Let me bottom line this for you.

The man lives in a taxpayer funded public housing apartment.
He does not get to “live free” and also make his own rules on his own property, when he is “living” on other peoples taxes, and does not own, nor can he even be said to be renting, the property in question.

Sweet Jesus does indeed weep, but perhaps not for the reasons you “feel” he should.

You know, I'm a taxpayer, too. I really don't have a problem with someone growing food on taxpayer funded land to consume or give to other people.

Now, I understand that rules are rules and if there is to be any foliage around such publicly funded warehouses of not yet dead humanity, it must be of the useless ornamental variety, barren and devoid of any nutritional value, eye candy for the lords of those fiefs, if not the sterility of parched earth and pavement.

After all, taxpayers are paying for it!

Now, I'm going to ask you: What is the harm in allowing this man to grow bananas? He isn't doing so for profit, it lets him feel he is doing something useful. He gives them away.

Establish limits, OK. All or nothing? Scorched earth? Every day there are thousands of pages of new rules, rules devoid of any compassion or common sense, but in the name of law and order, this man's banana trees must be cut down

While those in Washington D.C. steal trillions of dollars, and our nations' future.

But hey, everyone has their part to play!

Walk a mile in his shoes and imagine your life with thumbs and stubs. Have something you CAN do. And then watch it cut away for 'the rules'.

I guess it isn't enough that the government wants to slaughter babies in the womb with our tax dollars, they want to slaughter the human spirit, too.
