    Thanks for the laugh...

    I think the location was what got the whole thing started. Yes I saw where the county officials apologized and stated the intent of the law, but the health officer had to make an on the spot call, not wait on a ruling from the council. What if the health officer let the little girl continue to sell lemonade at the fair and Monday morning the county wanted to fire him for not doing his job of enforcing health code violations?

    There was recently a big charity drive and there were lemonade stands all over my little podunk burg. Of course they were all on front lawns (no malls, grocery stores, etc.) and everybody knew what they were about. No problems, some even got their pictures on the front page of the community paper...LOL

    I think it should be reversed....

    Week 1 - Libs pool their resources. "Neo-cons" does the same.
    Week 2 - Libs and "Neo-cons" consumed most of their resources. "Neo-cons" start foraging for new supplies. Libs start demanding "Neo-cons" to share their own supplies with the libs in the name of social equality or social justice, whichever is catchier.
    Week 3 - There was no week 3 because the Libs sued the "Neo-cons" and the tv show production studios for inhumane practices or whatever they can come up of....

    I'm reminded of a world simulation game/study that was done. Players would run simulated nations and have all sorts of control over financial policy, foreign trade, military action, etc. Before the game, players were given a test. People scoring high on the right-wing authoritarian scale in one group, people low on the scale in another. The "liberal" group worked out pretty well. Lots of people died in Africa from starvation, but eventually resources were distributed properly and things were relatively stable.

    The high-RWA group obliterated the planet in a global thermonuclear war.

    Common sense? get real, this is Obama's America (you know, the one with 57 States), you expect common sense to be applied.

    Who in turn, point their crooked finger and say...it’s the fault of the bush misadministration.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Who blames it on Clinton, who blames it on Bush Sr, who blames it on Carter. (can't blame anything on Reagan, he's conservative Jesus!)
