Big Gov Shuts Down Child's Lemonade Stand Lacking $120 License... Morons

This child here is the absolute perfect 'poster child' for the anti big government movement and Tea party agenda.

When a child in THIS country of all places in the world can't do the very first thing most American children do to earn their first money, we've left the ranch for good. Red tape and bureaucratic BS has taken the place for common sense everywhere we turn, be it lemonade stands to Mosques on ground zero.

God help us. (how many times before he says "I heard you the last 100 times, I keep telling ya, all it's up to you people, not me...")

Portland lemonade stand runs into health inspectors, needs $120 license to operate |

"It's hardly unusual to hear small-business owners gripe about licensing requirements or complain that heavy-handed regulations are driving them into the red.

So when Multnomah County shut down an enterprise last week for operating without a license, you might just sigh and say, there they go again.

Except this entrepreneur was a 7-year-old named Julie Murphy. Her business was a lemonade stand at the Last Thursday monthly art fair in Northeast Portland. The government regulation she violated? Failing to get a $120 temporary restaurant license.

Turns out that kids' lemonade stands -- those constants of summertime -- are supposed to get a permit in Oregon, particularly at big events that happen to be patrolled regularly by county health inspectors.

'I understand the reason behind what they're doing and it's a neighborhood event, and they're trying to generate revenue,' said Jon Kawaguchi, environmental health supervisor for the Multnomah County Health Department. 'But we still need to put the public's health first.'continued at OregonLive.com:
UPDATED FRIDAY as you knew damn well the liberal loon government there in OR would be apologizing almost immediately, but our practice here is not to accept them because they're so frequent they've become useless> They wore out the 'apology' just like they've worn out the word "racist" and the concept of 'racism' for that matter.

    HO..LY....SH*T!!!!! I swear I can NOT wake up from this nightmare. The insanity of Government bureaucrats.

  2. It's just never ending madness. I can't understand how these people support all this. I'm sorry to sound selfish but I'm glad I don't have kids, but I'm fighting this crap anyways. It's diametric opposite of what we had growing up. It's like real live Sodom and Gomorrah.

  3. thanks for tweeting btw sir. :)

    Ray, if they had approached my kids when they were young selling Lemonade, I swear they would have been eating a knuckle sandwich. 
    OR Maybe it was because this child wasn't selling liberal Kool-Aid.  :-D

    My pleasure. This was just to good not to tweet, as most of your post are.

  6. We had lemonade stands all over our neighborhood this summer. Remember the good old days of bake sales? Gone forever! Hey, just noticed your Conservative Identity. That's a good one!

  7. Ray, you are right on to cover this one. When we have roaming bureaucrats harassing innocent kids trying to sell lemonade for heaven's sake we need to redirect our tax dollars to responsible bureaucrats like myself 8-)

  8. I blame Obama for this.  Why not?  He blames Bush for all his troubles! 8-)

  9. What another shitty way to crush the innocence of children.  I remember my days as a paramedic stopping at lemonade stands with the ambulance and giving the kids $5 for a glass of lemonade.  It was so cool to watch their faces.  No license, permits or political bullshit, just a wonderful lemonade stand.  Unbelievable and sad...

  10. Yea it's the first foray into earning money, the lemonade stand .....In Obama's world crackhouses are ok but lemonade stands aren't.

  11. They come out hours later like typical liberals and apologize but as I've said again and again all over the net, liberals apologize so much they're apologies don't mean anything anymore. :( )

  12. He is the dickless suitless clotheless emporer Katie.

  13. Typical liberal world of rules and regs they don't have to follow but everyone else does. F them and the homowagon they all rode in on.

  14. That's nice, thanks. Wish more felt that way.  ;)

  15. Hi Ray, this is so sad for that cute little girl.  I had a lemonade stand when I was young.

    Well, at least her sorrow now publicizes how vile and stupid these lefties are.
    She will probably get some nice toys or other stuff from conservatives, while
    helping to get the word out on obummer's awful policies.

    PS:  You didn't miss much at the Chicago Protest, it would have been a nightmare to drive down there!
    I'm glad you liked my post, thanks for the great comment.

  16. Me and my bro sold Kool aid and candy.....our neighborhood was like a Rockwell painting...

    It looked surprisingly non liberal, I thought there would be thousands of  Obama worshiper's there. There weren't huh? That must of been a blow to Barry's ego..just to see white protesting Tea Partiers right in Chicago...lolol :)

    I'm gonna try to make some of these things towards the fall, I just can't deal with 100 degree heat and lots of walking combined still. I've sat on the sidelines for most of this downfall of the country so I'm ready to get out there more.

    I'm thinking of going to see Dennis Miller at the Chicago theater coming in September, and there's some other cool stuff coming up soon. Hopefully a great election as well.

  17. Like everything sacred in America, it means nothing to the Halfrican wonderboy, he had a crappy childhood so he doesn't mind seeing others suffer the same fate thanks to his Muslim loving and chasing Momma.

  18. Tell me how you really feel Ray :-D


Some rules: No leftwing attacks nor Obama supporters so don't waste you're time & especially mine. All 99% others welcome to have your say.
