Posted on 01/30/2014 3:56:32 AM PST by Marcus
11 year old Chloe Stirling got some great accolades from her local newspaper for the cupcake business she had started out of her parents' kitchen. Unfortunately the local health department took another view and shut her down.
The sticking point was that not only did she lack the proper permits and licenses to run a food business, but according to local and state law she would have to either own her own bakery or have a kitchen separate from that of her parents to continue cooking cupcakes for money. Since this was clearly impossible, Stirling is no longer able to run a business. Thus she has learned at an early age that the biggest obstacle to entrepreneurism consists of government rules and regulations.

Sons of bitches!
How did we ever survive without the Niagara of regulations and bureaucrat to protect us? In fact, we clearly need even more regulations and government employees to take care of us according to Obama.
And Yahoo reports this, without a shred of situational awareness of the irony, that THIS IS precisely the kind of activist government that libs at Yahoo crave????
Just another example of your gummint at all levels, hard at work...keeping you from working.
Enter... The Kronies!... www.thekronies.com
In a deep demonic voice -
“We will crush you!”
How can you screw up cupcakes?
The Health Department did the right thing.
Have you ever watched where a kid puts their fingers/hands?
Pick their nose, clean their ear with their finger, pet the dog, scratch their butt, scratch their cat’s butt.....etc.
No thanks, I’ll make my own cupcakes.
MEANWHILE, al Qaeda is armed by Obama with MANPADs and sarin,
and the borders are left open.
MEANWHILE, blacks attack elderly white, Hispanic,
and Asian men and women with impunity all across the USA
because the DO”J” told them to continue after they
demonstrated they would NEVER again enforce the law
Give ‘em few more years, the government is going to be demanding to inspect and approve EVERYBODY’S kitchen, regardless of whether you are selling food or not.
If your kitchen isn’t clean enough, they will drag your kids off to a government facility where they can be properly cared for.
And you’re assured in the privacy of restaurant kitchens across America the same thing doesn’t happen, at some level?
I just read about a young woman spitting on a police officer’s pizza before she boxed it up for him.
Pick their nose, clean their ear with their finger, pet the dog, scratch their butt, scratch their cats butt.....etc.

May as well close ALL facilities down.
Don’t you think it strange that a business is forced to put up a sign telling employees to wash their hands after using the head?
Did you never hear the oldie “one will eat a pound of dirt in their lifetime”....
And your last sentence says it all....”No thanks, I’ll make my own cupcakes.”
Which is entirely your right, NO ONE is ‘forcing’ you to buy the cupcakes or lemonade or letting the older young urchins trample on your lawn while mowing it or not allowing them to shovel your snow because you are not sure if your insurance covers you or not.
We can effectively shut out the ‘kids’ from the work force or ‘price them out of business’ BUT we shouldn’t collectively call them lazy and worthless when they don’t even know how to sweep the floor when they are let loose into the world.
There are some things one just needs to keep quiet about. Shame on the nanny state for shutting her down.
as I sit here drinking a coffee; “I can really go for a cupcake right now”...
You are also FREE TO CHOOSE not to buy. WHY shut it down?
We all know those signs are put up for the benefit of the customer and not the employees.
“..NO ONE is forcing you to buy the cupcakes or lemonade or letting the older young urchins trample on your lawn while mowing it or not allowing them to shovel your snow because you are not sure if your insurance covers you or not.”
“We can effectively shut out the kids from the work force or price them out of business BUT we shouldnt collectively call them lazy and worthless when they dont even know how to sweep the floor when they are let loose into the world.”
You got all that from me saying I’ll make my own cupcakes?
Sounds like you’ve got some serious issues that need immediate attention.
Interesting dichotomy how government comes down like an iron hammer to destroy an 11 year-old’s entrepreneurial spirit. This same government would shower her with money if she were pregnant and went on the dole. Big government rewards slave behavior, because big government needs slaves.
Can you imagine wherre we would be if the nannies had been around since the beginning of this counrty. We would have gotten nowhere. A people who once braved a conquered a hostile continent now need there hands held to cross the street. If youtrade freedom for security you end up with neither.
Sounds like youve got some serious issues
= = = = = = = = = = = = =
Yes I do have some serious issues.
Especially with control freaks.
If YOU don’t want to buy the cupcakes. DON’T!.
If I want to buy ‘em, none of your business.
Like some woman told me the other day.
“I should have the right to an abortion or whatever”.
“YES, you do. You have the right to do ANYTHING you want.
If it is ‘illegal’, pay the price, If it comes to an abortion, go ahead, none of my business -
UNTIL you expect me to pay for it”.
We had a much better existence BEFORE everyone started telling us how much better off we would be if only......
