Vendor permits are a made up thing, but so is the money they would have gotten. It's all just a pooty money game these days.

Yeah, how is it going to help prepare these kids for the future if they have to learn about imaginary things like vendor permits?

lol cyborg I can see that completely. When you shout 'stop resisting' everything is legal. I think someone needs to put a spin on this phrase so it makes them look even worse when videos are posted of them shouting it 9 times in 4 seconds. I recommend a video of rape being depicted in the form of a PSA announcement.

Oh and the kids deserved to have it shut down. Seriously it stops becoming a harmless childhood thing and starts being annoying when it turns out like a fairground and packed to the brim with stupid vendors when they realize how much money they're making. It's a quality of life issue for the rest of the community. The car parking has no comparison what-so-ever here this reporter needs to be removed from their position.

They never fine the illegals near my house that sell fruit and shaved ice. I only care if they need a permit to cook "Raw" or food that can carry certain bacteria if not stored at correct temperatures. Usually the city will shut them down, but who exactly do they fine?

Big government, even on a small scale, is so f*cked up.

Can't risk having these kids walk away with a positive spin on capitalism, can we?

Thank goodness the government is taking such good care of us.

I'm glad my tax dollars are being put to good use.

This is almost as useful as the USDA going after magicians who use rabbits in their act (true story).

I think that the parents should have gotten permission first. If they had asked instead of just showed up, then they would have known about the license needed. It doesn't matter that the money was for charity; you can't just show up selling stuff on property that isn't yours and expect it to be okay. Also, the sign they have says that only 50% of the money will go to charity. :/

No, it just worked too well.

Bureaucrats have always been out to exploit certain areas of the law for financial gain, this is no different.

Is it wrong? Absolutely; are they able to do it? Again, absolutely. Should he? No, because he's a jerk for doing it.

Good. I agree with this. There shouldn't be any pool tables outside during winter. That fine was well deserved. I think they got off lucky, in my home town they would have been jailed for up to 10 months.
Where do you even get outdoor pool cues???
Drew Carrey is to blame!

freddyferret come on, that is just taking it way too far. The guy is doing his job, if the adults supervising the stand knew the law maybe they wouldn't get fined. Don't know if he gave them a warning since those women seemed very bitchy about the whole situation and seemed determine not to leave. Feel bad for the kids but I doubt they are emotionally scared for life because the big bad inspector wouldn't let them sell lemonade. There are other ways to raise money for causes like cancer.

Total. F u c k i n g. Douchebag. I seriously hope someone finds that inspector and beats him so bad that he is a deformed vegetable for the rest of his pathetic life. What an ass. Tell them they have to stop, don't be a complete dick and fine them. They were raising money for cancer, I hope he gets it and dies painfully from it. People who mess with kids should die the worst possible death.

I remember in college that we had to get a one day certificate from the health department to sell hot links. This included a quick lesson on proper temperatures and serving, as well as money handling (don't want the cook to also take the filthy money). This protects our customers as well as ourselves. A $300 permit to make over $4,000? That is not a bad ROI.

Heh! Nice, a couple of things coming up here...

$500 fine for selling lemonade? There is the whole vender's permit thing. Such a permit grants rights, and imparts responsibilities, otherwise anyone could sell anything for any reason. Makes sense. Judging by the size of their lemonade operation, they should have had one, although they also should have been warned before being fined. They probably didn't know about the permit thing.

What kind of lazy fool do you have to be to pay $60 to not take a short shuttle ride to this event.

What sort of event attracts this much attention? Can there really be that many golf-crazies?

Finally... $56k/yr for college? I've known this for years, but your higher learning just plain sucks America. I'll admit that you do have quality, but the value is laughable. Universities are a business, and they have formed a monopoly on you.

drating country is drated up. Plain and simple. Our fine/summon/jailing goverment has eaten this countries spirit out with this kind of bullpoo. Lemondade stands are the most AMERICAN thing a child can do. Thus fining them is unamerican.

Think about that for a second. (YOU, cannot spend your own money on supplies to resell to the public "WITHOUT" the government's permission and paying them first) honestly, am i the only one who sees the absurdity in that?

So there ARE laws against soliciting on private property, but you have to feel like a douche when you shut down a charity lemonade stand.

They really should've looked into getting a license. Then they just wouldn't have had the problem.

yeah... the county is right but thats a real dick thing to do. they could have given them the option to go apply for a vendors permit or just look the other way. i think the guy just saw some quick fine money from these kids/parents

You have got to be drating kidding me. The world we live in today it totally drated. It's ALL political and bureaucratic bullpoo. If I was there I would have knocked that motherdraters teeth out.
