In giving drink away, girls ignore rules of economics -- and sum up what's wrong with U.S.

They're all very nice. But these things aren't free.

The government only gets the money to pay these benefits by raising taxes, meaning taxpayers pay for the "free lemonade." Or by printing money -- which is essentially a tax on savings, since printing more money devalues the wealth we hold in dollars.

If we can't teach our kids the basics of running a lemonade stand, how can we ever teach Congress the basics of economics?

Or maybe it's the other way around: The kids are learning from the society around them. No one has ever taught them there's no free lunch -- and all they see is "free," not the result of hard work, and saving, and scrimping.

If that's what America's children think -- that there's a free lunch waiting -- then our country has larger problems ahead. The Declaration of Independence promised "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." It didn't promise anything free. Something to think about this July 4th holiday weekend.

This sounds like a Daily Mail article (right-wing paper) in the UK.
So, UG, do you think giving something away for free strikes at the core of society?

When God gives you lemons, you call him a communist/socialist/fascist (delete as acclipable)

Mr. McCarthy, I think little Debbie from down the street is red. And her parents. And some of her friends. And babysitter. Especially the babysitter.

As pompous as she is, she has a point. At some point the handouts need to stop and people need to suck it up. That goes for corporations as well.

It's not right to take money from the people who work hard to earn it and distribute it to people who just sit on their ass all day.

EDIT: But I like the spirit of giving. I just don't think the government should be in charge of it and screw it up like it does everything else.

Wow, what a douche. They're just kids trying to be nice! He says these kids are what's wrong with America, I think people like the author are what's wrong with America. Stamp out the willingness to help and instill a mental state of only looking out for yourself. That shit sickens me.

When God gives you lemons, you start a holy war with a neighboring civilization whose God gave them limes.

There is no such thing as free, so I don't know what so hard to get about that? It takes something to give something away, either it's your money or effort that you used to give it away, or it was taken by the government and used to pay for the stuff, then given away and called free.


But the lemonade stand thing was just a bad example.
