TIMES

The controversy over the flag of St. George is not new.  It doesn’t make the headlines our Stars and Bars does back home, but among the appeasers and the hand wringers and of course the very left, St. George and his flag takes on the same sort of ill informed criticism.  I believe much of it is simply false. That is, many who claim to be offended, and they are usually silly white folks on the left, are just looking for a “cause” because there is so little else in their lives.

And so it is I am reminded, with the issue of the flag of the Confederacy. So often associated with the Klan as the flag of St. George is associated with football hooligans, simply because both of them have adopted those symbols.

So to make a point I merely had to scratch the surface, no digging necessary, and found an old newsreel clip of a Klan march in Washington,DC at their height
of popularity.
Let me know if you can spot one Confederate flag in this parade. 

I saw a poll today in a reasonably conservative paper, that says if an election were held today, 34% would vote Labour (Left) and 31% con. The rest split between other parties.  If that’s true, and lord knows the left here control way too much even when out of office, then the cultural suicide will continue and the Flag of St. George will go the same way as our Stars and Bars. 
Maligned and desecrated by the left and their hangers on and others just out for the day and a break from their dull routine.

Meanwhile, In The UK

image


Crivens. Did some simpleton over there hire Al Gore to speak at a convention or something?

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas - so it’s rather odd that we find ourselves in mid-May.

Snow fell across parts of Britain last night while another area had a month’s rain in just 24 hours as winds of up to 65mph battered the country’s coastlines in unusual weather for the month.

Up to 3in of snow fell in Princetown in Dartmoor, Devon, Rhayader in Powys, and Newcastle-on-Clun in Shropshire - while Pembrey, Carmarthenshire, had 3in of rain in the 24 hours until 7am today.

Shrinking Expectations

I saw a 1977 Thunderbird on the highway over the weekend. OMG, what a whale. Then the old brain cells kicked in, and dragged up the memory that the late 70s ‘birds were in fact downsized, and were built on the old Ford Torino platform. The Torino in it’s day was a mid-sized car. So by the late 70s, was the T-bird still “mid-sized” at 217” long, 3500lb, 114” wheelbase? Or had it’s shrunken size been eclipsed by shrinking size categories such that it was now a full-size car? I really don’t know. But the big square ‘77 looked like an aircraft carrier going down the road compared all the little rounded off blobby cars around it.

I saw a two door 1977 Chevy Nova the day after that. Now I know that the Nova was sold as a compact car, because the Vegas I was driving at that time were sold as sub-compacts. The 111” wheelbase of the ‘77 Nova was just 3” shorter than that of the T-bird, but at 196” long and only 72” wide the Nova was 20” shorter, 6” narrower and more lightly built.

These days the dimensions of that late 70s compact car almost perfectly fit what Chevy would like us to believe is a full sized car, the 2013 Impala. The 2014 Impala is 201” long with a 111.7” wheelbase, half an inch wider than the old Nova, yet tips the scales at 3800lb, 300lb heavier than the bloated brick that was the 77 bird. With engines just about half the size to boot, yet it goes much faster and gets at least double the mpg.

So we’re only really talking about a foot and a half between the ‘77 T-bird and the 2014 Impala. So why does the old Ford seem so gigantic? Is it width alone? The new Impala looks small and feels smaller. I don’t get it.

I’m just musing here. I guess I don’t really have a point. But I notice that most full sized American pickup trucks are 78-80” wide, and that gives plenty of shoulder room. I wouldn’t mind one bit if today’s smaller cars were half a foot wider. Kind of like the AMC Pacer tried to do, only done right this time around. Where are those “wide track” people when you need them? Oh wait, never mind. Pontiac is gone too, right? Not that the “wide track” 97 Grand Prix was even 73” across. No, that was a big con.

Cuomo’s Idiot Law Takes First Victim

NY: Busted For 2 Extra Bullets



NEW LEBANON [NY]— An upstate man was arrested under the state’s new gun law when troopers found him with a legally registered pistol that had a magazine that held nine bullets – two more than the new statute allows, state police said.

Troopers from the New Lebanon barracks in Columbia County stopped a car driven by Gregory D. Dean Jr., 31, of Hopewell Junction, around 9:45 p.m. Sunday on Route 22 because the vehicle’s license-plate lamp was not working.

