A woman in Chester township in Philadelphia gives a free meal to children in her neighborhood every day. She does this from her home.
The town council found out about this. It ordered her to stop this assault on the integrity of her neighborhood. This must be nipped in the bud. If she is allowed to feed children, others in the community might start feeding children in their homes. This violates zoning ordinances.
Feeding children could destroy the community, where average income is $19,000 a year. Doubt me? Just ask the town council.
No one in the community complained. But, hey, what authority do they have? None. They are merely part of the silent sane majority. They do not sit on the town council.
“It’s not my job to go to her,” says the head of the town council.
She fills out all forms for safe food. But this is not about safe food or hungry children. This is about the authority of the town council to tell people what to do. This is what politics is about, right? Telling people what to do? Of course it is.
This is America. This is about democracy. This is about preserving liberty — the liberty of elected politicians to enforce the letter of the law, no matter what. This is about what happens when people surrender control over their property to the civil government
Watch the news report.
This is frickin SAD!!!!
The problem is who is elected into office not the regulations created. Fire the bumbs and replace them with humans.
We continue to vote for the same morons, the corrupt and the criminals. What do you expect in return?
for a lot of those kids it's probably the only food they get. if someone want to feed the kids in their neighborhood then they should be able to do so. It's the christian thing to do, oh that's right they don't want people to do the christian thing. it's not politically correct, which is a bunch of crap.
If they don't want her feeding kids for free just because hse feels like it then that's OK-just a long as they get off their hypocritical butts and do it themselves. It's nothing less than pathetic when government offcials don't have anything better to do than harass people. But then you give miost officials a little bit of authority and they think they are entitled to tell God Almighty Himself what to do.
Take a stand, vote. Be involved in your own community at least.
These so called officials need to be run out of town on a rail. What a sad day for America and the hungry children.
well, doesn't she know the government is the only one that can give away stuff for free and that means taxpayers paying for it? Every day I think the government can't get any more outrageous, but they do.
