This has what it has come to in the United States … politicians calling the police on teens for merely selling cupcakes? We must break their entrepreneural spirit, how dare teens experience capitalism.
Just to answer the question on everyones mind … Yes, the fool is a Democrat.
Dumb ass of the week award
That is correct,New Castle, NY Councilman Michael Wolfensohn called the police on two 13 year old boys after he discovered they were selling cupcakes with out a permit. You just can’t make this crap up. Calling the police on two kids selling cupcakes in a park for $1 each. This is the message that a dumb ass politician wants to send to children? Some who it is expected that the boys should have purcahsed a permit to sell things in the park costs $150 to $350 for two hours and a $1 million insurance certificate is also required. Who elected this MORON! What ever happened to common sense?
A politician in a New York suburb called police on two 13-year-old boys for selling cupcakes and other baked goods without a permit, according to a report Monday.
The Journal News in Westchester County said the boys, Andrew DeMarchis and Kevin Graff, had a brisk business selling cupcakes, cookies, brownies and Rice Krispie treats for $1 each in a Chappaqua park.
However, New Castle Councilman Michael Wolfensohn called the police after discovering the sale was not for charity, the newspaper said.
Kevin’s mother, Laura Graff, said the teens were “good kids” who were scared by the police call.
“I am shocked and sad for the boys. It was such a great idea, and they worked hard at it,” Laura Graff, Kevin’s mother, told The Journal News. “But then some Town Board member decided to get on his high horse and wreck their dreams.”
What kind of a delusional, asinine rat bastard of a politician must one be to actually call the policy on two 13 year old boys for selling cupcakes? As stated by Jammie Wearing Fool, looks like this fool confiscated the cupcakes for himself as it looks like he has not missed a dessert.
For all you kids who think its OK to sell lemonade, wrong … You need a $150 permit to sell a 50 cent cup or the face the wrath of the law.
