Zoning, Just Where Will the Bureaucrats Stop?

Sometimes by examining the supposedly absurd, we arrive at the truth -
Rules regarding swing sets and play sets in Westport will go under the microscope Thursday night at the Planning and Zoning Commission public hearing. A proposal was filed to make them exempt from current setback and coverage requirements.

The text amendment, made by resident Cary Moskowitz, seeks to change the definition of a structure to exclude swing sets and play sets, thus, making them an exception to setback and coverage regulations. Currently, swing sets and play sets must by placed at least 50 feet from property lines.

In the application, Moskowitz said that eliminating play sets and swings sets from the definition of structure would "legalize literally hundreds of swing sets and play sets that are illegal by virtue of their encroachment upon side yard and/or front and rear yard setbacks."
The Real Effect
Still think you own that property that you worked your entire life to pay for? No way, this is a rigged game my friend and you sir are the chump. Incrementally, day after day, rule upon rule they chip away at the rotted corpse of property ownership until one day, you are thankful that you get to use the property that you paid for. But that's right, in America, we always think of the collective good. Isn't there a name for that? Ah, I digress.

So, the question becomes - Just how has this collective ownership worked for our country? The Federal Reserve says much like it did for the Soviet Union -
The United States is on a fiscal path towards insolvency and policymakers are at a "tipping point," a Federal Reserve official said on Tuesday.

"If we continue down on the path on which the fiscal authorities put us, we will become insolvent, the question is when," Dallas Federal Reserve Bank President Richard Fisher said in a question and answer session after delivering a speech at the University of Frankfurt. "The short-term negotiations are very important, I look at this as a tipping point."
But I'm sure this all just temporary and that the bankstas are setting up a parallel system for grins and giggles right? RIGHT? Who's with me?!?
