A Nanny State Index

I don't believe I've ever seen countries graded on their degree of nanny statedness as this scorecard does. It should be no surprise that some of the countries in the top five are ones progressives generally point to as ones we should emulate: Finland, Sweden and the United Kingdom. I can't help but think if the United States was included, we'd be in the top five. Certainly states like California would. Not something to be proud of, just the way it is.

The only surprise for me was Germany. I would have thought they would have been a lot higher. I couldn't find Norway on there either. I would think they would be right up there.

USA #2, right behind North Korea.
Back east, in the snow & ice, people are being ticketed for warming their car engines & defrosting the windows.
Alaska & North Carolina are fighting for survival rights of woodstoves. Calif is stirring the pot with their paid trolls bashing woodsmoke.
Florida & countless states are fined for sheltering & feeding the homeless.
Western States are fined & imprisoned for having permitted ponds & putting out escape fires, grazing livestock or planting food.
The global front against nicotine, the wonder drug, has reached panic proportions.
The govt is constantly trying to ban guns, speech, nicotine, cars, jobs, food, water, recreation.
Meanwhile the Czeck govt tells the EU to F off about gun control. I might have to learn a second language. They're sane over there still.

Speaking of beer & vaping. Finding a good vape flavor to go with your beer so you don't reach for a cigarette, is hard to do. GrimGreen has dedicated his reviews to the search, fyi. Fun & helpful info.

In the UK, all vehicles new must have engine kill switches when not in motion, with gas peddle restarts........Makes sense on a metropolitan freeway, not much elsewhere....

Funny thing is, the earth is heading into a cycle of transition.....Warmer to colder......The iceberg fractures will change ocean currents, thusly kick starting a polar ice cap invasion in which ice Berg's form again over the course of the next 1000 years......

Florida will become like northern California.....Cold and wet.

Bank on it, climate change con artists are gonna eat big-time crow!
