"You Can't Feed the Homeless Without a Permit!" --The Gov'ment

 Churches in Jackson, Mississippi are at odds with city leaders over feeding the homeless at a city park.
 I noted an interesting, yet frustrating, note made by The Clarion Ledger:
  • Ben Allen, Executive Director of Downtown Jackson Business Partners, says various churches in the area are showing up with food trucks to feed the homeless but don’t have permits.

Permits = Gov'ment permission. It's getting to the point that being charitable is only something that can be done if the government says its OK.
