    Don't forget tax enforcement officials.

    Oh, take your BS somewhere else, try selling lemonade instead.

    This isn't liberalism, this is senseless bureaucracy, a crime which BOTH sides of the isle are guilty of.

    Except they had no intention of inspecting it.
    They just wanted her to pay a fee to sell lemonade for a day.

    Brillaint, just brilliant.. Sheesh!

    We had a garage sale (Yes I like garage saling and having them) at my home last month and my 3 older kids wanted to have a lemonaid stand. I thought it would be a good execise for them. I was surprised that they made $41 dollars. of course the $41 bucks went to silly bands, and ice cream, but hopefully the economic lesson wasn't lost on them.

    We can all go on about "public health," but a lot of times in life everybody, including government officials, just has to think, "Oh come the **** on!!" Firstly, she's making lemonade. Have we come to the point where we need a government offical holding your hand while you make freaking lemonade? You mix in water, ice, and powder. What does this bureaucrat think she's preparing, fugu? Secondly, this is a kid's lemonade stand. If you buy from a seven year old, honestly expecting quality, then you have bigger problems then the slim possibility that the kid switched Kool-Aid with rat poison.

    So sacrifice people's freedom because of the few that abuse it? Does it mean any unlicensed food vendor will purposely try to harm their customers/consumers? And does a license truly safeguard against these types of food contamination, accidental or intentional? Well until they get that working, I would advise not making that ridiculous law where people need to be licensed just to sell food. Mind as well make all those school potlucks licensed, food are being exchanged in a certain location and God knows what's on the tables each kid eats on.

    Big health code violations! No food temp regulators. No refigeration. Hell, not even a sanitary towel with sanitizers in a bucket of water that must be kept close at all times!!!!
