Boys Cupcake Stand Shut Down By Councilman

THECOUNT.COM "ALWAYS OPEN! Since 2005!" - November 15, 2010

NEW CASTLE — Two 13-years-old boys got a cruel reminder of how Uncle Sam wants what’s coming to him after the Cupcake Stand they set up was closed down by a New Castle Councilman, Michael Wolfensohn.

Wolfensohn called the cops on the kids who were only trying to make extra money for the holidays. The police arrived and shut the teens down for operating without a license.

“I am shocked and sad for the boys. It was such a great idea, and they worked hard at it,” said the boy’s mother. “But then some Town Board member decided to get on his high horse and wreck their dreams.”

The little entrepreneurs made a cool $120 their first day in business then spent half of that on a new cart and more products to stock their stand, however, the second day, the boys got a taste of America’s heartless bureaucracy, after cops rolled in and pulled the plug on their sweet money making idea.

“The police officer was extremely pleasant. He said he was sorry to have to do this, but that he was following up on a report filed over the phone by a Town Board member,” said the boy’s mom.

    OK, this will show my age but……A few decades ago I heard that the IRS went after a kid saying they wanted him to pay taxes on his little business: He dug up worms and sold them to the locals as bait! I think the kid only made about $500.00 for the whole YEAR! Jeez!

    So this means when schools have bake sales they are operating without a licence. Or if someone has a lemonade stand they are operating without a licence. This is a bunch of BS. When I was a child this type of action was encouraged. So if I rake a lawn, I have to have a landscapers licence. This is just a way for the government to tax EVERTYTHING. In the beginning I was for Obama, but this is what he’s turning our country into. We no longer live in a free world. Let’s get our robes ready cuz soon we’ll be living like 3rd world countries.
