These "get off my lawn" posts are easily the most enjoyable.
How the fook is this a "get off my lawn" post??
What is a fook?
The way a lady uses her smarts to make a point.
I'm a lady, mack. Watch it
It's a nice way of saying fuck
I didn't know ya needed fancy permits to grow things in the dirt.
Honestly without that bit of knowledge I think you are right.
Not necessarily. People were certainly using pesticides in my grandparents day, just as they are now. I'm not aware of people usually needing a permit to grow things "organic" on their own property, unless they are marketing it for sale as "organic".
Certainly though, all the seemingly nonsensical things we do need permits for these days is a way for somebody besides us to make money.
Nope. Marketing something as such does, however.
You are right, of course. I live in an area that have a lot of plain people who farm the way it's been done for hundred of years. They can't market their chicken eggs, at their roadside stands, as organic because they aren't certified by the government. All their produce is organic but is not allowed to sold as such.
Yup. They really love dictating and micromanaging the simple and cheap into the complicated and expensive. Some of the things that various localities, state, and federal agencies have done to harass small farmers and co-ops over the past decade or so are downright bullshit, imo.
I could't agree with you more.
