Poison Pero is RIGHT!

Jennifer Hughes (Montgomery, Maryland, Department of Permitting Services)

“It wasn’t that we were the big hand of county government trying to come down and squash anything…We were attempting to do what a government is charged with doing, which is protecting communities and protecting the safety of people.”

- Statement about the county giving a group of children a $500 fine for running a lemonade stand without a permit.

Oh my!  The horror!

And to make it even worse, the children were selling lemonade to donate money to charity...(screams of terror in the background!)

“I just think the whole thing was kind of insane that they made such a big deal about a small problem. In the first place, I don’t know how a 10-year-old could get a permit.” - Isabella (one of the dangerous kids the county was "protecting the safety of the people" against)

"Insane" is the right word.  Il-Liberal insanity at its illogical finest.
