India offers firearms permits for vasectomies

"A scheme that trades one male status symbol for another has achieved a large rise in the number of men undergoing vasectomies in a bandit-ridden region of central India."

Interesting is it not? I'll do my absolute best to keep this away from Lisa, but should see discover that this pencil-dick Brit considers firearms to be a male status symbol she's likely to find the creature and perform a home style vasectomy upon him.

"Shivpuri district in the state of Madhya Pradesh, an overpopulated area renowned for its machismo culture, has started to offer fast-tracked gun licences for those who agree to be sterilised.

“This is a state with a high number of dacoits [bandits], where people like to keep rifles,” Manish Shrivastav, the administrative chief of Shivpuri and originator of the lateral thinking behind the plan, said.

“It also has a low level of vasectomies because of a perceived notion of manliness. I decided to match that with a bigger symbol of manliness — a gun licence. It has been a success.”

And there you have it. Hard to blame India, though. After all, they continue to perceive Rights and Liberty through an Englishman's eye and that means being and remaining a subject devoid of any particular NATURAL Rights at all.

One does not barter for a Right. We of course, well some of us at least, know this quite well but pity poor India for the Brits getting there first.

Was only a matter of time. Gas stations after all sell air.
