I just heard the last caller use the word "balance," and I think this lemonade stand issue is an example of how our society and the american culture seems to be a bit out of balance. I believe that having some regulation is good, but it seems like regulation in this country has gotten a bit out of balance, and one has to ask "is this going to take us to where we want to go?" I would have to say that i think we have a bit too much regulation, a bit too much red tape these days, and that accessing the regulations, for those that do want to follow the rules is difficult. We have a farm in Clark County WA. and I would love to build a commercial kitchen to sell value-added products but cannot find out from anyone (health dept or county) what the steps are and have sent numerous emails trying to find out information on what that would entail, again, the red tape and regulation is a bit out of balance.
The questions above is something we all need to ask: "Is this taking us to where we want to go?"
