Once Again*, the State Turns Lemonade Into Lemons

Seven-year old Julie Murphy had a run-in with the law in the state of Oregon. It seems this hardened criminal had the unmitigated gall to open a lemonade stand without obtaining a temporary restaurant license from the State. The brain-dead bureaucRATs (I know, that’s redundant) say that they “understand” what a malefactor like Julie is doing, “But we still need to put the public’s health first.” How the tens of millions of us have survived kids’ unlicensed lemonade stands for the last century is obviously beyond the usual lack of logic in the brain-dead minds of government bureaucRATs.

I have an idea: If the bureaucRATs are really concerned about the public’s health, why don’t all of the bureaucRATs drop dead? I can assure you that the permanent end of all of the bureaucRATs’ health would greatly improve the health of the public.

The face of a hardened criminal:
