Bath Township hates flowers

This is another prime example how small, local governments can be detrimental to personal freedom. It is pretty hard to say how these people were hurting anyone by selling flowers. Yet their simple economic action has been deemed illegal by their democratically elected overlords.

One might think that the government would try to encourage this type of entrepreneurship. Especially in this dire economic climate. It would seem that these idiotic zoning rules do doing nothing but put local people out of work.

So-called progressives love to believe in the state's ability to improve the life of ordinary people. But things like this make them look like laughable fools. How could anyone possibly think that these nursery owners now have a better life after being shut down?
