PS...Let us bring back the 50's...Happy days...we all had jobs,we had..."MADE IN AMERICA"...And kids could make lemonade...and not be buy drugs..and when the garbage stayed on the other side of the fence. Bring back AMERICA WITH COMMON SENSE.

Bob...3rd Generation American .. My family fought in WW1,WW2,Korea,Nam and now this so called granddaughter of 6 years of age ...can not sell lemonade..Wake up America....
