The PROM says goodbye to some of that Beretta tax money;

more to follow.
Not to mention jobs lost and so on.  But I'm sure the clowns running the state will feel very virtuous at running this company out.

In the Dark and Fascist State of New Jersey: "How dare you bring inconvenient facts into this! Guards!" 

Why I call it Zero-Tolerance Stupidity:
The family of a second-grade boy suspended from his school in Maryland’s Anne Arundel County for chewing his Pop-Tart-like pastry into the shape of a gun has lost a bid to have the episode expunged from the child’s record, according to the family’s attorney.

Emily Miller and Judicial Watch are after the reasons why Dick Gregory wasn't treated like any other citizen.
And the OAG and MPD really aren't happy about it.
Tough shit, folks.

If you haven't heard what happened to the Reese family, go check it out.  It's a disgrace.  And I should have been doing a better job of following this.

Yes, she would; and this kind of thing we really do need to be aware of.

In closing,

Re: "zero-tollerance stupidity": the family needs to retaliate by reminding the public that these school officials made a literal Federal case out of their kid eating his Pop tart into an L shape. It's ridiculous to claim it's "gun shaped"; if that's the case, then we need to expunge the capital letter L from the alphabet, lest the little idiots be traumatized simply by seeing it!

I would bet money that the family of the "Pastry gun" kid is conservative, and that they were targeted for persecution the same way that the IRS targeted other conservatives. Nobody has to conspire to do this - libs just do it naturally.

I bet that some scum-sucking attorney could make a huge pile of money by suing on behalf of all the kids who were victimized this way, taking 30% off the top, and letting what was left after expenses trickle down to the families, who would probably recover enough to buy a soda, and maybe some fries.

Doesn't sound like much, but think how sweet those fries will taste, knowing that some bureaucrat is crying over lost C.O.L.A. raises.

I'm sure that the People's Republic of Massachusetts views the loss of Beretta's jobs in the same manner that my grandfather's generation viewed the loss of gangster jobs in their community after the repeal of prohibition. The loss of criminals, however, who moved out of state after the institution of "three strikes", however was an unsurmountable loss as the dependence of the people on the state for safety is lessened. THAT loss could only be made up by mighty effort by the media to convince the nation that murders were going up when they were really going down.
