<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">It's hardly unusual to hear small-business owners gripe about licensing requirements or complain that heavy-handed regulations are driving them into the red.

So when Multnomah County shut down an enterprise last week for operating without a license, you might just sigh and say, there they go again.

Except this entrepreneur was a 7-year-old named Julie Murphy. Her business was a lemonade stand at the Last Thursday monthly art fair in Northeast Portland. The government regulation she violated? Failing to get a $120 temporary restaurant license.

Turns out that kids' lemonade stands -- those constants of summertime -- are supposed to get a permit in Oregon, particularly at big events that happen to be patrolled regularly by county health inspectors.

"I understand the reason behind what they're doing and it's a neighborhood event, and they're trying to generate revenue," said Jon Kawaguchi, environmental health supervisor for the Multnomah County Health Department. "But we still need to put the public's health first." </div></div>

Fortunately we finally have a regime determined to see that the next generation of Americans is not taught to act as EEEVILLL entrepreneurs!

Hopefully we can one day see the extermination of capitalism, and happily meet our end at the state's prescribed time knowing that all classes of people have finally been equally trampled into submission by the heavy boot of the glorious state.

When people are free to conduct business, buy and sell, as they choose, that is called capitalism. Economic freedom is fundamental to political freedom and this was recognized even by our Founders. The 'state' is the enemy of freedom and needs to be chained by the Constitution lest we loose it all.

I love how the state official explains that with the $120.00 license fee paid the public's safety is ensured, without the $120.00 being paid the public's safety is at risk.
