That's really sweet of Country Time.

I can get behind a company who gives back with some common sense.

When life gives you Lemons...squeeze every ever-loving drop of juice you can....make lemonade and sell it hard....then dry those freaking seeds out plant them and SELL SOME while letting some grow big enough to give you MORE LEMONS which you then SELL.….lol....lemons are the gift that keeps on giving.

I never got to sell pecans. Not because we don't have any... they're everywhere! Mainly because after I got through spending a few minutes alone with them, they weren't there any more! I do dearly love me some pecans...

But back to topic...

There's a reason we have humans enforcing the law, humans presiding over the courts, and humans making the final decisions: there are always exceptions. Sure, a business in the city should get a permit, but if that business is a kid selling lemonade, is it really a big deal? The bigger deal is teaching the kid to skirt the law because the cop is here to shut you down, instead of teaching them how to operate a small business. Murder is a crime, too, but does that have to include self-defense? We actually have to have that excuse codified now!

I honestly don't think people realize the implications of their actions. Thinking is too much trouble... and because we would rather act like automatons instead of humans, our jobs are now being done by automatons instead of humans. How's that working out?

OK, rant time over... sorry...

You're wasting your time, Redneck. Mueller's all over this.

Don't you know that 32,000 of the 45,000 sealed indictments are for kids with lemonade stands?

It has to be collusion with the Russians and a porn star and the Trump campaign , right ?
I am with you there...

I remember back when....
Dad purchased what we in the South called a "fruit stand" .
Vegetables and fruits from the garden and homemade lemonade made by Mom and Grandma.
I ran it as Dad was at work.
Made a whole lot of money during the Spring-Fall months
And not one complaint.
Even had most of the City and County government stop in on a regular basis.

Folks have gotten plumb "rotten"

I’m so used to adding products to my boycott list lately, I don’t remember where I put my “to purchase” list.

I think I'm gonna go buy me some country time lemonaide!


Exactly... You think they did this out of the kindness of their hearts? You think CHik fil a did the whole gay thing because they really do not support gay people? Chik filet made a killing after that and this company will now as well. Just saying. Its nice and all but they are doing it for money.
It's a clever market strategy nothing more.

I occasionally buy lemonaide from kids who sell it in front of their homes. So far I have not heard of too many problems with this around here, but I suppose it will become the norm if it is not addressed. It is a way for kids to earn a little money, I think it is a good thing. Although, I did buy lemonaide one time from some kids with sand in the cup from sand blowing around. It didn't kill me but I told the kids to keep the cups upside down on the table so it would not happen.

This attitude is why we don't see these gestures all too often.

This... this right here is the reason we are having any economic issues.

Let me come at this from another angle... why would you ever work for someone? Don't you know that they are using you to make money? Why would you give them that satisfaction?

The very idea that companies don't deserve to make a profit because they are companies is the single most ludicrous thing I can imagine. You are advocating a country that has no business whatsoever, a country of extreme poverty where the people starve to death in the streets. You are calling for a society without even the necessities of life... why? Because someone might make a dollar and be able to afford food.

Yes, they will get marketing off of this. News flash: they will get marketing one way or the other, or they will close and everyone that works there will be out of a job. The choice is not whether or not they get to make a profit off this, it is what would you rather see? Kids protected from a government run amok, or more money paid to big advertising firms so somebody making 6 digits can make another silly commercial to interrupt your entertainment?

Ridiculous...

I just thought of something....can anyone verify if the kids who have been slapped with fines were just regular kids with a little handmade sign and box or table in the front yard or more than well to do kids with full major big bucks banking by their parents?

I seem to remember one article they had more than just a humble set up and it looked very professional (custom printed signs and a really nice professional stand on the sidewalk in a well to do neighborhood) but I can't seem to find any reference to it anymore.

Everything I can find shows the traditional humble lemonade stand for their photos.

Just curious, as I seem to remember something to the contrary from years ago.

For goodness sakes we can not let the children learn that they might have control over their own destiny!
How will they ever fall into line with government control over their lives and be comfortable with it?
Shut down those unregulated lemonade stands for crying out loud!
And mowing lawns? Why at the minimum the young uns must be insured and bonded! We are not a nation of savages!
Wow, adults need to get a handle on those kids before they develop hope and ambition and motivation, and wind up not in jail or on the street or living at home until they are 40. Hell, we don't want to change the path of the special one that is thinking of shooting up his school!
Government does not solve problems, government is the problem!

You do the maths. The links are clear!

It's good to see a company doing something like this.
Hell, even though it will be seen as a marketing ploy, at least they are doing some good.

Check this out:
'They're my superheroes': Boy, 6, serves lemonade and doughnuts to police

On Friday, about 100 police officers from 10 different police stations across two states showed up to his house in Kansas City, Kansas, where he'd set up a table complete with balloons, ice, cups, lemonade and various kinds of doughnuts. They greeted him with fist bumps and handshakes.

"I want to be nice to police officers," Oliver said. "They're my superheroes."
