California city shuts down girl's lemonade stand http://www.mcclatchydc.com/251/story/73160.html Hoping to raise money for a family trip to Disneyland, the Tulare girl opened a lemonade stand Monday. But because Daniela didn't have a business license, the city of Tulare shut it down the same day. CA is really cracking down on those dreaded lawbreakers! Good job Mr Garcia for embarrassing yourself beyond belief to shut down an 8 year old girls' lemonade stand. Would this lemonade stand been shut down 100 years ago? 50 years ago? 30 years ago? Doubt it....

Although I don't agree with them getting shut down I do have to point out the City of Tulare shut them down for no business license, not the State of California. I know its not nearly as much fun to poke fun at Tulare as it is the state but maybe a couple of portagee jokes would be as much fun. side note: Tulare Co. is one of the poorest areas in the US, it has a very high population of farm labor.

That would be illegal here, too, without a business license, a food vendor's license, and regular inspections. Anything not mandatory is prohibited.
