"Map of the Government War on Lemonade Stands"

Bunch of control freaks.
From Carpe Diem:

The map above from the Freedom Center of Missouri shows the "Government War on Kid-Run Concession Stands," where the 24 red flags indicate a town that has shut down a kid-run concession stand (the list goes back as far as 1990, but there were nine just so far this year), the four yellow flags are cities that require kids to get at least one city permit to operate a concession stand, and the the green flags are the only two cities in America that have officially stated that they will allow kids to operate concession stands without any permits: Chadrad, Nebraska, which actually encourages kid-run lemonade stands, and Nashville.

MP: What's next, a "lemonade czar"?

The comments are pretty funny.
