Ok, not really “jail” – but face 5,000 dollars in fines for operating a vegetable garden. Should Mr. Clarkston refuse to pay his protection money, then it’s off to the hoosegow.
The AJC reports:
DeKalb County has cited a man for growing too many vegetables on his own land, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Steve Miller of Clarkston said he plans to fight the county and has gotten his 2-acre property rezoned so that he can have his garden. But he still faces nearly $5,000 in fines, Miller told Channel 2.
Nancy Pelosi has issued a formal statement declaring that anyone attempting to sustain himself without purchasing food from the government created Monsanto/Con Agra oligopoly will be shot on sight.
Let us also not forget that you do not actually own your land, the government owns your land and allows you to use it for very specific purposes. You need to get permission before doing anything to your land. This blatant gardening without permission must be put to a halt immediately or else someone might actually profit from growing food that isn’t a mega-industrial giant.
