Great idea as long as it includes the Mormons and Jehovah Witness groups.

FDR Jones: downstairs: meat0918: I didn't think the GS were allowed to sell door-to-door?

Is that true?  Back when I was a kid I remember my sisters going door to door.  And I did too with some Cub Scout stuff.

Right now I live in a neighborhood with quite literally zero kids.  We don't even get trick-or-treaters*.

*Actually in the 7 years I've been here we've gotten one trick-or-treater group of kids.  The three of them lucked out, since we have candy- I gave them each like 15 pieces of candy.

I live in a neighborhood with tons of kids and we don't get any trick-or-treaters either; I think the concept is dying.

Man, I live out in the boonies in one of the few actually "neighborhoods," so we get trick or treaters from all over like, a 20 mile radius.  It's crazy.  And you know, with the exception of the idiots parking their giant trucks so close together that no one can LEAVE THE FREAKING SUBDIVISION, I'm pretty much fine with it; it's a fun tradition that kids should be able to enjoy.  But this past year, when I took my daughter around the neighborhood, we saw a bunch of families in trucks/vans, and the parents stop at a house, let the kids off, wait for them to get candy and come back, and then drive up another house or two.  I almost started screaming and foaming at the mouth when I saw it.  Seriously, your kids are too lazy to walk a couple of miles for a BAG FULL OF FREE CANDY?

/This is why American kids are such fatties.
//Next year I'm turning the hose on any kids who pull that crap with me.

They don't go door to door anymore.  They just set up shop at the entrance to every grocery store, Walmart, Target, Sam's Club, Costco, and pharmacy in the city and accost everyone to buy their overpriced crap.

Simple...Have a special permit that a group could register a school, girl scout troop, boy scout troop, church..etc. Could have a blanket permit for all it's members for free that covers their entire organization. Make the permit good for 10 years.

Funnily enough, the people complaining about how the Girl and Boy Scouts will be affected are most likely vaccuum cleaner, cable / satellite TV, and security system salesmen.

/it should be law that, just as you have the right to free speech, I have the right not to listen
//in other words, if I indicate that soliciting is not allowed on my property, ringing my doorbell to solicit should be treated just as seriously as impinging on somebody's right to free speech. Ditto sending junk mail of any kind to a person (customer or otherwise) who has indicated a desire not to receive junk mail, or phoning / faxing somebody who has joined a do not call list.

Well, they're always yada-yada-ing about teaching the girls about running a business and keeping track of things.  Sounds like good true-life experience; along with the situational contractors, magazine subscription scams and so forth, it'll teach a good lesson in obtaining permits and licenses and following the rules.  After all, their competition has to.
