Do you get it now?

An article in the LA Times about how the city of Orange is taking a couple to court for removing their lawn and replacing it with less water-hungry landscaping. If you've ever read an article of this type, it's entirely familiar. The money quote's towards the end, though:

"It's just funny that we pay our taxes to the city and the city is now prosecuting us with our own money," Quan Ha said.

So near, and yet so far. Don't you get it, folks? They're the government. That's what they do.

Or, as Borepatch points out, "Welcome to the world of Big Government. Of course they prosecute you with your own money - it's how they roll."
