Silly Kid, 9, Sells Lemonade To Try To Save Disaster Known As Detroit

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A 9-year-old boy selling lemonade to help Detroit recover from its economic crisis has drawn attention from the mayor and supporters around the country.

Joshua Smith, who has been selling lemonade and snacks at the side of the road to assist with Detroit`s recovery, said a Tuesday story published in the Detroit Free Press led to a phone call from Mayor Dave Bing and calls and e-mails from fellow Michiganders and supporters from across the country, the Free Press reported."



Detroit is a failed city and any efforts to turn things around are destined to fail. The billions of dollars in federal money that have poured into Detroit in an effort to revitalize the doomed metropolis are as effectual as Joshua`s lemonade stand.

There is nothing more all American than a little kid selling lemonade to raise funds for his Boy Scout troop, but a kid selling lemonade to try to save Detroit is downright communist.

If anyone wants to know what the Zombie Apocalypse will look like, just visit Detroit. Joshua needs to be doing something more productive with his time: Playing video games, watching cartoons on TV or doing somersaults in the middle of the street.
