Don’t Laugh – You Can Leave

I was just reading an article about a woman who is being jailed, for laughing. Crazy? Apparently, not if you laughed at the wrong person.

A lady laughed out loud at the confirmation hearing for Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The lady laughed right after a statement how Sessions “treating all Americans equally under the law is clear and well documented.” She just got sentenced to a year in jail. Read the original source article here.

— No Laughing Allowed —

Oh, but don’t you worry — it couldn’t happen to you…right?

Please, if you tend to spontaneously giggle, you might weigh the added risk and decide to live abroad for a few years.
