    God knows?

    They shake in their boots at posters and flags as it is. Torches and pitchforks might just make them go nuclear on our butts. :eek:

    That said, I've been feelin' good lately (though this could be the beer talking)...

    "Big(er) Government" has control of the WH, Congress and most of the courts and yet, to me, it feels like the pillars are shaking underneath all their feet like never before in my lifetime.

    Whoa now all you overreactionaries (yes, I just made that word up deal with it). You are missing the point.

    Under the new and enlightened Obama government, we are trying to promote fairness and equality.

    Thus, would it be fair if we allowed that little girl to run her lemonade stand, UNLICENSED lemonade stand I might add, and not pay her fair share in taxes???? I mean lets say she collects $1 a cup. And sells 50 cups a weekend. Thats $50 X 4 weekends a month, $200. Thats about $20 a month in lost taxes, $240 a year. Now, lets say we allow 1 million little kids in America to run their own stands. Thats $240,000,000 a year they are cheating the government out of. Over the 10 year span of their childhood from 5 years old to 15, that would be $2.4 billion dollars in uncollected tax revenue the Obama administration would be cheated out of, state governments who have union pensions to pay would be cheated out of, and local governments with green projects to build would be cheated out of.

    Without the brave government officials cracking down on these illegal capitalist operations, these young right wing greed mongers would not be paying their fair share of taxes now would they? I mean, take that into account, then multiply that for the bake sales and car washes they are scheming the government out of taxes for, and hey, we got a major problem. Thankfully, leftists governments are taking action to right the wrongs of these capitalist piglets.

    Right?

    That little witch and her lemonade stand... she's just the type that will grow up into a (so called) responsible young teen and start some unlicenced babysitting for family friends. Who knows? She could have a brother out somewhere right now "unregulatedly" mowing some old lady's lawn. (and shoveling snow this winter)

    Tax wise and legal wise Babysitters must be reported to the IRS by the Parents of the children they watch. If they do not they can not claim the child care payments for tax purposes. The old rule when I last checked was if you allow someone to watch your kids 3 or more times you must report what you paid to them with their social security numbers.
