UPDATED: Glenn has best radio interview of the year… with an 11-year-old girl?!

UPDATE: Thanks to the generosity of this audience, Madison has sold several thousand more packages of her mistletoe than expected, and The Maketplace is officially sold out of ‘Madison’s Mistletoe’! It is safe to say Madison will be able to pay for those braces.

Yesterday, TheBlaze reported the mind boggling story of an 11-year-old Oregon girl, Madison Root, who was told she was not allowed to sell her mistletoe at Portland, Oregon’s popular Saturday Market because city ordinance bans such commerce without proper approval. The security guard reportedly added that she could continue on the sidewalk outside or beg for donations instead.

Madison was looking to sell the mistletoe she had picked from her uncle’s farm as a way to offset the cost of her braces, but was chased away before she had a chance to sell any. Glenn got wind of the story yesterday and decided Madison’s entrepreneurial spirit would make an excellent addition to The Marketplace by TheBlaze. 1,000 bags of ‘Madison’s Mistletoe’ were made available in The Marketplace this morning for $9.99 each and sold out almost immediately. Madison is now working to put together more bags of her product.

On radio this morning, a remarkably well-spoken and insightful Madison joined Glenn to talk  about her experience at the Portland Market and why she refused to give up.

Madison explained to Glenn that she could not believe the security guard at the park suggested she beg for money instead of working hard and selling a product.

“I am working hard. I am trying to get something that I want, and I am doing something. I am applying myself,” Madison said. “But now they are saying, ‘You don’t need to apply yourself. You can just sit down and beg for money.’”

Glenn said that selling Madison’s mistletoe in TheBlaze’s Marketplace was a no brainer because the 11-year-old has clearly demonstrated her willingness to work hard for the things she wants. He explained The Marketplace would not profit from the sale of her product, and the only extra cost to consumers is a small surcharge to cover credit card fees.

“I think there’s a lot of people that would appreciate and understand that, you know, you want to work to earn your braces,” Glenn told Madison.

“Yeah, what it really boils down to is this generation’s work ethic, and I think that’s how it’s going right now, it’s just disappointing. It disappoints me that this country has come down to begging instead of working hard for something you want and need,” Madison responded. “My dad has his own company. He’s an entrepreneur. My whole family has always been entrepreneurs. They always have some business going on.”

Madison’s dedication and maturity clearly impressed Pat and Stu, who wondered whether or not she could run for president.

“This is the greatest kid of all time,” Stu said. “That’s my favorite guest of the whole year.”

“Is she too young to run for president,” Pat asked. “She’s great. She is fantastic. If that’s not heartwarming, I don’t know what is.”

    How despicable is it that she’s told that she can “beg” for the money, but can’t sell something that she grew and gathered in order to earn money? Who out there can listen to this story and not say that the ordinances that declared she couldn’t sell her mistletoe is utterly wrong, and a sign that leftist progressive collectivism is destroying us? God bless Glenn for helping her out, but something tells me that his involvement is only going to bring more leftist stupidity down upon her.

    i’m sorry, but some of the comments on this page make me want to go postal. One suggests that she “sell the pot to liberals and spray something really nice that would give them euphoria and kill them. The country would be a much better place. 1000 dead democrats here a thousand there and pretty soon you have an unelected democrat liar”. Yea, they just suggested she murder people. Da fuq? o_O
    Also, they continuously act like they barred her from selling her mistletoe completely when in reality they just asked that she properly apply just like everyone else has to if they want to sell stuff at Saturday Market. If she was really an entrepreneur, she would just go ahead and follow the rules of the market to properly run her “business”. Why should she be exempt from those rules?

    NO – but if she were to try to sell it at Saturday Market YES because it is a marketplace with rules!!! why is everyone failing to get that part? It’d be like if she were trying to sell stuff inside a store – of course they’d ask her to leave! logic people, LOGIC

  • ORGal

    btw – even her family is confused why this became a big deal and is appalled that the media turned it into a political thing. She was trying to sell product inside of an established market w/o applying or paying the proper fees just like every other vendor there has to. So, the officer told her 1) move 150 feet and sell it on the sidewalk, 2) register for the market like everyone else has to or 3) stay in the market, but just ask for money, don’t sell anything (as selling items would be in competition with vendors who actually paid their dues). Of course the media ran with option #3 and turned it into this ridiculous political fiasco. You all make me sick for using this child for this crap.

