Re: “City of Oakland Shuts Down Novella Carpenter's Urban Farmstand

Re: “City of Oakland Shuts Down Novella Carpenter's Urban Farmstand”
Oh please... Novella Carpenter should really be called "Cruella Carpenter".
For someone so "mild-mannered" she sure has a thing for killing cute, fluffy critters and get this... "empowering" others to do the same. oh yeah...she says it's green and eco-friendly to do that. Just so you know...it's not.

Going dumpster diving , raising your own plants and respecting nature is all well and good. But this is NOT what Novella Carpenter is all about. At the core, her actions have become a narcisstic, publicity seeking venture and a blight on the community and environment.

The real situation is that Carpenter is not some sort of innocent, "victim". She believes herself to be superior to everyone else and entitled to make her own rules regarding cruelty to animals and basic hygiene and sanitation.

In reality, what she practices is a schizophrenic view of what it means to be a responsible, caring guardian of the Earth. Want to truly be green and low impact on the environment? Let's see if Ms. Carpenter decides to start trapping, breeding and teaching to slaughter feral cats, street rats, homeless pitbulls, etc...Oh, there's also plenty of roadkill. A ready-made, low-impact, eco-friendly protein source. Sound ridiculous?
It actually makes a lot more sense than breeding new animals and using precious resources for their care. Growing plants are one thing, but this is NOT what Carpenter is doing. Thank you to the city of Oakland for showing common sense, by not allowing an individual who causes so much pain and suffering in the community to go rogue.
