Wednesday, October 10, 2012 ulterior motives

Ronald Regan once said that the most frightening words in the English language were "I'm from the federal government, and I'm here to help."  Little did he know that local governments would end up as bad or worse.

Florida is refusing to let private citizens feed the homeless on their own dime--it must be done only by the city's government, and only by robbing people who might not want to feed bums.

And now, Glendale, Arizona, is refusing to permit a woman to keep feeding the hungry from a private food pantry she pays for and runs from her front yard.  She's been running this food pantry for seven years, yet somehow, it's now illegal. 

I wonder how close Arizona thinks it is to winning an award for getting people to sign up for food stamps.
