The bill also includes a section mandating counseling for school officials who fail to distinguish between guns and things that resemble guns. School officials who fail to make such a distinction more than once would face discipline themselves.

I want to send WIE to this bill. I'll even be bathed and sent to the bill's chambers

Won't pass, it makes too much sense.

I keep waiting for my 7-year-old to get in trouble.  He enjoys drawing tanks.

Can we ban foods that look like religious figures?  I wonder how many times I ate something that looked just like Mohammad but didn't know.

They'll have to take my toaster pastry from my cold dead fingers

Hero! Make these folks practice this critical thinking they're always yapping about.

I'd rather see tests for school officials that measure basic things like whether their IQ is higher than a hamster's or if they can remember how to breathe without being kicked in the ass every 15 seconds.

This actually from a Republican? Whodathunkit

What a waste of time.  Our children are too precious to take ANY chances.

Future peoples are going to confuse our politics for melodramatic theater. There will be great debates as to whether it was real, or just an incredibly detailed piece of performance art.
 
2013-03-10 06:47:38 PM  
I thought it was a pretty funny bill, then when I saw the part about mandated counseling for the administrators that fail, it became an awesome bill.

That is also roughly the shape of the state of Maryland. Who would shape a state like a gun?

Great, now liberals will have to find something else to be irrationally concerned about.  At least this overreacting to chicken nuggets thing didn't negatively impact me...their next pants wetting shiat fit might.  We shall see.
 
2013-03-10 06:50:52 PM  
But if zero tolerance saves even one child, isn't it worth it?

/am I doing it right?

From the FARK FAQ:

"Boobies" time warpFor whatever reason message boards on sites like Fark are forever plagued with morons posting "Boobies" anytime a link is posted. Fark automatically turns the words "Boobies" into the word "boobies" and resets the timestamp on the message to some time in the future so that it isn't the Boobies anymore. Attempts to evade that sometimes result in it becoming "weeners" instead of "boobies".

You're right, so if your child brings a US map to class, she's subject to discipline.  Perfect.

i didnt read the entire farking article, but thank farking god SOMEONE with power sees how retarded the punishments were to these kids. were the cops that were called out to some of these things snickering as they walked in or out?

The bill is awesome. But it saddens me that it was necessary.

Eventually they're going to pop some high speed straight-A clean as a whistle kid for having a plastic butter knife in his lunch, it's going to cost him admission to college, and his helicopter parents will lawyer up and sue the bejeezus out of the district.  Then you'll start to see these laws turn around.

Or worse, after seeing his future go up in smoke the kid figures there's not really much of a point in going on, so he finds himself an AR and becomes the next contestant himself.
 
2013-03-10 07:13:56 PM  
Think of the people that you knew in college who were "early childhood education" majors...yeah, that's the sort of intellect that we're dealing with here.

When I was in kindergarten, pretty much all we boys did on the playground one week was reenact medieval battles, with cardboard swords, daggers and axes that the teachers helped us make. And this was a Montessori kindergarten at a Unitarian Church. Ah, the '60s.

I'll go too. I'll do the Dance of the Seven Veils with only six veils if that will help get this thing passed.

When I was in school recess was spent playing war with my friends.  We were soldiers, not like real soldiers, more like fantasy style soldiers like from the Contra games (one or two soldiers who could single handedly take on entire platoons).  The swingsets were our fighter jets and monkeybars were either tanks or something else.  Our art projects were often pictures of soldiers or fighter jets and bombers.

According to the zero tolerance policies, we should have all been suspended following our first recess.  We never committed a crime, only one of just joined the military, and we all grew up to be normal people.  I spend grades 1-6 playing war on the playground to grow up to become an insurance salesman.  These policies aren't doing a damn thing.  Kids pretending to play war to to play with toy guns and swords aren't a danger.  It's kids being kids, just like they have been for ever.  I'm glad that someone finally stood up and said "This shiat needs to come to an end."  I just hope this doesn't get buried under party politics and fear mongering about the boogey man that is guns.

When asked for a comment on the bill, another Maryland state senator was quoted as saying, "sheeeeeeeiiiiiit."
 
2013-03-10 08:03:46 PM  
from articles we read it seems zero tolerance and no child left behind causes more damage than good. if taxpaying voters can't get this stuff tossed out of the schools something is wrong with our system.
 
2013-03-10 08:04:59 PM  
I'd be interested in seeing the political affiliations of these administrators that do this nonsense across the country.  I'd be willing to bet that 100% of them are liberal bed-wetters.
