Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
hey, if he had 'victory gardens for bush', or 'vegetables turn gay people straight', or 'kill saddam' stickers on his (non-rusty, late-model american-made FUV) car, they'd be queueing up to give this guy homeowner of the year awards.

my suggestion: tell your friend to do a photo-essay on it and try and get some publicity on it, hell, diary it on kos, what would happen if those morons got 100,000 emails and phone calls, might they start to see how deep in the sand their heads are?

copy to grist, michael moore, and al (is it a bird, is it a plane?) gore...

make some waves, ruffle some feathers, make a big poster saying if you paved over your yard, it's all good, but growing food....should be a capital offence! call the radio station...

how dare he undermine the supermarkets' stranglehold on public food supply? what about the poor mexican aliens who will lose their illegal, repug-fattening work if people start to grow their own food?

osama's behind it....

good thing you can't make bombs from organic fertiliser.

this is right up there with 'no windmills on my skyline' and 'no panels on your roof' levels of vanity and delusion.

we're going down, but hell, we look great!

hey, maybe al gore's tv channel will come and do a reportage.

if your friend wasn't a supernice guy, he might even start countersuing saying rosemary plants bring down the neighbourhood, and he'll only rip up his veggies if the others comply-

dumb rules for one, dumb rules for all-

it's the dumbfuck nation way, how would homer handle it?

i'm surprised he got away with it the first year..

land of the free...did he make sure to only use monsanto-copyrighted seed?

well, there you go.

maybe spraying it all with plastic and calling it an art object will be a last resort.
