    I'm very much a "no" on face value but I am curious as to why they think this is necessary or desirable. Do you know?

    I do think you should require some kind of permit to remove a garden though. There is something of an issue in some UK towns and cities with a trend of paving over front gardens to provide off-street parking. A major problem with that is it removes a lot of natural drainage and increases the flooding in heavy rain.

    That is just plain nonsense. What possible basis is there to stop someone from growing a plant? Ok, if your neighbor is gone and put organic fertilizer all over the yard, that might be something to raise a stink about, but other than that, how can someone be offended by a garden? Is she a vegetable seller?

    That's bulls**t!! What does she gain from giving government more power? Thats just one example of people allowing vast government overreach thats taking over this country. "lightning, you now need to request permission from your local government in order to piss on your own property and plant tomatoes". This is the world my children will live in.

    What does this have to do with political correctness in any way. I didn't know this was about offending gardens.

    You could just take it up with your local municipality it isn't exactly sweeping across the country and it's just a proposal.

    So i'm assuming you believe that the attempt in NYC to ban large sodas is not exactly a sweeping issue but just their problem, which will not spillover in anyway to other municipalities?

    So far yes it seems so every municipality has stuff that doesn't really make sense. If it happened in a small town no one would care. NYC city has soda bans and small towns have incredibly stupid building codes and permits.

    It is about offending people's personal rights and freedoms - which is exactly the MO of the PCLL (politically correct looney left, in case you weren't aware). It has become so bad that even the RRR (self Righteous Religious Right) has started to play as well.

    We could save a few thousand forests of trees if we would stop printing laws to restrict what I say, what I do, what I grow, etc. Government needs to return to governing, not interefering - unless public safety is at risk.