While interviewing Dean, troopers noticed a handgun on the front seat, partially covered by a sweatshirt.

The troopers determined the gun, a .40-caliber pistol, was legally registered and possessed. However, when the troopers inspected the pistol, its magazine contained the nine bullets – New York’s Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act only allows seven bullets per magazine.

Police charged Dean with unlawful possession of certain ammunition feeding devices, third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation,both misdemeanors, plus vehicle infractions, police said.



“Broken tail light” is the oldest cop excuse in the world for pulling you over. In between rain showers this week I’ve been repairing the old landscaping lights we have here along the sidewalk. They run on good old GE 1156 bulbs, the ubiquitous run-forever 27W automotive tail lamp, brake light, and license plate illuminating light bulb for older cars. There now exist LED replacement bulbs that fit right into the socket and produce just as much light, yet only draw 4 Watts or less, depending on how bright a light you want. They cost around $30, but they run tens of thousands of hours and do not break. Unless clobbered by a big hammer. And some of them still run with several of the LEDs broken. So for a pile of money you could eliminate that excuse from any officer seeking to pull you over. Or you could keep a few bulbs, some De-Oxit, and a screwdriver handy, and do a walk-around at least once a week before driving, to make sure all the bulbs work.

Bah, Rained Out

I’m just a slave to the weather. Not my fault if the customers don’t believe that I can clean windows in a downpour. Clean them, you bet. Dry them ... well, not really. Besides, who wants to be up on a ladder during a thunderstorm? Not me.

Here’s a great post that sums up my attitude toward the MSM this week ...

The only difference between this week and every other week for the last 4 years is that for once we’re not the only ones paying attention.

Dear MSM,

You’ll have to excuse me if I don’t fall all over myself congratulating you for finally doing your jobs. Assuming you don’t find a way to help Obama weasel his way out of trouble again — Go, Media Matters! Go, JournoList 2.0! — it’s a little too late. The damage of this administration has been done. And he got away with it because you helped him. You covered for him.

Jim Treacher pens a nice little Toldja So.

work day

Yep. Spring must be here for real. I’m off to do a window job. Yay money!

And summer bowling league starts tonight.



George Formby and his banjo ukelele, 1936



In my profession I’ll work hard
But I’ll never stop
I’ll climb this blinkin’ ladder
Till I get right to the top

The blushin’ bride, she looks divine
The bridegroom he is doin’ fine
I’d rather have his job than mine
When I’m cleanin’ windows

The chambermaids’ sweet names I call
It’s a wonder I don’t fall
My mind’s not on my work at all
When I’m cleanin’ windows

white girls used as story continues, defendants duke it out in court.

Some months ago I posted a story about several Asian gangs targeting young white girls.  By Asian we’re talking Pakistan and that area of the world. Not China or Japan.  Indians are also referred to as Asian here. I do believe. Well anyway, I saw this a few days ago and thought it was familiar.  After all, they all mostly look the same anyway.  But LyndonB today points out this crowd is yet another one. A different gang in operating in a different part. 

As Lyndon puts it: 

This group of beasts is mostly Paki and Bangladeshi with a couple of token north African mullahs. Seems like the press are suppressing any criticism of them.

The girls targeted are young and troubled and easy marks for these guys.  One of the things I find hard to accept and something so very different from days gone by, is how easily these days white girls will accept the attention of men who are outside by miles, their own color and culture. Men who are also very much a sub species.  Not satisfied with seduction and more often rape, these vermin took pleasure in torture as well.  No surprise of course. We expect that as natural from them.  NOT because they’re muslims and some may not be. This time it has little or nothing to do with their religion. If they have one.
It has to do with the places they originate from and the culture they belong to.

Yeah, miserable men who are criminals anyway and regardless of religions or races or places of origin, do rotten things. It’s their nature.
But generally speaking, I think we expect it more from this group of unwashed lice in human form.

This people, is what England has to deal with.  At least one of the girls was 11 years old.

Child sex gang guilty of grooming and gang-raping vulnerable girls

Seven members of a child sex ring have been found guilty of forcing under age girls to commit acts of “extreme depravity”.

image

The scum on the bottom left was especially into torture. Not that the others had any problem with it.

