  • You Couldn’t Make It Up! Georgia Man Fined $5000 for Growing Vegetables
    The Intel Hub
    By TheAvalonRoundTable

    A Georgia resident who has been an organic farmer for years is now facing $5000 dollars in fines for growing too many vegetables on his OWN land. That’s right.

    Steve Miller, who has sold some of his produce at local farmers markets, as well as growing food for himself, is likely the victim of an Online Aerial Invasion of Private Property. This invasion of property is probably due to the fact that unless visited or inspected by an official, there would be no way for there to be an accurate or factual accounting of what was going on at Mr. Millers property. The question is, “Does Steve Miller legally posses a reasonable expectation of Privacy on his own Private Property?

    Recent reports of Local & State Officials and Bureaucrats using online mapping software have now become mainstream tools for assessing fines and generating money for cash strapped local & state budgets. Does it seem right that anywhere that Google Maps & Bing Maps can go is legal to use as a source of information. If a person was bathing in their pool, with every expectation of privacy, and someone peeked over a fence, wouldn’t that constitute a criminal offense?

    Is the expectation of privacy something the government wants to destroy altogether?

    Is government today at a point where the end justifies the means? In January and February, when he received his first citations, Steve was able to get the property re-zoned allowing him to grow his garden – a right MOST AMERICANS believe he already had. The Declaration of Independence states one’s inalienable right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Isn’t growing your own personal food supply an exercise of that right to Life and Liberty? No Constitutional Government can assess any fee for exercising these inalienable rights.

    In the recent past, Victory Gardens were encouraged. They were the pride of one’s back yard, and of a Nation that was self-sufficient. The television series The Victory Garden on PBS, documents gardening and provides gardening tips and features vegetable gardens as a great personal achievement.

    Historically, Victory Gardens in World War II were encouraged to keep the supply of food at a maximum – and personal growing increased the industrial supply to the military.

    Are people going to let this FASCIST TAKEOVER to continue – even growing a garden in the privacy of our own personal property be taken away? If the answer is NO – then what are you prepared to do about it?

    You can watch the video aired on WSBTV in Georgia – County Sues Farmer for Excessive Crops

    Let them know how you feel about this.

    The question remain unanswered; “How did the code enforcement agency know Mr. Miller had a garden in the first place?” Eat Drink Better

    Addendum:

    Google Maps Criticisms

    Street map overlays, in some areas, may not match up precisely with the corresponding satellite images. The street data may be entirely erroneous, or simply out of date:

     ” ‘The biggest challenge is the currency of data, the authenticity of data,’ said Google Earth representative Brian McLendon. In other words: The main complaints the Google guys get are ‘that’s not my house’ and ‘that’s not my car.’ Google Maps satellite images are not in real time; they are several years old.”[78]

    As a result, in March 2008 Google added a feature to edit the locations of houses and businesses.

    Restrictions have been placed on Google Maps through the apparent censoring of locations deemed potential security threats. In some cases the area of redaction is for specific buildings, but in other cases, such as Washington, D.C., the restriction is to use outdated imagery.

  • I don't think that our powers that be care at all how any of us "feel" about anything.  They will do what they want to do.  And if we don't like it, well, we can suffer the consequences that they are preparing for all dissenters and recalcitrants.

  • what I tried to tell my dad after his usual miltaristic/state worship talk other night, military is usually used against the populace of the nation, not against outsiders.......He feels the Church should promote, like it does with dogmas, the State and the Military...
