are you for real?? where the hell did you grow up? kids selling lemonade is a time honored american tradition. sure alot of bad things CAN happen, and I certainly am leary of what I eat all the time. but still, this is something kids have been doing since forever.

there is alot of things we USED to do in this country that all of the sudden is off limits, get a grip people. if yall are soo worried about potentially getting poisoned by things you ingest, start with your government's lax standing on regulations within the food industry.

yes, you germans always know best how other peoples should or shouldn't breed......

for someone that claims a want for the future-like society of star trek, you tend to have a pissy disposition. then again maybe you're a klingon.

I think the astronomical increase in law suits plays the biggest part in the what we see in societies increasing permits and restrictions etc. It is much easier to just stop something altogether like it is nice to be able to sell lemonade on the street but is it really necessary? What happens is when someone gets sick they look to sue whoever is the next rung up on the financial ladder just to get more money. It's a double edged sword though because some lawsuits are good ways to protect repeats of bad practices like in restaurants or similar.

Same for insurance. Look at helmet laws for motorcycles. If a person chooses to ride a motorcycle with no helmet and they get into an accident the chance of injuries and death increases. If the person not wearing the helmet had no recourse to be compensated or covered by insurance for the injuries because they did not wear a helmet you can be fairly certain they would wear a helmet. The easiest way to protect yourself and to avoid the cost the insurance company has to pay because you decided to not wear a helmet is to pass a law making it mandatory to wear helmets. Back to the lemonade, you sell lemonade on my property and i allow it someone gets sick they are not going to sue the lemonade seller because they have no money.

Well, its nice to see that some people can afford the time, expenses and possible loss of a job to go out and do things like this, knowing you may be arrested by these under achieving code enforcers.

All the crazy things going on in America only? Lets see, what about the week long riots in England?
Or how about the English Govt putting cameras into peoples homes. I actually believe that England was one giant social experiment, where they learned how far they can push the citizens (pretty damn far btw) and now its being done here. (US)
I admit that my country is going to hell but I believe England made it there before we did

...just because you buy lemonade from a cute little kid - that doesnt mean he didnt dig a big ol' snotty bugger out of his nose that accidentally ended up in the koolaid jug...




Licensing protects and prevents nothing.

Having/obtaining a license does not prevent anyone from lacing any product with poison, drugs, or any unsavory or unsanitary thing.

No. These are the real criminals, apparently.


Meanwhile Wallstreet bankers are free to destroy the country, but these lemonaid sellers must be arrested!

And Just how does a "Venders license." stop this from happening, hell it happens all the time in my home town, two of the news stations have started special segments on "bad/dirty/unsafe" restaurant and food stores. So tell me how this venders license stops this, please?

If you need a reason to doubt the government's official story about 9/11, here it is, people.

Terrorism was the original pretext that the government used, to get people to the point where they'd be willing to put up with crap like this. First you claim that you need special exceptions for the "terrorists," and before you know it, the public are used to watching you taser, bash, torture, and lock up anyone you feel like.

This is the security that anyone who believes the government's story on 9/11, has traded their freedom for. Feeling safe yet?

Having standards about food hygeine is fine. I do myself. However, part of at least my own definition of responsible adulthood, is exercising the responsibility of policing your own standards yourself, rather than expecting the state to do it for you.

Anyone who believes that actions like these by the government, are remotely justifiable, does not deserve any form of freedom; and they also, ultimately, will not have it.

If the Lemonade selling felons..ahem were of a minority background or if they were illegal aliens, would they have been arrested? I'll say, 95% no they would not have even been bothered. Now that Obama has given a free pass to illegals, maybe 97% chance of no arrest.
