When life gives you lemons…

UPDATE FROM CHRISSY:

The first time I read about cops shutting down a child’s lemonade stand, I hoped that it was just an isolated event. Alas, no such luck. Lately there has been a positive epidemic of children’s lemonade stands being shut down by local authorities/agents of the nanny state:

In Midway, Georgia, police shut down a lemonade stand because the little girls operating it lacked licenses and permits that would have cost them hundreds of dollars.

In Appleton, Wisconsin, two little girls who had run a profitable lemonade and cookie business for several summers were informed that they could no longer do so, due to a new ordinance passed by the Appleton city council.

In Montgomery County, Maryland, some children were fined $500 for operating a lemonade stand without a license. They were attempting to raise money for research to cure pediatric cancer. (The fine was eventually waived.)

In Coralville, Iowa, police shut down several lemonade stands because the children operating them did not have the required permit, which carried a $400 price tag.

In Portland, Oregon, a 7-year-old girl’s lemonade stand was shut down by county health inspectors because she didn’t have a restaurant license.

And on and on. In response to this insanity, Robert Fernandes of Stewartsville, New Jersey has proclaimed Saturday, August 20 Lemonade Freedom Day. Fernandes is encouraging children across the country to engage in acts of peaceful civil disobedience, by setting up lemonade stands and selling lemonade without first obtaining the permission of the nanny state. Here’s the promo video:

Because I admire entrepreneurial spirit in children, I never pass by a kid’s lemonade stand without stopping to make a purchase — even if I’m running late, even if I’m not thirsty, and even if I suspect that the “lemonade” in question may be a little on the warm side and was probably made from a jar of artificially-flavored powdered drink mix from the local discount store. That’s how strongly I feel about cheering on kids who are attempting to become little capitalists. If they learn the fundamentals of running a successful business, there will be plenty of time for them later to learn how to make really good lemonade. (I’ll be happy to share my recipe with them when the time comes.)

Abortion in the Hood

In Washington, D.C. for every 100 black babies born alive, 165 are aborted … with the approval of black leaders. But now, blacks are stepping up to stop the genocide. AbortionInTheHood, the Restoration Project and the National Black Pro-life Union are launching a billboard campaign in downtown Atlanta. They’ve also got videos up at YouTube.

ABC News is griping that “President Obama is catching flack for doing something tens of millions of Americans do every summer: going on vacation.” Uh. Not so much. According to a recent Marist Poll, fewer people are taking time off this summer than at any time in the last decade. Let me guess why. Could it be the Obam-economy, sky high gas prices and record-breaking unemployment?

Who’s your master now?

The Democratic Party dumbs people down, keeps them stupid, keeps them poor, keeps them dependent, all in the name of compassion.  It’s one of the most amazing hoaxes and frauds that’s ever been achieved.  And they’ve been getting away with it for 50 years. Nothing changes, but people keep voting for them out of fear. Democrats scare them to death about what Conservatives supposedly are all about, what we will do if given the chance. But the real compassion to be found in this country is among Conservatives, because we really love this country and want everyone pursuing their dreams.  (Excerpts from Rush Limbaugh, 8-18-11)