    she was told that if she wanted to sell there, inside of the market, she’d have to register like all of the other vendors. She was also told that if she didn’t want to do that, she could move 150ft to the sidewalk and sell it there. When SHE asked about the beggers, she was told they were allowed to be there because they weren’t selling anything, and thus, not in competition with the vendors products or violating market rules. They didn’t tell her she couldn’t sell her mistletoe or that she should beg – they just informed her on how she could legally sell her mistletoe w/o violating market policy. Someone decided that they didn’t want to follow the proper channels to legally sell at the market or on the sidewalk, and instead it became a media fiasco.

    they didn’t even frame it to her as an option, the officer just explained to her why the panhandlers were allowed to stay there. Because they aren’t selling anything in direct competition with the vendors.

    It’s ridiculous to make vendors register and pay dues to be part of an established market? Of course the rules apply to her inside of that market!. She could have moved to the sidewalk and been fine!! they told her that!!

  • tobias smit

    I basically agree with your statements but I would be more specific in what role the parents played here. Why? This young lady has a very well rounded education and that did not come with a wellfare check. (I know there are many kids that do well under that burden btw, many years ago our family struggled and needed the help for a while). But this whole thing smells, she is too well educated and her parents knew or should have known the public’s reaction to the By-Lwaws Officers decisions. HE did not have an option as all of you say on this forum many times” The Law is the Law”. well no matter what you all should stick with that standpoint. She and her family broke laws . End of story and do not be hypocrites which you all accuse the liberals off.

    I do not choose to be a common man. It is my right to be uncommon— if I can. I seek opportunity not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me.

    I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia.

    I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat.

    It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid; to think and act for myself, enjoy the benefit of my creations and to face the world boldly and say, “This I have done.”

  • tobias smit

    I made a reply to ORGal a few minutes ago I forgot to tell all of you that I agree with her and also I am a conservative to the point it tends to drive people nuts. I do that by being logical and non offensive and try to make my discussion partners think before they reply. And as I mentioned in my reply do not let your emotions blur your thinking, that is why there so many pressures on the TEA Party candidates right now the attacks on them from even the old guard GOP ( O’Connel McCain and others) are THE indications those TEA party Guys and Gals are on the right path. Look at Mrs Palin’s reply on FOX today regarding Basir’s repulsive s”’t . Listen to her! Now that is CLASS that the Democrats have none off!.

    I don’t think she should be exempt from the rules. It was the comment that set every one on edge. The cultural norm that says begging is a protected first amendment right and an accepted practice and hard work is not. I know that the reactions of people in the comment section get out of hand, but there are many people who feel in the core of their being that thins are wrong and getting worse. Many times they are frustrated and can’t find the words to express it so they result to speaking out of frustration.
    Here is something to think about. The cultural clash is between two different world views. One that was almost universally prevalent a hundred years ago: A man or woman had to be competent in hundreds of skills and abilities and was responsible for their own survival and prosperity or lack of it. I listened to the words of a farmer who died at 101 who was born in the late 1800′s and went on to become a lawyer and a US ambassador. He said that growing up he considered it a personal insult if the sun beat him to the fields.
    The other world view gaining ground today: That in an industrial or post industrial society of specialization of labor, each drone fulfills their task and the collective provides the support and security that individuals, families and communities used to provide. The centralized government assumes more and more of the role of protector, provider, and regulator. Which do you suppose ends better for people? There are five incredible examples of this same failed experiment in the last 100 years. The truth (history) is out there…..

I do admire her ambition, but I guess she just isn’t so special that she needn’t follow the rules like everyone else.

    Given the fact that the others had to have a permit to sell at the market, the security guard was only doing their job. She wasn’t told to go beg, she was told she could sell the mistletoe on the sidewalk – just not where permits were required. If the family had done their due diligence, this wouldn’t have been an issue in the first place. Don’t make the guard out to be a bad guy for doing his job. He even told her where she could sell legally. Now the girl will probably walk away with thousands instead of $20 bucks or so. Who makes their kid earn money for their braces anyway? Seems like a scam to me.

    Did she have to rent space but didn’t? I don’t know. Regardless no one can just stand at a corner and sell stuff, I don’t agree the government shouldn’t do such a thing but i’ll bet you don’t want me selling stuff on the sidewalk in-front of your house. I’m wondering why she didn’t rent the space if she could?

