You need permits for everything, remember that the "state is god" in socialism.

Re: Cops shut down the lemonade stand of a 7-year-old
This little girl had her lemonade stand closed down by “The Man.” Apparently cops told her that she needed a permit to sell lemonade at her stand… and we wonder why Capitalism is struggling in this country.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 938658


'capitalism' is not struggling in your country.

a little kid from the bottom rung of the society is not 'capitalism'.

she is a kid with a lemonade stand.

and, she is not permitted to have a lemonade stand, precisely because of capitalism :

big corporations do not want anyone messing with them. you either need to be a corporation and play by their rules, or, else.

therefore, they bribed their agents into governments and put out all those laws that are pro-corporations.

IF, there was no government, there would be armed 'representatives' of those corporations to shut that stand down. and no, you, as a neighborhood, couldnt take up arms and come up against them and tell them to 'get out of your property', because a corporation would be able to afford many more men, better guns, and better training than you neighborhood 'militia'.

it is capitalism in its finest form - the stronger outdoes the weak. its simple as that. with, or without any government.

Oh come on this is ridiculous. Did you see that highway intersection? It's unsafe to have anyone set up a stand there, with no curb there (as someone said), let alone a 7 year old kid.

What if they had let this continue, and she got hit by a car? Then there would be real outrage.

Lemonade contains aspharmatane.. which is why I don't drink it, so she shouldn't be selling or drinking it anyway, it's bad for her teeth.. besides.. she ought to have been selling vodka alcopops & cider instead.. which is what girls her age on council estates do here in the UK. (not kiddin..!)

Aside from that.. that's too much, very 'mean' to pick on a wee girl like that, she only wanted to go to Disneyland.
She's been picked on by the big tall men with apples.. the blue meanies..! Need a permit to do 'anything' these days! pfft..!

Re: Cops shut down the lemonade stand of a 7-year-old
how did we get here ?


Right idea totaly stupid place to implement.

Dumb ass father lets his third grade daughter sell lemonade in a fucking dangerous intersection....he's an asshole.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 936831

My same thoughts.

He should’ve respected the law. If someone got hurt, who’s at fault then? Surely not Dad for putting them in a dangerous intersection. Fighting the law and getting free tickets, what does that teach the kids?
I had a neighbor she had two girls about five and seven. The mom was walking around the neighborhood putting fliers in people’s mailboxes for yard work for the kids. She was just hoping for a donation because the children are too small to physically do the work.

Fair doos..
So how does one make their own lemonade? How many lemons are needed for the average bottle, what water is needed.. & how to make it fizzy (a soda stream machine thingy?!).. must have a go at that.. I quite miss lemonade. Dunno if you lot get this in America.. but I love a bottle of Dandelion & Burdock lemonade.. it's lovely in a glass topped with ice-cream & a wafer.. Mmmm... delicious..!!! Used to only get it up north, but have seen it being sold down here in London now. Great!

The only thing mean is he father. Making his daughter pay for a disneyland vacation. Approving of her selling lemonade at a busy intersection to earn more money. There's nothing wrong with what the city did, no 7 year old should sell lemonade at dangerous intersections.

Re: Cops shut down the lemonade stand of a 7-year-old
You people just don't get it do you?

When you sell something you make it can't legitimately be taxed. Oh, I know you'll all say, "But! But..."

The fact is, when you make something you can't be taxed and it gets under the skin of the establishment when a little girl like this doesn't have enough baggage to be threatened into taxation.

Times are changing. When people get sick of this conjobullshit that we call government and a few code enforcement people end up either bloodied, bruised or in the morge, things will change, not until. When people get enough backbone to actually stand up and read the law (The Constitution, the supreme law of the land) and claim their common law rights and then to enforce it, the government will just keep growing.

If you let it happen, it just continues. Simply, it is assault. We don't see it like that cause we've taken it up the rear for so long, we don't know any better.

Sell your own stuff on your own paid off land. Tell code enforcement to go screw themselves but to do it privately because, after all, there are CODES for that ALSO!

The enemy of the people has become the government. It must be stopped.

Listen, cops are sheep too and they don't always like their orders.

If people don't like this, get rid of your representatives, mayor, governor. Tell them to go home. Someone with a brain can replace them.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 985628


So many of you are sheople! Good God Almighty! It will be no wonder WTSHTF that you all will be begging at my door for a crumb!

Poor, poor ignorant sheople.

The reason code enforcement and the police don't treat you with respect is because they have no reason to. Government doesn't understand anything but force. Force of will and force of arms will command respect. All you people do is worry about safety and "respect of the law". Well, I respect law, common law, that law which is God given. I do not respect administrative statues and the puke that comes with it. There is only the law, which is common law. The rest of you deluded people can continue to follow your legalities. They are not law. They are simply corporate rules. WTSHTF there will be law, common law, REAL law. We could have it now but most of you are too weak of mind to realize it.

Buy your lemonade at the store and shut up.

Re: Cops shut down the lemonade stand of a 7-year-old
I think the parents are wrong here.
Like the reporter said, if the stand had been in the front yard ( like most normal kids do), wouldn't have been a problem.
It's a shame that the parents think it's alright to put their kid around all that traffic, exposing her to exhaust fumes, and possibly being hurt by a car that had a wreck, or ran the light.
It was an awful place for them to be!
I think the kid's dad is just a cheapskate that didn't want to pay for the trip himself...didn't want to have to pay for a permit for a temp. stand in a better location....just using his kid to try and skate around everything.
I can't believe people don't see thru his sham...making a public spectacle of it all..putting the kid thru all this..
He's teaching her a bad lesson...that rules are for other people...and that it's alright to find a way to get around them, in the pursuit of money.
Also, if you make a big enough scene, people will give you what you want.
Good way to raise a lil deviant there..
