Fauquier County Punishes Woman For…Hosting A Birthday Party
You’ve heard about counties shutting down children’s lemonade stands for no other reason than county officials are, well, I can’t print what they are. But in Fauquier County, Virginia, officials have decided to top that…by punishing a woman who hosted a ten year old’s birthday party:
This is the idiocy that we have to deal with. This is the kind of heartbreak and torture created by government regulation. I bet you dollars to donuts that what happened here is a combination of misguided do-gooders who want to keep people from accidentally ingesting food that may not be edible, combined with larger farms and agricultural businesses who cackled evilly at the chance to create yet another piece of red tape to shut down competitors.
Great going, Fauquier. Ruining children’s birthday parties. You deserve some sort of award. Considering the subject matter, I think it should come in the form of a giant bucket of cow crud.