    Ted, that wasn’t the point. The point was that there were beggars there begging for money and pot (something she said on tv – I live in the area and she was on the news), and they were allowed to do that, while a young girl wasn’t able to give something in return for money. It’s fine that she needed to have the appropriate license. It’s not fine that a beggar isn’t required to have the same license.

    The psyop works this way: label all criminal machinations designed to make the rich richer and the poor poorer “capitalism.”

    The objective? Increase the power of government and its allied corporations to control the means of production and the distribution of goods and services.

    “Well, freedom and the free market didn’t work. It was always corrupt to the core. So let’s kill capitalism and install a fair and equitable and humane system…”

    Yes, and let’s have a rainbow every day, with fairies and elves dancing in the sky and parachuting food and money down to the masses. If you want something now, you can have it now. No charge. You didn’t like the vegetables that came from the sky with your package? We’ll send a drone to your home and deliver candy and ice cream and hot dogs.

    Fairy tales aside, capitalism actually means: you produce something and you charge money for it. People who want it pay for it.

    All by itself, that system doesn’t make the rich richer and the poor poorer.

    Hijacking that system creates the problem. Illegal coercive monopolies create the problem. Covert government favoritism creates the problem. The failure to prosecute these crimes creates the problem. Inventing so much money out of thin air decreases the value of the money you have, and that’s a problem. Saddling small businesses with so many regulations saps their money and energy and creates a problem.

    Fascists telling an 11-year-old girl named Madison Root she can’t sell mistletoe in Portland, Oregon, but can beg for money in the park illustrates the problem. She can “ask for donations,” but she can’t sell.

    The federal government can offer hundred of billions and even trillions of dollars to big banks, but a little girl can’t sell mistletoe.

    On behalf of Monsanto and other biotech ag giants, the US government can send advance men around the world to promote GMO food, can try to drown Africa in toxic GMOs, but a little girl can’t sell mistletoe without a business license.

    What’s next? SWAT teams invading garage sales and shutting them down? Oh, wait. Was Madison Root selling mistletoe on public property? Was that the crime? Public property means “government-controlled” and has nothing to do with the public, the people? Then why not call it government-owned land.

    “Our top story tonight…Karl Marx walked into a park in Portland, Oregon, and explained to an 11-year-old girl why she couldn’t sell mistletoe. He said the dictatorship of the proletariat controlled the means of production, and since there was no government mistletoe factory, she was a criminal. Afterward, Mr. Marx chatted with a local student group carrying a banner emblazoned with the directive, Everything Should Be Free. He was overheard saying, ‘You people are very useful idiots. Keep on keeping on.’”

    Giant pharmaceutical companies can sell government-approved toxic drugs that kill 106,000 people a year, like clockwork, in the US, without fear of criminal prosecution, but a little girl can’t sell mistletoe. (See Starfield, Journal of the American Medical Association, July 26, 2000, “Is US health really the best in the world?”)

    Pharma doesn’t operate according to the rules of capitalism; it operates on the basis of government protection in the service of poisoning the population, while racking up billions in profits.

    Defense corporations can win taxpayer-funded government contracts to produce enough munitions to destroy the planet ten times over, but a little girl can’t sell mistletoe.

    The defense corporations don’t operate according to the rules of capitalism; they operate on the basis of government-mandated imperial empire.

    Producing and selling goods which are non-harmful isn’t the problem. Cronyism and hijacking and pirating that system are the problem.

    Unionizing and striking and collectively bargaining to earn a livable wage aren’t the problem. Signing illegal globalist treaties that encourage the export of jobs overseas where labor is cheap is the problem. Relocating those jobs under the false rubric of free trade is the problem.

    But a little girl can’t sell mistletoe during the Christmas season in Portland.

    The US government can create a trillion-dollar sector of the economy, by letting out contracts to companies to build a wall-to-wall Surveillance State, spying 24/7 on the American people…

    But a little girl can’t sell mistletoe.

    Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

    What an awesome young lady! It’s the kind of children people in this country should be raising instead of those who have their hand out wanting everything to be “given” to them! My grandson (16-1/2) has always asked if there’s any work we need done so he can earn money. I’d much rather he do that than have his hand out expecting everything to be handed to him. Great job to this exceptional family! Thanks Glenn for helping her to succeed and bringing her to our attention, I’m proud of kids like this and the parents who set good examples.
