    "N.Y. parents want to ban ice cream trucks

    Some parents in Brooklyn’s tony Park Slope neighborhood are trying to stop ice cream vendors from hawking their cold treats to kids in Prospect Park, according to the New York Post.

    For some parents getting their kids a cone come April is a tradition, but a few members of the Park Slope Parents online group just wish the ice cream trucks would go away. These parents are tired of listening to their children cry, scream and throw tantrums when they’re denied a sugary ice cream.

    “Two different people came into the actual playground with ice cream/Italian ice push carts. I was able to avoid it for a little while but eventually I left with a crying 4-year-old.”

    “When my kids see other kids get ice cream, they just start begging me. I just don’t think these are the fights we should be having.”

    Yeah, I've known several people who have been personally hurt by the LIBERAL PICKUP TRUCK BAN in this country.

    Some of them can hardly talk about it years later.

    Actually, yes.

    Also, it's spelled abstinence.

    LOL, freaking coveting libtard mindset. If my kids were to beg like that for something like that, I'd have to punish them for being like a parasite. When I was a child, I could have ice creamy any fucking time I pleased, I was employed, I had two paper routes. I had to buy my own cloths too if I didn't want to wear hand-me-downs. Gawd, every non-necessity I owned as a child was either a holiday gift or something I had to work for.

    Gawd, you libtards out there sure are retarded. Hopeless losers..

    Liberals are so fragile they now ban words because it may offend their sensibilities and create un repairable damage. When I was a kid, we just called them sissies. Apparently they all grew up and never grew out of it.

    City avoids placing taboo topics (that kids may actually know about) on public school exams - NYPOST.com

    50 words banned in "PC" school tests. Including:


    Here's the full list of topics that if included on city exams would “probably cause a selection to be deemed unacceptable by the New York City Department of Education”:

    Abuse (physical, sexual, emotional, or psychological)

    Alcohol (beer and liquor), tobacco, or drugs

    Birthdays

    Bodily functions

    Cancer (and other diseases)

    Catastrophes/disasters (tsunamis and hurricanes)

    Celebrities

    Children dealing with serious issues

    Cigarettes (and other smoking paraphernalia)

    Computers in the home (acceptable in a school or public library setting)

    Crime

    Creatures from outer space


    Dancing (ballet is acceptable)

    Death and disease

    Dinosaurs and prehistoric times

    Divorce

    Evolution

    Expensive gifts, vacations, and prizes

    Gambling involving money

    Geological history

    Halloween

    Homelessness

    Holidays

    Homes with swimming pools

    Hunting

    In-depth discussions of sports that require prior knowledge

    Junk food

    Loss of employment

    Movies

    Nuclear weapons

    Occult topics (i.e. fortune-telling)

    Parapsychology

    Politics

    Pornography

    Poverty

    Rap music

    Religion

    Religious holidays and festivals (including but not limited to Christmas, Yom Kippur, and Ramadan)

    Rock-and-Roll music

    Running away

    Sex

    Slavery

    Terrorism

    Television and video games (excessive use)

    Traumatic material (including material that may be particularly upsetting such as animal shelters)

    Vermin (rats and roaches)

    Violence

    War and bloodshed

    Weapons (guns, knives, etc.)

    Witchcraft, sorcery, etc.
