More Guns, Less Crime

But Hayes, who previously opposed the law, also said he noticed suburbanites who now have concealed carry licenses seem to be less fearful of crime and more confident in community safety.

"Law enforcement has two goals: reduce crime and reduce fear of crime," Hayes said. "This seems to have an impact on law-abiding citizens adjusting to their fear level by confidence and knowledge."

Lutger said he liked having a gun on him because police don't always arrive on time.

"It's a great equalizer if you're attacked or if you have a bunch of thugs that rob you or want to kill you," Lutger said. "This is strictly for self protection of myself and my family."

If We Didn't Have Enough Problems....

  Two particularly hungry, exotic termite species apparently have found love halfway around the world and, as with so many other Florida hook-ups, the results are disturbing.

Asian and Formosan subterranean termites are two of the most destructive termite species in the world, responsible for much of the estimated $40 billion in economic losses attributed to termites annually.


(I'm blaming Obama for this too.)

Meet Norman Borlaug...

He won the Nobel Prize for saving a billion lives  (0r as the left calls it, "white privilege.")

And that was the key. The way to fight diseases that attack wheat and other cereals was not through pesticides and the like, but rather through breeding.. Spoiled, rich liberals today pooh-pooh and demonize GMO food, but mankind has been modifying plants since the dawn of civilization. Indeed, it is what led to civilization. We call it farming....Borlaug's work is credited with sparking what has come to be known as the "Green Revolution" in these countries, defying all predictions and achieving an astounding increase in the production of wheat within the span of a few years.
