We’re doomed: Even in Texas you need a permit to operate a lemonade stand

The girls’ mother, Sandi Evans, said they went to try to get a Peddler’s Permit at City Hall, but found out they’d have to get licensed by the Rusk County Health Department before being allowed a Peddler’s Permit…

    No doubt the bureaucrats are proud of themselves.

    its what happens when people rat other people out to the authorities.

    The parents should organize a mass lemonade day for the whole town.

    Shove it right up their ass.

    “mother Bobbie Nelson had her kids’ lemonade stand shutdown as well. Police informed her that a permit would cost $400.”

    How many taxpayer dollars were spent keeping these dangerous criminals off the streets?

    • Frau Katze

      Way too much.

    They’ve got it all wrong. Don’t put kids out of business. Give them govt., grants to open stands, and pay their “employees.”

    Street urchins always out to beat the system no matter what it takes! They should be sentenced to 20 years at hard labor!

    It’s a lot easier for police to pick on and target little children opening up a lemonade stand than an aggressive pan handler on the street. The children at least are providing a useful service and are learning the basics of entrepreneurship unlike panhandlers who harass people for money for no service at all or worse dump dirty water on your car without the owners permission, wipe it off then expect a fee for it. The cops should leave the kids alone and go after the panhandlers.

      Good point.

    Only legals need permits to work.

    The girls should just rebrand their product “Gay-Lemonade” or “Trans-Lemonade”. Frame it as a civil rights issue, like everything else. Police wouldn’t touch them!
