Skip to comments.Obama Gets Schooled On The “Root” of Prosperity By An 11 Year Old Girl

Let me end by addressing the elephant in the room here, which is the seeming inability to get anything done in Washington these days.
Woo-hoo! Im dying here! Did you catch that? The elephant in the room! Ha ha ha! The do-nothing elephant Congress. Kudos to the speechwriter who came up with that, youve got a standing job offer on the Daily Show.
As Im sure youve heard, Big Guy pivoted away from the continually unfolding disaster of Obamacare yesterday back to the economy which, by comparison, is doing much better.
Donkey ears for the Prezzie making elephant jokes
Making the claim that income inequality is the defining challenge of our time, Big Guy pivoted back to what he hopes will be his priority for the next three years: fixing that pesky inequality through even more redistribution of wealth.
The basic bargain at the heart of our economy has frayed, Big Guy said, implying that we no longer offer an honest days wage for an honest days work. He said that challenged the very essence of who we are as a people and called for an increase to the minimum wage.
I know somebody who would agree with his statement whole-heartedly; Madison Root. You know, the little 11 year old who harvested mistletoe on her uncles farm,
packaged it up, tied with a ribbon and tried to sell it in a park in downtown Portland.
Only to be shooed out of the area for violating city ordinances regarding the sale of goods in parks. Begging, hanging out, smoking pot there - all cool. Selling mistletoe to help pay for your braces? Not so much:
'People can get money for pot but I can't get money for braces? I'm working for this, they're just sitting down on their butts all day asking for pot.'
Heres an 11 year old girl who understands the principle of an honest days work for an honest days wage far better than our Prezzie. And I dare say she also has a better grasp of the unintended consequences of well-meaning government intervention and regulation as well.
The country needs more Madison Roots, as well as more Mr. and Mrs. Roots who raise children like Madison. In Portland Oregon of all places!
Get out of her way, and Madison will be able to realize the American Dream: I wonder if shes home-schooled?
Oh, and for the record: the elephant in Big Guys front room is not the do-nothing Congress, its the do-everything Congress. The rear-end problems with Obamacare havent been addressed yet, and they show signs of festering. Not to worry though, weve got our A-team of tech experts (the best and the brightest by Common Core standards) working on it.
Obamacare: Praying it FORWARD! Period.

Gotta shut her down. How dare she think that hard work and ingenuity are a good thing. Since she is now doing some on line things, I’m sure she’s violating some epa or agriculture rule or regulation. Is she collecting tax? Does she have a business license/permit? I’m sure she hasn’t heard the last from the powers that be. You WILL comply. Or else. Gotta love a kid this smart and parents that taught her there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch. NSTAAFL
Hey, it’s not like mistletoe grows on trees...oh, wait a minute, maybe it does!
Amen Megyn! Here’s to a new President Madison in 30 years!
Oh, yeah. Forgot about her website:
It’s almost certain she’s in violation of OSHA rules (an all-aluminum ladder) and Department of Labor (underage worker exceeding height restrictions) and many others I’m not even aware of yet.

Don’t click to play the video. It takes you to another website where I got a MALWARE warning.
This is one of the reasons Humblegunner is so against blog pimpin’ on FR.
I watched the video with no problem and I still think humbler is rude and awful
Get a free virus scanner and watch the video- it is worth it.
I love you too, sweetiecakes.
Dad is going to get audited... Count on it.
Thanks for posting her website. I ordered some of her mistletoe for family, friends, and myself. Capitalism at its best!
