I suppose if I have a garage sale I’m a subversive.
“a nationwide protest formed in response to a recent rash of childrens lemonade stands being shut down by police.”
Do you mean that the police in these cases have revealed themselves to “protect and serve” the interests of the State?

That little girl would have been out of business before she made her very first phone call on that cell phone her daddy gave her!
The city government probably would have sent the swat team to close her down (and shoot her dog!)
we use to laugh at the idea this could happen, now its routine
Dang, Govt. is absolutely insane these days. Dang, these subversives are destroying our country with their refreshing drinks of capitalism.
Should have called themselves Occupy Citrus Street
I’ll drink to that.
Suzy is doing great. I saw her on TV a few minutes ago.
She even bought a new pony.
