    Another stupid loophole in a law. This little girl shouldn't have to pay for a temporary license. Like most business licenses there should be a minimum daily income to require the license.

    This isn't liberalism or conservatism, it is bureaucracy.

    Read the link I posted about the apology: Apology after girl's lemonade stand shut down - Yahoo! News

    A county council member explains the law was intended to be used differently than it was.

I'm not asking the guy selling me the corn if he used pesticides or what kind of corn it is, or the method, or wanting him to show me a business license for selling some corn, I just want some damn corn.
    Maybe. Until you catch salmonella and die. As does your wife. And then your kids. And then all the other people who bought peanuts from that guy. When that happens, the authorities are very much going to want to know who sold those contaminated peanuts, so at the very least they can stop the tainted peanuts from being sold and risking the lives of others.

    Boiled peanuts are boiled in salt water to make them salty, soft and delicious. Salt kills bacteria. In my 25 years of living, never have I once heard of this happening. Btw, ever watch "Monk"?

    Nope. But there was a peanut recall in January of 2009 because of salmonella. And while that may in particular may have been a bad example, I was trying to point out the virtues of having all vendors, whether they be adult or child, be licensed. While it may not prevent the spread of some type of illness, it can aid in the back-tracking of an illness.

    I see it playing out this way:

    Week 1 - Neo-cons eat most of their food supplies.
    Week 3 - Hungry for food, Neo-cons device a plan to attack and then feast upon the strongest of Liberals.
    Week 4 - They prepare their weapons and anticipate being greeted as liberators by the weakest of the Liberals.
    Week 6 - They finally attack and though initially seem to have the upper hand, they soon lose it and find themselves facing an increasingly popular insurgency.
    Week 10 - After 4 weeks of constant counter attacks by Liberals the Neo-Cons finally admit they made a horrible mistake and then proceed to leave the island. Thus allowing Conservatives(who for the past 9 weeks seem to have hidden in caves so as to not piss off Neo-Conservatives) to blame the Liberals for eating all the food.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
