Portland Health Inspectors Shutter 7-Year-Old's Lemonade Stand

"After 20 minutes, a 'lady with a clipboard' came over and asked for their license. When Fife explained they didn't have one, the woman told them they would need to leave or possibly face a $500 fine"

"Technically, any lemonade stand -- even one on your front lawn -- must be licensed under state law, said Eric Pippert, the food-borne illness prevention program manager for the state's public health division."

"'When you go to a public event and set up shop, you're suddenly engaging in commerce,' he said. 'The fact that you're small-scale I don't think is relevant.'

"Kawaguchi, who oversees the two county inspectors involved, said they must be fair and consistent in their monitoring, no matter the age of the person. 'Our role is to protect the public,' he said.".

No, Mr. Kawaguchi's and his goons' role is to harass the public, and if the slave happens to be a 7-year-old girl trying to earn extra money for the summer by being an entrepreneurial American, the old-fashioned way, the slave must be stopped. So either she has to buy a $120 license from the slavemasters or continue operating and pay a %500 fine. It's a no-win situation for the poor girl. At 50 cents per cup it would take her a long time to start making a profit after shelling out $120 from her non-existent bank account.

There are millions of lady-with-a-clipboard government types pervading every area of our society. Think of the revelation just last month that the globalists employ nearly 900,000 private spies with highest level security clearance in order to snoop on all of you and record all your activities. And if you have the audacity to step outside the boundaries in which the government confines you, by selling lemonade on your own yard, for example, you are instantaneously squashed by the system like the insect they think you are.

I say the family should try again next weekend, only this time have a group of neighbors and friends surrounding the stand with baseball bats. But not in an aggressive posture, of course. They should simply be there to inspect the ladies with clipboards, to make sure, for instance, that they are not bearing communicable disease. The inspectors do not like being themselves inspected. And they are obviously incapable of introspection or they would recognize themselves for the tiny, power-tripping vermin they are.
