Let's Talk About Variances, EcoFreak Ed.
Yah, yah. One "can't beat City Hall." But: I'm steaming mad right now. For several reasons. a) I'm discovering that I can't build an addition off the house, basically an open floor/dirt grounded, passive solar, glass "extension" greenhouse, because of building codes. And b) due to an archaic law, the well that is on this property may have to be "capped" because it's blah blah nothing that matters in a health and safety sense blah.
These anti-environmentalist regulations are bullshit. They need to be changed. You know what? I'm "underemployed." I have nothing better to do with my time, and a useless education in public resourses and law, and I can make a Living Hell out of the life of the elected public official who wants to enforce this crap in my residential space. Capiche? Don't tell me I can't have chickens, bitch. A friend of mine is raising them in fucking New Jersey, just outside of the City. You'll be chicken scratch when I'm done with you, yo? Local politics: child's play. Don't make me wipe the floor with yo ass, you know?
