Massachusetts libs thwarted by Republicans


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.”

Really?  You've been in government all this time and THIS is the stupidest thing you've ever heard?  What ... have you been asleep for the past 20 years?

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 notice that no "Democratic" lawmaker stepped up to the plate to declare the emperor naked.  Are Democratics blind or something?  Oh, I almost forgot ... "Democratics" are the ones who pass idiotic crap like this ... they're the ones who appoint idiot "regulators/bureaucrats" who write rules like this.

Tsk tsk though ... an EVIL REPUBLICAN spotted this blatant abuse of freedom well-hidden nugget and pointed it out for all to see.  'Stupidest thing ever" ... yes.

Here's something else "stupid."  I'll bet the compendium of guys/gals who made/published this "rule" make over $75,000 per year.  My vision is of ten or fifteen of these self-righteous morons in a conference room all deciding what they were going to do to "earn" their salary ... and this is what they came up with.  Unreal.  Can you imagine it?  All "Democratics" to boot.

Hey ... Rep Brad Hill, why don't you introduce a bill to reduce that Dept of Public Health about 25%?  Looks like we can easily afford it.  Or, alternatively, find the people who were involved in writing this rule and reassign them to a job where they can learn a lesson about interfering in the lives of people who aren't harming them.
