Illegal Vegetable Gardens Government Bans Americans from Growing Vegetables!

By Jeff Siegel

In an effort to reduce pressure on the public food supply during World War II, 20 million Americans planted victory gardens, growing everything from potatoes and corn to beans and carrots.
These folks were considered patriots.

Today we are once again starting to see a victory garden movement appear in our cities and towns…

Only this time, these gardens are a result of pressure on public food supplies due to extreme weather conditions, costly biofuel mandates, and rising oil prices.
Unfortunately, the government doesn’t seem too interested in supporting such patriotic endeavors anymore — and in fact has been going out of its way to dissuade hard-working Americans from growing their own food to feed their families.

Your Garden is Illegal

Last year I learned about a woman named Julie Bass from Oak Park, Michigan.
In July 2011, Bass was moments away from being thrown in jail for 93 days.
Her crime?

In an effort to feed her family during tough economic times, she refused to take a government handout in the form of food stamps and started growing her own food, which would ultimately help her provide nourishment for eight people.

Her reward?

Some overzealous bureaucrat told her a vegetable garden is not what people in the neighborhood wanted to see in a front yard, and pointed to a city code that stated front yards have to have suitable live plant material. He explained the garden was not suitable, stating:
If you look at the definition of what “suitable” is in Webster’s Dictionary, it will say common. So, if you look around and you look in any other community, what’s common to a front yard is a nice grass yard with beautiful trees and bushes and flowers.

Typical useless bureaucratic bullshit.

And here’s the bizarre thing…

In July 2011, Oak Park, Michigan, was so strapped for cash they canceled their Independence Day fireworks display to save money, and the town cut the workweek down to four days.
But somehow they found the time to ticket, fine, and prosecute an American citizen who decided to grow vegetables to help feed her family.
Can you imagine if things were like this back when folks were planting victory gardens during WWII?

It’s absurd.

Fortunately, Oak Park dropped the charges against Bass — but the tyrannous attack on Americans that have the audacity to plant gardens on property they own hasn’t ended.

They’ll Steal Your Food

Jason Helvingston lives in Orlando, Florida, where he grows beans, radishes, and chard in his front yard. And while not a single neighbor has ever complained, another useless government drone has decided the garden doesn’t meet some “code” that requires a “finished appearance.”
Basically, they want the visual appeal of grass — not sustenance.

So, just like most other local government suits who bed their nests with your tax dollars, some Barney Fife-type character in Orlando is demanding the vegetable garden be destroyed.
Thankfully, Helvingston isn’t giving in. He’s telling the city they’ll have to take his house before they take his garden. He’s even collected more than 200 signatures from his community expressing support for the garden and requesting the city change its decision.

Although it’s likely Mr. Helvingston will win this battle, others in the past have not been so lucky…
Take Denise Morrison, for instance. Morrison once had more than 100 plant varieties in her yard, all of which were edible and had a purpose.

But the city of Tulsa told her the garden was in violation of a city code — and without warning, they violently destroyed her garden.

Not only was this a blatant attack on her Fourth Amendment right; it also resulted in Morrison losing her plants — which, at the time, were her livelihood as they served as both food and medicine during a time when she was unemployed.

Morrison didn’t want a handout, food stamps, or sympathy; she only wanted the ability to provide for herself and not be a burden to others. Sadly, this is a way of life few people understand today — yet is an honorable one that could lift this nation from despair if we collectively embraced it.

Bottom line: This is unacceptable behavior.

We must not only stop these egregious violations from continuing… but we must hold all elected officials accountable for their arrogant disregard for the constitutional and civil rights of law-abiding Americans.

They are acting as accomplices to very real crimes — and must be treated no different than any other criminal.

Live honorably, live free…

Government Security is Just Another Kind of Violence

The senseless and horrific killings last week in Newtown, Connecticut reminded us that a determined individual or group of individuals can cause great harm no matter what laws are in place. Connecticut already has restrictive gun laws relative to other states, including restrictions on fully automatic, so-called “assault” rifles and gun-free zones.

Predictably, the political left responded to the tragedy with emotional calls for increased gun control. This is understandable, but misguided. The impulse to have government “do something” to protect us in the wake national tragedies is reflexive and often well intentioned. Many Americans believe that if we simply pass the right laws, future horrors like the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting can be prevented. But this impulse ignores the self evident truth that criminals don’t obey laws.

The political right, unfortunately, has fallen into the same trap in its calls for quick legislative solutions to gun violence. If only we put armed police or armed teachers in schools, we’re told, would-be school shooters will be dissuaded or stopped.

While I certainly agree that more guns equals less crime and that private gun ownership prevents many shootings, I don’t agree that conservatives and libertarians should view government legislation, especially at the federal level, as the solution to violence. Real change can happen only when we commit ourselves to rebuilding civil society in America, meaning a society based on family, religion, civic and social institutions, and peaceful cooperation through markets. We cannot reverse decades of moral and intellectual decline by snapping our fingers and passing laws.

Let’s not forget that our own government policies often undermine civil society, cheapen life, and encourage immorality. The president and other government officials denounce school violence, yet still advocate for endless undeclared wars abroad and easy abortion at home. U.S. drone strikes kill thousands, but nobody in America holds vigils or devotes much news coverage to those victims, many of which are children, albeit, of a different color.

Obviously I don’t want to conflate complex issues of foreign policy and war with the Sandy Hook shooting, but it is important to make the broader point that our federal government has zero moral authority to legislate against violence.

Furthermore, do we really want to live in a world of police checkpoints, surveillance cameras, metal detectors, X-ray scanners, and warrantless physical searches? We see this culture in our airports: witness the shabby spectacle of once proud, happy Americans shuffling through long lines while uniformed TSA agents bark orders. This is the world of government provided “security,” a world far too many Americans now seem to accept or even endorse. School shootings, no matter how horrific, do not justify creating an Orwellian surveillance state in America.

Do we really believe government can provide total security? Do we want to involuntarily commit every disaffected, disturbed, or alienated person who fantasizes about violence? Or can we accept that liberty is more important than the illusion of state-provided security? Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens’ lives. We shouldn’t settle for substituting one type of violence for another. Government role is to protect liberty, not to pursue unobtainable safety.

Our freedoms as Americans preceded gun control laws, the TSA, or the Department of Homeland Security. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference, not by safety. It is easy to clamor for government security when terrible things happen; but liberty is given true meaning when we support it without exception, and we will be safer for it.