By Amy Willis and agencies

Their victims, aged between 11 and 15, were groomed and plied with alcohol and hard drugs before being sexually assaulted and forced into prostitution. Girls who were seen as “out of control” youngsters were deliberately targeted.

Abuse sessions would go on for days and involve the use of knives, meat cleavers and baseball bats. One was even forced to undergo an illegal abortion at a backstreet clinic when she fell pregnant by one of her tormentors.

Two sets of brothers, Akhtar Dogar, 32, and Anjum Dogar, 31, and Mohammed Karrar, 38, and Bassam Karrar, 33, were convicted along with Kamar Jamil, 27, Assad Hussain, 32, and Zeeshan Ahmed, 27.

Fighting broke out in the dock at the Old Bailey after two other defendants - Mohammed Hussain and a man who cannot be named for legal reasons - were cleared.

The seven men found guilty of offences against the six girls were remanded in custody for sentencing next month.

Zeeshan Ahmed struck out at Mohammed Hussain after Hussain was cleared. He struggled as dock officers lifted him up and out of court.

Police missed several chances to catch gang members before they were finally arrested.

One was still so frightened of her attacker that she refused to give evidence for fear he would hurt her again.

She had been raped and prostituted at 11 by a man who bought her little gifts and showed her the first affection she had known.

Another victim, Girl A, complained of her plight to police on two occasions but no one was charged.

A care home manager refused to pay her taxi fare when she returned after absconding. The then 14-year-old was driven back to Oxford to be raped.

The carer was later sacked and the privately-run home where girls were placed by Oxford County Council was closed down.

The girls had been put into care because their behaviour was out of control and for their own protection.

SOURCE/ TELEGRAPH

The newspapers can not seem to agree on the numbers involved. In fact, the Mail quotes two sets of numbers. No matter. They were targeted and abused for the usual reasons and uses but with the added twist that they were also targeted due to their color. White.

So far, London and other parts of the country are operating normally.  No reports of any far right wing or any white folks out there burning cities or attacking police.  There doesn’t seem to be any rioting in the streets.  Whew. Good thing those girls were white.

Missed chances to halt sex gang: Police and social workers apologise to girls tortured by ‘medieval’ predators but chief constable refuses to resign

Seven men found guilty of catalogue of offences involving underage girls
Verdicts delivered at Old Bailey at the end of a five month trial

Two of the three care homes where victims of the Oxford sex ring lived have been closed down but only one member of staff was sacked
Sara Thornton, who has been chief constable of Thames Valley Police since 2007, rejects suggestions she should resign

By Arthur Martin and Inderdeep Bains

Catastrophic failings by police and social services allowed a child sex ring to sexually torture girls as young as 11 for eight years.

Victims repeatedly told officers they had been raped or abused by the vicious and ‘medieval’ predators – but no action was taken.

Last night – after the abusers were convicted at the Old Bailey – the police and social services apologised for failing to answer the girls’ desperate pleas for help.

But Sara Thornton, chief constable of Thames Valley Police since 2007, refused to acknowledge calls for her to resign this morning.

The gang groomed more than 50 vulnerable youngsters before selling them for sex around the country.

Nine out of ten social workers in Oxford knew that girls were being groomed by Asian men, a school support worker told the court. Five girls were abused while in the care of county council social services.

Their offences included 23 rapes, 15 rape conspiracy charges, nine charges of arranging child prostitution, five of internal trafficking for sexual exploitation and four of sexual activity with a child.

Most of the eight-year campaign of abuse took place after Sara Thornton was made chief constable of Thames Valley Police.

Today she appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme and apologised for her force taking so long to bring the perpetrators to justice.

But twice she refused to acknowledge calls for her to resign in the wake of the scandal, saying only that she needed to ‘drive improvements into the future’.

When asked by presenter John Humphrys if she would offer her resignation, Miss Thornton said: ‘I accept responsibility and as I’ve said I’m very sorry it took so long, but the focus has got to be moving forward.  I think the focus for me is on driving improvements in the future.

The case is the latest involving men of predominantly Asian origin picking up underage white girls for sex.

Yeah, that looks like about enough candles. Best suited for outdoor birthday parties, or at least ones in rooms with very high ceilings. LOL



Now, what should we send him? Nothing that has to be smuggled in, so that rules out a brace of 1911s and all the red haired beauties on this blog.  And new motorcars are simply beyond one’s budget. Something available online over there. New dust bins! Extra large tips!! No, that’s lame. Badgers! No. Those don’t ship well at all. Sock clips! No. Lederhosen! Come on old sod, get real.

