Thirteen year old Nathan Duszynski of Holland, Michigan saved up his lawn mowing money and bought a hot dog stand in order to bring in some income for his family. Both of his parents are disabled.
At the City Hall of Holland, Michigan Nathan and his parents were told that it would be fine to open up a hot dog stand, and no licenses were required. But on the first day of business for Nathan, the zoning office came down on him, and shut him down.
The hotdog stand is now up for sale, and one more American, small-business dream is squashed by big government.
