Zero Tolerance

A lovely sentiment. It has become an new "catch" word since the tragedy at Va. Tech. It seems some are calling for this concept to deal with the prob of guns. Well they used it to deal with drugs and that went really well, huh? (Sarcasm intended).

Zero Tolerance is a fascist word, I mean Hitler had a zero tolerance and we see where that went. The use of the term solves NO problems. It is a claim used by whoever, to indicate the formulation of a policy when in reality nothing is solved. Example? Try Drugs! It is a way to give lip sevice to a problem while ignoring it. It is a nonsolution to give the appearance that one is tough on the problem and will do something. All it does is allow the entity to give the impression that something is to be done; while it is ignored.

Anytime you hear the term "zero tolerance" just remeber it is a steaming pile of crap that is used to impress the mindless.
