    So then maybe she pays the licence, gets inspected, and THEN puts in the dog poo?

    Sorry, don't see your point.

    And in that case, (hypothetically) went out and got the $120 license... and still made chilli with dog ****... how is that protecting the public? Paying for a piece of paper does not guarantee anything, it's simply paying the local government to sell something. What everyone's missing here is that clip board lady wasn't testing the lemonade - she was only checking for bureaucratic paperwork and money was paid. This isn't about health safety, it's about money.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Was samsmart being serious, did anyone figure that out? I just think it was stupid of her to do a lemonade stand (and for her parents to let her set herself up like that) but whats wrong with a kid making some money. I guess you think kids should get taxed when they go mow lawns in the neighborhood too?
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    I guess you support tax evasion?

    Why do you hate America?

    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Cool Re: Portland lemonade stand runs into health inspectors, needs $120 license to operat

    a very small and very interesting story

    politics is both big and small, it's whatever hits the gut

    just another example of that govt-knows-best attitude that is totally out of control these days and has so many americans ready to puke

    where's the judgement, where's the humanity?

    Seriously? Do you actually believe the government expected to get the money from the kid? The license fee discourages unsafe food outlets.

    $120 isn't going to discourage anyone from doing anything.
    You could get that much by doing easier bad stuff than selling unsafe food.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Do you REALLY want to know what some of those fast food cooks do to your food at those licensed and regulated establishments?
