Government thinks you are stupid…


Government is out of control.  They spend too much and over-regulate too much.  They try to get us to change our behaviors with the bogus “climate change” threat. They think we are stoopid.  And they trample on the entrepreneurial spirit of young children.  Remember the post I did on LA Time writer Nicolas A. Martin and how he and his daughter encountered the barrage of government regulations when they tried to participate in National Lemonade Day?  The government is at it again in Iowa.  And this time they brought in the police.

Iowa Police Shut Down 4-Year-Old’s Lemonade Stand

Fox News: Police closed down a lemonade stand in Coralville, Iowa telling its 4-year-old operator and her dad that she didn’t have a permit.
Cedar Rapids television station KGAN reports that an officer told Abigail Krutsinger’s dad on Friday that she couldn’t run the stand as RAGBRAI bicyclers poured into Coralville. RAGBRAI is The Des Moines Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, which ended Saturday. The city ordinance says food vendors have to apply for a permit and get a health inspection.
Abigail’s dad, Dustin Krutsinger, says the ordinance and its enforcers are going too far if they force a 4-year-old to abandon her lemonade stand. The city said it was enforcing the ordinance for health reasons, because people have gotten sick from food and drink they got during RAGBRAI.
Just the other night two boys in my condo complex were selling lemonade.  I bought a cup and chose not to drink it.  Didn’t bother me to give the kids a couple of coins.  Most people probably do the same thing.  And if they choose to drink the lemonade, I’m sure they are quite aware that it may not have been prepared in the cleanest kitchen.  It’s the choice we make.  Stoopid government thinks they are smarter than you and you aren’t capable of making that decision on your own.

The secret is to have the children band together and open fifty (50) lemonade stands at the same time. Then, as the government shuts one down, open two more. This is the way the Liberals/Progressives do it and it works, of course, our government is run by the Liberals/Progressives so that helps their cause every time, until the voters decide enough is enough and send them packing! We need the edge for a change.

I survived my boys fingers in the lemonade just like I survived the cows tail whacking up-side -my-head when milking (although I did have to throw out that bucket of milk when she stepped in it…that which hadn’t spilled anyway) and we survived all of that wholesome organic milk …
I’ll take my chances/freedom and they can keep their stupid rules.
I brake for lemonade stands and cute kids,lol’s…take the time to encourage these the youngest of my bothers and sisters.
