American Justice

MIDWAY, Ga. (AP) — Police in Georgia have shut down a lemonade stand run by three girls trying to save up for a trip to a water park, saying they didn't have a business license or the required permits.

Midway Police Chief Kelly Morningstar says police also didn't know how the lemonade was made, who made it or what was in it.

The girls had been operating for one day when Morningstar and another officer cruised by.

The whole point of being a "police officer" is to compensate for low self esteem. You're able to make people do your bidding simply because of the job you have. Not surprising that cops extend that to kids. They get off on it.

And the comments...

I've seen several articles about this type of thing in different states over the past couple of years. This country is f*&king insane.

Why yes.. yes it is.

The decline of empires is inevitable. It's not caused by any particular political ideology. It's caused by most people being really fucking stupid.

Speaking of really fucking stupid;

ROME (Reuters) - Italy's parliament was set on Friday to approve a 48 billion euro austerity package aimed at averting a full scale financial crisis but there were growing questions about the government's capacity for further reforms.

The reason those governments are in "crisis" is because the economies of these nations are plagued by a lack of demand for goods and services.

As Prof. K explains, contractionary policy is not expansionary.

Prof. K also thinks the question of whether policy makers are stupid or evil is pretty simple. However, he doesn't get into motives. The motive is simple. It's class warfare. Most don't even realize the war is being waged.

.. and it is, of course, already lost. Unless you're wealthy.. and then it's a great triumph. YaY
