"Pop Tart Bill" to Replace Common Sense…

1MMAGC-PopTartHey, all you Florida parents.

It is now safe to send in those pop-tarts to school with your child. Thanks to Florida legislators who are trying to pass the “Pop Tart bill” to ban school districts from suspending students for “brandishing a partially consumed pastry or other food item (in the shape of a weapon) or possessing a toy firearm or weapon made of plastic snap-together building blocks.”

It’s a new legislative measure to bring some common sense to the zero-tolerance policy in public schools. The policy has gone extreme, over the last couple of years, with administrators suspending students over toy Lego guns, pastry shaped weapons or even mimicked hand gun play on the playground.

Isn’t it a shame that we have to use taxpayer money to pass a bill to bring common sense to our public schools?

This bill will help school administrators make proper judgment calls about the zero-tolerance policy for real incidents that pose a “serious threat to school safety”.

Let’s just top this potential bill that might be passed as one of the top 10 ridiculous bills that have to be passed because people fail to have common sense to begin with.

Next potential bill…. Common Sense 101 as a requirement in our colleges and universities. Because common sense is a dying character trait in our society today when government, at any level, has to intervene on its behalf.