Such Fascination Is Nothing New

Another one of those pre-Raphaelites

Madeline After Prayer by Daniel Maclise, 1868



A casement high and triple-arch’d there was,
All garlanded with carven imag’ries
Of fruits, and flowers, and bunches of knot-grass,
And diamonded with panes of quaint device,
Innumerable of stains and splendid dyes,
As are the tiger-moth’s deep-damask’d wings;
And in the midst, ‘mong thousand heraldries,
And twilight saints, and dim emblazonings,
A shielded scutcheon blush’d with blood of queens and kings.



Full on this casement shone the wintry moon,
And threw warm gules on Madeline’s fair breast,
As down she knelt for heaven’s grace and boon;
Rose-bloom fell on her hands, together prest,
And on her silver cross soft amethyst,
And on her hair a glory, like a saint:
She seem’d a splendid angel, newly drest,
Save wings, for heaven:—Porphyro grew faint:
She knelt, so pure a thing, so free from mortal taint.



Anon his heart revives: her vespers done,
Of all its wreathed pearls her hair she frees;
Unclasps her warmed jewels one by one;
Loosens her fragrant boddice; by degrees
Her rich attire creeps rustling to her knees:
Half-hidden, like a mermaid in sea-weed,
Pensive awhile she dreams awake, and sees,
In fancy, fair St. Agnes in her bed,
But dares not look behind, or all the charm is fled.



- The Eve of St. Agnes, John Keats, 1819, stanzas 24-26

Goodbye Angus

McDonald’s: New QP variants will replace Third Pound Angus Burgers

Now here’s news you can use. Walk into your local Mickey D’s and you’ll see the signs are up already: No Longer Available. Goodbye Angus. You were a great burger while you lasted, but like so many other things in a bun at the Golden Arches, your time is over.

McDonald’s is adding three new Quarter Pounders to its menu as the fast-food chain looks to offer cheaper premium burgers while capitalizing on one of its most popular brands.

The company, based in Oak Brook, Ill., says the new burgers will replace its meatier Angus Third Pounders, which were among the most expensive items on its menu at around $4 to $5. The Quarter Pounders will come in two of the same varieties as the Angus burgers – Bacon and Cheese and Deluxe. The third option will be Habanero Ranch.

McDonald’s Corp., which has about 14,000 U.S. locations, says the new burgers will roll out nationally in mid-June. The new Quarter Pounder line will use a bun that has eight grams of whole grains, while the original Quarter Pounder will stay with its regular bun.

The swap for burgers with less meat comes as restaurant chains across the industry face rising beef prices. The higher costs are particularly problematic for fast-food chains, which are known for their cheap eats and limited in how much they can hike prices without scaring away customers.

McDonald’s currently has more varieties of hamburger than their own menu board can showcase, and that doesn’t include any of the secret “insider” burgers known only to employees and special customers.

But Richard Adams, who consults McDonald’s franchisees, noted that Dollar Menu has also made the Angus burger a less attractive option at around $4 to $5.

“When you can get four or five burgers off the Dollar Menu, nobody’s going to buy the Angus burger,” he said. “The Dollar Menu has become a real problem for these chains.”

Without elaborating, McDonald’s Corp. said in statement Thursday that the Angus burgers “may still play a future role on our menu.” It said it was removing the burgers and Angus snack wraps to “make room for new and exciting choices for our customers.”

McDonald’s did not immediately say whether the burgers and snack wraps remained available in some restaurants. But at a McDonald’s in a Detroit suburb, the menu noted this week that they were no longer being sold.

So they’re going to keep the better bun and some of the toppings combinations. But the bigger burger of better beef goes the way of ... the horse. And buggy!

[ McDonald’s USA now has the grilled onion and cheddar cheeseburger on the menu, which previously was sold only in Europe. The company is forever trying one kind of hand meal or another. Once upon a time, somewhere up on the New England coast, during a motorcycle tour long long ago, I had a thing called a McLobster. It was actually pretty decent, though no substitute for the real deal. Never saw it again. OTOH, I haven’t been up to Maine in over 25 years. ]
