Good day all. In a sudden attack of common sense, the Massachusetts legislature has unbanned school back sales. As you may recall, the moronic moonbats of Massachusetts were going to pass a law that would have forbidden schools from selling tasty home baked cakes, cookies and other delicious items, all for the purpose of helping the schools with extra funding for special events.
As you may recall, I wrote up a post about this a few days ago. Much mirth was had with the incompetent idiots running Massachusetts and it looks like the repeated blows to the head with a cluebat might have finally had an effect.
From a story in the Boston Herald by Chris Cassidy:
State lawmakers overturned a controversial ban on school bake sales this afternoon after a fierce public outcry over school nutrition guidelines that also prohibited pizza, white bread and 2 percent milk.
“That is the stupidest thing I’ve seen in my career,” state Rep. Cory Atkins (D-Concord), moments after the House unanimously voted to ease the statewide cupcake crackdown. “Talk about hitting the nerve of government reaching far into people’s lives.”
Hey, that’s never stopped you idiots in the past, so why now?
The Herald first broke the story about the new school nutritional requirements, which go into effect in August. Since then, the news has fueled a nationwide debate about the role schools should play in battling childhood obesity, which supporters have said is an epidemic threatening to shorten the lives of the country’s youngest generation.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper mocked the rules on his primetime show earlier this week.
Oh, so you knew you were in trouble when Anderson Cooper started making fun of you? All the other people were nothing more than “Evil Racist Right wing teabagger Repulithugs” and could be safely ignored? Nice try moron.
State Rep. Brad Hill (R-Ipswich) offered the amendment, which leaves it up to local school committees whether to adopt the Department of Public Health rules, after hearing about an Ipswich school arts group that would have had to cancel bake-sale field trip fundraisers and fielding complaints from the local football Boosters concerned about their concession stands.
“I was outraged,” said Hill. “This is not what government was set up to do. Then when I started hearing from the groups and how this would affect different fundraising activities, it upset me even more.”
More likely your were terrified that you might find an opponent in November and that you would be booted out and have to actually do this horrible thing called “work.”
Once again, hackish self interest triumphs and appears to look like true common sense. At least they fixed the problem that idiot State Sen. Susan Fargo (D-Lincoln) has been told in no uncertain terms to go pound sand.
