    This little incident is an excellent representation of what is wrong with our government today (at all levels) - and why people are sick of it.

    The bloody killjoys are on a crusade to suck the least bit of joy out of living one's life.

    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. ...

    Yup. And there will be hell to pay here about that. Really stupid action.

    Not quite as stupid as letting the oversight people get so corrupt that no rules were enforced and 11 men died, and the Gulf end up polluted with millions of gallon of oil. President Obama should have came down on these people early on. He did the right thing in firing his appointee for failure to start the cleansing process immediatly. The people at BP and the people at the MMS that let BP get away with the safety violations should all be facing negligent homicide charges.

    Often times I like libtards. Seriously, this one needs to be shot. Or beaten and fired. Pay the kid 1,000 fine payable out of the retards retirement account. Can we have officials who can use their brains.

    Apples Oranges. Your inability to see the difference between a lemonade stand and an oil well explains a lot.

    These illegals need to get the hell out of here if they don't like our nation of laws. Follow the laws or leave...

    You're right. That really does suck. Guess I'll scrap my plans to sell "Count Dracula's Bloody Lemonade" franchises to kids nationwide. Seriously, though. WTF is this country coming to?
